Now you can blame congress for not fixing them, especially after the supreme court struck down parts of the original.

The worry that a future president could declare a national emergency to get what they want done, and congress won't fund, is very real.


But it's very real regardless of rather he does it or not.

I mean he has declared the emergency, and is almost certainly going to go forward with attempting to build the wall using funds allocated that way. We will have to see how this plays out in the Courts, House and Senate. I can still say I think it is a worrying overreach of power, and I hope congress fixes it eventually. I really don't like the idea of a president being able to take funding from FEMA and the Department of Defense to use as he sees fit, including the ability to seize private property, when congress has specifically denied that funding. In this situation a president only needs to deny the opposition a 2/3rds majority and they can do a lot.

You want the president to overstep the intent of the law? I mean is it just that you want him to do this specific project? Do you want a more powerful presidency? Do you hope this will force congress to fix the law at hand?

It'll prompt a fix, and I'd much rather Trump overreach the law in a way that has no effect on me, and prompts the fix, than someone on the other side overreach the law to attack me.

That's Steven Wright according to one of the comments, real funny scenes though.
What would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive? Or if during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? The Organs would quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!

So apparently h.r. 8 universal background check bullshit had a requirement stripped from the bill that would had informed ice if an illegal alien failed a background check.
Just goes to show that shit like this is never about safety, just more of the same of regulating a negative enumerated right as a privilege. Background checks need to be stricken, a right delayed is a right denied.

5 repubs also voted to advance the bill out of committee even after their failed attempt to keep the reporting provision to ice intact. How about we just divide the US into 99% pro 2nd Amendment peeps and 1% anti gun peeps?

That could work as long as they sign a deal to move all anti-2nd amendment peeps to California then get the Pope to perform an excommuncation

So, when can we get a bill into office that allows cannons and such to not need a permit or unneeded paperwork and cost just to own? Because I would want a bill like that. Even though I dont have the money to own one.

From what I'm reading, that's only if they fire fixed ammo and/or you're firing explosive shells.

Unless state law says otherwise, a muzzleloading cannon is completely legal to own.

I don't know if this has been answered before but I have a question for gun control advocates, time and time again I've seen people on your side say "those who take medication for severe mental illness who shouldn't be able to own a gun", this sounds great on paper but my question is, how would this be enforced? What mental illness and what medication would prevent someone from buying a firearm? For example I take pills for having crippling anxiety, would I not be able to buy a gun? I mean it's not like my anxiety has made me want to harm others, and neither does my pills in fact they do the exact opposite, they calm me down and stop me from having a really bad panic attack. I ask this because I don't want people with mental health issues to be stigmatized any further and to be used to help push a political agenda.

You're in luck, 155mm uses a separate charge.
