Most of the anti-
gun-rights crowd insists we need MORE and BETTER background checks. Because, after all, the background checks currently foisted upon us by the BATFE (aka NICS checks) are so accurate and efficient!
We will admit background checks are a joke. Mass shooters Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech), James Holmes (Aurora), Jared Loughner (Tucson), Aaron Alexis (Navy Yard), Paul Ciancia (LAX airport) and Stephen Phillip Kazmierczak (Northern Illinois University) sailed through them.

So, if we pass just one more law…
Haven’t they said that for 90 years, now? Just one more…
Yeah, THAT’S the ticket!
And personally, I
dislike HATE having my rights filtered! With the very small exceptions of libel, slander, and yelling fire in a crowded theater (or “Hi Jack!” in an airport) people can say pretty much anything they want. And aren’t Mein Kampf and Das Kapital hate speech? Where are the controls on the First Amendment? OH, that’s right! The Left LOVES the First Amendment.
Unless it violates political correctness.
