    Carolyn McCarthy readies gun control bill

    The blood ain't even dry, yet. Looks like she took Rahm's advice.

    “My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.

    Disgusting. Using this for political gain.

    Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, told CNN that he also plans to take legislative action. He will introduce a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to use language or symbols that could be seen as threatening or violent against a federal official, including a member of Congress.

    So they're not satisfied with violating one amendment to the Constitution, they're looking to violate two! What retards.

    "public safety", is the number excuse to trample on the rights of the people. That's why when a politician says, "this is for the good of the public", I get worried.

    That was Obama's excuse to shutdown drilling and put thousands of people out of work.

    Loughner legally purchased his weapon – a Glock 19 with an extended magazine – from an Arizona store. The same kind of extended magazine was illegal under the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. Read more: Carolyn McCarthy readies gun control bill - Shira Toeplitz - POLITICO.com
    Assault weapons should be illegal on the Federal level. I shouldn't be able to go into a gun shop and buy a machine gun. It's absolutely ridiculous to think that private citizens should be able to possess these kinds of guns. I could go down the street right now and, with a three-day waiting period, walk away with a machine gun. Reeeeeeediculous.

    No more assault weapons. No more right-to-carry. Background checks required. Three references required. No more gun show sales. I'm all for it. The time is now.

    And, by the way, enforce the laws already on the books as to those who own/carry/transport illegal guns of any kind.

    Sadly this is all too predictable. A tragedy happens and the anti-2nd amendment loons and now the anti-1st amendment loons come out of the wood work to try to push for unconstitutional laws. Americans do not suffer from Hoplophobia like the British or the Australians do.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You can't. There, problem solved.

    And, by the way, enforce the laws already on the books as to those who own/carry/transport illegal guns of any kind.

    The laws are enforced. Even at gun shows. When's the last time you tried to buy a gun.

    Just for ****s and giggles, do to any given store that sells guns and try to buy one and see what happens.

    I'll let someone who is more familiar with this explain it to you, but let me just note that the standards you think of when you say "machine gun" or "assault weapon" have nothing to do with how a gun actually works or how dangerous it is.
