First of all the polls mean nothing unless you know the exact wording. I've talked to a lot of people who say they approve of the act because they support background checks. But when I ask them about the other 55 laws of the act they shrug their shoulders and don't know anything about it. If you want to pass a law for background checks do it, but let the law stand on its own and be enacted through due process instead of sneaking it through in the middle of the night. And do it in a way that doesn't amount to back door registration. Additionally, she says we upstaters don't support the act so she's making a trip up here to educate us on gun safety. I'm all for gun safety and so is everybody I know. But the unSAFE Act has nothing to do with gun safety. I also like how the only parts of the law they say are working are the ones about increased penalties for gun crimes. That's the one thing us gun nuts always say we need. But again, it doesn't need to be tied to 55 other poorly worded and poorly conceived laws. Like making it impossible to buy ammo for my hunting rifle. Nobody sells it locally because all the manufacturers only make it once a year and when it's gone it's gone. Yet I can't buy it online either. So when Emperor Andy says I don't need 10 boolits to kill a deah, he really means I have to drive to Vermont or Pennsylvania to buy 10 boolits to kill a deah. Yeah, that makes us all safer.
