Re: “Gun Purchase Waiting Period Bill Faces Key Vote Friday

knowyourassumptions:

Not surprisingly, you missed the point (possibly on purpose but I am unwilling to concede that you are that sentient):
New Zealand TODAY has gun control laws in place that are far more restrictive then those in almost every state in the U.S. (restrictions which did virtually nothing to deter the mosque terrorist.) Yet you and your ideological compadres ("gosh-I-need-to-do-something-so-I-can-feel-good-about-myself-as-a-life-member-of-the-virtue-signaling-club") would like to further restrict the 2nd amendment rights of law-abiding citizens (and legal permanent residents) here in the U.S. Like so many elitists, staying in your own lane is a real challenge.

In new zealand, people first have to obtain a license to legally purchase, own, and possess a gun. A license applicant is vetted to check for a criminal record, a history of violence, drug and alcohol use, and relationships with potentially dangerous people, among other factors. The applicant also must go through a firearms safety course. That all typically takes months to get through. Once a person makes it through the process, hes allowed to purchase guns and ammo although some types of firearms, like handguns and certain semiautomatic rifles, require endorsements from police and separate permits to purchase. There are also extra storage and inspection requirements. The licenses have to be renewed every 10 years, and police can revoke a persons license if that person is believed to no longer be fit for ownership and may pose a threat. Gun sellers are also licensed and regulated by police.

Re: “Gun Purchase Waiting Period Bill Faces Key Vote Friday

The self-important poohbahs Baruth and Ashe are insufferable naieve elitists. Nowhere were gun laws more restrictive in a modern democratic republic than New Zealand and, predictably, those restrictions tragicallly served only to render law-abiding citizens defenseless when a lunatic psychopathic terrorist decided to massacre innocent worshipers in a mosque. Our 2nd amendment is NOT about hunting; it is there only to ensure a well-armed populace is prepared to thwart tyranny. As Dylan Thomas once observed: Neath the breast of every fuzzy-headed do-gooder beats the heart of a tyrant.

Re: “Scott Signs Bill Limiting Trump’s Immigration Executive Orders

Scott has become an embarrassing and shameless sellout pandering to the left and the progs desperate for their support when he seeks re-election. It wont work Phil. They always turn on you. For them you are merely a useful idiot. SEE: Robespierre

Re: “State Revokes Burlington Guidance Director's License

This decision MUST be a horrifying miscarriage of justice! Did this clearly biased state panel fail to note that the Burlington School Superintendent AND the Burlington H.S. Principal have both continued to support Macias and found no evidence that warranted his suspension? I mean, you cant find two more reliable and competent leaders than those two fellas.

Re: “Immigration Dispute Leads Feds to Withhold $2 Million in Grants From Vermont Police

Vermont officials determining which federal immigration laws they will ignore is kinda like the catholic diocese refusal to notify the cops about its pedophile priests.
