Emails from Iraq: October 10, 2006 by Jayel Aheram
' So I am nuts but legally sane?
Yes, there are too many of you, sociopaths, so a decision was made to consider people like you legally sane or otherwise we would not be able to convict anyone'
From the movie about two Boston cousins - killers
Obviously, it does not matter if I support this Bill or not; the witches' cauldron is full and the infamous Potomac two -step is arranged. Senator K. Gillibrand comes out on Boring Joe's and tells us what people want:
People do not want guns in the hands of the mentally ill (here she stumbled for a moment and then corrected that to ' violent mentally ill.').
People do not want guns to fall into the hands of criminals (here she stumbled again and said 'violent criminals').
So now we know. If a person decides to buy a gun, say when he/she is 21 years' old and does not have ANY record of ANY violent confrontation, also could open his/her records on taking ADD drugs- that person will be able to get a Bushmaster easy. An adult who had some bar brawls, who maybe had some misdemeanors and is a former police officer on the beat where he attended the psychiatrist most likely will not be able to get even a shotgun. Moreover, the cost of the background check will be passed to the consumer and a person first will have to give permission to disclose his/her medical records to total strangers, then pay for the check and then.. maybe still not get the product for his/her money. Of course, there should be an appeal process, pay more, more, more... all for getting the freaking 38- - caliber; then the guy will lose his temper- and that will be put on his background record forever. Then he will go and buy the damned gun on a black market. As ammo purchases would not require a background check, a person with an illegal gun will still be able to buy as much bullets as he/she could carry. Only Washington could concoct such a nonsense.
And an evil nonsense too. Who will perform those checks? Some special agencies you do not know about? More intermediate people earning their dough on you? And when the check is done, what will they do with that info? Put it on the internet? How about sex offenders, rapists? How will they be qualified? How about abortionists? Abortion is a violent act, take it or leave it. So maybe we should include a provision that women who performed abortions should be prohibited from buying guns? Fairly soon the only people who would be able to buy a gun legally will be infants and toddlers. They could store those in the safe boxes until age 21 and buy maintenance.
Now to the serious business. Dick Cheney openly boasted that he and his cronies killed 400 birds in one day in a hunting carnage. That's nuts, ladies and gents. But I can bet no Bill will restrict people like Cheney from acquiring any weapon of choice. He is not even mentioned. Those sentimental ladies who are all pro- Bill do not talk about Cheney and Co.They do not talk about wars. They do not talk about severe mental problem of our current President who uses drones for target killings. They do ask Cindy Sheehan to come and talk about violence. They, those smiling harpies are ready to sell us all for nothing. They are on the prowl, they feel empowered and do not even see how nicely they are handled, how true, important issue of violence is diluted in something which will satisfy everyone and solve nothing.
Quite a revenue , I should say.
Now, someone will ask me, 'OK, but the kids were killed, how do we respond?' I will tell you. First we stop killing the kids in other places, prohibit drones and bring the violent criminals in power to justice. Then we offer universal health insurance for the children up to 18 years' old. Then we impose a rule that ALL violent scenes in the media and video games are to be shown only in black-and - white. Then we simply impose that ammo (not guns) is to be sold only in the government- controlled stores and to buy ammo a person has to show an ID and a registration for a gun. That simple. The ammo has to be restricted and buying in bulk must be justified. No background checks necessary
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. I do not have a gun. I don't think I need one. But I am not considering myself as an enlightened person because of this. And if I go buy one I want to do it on my terms- I pay money and I get the product. That simple. I realize that a gun is a weapon of death. Thus I suggest to control ammo - the actual agent of death. As an adult I should want such feature. But that is all. Violence is a much bigger problem and with all respect to the ladies- politicos- they did not help much when we killed and killed and killed. Their crocodile tears do not count. To the contrary- they should be ashamed of themselves; now they rave for the gun control but Cheney is still untouchable.
I leave no stone unturned here. Some readers could be upset with me but I would encourage them to look in the mirror and weigh my arguments above. We live in the country which had proven itself as lawless. As such we, sane people should not expect sane laws and Bills from the people who repeatedly proved themselves as violently insane. We should get rid of them first and only after that we will earn a right to shed a tear in Newtown, CT or Kandahar, Afghanistan. But Kandahar goes first.
