“With the right to bear arms comes a great responsibility to use caution and common sense on handgun purchases. And it’s just plain common sense that there be a waiting period to allow local law-enforcement officials to conduct background checks on those who wish to purchase handguns.” That’s a quote from former President Ronald Reagan in 1991. In addition to supporting background checks on gun sales, President Reagan championed the original assault weapons ban and urged Congress to pass the Brady Act. As governor of California, he signed the Mulford Act, which prohibited the open carrying of firearms in public.
Bartender Tony Conigliaro's new beverage book is called "The Cocktail Lab," and he's not speaking figuratively.
The state's more than 38,000 medical marijuana users are in no danger of losing their medication, at least not at the ballot box.
“It’s good to know that the Queen of the Tea Party, Michele Bachmann, will soon be getting a government pension at taxpayer expense for all the hard work she’s done. Yeah, right.”
“House Republicans have had their ninth hearing on the supposed cover up of the Benghazi attack which resulted in no new information. The only cover up I can see is the fact that the GOP voted last year to cut U.S. Embassy security funding by $300 million dollars but refuse to take personal responsibility for their actions.”
“Why does it seem you only publish the partisan hateful comments? Are there no sane people out there who just want an honest government that will not lie to them or spy on them and not have to worry about the IRS harassing them just because they want to be left alone to live their lives in peace? Why must everything be about politics?”
Which one would be more hypocritical:
Any chance of cities or counties conducting future gun-buyback programs is about to evaporate.
WASHINGTON -- Sen. Jeff Flake’s vote against expanded background checks on gun sales earlier this month caused his approval ratings to drop, making him one of the “most unpopular” U.S. senators, a new poll says.
It is now being reported the Boston bombing suspect was unnecessarily ‘Mirandized’ in the midst of the FBI interrogations from which the FBI was obtaining important intelligence re present and future terrorist activities. The question now is; did the attorney general’s Boston representative jump the gun by rushing a Federal Magistrate and lawyers to the suspects hospital room to ‘file a criminal complaint’ and ‘Mirandized’? By doing so it placed the suspect into civil proceedings which we find out is not a necessary decision at this time. It has effectively limited further FBI interrogation(s).
It ended soon after it began, this revolution. Not with a bang, or even a whimper. The soldiers, unsure of their cause, simply left the battlefield. As the sun set on the retreating army, the sun also set on the vision of a shining city on a hill, which remains darkened to this day.
Once again it happens with sickening suddenness — a jolting shock that alters and cruelly mocks our assumption of “normalcy.”
“Finally, honesty from the gun control crowd. Their endgame is confiscation of guns which will have to include elimination of the 2nd amendment.”
Once again, an Arizona senator has failed to follow the will of the nation but rather serves his pockets and a lobbying group. THE MAJORITY of Americans want some type of gun control. No one is asking to repeal guns... just control the psychotic individuals that can get a hold of weapons.
Saying that guns are public assets worth money, state senators voted Tuesday to close what they say are the last loopholes in the law allowing cities to destroy weapons that come into their possession.
It is beyond belief that we have a handful of senators that want to filibuster to prevent even a vote on sensible gun control. When 90 percent of America is saying universal background checks are needed now. When over 75 percent of gun owners and NRA members are saying the same thing.
The national dialogue is misleading. To have a “meaningful discussion” we must identify the issue correctly.
Saying it's nobody business, state lawmakers are poised to keep local governments -- and anyone else -- from finding out who owns a gun.
Republicans who control the Arizona Senate pushed through a bill Monday allowing designated teachers, administrators or other employees in rural schools to carry a handgun and allowing retired police officers who work in schools statewide to carry guns.
Now I realize why the Democrats and Hollywood have such a close affiliation: It’s all about portraying their acting skills as demonstrated by Mark Kelly, apparently boo-hooing on Gabby Gifford’s shoulder at a gun control demonstration (last week).
State senators voted Wednesday to allow a teacher, administrator, custodian or even cafeteria worker at rural and some suburban schools to be armed.
The rampage of violence against helpless citizens in Mexico should be a lesson to all in the U.S. who hunger for restricting, then registering, then ultimately collecting our firearms.
The state House voted Thursday to slam the door on gun buyback programs -- even when the owners specifically ask that their weapons be destroyed.
BOSTON — Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has been named this year's recipient of the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage award for her advocacy on reducing gun violence.
FILE - In this Wednesday, March 6, 2013 file photo, former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords smiles as she raises a fist pump to the crowd as she, husband Mark Kelly, and a number of other Tucson mass shooting victims returned to the site of the shooting in Tucson, Ariz., that left her critically wounded to urge key senators to support expanded background checks for gun purchases. Giffords has been named this year's recipient of the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage award. The JFK Library and Museum announced Friday that the Arizona Democrat is being honored for the "political, personal, and physical courage she has demonstrated in her fearless public advocacy for policy reforms aimed at reducing gun violence."
