Allen, I don't care if the president hadn't done more than acknowledge, and give support to the families of ANYONE killed in some of these mass killings. He now is attempting to reinvent the wheel on gun control because of a couple isolated incidents, that are indeed tragic, but has don't a damn thing to control guns owned by gangs and thugs that innocent people are killed by daily. Do we just forget them because they don't make for a good story? I'm aware the president is black and I don't what that has to do with anything we're discussing. It's people like you trying to make something out of nothing.<quoted text>
Exploitation? I don't think that he dragged them there kicking and screaming. They were there in support of him and his proposal. Personally I don,t see anything wrong with his proposal. At least he is making an effort. Had he done nothing I'm sure you would be here posting as to his lack of leadership, lack of empathy, lack of guts, etc. What makes me sick is, in one of your previous posts, you plead with healthy topix posters to donate bone marrow to save lives but, yet you seem to oppose gun regulation in order to save lives.
The NRA would have us believe that our BLACK POTUS is coming to take all our guns. They are purposly creating a fear factor among the people to expand on thier bottom line.
Let's talk immigration for a second. We have over 12 million Latinos in this country and the number is growing by the day. What percent do you think will be granted amnesty? Those active in Civil Rights will come out of the wood work. So hey, let's not ban any gun at all, let's do away with all background checks. Welcome to the next civil war just not the one the GOP would have you think.
Look, I don't care if you never give the sweat under your armpits to help anyone. Keep your marrow and hopefully you, a family member, some child, mother/father raising children etc won't need it and people like you can feel good when someone asking for people to be marrow donors make you sick. What don't you get death is death? A child's death is no less painful to a parent if it's through a gunshot or the lack of a marrow transplant or any kind of organ donor.
As far as immigration goes, that's for you to worry about, not me. I won't be here and I don't give a damn how many people flood into this country illegally and people like you can work and keep them up. Pick up a gun and fight in your "next" civil, again that's you problem not mine.
