The epitome of stupid is disarming good guys when bad guys are killing.

The epitome of stupid is thinking stricter regulations on gun sales is "disarming good guys." If you are a "good guy" you would be mildly inconvenienced at most.

If you feel you need a gun in order to not be a victim but can't because the evil tyrannical government has taken them all away, try NOT walking like a pussy instead!

oh come on


the NRA's "Board of Directors" is absolutely loaded with both weapon and ammo sales people

their very lives depend on making as much profit on selling guns and ammo as they can

they profit enormously when fools rush out and buy Bushmasters after every shooting

they target women by having assault weapons with PINK trim

they WANT the NRA to be their lobbying arm

just like cigarette makers do everything they can to market to children for future sales

I fail to see how the NRA can disregard the overwhelming will of its members

Surely you jest? The NRA is the lobbying arm of the firearms manufacturing industry, not a member-driven organization.

They don't give a flying f*#k what the individual sheep who buy into their scare mongering and ante up for a "membership" think. Never have, never will. They are in the business of protecting the interests of S&W, Ruger, etc.

Hey why doesn't the 2nd Amendment allow me to carry fire arms onto a plane?

Laurie Anderson has some great lines on one of her songs that goes something like; "to be really safe you should always carry a bomb on a plane". "because the chance of there being a bomb on board are pretty small but the chance of there being two bombs on a plane are astronomical".

Why would you want to? WTF would you do with a gun on an airplane?


So I could be "safe".
Well they want me to carry them for safety in schools, theaters, churches and everywhere else. Isn't denying me the right to carry on an airplane violating my hallowed 2nd Amendment rights? What if there was a "bad guy" with a gun on board? Isn't a "good guy" with a gun the only way to stop a "bad guy" with a gun?

Ah I see, death toll is of no importance just don't hurt the aerioplane.
Maybe we should hold public school classes on airplanes.

the (il)logic of liberal thinking:

barry claims "90% of americans" supported the failed gun bill

barry also claims the senators who voted against him...er...the bill are cowardly and caved to the "gun lobby" to ensure their re-election

(of course, one might reasonably wonder why barry didn't push for gun control when dems controlled the house and had a filibuster-proof majority in the senate, but i digress)

but, but, but...if "90% of americans" supported the bill, wasn't voting against it the COURAGEOUS thing to do? wasn't voting against the bill and, by barry's stats, against the constituents, a vote of conviction and proof that re-election was not their concern?

in what way is it "cowardly" to vote FOR something that "90% of americans" (i.e. 90% of voters) support?


maybe barry was lying...er...mistaken about that 90% stat:

telling graphic you posted, Philo

and as much as anything, it shows the gross disproportionate voting influence of each state regardless of population having exactly two Senators

maybe two Senators from each of the original 13 states seemed like a good idea over two hundred years ago

but as is said, things have changed

California has 35 million people and two Senators

New Mexico where I live has two million people and two Senators


of course, the entire Senate vote was quite irrelevant wasn't it?

considering that the bill was dead on arrival in the Republican House
