Excellent post, Rick. I'm stealing those last 2 lines. I'll credit you, though.

Thanks TenOC, but I saw that saying somewhere else and stole it. I thought it was appropriate to our current situation.

"America" it seems will lay down and cower, and has been for some time now as infringements on the RKBA have been increasingly restrictive. I believe there will be a large degree of non-compliance, but little overt resistance--and a good thing, too. Acts of overt resistance, in this environment, will be isolated and easily controlled by TPTB. People will die and be imprisoned, and they will be seen as fanatics, criminals, child abusers, mentally unstable, and just plain kooky.

The problem, as has been pointed out here several times, is leadership. There are just no credible leaders committed to defending our rights and competent to unite Americans in effective action. Imagine the American revolution without Hamilton, Jefferson, Washington, Henry, Madison, or the Adams'.

There is a fly in the Libtard ointment. To quote Margaret Thatcher -

"The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."

I wrote up a little rant over on AR15.com about it...

Quote:
CHILD PORNOGRAPHY is such a problem in the US, I suggest we...Highly regulate the ownership of cameras. Here is my proposal:

Anyone who wishes to buy a still camera must first get fingerprinted, and have a thorough background check / mental health screening done, in order to prove the person is not a known sex offender. You must also prove "good cause" and give proper reasons why you NEED a camera. Simply stating that photography is your hobby is not a good enough reason to warrant a permit to purchase or carry a still camera.

Video cameras are another issue. Did you know that video cameras can take up to 30 photos EVERY SECOND?? In order to own one of these, you must first submit to a full mental health screening, and your local law enforcement authority must approve of you before you are allowed to own one. You must also give "proper cause" as to why you need such a camera. It must pertain to your job in most cases, and be an absolute necessity for your employment.

High capacity memory cards are particularly dangerous, and should be banned all together. They can take, and store, literally THOUSANDS of photos of naked children. Who would need so many photos anyway? If limiting the capacity of memory cards to say, 10 photos, saves just 1 child from being illicitly photographed, it is worth it.

Now teachers and day care providers...They should not be allowed to own a camera, or a camera phone, even in their homes, let alone being able to carry one on their person while at school. Schools are simply too sensitive of an area to risk a possible sex offender / child pornographer having a camera around so many children. Schools should be NO CAMERA ZONES. Period.

Concealable cameras, such as camera phones, should also be banned, as they can get into sensitive areas undetected, and take illicit photos of children all too easily.

Please, we need to have an open discussion regarding the regulation of cameras, video cameras, and high capacity memory cards. It is the only way to prevent our children from being victims.

Great parody Dave.

One of the things I fear is this whole issue of "mental health" checks. It is a very slippery slope. Who gets checked? What about doctor/patient confidentiality?

On the other hand, I recently saw a list of the perps in a number of mass shootings here and abroad. Seems that the vast majority of these cases involved prescription psychotropic meds of one sort or the other. Obviously, sometimes the side effects of these drugs have unintended and devastating consequences.

The College Station massacre in Texas a few decades ago is a prime example of how terribly wrong our brains can become. The perp was an outstanding student/person until about a year before the shooting. He underwent significant mental changes leading up to the shooting. In fact, he was so distraught over it that in his suicide note he asked that his brain be examined after his death and lo and behold, a tumor was found in an area of the brain believed to responsible for "moral" conduct.

I guess the point I'm trying to make, is how do you use "mental health" screening to find these killers before they commit their acts of violence. Then, do we re-scan everyone once a decade? Once a year? Once a month? There are no answers.

But, it is my belief that the anti-gun people WILL use every avenue at their disposal to limit, then outlaw firearms in these United States. This recent tragedy is just another example of how they will politicize every event to further their agenda.
