    Biden was the author of the last gun ban.

    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.

    I hate the place your logic takes us to also!

    I'm getting real tired of people's feeble attempts comparing a car that is needed for for transportation, to the weapon of choice with gangs in the US and Mexico.

    Just wanted you to know how stupid that comparison sounds to those without your unique insight.

    Ted Kennedy's car has killed more people than my guns

    Criminals don't obey gun laws either. Also why aren't you blaming the Obama Administration for arming those drug cartels in Mexico?

    Guns are needed for self defense, I can't help it if some people use them for illegal purposes. If you take my self defense weapon the bad guys will be the only armed guys.

    I would say the liberal zealots were very upfront about wanting 'gun control'. Moderates didn't think President Obama would unilaterally announce sweeping restrictions. However a series of rather outrageous mass murders has pushed many citizens to deciding something must be done.

    What restrictions that may or may not be finally adopted are still very much in the wind. Reduce the number of rounds in the mag? that means returning to the restrictions BushII announced during his term. A list of weapons that can not longer be imported? Again that sounds like it has been done before by a Bush.

    Course the right wing will scream- SEE SEE he wants our guns n our Bibles!

    Lets hope rational folks on all sides of this issue can come together and work on more than stirring anger, fear and resentment.

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.
    There is no such thing as an "Assault Weapon". Any weapon can be classified as an "Assault Weapon" like knives and bats.

    There are automatic and semi automatic guns.

    You are not rational

    Any Collectivist Authoritarian who is gleeful about taking away my 2nd Amendment Rights, which was STATED in the Constitution, not granted by Government, by his very nature is irrational.

    Gun Control legislation didn't work before. It won't work now. You know what they say about the definition of mental illness. Trying the same thing over and over expecting different results and all that ...

    True but in todays world if it looks military it gets classified as an assault weapon. It's the wacky world we live in and the libs have won the language war on this.

    Biden is a gaping asshole when it comes to gun rights. He consistently lies and spews dishonesty. I listened to his boss lie today-claiming we have to do something to keep nutcases from getting guns. THE NUTCASE MURDERED HIS MOTHER

    I guess what Obummer is saying is that we have to ban all guns so nutcases cannot kill the lawful owners

    If this is true then how do you explain the ATF arming Mexican gangsters who target civilian police (and beauty queens I guess)? What one says and what one does can be 2 different things.
