All you dumb asses.

Reuters Obama media left something out.

As is not surprising in a cross-sectional ecological study, we found some heterogeneity in the firearm fatality rates among the states within each level of the legislative strength scores (eg, South Dakota has weak gun control laws and low rates of firearm fatality). Such heterogeneity is to be expected and is the reason to conduct a study that involves all 50 states.

I would expect that response from a Modern Pseudo Liberal when the facts are stacked against them including their model city of Chicago has proved to be a failure and they are blaming the surrounding states for Chicago's Problems and the Surrounding states are not having the gun problems that Chicago is having.

The point is gun violence is up while guns are illegal.
Makes it easier for the criminals.

Americans More Likely than Canadians to Believe in Bigfoot

By: Life's Little Mysteries Staff

Date: 05 March 2012 Time: 10:27 AM ET

Among the several thousand who were surveyed, there was no correlation between political affiliation and likelihood of belief across the board. While Liberal Party voters in Canada were the least likely to believe in Bigfoot, Democrats in the U.S. were the most likely.

<quoted text>dude, I have a newsflash for you. I'm a LIBERAL with a large collection of weapons, including a M-1 Garand, M-48 Mauser,'03 Springfield, some nice hunting rifles and a number of sidearms.

I am also very much in favor of background checks. I really don't understand the opposition to them. Having kooks and felons get their hands on weapons give us responsible gun owners a bad name and makes it harder to own them.

Its kinda like the Police code where they don't rat bad cops out. That really doesn't make sense to me. If I'm a good cop, why would want to protect some scumbag bad cop? They only give police departments a bad rep.

so maybe you can be serious and explain the opposition to background checks to me??

GUN CONTROL: KEEPING YOUR ROUNDS IN THE BLACK
You are a typical Liberal hypocrite!

You are out of line, dude!

Get back on line, you had been told by your Liberal mind owners to blame terrorism on a few Muslims only but all gun owners on few shootings.

You are a confused Liberal!

We Conservative have different opinions but ALL Liberals are controlled the same.

Ask yourself: Do I hate America? If the answer is yes then you are a typical scum Liberal else welcome to the club.

I agree there should be some control!

But not done by control freak Liberals!!!

We can only trust true Conservatives to do that kind of job.

To allow a Lion Liberal to protect the hen's pen is stupid.

Every time there is a terrorist attack we are told by the incompetent Santa Claus wannabe man-child community organizer "my Muslim religion" Barrack Benghazy Obama to not judge ALL Muslims by the action of a few.

It is about time gun owners get the same treatment!

Nope!

If every one owns a gun those fellows with mental problems will not last too long!

They will be taken care of by the intelligent ones!
