Brickbat: With Friends Like Him

|

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, has introduced a bill that could strip individuals merely suspected, not convicted, of domestic terrorism of their Second Amendment rights. In a press release, Rubio says the bill would create a database of individuals who were "the subject of a federal terrorism investigation within the last 10 years." When anyone on that list tries to buy a firearm, their name would be flagged and the federal government could delay the sale for up to 10 days and file an emergency petition to prevent the sale. The court would only have to find there was probable cause that the individual "is engaged, or has been engaged, in conduct constituting, in preparation of, in aid of, or relating to terrorism, or providing material support or resources therefore" to bar him from buying a firearm.

    2. It should be noted that even when GOPers do attempt gun control, they do it ‘wrong’ or more sensibly than gun control policies. A 30 round gun doesn’t kill anyone. A database full of them doesn’t intrinsically contain information about any crimes or murders. It’s just a lie about building a reservation system when you have no intent to hold reservations. It’s a thinly veiled attempt at people control. Rubio’s proposition is at least saying “We need a database of terrorists.”

      Now, I agree with the complaints of scope creep, abuse of power, and wasteful redundancy but at least the core of the premise, cataloging terrorists and preventing them from buying weapons, is aligned with a fundamental purpose of government.

      1. Than Democratic gun control policies that is.

  8. Back during the primaries I referred to Marco Rubio as Slick Marco, in reference to Slick Willy. He just struck me as so obviously a slick politician with no principles and no morals, just doing or saying whatever he thought people wanted in order to get elected.

  9. What could possibly go wrong with this?

    CB

  10. And this sort of thing is why the GOP would not coalesce around Rubio as an alternative to Trump in 2016 despite the Establishment’s late efforts (after Jeb! proved a non-starter, anyway).

    1. I ate some guacamole out of my JEB! branded Guac Bowle last night.

  11. What a dick.

  12. Rubio is such a RINO… “material support” = Speech?

  13. this great news thanks for sharing.

  14. Maybe this ridiculously unconstitutional law would get USSC to get off its ass on 2A? Or they’d go the 5th route and continue to ignore 2A.

  15. I earn over $ 15,000 by doing simple work online at home in my spare time only. I am a full time student and, just doing this job 3 hours a day, I earned $ 17,568 from this job in the first month. Very good work and making money is great.

  16. Gosh, remember when Rubio was the darling of the libertarian leaning conservatives? Gosh, what a maroon.

    Skwire’s Law: All politicians are asshats.

    1. Murphy’s addendum to Skwire’s law: All politicians are incompetent lying asshats.

  17. It might make sense if “terrorism” could be defined like murder, rape or assault with a deadly weapon. But it can’t and it won’t. It will be defined as whatever The Powers That Be want it to mean.
