    McCarthy also gives us this gem. I'm waiting for the text - H.R. 1895. A bill to improve the tracking of stolen firearms and firearms used in a crime, to allow more frequent inspections of gun dealers to ensure compliance with Federal gun law, to enhance the penalties for gun trafficking, and for other purposes; to the Committee on the Judiciary.

    My current comments are not High Road. Not in the wildest imaginations of any of the great literary authors could they be attempted to be MADE High Road...

    All I'll say is my head just about did this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eU8joiS62js

    I don't expect the bill to go anywhere, but it is still important IMO for two reasons.

    1. Who cosponsors it?
    2. Could this lead to a compromise bill?

    Not sure that one would be entirely enforceable

    Even most Democrats think Kucinich is a big time loon.

    This bill will go nowhere and thats that.

    Besides would such a total prohibition bill hold up in courts?

    You'd think Kucinich would get cold, what with his wrapping himself in that there blood-soaked flag.

    Grandstanding putz.

    Justin, you are by far much kinder than I would ever be regarding Dennis "The Menace" Kook-cinich.

    He is not my rep, but I do work in Cleveland. He got elected to US Rep AFTER driving the City of Cleveland into financail ruin AKA Bankrupt. He was the Mayor of Cleveland for a while.

    The worst part is that people like that are ELECTED. A whole bunch of people think, "Hey, I agree with him!"

    Kucinich should not be allowed to serve ever again. When he is up for re-election? He can kiss his job good bye.

    And a whole bunch of people vote for creatures such as Kucinich under the rationalization "He is the lesser of the evils offered. At least he is not a Republican/Democrat." :banghead:

    I would not be overly surprised to see such a bill attached as a rider to some other MUST PASS peice of legislation, like funding for another year of government spending. Added in the dead of night and passed before anybody can read it.

    Sombody have some lumber? I need to build a grandstand here. :D

    Let's keep an eye on it but I think we'll be okay. Gun ownership in this country currently includes about 1/3 of the country and there are alot more out there who don't own guns but are glad that some of us do. Or at the very least believe in the constitution even if they aren't "gun people." Keep up the fight, we'll beat this one too.

    Thank GOD Kucinich continues to marginalize himself with this kind of kookery.

    If he had a half ounce of political savvy he'd probably get himself into a position where he could do some real damage.

    Nevermind on average more than 20 times as many die by the hands of their medical establishment. If 32 people per day is a "national crisis" what do you call over 600 a day?
