In Praise of the Lautenberg Amendment

As noted in this space yesterday, national nitwit Sarah Palin was quick to blame her oldest son's recent outburst of domestic violence as being a likely result of PTSD from his military service in the Middle East.  She then did a quick pivot and blamed that medical condition on what she saw as the President's lack of fervor in pursuing the war that was instigated by his predecessor.

A drunken Track Palin beats up his girlfriend while brandishing a weapon - and the fault of the incident lies with the Muslim, Kenyan usurper in the White House.   Mrs. Palin, the grandmother of three - none of whom were conceived in wedlock - undoubtedly has some convoluted logic at the ready to blame those babies on Obama as well.  One thing is certain, absolutely none of her children's misadventures can in any way be Sarah's fault.

Well, Sarah, here's some good news - a least for your Alaskan neighbors.  If Track gets convicted of domestic abuse, he will lose his guns.  "The Domestic Violence Offender Gun Ban," more commonly known as the "Lautenberg Amendment" became effective on September 30, 1996, and remains in effect to this very day.  That law makes it a felony for those convicted of misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence to ship, transport, possess, or receive firearms or ammunition.

A Palin without a gun!  What the hell was Congress thinking?

Perhaps Congress was thinking of the victims of domestic abuse, something you neglected to even mention in your defense of Track's despicable actions.  Track's girlfriend was the real victim of his drunken rampage - and she's the one you should be defending.
