Too much violence. Too much killing.
This 'cannot' be allowed to continue.
That just shows how great and effective the strict Gun Control laws of Chicago are working for the law abiding citizens of Chicago for years and the Pro Gun Control fanatics want to expand that kind of Society Chicago is experiencing and turn the rest of the United States into a Society like Chicago, No Thanks!.

Actually, you will hear derision and outright laughter.
Here's where the thieves knew for sure there were weapons inside:
Funny how those thirty guns didn't do a damn thing to protect the house.
Tray, I told you you'll will never get an answer out of these two.

It is a shame they didn't do this after the new weapons ban kicks in. They wouldn't have been able to take them because no background check would have been completed.

They didn't protect the house but yet they never did kill the guys wife either. How can you explain that?

This has to be a misprint with the news media. Chicago has a tough gun ban.

I love to watch them squirm. They are so easy to lead around just by suggestion. It tickles me every time they fall back on the same old tired sexual degrading remarks, it's the same as admitting defeat just in an angry pissed off kind of way. I just consider it a hobby that brings me much joy.

Teabaggers are running congress.
If teabaggers were so "concerned" about pork, why didn't they identify who put the riders on the bill 3 months ago, it would have been resolved and the waste would have been eliminated the following week, why didn't they?
The disagreements sharpened when three Red Hook Volunteers members accepted payment for their work through two grants provided by the Brooklyn Community Foundation.
"There's no need for any political representatives here, there's no need for anyone other than Occupy people and Red Hook residents," Manski, the Occupy Sandy and Occupy Wall Street press contact, asserted.
"As soon as people get paid, you have them guarding their resources and contacts and trying to hold onto their place in the work, and not sharing information because they want to continue to be paid."
"Volunteers" getting paid?
Sounds like teabagger "volunteers".
The Tea Party is not in control of Congress, the Republican Party is. I originally supported the concepts of the Tea Party. I will not support what the part has become. Your mistake is you believe anyone that isn’t a flaming liberal is a member of the Tea Party.

Those volunteers were a splinter group from Occupy. They were unlikely members of the Tea Party. Tossing terms around like teabagger erodes your credibility. You come of like a someone that didn’t succeed in life and became bitter for your own failings.

A Republican congressman who voted against federal funding for Hurricane Sandy relief last week asked the federal government for millions in funding for his Mississippi district in 2005, after it was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.
Rep. Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., then the chief financial officer for the Biloxi Public Housing Authority, appealed to the federal government for Katrina relief money, to the tune of more than $38.5 million.
“We will rebuild and we’ll provide homes for those displaced; but we cannot do that until it is funded,” Palazzo wrote in a BPHA pamphlet published in August 2005.“We’re ready to do the work — but we simply do not have the financial resources on our own to handle a catastrophe like Katrina.”
“Tell our national leaders — don’t send more inspectors — we know what’s damaged and how to fix it,” he added.“Send us money so we can put families back together and do our part to rebuild our community.”
Palazzo, whose district lies on the Gulf Coast, cited the deficit last week when voting against a House bill authorizing $9.7 billion in federal funding for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. From his spokesman Laura Chambers:
“Congressman Palazzo fully supports a Sandy relief package that includes spending offsets.
Hypocritical teabagger.
Even the current Sandy Aid Bill is loaded with pork. http://www.examiner.com/article/ted-cruz-70-o...

One of your own, Bloomberg was very critical of the original bill which wasn’t passed. http://politicker.com/2013/01/mayor-bloomberg...

One of the biggest supporters of the original bill, Chris Cristie, a Republican. He was sharply critical of fellow Republicans for not passing the original pork laden bill. Despite Mayor Bloomberg coming out with the statement “blame pork, not Republicans”.

You watch the talking heads comment on issues without delivering the critical details. Then you blame teabaggers. Reality check, the Tea Party has no real power. Your true hatred of the Tea Party comes from their attack on entitlement spending.

I absolutely agree with their founding principles. Unfortunately the Tea Party has been hijacked by a lot of extreme right wing zealots. The founding principles remain sound. Have you ever bothered to honestly research the Tea Party? Take a look, what’s to disagree with here? http://www.teapartypointers.com/fundamentals....

I have no quarrel with NRA members it’s the new leadership (Keene and Lapiere) that is insult to law abiding members. As an x-military marksman I find the NRA’s approach to fire arms both, insufficient and dishonest, driven entirely by an overwhelming desire of power, political control and monetary gain, as well as the complete absence of any sense of ethics or a desire to learn and do right by our citizenry!
To only find comfort, and safety, in arms is very, very sad indeed. Ronald Reagan was pro-gun control because of the Black Panthers arming themselves. The Ku Klux Klan was founded with the idea to seize guns from freed slaves. I don't buy the notion of Second Amendment absolutists that individually-owned guns are the best defense against the imposition of tyrannical rule in America, if anything it’s comical, I think we, you and I, are pretty damn safe from tyrannical rule. Of course, if you were an African-American in 1870s or 1950s, you might have felt a lot safer with a gun. It is my belief that ‘qualified people’ have the right to bear arms, and that the government has the right and the responsibility to regulate the sale and ‘the carry’ of guns. There seems to be no sense with the gun-crowed that the very presence of a gun – like all forms of power – alters its bearer’s state of mind, that the possession of a tool of lethal violence will invariably change how one interacts with the world. George Zimmerman, by his own telling in court documents, had he been unarmed he would have never stepped out his car. It would have saved a life and hell of a lot of trouble for himself.
I’ve asked you to present evidence of your claim that Zimmerman wouldn’t have gotten out of his truck if he was unarmed. You failed to present any evidence.

Beyond that you harbor a twisted view of both the NRA and US history. Even when you’re given evidence to prove you wrong with explanation you continue to hold your view steadfast. Read a history of the KKK. It wasn’t founded to seize weapons from blacks. The initial organization changed. Do read the history.

Sort of the intellectual equivalent of smoking ants with a magnifying glass. They start to smoke then burn up when the facts don't support what the dailykos told them to say.

The first victim in Newtown was heavily armed and now she's dead because of it – clearly the argument for more guns is hardly the answer to the problem. An argument can be made that the 2nd amendment is hopelessly outdated and obsolete – every gun needs to be registered on a yearly bases and require liability insurance. The wingnuz clinging to their guns like a baby clinging to its woobie is reminiscent to the creationist nonsense! We know more about nature and its evolutionary continuum than ever before and we know it clearly and without a doubt, yet here are the wingnuz, knowing it better by regression like a bunch of degenerates! Next time you see a member of Congress pushing a pro-gun agenda, ask them why they feel the U.S. government needs to be overthrown. Ask them why they support terrorism. The Second Amendment has been voided by history and was never in place for any of the reasons the NRA, any senator or congressman has given as a reason for opposing sensible gun regulation since Reconstruction. Besides, the 2nd amendment has nothing to do with gun-control in a modern society!
