Charles "Chuckie" Schumer on Gun Control

‘Common sense’ gun-control debate lasts less time than it takes to reload a 9mm --

It didn’t take long after the Tucson shootings for New York Sen. Chuck Schumer to propose sweeping new gun-control legislation. It’s supposed to “strengthen” background checks, but as The Daily Caller reports, it'll more likely piss off anyone who’s never actually been found guilty in a court of law. “The Fix Gun Checks Act of 2011 would greatly expand the definition of those legally prohibited from owning firearms to include anyone who’s ever been arrested — even if never convicted or found guilty — for drug possession within a five-year period.” Alleged gunman Jared Lee Loughner admitted to smoking weed. According to Schumer’s “rational gun-control,” ergo, that means anyone arrested for doing drugs, for that bong that wasn’t actually yours or for Tweeting that you were going to get “ripped” tonight, is tantamount to planning a psychotic bloodbath. Everyone agrees that only "law-abiding" citizens should have guns, but who would have thought Schumer would try to change the definition of “law-abiding.”
