Hell, I'm good with women in the military shooting those who rape or sexually assault them. Or maybe just bring back the good ol' Vietnam-era practice of fragging?
Let's look at the family.
Perhaps they are on the welfare roll?
Perhaps the purchesed to said gun with tax dollars. Afterall, the Boston Bombers bought thier supplies that way.
Perhaps they are O'Bama supporters.

Your LIBERAL spokesman on rape,Joe Salazar,begs to differ.
Passive resistance should be used by woman during a rape.
Throw up,urinate or say you're having your period he suggested instead of using a gun.
Because,after all,the woman may not know shes being raped and shoot the wrong person.
The LIBERAL Salazar went on to say,"Thats why we have safe zones,call boxes and whistles."

Seeing how the government gives you these rights, your remarks are NULL and VOID.
Poor teabagger.
Ahhhh, so now your ignorance is fully revealed.

Our government doesn't give us SQUAT, traitor-troll.

We The People instituted our governments to SECURE our rights for us. Our governments are nothing more than hired SERVANTS, severely LIMITED by our Constitution.

What we have now is NOT our intended Constitutional Republican form of government. It is a CONSPIRATORIALLY erected TYRANNY that is quickly degenerating into A TOTALITARIAN regime.

And this has been happening because of mindless drones such as YOURSELF. Lazy, illiterate, spineless, and servile DRONES. Ones that cannot sand on their own two feet. So they cry out to government to give, and do things that it was NEVER delegated the authority to do.

It is treasonous trolls such as >yourself< that are at fault for our current condition. You have not only betrayed your fellow citizens. But you have betrayed yourself. For your 'masters' can care less about you.

You are nothing more than a disposable TOOL. What the soviets used to call; "useful idiots". If and when your 'masters' fully get in 'power'. They will TURN ON YOU, and cast you out. For they DESPISE you as a mindless underling.

But they are NOT going to fully get in 'power'. For We The People are WAKING UP. And when we take OUR nation back. People such as yourself will be held up to ridicule and SCORN. You will be UNIVERSALLY DESPISED and HATED. And you will be lucky if you are able to get a job pulling the crusted defecation off of hairy dogs hind ends.

Take a hike, traitor-troll.

You won't get facts from [LIE-berals]
Couldn't agree with you more!

Here's something for you to CHOKE ON, traitor-troll:

"My excellent friend from Boylston,(Mr. Whitney,) has uttered, in the speech he has just made, many noble sentiments of love among men and peace on earth. I love peace not less ardently than my friend from Boylston. The bloodless victories of peace are as dear to me as to him. But I am not one of those men who cry peace, when there is no peace without slavery, injustice and wrong. My friend from North Brookfield,(Mr Walker,) and others, have spoken of the peace movements in England and on the continent, and of Richard Cobden and others of its leading spirits. I may be in error, but I have sometimes thought that the song which the peace movement has hymned into the ear of Europe during the past five years has made far easier the march of the legions Russia and Austria upon Hungary and Italy, and the march of the legions of France--of apostate republican France--upon Rome. While the people have listened with softened hearts to the songs of peace, their masters have disarmed them, and sent forth their increasing standing armies to crush every manifestation of freedom, progress, and popular rights. When tyranny is overthrown and freedom established; when standing armies are disbanded and the people armed for their own protection against arbitrary power; then I would write "peace" on the banners of the people and send them forth to make the tour of the world. My motto is "Liberty first--peace afterwards."

- Mr. Henry Wilson, June 21, 1853,[OFFICIAL REPORT OF THE DEBATES AND PROCEEDINGS IN The State Convention ASSEMBLED MAY 4TH, 1853, TO REVISE AND AMEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE Commonwealth of Massachusetts. VOLUME SECOND. BOSTON: WHITE & POTTER, PRINTERS TO THE CONVENTION, 1853.](Mr. Wilson,(Feb. 16, 1812 – Nov. 22, 1875), was a delegate to the state constitutional convention in 1853. He was elected to the United States Senate in 1855. He was reelected as a Republican in 1859, 1865 and 1871, and served from Jan. 31, 1855 to March 4, 1873, when he resigned to become Vice President. He was the 18th Vice President of the United States (1873–1875). During the Civil War, he was Chairman of the Committee on Military Affairs and the Militia, and the Committee on Military Affairs).

Not treasonous however, such as is the case with you and your kind.

Your 'master' obama is a traitor to We The People. He is subversive, in addition to being an outright liar. And you, and others like >you<, are equally guilty. For you have joined in his subversive activities. And have promoted the treason; aiding and abetting it. Which of course makes you just as guilty of treason as your 'master'. And subject to the same punishment.

CHICAGO (CBS)— Illinois State Police say they’re trying to deal with a huge backlog of applications for Firearms Owner Identification cards.

The agency received more than 28,000 applications for cards during April alone.

That’s on top of an existing backlog of nearly 76,000 applications. The state police say they are dealing with a record number of applications.

State police are supposed to approve or deny applications within 30 days.

Looks like folks are going to fix that Chicago problem themselves since Rahm-it-up-your-azz Emanuel isn't. LOL

I applied for my conceal carry permit in IN about the 15th of February haven't received it yet, because of the backlog. Rhambo may have slowed the process in Chicago on purpose.

You don't know what "treason" means, any more than you know what common sense is. You're a noisy Rightie asshat and gun-nut. You have no credibility.

Quite a nasty little p---k, aren't you? My mother's actually deceased, and probably would be very upset to live in the country you and your fellow scumbags have made of America.

Now GFY, coward.
