That's why the result of the 112th Congress was a fiscal cliff, instead of sanity back into our government.

So all you do is whine, like John 'Drunktank' Boehner.
Obama ran on raising taxes on the rich. He won.
It won't affect a lowlife Texan like you. Besides, you lost.
Because you've been a loser all you're life.
Now explain where you got the stupid idea you're entitled to own any weapon th elocal police force does.
(This should be funny.)
Show me the text in the Constitution that defines a different set of rights, one for civillian police and one for the people.
If it's not there, it doesn't exist.
... well? where's the text from the Constitution?

The administration hasn't had much to say about the shootings beyond the Presidents visit and few short comments. The event is being politicized in the media, by Republican elected and by loudmouthed, rightwing no nods such as yourself.

LaPierre's press conference was bizarre as were his multitude of recommendations that would cost an enormous amount of money and personnel. It was basically the same bullshyte he spouted after the VA Tech massacre.

Tell us all how a national data base of mentally ill people would have prevented any of the recent "massacres."

Fast and Furious was a stupid program devised by a rogue US agency that has strayed very far from it's intended purpose.

You seem to have some type of anger disorder and like to argue for the sake of arguing alone (angry frustrated liberal syndrome?).
His statement does not mention a police force:
"The Constitution does, however, make a distinction between civillian institutions and the effectation of a military."
You also jump to irrational, incorrect conclusions. Take a deep breath and slow down.
See a shrink Waxman, bring a long some of your posts here and see if you can get a multiple personality discount.
While your there have him read this to you and point out the "police force" reference:
DBWriter, post#826726, page 38,367:
"The Constitution makes no distinction between any individual citizen. All individual citizens are allowed the same liberties and rights. The Constitution does, however, make a distinction between civillian institutions and the effectation of a military.
What this means is, anything allowed to a civillian police force is also allowed to any individual citizen, because the police force is comprised of citizens no different in any way than any other person with a different function in society, according to the Constitution, that is.
So, if all you desire for the police to have is very simple and ineffective weaponry, then the government is free to regulate such. The "arms" referred to in the Constitution is not specified. However, any difference between the rights of any civillian police force and other citizens is not specified, either.
And, the government cannot invent things it wishes to be in the Constitution.
Have it any way you want it. If the police have the right, then so does every citizen."

Proof right whiners want to lower deficits by taking away dfrom the poor & retired old people.

In Stunning Rebuke, GOP Won't Deliver Votes for Boehner's 'Plan B'

Boehner called a last-minute Republican Conference meeting at 7:45 p.m. on Thursday, and by 8 p.m., the conference had broken. Some lawmakers were only just arriving when the meeting broke up. Republicans afterward said that the mood in the room was somber and the news was met with disbelief.

Boehner led the Pledge of Allegiance and a prayer, then simply said that there were not enough votes to pass the bill, there would be no further votes before Christmas and that he would give a statement to the press on Friday. A few lawmakers clapped in appreciation. Others were surprised.

“Anytime that they call a meeting like this, there’s something that’s out of the ordinary,” Rep. Scott Rigell, R-Va., said.“So I knew that they were having trouble with the vote count, but I had just assumed that they’d be in here, to say,‘Look, rally, let’s go.’ But that did not happen, of course.”

Boehner exited the Capitol at 8:04 p.m. Swarmed by reporters as he swiftly walked through the doors, he said nothing.

Rep. Steven C. LaTourette, R-Ohio, said Boehner told him that he would call Obama to see about the way forward. But it is clear that his negotiating leverage is tarnished and Republicans may inevitably have to swallow a fiscal cliff deal that heavily skews toward the president’s demands.

“It weakens the entire Republican Party, the Republican majority. It’s the continuing dumbing-down of the Republican Party and we are going to be seen more and more as a bunch of extremists that can’t even get a majority of our own people to support policies that we’re putting forward,” LaTourette said.

Have no cocaine or meth, both are illegal. I always file a correct tax return.
