Barack Obama, our next President

Any weapon that is not pump action, lever action, bolt action or single shot would/should be defined as an assault weapon. You have a problem with that definition?
Absolutely. Semi-automatic weapons are not necessarily "assault weapons", and there is no chance of banning such weapons.

Your quoting from one of America's biggest losers is hilariously stupid, little girl. Quoting from Alfred E. Neuman would even be a better tactic.

Remember...Jimmy Cahta was the Jerk-In-Chief who publicly claimed he was attacked by a swimming rabbit while canoeing at Camp David.

Sounds like one of your life's experiences, too, lily. Attacked by a racist rat while dumpster-diving, eh?

Gun lobby: Congress doesn't have the muscle to pass gun control

A month after Sandy Hook shootings, lawmakers are scaling back expectations on what can be achieved in Congress on gun control. But Democrats are urging the White House to use executive powers.

That EO is a ticking time bomb for the "0". Will he light the fuse and blow himself up? Impeachment proceedings should start immediately but they won't and we all know why.

Lived next to a 47 percenter lately...

"Dubuque Studies Link Between Section 8 Housing and Crime"

"In a two month period police arrested 553 people and 121 of those arrestees listed a section 8 address as his or her home.

Those addresses make up just about 14 percent of all rental properties, but they accounted for nearly half of all the people arrested during the study period. And many of those people, the city never approved to live there."

With House ratings of 11%, a Democratic takeover will be easy.

After that, it'll be all Obama, allthe time!!
As for Fidel, so will you be dead by 2016.
What's your point??

By 2016, even if you prophesies hold true, you will not be able to kill and rob all the rich you would like to. Many have already entered poverty or the "growth of the middle class", which means everybody is equally poor.

However, it is good that people like you are around to show the idiot Republicans who still think this is not a war, what reality is.

What are you guys gonna do once "the rich" have been eradicated along with poverty, racism, money and enough food? Even the printing press needs something valuable to keep going, especially when you will need a total national deficit or two to buy a cheeseburger after your leaders are done with you.

If you admit that you don't know what assault weapons are then why can't a definition of assault weapons include semi-automatic weapons. They certainly aren't necessary for hunting. And, since no one here has attempted to define exactly what government agents they intend to shoot to defend themselves, then they really aren't necessary to protect "patriots" from the government.

Disperse...!!!!!

disperse the 47 percenters...

"In the 1990s, the feds were embarrassed by skyrocketing crime rates in public housing—up to 10 times the national average, according to HUD studies and many newspaper reports. The government's response was to hand out vouchers to residents of the projects (authorized under Section 8 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974), dispersing them to safer and more upscale local..."

because they have to try.....

Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, said Sunday that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was wrong to assume that the government had the right to place limits on the Second Amendment. "He was not speaking from a constitutional perspective," Pratt said.

"The amendment does provide it's own degree of scrutiny: It says,'shall not be infringed,'" Pratt said on "Fox News Sunday" after host Chris Wallace read a quote from a 2008 case in which Scalia wrote that the Second Amendment was not "unlimited."

"And we know that at least one justice, Mr. Thomas, takes that point of view. This is not something where the government is supposed to be free to tell we the people, the government's boss, how much -- how far we can go with the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment is there to constrain the government."

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/g...

Scalia: What the opinion in Heller said is that it will have to be decided in future cases, what limitations upon the right to keep and bear arms are permissible.

until a new ruling is made....the word of the court stands.

"My starting point and probably my ending point will probably be what limitations are within the understood limitations that the society had at the time," he said. "They had some limitations on the nature of arms that could be borne."

"Homicide was simply moved to a new location, not eliminated," concluded University of Louisville criminologist Geetha Suresh in a 2009 article in Homicide Studies. In Louisville, Memphis, and other cities, violent crime skyrocketed in neighborhoods where Section 8 recipients resettled."

Dog whistle politics

Dog whistle politics usually refers to the use of certain code words or phrases that are designed to be understood by only a small section of the populace. Generally speaking, these are phrases that have special meaning to that subsection entirely independent of its meaning to others, and represent a particularly insidious use of loaded language.

oh yes, you are the man. i am puke green with envy. i can only strive to wallow in the mire you aspire to, and as soon as i can start taking myself much more seriously, i'll get back to ya.
