Let´s Have a Real Debate on Guns
Weekly Standard, by Editors

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/7/2017 4:50:13 AM

“Over the years,” wrote the editors of the New York Times, “the gun lobby, claiming to defend the convenience of hunters and other gun owners, has so bullied Washington that . . . sensible proposals seem beyond reach. But as gun mayhem continues to mount, the political roadblock looks less and less rational, more and more deadly.” These words appeared in 1993. The fact that they could have appeared in the Times at any time in the last 30 years—indeed they sound a lot like the editorial that ran in the paper in the aftermath of the October 1 Las Vegas massacre—gives

Comments:
If the gun control advocates can explain why gun control hasn´t worked in cities such as St. Louis and Chicago, then they might have a little more credibility.

Why stop at the Second Amendment? What about the First, the Fourth, or any of the others...

Let´s stop the failed "war on drugs" and put a bounty on dealers both legal and illegal.

Then let´s stop the national "dump" of prescription psych drugs that fill the coffers of billion dollar companies that redirect added billions to the coffers of those who "represent US" in DC.

EVERY mass shooter has been found to be loaded to the gills with psych drugs either legally prescribed or illegal.

Where´s the "Praaaaublum" It is ALWAYS instantly directed at an inanimate culprit that ALWAYS has an animate perp at the trigger.

So if we must find an "inanimate" object to blame, let´s find one that comes in tiny packages....., drugs.

PS: Gun control has NOTHING to do with controlling crime. It´s totally a plan to control US, the citizens.

Not one country that has fallen to despotism fell until its citizens were denied the ability to defend themselves from their "leaders." Hundreds of millions of men, women and children have died when gun control became effective in countries such as the Soviet Union, China, Uganda, Cambodia, Turkey, Germany. Everyone and many more had government controlled mass killings of several hundred million of their own people exterminated when guns were taken from their citizens who could no longer defend themselves.

Put the blame where it belongs!

Beware the "National" concealed carry scam.
They promise a permit in 30 minutes then take your 65 bucks (online) and give you a long application form and other paperwork to send to West Virginia to begin a lengthy process you could have done on your own. I fell for the ad right here on Lucianne but I understand that staff has no control over what adds pop up.

An NRA gun safety course in every elementary school would do far more than passing more laws for the law abiding would ever do. Of course, bringing back the pledge of allegiance and morning prayer in school would help also. Liberalism produces wacka-doodle-doos like Las Vegas. Once they get past the concept of right and wrong - anything bad is possible.

The story starts with a fake narrative. The ´´gun lobby´´ isn´t defending anyone´s convenience. It is defending the Constitution. The anti-gun crowd does not respect the Constitution, for more reasons than the Second Amendment.

There can´t be a debate when the basis for it is a fake premise. Besides, what´s to debate? The Second Amendment has been around for a long, long time. If we were not meant to have guns, the issue would have been resolved long before any of us was born!

Let´s have real debates on law enforcement and mental health, and not waste our time discussing the Second Amendment!

Guns don´t kill people, people kill people! People are killed because of lax law enforcement in large cities, like Chicago, Detroit, and Los Angeles, run by Democrats who don´t enforce gun laws!

People are also killed in all cities because there are no national standards for mental health and the treatment of mentally ill patients!

To the Democrats “common sense gun safety” regulation is Democrat political code for banning all semiautomatic firearms. Since just about all personal defense related modern firearms are semi-automatics, such a Democrat gun control scheme would eliminate most modern firearms that law abiding citizens now use for defensive purposes. No doubt criminals and terrorists who do not obey laws would still have whatever class of firearms they wished to use.

There is no "debating" our black and white Constitutional rights!!!!! It is all spelled out there very clearly in the 2nd Amendment!!!

This isn´t something like abortion, that is not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution and is clearly some bizarre interpretation of the Constitution. This is there in black and white.

Now, we can debate why LIE-berals are so gung ho about taking guns away from law abiding citizens. But the right to those guns is not up for debate!!!

Nope, not interested. I like the article, mostly, but not interested in anything that the gun haters have to say.

I have heard it all since I was a teen and wrote my first letter to the editor of the newspaper to tell them how messed up they were.

It has gotten worse since then, they are really crazy.

More Guns = Less Crime; just that simple.

