Many on the left don't want to seek restrictions on video games because they either play them or they don't understand what a powerful factor these games are in such violent episodes as Newtown. If you want to do EVERYTHING one can in legislation to limit these types of incidents, and we're talking about restricting rights...why not also talk about restricting video games?
The Firearms Freedom Act (FFA) is sweeping the Nation
Originally introduced and passed in Montana, the FFA declares that any firearms made and retained in-state are beyond the authority of Congress under its constitutional power to regulate commerce among the states.End Quote
Following initial Montana enactment, clones of the Firearms Freedom Act have subsequently been enacted in Tennessee, Utah, Wyoming and South Dakota, and other clones have been introduced in the legislatures of twenty-some other states.
The FFA is primarily a Tenth Amendment challenge to the powers of Congress under the “commerce clause,” with firearms as the object – it is a state’s rights exercise.
By looking at the map, it will be interesting.
The cars exploding when they're rear-ended gives you away; you're not nearly old enough to be acquainted with the good old days.
Cars were built like tanks then. My mom worked because we were too poor for her not to. And, yes, everybody but us kids did smoke. We didn't because we were afraid to. My buddy's dad caught him smoking and made him eat several cigarettes. He turned this funny shade of green before he chucked his cookies.
Oh, and we didn’t have to worry about being gunned down in school back then. And folks had plenty of guns in them days too. It wasn't the gun ownership that was different; it was the people that were different. So, yes, some things have certainly changed.
I wonder if the NRA will include targets of the President's children in the next version. Wouldn't surprise me if they did, the way they are going after them now.
Were you disappointed when you didn't get any?
Obama making the 'Patriot Act' his own?
Obama's NSA colluding with the banks under the guise of 'security' to gain access to everyone's banking information without the requirement of a warrant?
Government stealing private property under the guise of charging it with a crime?
Perhaps it will bring a failed 'war' on drugs through which government strips away the rights of the citizenry and government Gestapo thugs murder citizens and actual innocents with near impunity?
Oh wait... those things already happen.
Tomorrow will, however, most likely bring yet another assault on individual civil liberties by the raft of fear-addled and emotive pablum driven fascist government first enablers and their fascist leaders and masters in so-called government.
A man who speaks his mind.
"Several weeks ago, I spoke on "Morning Joe" about how the tragedy at Newtown changed everything. On the set that morning and on many occasions since Dec. 14, we have warned that the extreme faction of the NRA will either face political reality or face political disaster."
"As we predicted, his extreme position has now cost NRA leaders political support. A new ABC News/Washington Post shows that for the first time in years, a majority of Americans now support a ban on certain types of assault weapons. An overwhelming majority back universal background checks, a national database to track gun sales, and the banning of high-capacity magazines."
The NRA just went to the bottom of the sepitc tank.
“And the NRA is putting something out?” he continued. “What’s wrong with these people? Putting out apps that 4 year olds can play on the anniversary of the Newtown murders and now putting out an ad talking about the president’s daughters.”
“They are out of step, out of the mainstream, totally out of sync with what’s going on in our society and, quite frankly after seeing that, I think that some of the people who run that thing are sick,” Brzezinski agreed. “I really do. I think they are sick in the head. And I’m serious. I’m embarrassed right now. I’m embarrassed for our country, that we have a section of society, the NRA"
So you don't think the mass shooters had major mental health issues? Just maybe that should be addressed.
1- The US Constitution in its entirety
2- State Sovereignty
3- Individual rights
4-the gold standard
Yep, slowly but surely you mo'fo's will win,
Ain't that peachy.
