re: Kathlene Parker: The GOP’s clash of ridiculous cliches - Taxing Authority
[quote]The President and other Democrat leaders called Republicans in Congress 'domestic terrorists' during the shutdown.[/quote]Yabbut... that was high-minded intellectualism. Not appealing to the lowest common denominator. :rotflmao:...

re: Kathlene Parker: The GOP’s clash of ridiculous cliches - Taxing Authority
[quote]I think she's highlighting that parts of the GOP have gone "all-in" on appealing to the lowest common denominator. [/quote]This is a silly stance. When Obama crudely and crassly calls out Republicans, we do not say he "appeals to the lowest common denominator". You (and the author) are at...

re: Obama Admits US Gun Laws Are His 'biggest frustration' - Taxing Authority
[quote]Again, you can count on two hands that amount of mass shootings involving soft targets in the last two years.[/quote]You seem to be presuming this is about reducing gun [i]violence[/i]. In reality, it's about reducing gun [i]ownership[/i]. ...

[quote]The NICS simply can't handle the volume, I doubt any gov't-run database can without hundreds of millions invested. Some cost associated? You don't even have the first clue.[/quote]Indeed.

re: Obama Admits US Gun Laws Are His 'biggest frustration' - Taxing Authority
[quote]There's no cost/benefit issue with some of that. Sell a gun as a private seller, and don't run a background check? Gun is used in a crime, you're getting hit with a huge fine. [/quote]Sell a car, don't do a background check, new owner gets drunk and kills someone, the seller is hit with a hug...

re: Obama Admits US Gun Laws Are His 'biggest frustration' - Taxing Authority
[quote]Great job misconstruing my point, I'm sure it was on purpose. [/quote]Nope. [quote]We don't need to do evaluations on everyone who wants to buy a gun (and I'm not sure that's constitutional, anyway). What we COULD do is establish a way for gun sellers to check for existing issues. [/quo...

re: I know this board hates "gun control" but any measures you would support? - Taxing Authority
[quote]This was my first thought as well, which raises more questions than it answers. Obviously the "who" is important, [/quote]Indeed. We already have a severe shortage of mental health services.

re: Obama Admits US Gun Laws Are His 'biggest frustration' - Taxing Authority
[quote]And what loopholes could they use to get around that 'ban'? [/quote]The only loophole is that people with mental illness must self-identify as such. That need to self identify... Doesn't go away with mental health evaluation. Psychiatrists != psychics. Other than the ill person telling th...

re: I know this board hates "gun control" but any measures you would support? - Taxing Authority
[quote]I have no problem with more strict background checks. Problem there is that it really needs to involve mental illness background check which is legally protected medical info. Not sure how that would work. [/quote]it wouldn't. People lie to docs all the time. Look how many people lie to docs ...

[quote]That's why it might be worth looking into an independent system that could tell you when someone's been classified as crazy[/quote]Silly. WTF does "classified as crazy" mean? Are you suggesting large-scale mental evaluations? What criteria? "Crazy" isn't a criteria, btw. What makes you think ...

[quote]Increased attempts at making sure people who own deadly weapons aren't going to shoot up a theater is a better way to ensure fewer people shoot them up than our current laws.[/quote]Well...

[quote]This is quite a scary proposition.

[quote]A mentally ill person legally bought a gun in this case. Now what? Why did that happen? [/quote]Believe it or not most mentally ill people don't walk around with a sign saying "I'm mentally ill". Though some may wear t-shirts identifying themselves as such tho. What do you propose we do...

re: Did Houser shoot from the back or from the front of the theater? - Taxing Authority
[quote]"Tighter gun laws" in US cities are, nevertheless, lenient, and are almost [b]impossible to enforce[/b], anyway, when they're just small islands within an ocean of guns. [/quote]If you can't effectively enforce the laws in a city, how will it be enforceable over an entire nation? ...
