Was appalled that Erin Burnett defended the NRA game targeting children and the ad using the Presidents daughters. She's despicable.
I missed it__hadn't even heard about it.

I'm surprised that Wolf Blitzer didn't give her a good hard spanking.

How about D Kucinich, the recently dethroned Democrat flake from Cleveland taking a seat on FOX National? I wonder who he's replacing? Word on the street is that FOX will be dumping about half it's staff by summertime in an effort to broaden it's appeal.

The 'right to bear arms' also allows the Government to determine which 'arms' civilians are allowed to own. DUH
Meaning you can own all th ewmuskets you want. That's what the forefathers envisioned. They'd recoil at today's weapons.
Just as you can't buy an RPG today, so will it mean you can't buy an assault rifle in the near future.
Case closed.
Those are very good points, but we all know facts are a total waste on righties.

He never got past 1+1 in school.

He's proven that with his brainless argument.

He gets so angry, he just can't stop, even when he realizes how stupid he looks.

That's what's fun about him.

Next he'll tel you he never said any such thing, and you have to find the post and 'prove it'!!

Here is the post what I said:
You said:
"It doesn't work like that. You have a 25% chance of hitting something whether it's one shot or 100 shots."
I said:
If you fired 25 rounds & they hit 25% of the time, you shot about 6 people.
If you shoot 100 bullets & hit 25% of the time, you shot 25 people.
Are you really this stupid?"
1)_ My point was that you hit more when you shoot 100 rounds than you would at 25 rounds regardless of your rate.
2) In my example, I said I Hit 25%- not that my rate was 25%. Is that too difficult???
3) Are you now arguing that if you shoot at a success rate of 25% you don't shoot more people when you fire 100 rounds over 25 rounds?

Life expectancy for white males when SS was passed was approximately 62 years and the retirement age was 65, so more than half of the taxpayers never received any benefits. Now the life expectancy is 77 years and early retirement is available at age 62. Surely that must tell you that some adjustment to the program is required for financial solvency.
They have already adjusted, and I agree adjust some more. What I do not agree with is getting rid of it entirely.

Yesterday was a Obama/ Media Circus!!
Why the Liberal Media not camping in Chicago reporting on the gun violence against black youth? Chicago being a state with the strictest gun laws shows that stricter Laws doesn’t reduce gun violence, last year in Chicago over 500 deaths due to gun violence, not a peep from the Liberal Media!!

s Another Civil War on the Horizon?
posted on January 14, 2013 by J. Matt Barber

civil warA pretty, young, auburn-haired woman – mid-20s – drove down a lonely country road somewhere in Oklahoma. Appearing in her rear-view mirror, at the back windshield, were two menacing orbs of light floating amid ashen dusk. The guttural roar of a souped-up big block shook the tiny Volkswagen Rabbit as a van-load of inbred thugs lurched left and drew alongside her. A ponytailed passenger taunted inaudibly and blew foul kisses between crude hand gestures. He pointed for her to pull over as the van repeatedly swerved dangerously close.

Inside the car a man, asleep in the reclining passenger seat, was startled awake by the commotion. He rose and darted his head about, calmly assessing the situation. This only spurred the evil-bent goons.

As they ramped-up efforts to run the car off the road, the man reached in the glove box, withdrew a military-grade, semi-automatic handgun – an “assault weapon,” if you will – and, with intentionality and great theatre, leaned across his young bride, pointing the gun out the open bay and directly between dirt bag’s booze-flushed eyes.

Van vanished amid a plume of gray smoke as wheels locked, tires screeched and “assault vehicle” fishtailed – jerking to a halt with taillights aglow skyward from the ditch.

Not a shot was fired.

Back at the couple’s rural farmhouse, two boys – boys who would not be orphaned that night – played. We most likely played – my brother Pete and I – with assault rifles fashioned from sticks. I always love to hear Dad retell the story. He does it with an ornery, satisfied grin.“No one’s taking my guns,” he’ll say.

This might be a good time for me to add that no one’s taking my guns either. Period. And if Dianne Feinstein orders me from her lofty perch on the left-coast to retroactively register them with some federal autocracy, I think I might just forget I even have them. Tens of millions of law-abiding, God-fearing Americans just like me and Dad, I suspect, feel the same way.

I love guns. Grew up with ‘em. As a former police officer with 12 years in the U.S. military, I know how to use them, too – use them well. I plan to buy more – a bunch more. In fact, who’s to say I don’t already have a veritable arsenal?

Point is, tain’t Big Brother Barack’s nor any other candy-keistered-liberal-cream- puff’s bloody business whether I do or not.

ee, the left’s totalitarian brand of “gun control” has nothing to do with controlling guns – or bad guys. Rather, it has everything to do with controlling – disarming – the law-abiding masses. It’s not about protecting the innocents. It’s about rendering the innocents defenseless.

Clichés become clichés for a reason, and the old cliché,“If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns,” rings as true today as it did whenever it was that some homespun fellow coined it.

I was disgusted – physically sickened, in fact – when Barack Obama, president of these Divided States of America, shamelessly exploited the Sandy Hook memorial service to lay the groundwork for his unconstitutional gun-confiscation scheme. It was slimy to the extreme.

