Probably not, but they only dig a deeper hole than they are already in. The NRA and The Tea Party own the GOP.
Several western democrats get high grades from the NRA, like Harry Reid, who has gotten almost nine thousand dollars from the NRA, and a"B"ranking as well.It's not a simple"us"versus "them"thing AZ, IT'S more complicated. As a teacher you know that not all problems have simplistic solutions, although emotion may cause us to reach for simple solutions, along with frustration.Hitler was popular with the German people, with his"simple"solutions , there's a danger there.

For everyone posting on here that is healthy, please consider being a marrow donor. Even if you've had cancer and have been cancer free for five years or more you can donate. Bone marrow transplants are not as invasive as they used to be,(just a few) but nowadays if you're a match, you can have blood taken and the marrow is extracted this way. I was called several times and thought because of my medical history, I couldn't be a donor, but it turns out I can. Again, please consider being a donor, you literally could save someone's life. :)

Just saw on CNN Mexico is claiming to have a stake in America's "gun legislation." Just what stake does another nation have in our laws particularly the one law that has been the sole reason why no other nation has successfully invaded the United States other than the Brits or japs?
The sole reason? You mean having a military twenty times the size of all others had nothing to do with it? Great, then cut military spending down in half and you can have assault weapons. Deal?

Hold on just a minute Mike, I'm going to have to throw the BS flag on you and Waco on that post. You guys seem to forget there's kids killed everyday in gang related shootings because "somebody disrespected them by riding down their screet". These gangs are black, white, asian and mexican, so let's don't start with the "rich kid holding off the neighborhood BS. White, middle class kids like my daughter patches them up hopefully to live another day or until another "disrespect" issue occurs or a drug deal goes bad. BTW, these are kids we're talking about, most not even much over 14-15 years old. I see no one likes to talk about kids being murdered daily from gang violence because it's not "the rich, white kid holding off the neighborhood."

Banks were to stupid to turn them down also. Banks overextened themselves.
But republicans do not want to regulate them either.

We were talking about the school shootings,not all shootings or gang shootings.

Mike, do we minimize the death of any child because the child didn't die at school? There are actually innocent children killed due to gang related shootings. I guess because a "white, rich kid" didn't shoot them, they're deaths aren't sensationalized and doesn't make for a good media story or score good political points. Geez...

Follow the law and you will be fine.
The bad guys take chances, and they often lose. No laws and they win.
And if you were actually in touch with reality, you would know that we already have laws against murder. Laws governing what you can and can not do legally with firearms. As I said before, if more gun legislation and back ground checks are needed, then there should be no problem with requiring a VALID FORM OF IDENTIFICATION in order to cast a vote. Voting and illicit use of firearms has the ability to change lives drastically.

Actually, I'd trade military spending(including pensions) off with Social security, unemployment benefits, medicare/medicaid, welfare and food stamp programs for no/low income households.

Bacon I get your point, but these mass murders are almost the exclusive province of white rich kids.Not talking about gang killings.I'm not saying rich white kids are bad.Too much time on your hands, an anti-social personality, too much coddling is a recipe for disaster.That's my opinion, By the way, i'm becoming an NRA member! I'm full of contradictions haaaa!

Here miley, here is some more information for you.

"The leading causes of injury-related death among children ages 14 and under are motor vehicle crashes, suffocation, drowning and fires and/or burns."
http://www.safekids.org/our-work/research/fac...

Since guns are not a leading cause of death for children, more gun legislation is painfully unnecessary. Perhaps democrats and yourself were a tad less emotional and actually dealt with real life, you would clearly see that more of your guys energy would be better spent in prevention of these types of incidents from this data.

I made the point almost two years ago on this forum about a whole generation of kids bring destroyed in gangs.The gangs also basically run many prisons in America as well, due to not enough guards,(it doesn't pay well, turnover is high), so our prisons are only breeding grounds for"better"criminals .Because gang members kill other gang members and a few innocent bystanders, it is not addressed with any passion.But besides lost lives and drugs, the gangs cost a fortune to house in our prisons.Prisons can be"gang proofed"to a much greater extent than is currently done, if we only had the will.

here here sir. Think the best part of your synopsis is "prison are only breeding grounds for better criminals."

AZ has the proof. Friend and confidant of a former drug dealer turned model citizen now elected local government offical. We all know politicians are the biggest criminals of all. Just being snarky this evening...Think I will head to bed.

Hey, they'll send you some neat stuff for joining. I don't know if you wear hats, but my husband does and he loves the free hats they send. You will get a free NRA pin to wear and coffee cup.

How do you explain the killings at VA Tech? The guy that killed those people was Asian. Since we're stereotyping people, he can be blamed for being the "nerd" of the group with too much time on his hands from solving complex math problems???

If she's rich and has children, you may want to make sure one of them doesn't decide to go out and "hold off the neighborhood", could be a lot of headaches for you.

She has no children. She's a psychiatric nurse, so would see the potential violent tendencies if she did. Not a worry.

Congrats Arnold. This must have been the season for love. Hope it works out for you guys. You got a two-fer with her, a woman that loves you and can take care of you if you start going bonkers.
