She added that some parents “prohibit all guns as toys,” and “no disrespect” was intended for members of the military, however, “Our commitment is always to our children and creating a safe place for them to learn, grow and have respectful dialogues about their differences.” First we confiscate what we find offensive, then we dialogue.
“you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, [the Senator’s never heard of being “shell shocked” (WWI) or suffering “combat stress reaction” (WWII) – the phenomenon started in Iraq, and I blame Bush- Ed] it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.”
