    There's a reason they don't let us handle such personally. While I can't say I wouldn't want to kill that person, I would hope the law wouldn't allow me, and if my beliefs mean anything at all, then they must stand when times are hard. Beliefs are not beleifs if we only hold them when it is easy to so.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    "What they're saying is, 'they want to have a chance'," he told the Denver Post. "They want to have the ability to protect themselves and their families if they are in a situation like what happened in the movie theatre."

    July 29th is supposed to be a Saturday in the near future, maybe they meant the 20th, not the 29th.


    Some of them could be saying that they are afraid guns may soon be harder to obtain after what happened.

    He isnt....

    Ever checked out Obama's Brady ratings (you know the anti gun groups report card)? Wanna know what Obama got? F's. Pretty much straight F's.
    Quite the anti gun president huh?

    carolyn McCarthy is certifiably insane on this issue. She was too stupid to figure out that NYC's draconian gun laws didn't stop Colin Ferguson from killing a family member in a gun free railway car. So rather than dealing with what really caused her tragedy, she gained fame and fortune and power by blaming guns rather than the murderer.

    she is a scum bag of the worst order

    she wants to punish everyone who owns a gun to slake her grief.

    tell me, which candidate do you think the big anti gun group members will give the most bucks to

    which justices do they lie the best? Sotomayor (dissent in McDOnald) and Kagan or Roberts and Alito?

    I heard saw that too. Any notions that Obama is actively anti-gun are completely groundless. He has basically ignored the issue.

    he believed staying in office with as many dems in congress as possible was more important to him than trying to impose his views about guns (that were expressed while a state senator and a US senator)

    Im sure he wants to close the gunshow loophole..and maybe restrict magazine sizes & limit handgun purchases to one per month per person.
