Your sick fascist fantasies to the contrary, this isn't Nazi Germany and Hitler isn't running it. I'm sure if it was, you'd be among the first to enlist. Especially if they'd let you keep stroking your beloved assault 'rifle,' huh?

Everyone knows that Tea Party revolutionaries fear and hate socialism about as much as the Antichrist. Which is funny, because the Tea Party movement’s dirty little secret is that it owes its existence to the grandaddy of all Antichrists: the godless empire of the USSR.
What few realize is that the secretive oil billionaires of the Koch family, the main supporters of the right-wing groups that orchestrated the Tea Party movement, would not have the means to bankroll their favorite causes had it not been for the pile of money the family made working for the Bolsheviks in the late 1920s and early 1930s, building refineries, training Communist engineers and laying down the foundation of Soviet oil infrastructure.
Here is a better historical fact, one that the Kochs don’t like to repeat in public: the family’s initial wealth was not created by the harsh, creative forces of unfettered capitalism, but by the grace of the centrally-planned economy of the Soviet Union. This deserves repeating: The Koch family, America’s biggest pushers of the free-market Tea Party revolution, would not be the billionaires they are today were it not for the whim of one of Stalin’s comrades.
Poor "communist puppet" teabagger.

You know I was really shocked with all the anti gun talk on the Sunday shows why the MSM didn't bring out the 34 people killed in Chicago over the weekend. Their stringent gun laws really seem to be working.

Sadly, it's not unusual at all for you and other dirty righties to use tragedies to attack 'liberals' and the Obama administration, is it?

I'm sure you cheer for fires, gun massacres, and terrorist attacks so you can exploit them for your own puposes.

No, I do not.
That's one of the standard excuses governments always give to register all guns to enable them to enact more severe laws & regulations to reduce or eliminate private gun ownership of they so desire.
Criminals rarely use registered firearms, so what's the point, other than to know which otherwise law-abiding citizens have arms? And, then one must ask, why does the government want so badly to know what law abiding citizens legally possess, unless it is to be able to know where to go to confiscate arms no longer "deemed" acceptable for citizens?
Government already has a legal monopoly on fully-automatic weapons, military/armed aircraft/helicopters, armored/armed military vehicles, and heavy, wide-area weapons like rockets and artillery of all sizes, drones, satellites, all combined with trained police/SWAT and combat troops to use all that.
Given all that, semi-automatic rifles/shotguns and handguns are actually leaving the citizens under-armed by orders of magnitude. They're trying to pass laws that would make an old WW2-era M1 Garand rifle design (8 shots) heavily-restricted if not completely illegal to own. How many freaking Garands have ever been used in a crime in the last 50 years?
Instead of trying to fix social problems with yet another stab at the failed policy of prohibition that is doomed from the start and likely to cause FAR more crime & violence than it could ever hope to stop, how about doing the hard thing and try to fix a sick society?
That's all this is...government & politicians covering for their own ideological and policy failures and "social-engineering" us all into a sick society, by blaming inanimate objects to distract low-information citizens into believing it's not government or the politicians' doing, as if inanimate objects themselves were the cause of crime, murder, and violence.
So if soldier boy returns from Afghanistan and has post traumatic disorder in addition to his collection of armoury at home how do you manage that?
