Then get the F over it. There are a bunch of people who would eliminate guns it was in their power, and I don't think "Obama" is one of them. You act as if "Obama" is the sole man in this country with all the power and he controls everything. You forget about Congress, and the powers they hold. No one is taking away your G-damn guns. WTF is wrong with you people?? In fact, gun control laws have been more relaxed since Obama's presidency, not because he single-handedly made them so, but because Congress passed bills that he signed into law.

So get a grip.

When we talk about the violence that has left nearly 50,000 dead in Mexico over the past five years, we usually focus on Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, or the Juárez cartel, but it may be time to include the U.S. National Rifle Association cartel.
Granted, the 4.3 million-member NRA — the most powerful pro-gun rights lobbying group in Washington — is not in the drug trafficking business.
But judging from what Mexican President Felipe Calderón said earlier this week during a joint news conference with President Barack Obama in Washington, and from what U.S. gun control groups state, the NRA and other U.S. gun owners’ rights organizations have a huge tacit responsibility in the bloodshed that is taking place in Mexico.
The NRA and other gun lobby groups consistently block efforts to restrict the massive sale of high-power assault weapons across the border, which end up in the cartels’ hands, they say. In particular, Calderón cited the gun lobby-supported U.S. decision to lift a ban on assault weapons that expired in 2004. Calderón said he spent much of the time during his meeting with Obama on Monday urging him to seek a restoration of the ban.
“It’s been shown that when there is an excessive, quick availability of weapons in any given society, there is an increase in violence,” Calderón said at the joint news conference after their meeting.“The expiration of the assault weapons ban in the year 2004 coincided almost exactly with the beginning of the harshest period of violence we’ve ever seen.
“During my government, we have seized over 140,000 weapons in four years. And I think that the vast majority have been assault weapons, AK-57s, etc. And many, the vast majority of these weapons, were sold in gun shops in the United States,” Calderón said, adding that there are an estimated 8,000 gun shops along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Calderón did not mention the NRA by name, but leading Mexican activists are pointing at it as one of the main obstacles to reducing the mass killings in their country.
Why is Holder protecting the NRA by refusing to turn over documents?

And those that don't receive the mark of the beast will not be able to buy or sell. So if you can't buy or sell how are you going to survive? Illness and hunger will force many to receive it. Once you receive it you cannot enter the kingdom of God. Only those that have strong faith and don't receive it will suffer on this earth but God will receive them in heaven and the ones that do receive the mark of the beast will burn in eternal Hell.

You should be blaming the federal government
and Eric Holder for his part in supplying weapons to Mexico. You know, the one congress held in contempt and is part of the Obama regime.

Two things here rider:
1. The NRA does not " block efforts to restrict the massive sale of high-power assault weapons across the border". Any sale of guns between the US and Mexico would go through the Federal Government and would only be to the Mexico Government. If the Government would simply enforce the laws on the books to control who buys on this side of the border the number of guns going to Mexico would decrease. F&F was a total lack of enforcement of those laws and actual violation of the laws period. I have no problem going through the background check but when a convicted felon can go through the check and get a gun the executive branch of the Federal Government is not doing its job.
2. What is Mexico doing to stop the drugs coming this way that are finacing the Cartels so they can buy the weapons? Their argument is that if drug users in the US would quit using drugs the demand goes down and the flow of drugs from south to north would slow or stop. It is the fault of the US. The Mexico Government was willing for years to turn a blind eye to drug cartels since many in office were bribed and it brough a lot of US dollars back to Mexico. They danced with the devil and lost.
Fine I can use that same logic.
If Mexico would put into law a death penalty for those in the drug trade and enforce it then they would eliminate the buyers of the weapons going north to south. It is the fault of Mexico.
I will carry it one more.
According to Mexico the US treats illegal immigrants bad.
Mexico needs to look at how they treat immigrants (legal or illegal).
This goes way beyond the pot calling the kettle black to a mjor order of magnitude.

Me get a grip?

I think I've had a good grip of what is going on in our Government since 1999 when I quit working with them.

They don't call me Heavy Fed because I'm fat.

It's all smoke and mirrors.

The appearance of power is much more important than actual power.

Obama... or whoever is elected President, besides Ron Paul... they are all on the same team.

They pretend to be fighting each other, kind of like the WWF... but really they only work together to make it look like we have a choice.

The America we knew is definitely over. Dems and repubs are all in bed together and they pick and choose who is gonna be the next president.They act like they don't get along but they all go out drinking together and whoring. States that are tired of our corrupt government should seriously consider secession.
