Chuck Schumer thinks you're guilty until proven innocent

And even if you're innocent, it doesn't matter - at least when it comes to gun ownership.
Get collared years ago on a bogus drug charge because the oregano in your back pocket looked like was a bag of weed? Or maybe a judge back in 2006 dropped those charges because you were able to provide proof for that Adderall prescription? Under proposed legislation, it will not matter if you were innocent all along or even proven innocent by a court of law.

Either way, you can forget about buying a gun.

The Fix Gun Checks Act of 2011 would greatly expand the definition of those legally prohibited from owning firearms to include anyone who’s ever been arrested — even if never convicted or found guilty — for drug possession within a five-year period.
My first act as president will be to propose legislation mandating that any senators or congressmen who sponsor legislation that infringes on the constitutional rights of the citizen will have their office moved to a bench in McPherson Square, where they can rub shoulders with the other bums.

Your mouth to God's ear, Mr. President!

Linked at PPII. With thanks.

This must be one of those "common sense" gun control measures Obama was pushing a couple weeks ago.

Your proposed legislation is too good for them, Mr. President, without additional community service... say, cleaning out the lion cages at the National Zoo.

Before lunch -- the lions'.

Chuckie Schumer can also clean the toilets of everyone bilked by his great contributor, Bernie Madoff.

And here I was waiting for Paco to expound on the loan deals given to the Brazilians for offshore oil drilling . . .

I don't think anyone wonders where Candidate Paco stands on the Second Amendment.

Colonel Milquetoast, you need to sell posters, full size. I'd buy 'em to hang in the elevators at work. Just to pi$$ off the local lefties.

See!!

Paco only promises to 'act' as a President.
He probably drinks his Bourbon with 'branch water' (by Evian).

Cheers
