You've transitioned from hyperbole to rant.
See ya.

Nope someone who just knows what they are talking about.

Some of us don't have to resort to petty attacks.



In its 1997 decision in the case, the Supreme Court ruled that the provision of the Brady Act that compelled state and local law enforcement officials to perform the background checks was unconstitutional on 10th amendment grounds.


en.wikipedia.org...



However, the overall Brady statute was upheld and state and local law enforcement officials remained free to conduct background checks if they so chose.


Unconstitutional but gets upheld anyway.

That's why the Scotus has NO credibility.

Um. No. The background checks required by the Brady Act were not upheld.

They were ruled unconstitutional because it placed the responsibility of performing the checks (required by a federal law) on state and local law enforcement. They were, therefore, in violation of the 10th amendment and removed from the law. Your own quote says that.

Repeating yourself doesn't mean you've made a point. The SCOTUS saying it's Constitutional doesn't make it so.

That is why there are 3 branches of government and the people.

so when is the vote for the bill, has it passed the senate, no.
and it's not going to happen. i doubt it will pass the house.

the congress people know that if they try to pass a gun ban law right now that hell will be raised.
to many people buying guns now. that sends a signal to them.

In a normal world I may agree with you.

Now ask yourself what other odious law just got passed because someone tacked it on to the NASA spending bill.

OOPS! How did that happen?

Your system is really stuffed right now. I think it is full of dirt bags kept inline with lots of money. Congress is a cesspool. Needs a good cleanout.

It makes it the law of the land. Like it or not. Agree with it or not. According to the SCOTUS, some gun laws are constitutional (and some are not). According to you, none are. Guess who wins?

I wouldn't waste your time, repeating facts to those refusing to know what a fact is, is futile.

One of the first things I learned in STATE politics in college was, "The Supreme Court is the Law of the Land."

Guess who I was? The dude in class who said things like, "So we leave a Court system that has a history of raping the Consitution in charge of deciding what is/isn't Consitutional?"

But guess what... they do.

Also how Saudi Arabia is on the UN Council for Human Rights.

It's absolutely hilarious yet treacherous at the same time.

"The SCOTUS ruling that it's Consitutional doesn't make it so."

No, you're wrong. You have an OPINION that you think it doesn't make it so, and it's being confused with the FACT, that the Supreme Courts ruling is indeed Consitutional - you would learn this within three to four days after taking an entry-level political class at a public university.

Whether or not you agree with it - I do not - is completely irrelevant.

Now... is it nigh time that, "we the people," actually stand up and do something about it? Too busy watching television to care, sorry.

The People will win that fight anytime mr.socialist paid troll for the DNC lol. They can make up whatever they want. When 100 million stand up and make their displeasure known they will not have a choice in the matter. Its do what the people want or run for your life.

A revolution? No. I don't think a revolution is called for.
But I do know that whining won't do much.

The Democrats introduce a new AWB into Congress almost every year. They never go anywhere and neither will this one. Note that so far, of 123 co-sponsors, exactly zero of them are Republicans, which isn't surprising, especially in an election year, but without some GOP crossover, it has no chance of passing the House. Most likely, it'll never even come up for a vote.

So, the SCOTUS, in a way, plays the part of a jury which decides to acquit against the instructions of a judges instructions to convict....That judge being the constitution....

My understanding of it is that the constitution is a set of parameters put in place to prevent government from infringing upon the natural born rights of the people.

I suppose if more than a certain percentage of people rejected the decision to give up their weapons voluntarily, the gubmint would be hard pressed to carry through with the order to go get them.

Just say no, nullify through failure to respond to the order to surrender the weapons.

What?, does anyone actually think they'll sweep the entire country, house by house, to confiscate the arms in question?.

A blanket warrant to search every household in the entire country?.

Really.

There are other amendments that are going to have to be nullified before the gubmint can legally/lawfully come and take your stuff, such as the fourth.

But then, tyranny through the exploitation of the ignorance of the majority of people in this country isn't so hard to envision for me.

Worked in Australia, now they are at the mercy of the criminals who don't care about laws and know most don't have any way of defending themselves against them.

The biggest and most corrupt criminals in the world are the governments themselves when they have supposed majority public opinion on their side.

Your worst enemy is your ignorant neighbor.

If my congressmen and senators from Tennessee ever voted for that bill, I would make it my "mission from God" to see to it, that they aren't re-elected next term. Further, you can have my gun when you pry it ..., well you know the rest.

Incase you haven't guessed I am very pro gun.

Call the bastards, or whatever it takes...

Gun control has nothing to do with guns and everything to do with control. Don't let your emotions be used against you. How smart is leaving an obviously corrupt, thieving group, that murders daily (The government) as the only people with weapons? Might be fine for a while but what happens when they stop killing brown people overseas, and decide it's you they don't like? Prohibition doesn't work. It is NOT the answer. It is just another erosion of your natural right as a human to protect yourself and your loved ones in the same way, and from these manipulative scum..

Prohibition? No, that doesn't work. Humans like to taste the forbidden fruit.
Control? Yes, that does work. In general. Not, however, for America's specific circumstances.

You should really all be screaming bloody murder about all the rights that have already and are currently being infringed. By, namely, the Patriot Act. Keep a watchful eye here, but don't let gun control distract you from the stuff that actually matters.

LIKE THE TPP WHICH THIS IS BEING USED TO DISTRACT YOU FROM. Gun Control always comes up when the Government wants to sneak something through. This time, it is the TPP.
