Specious reasoning.
With the emphasis on Specious.
PS- the assault weapon the gun gnutter in Connecticut used was legal and NRA approved. If the NRA had it's way, it would approve of the sale to him again. After all, they gave him a certificate.
The purchase of the weapon was subjected to a background check.

The weapon was not sold to HIM, it belonged to his mother.

Neither Adam Lanza or his mother were NRA members. Even if they were, how would that make the NRA responsible for the actions of an individual? The certificate was either for a safety or shooting course. The NRA has no direct involvement in that either. Regardless, it’s just evidence a course was completed. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/...

You're grasping at straws.

Let's review what we know:
90 percent of Americans want universal background checks.
Background checks block gun sales to felons
9 percent of Americans are felons.
You oppose background checks and insist you have a right to sell to felons.
You’re assuming none of the 9 percent are part of the 90 percent you claim. Critical thinking eludes you.

Number one, I was addressing a specific subject in the post I replied to.

Number two, the subject has been mass shootings and mass shooters.

Are you actually admitting people can commit mass killings without guns? You are making progress. Now tell us if gun control will stop mass killings, in light of what you have learned.

The Constitution does not give you rights. The founders considered your rights to be "God-given" or "natural rights" — you are born with all your rights. The constitution does, however, protect your rights by:

Limiting the powers of government by granting to it only those specific powers that are listed in the Constitution; (This has not proven to be effective of late.)
Enumerating certain, specific rights which you retain. These are listed in the Bill of Rights.

The sun rises in the east.

I have already sourced MANY times the 90 percent figure (putting aside the 90 percent figure is available from many sources immediately).

I don't have to pull your head out of your azz and make you agree.

Your “facts” are anything but overwhelming. You never reveal sources, you simply spout crap.
What a shame it is that since I have already refuted this, you aren't simple banned for being the m/f c/s lying sack of excrement you are.

Type "90 percent" into google.

You don't even have to type in "background checks".

Take your pick.

Nope.

Let's type in "90 percent" and see what google finds...

"Despite concerns about how information on gun owners might be used, 91 percent of registered voters support universal background checks, according to a new poll released on Thursday.

Only 8 percent of voters surveyed by Quinnipiac University's Polling Institute March 26 to April 1 stated opposition to universal background checks—something the White House, many Democrats in Congress and and gun-violence opponents are pushing in the wake of the December shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. In households with guns, 88 percent of respondents expressed support for checks."

You don't know if they were members one way or the other.

What we do know is: the NRA certificates, being in their house, means the NRA was in some way: involved.

AND I think it's HILARIOUS that anyone would use Glen Beck as a resource.

Why is it, every time you get called on putting words in people's mouths, you rebut by accusing everyone of being one poster? You should know by now that form of deflection doesn't work.

Here is the post you claim contains the assertion that the constitution gives people rights, when in fact, eternal cynic simply stated it protects individuals' rights.

The US Constitution is about defining government powers and limiting that government while protecting the rights of the individual. The rights of the individual were of paramount concern to the framers.

Now, go cry to the mods that its not fair for me to prove you wrong and embarrass you in front of everyone.

That is what you call sourcing?
Google provides a list of articles with the key words you type in. Which one, specifically, did you use? Are you afraid of listing your source for fear it will be debunked?
