They are important, right?
A member of the DoJ just testified that our government can't be bothered with prosecuting perjuries on background checks. Out of 70,000 fraudulent cases, 13 were prosecuted to a plea.
What's the point of having laws that we don't enforce, then adding more laws that we won't enforce?
Guns are your pet subject isn't it! Ironic isn't it that the DOJ, probably the biggest gun runner of all time (fast and furious) is tasked with enforcing those laws.
It's the only major attack on Constitutional rights at the moment. Don't get me started on PATRIOT and NDAA
These clowns are testifying before the judiciary committee... saying we need to focus on PREVENTION but they can't be BOTHERED to actually prosecute them.
I think the main reason this administration is pressing gun laws is because after they are shot down they can blame Republicans. Uniformed voters (who are in their back pocket already) will stay on their side or even booster their ranks because "the nasty Republicans and gun lobby want children to be killed." That is the way they will paint it and they always need another issue for the uninformed emotion motivated voters to glum onto.
Well you have to admit if you want to press the issue of gun ownership it is far easier to look the legal gun owner up in the book and go directly to where he lives rather than hunting down the secretive criminal who has no name on file as a gun owner do you. Bureaucracy at its laziest.
No matter what your opinion, you need to see this

The underlying opinion that the second amendment was added was to allow hunters to protect themselves in the wilderness setting and hunt is offset by the militia clause. The founding forefathers had just declared us free from the tyranny of King George III and understood that the ability to defend oneself from ones own government was just as important.Hitler understood this too and we see what happened there.

I think we should. If it's one job that a mandatory background check should be required for, it's that of a public official. Why? Representation of the citizens is a sacred trust and that trust has...

A lot of people are saying that the congressmen (and women?) who voted against background checks are cowards, cowing down to NRA pressure. I don't believe they are cowards. I think you have to have a basic...

Are we growing quiet to what happened 112 days ago? The local media believes we have become lost in the current news. Washington seems to be gearing up for another election cycle and trying to bring into...
