    In both cases, it is not the gun manufacturer or the NRA’s fault; it’s the government’s failure to enact policies with sound logic, instead of shooting from the hip (pun intended) that more gun control is needed: People on terror watchlists and with certain mental health issues should be flagged for further investigation or denied access. WHY HASN’T THAT LIST BEEN COMPILED in a national database that becomes part of the standard background check?

      You do know that the Orlando shooter was not on any such list. Quite the contrary, he was a certified security guard most likely granting him even easier access to guns than your average citizen. The problem with him is that the left passed rules to law enforcement entities putting time limits on investigations. They reached points where they had to prosecute or drop all investigations and not having enough evidence to prosecute, they dropped investigations. Perhaps we should allow investigations to proceed longer for terrorism suspects. As long as we can trust law enforcement departments not to do what the IRS did in targeting opponents of the party currently occupying the White House instead of justifiable suspects.

        Untrue, the only time limit is after an arrest. They have a certain amount of time to charge the person or let them go. They can investigate anything for as long as they want to.

          The FBI opened what is known as a preliminary investigation — one of hundreds that the bureau handles at any one time and that typically last six months. Comey said the investigation was extended once with the approval of an FBI supervisor at the Joint Terrorism Task Force in Miami.

            You cite an article that states he was investigated 3 times.

            How does this relate to your above statement that the left passed rules to law enforcement entities putting time limits on investigations.

            You’re right, they typically are 6 months, but in three investigations they did not find anything and continue to assert that he had no internal ties to ISIL. You’re making assumptions that are not backed.

        That is precisely my point – how could he have been investigated and those investigations dropped? Were they too stupid to see it through or are these fanatics smarter than our systems?

        Anyone ever legitimately investigated (as in his case) for terrorism and certain discoveries made should not only not be able to obtain a new firearm, but should have those already registered confiscated.

        More liberal groups were investigated than conservative groups,and the conservative groups were largely anti-tax groups, which are the exact groups that should be investigated.

          Actu:

          “In a letter to congressional Democrats, the inspector general also said that 100 percent of Tea Party groups seeking special tax status were put under IRS review, while only 30 percent of the progressive groups felt the same pressure.”

          You mentioned that they were the exact same companies that should be reviewed. Well, 100% of them were, but like for like companies only had 30% review from liberal companies.

          Hmmm…

          Also, is this you being a hypocrite regarding Muslims? Well, more terror is done from Islam and more terrorist groups exist from Islam than any other group.

          These are exactly the groups we should be investigating, and considering for actions to prevent terror are they not?

          You just say whatever befits your liberal agenda.

            Actually Bob, I’m not being a hypocrite. The Tea Party was an anti-tax organization so obviously they should be more scrutinized when applying for tax exemptions. I have no problem investigating Muslim terror groups. What you are actually getting at is investigating all Muslims, which I’m not in favor of because it doesn’t work, and unlike you I’m not a bigot. Because you are about as likely to be killed by a right wing terrorist in the US since 9-11 you must agree we should crack siren on all right wingers, right? By your own logic it would be hypocritical not to.

            Oh really now? Limiting Muslim Terrorist group searches to Muslims doesn’t work? How many non Muslims are in Muslim Terrorist groups?

            There is a link, and it is not bigoted. You are wrong on the former, and bigotry requires more than simply stating demographics exist.

            Is it bigoted to say that more black folks are engaged in crime in Chicago?

            No. It’s not. It is a literal fact.

            I am not bigoted, and fuck you for saying it.

            Moving on to your other links:

            Our link already directed this. 30% of liberal associations applying for a special tax status were inspected, ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of conservative ones were. It is not a conspiracy theory. Your links are an aggregate in the first point.

            So on one end you said that conservative companies are more likely to be those types of groups.

            100% of those groups were targeted. Your list here, is not broken out into those groups.

            For all you know, there are simply less tea party groups. So taking the number of total doesn’t work, even when comparing what wording they used for targeting. You need to compare the amount of firms who have a special status that were actually audited. Yours does not go over that. It goes over how many groups are tea party or progressive and were targeted for screening based on progressive or conservative naming etc.

            The second link is from the first, how did you not notice that? Or maybe you did and just thought I wouldn’t see the .jpg? I’m thinking it is the first and you thought you had two links, and you didn’t read them.

            Now, why this doesn’t matter:

            100% of tea party groups that applied for a special status were targeted. 30% of liberal ones that applies were. That is equal to equal parameters.

            You’re wrong here. That’s all there is to it.

            So your link says there are say 15 liberal groups that have naming schemes that include “blue”

            And there are say 12 that have naming schemes that include “red”.

            Did you read your link? So these groups could be targeted based on that basis.

            However, how many total progressive firms are there? How many total conservative?

            How many ultimately that applied out of the total of both those groups, were audited? How many even applied for a special tax status? In the total of your number it doesn’t say. It just says of total liberal companies vs total conservative.

            The total in the case of the liberal for who applied for a special status was 30% the total in the case of the conservative was 100%.

            So every single one that applied from your list, was audited. Whereas only 30% were audited in the liberal case.

      That hasn’t happened because “government” can’t enact sound policy due to the Republicans blocking any laws infringing on the right to gun ownership the Supreme Court enacted fairly recently. Supporting gun regulations is a career ender for most Republicans largely thanks to the NRA.

        Hey Actu –

        If gun control was so important to the Democrats, why didn’t they do something when they controlled all three branches of the govt when Obama was first elected.

        They shoved Obamacare down our throats. Why not gun control?

        Because they are hypocrites, that’s why.

        Illinois, Obama’s home state when he was a senator, has some of the toughest gun control laws on the books. How’s that working for them?

        Obama needs to start enforcing laws before he wants to put more controls in.

        Republicans don’t favor inefficient gun laws, not sound gun law control.

        For example limits on clips or bullets. If I’m someone who hunts for my food, and I suck with a bow, it’s going to be pretty hard to hit a Deer with one clip of 10 bullets. I guess I can’t hunt anymore now, because I’m a danger to society by owning more bullets.

        Republicans didn’t support that.

        You might want to inform Republicans who have passed gun law changes that they don’t do that. The NRA doesn’t like it, but the NRA does not lead the republicans.

        https://www.nraila.org/articles/20150617/north-carolina-house-votes-to-remove-important-right-to-carry-provision-from-pro-gun-bill

        This is the NRA trying to say a republican is bad, of course, but the republican still went for what he thought were common sense reforms.

        Just because they don’t support Obama’s doesn’t mean they don’t support common sense.

          As for your stupid NRA link, they only opposed it because it would allow states in places that want background checks and tougher regulations to make it more difficult to get guns, not because it’s smart, reasonable etc.

