Hmmm...the left wing scumbags in this nation are claiming that people who have mental issues should not be allowed to have a gun. If the goverment can advocate that some of our returning soldiers can no longer have a firearm due to mental issues why is some left wing democRAT bitch allowed to have one?

Because the ruling class has it's privileges. It's similar to how they exempted themselves from obamacare.(It will be interesting to see if you get audited by the IRS next year.)

Liberalism is a mental disorder. Therefore no liberal should have access to a firearm. It's a public health and safety issue.

You are correct about the ruling class and their exemptions but unlike them I have nothing to hide when it comes to my taxes.

Kind of hypocritical for Gabby to be seen handling a firearm given her stance on everyones right to bear arms.

That does not matter. As we have all seen you just have to oppose the administration and the IRS will harass you. In the eyes of the IRS you are guilty until proven innocent and proving your innocence can be costly.

If she is suggesting that brain-damaged people should be prevented from having guns --- then she needs to put that gun down and step away.

She of all people should know that not all people with brain abnormalities should be singled out and prevented from owning a gun.

Apparently she wants everyone elses right to own a gun to be scrutinized, but somehow she should get a free pass???

Answer this - why do simpletons such as yourself call everyone with an opposing point of view a communist or socialist?

Having nothing to hide has nothing to do with IRS audits under this administration, anymore than having the right to own a firearm. Sorry.

A remarkably rational and thoughtful woman who no doubt confuses the hell out of the far Right, who can't deal with liberals who support gun rights or who shoot guns themselves.

Unless you can show that she's opposed to ANY personal possession or use of firearms, including range shooting, you're an idiot.

Show how she's "brain-damaged," you Nazi hag. Well, more brain-damaged than YOU are, that'd be a start.

I love this board, it displays the raving, hate-crazed insanity of your basic right-wing, Republican gun-nut. Woman-hating, class war, mocking handicapped folks, and just plain lying and resentment. You and your Party are real pieces of....something.

You talk all of this freedom as per the progressive agenda. You decimate everyone on the other side and have views like we don't like roads and help during disasters and that crap. We watch one TV station and listen to a few radio people according to your Alinsky diatrobe. You deflect the war mongering of the president by tar and feathering the previous one who we all so loved dearly. I can write more, but why? Government stole the wealth from those who paid down debts and savers. Progressives say nary a word as the movement must go on. Well trampling on people with no concern and blaming them for it is not conducive to brotherhood. Taxes are to high and going higher. The aging ones that are nearing social security did no wrong. Many of them were warning when they were younger and were overshadowed by people like you. Small real changes back then in social security, medicare, medicaid, welfare and so much more would have alleviated the major issues we face now and which will get worse in the future. There is some guilt by some of the old people now collecting social security and medicare. Even though most need it and use it. There will be none with us. We get the smell of political skunks with their hints of death panels and the rest. And frankly we know there will be some changes. Reality is, many people saved a few hundred grand or so to help with social security. they are not going to have that when they reach age. It is going to be tough. the cost will probably be three to four times more then what we are paying now in fifteen to twenty years or so just for the aged. the thieves you love stole our resources. To keep their agendas going. They love saying people are suffering so they can raise taxes more and more. Repubs are involved in it also. So many issues. So many problems. So when people ask to clean up the corruption and it is massive, there is always an accusation of some type in return. We will learn the hard way about real poverty and want. And we did it to ourselves through selfish desires prodded by hate monging fools who pass themselves off as our benefactors with them in line toge the first cut of the taxpayers money.

Her brain was damaged by a bullet. She is still recovering.

Yes, she is brain damaged. It is the truth. It is not hate-crazed insanity.

To see it as hate-crazed is simply an over-reactionary response.
