    When guns are outlawed who is going to protect little wimpys like yourself from the evil people? Remember when seconds count, the police are just minutes away; provided you can make the phone call.

    This rates right down there with the New York Newspaper printing the names and addresses of LEGAL gun owners and then hiring armed guards to protect their employees. Hypocrite much?

    @martydotcom as opposed to....

    Armed psychos with unfettered access to illegal weapons capable of firing 900 rds a min. I'd call management realistically ignorant not intelligent.

    If your willing to break the first law why would the second stop someone.

    @WilliamWallace w hat law are you referring to?? The newspaper broke no law,
    question. If a gun fires 900 rounds per minute and it has a clip size of 30, how long will it take to empty the clip?
  • #83
    @martydotcom. I guess I overestimated your intelligence. We were discussing gun control and my comment is based on the fact that if you are willing to break a law and commit murder why would a gun control law stop you.

    From experience the last casing ejects from the chamber before the first one hits the ground.

    This doesn't rate anywhere with the comparison you are making. People are entitled to know how their particular Congressman or Senator stands on certain issues. If they don't like it, don't run for office. Simple solution.
    I didn't support what the NY Times did, I do support this.

    That's the same video you already posted
    Even so, In every single school shooting case it was a negligent parent allowing his/her immature, under age child access to guns and ammo. If the parent had left a sharp knife on the coffee table with an unsupervised toddler, that parent could be prosecuted.

    @hwyangel do you just cut and paste that response? You blame negligent parents all too often excusing the psychopath with unfettered access to guns

    James Eagan Holmes is the suspected perpetrator of a mass shooting that occurred on July 20, 2012 at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Holmes allegedly set off several gas or smoke canisters and then opened fire on the theater audience, killing 12 and wounding 58. Holmes was described by his work supervisor as stubborn, uncommunicative and socially inept. Some of Holmes' acquaintances suspected prior to the shooting that Holmes suffered from mental illness and could be dangerous. Two weeks before the shooting, he sent a text message asking a graduate student if they had heard of the disorder dysphoric mania, and warning the student to stay away from him "because I am bad news

    England and Australia have experienced a four fold rise in crime after outlawing guns. However the purpose of the Second Amendment is to allow the people to overthrow a tyrannic government if necessary. The fact is the president and the Democrats want the people disarmed so they have nothing to fear from the people as they eliminate our freedoms. They are not interested in "gun safety".
  • #95
    When has the second amendement ever stopped the overthrow of a tyrannical US gov't?
    Why didn't the armed people prevent the US from rounding up the asians in the 40's? isn't that what the armed militia is ther for? Seems those guns never really do what it is you say they are there to do, they just end up being used agianst fellow citizens...

    A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
    What does this statement actually mean?
    The word Militia means "We the people" the Citizens of the United States of America.
    Necessary? Meaning that our guns are truly necessary in order to be a free country, with liberty and freedoms, From a dictatorship.
    Keep and Bear Arms? To have guns in our houses and business's and to be able to carry them for our safety and security.
    Shall not be infringed? Meaning "Laws can not be passed to infringe upon our rights to keep and bear arms" Period
  • #31
    Seems you forgot that "well regulated" bit when declaring "Laws can not be passed..." There's room for "well regulated" gun ownership.

    As for techies having a liberal bent? Well, the successful ones seem to. The most prominent GOP tech types in recent memory were the folks behind ORCA, the Romney campaign's web app that was supposed to help count votes on Election Day but crashed early and hard.

    Do you really want the only ones with guns to be the police, army and criminals? The criminals are going to get their guns no matter what legislation is passed. I personally want for law abiding citizens to be able to protect themselves. As for assault rifles, a little trip south of the border and assault rifles and large magazines are going to stay on the black market. No stopping it. A few may get caught, but think of the hundreds that do not. The legislation would just make things harder for law abiding citizens, not criminals.

