    it's not so much a show of force by DHS as it is drying up the market / draining the swamps. for any seizures to take place, you must have cooperation at the local level, which they know they can't depend upon.

    Do you have any idea how far-right most government workers are? I mean, I work for the government, and all of my co-workers worry about "the government" taking our guns? It makes no sense...I mean if anyone was going to take guns, it would be US. IMO, the radicals that worry about this stuff create the problem themselves, getting so paranoid, stocking up on all types of guns, that they start violating laws and other people's rights, and then feds have to go in after them, creating the paranoid situation they were so afraid of.

    it does attract an odd mix: t-tards & obamaphiles, but hardly anyone in the middle

    that's been my experience, anyway

    Me thinks someone doesn't know what "subtle" means.

    Sounds like every other america loving patriot.


    Seriously, 'patriotism' has somehow morphed into 'that ideal of a country that I carry around in my 2% functioning brain that only I can see'

    if that "armed to the teeth w/ deadly weapons act of civil disobedience" goes through, each person could catch a couple federal charges, to include arms trafficking across state lines.

    More immigrant felons freed than initially reported

    *more*????

    multiple. felony. convictions.

    also, Napolitano has said she didn't learn about the lower-level decision until after it happened.

    i'm starting to see a theme here: lotsa people w/ lotsa power don't seem to weld any of it in the gathering of information arena.

    Wonder if this was the same guy setting of dry ice bombs in the bathrooms? God, those must have been loud in an enclosed space. Good day to not be non-reving out of LAX.

    Gun control/not about race x-posts

    "Moreover, most acts of terrorism are committed not with bombs or improvised weapons, but with firearms. And that points to an even greater point: The number of gun deaths in the United States in 2015 is projected to reach, by one estimate,33,000. That’s more than 11 September 11s in a single year. Even the number of incidents in the New America report involving gunfire—68 of the 74 deaths—shrinks in comparison to the annual toll of gun violence. Yet there’s far more political will to address terrorism than guns."