    GoldC, you asked, “WHY HASN’T THAT LIST BEEN COMPILED in a national database that becomes part of the standard background check?”

    Ask a senate Republican.

    “The dynamics of the gun debate have changed little in Congress in recent years, despite high-profile shootings in places like Charleston, S.C.; Newtown, Conn.; and San Bernardino, Calif. Most Republicans and a handful of Democrats, mindful of public support for gun rights and well financed by the National Rifle Association, have largely balked at attempts to close loopholes in background check laws and to prevent those accused of domestic abuse and those on terrorism watch lists from getting firearms. Republicans, arguing that the list of people affected would be too broad and that the measure would not offer proper due process, have put forward a competing one. That bill would require the government to delay, during a 72-hour review period, the purchase of a gun by anyone who is a terrorism suspect or has been the subject of a terrorism investigation within the last five years. Both measures are expected to fail.” – NY Times

        Dave, the security agencies are still not sharing info with one another. You can have someone suspected of Terrorism activities on the watch list and Homeland Security might not have the info. By the way, the Orlando shooter was indirectly working for Homeland Security and they didn’t even know it. The only thing a liberal knows is to try to take the guns away from law abiding citizens. I saw where the gays are now wanting to get guns to protect themselves.

        The problem with putting people on “lists” without due process (and actually preventing them from buying guns) is that the gov’t controls who goes on the list.

        In a perfect world, we could trust the govt to only put people on that deserve to be there (assuming they could actually make that decision accurately 100% of the time). Unfortunately, we cannot trust the govt because it would be very easy to “make up” lists with names that the govt has a problem with (aka..witch hunts). God forbid we get to the point of a completely tyrannical govt, because they could add everyone’s name to the list and we would not be able to protect ourselves from the govt (which is the REAL purpose behind the 2nd Amendment).

        He picked it because he suffered from mental problems due to being a closeted homosexual, and believing in crazy religious views that said his natural feelings were sins.

            Are you the one with the intimate knowledge about him being gay? If not, shut up because you are only repeating what you are hearing and summarizing and opining, too.

            So what, if he was gay, too. Does it dismiss the fact that he was Muslim and pledged allegiance to ISIS. So what that he claimed to belong to conflicting groups. Did he support certain aspects of both groups and didn’t give a rat’s tail about their differences? Did he even know they had differences? Nobody knows because he was a fricking nutjob.

            FACTS: He was a Muslim, he hated gays, he wanted to be a terrorist.

            You liberals are trying to spin that his gay psyche got the better of him and that he was only claiming to be a terrorist. No one knows what was going on in this guys head. The majority of the evidence that we know, point that he was a radical Islamic terrorist that hated gays (whether he was one or not).

            I’m not dismissing the facts. My opinion is weighted based on what the terrorist said. Your opinion is based upon what others who knew the terrorist and what they are saying/speculating about why he did it.

            Has anyone of those intimate acquaintances said that the terrorist TOLD them he was going to kill the gays because he was a closet gay? I don’t think so. Even if they claimed he did, it would possibly be considered hearsay in a court of law.

            Apparently, you just want to dismiss what the guy actually said, on the 911 tapes and in front of the victims. You might want to look in the mirror when you say the word clueless.

          Just curious…what makes agent a Neanderthal for that comment? If the shooter wanted to target gays, wouldn’t a gay club be the softest target?

          If not, what do you think it would be?

            Point taken, Integrity; however, gay people were not his target, nor who he claims he was acting against or on behalf of in his 911 calls. Those who have read Agent’s comments for any length of time would suspect it was his homophobia showing. I don’t believe that I’m wrong, but if that was not Agent’s intent, I stand corrected.

        You think maybe it’s possible that the Orlando shooter didn’t kill everyone because he was a Muslim terrorist, but because he himself was gay and couldn’t handle it because his father wouldn’t accept him? I guess either way it gives you an excuse to hate Muslims (or gays, for that matter), right?

          No. I don’t accept justification of violence. I don’t buy that for one second, and I frankly find it insulting.

          No one is accepted in high school. When it isn’t gay behavior it is something else. In our generation, it is clear that gay people receive more protection and less bullying than any bullied class in high school. I dealt with having my head hit into a brick wall, people calling me a certain nick name I won’t say here, and being called many names. If I shot up a club, it would be my choice not hate against gays that caused it.

          Now on the Muslim religion, that religion actually does support killing of your enemies in present day. The only way to say it doesn’t, is to claim not all Muslims agree with their own faith. Some passages say mercy, but there are others that quite clearly say to kill non-believers, unless they convert, and considering being gay is an offense…This is why it is ok to murder gays in many Islamic nations. This is not coincidence. It is the Muslim religion, and those that agree with it condone it. That’s the end of it. When you go to a Muslim and you show them the passage and they say “well I don’t believe that” then they aren’t a Muslim, or they are indoctrinated enough to ignore it, which means they are a fanatic. Muslims do have serious issues and it is time to start identifying that fact.

          Also,

          Obama seems ok with Christian Terrorist, not radical Christian Terrorist, so he does seem to have some buddying ideals with the Muslim faith and double standards.

          http://nationalreport.net/obama-refers-colorado-shooter-christian-terrorist-press-briefing/

          We shouldn’t insult an entire religion based on the actions of one person after all, should we?

          This is why I believe in God. The BLIP I mentioned. Obama is not dumb. But BLIP, he is suddenly ok with Christian terrorism but not calling Muslim terrorism Muslim terrorism, or even radical Muslim Terrorism. And when he does that, he says it is in order to ensure we don’t get on a high horse. Maybe that is the idea of telling Muslims, hey, your religion has some screwed up stuff in it if you aren’t careful?

          Maybe.

            A weapon designed to kill a large number of people is a full automatic weapon with a large clip. More commonly known as a machine gun. Which anybody who knows anything about guns knows are illegal to ordinary citizens. Those are the weapons designed for war.

    When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. Or in this case, over 3 hours away. The fact that politicians, mainly Democrats, would try to pin this on the NRA is deplorable.

    Could this have turned out any worse if legal carry was permitted by patrons who had a chance to defend themselves? Liberals soil themselves with the concept of freedom, but I guarantee a patron would have wished at least one person had a gun so during those long telephone conversations someone could have gone up to this guy and finished him off.

            Guns are designed to shoot bullets. People decide if they want to use them for war, defense, sport or recreation. Provide examples when a gun killed a person without human intervention.

            Regarding the protection for cars, the reason why car mfgrs don’t have protection is because the car can harm someone if it was not made correctly (i.e. airbags, gas tank design). I am not certain, but I believe gun mfgrs can be sued if the gun was not made properly and it malfunctions and harms someone.

            FYI car mfgrs cannot be sued because someone driving it while impaired kills others, unless there is an alleged defect in the car.

