He passed the background check because the local Sheriff, a liberal Dem, sh*tcanned the report from the community college declaring Loughner a threat. NICS never got the red flag that would have stopped the loony. He did this because Loughner’s mom was a pal of his, a Corruptocrat just like him who worked for the County.
And then Sheriff Dupnik blamed Sarah Palin for the shooting.
I have to admit this gives me pause.
If a community college can issue a report that someone is a threat, then that person should lose a God given right because someone says he's crazy?
My gut tells me that this "mental health" issue is really what the dems are after and this will end up being the compromise...and we're falling into the trap.
Consider this, in the late sixties it was promoted and excepted by many that felons should not be able to by a gun, I mean after all that sounds so reasonable , right?
The fact of the matter is you are stripping the right away from a class of person simply because it is societally acceptable, Constitution be damned....with the support of many here.
Now it has progressed to persons under restraining orders, Misdemeanor "domestic violence" (yell at your spouse in some states and it's considered domestic violence) and on and on.....
Now, with Obama care being instituted, digital medical records, massive data storage facilities being built, technology that allows the government to accumulate data on your every web post and activity couple with every word you uttered to your doctor, well you get my point.
When we get to the point of "someone" deciding who is mentally "fit" to own a firearm, well I think that is a very dangerous road to go down....an I think it is a trap just like the argument in the 60's..."who could support a felon buying a firearm"?
yes they knew for years this guy was unstable and dangerous. now this explains how he passed the background checks. liberals bypasing the system.
