Oh, those people on the 'Hill are very smart. They just don't seem that way. It's an alternate reality in DC, where power is exchanged as currency.

Money is great for the newbies, but for the established politician -- power and influence is what really matters. After someone's wealth reaches a certain level, money isn't as important as establishing a dynastic legacy of power.

If you step back and look at Congress and view it as a smash-and-grab shopping spree for money, power, and influence -- you can start to see why these people position themselves the way they do, and manuever their politics the ways that they do.

They don't care about you the voter whom they are supposed to represent, because they'll be booted out of office and sent home if they do. Freshman in Congress learn very quickly that if they don't scratch someone else's back (even if it's questionable or morally reprehensible), they will never accomplish anything.

Just like Walt said in Breaking Bad:

Jessie: "Are we in the money business?"

Walt: "I'm in the empire business"

That's who we elect, people in the "empire business".

Edit to add: There's an old saying that goes, "Truly good people don't get involved in politics".

Think about it, good people that get involved in politics either GTFO or don't stay good for long.

I'd say let them buy whatever they want as long as there's a criminal background check and they've done a safety course. This will not decrease gun violence in and of itself but probably curb the trend. This wouldn't be about taking guns away from people just making sure that the nut job down the street doesn't get their hands on one.
I know in Newfoundland you have to do a gun safety course before you even buy a gun and present it to the RCMP once completed. Then again I don't know too many people there that have AR-15 rifles or handguns for that matter. The only guns I've ever seen have been my fathers, single barrel shotgun and a .303 (both used for hunting purposes), that's it and I've only ever shot one gun (once) in my life.

It's nice that you think it's okay for me to have a gun.

I often wonder what people in Newfoundland think about my inalienable rights. Rights secured by the blood of Americans for Americans.

Your blessing means the world to me.

So happy you think so


Would you rather someone who has a known history of violence and/or medical issues be able to purchase a firearm?

Would you like having that person living next door to you and your family?

I am not saying you don't have the right to protect yourself but at least do something that would reduce the likelihood of those firearms reaching an individual who has this type of history.

We already have to go through a background check to legally buy a gun.

Of course, in ninety percent of gun crimes the gun is illegally obtained. Background checks mean essentially nothing.

Quick question but are background checks mandatory across the US (in every state) and what about safety courses? Plus, you make a good point in regards to illegal guns and their relation to background checks. How do you think they should get rid of them (illegal guns) if possible?

Yup. FBI background checks are required in every state, and safety courses are cheap and readily available. I'd say most people that are first time buyers take one.

My feeling is that you can't stop someone from illegally obtaining a firearm. It's just like drugs. They're illegal, but if you wanna get them, you will find a way.

Did you know that the United States government fully endorsed gun sales to illegal aliens, allowing them to cross the border over to Mexico? How many innocent children were killed with those guns? And they wanna crack down on people that already follow the rules. Does that make sense? Your fellow countryman Michael Moore is wrong. Most gun crimes are committed by people with illegal firearms. It's never going to change. Is Michael Moore Canadian? My appologies if he isn't.

youth doesn't = less intelligent the same as age doesn't always equate to wisdom

liberal/conservative is a veil used to divide you; most have similar agendas with financial backing with from the same general pool

I don't disagree that it is a good thing to have smart youth speaking out with good ideas ... I do disagree with your general toxicity in presentation.

Nice post, just imagine... If the politicians spent time trying to increase firearm safety awareness, instead of outright bans, more lives would be saved.

Training, education, discussion on responsibility (gun ownership or otherwise), is a common sense approach that you won't see taken.


Thanks, I am totally with you on this. But, from the politician's perspective, the only problem with your idea is it that 1. it makes sense, 2. it is cost effective, and 3. it just might work. Common sense doesn't get one elected in this day and age...no matter which way you lean....knee-jerk reactionism is what gets voter support. God forbid people slow down, think something through, seek expert advise and make an informed decision.