            Question…are knives designed for killing? How do they compare to guns? I guess we ought to make you have a background check the next time you buy a butcher knife.

          I read the fact check article, and yes, there was ONE armed security guard/cop that had a gun. He apparently came running when he heard gun fire and engaged with the assailant. It sounds like he only had his service weapon and knew he could not match the fire power.

          If you read the transcript, Trump said “But if you had guns in that room, if you had — even if you had a number of people having them strapped to their ankle or strapped to their waist, where bullets could have flown in the other direction right at him, you wouldn’t have had the same kind of a tragedy.”…meaning if there were others in the nightclub that where armed, it may have been a different story.

          Also, the cop is also trained to be concerned about innocent victims. The assailant did not care who was shot.

          I can’t say for certain, but if the attack occurred in a Texas nightclub, the outcome might have been different.

            someone walks into a bar with a gun & claims to be a designated driver so they get to come in with their gun.

            now say they order a drink. what happens to the gun? does the bartender take it away? what if it’s a concealed weapon and the bartender doesn’t know?

            so say the bartender has their gun because they’re drinking. oh wait. they just bought the drink for someone else – do they get their gun back? what if their friend lets them have some of their drink? do they lose the gun again?

            say the place took their gun because they decided to drink. how exactly do you plan on giving them their gun back? do they have to come back when they’re sober? is there a coat-check ticket they have to use to get their gun? what if they lose it? where are all these guns being stored during the night anyway?

            And there lies the conundrum that we face every day.

            Democrat/liberals want to penalize all people, including responsible ones, and forbid us to protect ourselves with gun free zones. This creates a bigger target because the irresponsible criminals know they can go to these places and not be challenged.

            Responsible people wanting to protect themselves will more often than not, even while having a few drinks at a night club, be responsible with their firearm.

            Yes, there will be some idiots that won’t be responsible, but they are likely to find a way to be an idiot anyway.

            I would actually feel safer walking into a night club that publicized guns were allowed and knowing that a portion of the population might have guns on them, than one that states it is a gun free zone. (FYI…I don’t own a gun.)

            The reputation of the establishment is going to dictate whether it is usually a safe environment or not.

          Ohio’s concealed handgun law allows a person to carry their gun into a class D bar/restaurant if they are not drinking or under the influence of alcohol, and there are no signs posted prohibiting guns. If you intend to drink, you can’t carry it in. I regularly carry my gun in my purse into a local bar. I don’t drink and if I were going to, I’d go to my car, unload the gun, put the bullets in the trunk, and the unloaded gun elsewhere in the car which is what Ohio law says I have to do. I have found that people who have their concealed handgun license take it very seriously and follow the law strictly. Our friends tell me they feel safer knowing I have it with me just in case. Their are no loop holes to common sense when carrying a handgun.

            “I was being sincere when I wrote YAY RESPONSIBLE GUN OWNER! I was not patronizing Rhonda, I was commending her.”

            It is patronizing when you say yay a responsible gun owner, especially when you say “but guns need to be regulated”

            It’s the same as saying go you! But guns are bad because of other people, really now.

            You are patronizing her. You’re still going to go out there and try to support gun regulation, as you have mentioned, for assault weapons. Is the irresponsible if she owns an assault weapon? That would be patronizing to believe that. Do you believe that owning one in general is irresponsible? Then you support regulating responsible gun owners for the irresponsible, so saying yay a responsible gun owner by default holds the implied “but” by default.

            No matter which way you cut the cake, that comment was patronizing.

            As it turns out I do own an assault rifle – it’s my favorite gun of all that I own. It’s purely for fun and target shooting but I would not be afraid to use it to defend if needed. Patronizing or not, I work very hard to be a responsible gun owner. That is an area where more focus needs to be given. The majority of gun owners are responsible. We are condemned for owning guns by a very small percentage of non-responsible owners.

    The AR platform rifle has been sold since 1963. Some questions I have, what is “military grade?” and why, if the legal standing is sound, why does the plaintiff’s case rely on twisting the law, as Culhane said:

    “With Congress seemingly paralyzed on this issue, certain state court judges — depending on what state you’re in — might approach the case with some kind of urge to do something about it,” Culhane said. “A creative interpretation of the law like this might be a way to do that.”

    Why are gun manufacturers allowed to sell assault rifles to individuals in the first place? They are weapons of war and designed to kill. The gun manufacturers just need a market for their product so they are happy to sell them to anyone so they can keep making money.
    If only it was as hard to buy a gun in TX as it is to get an abortion.

      Gun manufacturers may sell currently legal assault weapons to enable US citizens to protect themselves against CRIMINALS who could obtain assault rifles illegally.

      Allowing only single-shot pistols to be sold legally would give criminals with assault weapons obtained illegally a big advantage in home invasions or other types of violent confrontation; e.g. night club, school, church, etc.

      Got any other easy questions?

      Do you know the difference between an assault rifle and a so-called assault weapon?
      What on a gun makes it a ‘weapon of war’?
      In your opinion is hunting a valid use of a firearm? If so, how would you require guns to be made so that they are lethal enough for a deer but not for a human?

            The Constitution only specifies a well-regulated militia in order to maintain a free state, referring to freedom from government oppression, as people here have written. It does not say we can have guns for personal protection in places like bars, a policy so stupid it is hard to believe anyone is taking the people making it seriously.

            you don’t think amendments can be updated and they can only be enacted or repealed? fine. then I’d argue we need to enact a 28th amendment that brings the 2nd amendment into the 21st century. again – i do not want to repeal the 2nd amendment.

          By your logic, the 2nd amendment does not apply to hunting rifles, handguns, shotguns or semi-automatic weapons. None of those are capable of stopping a tyrannical government.

          By the way, I am still waiting to see the list of well-regulated militias to all of these gun owners belong.

            Not true, Ron. All of those guns mentioned are arms that can assist in defending against a tyrannical government.

            Furthermore, the “well regulated militia” and “right to bear arms” are mutually exclusive. One does not have to be part of a well-regulated militia to be able to bear arms.

            FYI – here is a link to help you with finding the list of well regulated militias, by state, as constitutionally protected.

            Yes true. If the U.S. military comes knocking on your door, do you honestly believe that your .357, 12-gauge or 30.06 is going to stop them? Good luck.

            If they are mutually exclusive, and the intent of the 2nd Amendment is to allow just anyone to own a gun or guns, why does the amendment even mention a well regulated militia? Would it not just read, “Being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”? Then you would be right.

            I never said there were not well regulated state militias. Does every gun owner belong to one of these? Of course not. That was my point.

