Sequoia, You would be incorrect again, I have killed an animals with one. Unfortunately, you have drank too much of Obamas Kool-Aid. Like so many liberals, they try to impose and make laws on topics they truly know very little about. First off, you have bought into the medias demonization of an inanimate object.... A semi-automatic rifle is harmless until it is put into the hands of a madman, which society has demonstrated lately.. And true to a liberals nature, it is easier to vilify the weapon than to address the REAL problem, which is the mental state in which the operator is in. Lanza and Holmes were both mental cases. Had it not been an Ar-15, it would have been another gun. Would you be so inclined to outlaw those weapons as well? Had those 2 nut jobs gone in with 12 gauges, would you outlaw them? A 12 gauge with 00 buck shot will do MUCH, MUCH more damage than an AR. Should we go after them as well? Because as soon you allow the "Assault rifle" to be banned, they will be next! And, you still have not addressed the real problem! My guess is that you are a parent who has watched too much TV since the shootings and is making decisions based on your heart and not your brain, like so many other liberals who know nothing about firearms. I do hope someday, with regards to firearms that you become educated as to what it is you are talking about and less inclined to make ignorant laws that will have no effect on the problem at hand. You like so many other individuals have become victim to media bias. I do however want you to know, that you are not alone, there are many others in America who would like to infringe on our 2nd amendment rights based on what a handful of crazy people have done.
You cannot let them have ANY kind of firearms. If you do, it will be large caliber rifles next. "Assault Rifles" is a misused term. They take MONTHS to clear a backround and are select fire weapons. What the media is calling an assault rifle is nothig more than a semi automatic rifle that is cosmetically the same as its Military counterpart. It is a SEMI-AUTO. And yes there is a need and a purpose for these weapons as well as high capacity mags. They are used for varmint hunting, competitions, etc. The media is portraying them to be the villain when in fact it is the user who is the villain . If you want to make a change, enforce the laws we already have! We dont need anymore... You cannot give in to the gun grabbers! They are basing their ideas on cosmetics and not facts.
Seqoia, You are a sheep that has bought in to the media hoopla.. And I will not surrender any firearms because you liberals think they are scary.
If you dont like "gang shootings", move out of the city. You dont restrict the rights of tax paying, law abiding citizens because a few knuckleheads in the inner city, shoot each other up as part of their "thug lifestyle". I support Rep Leara's measure all the way. The rest of the Constitution bashers in the legislature should be tried for treason against the Constitution.
Outstanding! Way to go Katie! Enjoy and be safe! We need more examples of young people like you.
The reason you State employees do not get wage increases is because the legislators spend your money on pet projects. Projects that pay campaign contributors and such.
No Dan, your wrong. I understand your feelings about being disadvantaged. First, you open an online branch of your business to cash in on this. Second, you petition your lawmakers to LOWER your existing taxes, not levy new ones. As soon as they figure out they they can tax interent sales they will be right back taxing you higher. New taxes is NOT the answer, your governemnt spending is. You need to talk to your officials to find out where your money is going.
