    So what does gun control mean to a liberal democrat?

    Didn't Joe Biden take credit for constructing the Clinton assault weapons ban?
    I dont have a problem with banning assault weapons especially in densly populated inner city and urban areas. After all, this isn't Iraq and nobody should have to live in a combat in zone in the US, especially children.

    he shouldve had his party ready to rule.
    ready to do all the things theyve been saying for years needed to be done.
    they couldve done everything they wanted to,
    instead all they really did was barely pass healthcare legislation,
    that may or may not even be legal.
    outstanding.

    fair point
    but our expanding national debt tells me
    politicians are still willing to spend money.

    Regardless of who is in office I doubt that will change. Sad but true. :-/ But most (over half) of what I've seen spent so far has been in mitigating the affects of the Crash.