            Ron,

            I’ve said it before, I don’t own a gun. But if I did, and if I was going to participate in a revolution, I wouldn’t wait for the military to come knock on my door. By the way, part of the problem with “gun-control” that the libs want, is the list of people who own guns and what types of guns they have so they CAN come knock on the door and take them away if they deemed it in the “best interest” of the country (aka tyranny).

            Regarding your language question, I think it is obvious that the framers wanted the citizens to have the legal right to form a militia. Separately, they gave the right to citizens to bear arms (primarily for personal protection). Read the District of Columbia vs. Heller opinion for more detail.

            Also, you said “I am still waiting to see the list of well-regulated militias to all of these gun owners belong.” You didn’t ask for a list of gun owners that belong to militias. For the record, gun owners do not have to belong to a militia. The Constitution does not say or imply that. Using your logic, if they did mean that, why didn’t they say it that way?

            I guess we are playing the interpretation game. If that is the case, we will have to agree to disagree how to interpret the 2nd Amendment.

            I have read the opinion of that case. Have you read the dissent? If it was a 9-0 vote, I would agree with you. However, legal scholars far more qualified than you or I cannot even agree on the true intent of the amendment..

Bad intelligence. You want an example of a flat out lie? How about this one? Obama, Susan Rice and others (including Hillary) describing the attacks on Benghazi the result of a protest of a bad video. They all knew within hours of the attack that it was a coordinated terrorist attack on of all days 9/11. And then Obama compounded the lie by saying during the debate with Romney that the day after the attack in his Rose Garden speech, that he had called it a terrorist attack, when in truth all he did was mention terrorism but not not call Benghazi a terrorist attack. Then Candy Crawley lied and agreed and was ultimately fired by CNN. There’s some real lies for you actu.

        Integrity,

        The number isn’t small either in the difference.

        11,208 deaths to about 100,000,000 gun owners. That’s pretty responsible in my eyes. Also note that most of these murders were with a handgun. So much for benefits of banning automatic guns.

        https://www.gunowners.org/sk0802htm.htm

        Also, they are used for defense 2.5 million times per year. How many rapes could be prevented with a gun, or robberies in process? So to save 11,000 people, we enable criminals. I might add in these 11,000 the number of innocents shot is not broken down in my wiki link. I’ll look more into it later when I have more time.

        Whereas abortion is between 900,000 to 1.2 million per year.

        In 2014 there were 3.98 million births
        974,000 abortions

        This means of 4.954 million viable mothers, almost 20% of them aren’t fit to be mothers apparently. I say we need to regulate abortions. Those are insane numbers. 20% of womb owners are irresponsible, whereas it would appear that only .0001 percent of gun owners are irresponsible at max per year assuming that 100% of all deaths from guns are irresponsible, which is, in itself, an irresponsible assumption.

        If gun owners were as irresponsible with guns as mothers were with abortions,

        We would have 20,000,000 gun deaths per year and we would all be wiped out in 5.

        That should also show the abortion issue is very serious.

        In New York more blacks were aborted than born recently. It’s not the only city like this.

        http://www.politifact.com/texas/statements/2015/nov/25/cynthia-meyer/cynthia-meyer-says-more-black-babies-are-aborted-n/

        Is abortion out of control, to any of the 4 people I just referenced? I’m genuinely curious. Do any of you see this as a problem of run away abortion? Or do you think abortion regulation would put the rights of women under attack from rich white men (in Captain’s scenario) or by religion (In Ron’s scenario) or God knows what in the others.

        I see…when its a personal choice, a person should have that choice. Because the choice to kill a baby is so much more important than the choice to own whatever gun a person wants to own.

        Please, one of you liberals try to defend this.

          If I was pro-abortion or a liberal, I might.

          Anything else?

            You’re pro life but don’t find it important enough to vote regarding,

            You have previously mocked republicans for passing abortion regulations,

            Really Ron, this is why I called you a Catholic Apologetic in the past.

            I don’t believe you hold that belief you just said, that or you do and for some reason think that when republicans try to do abortion laws it is wrong somehow in a contradictory fashion.

            Bob,

            Please provide my voting record, other than the office of the president. Not for whom you think I voted, the actual candidates.

            When have I mocked Republicans for passing abortion regulations? Citation needed. More likely, I have criticized them for only caring about abortion during the campaign season just to get our votes.

            When did I say I was pro-life? I am against abortions based on my own personal beliefs. However, unlike you, I do not believe that, in a secular nation, we should make laws or force people to make decisions based on religion.

            If one can make an argument that the fetus is not a human being until it reaches a stage in which he/she can be viable outside of the womb, and therefore is completely dependent upon the mother’s body, it is a part of the mother’s body and not yet his/her own person. I am not saying that is what I believe, but if someone does, that should be respected. If that is the case, then that person should be able to make decisions based on their own body.

            In my opinion, the heart of the abortion debate is the lack of a universal acceptance as to what stage do we define the fetus as a person. We have our opinion that it is at conception. Others believe otherwise.

          Nobody wants to debate you because you are an ignoramus who denies science. No, a zygote that is smaller than a pinhead, or the size of your brain, is not the same or as important as actual living humans who are murdered because ammosexuals have deranged fantasies about being vigilantes like George Zimmerman.

            Really?? Deny science? Do you deny that what is inside a pregnant female is not a baby human that is living (regardless of what you want to call it)?

            You think a poor defenseless yet-to-be born living child in the womb is not as important as a living human that is outside of the womb? Now that is deranged and it is obvious you have no common sense.

          integrity, our professorial Constitutional scholar President said that he was frustrated with the Constitution because it kept saying what couldn’t be done. No wonder he keeps trying to do Executive Orders which is writing law that a President does not have Constitutional authority to do. He just got shot down again (excuse the pun) on his immigration order. He either gets challenged/sued by Congress or the Supremes on every issue. He should just give up, go golf and retire from public life. Worst President in history.

            Agent,

            I am convinced more and more each day that Obama is a traitor. If it wasn’t for the Constitutional laws that we have, he would have taken over this country and turned it into a dictatorship. He’s gotten as close as a person could so far.

            I’m glad the law was upheld with the SCOTUS tie. I wish it was a 8-0 vote to erase any doubt from the left.

            integrity, a lot of people think this country is a Democracy which is a lie. It was set up as a Constitutional Republic and even with some flaws, it is far superior to a Democracy which only invites chaos, much like Democrats seem to prefer. Just look at what Obama has done to this country in a little more than 7 years. He is the great divider as shown on every issue and problem and offers the exact opposite of doing the right thing. No wonder the problems seem so great. Time to change it all out in November.

