The nonsense about what it takes for a president to win a victory in Congress has reached ridiculous dimensions. The fact that Barack Obama failed to win legislation to place further curbs on the purchase of guns has made people who ought to know better decide that he's not an "arm-twister."
If you think these two nitwits made a bloodbath at a public event... imagine what a handful of suicidal Al Qaeda types in Kevlar, armed with Bushmasters, could have done to that crowd before they died.
The liberating thing about using propaganda is that the truth is no obstacle. In the NRA's case, the organization can continue to lie with absolute impunity and without consequences.
To put the wide-ranging influence of the NRA into perspective, let's try an exercise in alternate history.
I should have responded that laws in general are made for knaves. Good citizens are assumed to do what is right on their own. We apply these laws only to those who for one reason or another pay no mind to others and the common good.
In the wake of the failure of the Senate to pass even a modest background check bill, many around the country are still scratching their heads. How co...
In opposing any and all gun control legislation, the NRA argues that we have to let the good guys have guns so they can protect us from the bad guys. Perhaps the NRA spokespeople can try to divide the world into good guys and bad guys. But Christians should not.
It's frustrating to see how Congress legislates not on what's best for the people, but what's best for the lobbyists. I've been hitting the NRA and its congressional whores for years, putting me on the NRA enemies list, which makes me feel like I'm doing something right.
Whether or not these challenges will materialize and be successful, the perceived threat is such that many incumbents don't want to put any daylight between themselves and the NRA.
An intimidated group of U.S. Senators, in the minority, recently denied what the vast majority of Americans want in terms of a modest first step to be...
It's heartbreakingly clear that the Democrats won't act courageously. But a number of non-partisan outside groups will.
President Obama had poured his heart and political capital into background checks and gun reform, yet his efforts were met with failure, in a coup against the will of the People orchestrated by the NRA and their lackeys in the Senate.
Every morning the dead greet me before the caffeine gives me a chance to focus their reality. I post their stories to a Facebook wall. Why?
Authorities will now be forced to spend countless hours and personnel trying to track down exactly how, when and where they got their guns.
We need to work together, you and me. This is not a red state/blue state issue. This is not even a Second Amendment issue. We don't want your guns. We do want to make our streets and schools and parks safe. For your sake. For our sake. For our children's sake.
