Assault weapons -- the bipedal type

Posted By Jim Johnson

It's easier and cheaper to ban assault rifles and tighten gun controls. Making sure mentally/emotionally disturbed persons are identified and get outpatient help, or if needed, confinement is too costly. Brutal killers like the one who ambushed the firefighters are not always given LWOP so they end up back on the street and usually kill again.

Wyoming fires one across the Feds bow with the proposed "gun protection act" making any federal law regarding semi-autos and magazine limits unenforable within its state borders.

While that's good it probably won't hold up as the Feds always trump state law unless the Supreme Court intervines.

It takes a $43B budget to come up with cogent advice like this:

And in the event of a nuclear missle launched to the west coast by North Korea, hide under a sturdy desk or in an interior room such a bathroom (take cover in a bathtub is ideal).

Social engineering. The purpose of school used to be teaching reading, writing, arithmetic and citizenship. No more.

Let's use this as a model for every state...

I saw a story on CBS news (liberals yeah but that's what the family likes). They have a small team and they are woefully behind in confiscation. They have 40,000 guns by 20,000 people. One of the officers said they are just treading water as the list grows each year and their harvest is too small to get them ahead. There doesn't seem to be an effort by the state to add enough officers. They use a large team as criminals and crazies do not like the idea of giving up their guns.
