Skip to comments.'Inconvenience' a silly reason to block background checks

As I write this, some patriotic American is expressing his love of the Second Amendment at a mall in Columbia, Md.
We know two things will happen. A lot of people will talk about things that should be done, and nothing at all will happen because our political leaders are terrified of that tiny minority known as the National Rifle Association.
This isn't about taking anyone's guns away. It isn't about preventing anyone from buying and owning the most obscene weapons, weapons the founders would never have envisioned. It isn't even about those poor, sad men who believe they need state-of-the-art weaponry if the time ever comes to overthrow the government.

It's retards like the clown that wrote this who should be prohibited from ever owning guns. The boy ain't right in the head.
Inconvenience is a silly reason to block voter ID laws.
Inconvenience is a silly reason not to prevent any random resident to use a car to drive to a bank
Every day, dozens of bank robberies occur with the use of a car.
Some even result in fatalities!
How many people drive to a bank each day?
A tiny minority!
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be Infringed”
No bias there.
I could not get past the hyperbole in the 3rd paragraph.
*** It isn’t about preventing anyone from buying and owning the most obscene weapons, weapons the founders would never have envisioned.****
Would they prefer the killer had used a Claymore broadsword, in use when the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution?
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President
The rule of law is dead.
Indeed. He’s cancelled much of the first amendment too.
“....using jojo bidens favorite and approved weapon similar to the one the “lyin’ king” uses on sporting clays almost every weekend. Glow-bull warming permitting.”
Citizens voting is a right AND a privilege. Bringing a legitimate ID to the voting place is the least one should have to do to assure honest voting across the land. How anyone can see it otherwise is outside the realm of common sense.
The well-known Chicago way of conducting an election is having its way with America.
There’s a huge possibility that the Chicago way of elections (vote early vote often, vote Daley) is how the Manchurian candidate got elected to Congress in Illinois in the first place. From that his handlers parlayed the man with a complexion into the national spotlight and used the Chicago way to get him elected president.
Let’s give everyone a background check. that way we’ll know if they are qualified to vote, hold a job around children or the elderly, who we can trust with money and who we can’t, and yeah if they can shoot well with a handgun or rifle. Those who can’t shouldn’t be allowed to own ammunition.
To know that there are people in this country who actually think this drives me to despair.
I recently did a web search using these words:
nra blocks funding
This has to do with research related to gun violence in the USA. Is this simply because they do not trust the government to investigate the matter? It seems to me the NRA would have an interest in obtaining accurate information in terms of how often guns are abused or cause innocent deaths. What is your take on this?
If our standing army has it, then the citizens who empowered that army should have it, too.
GUNMAN IN MALL SHOOTING HAD NO CRIMINAL RECORD
“There are a lot of unanswered questions,” McMahon said at a news conference. Aguilar purchased the shotgun legally last month at a store in neighboring Montgomery County.
I did the same search, clicked on an NYT article, and I think Chris Cox explained the NRA’s position quite well.
I know I dont trust the fedguv to research fiddly. Nor is it in their purview to do so.
And yet don't these same people assure us that the right to privacy is what justified the killing of 50 million unborn people?
The only thing that keeps a liberal's head from exploding is the thickness of his cranium.
And the numbness. Even your best shaft and broadhead can’t penetrate there WT.
Thank you. That makes sense. In the scheme of things, it is difficult to find any research that is not tilted politically one way or another. In the case of citizen gun ownership, I cannot understand why it would *not* be in the interest of the NRA to bring to light incidences of accidents and abuse. I would think sound public policy would instill certain qualifications, among them personal training to be subsidized by . . . constitutionally informed producers.
” men who believe they need state-of-the-art weaponry if the time ever comes to overthrow the government.”
More when the time comes. :-)
C’mon now, the truth will never get in the way of these pansies pushing for registration/confiscation.
No. Private training would be best. “Constitutionally informed” means the trainers who understand the separate nature of a citizenry holding its government in check. Required? Not sure how that comports with the text we live under. Extreme example, but I don’t think we want to have 6 year olds purchasing firearms independent of legal supervision.
The founders envisioned "progress of science and useful arts. You could look it up. They also envisioned amendments to the Constitution; you could look that up, too. So I guess you need to get busy and convince Congress that it is necessary because of the particular progress you mention. If its necessary, it shouldnt be hard to get a simple majority in 3/4 of the states.
No doubt that it should be a snap to get that simple majority in 3/4 of the states. Pretty simple. :>)
Well, you won't accept any of the real reasons, so what do you suggest people use?
Besides, you guys are always claiming the slightest "inconvenience" to your dead and/or illegal alien voting constituency constitutes disenfranchising them, so why isn't it adequate to protect an enumerated civil right?? (Don't have a car, agoraphobic and won't go to town, can't read, can't afford $4 for a photo ID, etc.)
I don't think it's so much about "overthrowing" the goobermint as being able to resist should the goobermint try to overthrow THEM.
