Sarah Palin Calls Obama A "Special Kind Of Stupid"

Sarah Palin Calls Obama A

Yet it's also the sort of weapon that folks in the countryside now use to kill coyotes. The ban only applied to weapons manufactured after the date of the ban's enactment, and it expired in September 2004.

They ended their speeches before dawn, citing a Republican pledge to hold votes soon on measures to expand background checks on gun buyers and to prevent people on US terrorism watch lists from buying guns.

Former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) on Friday derided President Obama for pushing for more gun control after the mass shooting in Orlando. They, too, could get guns easily and the last thing we need is a precedent of denying rights because of a government list. Some use them as hunting rifles.

You ignore Chicago's more than 1,650 gun violence victims as reported June 14, with 282 deaths so far this year. We also need to be vigilant about National Rifle Association-type extremism that allows guns to be sold without background checks.

There's certainly good reason to question the freedom to purchase assault weapons.

As President Obama has said, albeit in a different context, this is a nation of immigrants. "They've been called 'the ideal killing machines.' They fire bullets at incredible speed that rip through bodies and cause devastating carnage, and can accommodate high-capacity magazines that allow them to effectively shoot up to 45 rounds per minute". Richard Burr and Thom Tillis have consistently voted that everyone is entitled to own unlimited weaponry, and they should be able to bring their weapons anywhere. In contrast, assault weapons are semiautomatic, meaning that kind of gun automatically reloads so the shooter can launch multiple shots much more quickly.

Take the unquantifiably large number of people who used this tragedy to call for a ban on "automatic weapons".

Mateen used a Sig Sauer MCX as his main weapon in Orlando a week ago.

Just prohibit citizens from obtaining assault rifles.

From 1993 until today, gun homicides in America have dropped by half. Why? "Their goal: a firearm that's as quiet as an MP5, as deadly as an AK-47, and more modular than anything ever designed".

The left needs to acknowledge that making it harder to buy guns won't stop gun violence. Every year, approximately 12,000 people are killed.

Cord Byrd, a Florida attorney who specializes in Florida gun law, said that is the real problem.

Despite the carnage, despite the proven risks, despite the consequences of having free and open access to weapons proven to be lethal efficient machines with seemingly no limit to the destruction they wreak except the imaginations of their psychotic owners, there are no reasonable expectations that anything will happen which might disrupt the flow of these devices to trigger-happy killers.

We can't prevent every gun death any more than we can prevent every auto accident, and the challenge is particularly acute with homegrown terrorists like the one in Orlando.

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo doesn't think so, which is why he pushed the SAFE Act into law in 2013.

Whenever this president speaks of guns, people rush out to retailers before new laws get in the way.

"Orlando is the latest sad reminder that Washington must act to keep these unsafe weapons out of the hands of madmen once and for all", Azzopardi added.

On Wednesday, Trump tweeted that he "will be meeting with the NRA, who has endorsed me, about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no-fly list, to buy guns".

In the article Palin linked to, it's clear the president is talking to lawmakers and lobbyists and makes no comparison between the Orlando shooter and "law-abiding gun owners". "This was an act of terrorism against America!"

And, three, Congress should close off the gun show and online purchase loopholes. There's simply no political will to ban a weapon that so many people now own nationwide.

"Hopefully, the Republican leaders are going to give us a vote". That's something Democrats are calling for.

"It's not that we're not strong enough to make the fight", she told her colleagues last week, according to Politico.
