    No, not shocking at all.

    This nation has had tax cheats head up the Treasury Dept, swindlers chair the House Financial Services Committee, and frauds direct the House Ways and Means Committee. Our Justice Dept. helped Mexican cartels acquire illegally transferred firearms that were used in the death of a multitude of innocent people.

    Criminals ARE running the government.

    The very first legislation requiring a permit to possess a handgun was sponsored by Big Tim Sullivan in New York in 1911.

    Gun control history, from the very beginning, is about protecting the criminal and the government from law abiding citizens. Gun control has nothing to do with guns and everything to do with control.

    This is not only untrue it is illogical. Being a Republican does not equal being a criminal and a criminal is not the same thing as the government. Weird post you made there.

    Because she's a politician...her job is to be a lying deceitful a-hole. Why do you even need to be a law abiding citizen to own a firearm, not just a citizen? Say that a tyrannical government does happen, we're all going to be labeled as criminals anyways, so let's try and keep it down on the "law abiding part", the constitution applies to everyone equally, even those with a past of mental illness and/or criminal background.

    Sounds good to me!

    99% of the [email protected] my ears hear and my eyes read every day is coming from somebody trying to lie to, steal from or cheat me..... I can do with less of that.

    My personal belief is that if you did psychological screening of every elected or appointed official in Washington DC, you'd find a density of sociopaths on par with the worst estimates for American prisons, they're just higher functioning sociopaths. I also believe the same would hold true at other levels of government.

    For the particular scumbag in question, I'm pretty alarmed by the fact that of her two arrests the second one for shop lifting occurred when she was 37 years old. In my professional experience, if you're still doing petty crimes like that at that sort of age you either have mental health issues or are an aging junkie. Or both, I suppose.

    I think you are 100% right...we have the rare ones who actually care like Elizabeth Warren, but I don't think many are there to do their jobs, they just want to get out and get paid by the lobbyists imo. In fact I wouldn't be suprised at how many of them probably have criminal records, I'm going to guess at least 50% of them do.

    Wow, because that's not a stretch at all. :rolleyes: Fact is some crimes are worse than others. Serial offenders are worse than one time offenders. As he said, and he's right, most folks here on THR aren't squeaky clean themselves. They may not be holding public office but many of them are in charge of something, somewhere. That alone doesn't make or break them.

    While I don't prefer people holding office with a prior record from decades ago, that does not necessarily mean they are incapable of holding office because of that. Could it, certainly. It's not like politicians without records are much better though.

    The anti's spin on your statement went a lot like this: "You think it's fine for someone with (depression, PTSD, insert any type of medical here) to have control of a gun? I think that's insane."

    Most of us are not clean in some way just like she is. We need to be careful who we persecute.

    Well, they always said criminals don't want victims to have guns.


    This really makes my blood boil. Should never have elected her so it is their own fault. I am shocked it did not come out during the election, but some state elections are short on cash and background checking.

    Miller, Larcany is very serious and is a crime of dishonesty and fraud.

    The 2nd ammendment guarantees the right to a gun though, it doesn't guarantee a right to run for political office. That is where your analogy is kind of flawed...

    There was a Denver Post article saying she blamed her arrests on being married to a drug addict ("I had to do it to feed my kids"). I'm guessing she was using, too, but at a low enough level she managed to avoid drug arrests and other clear indicators.

    In Colorado we have the right to a "Ballot Initiative" meaning if you can get enough signatures you can get it put on the ballot in the next general election. I think I will propose one that simply says that if you cant pass a background check to buy a firearm, you can not hold public office, elected or appointed. Oh, and make it retroactice by the way. :cuss:
