Re: “Gun Control

This is the biggest load of poppycock I've seen this week. Almost NONE of this will do a damn thing to reduce "gun violence".

Just for example: The "Assault rifle" hoax: Created by Josh Sugarmann, PR director for HCI (AKA the Brady Campaign, currently known as Everytown) for the sole purpose of advancing their agenda (complete abolishment of privately owned firearms); by attacking "niche firearms", turning the public against those, then building on that. In order to do this, lie, confuse people, avoid facts, lie some more.
Above all, AVOID facts- such as the fact that such firearms were used in less than 1% of violent firearm-related crimes (a number that has held steady for over 30 years). But they're "Scary-looking" and a good liar can easily confuse people as to what these firearms actually are, so be sure to LIE!
That, btw, is a summary of Sugarmann's paper- which can still be found online at his website.
Any one concerned about the facts would have discovered that in doing basic research; the fact you didn't mention the origins of the AWB hoax suggests either you're sloppy or biased.
Basically- if you're going to shill for the gun-ban lobby, have the honesty to openly admit it.

Re: “Advocates Say the Richmond Jail Is Releasing Undocumented People to Immigration Enforcement

I have heard ICE out RVA expressing their opinions.
Basically, they want open borders, and regard any attempt by America to control her borders to any extent as "racism".
I have not heard them express a desire to see our Southern neighbors adopt similar policies, nor have I heard them express any interest in those nations resolving the issues mentioned by Mark.
In short, they demand America surrender one of the basic rights of any sovereign nation, in order that America remain a safety valve for Latin America's sociopolitical problems.
