I Support Common Sense Laws

Beauty is only skin-deep, but ugly goes all the way to the bone.

Beauty is only skin-deep, but ugly goes all the way to the bone.

After lots of thought and reflection I have bravely decided to support common sense laws.

Wanted: Brave leaders to pass common-sense gun laws

There is no wondering why most Americans believe Congress is doing a bad job and its approval rating has bottomed to a dreadful 13 percent.

The Senate on Monday predictably rejected four partisan gun measures offered in the wake of the Orlando massacre, including proposals to keep guns out of the hands of people on terror watch lists. Lawmakers blocked these bills despite polling that shows 55 percent of Americans support stricter gun laws, 85 percent favor preventing people who are on the U.S. government’s terrorist watch list or no-fly list from owning guns and 92 percent favor expanding background checks on gun buyers.

With such a clear mandate, Congress should be able to come together and hammer out a proposal that respects and honors the will of the majority of Americans.

Instead, what we get time and again is more political posturing and inaction; Republicans blaming Democrats; Democrats blaming Republicans; rinse and repeat. All the while, an average of 91 Americans are being killed every day with guns, gun companies are raking in billions of dollars a year and terrorists continue to plot on how to destroy our way of life.

It’s past time for Congress to stop this insane song and dance. It’s time for Republicans and Democrats to set aside their political agendas, maneuvering and rhetoric for the good of our country.

The American people demand it, and they deserve it. They deserve common-sense gun laws that protect Americans from violent criminals and terrorists, and also preserve due process and the right to bear arms.

The politicians on Capitol Hill might have us believe those concepts are mutually exclusive. But most Americans are smart enough to recognize it’s not an either-or scenario. You absolutely can protect gun rights and take practical steps to make it tougher for guns to fall in the hands of terrorists or violent offenders. But that would require Republicans and Democrats to do something that has become taboo in Washington these days: compromise.

There’s not one member of Congress who believes that someone who presents a possible terrorist threat should be able to walk into a gun store or go online and legally purchase a firearm. That’s what is so frustrating and mind-numbing to so many Americans: that politicians can agree in principle but can’t reach a consensus because of partisanship.

I think everyone who isn’t a terrorist believes that terrorists shouldn’t be able to buy guns. I would go even farther and say that terrorists should not be allowed to even possess a firearm. That’s just common sense. That is no different than saying that felons should not possess guns.

The devil is (as usual) in the details.

In order to become a convicted felon you must be convicted of a felony. There are a number of due process protections provided to anyone accused of committing a felony. You can demand to see your own criminal history and you can challenge any errors or misinformation contained therein.

In order to get put on the terrorist watch list some government employee just has to put your name on it. They don’t have to tell you when they do it. They don’t have to tell you why they did it. They don’t even have to tell you if you are on the list. If you were to ask if your name is on the list you would probably get put on the list just for asking.

We should be very careful about enacting laws that would allow faceless bureaucrats to strip us of our constitutional rights without due process. That’s just common sense.

But while we’re passing new laws there are a few common sense laws I want to propose.

We should eliminate birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants.

We should screen immigrants the way we do college and job applicants. We should be very picky as to who we accept.

Immigrants who advocate things like “Make America Mexico” or who say “Fuck America” should be immediately deported.

Immigrants who break the law should be deported.

Immigrants who are unwilling to assimilate should be barred from entry/deported.

I’m gonna stop here because I just realized that if I try listing all the common sense laws we should pass I’ll never finish this post.

    This is the movie I am looking forward to this summer:

    • jeffhas says:

      Uh huh!

      … And at first when I heard the premise, I thought, “why?”… But after seeing the trailer these past few moths, I am ‘on board’! I may even go to the theater to see it!!!

    • Ann says:

      Yeah, that is high on Hubby’s list too, so we are going. He’s usually good for two movies a year, and in 2016 he’ll be going to at least five! (Deadpool, Captain America, Star Trek (for me), Jason Bourne and Suicide Squad for sure.) I hope he can survive the strain.😛

  2. Lulu says:

    Getting rid of “birthed in the US” citizenship would solve a myriad of problems. I personally don’t like dual-ies either but that is just me. If you have parents that are of different citizenships you should pick one by say age 25 and make a declaration that is binding for any stupid reason you want. And if you are raised in a third country maybe apply for citizenship of that one if you so choose. It should be an affirmative declaration if your parents are “citizens of the world” which I think is horseshit. The point is that globalism and globalist want to muddy the citizenship water until it means nothing and no one is loyal to a country, culture, etc but rather loyal to an ideology or corporation. If you are not a citizen you are in the US on sufferance and if you fuck up (in any way we don’t like) out you go and we don’t care where.

