That's an insult to garbage separators everywhere. If I were one, I'd challenge you to a duel.
Is this the same congress that is going to 'reform' illegal immigration?
Read it! Great book, waiting, waiting, waiting for the sequal to print.
Correction: pathological government culture. Corporations have nothing to do with it.
From there, they have found incident after incident to somehow justify their crusade on the RKBA, all funded by our tax dollars, naturally.
I guess the game kept them from ending up as mall security guards somewhere, 'cause you gotta have a Law Degree to be a FeeBIe, and their cannons were a bit loose for the DEA deck.
Which leaves what? Bank guard? Not enough jizz for those operators.
They 'saved' their jobs and only had to kill 82 people to do it.
How many 'throw down' weapons are legal or just plain hot? Think about it. Once they start sniffing buttcracks everyone in the PD is going to be trying to CYA. The guy is going to be a pariah instinctively with the others, out of self-preservation.
WHoa! Careful, there. They "justified" Waco, at least enough to get the Senate Hearing whitewash to stick.
That gives them more 'license' in their minds, not less, 'cause things will be "justified".
Put Hillary at the top and anything goes.
I am not giving him a pass, I am disappointed in him because he has not done so as of yet and these issues have been going on and known for longer than he has been the President. Obviously he won't do it, so it will need to fall on the next President.
I knew that was coming. I shoulda had money on it. LOL
Should be about June.....
I printed it once. I got no beef from the mods, but my firewall was probed within minutes of posting it.
After a minor amount of searching, I found that the IP addr belonged to a company in Langley VA.
If I remember correctly Liddy suggsted head shots for JBT in body armor.
I'm watching the web site.
Great pic - now, I've never tried jackbooted thugdom, but aren't you supposed to pull the ski mask down far enough so's you can see out of it?
The problem here is the authority of the agency. The '68 GCA is outright unconstitutional - it prohibits people from selling Constitutionally-protected property to others across state lines (you have to go through a "dealer"), it prohibits you from dealing directly with manufacturers (just try buying an AR clone directly from Bushmaster, DPMS, etc., or a handgun from S&W, Springfield, Glock, etc. - it won't happen unless you have an FFL) and it allows the agency to ban whole classes of guns from civilian ownership under the unlimited, undefined, unconstitutional and unreviewable standard of "sporting purpose" (which, by the way, was a concept lifted directly from the 1938 Nazi Weapons Law - see http://www.jpfo.org/GCA_68.htm ).
BATF abuses got the '86 FOPA passed, which forced BATF to ease up a bit, and which allowed interstate shipment of ammo and protected interstate travel with long guns. Maybe the abuses now being testified about can bring some more changes for the better.
Wouldn't bother me if you did. I used to work with a lady who had it, as did her husband and children. She scared many people, but I could see beyond her problem. Of course she had it mostly controlled via medication, but you could still tell when she was about to blow, or at least when it appeared she was about to blow.
You didn't even mention the original federal gun control law. The National Firearms Act. It was for violations that act, not GCA '68 or any other "law", that folks were killed at Ruby Ridge (too short) and Waco (alleged machine guns). It's just as unconstitutional as the others. It's alos the only one to make it to the Supreme Court, in a cast which was sent back to the lower court for "further action", which could have been anything, from reinstatement of the charges, to further pleadings and evidence that a short barrelled shotgun did have militia/military usefulness. The machine gun provisions, the associtated tax, and registry, have never been tested at the Supreme Court.
Is this the end of the Alcohol Tobacco Fags?
The man is lucky they didn't burn his house down!
