As a Canadian apparently we have more guns per person than you yanks do, why do you guys resist the call for limiting assault rifles and military weapons. Hunting rifles and pistols are not the issue, why does a guy in New York need a 75 round drum rpk or any other military weapons... Sinceyour founding fathers wrote the constitution weapons are no longer black powder operated and have advanced immensely any normal fella could wrap his head around this and be ok with a military assault rifle ban. Ps. There is no Taliban or al Qaeda nut bars hiding behind trees on your yard either.

Al Qaida ARE the rebels who are fighting against the Syrian Regime.

Obama wants to arm Al Qaida??

It turned out badly when the CIA backed Al Qaida in Afghanistan to fight AGAINST the Russians.

Now he wants to back them to fight against Syria INSIDE of Syria??

ANY action on our part will ONLY ESCALATE the carnage!!!(and perhaps bleed over the entire area)

I wonder if the same politicians and celebrities who opposed US involvement in Iraq's civil war will also oppose our involvement in Syria.

There are lot's of muslim terroists here, and in your country, snowbird.

Our founding fathers had the most advanced rifles in the world at the time...we invented rifled barrles and could shoot further than your homeboys...the British.

Rifled barrels were invented in Augsburg (now Germany) prior to 1500, Bubba. Folks in Texas could learn a lot about intelligent immigration policies from our neighbors to the north.

I'm the number one buffoon in government. If someone sneezes in my neighbor's house, the next morning I'm at the podium arguing for an airstrike.

Who stepped over the line? The government? The rebels? Did domeone really step over it? Do tell.

Stop being so dopey. The only band you conduct plays cacophony. Dopes should be hidden and not heard from. LOL

Lets see here, Obama wants to take away our guns and limit our self defense all the while shipping weapons to Mexico via Fast and Furious to drug cartels and illegal aliens and now radical muslims.

Democrat voters really are stupid.

The officials must be getting some kind of reward to promote the sales of weapons and thus spread even more chaos on Syria.
Aaah the war mongers, always present.

Why do you need to post your opinion online, someone might be incited to do something? Why do you need to read books, it can lead to independent thinking? Why do you need a soda more than 6oz. it will make you fat and cost healthcare more? Why do you need a car with a powerful engine, you can get to work in a 2 cylinder or electric? Why do you need to go fishing, there are fish in the store? Why do I need a firearm? Go blow. I have a 2nd Amendment Right, and I want one, so I can have one. I am not a criminal, do not treat me as such. It is called freedom and it is great to be free.

and so are you seeing how you are trying to relate Obama's chemical weapons "red line" to arming the rebels. But i guess if you have actually followed the news and not just topix you would know that it looks like it was the rebels whom released the sarin gas. But i know, you dont need the facts to bash on Obama here....
