Agreed Wmarincic, great response by capdisgeo.
Comrade Putnam, Please explain to those reading this where exactly one can legally purchase a firearm without a background check, and how you know so much about circumventing the NICS system. And don't try the gun show myth that the anti freedom apparatchiks have been trying to sell. In order to purchase a firearm at a gun show you most certainly must submit to a background check.
By the way, the NRA is supported by 4.5 million individuals, unlike the anti freedom goon squad which is supported by a handful of elitists and Hollywood phonies, who don't appear in public without their armed guards.

Schdyres,
How about answering a few questions.
The NRA has 4.5 million members. There are about 3 million Muslims in America. How many NRA members have been involved in mass shootings? How many Muslims have been involved in mass shootings?
Where would a member of the LGBT community be safer, a mosque, or an NRA convention?
Why do Cities and states with the most oppressive guns laws have the highest crime rates?
Why did gun crimes drop when Clinton's assault weapons ban expired?
Why do mass shootings happen in gun free zones?
Why are those who preach gun control surrounded by armed guards?

Mr McPherson,
You are comparing apples and oranges. The immigrants you speak of came here legally, worked, assimilated, and became Americans. I'm proud of my immigrant heritage. My grandfather's name is on Ellis Island. When he came here with my mother, he had to have a sponsor, a job, and a clean bill of health. No one was allowed to speak Italian in my grandfather's house, even though he barely understood English.
Those Trump speaks of are not immigrants, they are criminal invaders who have no desire to become Americans.

Weisseguy,
With all due respect, as a parent who had to jump through hoops to keep my kids out of inferior public schools, I've lived it firsthand. Dumping dollars into the black hole of the failed public education syndicate has never, and will never equate to superior education. NY state spends more than any other state on education(more than double in some cases), and has dismal results to show for it, other than a nice Kremlin like building on RT 7.

Sorry Weisseguy
Arizona's graduation rate is about 76% with a per pupil cost of less than $8000.00 per year.
NY's graduation rate is below 75% with a per pupil cost of over $20,000.
While NH does have limited excise taxes, the cost of living in NH is dramatically lower than NY, NJ, CT and all of other regressive states.

The first amendment protects unpopular speech. No speech. or thought, should be suppressed, regardless of how vile or unpopular it might be.
The ACLU angered some of it's most ardent supporters when it defended Nazis right to free speech.
In my opinion, it benefits society to keep speech that might be destructive out in the open, rather than underground where it might fester and grow.

Schumer and Tonko have always been despicable, Gillibrand is a typical slimy politician with no values

Mr Connolly, Your ideas would be a great start, but the sensible fair solution is for government to not be involved in education at all. All schools should be private, for profit, with non union teachers, and if you choose to have 10 kids, then you pay for 10 kids to go to school. If you have no kids, you pay nothing. If this takes place, the Kremlin on Rt 7 can be turned into private productive office space, rather than an instrument of extortion.

Every crime would be solved if citizens were forced to wear electronic monitors, if every citizen had a government monitored camera in their home, and every citizen had a government imposed curfew.
There is a price to pay for living in a free society. I'll take my freedom.
Also, if these government entities have nothing to hide, why is every minute of all video footage not available for live on line viewing?


From: Government needs a plan for cameras
