that's His Lordship, to you.....
So today the senate is supposed to vote on some "gun control" measures, including adding the "no fly" list to the NICS checks. Cornyn's bill requires the government, within 72 hours, to go to court to prove they're right, and the person in question should NOT be allowed to purchase a firearm. Now like any reasonable person, i have to assume that if there's something that prevents either party from showing up-conflicting schedules, etc, that the court can extend this period until both parties can get together. That's reasonable, isn't it? But the anti-gun democrats are claiming the "bar's too high". WTF?? How is that too high? Are they refusing to vote for this measure (which I fully support) because it allows due process? Someone wanna explain how you should be denied due process because a democrat doesn't like you? I thought that the presumption of innocence was one of the basic tenets of our jurisprudence! Based on some of the stuff I've read, there are democrats out there who a)haven't got a fucking CLUE what they're talking about, and b)think all gun owners are mentally defective-i'm sure you've all heard that we're "compensating" for a small dick, right? Or are they not voting for it simply because the evil NRA supports it?
