I do think that and... it is the largest selling rifle in the U.S.

Without looking it up, can you explain what it is?

Because it is the best tool for shooting up schools and churches.

What's YOUR problem with the Constitution? Are you defending things that go against the Constitution?


Nowhere in the Constitution does it mandate types of arms to bear, therefore, there is nothing in the Constitution that gives citizens the right to own high-powered military weapons, such as the AR-15, in the same principle that citizens cannot own bombs and bazookas. Citing the Constitution as the reason why citizens can and should own AR-15s doesn't hold any water.


Actually, there is a provision in the main body of the Constitution that allows citizens to own what is used by the armed forces.
There also is nothing in the Constitution that says the people cannot own any arms they wish.
Plus, the AR-15 is not a military weapon. It is a civilian (semi-auto) weapon which was then developed for military use in combat situation (full auto and later 3 round burst).
Finally, If you pass the background checks, and have enough money, you can purchase almost anything the military uses, and not just the US.
Do a Google search for these items for sale, the MA-2, BAR, Sherman tank, M48 tank, bazooka, recoiless rifle,
AK-47, full auto firearms, Minuteman missiles (yes, you can buy one), warplanes such as the A-4, the F-4, F-5, F-20, Migs, Harriers, you name it, it's for sale.

Last several times I went over this I posted links, but I'll let ya'll look it up from here on out.

Therein lies the dilemma; the knee jerk reaction of the Democratic party with this image that doing "something" (a 'ban') is better than doing nothing. As long as there is a 'Black market", banning weapons is just a band aid on an amputation.

Wake up.


If you think itís wise to sell AR-15s to anyone without a criminal record, then feel free.

You take any topic being discussed and turn it into ďits the Democrats.Ē Is that all you got?


First, why not. I would not sell one to someone WITH a criminal record.

Second, because in this instance, I haven't found any Republicans calling for forced gun confiscation such as ones proposed by several of the Democratic presidential candidates, one has said that she would use executive action to "enact" new gun laws.
Not to mention the plans of outrageous taxes on firearms and ammunition.

AGAIN, listen to your candidates.

Are you aware we ban tons of things? And sorry that I, nor the Democrats, can figure out how to stop the black market, lol. Can you? Or Trump? No civilization since the beginning of time has stopped it, wake up.


Since you just admitted that nothing can be done about the black market, why do keep wanting legislation that goes against the general public?

That's like creating legislation banning people from owning a car, except those who meet the criteria set up by the "elite legislators".

Because those are incredibly low standards to have for operating such a machine. I'm for giving any Joe w/out a record his basic pistol or shotgun, but such a weapon should be reserved for those who qualify through a process, and prove first that they are physically and mentally fit for one. It's the responsible thing to do, and that's all I really care about. We won't agree, and that's fine.

No, it's like allowing cars and trucks, but banning owning a tank.

Let me be clear, I don't care if a gun owner is slightly inconvenienced if they want to register to buy advanced weaponry. I don't think taking a few extra steps to own an AR-15 is infringing on any right, if you can always buy your pistol and shotgun at Walmart. And I believe less people would die in our mass shootings. To allow one's own irritation with a little extra work to get in the way of preventing less murders, is hard to comprehend.

Most recent email from Bernie..."new immigration plan - the most progressive ever" - oh boy!

quote:
Bernie Sandersí father came to America at 17 years old as a refugee, hoping to escape widespread anti-Semitism and to find a better life. He had no money and knew almost no English. He didnít have much of an education and no real skills. But he built a life for himself and his family through determination and hard work.

Millions of immigrant families in the United States today are doing the same thing. That is the story of Bernieís family and that is the story of America.

Today we released our immigration policy plan ó and it is the most progressive plan ever released by a presidential candidate.

Not only are we going to reverse ALL of Donald Trumpís harmful immigration policies on day one of Bernieís presidency, but we will transform immigration into a humane, lawful process that protects families and respects human rights.

