The death of a bill dealing with sexual predators who target kids has become a rallying cry for Republicans, who say their legislation would do more to make Colorado safe than gun bills passed by the Democrat-controlled legislature.
But Republicans aren't getting any getting support from Dave Kopel of the Independence Institute, an expert on Second Amendment issues who has studied prison sentences. He's critical of both the gun bills and the Republican measure known as "Jessica's Law."
"I don't think either of those are constructive steps toward public safety," he said.
And in a rare moment of unity, the Colorado District Attorneys' Council, Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Colorado Office of the Public Defender all agree Jessica's Law isn't necessary.
.....Laurie Rose Kepros, the director of Sexual Offense Defense for the public defenders office, said Colorado's complicated and nuanced sentencing laws "already go beyond what Jessica's Law mandates."
"Jessica's Law is a 25-year sentence, and we have life sentences for all of the crimes covered under the bill," she said.

Some "...constructive steps toward public safety...":

1) Mandatory, and immediate, physical castration of convicted rapists. No prison time necessary.

2) Mandatory, and immediate, hand-removal from thieves, both white- and blue-collar. Again, no prison time.

3) A 'no-tolerance' policy for those who disagree with the current regime. Summary execution of the 'uncooperative' will take care of most infringement.

Sounds like fun, eh?

Hint: There is NO SUCH THING as 'Public Safety'. No law ever prevented any crime...the law merely provides a definition, and a punishment for crimes. Safety is relative. I prefer freedom.

you know i did.
I watched Feinstein's so-called 'smack-down', with an eye toward the actual answer to the Jr. Senator's question. She eventually agreed that, no, she would not consider abridging the Peoples' rights to free speech, or freedom from illegal search and seizure, in the same way she is rabid to limit which firearms we are 'allowed' to own.

Her bill is bullshit, and will not pass in the Senate. I doubt they even let it come to a vote, as it was a bunch of Dem posturing.

Here's the deal: infringement on the Peoples' right to bear arms is a no-no. The Constitution is VERY clear on this.

Dianne Feinstein vs Ted Cruz: MSNBC Basically Has An Aneurysm:

"Anyone notice how Cruz asks a legitimate question about the interpretation of the Constitution and all Dianne Feinstein responds with is her history in government office?
I like to call that a non-answer.

After the Cruz/Feinstein interaction, watch MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell go straight-up senile on us as she holds a copy of the Constitution up for us … as if that is going to make us believe her any more".

Diane Feinstein sounded like a child.
Cruz brilliantly baited her with skillful condescending words like "Senior" ... Old Bag!
While Cruz remained calm and strategic, Feinstein loses her cool.
And is reduced to a babbling fool.
The exact reaction Cruz was angling for.
Liberals are SO predictable that they are now beyond Easy but have become Instant! Just add Water!!! LOL !

One doesn't not need a penis to commit rape nor hands to steal.

Laws deter the lawful minded, I agree that they have no meaning to the criminal. Same with the death penalty.
Laws allow for the removal of the criminal and prevention of further crimes.

and who interprets the Constitution? not you.

Justice Scalia:

Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited. From Blackstone through the 19th-century cases, commentators and courts routinely explained that the right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.
