Democrat’s Proposal Will Force Gun Owners to Store Assault Weapons At Government Approved Storage Depots


Massachusetts State Rep. David P. Linsky and Barack Obama

Massachusetts State Representative David Linsky has filed a new bill that would force gun owners to undergo mental health background checks, pay an additional 25% tax on all forms of ammunition, and require firearms categorized as “assault weapons” to be stored outside of their homes at government approved sites.
Natick Patch reported, via Black Listed News:

“This bill is a comprehensive effort to reduce all types of gun violence – murders, intentional shootings, accidental shootings and suicides.  There is not one solution to reducing gun violence – we can’t eliminate it – but there are a lot of common-sense steps that we can take to significantly reduce the everyday tragedy of gun violence and deaths,” said Linsky…

…“I have spoken with hundreds of people over the past few weeks in developing this legislation – victims, police officers, criminologists, physicians, and yes – gun owners and sportsmen,” stated Linsky. “There are a lot of good ideas out there. We should all have one goal – reducing gun violence and trying to keep more tragedies from happening.”

Provisions in the bill include:

  • Having one standard of the issuance of all gun licenses, giving local police chiefs the ability to evaluate all aspects of an application for a gun license.
  • Requires proof of liability insurance for possession of a firearm, rifle or shotgun.
  • Requires that all large capacity weapons and grandfathered assault weapons must be stored at gun clubs or target ranges.
  • Requires live shooting as part of the curriculum for a basic firearms safety course; this is not a current requirement.
  • Requires all applicants for gun licenses and FID cards to sign a waiver of mental health records for review to be destroyed after decision.
  • Imposes 25% sales tax on ammunition, firearms, shotguns, and rifles; dedicates funds towards firearms licensing, police training, mental health services, and victim’s services.
  •  Brings Massachusetts into compliance with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
  • Limits gun buyers to one firearm purchase per month.

That way if someone breaks in your house, all you have to do is run down to the local gun storage facility to get your guns.
It makes perfect sense.

    Sounds like confiscation to me – and making you pay to have your guns confiscated to boot! What part of “shall make no law” do they not understand?

    I propose a bill that would require all those running for elected office to undergo mental health background checks, criminal backgrounds checks, pay an additional 25% tax on all forms of campaign contributions from any source.

    This bill is a comprehensive effort to stop all criminal or mental health issues from affecting the American people from those who MAKE THE LAW.

    We the people delegated certain enumerated powers to our elected officials and the foremost of them is to PROTECT our natural rights we specifically mentioned in our founding documents.

    Those MAKING law should certainly be even more examined than an otherwise law abiding citizen. See Ray Nagin as the latest example. See Al Gore as a late example.
    If these people had to go through the same checks many would never be elected or re-elected.
    Example of a mental health background check for elected officials.
    Elected officials are not even barred from running for office if they are confined to a mental hospital ward for 6 months. During the election. And getting re-elected in his hospital bed.

    Anything firearm owners or buyers must go through, elected officials must go through. We have a specific right to keep and bear arms, we do not have the specific right to be an elected official.

    It really is just about time to split the US into (2) seperate countries or have another civil war.
    The Democrats are certifiably insane.

  • paul52

    This bill is just confiscation spelled another way.

  • And who are all these people who would need to undergo mental health examinations, White conservative Christian’s? I thought liberals want to come up with “common sense” solutions to gun violence? This sounds more like “stupid” solutions. There’s no common sense to any of these solutions, and besides that there are no common sense solutions that would change the attitudes and mindsets of a whole race of people. And I’m talking about the race of people who commit 97% of all crimes in the U.S. in any year, and that is the Black race. And illegal Mexican’s are catching up with those numbers very fast with the continued open borders policy of our current government. And I mean current government because it’s not going to last indefinately and forever because even the Communist Party didn’t last forever in Russia. As time moves on people change from being ignorant to informed and when that happens governments topple from demands made on them that the government cannot hold back indefinately. Eventually freedom, which is a God given intention, cannot be resisted by tyrants who even themselves change. It may not seem likely that Obama would ever change but he will, he’ll have to.

  • This is typical for Democratic proposals. Shoot for the moon, settle for your wallet. Next week they will shoot for the moon again, settle for your car. Repeat until they own everything you once owned.

  • Sam Stone

    “giving local police chiefs the ability to evaluate all aspects of an application for a gun license.”

