Chuck Schumer Pens Letter Asking Obama To Sue States That Allow Medical Marijuana

I’m kidding, of course. Democrats ignore laws that they don’t like, and, as typical in government, want massive new regulations due to one incident in typical over-reaction

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Sunday that he is penning a letter to President Obama asking him to close one of the gun-control loopholes that may have contributed to last weekend’s shooting at a meet-and-greet in Tucson, Ariz.

Loughner had tried to get into the Army, but was denied for “excessive” drug use.

That, Schumer said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” should have prevented Loughner from legally buying the Glock pistol allegedly used in the shooting rampage.

But the Army was not required to notify the FBI of the “excessive drug use” rejection, which would have let law enforcement add his name to the database that would show up when checking a customer purchasing a gun.

While more serious, this is how we end up with laws that make it illegal to carry an ice cream cone in you back pocket on Sundays, slippers can’t be worn after 10pm, and, yeah, the penalty for jumping off a building is death.

    I think this sort of thing is a downward spiral. When the military has to start accommodating civilian rules it gets complicated. That is why we have JAG lawyers, Military law does not coincide with Civil and Criminal law. Then again, this is just speculation. What the hell do I know about the law.

    I like the penalty for jumping off a building, but I think slippers should be allowed to be worn until at least 11:30. We should be protecting ourselves from ice cream cones as well. They can be dangerous.

    In all fairness… it may be a very good idea to have it be against the law for men to go topless on the Boardwalk. I have visions of Frank Costanza and his moobs.
