<quoted text>So far in Obama's presidency, there have been over 78,000 felons turnned down for failing a background check. It is a felony for a felon to attempt to purchase a weapon. To date, Holder nor the Obama administration have arrested or prosicuted any of the 78,000. Ignoring the law again, while proposing more.
What do you expect. The ignored the laws and flooded Mexico with guns

Ruby Ridge
On about August 24, 1992, the fourth day of the siege on the Weaver family, FBI Deputy Assistant Director Danny Coulson wrote a memo:
OPR 004477
Something to Consider
1. Charge against Weaver is Bull Shit.
2. No one saw Weaver do any shooting.
3. Vicki has no charges against her.
4. Weaver's defense. He ran down the hill to see what dog was
barking at. Some guys in camys shot his dog.
Started shooting at him. Killed his son. Harris did the
shooting [of Degan]. He [Weaver] is in pretty strong legal position."[50]
Both the internal 1994 Ruby Ridge Task Force Report and the public 1995 Senate subcommittee report on Ruby Ridge criticized the rules of engagement as unconstitutional.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruby_Ridge
"Last August 15,(1995) the Justice Department announced that it was paying the surviving Weaver family members $3.1 million to settle their wrongful-death lawsuit against the federal government."
Don't confuse him with facts. They had shoot to kill orders

I'm aware of those facts, thank you. I've read the article too.
I'm talking about how more guns equal more confrontations. If they'd confront Walker as they did, what do you think they'd do if YOU showed up for a meeting with feds carrying a loaded assault rifle?
THINK.
Probably the same thing they would do if I showed up with a finely honed Samurai sword. They get a bit nervous when they aren't the only ones with weapons.

Mr. Obama called it an "act of terror" the very next day. As with most Righties, you worry more about what the President said than what the terrorists DID.
The only "lies" here are your own.
And for the next two weeks, he claimed it was a spontaneous uprising due to a web videos released 3/4 months before. Which lie should I believe, his or yours?

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee today, National Rifle Association C.E.O. Wayne LaPierre warned that the N.R.A. would vigorously oppose any legislation that “limits the sale, purchase, or ownership of politicians.”

“Politicians pose no danger to the public if used correctly,” said Mr. LaPierre, who claims to have over two hundred politicians in his personal collection.“Everyone hears about the bad guys in Congress. Well, the only thing that stops a bad guy with a vote is a good guy with a vote. I’m proud to be the owner of many of those guys.”

Mr. LaPierre’s comments drew a sharp rebuke from Carol Foyler, a politician-control advocate who has spent the past twelve years lobbying for stricter limits on the sale of politicians.

“Right now, a man like Wayne LaPierre can walk right into Congress and buy any politician he wants,” she said.“There’s no background check, no waiting period. And so hundreds of politicians are falling into the hands of people who are unstable and, quite frankly, dangerous.”

In addition to limiting the sale of politicians, Ms. Foyler said, it is time for society to take a look at the “sheer number” of politicians in the U.S.:“There’s no doubt that we would be safer if there were fewer of them.”

For his part, the N.R.A. leader ended his testimony by serving notice that he would “resist any attempt” to take away the hundreds of elected officials he says are legally his.

As if to illustrate that point, he clutched Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) close to his chest and bellowed,“From my cold, dead hands.”

Read my profile! I am hardly what you'd call a "Macho type" but I still support the second amendment of our wonderful Constitution! I think people who want to enslave themselves by disarming themselves and giving the Govt a monopoly on power, are mentally disturbed.

Your definitions are simple-minded, as befits a gun nut and self-styled macho type. And your attitude towards the government borders on the seditious.
If you don't like it, just leave. Don't stink it up for the REST of us.

Don't be too sure about that! How about that creep John Roberts caving in on "Obamacare". He said he had a change of heart! More likely he got a midnight call from one of Obama's thugs.

Obviously, the majority of the voters in this country do not fear their government. The logical and healthy thing for anyone who does fear it is to leave. Plain and simple. The people spoke and it wasn't what you monster idiots wanted to hear. Tough sh!t. There's not one thing you can do about it other than your typical repugnantcan lying, cheating, stealing and losing. Most of what you write is nonsense because everyone knows it's just the ranting and raving of a poor loser. Same old, same old.

Funny, I was doing research yesterday and found the old Bed and Breakfast I used to stay in Cambridge at. It has been turned into a hotel now by hooking three of the multi level homes together. I lived in England for a little over three years and now my daughter has married into an English family. Still love the fish and chips, but only if it is fresh cod.

It is really too bad that thousands have died for this country to maintain its constitution and freedoms, and then we let some little maggots with a bag of candy do more damage than Hitler or Stalin did together. The little maggots first divided the country and then started their class warfare. With out the maggots our wounds would heal.
