Yes, I understand "everything possible" could include removing guns from society so they cannot be obtained in any manner by criminals and the "MENTALLY UNBALANCED INDIVIDUAL."

How many criminals attempt to purchase guns legally? Define "mentally unbalanced".

Speaking of mentally unbalanced individuals, what's your solution to someone who may not yet be diagnosed, or someone who may not be "unbalanced" but has a family history?

Troops went to DRY houses after Katrina to take guns, ignoring rape victims, hurricane victims, etc.
Troops fight AGAINST liberals, not FOR them, so only conservative morons believe that liberals are behind FEMA’s crimes.
No, it’s always conservatives promoting violence - something they never figure out because they’re too lazy to even look up the word, to see what they are.
Conservatives started this civil war, and claimed it was God’s will, when intelligent people know that Satan is the Father of Lies -

You tried this crap a few weeks back and got your head handed to you. Can't learn you nothing. But thats okay. Nobody with a lick of sense is going to believe what a lying liberal has to say anyhow.

A) the laws out there now that infringe on the otherwise law abiding are not capable of stopping criminals. They need to be repealed.
B) Now law enforcement efforts focus on the law abiding. Repealing those laws will force law enforcement to focus on the true criminals.
C) Forcing someone to forgo the best means to defend themselves is immoral. In fact that should be criminal.

<quoted text>No,, I act like the mentally of the Repubs are only for the rich. It would be hard for you or anyone to prove otherwise. As far as numbers they all come from studies of the IRS reports and the US Census 2009 reports which is the only true total data there is about income. The last CBO ( the office that both sides have used for years) was in 2007. Economist have continued to build reports on these numbers released mainly 2010 and 2011 showing an even wider gap currently.
.
A 2011 study by the CBO[16] found that the top earning 1 percent of households gained about 275% after federal taxes and income transfers over a period between 1979 and 2007, compared to a gain of just under 40% for the 60 percent in the middle of America's income distribution.[16] Other sources find that the trend has continued since then.[17][18] Income inequality is not uniform among the states; as measured by the Gini coefficient: after tax income inequality in 2009 was greatest in Texas and lowest in Maine.[19]

Do you not think 60% of Americans being considered middle class yet 47-50% of Americans being on some form of government assistance affects the figures?

<quoted text>Conservative brains are blank slates that the Republican New World Order writes on, then like good little cannon fodder, they repeat the exact words, but can never come up with THOUGHTS of their own. That's the price they pay for being too LAZY to WORK, to do any research.
The facts are that conservatives vote for big government, because they don't have a clue what big government is, and they vote for those traitors who will take their guns away and they're too brain-dead to know it.
It's THEIR New World Order that is trying to take all guns from citizens because they fear an uprising once the brainless conservatives figure out how badly they've been duped, if that EVER happens.

the tax rates on the highest earners were reduced and new breaks were added during Reagan. Know your history. Lobbyists own the country now and are international enterprises that don't care about the US. Meanwhileyour big concern is making sure the mentally unstable can purchase an arsenal at wallmart without waiting.
I know what the current tax rate on the highest earners is. I also know that many of the "rich" have their income taxed twice – first at the corporate level, then again when they file a personal income tax return.

Your two biggest "concern" should be to stop lying about my stance on the mentally unstable purchasing guns, and stop expecting your government to take more money from the "rich" to give to you.

I said "could" include removing as many guns as possible from society. Even a narrow-minded thinker like you should know "everything possible" HAS to include that scenario.

I also noticed your usual tack of avoiding relevant questions.

How many criminals attempt to purchase guns legally?

Can you define "mentally unbalanced"? Are people with a family history of mental illness prohibited from purchasing guns?

Is it that you don't want to admit the only solution would be Brown Shirt tactics?

<quoted text>position is:

a) that there should be no laws if people can get away with violating them;

b) that prioritizing enforcement efforts on criminals and the mentally ill isn't warranted and is a threat to you;

c) that a person who does not join the arms race is really asking to be a shot.
You've had a lot of practice putting words in people's mouths.
