I always read that site logo as "BIE". But when I click it I don't get any.

It will be a great day for personal liberty when Schumer finally goes away for good.

Does the Food and Drug Administration actually have the power to mandate warning labels on things that are not even remotely foods or drugs?

Serious question, they may, it just seems a bit out of their jurisdiction.

I already can't get the laser I want because of import restrictions. I want to see if I can use one on my weeds in the cracks and spaces in the concrete, rather than one of the flaming torch things.

In all honesty, there's not much for a New York Senator who's not running for re-election to do in July of an election year. What's he gonna do, go stump for Claire McCaskill?

I thought we were done with the laser-pointer thing. For a while there you couldn't go to any public event without some a-hole farking everything up with a laser-pointer. You wouldn't think that you could screw up a laser-Floyd show with another laser, but it happened.

Har har. I hate those things because they sell them to kids who think they're so cool. It's fine if they're using them to entertain cats, but I've seen them used to blind a goalie during a kids' hockey game, the whole pilot thing, etc. They get treated like toys but can really injure someone. Lawsuits all 'round, I say.

While I am completely against shining laser pointers at commercial and military aircraft, I think we should go all-out at laserpointing aircraft spraying chemtrails on us. Since the government insists they don't exist, no harm done shining it at a non-existent chemtrail sprayer.

Lasers are both a part of science and modern military kit. They are useful tools and educational toys.
If he considers them to be destructive weapons then I believe they would fall under the 2nd amendment.
To which: Schumer can march his nanny state authoritarian arse back under whichever rock it crawled out from under.

The 2nd amendment is not a blanket authorization for anyone to own anything. You can't do bombs, automatic weapons without the correct license, etc. Laser pointers in the hands of children are dangerous.

No, planes that are not leaving contrails that soon dissipate, but rather spray a white substance that expands from its trail and lingers for hours. Whatever government operation does this, it's like off and on. Sometimes they'll go apeshiat like the last time I was in Death Valley where it used to be always pure blue skies, sprayed some days til it was all white. But those aren't clouds, clouds move. The chemtrails just hang there.

It's interesting to see that Chuck Schumer is going after laser pointers, instead of guns. There was a time where he was Mr. Gun Control personified. I guess he doesn't want his party to lose the White House.

I'm pretty sure he did other things occasionally even when he was advocating for more gun control. Do you also find it interesting when he's eating dinner and not advocating for gun control?

There really shouldn't be a way to get the high power ones without being slapped in the face with a hundred warnings about how ridiculously dangerous they are. I mean, you should be able to get them, but holy shiat are they dangerous.

If you've seen a green laser, you know how much more powerful they are then red. Now go google up some of the even higher power ones. They can pop balloons and light matches. You can rig them up to kill mosquitoes. Those things are not to be taken lightly.

I don't think a gun control debate at the legislative level would translate to a Rmoney win. That's quite a leap.

Polling after polling show that certain common sense regulations are overwhelmingly supported by Americans. The issue isn't losing an election. The issue is the worst congress. Ever.

A quick search on "Chuck Schumer laser pointers" makes it clear that they are not alone. Apparently, there are a fair number of people morons who think he's just making it up.
