With something over 300-million guns in America it might be easier to have a database of those who don’t own guns. Maybe just a sign on the doors of those who don’t own guns. Something like “There’s No Guns in This House”.
In a Sunday color weekly cartoon, Chester Gould--creator of Dick Tracy--had this very thing. In a single-panel add-on titled "Crime Stoppers," he drew a suburban house with a sign placed in a front window, the sign reading: "This house has no firearms." Below the panel, Mr. Gould asked the question: "Would you place this sign in your front window?"
This was over fifty years ago.
All home owners/ renters without a weapon to protect themselves should be proud to sing about it.
All homes without firearms or a knife, or a baseball bat should be required to have the home painted like the Rainbow Whitehouse.

Whoopi brags that she owns a gun, but Rand fails to ask what kind it is. Want to bet it’s an auto-loader?
I bet you’re right. I was thinking the same thing.
That is exactly what I thought. This woman knows nothing!
Rand should've asked is it okay for the government (read SWAT) to look at her gun at 3:00 AM

Back in the day when passports were hand drawn on parchment with a quill pen and verification could take months via postal letter sealed with a wax stamp, bogus passports were easy to pass off as the real deal.
Could someone please tell me why all passports don’t have a bar or QR code on them, linking them to a secure database? It would seem an online read-only database of passport information, including biometrics and DNA data, would easily solve the forged passport issue. Of course the database should be managed by someone other than an incompetent government – someone like UPS or FedEx; who can tell me, at the click of a mouse, where my order of new shoelaces are, have been, and exactly when they will arrive at my door.
It’s the twenty-first century and we’re still using 15th century passport technology.
It has nothing to do with passport security. Passports do have bar codes and other security measures. However, a so called 25 year old refugee can scribble something in arabic on a piece of paper with a stick figure drawing and our wonderful government will let them in. If someone has a valid passport and is Christian or Jewish forget about it.
We are using modern technology and Syria was as well. When the city with its passport office was lost to ISIS, all Syrian travel to the US should have been stopped until new passports, which could be easily differentiated from the old, were issued.

If Montel, or the terrorist, bought their firearms in California THEY ARE REGISTERED!

Every superstition on this planet generates within me chuckles. Some rise to a great belly laugh. This is one.

All government related email should be automatically archived real-time to a bullet-proof array deep in Cheyenne Mt. The same with the body-cam video/audio that all elected and appointed cretins should be forced to wear 24/7.
When questions come up a rotating select committee of vetted and cleared regular citizens will review the data and pass on the pertinent stuff to a special Grand Jury.
When you can’t trust, or instantly fire, your employees – extraordinary measures must be taken.

Had the Nazi gassing of the Jews been on Movie Tone theater news in the forties the entire world would have demanded we storm in and wipe them out. The world sure has changed since the days of my father. :-(
Not a good comparison. An entire Country versus a group of crazies are completely different animals. The Country has more force making it more dangerous, but the target is clear. ISIS isn't nearly as capable as a country is of devastating, but is much more difficult to isolate and take out. Hence why ISIS is trying so hard to look big, tough, and dangerous - whereas the Nazis tried to hide the reality of their slaughter.
We will be complacent until the SHTF by ISIS over here.
While I agree with you on that, unfortunately there were idiots then too. I watched a Documentary the other day on Hitler, there were Americans on the white house steps carrying signs that said, "Peace Talks with Hitler, not war!" Granted, they didn't have video of what Hitler was doing, but the world has ALWAYS had idiots that just don't think properly
Yeah, it is amazing and very disturbing the response to this massacre....very sad and makes me SMH. Has the world lost its humanity?

Yep. GOA ‘Gun Owners of America’ ( http://www.gunowners.org ) I’ve been a life member of both for decades. Both have a purpose and both, in my opinion, do good for us gun owners.

Yep! Enforcing E-Verify ( http://www.uscis.gov/e-verify ) is by far the easiest, cheapest, simplest, and most logical answer. But, of course, neither side of the political isle wants to give anything but lip service to illegal entry into our country.
Every U.S. employer has Internet access. Thirty seconds online would verify the status of any prospective employee. Hire someone that fails E-Verify: First offence $10K fine. Second time $100K. Third time loose your business, go to jail, and forfeit your assets.
Seems the polling places could use this same E-Verify system on election day too.
What am I missing here? I know the liberals want voters, but why in heck are the conservative politicians not demanding E-Verify enforcement?
Liberal Democrats just want the votes so they can stay in power, suck money from the system, pretend they are better than everyone else, and tell people what to do. Rhinos have bought into the lie that it will get them votes, so they can have the same thing. To do this they will pretend to the voters they are conservative. The actual conservatives are either shouted down, or become quiescent after being beat down. A few like Cruz, actually try to keep making a difference. Democrats and Rhinos alike support cronyism for corporations to play for pay with the idea of getting kickbacks.
Progressivism is evil.
"I know the liberals want voters, but why in heck are the conservative politicians not demanding E-Verify enforcement? "
...and a WALL
To add to that - if someone fails e-Verify, that person should immediately be offered 1 of 2 options. Face a HUGE fine or be deported. Since all businesses are required, by-law, to use the system, they will catch the illegals and force them to only be able to accept option 2 since they won't be able to get work. If a business knowingly hires someone who fails e-Verify and is caught, that business should immediately be shut down and criminally investigated (to include the verification of all of its employees) - and only allowed to reopen once they are in compliance. The businesses are the ones making it easy on the illegal immigrants by not complying with the law - and it doesn't help the DoJ (along with "sanctuary cities") are also turning a blind eye.

And screwy Louie has nothing to say about the black on black murders. Nor does he say anything about the black on white murders, which are at least an order of magnitude greater than white on black.

First, I make Attila the Hun look liberal. Now, the quantum foam, and other scientific theories, may eventually be proven wrong but at least there’s ‘some’ testable evidence for their existence, not the several thousand year old yammering from a bunch of ignorant goat herders.

Terrifying? Good gravy! Only if you’re a ten year old. The dark ages called and wants their superstitions back.
Satan's greatest power is that he's convinced people that he doesn't exist.
Superstitions back? Why you libs create new ones everyday! You know , the whopper about matter blinking in and out of existence at the quantum level , or the whopper about all the matter in the universe being created from nothing when nothing exploded. Or the whopper that this matter that spontaneously created itself from nothing is forming itself into multiverses even as we speak. Or the whopper the super educated elite are desperately clinging to , that they can predict the weather a hundred years from now , even though they can't be trusted to record the correct temperature off a thermometer!
Do you think the Bible is superstition or do you think it is a lie? Revelations 12:9, Isaiah 14:12–15, Revelation 12:4. Jude 1:6, Ephesians 6:12, Matthew 8:16, Luke 11:20, 1 Peter 5:8, 1 Timothy 4:1.

And as it has happened each time we’re water restricted, our water rates have gone up. Many of the water districts raise their rates when they aren’t selling enough water. And, of course, after the drought the rates never go back down. :-(
They keep this up and visiting Castrofornia will be like suffering through Paris in August, aromatically speaking.

Note to Ms. Zarrell: There was already maximum gun control in that theater. The only one who appeared to have a gun was the criminal. Rachel my dear, if you haven’t noticed, criminals don’t abide by the law – that’s kind’a the definition of ‘criminal’. Might I ask, how would you suggest we get the criminals to comply with your proposed new gun control laws?
