1- After a man has served his time in prison, he's served his debt and should be made full with all rights that are due any citizen. (Meaning, prison, probation, etc)
That includes the individual right to keep and bear arms as set forth by the Constitution and the SCOTUS.
2- The laws on the books already, no matter how ridiculous, and no matter how much they fly in the face of the supreme law of the land are more than sufficient.
I'm not FOR any of them, other than perhaps a gunstore owner having the choice of who he sells to, and the right to deny service to whomever he feels
of insufficent capacity to possess a firearm.
3- I think open and concealed carry should be the right of every American citizen, everywhere with the exception of persons in the care of a private/public facility, or
on the property of a private company or citizen that deems it undesirable.
The above post is not subject to penalty under the TOS I declare the Hayden Fox defense. " It is impossible for the staff to know my context therefore I cannot be penalized"
I'm not an expert on this, but from what I am told this law is similar to the NY Safe act, and may be a huge breech of both the fourth amendment and hipaa laws.
Don't quote me on this, but I feel they attempt to skirt those laws to get access to medical records, and even a prescription for anxiety medication could be a reason for them to confiscate your weapons.
I say this because it just happened in my county, and they are now being sued. I think the state police are lying to cover their tracks, if you do some digging there is some very interesting developments on this.
I feel it is an invasion of privacy, and in violation to the fourth amendment. You need just cause to do something like this, and county clerks offices do not have investigative branches, so I think the state police is full of it. In my opinion, the situation that led up to the Colorado movie theatre shooting would be a great example of "probable cause", people had an idea of what he could do, and did almost nothing.
1) Win the next game.
2) See goal #1

Olympic Medal?!? Pfft ...
I'll just take the Cup!!!
And criminals do win. It's so unbelievably easy to get a gun in this country. I wish I could say I'm surprised that people are actually against keeping guns out of the hands of felons and those with dangerous mental illness, but I'm not. We're a country that does absolutely nothing when a bunch of our kids get shot in the face. Nothing. Other than say we should just pray more.
And nobody can agree because one side isn't even willing to discuss it. That's the biggest problem of all. None of this is even open for discussion. The minute the gun lobby hears the word "gun" out of a politician's lips, they're on it like white on rice. This is a perfect example. NO NEW LAW IS BEING MADE, and yet people are all over it. Amazing.
