Accurate. I’d never thought of it that way, but you know I stashed that shit in my bag.
Some people in this world just don’t know when to be quiet. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, there’s someone on either side of the aisle who just has to take idiocy to a new level. Shaking My Damn Head
It’s like there’s an ignorance competition that no one should want to enter… but there’s entrants every single day.
Yeah, NOW he is… and for that, I’m deeply sorry that he occasionally emerges from his cave of darkness in Jackson Hole, hisses at the people, and then returns to slumber and feed.
But he’s not a Wyoming native, dammit. Nebraska spawned him.
We just had a similar demonstration in Austin! :)
I’ll be damned. They just came from Texas! Small world, no?
I know someone who is buying her son, a felon, any gun he wants, including assault rifles. Background check wouldn’t prevent that. It pisses me off, but what can we do about that?
You call the police or the ATF right goddamn now and tell them she is making straw purchases on behalf of a felon. What she is doing is against federal law, specifically 18 U.S.C. § 922. If a felon possesses a firearm, that can mean up to fifteen years in a federal prison with no parole. Something may come of what you do, or they might shrug it off. But departments of probation and parole — and most federal and state laws — require that a felon live in a home without firearms because of the concept of constructive possession.
In order to demonstrate constructive possession, the Ninth Circuit (and other federal jurisdictions) state that the government must prove a connection between the felon/defendant and the firearm or ammunition sufficient “to support the inference that the defendant exercised dominion and control over” the prohibited items (United States v. Carrasco). Also, joint control of the premises (i.e. residence) where the firearm or ammunition are located may establish possession when a felon “has knowledge of the weapon and both the power and the intention to exercise dominion and control over it.”
So there is something we can do about that. They’re both breaking the law, and I suggest you blow the whistle if you can do so safely. Good luck.
do you qualify for the GI bill?
I did. It ran out this summer.
*if* they are gloating that isn’t nice. but if they are getting that much they probably aren’t “lucky”. They are probably in a financially worse situation than you are. (not to dismiss your woes: the meager size of your pell grant is bullshit)
Under the previous version of the law, I was eligible for the full amount. The meager size is due to the law changing, not my income.
So in my eyes, they’re lucky. See my previous post. My EFC is $0 — meaning I was eligible.
