(Washington Times)   It's one thing to break DC's gun laws when you're white and rich but if you're non-white and non-rich... oh you better believe you're going to get charged with a crime. Bonus: Defendant is an Army vet and applicant for US Marshal   (washingtontimes.com) divider line 22

I fail to see the controversy.  From the pic Mr Brinkley is obviously African American.  We all know we can't let those kinds of people have weapons of mass destruction like empty Glock magazines.

St_Francis_P: I find it encouraging that the Conservative Entertainment Complex is finally worrying about the treatment of minorities and the disadvantaged. Bravo!


They have always cared about them, they don't just use them for political expediency or as background props in advertisements. They don't drop into strange dialects when speaking to African-Americans like Sec. Clinton, or when speaking to Asian-Americans like Vice President Biden.

They see them as people with the same goals, needs and families as themselves, not as votes to be duped into being cast for them through lies and manipulation.

OregonVet: Even if a bank robber passes a note stating he has a gun he's going down for armed robbery if all he's got is a rotten banana in his pocket. And in some states that's a minimum jail term outside the judge's discretion.

Obviously, DC's gun laws are designed to get guns & accessories off the streets, not out of TV studios.  It has nothing to do with race or socioeconomic status.

BraveNewCheneyWorld:
What color is the sky in your world?

[i49.tinypic.com image 850x606]


Right now it's black with little pretty white specks. Sometimes it's blue, sometimes reddish, some times it looks dull yellow. Depends on atmospheric conditions I suppose, same as yours.

Maybe you misunderstand me. I wasn't saying ALL people with guns are idiots. I approve of people's right's to own fire arms. Hell I have 30 of them. Several of them are 'military style assault type weapons' with 'high capacity clip magazines'. I've had a carry permit for the last 4 years. I was responding to this:

I think we should strip every gun control law from the books both federal and state and replace them with one:
"In order to legally own any firearm, firearm accessory or ammunition you must have a working IQ of at least 85"


And while initially that seems like a good idea, I was just pointing out that giving an idiot a gun usually ends up with one less idiot in the world. So that's why I support gun rights for responsible owners AND idiots.

I am starting to think Senator Fienstien is actually pro gun. Very much. She has a carry permit and armed guards right? I am starting to think she must be getting kickbacks from gun manufacturers as well. What happened last time she passed her gun ban. Gun prices of 'pre-ban' stock shot way up. Now as she is pushing this next ban through, AR-15s and mag prices have gone up 20% or so. I'd be willing to bet she's making some major cash on this, in one of the world's greatest trolls.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: BraveNewCheneyWorld: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Now you're sending a man to jail for a year because some doofus thinks everything he sees on TV is real.

Harry Potter = not real
The news = 99.9% real
For fark's sake, please stop derping. The man stated that it was a high capacity magazine, and just inquired if he would be exempt from the law because he was using it for demonstrative purposes. You've really gone full retard on this one.

So, YOU think a news anchor using a prop or replica of a magazine is in all cases obligated or motivated to say, "Now, this is a REPLICA of a thirty round magazine..." ?

And failing to do so constitutes some kind of lie or scandal?

Cuz that's really funny.


No, I think that nobody would bother to ask the police if a replica of an illegal magazine is legal to have.

See what you did there? You read the point I actually made, then substituted a ridiculous point that I did not make, and only responded to the point that you fabricated. It's almost as if you'd prefer to debate an idea of your own design that resembles my argument only in the fact that it contains a few of the same elements. That's kind of like someone who's especially weak creating a figure out of straw, then pummeling it to give extremely stupid people the impression that he has just beaten an actual man.

I see the Fark Law School recently had a commencement ceremony.

ReverendJasen: Tatterdemalian:
This "good darkie," as you so racistly phrased it, carried a loaded assault rifle openly...

Nitpick: unless that gun has fully automatic functionality, it is not an assault rifle.

/but hey, at least you didn't call it an AK47


But it is black and scary looking.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Farkage: And if either of them was charged, they both have to be charged.

Because a picture of you holding a magazine in a place not your residence is EXACTLY the same class of evidence as being busted with said magazine in your vehicle along with the weapon it is intended to be used with.

The desperation here is hilarious.

Peter von Nostrand: Lsherm: In the much better, much longer version of the story they actually note that he had an arrest warrant out because of a prior traffic stop that never got taken care of.  That's what snowballed the search.  They should have dropped the charges.  It's a stupid law, and it shouldn't have been applied in this case anyway.  Nor should it have been applied when what's his face waved an empty magazine on tv.

Gun control laws tend to be pretty stupid, as do the people who support them.  They don't do any good, and instead exist solely so the police have an excuse to harass law-abiding citizens like this man.

I guess all those countries with far more restrictive gun laws that have far fewer deaths due to gun violence are "stupid". However the belief that because Billy Joe Bob and his drinking buddies are armed, they are the last thing that stands between us and the tyranny of the US government makes complete sense


You could always move to Mexico... guns are illegal there. Seems like a safe place.

"The official said he took a phone call on Friday from someone at NBC who wanted to know about showing ammunition and a gun magazine on the show. "

Loaded or not, that sure sounds like it was a real mag.
