On Saturday March 2nd, Thomas Shellenberger wrote a piece that the News Journal despite it’s better judgment, allowed to be published…. The headline was the boring and is so common lately, it is usually panned: Disarming the law abiding is not sound gun control.… Why is this inane?
Because it is not even part of the equation. To put it into proper perspective, it was as if the proper answer to preventing Newtown’s shooting, was that we needed machines emitting secret rays that make guns jam up as soon as they are brought on premises; it is that far out there…. This opinion piece is simply aimed at pandering fear over having imaginary entities football-tackle gun owners and steal their guns; and nothing else. And by now three months after Dec. 14th, no one believes it anymore.
I can remember when people believed aliens were dissected at Roswell. (And for all I know they very well could be). But,…. whether they were or not, it has not impacted my life one way or another… Likewise, the giant controversy that swept up Mike Castle in its eddy (whether Obama was born in Kenya), was nothing but a giant distraction designed to gin up ignorant people to hold out the unrealistic hope that such could be true and a non-black would then become President… Again, it had nothing to to with any practical purpose and only had one effect: to make every one its believers appears as the stupidest, most ridiculous, idiotic, imbecilic, deranged, dumb-ass, and incompetent human beings ever to exist on this planet. Shellenberger seems to be pushing the same kind of argument. Here is why.
- No one cares about law abiding citizens; get this: they are not even a part of the equation.
- The criminal justice system of Delaware had nothing to do with the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.
- No law abiding citizen will be disarmed by the anticipated plans soon to be put in place by Biden and Markell.
- Having a No-gun rule around young children is extremely good common sense.
- If the police want new sales of assault weapons banned, who are you to want otherwise, .. a criminal?
- Evidence supports the ’94 assault weapons ban could possibly have had a positive effect on decreasing mass killings.
Those tired arguments put to rest, here is exactly why we do need more regulations upon guns.
- There is not enough regulation at the moment.
- It is too easy for the wrong people to get their hands on a gun.
- The NRA has purposefully made tracking guns as difficult as possible to enable criminals to shoot people with impunity.
- There is now less level of responsibility involved with owning a gun, than having a 16 year old driving a car.
Then there is this very tired old line…. yawn….
“until we fix the criminal justice system so the laws already on the books are enforced and provide a meaningful deterrent, passage of any new laws only interfere with law abiding citizens….”
oh, oh… I must have dozed off there a second…
That is exactly the problem. There are not enough laws… Granted, there are enough laws in some places, but right next to those places, are spots where there are no laws against purchasing any weapons at all. Chicago has a store across its county line that sells 10% of all confiscated guns acquired by Chicago law enforcement. Everyone of those is sold legally. California has Nevada, where a very high rate of confiscated weapons come from. Mississippi has no laws. There is an Iron Pipeline it is called that funnels guns bought in Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia right up 95 into New York City… EVERYONE OF THESE GUNS WAS BOUGHT LEGALLY…..
So how can you enforce laws on the books when there are no laws on the books? Duh.
Crash. (The argument of the NRA and Schellenberger just shattered on the floor….)
Here is what we do need… Simply put, and no legal person has to worry about a thing…..
- A national background check that pinpoints every known gun, to an owner who is responsible for that weapon.
- Requirement that stolen guns get reported ASAP or owner is charged with conspiracy in crime he was accomplice to.
- As requested by police, a ban on the sales of new assault rifles.
- A ban on high capacity clips.
- Liability insurance up to $1 million on every gun owned. The insurance conglomerates can figure out the price and deductions.
Obviously any sane gun owner has nothing to fear. So why are gun owners so frightened? Are all the weapons in their possession bought at shows and are formerly stolen and they don’t want anyone looking at the registration number to find out?
Yes. Of most of the gun owners I know, yes, they are very worried about this. That is exactly why they are so kooky over this common sense legislation that will both protect their 2nd Amendment rights and our right to live without fear of gun nuts on the loose….
Donald Trump has a small penis. (His overcompensation gives it away). He wants America to appreciate small things. And most importantly, he wants to use his massive amounts of money make others do so, even if by funding a candidate up to the $200 million dollar level now that there is no limit….
