Krull is konfused.
'the right to bear arms' is a right. You don't have to register
a right, which Krull wants us to do. It is another misdirection
from real issues like mental health and social issues.
For public safety, how about registering people with any
metal illness and make it public so we know who is living
next door to us. Want to take on the APA Krull? Try it.
Proving once again that the "faithful" constantly troll the net, so they can Immediately shoot down a heretical opinion. Honestly, you NEVER get six responses to a NUVO column in six hours. Well, thanks for playing, guys. I hear somebody wrote something bad about Jesus in some Minnesota rag. Go get'em.
I do not think that Ted Cruz lost any Texas votes and I am glade that I voted for him.
No doubt they are trying to brain wash the public with fraudulent poll results, I guess they are trying to get their moneys worth! They have the best pollsters that money can buy!
I wonder why polls that Bloomberg paid for or made million dollar donations to came out the way the Bloomberg and his mayors support? Duh! The polls never came out the way everyone I know feels! With all the corruption with this administration from Gun Walker, Benghazi, IRS, Media and Voting fraud. I would bet that the polls go right along with the rest of the Illinois Mafioso bunch.
You guys notice how many liberals have been writing what is essentially the same article on many different news outlets?
I think they are all being fed their talking points from OFA or MAIG.
Funny, I've never come across this 90% study or poll...Let us do a new poll with just a few more questions. Some polling was done right after Newtown, which leads to skewed opinions.
After all we all want safer cars, I'm sure you could poll that at over 90%...but when you then tell them it would add 20% to the price of a new car, people will revisit their opinions.
Nice try Krull. What the Senators voted against wasn't a "a proposal calling for universal background checks to make sure that convicted criminals and people with mental illness couldn't buy deadly firearms." That proposal would have done nothing to prevent criminals from getting guns. It would only have handicapped law abiding citizens efforts to transfer guns. What the Senators ACTUALLY voted against was opening the gates and rolling in the Trojan Horse. The ONLY way to enforce universal background checks is if you know who owns every gun (else how would you know one had been transferred?). This ABSOLUTELY necessitates a national gun registry. THAT is what the Senators were voting against.
As for this comment "Almost all of the 45 U.S. senators who voted to do the NRA's bidding saw an immediate plunge in their public approval ratings.". Well let me give you another credible statistic, almost 100% of readers believe you are lying.
No one needs to implement reforms or any other changes. The problem is execution. It doesn't matter how many meetings had or education laws passed; the results of these changes are not evident.
The last attempt happened in '76 -get your facts straight. That's over three decades ago. If you are a so-called economic development activist, does that mean that you support TIF's and corporate welfare -cutting important city services in order to enrich well connected developers? You clearly have no understanding of what the grassroots republican platform is about, and have no concern for legitimate local control -which means you probably fit in perfectly with the Marion County GOP. You just want an 'in' like the rest of the parasites who want to gut this county to satisfy their greed. Good luck going nowhere with an intellect like yours.
Sounds like a guilty conscience. Kinda like people who do wrong and then all of a sudden they find god. I doubt you ever would've come to this revelation had you not plowed down someone in a wheelchair. Probably left out the part where you were texting while driving.
Maybe we should have background checks on the first amendment also. Before anyone talks in any media, blog or editorial they have to undergo mental health tests and writing training. All newspapers should have corporate test too about
their ability to be cogent.
The 1st Amendment (like the Second) a right, needs to be tamed in today's media world.
If it was me, you would get a federal minimum of 20 years for being in possession of an unregistered weapon of any kind. If it is found to have been a stolen gun, life. Although, to enforce such rigid laws the first thing we have to do is require the registration of all guns, including rifles and shotguns.
Just to buy a gun you should be interviewed by a current police detective AND a psychologist, besides the background check. None of these things would violate your second amendment rights. It may not stop someone from getting a gun, but it would sure slow them down.
Also, it should go without saying, that if you give access to anyone who is not cleared, through the registration process, to even touch your guns, you should go to prison for a long time. If you give or sell a gun to a person who then uses it to commit a crime, if that person is convicted and it is found that you gave him/her the gun, you should be given the exact same sentence.
Yet more dribble on guns, not a focus on the real issue...crime. Just diversions from mental health issues,
thugs, a micro culture of violence in movies, video games
and on TV. Yes, it has been shown these have an effect on behavior in many studies, but liberals back off Hollywood.
Not one mention of social conditions, individuals and crimes.
And states and cities with the most control over guns have the most crime. Chicago and D. C. for example.
The real lobbying is done by APA and the hush laws on mental illness.
Wow, you said what I have and many of us have been thinking for a long time, I hope you sent this to the NRA and the White House, as well as Congress. I also might add you can't get a loan unless you have good credit maybe that might be a way to keep guns out of the hands of people who are not responsible.
I thought that when Mexico changes it's constitution to allow foreign oil companies to come in and drill and process oil would save the entire western hemisphere. One report I saw said that Mexico alone has more oil than Saudi Arabia. I think we'll just be fed whatever information makes us believe we'll have to keep pumping profits into the oil companies pockets.
Publicity stunt, and it worked. Got an interview with Oprah. Will probably get offers from NBA teams...even though he isn't a very good player. This has gotten more publicity than anything Harvey Milk ever did...and that's pathetic. Mr. Collins is no trailblazer...more like an opportunist.
Republicans have overwhelmingly held those seats for years. I think the first attempt to eliminate the at-larges occurred in the mid-70s.
There is an interesting analysis of Stealers Wheel's "Stuck in the middle with you" and how they created it in the style of Dylan, but that it was in fact their own.
Stuck in the middle with you- a Dylan song.
