When a Mississippi mother sought help because she couldn’t afford to get supplies for her diabetic daughter’s insulin pump, state Rep. Jeff Guice (R) was less than helpful.

Nicole Nichols wrote to Guice and three other legislators when the company that usually supplied them with the needed supplies began to outsource their products to a company that is not covered under Medicaid. Nichols, like other struggling parents, are having a hard time coming up with the more than $2,000 a month needed to keep her 8-year-old daughter, Bella, healthy.

“We have recently begun having a lot of problems with Medicaid/CHIPS coverage for the essential diabetes supplies needed, not only to keep our kids healthy, but to keep them alive,” she wrote. “Is there someone in the legislature that can and will help these children stay healthy? They must have these medications and supplies which administer the medications to stay healthy and, quite honestly, alive!”...

“I am sorry for your problem,” he wrote. “Have you thought about buying the supplies with money that you earn?”

“He is a legislator within the state of Mississippi,” she said. “That he would not only think that way, but have the gall to hit the send button to a parent of a child and somebody who is not advocating just for my own child but for all of these kids.”

Both Bella and her father have diabetes and the family has a hard time getting by financially.

When asked for a comment, Guice told the Clarion-Ledger, “I don’t do interviews.”

No. You want me to be sad that we don't live in a post-scarcity society with health and entertainment on tap? At least we have free will and can choose one or the other.

If everyone was a perfectly responsible robot I'm sure we'd all eat healthy foods, buy medicines, and live to see 100. Instead we eat what we want, drink what we want, fuck who we want, buy Xboxes and starve to death or die of preventable disease earlier than anyone living in a nanny state.

Senate Rejects 4 Measures to Control Gun Sales

Gun background check compromise, assault weapon ban fail in Senate

Guys, you've got to read the articles for the dialogue, it's ab fab.

Seems like things may have mostly been just the parties opposing each others bills as someone in the Orlando thread hinted at. The GOP actually had a few more votes in favor than the Dems tho. Keeps the moderates happy. Risk was if it passed, bad law gets shot down later on, but now they can claim they supported a reasonablecommonsense compromise what the Dems tossed, while still looking quite as shitty on due proc as the opposition. On the other hand, the grabbers likely already knew they weren't going to have enough votes in the first place. Not to mention election year.

Notice this is the same fucking bill they just had the sit-in over.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/01/politics/guns-house-democrats-republicans/index.html

Washington (CNN) House Democrats said Friday they will oppose a Republican bill aimed at preventing people suspected of being terrorists from buying guns because they don't believe the proposal will be effective in stopping the purchases.
The legislation, which will be voted on next week, is similar to a bill authored by Sen. John Cornyn of Texas that Senate Democrats rejected a week ago. It would give the Justice Department three days after a suspected terrorist tries to buy a gun to show that the person should not be allowed to have it. Democrats complain it is onerous and unworkable.

"House Democrats will keep up our efforts to push for the majority to allow a vote on gun violence legislation but bringing up a bill authored by the NRA isn't going to cut it," said Drew Hammill, a top aide to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California.
House Democrats held a conference call Friday to discuss the legislation. There was clear consensus the caucus would oppose the GOP gun bill, according to a Democratic aide.
Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, the civil rights icon who led last week's protest on the House floor to press for votes on gun control, told the caucus he had requested a meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan to ask for votes on two amendments to the GOP bill. One would deal with increased background checks for gun purchases and one would deal with not allowing people on the no-fly list to guy guns.
If Ryan doesn't allow the votes, Democrats will consider further action to try to force the votes, according to the aide.
Despite the Democratic opposition, the GOP majority is expected to pass the bill.
Republicans defended the legislation as an appropriate response to concerns ISIS-inspired attackers have been able to buy guns despite having drawn past scrutiny from the FBI. At the same time, Republicans want to ensure that innocent people who might have been mistakenly put on a watch list don't lose their constitutional right to buy guns.
The bill will "provide a process for individuals being investigated as known or suspected terrorists who attempt to buy a gun go to be flagged, delayed and -- if the burden of proof is satisfied -- denied the purchase," House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-California, said in a statement Friday after posting the bill.
Ryan announced Thursday in a conference call with his GOP caucus that the House would take up the gun legislation and other counterterrorism proposals.

Pretty sure the one they had a sit-in over didn't have the three days for the Justice Department to prove that a suspected terrorist shouldn't have a gun. The Democrats would only support a due-process-free solution.

