Nice try. That's a frightwingnut home school advocacy website. Try and find something else, like WorldNutDaily.com . Now, post those other 20.

<quoted text> trying to buy firearms as a felon though is fairly safe.

Here is an Idea why dont we FIRST try to enforce the laws already on the books BEFORE making new laws.
_Which current laws would keep Boston terrorists from getting guns to murder Officer Collier?

_Which current laws would prevent most recent massive shootings?

_Right-wingers support the 1st & second Amendments of the Constitution because usually, they mostly apply to Caucasians.
So, we felt a bit safer as we thought skin color would help Law-enforcement triage/profile potential terrorist/murderers

_Now, we are facing Caucasian terrorists, too. FBI is in a pickle; how do we profile potential Caucasian terrorists?

Well since you brought Race into this.
If these new laws are passed, do you think the Police are going to stop upper class white people to look for illegal guns or are they going to stop people in the inner city.
and if Law enforcement finds a middle age white person like me with an illegal gun , am I going to face as much jail time as an Afro American Youth?
Go check out how drug laws are enforced and who gets arrested and tossed in jail. These gun laws are going to be enforced the same way. If I was a real racist , I would want these new laws on the book , as they means thousands of minority youth are going to jail for a long time because of them.
for the Record I believe drug laws, along with sex and gambling laws are a waste of money, destroy more live then they save and are just dumb over all.

.....You don't. No law will ever make you safe from a crazy. The difference between Adam and the bombers is the FBI stopped watching the older one after another country suggested we should! Going back and getting training should have sealed the "We better watch this one", deal,but didn't. Oversight, stupidity? Was anyone fired? Someone dropped the ball on that trail. Adam? Something sent that boy over the rainbow into mass murder and those in power don't want to say what it was. I'd like to see a law against that kind of censorship.

_Profiling by skin-color is just about doomed
It's almost impossible to profile the "Majority" (time consuming/too expensive)

_Most recent mass murderers are young men and mostly Caucasians under 50....

_It's quite scary when you think the next mass murderer is likely to look just like your grand-son?????

_Well, we can't prevent all vehicular accidents, should we quit looking for ways to keep our roads safer?

_We can't prevent all crazy folks from killing, but we can make it harder for crazy and sane folks to commit mass-murders...

_Regarding Boston brothers: If they were from a non-white country, FBI would never give them room to execute their nefarious plan. The Boston brothers (Caucasians from Russia) did not match current FBI's profile list. Profiling by race is a flawed tool....

guess you are new here. I been pretty open about the fact that my wife is not a Caucasian . And as to the race of my Grandchildren I dont know what race they will be either, beside mixed.
I just want to leave them a free country not mired in debt, unlike liberals who have no problem leaving there children a country in debt up to its eyeballs and all freedoms restricted.

Country in debt?
I bet you believe China is holding most of our debt...
_Look at the Stock Market.... We owe most of our debt to fellow Americans

_I'd worry about not able to afford a good college education for my kids, not the national debt. As always, America will take care of itself. No other country is this world is a close second to America!

_That "National Debt" talk is a trick GOP crooks are using to block Government from investing on the people, making sure more money is made available for much more Tax breaks for the wealthy (like Mitt Romney and The Donald...)

_By hogging all the wealth, they wanna make sure your children remain slaves to big-business....

It's remarkable how the right has suddenly developed a conscience about "what we'll leave our children and grandchildren." Sadly, it isn't about children without health care, or decent schools for our grandchildren, let alone decent air to breath or water to drink.

No, it's the phony baloney "crisis" of the debt, being pushed by the right (after being ignored as Bush pushed it far higher) solely to promote austerity...which will kill far more children than any debt ever would.

If you really do care about children, you're going about it totally the wrong way.

It's by design (class-cleansing strategy).

The racist roots of the democrat party's lust for 'gun control'

"Before the election Governor Scott had organized and armed the colored militia, alleging that it was necessary to protect them against violence. This action was very objectionable to the democratic party...."

"Immediately after this election, outrages commenced against the colored people by the Ku-Klux, and were committed in great numbers, through the winter and spring, in the counties of Spartanburgh, Union, York, Newberry, Chester, and Fairfield...."

"...He speaks of murders committed in York County as communicated to him by his chief; of a raid upon which he went to arrest and murder the county treasurer of York, who escaped from them ; gives the names of chiefs and members in the town of York; describes their disguise; states that it was part of their business to disarm negroes, and that their object was political—" to carry the negro for the democratic party," (pp.1303-1370.)

"...The, organization of what were called "democratic clubs"—secret societies, designed to seize the Government by violence in the event of the assurance of the election of Seymour and Blair--which clubs became afterwards the Ku-Klux of infamous notoriety for blood and cruelty..."

I been worried about the debt for a long time.
One of the reason I was not upset when the Republican lost in 2006 and 2008 was because under Bush the Republican forgot they where the party of fiscal responsibility and began spending our tax dollars like Sailor on shore leave in Bangkok.I ws hoping a defeat would bring them to their senses and have them stop being the Democrat lite party.
Under Obama our economy is growing at 2.2% per year at best while our debt is growing at 4.4% a year. How long can we maintian that.
And Liberals I might add would have it grow even faster if they could as there are many thing they think we should be spending money on.
