The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

And who said anything abut giving up automatuc weapons??? They are already regulated to high heaven. When was the last time a legally-owned full-auto weapon was ever used in a crime???? Full-auto weapons are NOT the problem.
You can call them whatever you like, when a rifle is capable of killing or injuring 80 people in less than 60 seconds in a movie theater, call it ‘full’ call it ‘semi’— it's semantics and a mere technicality!!!

Huh? Your "every man for himself" attitude is un-american and entirely foreign to decent, civilized folks!
Actually, it's totally American. If our founders wanted these ridiculous social programs, they would have been written into the Constitution. They weren't, and do you know why? Because it was every man for himself. Government was for government issues only--not social issues.

I am not a Republican nor am I a Democrat; I am a social liberal and fiscal conservative. I hold just about all politicians in equally low regard, the only exceptions being those I hold in utter contempt. I also think the establishment two-party system in Washington is a recipe for disaster! Something has gone terribly wrong when the biggest threat to the American economy is congress ... let’s face it, the guys who rejected the English Monarchy and opted for a liberal constitution instead were outrageous progressive at the time!
Bull. Congress is not responsible for the lack of jobs--DumBama is.

It's funny how nothing negative is DumBama's fault. If it's not Bush, it's the Republican Congress. If it's not the Republican Congress, it's Japanese earthquakes. If it's not Japanese earthquakes, it's ATM machines. If it's not ATM machines, it's tsunamis.

In four years from now, you will continue to make excuses for this incompetent. How do I know? Because that's what I told you leftists before DumBama's first year was up in the White House.

Funny the President has plenty of guns protecting his family. I dont think the weapons protecting his family will have restricted magazines. Im not some doomsday nutt either but I believe they have the right to defend themselves. I think HI CAP mags are great and fun. Its not our fault some mad man feels the need to shoot kids. It is the governments fault for not protecting them with the same firepower they protect themselves with.

The two things liberals both hate and fear the most. They hate religion for the flaws it shows in their choices of morality. Guns because it prevents them from exercising their control over people who want nothing to do with their corrupt ideology.

The founding Fathers were at the time the Richest in America and they were slave owners who at first wanted no one to have a vote about anything and then later wanted only a landowner to be able to vote. Of course they didn't want anything other than for themselves.

your opinion I realize, but total BS, Obama barely deserved to be elected to the Ill. senate, he's never done anything of note, to claim him superior to a proven politician and businessman like Romney shows you to be one of the LIV's.
Obama doesn't care one bit about creating jobs, he's never done anything to create jobs outside of the failed green energy industry that has cost us around $90 billion dollars.
He got his tax raise on the "rich", now he has nothing.
He's never done anything of note? Well, you might want to "note" that he has won 2 Presidential elections. How many did Romney win again?

That number of people can be killed in less than one second without the use of a firearm (ie. OK City). Your point is moot. And a rifle, in and of itself, is NOT capable of killing anyone. It is a hard heart and a careful aim that kills indiscriminately.

Traygone was a violent, racist criminal who violently and illegally attacked Zimmerman, the POS got what he deserved, more of these criminals need the same.
Will you be testifying at Zimmerman's trial, since you were there and saw what happened? I think you should. Zimmerman needs you to tell the jury what you saw.

Like you, I am also outraged at this terrible miscarriage of justice. I mean, i shudder everytime I think of that lousy Trayvon Martin, who was armed to the teeth with a bag of Skittles, attacking poor George Zimmerman, who had nothing but a pistol to defend himself with.

The LSM is in the tank for Obama, that is a fact, they have been for years, pretty hard for Romney or any republican to overcome that.
In 2008 they refused to properly vet Obama, essentially giving him a pass. If they would have done their jobs Obama would never have even beat Hillary.
You have ran the best Repub minds for the past two elections. You Betcha!

I agree. The Obama administration is the best thing that ever happened to the right wing nut industry. Glenn Beck would never have had a TV show, or sold as many of his "books" to so many suckers, if there had been no Obama administration.

Funny all of the scumpit cities have all the gun violence problems. You guys know what Im talking about all the gun free cities Boston, New York City, Chicago, and the District of Columbia. All of these rappers who support Obama mainly JAYZ rap about selling drugs and not working for a living. One of his songs talks about ambushing other drug dealers Friend or Foe another one talks about chasing crackers up the street. This is the guy that hung out with the president and campaigned for him come on people wake up.

The people who wrote the Constitution lived in a small rural country, huddled along the Eastern Seaboard with a population of 3.5 Million — a large part of which was financed by slave labor ... many of them believed that it was okay to own other human beings. Almost all of them believed that women should have no role in public affairs. Almost all of them believed people without property have no role in public affairs and no right to cast a vote. Why on earth would anybody think that their decisions ought to bind us now being that huge country with a population of 315 Million? So whenever we discuss something like gun control or national healthcare, before you know it, we're off and running on a completely irrelevant conversation about what people thought 250 years ago, instead of addressing the real problem.
