This guy is not only a drunk, he’s also a liar.
He claims to want to free the states from the tyranny of the Federal GUBMINT-except when he doesn’t. Like in this instance. In a move just sure to create millions and millions of extra jobs for Americans (just like all the laws targeting women have done, as well as declaring “In God We Trust” to be the official UHMUHRUICUN motto-look at the jobs created by THAT!), the Rushpubliscum Do-Nothing Klanbagger Kongress is trying to shove bullshit down the throats of the States.
Just about anyone, you would think, would understand that the need for gun control may be a lot different in a densely-populated state than it would be on the prairie. But not these morons, who have STILL done absolutely NOTHING about the country’s economic situation.
If you vote to send any of these bastard reprobates back to Congress, you are either bat-shit crazy, lump of coal stupid, or both.
If congressional gun-rights stalwarts get their way, a firearms owner with a concealed-weapons permit issued in Utah could be allowed to carry that gun in New York — regardless of the gun laws in the Empire State.
But as the House prepares to vote on a bill Wednesday that would allow that and please a core GOP constituency, critics are throwing another core Republican belief back at the party: states’ rights.
GOP backers of the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act — which would allow those with a concealed-weapons permit in one state to carry their firearms elsewhere as long as that state also allows concealed carrying — say they don’t see that as an issue.
“It’s kind of like having a driver’s license,” said Rep. Trent Franks (W-Inbred Harelip), a vocal supporter of the bill who penned an op-ed in USA Today this week on the measure. “There are some states that have stricter driving laws than others.”
But their opponents — including one prominent Republican — are crying foul over the measure, arguing that the bill goes against the Republican Party’s core belief in states’ rights.
Rep. Dan Lungren of California was the sole GOP lawmaker on the House Judiciary Committee to reject the measure.
“It’s a clash of two interests: Second Amendment rights and the 10th Amendment, the idea of federalism,” Lungren said in an interview Tuesday. “I think it’s a states’ rights issue.”
Still, the bill has the support of a broad base of Republicans, as well as some Democrats.
“I don’t think it’s a violation of states’ rights because it doesn’t repeal any right that a state has to have or not have its own laws,” said Rep. Charlie Bass (R-N.H.). “The fact is, we have a tradition in this country of upholding other states’ laws [and] allowing them to apply in other states.”
Currently, every state except Illinois issues some form of a concealed weapons permit that allows those who are licensed to carry guns. Standards and requirements vary from state to state — with some locations mandating more stringent training and background checks than others.
Won’t it be wonderful, when people like Jared Loughner can pack the same heat in NYC that they can in Tucson?
This bunch of Rushpubliscums (and their “Blue Dick” dem allies) are the stupidest, most useless, most disgraceful bunch of bums ever to be assembled anywhere-and I am consciously including the prison system in that observation. The “Occupy” people should move right into their empty heads, since there is ample room for crowds of almost any size to be found there.