    No government can delegate to any other entity of government the power to unilaterally decide a natural right on a case by case basis. The RTKB is not within the power of those who we have not delegated that power to.

  • That’s exactly how the British handled confiscation.

  • “this bill is a comprehensive to reduce all types of gun violence,” it is like hell! it another attempt to increase the power that the politicans have over the american people and take more of their income, the two favorite practices of the modern american politican.

    Of course when you listen to dem pundits and the MSM, they say no way would they ever want to confiscate guns. They just work their way there incrementaly, like this dem–what a bunch of liars–

    So gun permit records are public knowledge, and major news outlets are unable to find any for Nancy Lanza. Not even for the AR-15 rifle? The police are saying that those guns were registered to her and she had permits for them, but apparently the public records themselves are not supporting their theories.

    The more that Obama assaults the Const , whether it is 1st, 2nd, 14th or 10th, the more he risks and Dems risk of reminding people of historical tyrants: Nazis, Communists, Islamists. They all want to disarm their legal opponents rights to legal protection. It is now almost silly to see the lengths libs will go to portray conservs, Pubs, Christians, and 10th Amend. plus 1st ande 2nd Amend. believers and followers as racist terrorists! Enough. These Dems should all be punished severely at the polls in 2013 and 2014. State nullification on un-Const bills are just around the corner.

  • dwdude

    need to add language that states ” for any household member of a gun owner that is killed due to lack of access to their guns for self defense, regional politician responsible for enacting said legislation will be immediately hanged in the town square. this will help protect citizens from future irrational decisions made by anti constitutional politician” there aren’t enough police in the world to protect these nitwits should the patriots in this country decide no more…and as indicated by this poor excuse for a human beings actions, that time is coming.

    Obama’s Gun Control push is a COMPLETE FARCE. Another scam being perpetrated on the American people. Do you care?

    – why did someone identifying herself as the school nurse say Nancy Lanza was a teacher at Sandy Hook? There is NO school nurse in the SH records!
    – why did 6 year old Emily Parker’s “dad” Robbie create a memorial page on FB a couple hours before the school was even in lockdown?
    – the real Robbie Parker of Newton is 57 years old — the “dad” in the press conference looks to be about 40.
    – why did Emily Parker not appear in any of her class photos?
    – why is there a picture of Emily with her sisters & parents, sitting on President Obama’s lap AFTER THE SHOOTING?
    – why did the neighbor who found 6 kids on his driveway (interviewed by Megyn Kelly!) say the kids were from a class in which ALL the kids were killed? (and did you know he’s a member of the Screen Actors Guild?)
    – why did Gene, the neighbor say he looked at the casualty list … 2 days before it was released?
    – what happened to the guy police arrested in the woods outside the school? Or the other guy detained in the police car?
    – why did the Coroner say the kids were killed with the assault rife that was found, unused, in Adam Lanza’s trunk?
    – did you know there was a FEMA / DHS course called “Planning for the needs of children in Disasters” scheduled in Connecticut, across the bridge from Newtown, from 9am to 4pm on DEC 14, 2012 .. the exact same date & time as the Sandy Hook massacre?

Just this week Governor Deval (Obama’s mini me) Patrick proposed raising the state income tax, gas tax registry fees and so on to fund his transportation/infrastructure wish list. It never effing ends. EBT cards, in-state tuition, drivers licenses all for illegals yet law abiding gun owners are treated with contempt. I DESPISE Democrats.

  • FU#K OBAMA
  • Patty

    It bears repeating, WITHOUT A WARRANT. This downgrades the 2nd Amendment from a “right” to bear arms, to a “privilege”, and I imagine anyone who has their guns confiscated will find it not only extremely slow and difficult to get them back, but very expensive as well.

    But then of course, only those who are mentally ill will have their guns confiscated, right? But then who are the arbiters of mental illness, who decides who is crazy and who is sane? Where is the line drawn? It’s important to note that neither Adam Lanza nor James Holmes were diagnosed as seriously mentally ill until after they went off the reservation, and while it sounds like a good idea to add a mental health provision to the background checks already in place, it paves the way for government to not only refuse the sale of weapons, but also seize them from whomever they please. While no one wants John Q. Nutcase to have access to firearms, we should tread very carefully when allowing federal agencies to be the final judge of whether an individual is sane enough to have their second amendment right.

