Sandy Hook did what Fast and Furious was supposed to do.
All Muslims must turn in their weapons after the Fort Hood shootings. Yeah...right.
Excellent point that the Executive Branch does not have the power to legislate. When is Congress going to catch onto that little detail?
Partially correct. Article 1 Section 7: "All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills."
Revenue bills must originate in the House, but other bills, such as assault weapon ban bills, can originate in the Senate.
To pass ObamaCare, Dingy Harry used a House originated bill, and amended it by striking every single word and turning it into the Affordable Healthcare Act.
Be very careful about accepting emotionally based debates on gun control.
Everyone feels the tragedy of Newtown, but “feeling” is not always rational thought.
We must be very wary of the Lefts emotional ploys.
The # one thing they are playing this time is that it was innocent Children.
Lanza himself was only 17.
The next thing they are pulling is trying to pass legislation based on emotion that uses “Airy terminology”
What is an assault weapon? A rock could be or a machine gun could be.
There is no definition.
This allows them to shapeshift the argument and move the goal posts.
Similarly they are now bandying about the term “Military style feature”
What does that mean?
In 1776 a flintlock was a military style feature!!
“High Cap Magazine”
NY,CA,NJ,MA and some other defined High Cap as any thing over 10 rounds during the last ban.
Now NY passed a law based on Sandy Hook that defines it as 7 rounds.
Next time it will be 5 and the next 3, until they pass the “Barny Fife” law that says you may only have ONE BULLET which must not be in the gun and has to be registered with the local Sheriff.
Sorry, but the control freaks are out of luck. The future is NOW. I can PRINT a plastic gun, a plastic AR 30 Round Mag, and the way to do it is already spread around the world.
The Era of Gun Bans and Magazine Bans is OVER
You can’t stop this. This technology just assured freedom.
The "right" wing will even beg them to do it.
By the time they're adults, they wont even notice the dogs or razor wire.
The gangs in Chicago kill more people in two weeks than were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Nobody is talking because that would be called racist. Above all, no one wants to rock the boat of the illegal drug industry.
