Barack Obama, our next President

You still don't get it, dufus. You have no credibility. You can't even fix the gun problem in your own goddam backyard. An idiot knows you won't be able to fix any other problem.
Assuming the Democrats aren't idiots, what's the real plan?
Assuming the Demcorats are idiots, why should anyone listen to them?
When you fix the gun problem in your own goddam backyard, then we'll listen to you. Until then, nothing you say will be taken seriously.
Get a clue....
i.e. right whiners don't think their is a gun violence problem. They must, because hey have never ever tried to fix it.

Republicans voted to cut police forces. Republicans voted to put assault type rifles back on the street.

A real plan would pull these high capacity weapons off the street & enact laws to help get guns ut of the hands of gang bangers.

But they don't.

They don't to placate dumbass morons like you.

You still have one problem. The Constitution states "...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Are you proposing that the Constitution be ignored?
What other parts of the Constitution should be ignored? Perhaps the parts that prevent the president from becoming the usual egomaniacal petty dictator and issuing edicts to the population as if he can write his won laws.
And, another issue. We have a civillian government. There are not two sets of rights, one for the civillians in government and another for the civillians not part of the governing elite. Everyone has the exact same rights.
Therefore, ALL civillians are subject to the same laws.
I'm guessing your concept allows the institution of a police state where there are two sets of rights, one for government and one for the rest of the population.
Nope. That won't fly in the United States. We don't like dictators and police states. Try something else.
Here's a musket, You're now bearing arms. STFU.

What does it take to be armed? one weapon.

This idea you think the second gives you the right to own a Howitzer & a nuclear Bomb is well beyond ridiculous.

Another Theory for Mass Murder: White-Male Privilege
Pasadena City College professor of history and gender studies Hugo Schwyzer tells National Review Online that he believes many crimes, dating back to John Hinckley’s attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan, are caused in part by “frustrated white male privilege.” In recent years, according to Schwyzer, mass murders have increasingly been committed by “white males from bucolic suburban settings” who may be experiencing a form of cognitive dissonance; having been told “the world is supposed to be your oyster,” these young men are “miserable in the midst of abundance” and feel “powerless compared to everyone else around them.”
Pointing to the example of Nidal Hasan, whose interest in Islamic extremism and contact with terrorist cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was cited as the motive for his attack on the Fort Hood army base, Schwyzer laments that a similar linkage between culture and violence isn’t made when white males commit mass murder.

Basically sonic you just stated what I've been saying all along, but when a college professor says it , everybody's ears turn into antennas. Now they find sense where in my case there was none. Society needs to stop making excuses for white males that commit these horrific crimes of insanity. Their parents need to take responsibility alot earlier in their lives. They needs to be taught responsibility & the consequences of their actions before their reach the age where nothing anyone says can reach them. Before their disassociation urges them to choose infamy over fame. It's sad when mass murder is the only way someone can feel relevant coming from a privileged background.

I'm guessing this propaganda indoctrinating dupe that was somehow allowed to infect our education system doesn't take into account the blatantly obvious fact that the number of murders in just one of our major cities equals the number of soldiers killed in a full-scale war.
How can you give anything scientific credibility when 90 percent of observations are ignored.
So, since it's obvious you are (or, should be, if you have any kind of an education) promoting propaganda, what is the real purpose of your argument? What is it you want to achieve by presenting misleading arguments?
I think we can get to it.
The police (all. Federal, state, local, Secret Service, everything not under the authority of the UCMJ) should have the same restrictions.
What do you say about that?
Now, we're going to get to the real intent of the Demcorats and why this propaganda is being spewed to the general public.

You, too, dupe.
By the way, our education system is the worst in the industrialized world. And, you give some so-called "acamedician" at the bottom of it credibility. That, just by itself, says enough about your argument. But, if that isn't enough:

There were red flags with the Columbine shooters that were ignored.
Students even reported violent emails sent to them by one of the shooters which were ignored.
Colorado now has a heightened awareness policy. Among them:
Schools should work to change the "code of silence" by emphasizing to students, teachers and parents that violent threats are never appropriate and should be taken seriously.
School districts should establish anonymous reporting hot lines or similar systems.
Colorado schools should adopt one or more bullying-prevention programs and adopt a code of behavior, then ensure that the code is enforced fairly.
...The Newtown shooter needed intervention long before the tragedy.
We have to change the complacency about mental health intervention as well as instill a heightened awareness among students and parents to prove any threatening or even disturbing behaviors anonomously.
Dream on babe__what you're talking about is unwinding HIPPA and that will not happen in your lifetime. Think about it, when you put someones name on a government registry for mental/emotional problems/diagnoses you in effect destroy that persons life. Who makes that decision? Will there be a second or third opinion option? Who pays for the medical evaluations?

It's another expensive government growing intrusion that targets the wrong people for 99.9% of the citizens that would wind up on such a list would likely never attempt to purchase any sort of weapon.

