First, enforce gun laws on books

April 18, 2013

Mingo County, W.Va., Sheriff Eugene Crum might be alive today if an existing federal gun control law had worked as it was supposed to. That revelation came on the very day U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W....

The feel-good do-nothing bill that all of the 'Gang of Eight' said would not have prevented one death at Sandy hook is now dead.

Meanwhile, Sandy Hook is protecting their kids. Every K-12 school in the district now has armed security. Didn't hear that mentioned by Obama while he was using the victims' parents as props.

So, the latest attempt to punish us law-abiding and responsible gun owners for the actions of a couple loonies is over, for now. Just don't cease to be vigilant, as the Left has been trying to disarm the American People for decades.

HEADLINE: Gallup: Only 4% of Americans Think Gun Control is an Important Problem

"(CNSNews****) – Only 4 percent of Americans think guns and gun control are an important problem facing the country, according to Gallup, and far more Americans are concerned about the economy, unemployment and the federal debt.

In its poll from Apr. 4-7"

But wait, Obama and the Left keep saying somewhere over 90%... Hmmmm.

Want to fix background checks to stop adjudicated loonies from getting firearms?

Simple. One page. Add all people that have been adjudicated as mentally ill into the checks.

Unfortunately, the Left's ACLU, an organization formed to destroy the United States using its own Constitution, will cry foul and sue.

"Oh, and here is a picture of Gabby Giffords, who was standing at Obama’s side, before she was saved by the best medical system in the world after being shot by a mentally deranged lunatic. Thanks to her party and Obama, those medical miracles may become a thing of the past."

Say, she looks pretty good with that AR-15!

There was a board vote in Newtown School district (7 schools in all)in approval of resource officers, one armed one unarmed, in Feb. It's now put to the town to see if/how to budget in. It's not "law" yet. Probably will be, but don't construe the particulars.

And as I recall, funding for resource officers, armed or not, WAS included in the proposal put forth by the president. He is leaving that decision to the individual school districts. As he should.

Of the 48,000 felons and fugitives that tried to buy a gun in 2010, and filled out the form, only 44 have been prosecuted by the Obama Justice Dept.

This is one of the major problems.

The government needs to enforce what we have before enacting new laws which all the writers admit would not have saved one child in Sandy Hook.

Why aren't they enforcing these laws. Any guesses, folks?

Notsocialist, Let me get this straight, your side is always claiming that universal backround checks will never work because criminals don't buy guns legally and therefore will not have to submit to them, now your claiming that they do, we'll at least 48,000 of them, in 2010 alone!

My problem was not the background checks because they might stop some people but the whole amendment went beyond that to making lists, etc. That scares me.

If every criminal act required a new federal law to supersede the ones on the books it would only take a few hours until you would have a camera in your home and a response team to deal with you at any given time.

" your side is always claiming that universal backround checks will never work because criminals don't buy guns legally and therefore will not have to submit to them, now your claiming that they do, we'll at least 48,000 of them,"

First of all, my 'side' is that of law and order, and freedom.

Second, do you REALLY think, of a population of 300 million, ONLY 48,000 criminals tried to or successfully purchased guns in 2010?

Third, stupid isn't restricted to law-abiding citizens.

And fourth, your comment is just meant to disparage conservatives, and does not address the problem, which is the government does not punish those that commit these crimes, but wants to punish ALL the responsible, law-abiding citizens just to make themselves feel better, and be able to say they did something.

Just like ObamaCare, they want to do 'something', instead of the RIGHT thing.

NotSocialist, the 48,000 number from 2010 you quoted just shows that criminals will try to buy guns by any means. How many buy guns legally on-line, no backround check required. I'm not suggesting that universal backround check will keep guns out of the hands of every criminal, but even one is better then none. Prayers to the MIT officer and his family.

HEADLINE: 8th grade student suspended, arrested over gun t-shirt

"When 8th grade Jared Marcum got dressed for school on Thursday he says he had no idea that his pro-Second Amendment shirt would initiate what he calls a fight over his First Amendment rights.

"I don't' see how anybody would have an issue with a hunting rifle and NRA put on a t-shirt, especially when policy doesn't forbid it," Lardieri said.

The Logan County School District's dress code policy prohibits clothing that displays profanity, violence, discriminatory messages and more but nowhere in the document does it say anything about gun images.

"He did not violate any school policy," Lardieri reiterates. "He did not become aggressive."

The hysteria continues.

" How many buy guns legally on-line, no backround check required. "

Buying online, the weapon MUST be shipped to a FFL gun shop, who performs the background check before the firearm is released to the buyer.

Have you ever actually checked this out, or just repeating what Obama and Biden keep saying, which is untrue?

Also, the rifles they are calling 'weapons of war' are not. They are not fully automatic machine guns. They are as like 'weapons of war' as an H3 is to a military Hummer.

Unless the online sale is through a licensed dealer, no backround check is required. Ever hear of Armslist, one of the largest online gun dealers? It's a website devoted to the private sale of guns and related gear, it allows private sellers to offer guns for sale to other private sellers, thereby circumventing federal backround checks. It is by far not the only site of its kind on the web, maybe you should try doing some researching of your own.

People have a right to dispose of their private property as they wish.
