Boxer to Introduce “Common-Sense” Firearms Act
Yup, nothing like a progressive commie like Babs flagrantly plagiarizing the title of Thomas Paine’s inspirational pamphlet, “Common Sense,” and splicing it directly into the title of her piece of crap gun control legislation.
First of all, I highly doubt Babs has even read Paine’s “Common Sense.” Well… Maybe she has and that is what has Babs so worried. After all, Thomas Paine once famously said, “Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property… Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.” And, we all know that Babs is yet another progressive-commie invader plundering America’s property.
Secondly, considering that this current Congress has voted into effect a rule of order in which one must cite appropriate authorization from the U.S. Constitution when introducing legislation, I am quite curious as to what part of “shall not be infringed” she will choose to hang her guns upon.
Thirdly, John Boehner has an A rating from the NRA. I highly doubt he will jeopardize that particular rating just because Barbara Boxer is afraid of guns. Good luck getting your anti-gun bill out of committee, Babs! Hehehehe.
And, finally, this just goes to show that commies like Babs will use any excuse, any “crisis,” anything they can dream of in order to deprive the public’s rightful access to guns. Why? Because they know, and we all know—whether instinctive or not—that guns and the “militia,” right now, are the only things keeping America from tumbling headlong into a full-blown commie-progressive dictatorship:
Boxer to Introduce Common-Sense Concealed Firearms Act of 2011
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) today announced that […] she will introduce the Common-Sense Concealed Firearms Act of 2011, which would require all states that allow residents to carry concealed weapons in public to have minimum standards for granting permits.
Senator Boxer said, “The tragic events in Tucson earlier this month are a reminder of why we need common-sense gun laws. This measure will establish reasonable permitting standards for Americans who wish to carry concealed firearms. According to a recent poll, more than 60 percent of respondents believe there should be a reasonable permitting process for those who wish to carry concealed firearms.”
Senator Boxer’s legislation would require all states that allow residents to carry concealed weapons to establish permitting processes that would include meaningful consultation with local law enforcement authorities to determine whether the permit applicant is worthy of the public trust and has shown good cause to carry a concealed firearm.
Currently, two states do not permit residents to carry concealed firearms, while three states, including Arizona, allow residents to carry concealed firearms in public without a permit. The other 45 states require residents to obtain permits to carry concealed firearms, but the majority of these states would not meet the standard set in this bill.
Senator Boxer plans to introduce the legislation when the Senate reconvenes next week.Explore posts in the same categories: Abuse of Power, Gun Control, politics, Right to Bear Arms, Self Defense, Sucky Senators
