To The Daily Sun,
President Obama issued his "gun show loophole" executive order Tuesday. Well that should take care of all the problems with criminals, terrorists and mental cases getting guns, right? Really though, how?
There is nothing new, nothing that could have prevented or will prevent those with evil intentions from getting guns. Every gun dealer is subject to the federal law requiring instant checks whether in a store or a gun show, period. Also, if a gun is purchased online, through the mail, it does not come to the buyer in the mail, by UPS or Fed Ex. It must come to a licensed dealer and the purchaser must go to that dealer where they are subject to the federal check system, period. Those of you jumping up and down cheering, you are being bamboozled again. This closes nothing, changes nothing it is only a political ploy on the part of Obama making the uninformed think he is doing something when in fact he has done nothing. Nothing except for election year posturing of course.
On another story, seems a large group of armed people, in protest to the conviction of a rancher and his son, have occupied a wildlife preserve area out in Oregon. I hope law enforcement has the good sense not to push the issue as they did at Ruby Ridge years back. As far as I can see there is no threat to anyone in just allowing these folks to just stay there until they get tired and go home on their own. I only know what was reported about the case in question that spurred the charges. It was reported the defendants burned off some invasive growth on their ranch but the fire got out of hand spreading onto federal lands. Convicted of arson first, the feds were not happy with the court sentence and appealed on the grounds of domestic terrorism. Feds won and father and son got five years and feds got their ranch. I just have to wonder if this wasn't just a bit excessive by the feds? There may be more to the story then I know about, still, who the heck were they terrorizing, jackrabbits?
