Barack Obama, our next President

Why is that group of democrat wasting their time. No damn way is forcing gun owners to have liability insurance ever going to pass. Why do those democrats not get off their dead asses and tackle more important projects, like fixing the economy which is not growing, repealing nobamakare which is a disaster in the making, come to an agreement on a solution to the millions of illegals in the country?

Tenzing proffered this awhile back, I think it's a great idea. Let the insurance industry control the guns. If Nancy Lanza knew she'd have to insure her weapons, with that kid in the house, her premiums would be through the roof; if she realized that anyone murdered by her guns would cost her entire estate and the insurance companies liability; perhaps 26 people would be alive.

Then get educated before asking for something to be banned. If clips could fire the rounds you wouldn't need the gun, dummy.
Not to mention that the typical .22 caliber lever action rifle holds 15 or so rounds in the magazine.

Abolish the Dept. Of Education and kids will benefit immediately. What a waste of money.
More broadly, eliminate all federal programs that take federal tax dollars and return the money to state and local governments, minus an exorbitant commission for federal overhead.

Let the state and local governments collect those taxes directly, if they so choose.

So why does medical insurance, Medicare, and Obamacare continue to pay for mental health services?
Are you suggesting we shoot all the psychiatrists?
Sounds like Realtime has some real anger here.
Hah, no anger here old pal__simply pointing out that mental health background checks for gun ownership creates far more problems than it could possibly solve not to mention that the cost would be enormous.

On the one hand the right seeks legislation that prohibits physicians from inquiring about weapons in their patient's home and on the other want's to fund doctors for recording lists of their patients who may present a danger to society.

It's hocus-pocus

However, laws like the one recently passed in New York may face problems in the Supreme Court because they so extensively restrict the right to bear arms as to effectively cancel the Second Amendment, by making almost all firearms illegal.
the opinion forwarded by the majority was based on the premise that are there are dangerous and unusual weapons so they could say that handguns are not.

so the twisted logic of the conservatives on the Court, while upsetting precedent, will now come back to bite them in the ass when the first case concerning 'dangerous and unusual' makes it's way to the Court. should be interesting to see them try to backpedal without opening up new cases concerning handguns.

It's an extremely complicated issue. What would you suggest?
The Republicans want to cut medicaid and medicare; but rightwingers like Carol continue to say "Obama must do something about the mentally ill"; ok, what? Lock up everyone who acts a little odd? Who will pay for this wholesale warehousing of people?
We already do this through the criminal justice system; we have more people in prison than any other country.
Psychiatrists prescribe drugs; these drugs often make the person worse; no one knows what to do.
The taxpayers are spending huge sums on programs for the homeless, most of whom are mentally ill.

Drugs are also a factor in obesity.

Gun owners would have to buy liability insurance or they could face a $10,000 fine, under a new plan proposed by a group of House Democrats.
"For too long, gun victims and society at large have borne the brunt of the costs of gun violence," the bill's sponsor, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney, said in a written statement. "My bill would change that by shifting some of that cost back onto those who own the weapons."
Supporters of the idea say most states require car owners to have liability insurance to cover damages their vehicles cause to others, so the same should be mandated for owners of firearms. Opponents argue that it adds an expensive burden for gun owners and infringes on Second Amendment rights.

They can't seem to understand or accept that with rights come responsibilities...talk about the "takers." To fully utilize the right to freedom of speech, one must assume the responsibility for speaking truthfully, understandably, and comprehensively. The right to vote should be enhanced by undertaking the efforts necessary to learn what is being voted upon and the beliefs of the candidates running. Automobiles, pit bulls, guns, children should all come with the burden of responsibility, imho.

George Zimmerman was pill freak dependent on a variety mood drugs just to get through his day. He had a conceal carry permit and supposedly carried wherever he went except his workplace.

What is the purpose of background checks for weapons purchases, if not to eliminate the most dangerous potential buyers?

That would include convicted felons and those with mental illness.

There are records to identify the felons, but not the mentally ill.

Then why have background checks at all?

As to doctors questions, no legislation is required. Simply refuse to answer questions about weapons possession, as well as questions about alcohol consumption.

Didn't the enemy take the war to Pakistan - like in Iraq?

Our only mission was to take down Saddam. Until the enemy decided the war was in Iraq.
