more reason to make it more difficult for criminals, children, and the mentally ill to easily get their hands on arsenals.

Thank You.

The question is why do the selfish gun nuts and the death lobby want to continue to enable the misuse of guns?

Funny how the gun gnutters keep insisting guns aren't responsible for the crime while 90 percent of Americans insist they want to make gun owners responsible for their sales.

Since guns don't sell themselves.

Funny how that is, dr-deflection.

WRONG AGAIN, no-brainer:

To Obama's dismay, America not outraged by gun control fail, poll suggests

A new poll finds that less than half of America is upset by the Senate's failure to pass expanded background checks. That was supposed to be the gun control issue with the broadest support.

In New Poll, Support For Stricter Gun Control Law Drops Since Newtown Shootings

March 26, 2013 2:08 PM

"Currently, support for stricter gun control laws stands at 47 percent today, down from a high of 57 percent just after the shootings. Thirty-nine percent want those laws kept as they are, and another 11 percent want them made less strict.

"Partisans hold different views on gun control laws: 52 percent of Republicans want the laws kept as they are, while 66 percent of Democrats want stricter laws (down from 78 percent in February). Half of gun owners themselves want gun laws overall kept as they are, but a quarter call for stricter laws."

This poll comes a week after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat from Nevada, announced .

The findings of the poll, however, are pretty much in line with what Pew found shortly after the shootings., their bottom line was that the "public's attitudes toward gun control have shown only modest change in the wake of at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn."
http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/03/2...

"The law-enforcement support site PoliceOne.com has released the results of a massive survey in which “more than 15,000 verified law enforcement professionals” were asked 30 questions about current gun control proposals. The results may surprise you.“Contrary to what the mainstream media and certain politicians would have us believe,” writes Police One Editor in Chief Doug Wyllie,“police overwhelmingly favor an armed citizenry, would like to see more guns in the hands of responsible people, and are skeptical of any greater restrictions placed on gun purchase, ownership, or accessibility.”."

Yup! Poor little sheeple.

Mr. Obama has disdained the executive order label for “executive actions,” Mr. Mayer said. And he’s used that action to push his own policy on a variety of issues, from gun control to immigration to overseas drone strikes, The Hill reports.
For example, in 2011, the president put a stop to the deportation of thousands of illegal immigrants via a memo to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, The Hill reports.

~stomp stomp stomp~

Poor GayDavy: ninety percent of Americans support background checks.

(Reuters)- More than 90 percent of U.S. voters supported background checks for all gun buyers, while much smaller majorities were for stricter gun control laws such as bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, said a poll released on Thursday.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/02/07/us-...

Here: 91 percent, my little queen:

"Despite concerns about how information on gun owners might be used, 91 percent of registered voters support universal background checks, according to a new poll released on Thursday.

Only 8 percent of voters surveyed by Quinnipiac University's Polling Institute March 26 to April 1 stated opposition to universal background checks—something the White House, many Democrats in Congress and and gun-violence opponents are pushing in the wake of the December shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary
School in Newtown, Conn. In households with guns, 88 percent of respondents expressed support for checks."

Thank You.

The question is why do the selfish gun nuts and the death lobby want to continue to enable the misuse of guns?
Sure. Now, how do you make it more difficult for them to get them, without infringing the second amendment rights of the sane, law abiding, adults?

They don't! They want the true problem addressed! The criminals! The mentally ill! Not the guns!

Why are criminals and mentally ill not prosecuted for trying to purchase guns illegally? Why are the ones that are, not forced to do hard time or be ordered to a psychiatric facility? How are more unenforced laws going to change that?
Please answer. I notice you are a topix guerrilla. You post crap, in hopes someone buys it. When they do not, and call you on it, you run and hide.

If you are calling criminals and the mentally ill, wingnuz, then you are correct. If, however, you are referring to law abiding citizens, why would the mix be bad and lethal?
