America is literally Egypt/Iraq/Syria and about to devolve into sectarian violence as soon as our oppressive dictator is overthrown and it is not ironic at all that statistically the fact that you own a gun actually makes it MORE likely that you'll be killed by one.

(I have no problem with gun ownership, just people who think it's the only thing "protecting their rights.")

I wonder what all you anti-gunners think of Ahmed Ozalp.

just like you,they never even heard of him

but more importantly, is your definition of an "anti gunner" someone who supports the extreme idea of thinking that convicted felons ought to be background checked BEFORE buying an AK at a gun show?

THAT was the attempt of the Federal Legislation after the eight year olds were murdered, Ron

are YOU an "anti gunner" also Ron, because you don't have a problem with background checks?

or are you just confused about what you believe, but just irrationally and emotionally oppose any damn attempt to lessen the likely hood of future slaughters?

Yeah hedge I guess you are right. It was crazy to compare our peaceful and civilized corner of the world to Egypt. Here we would never have major cities go bankrupt leaving citizens to rely on cops who only respond to major crimes (taking 58 minutes to do so). And we always have the federal government to back up the cops. They would never be so fiscally irresponsible.

pfffft, silly me.

I was in awe at the Egyptian protests... If only the sheeple that remain in this failed country could muster the same resolve and get off their asses...

Could you imagine in any major American city what would happen if 10+ million people showed up to protest this failed regime?

But alas, they have not run out of Bread nor Circus yet. Soon perhaps.

Not till the EBT cards quit working.

By TGT's logic didn't Republicans blow up the World Trade Center and Democrats build the Freedom Tower? Goes to show what kind of conclusions you will draw when you are only capable of making sense of macro images.

Why do your Republicans keep on voting to fund food stamps, WELFARE, TGT?

Your Repubs have complete control of the House for three years now, the FUNDING branch

And they keep voting for FOOD STAMPS and WELFARE

that HAS to piss you off

"My" candidate?

Hey dumbazz, I'm a Libertarian (oh, sorry, I forgot that you have that reading comprehension handicap.)

Hey Toker,

wasn't Gary Johnson the Libertarian candidate last year?

He was my state of New Mexico's governor some years ago.
You are a Libertarian you say?

I assume you voted for Johnson?

Libertarian is just code for someone who hasn't suffered the injustice of having a non-government entity oppress them and therefore thinks everything should stay exactly how it is.

A true Libertarian, like both Ron and Randy Paul, would never have voted for the Civil Rights Act

that's right, think about it

when asked if they would have voted to end discrimination with the CRA, they both said NO

when asked if it was ok with them that all motels and restaurants in the USA could refuse to allow blacks to come in the door, they said fine, ok with them

and THAT is the ignorant, f*#king, racist horror of "Libertarians"

oh, it sounds good, like "liberty"

but once you actually fuking know what they don't stand for, it ought to make you puke

Nice to see that Norton has appointed himself arbiter of what I would or would not vote for.
After all there is never any vacillation from the party line!

This is a great take by John Stewart of the Daily Show.

The video on this page is an EXCELLENT listen for BOTH SIEDES of the argument about carrying a weapon.

Please listen to the whole thing especially if you do or are considering carrying a firearm:
