Those nasty guns don't kill efficiently? Perhaps you should ask the 26 folks who were killed within 5 minutes.
We should all be afraid of guns especially being afraid of the gun gnutters who believe they need them, want them and hoard them in their homes as "law abiding" citizens (just like Mother Lanza).
Fear of the symptom does nothing for the disease.

Don’t you agree there ought to be a background check before the gun lobby is allowed to buy a congressman?

Shouldn't the issue be any elected official allowing themselves to be manipulated for campaign donations?
We might as well be vetting the frickin lobbyists.

Lobbying is acceptable only if it's conducted publicly under full disclosure ...

People kill for a lot less money than politicians accept in donations from lobbyists.
Is it really a stretch to think more goes on behind closed doors than the hallowed halls?

Awww! The gun control bill failed today 54 to 46. Awww. So sad. That means keep your slimey, liberal hands off my gun. We will not be disarmed, and we won't stand by and let you attack the 2nd amendment either.
Thanks for supporting more dead schoolkids. I'm sure many Righties will join you, since guns mean more than kids to them.

Incidentally, the bill had nothing to do with "confiscation" of anything, slimy Rightie liar. It was about background checks, try READING once in awhile.

The blood of the dead is not on the hands of the law abiding gun owner, it is on the hands of the liberal who believes the crazy people need their freedom. All they have to do is take their medication, and they are not crazy any more. But they don't take their medication, then they steal their Mother's guns, and go murder children. Put the crazy people in an institution, all of them, Then their medication is monitored.
Literally absurd and insane, blaming people who want guns OFF the street for putting them in the hands of madmen! Your crazy person and his mom were good buddies of the NRA, incidentally, and got all his guns legally.

Medication? You need some, your psychosis seems to be spinning out of control.

A politician that respects the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, and follows the law cannot be bought. That pretty much excludes Democrats.

Have you tried getting on a plane lately?
How about pulled over by a road block 'safety check'?
Not gotten a job (for which you are skilled) because your skin color didn't fit affirmative action?
Not allowed to have alcohol at a campsite?
Can't raise chickens in your own backyard?
Kicked out of a public park at sundown (even if wanting to watch a meteor shower)?
Have you tried to PROTEST the President only to be told you can ONLY do it at a designated area many blocks offsite?
Tried to drive as fast as you want on the open road?
Government bureaucrats feel the need to protect us from ourselves AND protect the President from us .....
Slowly over time, little by little we are 'less free' because someone else messed things up OR someone doesn't feel safe.
THANK YOU!!!!

...And don't even get me started on that:

"If it only saves ONE life....." or ....for the CHILDREN...." idiocy

What is especially revealing about the dishonesty of the "Ban It" Gang are the Weasel Worlds:

For Example:

1. Gun "safety" ACTUALLY means, Gun CONFISCATION

2. "We need....." ACTUALLY means: "I WANT...

3. "Common sense"...... ACTUALLY means "EXTREME"

4 "We need to.... " (again) ACTUALLY means " I WANT YOU TO ..."

If something stinks when articulated, honestly, just use disingenuous rhetoric to mask the REAL intent.

P.S. "What we really need" are good "common sense" pressure cooker "safety" laws......if it only "saves ONE Life" of "a CHILD"!

ATTN RATIONAL READERS:

This clown is the same "Hasbarat" that uses countless usernames and gets paid, full time to work the Pro Zionist Israel Forum

RE; "Hasbarat" a hasbara troll hired by Israel's Propaganda Ministry to defend Israel's Zionist Right Wing Extremists and their Genocidal Terrorism.

Most American Jews and all ethical Israelis despise the Right Wing, Zionist Extremists that give Jews a bad name like "tha Professor" aka "Ass-fer-hyre" aka 30 other "usernames"

A bit about Hasbara and the Hasbarats they hire:

“Israel Hires Internet Soldiers to Penetrate American Forums, Chatrooms”
http://deadlinelive.info/2011/07/22/israel-hi ...

“Israel hires Internet soldiers,” Israeli students and demobilized soldiers get paid to pretend they are just regular folks and leave pro-Israel comments online.

Israeli Foreign Ministry Deputy Elan Shturman is quoted from the Israeli Occupation Magazine saying,Quote:

“Our people will not say:‘Hello, I am from the hasbara department of the Israeli foreign ministry and I want to tell you the following.’

Nor will they necessarily identify themselves as Israelis,” he said.

“They will speak as net-surfers and as citizens, and will write responses that will look personal but will be based on a prepared list of messages that the foreign ministry developed.” CONTINUED

These are JUST TWO other, U.S. Funded Deception Scams Run by Israel's Multi-Billion Dollar, International Propaganda Industry that remains unmatched by ANY other Criminal, Terrorist state.

“What is Megaphone?”
http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread577 ...
EXCERPT “In short, it allows an army of people to quickly locate anti-Israel sentiment on the web and drown it out with a flood of pro-Israel propaganda. It also to a certain extent allows users to automate some actions, such as down-voting & up-voting comments”. CONTINUED

" WIKIPEDIA EDITING COURSES LAUNCHED BY ZIONIST GROUPS"
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/aug/18/w ...
"Now two Israeli groups seeking to gain the upper hand in the online debate have launched a course in "Zionist editing" for Wikipedia, the online reference site."CONTINUED

There's nothing like an old fashioned ad hominem attack to reveal a dearth of rational thinking!

Hey Ass-fer-Hyre, What are you doing over here when you're paid, full time to shill for Zionist Atrocities.
Do you also get paid to disarm LOYAL Americans for you big Zionist Take-Over?
