Today I find this article about how that issue is impacted by 0bamacare:
The takeaway: the language of the so-called Affordable Care Act protects the rights of doctors to poke their nose where it does not belong, but it also says that the patient is not required to answer:
“”Most people will think they have to answer. They don’t need to answer under the law,” he [Judge Napolitano] explained.”
A company in Georgia is claiming to have technology to make Smart Guns viable.
“According to Miller, had smart gun technology been available to Nancy Lanza, she could have programmed her guns so that only her fingerprint could have activated them; she could have enabled her son to shoot them at a firing range and disabled them upon returning home, or she could have enabled them for her son to use all the time, Miller said.
While I am not surprised that the whiny Newtown parents are actually hypocrites that don’t really care about child safety, it was shocking for me to see that they are so open about it:
“Newtown voters on Tuesday rejected town and school budgets that contained an extra $770,000 to cover the cost of hiring new police officers and security guards for Newtown’s public and private schools.
Legislative Council chairman Jeff Capeci said: “At the end of the day, Newtown voters thought it was too much of an increase.”
Yeah, it’s not like there’s childrens’ lives at stake or anything.
They had no problem loudly and obnoxiously agitating for unconstitutional state laws that will cost many millions of dollars to implement (and will end up bankrupt and ineffective like Canada’s now-scrapped registration scheme), but when it is coming our of their own wallets, child safety is apparently not important enough to pay for.
I shouldn’t be so hard on them I guess. It takes a lot of money to pay for their mansions, pleasure boats, and zoning restrictions that keep minorities out of Newtown. They might not have any cash leftover to protect their own kids.
I wonder if sad-sack crybaby Neil Heslin will drag his framed paintings to the town budget meetings to protest this dangerous breach of child safety?
In the wake of Sandy Hook, yet another organ of the lamestream media has resumed praying at the altar of the mythical Smart Gun, which is alleged to be unable to fire for anyone except an “authorized user”:
They aren’t the only ones yammering about the non-existent Smart Gun either:
By now, you must be aware of the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown CT. Details are still developing, but this is a horrible tragedy regardless of the specifics. (I will add a link when the facts are all known; for now, google it)
Disclaimer: I am close friends with the mother of one of the child victims, and with the child.
That said, obviously today was a long, difficult and painful day. Work was the last thing on my mind, as I heard my friend’s growing concern turn to fear and despair as the hours wore on and more details became known.
First it was an incident at a school. My friend learns this, and discovers it was the school her child was at, and heads to the school.
Sorry for the interruption in posting. Life happens, and we had a bad storm in Connecticut as well.
I was looking for a .22 handgun that I could use for cheap realistic practice. Since I already have a target pistol, this one was supposed to be a stand-in for a carry gun, with light weight and decent sights.
I considered a Walther P22 (which is actually made by Umarex). The rear sight of the P22 is adjustable for windage, but the only way to change elevation is to change the front sight. While they apparently modified the magazines to improve feed reliability, I still do not trust a gun with its slide made of Zamak. So the P22 is out.
