Obama is in his last term, time to make a difference without the threat of a looming election.....you have your work cut out for you if that is your intention....I hope he kicks all your gun owning arses.

Ahomana falls under the category of:

I would have to believe that this is the reason for Ahomana's anger issues.

Once again you proudly demonstrate your ignorance.
The rating downgrade was largely due in fact to the democrats inability to pass a budget. And to top it off you use a totally biased website to substantiate your position. HAHAHHAHA

A: If the Democrats didn't get the budget passed wouldn't it be the fault of those that blocked it....ie the Republicans....as by failing to pass it caused the downgrade you bloody mental retard....

Again gun owners and advocates are not proclaiming in the streets that everyone needs a gun. However those who favor gun control use every tragic incident as more gasoline to the fire, for their scare tactics.

A: Oh so you don't think gun owners who are supporting the NRA flooding the streets with 280.000 guns per 310.000 people is not forcing your gun loving looneyism on the community?....bright as a button aren't you!

I can only imagine the dismal school you must have went to as you appear to be just above functionally illiterate with no apparent critical thinking skills. Only the mindless rhetoric which has been feed you.

A: Well I actually got through all my school years as there was no one shooting guns around willy nilly and killing my friends...so I had the time to learn and learn well...
Too bad you can't say the same, and you dummies are only going to get dumber if the gun control measures aren't implemented...parents will have to home school and seeing you have proved most of you would fail an idiot IQ test I don't hold out much chance for your kids.

You need to stick with Australian politics because you clearly demonstrate that you are woefully misinformed and or uninformed in regards to our politics.

The democrats controlled both the house and the senate for almost the first two years of Obama’s presidency, and failed to pass a budget during that time, not to mention since. Since your ignorance shows in you attempt at ad hominids, I will break it down for you. If the democrats control both the house and senate the republicans cannot block legislation which the democrats attempt to pass. Much like they did when they rammed Obamacare through. Moron!

The gun owners are not flooding the streets with guns. Your statement only proves my point in regards to the gun control advocates using the scare tactics. You are a fool

Yes you have wowed us with your intellectual prowess … your feeble education well spent…HAHAHAHA

I feel bad for those from Australia in this forum who are intelligent and engaged, as Ahomana, gives a poor representation in regards to the critical thinking skills and over all intellect of the Aussies.

Fortunately many of us have traveled the world and know differently. Ahomana is the equivalent of America's GED educated mouth breathers and I believe that the comparison may be an insult to the mouth breathers.

No, that's the beauty of it Levi.... a buyer walks into a store to purchase a gun and the moment the sale goes through in their name, and you hear the ka-ching of the cash register, the idiot IQ meter is automatically triggered and has recorded "the idiot," and that of any immediate or future offspring.

I can understand the term gun nuts. But it should be used to the pro and anti gun people. Their both obsessives. If talking about guns day in day out on a thread for five years dosent qualify for some sort of mental abnormality I dont know what does.
What does is whining about it.
