    Most of the reasons given to ban firearms are directly transferred over to alcohol.
    Yet people would be up in arms over another alcohol prohibition.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Believe it or not, that's not the assignment he was given by President Obama.

    The liberal zealots scoffed at the idea that Obama would attempt to implement any form of gun control during his second term in office. They also disparaged those who disagreed with them. The funny yet sad thing is they believed each other.

    Anyone who owns a gun knows damn well you just don't let people "borrow" them like pencils.
    Always fun to see some folks claim mad skills in killing but refer to a weapon having a clip. I have routinely let my FAMILY use my firearms. I have routinely lent my rifles to others while hunting feral hogs, introducing them to long range marksmanship as well as my 45 to folks wanting to see what pistol shooting is like.

    I attempt to introduce as many folks to the safe and fun use of firearms as opposed to some freakish paranoid possession of them.

    But to each their own.

    President Obama on Wednesday tapped Vice President Biden to lead an administration-wide effort looking at gun control and other measures in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting last week.
    "The fact that this problem is complex can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing," Obama said.
    The move marks the first concrete step by the White House toward crafting new firearms restrictions.

    "New policies to curb gun violence in wake of shooting." Sounds to me that it could include mental health, because it is a mental health problem. You're just trying to sound like a Republican and imply that Obama has been trying to take away our guns. Quite a stretch, don't you think? It is a mental health issue and my guess is it will be a mental health solution, plus ending 100 round clips, assault weapons, and perhaps another rational option.

    I think a good number of people want to look at tighter gun control laws. So you are wrong here. Also he wants to look at other areas where we can improve. So our President is doing his job. I am sick to death of hearing about the 2nd amendment and how it give right to unlimited gun ownership. Plus ask any rational person why they need a 30 or 100 clip and the best they can come up with is maybe target practice. Bottom line the President is doing his job. I guess he had the pusle of right wing America more than most of us thought. Cling to guns and religion, and that scares the crap out of a majority of Americans
    What rational person needs a car that goes 200 mph, Ferraris should be banned. As long as you follow the law, you should not be punished for your possessions.

    Since everyone who commits mass murder is crazy, lets just lock up everyone with a mental illness. We all know someone who is a bit off, the public needs to be protected from these people.

    I sometimes hate the place that logic takes us.

    Let me know when a Ferrari opens fire on 5-10 year olds then we can have that talk. Again I would lve an answer to my question what does a person need with a 30 round or 100 round clip? You are not being rational. Just making dumb comparisons in hope that some gun nuts run to your aide

    As I read your post I am listening to the nightly news ABC, he is proposing an assault rifle ban, a large clip ban and some other ban that I have lost for the moment because you distracted me;.
