• HR 5102 & S 2905

    From Thumper@VERT/THEWASTE to All on Fri Jun 1 07:39:39 2018
    Countless anti-gun bills have been introduced in Congress, and a couple are capable of stripping away our rights on a large scale.

    First, HR 5103 would tax firearms by 20% and ammunition by 50%. These outrageous rates would prevent poverty-stricken individuals from exercising their Second Amendment rights altogether.

    Second, S 2095 by Dianne Feinstein would ban most semi-automatic rifles
    because of their appearances. ARs, AKs, and many other firearms would become things of the past.

    I remember seeing a skit on one of the late night talk shows or something. They were out on the streets with various weapons and asked people what they thought were "bad" firearms. If the person said they were into firearms or
    had a license, etc., the host asked them to walk on by because this 'survey' was not for them.
    They showed things like the AK47 (wooden stock) and a few others (which may
    or may not have been full-auro). Each person picked the "black" styled
    firearm because they looked mean. TV/Movies have given a bad rep to firearms
    of course, as well as the local news getting the information wrong during the "mass shootings".
    I remember the host pointing to some of the firearms the general public
    chose "bad" and would have them banned, and those of us watching were like, what? That is a toy compared to any of the full-auto ones they said were ok. From that day, I joke around (not really because I WOULD own one) about
    getting a pretty purple digital or blue digital firearm just so it didn't
    look "mean" to others :)

    We still get into the debate over what "AR" actually means and the general public is told one thing while all of us know the truth.

    They did have a ban years ago, I made sure my purchase was done prior to and
    I was active military so I would argue that I need it to protect the country (and defend the Constitution again foreign and domestic) :)

    Most hate the current president, and are trying to do everything they can to take over the next election.

    The ban was by specific models, if I recall? That makes it hard when you can get a Chinese copy of a Czech copy of an AK-47.

    Foreigner here, so feel free to disregard my opinion as the product of European media brainwashing.

    I am sure Trump has a meaningful group of supporters, but I am not sure he won because he is popular. He won because a lot of people wanted to create a backslash against the left and its identitary politics.

    I mean, cancel culture is getting very bad. I can absolutely believe that somebody would vote for Trump becaise SJWs hate him and for no other reason.

    Errr. It's the same Poll that said Hillory Clinton was favored to win the last election. Right now only the Democrats are being polled. A lot of Americans feel Trump is doing a great job. Let's see what happens in 2020 shall we? No point in debating it now. I'm sick of all the left winged rhetoric.

    "Most" didn't even vote for him. And even the most conservative polls don't have him winning a second term.


    He's incapable of telling the truth. He lies about stupid little things that are easily debunked on a daily basis. He's outright admitted to committing treason by asking a foreign government for help "investigating" a political opponent. His acting cheif of staff also admitted he did it, and the transcripts of him doing it were released by The President himself.

    He's abandoned our allies in Syria, and allowed dozens of ISIS terrorists to escape captivity. Both Republicans and Democrats agree that this was a monumentally stupid thing to do, and in today's political climate it's almost impossible to get both parties to agree on anything.

    I honestly wanted him to succeed, I didn't want to see our country become the laughingstock of the world, but here we are.

    Whataboutism. Bill lied about geting his dick sucked and the house voted to impeach him for it. Trump has made over 13,000 false or misleading claims since he took office.

    You can't deny it, so you try to justify it by saying other politicians lie. Here's the thing, Trump ran on not being a politician, so which is it?

    Oh, don't forget there is never anything free, someone has to pay for in in some way or another.

    Yes, we know. The candidates on stage know, and they've put forth plans on how to pay for things that other civilized countries provide their citizens. There was a billionare on stage at the debate, and he wholeheartedly agreed with Warren's "Tax the rich" plan. He agreed with her that billionares shouldn't actually be a thing.

    It's just a tactic being used by the Democrats to pursuade people not to vote for Trump in the next election. The party does not have a candidate they believe can clearly beat Trump on merit alone. The Democrats are despersate and will resort to anything to defeat Trump in 2020.

    that, my friend, is not an impeachable offense so nice try. There were a
    itany
    of charges brought against him and yes, Clinton was a habitual liar but hey
    he probably was your guy.

    You can't deny it, so you try to justify it by saying other politicians lie. Here's the thing, Trump ran on not being a politician, so which is it?

    so what exactly did he lie about? Oh yeah, I'm sure you'll say 13,000 times but are they all lies and misstatements or are the majority of them just not fitting the native of the alphabet media?

