They say that it will make a come back….thoughts?
Warning: This post will be insulting to those people that are running in fear from the government….if you are offended then I have succeeded in my effort!
I swear that I want to stop writing about the gun debate, but the NRA twats will not let it go! And I feel that I most set the record straight because the NRA or FUX or the whack-a-doo0dles will not….someone most tell it like it is……why not me? I would go quietly into the night if the pea brain, moronic dipsticks on the Right would just shout the Hell up…….but…..NO!
We all know that the background checks bill was defeated because the Repubs were jumping on the talking point that it would create a regisdtry of gun owners and that somehow would lessen our ability to acquire the types of guns that we desperately need to protect ourselves and our families…..and we know that then the government would waltz in a take all our beloved forearms from us leaving us at the mercy of said government…….is that about what they are all bitching about?
I have two things to say on that front…..first, for you mental deficient that live in Wayne’s (LaPierre) World………………. THERE IS NO ONE COMING FOR YOUR GUNS! Especially someone from the government!
Second, the Boston bombers had a shoot out with the cops….recall that? Well, the handgun used is in the possession of the FBI and thet are tracking it to see where it leads….(think about that for a moment)
Third, I have asked this question before and got little response….either they are too stupid to know of what I speak or they are just fucking lazy……so to help out I will say it once again…please pay attention so that I do not have to repeat myself needlessly……I am guessing that all you law abiding gun freaks bought your firearms legally…….you went to Academy or Wal-Mart or whatever, a licensed firearms dealer……and when you dropped your wad of cash unto the counter you had to fill out an ATF Form 4473…..and on the this form your put your name address and section B of said form the type of gun, handgun, rifle, etc is filled in…..the serial number, maker, caliber, all the important stuff….and once the sale is made the form is submitted….
How do you think that the FBI and PDs run ballistic checks that tells gun, caliber and….listen closely…..OWNER! You got that you slow witted twat? You are on record!
Guess what you bubble brains…..there is already a registry….how else could the gun to tracked?
Are you people paying attention?
There is already a registry and if you have bought a gun legally then you are already on it!
So let the NRA keep fanning that piece of bullshit…….the only people that this pack of asshats is helping or protecting is the gun industry….they are making sure that they get their pound of flesh from the people and you people keep falling for one con job after another by the NRA. By the way……your AR-15 is as worthless as tits on a boar against a Cobra….if you think that the government that you are so afraid of will come light to take your guns….then you are a bigger idiot than I first thought!
In case you missed it earlier……There is NO one coming for your guns!
Continuing the break in my weekend protocol……
We still have the back and forth over guns…..all the drama of those “traitors” that voted against background checks……the media cannot let this go…..and of course the gun nuts are fighting everything tooth and nail……and they have found a new slogan to help fight…..”Lefties are suffering from hoplophobia”…….a psychological disorder that is a morbid fear of guns…….sounds all shrinky, right?
The problem is it is……..bullshit!
The Daily Caller discounted the experiences of some victims of gun violence who have promoted stronger gun laws by claiming they suffer from “hoplophobia,” a fake psychological disorder defined by the gun rights movement as “the morbid fear of guns.”
This baseless attack found in the featured article of Daily Caller’s “Guns and Gear” section is the latest salvo from a conservative media that have launched vicious attacks on survivors of gun violence who support reforms to current gun laws.
The Daily Caller article purported to examine “hoplophobia” as an actual psychological condition, asking, “Is America required to accept psychological acting out as a legitimate form of legislative discourse?” However this “disorder” is not recognized by the American Psychiatric Association and instead is a term coined by the late National Rifle Association board member and famed shooting instructor Jeff Cooper.
It is not a legitimate disorder! It is the NRA playing games and making up bullshit because they cannot handle the truth so lies are needed to make the uninformed more pliable.
This is why there is NO logical debate on gun violence…….the opposition will sink to any low to make the debate stall…..LIES are their best weapons……and the sad part is that the American people do NOTHING………they repeat lies…..and believe lies…..all in the name of the Constitution….a document they so love but have NO idea what it is all about……
I believe it was Conan O’Brien that said, “LaPierre is the executive VP of the NRA…..just fucking crazy do you have to be to be the President?”
The time is nearing for the Senate to take up the newest piece of crap on guns…….I was hoping to move on from this issue and ficus on more pressing things…..they will not let me…..
The big deal now is the Manchin/Toomey bill or the Toomey/Manchin bill depending on whether you want the lib or the conserv listed first….anyway few people debating this in the media are giving real facts about the piece, they instead want to debate the merits of such a piece of work…..
Let me help you understand what this bill will do and want not………thanx to Talking Points Memo for the breakdown….
The Gaps It Closes
The legislation closes the so-called gun show loophole by requiring an FBI background check for all firearm sales conducted at a gun show. It requires a criminal check for all commercial gun transactions, including listings posted in a newspaper or on the Internet. It expands an existing law that only requires background checks for licensed dealers, letting unlicensed dealers sell firearms without background checks in accordance with state and local laws.
