There is a clown named Dan Simpson, who thinks

he has the solution to our violence problems:
Hunters' needs can easily be accommodated. They can deposit their weapons in an armory, to be reissued each season. NRA officials can choose the armory supervisors if they'd like, or if they are concerned at government oversight.

As for home protection, this too can be assured, respecting the rights of the individual without danger to the population. Each household can possess firearms, but they must be registered with the local police. The registration would be valid for one year and renewable on an annual basis. The occasion of the renewal would be the point at which the police or an independent body, again chosen by NRA officials if they'd like, would determine if a person with weapons still had all his marbles.

Collectors could have as many guns as they'd like, but they would have to be rendered unfireable. People would be free to stay gun nuts if they wanted, but Americans would be safe from nuts with guns, as they are not now, as has been so clearly demonstrated.
Yeah, THAT'S how to deal with a basic enumerated right, one that he doesn't like. Oh, he's already convicted Zimmerman, too:
Laws like Florida's "Stand Your Ground," which may lead to the unpunished killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Walker, are a true abomination. I would not want to go outside at night where a wide-eyed enforcer of his own idea of public morality was wandering around with a gun.
As opposed to a wild-eyed enforcer of his own idea of public morality wanting people put in prison if they don't exercise their rights in his approved fashion?

That name rang a bell, ran across this the other day; it appears that Simpson decided to tone down his previous idea on how to control the peasants:
“The disarmament process would begin after the initial three-month amnesty. Special squads of police would be formed and trained to carry out the work. Then, on a random basis to permit no advance warning, city blocks and stretches of suburban and rural areas would be cordoned off and searches carried out in every business, dwelling, and empty building. All firearms would be seized. The owners of weapons found in the searches would be prosecuted: $1,000 and one year in prison for each firearm.

Clearly, since such sweeps could not take place all across the country at the same time. But fairly quickly there would begin to be gun-swept, gun-free areas where there should be no firearms. If there were, those carrying them would be subject to quick confiscation and prosecution. On the streets it would be a question of stop-and-search of anyone, even grandma with her walker, with the same penalties for ‘carrying.’”
Yeah, he really doesn't like that 4th Amendment, does he? Or does he propose it be suspended by Executive fiat for the duration(which would probably be forever) of the proposed violations?

Amazing, isn't it? He doesn't like the 2nd Amendment, so his solution includes a Stasi to violate other rights; but it's ok, because He Knows What's Best For Us...

Would somebody PLEASE corner this bloody minded Simpson bastard somewhere, and carve a big swastika in his forehead, just so that we can see his true colors at a glance?
