For every NRA member, there are 50 Americans who treasure their Second Amendment rights.
Even if they don't own a gun.
Please show us where in the Second Amendment you are guarenteed th eright to buy an assault weapon.

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.

Or, perhaps she'll be inspired by the first black President who fought for womens rights; appointed 2 women to the Supreme Court, fought for gay marriage, dismantled DADT, ended two wars, implemented universal healthcare...maybe she'll even meet and marry a black man as well. Maybe your grandchildren will be mixed race, maybe then a backward person like yourself will evolve.
The future is our young people, they're the ones who die in our wars. I only hope for her that you havent' turned her into a racist rightwing hater.

Yes hillbilly azzhole.
The real reason the NRA fights for gun rights.
The black genocide is the republicans dirty little secret.
As long as blacks kill each other, the white establishment is happy.
BUT when whites start committing the mass murders of women and children it fks up their plans.
Too bad.
Dumb white murders will take the blame for Obama to confiscate your guns.

<quoted text>By making the age older and older this will increase the anger towards SS and Medicare which they basically want to get rid of. And they are hoping people will die on the job before they can take advantage of either.
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.

Rudolph Hess committed suicide 25 years ago at age 93 years old with an electrical cord. Conspiracy theories have long suggested that he was murdered and the evidence covered up amid fears he was on the brink of being released and might disclose embarassing secrets about his time in British captivity. He had a suicide note. A soviet veto stopped his release. Report states that Hess killed himself using an electrical cord not belt 1.4 m from the floor. Rudolp Hess it is said would bum cigerettes from guards at Spandau Prison even though he didn't smoke then report guards to Commanding Officer. GF008 Safer World 2013. I say good riddance.

<quoted text> Let us look at it this way. If a republican president was elected and 4 years later the unemployment rate is exactly the same (7.9%), the economy had not improved, in fact was set to get much worse, would the republicans not only nominate him/her again? Much less elect him/her? I doubt it.
See Reagan.

Don't take Homer's word for it look at the unemployment graph.

Thank God for that. The day Obamas ATF thugs along with drones and gas will come to "disarm" law-abiding citizens, such a fix will be needed.

That's not correct either. All such statistics have variability, a standard deviation which may be very large.
I said I hit 25% of my targets. This makes it a done event.

This isn't saying Tom Brady's completion rate this year is 60%, this is looking at the box score & seeing he completed 18 of 30 passes.

<quoted text>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?
You're worried about people using carols name, yet waste time arguing with that fkn imbecile Eman?

On Sunday night, Spanish-language station Univision— one of the only networks to provide critical coverage of President Obama’s failures in office instead of cream-puff interviews — broke open the Fast and Furious investigation, revealing new evidence of weapons smuggling and displaying shocking new images of the bloody aftermath of the government-supported gun-smuggling program.

The Univision report undermines the integrity of the recently released DOJ inspector general report on Operation Fast and Furious, already heavily criticized as an attempt to whitewash criminal activity within the Obama administration.

The hour-long Univision report revealed the existence of another 57 guns recovered by Mexican authorities, including some of those used in the mass-murder at a party just one year after Obama’s inauguration:

On January 30, 2010, a commando of at least 20 hit men parked themselves outside a birthday party of high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez. Near midnight, the assassins, later identified as hired guns for the Mexican cartel La Linea, broke into a one-story house and opened fire on a gathering of nearly 60 teenagers. Outside, lookouts gunned down a screaming neighbor and several students who had managed to escape. Fourteen young men and women were killed, and 12 more were wounded before the hit men finally fled.

Indirectly, the United States government played a role in the massacre by supplying some of the firearms used by the cartel murderers. Three of the high caliber weapons fired that night in Villas de Salvarcar were linked to a gun tracing operation run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), according to a Mexican army document obtained exclusively by Univision News.

These 57 recovered weapons discovered are in addition to the 122 weapons referenced in a congressional report. It is chilling to learn that each weapon recovered was dumped at the scene of a crime by cartel members who had attempted, and in most cases completed, the crime of first-degree murder. It is even more disturbing to know that American Department of Justice officials knew that most of the weapons walked over the border would only be discarded by the police and recovered by Mexican authorities after they were used in a crime, and that they were indifferent to the body count being racked up, callously noting that to make an omelet, eggs had to be broken.
