Skip to comments.Gun control policy ideas more than just talk
Posted on 12/22/2012 6:51:50 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Just one day after President Obama tapped Vice President Joe Biden to lead an initiative on gun violence, Jon Adler was at its first meeting, along with Cabinet secretaries and organizations representing law enforcement.
Not much lead time, but no matter: Adler, national president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Assn., had a list of policy changes from legislative to regulatory to "tactical" coordination at the ready, with granular detail. He cited, chapter and verse, the law that makes it a misdemeanor to knowingly possess a firearm in a school zone. He wanted that upgraded to a felony.
No shortage exists of policy ideas to reduce gun violence. Law enforcement groups, gun-safety advocates and other organizations weighing in on the firearms debate have churned out policy prescriptions for years. Most of the time, the recommendations have simply gathered dust. Now, in light of the Connecticut school shooting, advocates hope some of their proposals may become law.
New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg released a statement with his policy wish list less than an hour after Obama announced the Biden-led talks. In addition to shoring up the criminal background check system and introducing laws to ban assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, Bloomberg detailed immediate actions the president could take. Among them: ordering all federal agencies to send records to the national gun background check database...

We still haven’t heard if forensics identified Adam’s fingerprints on anything. For all anyone knows he was just a tool in a larger event.
So, I guess the Sandy Hook killer would have thought twice, knowing he could have been charged with a felony. Ridiculous!
They’re obviously “Preppers” - and preparing for the same eventuality the rest of us are - but doing it from a somewhat different angle . . .
Because you just know that the loon planning to murder a bunch of little kids in the school will change his mind once he knows it's a felony to take the gun onto school grounds as opposed to a misdemeanor.
These people are either flaming idiots or they want school shootings to happen more often.
I have a six year old son.
This pisses me off.
Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon... you know, cause I’ve worked in a lot of offices, and I tell you, people do that all the time.
A felony, you say? Well, had I known ...
Adler should have added that murder be upgraded to a Super Dupper Felony! WOW that’ll stop’em!
Biden group agrees..Inalienable rights are religion therefore
Inalienable Rights Are Unconstitutional
"Only human rights granted by government are Constitutional" said Biden. "The entire Constitution is unconstitutional. D'oh!.. I mean . . . ."
Generate laws so everyone is a criminal. Alinsky or Cloward-Piven, take your pick.
It wasn’t until after WWII that the Reichstag Fire was proven to be a fraud. If Hitler had won, nobody would have ever found out. And he had a plan of action- get that Enabling Act passed....
The purpose of the law is not to protect children, but to make it impossible for ordinary citizens to carry a gun in a regular way. 1,000 foot “school zones overlap in most cities and towns, making it impossible to move about without intersecting a “gun free school zone”. The law was ruled unconstitutional once, and should be repealed.
“That was quick, wasn’t it?”
Did you expect anything else, Patriot ? When the Reichstag burns, one must move quickly.
You’d think that would be an issue here......But when the Reichstag is burning, there’s no time for common sense.
False flag, without a doubt. If the Socialistocrats could write the perfect scenario for generating MAXIMUM outrage at guns, gun owners and gun ownership, this was it. Too perfect, if you ask me, all the way down to the destroyed hard drive.. And one month before 0bama’s second term begins, no less. A second term where numerous pundits predicted an 0bama gun grab.. VIOLA!
The gun ban demands of the 1990s ended when 19 Arabs with boxcutters slammed four airplanes into buildings and a field killing 3000 people.
Suddenly those who had no need for a military style rifle found maybe they may just need one after all.
Now the gun control bandwagon is slowly picking up speed again, led by the same fainthearts as the one in 1994.
How would that have prevented the Newtown massacre or how would it prevent a similar occurrence in the future?
Gun-free zones killing our kids!
Unlike the stupid party, leftists have EVERYTHING planned.
The scripts are planned well in advance. The media is prepped with talking points. The lefty politicians are prepped. Their sympathizers are all prepped and ready to go when the signal is sent.
Their Sandy Hook shooting response had been ready to go for some time. The theater shooting was not good enough. They needed kids. Perfect! Right before Christmas!
