Heart disease kills more than guns and cars.

The NHP doesn't run ads against heart disease either, so they must think heart disease is not a problem in this country, by yer logic.

You'll find sheriffs department run gun safety classes, while highway patrols push car safety.

Now we're talking logic.

The small minds of the masses are driven by emotion. And they always will be. There's a reason politicians exploit tragedies and have to do so quickly before the masses forget, which they will. There is no time for determining root causes of real problems in the political arena. That's not what politics or legislation is about anyway.

As I shuffled shoeless and waterless through the TSA molesters twice this week it really struck me what a sad pathetic country we have allowed ourselves to become. It's not often I get to have my balls groped by federal agents but yet now it's become the new normal. The masses have truly chosen false safety over liberty. It's easier that way. The trajectory of all empires becomes parabolic when approaching the ground. Weeeeeeeee!

3000+ posts. Holy crap. Impressive I guess.

Sorry for the diversion.

Your balls get squeezed because you would bitch "racial profiling" if the only people to be searched were those who fit the dangerous profile.

Now we are talking about mass transit, airport security, and ball groping... as if that has anything to do with gun regulations?

TSA is largely "safety theater" in much the same way as politicians who rant about assault weapons.

If the mentally deficient are not allowed to own guns then why should they be allowed to make gun laws?

...and had an Egyptian light up the El Al ticket counter with automatic gunfire within minutes of me being there.

In 2002? No automatic weapons there. One of the three dead was the attacker who was shot and then died in a hand to hand knife fight with an armed El Al guard. Both the attacker and the guard had Glock pistols.

Because no sane person could ever argue that the gun laws being proposed would ever be used to kill people. Of course, if you are a fuking idiot, you can create a fantasy world where it does.

Working to CHANGE the system makes SENSE...But failing to find HUMOR at the same time is giving the system far more respect than it deserves..

Missouri Democrats Introduce Legislation to Confiscate Firearms - Gives Gun Owners 90 Days to Turn in Weapons
Fire it up253

Missouri Democrats introduced an anti-gun bill which would turn law-abiding firearm owners into criminals. They will have 90 days to turn in their guns if the legislation is passed.

Here’s part of the Democratic proposal in Missouri:

4. Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall have ninety days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution:

(1) Remove the assault weapon or large capacity magazine from the state of Missouri;

(2) Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable; or

(3) Surrender the assault weapon or large capacity magazine to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction, subject to specific agency regulations.

5. Unlawful manufacture, import, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of an assault weapon or a large capacity magazine is a class C felony.

Missouri Democrats introduced an anti-gun bill which would turn law-abiding firearm owners into criminals.

No, Missouri Democrats introduced legislation to ban weapons which have no purpose in personal self-defense, weapons that have been the tool of choice in several recent mass murders, and weapons that are specifically designed for such acts of mass murder. Nobody becomes a criminal until they fail to comply with that law.

Everyone here knows that such a law will not be passed, so complaining about political posturing is fairly insincere, but I also wish such a bill had not been introduced, it distracts from more effective approaches, and provides Criminal Rights Advocates with ammunition to support their more extreme claims.

In any case, a law-abiding citizen has every right to contact his law-makers to oppose this bill. A law-abiding citizen has every right to challenge such laws in court, and if the law-abiding citizen still feels his rights have been violated, take his case all the way to the supreme court. That is what preserving, protecting and defending the constitution means.

A law-abiding citizen DOES NOT have the right to unilaterally decide that such a law is unconstitutional, declare such laws as tyranny and promote armed insurrection against such laws.

TE,, there is a thing,, known as the 2nd amendment which says all- about guns. When any body of govt comes up with new laws that are in direct conflict with that amendment, they no longer act in the interest of that amendment. It does NOT have a damm thing to do with "keeping society safer". A clear example is attempting to be set by several states. And the launguage of those proposed bills also deal with interstate sales and or transfers of those guns, which is ALSO in conflict with fed laws proposed.. Does any of this make sense? Not one teensie bit. So all those folks in NY will be selling their guns to PA folks,, and MO folks will be selling their guns all in Kansas i suppose? Does any of that make sense? People being FORCED to sell weapons? And sell them without ANY back ground check of any type... Does that make sense?

Ron that it utter bullsh#t. You can't yell out bomb threats in an airplane, despite the 1st amendment. You can't make death threats to the POTUS, despite the 1st amendment. If we the people, through our elected officials, decide we want to limit access to weapons specifically designed to kill dozens of people in minutes, we can do that... yes we can. That is how our system works. If you don't like it, MOVE.

Does any of this make sense?

The way you interpreted it and explained it... of course not!