    Make no mistake, mental health is the gateway to total gun control. At first it will only be the seriously mentally ill and those who have been institutionalized who will have their rights stripped, but then it will expand:

    You went to a shrink and got antidepressants after your wife left you? You’re a potential threat, no gun for you.
    Your parents divorced so you misbehaved in class and got sent to the school psychiatrist? You could go back to that school and shoot the place up, sorry, no guns for you.
    You believe the government orchestrated 9-11? Only a crazy person would believe such things, you’re definitely not getting a gun.
    You regularly visit conspiracy websites like ATS? You get the picture.

    Notice how when somebody is labeled as a “conspiracy theorist” on television, is is almost always preceded by “crazy”, “paranoid”, or both.

    So ask yourself then, are you “sane” enough to own a gun? If yours were confiscated tomorrow and you had to go before a judge, do you think the judge would give them back? What if they read aloud your rantings on ATS in that courtroom during the proceedings, brought up your Facebook page and showed e-mail correspondences, how likely are you to get your guns back now? As Homer Simpson learned, it’s awfully hard to get that red “Insane” stamp scrubbed off your hand.

    OK, so they basically want us to store our guns in their “Approved” storage and I have to pay a storage fee for their facility? So when the 1st couple of people that can’t get their guns out because the government loses them, then wtf are they going to do??? And then I have to pay extra insurance for them and that makes my insurance premiums go up. Umm, 25% increase on ammo and etc? Really? Do they not understand that because the economy is so bad, we are paying more now than what we were? It’s a multi-billion dollar industry; hell in some places, the store will only sell you 2 boxes of ammo of any caliber at one time because the stores and the manufacturers can barely keep up with the current demands for guns and ammo. Funny how in Georgia, the Probate judge and the State GBI (Georgia State Police) do all of the background checks to include checking with the FBI!! So why is it just now Massachusetts brings into compliance with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Where were you guys for the past 40 plus years?? Probably asleep or too busy trying to count your voters and the money you all made? Also limiting 1 gun per month, really that’s like saying your only allowed to buy 1 tank of gas a month, or only 1 gallon of milk. It’s simple if you can afford it then you buy it if you can’t then you can save for it!!! Now Massachusetts Requires all applicants for gun licenses and FID cards to sign a waiver of mental health records for review to be destroyed after decision; whose business and whose right is it to say if someone has depression say at 1 time (like going through a divorce or death in the family, etc, and then they are no longer “depressed”, then what does that person have to do, and who is authorized to approve of the change, or how long will it take? Years maybe, who and why should someone say if they can own a gun or not? Really??? Some people go to see mental help professionals, some fish, drag race, hunt, ride motorcycles, and plenty others like me go and shoot. It’s a stress reliever, and it helps to brush up on shooting skills…. How about this: start holding the individual responsible for their actions instead of mass punishing of everyone else. How about the laws currently on the books they start to enforce, instead of re-doing laws that counter the current laws. Thanks for the information, now I know where not to live! Semper Fi! USMC SSgt (01-12) oh and MOLON LABE!!!

    Answer: No.

    Any more questions from people crazier than Jim Jones?

    Here’s a tip for you, Oliver, and those who believe crap like that to which you have repeatedly linked:

    Disinformation. Not “misinformation”, but wrong information, Disinformation, intentionally-seeded to grow into whole crazy trees in minds like yours.

    When it doesn’t happen like these so-called “lightworkers” and believers in “Chemtrails” say, will you look to these same liars for clarification? For “new received knowledge” like the Jehovah’s Witnesses do every time their church’s so-called “prophesies” don’t come to pass?

    I’ll pass.

    I think you folks need Christ, and you need to pray for the gift of discernment.

    Because right now? You’ll believe anything. HAARP Mind Control. Chupacabrae. Chemtrails. ANYTHING.

  • JDR-Taq

    The conspiracies are real, Oliver.

    The problem is: you have a 200-piece jigsaw puzzle to which you have been given 2,000 pieces, and you’re (and those kook-site disinfo masters who have you in their snare) trying to make all 2,000 pieces fit together.

    Those extra 1,800 pieces were thrown in there, just to mess your mind up.

    Read a fiction by Robert Anton Wilson called “Illuminatus Trilogy”, and pay very close attention to his descriptions and explanations of Disinformation.

    More than that, pray to Christ for discernment.

