"You're planning bad things, I know it!

Why else would you buy one of those?"
Oh, target shooting, hunting, self-defense maybe.  Which of those do you consider the 'bad thing'?
“The fact is, the AR-15, the gun that (Omar) Mateen used, that’s a weapon of war; it’s advertised as being able do technologically advances in killing people that previous weapons have been unable to do and somebody who is buying that kind of a weapon isn’t buying it for target shooting,” she said.
Plus the standard "You don't use one to hunt deer!", etc.

It's nice when they demonstrate openly how ignorant they are, isn't it?

Pratt doesn't let MSNBC host get away with the usual crap, host doesn't like it.

A time I (mostly) agree with Vox, and it's on those idiot watch lists:
Under the proposal, people who have been under investigation at any time in the last five years for terrorism are placed under scrutiny, even if they’re not on the list. And the government doesn't appear to be scrupulously committed to pruning down the list itself. Being acquitted of terrorism charges or having those charges dismissed is actually cited as a reason to put someone on the watch list — not a reason to take him off.

In other words, the proposal is guaranteed to sweep up people who the government has already determined, for sure, don’t pose a threat — and return them to scrutiny all over again.
Overall, a good piece.

As the Lord High Executioner said in "The Mikado",
"I've got a little list, there'll be nobody missed."

I wonder how soon they expect to get every Republican on that list and work on determining who is voting against Democrats in the elections. They look on the election reports of third-world dictators with 102% or 104% of the electorate voting in favor of El Presidente with envy
