If someone admits to a federal official that he or she has used illegal drugs, that information should be sent to the FBI so that person can be disqualified from purchasing a gun, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said today.

Noting that Jared Lee Loughner, the alleged shooter in the Tucson massacre, had admitted to military recruiters that he had used drugs on several occasions, Schumer, said he was proposing to the Justice Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that the military be required to notify federal officials about such admissions. He said such a process does not require new legislation

      By the time that we emerged from church services on Sunday morning, the media was already painting the Time Square Car Bomb attempt as “home grown”, “Timothy McVeigh-like”, and “right wing lunacy”. Whether it was one of the talking heads, or the likes of the ever-insolent Sen. Charles Schumer, the goal of their voices was to lessen the possibility that the bomb attempt was tied to Islamic radicals, and to create the greater impression that we have more to fear from those “dangerous” individuals, you know, like the Grandma’s in Quincy, Il.

       Using one of President Obama’s overused phrases, “Let me be clear”, the members of law enforcement, at all levels, worked swiftly and cautiously in quickly getting this matter to the arrest(s) that have occurred. The federal agencies have shown that they may have learned a thing or two as a result of the Christmas day bomber fiasco and the manner in which they publicly handled it. I believe that is the primary reason that Attorney General Eric Holder personally made the announcement if the arrest of Faisal Shahzad at 1:30AM today.

      Despite reports that the suspect claims to have worked alone, we have now learned that there have been several arrests in Pakistan this morning, possibly some family members and others.

      So, instead of adopting their stance of political correctness, downplaying the role of Islamic radicals, perhaps our “leaders” should make that a primary focus in our ongoing intelligence situations, and cease painting the Tea Party Grandma’s as violent threats!

     Earlier this week, Rep. Luiz Guittierez (D-Il) publicly stated that he would change from the YES column on ObamaCare to the NO column, becuase the legislation excluded access to healthcare for the millions of illegal immigrants in this country. His flip made it apparent that his allegiance does not lie with his constituency.

     His statement said that he would not vote YES unless the Obama administration made changes to ObamaCare to address his concerns for the illegal immigrants, as well as begin the necessary efforts at massive immigration policy reform, including amnesty.

      Yesterday, Rep. Guittierez announced that he had been “convinced” by the White House that his concerns were being addressed, and he would vote YES.

     Less that 24 hours later, the White House has announced that they are “in full support” of the “bipartisan” immigration reform proposal being prepared by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO- SC). This would include an amnesty provision.

     They say Timing is everything!!
