    Look it is making a point, don't mess with their guns.
    A point I agree with 100%.
    Cars are used irresponsibly everyday by millions of people, and kill more people annually, but I don't see us outlawing or restricting horsepower, or lowering speed limits, or making it manditory to have built in breath analyzer before cars will start.
    More kids killed that way than by a gun every year.
    So this obviously is not about protecting people, so what is it about?

    Limiting the degree in which we can defend ourselves? Why would our own gov't not want us to be able to defend ourselves? Unless... They know something we don't. Unless... They don't want us to be able to one day defend ourselves against them.
    Now go ahead and make fun of me for saying that, but where I come from- if it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, then son, it's a duck!

    seems to be what they are pushing for. all in office seems to think they are our rulers instead of employees.

    @NTBFW Yea, think that one out. Instead of hurling snarky quips at each other on here we could do it in a prison cafeteria. The remedies that are in place need to be used. Voters can use them if only they start to think and understand the importance of what is at stake. In absense of that making it a crime would make little difference. It is in certian instances, and those laws are largely unenforced.

    @PoliticalSpice I am thinking about presidents and legislators should be prosecuted for violating the constitution. Regardless of party lines.

    How about the lawmakers stop making stupid laws they know are not going to pass and focus on their JOBS. Must be nice to have so much free time and resources to waste while on the taxpayer dime.

    Republicans just do not get it for some reason and this right wing State Representative is a prime example of what is wrong with the GOP. Making it illegal to debate or propose a law you do not agree with is some thing I would have expected in Nazi Germany back in the 1930's. We do have a 1st Amendment right that affords us freedom of speech.

    And disarming the populace, searching their homes to make sure their guns are stored how you view them as properly stored etc are no worse then what this guy is trying to do. Trying to restrict rights is not the answer to a problem, all it does is causes more problems.
    Its fair play to be honest, you try to take our rights we try to take yours.

    @Thunderchicken Absurdity is often a common denominator of a progressive agitator who likes to restrict the freedoms of the lawabiding people in this country.

    Gay, Guns, Illegals. ALL smokescreens used by both the left and right to divert attention from the truth. That truth is that our government gives more money to dictators around the world to salt away than it would cost to make each and every citizen of the USA a millionaire. That truth is that neither side wants to admit that their party is bought and paid for by Wall street evidenced by our tax code of loopholes, dodges and subsidies for the ultra rich. That truth is our government is corrupt to the core. But greater truth is that all they have to do to keep MORON liberals and conservatives diverted is trot out the Gays, Guns and Illegals.

    What a silly gesture and waste of legislative resources. Couldn't this guy have used his opportunity to introduce a useful bill, like fix a bridge or something?

    This is absurd and reflects the polarization in this country.
    Any measure that restricts... Some gun control is good, some regulations are good. Bans are bad. Regulations, accountability, that's good. But this bill doesn't distinguish and even if it did it's our first amendment rights to say we should ban guns. Doesn't mean it's a good idea, doesn't mean it's even constitutional to do so, but we have a right to express that opinion if we want.

    If you don't expect it to pass, why waste tax payer money on even introducing it? Honestly, any gun control law will eventually move to the courts and be challenged all the way to the Supreme Court...which will likely be considered unconstitutional...but we did think that with Obamacare also....

    If we held this law's principle up consistently in regard to all Constitutional rights, it would at least put most politicians where they belong....behind bars.
