Well, you give the car keys to your child at the age of 16. When you leave them home alone, do you lock up all your medications and alcohol? You know that martial arts classes teach deadly moves--moves your child learns by the age of 12 if he or she started early enough? I know, I went up to black belt. By the time I hit black belt, I knew five different ways to kill a person in three moves or less.
At some point you have to put faith in your child if you believe they are capable of handling it. You can't insulate your kid from the real world their entire childhood.
Come on Ray. You keep ignoring the obvious. It is not likely a kid will kill 27 people with a car, but using an assault weapon, it's a piece of cake.
You can't insulate your kid from the real world? Isn't that what Religion, Home Schooling and Religious Schooling does/is?
I know some ways to off a person too, but I don't think I could take out 27 rapidly unless I used the Jim Jones Method of poisoning, ie. Cyanide.

The Democrats have dodged two election threats to their majority in the Senate. They clung to their majority in 2010 and even managed to get back two seats last month. But, the GOP gets a third bite at the apple in 2014, when the Democrats will be defending 20 seats against the GOP's 13. In the 13th, Maine, the GOP would be strongly favored if Susan Collins opts, as expected, to run for reelection. The Democrats, by contrast face a dangerous array of states.
Among the states Democrats will be defending are Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia, New Hampshire, Colorado, Iowa, New Mexico and South Dakota. All of these states have very strong blocks of pro-gun voters. In Michigan, the issue could come into play if Sen. Carl Levin decides to retire.
Democrats "dodged" election threats by strengthening their majority.

You know nothing about Maine. Maine's new independent Senator, A King, will caucus with Democrats and whoever replaces Susan Collins in 10 years will follow her independent streak.... READ will act nothing like a Republitard.

And if some nut who cannot get his hands on a gun tries to emulate the 1927 murder of children with dynamite?
You are convincing yourself that if we got rid of so-called assault weapons and reduced clip size, that crazed murderers would use a pool cue instead? Seriously?
It doesn't work that way. Make all the assault weapons illegal, make it illegal to have a clip more than 12 rounds, and you still won't stop an animal like Lanzo. Make it slightly more inconvenient for him? Yes, you will accomplish that. But you're not going to stop him. You only have two choices to stop a person like that: one is to make all guns illegal punishable by death which would take a Constitutional amendment, or two, you can provide armed security of some type in these schools.
No, hell no! The pool cue thing was some posts back and forth yesterday between Che, Duke, George Jeff Hilliard and UnReality I believe.
All I am saying is, it is easier to take out multitudes of people with an assault weapon than it is to take out multitudes of people with a knife, a regular gun, a rope and horse, almost anything except poisonous gas, dynamite, fire, bombs etc.

Just saw some breaking news that Vote Boner had set for this eve. and stressed earlier today that he was sure he had the votes in the House has been cancelled and House Repubs have left DC for Christmas. Speaker has failed to lead and his Plan, He called Plan B, would have failed in the Senate &/or been Vetoed by Prez.
Speaker has failed to lead, cannot control his Caucas,(Tea Party) and Cantor is salivating for his job in Jan. which will be just as inefficient and dysfunctional.
Reminder. Reason GOP held on to house is because of Gerrymandering. Democrats overall got more votes on a Natl' level than did GOP. The crap GOP is pulling now in DC is not going to help them any.

And what do you consider a "regular gun?" Better yet, what would Democrats consider a regular gun?

While I don't care for Boehner, I do like what he recently said. If our taxes are all going to go up, it's on DumBama--not the Republican Congress. It's up to DumBama to sign a bill that extends all tax cuts. If he wants to play Let's Make A Deal, then it's on him. Republicans will sign an extension of all tax cuts if DumBama agrees.

1st You didn't recognize a response when printed because of comprehension issues. 2nd, I am not trying to compete so there is No 'better or worse' score keeping on my part. 3rd, I would be wasting my time trying to explain to someone that twists & changes the wording/meaning of what others have said so that there is no longer any relevance. 4th. I don't remember accusing anyone by name of calling others a 'bunch of names' as you put it. Especially 'colorful' names. However, IF I had, I'm sure it applied. Lastly, you can be entertaining at times.

Republicans are at the lowest they have ever been, due to their obstruction and protection of the top two percent. They know this, yet they continue, even today, ignoring the majority of Americans.

Any gun/clip that contains more than 12 rounds is unnecessary and should be banned. If you need an assault weapon to hunt, then you're probably not a very good shot anyway.

Boehner has pulled his own Plan B Bill and it is not going up for vote. Speaker says he does not have enough support. Just as well. Bunch of cuts to the poor and elderly and continuation of Tax Cuts for everyone making up to $1 Million.
Fiscal Hill here we come.
Boehner needs to be an adult a realize that the people of this country want him to knock off his personal political bullshit and get a deal done. He is a disgrace.

Why would he do that after the election when the people rejected that option? You don't understand majority rule that well, do you?