Gun control supporters are also pleased that the bill ensures record-keeping by the seller on transactions, akin to those already required on background checks that are mandatory. The dealer would need to keep a record of the sales he or she conducts in the event that police need to trace a weapon used to commit a crime.
“I think it does cover a lot of new additional sales and that’s important,” said Horwitz. “The good part about this bill is it has a really strong record-keeping requirement. It extends the requirements in current law for background checks, which we thought was really important.”
The Manchin-Toomey bill gives the FBI 48 hours to block a transaction at a gun show due to a red flag in a buyer’s background, with the aim of reducing that to 24 hours in four years. Current law gives the FBI 72 hours to block a sale from a licensed dealer. If the sale goes through, the FBI would have 24 hours to destroy the data on the buyer. Contrary to a popular myth from pro-gun activists, the bill would in no way create a national gun registry.
The Gaps It Leaves Open
The crucial exemption that worries gun control supporters is that background checks would not be required for private, non-commercial sales or transfers between family and friends. In other words, if two people meet and one decides to sell his gun to the other, he can do so without a background check as long as the sale wasn’t initially advertised.
“The bill covers only purchasers who buy at a gun show or via some kind of advertised sale,” said Jim Jacobs, a law professor and gun control expert at New York University. “It doesn’t require every secondary purchaser to be background checked.”
That same exemption weakens the gun show requirement. A buyer and seller who meet at a gun show can potentially — and legally — make the transaction afterward outside the event without a background check.
“There’s nothing in the law that prevents someone from going to a gun show, finding the gun he likes, then meeting the seller off-site to complete the sale without a background check,” said Adam Winkler, a law professor at UCLA and gun law expert.
“You can simply go to the McDonalds or Starbucks across the street and make the transaction,” said Horwitz.
The Manchin-Toomey legislation beefs up gun rights in other areas. It seeks to make it easier for gun dealers to advertise and sell their firearms across state lines, and protects sellers from lawsuits if the buyer passes a background check but later uses the gun in a crime. And to quell right-wing concerns, the bill includes a penalty of 15 years in prison for any federal officer who seeks to use data to create a gun registry.
Read over all that again and then explain to me where this was anything but a colossal waste of time….where will this help make our children safer?
If it passes the Senate it will crap out in the House…..beyond that it is an illustration of our Congress….toothless and impotent.
Welcome to the world of cowards!
I fully intended to move on from this absurd issue….but…….
Oh goody…..two senators, one from each party, have come to an amazing point in the gun debate…..Manchin of West Virginia and Toomey of PA have stepped up and thrown their weight behind the idea of background checks…….the media is all bound up with joy about this amazing piece of bi-partisan BS. I mean listen to the media and these guys sound like they have discovered a cure of the Eboli virus……this new found optimism is refreshing but a bit naive….at best.
Realistically….it is two guys with a proposal…..a proposal! It will have to be debated and altered by the various senators……and then….
The Senate’s firearms bill would subject nearly all gun buyers to background checks, add muscle to federal laws barring illicit firearm sales and provide slightly more money for school safety measures.
Excluded and facing near-certain defeat in upcoming votes were proposals to ban military-style weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines _ factors in the Newtown killings some other recent mass shootings. But keeping those provisions out of the current legislation did not mollify critics.
Opponents said the remaining proposals were unwarranted intrusions on the Second Amendment right to bear arms, would be ignored by criminals and would do little to prevent future Newtowns. Obama’s plans have received scant support from Republicans and many moderate Democrats, with many saying they prefer improvements in dealing with the mentally ill and stronger enforcement of existing laws.
Gun-control groups have embraced the Manchin-Toomey compromise with varying degrees of enthusiasm, and they continued to applaud it on Thursday while also expressing concerns about some provisions.
Besides the exemption for private sales, gun control advocates expressed displeasure with language letting gun dealers sell handguns to out-of-state customers, exempting some holders of permits for concealed weapons from background checks and shielding individuals who sell guns from some negligence lawsuits.
And then there is the part where once the background check had been performed it would be a felony to keep a record of it……here something to think about……ATF form 4473 Part B questions 21-23 are a background check and the form once completed must be kept on file…..so how will they handle this? When the dealer files the form he will be committing a felony according to these people…..
Ler us be optimistic……say the Senate does something unheard of and passes this bill and it goes to the House…….does anyone really for a moment believe it will make it through the House?
This whole debate/issue is a dead bill….but just suppose it makes it out of the House (pause here for raucous laughter)………it will be something the NRA wants and if that is the case it will be a toothless, impotent bill……just a reflection of the Congress we elect.
With an outside chance that I am mistaken I will post a complete apology here in this blog…….but I am not holding my breath…..
Just a little something to go with today’s post………