I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. That’s what liberals do. Every time some evil nutjob – pumped full of psychotropic drugs by NEA members who don’t want to deal with them – shoots-up the place, the left’s collective mouth begins to water.

“Now, finally, now!” they say, rubbing together soft hands that have never felt the surprising weight of a Sig Sauer 45.“This time we have the political momentum for sweeping gun control. This time the American people will roll over and let us trample the Second Amendment beneath jackbooted executive order or congressional fiat.”

“Let no good crisis go to waste,” right, Rahm?

Well, not so fast, cupcake. As the U.S. Constitution guarantees – and as the Supreme Court has repeatedly affirmed –“the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

It ain’t,“should not be infringed,” or “shall finally be infringed once ‘progressives’ have assumed total dominance.”

No,“shall not” means shall not.

There’s only one way to take my guns, slick, and that’s through a constitutional amendment – an amendment that will never happen – ever. Try it any other way and we have a problem.

And this whole “assault weapons ban” angle? Sensationalist propaganda. I prefer to call them “defense weapons.” Contrary to left-wing revisionist pabulum, the Second Amendment’s not about squirrel hunting.

Notice a trend here? What do Sandy Hook Elementary, Aurora Colorado’s Century 16 theatre and Columbine have in common? They’re all “gun free zones.”

Places you don’t see mass murder and mayhem? Well, there’s a reason bad guys largely avoid shooting-up gun shows, ranges, households with signs that say:“This home insured by Smith & Wesson” and Texas in general. It’s because they know – even while thick-skulled liberals don’t – that, as recently noted by the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre,“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

Oh, that rather than “gun free zone,” Sandy Hook had a sign reading:“Staff heavily armed and trained. Any attempts to harm those herein will be met with deadly force.” Might some of those beautiful babies have still died if the P.E. coach and four MP5-bearing teachers had ended the bloodshed soon after it began? Perhaps. But how many precious lives could have been saved?

No, you won’t disarm me. You’re not going to neuter my household and tear away my ability to defend my wife and precious babies like Dad did all those years ago.

I really, really hope this president and his authoritarian cohorts in Congress will slow down, take a deep breath and realize that, right now, they’re playing a very dangerous game of chicken. If they try what I think they might, but hope they don’t, I fear this nation – already on the precipice of widespread civil unrest and economic disaster – might finally spiral into to utter chaos, into a second civil war.

But then again, that may be exactly what they have in mind.

The encounter was breathtakingly brief: a surveillance video showed a gunman outside the Empire State Building on Friday pulling a pistol, pointing it at two police officers, their firing at him and his falling to the sidewalk.

The morning after a shooting at the Empire State Building left two people dead and nine passers-by injured, normality returned. More Photos »

All the yelling and cries of pain occurred out of camera view, just north of where the gunman, Jeffrey T. Johnson, collapsed and died: nine bystanders were struck, cradling bloody arms or lying on the sidewalks and curbs.

The police commissioner, Raymond W. Kelly, confirmed on Saturday that all nine were wounded by police bullets, bullet fragments or shrapnel from ricochets. Mr. Kelly also confirmed that the shooter, Mr. Johnson, never fired another shot after killing a former co-worker, Steven Ercolino, moments earlier.

“We had a witness that said that Johnson fired at the police,” Mr. Kelly said Saturday.“But the final count of the shells, it appears that that is not the case.”

It was the second time in two weeks that police officers fired fusillades on the crowded streets of Midtown — 28 shots fired between the two episodes — and with it, there were once again questions of police protocol in urban settings. In the first shooting, no bystanders were struck when officers fired 12 shots at a man with a knife just south of Times Square.

The nanosecond speed at which a shooting plays out is followed by hours of analysis, second-guessing and study.

There is no national data on how often bystanders are struck by police bullets; Geoffrey P. Alpert, a criminologist at the University of South Carolina and an expert on the police use of force, said that hitting innocent civilians “doesn’t happen very often, but it happens.”

He added:“The rule of thumb is that you do not put civilians in the line of fire, but the rule of thumb is also that you don’t let a murderer get away.”

In many police shootings, stray shots are almost inevitable; a study based on New York’s annual firearms discharge reports indicated that officers hit their targets 34 percent of the time.

“It’s a tense situation, people are scared and moving,” Professor Alpert said.“It’s not like the movies, where you can shoot the gun out of his hand.”


Trained Police hit bystanders in armed exchange where th egunman didn't even fire his weapon!!

So much for the fantasy of an armed security guard taking on a shooter.

All it would do is result in far more casualties, and the likely death of the security guard, with his measly handgun against a powerful assault rifle.

So the wingnuts piss and moan about losing their assault rifles.

They claim the nation is broke, we can't afford to take care of people, we must cut spending.

We can't have unemployment pay, teachers, police, firemen, healthcare.

Then they say we need to hire security guards for EVERY school in America.

Security guards are free??

How can these people be so stupid??

Because they are that stupid.

I'd like one of them to tell us where the money comes from for all this training and hiring.

But they won't.

They know when their stupidity is out in the open.
