    -bans on numerous semi-automatic weapons.

    -bans on standard-capacity magazines

    -bans on personal sales, thereby personal ownership (the old question; if I can't sell it, do I own it? )

    There's your answer. If your looking for a jumping off point for a debate, I have none. I'm not going to debate the subject, but those parts of the bill are unacceptable.

    Obama wants your guns.

    He's so crafty that he's waited 5 years to do so. He didn't do it when he was first elected...because people would have expected him to do that.

    Right after he does that, he's gonna ban free speech and voting. But he'll do that 17 days before he elects himself king in 2016.

    Mwa-ha-ha-ha.

    Oh.

    So basically the system worked. Obama isn't the antichrist, no one has invaded Rochester to take your guns and you have the same amount of freedom as you did in 2005.

    Obama did the right thing leaving this issue alone during his first term. Obviously the massacre at Newtown and overwhelming public anti-gun rights sentiment made dealing with this issue unavoidable for him.

    The thing is gun control is a waste of taxpayer and law enforcement resources. Same way all these asinine anti-ilegal immigrant laws the tea partiers try to introduce every election year are. Even if guns were banned and the 2nd Amendment was overturned there are already so many firearms out there we're talking over 250 million privately owned firearms in circulation nationwide. Just a waste of time.

    Has it occurred to you to read it? Or do you just always rely on guys from a Jets message board to do your political homework for you?

    Not to get off topic here, but the Tea Party just wants the Federal Govt to enforce the immigration laws that are currently on the books.

    Marco Rubio doesn't want that, he wants to reform immigration.

    Who qualifies what is mentally incompetent? How does being mentally incompetent deny you of 2nd amendment rights?

    You can be deemed mentality incompetent by virtue of previous actions or behavior. Happens all the time.
    The nut file needs to be merged with the can't have a gun file.
