It's kind of a shame that all the money used to form this Super PAC and operate it, won't be going to pay down the 20 trillion dollar federal debt.

But it's OK the wealthiest Americans only pay an effective rate of tax around 14% while working class folks have to sweat it out all day and 27% of that in taxes.
Guns are stupid. I hope her, her Super PAC, and her family make an impact and gun laws change.
Less guns is better.

I don't wish any ill will on anyone, but I think she's barking up the wrong tree...that money spent will be wasted, just like Obama's criminally negligent investment of the people's money in Solyndra.

I hate it when the uneducated, dirty underbelly of society, who didn't pay attention in school, didn't pursue a non-criminal lifestyle, winds up working the drive up window at a McDonald's or working as a sandwich artist at Subway, and pi$$es and moans about stealing from others by using the guns of government to rob people of their wealth to get it for themselves. Obama's minions and supporters, the welfare entitlement class, is about to get a rude awakening in the reality of what a 20 trillion dollar spending deficit is going to mean...you'll be eating your own poo just to eat, while living in your cars, LOL. And if you try to break into someone else's place to steal your way to prosperity, BAM goes the burglar buster! Ahahahahahaha.

I wish there was a bit of sympathy from the Dem inspired tax increases on the middle class that has taken place during these hard times. that does not even include the inflation and the energy prices artificially kept high.

Working class folks pay high taxes because of communists like you.

You just want the Govt to become a communist govt so it can tax everyone into slave status.

And now we know why Loughner wanted her dead.

No, the wealthy pay lower taxes because of mindless repeater parrots like yourself.
I do not want a communist government.
G. Washington himself said congress should not tax the , only blood sweat and tears of the people. Instead they were to tax only commerce. Business.
It hurts me to pay $1000 in taxes a month. I have to make daily decisions based on what I have to save eery month to pay my taxes.
But the wealthy only have to take their pile of money ad place it the correct tax shelter and they make money on the money and pay less of it in taxes.
PErsonally I beleive capital gains should be taxed at no less then 50%. Capital gains is basically the money your money earns. Increasing the taxes on it will promote increased investment, to make moe money.
The GOP argument that rich people who get taxed too much will just quit investing is pretty dumb really.
When you or I have to pay an unexpected bill, we have to work overtime, cash in a vacation, hit our savings, whatever. We don't just quit working because the bills are higher. So to believe the rich will simply abandon the country if the taxes aare raised 10% is the beleif of one of those famous underinformed voters.

To ..........

Thank you for your message about a federal ban on assault weapons. I appreciate knowing your thoughts about this issue.

I am not opposed to the possession of guns. Americans are entitled to own and use guns responsibly and we must honor and respect the right to bear arms set forth in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

I STAND WITH THE ILLINOIS LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY IN SUPPORTING THE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN. The 1994 federal assault weapons ban expired on September 13, 2004. For 10 years, the ban was an effective law enforcement tool that dramatically reduced the number of crimes committed with assault weapons. In 1993, assault weapons accounted for more than EIGHT PERCENT of all guns used in crimes. In 1995, the first year of the ban, assault weapons accounted for just under four percent of guns used criminally and by 2002, this percentage had dropped even further, to slightly over one percent. While the ban did not totally eliminate the illegal use of assault weapons, it was an important measure that increased public safety without infringing on the rights of average gun owners.

Military-style assault weapons are designed for one thing—firing a large number of bullets in a short amount of time. These firearms were the types of weapons used in the senseless acts of violence recently committed at Sandy Hook Elementary School and the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Following these tragic events, I met with law enforcement leaders in Illinois and what I heard was that we must take steps to limit military-style assault weapons and magazines to reduce the scale of gun violence and help keep our communities safe.

I will continue to respect gun owner’s Second Amendment rights while standing with law enforcement officers in the effort to help protect our communities from the violent crimes committed with assault weapons. Although we may disagree on this issue, I will keep your thoughts in mind as the Senate considers measures to prevent gun violence.

Sincerely,

Richard J. Durbin

United States Senator
