Is that handguns, or does it include shotguns and rifles too?

The Infamous Ignatz

Unless a person buys a gun online and then picks it up directly from a private seller in those states that allow such transfers, the gun has to be shipped to an FFL. When they pick the gun up from the FFL they go through the same background check they do with any other purchase.

--“You’d have to assume that if you are a prohibited purchaser, you are aware of that loophole, and that’s how you’re going to get a gun,” Ms. Brown said.--

I would only "have to assume" that if I were an anti-gun asshole who would ignore the fact that criminals who steal things and who know lots of other criminals who steal things might have easier and alternate sources of illegal guns than what the shitbird assumes.

Lots of CYA for politicians... Jussie wanted to "enhance his career," not help a preplanned anti-lynching law get passed for a certain Pres candidate.

Really that's their final answer it just so happened that Booker and Harris had that anti lynching law on the docket. Ps how much egg does superintendent Johnson have on his face.

MissMarple2

henry,

True, but we haven't heard all of the evidence yet.

HA! Police captain says all hate crimes get the same attention in Chicago, but YOU gave it more attention. (talkiing about the press.)

MissMarple2

"When we discovered the real motive, quite frankly, it pissed everyone off."

Miss M, so they made this one up?

MissMarple2

henry,

The press seems to be trying to make Smollett a victim, too.

—-easier and alternate sources of illegal guns——

Exactly Ig. That’s one of the ‘tells’ for me that the speaker is really after guns and not disarming criminals.

What does his salary have to do with Trump, since that is clearly what he was aiming for?

The Infamous Ignatz

Not only that, but how does getting beat up by a couple of deplorables increase his salary on a show where practically every character is already black?

Narciso79

It's a ridiculous argument, it's full Gotham over there.

henry

the Chitown shuffle, as seen in The Sting. We are the mark.

rse

The police chief is staing as a fact that smullett took advantage of racism. No questioning of racism or that smullett is the one alleging such animus among trump supporters.

So the police department continues the sliming.

F them too.

clarice

Iggy, you thought he was a logical thinker? Perhaps in his pea brain he thought if he was a well-publicized victim of homophobia and racism and Trumpists his audience demand would increase.And if he didn't get a raise he'd claim the producers were also haters.

Narciso79

Tom Wolfe never tackled Chicago because it cant be parodied. This like when they were rioting in altgeld gardens when the IOC was deciding.

See if supt intendent had self awareness, well he wouldn't have hired but failing that he would apologize for having humored this scam

Seems logical to me. Who ever heard of him before this? He could'a been a folk hero.

Ka-ching!

The Infamous Ignatz

From the last thread;

"Why are men willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars for a robot that obeys their smallest command?" the feminists asked rhetorically. "A female robot cannot say no to something that the man wants, if she is not programmed to do so", the feminists complained.

Not sure these feminists have quite thought this all the way through.
They want freaks who won't take no for an answer prowling around for real women instead of sex dolls?

Extraneus

But since he hasn't cooperated, how would they know his motive? The bros?

Narciso79

He paid the brothers with a check, like I say beyond parody.

matt - deplore me if you must

Well, another day, another Democrat scandal.

Petraeus posted a brief analysis of the Munich drone setup. Apparently Frau Merkel offered a point by point rebuttal to Trump and all of the seals clapped.

He did point out that the Russians and Chinese are doing their best to torpedo NATO and the West. I would like to see some specifics. But then, the Russians always been able to suborn enough crooks and commies to get a lot of what they want.

Thing is, I don't see anyone on the horizon like Trump. Now he has several in his own party against his emergency order. The courts will have their say and that will be that.

The Dems are now publishing articles on how cramped and inhuman the holding centers are. Since they are being overwhelmed, what did they expect? They are creating their own narrative.

As long as that wall doesn't get built and the threat is there, illegal immigrants will go for broke trying to cross. It is sort of like the rush to buy guns during the Obama administration. Threaten to take something away and people leap at the chance. Sheer idiocy.

As to baddies with guns, the ATF has a long list of them but is only now, in the face of some of these crimes, getting serious about going out and confiscating them.Most of the rest are through straw buyers, I am guessing.

