    Political hay - what in the hell are you talking about? Bringing up the idea that there ought to be some control over what kinds of weapons are available to any clown with money is 'making political hay'? What is with you people and your obsession with owning military style weapons? Is it some kind of manly thing?
    Also ask those parents if they wish there had been an armed security person posted inside the school ?

    See how that works ?

    I think the NRA has a PR nightmare on its hands.
    Their membership is expanding. Gun sales through the roof right now. Ditto for magazines and ammo.

    You were saying ..........

    In the same sense that being able to own millions of matchbox cars but not a car capable of transporting your family somewhere is "fairly restrictive", yes. We are discussing here a restriction that is significant because of the type. It is a departure from the original intent of the Second Amendment, which was designed to give the civilian populace parity with military forces.

    Here is some fact based(ie not opinion like you like so much) reading: FactCheck.org : Gun Rhetoric vs. Gun Facts
    Woops? You just argued the exact same thing I've been saying .

    What is a gun show loophole. The last two times I bought a gun at a gun show I had to fill out the paper work and wait 15 minutes for a background check with the NICS.

    Re: NRA Newtown response

    BTW One week ago Adam Lanza killed 27 including himself. The media and many politicians have been insisting we need to make it harder for people like Lanza to obtain weapons. Adam Lanza attempted to purchase a rifle from Dick's the tuesday before he went on his massacre. They turned him away. The system worked yet it failed. The sales person at Dick's should have called the authorities. A red flag at the FBI NICS background check office should have informed local authorities that Lanza was attempting to purchase a weapon. They did not. They share the blame for what happened last Friday. Lanza should have been stopped before he was able to kill.

    At least someone gets my sarcastic point.......

    BTW: For the Record..... I could care less if homosexual people have butt sex or not. It does not affect me.

    Just like guns, of all types, and in whatever magazine capacity they can think of, in the hands of sane people does not affect me.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Current gun laws worked in this instance. When Adam Lanza tried to buy a gun, he was denied. CT Gun Control Laws, which are already some of the strictest on the books didn't magically convince Lanza to not make the decision to commit murder.

    In many states private gun sales are exempt from state and federal regulation.

    people like you don't do a very good job demonstrating your true motivations

    you hate the NRA, not the criminals who spill the blood you anti gun extremists welcome to fuel your jihad against those who don't buy into your far left welfare socialist agenda

    its all about sticking it people who don't agree with you on many issues

    its not about making America safe

    people like you want to use the government to hassle, harass, oppress and probably even kill those who reject your mindset

    that is how the law was for over 150 years. the "loophole" was making dealers do something they had never done until 1968
