No gun shops within 5 miles of schools should be nearly impossible. Guess we better outlaw schools.
But, but, it’s for the chiiiiiillllldrrrrennnnn!
Kids who bring guns to school didn’t pick them up on the way to class.
>> I am starting to think that defeating this bozo will be a piece of cake!
I like to put it like this: if McCain can’t figure out how to beat Obama, then he’s not competent enough to be Chief Executive.
Obama’s bill shows not so much that he’s anti-gun, but that he lacks seriousness. There are lots and lots of anti-gun wingnuts in Congress, but they don’t propose laws like this. They know that such a proposal would be silly and would be defeated as such. Though anti-gun, they are serious about what they want and don’t want to be seen as frivolous, silly people. Obama either doesn’t care about how he looks or he doesn’t really care about the issue; or he cares but doesn’t know any better. In either case, this shows that he lacks Presidential timber.
Don’t you have to be 21 to buy a handgun in most states? What exactly is this law supposed to accomplish?
The ol Babtist Church kill the liquor store ploy x 25
The Babtist distance is 1,000feet. Hussein made it 25 times as bad
“As the commenters noted, this would effectively ban gun shops from most of the country, and just about every city.”
This was one of the concepts behind the democrat version of the Gun Free School Zones. This act, ultimately declared unconstitutional, banned firearms anywhere within a 1/4 mile of a school. Take you typical town. Plot the schools. Draw a 1/4 mile radius around each one. In effect, firearms possession was made a felony in large areas.
To compound the problem, the Clinton deputy attorney general wrote an opinion that the term ‘school’ included day care centers and homeschoolers. So if someone baby sat or home schooled, then draw more 1/4 mile circles. What made this so bad was there is no way for one to know if someone a couple of blocks over operated a day care in their home or home schooled. You could be a felon and not even be aware of it. In effect, your choice was to get rid of your guns or face felony charges.
You might also consider exactly how you would plan a hunting trip across state knowing you had to plot each school and gun free school zone and determine a path around each.
Campaign hard for conservatives, because stopping this kind of nonsense is going to take more than keeping Obama out of the White House. The turn the GOP is taking will leave us without anyone in Washington to fight gun grabbing policies.
Hey, Obama knows he ain't got a prayer with us gun owners... so he's going for the Lib's true base, the underage girl rapists, child stalking perverts and North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) votes!
Obama will be much easier to beat than Hillary, IMO. The ONLY reason he’s done so well against Hillary is because they’re not really throwing blows like McCain will do to the winner of the RAT primary. I’m pretty confident that McCain will destroy Obamanation when/IF it comes down to a race between the two of them!
What delivery companies accept firearms to deliver? I don’t have my CCW and I can’t transport rifles without it. I’m just thinking about getting something at Walmart and having it sent here.
Keeping porn shops close just makes sex education easier.
It’s a cost cutting measure.
None of tbis is any of Congress’ business.
Yep all the gun shops I go to would be gone.
Not sure what Obama is, other than a part-time Senator cashing full-time pay checks, but he's no Profile in Courage, that's for sure.
I hope someone is combing through every last detail of anything this leftist twit has every done or said in public life. There must be soooo much material out there if only we can find it. I’ll bet that if any journalists actually bothered to do research they would find out so much that would wreck his chances with a majority of Americans.
btw, someone should thorougly examine his years from law school to the time he first ran for the IL legislature. There are 10+ years of which we know almost nothing except that he was a leftist “community organizer” in the Saul Alinsky tradition — surely it is most likely that there are loads of embarrassing statements, actions, etc. that will doom this candidacy. I think of similar people I knew in college, such as one who went on to be a community organizer with the leftists at ACORN, and I know that Obama has spent much of his adult life saying and doing things that would arouse strong distrust and yes contempt from a majority of Americans. The press is determined not to examine the real career of Obama — but someone’s got to do it!!
