Obama Says Sports Concussions Need More Attention

“Sorry but Obama can't make this happen. The funds have to come from the House Of Representative (as per the Constitution). The House is controlled by the Republicans. The Republicans are the people you need to talk to!”

“The funds are there. Get the hate out of your heart and actually learn what is going on. You only look foolish when you constantly post your hate and blame.”

“It is much more than a money problem. There was some serious fraud at many of the VA hospitals. We need to hire people who understand how to run medical facilities not former military officers who apparently don't get it.”

“Since 1 in 6 to 1 in 8 citizens of the US have a felony conviction of some sort, I would propose that after a felon has served his or her sentence then they would be allowed to purchase a firearm. But only after they have served their sentence.”

Mattie on May 31, 2014 at 12:58:49

“So a man convicted of abusing a spouse or another woman, maybe a man with a restraining order out against him, should be able to buy a weapon, what a good idea....really! We don't have enough violence against women, you want to encourage more.”

Wildkitty on May 31, 2014 at 11:27:55

“Would you say the same thing about their right to VOTE? In MOST states - felons and ex-felons LOSE their right to vote - permanently??

Answer THIS question.
Someone spends time in jail for armed bank robbery or a car-jacking. When they are released from jail would you give that person back the gun (from the police property room) with which he committed the original felony? What do you think the chance is that said ex-felon might commit another felony with that gun?”

“I'd rather see their right to vote restored than their right to own a firearm.”

“They should never be allowed to have a gun.”

Mustang51 on May 30, 2014 at 12:16:25

“If you have ever been convicted of a felony, you are a prohibited purchaser. Felons are not allowed to own firearms. That is existing Federal law.

John, I think if you took a poll, you would find that most felons are democrats. The NRA does not restrict membership, but felons still cannot own firearms.”

dickdata on May 30, 2014 at 11:54:51

“So, in many states, they wouldn't be allowed to vote, but they COULD buy a gun???”

johnfkennedyjr on May 30, 2014 at 11:27:51

“Ex-felons should be forbidden to ever own a gun. They should lose that right with their decision to commit a serious crime. But that would put a huge dent in NRA membership so that's not going to happen.”

“The Founding Fathers said "The power to tax is the power to destroy". Today this should be rephrased to "The power to harass is the power to destroy". DOJ you are out of control. Your approval rating is ZERO and quickly going NEGATIVE.”

Raoul Ducktooth on May 30, 2014 at 11:22:37

“The "Founding Fathers" never said that.
That quote is from Daniel Webster (1782–1852).

This quotation comes from the words of DANIEL WEBSTER and those of JOHN MARSHALL in the Supreme Court case, McCulloch v. Maryland.

Webster, in arguing the case, said: “An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy,” 17 U.S. 327 (1819).

In his decision, Chief Justice Marshall said: “That the power of taxing it [the bank] by the States may be exercised so as to destroy it, is too obvious to be denied” (p. 427), and “That the power to tax involves the power to destroy … [is] not to be denied” (p. 431).

“Face it. The NRA and its politics KILLED Mr. Martinez 's son. The NRA wants the ability of its members to be able to KILL other people. Once-upon-a-time this may have been about hunting but it isn't anymore.

NRA members have the guts to say "This is about killing other people".”

eric sorrentino on May 29, 2014 at 14:05:44

“The NRA did it? Funny, the police are pretty sure it was Rogers. Might want to let them know they should focus their investigative efforts in VA.”

BigBruin78 on May 29, 2014 at 13:33:22

“I guess the fact that the suspect passed all the legally required checks by both the Feds and the State of California (rated an A by Brady) has just passed right over your head. But sure, blame the NRA, its an easy scapegoat.”

“Sorry but the NRA is an organization that enables people to KILL other people in the name of the Second Amendment. It is nothing but a license to KILL and to protected from any kind of responsibility. Have the guts to say you want to carry a gun/rifle to KILL people!”

Makos62 on May 29, 2014 at 12:50:27

“I think the very good point that you made was responsibility. You hear Wayne and the NRA members here talk often about how responsible they are, but they do not want that responsibility made official or legal. And when they see another gun owner kill out of anger or mental distress, they seem to just say, "well, the rest of us are okay, so no laws needed."
Every time that there has been a mass shooting, the same reply comes out, "no laws needed, the rest of us are responsible."
I have to prove responsibility when I drive, by getting a license, getting insurance and registering my car.
Why is there less responsibility assigned to owning a thing that was created with the purpose and intent to do harm?”

“But the US Government is for the people, by the people. When the NSA is doing illegal spying, I don't Snoden treasonous, I consider him a whistle blower and a PATRIOTIC AMERICAN.”

“You really need to understand what the Government was doing. And in doing so at least 6 terrorist plots were stopped.

Unless you are contacting a certain known terrorist your number is lost in mass data.

Even once you have contacted that suspect the gov. has to get court order to listen to a call and even then they can only listen is they hear certain target words.

If they do not, they can't listen for 60 seconds and have to come back and try to catch a word then, over and over.

Remember in America the criminal has more rights than the just.”

“I agree with Snowden. He badly embarrassed the USofA's spy agencies and the spy agencies are pi**ed. Keep it up the leaks Snowden. So far I have yet to see anybody whose life is in danger because of Snowden's leaks, except the White House outing the head spy in Afghanistan last week. And Obama is looking bad because the his boycott of the winter Olympics and the crises in Ukraine (which has been as badly handled as the 1960's Cuban crises.

Time for Snowden to get the Noble Peace prize.”

“I think non-violent felons who have just been released should be able to purchase a firearm. For those who have committed a violent felony, that's probably not a good idea immediately upon release. They should stay clean on the outside for 15-20 years and then maybe they can purchase a firearm.”

“Nicely said. This passed here Colorado and everybody who voted against it, is trying to throw the biggest wrench into the legislation that they can. For instance the Denver City council is against it, but the citizens are so vocal that the council is trying to throw road block in front of it. The citizens keep pushing them to open everything up. Their latest is smoking at public events like the Denver Symphony--Marijuana and Mozart! The council will eventually back down because the citizens will bitch very loudly.”
