That’s what I’m talking about. Remind them of the 10th Amendment the hard way.
And Rep. Carolyn Maloney is still an idiot:
But the debate hinges on Congress. There are now around 50 bills related to gun control pending in the House and Senate.
Among them is legislation offered by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), meant to crack down on gun trafficking. The bill targets “straw buyers,” who purchase firearms with the intent of delivering them to criminal interests. “Getting the guns out of the hands of the wrong people is an important goal,” Maloney said. She said gun control advocates in Congress were merely proposing minimum standards. “States can legislate what they want,” she said, but would ultimately have to follow federal gun laws.
WRONG… we have a constitutional republic with a federal government. Try again.
And of course, Dianne Feinstein never fails to demonstrate her utter ridiculosity:
On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s controversial assault weapons ban, setting the stage for consideration by the full Senate.The California Democrat said the measure would “dry up” the supply of military-style weapons readily available to the public.“These weapons are being used by grievance killers, the mentally unstable and others to kill significant numbers of people in our malls, our theaters, our workplaces and our schools,” Feinstein said.
Are you kidding me? Semi-automatic rifles are used in a SMALL percentage of gun murders! Also, stop using the murders of George Moscone and Harvey Milk as an argument against “assault weapons.” THEY WERE KILLED WITH A .38 REVOLVER! Please, shut up and retire, you old bat.
