More government idiocy

There's a house bill that's been proposed to our state senate that just blows my mind.

http://www.msnewsnow.com/story/24445740/proposed-legislation-would-require-every-ms-ammunition-sale-to-be-recorded

Fortunately, we have a pretty good governor that says he'll veto it. Also, the state legislature has been pretty solid in their pro-2A stance, so I don't see this gaining any traction.
But still.....I don't like it even being proposed. Idiots.....

    I like your governors comments. Short, and to the point. And no hint of compromise.

    Yeah, I'm pretty pleased with him, overall. He's gotten several big businesses to build factories/plants in the state, he doesn't hold back on his thoughts and opinions, and as you can tell, he's a gun guy.

    Instead of tracking guns and ammunition, why not just track convicted criminals? Include a long period of rather intensive probation with ever second misdemeanor, and an even longer one with every felony, to begin after their jail or prison sentence, thus keeping a government finger to the pulse of those people proven to be disposed to commit crimes, and leave the rest of us alone.

    No chance at all that that information could be used for identity theft, or any other nefarious purpose.

    Those records would include the description of the kind and caliber of the cartridges sold; the name, address, license number, and social security number of the person making the buy; and the date of sale.

    I work closely with probation/parole and I can tell you the only system more broken than the judicial is probation/parole systems. I could go for days about it, but each P.O. here averages about 200 people under their "supervision" and sometimes more.

    If you are on probation in another state and moved here, there is no direct line of accountability for your whereabouts. If you forget to show up or decide to live elsewhere...oops. Absconded parolee.

    It's sick.

    You provide less info to get welfare checks.

    Ever watch the movie, "Wedlock"? Might be an idea whose time has come.

    Worse than that here, there have been many high profile cases of parolees committing Felony after Felony. The most recent was a guy out on parole for stabbing his wife half to death. I'll let you guess who he finished the job on.

    The prisons are overfull and so are the jails with convicts waiting on a bed in prison. So they just keep turning 'em loose.

    You missed ( or maybe you didn't, sorry if I'm mistaken) a small part of that:

    Those records would include the description of the kind and caliber of the cartridges sold; the name, address, license number, and social security number of the person making the buy; and the date of sale.

    Those records would then be open to any member of the public at any time.

    Available to anybody at any time???