Senator Ted Cruz envisions himself as President some day. He will need money…. Lots of money. His own supporters (the former Tea Party) are poor. The wealthy in his state do not like him so he can’t count on Texas. He will need a big donor when he makes his run.
Dick Durbin is up before Ted Cruz as a candidate for the President’s Secretary of Defense. “Dick” Durbin is rumored to have a big dick because his wife is always smiling.
Ted knows, that if he is very hard on Mr Big, (Dick Durbin) he will catch the eye of Donald Trump. If he stymies Mr Big (Dick Durbin) he will get noticed even more. Furthermore, Ted Cruz also knows some of his party compatriots, also have hard-ons for the presidency, and they also are planning on being anti-Big to get Donald’s eyes as well.
Ted Cruz knows he has to be the biggest, baddest, Dick (Durbin) basher on the committee, if he wants Donald Trump to fund him through out the primaries, instead of another suitor….
Every Republican Senator tries to one-up the other when it comes to bashing Dick, and that, explains the irrationality of the entire hearing, the filibuster, and the vote.
The behavior was certainly irrational if one considers the state of the country, the lost election, the armed forces, the sequestration, the upcoming NATO meeting on the future of Afghanistan. But it very rational, very rational indeed if you have no money and are looking for a Sugar Daddy to spread apart, open up your path into the Presidency….
Substitute Adelson, Israel, Chuck Hagel, and you finally have an idea of what was going on with the Chuck Hagel hearing and vote.
Who got to him, is the topic of a different story.
But here is proof that Donald Trump himself, at one time agreed with most of America now, and thought that raising taxes on the wealthy, was a really super good idea….
It was 1999, and Donald Trump was eying the Reform Party’s nomination.
Trump was proposing a onetime net worth tax on individuals and trusts worth 10 million or more. By his calculations, a 14.25 percent levy on such net worth would raise $5.7 trillion and wipe out the debt in one full swoop, grant a middle class a tax cut, and keep Social Security afloat…..
“The plan I am proposing today does not involve smoke and mirrors, phony numbers, financial gimmicks, or the usual economic chicanery you usually find in Disneyland-on-the-Potomac”, Trump said.
If it was great then, Donald Trump… It sure is good now…..
Seriously, since we are deciding the fate of the world as put by the Guardian, but they termed it the “fate of the free world.”
Which is more relevant?
A) College Transcripts and Passport Applications from before 1980?
B) Tax Returns for 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005m 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000?
Every Presidential wanna-be releases 12 years of tax forms: Why hasn’t Mitt Romney? The American People want to know, Donald… Where is your bet to Romney to publicly release his income tax returns before 5 o’clock, Tuesday, October 30th?
Donald, the American people have questions. The American people need to know if their president has violated any tax laws or has committed any crimes before putting Mitt Romney into the White House… Oh, he’s your guy. That’s why you went back 40 years asking for some dumb transcript…..
Donald, you are such a joke….. Ha, ha, ha… (psst. We are laughing AT you, .. not with you…)..
The candidate will be none of those currently running… So who is your guess on who will jump in to save the Republican Party?
“I’m starting to think we really ticked off Mother Nature somehow, because we’ve been getting spanked by her for about a year now,” he said while grabbing some coffee at a convenience store…..
OF COURSE YOU DID, DUMMY. YOU VOTED FOR REPUBLICANS!
This is the guy he wants to handle America’s finances…. Oh man, what a horrible faux paux… One must wonder. Did Huckabee go to school? Or is his knowledge, based entirely from his reading the strips of toilet paper (newspapers).. kept inside his state’s bathrooms (Arkansas outhouses).. …
Can you believe a presidential candidate even dared to say this is who should replace Geithner? What does he do all day, watch TV?
Of course it’s fun and games… but you bet the paparazzi would be watching closely when Trump and Germany’s Angela Merkel get together…. looking for a little face-plant there…
That has got to be the dumbest thing ever said in Iowa…..
