Dianne Feinstein To Introduce Assault Weapons Ban On First Day Of Congress

Commented Dec 16, 2012 at 16:42:46 in Politics

“Why do people keep talking about the type of gun you need for hunting? Hunting isn't why we are guaranteed the right to keep guns. We have that right because we need to defend the country and keep our government in check. That is why it is a right that our government doesn't have the authority to take away according to the constitution.

So when you talk about the guns needed for hunting it shows that you have no clue what you are talking about and makes you look foolish.”

apduncan on Dec 16, 2012 at 16:53:10

“So you and your guns are going to take on the might of the US Armed Forces?

Are YOU going to go against the US Government with your guns???”

“Why is speculation allowed at all? Just completely do away with it.”

“Oil is a commodity. All commodity futures trade on some degree of speculation.

You may even do it yourself, if you lock in your heating oil price each fall.

Unfortunately, energy (oil) is a different animal - there are few producers, and collusion runs rampart.”

KidIcarus on Jul 29, 2009 at 12:19:24

“No, the way is works is for industries (airlines, etc...) to be able to buy oil at a certain price for delivery on a certain date, this way changes in price do not effect them. Where it went wrong is the people who have absolutely no intention of receiving the oil trading.”

“I see things that remind me of idiocracy every day. Obama is a step towards Comachio. People want laws based on emotions rather than facts. People are lazy and expect to be taken care of. Scam artists like Chuck Shumer, Barney Frank, and Charlie Wrangle think people will believe anything they tell us while they are stealing the government blind. The religious right wants to try and govern morality and challenge basic science. Anyone who believes the Earth is 6000 years old is almost as ignorant as the ones worrying about global warming.”

“How is Bloomberg in office after a speech like that? Everything he says is a lie. Criminals can't get CCWs. Why would the police want to stop anyone from carrying a gun? Where do they find these special needs governors??”

“The 15-year-old that murdered Michael Price Jr., according to the Chronicle, "opened fire after he got into an argument over the victim's having not traveled fast enough down an escalator, investigators said Monday." Price was shot three times as he was trying to flee the group of teens. So nice to have a loaded weapon around when you get upset, isn’t it?

“Why would the police want to stop anyone from carrying a gun? Because civilians have neither the proper training nor clear presence of mind in the use of deadly force. Carrying a loaded firearm is a risk to you and innocent bystanders. Cops accidentally kill innocent people, why should we expect more from untrained civilians. BTW: a written test, a video and a couple of hours on an indoor range is insufficient. These two tragic shooting occurred within one week.
A 2-year-old girl was shot and critically injured during a wedding reception at an Indianapolis park, police said. Two women also were wounded by gunfire.
Police say a 2-year-old girl is in critical condition after being shot by her 4-year-old brother at a Las Vegas home.”

“By "special needs" I'll assume you're referring to Bloomberg. I know how important it is to you gun freaks to appear well-informed, so, in the interest of helping you keep up that appearance, Bloomberg is a mayor.”

“The federal government has gotten so large and bloated that it is a joke. They try to regulate everything and act to control peoples lives. Their only real reasons for existing are to protect the country from foreign threats and keep trade between the states running smoothly. Who is going to get the federal government back down in size to where it is supposed to be?”

“A government is also suppose to PROTECT it's citizens (from corporate greed , abuse of power, etc.) and keep them safe (health care = healthy people = Higher productivity).

“I have read and heard an awful lot about the current financial crisis. Capitalism did NOT get us into this. Government meddling by crooked politicians got us into this. The bailouts were one of the biggest scams ever perpetrated by the banks and their paid for politicians.”

“Its a stupid country because it has a president that has no experience, can't put together a sentence or a thought, and has looked at everything wrong with the economy and ordered more of the same. The politicians like Barney Frank who contributed to collapsing the housing market. If the government would get out of the way and let capitalism work we wouldn't have been in this mess.”

“Maher's right about this being a 'stupid country.' After all, nearly 60 million of somebody voted for John McCain, which would have put Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency. Can you imagine?”

“Why would anyone go to the movies, or anywhere else for that matter, without a gun? It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.”

omobob on Jul 31, 2009 at 18:03:39

“Because most people are shot by people they know. Because carrying a loaded weapon is unsafe in public. You have neither the training or the knowledge to make decisions about the use of lethal force. Police say a 2-year-old girl is in critical condition after being shot by her 4-year-old brother at a Las Vegas home. A 2-year-old girl was shot and critically injured during a wedding reception at an Indianapolis park, police said. Two women also were wounded by gunfire. These are why carrying a loaded weapon is dangerous and deadly.”
