    Obama's Mexican Gunrunning Operation

    "Possible" and "Practical" hold very different meanings as it pertains to finite enforcement budgets. Ms. Ngyuen will be prosecuted, and maybe found guilty by her peers. But as it pertains to the spirit of a law as a deterent against such criminal violence, 2 firefighters are dead, and 4 other innocent persons shot.

    Obama's Mexican Gunrunning Operation

    According to the article, she was to be arraigned yesterday. Seems like she will most likely lose the case, especially in light of her lie about the guns being stolen. So a person being prosecuted and convicted for straw buying is evidence that the straw buying laws are unenforceable, just like the same thing happening to the Fast and Furious straw buyers and many others? The prosecutor says there is no evidence she suspected his intent, but she's still the example cited in calling for a new 25 year maximum sentence for those who do? She's facing up to ten years and a quarter million dollar fine. She probably won't get the maximum, but max sentences are rarely handed out in any kind of case, including firearms cases, because they are for the worst offenders. She is not one of those, despite what the other guy did with the guns. She'll do time and be fined, which is evidence of exactly the opposite of your claim: our laws are enforceable and are being enforced. ...and the spirit of the law, which is to prevent the gun from getting into the hands of those who should not have them, and innocent people are dead, because of unenforceable deterrents advocated by the gun lobby were put into place as a political expedient. Each year thousands of guns are purchased, then (either legally) sold to creeps or conveniently 'stolen' by criminals, and making everybody less safe. Yet any technology to track weapons, vehemently opposed by the gun lobby, and 2nd 'precious hobbyists'. Your answer? Buy a gun. The Law, in this case, and most others is practically, and selectively enforced because police, and the judiciate, set priorities with limited money. That generally does not result in the DA's office chasing paper straw men and windmills, (which, number in the tens of thousands). Yet Graham and is lame ilk, (including yourself), tacetly support these ineffective laws, and invoke blame-shifting to law enforcement, which ultimately, is a strategy to sell more guns. I find this shamefully disgusting. In the Webster NY case, it looks like the criminal actually went along with Ms. Ngyuen to pick out his favorite killing devices, just before they were "stolen" from her house. Even the staunchest NRA Drone cannot obfuscate-go-through-the necessary-mental-gymnastic-contortions to argue against the blame-shifting strategy credibily to convince any rational thinker to your position.

    ...alternatively, we can have highly paid lobbyists create practically unenforceable laws, pass them to GOP ninnies with a big check, to preserve the status quo, and blame-shift to law enforcement. http://youtu.be/KINQSpGFFo4

    More on the legal ineffectiveness of current gun regulation law and the 'distinction between a gun dealer, a private purchase and a strawman purchases'. (In other words, how the Gun Lobby contorts US law with loopholes protecting the status quo, subsequently blame-shifting back to 'enforcement'.) Gotta keep selling the precious....remember: the boogeyman is hiding in the bushes-I'll tell you one thing; he's not getting the TV set.

    Everywhere? Private citizen to private citizen, like in Arizona? Our laws distinguish between those involved in the business of selling weapons and those not involved in that business.

    Dow 9,000 - or less?

    I buy soap and doritos at Walmart, and am *RABID/nearly religious* about the origin of my purchases. The car is European. Family purchases are not always American, but generally EU or of NAFTA/America's in provenance. I buy produce locally. My most recent purchase? Johnston and Murphy and Ecco shoes, manufactured in Brazil and European country (forgot). I looked at Clarkes shoes, but they were all made in China, and were of inferior quality, style and design. Furniture is commissioned by local and regional artists. Not BS'ing you on any of this, BTW.

    Dow 9,000 - or less?

    Yeah, I can blame them. First, corporations have been sitting on hords of cash for about 2 decades. The strategy has been off-shoring (i.e. job-killing) and supplying cheap goods to drive the US retail economy. This is ultimately self-defeating. Re-purposed, the task of deriving corporate profits mostly from China's growth into the first world to sustain growth in the long-term is a promise built upon shifting and corruptable sands, especially if US consumers dont want to buy anything new, and are unemployed. The fact is that a higher percentage of cash across many parts of the corporate universe is being generated and maintained overseas, not out of fear of econiomic collapse but because 'the herd retardation mentality of Wall St. Banking parasites' who feel there is little opportunity for growth in the US, but ample opportunity and little correspondingly [totally misguided] minimal business risk, in China. The good news is that the worm is starting to turn a bit, numerous businesses recognizing the escalating costs and decline in confidence in China as a model system for numerous reasons. Good time to invest in basic, healthy American manufacturing instutions, in my estimation.

    Do you think that either party represents the interest of anyone but the rich? One is just more open and honest about it than the other. Mythology of the poor thinking they are middle class, American Dream, and trickle down/off-shoring job crap perpetuating the royal scam that allows me to essentially distill hard earned cash from those less fortunate than myself. Corporations are sitting on historic piles of cash, and actual unemployment is around 12%, whille all the time, we hitch our economic wagon to the success of a Communist rival. What a country.

    Imagine a sinister motive behind the return deposit program. IMAGINE it! I hear some Obama scammers are collecting bottles in NY and returning them using government property in Michigan for a 100% profit. The Postmaster General is covering this up!.

    Heller v. DC being heard today

    Inhibiting preparation to defend yourself is inhibiting your second amendment right to defend yourself, should the need arise. DC's purpose in erecting barriers to gun acquisition is to continue their unconstitutional gun ban closed registry by "opening" the registry in name only, not in fact. Keep fighting the good fight, Tom. It drives the discussion back to what Scalia said in the Heller decision, which is that the door remains open for the Supreme Court to address in a future case what limitations on Second Amendment rights are considered “permissible.” (Be careful what you wish for.)
