that was soo funny, what a moron. This is what happens when stupid people get voted in. I wish we had more aggressive news anchors like this this guy. Most anchors ask stupid allready known questions, and wouldnt dare to confront any of these dumb politicians.

I could have sworn another politician back in the 90s testified before congress and listed off guns, some of which were fictional

Is there even such a thing as a "shoulder thing that goes up"?

Old and dupe. Mark Twain said it best:

Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.

I like Tucker Carlson, used to always wear a bow tie, I guess he was too balanced for MSNBC

I wonder about this myself.

First of all, in every area I'm familar with except firearms, when a question comes up about enforcement or regulation, "blue-ribbon" panels or commitees are formed to study the situation and make recommendations.

These panels are usually made up of individuals with proven and established expertise in the area of interest.

In the case of firearms law, no such thing ever happens in public, and I suspect that it doesn't much happen behind the scenes either.

Second, the "experts" that are trotted out are usually victims of violence, and if we were to apply that critera to other areas of governmental interest, why don't we have the family of Mary Jo Kopechne commenting on auto safety or bridge design?

(Off color note - if we want to use Dianne Feinstein's statement about her expertise on firearms as a rule - "I stuck my finger in the bullet hole" - that must make me a gynecologist)

Third, hysteria makes for poor public policy, but that seems to be the driving force behind gun legislation.

No, no, no. She'd be an expert witness on drunk driving and leaving the scene.

I believe we need a new amendment that bans lawyers from the legislative branch. Conflict of interest. Lawyers should not be allowed to make the laws...

I like Tucker Carlson, used to always wear a bow tie, I guess he was too balanced for MSNBC

I really started liking Tucker when I heard him interviewed on the Bubba The Love Sponge show on Sirius.

He got into a discussion with them once about how he came to be fired from MSNBC - He said that he had attempted to get MSNBC to send him to Iraq to report, and they turned him down. He then entered into a contract to write an article on the war for Vanity Fair who sent him to Iraq on assignment - no problem with his bosses at MSNBC.

He was traveling with and writing about security contractors, and they got hit - he was asked by one of his subjects if he knew how to handle a weapon, he replied in the affirmative, and was given a rifle and told to watch in one direction for threats, which he did, though he did not fire the weapon (he didn't specify type of weapon in the interview that I heard, and I have not read the article in question)

He wrote up the story, and all was well until he was asked to appear in front of some MSNBC bigwig, who asked Tucker if the events as written occurred, and if so, did he stand by his story - he told them he didn't write fiction, and that the events happened as described.

Tucker then got 86'd by MSNBC in a very underhanded way, specifically because of his possession of a weapon while reporting.

Having heard that interview and others, I've come to the conclusion that he may be nerdy, and he certainly isn't one of the guys, but he is Good People.

This is one of the funniest threads I've ever read! Almost p****d my pants! That picture is awesome and so is the reporter; "the thing that goes up"... "no it doesn't". I can't stop laughing!

What a battle gun owners have. Fighting laws incarnated with no facts or reason. Complete insanity. Sad and frustrating!

Anyone seen the vid of one of her croonies claiming that 50 cals shoot incendiary rounds which are heat seeking devices?

Are you suggesting that they only pass laws about graft, influence peddling, bribery, perjury, pork, subversion of the Republic, and similar assorted activities??

"Blue ribbon panels" are toothless - a device used by politicians to take the heat off themselves, delay acting, and recommendations used or ignored as it fits the pols' wants.....

If the politicians had written clearer laws, we would not have OLLs, BBs, MMGs, Magazine parts kits, the potential for NeRFs, and who knows what else.

It's a good thing that they don't form Blue ribbon panels, then they would really be dangerous.