    At this point it is merely more gov't dividing the people, that and trying to get a handle (estimate) on who all the gun owners are, so that, and believe me this is the could be the plan, the UN forces can come in and go door to door collecting our guns.
    Now I can't remember what the document was or is called, but I remember that before the election the US was preparing to sign some UN trash outlawing gun ownership by private citizens. This Document would trump our constitution, so I understood. It would also allow for your arrest for having a gun in any country that had signed the document.
    So really I am without a lot of facts about it, but I am putting it out there so that anyone who knows or finds out anything can let us all know.
    All I know is I heard about this document in October and that Hillary was going over to sign it, but then I never heard another word, I figure it was because it would have been political suicide for Obama, but in light of all this anti-gun trash lately, which now seems like a prelude to the UN deal, maybe there is some truth to it, idk, but I sure don't trust my country anymore.

    Like i said if you want to envision gun control where only the police and the army are the only one who have guns you may want to watch Schindler's List.
  • #51
    Another great idea by the dreamworld liberals. Kinda like listing gun owners names and addresses give criminals the info on who is NOT armed so they can invade thier homes to rob, rape and kill them, this stupid idea gives people the names of who to support if you are a gun rights supporter. And let us not forget the moron (mostly democrat) politicians who want to ban assault weapons just dumped 100's of thousands more of them on the street because of panic buying. If they would just address the REAL causes (yes there are many) of people going nuts instead of blaming guns, peolple would stop buying these $2000.00 rifles and go back to watching football.

    "Kinda like listing gun owners names and addresses give criminals the info on who is NOT armed so they can invade thier homes to rob, rape and kill them,"
    No, its not kinda like it at all. Not even in the remotest bit. Its an App that lets people know their elected officials stance on a certain subject. If you or the elected official don't like it, simply don't take part in the election process. These people's stances should be known. Its a part of their job.
  • #301
    So in your mind an app that enables people to know who their representatives take money from and help them to contact that rep with their opinion and how they want them to vote is socialism and leading to Naziism?
  • #314
    @Cheenoguy When it's targeted at representatives who defend the Constitution of the United States, yes. Get it through your head. I know National Socialism very well... I used to infiltrate hate groups like the Aryan Nations and the National Alliance in the 1990's. I have been an anti-racism activist now for well over 10 years.
  • #315
    Good for you on the anti-racism activism. People should get involved in tearing down hate groups. May I suggest going after Westboro or CBN as your next hate group to target?
    Most people on both sides of the issue are trying to defend the 2nd amendment. You are focused on the "right to bare arms" part while I focus on the "WELL REGULATED militia" part.
    I'm all for you having guns for hunting and/or defense. My biggest passion about gun restriction is clearing up the gun show loophole. That loophole makes it easy for people to get guns who I think we all agree shouldn't have. I have to question the integrity of anyone who wants to keep that loophole open.
    I still think you are misusing the term socialist when you say that it is socialist to make easier to know where our representatives stand on this important issue so that you can contact them to try and change their mind or express your support. Quite frankly I would like to see better apps for showing us what our individual reps have voted for and giving us contact information. This is clearly a tool for furthering democracy.
  • #317
    Clearly you have put no thought into this.
    1) Giving people a tool to be more involved in their government is a win for Democracy. When you are disturbed by American citizens having a voice you are demonstrating a fascist mindset.
    2) Under Obama the 30 year trend of taking from the middle class to give to the ultra-rich has increased. The stock market has went up while wages have went down.(Another 30 year trend.) Hell he just signed a tax bill that didn't raise the taxes for the middle class and is talking about cuts for Medicare and social security. If this man is a socialist he doesn't understand how it is supposed to work.

    "I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
    George Mason
    Co-author of the Second Amendment
    during Virginia's Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788

    "And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; …"
    Samuel Adams
    quoted in the Philadelphia Independent Gazetteer, August 20, 1789, "Propositions submitted to the Convention of this State"

    "Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
    George Washington
    First President of the United States

    "The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution."
    Thomas Jefferson
    Third President of the United States
