tyler, tx — It's been a week since the Colorado theater shootings.
Except for the fringe groups, everyone spent the first few days praying and thinking of the people who were killed, the families which were torn apart and lives that were broken.
Now, that it has been a week all the end runs of politics. Everyone trying to get make their political points.
We told you last night the mayor of New York wanted all cops to go on strike until gun legislation was passed. He backed down aster he realized he was over the top.
Now, Senate Democrats are trying to sneak gun legislation through as part of a cyber security bill.
This is what politicians do.
They take the easy way out, so instead of really studying the matter, they are trying the oldest play in the book--- piggyback on another bill and no one will see.
Of course leading the pack, get me in front of the TV Charles Schumer of new York. Then other northeastern liberals you've never head of.
According to the hill.com, Democratic senators have offered an amendment to the cyber security bill that would limit the purchase of high capacity gun magazines for some consumers.
Shortly after the Cyber Security Act gained Senate approval to proceed to filing proposed amendments and a vote next week, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), a sponsor of the gun control amendment, came to the floor to defend the idea of implementing some "reasonable" gun control measures.
S.A. 2575 would make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition.
No matter how you feel about this issue, you need to call out your lawmakers.
Call their office. Write them.
If there is a gun bill, it should be a wide-open discussion. Not sneaked through.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
