AR-15s were designed for soldiers?

Gawd criminals do not follow the law!

You can not legislate behavior.

Automatic weapons are fully legal as class 3 firearms!

Geez neither one has got a clue.

I find it kind of funny that no Romney supporters are talking about the Libya question/answer.

I'll take that as a HUGE score for Obama.

What are the stats on "automatic" weapons being used in crimes?

Obama is full of it.

WOW, open applause from the audience after Romney just got called out on his lies.

And Romney continues to stutter and try to politicize this.


I didn't think Obama could win on Libya, I really didn't, but he just did.



Were you equally pleased the way the Administration handled the assassination of a US diplomat in the immediate days after?

Do you find pride in their attempt to blame a video? Do you find comfort that the Secretary of State finally took the blame for the lack of security of our Ambassador?

Like I said earlier.. Obama is in a no win situation in regards to Benghazi..

Oh, Romney bringing up Fast and Furious...

Let's see where this goes...

Nowhere, apparently. He threw it out there, at least. I'd like to hear some answers from Obama on that one, though.

so did Obama just say he wants to try to get automatic weapons out of the hands of Americans? most americans that have full auto don't go out and shoot up places and the statistics back up that statement,and he finally stated that he wants to try to get a new assault weapons ban passed if possible.....after pulling off fast and furious this may hurt him

Let's see that flip flop dance Romney.

The three types of weapons used by the man accused of killing 12 people in a Colorado movie theater — a semiautomatic variation of the military’s M-16 rifle, a pump-action 12-gauge shotgun and at least one .40-caliber semiautomatic pistol — are among the most popular guns available in the multibillion-dollar American firearms market.

Romney started well with the family argument, and killed it with 'Fast and Furious'.

I figured more people on these websites would know better than to argue over these two candidates. You all do realize these elections are staged, right? This country is in the crapper and they picked the one person who could lose to Obama because he doesn't have a plan. Sound familiar? Think John Kerry in 2004.

Ask yourself this: Would Ron Paul have a set plan to present to the public if he faced off against Obama? You knowx the Ron Paul who had votes "come up missing." The Ron Paul who didn't get a seat at the RNC because they changed the rules at the last second. The guy TPTB want to drive the country into the ground is the one who will win. If there is any doubt, they'll just do a recount. Wake up people! You're being duped!

No Vote 2012

You have to have a license to own a automatic weapon. But to the general public it is illegal to own one.

Yeah, no "assault weapons" in that mix, and no Automatics.

Thanks

No, he didn't say that at all. He said out the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.

Obama care. What is it exactly?? I'm not so sure why everyone hates it so much. Is it because you feel it's a socialist idea where the government handles the health care?

Up here in Canada medical care is free unless you want to go to a private doctor. You pay your taxes just as normal and voila, you have a health card. Break your finger, catch a cold, get something in your eye, head on in to a walk-in-clinic, present your card and presto, your treated. No bills, no invoices, do debt. I don't need to have insurance in my country. My country takes care of me.

Isn't that what Obama care is? Or am I way off the mark?

Oh, and I just want to add that free medical care was brought in by the NDP which is considered more socialist than other party in Canada. Best move that has ever been done.


edit on 16-10-2012 by FlySolo because: (no reason given)

Well.... That's exactly what I wanted it to be, just like the health care my family got while my Dad was serving in the military.

It ended up being watered down during the political process, so now, although I think it is still better than what we had before, there are some things definitely lacking. There is still no Public option. There is still no competition between insurance companies across state lines. Without interstate competition, we are still stuck in a sort of mini monopoly, where each state's health insurance options are controlled by a couple of huge companies, unchecked by the free enterprise system.

BUT - neither of those faults that I have with it were brought about by Obama or Democrats - both were concessions that the Democrats made to the Republicans, in trying to pass the overall Healthcare Reform Act.

I can't imagine why, since Republicans generally advocate the free market system.