We are asking you today if you can lend your name to say that you support Bernieís immigration plan, because every person who stands up in support will make clear that this is the kind of change needed to truly transform our country.

Add your name to say you support Bernieís immigration plan to support refugees, asylum-seekers, and families who come to the United States in search of the American Dream.

Donald Trump is a racist, a xenophobe, and a demagogue. He has tried, as all demagogues do, to divide us by demonizing immigrants and blaming them for societyís problems. He has used hateful and disgusting rhetoric to try to dehumanize an entire group of people, and he has used the power of the federal government to mistreat and terrorize immigrants at the border and in our communities.

That ends when Bernie is president. As president, Bernie will:

+ Use executive authority to reverse Trumpís harmful actions on immigration, including ensuring asylum seekers can make their claims in the United States, ending family detention and separation, reuniting families, reversing the Muslim ban and halting construction on Trumpís racist border wall.

+ Place a moratorium on deportations and end ICE raids.

+ Restore and expand DACA and use advance parole, parole in place, and hardship waivers to remove barriers to legal status and citizenship for as many undocumented immigrants as possible.

+ Push Congress to enact a fair, swift, and inclusive path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented people living in the United States.

+ Restructure the bloated, dysfunctional Department of Homeland Security, break up ICE and CBP and return their core functions to their previous departments, and begin treating immigration outside the context of national security.

+ Decriminalize and demilitarize the border, ensure migrants due process, and fully fund and staff independent immigration courts.

+ Strengthen and protect immigrant labor rights, including for historically excluded and underregulated occupations such as farmworkers and domestic workers, ensure employers are held accountable for mistreating immigrant workers, and reform work visas.

+ Renegotiate disastrous trade deals, develop a humane foreign policy, and lead the world in addressing climate change, including taking in those forced from their homes due to climate change.

+ Ensure immigrants in the United States get the support and benefits they need, including healthcare and education, and streamline immigration and naturalization.

We must stand up for our values and accept refugees, asylum-seekers, and families who come to the United States in search of the American Dream. This is how America was built and it has made our country strong.

Say you support Bernieís immigration plan ó add your name now.

Thank you for all you do.

In solidarity,

Team Bernie

Bloomberg considering a run...again?

quote:
Bloomberg makes preparations for 2020 run



By ALEX THOMPSON , ELENA SCHNEIDER and MARC CAPUTO

11/07/2019 05:38 PM EST

Updated: 11/07/2019 07:13 PM EST

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing to file paperwork to qualify for the Democratic presidential primary in Alabama, ahead of a Friday deadline. The move would be a first step toward a national campaign, though Bloomberg has not made a final decision to run.

"We now need to finish the job and ensure that Trump is defeated ó but Mike is increasingly concerned that the current field of candidates is not well positioned to do that," longtime Bloomberg aide Howard Wolfson said in an email. "If Mike runs he would offer a new choice to Democrats built on a unique record running Americaís biggest city, building a business from scratch and taking on some of Americaís toughest challenges as a high-impact philanthropist."

Bloomberg has engaged in a will-he-or-won't-he routine for over a decade about running for president, but declined to jump in each time. Earlier this year he was exploring a bid, only to bow out after former Vice President Joe Biden made clear he would run.

Story Continued Below

"I believe I would defeat Donald Trump in a general election," Bloomberg wrote in March. "But I am clear-eyed about the difficulty of winning the Democratic nomination in such a crowded field."

"He's tired of being the almost-ran," said one former Bloomberg adviser on Thursday after the New York Post reported news of his moves. "Mortality is weighing heavily on him. This is the last time that he can run."

Bloomberg will almost certainly not qualify for the next debate in Atlanta on Nov. 20 and he will likely have to spend tens of millions of dollars in the next few weeks to make the debate stage in December, potentially setting a record for campaign spending in a short amount of time. His current wealth is estimated at $52 billion, per Forbes.

Bloomberg and his money have the potential to scramble the Democratic field, where no clear frontrunner has emerged. He is most similar ideologically with candidates like Biden and South Bend (Ind.) Mayor Pete Buttigieg and could threaten their candidacies or divide their potential voters.



