Why is it a badge of honor for you gun huggers about whether you can hold a gun, caress a gun, hug a gun, shoot a gun,**** a gun and/or need a gun in your paranoia?

Never held a gun - and proud of it.

Good for you, I have never stated that all people must own guns, hold guns or shoot guns, HOWEVER, do not infringe on my right to do so. The only issue I take with this obviously fake photo of the great brown hunter and his skeet shooting is that he is obviously doing something that he has never done before and looks as comfortable doing it as a lesbian at a bachalors party. Why does obama feel the need to attempt to look like something that he has never been.

As for your pride in never having held a gun, stay strong with your decision, it makes the rest of us safer.

Yes, despite the NRA, the gun business and the gun huggers, it is not a badge of honor to know how to shoot a gun.

What is it with you lib nutters? If you don't like guns, DON'T BUY ONE!!!
Dear, that is the issue.

If you gun huggers kept your guns safely off our streets, out of our movie houses, not inside a school classroom, the issue would be just about you and your cold/warm/hot gun "keeping you safe".

Of course that is not reality.

Those kids had their lives "infringed", Gabby Giffords had her rights "infringed", the Aurora folks had their lives "infringed" and anyone - yes everyone - has the right to feel safe in those places without being "infringed" by you gun huggers.

Day after day there are countless people, most that you will never hear of who have their rights infringed by animals. We are a nation that knows it, but can, say anything about it. Shhhhhhh!

First, for your edification, a gun can NOT kill anybody. Take a gun, any gun load it and place it on a table for a year and do not touch it, nobody will get shot. It is only defective people who kill other people and sometimes use a gun as their tool of choice. If your limp wristed judges and social workers did not slap these people on the wrist and send them back out on society a lot of this would not happen. Since you harp on gun control, why would you think that we need any car that can go faster than 55mph? After all, traffic deaths still trump gun related deaths.

Again, if you think that holding a gun is not a badge of honor (neither do I) why the hell did Little Brown in the White House feel the need to have his picture taken with the shotgun?

Again...and again...the picture was only put out because of the vile idiots that called Obama a liar and they were proved wrong. no other reason.

If only we can get all his records with all the questions asked about him and his life history so all the idiots can understand it. We know more of Chairman Mao then this dude. Especially those old white muthas, you know, those who went and graduated from school no later then the mid 70's.

It's stupid and disingenuous to make the obvious statement that a "gun cannot kill anyone." It's a strawman, since no one's ARGUING THAT IT CAN. Guns in the hands of human beings, however, kill thousands every year just in the U.S.

Blaming the courts and laws is fine, and some of what you say is true about failure to find, arrest, and properly punish criminals. But MANY of the homicides occur spontaneously as a result of domestic conflicts, or are suicides, or are due to accidents. Laws won't stop those things from happening, but not having a gun in the house would tend to prevent most of them.

As to that absurd argument about cars, slowing them below 55 wouldn't stop accidents or deaths, so your point is meaningless.

Why Obama's PR people decided to release that pictures is obvious - politics. He doesn't want to be seen as an enemy of guns or people who use them. Just PR, obviously. But calling him "little brown" is pretty racist. Might want to avoid that sort of comment.

You the guys that go back to the 50's, nazis, slavery, the inquisition, etc. And you get a lot of sympathy for their suffering and your largesse. So to offset what you accuse others i tell you what most people i know went through. You know...the truth. Soon enough you will get yours. I wonder if you will get any sympathy. For you certainly don't dole any out.