    NY STATE ASSEMBLYMAN SOUNDS THE ALARM: Democrats’ First Gun Bill Ordered Confiscation of Firearms!
    I wonder how many Ruby Ridge incidents this blatant attack on the Constitution would have touched off? New York State Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin explains:

    Here it is. This is the video where I was asked to keep the Democrat proposals for the NY SAFE Act away from the public. This list was given to me by a colleague and it is not confidential.

    This bill was an attack on the 2nd amendment and the Democrats clearly wanted to dismantle the work of the Founding Fathers. None of these amendments were included in the final bill thanks to us fighting back. I will not stand silent while these unpatriotic proposals are pathetically thrown at us a 11 o’clock at night:

    1. Confiscation of “assault weapons”
    2. Confiscation [of] ten round clips
    3. Statewide database for ALL Guns
    4. Continue to allow pistol permit holder’s information to be [revealed] to the public
    5. Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as “assault weapons”
    6. Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines
    7. Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines
    8. Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month
    9. Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners
    10. Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years
    11. State issued pistol permits
    12. Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State
    13. Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers
    14. Mandatory locking of guns at home
    15. Fee for licensing, registering weapons

    We know precisely what Democrats want: they seek to confiscate all firearms from law-abiding citizens, leaving only the state (and criminals) with a monopoly on force. These people are precisely the would-be tyrants our Founders feared, and on whom they placed explicit constraints as they designed the Constitution.

    These Democrats are your prototypical, power-hungry elitists who despise the very citizenry they purport to serve.

    They want to label certain things “assault weapons”?

    Well, here it is: I’m labeling every current member of the Democrat Party an assault weapon on the Constitution.

    This way Adam Lanza wouldn’t have been able to get his hands on a weapon that made it easy for him to exterminate 20 kids. Oh wait, if you ask Louie Gohmert, a hammer would have worked. AND HURR DURR A GUY IN CHINA STABBED TWENNY KIDS (by the way NONE OF THEM DIED). What, do you nuts need automatic weapons to defend your Dale Earnhardt collectors plates? What’s the death toll on your gun appreciation day?

    Nothing would bring me more joy than watching you sit idly by watching the ATF confiscate every last one of your precious little pop guns. But that won’t ever happen, we just have to live with the fact that crazy, ignorant scum get to own dangerous weapons. At least many of you will knock each other off from accidents, which occur about 50 times than you actually use them to fend off criminals.

    The whole point of this whole matter is the communist government of the USSA is going to take your guns, one way or another, and what are you all going to do about it. Quit going down the list of how it is going to start and what the end results are going to be – total confiscation and submittance to communism and/or a world government and death. Americans should not allow New York residents to lose their 2nd Amendment right or any others where bills are being passed. The people should be taking to the streets in protest in the millions. All talk and no action.

    All the hoopla and the family was dysfunctional and health problems. No AMERICANS ARE AT FAULT. This is sick. We are considered monsters if we own a gun, why because of one dysfunctional family who killed. The blame lies in all the above and the inevitable.

  • Everyone who I have heard has gotten it wrong. La Pierre did NOT say he wanted police in every school. He said, “…as much money as the government spends, you’d think they could have paid to put a cop in every school.” Is that explainatory enough? He said that with all the money the Obama administration has spent on union payoffs, and solar company giveaway’s that they have spent equivilant to paying to put a cop in every school by now. That the government under a Socialist Democrat control always spends huge money on stuff they want, that is until something bad happens and then they always blame everyone else for their spending programs failing. And those who get the blame will always say “Well you could have spent some money on the real problems but you never do. You always are so busy throwing money to your supporters that you never want to spend OUR money on real problems, that is until something bad happens and then when it’s to late, people die.

    It’s the same situation now. They know that the problems are getting worse and worse, but I’m going to do a little twist on what Rahm Emanuel said about not letting a crisis go to waste. I say, why spend money on a real crisis when if you wait a little longer until things get out of control, then you can spend twice as much! Pretty good, huh?

  • bigL

    Can’t do this. Violates Article I Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution. Not in the Bill of Rights but in the body of the Constitution
    Read it for yourself. No Bills opf Attainder. This clause is not the Red Coats coming to occupy
    your home but is “tainting” legal activity of Americansw/o a judicial hearing
    “An act of legislation declaring a person or persons guilty of something and punishing them w/o privilege of a judicial trial.this doens’t take an act of Congress to fight I think any one can file on this to block this MA idiot’s bill.

