(John Paul Stevens) Rarely in my lifetime have I seen the type of civic engagement schoolchildren and their supporters demonstrated in Washington and other major cities throughout the country this past Saturday. These demonstrations demand our respect. They reveal the broad public support for legislation to minimize the risk of mass killings of schoolchildren and others in our society.
That support is a clear sign to lawmakers to enact legislation prohibiting civilian ownership of semiautomatic weapons, increasing the minimum age to buy a gun from 18 to 21 years old, and establishing more comprehensive background checks on all purchasers of firearms. But the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform. They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.
(Sam Rolley) The government’s top watchdog revealed in a new report that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) essentially maintained a database of law-abiding gun owners by ignoring its own policies.
According to Government Accountability Office (GAO) auditors, ATF failed to remove the names of gun purchasers from its Multiple Sales (MS) database and another system called Access 2000 which allowed it to stockpile information on lawful gun owners by scouring the records of out of business federal firearms license holders.
Rayn: Yes! 🙂 Personally, I say “ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ” to each and every delusional “anti-gun” boot-licker out there!
Here’s a good joke: Ever ask a Statheist how they plan to disarm the world? Wait for it… Wait for it… GUNS!!! LOL!!!
Have a critical thought, already, cult material! Your self-deception has distorted your perception! You may choose to drop to your knees before the false deity of Government all you like, but please don’t delude yourselves with lofty ideas about being “progressive,” or even more ridiculous… “peaceful.” To discerning hearts and minds, your faith-based religion is just as dangerous and deadly as any other!
