That 2.7 seconds is plenty of time for even unarmed people to take down the shooter.
For someone who is armed, it allows him ample time to kill the shooter. About 2 seconds more than one would need to take out a shooter who's focused on changing the magazine.
Besides, Andrew Cuomo already took down your chance to buy large magazines!!

<quoted text> So you know what your forefathers was thinking when they wrote the constitution huh! Albert Einstein: straight atheist, George washington: a known member of freemasons & according to the bible, you can only serve 1 master. Both played major roles in writing the constitution & neither were christian by biblical standards. It's almost blasphemy to even consider the thought. They were all thieves, rapist, & mass murderers. They nearly wiped out an entire population thought disease & murder. They not only slaughtered the indians & enslave the africans, but they turned honest work into business off the backs of others by stealing all of their natural resources. Now, christianity meaning"of Christ or like Christ/Christ like", one would assume that you were inferring that Jesus Christ would've been a raping, slave owning, land stealing, murderer & that country be further from thee truth!
well seeing you know the bible so well how about telling us all just how many times it says how to treat your slaves.. and as far a slavery goes every person that is forced to pay what they have worked for to support anotherthat they have no responsibility for is being used as a slave. Just think were you might be today if our founders hadn't done what they did . Might have been born in africa where fathers are to this day selling their children into slavery.

It's a simple case. The president is the Chief Executive. The limit to the president's authority is the limit of the Executive Branch of government.
The Constitution prohibits the president from issuing edicts to the population.
The only legitimate commands to the population must come in the form of a law enacted in accordance with the Constitution.
According to the Constitution, the executive orders issuing commands to any entity outside the Executive Branch of government isn't worth the paper it's written on.
Should the president use his position to make himself some kind of third world dictator, that constitutes rebellion against the government of the United States.
Anyone who ever read the Constitution knows that, dufus.
Now, what words will Obama repeat...
"... uphold, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution...."
BWAAAAAWWW HAAAAAAAAAWWW HAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWW
It would really help if Obama had ever even read the Constitution at some point in time in his life.
you can make all the noise you want....

White people did not enslave the African. Africans enslaved the African. Eurpoeans were merely the purchasers, and ultimaely the race that ended slavery... among themselves and their civilization. Even today, slavery is still practiced in Africa and the Arab world.
Christ would never assume that any living human was in any way beneath him.
Get an education, dufus.
So I'm the uneducated one yet you dont know this country is this country because your forefathers made carnage of the pre existing indian population & if you did tort research you would know the difference in christianity & the god the freemasons serve. I guess in baby blue eyes it want slavery because they actually paid for human service & enforced it through beatings & killings! Who did they rap? Do I really gotta answer this one man? You claim to be educated, you tell me! The 2nd to last sentence on your post proves my point. In other words, you prooved yourself wrong & to argue in opposition to what I'm saying proves just how ignorant you really are butt queef!

Now, show us in the Constitution where it defines two sets of rights: one for the citizens in the ruling elite; and another set of rights for the second-class citizens not included in the ruling elite.
Got a problem there, don't you, dufus....
Uh-oh, Dweeb the stupid is back.

Early release?? Got a couple of days chopped off your jailtime??

Once again, you fail to understand the heart of the Constitution.

It means whatever the Supreme Court says it means at any given point in history.

That's where you nitwits have a problem.

Obama will likely get two Supreme nominees.

The Second Amendment can be re-examined and redefined as necessary.

Count on it.

Oh yes it is and proven in 1960 and the Conservatives were right not to have nothing to do with it.

You Have NO Right to Social Security

Social Security advocates defend this massive program as an inalienable entitlement. The checks will be in the mail, they say, come Hell or high water.

* In his response to President Bush's 2005 State of the Union address, Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada called Social Security "the guaranteed benefit that Americans have earned."1

* Franklin Delano Roosevelt said Social Security revenues "are collected in the form of taxes... held by the government solely for the benefit of the worker in his old age." Roosevelt added: "We put those payroll contributions there so as to give the contributors a legal, moral and political right to collect their pensions."2

* The government reinforces this belief by calling Social Security taxes "contributions" to FICA, the Federal Insurance Contributions Act.3 Americans actually have no property rights to their Social Security "contributions." Unlike private pension funds, which actually belong to workers, Americans have no legal claim on the money Uncle Sam theoretically salts away for their golden years.

* The U.S. Supreme Court decided this in 1960 in the case of Fleming v. Nestor. Bulgarian immigrant Ephram Nestor was deported in 1956 for being a Communist in the 1930s. After Congress prohibited Social Security benefits for deportees in 1954, Nestor sued. He claimed title to his FICA tax payments between 1936 and 1955, the year he retired. The Supreme Court disagreed: "To engraft upon the Social Security system a concept of 'accrued property rights' would deprive it of the flexibility and boldness in adjustment to ever-changing conditions which it demands."4

* The Court added: "It is apparent that the non-contractual interest of an employee covered by the [Social Security] Act cannot be soundly analogized to that of the holder of an annuity, whose right to benefits is bottomed on his contractual premium payments."5

* This decision reflected the Court's precedent in Helvering v. Davis. In 1937, it ruled: "The proceeds of both the employee and employer [Social Security] taxes are to be paid into the Treasury like any other internal revenue generally, and are not earmarked in any way."6

* Various congresses and presidents have raised Social Security taxes at least 40 times since the program commenced in 1935. Also, the retirement age currently is creeping toward 67. Such steps deprive Americans of their retirement assets. None of this should be surprising. Social Security funds do not belong to individual workers and entrepreneurs. This money is the property of Washington politicians and they may do with it whatever they please.