A South Carolina man is facing multiple attempted murder charges after he opened fire on a crowd gathering outside a nightclub early Sunday, police said.

Deputies with Spartanburg County said 32-year-old Jody Ray Thompson pulled out an illegally carried firearm during an argument with another man and fired several rounds toward a crowd outside Playoffz nightclub in Lyman, a local NBC News affiliate reported.

“His rounds struck 3 victims, and almost struck a fourth victim, who in self-defense, pulled his own weapon and fired, striking Thompson in the leg,” Lt. Kevin Bobo said.

Lt. Bobo said the man who shot Mr. Thompson, who has not been identified, has a valid concealed weapons permit and will not face any charges.

South Carolina passed a law in 2014 that allows people holding concealed weapon permits to carry guns inside establishments that serve alcohol.

The only time you ever fire a gun as a warning or to wound/ incapacitate is with animals. Humans know what guns are, animals don't.

>In all, since 2010, at least 944 guns have disappeared from police in the Bay Area and state and federal agents across California — an average of one almost every other day — and fewer than 20 percent have been recovered.

>Little attention had been paid to the issue before Steinle’s highly publicized death. But at least 86 weapons were snatched from officers’ vehicles between January 2010 and last June’s smash-and-grab burglary of a U.S. Bureau of Land Management ranger’s gun recovered after Steinle’s shooting. Police have not determined who stole it, but an illegal immigrant is charged in her killing.

Presumably, there are 717 STILL unaccounted for, while they've recovered or otherwise accounted for 227 of the original 944.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/25/us/hawaii-gun-owner-database/
>(CNN)While the issue of gun control has made little headway in Congress, Hawaii this week enacted a series of gun laws, one of which the governor says makes it the first state to put firearm owners into a database.
That database, which is called the "Rap Back" system, is operated by the FBI and would notify police when a gun owner is arrested for a crime anywhere in the United States.
>"This will allow county police departments in Hawaii to evaluate whether the firearm owner may continue to legally possess and own firearms," the Hawaii governor's office said in a statement.
>During the public comment process regarding the bill, opponent Quentin Kealoha asked: "Why are law-abiding citizens exercising their constitutional right being entered into a criminal database? Would you enter people exercising their right to free speech into a criminal database?"
>Supporters countered that adding gun owners to the database was needed because the initial background check wasn't sufficient.
>Maj. Richard Robinson from the Honolulu Police Department wrote that after the initial background check, there are no further checks on the gun owner.
>"As a result, the county police departments have no way of knowing if a current Hawaii firearm owner has been convicted of a crime in another state that would prohibit him or her from owning a firearm," Robinson wrote in a letter to the State House in March.

>The new law would "in essence provide an ongoing background check on firearm owners to determine their eligibility to own and possess a firearm."

>A second and separate gun measure signed into Hawaii state law Thursday prohibits offenders who have stalked or committed sexual assault from owning guns. At least 11 other states have some sort of laws restricting people who've been convicted of stalking from possessing guns.
>The third new law requires gun owners to surrender their firearms and ammunition to the police if they've been disqualified to possess the weapons "due to a diagnosis of having a significant behavioral, emotional, or mental disorder, or due to emergency or involuntary admission to a psychiatric facility."
>If the person does not voluntarily give up their arms, the police chief has permission to seize the weapons.

That will be all of the ice they are smoking I suppose, those lunatics.


I can't actually think of an example where a list of gun owners didn't eventually lead to confiscation (or forced state purchasing where in the rob you and throw you some change telling you it's more than enough).

I mean my country tightly controls firearms and seems to slowly reduce the allowable firearms. Criminals run around with weapons on parity to our police's specialised armed response units and yet a decent person has to jump through 20 hoops for a fucking side by side.

I remember a few years ago, when handguns were still relatively available the gov just over night removed the privilege except for ex-military or special license holders. They just issued a legal requirement to hand them in at the nearest police station with no compensation even. Some people made a little money back by selling them out of country, insulting as the prices were.

You bucks in the US need to be a bastion of firearm ownership so that the rest of us will have an example to follow if depussification ever happens.
Never let go of the right.

Was always pretty fond of the club (as much as you can be for a club, I generally prefer bars). Friend of mine used to dance there, and another used to work the door. It's pride weekend in Orlando, so no telling if any of my local queer crew got tagged. 2nd high profile shooting in as many nights for Orlando, not looking forward to this shit getting political.
