Vice President Joe Biden, in remarks today before a meeting on guns, suggested the Obama administration is seriously considering outlawing unregulated "private" gun sales:"And so the kinds of things that there´s an emerging set of recommendations, not coming from me but coming from the groups we´ve met with," said Biden today, before a closed door meeting on gun control. "And I´m going to focus on the ones that relate primarily to gun ownership and the type of weapons can be owned. And one is,
Actually enforcing this idea would be easier than one might think. Assuming they pass laws requiring the registration of all firearms and the subsequent updates to their database whenever a private owner sells his gun to a dealer, anytime a gun shows up as having been sold to a dealer or is confiscated from an owner and the name associated with the serial number is not the one in the database, bingo you´ve got a legal case.
Resist the current gun grab control initiatives and same´s attack on the Second Amendment by the current socialist Washington administration whose ultimate goal is to disarm law-abiding U.S. Citizens in any fashion.
It is odd to me that the Feinsteins and Bloomburgs of our country fail to recognize that 6 million Jews were slaughtered in WWII because they could not defend themselves.
These same Feinsteins and Bloomburgs and Hollywood anti-American socialists employ “protection” but wail against you and I protecting ourselves and those for whom we are responsible.
I choose not to be a victim. I presume you too choose not to be a victim and defend, under the provisions of the Second Amendment, those about whom you care and bear the responsibility of defending in unexpected extreme circumstances.
Put the mentally ill away. Do the same with criminals and enforce what is on the books currently.
In short, resist all of Hussein’s current contrived gun control crisis Bow-Boy´s trying not to waste.
Now for my take on the headline and on what biden said.
Headline: "Biden Hints at Outlawing Unregulated Private Gun Sales"
There is an obvious contradiction because if unregulated private sales are outlawed, a private sale would not be private as it would be subject to a federal background check. Biden hinted that private sales would be outlawed.
Re: #12 - What Biden said was the following: "And so the kinds of things that there´s an emerging set of recommendations, not coming from me but coming from the groups we´ve met with. And I´m going to focus on the ones that relate primarily to gun ownership and the type of weapons can be owned. And one is, there is a surprising -- so far -- a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. Not just close the gun show loophole but total, universal background checks, including private sales."
How about commenting on why citizens need further restrictions on the type of gun that can be owned? We are not talking about fully automatic weapons here. How does the executive branch have legal standing to interfere with the private sale of legal firearms among private citizens? Why - still - no focus on the mentally unstable? Why further restrict law abiding citizens? No one hawking gun control can articulate how further restricting law abiding citizens from possessing currently legal firearms will have an impact on criminals or criminality.
The wolf is at the door?! Apparently Biden has assumed the role 0f 0bama´s, ´BIG Bad Wolf,´ huffing & puffing and threatening to blow the house down, eh? ...These statist politico guys really do seem to attempt to shred the U.S. Constitution and that Life & Liberty for which it stands at every waking moment, eh? The fruits of their labor are severely tainted. s/
Will you folks stop touting the tool by which they will take our rights away? Do you not see you are walking right into their net?
"Mental instability" to a liberal is anyone who doesn´t think the way they do and since they make the rules now, do you think for one minute they will let anyone who does not goosestep to their tune own a gun? No, you will be labelled "mentally unstable." Mental illness in this day and age is unlimited and can be defined and redefined at will by these people and you want to hang our Constitutional rights on such a vacillating and subjective criteria. They are not plain dealers. They will not play by the rules. They believe the ends always justify the means and the only way their ends can be achieved is to disarm those who get in their way. History should have taught us this by now.
Grow up!! This isn´t a high school debate, it is a battle and if you don´t get your mind into that mindset you will lose. And when you lose this battle, you lose the war.
No gun nor ownership should be considered illegal. Of course you don´t want to allow someone who is incarcerated or on parole having a gun, but any free person who is not deemed incompetent should be able to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights without encumbrance of any kind. I don´t even like background checks. If people commit crimes (robbery, assault, murder, etc.) throw the book at them. Otherwise, there is nothing more to discuss. "...shall not be infringed." There is nothing in there that says "except when..." or "however, states can regulate..." or "unless the President or Congress..."
Take Heed of #23´s words. I work on Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. The Heath Control law mandates the use of these sytems by ALL health care providers by 2014. The health control bill also mandates these system be interoperable so in effect everyone´s entire medical history will live on forever in a database legally accessible by the government: every illness you ever had, every prescription you ever took, every diagnosis for you ever made will be in there. Then they can and will define "Mental instability" broadly enough to include all sorts of relatively common, often transient, conditions which will make you ineligible to exercise your 2nd ammendment rights, and they can do that at the bureacracy level without bothering with Congress. Diagnosed with ADHD when you were in 5th grade = NO GUN FOR YOU. Had a bout of mild depression after your divorce = NO GUN FOR YOU!, Diagnosed with a bit of PTSD after serving your country = NO GUN FOR YOU.
BTW - You should all stop calling the Health Control bill "ObamaCare". It has nothing whatever to do with care. It is all about control. For effective control you need information, hence the mandatory requirement that all health care providers move to EHR systems and allow the feds access to them.
Poster #28, as I understand it, there is a strong LEO presence at the local gun shows.
The day after a recent gun show closed, there was an article in the newspaper about a parolee and two other men who pooled their money to purchase a weapon. As the men were walking to their car, LEOs arrested the parolee for possession of a unauthorized gun, and the other two for conspiracy to purchase the unauthorized gun.
The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News
The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be
When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.
It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city. "I´m going to be a successful mayor because of it, because it´s going to give me a level of independence," he told the Advance in an exclusive interview. "I´m not constructing a campaign around the approval of my peers. I´m constructing a campaign around the aspirations of my neighbors."
Rush Limbaugh began his radio show Monday morning by addressing the news that Cumulus Media, the second-biggest radio broadcaster in the country, plans to drop his show from its stations by the end of the year. Limbaugh assured his readers that “nothing is going to change” in terms of their ability to hear him every morning. “There was another POLITICO story that ran last night on this program,” Limbaugh began, referring to Dylan Byers‘ report. “Someday, I am looking forward to detailing all of this for you,” Limbaugh continued, but for now he said he “must use proper business restraint.”
Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew, who oversees the IRS, made the rounds of four Sunday morning TV talk shows (all but CBS’s Face the Nation) to promote President Obama’s latest “pivot” to the economy, but ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and CNN’s Candy Crowley failed to take advantage of the opportunity to press him on the IRS scandal. NBC’s David Gregory squeezed a question in at the very end of their session, but then didn’t follow up on Lew’s insistence “there’s no evidence of any political involvement.” Gregory: “Mr. Secretary, I’ll leave it there.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
