Hoping for another chance on gun loophole

April 26, 2013

At another time, in a different context, Sens. Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey might have been successful in a proposal they and two other senators offered last week....

"ITProber", glad you agree with "Wondering" and me. This country is nearly complete in the quest by its' richest families to become an oligarchy. I'd say it's about 85% there already.

"Just the opposite in Albany where goose stepping tyrants never miss any opportunity to strip New Yorker's of their most basic civil rights." You are SO RIGHT! We are done.

Typo: not should be now. "...not essentially created..." to: "...now essentially created..."

For once I agree with wilford and wondering, in that perception is not always what it seems. Within this country we have distorted fact, fiction and emotion, to where we have not essentially created an attitude with half of the population, that the country has to be dis-armed. It is not the intention of the 2nd amendment to keep arms for just a few, but for the people to stand up against tyranny. We are on the way, people to absolute tyranny. And it didn't start with just Bush. Now I will not defend him, because the Patriot Act was NOT a conservative notion, but the completion of the start of intrusion into our lives. Police state is almost complete. How many cameras do you see now?

Like sign the paper then read it. When Russians say look at, look harder. Cut welfare and maybe they won't come in the first place.

. If they knew 50%of the people had guns and they would be shot,drawn and quarterd and buried in a dump they would never even come.

Perception is personal reality but in some cases, increasingly in the USA, personal perception bears little resemblance to "it is what it is", objective reality. Perception doesn't improve by prechoosing which new info to exclude from consideration.

I probably should add that my statement is not meant to be derogatory to any religion. But when discussing laws we should try to base our decisions on knowledge rather than belief. The NRA has closed itself off to ever gaining any knowledge on the issue.

BJ, Granted, new gun control laws are not the "solution" to mass killings. But "You'll NEVER get compromise from the NRA (when it comes to more restrictions), EVER!" just shows that the NRA is irrelevant to the discussion. That kind of dedication to an idea regardless of any info or reasoning to the contrary is a religious stance which has no usefulness when seeking solutions.

There's no point in having laws about anything. Murder's been illegal since Cain and Abel, and people still kill people every day. So what's the point in trying to stop it? Good people won't murder and bad people will murder anyway even if it is illegal. It's time we got rid of all these laws making murder illegal and stopped trying to craft new heavy handed, big government public policy to discourage murder, when it can't be done.

The notion to kill by murder is conceived within the brain of an individual, not within a mechanical device used to carry out such a deed. Efforts to reduce murder should be pointed at the brain and not mechanical devices. it's so simple to understand that one must wonder of a hidden agenda attempting to be implemented by redirecting the "focus" on something completely irrelevant to the problem at hand. In other words, carefully orchestrated confusion to obtain results obscured by discussion of something different.

Under the current theory of more gun control due to violence, we should now expect background checks on pressure cookers, bb's and nails. This is how crazy lawmakers are today.

You'll NEVER get compromise from the NRA (when it comes to more restrictions), EVER!!!!! and that's not bad. If all the 'Knee-Jerk' reactionary folk would sit back for a moment and examine the Catalyst in most all of our tragic events, they would see it's the mental health issue that is the root cause.....not the weapon of choice. So Gov. Coumo, KEEP Cutting the frickin' OMH and OPWDD budgets, Moron!!!!! Wake Up!!!!!

Pots and toys next.

I like the law student with the 3d printer and the free *.dxf downloads (free gun plans).

I'll take a hammer :-}

The Loophole is a Liberal Myth! The Truth:

The Department of Homeland Security is buying 1,000 rounds of ammunition more per employee than the U.S. Army.

The purchases raise "serious" questions about waste and accountability.

DHS currently has stockpiled more than 260 million rounds. The DHS is buying up ammo to dry up the civilian market?

"there was also anger from those who favor measures that would go further toward infringing on Americans' Second Amendment rights."

That says it all "infringing on Americans' Second Amendment rights." is clearly Unconstitutional!

At least there are few true patriots left in Washington who have the courage to keep their oath of office and vote to defend the Constitution. Just the opposite in Albany where goose stepping tyrants never miss any opportunity to strip New Yorker's of their most basic civil rights.