Asked why Bloomberg changed his mind and whether he was underwhelmed by Biden's performance on the trail, an aide said that "it's not about any one candidate." But the aide added: "He is worried about the state of the Democratic primary campaign and the possibility that we could lose in November. He wants to avoid that more than anything else."

Bloomberg's money also could further sharpen the existing divisions in the field between the left-wing, populist candidates and more moderate, pragmatic ones. While advisers to Biden and Buttigieg declined to comment on Bloomberg's entry, Warren's team and Sanders himself reacted with near glee at the potential contrast he would offer.

"More billionaires seeking more political power surely isn't the change American needs," said Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir. Sanders weighed in on Twitter, saying "[t]he billionaire class is scared and they should be scared."

Warren welcomed Bloomberg to the race on Twitter and linked to a page about her wealth tax, adding: "If you're looking for policy plans that will make a huge difference for working people and which are very popular, start here."

Democratic strategist and longtime Barack Obama aide David Axelrod said concerns about Biden clearly contributed to Bloomberg's change of heart.

ďThereís no question that Bloombergís calculus was that Biden was occupying a space, and the fact that heís getting in is a clear indication that heís not convinced Biden has the wherewithal to carry that torch," Axelrod said. "So yeah, I donít think this is a positive development for Joe Biden."

Bloomberg has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into Democratic causes in recent years, earning him goodwill among many progressive activists and especially those connected with climate change and gun control. His funding of the gun control advocacy group Moms Demand Action has given the left a powerful counter to the National Rifle Association. But Bloomberg, who ran as a Republican in his first mayoral bid in 2001 before becoming an independent and then a Democrat, also faces vulnerabilities on the left on criminal justice and the regulation of Wall Street.



Last year, he defended the stop-and-frisk policing tactics during his mayoralty as helping decrease the murder rate without violating civil rights. "I think people, the voters, want low crime,Ē Bloomberg told the New York Times. ďThey donít want kids to kill each other.Ē

He has also repeatedly criticized Warren's wealth tax proposal and suggested her policies toward the rich could lead the United States on a path to becoming Venezuela.

Bloomberg would be the second billionaire to make a late entry in the contest, after investor Tom Steyer jumped in over the summer. Steyer spent tens of millions in advertising to get on the debate stage but has failed to rise from the bottom of polls.

Longtime Democratic strategist Joe Trippi said it's possible Bloomberg could follow a similar trajectory. But Trippi said that he didn't think the former New York City mayor would enter the race without a realistic path to victory.

"I donít think Wolfson or those folks would do this if they havenít polled," Trippi said. "Itís not like they woke up and decided to do this. Iím sure they have data.Ē

Michael Nutter, the former Philadelphia mayor who wanted Bloomberg to run and then endorsed Biden, echoed that sentiment Thursday evening. ďHe doesnít make rash decisions. This is serious," Nutter said. "Bloomberg has his own serious record of achievement in politics, philanthropy and certainly business. Itís kind of a triple threat.Ē

Bloomberg's deep pockets may allow him to chart an unconventional path to the nomination that is less dependent on the early states of Iowa and New Hampshire. Candidates often rely on making a splash in those contests to gain momentum and raise more money, but Bloomberg will likely be able to stay in the race as long as he wants without such pressure.

ďItís tough in Iowa," said Matt Paul, who ran Hillary Clinton's caucus operation in the state in 2016. "Itís tough with 90 days away. If he does this, this is not going to be an Iowa-centered campaign. If he does this, this is going to be a very unorthodox campaign."

Steve Benjamin, the mayor of Columbia, South Carolina, sat next to Bloomberg at an event in Washington last month and came away with an inkling of what might come.

