A felon CAN'T buy a gun, but they CAN run for government office, how F-t up is that !..........
They can't 'legally' buy a gun. But they can buy a gun.
Makes perfect sense to me. If they are elected, and sent to DC, they are in
a familiar environment, and out of your state, i.e., safely away from your mother,
daughters and sisters...
A felon can't be forced to register his gun, but the people who say they don't want to take our guns have been trying to get gun registration for about 5 decades
Haynes V US 1968
my question is: why does everyone not know this?
There used to be a joke that said " if a robber robs you with a registered gun and you shoot him with an unregistered gun, you are in more trouble than he is ".

What is a 'registered gun'??????????
the holy grail; the whole life goal; the impossible dream, of the loony left.
I knew what one was when I lived in NY. Now that I'm no longer there, I seem to have forgotten what they are.
PA did away with registration before I moved here.
And in some states, that have already accomplished that goal. granted, except for a couple places, not every legally owned one, but certain classes of them, like handguns and "AW"s.
And in NY's case, nowhere near the true number of them, that were legal before 15 January, 2013, are registered under the laws of the Unsafe Act.
Thanks for the info. I thought the Constitution would not allow registration as history show that to be the first step in confiscation. But I guess this is just another time the guberment disregards the Constitution and WE LET THEM!!!
And if they pass the law, due to most member of state Congress being elected by liberal run cities, then how do we, in the minority, fight that?
they make the law, LE is tasked with enforcing it, the courts are also tasked with punishing those who violate it, and hiring a lawer to fight the case out in appeals court, repeatedly, costs a lot of money.
Add to this a SCOTUS that has turned down every GC case since getting the DC ban overturned, and it's really less of a headache, and far less money, to get the Pistol Permit there, and register said handgun or "AW", than it ever will be to break the law, hire a lawyer, go to court, and don't forget bail if you don't want to wait that part out in the local jail, wind up in prison, fight the charges over your first appeal, as the Constitution promises us, and after that, as you are locked up, and unable to protect or provide for your family, and costs related to further appeals come out of your own pocket, or that of your loved ones.
I can't speak for anyone else, but I personally, do not have an extra $10,000,000 just collecting dust in my sock drawer, to pay those fees. hence my paying the roughly $300 all told when I turned 21, to get that pistol permit in NY, rather than risk arrest for not having one, and owning a pistol, as well as the unregistered handgun charge.
And I think my absence from NY, as well as the fact that I paid out a few thousand dollars to leave the state 4 years ago, kind of works as a statement on whether I agree with said laws, IE, registration and Possession permits, or disagree with them.
If I did, I would be posting this from an apartment in NY, but not NYC.
And please Jim, think about the reply first, and don't just throw in a quip about how LE should refuse to enforce those laws. The majority of the ones I know, on a first name basis BTW, back there do not enforce the provisions of the Unsafe Act, by their own personal choice, but they do enforce the Sullivan Act, as usually, the people they arrest for it are serious low lifes, who were busted for something other than just having an unregistered handgun. Drugs, rape, assault, robbery, ect, are usually the factor putting them on LE's radar.
And I did not live in NYC. The NYPD is a totally different animal that rural LE in most of the rest of the state.
Seriously, how does one fight unjust laws, in a state where most of the voting population supports such laws? NYS gets the laws they do, because NYC has what seems to be a majority vote. If NY could drop NYC, then yes, changing a lot of the laws there would be far easier.
It's not always as easy as "Just follow the Constitution, and don't enforce these laws." to do so, one would have to have a major swing in the political makeup of a state. Good luck with that in a place like NY.
And this is coming from someone who was fighting those laws from 1993 to 2014.
So the government is shut down and all nonessential personnel are being sent home.
Why do we employ “nonessential” personnel?
Who are these people?
Are they referring to congress?
But not to worry. Once the shutdown is stopped all these "non-essentials" will get full back pay for their time at home!!!
As Judge Judy says: "What a wonderful country!"
Nice picture of John Kerry!
The "Why the long face, John?" John Kerry?
A horse walks into a Bar,
The bartender asks,
Why the long face ?..........
You just about can't buy a gun where that fool lives anyways.
More disturbing, is this digit can't even figure out what he wants to be, yet wants to tell the rest of us how we should be.
He don't stand a chance. Even within the party of Dr. Feelgood. More virtue signaling by the victim class, and after he gets his a## handed to him he'll blame white christian NRA men for all his woes. SOP.

Actually, not very, when you give it some deep thought. An elected representative
is supposed to have shared experience with his constituents, is he not? If Liberals
can elect felons, they have something in common...