  • Or “Why spend money on a real crisis when if you wait until people start dieing you can spend twice as much.” How’s that? If our politician’s spent our money on the debt they would have much more to spend on a crisis, like after Hurrican Sandy and all those poor people up there on Staten Island who are still don’t have a place to lay their heads. Are they still eating MRE’s? Nooo, don’t spend money on the debt, you might mess up and actually pay off enough to have money in the Treasury. But then again that money all goes out in foreign aid is what I hear. Not a penny is kept in this country for anything we really need.

    This jerk wad of a fat little Socialist has got his head stuck up Obama’s butt they have to pump day light in there to him so he’ll know it’s time to go to work.

  • Tricky Dick

    Screw you linsky. You party oversaw the abortion of over 4 million unborn children since Obama took office. If you care about children just kill yourself.

  • That is the way it is in Great Britain. If you own a shot gun or rifle you have to belong to a “shooting club” or a “hunting club”. You have to have your guns locked up in a gun safe at the club and you can’t just go get them whenever you want to shoot them. You can only get at them when the club is open and otherwise on days they hold competition or whatever. But otherwise you cannot have a gun at your home.

    See, talk about our government taking to using laws found in other countries for our laws. They have been doing that for a long time it’s just until here with laws that are contriversial that we see them out in the open. Obama is not an American citizen so he only knows about using laws from other countries, except that is Africa because no one can own a gun in African nations because all these petty dictators are afraid that the people would kill him in a heart beat. Notice Obama makes Secret Service protection for LIFE?!! Gee, I wonder why? You think he’s so damn paranoid now that he wouldn’t want to not be the President and on his own after a measly ten years, or whatever it is, and be at the mercy of the American people? Mercy my ass. He deserves no mercy whatsoever. He has none for us!

    Now, I’m realy surprised that Obama is going after our guns like he is because it’s against Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals that you are not to ever go after big issues like gun control unless you know that you will have the upper hand over the people no matter what. In other words Obama shouldn’t be letting anyone in his government talk about anything like taking our guns from us because Saul Alinsky knew it would cause people to freak out and possibly come for you right then. Then he would loose control of his entire Administration and he’d get nowhere. So he ought to be leaving our guns alone. He didn’t do any of this or talk tough when “Gabby” was shot by that leftist nut dope head. And he didn’t do anything when Aurora Colorado took place when that guy shot up the theater. But I guess it was when kids get killed and not the other way around because since he’s been in office kids have shot teachers and no one was talking about taking our guns away.

    And I need to check the internet for new news on Newtown and see what’s going on.

The so called “assaut rifle” ( I prefer Modern Sporting Rifle, there is no such critter as a civilian Assault Rifle) is unjustly being villainized by the lame stream media. They keep saying to remove them before more kids are killed. The MSR being used at Sandy Hook a media lie and they know it. 4 pistols were used according to the new report and the MSR, if it was an MSR, was in the car. But, the media nor the socialist democrats will ever report that. They are like sharks in a feeding frenzy. News media that make the most noise about gun control draw more liberal viewers wh in turn become more uneducated as to the real issues. All they hear is how bad, how dangerous, how deadly the MSR is and how gun owners are all potential killers. The social-democrats are not interested in knowing the facts either. They are only interested in getting their name heard by the liberal voters.

  • DAMPhotog

    Sure, you can have a gun but we will keep it for you. You can use it when we say you can use it. Of course you’ll have to pass a background check and mental health check. Do politicians have to do that? Why no, that would be an invasion of our privacy and just plain crazy to expect us to do the same as you ordinary citizens. And we’ll tax the ammo to a point where only the upper-middle class or wealthy can afford it… Oh, those people who are poor and have to live in places where high crime exists, they don’t have anything worth stealing so they shouldn’t need a gun or ammo for protection so this won’t effect them. And besides, they couldn’t afford the necessary liability insurance anyway… unless we tax the rich more and create a government benefit to cover it.

    I think it’s really great to FINALLY see a true American patriot STAND UP against the gun pushers and propose some common sense legislation to close the loopholes in the state’s gun safety laws!

  • Allhaileris

    There are now 220 million people living in the U.S., and over 270 million guns. Despite this, there were only 8583 murders committed in 2011 (most recent year for stats) with all types of firearms combined. A paltry 323 of these were with all types of rifles combined. More than twice as many people are killed with punches and kicks each year than are killed with all rifles combined. There IS NO gun murder crisis. Violent crime has been declining for nearly 20 years.

