Well, I read the list of Obama's executive orders. I saw nothing in there except guidance and clarification of already enacted laws, by the executive branch. There was no taking of rights, no confiscation of guns, nothing earth shattering. Then I listened to a little of Rush that I had taped yesterday.....and I know I heard the Federal Government workers building a concentration camp next door as soon as it got dark last night....I think I hear those helicopters coming for me now....Chuckles !!
To get serious, I am no fan of executive orders, and while I saw nothing dangerous in the orders Oams signed yesterday, there is a congress and a court system for a reason, and IF an executive order crosses the constituional line, both should act to nullify it. That is their duty to the country.
To me, those "executive orders" looked more like his personal to do list than orders.

Question: Which bullet has killed the most people, exclusive of war, in America?.30-.30?.44mag? 9mm? 12 guage?.223?.38? Answer: None of the above. According to what I just read, the ubiquitous little .22 fired from a hand gun has done more permanent, no second chances, damage to humans in America than any other bullet. So what the Prez and Joe want to do is ban all rifles with more than one military characteristic.
Google Ruger 10/22 and you'll see you can get one for about $200. Then Google 10/22 accessories and you'll see that with a screwdriver and some pliers you can turn it into the wickedest looking assault weapon around for not a whole lot more money. The logical guy would know, though, that if you stood the factory wooden stocked rifle next to the tricked out plastic one you'd still be looking at the same gun. Same barrel, same receiver, same magazine, same trigger, same bullet and very much the same amount of danger. But the wooden stock factory unit looks like a plinker and doesn't have a military characteristic and, therefore, is safer, see? You know, it does look kinder and gentler. Knuckleheads look at the wooden one and go "Oh?" They look at the plastic one and go "Ooh!" Same gun and in a moron's hands, same kind of dead.
Most anybody who's been around guns knows that a Remington Model 700 is a bolt action rifle that holds, I think, three or four rounds. You squeeze the trigger and then you have to crank the bolt back and forth to get another round in the chamber. It's much slower than a semi-auto and it's one of the most reliable and popular deer guns ever made. Because of its toughness and laser accuracy, it's the same gun used in the military to make human heads explode at six hundred yards. See where I'm going here?
Come on, man. I'm all for figuring out how to keep AR15's away from nut-jobs and, dang it, that's what we need to do. So why can't we be smart about this? Obama just shoved us a one size fits all feet when there ain't a single foot in the room.
Do you understand that if this passes, or is made Law by Executive Order, you are NOT going to have to surrender your Assault Weapon...you just won't be able to buy another one, in the U.S.
You'll probably be able to order all you want from other Countries, though! THAT wasn't mentioned, or addressed, in any of the Reports that I've seen.
I did read Reports of Assault Weapons being shipped into this Country from other Countries, when the previous Assault Weapons Ban was in force.
With this "Global Economy", I expect the Assault Weapons Manufactuters will just start making them in other Countries and you may have to pay extra shipping, but I doubt that you'll have any trouble ordering all of them that you want. But, I wouldn't advise re-selling them to anybody in this Country, once you receive them. But, for your own Personal use... I doubt there will be much change, at all. That's the same thing that I think about the Large-capacity Mags, too!

I don't listen to Rush bloviate any more, but if he was dead...I assume his family would miss him; as would his employees, the companies that advertise on his show; as well as the 20 million who listen to his show.

Does any body know what the difference in the two parties are?
Your question reminded me of an old joke I heard years ago. I thought I would share it here. LOL

President Clinton was jogging in the park one day when he came across a young boy with a litter of puppies. He stopped to ask the boy about the pups. The boy told him that they were recently born and were all Democrats. This made Clintton very happy as he finished his jog. A few days later, while joggging, he again saw the same boy and stopped to inquire about the pups. The little boy proudly told him that they were doing fine and they were all Republicans. This shocked the President and he said "You told me last week that they were all Democrats, Why do you say they are Republicaqns now?" The boy replied, "Last night their eyes opened."

Also remember these famous words. "The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.

I thought real people LEARN. So he has probably lost some advertising with each new idiocy. And those 20 million are not really listening. Most can hear but they are not listening.