The Newtown shooter didn't attend school, the only person who observed him on a daily basis was his mother who "obviously" didn't consider him a potential mass murderer. There was a lot of money coming into that household, her alimony schedule for 2012 alone was for $289,000 and we don't know whether dad was sending Adam money.

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- A dentist acted legally when he fired an assistant that he found attractive simply because he and his wife viewed the woman as a threat to their marriage, the all-male Iowa Supreme Court ruled Friday.

The court ruled 7-0 that bosses can fire employees they see as an "irresistible attraction," even if the employees have not engaged in flirtatious behavior or otherwise done anything wrong. Such firings may be unfair, but they are not unlawful discrimination under the Iowa Civil Rights Act because they are motivated by feelings and emotions, not gender, Justice Edward Mansfield wrote.

An attorney for Fort Dodge dentist James Knight said the decision, the first of its kind in Iowa, is a victory for family values because Knight fired Melissa Nelson in the interest of saving his marriage, not because she was a woman.

O'Reilly brought attention to the story when the parents finally went to the media for help. Carney was asked by the media at a press conference what this administration was doing, and Carney didn't even know who he was - three months after the Marine had been in prison and the parents had pleaded to the government for help.
Just curious, what do you think should be done to a Mexican that smuggled a gun into the USA?

We don't know if he was being treated by a psychiatrist or not; he may have been on meds and stopped taking them; she did go away to New Hampshire for 2 days, seems as though that's when he planned his rampage. Nevertheless, if the accounts are true that he attempted to purchase a gun at Dicks and attempted to obtain a permit and was turned down, it would appear that the guns were probably locked up but he found a way to get them. The bottom line is that if she did not have those guns, this may have not happened.
He may have killed her by other means and himself and 20 kids would be alive as well as the teachers.

Would you be in favor of corporal punishment by parents and teachers? What are meaningful and effective consequences?
Should people with children have guns in the home?
One thing that is a given; if there are guns in the home; kids always find them, they have that gun radar somehow. Another 3 year old found a gun the other day and shot himself. Happens every day.
The man who brought his 7 year old son with him to sell his guns at a gunstore, accidently shot his son in the chest and killed him.
It's just awful. To me the answer is to ban guns, although I don't think it will happen

<quoted text>Utah State Trooper Lisa Steed, recently honored for making record numbers of DWI arrests, has been fired and is facing a class-action lawsuit by dozens of innocent people who are claiming they were falsely arrested and convicted of DWI. Many of her victims were non-drinkers who were stopped with no probable cause at DWI checkpoints. Evidence shows that scores of breathalyzer and blood test BAC results were inflated and falsely reported by this officer. There is another cop in Chicago facing similar accusations. Having been the victim of a false DWI arrest in North Carolina (whose case was eventually dismissed with an apology from the Court) I'm willing to bet this is a common practice among many cops.
Yes that is and that's very interesting. When there are quota systems there will be those issues. A former chief of police in my town said publicly that his officers weren't writing enough tickets, they weren't meeting their quotas. Then there were cops everywhere harrassing people for nothing; I once got a seatbelt ticket on my residential street as I was pulling out of my driveway! I always wear my seatbelt, and put it on after backing out. I said, are you seriously giving me this ticket? He said, ok I'll give you a warning this time. It's all about revenue. Glad your case got dropped, but how much did it cost you in time, money and aggravation; not to mention getting it off your record?
Also, I am against checkpoints, red light cameras and giving police power to pull people over for seatbelts; it's a way to harrass people.

Mr. Lapierre said on MTP this morning that if a felon tries to buy a gun and is turned down, then he should be arrested. If a person with mental health issues does, he should be arrested. Is this what you would be in favor of?
Sounds absurd to me and it costs more than $40K a year to imprison someone. Are we going to become a police state and warehouse people morese than we do now? We have more people in prison than all countries in the world combined. It's ridiculous.

....white men in this country are taught that they are the masters of their own destiny, and are usually not confronted with the same limitations of possibility that men of color are. When white men fail, an experience our society gives them few resources to confront, they often lash out at those they hold responsible....

Maybe we'll learn the entire story and maybe not. Mom trusted the kid alone at home, he had a car, he had attended a nearby college and even had some friends. No one so far has come forward to say that the kid was batshyte crazy and a possible danger to society. If there was a "danger" list as Wayne LaPierre called for, Adam Lanza would not have been on it, nor would have been the Columbine kids, the mutt that shot Giffords or the Aurora shooter who actually knew that he was slipping over the edge but it was much to late for a list.

There are some crazy mofo's posting right here 24/7, claiming to be armed and dangerous, we had one a while back whose registered profile contained death threats against the POTUS.

Congress wont ban these so called assault weapons lily, it's to late, the consumer market is large and too very well established.

What I personally would like to see is a federal ban on off premise sales, in other words no gun shows anywhere, period. Weapons and ammo would be sold only in the buildings where the license lives.

IMO, responsible gun owners would be OK with that___maybe not the gun freaks__fk those bozos__it's long past time to cull that herd.
