was reading the local newspaper, The Iola Register, opinion page where it was overtaken by the editor on what needs to betaken in the aftermath of the shooting in Tucson. As per usual, he was bad mouthing the NRA. On what he sees as a lack of gun control in the country. Never mind that the legislation he proposes would not have prevented the shooting most likely just decent folks .
When I read such diatribe, I want to go out and buy another gun just because. Which is interesting in that a buddy of mine is interesting in buying the gun I purchased right during the conflagration shortly following the Combine incident.
Well one thing it DOES bring out is there needs to be better record keeping and all the databases tied together or have 1 National Data base thats kept up to date to the day. Had they known he was rejected from the Army for questionable reasons, maybe he might not have been able to purchase the gun or the ammo.
Here's my question, many gun supporters claim we can't regulate or ban guns (or certain ones). well then why do we even bother to ban them from felons or those with psychological problems? Seems like if you can't do one - the flood gate is open - why do anything ?
Don't know if you read the editors comments but like most do he wants all kinds of restrictions on guns. And, I did check on Ariona's laws and they have fewer restrictions then most states. For one, a permit is not needed foe concealed carry.
But if ?Arizona had all the restrictions that any state has in place it would not have prevented this guy from doing what he did. Every state, indeed every country, has laws againstwhat he' did. He knew in advance that he was going to break the law so he was willing to do so. Breaking a gun law certainly would not have stopped him.
This editor, of my newspaper sits in an office inside a building just off of our town square. On the door leading into the building theybhave one of those signs giving notice that firearms are not allowed. I wonder if he feels that that sign protects him from the likes of this shooter who might want to do him harm. In fact that sign does just one thing. It tells a shooter that if he takes a gun into the building his will be the only gun. It makes the shooter feel safe.
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
On another note...I read where that insane bunch at the Westboro Baptist church were going to protest the 9 year old girls funeral who died in the attack...because God hates Catholics and she was Catholic. I have since read they won't protest her funeral if they get some air time. If anybody needs to be shot it's that bunch of hatemongers.
Arizona legislators quickly passed emergency legislation Tuesday to ban picketing by a notorious Kansas church that planned to protest the funeral services for the victims of the Tucson shootings that left six dead, including a 9-year-old girl
A lot of the "family" members of that whacked outfit are lawyers. Stay tooned.