I support the second amendment. That does not mean that I support everyone's right to own a machine gun. I own several guns and not to boast, I can shoot pretty well and I enjoy it. I have no intenton of turning my guns over to the government and I do not know ONE Democrat around here who is willing to (or advocating for that) either. I suspect the vast majority of Republicans support the same basic things that I do.
Obama,(and every THINKING person) realizes that there is no legislation that is going to completely protect kids from a nut with or without a gun hell bent on killing them.
I do not however think it is unreasonable to limit magazine sizes and outlaw those already in circulation, anymore than it is unreasonable to limit public access to dynamite.
Where I and what I call the gun nuts differ is that I KNOW without a doubt that IF my government sends the U.S. military after me, it will not matter what weapons I have, they will capture me or kill me if they wish to. These idiots think the military that defeated the Nazis and the Japanese, will be cowed by the awesome firepower located in their basement.
If reasonable gun owners would shut those folks up, they would do their cause and the second amendment a big favor.

I do not know what the answer is to preventing another Newtown or Columbine...but I don't subscribe to the notion that the answer is more guns, unless those guns are in the hands of trained professionals.

I'll keep my high capacity magazine loaded, in my pistol, in my nightstand next to me. I'll use any new 10-round magazines when I'm shooting cans or targets in the woods. No outrage here.

There's no conceivable way they could (or would) come and confiscate unregistered gun accessories that I own, and I won't throw a tantrum over the "inevitability" of such an impossible scenario.

Same as in the 90s -- our assault rifles will be worth double or triple what they were when we originally purchased them.

Do you honestly think that a supposed tax break for the wealthy is keeping you from paying your electric bill or from buying any type of medication you need?

Isn't there a "Champy's" restaurant in Nashville? And didn't the Owner relocate after "Katrina" hit New Orleans? I may be wrong about that, but I think I read that somewhere.

Lol! Well, I know that he has a Mother because she's the One who revealed that he has a chronic "Boil", I think, or something like that, on his backside (Ass), that won't heal and it made him ineligible for the Military draft, when we had it...and that he flunked out of College, if memory serves.
She revealed all of this not that long ago, so I assume she's still living.

You are absolutely right! I had already thought of the ones who already own them...your assets will increase "a bunch", so what are you complaining about?

1) No they are not owned only by Republicans, many Dems own stocks in them. The difference is that Democrats put PEOPLE above these companies. No matter what Mitt said corporations are not people. They are created to do one thing, make money. They have no heart and no soul and they think nothing of grinding people up and spitting them out if it suits them monetarily. Something needs to be a check on their power and that task falls to government.
2) You will never convince ME that unearned income is somehow more valuable than honest labor. Especially since it is Republicans who claim to revere work...as long as someone else does it for them.
3) I endeavor to "live by the New Testament", I wrote endeavor because I fall short many times a day. Republicans wish to return to life under the law as they simultaneously claim to be "Christians" ....a bit hypocritical isn't it ??
By the statement:"The difference is that Democrats put PEOPLE above these companies." DO you mean put them on welfare and food stamps? OH MY I guess you will pay for it with your vote. Have a good day lib.

Topix is reporting this morning that that stellar member of congress Michelle Bachman has been unable to find anyone to co-sponsor her bill to repeal Obamacare....the genius of the lower chamber is apparently unaware that the other 30 some odd times that the house repealed Obamacare did nothing to stop the ACA since the Senate would not even take up repeal and if they did and passed it Obama assured congress he would veto it.
This woman who claims to stand for fiscal responsibility in government wishes to add to the 50 million dollars the House has already wasted repealing the ACA. What is that definition of insanity again ???
OOOPS...I forgot, it is only Democrats that are guilty of wasting taxpayer's money....
First "ACA"????????

Does this ring a bell. The house has the purse strings. All they got to do is vote no to appropriations for OBAMACARE. Nothing would work. They don't even have to go through the Senate where ditry harry will not put his majority to the test by voting. This gives the senators a out when they want your vote by telling you they did not vote for or against a bill.. Convenient huh,, and it applies to both parties. Have you heard the Repub Senators trying to change or get a vote. No they like their DEM associates, just laugh in silence.

Yes, it is just like OBAMA spending 75 Million to implement the 23 exec orders he signed yesterday.
