Maybe you simply didn't exploit enough little children during your campaign appearances.
Hold on here a second, are you trying to say there are actually members of Congress that LIE???? I find that difficult to believe....

His posts usually eat up the same amount of space as that other idiot, Big Time, and are every bit as poignant and informative.

And what praytell would a background check for yourself do to your 2nd Ammendment rights as a "law abidin', gun slingin' citizen?"
I still like my idea better. Tax the living sh*t out of 'em.
Oddly enough, the Democrats also used that strategy to keep blacks from voting, it was called a "Poll Tax". It was declared unconstitutional......

The 2nd Ammendment was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights, during the Washington administration - an Independent.

In United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542 (1875), the Supreme Court ruled that "[t]he right to bear arms is not granted by the Constitution; neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The Second Amendments means no more than that it shall not be infringed by Congress, and has no other effect than to restrict the powers of the National Government." This was during the Grant administration - a staunch Republican.

In United States v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939), the Supreme Court ruled that the amendment "[protects arms that had a] reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia". This ruling has been widely described as ambiguous, and ignited a debate on whether the amendment protected an individual right, or a collective militia right. This was during the Roosevelt administration - a staunch Democrat.

Seems to me, if it weren't for the Independents and Democrats, you wouldn't have any 2nd Ammendment rights.

According to polls, 90% of the citizens were in favor of tougher background checks. People have a vested interest in keeping guns out of the hands of criminals.
Why invoke Sandy Hook? Sandy hook didn't involve a criminal who got a gun when he shouldn't have. If you are gonna invoke Sandy Hook, as Obama has done its almost an insult to those who died to enact legislation that has absolutely nothing to do with and would do nothing to stop a tragedy. Maybe one of the kids who died was an illegal or an anchor baby, and he can invoke Sandy Hook for his illegal immigrant amnesty crusade.

However, the NRA (Marketing Dept. for Gun Manufacturers) was 100% in favor of paying senators to keep from passing such restrictions on criminals.

This was business. If you are a senator- paid good money by the NRA to vote their way- you are obligated to do so! To quote "The Godfather": "After all, we're not communists."

These senators HAVE to vote according to who pays them and will keep them in office.
That law would have done almost nothing except add to bureaucracy.

Wait!! You haven't heard of me!! You so owe me an apology for that!

You don't have to change it. You could instead attribute ownership rights to me in your headline.

I honestly couldn't care less if you use it. So don't change it on my account. Was just messin.

Actually declared unconstitutional by a...Democrat? OMG!!!

The first formal voter literacy tests were introduced in 1890, during the Harrison administration - a Republican.

The Voting Rights Act of 1965 suspended the use of literacy tests in all states or political subdivisions during the Johnson administration - a Democrat.

Maybe we need background checks for pressure cookers and a national registry, Ferr.

F' what kind of nut job absolutely needs to cook with one of those things, anyway? Are ribs that fall off the bone worth people's lives? Is a roast that is so tender and supple that you can cut it with a fork worth carnage at the Boston Marathon? Have these Pressure cooker nut jobs not heard of a crock pot. HELLO!!

Another pressure cooker joke?

Either that or the comedy club just had a massive layoff.

The act was in 1965, Johnson served till 1969 - couldn't have been that much heat. At least not as much as from Vietnam. The man was a brave soul. He had more on his plate that any other president before him. Yeah, I wouldn't run either after going through all that sh*t. Better to hand over the reigns to an expert - someone like Richard M. Nixon (a Republican and the only president to resign).
