When I traveled to other countries in the early 70's, you had a passport and more importantly a passport sized yellow booklet with your inoculation history, in order to get into the country. For some reason those yellow booklets are no longer required, we are now seeing mumps, measles, TB etc that were eradicated during my lifetime. I remember the whole community lining up for the sugar cube at the local elementary school, I had a older cousin with Polio.
This is sure one very important reason, that everyone traveling from another location should come through lawfully established Ports of Entry, just ask the American Indians about small pox.
Travelers throughout human history have brought terrible disease with them, it is just a fact, immunization has become complacent in the USA and now we are seeing eradicated disease starting to take hold again.

Type "A" people are bossy, just the way the cookie crumbles.
I personally avoid them because they are exhausting and really boring but I have no desire to see them banned, vive la difference.

Cry me a River.
My goddaughter has 12+4+4+4=24 years of education and uses her vacation time to work in South American on her own dime and flight expense to help children. 24 years of education is what it takes to earn an M.D. in pediatrics/internal medicine, she never had time to waste at the Party Dude.
Her sister has 12+3+4=19 years of education and graduates next month with a DVM and starts an internship. She donates her time down in South America also, in animal husbandry, on her own dime and flight expense. She graduated from college in 3 years, never had time to waste frying brain cells. Oh and she earned a M.S. while in Vet School.
Some people are interested in making a difference, other just dividing by ZERO.

California Congresswoman Jackie Speier , same district as California State Senator Leland Yee, says,
"Citing the fact that now-suspended California state Sen. Leland Yee allegedly planned to help bring illegal guns into the country, Rep. Jackie Speier, (D-CA), is calling for the President to ban the import of ‘lethal assault weapons.’
This announcement came Wednesday from the Congresswoman, who represents the same district that Yee hailed from."
“This FBI investigation of Leland Yee reveals how easy it is to import lethal assault weapons that were previously banned,” said Speier in an emailed statement from the Representative’s office to Guns.com.
“This case should be a warning to us all that even the most trusted appearing among us are ready to do real harm,” she said.
Her solution to fix future instances of potential gun running such as in the Yee case? Call on the White House to ban the import of “assault weapons.”
“Since Congress can pass no meaningful gun-control laws, even after the mass killing in Newtown, President Obama should use his pen to slow the import of these weapons, which have no place in our homes,” wrote Speier.'
Dear Congresswoman Speier,
"Assault Weapons" are by Military Definition "select fire arms" or "fully automatic" and already ILLEGAL to import into the United States unless you are a Governmental Entity. Select-Fire Arms of all types have been highly Regulated in the United States since the Gun Control Act of 1934.
Just whoring to the electorate, eh.
These People are passing laws?
Yes Jackie your very incompetent presence does harm, to the Republic.

I think the bigger issue is this.
Professional Politicians pimp their electorate with laws that focus on knee-jerk reactions to emotional social events. PP's are whores and in reality they care nothing about the electorate, only about ME, MYSELF and I and really have no Ideology but personal greed and advancement.
Yee is the poster boy for what is going on in the California Legislature, its really not Democrats and Republicans, it is Professional Politicians across the board.
One of the reasons we have a plethora to the nth power of meaningless laws that makes the law abiding Citizenry accidental felons on a daily basis, or the current formation of a Police State.

Gun Control Laws really have no effect on the Criminal Element of Society, as Senator Yee has so aptly shown, all the draconian Firearms Laws that he has championed and authored were just against the Law Abiding Citizenry and had no effect on the criminal element.
The 137 page FBI affidavit can be downloaded here:
Per the FBI affidavit Page 82, Senator Yee was willing to facilitate;
Placing "Automatic Weapons and Shoulder-fired Missiles" on the streets of California.
"KEITH JACKSON asked UCE 4599 "You know what you want right?" UCE 4599 told SENATOR YEE and KEITH JACKSON he wanted any type of "shoulder-fired" weapons or missiles. SENATOR YEE asked UCE4599 if he wanted "automatic weapons" as opposed to semi-automatic weapons. UCE 4599 confirmed with SENATOR YEE he wanted automatic weapons..."
