WHAT BULLSHIT!!!!!!!  The law should be amended to leave law-abiding citizens alone, but if CRIMINALS– who are denied the right to own a gun– are caught with more than 7 rounds, an additional penalty should apply.

One HAS to wonder why anti-gun people refuse to look at the facts, but keep spewing bogus data supplied to them by other anti-gun people!  The ONLY unbiased source of gun crime is the FBI database on crime.  It is THE source from which all the Brady, Mother Jones, and other “statistics” are derived, twisted, skewed, and selective data omitted.  I think this graph tells the real story.

 

Poll: Nationwide Support For Medical Marijuana Legalization At All Time High


Poll: Nationwide Support For Medical Marijuana Legalization At All Time High
New York: NY: Nearly nine out of ten
Americans — including 80 percent of self-identified Republicans —
say that marijuana should be legal if its use is permitted by a
physician, according to nationwide Fox News telephone poll of 1,010 registered voters. The poll was
conducted under the direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and
Shaw & Company Research (R) and possesses a margin of sampling
error of ± 3 percentage points.

According to the poll, released last week, 85 percent of voters
agree that adults ought to be allowed to use cannabis for
therapeutic purposes if a physician authorizes it. The total marked
an increase in support of four percent since Fox last polled the
question in 2010 and is the highest level of public support for the
issue ever reported in a scientific poll.

Despite the overwhelming public support for medical marijuana
law reform, legislation in Congress to amend federal law to allow
for its use in the 18 states which
permit it —
House Bill 689, the States’ Medical Marijuana Patient Protection
Act
— only has 16 co-sponsors out of a total of 435 House
members. The bill has been referred to the House Energy and
Commerce Committee, Subcommittee on Health and to the House
Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland
Security, and Investigations — neither of which have scheduled the
bill for a public hearing.