      AR’s can kill, but so can any other gun. That mentality says all guns must be taken away which then takes away our constitutional right to bear arms. I own an AR and it is my favorite gun. I only use it to shoot targets for fun. It is my right to do that. When you start banning stuff, it snowballs, then all guns are banned – 1 constitutional right down and which one will be next? I myself don’t want what our country was founded on taken away from me.

      uhh. guys? don’t the secret service and other government-hired security forces have to go through background checks and training before they’re hired and given weapons? if so, that’s why we’re not fearful of them. if they don’t have to be trained or researched to see if they’re on the terrorist watch list, then i’m fearful of their weapons too.

          how is my stance so difficult to understand?

          1) I like the 2nd amendment

          2) Citizens should be able to own guns

          3) If the gov’t gets to use a Schwerer Gustav, citizens should be able to buy and use it too

          4) The 2nd amendment should be updated so gun buyers are (a) checked against the terrorist watch list and (b) ensure they have some form of gun safety training.

          That’s it.

          EVERYONE GETS TO KEEP THEIR GUNS EXCEPT POTENTIAL TERRORISTS AND PEOPLE WHO CAN’T PASS GUN SAFETY CLASSES.

          Roger that?

            That last phrase is extremely dishonest.

            No republicans are against safety classes and getting a gun legally.

            No republicans support laws to give potential terrorists guns.

            Also, you have in this post said you are against automatic weapons. So you’re not for citizens owning guns. You’re for them owning “reasonable” guns, which to me considering my numbers above is completely unreasonable.

            Your position keeps changing. You’re ok with gun laws, except this, except that, except somehow you can’t explain republicans are causing terrorists and jack offs to get guns!

            Derp.

            confused,
            Thank you for advancing the conversation. I’m giving you an thumbs-up for that alone.

            Everyone wants to keep terrorists from getting guns.

            However, keeping guns out of the hands of those on a no-fly list runs straight into the due process clause of the Constitution. Who is on the list is classified, how they got there is classified, who put them on there is classified, and the criteria used to decide if they can come off is classified.

            You can’t remove a civil liberty due to such an opaque & legally unaccountable process.

            I like the 1st amendment, but I don’t think people should be able to yell “fire” in a movie theater.

            I like the 2nd amendment, but I don’t think people should be able to buy guns if they can’t board a plane.

            That doesn’t make me a schizophrenic.

            “So you don’t like the fact that the government can buy fully automatic rifles (machine guns) and we cannot? Like many liberals, not well thought out.”

            How many times do I have to say the same thing before you understand?

            LAWFUL CITIZENS WHO AREN’T ON A TERRORIST WATCH LIST SHOULD BE ABLE TO OWN WHATEVER WEAPONS THE GOV’T CAN USE.

            IF THE GOV’T CAN USE A GUSTAV, CITIZENS SHOULD BE ABLE TO LEGALLY BUY ONE TOO.

            So no – I don’t like it if the gov’t can use a weapon that citizens cannot lawfully buy themselves. Got it yet??

            My interpretation of Confused’s position is that, if the intent of the 2nd Amendment is to allow the citizens to protect themselves from a tyrannical government, they should be allowed access to the same weaponry as said government. Otherwise, the 2nd Amendment, as the right has interpreted the intent, is useless as written.

            How is that Confused?

He is especially bitter since he saw his friend get his head blown off by a sniper. They could not fight back. They had to call the Iraqi army in to try to get the sniper. Of course, the sniper was long gone by the time the Iraqi army showed up.

          Ah Captain, the same old liberal lie. Let me repeat:

          Bush did not lie about weapons of mass destruction. It was bad intelligence. The Israelis, Germans, French, British and US intelligence departments all believed Iraq had them. No lie. Bad intelligence. You want an example of a flat out lie? How about this one? Obama, Susan Rice and others (including Hillary) describing the attacks on Benghazi the result of a protest of a bad video. They all knew within hours of the attack that it was a coordinated terrorist attack on of all days 9/11. And then Obama compounded the lie by saying during the debate with Romney that the day after the attack in his Rose Garden speech, that he had called it a terrorist attack, when in truth all he did was mention terrorism but not not call Benghazi a terrorist attack. Then Candy Crawley lied and agreed and was ultimately fired by CNN. There’s some real lies for you Captain.

They also don’t like admitting 350,000 Muslims who do nothing but stir up trouble and chaos. Maybe mass deportations will be next in order. This country can learn from them and take similar actions. It is time to put this country first and not a bunch of elitist idiots who like one world order.

        Can you name 1 actual change that will happen because of Britain’s exit from the EU? Not “they COULD deport 350,000 Muslims in the future” or “they COULD do this or that”

        I’m asking you to tell us ONE thing that DEFINITELY changed with this decision. You know, some kind of fact to indicate you know what this decision really means TODAY.

        Thanks for not insulting me in you reply since I’m just asking you to provide a fact, not an opinion.

          Allow Winston Churchill to answer your question.

          The inherit vice of Capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherit blessings of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

          The British people are tired of Progressive Socialists just like we are tired of Obama. James Cameron, the newly resigned Prime Minister had a close friendship with Obama. Need we say more?

            dude, no amount of explanation on any subject would ever sink in with you. Stay tuned for the impact of this decision. Stay tuned to what Angela Merkel will do as well. I don’t think she wants to support Europe on her own which is almost the case as it is. Progressive Socialism is the biggest economic failure in history. Every country that has tried it has failed, most miserably.

    Ron “My interpretation of Confused’s position is that….the citizens…should be allowed access to the same weaponry as said government.”

    THANK YOU!! Finally someone gets what I’ve been saying.

    I don’t understand why some people here keep trying to tell me that I want to take their guns away, or that I think automatic weapons should be illegal, or that I’m patronizing someone when I sincerely commend them for being a responsible gun owner.

    You want a gun, fine. The government wants a gatling gun? Sure, as long as every citizen can get a gatling gun too! Why can’t anyone else understand this line of thinking?!?

        “I get what everyone is saying. That is the power of being an analytical Independent, not some emotional Conservative or Liberal.

        The righties especially hate those who think and are not sheep.”

        That last line removes your ability to be independent.

        Also, your description of Confused may be what confused says he agrees with now, however, he is clearly advocating getting rid of automatic weapons and is focusing on what might do that. His primary argument starts at automatic weapons = bad and the founding fathers didn’t consider this. He has said as much.

        He is not starting with whether or not arms are meant to defend from a tyrannical government (otherwise he would not say the above as it is irrelevant to having equal weapons, see the contradiction or no? The conservatives see this and are calling him out on it, they are not being blind sided, YOU are), ergo why when Agent said come and get them and see what happens, confused said see US – War, Civil.

        Ironically, you are incapable of seeing double speak from democrats. A weakness you have from not being an independent.

