So you have never heard or seen the phrase "minorities and women encouraged to apply" on a job listing???

The problem is stopping criminals and headcases from getting guns as easy. Nobody is trying to stop regular people from having guns, just stop as many criminals from it. The repubs should be as interested in doing this as libs.

What have the repubs and gun fanatics done to stop or slow it? If they don't offer up solutions then stop bitchin about the libs passing their own laws to do it.

Well, we have black president, which would be fine if he wasn't a gay criminal coke snorting terrorist.

As far as the debt being paid, your grandchildren's grandchildren will be paying off the debt that the Larry Lovin fudge-packing Obama has rung up.

I know - Different debt, but the debt that you replied to was never a debt in the first place, just an extortion threat.

You don't stop criminals and nutcases from getting guns by passing gun ban legislation that will only be followed by the law-abiding. This is nothing but feel-good, knee-jerk reaction legislation that will not do a damn thing but further infringe on our 2nd Amendment rights. Period.

The last several generations of blacks have no idea what that is. We owe them nothing, and the people we might owe something to are long dead.

They do offer up solutions but no lib will even listen twice like they do with all policies offered by the Republicans. If you want to stop school shootings, then have the good guys armed in the schools. That's it. Pretty simple, but the problem is that schools are not a federal issue, they are a local issue and every city, town or county can arm their schools if they so desire.

So far, DumBama and the Democrats have offered no real solutions, just an opportunity to use the unfortunate for political gains.

What exactly do you think the term "ban" means. AR-15's are NOT "military war weapons". They are semi-auto, civilian versions of the full-auto M-16 that simply LOOK LIKE their military counterparts. Go educate yourself a little bit. And the 2nd Amendment has absolutely NOTHING to do with hunting.

They look just like military weapon and with simple file and few adjustmenst can be full auto WMD..

So you think the 2nd amendment allows for the citizens to own what the military owns???

Once again it's more same-old-same-old. Offer your own solutions or don't complain what IS done.

So you are ok with someone being denied a position even though they are the most and best qualified, simply because of Affirmative Action?

Not that I agree with the original concept of Affirmative Action, but at least it intended simply to match diversity percentages in the workplace and school with the diversity percentages of the country. It doesn't work that way. If it did, the NBA would be less than 13% black and over 70% white now wouldn't it?

Setting aside a position for someone simply because of skin color is at least discrimination if not racism. It happens everyday.

I don't know how you are still alive after nearly 150 years, but I wasn't around when slavery was. I don't owe them a damned thing. If you owe them, donate your job, or college seat, or post graduate position.

Here is how it is different. Obama taking away everyone's guns COULD happen, but it is unlikely in the extreme. Rush Limbaugh killing 300 children COULD happen, but again, it is unlikely in the extreme.
"Someone" going on a shooting spree? It is not only likely, but as past events have shown, it is almost a certainty. THAT is how it is diffrent. Your argument is like saying that speed limits are not needed just because someone might cause a car crash by speeding.
Speed limits ?

When was the last time you were on I-75 , the speed limit might as well be 100 MPH . Almost no one is going the speed limit.

Now lets get down to brass tacks .

When someone is pulled over for speeding or running someone over while being intoxicated their is no big cry from the liberal camp or our President to restrict everyone's driving privileges and this is not a Constitutional right.

Gun restrictions based on the actions of a very small minority of gun owners is nothing more then collective punishment.

Tell me why , when you purchase a hand gun you have to identify your race and also declare if you are Hispanic/Latino or not.

Is this a symbol of equal rights ?

Gun laws are just like locks ; The only work on honest people.

In some way you are correct. The weapons of the military and civilian difference have already been laid to rest by the Supreme Court years ago. So today the debate is about civilian. Problem is nowhere in our Constitution is there a civilian police force mentioned. Civilian On Patrol Service (COPS) are simply civilians paid. The police are not going to want to go back to bolt action rifles and revolvers. I have yet to have anyone give a good reason the police should have weapons above a private civilian guarding their family, home or land.

your basic assumption that sworn LEOs and our legitimate institutions and military are your enemies is pretty insane.
