Funny- you insisted polls said draft dodger was going to win the night before the election.
How are those 14 swing states working out for you, Dumbo?
Gee, support for stricter gun control wanes...
Imagine that..

"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."

CBS News Poll
Mar 26, 2013

So according to the most recent survey if we add those that believe the laws are sufficient with those that want less restrictions we have 50% against stricter laws and 47% for stricter laws.

Tick, tock.....

So to me that looked like you were saying you'd been shot no two separate instances. And arisen from the dead.

But I should have known that was wrong, because Satan doesn't arise from the dead, right?

Enjoy your shooting fantasies, though...:)

McCarthy III is a raving radical nutball who supports torture, believes there's a "jihad" out to get all of us, wrote for the Natinoal Review, and believes Obama should've been "disqualified" for "associating with radicals."

He's a raving asshat and worthless rightie turd, IOW. Dismissed.

Les dear.

Lick away... your boyfriend missed again.

The disarming of German civilian population was accomplished by Eisenhower, not by Hitler, no matter how hard you roll around and stomp your fat little feet.

Now DL, take your boyfriend's fingers out of your ears and listen: I didn't say, suggest, imply or believe that Eisenhower didn't have the right to disarm Germany.

Lick away, DL... you are still oozing.

How many reason would you like???
Several competitions designed for the AR
My mini 14 becomes an assault rifle just as soon as I put a tri pod or bipod on it that I use for shooting ground squirrels......
My AR is my favorite coastal deer hunting rifle as it is far lighter than a mini 14 and has a handle on the top
Many of my hunting rifles are now assault weapons because I have a thumb hole stock used by all pro target shooters and a muzzle break that reduces recoil.
My shot gun I keep on my boats has pistol gips and a muzzle break so it is considered an assault weapon.
And the number one reason is..........
What is the difference between a AR and a mini 14 that makes the AR an assault weapon??
They both fire the same round at the same number of rounds per minute???????
