Outlawing Guns won't fix societal problems but outlawing Liberalism would fix one helluva lot of them, including mass killings.

Guns are necessary for the protection of good people.

Shall I post the excerpt from President Clinton's speech in 1998 about Saddam's WMDs and his intentions if we just ignore him?
"Now, let's imagine the future. What if he fails to comply, and we fail to act, or we take some ambiguous third route which gives him yet more opportunities to develop this program of weapons of mass destruction and continue to press for the release of the sanctions and continue to ignore the solemn commitments that he made?
"Well, he will conclude that the international community has lost its will. He will then conclude that he can go right on and do more to rebuild an arsenal of devastating destruction.
"And some day, some way, I guarantee you, he'll use the arsenal."
President Clinton - 1998
Bill Clinton mentioned in that same speech that the inspectors had discovered nearly 40,000 chemical weapons, more than 100,000 gallons of chemical weapons agents, 48 operational missiles, 30 warheads specifically fitted for chemical and biological weapons, and a massive biological weapons facility at Al Hakam equipped to produce anthrax and other deadly agents.
And that's just what they were allowed to find since Saddam imposed debilitating conditions to obstruct other sites as Clinton stated "based on the whole history of this operation since 1991, to protect whatever remains of his capacity to produce weapons of mass destruction, the missiles to deliver them, and the feed stocks necessary to produce them."
If you want.

I've already posted bushie boy claiming it was there, then making a joke for journalists about it.

He didn't mention the money or the dead bodies though.

Oh, and I'm still waiting for that quote from what Clinton signed regarding the US' roles with Sadddam is.

Liberals also think a Moral Compass is a device used to circumscribe their immorality, failures and perversions with a Privacy Fence to keep it all from public view.

Liberal Media outlets like MSNBC, CBS, CNN, ABC, MediaMatters, etc. are in this sense, Moral Compasses.

How's that war in Afghanistan going? Fast-n-Furious? Eric Racist Holder's contempt of Congress citation?

Of course, this is all too familiar: a young aggrieved male, mentally disturbed, threatening others—especially women—but still able to get his hands on a high-capacity magazine of the variety used in so many other mass murders. This doesn't happen in any other high income country with the regularity it does here; in fact, it almost never happens in any of them.

But here, in the good ole US of A, we’ve allowed a group of rich, entitled thugs who run an operation fronting for arms dealers—guys who represent a minority position on pretty much every issue having to do with reasonable regulation of firearms even among gun owners—to dictate our policies to cowardly, careerist politicians.

I already hear the outrage from the right: how can you blame the NRA? We need good guys to have guns, we have to stop the “haters” and “knockout gamers” and … I can't even bear to repeat the infantile and inane talking points coming from cynical and callous people like the NRA's Executive Vice President and foaming mouthpiece Wayne LaPierre.

We know how to stop these incidents, or at least greatly reduce them. We've seen other countries do it, such as Australia, which was averaging one of these massacres a year until their infamous Port Arthur Massacre in 1996. After which they completely overhauled their gun laws. Since then, a country with the same frontier history as the United States has not experienced one mass shooting. Not one. Their homicides and suicides have also precipitously dropped.

We, of course, could learn even more about how to stop these mass killings, as well as the everyday homicides, suicides and accidental killings that rob this nation of our youth, and everything they could have ever been. But this past week we've had numerous examples of how the NRA does their best to block this from happening, because they will gladly accept mass murder in Santa Barbara and Newtown, as well as an accidental bystander shooting in a neighborhood near you, if it keeps the dollars floating into their pockets from the ultimate blood-drenched 1%ers who own various staples of the gun industry

After attending the NRA's Convention in Indianapolis, I wrote recently in these pages about all the NRA does to encourage paranoia and hatred while selling the weaponry not of self protection or hunting, but war, to anyone with a stack of bills and a glint in their eye.

But this past week we've seen the other side of the coin. How the NRA works to suppress information that would lead to treating a public health catastrophe that claims over 30,000 lives per year and injures over 100,000 as that very thing, while fighting to ensure we have as little access to information as possible that might help save lives.

The simple fact is, much like with their friends on the right from the tobacco industry to the oil industry to the megachurch, science and information are the enemies of the NRA. They have proven they will do whatever it takes to make sure we have less of it, and more Santa Barbaras.

It didn't matter that Saddam got rid of all of them by that time. He would have waited long enough to start rebuilding them again.

What don't you understand about that? It's a very simple concept and fact.

Senator Hillary Clinton gave a speech on the Senate floor in favor of supporting Bush using military force in Iraq as a last resort.

Considering she, herself, admitted Saddam rebuilt his WMD program and nuclear weapons program even after the initial inspectors destroyed what they were allowed access to and because the UN's impotency gave Saddam 15 separate chances to lie and deceive them over 11 long years, she was right to vote in favor of using force as a last resort.

But she couldn't have it both ways. More inspectors and trusting the UN wouldn't have prevented him from starting all over again.

However, I've always wondered what the UN's threat of "severe consequences" would have proven to be.

It's very simple. Don't lie about getting caught in wrongdoing. Don't lie about a major upheaval in the nation's healthcare. Don't target people who don't agree with your ideology using the strong arm of the IRS. Don't lie about the deaths of Americans for political gain.

Respect all life, tolerate all personal beliefs and don't steal to give to others even if you think your intentions are noble.

And keep your pants zipped if your the President of the United States.

What 'time' are you referring to?

Hans Blix said there were none. bushie boy didn't believe him so he sent in Alan Kay.

Alan Kay said there were, then back tracked after the invasion.

You're really having a problem reconciling your opinions with facts don't you?

It's really simple and straight forward.

You mean besides the ones the inspectors had access to which Clinton said they destroyed - nearly 40,000 chemical weapons, more than 100,000 gallons of chemical weapons agents, 48 operational missiles, 30 warheads specifically fitted for chemical and biological weapons, and a massive biological weapons facility at Al Hakam equipped to produce anthrax and other deadly agents?

Or the ones he kept hidden and then got rid of at the very last minute to prevent Bush from kicking his ass from here to kingdom come?

Iraq is a fairly large enough country to hide almost anything. But one of Saddam's generals who defected and one of his scientists who did the same both adamantly claimed Saddam moved them to Syria.

Hmmm. Just what do you believe is moral about the Republicans policy of...

Refusing to address immigration reform?
Destroying private property rights?
Executing innocent people?
Killing people through lack of gun controls?
Denying human-caused climate change?
Trying to force everyone to accept Christianity as THE religion?
Trying to deny women their legal reproductive rights?
Allowing rape in the military?
Polluting our air and water?
Preventing the poor and minorities from voting?
Denying equal pay for equal work?
Attempting to take people off Social Security and Medicare?
Refusing unemployment benefits?
Eliminating regulations that protect us?
Lying and cheating to win elections?
Destroying union protections?
Refusing to fund education?
Refusing to provide free breakfast and lunch for poor children?
Lying about the deaths of Americans in Benghazi for political gain?
Yeah

So... now you're saying the reason for the invasion was destroyed by Saddam?

Wasn't that the entire point? Couldn't bushie boy have stopped the invasion since Saddam took away his reason?

Or are you claiming there was something hidden, but no one has found it yet? And we just need to take your word on this?

Seems to me reality has trumped you again.