Dems back away from brink on Dreamers
Politico, by Heather Caygle and Elana Schor    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/13/2017 5:15:36     Post Reply
Democratic leaders aren’t going to shut down the government to save Dreamers in December. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi haven’t stopped fighting to deliver something on immigration by the end of the month. But they’ve subtly shifted their rhetoric in recent days and aren’t insisting that deportation relief be paired with a government funding bill this year. Top Democrats’ retreat from demands on a deal before 2018 ensures they won’t get blamed for a possible shutdown and won’t upend Senate talks on a bipartisan deal combining relief for Dreamers with border security. Those negotiations appear

Political elites on both sides of the Atlantic are still frothing over President Donald Trump’s retweeting of three videos recording Muslims acting badly. The videos originated with a reviled British organization, Britain First, deemed a hate group by the British establishment for linking Britain’s high levels of Muslim immigration to incidents of Islamic terrorism. (Snip)The fury that Trump’s tweets have inspired is hard to square with cable news’ predilection for running endless repeats of videos showing police-officer use of force against civilians. If the media ever provided “context” for those videos, it passed by too fast for the eye to

In Texts, F.B.I. Officials in Russia Inquiry
Said Clinton ‘Just Has to Win’
New York Times, by Michael S. Schmidt, Matt Apuzzo*    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/13/2017 4:33:22     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — Senior F.B.I. officials who helped investigate Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign last year wrote in text messages that Hillary Clinton “just has to win” and described a potential Trump victory as “terrifying,” according to texts released Tuesday night. A top counterintelligence agent, Peter Strzok, exchanged the messages with Lisa Page, a senior F.B.I. lawyer. Some messages criticized Mrs. Clinton’s team, the Obama administration, Congress and other Democrats. But the two appeared appalled at some of Mr. Trump’s comments during the campaign and feared that he would politicize the F.B.I. For example, after Mr. Trump made an apparent sexual allusion related

On Tuesday, Democrat Doug Jones pulled off a stunning victory over Republican Roy Moore in Alabama. The race went down to the wire, but the Democrat prevailed. Here are five things to know about why Jones won, why Moore lost, and what it means for the future of the U.S. Senate and both parties. 1. Character matters. According to NBC News exit polls, 49 percent of Alabama voters thought the sexual assault accusations against Roy Moore were "definitely" or "probably" true. Republicans and Democrats split on partisan lines — a whopping 82 percent of Republicans said the allegations were "probably" or "definitely" false,

A former employee of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is calling for an investigation after accusing managers of falsifying documents to impose fines on a payday lender. Cassandra Jackson, a former CFPB examiner in the southeast division, sent a letter last week to Attorney General Jeff Sessions also accusing managers of "widespread racism and gender discrimination." Jackson said her superiors at the CFPB asked her to falsify documents during her investigation into a Texas-based payday lending company, Ace Cash Express. "During the course of this examination, I was asked to change, remove, and otherwise falsify documents connected with this examination," Jackson said. Jackson said

   

 



 
Bannon´s ´kingmaker´ status
tarnished by Moore defeat
Fox News, by Lukas Mikelionis     Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/13/2017 4:17:19     Post Reply
"There´s a special place in hell for Republicans who should know better,” former senior White House adviser Steve Bannon said on the eve of Alabama´s U.S. Senate election, as he went all-in for embattled Republican candidate Roy Moore. The next day, voting results showed Democrat Doug Jones to be the victor in the deep-red state, making him the first non-Republican to win a U.S. Senate seat there in more than two decades -- although Moore has not conceded. If Jones´ victory stands, it would tarnish the supposed “kingmaker” status Bannon enjoyed since Moore triumphed in the Republican primary over an establishment-backed candidate.

"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the NeverTrump conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office. "Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were. "It´s no mystery why Trump doesn´t trust U.S. intelligence agencies," Bloomberg´s Eli Lake wrote last month. "As the old saying goes:

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to

FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers Thursday he could not “lawfully” give them access to a confidential warrant application for permission to surveil members of the Trump campaign, but President Donald Trump could lawfully order him to do just that through his subordinates at the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ). The FBI’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application would reveal whether the bureau relied upon the Steele dossier – unverified opposition research on President Donald Trump financed by the Clinton campaign – to obtain a warrant allowing them to surveil Trump campaign officials.

It’s a wonder that President Trump devotes so much time to discrediting the press, when the press does so much to discredit itself. The media’s errors over the last week haven’t been marginal or coincidental, but involved blockbuster reports on one of the most dominating stories of the last year — Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. And they all slanted one way — namely, toward lurid conclusions about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russians. Every media outlet makes mistakes. It’s easier than ever to run with fragmentary or dubious information in a frenzied news cycle that never stops.

Even as panicked commuters rushed toward them, four officers didn´t hesitate to engage the man accused of detonating an explosive in the New York City subway system this morning, leaping on top of the suspect and removing the device before more damage could be done. The explosion occurred in an underground passageway near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, sending commuters scrambling to evacuate a major transit hub just blocks from Times Square. Despite the rush-hour crowds, only five people suffered minor injuries, officials said. The 27-year-old suspect, Akayed Ullah, is in the hospital, badly injured in the arm and torso from

Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking.

President Donald Trump said Monday a bomb blast in Manhattan highlights the need for an immigration overhaul - as the man arrested was revealed to be part of a large Bangladeshi family sponsored by his aunt or uncle. Trump said that the U.S. ´must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people´ into the country. The Republican president pointed to his controversial travel ban as an example of the kind of policy that needs to be put in place. And he called on Congress to end ´chain migration,´ in which family members are permitted to join relatives