          Bob, Ron has professed to be an Independent many times and studied all the candidates positions before voting on the last day. He then selected Obama twice as his President. He is nothing more than a Democrat in sheeps clothing. Being from liberal NY gives him no standing and it gives true Independents a bad name. Most of them are Conservative, not liberal dirt bags.

            Woah, he’s from NY?

            I don’t know why but that surprises me. Though it sometimes surprises me I’m from WA State.

            Although, even though I’m not like leftists here I certainly do have the style of speech of a Washingtonian.

            I actually throw in swear words sometimes specifically because I’m tired of talking like a Washingtonian smart ass.

            I’m sometimes far too focused on the structure of my speech and it’s common around here.

            Bob, where have you been for the past 4 or 5 years? I confirmed Ron was from Buffalo long ago and that explains his know it all NY rhetoric. I can’t prove it and the leftist’s won’t admit it, but I believe most of them are either from NY or in a neighboring state that are equally Progressive with high taxation, high regulation and with dufus governors. They don’t appear to be proud of their state, that is for sure. I cut you some slack for being from Washington State. I am sure you have a burden to carry. Hopefully, your office is not so liberal that you have issues with some of the employees at the water cooler. Aren’t these word parsing liberals fun? Angry trolls! I see you do lose your temper from time to time when they call you a dolt, idiot, bully all the time. They are all resistant to hearing the truth and perhaps the brain washing in college did the trick with them.

            Need a funny for the end of the week. How about British paper headlines on Brexit! See EU later!

          If there was the smallest chance I would argue citizens should not be allowed automatic weapons, I would not have kept posting if you want MP5’s or a gatling gun or a Schwerer Gustav, you can have one so long as the government gets to use those weapons too.

          Google Schwerer Gustav.

          Look at the kind of gun I’m saying people can have so long as it’s legal across the board and the gov’t gets to use them too.

          If I’m saying you can have one of those, there’s no way in hell I would try to argue a smaller weapon should be banned!

          Stop mischaracterizing what I wrote. I have not “outright said automatic weapons should not be in the hands of the citizens”.

          I have literally said the exact opposite of that about a dozen times!

          I said the 2nd amendment needs to be updated so people on a terrorist watch list can’t buy guns. That’s the only way I’ve suggested we amend the 2nd amendment.

          Suggesting it has to be amended does automatically (pun intended!) mean I want to ban automatic weapons. I have already explained 12 times what I meant when I said it should be amended and not once did I say I felt automatic weapons should be banned.

            I know double speak when I see it, you are used to lying like this because your leaders do it.

            What did you mean then, when you said this?

            “no. people just realize the second amendment needs to be updated because it was written ~100 years before the first automatic weapon was ever made.”

            You’re trying to say the aspect that you don’t care about weapons solely to make it ok to pass democrat laws. Don’t worry they won’t take your guns. That’s a lie, and they will. They are aiming for it.

            When they quote the number of deaths from assault rifles and then try to pass clip bans and ammo limits, that is trying to remove them. They already passed a law to remove them, it just expired a few years back.

            You’re following your leaders well, but I’m not an idiot confused.

            If you believe the facet that made the law dated was “automatic” weapons, that was your starting point, not whether the government had equal weapons.

            Back then automatic stationary weapons existed. So if you believed it was about having equal weapons the amendment would not have been dated based on automatic ones.

            The automatic weapons is what you said made it dated and need to be revised.

            So how does it need to be revised then, if you didn’t mean to remove automatic weapons? You’re lying here.

            You know you lost and now you’re saying the government should have the same weapons. Well then, it doesn’t need to be updated if you think we should all have the weapons you mentioned, as all would be automatic weapons. Sooooo….Yeah. I’m not stupid Confused, I know what you meant.

            The amendment doesn’t need modifying. It states well enough you are allowed to own weapons.

            If you mean to state within reason, that means you aren’t for equal weapons for the state and person.

            If you mean to state safely and regulated, that wording doesn’t need to be included with the right to bear arms. The regulation of the government on that can be passed through laws as to how to register guns, juts like everything else. Amendments don’t deal with that, and if you believe so you clearly don’t know how the government should handle this or how it works.

            You’re either ignorant here or you’re lying.

            The conservatives calling you out are not misinformed however.

            yes – i said the 2nd amendment was written before automatic weapons. that’s a fact. i used that as a point of reference to indicate things have changed since the law was enacted.

            i never meant “we need to get rid of automatic weapons” and i apologize if that’s what you thought i was saying.

            that was not my intent, I could have phrased it better, and as you can see, I have gone WELL out of my way to make that abundantly clear for 12+ posts now.

            you can believe my sincere mea culpa of that phrasing and look at what I have written to try to explain that comment in the dozen posts since then and we can have a civil discussion about gun laws, or not.

            And you later then said the see US War – Civil in regards to if the government comes to get the guns, instead of “that would be unlawful”. You focused on the gun owner and not what would have obviously been a violation of rights. I’m not inclined to believe you.

            If we are going to talk about gun rights starting at the amendment which whether or not automatic weapons existed at the time is irrelevant (they did by the way)

            We should absolutely have a discussion about gun regulation (not the amendment which is a dishonest conversation)

            From there, if you’re not ok with automatic weapon bans, go tell that to the democrats that banned them in 1996 I believe it was.

            Go tell the democrats who insist on and have fought after each shooting to ban clips over a certain size and how much ammo one can buy.

            Don’t go telling the republicans they are anti gun law because they are fighting those measures, and because they are calling clear steps toward gun control clear steps toward gun control.

            I have already showed republicans who passed laws the NRA didn’t like for regulation.

            You just stated they were not for sound gun control because they don’t support Obama’s methods.

            When Obama passes a gun law that involves say mental health, and ties that with other gun regulations, and the republicans deny it, they are not denying mental health issues. They are denying the crap section of the law.

            So instead of dishonestly saying they are against all gun regulation like your leaders do, you could have an honest discussion about it.

            A post coming on this.

            http://poorrichardsnews.com/there-are-31-gun-control-bills-active-in-congress/

            What do you notice in a few of these bills?

            The first bill is the one Obama mentioned that Republicans didn’t pass, that would supposedly prevent private gun sales which he said was a risk.

            “This bill would require all gun sales to go through dealers, eliminating private gun sales. It would require background checks for all transfers of guns. It would require carry permit holders to provide adequate reason that they are “worthy of public trust” and have “good reason” to carry a firearm. It would allow the Attorney General to deny the sale or transfer of a firearm.”

            Do you see how a republican might be ok with expanded background checks…

            But AGAINST the clear attempt of a gun grab with the wording:

            “It would require carry permit holders to provide adequate reason that they are “worthy of public trust” and have “good reason” to carry a firearm”

            This same wording is used in other countries who eventually confiscated guns, like oh say Australia? I don’t care if Australia has ended mass shootings (supposedly) if numbers I provided are any indication of how many crimes are prevented by gun ownership I will take that over stopping what was I believe 15 shootings in 13 years…Or was it 17 mass shootings in 13 years?

