I happened across this on Politifact.com as I was researching another topic. Politifact seems to be unbiased, but please let me know if anyone has info to the contrary.
The subject concerns a Providence City, Rhode Island council resolution claiming that semi-auto weapons were designed for military use. Another knee jerk biased resolution based on conjecture. Assuming of course that the information contained herein is accurate!
The subject heading of the article is this:
"Semi-automatic weapons, whether pistol or rifle, were designed for use by the military on the battlefield."
Providence City Council on Thursday, January 3rd, 2013 in a council resolution
Here is the link:
I'm a firm believer that the inoculation of the 2nd amendment is only a prelude to a further erosion or complete abandonment of (whats left of) the Constitution.
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

I dont think anyone needs Trumps coat tails, they just need a strong message people believe in.... like Trump.
Too often these people just expect a vote becuase a D or R, or because they're not the "other guy". Im done voting that way.
Besides Murphy is a much better politician than Jack, the guy never ran for office before and won too... no one ever heard of the guy before he showed up here. Murphy made this state his bitch with zero politcal experience.
To help buyers and sellers alike, I've gone to AmmoSeek and looked up the current pricing for the most popular pistol, rifle and rimfire cartridges. All ammo (unless otherwise noted) is grade A factory new (no reman) brass case re-loadable with a full metal jacket.
This list does NOT reflect the lowest prices, nor the highest. The sky is the limit for the greedy exploiters, and lower prices can be found on grade B and remanufactured ammo. This guide is intended to show the current low/high average bracket price ammo may be obtained. It does not mean it will be in stock. Your best bet for finding and obtaining the lowest prices is to create an account at several on-line resellers and put yourself on notify lists.

I won't be voting for him.
As odd it sounds, Murphy has helped me financially in this state. I can't stand Murphy, I hate the guy with a passion... yet I have zero reason to vote for Ciatterelli... not a single reason.
Which means I probably just sit out on this one.
