Please detail the President's alleged lie about background checks.

What is the "penalty" you guys keep imagining?

There are a few things being proposed that would have potentially either prevented or lessened the severity of Sandy Hook, or at least given people more of a chance. There are no guarantees, but we would be idiots to not try to do something. Are you an idiot?

First, limiting each reload to 10 rounds. Some numbskull will say a trained shooter can reload so fast it won't matter. That's nonsense.#1 Most of these mass shooters are not particularly well-trained. They're kids.#2 The guy in Tucson was stopped in that few seconds it takes to reload.#3 Reloading apparently makes a jam more likely (which happened in one of these cases, I don't remember which.)

So if, in Sandy Hook, the guy had to reload 14 times to fire his 150 rounds instead of just a few times, there is *a very good chance* fewer children would have died. Maybe he would have never made it past the first classroom. Maybe the extra few minutes would have given the police a chance to get there and blow his head off. If you don't think those maybe's are worth it, ask the parents of the very last child who got shot if they think it's worth it.

If you are against even trying to address this, you're a gun-obsessed mental case or a rabid anti-Obama lunatic. No sensible person is against background checks. If you're a normal gun owner who had a background check when you bought your gun, then you would want everyone else to have to do the same thing you did - for your own protection!

Limiting ammo and crazy military guns is SMART and does not in any way infringe upon peoples' second amendment rights, which were written out when people had guns that in no way resembled AR-15's.

Get serious, will you?
Whatever

Unreal – One of Bloomberg’s ‘Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ Arrested For Trying to Force Man to Have Sex With Him … at Gunpoint
On April 3, 2013, in Gun Control, by Rusty Weiss

One of the gun-grabbing members of Michael Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, recently found himself trying to lure a man into a sexual encounter through the liberal use of alcohol. When the charm and alcohol didn’t do the trick, James ‘Jay’ Schiliro (R) decided to go a different route – firing a handgun into a wall in an attempt at intimidation.

The mayor who, as the title suggests, is against illegal guns, was forced to hand over his firearm collection, and has been charged with several crimes.

Via the Inquisitr:

A member of the Michael Bloomberg-sponsored gun control organization “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” has been arrested and charged in connection with a handgun incident at his home.

James Schiliro, a.k.a. Jay Schiliro, the mayor of Marcus Hook, a small town in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, faces charges of official oppression, reckless endangerment, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, and furnishing a minor with alcohol. He surrendered to authorities on Thursday morning, and his attorney declared that “we intend to fight these charges.”

Schiliro, 38, allegedly ordered a local police officer to bring a 20-year-old male friend to his home, where the mayor plied him with alcohol, and made sexual advances which the man refused. Schiliro allegedly brandished several handguns and fired one of them into the floor in an apparent attempt to intimidate the young man, who reportedly was in fear of his life.

The mayor was freed on $50,000 bail and told to stay away from the alleged victim and give up his stash of firearms.

The Lessons of Social Conservatism’s Setbacks

With same-sex marriage seemingly unstoppable, it's time to ask where the Christian Right went wrong.

No matter what the Supreme Court decides to do about the Defense of Marriage Act or California’s Proposition 8, it seems a foregone conclusion that gay marriage will one day prevail nationally.

Millions will celebrate—and social conservatives should reflect. For the coming defeat on marriage lays bare the flaws in their political strategies.

First, conservative Christians disregarded Psalms and put their trust in princes. White evangelicals, the largest single bloc of “values voters,” cast one out of every three votes George W. Bush received in 2004.

It wasn’t wrong to get involved in politics and try to reshape the Republican Party per se. But too many of them believed against all available evidence that the nation’s salvation lay in GOP presidents, legislators, and judges. That faith turned out to be misplaced.

Also, gun owners need to be more responsible. The dead mother of the Sandy Hook murderer was probably a lot like the gun wackos on this thread. "Don't restrict my rights" and she got shot to death.

If her son had mental issues, her gun should have been inaccessible by him. It's her fault he was able to get it.

MANTI, Utah — Authorities captured an elusive survivalist on Tuesday who is suspected of burglarizing Utah cabins and leaving some covered with threats and bullet holes – ending a saga that began six years ago and grabbed the attention of police and residents around the state.

Troy James Knapp, 45, dubbed the "Mountain Man" by cabin owners, was taken into custody in the snowy mountains outside of Ferron in central Utah after firing several shots at officers and a helicopter, authorities said.

Knapp was armed with several rifles and one handgun, authorities said, adding that he was wearing camouflage clothes and sporting a red beard with some gray.

After surrendering, Knapp was cooperative and talkative with police, showing them on a map everywhere he has been and telling them he was relieved to be out of the winter elements. He was captured in an area about 180 miles north of the site where detectives believed he was a year ago.

There were no previous violent confrontations with Knapp, but authorities had feared he was a ticking time bomb.

He is suspected of leaving some cabins riddled with bullet holes, defacing religious icons and writing taunting notes.

"Hey Sheriff ... Gonna put you in the ground!" he wrote in one note, according to court records.

I was behind a car with a license plate frame that said "Who is John Galt" yesterday.

Notice John Galt, from Temecula, CA aka Nobama from PA has morfed into nobamaredux back in PA.

Do you think he moved back because the liquor stores are going private?

BTW, he claims to be able to translate Madame Tourrettes jibberish.

"The charging document, filed Thursday, expands on the details of that encounter. According to the affidavit of probable cause for arrest, the young man told authorities that Schiliro wanted to perform oral sex on him, a request Schiliro made 20 or 30 times and "became very distraught after the victim refused" Schiliro's request."

Note the (R) after his name. Note he has a 13 year old daughter.

Note he looks like Rush Limbaugh and would have to hold a gun to anyone to have sex with him.
