Really? Then please explain how your "smart and effective gun control" worked for the 500+ people murdered by firearms in Chcago last year. the city with the most strict gun control laws in the country.
is nothing "smart and effective" about a local law, if a short train ride allows you to escape it. The easy access in general to guns makes local laws null and void - are you happy about that?

Gangs are a whole 'nother matter from survivalist mom and her disturbed kid. The culture of violence and the presense of guns and violence as a the accepted solution to disputes and proving your worth leads to these high rates in certain places.

He wasn't the right wing candidate. He was the Republican nominee. Get it?

Sorry Forrest but we know you are not the brightest bulb in the chandelier! For one thing, there is no such thing in America as "smart and effective" gun control it's a hotchpotch of useless laws!

Oh how soon we forget pushing granny over the cliff in a wheelchair. Or telling people that McCain was Bush in disguise. Or how electing Romney would put in motion the strategies that led us to the financial collapse.

Of course expanding the welfare state as much as DumBama has certainly played a part, but liberal politics is nothing but scare tactics.

I couldn't help myself, but this is what it says on every Bic lighter you buy:

WARNING: keep away from children
Ignite lighter away from face and clothing. Caution, flammable gas under pressure. Never expose to heat above 122 degrees and prolonged sunlight. Never puncture or put in fire. Make sure flame is out after each use. Never keep lit for more than 30 seconds.

What other country has more laws to protect the stupid from themselves than the USA?

Or perhaps criminals are assured their prey don't have the ability to protect themselves from a criminal with a gun.

Make every single gun illegal, and criminals will still have them. This is something you people don't understand.

I have a question. As the second part of the title of this thread ("fears rising")indicates, right wingers tend to have many fears. They see terrorists everywhere, they are afraid their guns are going to be taken away, they are afraid America will be taken over by illegal immigrants,etc.
So my question is: Why are right wingers such pussies?
Your Government Overlords will protect you, my son. Now close your eyes.

Yes, make a law that all criminals must turn in their guns. That will solve the problem.

Yes, I guess you're right, xxxrayted. The Obama campaign had no business saying anything negative about McCain and Romney. After all, McCain's and Romney's campaign had only good things to say about Obama, right?

Right wing candidate? Another libhole that believes everyone is polarized. He was the Republican Candidate. You confuse party affiliation with left and right wing. Not all Democrats are left wing, not all Republicans are right wing.

Well, there are 3 right wingers who work in my office, and they all were voting for Mitt, and were encouraging everyone else to do so. 2 of the guys who live on my street are very right wing, and they both had Romeny/Ryan stickers on their cars. I had talked with all 5 of these people, and they all watch Fox News, and listen to Glenn Beck, and they all talk endlessly about Obama's phony birth certificate, and how he's a communist, and how he's destroying America, etc.

I also notice the right wing media,i.e. Rush, Fox News, etc. were all encouraing people to vote for Mitt as well. So, yeah, I would have to say Mitt was the right wing choice. Did you not vote at all? Or did you write in someone else's name, or what?

Most elections are not about who you want in--they are about who you want to keep out.

Not many were all that thrilled with Romney. He and DumBama both lost some voters since the last election. However, the idea that we could get that Socialist thrown out of office is what encouraged people on the right that did vote for Romney. Anybody but DumBama, and that includes Mickey Mouse.

Debt still growing, higher taxes for most all of us, deficit not shrinking, and the job situation still at the bottom of the ravine. He is absolutely good for nothing. And now we have much higher energy bills to look forward to as well with his shutting down coal fired power plants and imposing multi-million dollar improvements on the ones that remained open.

America can't afford DumBama. There isn't enoigh money in the country.

I didn't vote for Romeny, I voted against DumBama.

Saying negative things is one issue. Using scare tactics combined with lies is quite another.
