So who REALLY cares more about gun violence? The ones proposing solutions or the ones fighting tooth and nail to prevent solutions from being enacted?
The answer is obvious.
You really don't get it do you? I'm not fighting solutions. I'm fighting infringement on our constitutional rights.
When you come up with a "solution" that will actually have some effect on the lawless (you haven't yet) without trampling the rights of those who have committed no crime (which is about all the gun control lobby has been able to accomplish) I will be the first to advocate for it. You're right, the answer is obvios. You and the gun control advocates don't give a ratsass if you completely rape the constitution just so long as you can say you did "something" even though it's been tried before and has NEVER stopped criminals from obtaining guns.

Here are some inconvenient FACTS for your ignorant ass....
The United States current debt number was caused by:
- two wars we didn't pay for
- a prescription drug program ... we didn't pay for
- tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 ... that we didn't pay for
- the Bush Recession, which resulted in more government spending for the social safety-net
2/3 of the debt increase under Obama was related to policies put in place by the previous administration.
In other words, that 2/3 would have happened no matter who was President.
The remaining 1/3 increase was related to safety-net programs -- unemployment insurance, food stamps, SSI, refundable tax credits -- that respond to help families in need during down times. When the economy gets worse, these programs spend more automatically because there are more people qualifying for the benefits.
So, again, the rest of the debt would have happened under a Republican President too.
At the close of business on Jan. 20, 2009, when President Barack Obama was inaugurated, the national debt stood at
$10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the Treasury.

At the close of business this Thursday, it stood at
$16,323,083,449,604.98.

That means the debt has increased $5,696,206,400,691.90 during Obama’s presidency.

Obama is .
And then of course there's the TRUTH:

Obama can’t blame Bush for deficits any longer
By Marc A. Thiessen,April 15, 2013

So who is President Obama going to blame for our deficits now?

Last September, in an interview with “60 Minutes,” Obama laid the blame for the federal budget deficit on the policies he inherited from President George W. Bush.“Over the last four years, the deficit has gone up, but 90 percent of that is as a consequence of two wars that weren’t paid for, as a consequence of tax cuts that weren’t paid for, a prescription drug plan that was not paid for, and then the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression,” Obama declared.

Well, if those policies were responsible for 90 percent of the deficit, shouldn’t ending those policies bring the deficit back down?

In January, during the “fiscal-cliff” standoff, Obama succeeded in repealing most of the Bush tax cuts for the rich. Yes, Obama agreed to raise the cutoff to $450,000 (rather than the $250,000 he had wanted), but the vast majority of the tax cuts he opposed are now history. So he can’t blame the Bush tax cuts anymore.

He also can’t blame “two wars that weren’t paid for.” Obama has withdrawn all U.S. forces from Iraq and is on track to withdraw most, and possibly all, U.S. troops from Afghanistan during his second term. War spending, which was once as high as $186 billion, is now projected to fall to $37 billion annually from 2015 to 2021 — and zero after that under Obama’s budget. So war spending should no longer be driving the deficit.

How about Medicare Part D? Despite his complaints, Obama supports keeping the program in its current form. He has proposed reforms that would save about $13 billion annually.

As for the “worst economic crisis since the Great Depression,” the recession formally ended in June 2009. And while Obama presided over the weakest recovery since the Great Depression during his first term, his new budget projects that we will finally turn a corner next year and return to robust 3 percent growth beginning in 2014. So under Obama’s own economic projections, a weak economy should no longer be driving deficits.

In other words, the policies and problems that Obama blamed for most of the budget deficit are mostly gone. We should be headed back to the pre-Bush surpluses of the 1990s, before the tax cuts and wars and economic crisis that Bush wrought caused our deficit and debt to skyrocket.

Problems solved, right?

Heck, we should be doing even better than the 1990s. In 2010, President Obama signed the Budget Control Act, which includes $2.1 trillion in spending cuts over 10 years. With that, we are now almost at the Simpson-Bowles recommended deficit reduction ratio of $3 in spending cuts for every $1 of tax increases. If anything, our projected surpluses should be even bigger than they were during the 1990s.

So why, then, does President Obama’s budget project $5.3 trillion in deficits, and $8.1 trillion in new debt, over the next decade?

Despite peace, prosperity and the wealthy paying their “fair share,” under Obama’s budget deficits will remain in the $500 billion range for the next 10 years. And by the president’s own projections, the federal debt will double during his presidency — from $10 trillion when he took office to $20 trillion when he leaves....

"Mr CHANLER said:

"Mr Speaker: The following language of Alexander Hamilton, in one his essays (No 5) in the Federalist, seems most appropriate at this time and to this subject:

"It is of great Importance in a republic not only to guard society against the oppression of its rulers, but to guard one part of the society against the injustice of the other part.
"Justice is the end of government. It is the of civil society. It ever has been and ever will be pursued until it be obtained, or until liberty be lost in the pursuit.
"In a society in which tbe stronger faction can readily unite to oppress the weaker, anarchy may as truly be said to reign as In a state of nature, where the weaker individual is not secured the violence of the stronger." ...

"...Hon.[George] Michael Hahn of Louisiana a speech delivered before the Equal Suffrage Association of Washington on Friday November 17, 1865 says:

"Fellow citizens, while we strive to secure the object we have in view--the right of suffrage to American citizens, regardless of color--we must overcome obstacles and difficulties of a serious character which still beset us and the continued existence of which may threaten to prevent our Immediate success. It in necessary, in beginning our work to see that slavery throughout the land is effectually abolished and that the freedmen are protected in their freedom, and in all the advantages and privileges inseparable from the condition of freedom."

And again:

"The right of the people to keep and bear arms" must be so understood as not to exclude the colored man from the term 'people.'"

[George Michael Hahn,(November 24, 1830- March 15, 1886), was the 19th Governor of Louisiana, Congressman, United States Senator during Reconstruction and after.An adherent of the Union, Hahn became the U. S. Representative from the Louisiana's 2nd congressional district in 1862. Hahn was one of two Louisiana Representatives seated in the 37th Congress which adjourned on 1863 March 4. Eventually, Hahn advised that there should be no more representation from Louisiana until it was reconstructed. During his time in Washington, Hahn met and befriended President Abraham Lincoln.]
