Promises of a big bucks political campaign to force Washington lawmakers to adopt a "universal background check" law, with threats of an initiative if they don't, have fired up Evergreen State gun owners since Monday's press conference by several Seattle religious activists.

they have completely sold out to the gun lobby, abandoning even the most simple safety measures favored by 90%+ of the people.

You lost! We won! Deal with it! The libs are so stupid.....there was never even 50% support for this unconstitutional measure. How do I know? There has never been a single initiative fail in the senate (never, not once) that had a 90% public approval rating. Sorry if you can't believe that......it indicates you are a simpleton! The NRA does not cast a single vote in any election. Never have, never will. However, millions & millions of people do cast ballots and that's what lost your cause for you. Remember 1994. Say goodbye to the house and senate next year! We are never submitting to these slippery-slope proposals anyway. You'll just have to come take the guns from us...!...... A-ha!........CHECKMATE fools. We are strong and you are weak. We have the US Constitution on our side. We have the SCOTUS on our side. We have history on our side. Oh yes, and we have millions of guns on our side while you people can't figure out what a clip/magazine is defined as. I'm waiting......come take the guns cowards and way h what happens. Ha ha ha.

you didn't catch the manic tone, the violent threat and the assertion that people don't actually support background checks by a large majority. Congress sucks - they are owned by the corporate death lobby and right wing extremists.

We're still waiting? When do they come for our guns? Never I'm guessing, but I can hope! Obama has been dealt a stinging defeat and I truly believe he's (for the 1st time) very confused. This has not only shown everyone he is weak and ineffective, but has sent a shiver of doubt through his very core. He never had any power anyway other than what we citizens bestowed on him. His snout must be stinging from the slap it sustained from Senator's Cruz & Paul. Oh, I'm still wondering how an issue with 90% on one side couldn't seal the little background issue in the US Senate.......I suspect it actually had about 35% support.....not nearly enough I can now say with certainty! Watch the coming elections! Watch what happens to your thin majority in the Senate. Damn, the guy had a majority and couldn't even get close to pushing it through. What a paper tiger.

Something interesting I've noticed at work. We have losers at the job who have been incarcerated for various crimes. Some are thieves, some are guilty of various larceny type crimes, some are drug fiends, and one coward even attacked his ex-wife with a baseball batt supposedly. Now for the observation: When the subject of guns comes up, these Individuals suddenly become Mother Theresa! "Guns are evil" they say. "Guns kill" they say. "We need to outlaw guns" they yammer on........but not a damn one of them is allowed to carry or even own a firearm!! Hmmmmm, I wonder why? It's called ENVY and they're practically green with it! They couldn't pass the FBI background check and so they want everyone to be neutered like their criminal asses. I think not. I carry a Springfield XD 9mm with a 16 round magazine and tritium night sights everyday for 7 years. Come and take it from me. Oh yeh.........you can't. Too bad.

No, they didnt sell out to the gun lobby. The stood up for the constitution and bill of rights.
As for that 90%.....you dont really believe that, do you? Thats based on a poll of 1,100 people in the Washington DC area. Hardly a vast cross section of the USA, to say the least. The questions in this bogus poll were also vague enough to produce the desired anti-gun results. Many gun rights people have no big issues with background checks. As they are now. Not modified, altered, or allowed to further impede the second ammendment rights, which have no effect on crime.
You know damn well that you can hardly get 90% of the population to agree that water is wet, or the sky is blue on clear day.
As for selling out, the NRA doles out about 1 million a year. Head babysitter Bloombergs anti-
gun organization spent 12 million on a multi-state ad blitz in two weeks! Did you ever stop to wonder why the self appointed soda monitor wants this so bad?

"...The right of peaceable assembly is one of the rights secured by the Constitution and laws of the United Stares. If citizens come together for a lawful and peaceable purpose, their assembling is within the meaning of the Constitution. The fact that they assemble with arms, provided these arms are to be used not for aggression but for their protection, does not make the assemblage any the less a peaceable one...."

"The right to bear arms is also a right protected by the Constitution and laws of the United States. Every citizen of the United States has the right to bear arms, provided it is done for a lawful purpose and in a lawful manner. A man who carries his arms openly, and for his own protection, or for any other lawful purpose, has as clear a right to do so as to carry his own watch or wear his own hat."

Sneaky Pete, Grumpy 553, and GunShow 1. Thanks for the support! I didn't expect that but it gives me confidence we will never lose our rights. I wasn't trolling, but rather just stating facts. Ninety percent, pppplease! The liberal mind is so easy to deceive! Anyway, thanks for speaking up. Just one "Corporate Death Lobby" member saying thanks (I hope my tone wasn't too manic!!!)

I heard 99% of the people favor safety measures. The biggest one is if you steal or buy a gun off the streets you don't have to have a background check. That's just wrong. We need a law that makes it makes it a crime to illegally obtain a gun.

the gun nuts block all laws to reduce access to known criminals and the mentally ill and turn around and say that laws on the book aren't effective or enforced. Let's get rid of all laws and let the vigilantes, gangs and faux patriots shoot it out among themselves.

It all good Roice. Always happy to stand up for 2A rights. I cant stand the way the anti-gunners seem to think that there are no laws in place, or that new laws will help in any significant way.
Ultimatly, if the laws dont work, thats a failure of
law enforcement and the criminal prosecution
system that lets these criminals off the hook, plea
bargain for lighter sentances, and gets the out on
early release. If background checks are not
working, then thats a failure if the NICS system,
and therefore it is a failure within the FBI, and
state police proscesses...not the fault or problem
of law abiding, legal gun owners.
Also even more disturbing and disgusting to me, is
the impression that every gun owner is some kind of violent animal, use guns to compensate for small penis syndrome, or a home grown terrorist just praying for a new civil war to errupt.
I have never heard a gun rights activist demand that a non-gun person become a gun owner, but the anti crowd demands that pro-gunner be disarmed and or limited all the time.

I don't believe in Martians, but apparently from your posts you are quite gullible and believe many things that there is no evidence for.

I understand the "right" better than you do. You are being used.

hurts - no wonder you are grumpy.

But seriously the background checks are not targeting your legitimate uses. It is common sense to close a loophole in the system.