    10,136 people were killed by drunk drivers…18% MORE than ALL murders with Alll types of firearms combined. If you believe banning the means of killing can save lives, then it only makes sense that you would support an alcohol ban. All alcohol can be stored in government approved facilities and doled out only to those who can prove they don’t have issues with alcohol. Since so many more people are killed by alcohol than guns, there is potential to save many more lives that can be saved by banning guns.

    Thank you for your interest in the topic of gun safety. And thanks to those who took an interest in the message I posted. I regret to inform you that I am declining your invitation to move to another country. Those countries you mentioned already have sensible gun laws with higher safety standards than America, so there’s no reason for me to move there. Plus, the White House dismissed a similar demand recently calling for Piers Morgan to be deported for his support of sensible gun safety legislation, and calmly stated that “when discussing the 2nd amendment, remember to keep in mind the 1st amendment”. Therefore I will also dismiss your suggestions that I move to another country. Also, your use of cleverly mispelled profanity, all caps lettering, and excessive exclamation points will not scare me into cowering from my support of sensible gun safety laws. In fact, it only shows the weakness of your position, just as Alex Jones’ out of control rampage did on the Piers Morgan show. I am now more determined than ever to continue the fight for a safer America for my children AND your children. Thank you.

    Well, once again, I’m not at all impressed with your use of excessive exclamation points and all caps lettering. And I can easily dismiss your childish name calling, AGAIN. I don’t even know why you do it. Are gun pushers impressed by that kind of talk?

    You’re right. I don’t like this country. I LOVE this country! Not only did I make my fortune here, but despite my success, the American people were still generous enough to subsidize my vacation/retirement home in Israel. It gave my mother a place to live when she made Aliyah, and it’s comforting to know I’ll have a home waiting for me when I make Aliyah. So while I’m here, I feel it’s my duty to do my part to help make America a safer place for everyone to live, especially the children. Anytime I see new laws being proposed to enhance gun safety in America, I will do everything in my power to support it, no matter how long it takes. Thank you.

  • David Goldberg

    When the second amendment was ratified, I believe the firearm of choice was the musket. Since none of the currently proposed gun safety legislation bans the musket, I’d say your 2nd amendment rights remain just as intact as they were when the amendment was written. Back then, you couldn’t walk into a classroom of children single handedly kill 26 people in a matter of seconds with rapid fire, and you shouldn’t be able to do it now.

    Unless we accept small measures of victory. There is Israel, for us at least. What no other generation had, we have. We have Israel in spite of all the dangers, the threats and the wars, we have Israel. We can go to Jerusalem. Generations and generations could not and we can. In my time, anyone could beat up a Jew with impunity. We were beaten up twice a year. If a Jew was killed in a pogrom, who cared? Today it’s not that easy. Again the paradox. We never had better conditions, not even two thousand years ago in the time of the Temple. At the same time, we have the weight of memories—visions of horror.

Our weapons are FAR more powerful and deadly than the authors of the 2nd amendment could have ever imagined. We live in a new and completely different world now and we need laws that serve our needs in the time we are living in now, NOT in the distant past.

    The govt is the greatest threat to our & our children’s safety that exists. Let’s admit what’s right before our eyes.

    The 2nd amendment is outdated, obsolete, and no longer serves the purpose it served during the time of the American Revolutionary War. For all you fanatical gun pushers still living in the past, allow me to update you on current events. The British aren’t coming anymore, the Indians aren’t attacking anymore, and we have the most powerful military organization in the world and all volunteer force, a well established police force, and plenty of private security contractors. Our weapons are FAR more powerful and deadly than the authors of the 2nd amendment could have ever imagined. We live in a new and completely different world now and we need laws that serve our needs in the time we are living in now, NOT in the distant past. How many more children have to die before you gun pushers stop selfishly clinging to a 230 year old law that’s now getting innocent people killed?

    WOW, you really ARE a hypocritical narcissistic, self absorbed, MORON, who EOMPLETELY REFUSES to ADDRESS ANY of the POINTS I MADE, but instead THROW OUT TOTALLY UNRELATED SELF PROMOTED FAIRY TALES FROM NOWHERE, FROM YOUR GUARDED IVORY TOWER!!!!! WHAT A REPUGNANT SELF RIGHTEOUS FASCIST!!!

