The Boxer Rebellion, USA..

The (original) Boxer Rebellion, (1889 – 1901) also known as (Boxer Uprising) or (Yihetuan Movement,) was a proto-nationalist movement by the “Righteous Harmony Society” in China opposing foreign imperialism and Christianity. (Source Wikipedia)

The Boxer Rebellion in China did not end well, for either side. But then when you think about it, ..”conflicts” of any description, ..never do.

According to Webster: con·flict, A state of disharmony between incompatible or antithetical persons, ideas, or interests; a clash.

According to Webster: an·ti·thet·i·cal, being in diametrical opposition.

According to Webster: di·a·bol·i·cal, Appropriate to a devil, especially in degree of wickedness or cruelty.

Question: Why am I wasting my time and your time again this morning with meaningless distracting drivel?

Answer: Because the idiots that (can’t or won’t) play fair (by the rules) ..are again, (via cyberspace) ..i.e., (another, ..ya “gotta” forward this e-mail) ..to circulate more meaningless distracting drivel.

Mrs. BOXER introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

A BILL

To establish minimum standards for States that allow the carrying of concealed firearms.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of Americain Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘Common Sense Concealed Firearms Permit Act of 2011’.

SEC. 2. CONCEALED FIREARMS PERMITS.

(a) In General- Chapter 44 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by inserting after section 926C, the following:

‘Sec. 926D. Concealed firearms permits

‘(a) In General- Each State that allows residents of the State to carry concealed firearms shall–

‘(1) establish a process to issue permits to residents of the State to carry concealed firearms; and

‘(2) require that each resident of the State seeking to carry a concealed firearm in the State obtain a permit through the process established under paragraph (1).

‘(b) Requirements- In establishing a process to issue permits to carry concealed firearms under subsection (a), a State shall–

‘(1) ensure that a local law enforcement agency participates in the process; and

‘(2) at a minimum, require that an applicant for a permit to carry a concealed firearm–

‘(A) be a legal resident of the United States;

‘(B) be not less than 21 years of age;

‘(C) demonstrate good cause for requesting a concealed firearm permit; and

‘(D) demonstrate that the applicant is worthy of the public trust to carry a concealed firearm in public.

‘(c) Law Enforcement Agency Report- If a State establishes a process under subsection (a) that allows for an agency other than a law enforcement agency to issue permits to carry concealed firearms, the process shall require that–

‘(1) a local law enforcement agency submit to the agency responsible for issuing permits a written report that describes whether the applicant meets the standards of the State to carry a concealed firearm; and

‘(2) the agency responsible for issuing permits maintain a report submitted under paragraph (1) in the file of the applicant.

Disposition, i.e., status…

Introduced, ……………….………… January 25, 2011

Referred to committee, ……..…. (Not yet occurred)

Reported by committee, ………… (Not yet occurred)

Passed Senate, …………….……… (Not yet occurred)

Passed House, ……………….……. (Not yet occurred)

Signed by the president, ………. (Not yet occurred)

Prognosis: Just 3% of all Senate bills in 2009 – 2010 were enacted.

Cosponsor: None.

Personal Curiosity: Isn’t anyone out there familiar with the term; “RED HERRING?”

 

A red herring is a clue which is intended to be misleading, or distracting from the actual issue. For example, in mystery fiction, where the identity of a criminal is being sought, an innocent party may be purposefully cast in a guilty light by the author through the employment of deceptive clues, false emphasis, “loaded” words or other descriptive tricks of the trade. The reader’s suspicions are thus misdirected, allowing the true culprit to go (temporarily at least) undetected. (Source Wikipedia)

Prognosis: In (my considered, albeit “humble” opinion,) ..lying, ..via (misleading) information (Red Herrings) is unacceptable, regardless of your political affiliation or agenda.

The sky has been around forever, ..the sky is not falling, ..nor is it scheduled to fall in your lifetime.

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow

Crusader Rabbit…
