The time is now upon us a nation of law abiding citizens to revolt and do away with the scumbag liberal politicians and restore dignity to America. Chiseling on the 2nd Amendment is a crime of treason. Remaining complacent is not the answer. If our weapons of self defense are taken or infringed upon in any manner we are lost. As so many millions who now live under tyrannical suppresion and are nothing more than pawns of the elite power segment of maggots!

Such an outrage hasn't been spoken since the created, sponsored, passed and signed "Patriot" Act.

PS: for what it is worth: when the same gun nut buys two more guns to add to the six guns he already has, the only impact it has on crime is when the stupid sot has his house burglarized and his guns stolen, it would be adding to the problem, not taking it away.
In the end- when he shoots his wife and kills his family- it doesn't mater so much that he still has four guns he didn't use.

Why don't6 you state specifically why there was negative growth you idiot?

Why?

Here's why Sparky - defense spending was cut 22% dingleberry;

""All areas combined were cut 18% on average, with Republicans cutting 12% and Democrats 22%," the study notes. Most participants were surprised by the level of America's defence spending when it was held up against the rest of the discretionary budget, historical levels of spending, and the defence spending of other nations. A previous poll showed similar results—support for defence cuts—when participants were informed about the comparable size of the 31 largest categories in the federal discretionary budget."

Too bad you right wing imbeciles always claim "government doesn't create jobs" - but boy do you guyys cry foul when defense spending is cut, automatically claiming "JOBS WILL BE LOST!!!"

<quoted text>Murder is down 10,000 murders a year in this country since 1992, serious and violent crimes are down by more than 50% over the same period and this includes juvenile offenders as well, in spite of;
1) more violent video games,
2) more people populating the country, and,
3) almost double the firearms in private possession, including the prevalence of so called "assault rifles" and larger capacity magazines.
Your moral decay of society argument fails based on easily provable facts.
I wasn't saying that societal decay is causing an uptick in the overall murder rate. I meant that societal decay is responsible for things like the increase in the ghetto "thug" culture and the increase in the extreme, horrifying nature of modern mass-murders. It's also allowed & promoted through ignorance the cancer known as Progressivism to gain popularity through the lies of moral equivalency.

Honestly, I don't see movies, TV, and violent video games as the problem. Young people can handle and process those things as the fiction they are IF they have been brought up within an environment that doesn't denigrate religion and reinforces a code of moral behavior and thought.

I have taken directly to the gun owners when I started a petition drive to require background checks in all government buildings in my county a long time before it was (finally) required by state law.

And I was the ONLY one there on my side of the table because the fair board managers called in the NRA who showed up in force.

It seems that pusseeies with guns are still pusseeies.

And I'd stomp on you like a the m/f cockroach you are, alan, and scrap you off the bottom of my shoe like dogsh!t that I don't want to track into the porch.

Alan, this person has several names. Even argues with himself/herself/itself. Knows everything. Writes like is rich beyond everyone else. Yet the TOPIX forums is the domain he/she/it chooses to spend all its time on. The saying "what goes around comes around" is not set in stone. But it does happen more often then not. Many of us have screwed up. And have taken the slings and arrows from it. This one evidently has not. Or perhaps has taken crap from everyone in life and finds solace in ripping everyone apart. Either way, he/she/it does more for the opposition then the progressives. For in the end, he/she/it will lose if being a progressive Dem is his truth. This era is a chapter in a book not finished. When the time comes, welcome friendship from like minded practical people no matter what their political views. And of these scum, shun them and tell them to leave. And if they force themselves on you, kill them for they will try to do the same.
