Note the registering, fingerprinting, and photographing of gun owners of grandfathered existing ´banned´ guns. Join the NRA today!

So, they are in the process of removing our healthcare, taking a ton of money in taxes and now threatening to remove our guns. And the voters of the USA STILL don´t get it?

Hopefully,....here´s an easy one Mr. Speaker. May I respectfully suggest you not only decline the Madam Senator´s submission. But instead offer to not only not ban any gun models, but would also like to offer a law that recognizes any and all local gun restrictions as unconstitutional and hence invalid. And further that all low income people that can not afford a gun will be given one along with proper training. And that lastly concealed carry will become the law of the land. That is a start of a bargaining position. Even though you can´t bargain inalienable rights. Respectfully, if the Liberals want to ban guns, have them start the process to repeal the 2nd amendment.

This might not pass in its present form, but Republicans might negotiate it down to banning only 60 and two military characteristics. Boehner couldn´t even repeal a light bulb ban, so I don´t trust him on this either.

This brainless twit needs to be committed for an indefinite period to ascertain her mental stability. She is clearly incapable of continuing her job as Senator. OR, she could be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail. She is an anti-American communist as far as I can tell.

I don´t expect ivory tower DC types to grasp this concept but banning a specific product simply means it will reappear in modified, legal form soon thereafter. The factory and raw materials are still there. Changing a group or a barrel shroud is a simple matter.

Quit saying that this will NEVER happen.

The only thing stopping it today is a one vote majority in the Supreme Court (and after the nØbamacare fiasco, I don´t have that much confidence that that is set in stone at this point).

But let NØbama flip one conservative justice and the Constitution is dead. Then nothing the lie-berals have had wet dreams bout for years will be out of the question.

Best hope no one holding a swing vote on this has a skeleton in their closet.


Remind your representatives about your states´ 10 th ammendment. If they didn´t reaffirm when Obama got elected, now might be a good time! I especially liked the one telling Obama by name to cease and desist. Think it was Washington State or Wyoming.

Other states should follow their lead. Let the blue states have their gun free zones and the rest should go all Kennesaw Ga. on them and require every citizen that is legally able to own a gun. Then, compare crime statistics.

I know, I can wish.

Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment

Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
• Background check of owner and any transferee;
• Type and serial number of the firearm;
• Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
• Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
• Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

sounds like compliance would make subsequent confiscation mighty easy. See Doug Hagmann´s interview...

Excellent question #16. I´d also like to know how many shares her, her staff, and friends of friends have on (and type-long or short) in the firearm manufacturers, and when they were put on. Seeing the recent poll and lack of support for a hand-gun ban. I´d hate to think the Senator was just posturing and then profiting from this tragedy. But, the dog´s not barking so it might be best to check. Hate to consider it, but the temptations are great and I´m sure the Senator and her staff have nothing to hide regarding trading on inside information...so better safe than sorry.

If the Democrats monkey around with this overreaching proposal for very long without deepsixing it, a lot of them are not going to get re-elected in the coming off year elections. They know that as you can already see that the specific Democrats who will be pushing this were just re-elected in November or will not be running again for four years. It will be the same thing that happened to the Democrats the last time they pushed gun control, they will loose big.

First lady Michelle Obama unveiled a proposed new nutrition label Thursday, claiming the labels would make it easier for families to tell whether food is healthy. Because math is hard, or something. If your “nanny-state” radar is going off, it should. The new label really doesn’t appear to be much different from the old one. The “servings per container” font is larger and bolder, the “calories” section is much larger and bolder and the “percent daily value” column was moved to the left side (have to spend that tax money on something). The first lady said the serving size for many foods would be

The White House on Thursday said that President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, discussed immigration reform during their recent meeting but declined to say if the leaders had made any progress on long-delayed legislation. “I can certainly confirm that immigration was one of the topics they discussed,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney. Obama and Boehner met in the Oval Office on Tuesday for an hourlong meeting. Carney, though, refused to characterize the tone of their discussion on immigration, saying only that “there is broad agreement that this is an issue that needs to be addressed.” “We´ve seen that in

The phenomenon of global warming has been used to explain many things, but now Mother Jones is quoting a study saying it might cause more rapes of women. Matthew Ranson, an economist, avers that there is a historical connection between warmer temperatures and increased crime. He said, "Looking at the past, we see a strong relationship between temperature and crime. We think that is likely to continue in the future." Ranson utilized the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s projections of the effects of global warming in the U.S. to estimate that between 2010 and 2099, warmer temperatures will "cause" an

Representative Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) are asking President Obama to designate $10 million for "gun violence research." According to The Queens Gazette, Maloney "joined with gun violence victims, advocates, and union leaders" to request the money on February 22. She said, "Gun violence costs our country an estimated $174 billion every year," adding that "the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a research plan in place. Now they need the funding to move forward." Maloney also joined Markey in sending a more formal request letter to President Obama. On February 4 Breitbart News reported that gun control proponents

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio took off the gloves in his battle with education reformers, rescinding an agreement for the city to share space with several public charter schools. The move undercuts educators, parents and some 700 students at four schools, including Harlem Success 4, one of the public charter school movement’s top success stories, and two set to open in the fall. While agreements at those schools were rescinded, expansion of a fourth school was also blocked. The schools were to operate rent-free in city-owned facilities under deals backed by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an ardent supporter of

A federal judge in Kentucky took a final step Thursday forcing the state to begin recognizing same-sex marriages performed outside the state. U.S. District Judge John Heyburn was following through on his ruling earlier this month that found a portion of the state´s constitution, which bans the recognition of gay marriage, violates the U.S. Constitution. On Thursday, the judge wrote the amendment was unlawful and "void and unenforceable." The order came shortly after the Kentucky attorney general requested the ruling be delayed for 90 days to give defendants time to appeal and the state time to determine the best way to implement the

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds.

Prominent members of the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, also sided with the bill’s opponents, who argued that the measure would have allowed people

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

PHOENIX -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed Wednesday a controversial bill that would have allowed businesses to deny services to gays and others based on religious beliefs.

The Arizona Chamber of Commerce said Monday the bill could hurt tourism, make it hard to recruit new businesses and open the door to lawsuits against businesses.

The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First they told
