It's easy to spot liberal crap. Anytime they spew about gun control, they tend to bring up the term "assault weapon".
What the hell is an "assault weapon"? I know a good deal about guns, but "assault weapon" means nothing. To a liberal, it means "a scary looking gun". Which is why the "assault weapon" ban that expired years ago is not around-- it couldn't be enforced because there is no definition for "assault weapon".
But that's the Liberal Way. Pass laws that make people feel better and less afraid, even if they are pointless. Like having every airline passenger take off his shoes at the airport.
Bought some Sudafed over the weekend, my wife has a cold. Since liberal kids are cooking so much meth these days, a customer can't buy Sudafed without going to the pharmacy and having their driver's license scanned. The last thing you have to do before they give you the decongestant is sign a statement that says "I promise ONLY to use this product to stop my sniffles".
Like if I WAS going to cook meth with it I wouldn't sign that form.
Ah, liberal influence is everywhere.
You license is scanned into a database simply to see of you are buying large quantities of Sudafed. The disclaimer you sign is a legal procedure to protect the retailer from litigation.

While you're at it, tell us which goddam Democrat put money for Cuba in the bill to help victims of Sandy.
Again, you idiots are thinking money grows on trees.
Funny stuff there, dickeeed.

WTF does money going to Cuba have to do with pregnant women???

And really, you're certainly not so f*cking stupid to think we don't have a military installation in Cuba which was hit by Hurricane Sandy.

Oh wait, you are that f*cking stupid.

get them while they're 'hot'!

Licensed gun dealers nationwide “lost” an average of at least 56 firearms every day over the last three years, according to a Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence analysis of new data released last week by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) at a gun industry trade show. From 2008 to 2010, at least 62,134 firearms left gun dealers’ inventory without a record of being legally sold.

Now we know where Carol gets her crap from:
The tragic elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut is a symptom of the general moral decline of the United States, according to James Dobson, the founder of the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family.
On his radio program Monday morning, Dobson said the country was facing judgment after turning its back on God.
“I mean millions of people have decided that God doesn’t exist, or he’s irrelevant to me and we have killed fifty-four million babies and the institution of marriage is right on the verge of a complete redefinition,” the influential conservative explained.“Believe me, that is going to have consequences too.”

It seems I'm not the only one who believes society's callousness toward human life and the acceptance of irresponsible behavior as a result has its consequences.

The culture of immorality, violence and complancency we created is also inundating our children through the medium of movies, television and video games resulting in an emotional vacuum among the younger generation.

I'm not sure what we expected would happen.

It's a simple and obvious connection. Garbage in, garbage out.

If you gun nuts are really law abiding, then you will voluntarily turn them in when the ban is implemented like the good citizens in England did. If not, then you will be a criminal, which you probably are anyway. If you weren't you wouldn't want to own a gun anyway.

The pattern repeats after every massacre and after every election of a Democratic president—sales of firearms and ammunition surge before the liberals can supposedly engineer their inevitable bans. Anyone who’s been to a gun show since 2008 has seen the rising prices and the religious certitude that President Obama will make a run at the Second Amendment, just like Illinois state Sen. Obama did in the 1990s.

The irony of the Great Ammo Panic: Liberals have failed to restrict sales, even as the interstate and online purchase of ammo has become easier. One of the NRA’s greatest legislative successes, the Firearms Owners’ Protection Act, let dealers sell ammo without recording vital information about the buyers. That law eventually facilitated the online ammo market, which allows sites like CheaperThanDirt to sell 30-round extended clips for $8.99.

We have two local schools working with the local police to have a policeman on site.
If people want guns in the schools, then it should be with trained law enforcement.
Not some teacher or principal who took a weekend course.
Perhaps the teachers need more, and enhanced training. How about both, teachers trained with firearms AND police? If a teacher shooses to remain unarmed, like I choose any and every time I leave my home, then that is a choice available to them.
And, then we can work on training our teachers to be better than producing the most expensive workforce in the industrialized world with the most expensive education system in the world.
Out of curiosity, why do you think we have the most expensive education system in the world adn produce the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world?

Why does John Galt, i.e. Nobama, run off whenever the subject matter becomes too real?

It would seem he'd rather ignore the rising waters and not make waves because it might rock the boat.

You can rock the boat without capsizing. It just wakes everyone up.
