Re: Background Checks for Private Party Sales: How?

As a follow up to my previous post, I think we are sometimes a bit too quick to view our political opponents on this issue as naive or stupid because their proposals would be ineffective or not address the real issues. I tend to think that while the author of a bill or even some of the spokesmen may...

Re: Background Checks for Private Party Sales: How?

The problem isn't that we don't have a way to do background checks, it is that fundamentally the concept of a mandatory background check MUST necessarily be tied to a paper trail - gun registration. You can't say "every sale must have a background check" and then not have a requirement to...

Re: Background Checks for Private Party Sales: How?

Why couldn't they just allow NICS to be used by private sellers directly? I wouldn't mind being able to call in a buyer I don't personally know. The major issue, as I see it, is that that kind of access would allow possible access of private data to anyone who calls. I'm not sure what would stop so...

Re: SSRI drugs (Prozac) report mentioned at capital

Half of the legislators are probably on them. A good friend (retired neurologist) informs me that the antidepressants are way over prescribed to people who do not meet the clinical criteria for depression. What are these drugs doing to their heads? Same with pain medications. Oxycodone is one of th...

Re: SSRI drugs (Prozac) report mentioned at capital

You have to monitor the results and ensure that the behavior changes are positive and the side effects are not cause for concern. Additionally, if your a gun owner, enhanced measures to secure firearms and ammunition in your residence should be implemented. A common sense solution that would not re...

Re: SSRI drugs (Prozac) report mentioned at capital

I think the meds are something worth looking into, but I also think we need to be careful. I would suspect that more people are shot by someone who is drunk than those on Rx meds. You also have to wonder about the potential behavior of individuals who are untreated. It's not like they were perfectl...

Re: House Public Safety Finance and Policy Committee

And this joker wants to discuss restricting an item that by definition is defensive only, has never been used in a mass shooting in MN, and is already made a felony if used in the commission of a crime? I wish one of the Reps would introduce a bogus bill to restrict marathons and weight training. A...
