THE DEATH of 20 little children and six courageous adults at Newtown, Conn., has managed to do what no other killing spree could - it has caused heretofore wuss politicians to take a stand and speak out about the need for sensible laws controlling the access to assault weapons and mega-capacity ammunition clips, and it has galvanized national public opinion in support of these efforts.

I detest that man. I wonder how many times he plead down a "gun crime" in order to get someone to snitch on a neighbor when he was DA.

Quote: *1. Ban the sale, distribution, import or possession of all assault rifles. The
measure should not just reimpose the 1994 bill, which had too many loopholes and left out too many killing machines. For example, the Bushmaster rifle that was used at Newtown and again Christmas Eve to kill two firemen and wound two others in Webster, N.Y., was not classified as an assault rifle, despite the fact it rapid-fires .223 high-velocity bullets that travel at the speed of 3,000 feet per second. The new legislation must be broadened to include killing machines like the Bushmaster.

* 2. Illegalize the sale, distribution, import and possession of high-capacity magazines and clips of more than 10 bullets.

* 3. Close the gun-show loophole so that anyone buying a firearm there must go through the background check that a purchaser at a licensed gun shop is required to do.

* 4. Ban the sale of guns on the Internet, where a background check is impossible.

* 5. Mandate that all states report anyone with mental illness to the federal NIC system so that a background check will disclose it and thereby prevent that individual from buying a gun. This will require legislation that more clearly defines "mental illness" and gives the U.S. attorney general the power to withhold criminal and juvenile-justice money from states that refuse to comply.

This simply drawn, clear legislation would be hard to oppose for anybody who is even slightly reasonable. No one has ever been able to give the rationale that a law-abiding citizen needs an assault rifle or a magazine or clip with more than 10 bullets. A significant majority of Americans agree with banning them. Though doing so would not stop mass murderers, it would definitely limit the amount of carnage they could inflict. Jared Loughner, the Tucson killer, was stopped only when he paused to clear his weapon and put another 30-round clip in. It is absurd to realize that the murderer in Aurora fired 70 shots in under a minute and possessed a 100-bullet magazine.

Requiring a background check before anyone can buy a gun is basic common sense. Without this change, any person - even someone who has been in and out of a mental institution - can get a deadly firearm at a gun show or over the Internet, because these purchasing options are not subject to a background check.

In a recent poll conducted by Frank Luntz, the conservative pollster seen on Fox News, 74 percent of NRA members and 87 percent of all gun owners said they favored such checks' being required.

Same talking points. You must be an unreasonable person if you don't agree.

Dangerous ground for the mental illness clause. I bet Obamacare will come up some new outlandish definitions of mental illness to include as broad a database as possible. Hint -- don't EVER tell the doc you're just not feeling well at the moment.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

I wouldn't worry too much about Rendell too much longer. He'll probably have a heart attack soon from years of eating cheese steaks and we'll never have to hear his bull shit again.

I've met Fast Eddie a few times over the years. He's a likable, engaging fellow in person, but his politics are more disgusting than his cheese-whiz stained neckties.

He did manage to bring some life back to a dying center-city though, albeit at the expense of more neglected Philly neighborhoods. Like any big-city democrat, he's a gun-grabber through-and-through. His commentary should surprise or sway no one.

I love the reasons for banning online sales. Somebody seems to have forgotten (or ignored) that online sales go to FFLs in the buyers area.

Once I was working out at the Sporting Club, which is a high-end gym in the historic Bellevue-Statford Hotel. I used to live on Chestnut just a couple of blocks over.

I'm done weightlifting; go over to the lockerroom, shower, go back and get my things.

Close the locker door and it's Ed Rendell in the buff, yapping up a storm.


I had only been in Pennsylvania just a few months, and didn't know who this joker was, but I did notice a handler in the lockerroom in a suit talking away on a cell phone. I thought that was odd. Usually a men's locker room is dudes, rarely talking, getting changed and leaving and then there's a dude walking around aimlessly yapping away on a cellphone and then talking to Ed.

Found out later that afternoon it was the governor of our state. I was mortified.


Glad I only made smalltalk and didn't go off on some shit that would have made him not shut up--the guy does like to talk. A lot. And I've seen him get angry really quick. There's a 60 Minutes interview he did on gaming in Pennsylvania and he looked like he wanted to slit Leslie Stalh's neck when she accused him of feeding gambling addicts addictions.
