<quoted text>He won't although he might step the fight up a notch or two. The Democrats are on a roll and will continue to be until they fk up. Getting involved in gun control when 74% of the nations voters do not want gun control is, IMO, a mistake when solutions on other important issues are within reach. Immigration for instance is ripe for meaningful reform, something that I never thought would occur under a (D) POTUS.
Strike while the iron is hot eh?
It will take a long time to produce meaningful gun control legislation__maybe it will eventually come about like marijuana__one state at a time.
Gun and ammo sales will mushroom the next two weeks as politicians talk about more gun control legislation.

How about getting mentally ill people off the street? Support for that would be almost unanimous.

It was the point that guns aren't necessarily needed to commit mass murder.
Calling me an idiot didn't change the point you were making and is perpetrating the mean-spiritedness that we must stop for the sake of our chldren.
Can you at least try to be more civil? We're all trying to figure this out the best way we can.
A good start would be to stop lying and spreading lies.

<quoted text>nope, because I was talking to an American Airlines Pilot at the Airport and told me that carrys a gun for protection while flying on the plane which they are allowed.
In the cockpit? As I said, some do but most don't.

Perhaps you're old enough to recall when the Airline Pilots Assn was "pleading" for guns in the cockpit and were told by congress that they weren't trustworthy enough.

conservative voters sat out election for mitt. do you regard that as a lie?
Don't know about "conservatives", but believe that the church folk stayed away because of Romney's religion. Republicans need to stop listening to the evangelicals, who are nothing more than anti-abortion economic liberals.

Anyone could have made up that story; I don't find it viable.
Furthermore, AZ has open carry, lots of gun owners, and no one pulled out his gun on Loughner. The element of surprise in a mass shooting stuns people, law abiding gun owners don't want to start randomly shooting. Eliminate the rapid fire clips and automatic assault weapons, save a few lives.
Not to say that it's not possible, there was a case here a few years ago wherein a 70 yr old man used his concealed weapon to foil a robbery at a Subway shop.
"silly"
You do not find the above story viable. Good for you. Always best to wait for the facts. On the other hand you spread stories that Mr. Romney committed an armed robbery? You are a hypocrite.

Then stop yer cryin' about some nut slaughtering 20 elementary school kids 'cause that's the sort of thing that's going to happen when you give the public military weapons.
I don't believe you will stop this sort of thing by banning such weapons but I also know of no legitimate reason for the public to have them. This fantasy they have that they're going to prevent tyranny is nothing more than that: a fantasy. Doesn't matter how many AK's or AR-15's the public has they would be next to useless should the US government to decide to turn our military against us.
Should the police (our employees) have military-style weapons?

You prove your pigheaded ignorance every time you bring up the completely discredited idea that Saddam moved anything.
All of the AWACs and alll of the satelites we had watching Iraq saw nothing.
Yet Carol still peddles the same, dumb lies.
You haven't an iota of evidence, even Bush said Saddam had no WMD's. yet you still call Bush a liar.
You're hopeless, Lorac.
She's a compulsive liar, evidently that's a Christian trait I was previously unaware of.

Totally agree, that Jacksonville guy got out of dodge quick; that's an easy first degree murder if I ever saw one. I can't believe he thinks he can use the stand your ground law! What an idiot. Don't like the loud music? What about close your windows and drive off? Too many trigger happy nuts around.
Think of all the parents of autistic and aspergers kids now; after this. Aspergers kids are really different, don't make friends, are loners, usually brilliant. Doesn't mean they're all killers.
Seriously, if she was afraid of her son, why would she have guns in the house? Sounds like something went totally haywire. We'll soon find out.
"silly"
Why do you not let a judge and jury determine if Zimmerman is guilty of murder? Afraid of the justice system.

The visit is a photo-op, you fcukingass. Who stands to benefit from his grand appearance, the shattered families? Condolences and reassurances would be better served by a personal call. He's there to further his agenda, maybe even squeeze out another phantom tear.

I would rather they didn't. They wouldn't need that kind of firepower if our government didn't engage them in a phony war.

In what way do you believe our Government is engaging Law Enforcement in a phony war?

Border Patrol is certainly a "phony war".

But which were you refering to?
