There has never been a shooting at the private school my daughters attend. No crazy children of the staff. No crazy student with a gun, why is that? When society controls the crazy people we will talk about the crazy gun nuts.

A Gallup poll taken a few days ago shows only FOUR PERCENT, thatís 4% for you stupid damn liberals reading this, of Americans want more gun laws and better yet, many states are passing laws AGAINST more gun laws and AGAINST Federal confiscation, etc. Of course the idiots in California not only hand over their God-given RIGHT to Keep and Bear Arms like sheep, they passed a law RAISING THEIR TAXES! Stupid breeds stupid.

This, like MOST of the posts here, is what Rightie "commentary" and "debate" amount to - hatred, division, name-calling, frenzied offtopic spews of hatred, racism, disgusting dishonesty, spin, and hypocrisy.
Your hatred for anyone black, other than a few 'uncle toms' you approve of, is disgusting. Here's hoping the Panthers torch your neighborhood some day.
That's probably what they would do too. Violent animals. That's why you always carry your gun; in case you do run into losers like them.

Don't be silly. You can't ban pressure cookers. But the libs may want to limit their size to four quarts. And while we're at it, let's start to have background checks for people wanting to buy cell phones.

Rightwingers and their heavily-armed lunatics murder our children and are saluted by NRA gun-lobbyists who happily pay this horrific price for their ability to buy and sell weapons of death.
Here's hoping it all comes home to roost, for ALL of you. You deserve to DIE by the sword, filth. You RICHLY deserve it.
We may die by the sword, but we will die with one in our hand. You can die by the sword with your hands in your pockets crying like a baby because you have no way to defend yourself. Aren't choices nice? You can decide for yourself if you want to be armed or not. Choices means freedom. The ore choices you have, the more freedom you have. That's why Democrats are constantly trying to take choices away from Americans.

Just follow the money.
There are over 2 million incidents a year of Americans protecting themselves or others using a gun. Do you really think if we outlawed guns, the criminals would give theirs up? What an imagination you on the left have. Hey! How long as recreational narcotics been illegal in this country anyway? In a related question, why does the US have the highest percentage of their population locked up in prison compared to the rest of the industrialized world?

I want to outlaw right-wing asshats who demean the deaths of other people by using them to push their pro-gun agenda.

Cite the poll, Snuffy. C'mon, let's see it.

Polls as recent as the FIRST OF APRIL have shown that upwards of 90% of Americans wanted extended background checks - and yet the GOPee torched them in the Senate.

Nothing but stupid grandstanding - when has the Constitution ever been in jeopardy, requiring people to defend and die for it, other than in some f-ing wingnuz loony's head?

Is the NRA treasonous?
The inability to quickly track explosives or the gunpowder in the Boston bombs is due to government policy designed and promoted by the NRA, which has found a way to transform every massacre associated with weapons into an opportunity for the munitions companies that sustain it to sell more guns, gunpowder and bullets.

Were they not home made explosives?
Everything the libs do sells more guns than anything the NRA has ever done.

1. You're lying.

2. If that WAS true, why would you justify yourself by "lib" behavior, dumbass?

3. I'd rather pound your wife.
