Toure called on the White House to ban so-called "assault weapons"

Jan 15, 2013 Full story: 95 KSJ 26

He later said only President Barack Obama can "save us from the gun epidemic." "We want to envision ourselves as a nation of vigilantes protecting ourselves with our guns, but that's not what's happening, Tour said.

"Only Obama can save us"...
Wow - What a certified MORON.
An epidemic? Here's some news, more kids are killed in car accidents in a DAY than were killed by this epidemic in a year.
Tragic yes, epidemic - no.
In fact, deaths by guns contrinue in a downward trend, but why should facts get in the way of a good argument.
I think that the stinking pile in the White House should set an example by immediately disarming the Secret Service, so that there will be fewer guns and therefore less violence.
That makes about as much sense, and will have as much positive effect, as passing yet another law that targets the law abiding while doing nothing to deter criminal activity.
Face it folks, the problems with violence are the people willing to commit it. Kids will be just as dead from a loonie with a home made hand grenade as with a shooting weapon. A good katana sword could take out a lot of kids without making so much as a "pop" to alert others.
In all cases, the problem isn't the weapon, it is the misuse of the object that will not be addressed one iota by passing more restrictions.
Very restrictive gun laws will have the important effect of insuring that citizens are less defended from the criminal element, but since useless laws are all politicians can come up with to make themselves look good, it is worth any damage inflicted on the public, most of which are too stupid to realize the truth in what was said so long ago:
Benjamin Franklin:“People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both”.
Get ready for the revolution folks - It's coming soon to a neighborhood near you.

Moochelle's face is an assault weapon.

She reminds me of Divine of Pink Flamingo's fame.

If the White House is genuine about reducing weapons in the US, then the first step must be to remove the right to bear arms from the Constitution!!!

May as well remove the right to fish for barramundi.

Won't happen, Gov, but a yearly registration fee for all multi-shot weapons would be a better start.
Also, a per unit security tax on ammunition, to pay to sort out the nuts who oughtn't own guns.

Snow here tonight, enjoy your Summer.

your implication is a bunch of crazy whites afraid of blacks. the reality is a bunch of young blacks killing blacks. about 95% of black victims are killed by blacks.

"In 2008, 2,947 children and teens died from guns in the United States and 2,793 died in 2009 for a total of 5,740—one child or teen every three hours, eight every day, 55 every week for two years.

Young black males die from gun violence at a rate 2.5 times higher than Latino males, and eight times higher than white males. Gun injuries are suffered by black teens at a rate ten times higher than white teens."

It is interesting to see those "crazy whites" who seem to be the bobblehead lobbyists and speaking heads for the gun industry and the gun(*)uggers and NRA?

Is it just a coincidence, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