The largest threat gun owners face right now (IMHO) is not the person with a serious mental illness murdering a few dozen people on a rampage (those events are relatively quite rare)...it's the hundreds of idiots who abuse the right to own firearms and kill//injure countless people (happens daily), that includes you Dick Cheney, in "accidents." It points to an underlying problem in our society that people fail to be responsible or own up to their own actions.

Just because the average U.S. citizen has a right to own firearms doesn't mean they should....

Sadly she didn't help gun owners with that speech more than likely hurt their case. this girl looks to sweet to be shooting guns the only thing the gun haters they're thinking is that she's one a million and would not matter in her case. besides she sounds like that girl in class who didn't feel like reading but still went up anyway trying to prove a point.

Yes. She does look too sweet to be shooting a gun.

Which undoubtedly would surprise a would be rapist if she had to draw down a Glock on the dude.

Sure does make the criminal element stop to think, "Hey. She sure does look to sweet to have a Glock on her....which means she probably does have a Glock on her."

It isn't a feeling, it is a fact.

You can't even get a prescription for heroin. The poppies that it is made from aren't grown in this country.
BUT,
If you are a 10 year old kid with money in your hand, you can walk two blocks from where I am now and buy some heroin. No ID needed, as they don't care if you have a clean record, are of age or anything else.

How exactly did her speech hurt gun owners case ? She was concise , intelligent and made excellent points .

How and what does her delivery of her speech have to do with anything , instead of a teleprompter that politicians use , she read from a sheet of paper , so who cares ? And trying to prove a point ? I believe she drove that point home very well .

Several people were stabbed Tuesday at a Houston-area college and one person was in custody, local media reported.

The stabbings occurred at the Cy-Fair campus of Lone Star College.

Click2Houston.com, citing paramedics, reported that as many as 14 people were hurt.


You know what that means right?

KNIFE CONTROL!!!

Where the hell is Obama? He should be out on the knife control campaign tour right NOW...that is...if he was intellectually consistent.

Oh, I do separate myself from today's crop of liberals.

I'm a success because my father taught me to be better than everyone else in my school class. My children are successes because I taught them the same lessons. those lessons translated well from school to business life in general.

I suffer absolutely no guilt for felling absolutely good about myself and my children. Life is competitive. The big fish eat the little fish.

The idea of feeling sorry for someone who doesn't put in the effort and expects someone else to take care of them is completely alien to me. Wouldn't have it around me. Never allowed it around my children. And we're all doing much better for taking care of ourselves.

Even Malcolm X said that a man can't take care of others until he has learned to take care of himself first. And even Malcolm X wouldn't brook dealing with the laze whiners of the world.

Yes, knife control.

And is the electric carving knife considered an automatic weapon?

Will the Swiss Army Knife be outlawed as being too mean a looking instrument of mass destruction?

Is the two inch long blade as lethal as the four inch long blade...etcetera?

After ALL the knives are catalogued by the U.S. Senate....at the expense of passing a workable budget.....Harry Reid will get to work banning bows and arrows, axes, sharpening stones and Yo Yos that can be used as ersatz nunchucks.

The world will be made completely spotless as the original Garden of Eden. Nobody in the senate will pass a workable budget. Because they're all too busy making political points about saving lives. Why they want to save lives when they don't need human voters anymore, is beyond me? Just make it a law that nobody can shoot or do any harm to the electronic voting machines that elect these senators.

They preach keeping religion out of politics....but whatever this moral enigma these senators are pushing is, it deserves a tax break for being a religion all of its own.

Meanwhile, Colt is moving some of its manufacturing to Texas, I hear. The competition Colt section.

I never compared the young girl's intelligence to Harry Reid and the Feinstein Sisters.

I said her intelligence was far above that of Harry Reid and the Sisters.

"The war on guns will work about as much as the war on drugs .... it wont "


that program was designed to fail. they didnt bring drugs into the schools to teach kids what not to do, they want young kids to be able to identify it and then when old enough will know what drugs they want to use, without d.a.r.e half of americas kids wouldnt know about half the drugs out there. d.a.r.e was advertisement for drug dealers, excuse me i mean cia operatives ^^
