The NRA's interpretation from the beginning of their existence until the 1970s when gun nuts overthrew a leadership dedicated to gun safety and training for one dedicate to profits for the firearms industry and paranoid preppers.
Even USSCJ Scalia allows that firearms can be regulated based on his interpretation of the law. There are numerous instances of outright bans on firearms within the town limits in the old Western US to control rampant violence in the 1800s. There were also limitations on types of firearms during the 1930s of serial bank robberies and organized crime. These eras are now romanticized by children of the TV age, often confusing firearms with manhood, ignorant of the fact that state and national leaders throughout our nation's history have repeatedly seen fit to regulate firearms for the public good. To protect the innocent bystander from gun nuts that endangered the lives of everyone around them. Just like they do today.
Well at least we are moving in the right direction: Now "1 in 15K" is a success, whereas previously "Everyone that went for the governments idea of "we can help" ended up getting burned". Where are you getting your figures from?
Hmm, Seems like business as usual on the right. Eliminate the distortions, fabrications and lies and there is actually no basis to their story of PP selling body parts. Add this one to ACORN, voter fraud, Benghazi and the IRS Tea Party tax discrimination on the ash heap of discredited, factually fallacious tales told by conservatives.
If shooting deaths were simply a matter of race (a meaningless and unscientific way to categorize humans in my opinion) one would expect rates to be higher for blacks than for whites regardless of circumstances. What research has shown however is that whites in Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Wyoming are at least twice as likely as blacks in New York State or Massachusetts to be shot to death. Point being, despite the simplistic beliefs of a few here, there is something other than a racial component contributing to the United States leading the world in gun violence. A good place to start would be looking at the successful policies of NY and Massachusetts vs. those less successful policies of states like Mississippi and Oklahoma. http://kff.org/other/state-indicator/firearms-death-rate-by-raceethnicity/
Hmm, this seems to contradict what the tondi was suggesting... Large number of easily accessible firearms and shooting deaths correlated? Say it ain't so NRA/GOA http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/american-exceptionalism-and-the-‘exceptionally-american’-problem-of-mass-shootings/ar-BBm9m4V
The downtown Seattle event was celebrating the 80th birthday of Social Security and had multiple speakers It was not organized by Sen Sanders, he was an invited guest speaker. The event organizers had given instructions to police monitoring the event not interfere if protesters took the stage. The BLM protesters were allowed to speak for over ten minutes after rushing the stage and grabbing the mic. They made demands for giving the microphone back however, when the organizers met their demands the protesters just made more demands. It was clear the BLM protesters were only interested in creating a scene regardless of how cooperative event organizers tried to be. Bottomline: It wasn't Sander's event and organizers weren't going to force the BLM protesters from the stage. Sander's actual political rally went off without a hitch later that night for 15 thousand people at the University of Washington.
How many times have the cops "stopped and frisked" you outside your home this week g5? ... or anyone in your neighborhood for that matter. It isn't just about the laws, it is how law enforcement chooses to enforce those laws.
It really doesn't make much difference, just so long as we have an opportunity to try out all those cool, high tech, killing devices the MIC has pawned off on the US taxpayer, it's all good. Watch out geographically disadvantaged brown people, here we come to rock your world! Sucks to be you! USA! USA! USA!
