Re: Washington Post fact check on gun laws and gun violence

Speaking of cherry picking data, the Post article ignores Camden and Newark, both in NJ. NJ has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country and a bleak history of prosecuting otherwise innocent people whose only "crime" is the violation of those gun laws. Granted that in several ...

Re: Is the right to bear arms outdated?

Perhaps I'm wrong but the standoff in CT is one of the indicators that the politicians are not winning this battle. If you believe the stories of 100K+ people in CT with banned firearms who didn't comply and acknowledge that the CT authorities, after much bluster on the part of some police officers ...

Re: The Eagles' call out years ago

For anyone who doesn't recognize it (I didn't and I consider myself to be a big Eagles Fan), it is "King of Hollywood" from their 1979 Album The Long Run

Re: Is the right to bear arms outdated?

Yikes, so far 24% say they literally want the second amendment removed from the constitution. I can understand people wanting to review the restrictions put on it or not put on it, but removing it completely? There are two things America is known for that almost no other country in the world has, t...

Re: DC: Fed Court of Appeals rules public carry of firearms a "core" right

SCOTUS is not getting this one: DC won't take concealed carry fight to Supreme Court Interesting. So they are scared that they would lose, so they just give up on the “good reason” for DC. I wonder if all the other states that have similar restrictions will get challenged now? I do believe that Kom...

Re: NRA Against Bump Fire Stocks?

I think agreeing to regulation of bump fire stocks in exchange for deregulation of suppressors and passage of national reciprocity might not be a bad deal at all. With a caveat that our legislation gets passed and enacted first and foremost, which I fear will not be the case. This is my fear as wel...

Idiot politician.


And, of course, if we ban bump stocks there will never be another mass killing, especially in a place like Oklahoma City. :banghead:

Re: DC: Fed Court of Appeals rules public carry of firearms a "core" right

If we make a giant leap in the future and assume that the Supreme Court has taken the case and ruled 5-4 in a permanent stay of the D.C.ruling, doesn't that put all of the "may issue" State laws in jeopardy? If I understand it correctly, the Maryland approach is the same as the D.C. one.

Re: Straus has a challenger

Phil King is my representative and I don't think he'd be much of an improvement on Straus! That seems to be the general consensus from a lot of Facebook posters across the State, too. We trade one charlatan for another. Exactly! I seem to remember him passing unlicensed carry out of the committee i...
