Want to propose some legislation restricting anyone’s right to bear arms?  That a felony.

Even the most gun happy of gun rights folks have to admit that this is idiotic.  And a little insane.  Okay, a lot insane.

Nothing like recognizing the right to free speech.

While I’m as unapologetically pro-second amendment as they come, I’m also just as unaplogetically pro-all-the-other amendments as well, and for the same reasons. Whether we like any of them or not, these are all rights which are supposed to be protected, not trivialized, marginalized, or legislated into irrelevance.

So perhaps somebody can explain to me how supressing one’s right to free speech and expression somehow protects any other right, 2cnd, or otherwise.

Oh…waitaminute…it doesn’t.

Think this idiot will get it?

If anybody does, I’ve got a bridge over the East River in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.

The good news is there is no hearing scheduled and the bill is not on the House calendar. I sincerely hope the people who voted for this idiot are embarrassed, but somehow I think they’re proud of him for protecting their right to wear short sleeves (pun intended).

There are probably tons of moronic bills like this proposed every session.

And here’s yet another argument the right wingers are using, The Dick Act of 1903. This was the act that created the National Guard and tied it to the regular military. Its purpose was to prevent a state from using it’s militia against the national government but the gun nuts interpret it to say that the act prevents the Federal Government from making restrictive laws due to a clause that mentions state militias may not be used outside of the state’s jurisdiction. Therefore buy as many guns as you want, even military weapons. There’s even websites touting this Act as clear protection of the right to arm yourself with whatever gun suits your fancy!

Don’t forget that both parties send people like this to office, Something to start seriously thinking about anytime somebody makes the statist proposition that Big Brother Knows Best to bolster their arguements in favour of banning something…anything at all. (Including but NOT restricted to guns.)

Big Brother does NOT know best and never did.

If Big Brother did know best, we just wouldn’t have the sort of problems that exist today.

Really, both parties? Name 3 dems that are as nutjob as Aikens, Murdoch, and Alan West? I’m sick of this “equivalence” thing where someone says boths sides left and right are equally nutty.  The right denies science, global climate change, womens rights, hates the poor, believes in uber-capitalism.  So what? The left is equally nutty by supporting science too much, supporting GCC and the environment too much, supporting womens right too much?, taking care of the poor too much?  Just stop.

We wouldn’t.

More to the point, they wouldn’t be taking the ones we have (As with the current budget battles) and make them worse.

Big Brother does not know best so I don’t care if anybody here has a left wing statist mindset or a rightwing statist mindset, just get over it and deal with it.

Right, time to get rid of the FDA, FDIC, the military, traffic police, etc. Anarchy should rule.

Its no straw man, with the current “sequestration”  Buffalo airport is going to lose its air controllers, among many other services.  Its time people stop agruing that we don’t need gov’t is necessary, before all the bridges come tumbling down (literally).
