xscribe- That's too much TV talking brother. Banks are not robbed on a
daily basis, look it up, it's relatively rare. And I have NEVER seen an
armed guard in my bank. Here in Utah or in Michigan where I used to live. Not
saying they don't exsist, just saying that it has very little to do with
what we are talking about here.
I have a little different point of view on Obama's proposals. Even though
I'm a conservative, for the most part I don't have a problem with
assault weapons bans and universal background checks...I think the background
checks especially shut loopholes that really need to be closed.My
problem with Obama's plan is that, quite literally, it will do next to
nothing to stop gun violence in America. It MIGHT give a few extra seconds in
one of those super-rare Sandy Hook type shootings. But the overwhelming
majority of gun violence is with handguns. What are we going to do about
that?Ann Coulter (not my favorite conservative) had an excellent
point recently: take away inner-city gang violence and minority crime, and
you'd have an American gun violence rate comparable to Belgium.
That's not racism (I can see the knees jerking already) - that's just
cold, hard reality. What are we going to do about that? The real answer to
getting that much-envied European violence rate is to address problems
there...taking away guns from law-abiding citizens will do nothing to reduce our
gun violence rate, and arguably increase it.
Sigfried: And yet, banks are robbed on a daily basis. Could have sworn I have
seen armed guards there!
the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference.I think its EXACTLY the same today. That coward would never have gone where
he thought there would be opposition.
Talking to the dead, these days, Mohokat. Paranoid and talking to the dead:
That just might get you an FBI file!
@xscribe I have George Washington's phone number. I will get it to you.
You can call him and he can explain it to you. Different, Different, Different.
Would that also apply to the rest of the Constitution? Liberals like to make it
up as they see fit. We can expect exactly that from King Brack watch closely.
Multiplying rights for illegals, gays, and free-loaders.Decreasing
rights through insurance mandates and freedom through gun control for everyday
Americans.Hope and Change has come to America. Take a good whif...
Mohokat: "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 … George Washington"Let me know when that actually happens, the whole peace and security
issue. Different times; different circumstances; different issues; different
WorfIt's called vetting, and you can be assured that it is more
thorough and exhaustive than you could imagine, especially at the presidential
level. Make no mistake Mitt looked long at hard at anything he could hang on
Do our leaders have back ground checks?
Mentally ill men shoot people, so Obama's response is to restrict the
number of guns, gun parts, and ammo.That makes as much sense as
addressing a spending problem by increasing taxes.
I don't think there is any "Make Obama King" caucus in Congress,
and find mo's accusation TOTALLY factless and unfounded. Just as a
reminder, all the talk of the "unitary executive" (a bit like elected
royalty) took place during the GWB administration.
What do background universal back ground checks and limiting the size of
magazines have to do with gun control?
Quite a difference between our first President a true Patriot and a man who
could have been King but rebuked the idea and did not want to become King and
our existing President(the words make me gag) who would love to and do anything
he could to become King."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
WashingtonFirst President of the United States
He should concede spending limits.We lose more children through
abortions then guns.
