Beware of moles with evil intent

Beware of moles with evil intent

Moles come in different forms. Most are animals, like the two Boston bombers. Yes, I believe their family was trained to be moles.

The manner in which they brought their destruction to reality shows long hours of schooling. I believe Boston was a target long before 2013. Maybe it was even developed in another country. True Americans don’t teach mayhem and mutilation.

What to do with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? I say banishment. Deport this animal back to where he came from. Let him spend every day regretting that he can no longer have the comforts and pleasures provided by the best of the best, the U.S.A. That’s a death penalty every day forever.

Gun control not answer to violence

Recently we as a nation have experienced some tragedies, Sandy Hook and the Boston bombings. Gun control always comes up as the problem.

The gun is not the problem; it is the criminal element, the person who uses the gun to commit acts of violence and terrorism that is the problem.

Removing assault weapons and requiring stricter background checks is not the answer. The bad guys is not going to submit to a background check. Passing this type of legIstration will only put more money in the hands of illegal gun runners and black market sellers.

Law enforcement, the courts and society must become more aggressive in identifying, bringing to trial and imprisoning these people so they cannot hurt society again. We must proceed with all deliberate speed in this direction, so the citizens can feel safe and secure in their environment.

We the people enjoy a great many rights and privileges in this great nation; the Second Amendment is one of them and must never be compromised.

To Jim Eidel,
I dont agree with your assessment that background checks don't work. And specifically that "bad guys", don't submit to firearms background checks.

In 2012, Colorado Bureau of Investigation blocked:
420 purchases for persons having an active restraining order
38 purchases for persons having a homicide record
12 purchases for persons having a kidnapping record
133 purchases for persons having a sexual assault record
618 purchases for persons having a burglary record
1380 purchases for persons having an assault record
And so forth, for a total for 7,362 purchase denials.

Furthermore, 236 persons were arrested during the purchase (because of the background check) that were actual fugitives from justice..
****
In Pennsylvania, more than 1500 fugitives have been arrested when they identified themselves during a firearm background check.

Based on facts, it appears that "bad guys" do submit to background checks.
****
The greatest flaw in the "never compromise the second amendment" is the "never compromise". That argument would seek to repeal the current Brady Act because it is a compromise of the Second Amendment.

Repeal the Brady Act and ANYONE (including the "bad guys" and persons not mentally stable) would have unrestricted ability to purchase.

By necessity, the "never compromise" agenda would repeal the existing firearms acts, allowing the purchase (by good and bad guys) of fully automatic firearms.

The "never compromise" position would permit the production, sale, and possession of plastic (undetectable) firearms.

I can't imagine that you really mean "never compromise", or do you?

Richie...there's a due process clause in the Constitution regardless of what you want. I'd hate to see what would happen if we didn't have such protections. While Tsarnaev's actions are deplorable. There's one thing you must remember. He's entitled to a fair, speedy trial as per the Constitution. Also, if you have any evidence that Dagestan, or Chechnya had wanted to attack the USA...I'd love to hear it. If not...you're up the creek without a paddle.

To Jim Eidel:

In 2102 according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (that administers the Brady Act in TN):

18,023 firearm transactions were denied for prohibitions.

9,937 transactions were appealed
4,581 transaction appeals were upheld

441 Stolen guns were identified by the background check system

469 fugitives from justice ("wanted" persons) were identified.

97% of all background checks over the entire year took less than 15 minutes.

86% of all background checks over the entire year took less than 5 minutes.
