Senators offer bill that could block
gun sales to people seen as risks

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Jordain Carney

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/8/2018 2:36:01 PM

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) introduced legislation on Thursday to let a court temporarily block an individual seen as posing a risk to themselves or others from buying or owning a gun. Graham said they are hoping to start a “national conversation” with the bill’s introduction. “Senator Blumenthal and I disagree on many issues regarding the Second Amendment, but we strongly agree restricting access to firearms by those who pose an imminent danger to themselves or others is a The legislation, known as the Federal Extreme Risk Protection Act, comes in wake of the deadly shooting of a high

Comments:
Be very afraid of anything coming from those two vile jerks. It just sends a chill down my spine because we factually know that leftist judges are perfectly capable of behaving badly. Who is to say that someone wouldn´t report a person who is seen as at ´risk´ that was just a vendetta against them. We see false accusations every single day. It´s laughable that Miss Lindsey wants to have a ´national conversation´ about this bill. Those on the left don´t want any conversation or their favorite, dialogue. They only want their way. Period.

Some of these shooters didn´t buy them. They stole them. Is stealing guns covered?

This could easily turn into a soviet gulag type thing - if you are conservative, you can´t get a gun because you are a "threat" (the threat being you might convince a liberal to vote for the other side). I wouldn´t trust such a law if it did not clearly define and lock in the "judge" and the conditions. We actually already have laws that cover such stuff - though they aren´t always enforced (several recent examples of failure to enter info about whacko´s into the FBI database). If we simply enforced existing laws, that would be most of the battle.

New medical diagnosis for the PDR and the Physc´s bible: Patient is "at risk" if patient owns, possesses, wants gun. No need to see patient, just confiscate all guns from all patients.

If a person is a risk to himself or others, but him in a mental hospital.
How many schools have been shot up by a person while they were locked up in a mental hospital?
Dangerous people use many things to hurt others, knives, cars, trucks, bombs, you name it.
Or, just be honest and admit you want the people you don´t like to be disarmed.

A couple of posters above have it correct. Who, exactly, will make the determination the individual is posing a risk to themselves and others? What about due process? What about the ability to face one´s accusers in court? What about the premise of ´innocent until proven guilty?´ This is an insane knee-jerk reaction in a stupid attempt to make these two, (who are a danger to society because of their proposal) look better in this current hysteria. With guns, we are ´citizens´; without them, we are ´subjects´.

Let´s pretend this won´t be used as a weapon against conservatives and that only those with serious mental illnesses would be prevented from purchasing a gun. It still won´t work because schools don´t report troubled students and local police and the FBI ignore tips from the public regarding dangerous individuals.

Who gets to decide that someone is actually risk?

How long is temporary?

And who is going to pay the court costs for gun owners to defend themselves every time one of them is reported by vindictive family member, or anti-gun neighbor?

While I would agree psychopaths should not have guns I see absolutely no way to keep them out of their hands because no one or entity can ever be trusted deciding who keeps and who loses something as important as their 2nd Amendment rights. At least not until you have actually committed a felonious criminal act and in this country you are not a criminal until you have committed a crime.

Good question.
Commie judges, your liberal neighbors, liberals at work, liberals at church, anyone who finds out you own a weapon. Hackers will mine the gun registries, they will publish your name and address and any liberal can then out you as a "gun nut".

A Republican running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Oklahoma said he would "use" his Second Amendment if anyone treated his daughter the way President Trump treats women. Danny Stockstill, a Republican running for the vacant seat in Oklahoma’s 1st Congressional District, admitted that, while he approves of Trump’s job in office, he doesn’t want him to be a role model for his children. “So why are we so afraid to say, ‘There’s no way I want my son to act like [Trump]?´" Stockstill said during a Tuesday night forum, according to the Tulsa World. “If my daughter ever

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R_FL) went on with Lou Dobbs on Wednesday and called out Speaker Paul Ryan for defending the deep state and refusing to defend Republican congressional investigators. Earlier today Paul Ryan defended the Obama FBI for spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. This was unbelievable. "Rep.

The Justice Department signaled Wednesday in a letter to Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will not recuse himself from Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s Russia investigation unless department officials find it necessary. Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote that Rosenstein "would recuse from all or part of any matter if recusal were deemed appropriate by Department officials who are informed about the matter. "Otherwise," Boyd continued, "[Rosenstein] has a responsibility to fulfill his oath to well and faithfully execute the duties of his office." Graham sent a letter to Rosenstein last

The curious case of Imran Awan, which sounds like an international spy thriller, is entering its third act. Awan was a congressional IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., and he was finally fired just after he was arrested trying to fly to Pakistan last summer. Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were charged last summer with bank fraud. They now appear poised to strike a plea deal with the Department of Justice.

The rhetorical attacks on incoming National Security Council Executive Secretary Fred Fleitz (the author’s former colleague) have been shrill and ineffective. Conservatives have rallied to Fleitz’ defense, bolstered in part by Fleitz’s long history of work as a Central Intelligence Agency analyst, State Department official, and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer, along with his solid reputation working on Iran and nonproliferation-related issues. According to Trump administration insiders, the White House blames Obama allies and Iran deal advocates for ginning up the non-controversy, and there’s no indication of a willingness to surrender the scalp of a long-time national security

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former

Does someone from the Trump family, the Trump Cabinet, or even the Trump administration have to be assaulted or worse, killed, before we accept the fact that a growing number from the far-left have put a rhetorical bounty on their heads. If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will. From this cauldron of bubbling and putrid hate filled from the twisted minds of enraged liberal politicians, "journalists," entertainers, and academics, spews forth the dangerously

The cover is captioned, "Welcome to America."

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

However, the company went on to insist that pulling the upcoming Shana Feste-directed Boundaries, or trying to edit Fonda out of the film, would be “unfair” to the those involved. “It is important to note that Mr. Fonda
