What is wrong with you people I own lots of guns but you ought to read these things first before you allow yourself to be manipulated.This is the TRUTH “the exclusive right of States to regulate internal transfers of arms and national ownership, including through constitutional protections on private ownership.” The fact is, this treaty will affect the international arms industry. Groups that want to legally sell guns and fighter jets abroad will, indeed, have to do more to make sure that those guns and fighter jets don’t end up in the wrong hands. But your everyday average gun-owning American will not have any interaction with this treaty.

Gee! Rosemary needs to learn to do fact checking and use snopes. Passing this kind of tripe off as factual exposes a deep unquestioning belief in dogma.
Does the editor of the Daily Press ever do any fact checking?

Wuzarepublican, I don't trust anything our government does. Our president is running lies on Romney that he knows are lies. He acts like a king, or despot with the law and truth. He is all about oppression and control. Believe me, if he likes this treaty, it's bad for America. Plus, this treaty won't stop squat! Gun laws just help the bad guys and end up oppressing the weak even more.

“I don't trust anything our government does.”
17 July 2012 at 5:06 p.m.
Ha ha, no I'm not quite that bad airborne. Though we all might be getting closer to the conclusion we would be better off without the Federal Government than we would like to admit. It's hard to pick an example because there are so many. But I have one. What is it called when one doesn't follow the law? Is it called breaking the law? I think it is. So when our President tells Home Land Security to not follow the law in regards to imagination, and they all follow his dictate rather than the law, that is very very scary. That makes HLS his personal military force, not a law enforcement agency. So I am not calling for no government, yet. For now I am only wanting my freedom and liberty to be streagthened. I want my government to stop. Stop passing laws that are lauded as for my safety and protection or for my health. Their crushing me, and all Americans.

DHS is a cabinet department of the United States federal government, not a “military force,” not a “law enforcement agency.”nothing has been implemented yet. no new laws exist. This is only an announcement of what they plan to do in the future.What the policy is:Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice officials will: Review all cases pending before the immigration courts. “Low priority” cases may be administratively closed. “High priority” will be prosecuted more aggressively. No rules or regulations exist that certain cases will be considered “low” or “high” priority. In the future, review cases before immigration court proceedings are started. “Low priority” cases may not be referred to the court. Issue new rules or guidance on cases for people who have a final order of removal/deportation.
The following criteria should be satisfied before an individual is considered for an exercise of prosecutorial discretion:•came to the United States under the age of sixteen;•has continuously resided in the United States for a least five years preceding the date of this memorandum and is present in the United States on the date of this memorandum;•is currently in school, has graduated from high school, has obtained a general education development certificate, or is an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States;•has not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise poses a threat to national security or public safety;and•is not above the age of thirty.www.dhs.govhttp://www.scribd.com/doc/97202376/Ja…

“Deportation of illegal immigrants increases under Obama administration”
Since 2009, the annual average number of deportations has approached 400,000, according to the Department of Homeland Security. That’s double the annual average during President George W. Bush’s first term and 30 percent higher than the average when he left office.

Romney won't say he'll overturn immigration order
The Republican presidential candidate was asked several times in an interview on CBS' “Face the Nation” whether he would overturn the executive order issued Friday if he's elected in the fall. He refused to directly answer.
“It would be overtaken by events,” Romney said when pressed for the second time by moderator Bob Schieffer during the interview taped Saturday while the former Massachusetts governor's bus tour stopped in Pennsylvania.
He explained the order would become irrelevant “by virtue of my putting in place a long-term solution, with legislation which creates law that relates to these individuals such that they know what their setting is going to be, not just for the term of a president but on a permanent basis.”

Maybe we'll get another Reagan type amnesty from one or the other.
17 July 2012 at 8:56 p.m.
I guess we'll have to disagree. I heard the President say that some people wouldnt be deported if they are hear illegally. DHS said yes sir! I think my evaluation is closer to the truth. I believe in law enforcement discretion that belongs to the immediate law enforcement officer. They can decide on a case by case basis. When it comes from the top it's illegal as hell. We have laws, and yea, they could be better. But that's where the people's representatives have left it. Every dictator in history claims to be above the law when it suits his lust for power and votes. They sell it to the people as justice. But it's not. Can't shine a turd airborne. He did what he did.
17 July 2012 at 9:58 p.m.
Disagree all you like, you're the one who said, “I don't trust anything our government does.” If you had read the memo, you might realize that there is no disagreement. Of course, that was a government memo and not to be trusted.You're beef is with the president using the authority of his office. Your “evaluation” of a policy change.Well, the new boss is the same as the old boss and the next boss will be the same as the current boss, no matter which corrupt political party they come from. A plutocratic corporatist and the top executive with what you might consider to be dictatorial powers. The system insures it. Live with it, leave it or change it if you can. Good luck.

I think you made my point. I'm not quite that pessimistic yet though. Lol. Good talking with you airborne Have a good day tomorrow
19 July 2012 at 8:06 p.m.
Lol, okay here's another example. The ATF director just told all the employes of the ATF that if they go outside the chain of command with complaints there will be consequences. The words chain of command is a military term. Sounds like they view themselves as military rather than law enforcement.
27 July 2012 at 10:15 a.m.
Law enforcement is run the same as military. In the military, the Provost Marshal is chief of police and there is a chain of command from Provost Marshal on down. In LE you have a chain of command from the chief/director on down with captains, lieutenants, sergeants, agents and so on. Neither organization is in any way democratic but more dictatorial.

(“Hillary Clinton signing the United Nations Small Arms Agreement on July 27.”)
Let us know when she signs it, today, and then when it will be brought before the Senate for ratification by two-thirds of the 100-member Senate, or 67 votes. Only then does a treaty become law and well over 50 Senators have already voiced opposition.