    • foxyladi14 says:


    • Jadzia says:

      Then I urge you to contact Congress and ask them to make it easier for dual citizens to renounce. Right now we’re being charged $2,350 to fill out a 2-page form and being subjected to waits of as long as 18 months to do it. And then we pay an exit tax based on the value of our worldwide assets. Even people who are American citizens on paper only and never did anything other than be born in America (and left at a very young age and never went back or otherwise interacted with America) have to go through this nonsense. I don’t know why the government is letting so many people in and then making it so incredibly difficult to let go the people who want to leave (which of course is a much smaller number).

      • Jadzia says:

        Seriously, it’s like the country version of Overly Attached Girlfriend. I know many people who have reluctantly renounced (some of them are military veterans) because of a kind of obscure banking regulation that is causing the banks over here to drop American clients like they’re on fire–folks who love America and would like to remain Americans, but also have to be able to do things like pay their mortgage and buy food, which you can’t really do without a bank account. Usually the reason for being abroad is like mine–married a foreign national.

      • mothy67 says:

        Off topic I know you are a GoTs fan so what did you think of “Bastard vs Bastard”. I thought it was one of the most intense things I had ever seen on TV.

        • Jadzia says:

          IT WAS SO AWESOME!!!!!! When I saw Ramsay on that chair I said to X, “Hey, I really have to go to the bathroom, but I will PEE ON THE COUCH before I miss a second of this!”

          • mothy67 says:

            I know and the way she walked away. The battle was also intense.

    Oh, you’ve got to be kidding. Pocahontas brings the donuts. Can’t make this up.

    Elizabeth Warren brings Dunkin’ Donuts to House Democrats’ sit-in, receives applause

    • DeniseVB says:

      LOL, and Warren’s on Hillary’s VP short list ? Well there’s another fatal peek into an HRC administration and more proof Trump was right about her bad judgment.

      As for the other leaked “favorites”, Booker and Kaine. Politically, Kaine from Purple Virginia would be her best choice. Warren and Booker are from safe blue states. Tim Kaine was an okay gov, but probably too moderate for Team Crooked Hillary. He’s also more experienced than she is.

    • mcnorman says:

      The GOP should bring the standard Brownies made with chocolate laxatives to their compadres on the other side.

  5. Venus says:

    Scott Adams posted the best explanation about the gun control debate that I’ve seen:

    But we do know that race and poverty are correlated. And we know that poverty and crime are correlated. And we know that race and political affiliation are correlated. Therefore, my team (Clinton) is more likely to use guns to shoot innocent people, whereas the other team (Trump) is more likely to use guns for sporting and defense.

    That’s a gross generalization. Obviously. Your town might be totally different.

    So it seems to me that gun control can’t be solved because Democrats are using guns to kill each other – and want it to stop – whereas Republicans are using guns to defend against Democrats. Psychologically, those are different risk profiles. And you can’t reconcile those interests, except on the margins. For example, both sides might agree that rocket launchers are a step too far. But Democrats are unlikely to talk Republicans out of gun ownership because it comes off as “Put down your gun so I can shoot you.”
    Let’s all take a deep breath and shake off the mental discomfort I just induced in half of my readers. You can quibble with my unsupported assumptions about gun use, but keep in mind that my point is about psychology and about big group averages. If Republicans think they need guns to protect against Democrats, that’s their reality. And if Democrats believe guns make the world more dangerous for themselves, that is their reality. And they can both be right. Your risk profile is different from mine.

    So let’s stop acting as if there is something like “common sense” gun control to be had if we all act reasonably. That’s not an option in this case because we all have different risk profiles when it comes to guns. My gun probably makes me safer, but perhaps yours makes you less safe. You can’t reconcile those interests.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Just stop selling guns to Democrats and gun crimes would drop 90%😀

    • Jadzia says:

      Not only is it the best explanation of the gun control debate I’ve ever seen, I think it’s the best thing he’s ever written (yep, usually he pisses me off). He really hit the nail on the head with that explanation, which kind of shows that gun control can’t be solved in the US not because of the big bad NRA or some monolithic group called “gun owners” but really the opposite: that within that big group of gun owners, you’ve got deep divisions and suspicions and fears and nobody wants to put down their arms first and that’s rational.

