Well, I guess if they published the truth the Democrats couldn't blame the guns so they're rushing this through. Truth would be in the computer trail, to bad the cops smashed it.

It sounds like James Agenbroad needs a visit from some counselors, an intervention of sorts...

http://news.msn.com/us/thousands-march-for-gu...

James Agenbroad, 78, of Garrett Park, Md., carried a handwritten cardboard sign that read "Repeal the 2nd Amendment." He called it the only way to stop mass killings because he thinks the Supreme Court will strike down any other restrictions on guns.
"You can repeal it," he said. "We repealed prohibition."

OK we need change.

All this GIS stuff can be used to select a number of different demographic areas of the USA.

Let's have 2 or more presidents that would control the different areas within the USA based on their preference, Socialist or Capitalist for of governance.

We have it now by people moving around to avoid undesirable laws. Why should the people have to move around, just allocate the desired leadership to the different areas of the country.

Tina Turner just made a change. She is now a Swiss Miss, actually Mrs. Gave up the U.S. citizenship and defected to Switzerland. What other countries would be a step up from here?

Gun politics in Switzerland are unique in Europe. Switzerland does not have a standing army, instead opting for a people's militia for its national defense. The vast majority of men between the ages of 20 and 30 are conscripted into the militia and undergo military training, including weapons training. The personal weapons of the militia are kept at home as part of the military obligations;

Lol, and how about not spreading false information like saying an assault rifle was used in the Newton CT mass shooting, when in fact there was an AR-15 found in the trunk of the shooter's car. Only handguns were used in the shooting.

If the position was reversed and thousands of people were to protest FOR guns would the media cover it?
There is a double standard regarding gun ownership with the media biased toward the side wanting to ban or outlaw most firearms.

GUN CONTROL for law-abiding citizens.

NO gun control for:
- ILLEGAL MEXICANS
- THE GHETTO CROWD
- MUSLIMS
These three groups are responsible for 90% of ALL gun-related murders in the U.S.A.

democRATS NEVER call for gun control when black or Mexicans gang bangers kill babies during drive-by shootings.

democRATS NEVER call for gun control when muslims go on jihad murder rampages on U.S. soil.
(i.e. the muslim father & son team (The D.C. Snipers) who murdered dozens of American citizens in the eastern states.
Muslim HASAN who murdered dozens of American citizens and wounded dozens of others in Texas).

Why ist this?
Because these groups and their conduct are politically correct.
They make up the voter base for democRATS.

.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Damn straight, there's thousands protesting against firearms and tens of millions protesting for them. The federal government isn't doing their job of enforcing immigration law, we've got 12 million invaders in country right now, the government disarming it's own people will only invite more invasion.
