Surveys Show Good Citizens Want, and Will Dutifully Obey, Universal Background-Check for Gun Ownership; Home-Invaders Remain Opposed. Good Citizens will dutifully get into line to have their mental suitability checked by the Federal Government Department of Background-Checks before engaging in the lunacy of acquiring guns for self-protection rather than relying on what are now virtually instantaneous responses by law enforcement first-responders in response to distress calls to 911.
Surveys show that only a tiny minority of Americans (often known as home-invaders) actually object to, and would criminally defy, the proposed Universal Background-Checks to be a condition prerequisite to acquiring a gun by purchase from anyone or by gift from a spouse, parent, relative or friend.
. As President Obama made clear in his "I Am The State Address"
(formerly known as the now-archaic term "State of the Union Address"),
surveys have shown that virtually "all good citizens want, and will
dutifully obey, laws requiring a Universal Background-Check by anyone acquiring
a gun by any means regardless of whether by purchase in a
soon-to-be-taxed-out-of-existence gun shop or at soon-to-be-banned "gun
shows" or by gift or purchase from a friend, spouse
domestic partner, parent, sibling, or any other relative."
Obama stressed, "I've always supported the right to bear arms by all
citizens who have proven to the soon-to-be-established Federal Department of
Mental Health that they are mentally suited to 'bear
arms.'" He added, "This is especially important for
young women who, everyone knows, are more vulnerable to seductive arguments by
belligerent males that such vulnerable women 'need' a 'right' to 'arm'
themselves so they can behave as do belligerent males. We want vulnerable
females to be belligerent only when they're serving in combat. Good
citizens will always follow the Love-Thy-Enemies Commandment of Jesus:
'Whenever a responsible citizen's home is invaded by a person who has violated
the Universal Background-Check Law by acquiring and bearing a gun during such
home invasion, the responsible citizen must first dial 911 and then prepare to
turn the other cheek (or perhaps use scissors in self-defense if
the home-invader gets really aggressive) until law-enforcement quick-responders
Obama again quoted Jesus in describing the most compelling reason for good
citizens to comply with Universal Background-Check Laws: "You are
your Big Brother's Keeper."
of course, Obama reminded us that in addition to Jesus' Commandments that we be
our "Brother's" keeper and that we love our enemies, he also Commanded
that we always remember to include our neighbors in our circles of
Jim is a proud descendant of 18th Century criminal exiles from England who swam to the Outer Banks when the British ship taking them to a Georgia penal colony sank in a storm near Cape Hatteras. Having the prescience to prevent their descendants from becoming "TarHeels," they immediately migrated to Virginia, where, within just a few generations they worked their way up into poverty. Jim's grandfather was the first in the family tree to see the distant horizons, but his career was cut short by severe injuries he sustained when a cousin cut down the tree.
After a brief stint in the Amry (ours) following graduation from law school, he began his legal career in the state bureaucracy but was never able to break into the federal bureaucracy. Several years later, he entered the private practice of law and co-founded a small law publishing company. Later, finding the publishing of small laws unstimulating and finding his private practice too private to be lucrative, he began writing political satire/commentary. His greatest vice is taking himself too seriously.
Although he regularly teaches Continuing Legal Education courses to lawyers, he's too-often available through he Rubber Chicken Speakers Bureau to speak on politics, satire, etc., at luncheons, dinners, root canals, funerals, etc. His speaking fees are so outrageously high they border on criminal price-gouging, but as a free-market advocate, he defends his fees on the higher moral ground of charging whatever the traffic will bear.
