So what rights that the leftists actually value did the anti gunterds give up in this compromise?Read More ANSWER: NONE! So which of these new laws actually apply as a punishment to the criminals ANSWER : NONE! So which of these laws will reduce violence ANSWER: NONE!

In analyzing the typical constitutional claim, there are a series of three steps that must beRead More followed in a logical sequence. We will bypass the first 2 because in this case in Maryland, we see the government completely fails to address #3 yet again! 3. The third step is to apply the standard of review to the particular facts of the case. This may involve an analysis of the government's reasons for its action, including the nature of the problem the government is trying to solve, what the government hopes to achieve by the solution it has devised and the connection between what the government is trying to achieve (the ends) and what it has done (the means). In general, the sounder the connection between the governmental ends and means, the more likely a court will be to find the government has acted in a constitutional manner. So the GOVERNMENT is to verify that its actions were a valid logical attempt to solve a problem by its actions…that’s ok. So where again is a law, that doesn’t affect the actual criminals, solve any alleged problem? Oh thats right, the politicians simply ignore settled and codified law, Haynes vs US 390, 85, 1968 & the 5th amendment. In short: No law is applicable, that requires one to violate their 5th amendment right of no self incrimination! So 85% of all gun control laws require one identify themself, as licenses, background checks, registration, etc... Which means that ALL of the 10 categories of bad guys as defined in sec 922 of the 1968 Federal Gun Control Act, cant be punished by 85% of the existing gun control laws that require one to IDENTIFY THEMSELF! So again, how many of these new laws require one to identify themself........MORONS!

Rick Catino July 23, 2014 at 02:57 pm
Raymay, it sounds to me like a handful of people are getting together periodically and privately toRead More discuss the matter which most certainly is their right. Since there has been nothing in the Patch, Transcript or Mercury, I'm guessing they are not (yet?) organized into a public forum. I'm assuming (and that is all it is) that the group includes the man who ran unsuccessfully against McGlynn in the last election, since he posted on the Patch advocating charter change meetings a few weeks ago before the thread mysteriously disappeared. If my assumption is correct, I'd have to ask why he would campaign for a Plan A mayoral seat, lose, and now advocate charter change, all in the course of a year. But then again, I'm just a curious guy...

Serpico July 23, 2014 at 06:33 pm
The more people I meet, or the more evil I see people do, I'd say I dont like people so much as aRead More whole, but I love my dog. I wouldn't own a pit just for the homeowners insurance upcharge. I'm not an expert so I don't know enough to make a definitive factual statement. I am however, an objective observer and troubleshooter as my god given talent and success in my job. Lots of us see these horrific stories. The media does focus and sensationalize on a dog bite or attack more if a pit is involved. It is a legitimate question to ask as to whether this breed has impulsive aggressive tendencies as a part of its genetic make up or characteristic behavior, such as beagles have a tendency to bolt and wander if they get out and run free. What actually brings that out seems to be the bone of contention here. The problem with these awesomely powerful dogs is that when they go full throttle, they just do not stop, and the the incredible jaw strength is hard to defend against in a local, neighborly setting. I respect their tenacity, and when they react according to their natural, genetic response when they feel provoked or justified in the well documented dog / family pack mentality to defend that pack or territory, they are doing nothing wrong in the sense of who they are. But when they make a bad decision, really bad things happen. Lowlifes that encourage and train aggressiveness around this trait are despicable. I hate Mike Vick and hope he meets an extremely horrific and long, painful death sooner than later. Good and loving owners cannot make excuses if their wonderful family pet goes apeshit and hurts or kills a perceived threat that was, in fact, not a threat. I know several people who have pits as family dogs and they are just as loyal and loving as any other. I also have neighbors who have been either themselves or their dogs attacked, unprovoked, while just walking their non pit breed on the public streets around the neighborhood.

That's a good piece of advice.

Mad as hell... July 21, 2014 at 07:45 am
Any dog can go crazy wanting to attack another dog but as I've recounted here many times when aRead More pitbull attacked me and my leashed dog Max. Max was no small dog...over 100 lbs at the time...and was ready to rumble with this little bitch pitbull but I saw the futility in it. Without going too much into detail let's just say the little bitch died from it's injuries a few months later while suffering the whole time getting there. Her owner was a dirt bag who didn't take it to the vet after I cracked and broke several of the little bitch's ribs when I launched it through the air with a swift but solid shin bone kick to the ribs. I can still see it in my mind's eye how it flew through the air a good 15' before landing on the road and spinning on it's side into the ditch.
