Area gun sales, fears rising

Not according the the US Supreme Court. If it were, they would have held that previous bans on assault rifles were an infringment.  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #3837)

When did I ever say that I fight for a ban on all guns?  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #3836)

What the 2012 election taught us

If this is true, then why didn't Rush, Dick Morris, O'Reilly, etc. tell you about it BEFORE the election? The right wing echo chamber repeatedly predicted a big Romney win. Not once before the election did I hear any of them say, "Well, of course, the Democrats have an evil army of leeches that will probably out number us God-fearin', gun-totin' patriots. So we might as well expect to lose, cause them dang takers just have us makers outnumbered." Did you hear anything like that BEFORE the election? No. Instead, you heard Bill O'Reilly repeatedly say, "The President is in big trouble heading into the election." And you heard Morris say, "Romney will win by a landslide. He'll get about 55 percent of the popular vote and about 320 electoral votes." The only reason they came up with that "takers vs makers" nonsense is because they needed to explain how they blew the election predictions, and quick, lest their right wing rube listeners turn on them. So what could be more perfect than telling the rubes, "Oh, the reason you lost is because you are so morally superior, and we forgot that the true-blue, hard-working patriots are in the minority".  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #7328)

As long as you keep believing that, your side will continue to lose. You need to face reality. The GOP didn't lose because Obama and the Democrats handed out "free stuff" or gave cash incentives to vote for them. Consider this: I voted for Obama, and I know a lot of people who also voted for Obama. And neither myself, nor anyone I know received any "free stuff" or cash incentives to vote for him. When you let the right wing talkers convince you that "free stuff" is the reason you lost, you are being played for a sucker (again). Think about this: the same guys who told you that Mitt would win in a landslide are now telling you that he never had a chance. Does that really make any sense? In other words, if all this business about "takers outnumbering the makers" is true, why didn't Rush, Dick Morris, O'Reilly, etc. tell you about it BEFORE the election?  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #7322)

Well, all I know is that the right wingers are always boasting about how powerful their message is. Don't you guys always brag about how Rush Limbaugh has the most listeners? Doesn't Fox News claim to be "the most trusted cable news network"? Isn't Bill O'Reilly the most watched show on cable news? It sounds to me like the problem isn't that your message didnt get out. I think the problem for you is that your message DID get out.  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #7321)

So what are you complaining about? It looks like you agree with me that a ban on all guns can't be upheld.  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #3828)

The American voters heard all the arguments on both sides. Then they decided for themselves which candidates, and which party, made the most sense to them, and they voted accordingly. The do so every four years. They heard your point of view non-stop since 2008. They heard all of your arguments that Obama is a Marxist, a Muslim, that he was not born in the US, that he hates America and wants to destroy it, etc. The American people heard your message loud and clear. And they decided that you're nuts. It's that simple.  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #7316)

Well, he says that the bill bans all arms. This is incorrect. The bill contains about 900 exemptions. The idea that any senator or any member of the house would propose a bill outlawing all firearms is patently absurd.  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #3825)

Dear Right Wing Loon, Thank you for your interest in my recent Topix post. Although you babbling reply was mostly unintelligible, please be assured that you opinion is very important to me and my staff, as we are always anxious to hear from the mentally challenged. We will make every effort to respond to you within the next 7 to 10 business days. Until then, please feel free to continue drooling, crying, and soiling yourself over the recent election, in which Barak Hussein Obama so thoroughly humiliated you, as he will no doubt continue to do over the course of the next four years. Best Wishes as you continue to live the life of a sad and angry failure, Calm Liberal Calm Liberal Enterprises, LTD. 123 Liberal Lane Washington, D.C.  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #7308)

So in other words, you're saying that she has introduced a bill banning all "arms"?  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #3822)

Actually, the right wing teabaggers beleive that the reason they lost is because they weren't CRAZY ENOUGH! According to their reasoning, the voters rejected them because they were too "moderate ". lol Its like hearing John Dillinger argue that the cops were against him because he wasn't robbing enough banks.  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #7300)

Well, I'm not sure whether or not you can make a charge of treason stick. I checked the constitution, and although the second amendment does talk about the right to keep and bear arms, it doesn't mention "semi-automat ic pistols that use a detachale box magazine". Even if she tried to introduce a bill banning all firearms, that wouldn't really be treason. Unconstitional maybe, but not treason.  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #3820)

I never said that government has no need of a foundation. If fact, if you would read my post, I acutally agreed that the founders laid a good foundation for our government. But it was only a foundation. It is up to future generations to build upon it. That is why we have constitutional amendments, and that is why congress sometimes passes new laws. What's my definition of "bothered "? In the context of my post, I mean, "would object to" or "would view negatively".  (Jan 25, 2013 | post #7271)

You asked if i would say that people who listen to heavy metal are the "same" as those that listen to Bach. I would say that they are listening to different kinds of music, but they are both listening to music. Then you say, "People that listen to AM radio normal dont listen to music and only tune into the radio for talk radio...... People that listen to pop countdown very seldom ever listen to talk radio. I never disputed either of those things. All I said is that people who listen to music on the radio, or listen to talk radio on the radio, or listen to Rush Limbaugh on the radio, all of those people are "radio listeners". I never said that people who listen to music are "the same" as people who listen to Rush. I simply point out that they are all members of the radio listening audience. I don't know why you have to claim that I said things that I never said. I just don't know what point you are trying to make. I guess you are trying to say that people who listen to other radio programs shouldn't be counted as not listening to Rush, because they don't listen to Rush. I guess you're right. If you only count Rush Limbaugh's listeners as radio listeners, then yes, I guess you could say that "all radio listeners" listen to Rush. (rolls eyes and gives up)  (Jan 25, 2013 | post #3739)
