    It looks like Harry Reid has kicked out the assault weapons ban in the firearms legislation because too many democrats wouldn’t vote for it. So it looks like a very watered down version will be introduced in the senate. I guess that just shows what 20 million in lobbying will do for you.

    so instead of a 20 round magazine there will be a 1.4 second pause between the first ten and the second ten…big deal

    And that might just save one life by letting a child duck and cover.

    And another right in the Constitution is gutted for the illusion that it is making us more secure.

    And yet England, for instance, has the same level of mental illness in the population, and how many gun massacres do they have??? Nowhere near what happens here in freedomland.

    Whenever I see this I feel the need to ask: So are you advocating mandatory psych screens? How would you pay for that? Who gets to determine if someone is mentally ill or not? What happens to the folks who are found mentally ill? Or are you saying “Whatever. So there are crazy folks that go around killing others. Can’t fix it. Isn’t happening to me. May as well get used to it. Sucks to be you.”

    Are you retarded? Your hero, W, destroyed the constitution and created an entire bureaucracy to do nothing more than to spy on you! HSA is building the world’s largest data base in Salt Lake City right now, they will have everything you buy, all your personal records, all your phone calls, emails, correspondences. Face it, moron, your rethuglican party is just as responsible for usurping your rights as the dumbicrats! Wake the F up!

    To begin with, England has no existent Constitution, nor does it have anything even remotely resembling our Bill or Rights. The often cited “Magna Carta” DOES NOT deal with the “commoners”. Rather, it deals with the “Lords”, and/or “upper class”, granting THEM some privileges they demanded in order to put up enough resources for the King to wage wars. Thus, the English have had personal firearms – pistols, etc., including those belonging to Olympic Teams, and other sporting organizations – CONFISCATED, to the point at which the old saying: “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.”, has become almost standard in that country.


    English “outlaws” – real ones, who DO exist – don’t tend to use hand guns, or other firearms, on schools; and the “commoners” having had what little weaponry they ever owned taken away from them, don’t have the “resources” for events such as school massacres. (Just incidentally, this is almost a direct reversal of the whole history of English “armament”, if one reads Shakespeare’s excellent renditions concerning Medieval Kings, who ORDERED their subjects to be proficient at archery, own and keep well maintained bows and arrows, and who were known for the armies that defeated even charging Knights on horseback.)


    In the United States, we have some rather specific wording, in the 2nd Amendment: " . . . the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." And, thankfully, our Founding Fathers meant what they wrote – even if today’s politicians don’t believe it. The U.S. Supreme Court dealt with the matter a couple of years ago, back when Washington, D.C., planned to confiscate all handguns. It said, shortly, “IT’S NOT CONSTITUTIONAL! AND, IT’S NOT TO BE DONE!” So, “gun control” freaks are faced with the problem of trying to get around BOTH the written words in the 2nd Amendment, and the equally clear decision of the Court.


    Thus, we have argument about “number of bullets in a magazine”, etc., etc., all peripheral to the single, simple fact: Our Constitution STILL GUARANTEES, and our Supreme Court has clearly upheld the guarantee, recently: “. . . the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” For myself, I let the blatherers blather. I don’t need a “machine gun” to prove myself.

    When you take your stance, you are suppose to face your opponent, not moon them.

    Basic info: The NRA did not shoot children at Sandy Hook. The NRA does not advocate slaughter of innocents. The NRA does support people defending themselves and others from murderers. The proposed ban would render law-abiding people defenseless against assaults.
