He is a sociopath that gets his jollies by playing divisive politics. If you like him there is no problem even if the cracks of getting screwed are appearing. But how does a president just crap on half the population? The half where people are more responsible in their living at a higher percentage. The half and more that are purchasing weapons as they see the architects of hate and fear divide this nation for no reason but their elitist goals.

The President says this gun control business is not about him, but it is. He does not make a move that is not calculated to make himself look good as President. He has some good ideas, but he spend all his time on issues that he knows the Republicans wil not support him on. He could be a great President, but he is his own worst enemy.
It has been about him since a State Senator and even before that at the University. It was all there to see, except the Marxist Press kept it hidden and never challenged him on it.

Dear, despite your propagandized paranoia GUNS, GUNS, GUNS will never be benned. After all you guys hug the second amendment, hug your guns and hug any reasonable discussion that would check who should hug these guns.

When it comes down to "honesty" (your word) it is shocking to many of us as to why you guys do not want more checks and balances as to which gun huggers are allowed guns and where they take those guns.

I am sure if you took one moment of "honesty" (your word) you might question why the world laughs at our gun culture, why we have such shocking massacres and gun deaths and why you folks need and want a gun.

Perhaps it comes down to the gun business and gun paranoia.

I've live, studied (a German University), worked & resided for extended stays in over 30 countries and made it through 2 wars.

I will guess that I am better attuned to what incurs Global "laughter" re: the U.S. than you.

The top four national features attributed to the U.S. at which the world "laughs" are:

- Myopia
- Ignorance / Dismal Education
- Gullibility
- Naiveness

Your hyperbolic stereotyping of "gun huggers" reveals a limited mindset that exemplifies all 4 characteristics generally attributed to "most" Americans.

You should know that the ENTIRE Bill of Rights is important; you can't pick and choose the ones you like without all of them collapsing.

I'm saddened but not shocked that you don't see the insidious evisceration of our Constitution via "The Patriot Act". Totalitarian Regimes don't suddenly happen overnight.

I've lived in Communist countries and studied in Germany with the opportunity to hear, first hand, how Freedoms disappear.

My German Landlady told me how Hitler came into power so quietly and reasonably by promising "Safety & Security" while "Terrorists" were destroying the country. Among the first things he did was to promote "Gun Safety"(your version) for everyone's "security"

I suspect you've never left the country or lived in other cultures; Muslim, Asian, European etc so don't claim to know what the world thinks.

I'm perfectly capable of participating in honest debate with educated, honest & rational people but cannot fathom a mind so thoroughly devoid of basic, cultural literacy.

"Home Schooling" CAN be effective in attaining the basics of an education. but
"Trailer Court Schooling" has done you a great disservice!

WAKE UP! or don't whine when "....they come for you"

Chicago has good gun laws, but it hasn't stopped the murders.

Hasn't made the streets safer.

It is naive to think that MORE gun safety laws are going to stop the killing.

You said "why you folks need and want a gun".

This is why:

White Ohio Couple Beaten To Death With Sledgehammer

Yesterday we brought you the story of a self-proclaimed race-based attack against a white woman by three black people. One of the perps who beat her with a hammer, and then lit her on fire, admitted they killed Melinda McCormick because of a “hatred for white people”.

Unfortunately it is now customary for the mainstream media to ignore the story because the victim was white and the racist attacker was black - this fact does not fit their agenda – Only White People Can Be Racist –….. Reverse the races and this would have been carried on CNN – MSNBC and all the alphabet channels all day.

Also unfortunately, Ms. McCormick was not the only victim to suffer a death by hammer as a result of racism.

In Ohio, a couple, Mr and Mrs Schobert, were brutally murdered by Shawn Eric Ford Jr, who choose to use a sledgehammer.

Mr. Schobert was a lawyer, and Mrs Schobert was active in their community civic groups. They were a loving couple raising an adopted black daughter Chelsea.

Shawn Ford was Chelsea’s boyfriend, and he brutally attacked her fracturing her skull and stabbing her numerous times. She was rushed to the hospital. Her mother and father stopped her boyfriend, the attacker, from visiting her in the hospital. So the boyfriend, Ford, went to their home with another teen, and beat them to death with a sledgehammer.

GOOD MEANING LIBERALS NEED TO WAKE UP.

These families would be alive now if they could defend themselves with protection against sledge hammers and brute strength of assailants. Obama is a terrible influence on black youth encouraging them to mindlessly hate Americans based on their skin color. These victims were white liberals who cared but were attacked because of race based hate fomented by the Obamas.

Jumbles, dear, let us do some easy baby steps that will make our country safer, "the world" stop laughing at our gun culture and try and save some of our fellow amerikkkkkkans from being gunned down by their fellow amerikkkkkans as they hug their guns.

That should keep us busy, dontchabetchathinky?

The good news, dearie, is that good meaning does not include only liberals but others who are concerned about the latest gun massacres and our gun violence.

Good meaning is a good badge to own.

This isn't about gun laws. It is about power, and Obama not wanting it give it up. Every tyrant that took power in the 20th century first picked up the guns.
