Schumer: U.S. Needs to
‘Ban Assault Weapons’

National Review Online, by Katrina Trinko

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/16/2012 3:39:28 PM

New York Democrat senator Chuck Schumer is hoping there will be a way to establish more national gun-control laws as a result of the Newton shootings. I think we have to do things that protect the second amendment rights of legitimate gun owners, but three things that we should focus on. we don’t know the details yet, so you can’t say any that any of them would have stopped this incident, but you can say they are parts of the pattern,” Schumer said on Face the Nation. “One is to ban assault weapons, to try and reinstate

And just exactly what constitutes an "assault" weapon. Chuck? Or would you rather just get rid of all guns?

i think this is a safe place for me to ask about assault weapons. i am not for gun control. i own a gun - illegally, her in ma. and it´s locked up and will be used only when/if necessary should obama "win" a third term. but, what do typical (not crazy people) do with assault weapons? are there gun clubs where they´re used or what? it seems that they are incredibly dangerous - even used with care…i´m just asking...

"Assault weapon" is a term thrown around by those who have no knowledge of guns.
A 30-06 with a different stock could be classified as an assault weapon. The ".223" they talk about is classified as an assaulk weapon but with a different stock it would not be. It simply does not make sense. One part that does make sense is banning ammo clips holding more than 10 rounds but from what I have read, none of the numerous assaults used large ammo clips.

I´m an NRA Instructor with 23 years of instructing experience and 44 years of shooting experience. Anybody calling for any kind of gun ban on ultra-law-abiding citizens is the enemy.

The left wing ´crats are such knee jerk dopes, and they are proving the point today. Mrs. Lanza bought and used her guns legally and taught the kid to shoot, for crying out loud.

This is a mental health management issue, not a gun issue.

Mom had issues, based on my reading - no visitors to the house, pulling Ryan out of school as a ninth grader (?), She missed all the signals, which is not uncommon.

How could she get Ryan psych treatment when she was a candidate herself.

Only Fox News is treating this issue properly, thank goodness.

Schumer has a NY state permit to carry. I don´t know how he could find 7 non relatives to sign a notarized statement attesting to his good judgment and character, but stranger things have happened.

The real problem with letting hypocrites like Schumer determine what qualifies as an Assault Weapon is the fact that he really means all weapons. Pistol grips, bayonet lugs, etc. mean nothing. That 3 shot duck gun can just as easily be portrayed as a military weapon. A 10/22 semiauto .22 rifle if misused can be deadly. First of all the bullet easily goes a mile and a half, second of all Mafia hit men love the .22 because it is so quiet and fragments.

If your neighbor is the kind of gun owner I meet on a range and he or she has an AK-47 that has been modified to legally be imported, you are in no more danger than the other neighbor who has that duck gun. In fact if you break into one of their houses, choose the AK house. Inside of 75 yards, which is actually pretty far, shotguns are usually more deadly. You either are responsible enough to own guns and baseball bats or you aren´t. Incremental steps to back things down to a muzzle loader are not the solution we need to work on.

As a life member of NRA, I am appalled that anyone would be as vocal as you just were re large quantity ammo clips. You must have some serious issues, I would question your competency as a NRA instructor. NRA needs clear thinking individuals, not whackos.

In Chuck Schumer´s world the holocaust never happened.

Jews were not rounded up, put in railroad box cars and sent to their deaths.

Schumer wants to live in a country where only the government has the guns.

Something to think about before the ´ban large clips´ dance starts. A local talk show host I listen to in my area is also a gun owner. He talked this last week about how it is possible to take 2 or even 3 of these clips and tape them, bottoms together, and have double or triple the firing capacity and not be breaking a law.

Think about that folks. There are ways to get around most every obstacle if one is determined enough.

"Assault Style" is the goofy category in question. An actual assault weapon must have full auto capability or it is just another rifle. Style counts for nothing except to a liberal.

Full auto means the bullets just keep on coming.

Semi auto means one per trigger pull.

IMHO every household should be required to maintain a fully automatic weapon.

These are currently illegal for all but licensed dealers and certified individuals.

The liberals attack now because they are unable to recognize evil. Evil resided in the core of this person and when his difficulties with mental disorders matastisized, evil is what came out. The libs can try to use this incident to disarm the law abiding citizens but it will not stop this kind of evil. Next it will be fertilizer bombs, or fires, or knives, or a multitude of weapons. Remove God and evil takes its place. Every time.

