“Well, it is only fair..decorum and all that. After all, we can't have lowly citizens being disrespectful in such a dignified setting. That is a privilege reserved for Republicans who decide to yell "LIAR!" at the POTUS during a state of the union address.”

“So your solution is to arm all the bad guys, arm all the good guys and just let them shoot it out..whomever is left standing wins? I think we tried that once. It was called the Wild West. Was kind of hoping our society had progressed beyond that. I guess it never will for many Americans. By the way, since you are so enamored of the Second Amendment, which "regulated militia" are you and your gun loving friends part of? Or do you just stop reading when you have read just enough to se what you already believe. And I always wonder how many other amendments you Second Amendment scholars are familiar with.”

“Here we go with the "regulated militia thing again". You pay any attention to the supreme court ruling regarding that issue?? Didn't think so.”

“Wait just one minute. I am so tired of hearing this nonsense about the "existing rules" already in place and how all we need to do is "enforce them". The right has caused the Director of the ATF to be relegated to a part time position, held by a mayor who checks in maybe twice a year. They included language in the Patriot Act that allows gun shop owners the right to basically tell the FBI to bug off when it comes to any records of gun purchases, any sort of gun registry.

And you must be a Republican, since the "compromise" you say you would be willing to accept..very big of you, by the way...is the typical right wing idea of compromise...you get everything you want and the rest of us get whatever you choose to "give" us.”

TheDark on Apr 17, 2013 at 23:29:56

“Not a republican. But what good would the full registry of guns do?  I understand that isn't the case here, but...seriously.  If we have full registration and background checks, why not let people buy real assault weapons.”

“I am constantly amazed by the ridiculous, circular logic of gun-loving Americans. Jonathan Papelbon, the "closer" for The Philadelphia Phillies, said in a televised interview yesterday that he was uncomfortable walking through the crowd during a home game promotion because he was afraid of being shot. In the next breath, he said, "And Obama wants to take away our guns..I don't get it". No, you don't, Jonathan. How do you argue or reason with people like that?”

“The facts is, violent video games also exist in more countries than just the USA, and none of those countries have the incredible amount of shooting deaths as do we. But then again, none of those countries have the proliferation of guns and the obsession with them that we have here. The NRA would have no problem with any violent video games or movies if their research showed that these games and movies encourage people to BUY more guns.

The NRA is funded primarily by gun manufacturers, not member dues. And Lapierre draws his fat one million a year form those same people. No conscience, no morals...just business to him.”

“First, Romney admits he won't talk about his policies because if he did, "people might not elect him". Now, it's "just elect us and we'll tell you all about our "plan" for the economy once we are safely in office". And the sad truth is these guys have at least a 50/50 chance at pulling this off and making us the government of the rich, by the rich, for the rich. Two multi-millionaires running for office so they can make themselves and their corporate masters even richer by tearing down all the safety nets that exist to protect the middle class and poor. Repubs have been trying to find a way to destroy the New Deal since its creation and may finally have found the way to do so, thanks to Fox News and the rest of the right wing echo chamber.”

“And not one of those 3 million people is a member of the Supreme Court, a family member of anyone on the SCOTUS or a friend of any of them.

Must be nice to make the "tough decisions" when you know they will never affect you or anyone you know.”
