Gun control debate: Is an assault
weapons ban out of reach?

Yahoo! News, by Liz Goodwin

Original Article

Posted By:DaddyO, 1/11/2013 8:30:59 AM

Vice President Joe Biden announced Thursday that he will recommend new gun control measures to President Barack Obama, which include more comprehensive background checks on gun buyers and limits on the sizes of ammunition magazines. The proposal could lead to the most significant move on guns in 20 years, but one regulation highly coveted by gun control advocates is notably missing: a ban on assault weapons.

Comments:
Liz agrees that it´s difficult to ban ´assault weapons´ because to define them with cosmetic features like bayonet mounts makes it easy for manufacturers to remove the offending devices. But Liz quickly devolves into her ´all powerful NRA´ mindset, like all brain dead reporters.

Don´t take the bait. Obama wants us to fire first. Obama wants maximum disorder and conflict.

I believe Obama is happy to have high unemployment. He successfully uses it with his ignorant voter base to continue blaming "Republican policies" of the "past decades."

He claims it may take years to "fix this mess." Any time the Republicans are reluctant to follow him at full speed down the road to socialism and tyranny, he accuses them of being up to their old tricks (Constitutional rights, free market, favoring Christianity and American exceptionalism).

Since his supporters want to believe it, his popularity soars.

Being unemployed, they are available for street crime, protests, calls to talk shows, letters to the editor, etc. All of that adds to the polarization of society, the need for Obama´s regime to "rescue" them from the rule of the "greedy, racist, sexist, homophobic" Republicans.

Obama revels in the possibility of a violent response to his strangling, authoritarian assaults on our liberty.

Don´t fire first. (Unless they come to your door to confiscate your anti-tyranny hardware.)

One day a Muslim terrorist is going to use our lax gun laws to perpetrate an outrage somewhere in America. Then we will see draconian anti-gun laws sail through Congress. Those who fail to participate in discussions today are ensuring this outcome.

#3, like on a military base while shouting allahuwa akbar? Something like that? But that would just be "workplace violence," nothing more...

What´s lost is how the NRA supported the previous assault weapons restrictions.

I think they are leaving the assault weapons ban out to use as campaign material leading up to 2014 elections.

LLJ´s prediction: in the next two months we will have another mass shooting with an AR-15 by a single white male who is on some kind of psycho medication.

Want to to guess why I believe this?

There´s no such thing as an assault weapon. There´s machine guns, there are semi-automatic guns and there are single shot guns. That´s it. There aren´t any other kinds.

Guns are simply a proxy to the America haters. The real target is our rights and freedoms which transcend any man made construct. That idea is the their primary enemy.

And then there´s texas. I waited on line to go through a metal detector to enter the building. Meanwhile, other average citizens were going through a short line with no metal detector where they presented their CHL (Concealed Handgun License) and proceeded armed with their weapon. I fully expect them to permit teachers with their CHL to carry in the school if they so desire. It is permitted in one School District already.

Violent crime in the USA is 466 per 100,000 people.
Violent crime in Europe is much higher. The UK is 2051 per 100,000.

Our media idiots will never cover that. You have to go to a British newspaper to discover those facts.

The libs are winning the language war again. They´re not assault weapons, though the left and the msm use the term incessantly. Such language abuse tilts the debate. Oh, and as to the topic: there should be no bans on semi-automatic weapon at all.

This gun control debate is a continued power and control grab by the oligarchy in Washington DC. It is also unconstitutional.

So, if the house of representatives is empowered to legislate(create bills), why don´t they ignore this unconstitutional movement?
Why don´t they put their time and focus on submitting bills to cut federal spending.

This debate is nothing more than the continuing effort to ignore and dismantle our constitution, while spending zero time on dealing with runaway federal spending and regulation.
Our elected representatives should submit bills to cut federal spending and reduce federal regulations and keep these bills coming. But will they?
We the American people keep getting "played" by the power elite in Washington. Must it take an armed rebellion against these elites?