    Here’s the whole story of the sit-in. Lots of pictures, including Pocahontas sitting Indian style on the floor. This seems like a comedy, but it’s actually the U.S. House of Representatives. Help!


    • leslie says:

      Yet when a Republican filibusters against Obamacare or any other Dem supported bill or plan, they (Dems, MSM, etc) will call degrade the person and/or the act.
      Of course this and all the accompanying noise and bad behavior is okey-dokey because it’s the Democrats. 😠

  13. jeffhas says:

    When I hear the phrase, “common sense gun laws”… I wear it sounds just like, “comprehensive immigration reform”.

    It’s like some dream like candy I’m supposed to be hypnotized in wanting…

  14. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Everything not mandatory will be prohibited:

    The city of Austin is using sting operations to crack down on drivers working for unlicensed ride-hailing companies, issue fines and seize cars, authorities told the American-Statesman on Tuesday.

    The cars of four drivers for Arcade City, a peer-to-peer service that connects passengers with drivers through its Facebook page, were impounded Friday after the city’s Transportation Department conducted a sting.

    • swanspirit says:

      There is another side to that story of Uber in Austin. To drive a taxi, almost anywhere in the USA, requires a background check by the FBI, that includes fingerprinting, drug testing etc. etc. Also, the cab companies pay large annual fees to protect them from unlicensed hacks. Here in OC, it is $12,000 per cab per year.

      Evidently, they do more thorough background checks on taxi drivers than possible terrorist entering the country, but I digress.
      Uber background checks are perfunctory internet checks, and sometimes the driver is on the road before the report is in.
      Austin passed a law that required Uber drivers to have at least fingerprint checks, and Uber pulled out of Austin.
      I am thinking that it is possible these other “ride sharing” companies are not compliant with the city regs either.
      I know Uber is hurting the taxi biz here in OC very badly, and the cab companies are contemplating suing the city, because after paying those fees, they still have no protection.

    HE needs armed protection, but YOU don’t.

      • CiscoKid says:

        You’re braver than me watching news.
        Last night every local tv station in town took to beating up on Trump and protecting Hillary.

        • mothy67 says:

          How does Trump combat that? When he was here I checked local news websites only one of the three big ones had any mention and the CBS affiliate actually had Hillary to revisit area. Nada about Trump who was actually here. I cannot watch local news. I swear there is a child abuse case everyday.

          • CiscoKid says:

            I believe that’s why there are attempts to control/censor the internet.
            When conversations with friends/family turn to politics and I mention something I’ve read on various blogs the response always seems to be, “where did you hear that”?
            ” There was nothing on the news about that ”
            Yep, nothing.

    And besides, his name is Blum, so the media can’t find any connection either, because their names are different, or something. Not that anyone was looking.

    your personal experience does make a difference in your thinking

    I was pregnant with my son and my husband and i went to see a friend who was moonlighting as a bartender. A woman came in crying saying her husband was attacking her. Our friend went to the phone and called police. While he was on the phone the husband came and was trying to get in the bar. My husband and our friend’s brother held the door closed to keep him out. They were yelling get down he has a gun. He shot through the window and hit our friend. Lucky our friend lived but he lost his job as a fireman. Have you ever tried to “hit the floor when you are 7 months pregnant?” it ain’t easy. Yes I wish someone had had a gun to stop the gunman. He was a prison guard and got a $1.00 bail and never did go to jail for the shooting

    U.S. authorities are investigating an illegal immigrant smuggling operation allegedly run by active duty military soldiers out of the Ft. Bliss U.S. Army post in El Paso, Texas. Ft. Bliss is headquarters for El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC), a federal tactical operational intelligence center.

    According to sources and documents, two U.S. soldiers, Marco Antonio Nava, Jr. and Joseph Cleveland, were arrested last Saturday by border patrol officers at Falfurias, Texas Border Patrol Station Checkpoint attempting to smuggle two Mexican citizens into the U.S. The Mexicans were riding in the back seat of the car. Upon their arrest, the soldiers, who were not in uniform at the time, informed Border Patrol agents they are part of the 377 TC Company at Ft. Bliss.