    How can you honestly support someone who will flat out lie about the stupidest things? About things that don't matter? Fuck, man. Support

    Again , I question all this as fact and not just hyperbole to discredit a POTUS that the media and the Democrats , of course, are trying their best to destroy.

    another GOP candidate, I'm fine with that, Trump is just a horrible
    human being.

    He wasn't my first choice and he is bombastic to a huge degree but what he
    is is a man constantly under attack for both his job and it's personal with
    far too many in the left. His nature is not to stand and let people unduly attack him and his family and I can understand that.

    You should maybe get a copy of that transcript and educate yourself dude.

    If you actually read the whole report and not the synopsis put out by his detractors you might think otherwise. Either that or your opinion was formed before you read it and only looked for your confirmation. :)

    World. Turkey just walked all over Mr. "Art of the Deal". Trump is considered weak, ineffectual, and a baffoon by every other world
    leader. I bet even Boris Johnson thinks Trump is an idiot.

    Of course they do, the leaders of socialist leaning countries are indeed amazed and disheartened by his unwilling attitude to bow down to their way
    of thinking. Not at all surprising however, weak and ineffectual... hardly
    I don't belive China is in that category. Frankly I think Boris Johnson is missing a few brain cells himself but that's just me. :)

    Ah the old class envy strikes again. Ok, so you don't think there should be any billionaires as well I'm guessing from your post. If everyone had the same amount of income, asserts and whatever... just who would invest in new and expanding
    business that hire people and pay taxes to fund the government? The poor don't hire people to build things and that's an economic fact. Sorry, instead of vilifying that group , maybe we should all aspire to becoming independently wealthy
    ourselves. Oh, and the road to success is never working for someone else.. it's

    taking the risk with your money and time, working not 8 hours a day for a wage but
    working 12 hours a day and more to grow your business, hoping it succeeds and then
    if it does pouring nearly all that back into it for years before finally achieving
    that said independence. It's a long hard road with no guarantee of success.

    I've always been very anti-impeachment. It's not because I think Trump doesn't deserve it, he's demonstrated time and time again he doesn't have the country's best interests at heart. I've been anti-impeachment because Trump is a bumbling idiot who can't walk and chew gum at the same time. He hasn't demonstrated a single iota of political acumen, and just can't get anything done because he can't keep his stories straight. Someone will ask him about a thing, he'll spout off an opinion on it, then, after the more insidious actors around him drop their opinions in his ears, he'll change his tune and parrot what they say. He's a puppet president, but he's too ADD to keep on any one task for too long to do any real meaningful damage.

    Were he to be impeached, and if the Senate removed him from office, It's quite possible Mike Pence would become president. Now there's a guy who's actually competent, and has the ability to do real, horrifyng harm to this country in a way that Trump never could.

    Springsteen said he doesn't think Trump knows what it means to be an

    The problem with impeachment is that it's going to become the new normal. Elect a democrat? The republicans will be screaming "IMPEACH" within the

    Same here. Some of that comes from the quality of the field of
    candidates being presented by the other side... And some of it
    comes from the fact that things are actually going pretty well on
    the economic front. Especially when you factor in the petty
    whining about things that don't really matter, and the media bias
    which looks to pick apart everything he does.

    And I wouldn't expect him to have any political acumen, since
    he had never worked in politics before. Though, sometimes that's
    the kind of candidate we might want.

    Well it clearly was what "we" wanted in 2016. Next year should be very.... interesting.

    I have a feeling Trump is going to get re-elected.. Just a
    feeling I have.

    Same here. Some of that comes from the quality of the field of candidates being presented by the other side... And some of it
    comes from the fact that things are actually going pretty well on
    the economic front. Especially when you factor in the petty
    whining about things that don't really matter, and the media bias
    which looks to pick apart everything he does.

    Second the notion. I've already said if Gabbard, Yang or, Bernie don't end up winning the primary and we get another corporatist democrat in the elections, odds are my vote is going to Trump. Gabbard is my main pick, but it's clear
    the DNC is pulling what they did back in 2016 and taking the clearly popular choice out back and proceeding to shoehorn a candidate that only appeals to
    the extremists, like Kamala or Warren. Looking at both of them let alone hearing their platforms just unsettles me - My kingdom for a democrat that
    knew the solution to gun violence wasn't with gun control but with actual research into WHY they happen. I mean, we know gang violence's MO, but what about these mass shooters?