            This law was passed like this on purpose, and I have shown this before on oh say the discrimination laws and gay rights laws that impose CRIMINAL liability for saying anything that might slander a gay, with no protection for religious entities or beliefs. This wording would literally trigger for saying being gay is a sin. The republicans in WA State agreed to pass it with amendment. The democrats refused, and then said they were against gay rights.

            Same thing here with gun control. They passed it with gun control measures, and when the republicans said they wouldn’t pass it they said why are you against expanded background checks?

            They aren’t. It’s the same tactic, every, single, god, damn, time.

            And I’m sick of it.

            This is why I have zero tolerance for fraudulent people on this issue. Absolutely Zero. The democrats are 100% for a fact lying on this, and they lie on several similar issues to cause class warfare, which the republicans simply don’t do.

            They don’t send in a law with these types of provisions to try and seed it through until they get their way.

            If they do show me comparable laws they have tried this with.

            Look, I’m not sure if you’re just stupid on the issue (and this is not my way of insulting you, I am stupid on many issues) or if you’re lying, I probably shouldn’t call you a liar.

            But when reading my posts and my concerns, you would do well to be cautious of any statements that republicans are against gun sound gun control or extremely polarized beliefs regarding something if you have not solidly researched the issue to see why republicans might reject it and if there was validity to their rejection.

            At that point it might reveal the intent of democrats, because that one I just showed you?

            That one proves they tried to set up a similar method that Australia passed before taking guns, and then they said why don’t you approve this? And whined like a bully.

            They punched the republicans in the face, then backed off and said look everyone! They won’t pass it! Let’s get em! GET THOSE SOUTHERN HICKS KILLING YOUR KIDS IN MASS SHOOTINGS!!! GET THEM!!!

            And this polarized behavior is for a fact what they are doing. They may as well be going out there starting a war to win their elections.

            It’s sick.

            Bob, you must be replying to someone else because I never “stated Republicans were not for sound gun control because they don’t support Obama’s methods”, I never said “republicans don’t pass laws the NRA doesn’t like”, and I never said “[Republicans] are against all gun regulation.”

            Hell, I never even said Obama or Republicans or Democrats at all! It seems that you are intent on debating things I never said and things I don’t believe instead of what I’ve posted as my beliefs – not the beliefs of a political party, my own thoughts on the matter I’ve reiterated a dozen times here.

            We can’t have an honest discussion if you keep putting words in my mouth, claiming I said things I never said, or arguing my beliefs are different than what I actually posted.

            I’ll try to restart this conversation fresh and hope you’re able to respond to the points I make and not arguments Democrats say, which I don’t actually agree with in the first place. Let’s try again.

            I think lawful citizens should be able to own automatic weapons. I think if the government says you’re unsafe to board a plane because you’re a suspected terrorist, you should not be able to own a gun. I think if you cannot get a driver’s license because you have multiple DUIs on your driving record, you should not be able to own a gun. Do you agree with my beliefs here or disagree? If you disagree, why?

            There are certain posters on this blog that need to put words into our mouths in order to make their narratives about us work. I do not think I need to name names, but will upon request.

            Ron,

            I’ll post to you first:

            I am correct about my posts to confused. I am not putting words in his mouth, I am holding him accountable.

            You however, supported a group of people who said that I WAS FOR KILLING Muslims, by association.

            Some people here do put words and beliefs into mouths. It is not me.

            You are one of those people, but I hold people accountable.

            You claim often you are what I am. That is until I show you aren’t actually analyzing facts and are instead arguing narrative. Do you understand the difference?

            What you just argued was narrative. You argue republicans supposedly do this all the time. That’s narrative.

            I know when someone is backing out of something that they have made it clear what their opinion is regarding.

            By the way Ron:

            I noticed that you didn’t chime in when UW did what you should consider to be far worse than my holding confused accountable here (as he was swearing etc)

            And simultaneously you have said here that it is republicans who do this behavior more often.

            Hmmmmmmmmmm

            HHHMMMMMM!!!!!

            Perhaps you ignore it when democrats do it, and then choose to focus on trying to find it from republicans?

            While that is actually not what is occurring here?

            Maybe false equivalency with a liberal bias is your issue? Perhaps you should consider the facts instead of supporting your republicans are worse at this item narrative?

            Perhaps?

            This is one of the biggest reasons we get into it hardcore. I find you to be the biggest hypocrite.

            As for you Confused:

            I don’t have time to argue back and forth on this with you.

            You’re being mislead and are dishonest with even yourself.

            The republicans are not against sound gun control, they are not for terrorists having guns as Obama has been saying lately, they are not for mentally unstable people having guns as Obama said before that, they are not against background checks as Obama said before that, and every law he tried to pass since then he has tied the wording or similar wording to having to have a “reason” to own a gun as part of the law, dishonestly restricting gun access while he says that isn’t what he is doing.

            Then he goes to a shooting range and people go look! He likes guns!

            It reminds me of Putin’s publicity stunts. Look! I’m petting a tiger, RAWR! I’m strong!

            The only conclusion one can draw is democrats are against gun ownership, and republicans are not.

            Anything beyond that as far as you have taken it with “sound gun control” is because you’re lying to yourself, or you’re being lied to by democrats.

            He’s telling Agent that Agent will start a civil war for his guns.

            Which is more damaging to society? Which one is a more dishonest and partisan comment to make?

            Which one gets done more often by the leftists on this site?

            You’re going to destroy the world!
            You’re going to start a civil war!

            Or

            You’re not accurate on this, here is what you have said, here are the laws themselves, the republicans are not blocking sound gun law. Here is you saying automatic proved the law was dated, here is you going against gun owners instead of saying that the government would be violating the gun owner’s rights and therefore are blaming them unjust fully, here is why I don’t believe you.

            I am not putting words in his mouth. I’m daring to believe he either doesn’t know what he’s talking about or he’s being dishonest.

            And there is not one damn thing wrong with that. It’s called, being Independent.

      You have outright said automatic weapons should not be in the hands of citizens. So are you saying we should disarm our military and send them out there with pistols?

      That is the default assumption here if you maintain that position.

      While you have backpedaled and tried to say you are ok with people having the same guns as the government, you have out right said people should not own automatic guns in the past. If you wish to change that stance, you might want to tell the conservatives here who are holding you to it.

        Bob, we had Gatling guns in the Civil War. That was pretty automatic back then. Crank the handle and it could churn out the bullets just like a machine gun.

