Oh, I see. They are NRA members, even though they really aren't NRA members, simply because you label them NRA members to suit your needs for the sake of argument.

Will you label me a millionaire?

<quoted text>I never gave a qualifier. I simply explained what Romney supporters did last November. It's not like it was a surprise or unexpected though.

I simply indicated you're claiming "I" have a position.

Now you're claiming "I'm" cowardly.

Well son, thanks for "assigning" that position to make your point!
I've seen the same Romney supporters on here after the election that I saw on here before the election.

You're pretty vocal for someone without a position.

I'm claiming your method of operation is cowardly. Again, please work on your reading comprehension skills.

Wayne LaPierre stood before an American flag and soberly addressed the nation about firearms and student safety: "We believe in absolutely gun-free, zero-tolerance, totally safe schools. That means no guns in America's schools, period," LaPierre said, carving out a "rare exception" for professional law enforcement. LaPierre even proposed making the mere mention of the word "guns" in schools a crime: "Such behavior in our schools should be prosecuted just as certainly as such behavior in our airports is prosecuted," LaPierre said. No this speech wasn't delivered in an alternate universe. The date was May 1st, 1999, at the NRA's national convention in Denver. In the aftermath of the rampage at Columbine in nearby Littleton CO.

The disconnect between the NRA chief's conciliatory address 14 years ago and his combative press conference in the aftermath of the slaughter of 20 first-graders in Newtown CT, could hardly be more jarring. In his now-infamous December 21st tirade, LaPierre ripped the gun-free zones he once championed as an invitation to the "monsters and predators of this world," advertising to "every insane killer in America that schools are their safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk."

Shameless LaPierre then offered what he called a "proven" solution to school gun violence one that would open a lucrative new market for the gun industry while tidily expanding the power of the NRA itself. "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," before proposing that armed, NRA-trained vigilantes should patrol each of the nation's nearly 100,000 public schools.
The man is either on medication or he has constructed his own universe complete disconnected from reality!

Yes we do, and rule one is not to read those left-wing blogs and get your information from a reliable source.
Congress has the right to redistrict whatever they desire. It's been going on for many decades now. Republicans do it when they have power, and Democrats do it when they have power.
Voter-ID is something Democrats resist. Why? Because it closes off avenues to cheat. They use race to make their case although race has absolutely nothing to do with it. It's just that anytime they want something or fight something, they bring up race, slavery, discrimination, women's rights and a number of other falsehoods.
REALLY? Congress can redistrict?!?!?!

I must have missed that one! Please show me that "right" you claim they have.

As for voter ID, it's not something democrats "resist," It was a ploy to keep people from voting. It won't be a issue the next go 'round because the courts have made it clear. You're problem is (as is typical by comic cons) you need to "assign" that to make your case.

As for race, you people keep bringing it up over and over while complaining about others.

amazing....
Yeah

That's good! I've seen them disappear from other threads after making all sorts of predictions and claims and taunts and personal attacks, then fade in a week.

You can claim whatever you want. I've noticed most right wing extremists don't like a level playing field.

You can have a better discussion with "normal" conservatives! And as funny as it may seem to you, you appear to be "more" normal... imo.

As I asked you before. How long have the Democrats been fighting voter ID?

Let me guess, you answered me at some point, and we all missed it, like all the other answers you have provided.

The taunts and personal attacks sound more like progressive methods, but if you say so. I won't call you a liar if I can't prove it.

Again, not liking a level playing field sounds progressive to me.

Thanks? I think. I don't know how to take that. If you think I'm normal,...

Voter registration fraud claims singe GOP

(CBS News) Revelations that the Republican National Committee urged several states to hire a consulting firm that submitted potentially fraudulent voter registration forms in Florida are continuing to cause embarrassment to the Republican Party.

RNC spokesman Sean Spicer said Thursday his group had cut ties to the firm, Strategic Allied Consulting, citing "zero tolerance" for voter fraud. "This is an issue we take extremely seriously," he told CBS News. "When allegations were brought to our attention we severed all ties to the firm."

The Los Angeles Times reported that the RNC urged the state GOP in seven swing states to hire the firm, despite the fact that the man who runs it, Nathan Sproul, has been accused of running firms that have destroyed Democratic registrations. Sproul told the newspaper that RNC officials asked him to set up a new firm, Strategic Allied Consulting, so that his efforts would not be linked to those allegations. The RNC has reportedly paid the firm at least $3.1 million via state parties.

Sproul blamed the suspicious forms on a single employee in Palm Beach County. But Florida election officials tell CBS News they have found a "couple hundred" voter registrations in eight Florida counties with "irregularities" that deserve further scrutiny. They are currently reviewing the registrations and if they find them to be "legally significant" they will turn them over to law enforcement. This could happen by the end of the day.

ACORN, the Democratic-affiliated community organizing group, was accused of a similar type of voter registration fraud in the 2008 campaign cycle. It also responded by blaming bad apples within the organization. Republicans rejected that argument and harshly attacked the group, casting it as having attempted to steal the election on behalf of then-candidate Barack Obama...."

Experence is the best teacher and gun free zones have proven to be killing fields.

In my county , Collier County Florida , the Sheriff will provide experienced road deputies to any public school that request them and some Deputies live on school property , a model for the nation.
