Incoming Republican congressman
signals openness to gun control

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/28/2012 2:01:14 PM

An NRA-backed incoming congressman from Utah said Friday he would be open to a discussion of some gun-control measures in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., elementary school shooting. "I would consider looking at some of the larger magazines and other things if it gave us an opportunity to talk about the other things as well," Rep.-elect Chris Stewart told The Salt Lake City Tribune. "Let’s talk about the big picture." Stewart said that "big picture" must include increased outreach and treatment for those suffering from mental illness.

Comments:
Ain´t this grand. You will note you never hear Democrats coming forward, it´s always Republicans. To be terribly redundant, if you give Democrats an inch they will take a mile.

He hasn´t even taken his Oath to protect the Constitution, and here he is, admitting that he will violate that Oath!
Republicans have a death wish, and I am not going down with them.

The "Big Picture" Representative-Elect is called the Constitution, perhaps you´ve heard of it. The writers of the document even included a process for amending it. Let´s try following the rules already written, for a change.

Why is it that liberals only talk about the high "expense" of things when it involves self-defense or national defense?

Hope Mr. Stewart hears from a lot of his constituents and they straighten him out.

#4: he will. I wouldn´t trust Justin Sink not to be putting a spin on the comments either. Sink is among the worst of the worst for slanting news coverage.

Still, Utah voters will not be amused.

He is probably referring to the Democrats possibly taking a reasonable position on this issue, but that will not happen, as the liberal Democrats, headed by VP Biden, are now on a mission to ban as many firearms as possible, and put all the remaining guns and gun owners in a government data base that they can someday use as a basis for confiscation of all firearms, after some nut case carries out a horrific shooting sometime in the future.

Incoming soon to be outgoing.

They tried this selective model nonsense on Japanese motorcycles back in the eighties (prompted by heavy donations from Harley Davidson) and the Japanese outsmarted the U.S. Government on every rule. Now we have several models that exceed 200 mph and the accident rates have actually gone down. (It´s not the bike stupid, it´s the rider.)

That was excellent, #7.

What this country needs is millions of people with anti-tank weapons, plastic explosives, armored vehicles, automatic weapons, grenades, rockets and millions of rounds. Our enemy can not be slowed down or stopped with semi-automatic anythings. Get serious. The next twenty years is going to make Beirut look like a picnic.

My guess would be that the Dems opposition research team found something particularly bad in Mr. Stewart´s past and had a little talk with him prior to his "conversion" to gun control.

I see no room for further discussion regarding ´gun control´ and would find no restrictions on the people the be binding or legitimate. We are meant to be a free people - the politicians be damned.

We, and Utah, get the politicians we deserve. If 51% of the voters want ALL gun owners finger-printed, it shall be so. You don´t think the government has a list of American gun owners? No like being fingerprinted? No problemo! No tax refund.

the left was waiting for this kind of stupid olive branch from laPierre and never got it.But here comes a nwely elected RINO giving them a ray of hope in dismantling the 2nd amendment.

Never give the left nothing until they make serious concessions first.Boehner was making concessions while Obama was still swinging a golf club. McConnell says he hadn´t heard a word from the dems since Thanksgiving but I just heard the news blame congress for the fiscal cliff.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. military and American intelligence agencies have quietly pushed the White House in recent weeks to deny a new Russian surveillance plane the right to fly over U.S. territory. This week, the White House finally began consideration of the decision whether to certify the new Russian aircraft under the so-called “Open Skies Treaty.” And now the question becomes: Will the spies and generals get their way? As the United States and Russia face off publicly over Ukraine, behind the scenes, President Obama’s national security cabinet is having its own quiet feud over a

WASHINGTON—Speaker John Boehner and other senior House Republicans are telling donors and industry groups that they aim to pass immigration legislation this year, despite the reluctance of many Republicans to tackle the divisive issue before the November elections. Many lawmakers and activists have assumed the issue was off the table in an election year. But Mr. Boehner said at a Las Vegas fundraiser last month he was "hellbent on getting this done this year," according to two people in the room. A spokesman for Mr. Boehner didn´t dispute the account but said no action is possible until President Barack Obama

One of the few laws of political science is that when governments make mistakes, they tend to be whoppers. Luckily for them, the public’s memory is short, and the outrage of today soon declines into the apathy of tomorrow. From several articles published in a recent edition of the British Medical Journal, it appears that many governments around the world, including those of Britain and the US, may have made such a mistake in stockpiling billions of dollars’ worth of anti-flu medications, bought principally from Roche, the largest pharmaceutical company in the world as measured by capitalization. First the governments overestimated the

Conservative leader and Catholic L. Brent Bozell III today blasted Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for mimicking the pope´s Holy Week foot-washing tradition while touting her immigration reform legislation: "I am a Catholic and I am offended at Minority Leader Pelosi´s continued abuses of the Catholic Church´s teachings and traditions. As a Catholic who has watched Ms. Pelosi champion one anti-Catholic cause after another, I believe this to be sacrilegious. "Christ taught the washing of the feet as an act of utter humility, while she turned a sacred religious tradition into a grandstanding political publicity stunt.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
