Lots of hyperveltalation, no facts, except "we all know".
If ignorance is bliss Jacquelyn must be ecstactic!
The President proposes, Congress disposes.
Another totally stupid rant from the imaginary world of Levy.
Where will the $ come from to pay for 10 year tacked on sentences even making the illogical leap that the 10 year additional time would be constitutional?
If Levy thinks this kind of inane foolishness will endear Republicans to minority groups he has his head in, for him, the usual place.
"discriminating against citizens"?
If you "haven't checked immigration law" why don't you do so before ranting in public?
Dusty, logically what would one expect, other than slack jawed hysteria, from people who read the Second Amendment and are incapable of understanding the relationship of the first phrase concerning the necessity of a well regulated militia with the second phrase concerning the right to bear arms, in the context of politics and technology as both existed over 200 years ago when the Second Amendment was drafted and adopted?
Ad to the list of modern "well regulated militia", over and above the military: the FBI, numerous Federal agencies with law enforcement capability plus state, county & police departments.
The concept that a citizen needs a military level firearm on the chance he might be called upon to serve in an ad hoc "army" or militia is obsolete, except in the minds of those who cling to the idea that "the gubberment" is the enemy.
Three round clips/magazines for rifles & shotguns, 6 for handguns is more than sufficient and eminently reasonable.
Since the USA has a "well regulated militia", comprised of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard (under certain circumstances) what possible reason is there for civilians ownership of firearms on par with the military?
No one, despite all the hysteria and hyperventelating, is contemplating "taking away" firearms.
Reasonable firearm regulation, which is certainly contemplated by the Second Amendment as well as the most recent US Supreme Court decisions, makes sense, ie: three round clips/magazines for rifles & shotguns, six for handguns, both more than sufficient for legitimate civilian purposes, and universal background checks.
It's called "schadenfreude": enjoying the discomfort of another.
Watching the GOP these days is the best show in town, a circular firing squad...facing inward.
",,,a decisive war in Indochina, one which could be won quickly, and and aggressive fight against the domestic socialism outlined in Lyndon Johnson's Great Society".
Amazing that Levy can be so consistently wrong, then and now!
The largest act of domestic terrorism may have been done using airliners as weapons but the highjackers didn't have firearms, just boxcutters, because firearms have been banned from commercial flights for years.
The result: increased Federal regulation of carry-on items essentially banning all weapons, TSA to enforce that ban, armored cockpit doors and revised procedures to handle inflight threats.
We the public are somewhat inconvenienced by these steps and there was and is a monitary expense involved.
The benefit: no more airliner hijackings or deaths as a result thereof.
Increased Federal regulation of firearms and broad enforcement of same would have the identical effect on firearm deaths in the long run.
The inconvenience of rifles and shotguns being limited to three round clips/magazines, handguns to six, is insignificant and the cost virtually nil.
Firearms have killed more than died on 9/11 and will continue to do so...the only difference is that 9/11 was all at once, firearm deaths just go on endlessly, a few ever day, year after year.
No, grass and possibly low growing native vegitation.
Which has nothing at all to do with sequestration and/or the obsolete terminal building.
