I thanks you for your posts. Keep telling the truth. It really pisses them off.
I am going to keep buying. It sends a message to those who would try to take away our rights. Even if I never use the guns or ammo , I can pass to my family the tools to defend themselves and our principles of freedom. The ammo will be good for years. Still got some WWII surplus that shoots fine. Just have to clean a gun differently after shooting it.
Exactly. With the exception of those representatives in very liberal areas, most know not to mess with the gun issue. It's political suicide. If DumBama does try to sneak laws through bureaucracies, then look for a stronger mid-term turnaround than the last. We can't get rid of DumBama for four years, but we can get rid of his parties leadership. Americans are passionate about their firearms.

Or drugs. My employer was looking for an additional employee, but he can't find anybody that can pass the drug screen. Of course, it's more convenient to stay on unemployment than it is to give up pot and get a job.
That, and prying an X-Box/PS3 controller from the hands of the eternally stoned is no easy task.

Ah yes, the deflection of a progressive when faced with FACTS. Those damn facts just keep getting in the way of your agenda don't they? If only we didn't have those damn freedoms called the Bill Of Rights that allow FACTS to be made available among many other freedoms.

According to data compiled by Grant Duwe of the Minnesota Department of Corrections, guns killed an average of 4.92 victims per mass murder in the United States during the 20th century.

Knives, blunt objects, and bare hands killed 4.52 people per incident.

Fire killed 6.82 people per mass murder, while explosives far outpaced the other options at 20.82.

Of the 25 deadliest mass murders in the 20th century, only HALF involved guns.

We really can't. In fact, the states that passed law to legalize it will probably find themselves at the Supreme Court sometime in the future.

John Lott’s, back in 1997, assertion that “more guns less crime” research is confirmed has been debunked as a fraud! The simple arithmetic is that the more guns there are, the more deaths from guns there are. This is a global truism, and the U.S. isn't an exception. There is always a short lag time between the buying of guns and the deaths that inevitably result. So the pin has been pulled on this social hand grenade. People will take a few years to get complacent with their weapons, and then all hell will break loose again. The NRA loves to quote the short-term statistics. But the simple fact is that the, long-term, consequences of morons and idiots going out to buy these guns is mass murder. Of course the NRA never mentions that simple statistical fact! If more guns produces net benefits to society, then let's have more guns; if it doesn't, then let's not. The fact remains, and you can howl and cry till the cows come home, firearm homicide and assault cost federal, state and local governments $4.7 billion annually including costs for medical care. So you tell me – where are the net benefits to society?
Been debunked? Really? By whom? What was the methodology used to disprove the claims made? I see frequent mention he’s been debunked but no real evidence. Just liberal loons using the term debunked ad nauseam.

That's what they do. They cast accusations of lying, without proof. They say facts and statistics have been debunked, without proof. They claim to be "informed", definitely without proof.

What do you expect? They see their president and members of his administration do it constantly. They get away with it thanks to the protective (or frightened) mainstream media.

We have a party in this country that promotes irresponsibility. Have more kids, I'll give you more welfare, a bigger HUD house in the suburbs and more food stamps. Don't want to spend some of that welfare money on a cell phone, no problem, we have a cell phone and you can use up to 250 minutes per month. Can't stop overcharging on your credit card and writing rubber checks? No problem, will just force the banks and institution to stop fining you and they will make their money back on responsible honest borrowers and customers. Can't find a job that paid more than your last one that laid you off? We'll take care of that. Take your time and accept none of those lower paying jobs. Stay on unemployment for a couple of years and take it easy.
Distorted, racist claptrap I've been hearing since the '60s from right-wing haters and bozos. Can't you guys find another line of BS to spout, or are you so in love your with your traditional talking-points you can't spew anything else?

I guess that overt racism has become so unacceptable in polite society you have to hide it this way. In a way, that's a positive indicator of how much things have improved in the last 50 years...

Funny. Millions and millions of people bought McDonald's coffee every week at that temperature, and they didn't have a problem. One person burns herself so it's not her fault--it's McDonald's fault.
If you'd bothered to read the evidence, you'd see that in fact dozens if not hundreds had been burned by what was then dangerously hot coffee. McDonald's had settled out of court in most cases, and would have been wise to in this case, too. In the end they paid dearly for not doing so.

Spilling the coffee was her fault - being badly burned by spilled coffee was McDonald's fault. See if you can understand that.

I know exactly what the case was about. Did I state the case was about where she placed the coffee? But, it was indeed her stupidity which are the cause of the burns. Clearly you’re unable to reason.
Coffee is hot, it should be hot. The Coffee was 180 degrees. The proper temperature for brewing coffee is 195-205 degrees according to Specialty Coffee Association of America. The temperature of the McDonalds coffee was 180 degrees, within the recommended range.
Had the idiot not placed the cup between her legs what would the result have been?
The victim in the case was McDonalds.
Wrong on every count, typically of a right-winger. You implied the case was about her holding the coffee between her legs on the car seat, it was not. Her "stupidity" (actually, it was an accident) was not what the case was about either. The temperature of the coffee WAS what the case was about - that and McDonald's unwillingness to simply settle out-of-court, as they'd done many, many times before in burning cases.

The temperature was far too hot, and caused severe burns. McDonald's lowered the temperature of their coffee to a more reasonable 150-155 degree range after losing the case. Too bad they couldn't have done that before this woman was injured, but then corporate types aren't very smart or concerned with consumer safety, are they?

You have no idea what this case was about, clearly.
