But the republicans will save us. Right?

Heroic, freedom-loving Paul Ryan (R-White House, Someday) just wants to close one teensy loophole first…

On gun violence, Ryan said he is open to closing some loopholes without infringing on people’s Second Amendment rights.

“I think we should look into someone not legally allowed to buy a gun going to buy one and let’s figure that out,” he said. “Let’s find out how to close these loopholes without infringing on Second Amendment rights,” he said.

Ryan said he is against a ban on assault weapons, saying the old law didn’t stop gun violence. Banning high-capacity magazines isn’t effective, either, he said.

But Ryan said he wants to have a conversation about the root causes of violence.

“What is wrong with our system when a person who is clearly mentally ill missed all the checks he needed to prevent that from happening?” he said.

    I agree with the idea of preventing the insane from getting access to guns, but HOW the hell do you do that without infringing on people’s freedom ? Everybody (EVERYBODY) would have to get a mental checkup, than some appointed person – people get to decide “He’s dangerous – she’s okay”. Seriously – thats your plan? Your very best plan?

    The people proposing this need to spend a lot of time explaining it to us, I’m far too stupid to see how this will remove any risk.

    The question not being asked by most of us is: “By what legitimate authority?” Did you ever ask a politician, a gun grabber, a public school teacher, a bureaucrat… “By what legitimate authority do you demand, order, enforce, do these things?”

    I have.

    Most, of course, cite the “constitution” and/or “the rule of law.” I then ask them where those things get their LEGITIMATE authority. So far, NONE of them can answer that, and most become extremely angry when questioned at all. Yet I would think that is the most important question we can ask.

    And it’s the most important question we can ask ourselves. Do we own our lives, or have we given our sovereign and natural authority over ourselves to the rulers and politicians?

    Just who gave Ryan, Obama, Clinton, Feinstein or any of the rest of them the authority to decide these things? By what legitimate authority? I never gave any of them mine.

    If we all had guns and were competent with the, we would have little to fear from the crazies and politicians.p

To the stake with the heretic!
