That headline sucks worse that Justin Bieber covering "We Built This City on Rock and Roll".  It's so bad that I'm only able to compare it to hypothetical things that suck.

'Allowing background checks that the vast majority of Americans support' is 'gutting the second amendment', apparently.

Sound and fury. Nothing else. The article makes a point on telling the reader not to get their hopes up. I feel the telling part is the reliance on out of state money to finance the effort. Doesn't sound like the residents are so fired up that they will fund it themselves.

What about all those gun manufacturers that said they were going to pull up stakes? Wouldn't it be a fraction of their moving expenses to foot the bill of a recall effort?

In the end, sound and fury

Well, for one, New York State's gun confiscation bill (passed in secret, without a public review period) allows the police to seize weapons from anybody they deem a threat, without a warrant or judicial oversight.

"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

infringe |inˈfrinj|
verb ( infringes, infringing, infringed ) [ with obj. ]
actively break the terms of (a law, agreement, etc.): making an unauthorized copy would infringe copyright.
act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on: his legal rights were being infringed | [ no obj. ] : I wouldn't infringe on his privacy.

Not saying I'm not all for a little gutting, but words having meaning, it would seem any limits on the right are an infringement.

You asked.
 
2013-05-28 09:24:59 AM  
I'm sorry, but the Second Amendment does not actually protect your right to buy any weapon with no investigation of whether you might use that weapon to create havoc in the world. Yes, that means you can't get nuclear bombs. Suck it.

Nope, even liberal groups understood that a recall was a hope and a prayer and a small but tamped down voice in the DNC effectively said that it was the wrong move to do and they should have rather bided their time for the next cycle.

Does the Second Amendment apply to states?

The Constitution also protects our right to, among other things, practice free speech. Yet I'm not allowed to go to Wall Street, rant about how the big banks are destroying the country and killing people, and tell onlookers we should immediately go lynch the head honchos of these banks.

Funny, I remember that the vote on background checks did have negative consequences...for the idiots who voted against it. And now the NRA is putting up money to try to get a few recall elections started on a couple of people who voted for it, and even Fox News is cautioning people like dickmitter not to get his hopes up, and still he wharrgbles out of both ends.

Well in subby's defense, he had an extra day to store up all his wargle-bargle, plus it was Memorial Day so he probably spent all weekend watching The Longest Day and The Guns of Navarone on AMC or Turner Classics or whatever.

Mix in a healthy serving of Keystone Light and a little Fox News and....here you go.

2013-05-28 09:33:31 AM  
Let's play how many things did subby get wrong in the headline game!

"Lawmakers who voted to gut the second ammendment..."

Although it pains me to read a fox news article, I quote from paragraph 4:  The targeted lawmakers weren't necessarily the main advocates for ratcheting back gun rights, but all come from districts with enough Republicans to give opponents hope they can boot out the Democrats and replace them with lawmakers friendlier to guns.

So, opportunistic right-wing groups are using gun-rights as an issue to stir up the base even though the democratic lawmakers in question didn't even necessarily support any gun-restriction, let alone 'gutting the second amendment.'

"... are now facing recall votes across the country."

FTA: "Two of four recall efforts in Colorado already have evaporated from lack of support. But in Colorado Springs, Morse opponents are piling up signatures in gun shops and outside libraries and grocery stores."

In other words, the NRA and other conservative interest groups are attempting to get signatures for a recall vote and no one mentioned in the article is actually facing a recall yet.

The rest of the headline is just words from subby's imaginary butthurt world. That makes the final tally... everything! Everything in the headline is wrong.