Their Traybon shooting response had been ready to go for some time. They needed a white guy. Someone named Zimmerman was just perfect. Oops! Didn't really want the Hispanic guy they got. Someone messed up and now they're stuck with Zimmerman.
The Virginia Tech killer was Asian and it is really difficult, from looking at his photo, discerning just exactly what Lanza is. He doesn't look human.
That is what is so maddening. It is obvious that the law wouldn’t work and is for curbing guns from law-abiding citizens. It certainly wouldn’t have stopped the Sandy Hook killer.
Where did that photo come from? It looks fake.
"The Russians don't take a dump without a plan, son"
It will be a Ft. Sumter moment.
You know it, Patriot!
I will NOT comply.
I’m guessing the photo in question is the one where the shooter’s head looks like a skull - wided eyed and very narrow mouth and chin, and very grainy black & white.
“He cited, chapter and verse, the law that makes it a misdemeanor to knowingly possess a firearm in a school zone. He wanted that upgraded to a felony. “
Yeah, that’ll fix the problem.
“where the shooters head looks like a skull”
Yes, that one.
Is that like double secret probation?
I have come to the conclusion there are no coincidences, none. This screwball was being coached or mind-controlled by the Soros gang. They failed at Fast and Furiious and they killed 20 innocent kids to push their Communist disarming agenda. It’s a means to an end, no God, no morals, no love of anything but unadulterated power.
Power to a Marxist is the only thing that matters, because no would ask to be poor, restricted in movement, no opportunity for a business and shoddy healthcare voluntarily.
These maggots adore Satan, and are using the Islamists as their soldiers along with their willing American and European Socialists/media who push the lie. Over and over. Gun control is to enable their long-term goals, not for safety, just the opposite.
I weep for those Newtown families. You can see that the Left has no conscience or soul, they will murder kids to gain power.
I just hope others can see this, too.
And of course that makes anyone driving past a school with signs "School Zone, speed limit 15 MPH" an automatic felon - or are we to trust they won't keep pushing the limits until we are helpless before them?
This area has no room for "compromise". The people we are dealing with are like Obozo "compromising" with Bonehead over the fiscal 'cliff" - they will accept nothing but total surrender and we must burn all the white flags...
Ditto for our home-grown Media/Leftist Complex.
I am predicting this spring there will be a 5 million strong fully armed Tea Party gathering in Washington DC.
obama will call out the military in fear.
An AR-15 was used exclusively. I don't know if this fits your definition of rifle but it is what he used.
If you ever suspected the anti-gun nuts were truly mentally ill, here it is ~ their reaction to the NRA proposal proves it.
We can no longer afford to treat them as if they are normal humans ~ they aren't! They are just like Holmes, Hassan, and all the other schizophrenics and crazoids who like to ambush unarmed people.
It was found in the car. Not in the school.
Nope. It was a shotgun found in the trunk of the car as this video clearly shows:
That's no AR-15.
The medical examiner also says the children were killed by .223 rounds. And the number of rounds fired attest to this. And, sadly, common sense also points to using the AR-15. Lanza was crazy but he wasn't stupid. If you were a deranged madman set on killing as many people as possible, would you leave your most effective weapon behind in the trunk of your car?
As much as I wish he didn't use an "assault" rifle, fact is he did. Denying this and/or trying to make this into some kind of conspriracy doesn't change things. Lanza used an AR-15 because he had one and because he wanted to kill everybody.
Maybe something like this:
Have you looked? It's all over the news. Lanza forced his way into the school with an AR-15, a Glock 10mm and a Sig Sauer 9mm. He killed the children with the AR-15 and shot himself with one of the handguns. The police have not released what handgun he used. The police found a shotgun in the trunk but have not released the details of make and model. In time, the police will release all the details of this crime.
I'm not making this stuff up.
Maybe something like this:
Lanza didn't use a Beretta .22LR. You seem to have issues accepting the truth?
The AR15 is not an assault rifle, and the universally identified “Bushmaster .223” used is basically an AR15.
