“I don’t know why any individual should have a right to have a revolver in his house,” Nixon said in a taped conversation with aides. “The kids usually kill themselves with it and so forth.” He asked why “can’t we go after handguns, period?”

ANGER MANAGEMENT COURSE TO BUY AMMO… REALLY!!

A Florida legislator wants anyone trying to buy ammunition to complete an  anger management program first, in what critics say is the latest example of  local lawmakers reaching for constitutionally-dubious solutions to the problem  of gun violence.

The bill filed Saturday by state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, would  require a three-day waiting period for the sale of any firearm and the sale of  ammunition to anyone who has not completed anger management courses. The  proposal would require ammo buyers to take the anger management courses every 10  years.

“This is not about guns,” Gibson said. “This is about ammunition and not only  for the safety of the general community, but also for the safety of law  enforcement.”

Gibson said she’s concerned with citizens stockpiling ammunition, potentially  creating dangerous situations should those individuals ever come in contact with  law enforcement agencies or criminals.

“It’s about getting people to think, really, about how much ammunition they  need,” Gibson said. “It’s a step, I think, in a safer direction. It’s about  getting people to think before they buy.”

Wow…talk about back door maneuvers.
“InterMedia employees believe that Hindery, a Huffington Post blogger who has contributed to numerous Democratic politicians including Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren, is in the process of consolidating all of America’s leading gun-culture media outlets and stripping them down to virtual destruction.”

A bet this is one fantastic Teacher!!

Yet another student has been suspended for having something that represents a  gun, but isn’t actually anything like a real gun.

This time, Daniel McClaine, Jr., a freshman at Poston Butte High School in  Tan Valley, Arizona, made the mistake of setting a picture of a gun as the  desktop background on his school-issued computer.

The picture shows an AK-47 lying on a flag, reports KNXV-TV. The gun isn’t his, McClaine  assured the ABC affiliate in Phoenix. He found it on the Internet and liked it,  partly because he is interested in serving in the military after graduation.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A top Democratic lawmaker tried on Thursday to revive a U.S. assault-weapons ban, riding a wave of support for gun control after the killing of 20 children and six adults at a school in Connecticut last month.

       Senator Dianne Feinstein and several other Democrats said they were introducing a bill to ban semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips. It faces stiff opposition in Congress as well as from the National Rifle Association, the main U.S. lobby for gun manufacturers, and from many Americans.

       “Getting this bill signed into law will be an uphill battle, and I recognize that – but it is a battle worth having,” Feinstein said at a news conference to announce the bill.

Meanwhile:

New polling from Washington Post-ABC News and Pew find that President Obama’s campaign to repress the Second Amendment right “keep and bear arms” is faltering.

On January 22, 2013, Pew released polling results that found the public followed news about Obama’s gun control proposals closely and the reaction is mixed. Only 39 percent think Obama’s proposals are about right, while 31 percent think the proposals go too far. Or, as Politico put it, “39 percent back Obama gun plan.”

The answer is hitting you right in the face, as to what we need to get rid of!

Why is it that none of the disturbed and evil men, who steal guns, then go and kill movie-goers and children in school, has ever been identified as a conservative NRA member?

Ft. Hood~~~ Registered Democrat ~ Muslim

Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals

Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff ~ Registered Democrat

Colorado Theater ~~~ Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal

Connecticut School Shooter- ~~~ Registered Democrat; hated Christians

Common thread – all of these shooters were progressive liberal Democrats.”

INTERESTING?

Hhhmmm… perhaps we should simply ban the Democrats from having guns!!

According to a background briefer provided by the White House, President Barack Obama is asking doctors to help deal with guns. Here’s the relevant passage:

PRESERVE THE RIGHTS OF HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS TO PROTECT THEIR PATIENTS AND COMMUNITIES FROM GUN VIOLENCE: We should never ask doctors and other health care providers to turn a blind eye to the risks posed by guns in the wrong hands.

Clarify that no federal law prevents health care providers from warning law enforcement authorities about threats of violence: Doctors and other mental health professionals play an important role in protecting the safety of their patients and the broader community by reporting direct and credible threats of violence to the authorities. But there is public confusion about whether federal law prohibits such reports about threats of violence. The Department of Health and Human Services is issuing a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits these reports in any way.

Protect the rights of health care providers to talk to their patients about gun safety: Doctors and other health care providers also need to be able to ask about firearms in their patients’ homes and safe storage of those firearms, especially if their patients show signs of certain mental illnesses or if they have a young child or mentally ill family member at home. Some have incorrectly claimed that language in the Affordable Care Act prohibits doctors from asking their patients about guns and gun safety. Medical groups also continue to fight against state laws attempting to ban doctors from asking these questions. The Administration will issue guidance clarifying that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit or otherwise regulate communication between doctors and patients, including about firearms.
