  •  They already have a problem in states like NY with (1+ / 0-)

    violence that comes from guns purchased in low oversight states like VA.

    This idea is DOA (no humor intended).

    You can't make this stuff up.

    •  Is gun violence up or down in NY after bans? (1+ / 0-)

      It's down.

      If a state wants to be "That State" where everybody leaving it gets searched because they allow cheap and plentiful guns, they can be my guest.

      I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

      •  lol so what, leaving that state (0+ / 0-)

        would mean going through a U.S Customs search of everything in your vehicle? Seriously?

        Gee, so much for a interstate rush hour commute. "Exhaustive state border cavity searches are taking longer than usual this morning...."

        And then there's the fact that ahem, it wouldn't be a SINGLE state, would it. It'd be more like..........half of the states. Certainly the Deep South. They'd keep THEIR damn-near non-existent gun laws in tact. (begs the question of "how does this repeal ever happen outside The Twilight Zone" again but I digress)

        Which brings us back to square one, basically.

        Your repeal plan is "a step in the right direction" but still not good enough.

        Still gotta do a full nationwide ban, door-to-door confiscation, mass imprisonment of violators, etc. And you gotta be prepared for - best case scenario - a few hundred Ruby Ridge fiascos. That'll be no problem however - I'm sure our tank driving, MP5 wielding, body armor clad militarized police will exercise the utmost restraint.