ďI sensed that he was still very interested in the race,Ē Benjamin said. ďI gave him the lay of the land in South Carolina ... He wanted to hear more about it.Ē

It doesnít just apply to players
You canít tell the field of Dem POTUS candidates w/out a scorecard either
Best of luck to the newest one, Mayor Bloomberg - if Alabamans vote for him it could give him momentum for the more familiar northern states
still think Hillary will throw her hat in the ring too at some point - as some of the Ďweaker sistersí end their campaigns

Maybe. I could see myself voting for him potentially.

Wasn't there some skeletons in the closet that came out earlier when he was rumored to be looking at running?

I suppose I feel like some other people....I can't vote for Trump, so I would like to try an find a candidate on the other side that I could vote for who is more in the mold of a moderate - or atleast not far left. And, perhaps like some people, the more I see and hear of Biden I'm just not very into it.

Totally agree. He most likely takes votes from the moderate wing leaving Bernie & Warren in better shape. That is not good because those 2 have views that need to evolve over years, and the country is not ready for those 2, and that only serves to benefit the Russian loving candidate with greater chance of being reelected. Bloomberg should be more strategic and help the party in other ways other than injecting himself into the mix.

2) The AR-15 is a semi-auto rifle, no different that a Glenfield Model 60, Mossberg 702, Remington 7400, Henry AR-7, and hundreds of other semi-auto rifles. I fervently hope you know the difference between semi-auto and full auto.
3) Walmart recently announced that certain stores will no longer carry firearms and ammunition. I haven't seen the list of what locations yet.


Look up and see how many, never mind, you probably wouldn't, so here are the 2017 figures from the FBI.
Rifles (Note: no breakdown on what type used) 403 murders
blunt objects-Clubs, hammers, and such 467 murders
Personal (hands, feet, fist, etc.) 692 murders
Knives (Again no breakdown) 1,591 murders

Wow, why aren't you out campaigning for the banning of knives since they are used in almost 400% more murders than rifles?
Should we go about cutting off feet, hands, and fists off everyone since they are used in 170% more murders than rifles?
What about baseball bats, clubs, hammers, tire irons, iron pipe, and other heavy objects than can be used in a murder.


Do you think people should undergo a psychiatric test before getting a drivers license? A car is a big dangerous item that causes more deaths than firearms every year, and some are murders.

3) Walmart recently announced that certain stores will no longer carry firearms and ammunition. I haven't seen the list of what locations yet.


Look up and see how many, never mind, you probably wouldn't, so here are the 2017 figures from the FBI.
Rifles (Note: no breakdown on what type used) 403 murders
blunt objects-Clubs, hammers, and such 467 murders
Personal (hands, feet, fist, etc.) 692 murders
Knives (Again no breakdown) 1,591 murders

Wow, why aren't you out campaigning for the banning of knives since they are used in almost 400% more murders than rifles?
Should we go about cutting off feet, hands, and fists off everyone since they are used in 170% more murders than rifles?
What about baseball bats, clubs, hammers, tire irons, iron pipe, and other heavy objects than can be used in a murder.


Do you think people should undergo a psychiatric test before getting a drivers license? A car is a big dangerous item that causes more deaths than firearms every year, and some are murders.



Stop using logic, it does not fit the narrative.


Their narrative doesn't fit anything, and their "facts" are quickly disproved, but---they keep using them, which is silly.
That makes me laugh at them.

Anybody seen BoytonBro? He still owes me 12 AR-15s.

Thatís about 3,000 murders...what about the other 30,000 plus that arenít mentioned? Why mention only a small portion of murders? Maybe you ought to post a link. And it doesnít even specify type of rifle! Good one Jerry!

Calm down. Show proof of your 400% bullsh*t, or stay at the kids table.

I posted an opinion, and you seem to have an issue with it. Youíve shown no stats, no links, nothing but your own narrative based on silly fictional stats. (I wonít hold my breath for a link to those stats).

If you think itís smart to sell them, be my guest, no need to get so defensive.

No one is taking all the guns away. Ever.

There continues to be zero realistic intention by any person of power to confiscate Americaís guns.

No one is taking all the guns away.

Ever.

Iím not down with all those bullet points, but some are worthy of discussion and have been for decades now.