Only time will tell, and we the people will not suffer these communist wanna be types in their non-stop efforts to disarm USa.

STOP allowing them to frame the argument..
AR-15 and all others are guns and rifles, used to hunt, target practice, etc...it is NOT A WEAPON unless it is used as such. So very few are considered assault weapons..the rest are just guns, and the owners have no intention of using them for the purpose of assault.

Today is the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster in England. Ninety-six Liverpool fans died and more than 700 were injured in a human crush in the opening minutes of the 1989 FA Cup Semifinal at Hillsborough stadium in Sheffield. Inadequate turnstiles created a bottleneck and a crush of thousands of fans outside the ground on the Liverpool side. Police opened a gate, allowing the fans to enter. Standing room fans were kept in enclosed pens at some stadiums for security purposes. Police did not close the entrance to the already full central pens. Thousands streamed down the central tunnel,

Broken ATM at South Portland
bank spits out $37,000

A waitress who stopped to deposit her tips in an ATM in South Portland early Thursday morning wound up saving her bank more than $37,000 – minus the $100 she got back as a reward. The woman called police to report a suspicious man at TD Bank’s ATM on Maine Mall Road. What she didn’t know at the time was that the machine had malfunctioned and was spitting out cash as fast as the man could ask for it. Officers arrived around 5:30 a.m. and found him stuffing thousands of dollars from the machine into a plastic shopping bag, said

Cinderella never before received such a gift. Stephen F. Austin, a No. 12 seed and a popular pick to upset No. 5 Virginia Commonwealth, did just that Friday night, 77-75 in overtime. But how the Lumberjacks became the latest underdog to have its NCAA day is miraculous, instant-classic stuff. It didn´t really happen, did it? Except that it did. "Miracles do happen," said Brad Underwood, the first-year coach of Stephen F. Austin, the unheralded mid-major from Nacogdoches, Texas.

Jolly captures District 13
Congressional seat

Republican David Jolly defeated Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby to capture the fiercely contested special election today for the U.S. District 13 Congressional race in Pinellas County. Jolly had 48.5 percent to win the seat and replace his former boss, C.W. Bill Young, who held it for 43 years until his death in October created the need for this special election. Sink, the former state Chief Financial Officer, got 47 percent of the vote, and Overby got 5 percent. A race that normally would play a minor role on the national stage, if any, became a media focal

Piers Morgan’s Revealing Rancor

Sunday’s announcement that Piers Morgan had lost his show at CNN was hardly unexpected. The ratings for the coveted 9 p.m. time slot were abysmal, dropping last week to just 270,000 viewers — about one-eighth of what Fox News’s Megyn Kelly got in the same time slot. Some, such as Variety magazine, have speculated that the low ratings are due to Morgan’s single-minded push for gun control. That might have something to do with it, but much more is going on. In all the thousands of television and radio interviews that I have done over the years, my appearances on Morgan’s

Maria von Trapp, the last of the singing children immortalized in the movie musical "The Sound of Music," died at her Vermont home of natural causes, her half-brother told CNN on Saturday. The native of Austria was 99 and lived in Stowe. She died Tuesday. Maria von Trapp was the third-oldest child of Agathe Whitehead and Capt. Georg von Trapp. The couple had seven children: Rupert, Agathe, Maria, Werner, Hedwig, Johanna and Martina. Georg von Trapp´s second wife, Maria Kutschera von Trapp, wrote a book titled "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers," which sparked two German-made movies and "The Sound

The crew of Gregg Allman biopic “Midnight Rider” was working on train tracks without permission from the railroad in Wayne County, Ga., when a train crashed into the production team, killing one and injuring seven others, an investigator said Friday. The tracks, owned by CSX Railroad, cross private land owned by forest-products company Rayonier, which has a nearby paper mill. Joe Gardner, the lead detective on the case, said the crew had Rayonier’s permission to film on its property next to the train tracks. “CSX has told me they were aware they were out there, but they did not have

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
