"A lot of people don't know that in many locations in the commonwealth, you can take this gun, you can walk in the middle of Main Street loaded and not be in violation of the law," Morrissey said on the floor, according to the Examiner, assuring other lawmakers that the gun was not loaded.
A subcommittee voted Thursday night to kill a bill Morrissey introduced that would have tightened gun controls in the state, The Roanoke Times reported. That bill would have banned the sale of so-called assault rifles and high-capacity magazines.

<quoted text>Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) took awhile to catch on but in the end the organization made a huge impact about how the bulk of the nations citizens view driving while impaired and drinking in general. The group met a lot of resistance but in the end the drinking age was raised, open container laws were given teeth, breath alcohol limits were reduced, judges were put on notice and bars, clubs and restaurants became partners in liability cases and sometimes criminal cases.
Gun control will come on line the same way perhaps the last straw being Newtown or perhaps it will take a couple more slaughters but it's coming.
We know that some gun and pawn shop owners are sleazy unscrupulous sumbitches who will stoop very low for the almighty dollar and we've learned that the gunshow loophole allows for a lot of hanky panky kinda like, "Well, I can't sell you this gun without a BG check, but if you're willing pay a little more my unlicensed friend in the next booth can do the deal for us."
If it's the will of the people so be it. I remember driving around drinking a beer back in the day, nowadays I won't get near the driver's seat if I have had one.

Anyone who says that there is anything unsettled or unknown or unclear about the relation between gun control and gun violence is either lying or ignorant, or both. Many things in our social life are complicated and multivalent; this one is not. Guns do not protect people, or families. Any anecdote that can be mined to claim that they do—and many of those stories evaporate on probing—is overwhelmed hundreds of times over by the number of well-documented accidents, suicides, and domestic disputes turned into murderous occasions produced by the presence of a gun at homes. A gun turns a drunken dispute into a bloody death.[...]

In the end, the President didn’t speak from the bully pulpit. He didn’t even speak from an elevated post. He just spoke from the mind, and from the heart, and he raised spirits still haunted by the image of twenty small, terrified children, heaped up in a pile of death, whose last breaths were spent in a state of terror because a madman got his hands on a military weapon that no one in a free country should ever be allowed to hold. Good and great causes don’t advance without resistance. First the thing is impossible, then improbable, then unsatisfactorily achieved, then quietly improved, until one day it is actual and uncontroversial. So it was with putting military weapons into the hands of openly homosexual soldiers, and so it shall be with taking military weapons out of the hands of crazy people. It starts off impossible and it ends up done. The arc of the universe may be long, but the advance of common sense actually can take place very quickly. And if it bends toward justice, or simple sanity, it is because people bend it. What we are seeing may be the first signs of a nation deciding, at last, to bend back.

'Take Action: Hospital, Hospice Feeling Obamacare Effects

...Just last week, Delaware Hospice laid off 52 employees. Susan Lloyd, the chief executive officer told Delaware Online the cuts were unavoidable.

“We really regret that these actions needed to be taken, and we are so empathetic to the workers,” Lloyd said.“The decision was not made lightly, and it is a direct result of a consequential decline in census and the need to position the organization to meet additional changes and challenges that the hospice industry anticipates with the health care reform...”

COPS ARE BETTER THAN OTHER PEOPLE?

NEW YORK (WABC)-- A troubling oversight has been found within New York State's sweeping new gun laws.

The ban on having high-capacity magazines, as it's written, would also include law enforcement officers.

Magazines with more than seven rounds will be illegal under the new law when that part takes effect in March.

As the statute is currently written, it does not exempt law enforcement officers.

Nearly every law enforcement agency in the state carries hand guns that have a 15 round capacity.

A spokesman for the governor's office called Eyewitness News to say, "We are still working out some details of the law and the exemption will be included, currently no police officer is in violation."

The Patrolman's Benevolent Association President released a statement saying, "The PBA is actively working to enact changes to this law that will provide the appropriate exemptions from the law for active and retired law enforcement officers."

State Senator Eric Adams, a former NYPD Captain, told us he's going to push for an amendment next week to exempt police officers from the high-capacity magazine ban. In his words, "You can't give more ammo to the criminals"

I typed peace moron not piece. Peace be with you, we used to say in the Catholic church back when Homer was growing up, I've since seen the light and want nothing to do with the Catholic church. And no I wasn't molested by by a priest but I was slapped in the face as a 6 year old by a nun, which has been well documented on this thread by me.