    Hey Goldyberg, I bet you love Klanned Parenthood too:
    http://www.klannedparenthood.com/History_of_Abortion_Statistics/. Is your real name Dr. Death? Are you a Nazi, a kapo Nazi? You sound like one trying to disarm us all. The very argument you give about the current strength of the military, security forces and so forth are all the reasons for Americans to have even more powerful firearms than they currently have. Hey putzy, where was your Hussein as in BHO when Fast & Furious occured, Benghazi, the Sahara, … ? Hussein want to disarm us all and is declaring jihad on America and you are a putz jihadist tool.

    Someone needs to tell this bonehead and all the idiot liberals that “assault weapons” were banned decades ago. Weapons capable of full automatic fire are “military style assault weapons” not the ones that are semi-auto (one round fired per trigger pull). George Washington was right when he said a government that does not trust its citizens with guns is a government with evil plans. I am tired of insane liberals. We should round THEM up and put them in the FEMA camps for OUR protection from their insane liberal ideology. Left up to them the only guns we would be allowed to have would be single shot ones that you had to reload every time.

    No guns will create an atmosphere of cowed indifference towards preservation of self and others in the face of existential threats posed by criminals and terrorists.
    No guns, if implemented, will not only give criminals and terrorists enormous psychological advantages over innocents but it will do so with entirely deadly consequences.
    The obvious. No way. http://spectator.org/archives/2013/01/11/in-the-absence-of-guns

    Then again what criminal follows the law? They could own one and dare use it on someone else and what? This administration is just all around fishy. Prevent more suicides? Oh yes because the only way to successfully kill yourself is with a gun? Shooting sprees? Last time I check the nut jobs are the ones involved in it. I will never give up my riffle. Come in my house & their will be no warning shot. Ammunition is too expensive. Simple as that. This is a bunch of crap. This guy is no good for our country. Has nothing to do with race but everyone will see his real side. This isn’t about gun control, it’s the lack of value our people have for the value of life.

  • O2BNTEXAS

    Don’t get you shorts in a knot. Nobody in this country owns an assault rifle. An AR-15 is legally defined as a SEMI-AUTOMATIC rifle! Unless you smuggled one in from somewhere else or got it from Holder your fine. Relax. I can’t wait for the Supreme Court to slap these fools around…lawsuits pending, I’m sure.

  • Rocco Giuliano

    Linsky wants to give police access to our medical records? Sergeant Friendly is going to decide if we’re sane enough to have a gun? How many combat vets will seek help for PTSD issues if this BS goes through? How many executive secretaries will admit to having mild depression? What responsible parent will have their kid evaluated for OCD? And what will be the consequence of all that UNTREATED emotional distress?

    I propose a bill that would require those running for office to undergo mental health checks and read and understand the constitution

    I shall not and will not cooperate any further with the government on firearms control. If any form of confiscation of disguised confiscation takes place I shall view as an illegal act and an act of war against my rights.

    That being said however, I know that any legislation of this nature passed by the congress is simply my death warrant. But really, besides myself, how many others are willing to die for this right? There are big talkers everywhere but in the cold 3 Am when the door is kicked in how many will really fight to the death? Few if any I suspect. The government is counting on this. Not many people have faced death or really have thought about it. I have many times when I was younger and even later in life. I am an ex soldier beginning the winter of my life so death holds less terror for me.

  • Man who never was

    I shall not cooperate any further with the government on firearms control. If any form of confiscation or disguised confiscation takes place I shall view it as an illegal act of war against my rights and the rights of a free people.

    Any blood that is shed will be on the hands of government bent on repression. Noting Ruby Ridge and Waco I think blood shed is very likely if people resist.

  • Rocco Giuliano

    Right now, the NICS system is supposed to include people who have been adjudicated mentally incompetent or involuntarily committed. Many states do not comply with these reporting requirements and, of course, they should. But what Linsky is proposing is that applicants for gun permits sign a waiver authorizing police to access their mental health records. This would create a major disincentive to help-seeking for mental issues, resulting in more alienated loners self-medicating with alcohol while locked in their basements playing first-person-shooter video games. There is no point in making mental health resources more readily available while stigmatizing the combat vet with PTSD, the mildly depressed college student, or someone with a biologically-based condition like OCD as a dangerous lunatic. People who voluntarily seek counseling tend to be among the most self-aware and stable segments of the population.