Actually, gun control laws are putting my life in danger at this moment. The 10 day waiting period for a shotgun means that I have no way to protect myself or my home tomorrow. A few days ago, a motorcycle thug (inspired by my landlord) came by and threatened our lives and property if we don´t move by tomorrow. I wanted a shotgun in case he and his thugs broke in, but you have to wait 10 days in California. Besides, I didn´t have the money til Friday to buy anything. So, I have to rely on the Sheriffs to come. Luckily they do hang around the area. But I will still have other things with me because I will not let a thug force me out of my home without a fight. Say a prayer that we don´t get hurt. Thx.

A flood of corruption scandals involving state and local Democratic Party lawmakers is threatening to muddy the party’s image as it enters what was already a tough election cycle. In a week Democrats won’t soon forget, the Democrat-dominated California Senate took the unprecedented step Friday of voting 28-1 to suspend with pay three state senators in their own party accused or convicted of criminal conduct. State Sen. Leland Yee was arrested Wednesday on federal gun trafficking and corruption charges. Sen. Ron Calderon pleaded not guilty Feb. 24 to charges of influence-peddling, and Sen. Roderick Wright was convicted

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans, according to a poll conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The long conflicts, which have required many troops to deploy multiple times and operate under an almost constant threat of attack, have exacted a far more widespread emotional toll than previously recognized by most government studies and independent assessments:

Military officials said they are investigating the conduct of a U.S. Marine who was on assignment for President Obama’s trip to the Netherlands last week, after witnesses said he was talking in detail about his job and passing around his government security badge during a night of drinking at a bar. The Marine, Korey Nathan Pritchett, was first identified by a Dutch newspaper based on witness accounts and smartphone photos taken during the partying, which happened two nights before Obama arrived at The Hague for a nuclear security summit. The Washington Post confirmed and expanded on that reporting through interviews,

TBILISI, Georgia Halfway through an otherwise coherent conversation with a Georgian lawyer here — the topics included judges, the court system, the police — I was startled by a comment he made about his country’s former government, led by then-president Mikheil Saakashvili. “They were LGBT,” he said, conspiratorially. What did that mean, I asked, surprised. Were they for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights? For gay marriage? Were they actually gay? He couldn’t really define it, though the conversation meandered in that direction for a few more minutes, also touching on the subject of the former president’s alleged marital infidelity,

Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi just might be a racist monster who wants to murder live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Why would I say such an outrageous thing? Because Pelosi has accepted an award named for Margaret Sanger. And Margaret Sanger was definitely a racist monster who advocated murdering live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Quote: The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. That’s advocating child murder. It’s not racist, but we’re not done. Sanger considered racial minorities to be “human weeds.” In context,

Barring a miraculous upsurge in President Obama’s dismal 41% approval rating, Hillary Clinton’s run for president in 2016 will be a steep uphill climb. Clinton will need to walk a political tight rope, distancing herself from Obama without coming across as a disloyal member of the president’s political coterie. "Secretary Clinton is distancing herself a bit on foreign policy matters from the administration recently," said John Hudak, a Brookings Institution fellow and expert on presidential campaigns. "This is a pretty standard practice for anyone looking to succeed the sitting president, even within the same party." Nevertheless, Hillary enjoys the fruits

A federal appeals court Thursday handed women in Texas a big win by upholding health and safety regulations that had been challenged by Planned Parenthood. Last year Texas passed a law that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital no more than 30 miles from where the abortion is provided. The appeals court quoted a board-certified Ob/Gyn who explained that requiring admitting and staff privileges “provides a more thorough evaluation mechanism of physician competency” and “acknowledges and enables the importance of continuity of care.” The appeals court explained that the “specter of Dr. Kermit Gosnell” informed the

When Sen.

Mike Lee. So he tapped into his actor’s training and summoned up his best Darth Vader impression. It was the impressionistic coming-out for the Texas Republican, who has since trotted out his versions of Jay Leno, Winston Churchill and fictional swordsman Inigo Montoya from the movie “The Princess Bride.” The impersonations have sparked laughter and applause from audiences and have added another

As lovely as what Obama said five years ago to the United Nations: “No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation.” That’s the kind of sentiment you expect from a Miss America contestant asked to name her fondest wish, not from the leader of the free world explaining his foreign policy.

The Supreme Court searched Tuesday for ways to let women get birth control without the government forcing their employers to cover the cost, as justices tried to balance business owners’ religious rights against allowing religious objections to a broad range of public policy issues. Justices touched on abortion, the limits of federal power and details of birth control, but the case centering on the Hobby Lobby craft store chain likely will come down to whether the court believes for-profit companies and their owners can claim a moral conscience objection to paying for employees’ birth control. The court’s liberal members —

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said
