The real question is how was it that Sheriff Dupnik kept Jared from facing any charges during the slew of death threats and drug arrests that he racked up during the last year of his descent into psychosis.
Nothing showed up on the background check because all Jared’s LEO run-ins were quietly “fixed”.
But I’d still like to see proposed designs of the giant bullet-proof plexiglass bubble over the Capitol...
In regard to a proposed law by Representative King and Senator Lautenberg to forbid carrying a gun within 1,000 feet of an elected federal official or federal judge, I think the unaddressed problem here has to do with inflammatory rhetoric. For just one example consider that in Fairfax County Virginia guns appear to live passive lives. However, as soon as they cross the Potomac River and enter the Anacostia area of Washington D.C., they become psychopaths when hearing rules associated with rigid gun control legislation.
We need to take a lead from the Obama administration, which has excised such phrases as unlawful enemy combatant and war on terror from any discussion surrounding the events of 9/11 and thereafter. Guns need to understand we are not at war with them. If we approach them with an open mind and without preconditions, then we can arrive at lasting détente.
Using this more embracing, benevolent approach to interacting with guns; legislation should consider ways to make guns feel welcome. Representative King and Senator Lautenberg should propose that individuals with a concealed carry permit, who attend an event at which a Congress person or federal judge appears, must be not more than 1,000 feet from the individual. In this way guns would not feel offended, and would be unlikely to react violently.
Me too, but you just know some idiot is going to put air hole in it.
Well, he was a liberal... could that be it? Did the Sheriff treat conservative 'threats' the same way? I'll bet on blood libel, double standards, politics where it doesn't belong, bias, liberal shenanigans... etc.
