    I didn't read the whole thread but did anyone support the President for doing this? If they did I have one word for you. Disgusting, and I'll add another word. Un-American!

    I just watched the actual video for the first time.

    I had to stop after 10 seconds I wanted to vomit.

    Such shameful exploitative garbage.

    I suspect most of the people who find this "exploitative" "disgusting" etc. probably do so not because of what happened, but rather because of what the issue is. My guess is if this woman was making the address to encourage awareness (and/or additional funding) about breast cancer because her sister died from cancer, most of you would not care. I cannot prove this in anyway, but it's my suspicion.

    Do you there is a difference as to what is being forced upon all others as opposed to asking help from others?

    I'm not a gun owner and I have no problem with universal background checks, even an assault weapons ban.

    But I know political exploitation when I see it, and I wouldn't lack the integrity to overlook it on a stance I happen to agree with.

    It's your turn--care to call it like it is?

    You really need to read up on history.

    Your statement really holds no relevance to what I said. A situation such as you described is not something which will be stopped by a private citizen purchasing a legal firearm, but rather a coordinated effort amongst city, state and federal law enforcement.

    Let's try and keep the discussion to the topic and not rely on extremes.
    Actually not true. I have a gang problem in my city and county. Which is why its relevant. I have already had deal with these thugs several times now, hence why I INSIST on being VERY well armed. Some of the weapons I have California has banned. I had them before the ban. I have high capacity magazines also banned. But I have them anyway. I have special ammunition to deal with MS-13 and others like them because they like to wear bullet resistant vests. Its the prime reason I prefer large caliber heavy hitting higher velocity rounds. The sheriffs out here cant be everywhere and can take up 15 20 minutes to get here, by which time my problem will have resolved one way or another. There's still no patrol and no fed help out here. I am on my own. I am going to be damn if I will allow ANYONE to disarm me, especially in light of current ongoing threats. Your gun ban hasn't done **** to deter any of these gang bang thug punks from obtaining FULLY automatic weapons let alone pistols and semi auto rifles and carbines that LAW abiding citizens are RESTRICTED to. I aint try to solve a problem I am trying to keep my clan safe because quite frankly the local law enforcement seems to have other fish to fry.

    California has had universal checks except for direct family linage for some time now.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    there are no such things as a check or even a capital sentence law that will accomplish that. you labor under the delusion that if legal avenues for buying guns are blocked, criminals won't get guns

    ever spend say 5 seconds studying the war on drugs or prohibition

    you'd be wrong. Carlos Hathcock with a bolt action rifle killed a score of NVA armed with fully automatic assault rifles. speed is nice but accuracy is fatal