The Infamous Ignatz

Well, he's got real name recognition now. Unfortunately for him it is in the form of about 50,000 internet memes and I'm not sure his name won't end up a verb.

Narciso79

See what I mean about the right lizard problem, re the executive order.

Angela should be embarrassed, but again that's umpossible she should have one of those soldiers training with wooden rifles outside the conference center.

MissMarple2

Seems to me that the motive being "to get a bigger paycheck" was less inflammatory than "to help Booker and Harris get their anti-lynching law passed".

The question is whether we will ever see those phone records, and whether this is designed to take Harris and Booker out prior to the debut of the lovely Michelle.

It's Chicago, so who knows?

I have seen two rumors re: Smollett:

1. He is Kamala Harris's nephew (his mom's maiden name was Harris)

2. His sister is dating Cory Booker

Both are false, as far as I can tell. His mother's maiden name was Harris, but she is originally from New Orleans, and Cory Booker is dating someone else, and I think Smollett's sisters are both married.

Just in case you run across them in your travels.

Here is the NYT blowing sunshine at the Smollett "acting/activist" family back in 2016. Cooing over their friendship with Angela Davis, etc:

Narciso79

He couldn't come up with a couple grand in cash, where was it going?

Porchlight

Here is another monetary motive (sort of) for Smollett - raising money for Bennett College in Atlanta:

https://www.reddit.com/r/The_Donald/comments/at1lf5/there_goes_her_campaign/egy7igy/

There was apparently a GoFundMe to help raise funds for the college that Jussie was promoting, and after the "attack" it brought in millions.

henry

Narciso, WI SC race this April.

Ok missed that they always seem to be going on,

BTW the cops can just report what Smollett told the Nigerians his motive was. It doesn't have to be the real motive at all, and they can avoid serious blowback.

Re: my 11:35, the local station that runs the Buck Sexton Show live came back from the 7PM news break last night with some unlistenable NPR-ish soliloquy from some woman going on and on about thinking about her relationships and yadda yadda yadda, to some tinkly electric piano soundtrack.

The Baloney Detection Kit: Carl Sagan’s Rules for Bullshit-Busting and Critical Thinking

Captain Hate

From Iggy's 11:47:

"Today, opioids are killing Americans at a much faster rate than AIDS or crack, but you’d be forgiven for not noticing. It’s not a crisis that has interested Washington much. There’s been no effort to rein in the pharmaceutical companies that flooded communities with opioids. Nobody seems to be rethinking our current rehabilitation and treatment models for addicts, which clearly aren’t working. Both the Congress and the White House seem to have run out of ideas, or even the desire to think of new ones."

I need matt or someone else with more insight than I have to address this. Isn't the problem more that doctors aren't following up with their patients enough to make sure they aren't getting hooked than blaming the pharmaceutical companies who are only reacting to the demand? I know Rush got hooked on them and is now clean so some sort of treatment must be working. Also not everyone's physiology makes them prone to addiction; mine for example.

Aw. I posted on this a while back.

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by two Pennsylvania boys and an environmental group seeking to stop U.S. President Donald Trump from rolling back regulations addressing climate change, saying the court does not have power to tell the White House what to do.

Disagreeing with a judge overseeing a similar case in Oregon, U.S. District Judge Paul Diamond in Philadelphia ruled on Tuesday that the Constitution does not guarantee what the boys and the Clean Air Council called a due process right to a “life-sustaining climate system.”

CH @ 12:05

One explanation I read that explained the increase in opioid addictions and deaths is that thanks to the Obamacare Medicaid expansion a lot more people were able to get prescriptions for them. Someone should do a study to see if the increase in opioid addictions/deaths is higher in the states that accepted the Medicaid expansion compared to the states that did not.

Btw, the Senate passed the anti lynching bill on 12/19/18. The smollett hoax was staged on 1/29/19.

CH, the “opioid crisis” pisses me off generally.

Someone needs to explain how big pharma is to blame. ‘Cause so far I ain’t buyin’ it. There are numerous illicit sources.

Similar to guns, the only thing the activists and gummint seem willing to do is make life increasingly difficult on the people who aren’t the problem. My 87yo MIL with crippling OA and commensurate pain gets dose-limited on her Vicodin and regularly drug-tested to assure she hasn’t become a small-scale trafficker. It’s nonsense.
