these bills have no traction...

....but you might see some traction once the election is over....and more after the new year...depending on how the election goes.

The famous Bank of America robbery in North Hollywood is, I believe, the only crime in our country’s history in which a large amount of ammunition was used - meaning more than the typical shooter has at home. This is purely an attack on the Constitution, this time targeting the Second Amendment, and it has nothing to do with public safety.

Lefties are so stupid. The guy owned 6K rounds so what? I know people that have ten times that. He only used 50-75 rounds of .223, 8rounds of 12 gauge, and 15 rounds of .40 s&w. How did the internet cause it? He could buy that at Walmart today.

They just need to find some way to get some rights taken from the law biding citizens.

Given they want to limit ammo to nuts, how many should nuts like the accused be allowed to purchase? ;)

I was traveling yesterday.

On my way home, i heard the tail end of Jesse Jackson’s radio show (yes, he has one).

He had John Conyers on, some police chief i never heard of and another guest.

They were all beating the drum for reinstituting the “assault weapon ban” and limiting ammunition. They continually misstated what the thinking was behind the formation of the 2nd Amendment.

One of them actually stated that if the Founders were alive today, they would have written in the Constitution restrictions on guns like the AK-47.

While it is easy to condemn McCarthy and Frankie the Laut for being tyrannical despicable pieces of filth, the real problem is the voters who repeatedly re-elect them. the NY Kongressional contingent is the primary reason that I and many other people in “fly-over” country hold New Yorkers in such contempt. (New Jersey too for that matter) The people there are for the most part not deserving of the freedoms that this country was built on. It’s bad enough that they wish slavery to the government for themselves, but they constantly try to force it on the rest of us.

Yet the fr jackboot lickers will tell you that the police are on our side. The minions of the government are there to protect the government and implement the government's commands, not follow the constitution any more that Barry boy and the remainder of his Democratic accomplices follow the constitution.

Assuming dead people, covict’s, union double dipper’s, pet’s, or cartoon character’s votes are being counted.

Voter fraud exists, but McCarthy won her last election by 89828 to 77483 (Becker) There is no possibility that there were 12 thousand fraudulent votes out of 89,000. There were probably a few hundred, but the problem is New Yorkers not voter fraud. She was originally elected and continues to be elected on a single issue - gun control. New Yorkers are like plague rats they spread their filty liberal ideas everywhere they go.

Hows about they pass a law to make it illegal to administer frivolous federal study grants for paranormal "science" study to undeserving mentally defective students allowing them to purchase weapons of all sorts

we dont need congress to fund sociopaths to study the relationship between imagination and reality , and we dont need their help to limit access to ammo

if the founders were alive today, they would be advocating the violent overthrow of an out of control despotic autocracy , just like they did in 1776

thats why the pudgy elitist socialists are so scared of guns, they know that the intent of the second amendment was to allow the oppressed to overthrow them ,

the 2nd amendment has nothing to do with shooting ducks, its about a fed up citizenry blowing the bloated overspending constitution shredding tyrannical meatbags to kingdom come

and that might require 100 round clips

In the case of Lautenburg he got elected by bending the rules.
I can’t remember the exact details but it was one of those situation where he stepped in to take the place for another canidate that was ineligable.
The problem was it was AFTER the time period he would have been eligable.
Otherwise, his Republican opponent should have won by no contest.

How long are we going to allow these things to happen? We are fighting these laws within a system that is so unconstitutional and corrupt it's impossible to win. It's time to draw a line in the sand with this monstrous government. We have evidence the military is preparing for action against U.S. citizens on our soil, and no one can be certain of their response to those types of orders. We like to think there are enough people in the ranks who would resist, or at least refuse, unconstitutional action against the people but no one can be sure of what will actually happen.

We must demand that our Constitutional right to bare arms isn't infringed upon any further. It's obvious we are nearing a time of contfontation with those unconstitutional people within our government, and it's obvious they are building their strength while they take ours away. It's ridiculous to let our rights be taken away in such a blatant manner while doing nothing to oppose it outside of the corrupt system that is imposing it on us. We can't save our Constitution from within our unconstitutional system, and that's something everyone needs to start understanding regardless of their response to it.

Obama has no respect for our Constitution, and he will kill as many innocent American patriots as it takes to achieve his leftist revolutionary goals. All he is interested in is how his orders will be received. Obama’s beliefs are the same as those he befriended before the Presidency. The most radical leftist that our nation has ever seen, and who have shown they will use violence. He is the one attempting to bring a radical leftist revolution to our nation, and we have to respond or give up. We are being pushed into this position, and our founding fathers knew this day would come which is why they gave us the Constitutional right to revolt. It's time to make a decision on what you are prepared to sacrifice in the confrontation that's coming regardless of your actions. I hope it ends as peacefully and positive as possible, but people need to be organized and prepared for any outcome.

“Voter fraud exists, but...”


here’s a better explaination from wikipedia:

Democrat Robert Torricelli, withdrew his candidacy for reelection because of corruption charges. The New Jersey Republican Party challenged the replacement of Torricelli’s name on the ballot with Lautenberg’s, arguing that it came too late according to state election laws. The ballot name change was upheld by the New Jersey State Supreme Court, and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up the case.

Me again,
Regardless of how the SC claimed it was to late. Its as simple as there is a 30 day time period and it was past 30 days.

“...The largest mass murder only needed 1 gallon of gasoline...”

Actually, the largest mass-murder to date in this country used a couple armored vehicles from Fort Hood, a bunch of ATF agents and other assorted alphabet F-Troop agencies, and over 80 men, women and children died in a little place called Waco, Texas.

But hey...it doesn’t count when the government does it. It only counts when some liberal posterboy nutjob does it...

He purchased 6,000 rounds. But he didn’t use that many. The amount he used could have been bought at Walmart over a couple of weeks’ time.

It’s good that they’re wasting their commie time on trying to pass that bill. There’s no way that it will pass. But they have already succeeded in scaring millions of law-abiding, suburban and urban Americans to “stockpile” more ammunition.

Has anyone ever noticed that if a Senator or Congressman get busted for let's say driving under the influence or driving while on sleep aids they never ask for more stringent laws against such acts. And another thing when they write laws against insider trading for DC then I will begin to think they give a damn.

It is sooo nice to know that at least one educator in Miami practices true Diversity.
