Talk about idiots in action......sheeeesh.
Ignorant, illiterate, and as always just plain wrong, au Jimbo. No one but the modern right is trying to destroy the Constitution. Liberals have ALWAYS stood behind it, even when your kind were abusing it, as you continue to do. For example, your side has tried to trash our economy and bond ratings by playing games with the debt ceiling, itself unConstitutional.

Talk about yourself if you're anxious to discuss "idiots," au Jimbo.

I'm sure a ban on assault rilfes will be just as successful our past bans on abortion or illegal drugs.

Poor tea bagger: the Supreme Court of the United States confirmed the right of women to have access to abortion forty years ago and you still can't get over it.

The blacks having the right to vote must really drive you up the wall...

Who thinks that, exactly, Vance? Most of us know the difference between 'full auto' and 'semi-auto,' even people not as 'expert' as you.

I own a .22 plinker, BTW, and I also know it's not a 'semi-auto' weapon. It's bolt-action. Another example of your 'expertise?'

What's a 'clip round magazine,' incidentally? Never heard of one of those. Could you share that 'expertise' some more? ;)

Incidentally:

Clip - detachable device which holds bullets

Magazine - external or internal device designed to feed bullets into firing chamber

Some magazines are now detachable, but are still called 'magazines' if they have a mechanism to feed bullets into the firing chamber.'Clips' are just bullet-holders.

Funny how when a gun gnutters scream and holler when anyone else calls a magazine a clip right up to the second they call a clip a magazine but that's different!

HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Just like the check Vince gets every month doesn't count as assistance when he cashes it but it's welfare for everyone else he disagrees with.

HAHAHAAHAHAH!

MOOOOOOOOOOCH.

Of course, Vince keeps insisting how everyone here thinks but he can't actually find anyone that says it.

Funny how that is.

Putting aside Vince doesn't think well for his own self.

32,000 deaths.
Most people think 32,000 is more than a few.
I see they are predicting that firearm deaths will surpass vehicular deaths next year.
Yet nothing is done about firearms because (~stomp stomp stomp~) we gun owners have special rights when it comes to our toys.
PS: Everyone dies, honey. It is the preventable deaths that should be of concern.
Compared to millions???

32k is a few..........ROTFLMAO
