Of course they want licensing and bans and metal exams;

it's what they do.
For the second time this year, a self-identified Navy veteran yesterday proposed strict gun control measures including licensing, 80 hours of training for a concealed carry permit and an ammunition tax of ten cents per cartridge to pay for all of that, plus mental health screenings for gun owners every five years when their licenses are renewed.
And part of his reason for registration:
But VanDiver argues, “Before you tell me how I am violating your rights by proposing a record of gun owners, note that the constitution does not say that you have the right to bear arms and not tell anyone.”
"If it's not explicitly allowed, it is forbidden!  And the government must know what you have and what you do!"  Yeah, sounds like a socialist.  Say, the East German kind.

And from Connecticut:
Unsurprisingly, a report released Friday by the Connecticut Office of the Child Advocate prioritizes placing the blame for the “Shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School” on ownership of firearms, with particular emphasis on the semi-automatic kind that can accept standard capacity magazines.

Verdict came in in Missouri, officer not charged; usual suspects hardest hit.
Well, hardest except for the people whose businesses have been looted and/or burned, and the people unemployed because of it, and the people beaten.

Yeah, you stupid bastards, this is doing a LOT of good.

Speaking of stupid bastards, one of the reasons I seriously worry for American troops in Iraq and A'stan.  Again.  Because you know damn good and well that they'll be stuck with ROE just as stupid as this.  Because better dead/crippled/wounded US troops than someone have their outrage sparked.

Ten cents a round?

Uh huh.

(Though, I find the typo in the title amusing.

Metal exams!

If you can't name this Slayer song, you don't get a CWP.)

I've never understood the concept of "Rules of Engagement." As Patton said: "No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country." Any ROE beyond that puts our soldiers at risk. Fighting a war is like fighting any other bully. You either fight to win, or give up before you start.

2A says I have a right to keep and bear arms, 5A says I don't have to tell you or anyone else about it, and 4A says you're not allowed to snoop without a warrant. Got that?
