HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- Firearms dealers in states that allow medical marijuana can’t sell guns or ammunition to registered users of the drug, a policy that marijuana and gun-rights groups say denies Second Amendment rights to individuals who are following state law.

More centralizing of power in the name of the war on some drugs.

But, it’s NOT illegal to buy weapons with my tax dollars and give them to drug cartels?

Let me drop this out there for you.

“pseudoephedrine”, a decongestant allergy treatment, is “a controlled substance” now.

The next president needs to abolish the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. And the EPA, the Department of Education, the TSA......

Will they also be required to post a sign saying ‘This stash unguarded’ in a prominent place?

Sorry, I’m actually with the ATF on this one, until such time as the 4473 form is changed to exclude marijuana. That’s a whole different argument, and I might be opposed to that exclusion, since (by experience) I know full well Kind Bud can alter your perception. You need best-perception to handle firearms.

But no problem selling a weapon to someone that stops at the liquor store on his way home.

Yep, ALL executive regulatory agencies need to be abolished.
If a policy with the force of law needs to be enacted, let (make) Congress do it.

Basically means card-carrying liberals can’t buy guns. Since liberals are gun-haters who attach super mystical black-magic powers to the gun itself, it is doubtful any of them want the guns anyway. On the whole, this will inconvenience a grand total of three people in the entire country.

I'm pretty sure Schlitz can alter your perception as well.

ATF has outlined its purpose - if it ever had one.

Its time this GESTAPO of paramilitary thugs was defanged permanently and “Fast and Furious” is the tonic with which to purge it - permanently.

So let me get this straight...

People in compliance with state laws, and (if addicted) entitled to special protections under provisions of the federal "Americans With Disabilities Act," are disqualified from protections guaranteed by the Constitution...

...this absurdity is perverse and reflects the absence of clarity and consistency that is inevitable when society and its representative government have no moral compass or guiding philosophical principles.

It will get worse.

THC does alter one’s perception of depth, that’s one of the arguments to create laws for driving while high from smoking dope.