        Bob, I saw an interesting political cartoon this morning. Picture a line in front of a gun store. A guy behind a lady said – did you hear about the Democrats holding a sit in at Congress over Gun Control? The lady replied – Yes, that is why I am here.

          Hmm, I get the joke but I wish it were more funny.

          These guys keep trying to slyly throw in the gun control, and every time there is a shooting they then try to pull at heartstrings saying they are just passing common sense background checks, while throwing in wording that makes you have to have a “reason” to have a gun, and prove that you are an honest citizen.

          How in the hell do you even do that?

          The right to gun ownership is infringed the moment you have to prove you have a reason to own a gun.

          That is the government saying you don’t have one, whereas the law was designed so you would tell the government they didn’t have a reason to deny you one.

          It’s the ultimate irony.

          To see them try to throw that wording in there again and again, after each massacre, lie to the public about their agenda, and then claim since the republicans didn’t support it that they are for terrorists having guns, shooters having guns, etc, makes me sick

          It divides the country.

    Bob – you reiterated your democratic/republican arguments in your response to me which leads me to believe you didn’t accurately read my post or that you didn’t read it at all. Let me try again.

    I never “stated Republicans were not for sound gun control because they don’t support Obama’s methods”, I never said “republicans don’t pass laws the NRA doesn’t like”, and I never said “[Republicans] are against all gun regulation.”

    Hell, I never even said Obama or Republicans or Democrats at all! It seems that you are intent on debating things I never said and things I don’t believe instead of what I’ve posted as my beliefs – not the beliefs of a political party, my own thoughts on the matter I’ve reiterated a dozen times here.

    I’ll try to restart this conversation fresh and hope you’re able to respond to the points I make and not arguments Democrats say, which I don’t actually agree with in the first place. Let’s try again.

    I think lawful citizens should be able to own automatic weapons. I think if the government says you’re unsafe to board a plane because you’re a suspected terrorist, you should not be able to own a gun. I think if you cannot get a driver’s license because you have multiple DUIs on your driving record, you should not be able to own a gun. Do you agree with my beliefs here or disagree? If you disagree, why?

      Disregarding that you’re almost certainly wrong about never having said anything about this issue, I don’t want to take the time to prove you wrong and I have no reason to. I would rather you say the words with your own mouth which would be a better tool against the liberals here who constantly reiterate these talking points. In that point, I only have three questions:

      1: Do you in fact believe that republicans are blocking attempts at background checks, mental health checks, and gun safety laws?

      2: Do you believe Obama has tried to pass laws inhibiting gun ownership and it is a goal with democrats? I showed you some examples so I would hope your answer would be yes, instead of ACTU’s answer of no.

      3: Would you vote for a republican if he had publicly denounced Obama regarding gun ownership and consider it a positive at that?

      I went back to check a few of your gun statements, and while your statements here do in fact seem to be poorly worded when it came to the law being dated and using the word “automatic”,

      You have in the past said some comments that suggest you are not against gun ownership that would suggest you probably did just word your automatic gun comment poorly.

      I still have some red flags with how you worded things to Agent though with the Civil war comment instead of focusing on the violation of rights.

      But I’m willing to disregard it.

        Bob, it is not too hard to tell who is winning this argument between you and Confused. He is so “confused” he wants to re-start the conversation after you handed him his head for numerous posts. Aren’t these word parsing liberals fun? Nothing sinks in and if you offer facts and common sense, they just go right back to their talking points without catching their breath. That is why I stopped responding to them. Rosenblatt is terrible about word parsing so he went on my list some weeks ago.

      And when I say went back I don’t mean on this insurance post.

      I went back much further and found a comment about regulating or paying for classes for gun ownership.

      You sided with the pro gun folks rather quickly and corrected yourself.

      That being the case I imagine you can’t be anti gun. You really should be more careful with phrasing.

        of course i’m not anti-gun! that’s why i kept writing “You want a gun, fine. The government wants a gatling gun? Sure, as long as every citizen can get a gatling gun too!” That’s a pretty pro-gun position, yeah?

        bob, please don’t fall into the trap of a word parsing liberal. You can post facts all day to them and they will still not get it and then ask you to explain once again. It is a complete waste of time. It is kind of like trying to explain why Obamacare was a disaster. They will keep asking why rather than look at the mountain of evidence.

          bob and i are trying to have a civil discussion here, agent. i would appreciate you not lobbing out insults in the middle of it.

          also, i already told you more than once that i think obamacare was a super duper failure. it’s time to move on from that trope.

      It seems you are still intent on debating the beliefs of a political party and/or affiliation as you are not responding to my arguments I’ve reiterated a dozen times.

      How about a little quid pro quo?

      Answer what I have asked you multiple times and I will be happy answer your questions. Please respond to what I am asking and not what Democrats or others on this site have said.

      I think if the government says you’re unsafe to board a plane because you’re a suspected terrorist, you should not be able to own a gun. If you cannot get a driver’s license because you have multiple DUIs on your driving record, I feel you should not be able to own a gun.

      Do you agree with my beliefs here or disagree? If you disagree, why?

        Quid pro quo does not apply for this. It’s your beliefs on the matter that are in question, mine are clear.

        I am willing to let the aspect go only if I see that you are actually pro gun, my three questions are relevant to that.

        Your question is not relevant to the argument.

        Do I agree with your belief that anyone should be allowed to own a gun? Yes.

        Do I think you’re being honest, your most recent post is again making me believe you’re not.

        My questions are relevant to backing up that you are against gun control. This is especially true of 1 and 2, less so on 3.

        It is a partisan issue. So if you don’t even know who is for guns, who is against, and you wrongfully believe that republicans are against regulations (which I accused you of, and you need to straighten it out, you just prior were ok with saying you never said that, now I’m worried as you’re saying you also never said contrary to that and refuse to say contrary to that, this sounds like intentional manipulation to me).

        I am clever confused. I’m not going to fall for fraudulent gun support.

        Answer 1 and 2. 3 I don’t care so much about. I just answered your question.

          And I expect you to back up your beliefs on 1 and 2 by the way.

          If you believe republicans are against these things, you need to prove it.

          I have already shown how they are not, and it is actually the sections of the law that Obama hid in there saying you have to prove you have a reason and are trust worthy enough to have a gun that they have an issue with.

          You have now said that you never said that republicans are against sound gun control, but given your last comment I have a feeling you’re about to, which would mean I did not misrepresent your beliefs, which you certainly tried to say I did.

          We are going to have a proper conversation. You can’t wiggle out of this one. That’s why you don’t want to answer the question.

          I’m willing to admit I was wrong if you clarify on 1 and 2. You’re not however willing to admit you were either wrong about my “characterization” of you or alternatively state your actual position. You don’t want your position to be known, do you?

          This is insanely frustrating. Be direct confused.
