Lautenberg, Public Enemy
When I read the newest Frank Lautenberg proposal last week, that end runs the Second Amendment by denying gun ownership to anyone on the terrorist watch list,
a list that no one knows how they got on; a list you can't get off
of, it came on the heels of so many other civil liberty outrages
that I threw my hands up and went straight to the corn juice. Now
I've run across it again, but it's all wrapped up and ready for
Frank Lautenberg hasn't had an honest job in years; he's been suckling
at the government teat since the current president was a frosh in
undergrad. After metastasizing from a mere Port Authority commissar to
a senator in 1982, he voted about like you'd expect a Democrat from New
Jersey to vote, being generally in favor of taxes and of bribing
lower-income voters with other people's money.
Having nearly single-handedly saved America from the scourge of
gun-wielding wife beaters, Frank is now going to protect us from
terrorists. His latest hobby horse
is that nobody on the government's double-secret "Terrorist List"
should be allowed to buy a firearm. If passed, that means it's "Sorry,
Sam, no Daisy Red Ryder carbine action air rifle with a compass in the
stock and this thing which tells time for you." [Take out]
