Coulter Rips Trump for Signaling
Support for Tougher Background Checks

Original Article

Posted By: DanvilleBill, 8/9/2019 7:41:50 PM

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter mocked President Trump on Friday for signaling support for negotiations in the House and Senate over stricter background checks for gun purchases in the wake of several mass shootings. "QUIZ: Does @realDonaldTrump know less about gun laws or immigration law? WE ALREADY HAVE UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS. Forcing widows to lose money selling her husband's gun to a nephew is not going to stop one gun crime," she tweeted.

Coulter has ahummed herself out of my range of understanding. I think I will just wait and see what Trump does.

Coulter sleeps with guys like the son of the publisher of Penthouse and Bill Maher. She has pretty much jumped the shark with her shrewish tongue and frigid personality. What a vile hag you are becoming Ann. Take your bony knees and jerk them somewhere else.

Well most people would support an effective background check that has a good chance to keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous mentally ill people without infringing upon the rights of law abiding Americans. The problem is how to get there, because now the privacy laws, especially HIPA, preclude even legitimate mental health diagnoses from being included in a law enforcement database that can be checked as part of the firearms purchasers background check. But only about 5% of mentally ill persons are considered to be dangerous. So essentially a mentally ill person, within that 5%, could be diagnosed by a mental health professional as being extremely dangerous to himself or herself and others, but there is no apparent legal method to get it on a data base that law enforcement can check. The result is the dangerous mentally ill person passes the background check and walks away with a firearm. Another factor is that most all of the mentally ill people who have perpetrated recent mass shootings have been considered to be “nut jobs” with guns by friends and relatives, who either just kept their suspicions to themselves, or when they reported their suspicions to the local police resulted in no effective law enforcement response, because in America generally the police will not initiate any prior restraint on an individual until after the suspect has violated some law, maybe resulting in someone being killed. Only then would law enforcement swing into action. Anyway how could law enforcement accurately access if the incoming information is real, or is bogus and designed to take some sort of revenge against a gun owner?

Not to mention such background checks don't keep criminals from getting weapons. Look at the legal decisions in the o0's for why those few criminals who actually filled out a form and were denied can't be prosecuted. Violated their rights, doncha know... So why should the rest of us have to ask the government for permission, eh?

I thought President Trump's most interesting point was about "youthful offender's" records being sealed and not subject to background checks. I suspect a large number of these shooters had violent juvenile records. The most thoughtful comment I have heard from anyone on the subject.

I'm confused by the term universal back ground checks. Aren't background checks everywhere pretty much the same? I know wait times vary from state to state, but I assumed background checks in every state were the same. What additional measures during a background check do they want that's not working now, and what makes them think they will work?

The background checks are essentially the same but with different state and local agencies. The FBI records of course would be from their data base. State police records are checked in the state(s) of residence and I don't know how deeply it goes at the local level. The main trigger to passing the check is the contacted agency having "No Record." This would allow local police and schools to hide a troubled or violent kid's past and he gets a green light. Yes, mental illness is not the person's fault but it should be a dead-bolted door against buying a firearm.

I don't like Ann now or before. However, in this state there is a background check and a 3 day waiting period. How is a background check going to stop those who steal guns or like Sandy Hook, they are already in the home? For starters, we need to repeal Obola's law that schools can't report on kids. In South FL everybody knew Cruz had problems for years. When his mother died, there was nobody to stop him.

I'm wary of the background checks as they are only as good as the collected data. Garbage in; garbage out. If disturbing behavior is kept sealed, if the person has continued to act out, then the person would still be slinking around undetected. We must be vigilant about protecting all our civil liberties, our Bill of Rights.

Well. It's progress. She's stopped talking about the wall. On the plus side, I think that Trump DOES need to hear from us that 'universal background checks (and the resultant gun owner registry)' and 'red flag' laws are a bad idea. Go get 'im, Ann.

The move would be a first step toward a national campaign, though Bloomberg has not made a final decision to run.

The senior ministers of the Israeli government met twice last week to discuss the possibility of open war with Iran. They were mindful of the Iranian plan for a drone attack from Syria in August, aborted at the last minute by an Israeli air strike, as well as Iran’s need to deflect attention from the mass protests against Hezbollah’s rule in Lebanon. The ministers also reviewed the recent attack by Iranian drones and cruise missiles on two Saudi oil installations, reportedly concluding that a similar assault could be mounted against Israel from Iraq.

For all of Trump’s flaws, real or perceived, the one thing that can always be counted on with him is that he’s going to say what he thinks. He’s unfiltered and that can lead to some awkward moments, but also some gratifying moments because he’s willing to say what other Republicans won’t. He’s willing to fight battles the party formerly refused to fight. This propensity has led to plenty of spittle flinging rants about decorum, but the lesson shouldn’t go unlearned by the GOP. One of the reasons voters got so frustrated prior to Trump was the constant fake, high-minded tripe that passed for political speech throughout the Obama years.

Washington has grown accustomed to the unexpected, the unusual and even the bizarre during the presidency of Donald Trump. But is it ready for John Bolton, hero of the “Resistance”? It’s a question increasingly on the minds of lawmakers, U.S. diplomats and possibly Trump himself as the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry forges ahead. A key revelation so far: Bolton, while serving as Trump’s national security adviser, raised alarms about the politically questionable role informal actors were playing in shaping U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine.
