"Or does the Obama administration just think a 110 pound woman has a right to fight off a 200 pound rapist with her bare hands?"


She doesn't need a gun to fend off a rapist

That's what pepper spray is for, numskull

Here's a clue: Not every situation you feel threatened by requires you to start shooting - nor do the courts look too kindly on shooting people because you think they're going to rape you.

wonder why women are not more offened by the goverments gun grabbing?

interesting question

I have spoken with my wife and also a couple of her female friends over coffee about this

all of them acted surprised, said they were not aware of ANY actionable Federal legislation that results in "gun grabbing", OR "gun banning"

oddly, women apparently don't react irrationally to something that is highly unlikely

When you're menacingly waving a gun around in public the govt. will take and grab your gun.

You've been owned ..... :-)

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

"I fail to see how the NRA can disregard the overwhelming will of its members who see background checks as reasonable."

How could anyone fail to see it?

It's brutally f*#king simple:

The NRA wants criminals to have guns.

They did the math. More criminals with guns means more gun sales overall.

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

"The epitome of stupid is arming the bad guys."

...and using that as the reason for claiming that you need to be armed.

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.

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.