    Something I notice all the candidates and most politicians do is step softly around the subject of urban violence. On a fourth of July weekend more
    people die in Chicago than all the mass shootings combined. It doesn't fit the mainstream narratives of hate filled paranoid fanatics and domestic terrorists, and it seems like a taboo to talk about people of certain races
    or nationalities without automatically being declared a rascist.

    That's a big problem with the DNC - they tiptoe around things to not be 'racist', 'sexist', or 'transphobic/homophobic'. I'm probably one of the
    people they hate the most, being a bisexual transgender woman who believes
    that my right to defend myself with a firearm should never be infringed, and that a 1911 is more effective at putting whatever ill-mannered person who
    wants me dead, be they some religous zealot or just a dimestore crook - in
    the ground than calling a cop with a 3-5 minute response time where i'll inevitably be shot, stabbed or kidnapped by the time they're on scene.

    It's not so much we have paranoid fanatics (though they are fanatics to an extent) and domestic terrorists in this country, as it is extremists and
    people who are clearly mentally unwell (The former are a very vocal minority
    in some areas, to the chagrin of anyone with a functioning cranium). Mental health if anything is something that is overlooked in these incidents, and
    like what happened in Christchurch, there's often political components to
    those mental issues, in what drive them to the breaking point.

    I don't claim to be the prime of mental health (As I've got Aspergers, ADHD, Anxiety issues and Gender Dysphoria), but I at least try my damndest to get a grip on myself and keep myself from doing overly rash things.

    Another problem, as you mentioned, was with inner city crime. There's a multitude of factors regarding why it's so prevalent in some cities. You
    could point out high school dropout rates among different races and try to
    curb them through initiatives, you could point out drug use and try to take
    the switzerland approach and try to locally legalize soft drugs like pot, and provide government-funded aid for those addicted to drugs like heroin or
    meth. One of the big ones, and I know from experience as my sister had spent time in Jail for drug offenses - is that many people who get arrested for
    drugs aren't even hardened criminals, and once they're in the system they're fucked for quite a while, if not the rest of their lives. You could pin part
    of the gun crime problem on that - on how your regular joe or jane gets put
    in the slammer and has no choice but to turn to crime when they can't find employment due to a criminal record, and on top of that, they return to drugs and eventually overdose because they're not provided the tools to
    rehabilitate themselves. In Kentucky, we have such a system like that, but it still requires you to be in jail for a set period. You could pin gun crime on
    a multitude of other factors as well, such as cultural divides and socio-economic issues, such as gentrification of certain neighborhoods
    causing cultural clashes as citizens are forced to move to more impoverished neighborhoods as a result thereby, among other socio-economic problems.

    I'm no analyst, but the gun crime problem is clearly being tackled
    incorrectly by the DNC. Probably because they have an ulterior motive to it - given how hard left it's become in recent years, I wouldn't be surprised if they're trying to take away firearms for the sake of trying to eventually install a more restrictive nanny state like what we're seeing in the UK.

    whats funny is the DNC is going to be over by me and the city governments are preparing for human trafficking/prostitution and drugs to ramp up like they do when they go to other areas.

    when the republicans visit, they just hit the strip clubs.

    I don't think it's as much an ulterior motive as much as it is they believe they can solve societal issues that are in some cases as old as the history
    of man bu legislating against tools instead of violent behavior. The history of karate and related martial arts comes from a time when knives and swords were banned from private ownership, and we know that turned out. Even now
    some forms of karate that are not competition oriented are forbidden because they are intended to make sure your opponent does not get back up.

    You've got a good point, but with how I've seen the DNC act in recent years makes me beg to differ that they have our nation's best interests in mind,
    and that's not just limited to gun ownership.

    Putting it that way, I have to agree. I think our founding fathers did a
    good job asking themselves what could go wrong, and factored in the ambition o f politicians. Our rights exist as roadblocks to prevent control over the populace to be disguised as creating progress.

    our founding fathers were genius. the problem is slowly, politicians found out how to ignore the constitution and work around it.

    First step is going to be the universal background check. I can imagine
    the fed would want information to build a registration database rather than just checking a citizen's criminal status. I'm also betting they'll be watching how many purchases you make.
