Introduced on the 27th. A start but heavens know when it will become law. Do we have that time? I sure hope so.
I've been known to talk about how the GOP is the party of misery because that is the direct result of the enactment of their policies for the general population and, if you're philosophical, also for its rich patrons.
The point being that the gun law thing is a prime example.
What I'd like for them to do is just pass a law that says that these guns will become banned when the death toll reaches a certain amount. It is obvious that their current stance is that the innocent folks who are called upon to die from these weapons simply don't count meaning right now, in the right-wing's estimation, we can expect anywhere from 50 to as many bodies as there are to be sacrificed for 'law abiding citizens' to have the right to a high-powered semi-automatic rifle with a 30 round magazine or larger.
I think it is a fair question, "How many people need to die so you can have that impractical trucking toy?" Seriously, lets do a ban that says that it won't take effect until "X" number of more people are sacrificed for their right to have and hold an AR in the confines of their little hands.
What is the number, 100 ... waay to low; if that number were selected we might have a ban by July. How about 1,000? That should take a good two years, maybe three if we don't have another Las Vegas.
Are we really going to have to sacrifice 10,000 innocent lives to this Unification Church Alter? (Heck, if we had done that after Columbine, we'd be looking finally at a ban about now ... I would pray.)
If this seems absurd to you on the right, consider that I think that kind of compromise would be a bargain when I consider the lawlessness these weapons give that bunch of rednecks that made up Bundy's army a couple of years ago. That is the reason you guys are so insistent on having them; you want to break the law, steal from the people and get away with it and you're willing to wage a terrorist war threatening mass casualties to get your way.
Not only are you bullies at heart, but you are bullies with military grade weapons. And like Clive bundy, you aren't racist, you just think that the blacks had it better under slavery. And frankly, to keep hold of your mass killing weapons, you'd sacrifice the youth of America.
