That would mean a bicyclist training course, a street driving examination, a license to bike, a yearly registration and safety inspection, and more important, a state-issued Texas Toll Tag, with all the applicable fees. Those are things I and thousands of others pay on an annual basis, for the privilege of dodging and avoiding the “I don’t care” bicycle riders. If you want your mode of transportation to be considered a “vehicle” and have all the privileges that come with that, start paying.

Logic shows us she is wrong.
In each case the shooter was mentally ill. It did not begin with guns. It began with, and ended with, a violent mentally ill person killing as many people as possible. Why? Because family and friends failed to pursue reporting serious mentally ill behavior to mental health professionals, requiring the need for urgent and immediate intervention.
In the case of Aurora, mental health professionals apparently did not take the necessary steps to have that individual committed as a danger to himself and others. In Virginia Tech, that individual was also known to have serious mental problems. The same applies in Sandy Hook and Tucson, Arizona. Is our mental health system inadequate, or virtually non-existent?
Millions of Americans, and I am one of them, feel that any attack on our Second Amendment is an act of treason.
It is my opinion the only way Congress should run a hearing to gather facts is have each party appoint a talented cross examiner to conduct the hearing. This method would be much more effective in getting to the truth than having big egos affecting the outcome.

However, how come there is nothing discussed about the other half that is to be sequestered. What programs are to be cut, clashed, and reduced to meet that 50 percent? Or are we to be faced with Congress dithering away to protect their “sacred cows”?
This is the hypocrisy of a nation deeply in debt and yet leaders are calling for more taxes.
