    Please remember that people will react negatively when others try to interfere with their ability to effectively defend their life and property. You also have to realize that those who seek to interfere with others' peaceful behavior are the aggressors.

    Any person who currently owns a gun will not be affected by any of the legislation currently being discussed or even proposed, if I'm not mistaken.

    What about our posterity? Shouldn't we care about them?

    Exactly. It is a limitation upon my right of expression. That's the point.
    My complaint goes to all infringements. The "limitation" is only for improper (illegal?) expression, not simply expression without a state permit being obtained in advance. If I should commit an actual crime with a gun then, by all means, I should be prosecuted, yet to be said to be committing a "crime" by simply not having rented permission, from the state, in advance to exercise a Constitutional right is insane.

    what bigotry-that's a normal reflection on Kalifornia. I never said it was the armpit of the nation. Lots of California is great. I love the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista California. why aren't you hammering D2 for insulting your state rather than me?

    NIce rant. But as simple as my statement was, you somehow managed to completely misunderstand it then misrepresent what I said. Bravo. Good thing for you that simplemindedness isnt terminal. I would ask you to re-read what I wrote again and try harder to grasp it, but I know it wont do any good. As tempting as it is to tar all liberals with your stupidity, I wont.

Holding events and attacking Obama and the left for attempting to break the 2nd and get around the Constitution. Seems the Anti gunners are attempting to put the Pro Gun Advocates on the defensive.....in defending our Right. This can no longer be tolerated. Time to go on the offensive.

    This means going after Obama for exploiting children and tragedy. Contacting media and Radio and always putting that out there for Obama and the Left to hear, and to keep on hearing. This means attacking them on their attempt to break the Constitution and the 2nd. This means going after those Republicans that are playing defense and looking to compromise the Rights of the people. It also means going after the likes of Bloomberg and other Democrats that are playing that Fence game. The media personalities need to be put in check about playing on all reports of shootings. As they have gone over the edge with it. It can only be countered if people stand up for their Rights and get out there talking. Going after all I said here. We cannot allow people to impose their Rights over ours. Especially when they are the minority.

    In a message traditionally reserved for the president, Francine Wheeler, whose 6-year-old son Ben was among the 20 students and six educators killed at Sandy Hook Elementary last year, delivered the White House’s weekly address today, urging the country to come together to support measures that proponents say will alleviate gun violence.



    “As you’ve probably noticed, I’m not the president. I’m just a citizen. And as a citizen, I’m here at the White House today because I want to make a difference,” Wheeler said. ”I’ve heard people say that the tidal wave of anguish our country felt on 12/14 has receded. But not for us. To us, it feels as if it happened just yesterday.

    “And in the four months since we lost our loved ones, thousands of other Americans have died at the end of a gun. Thousands of other families across the United States are also drowning in our grief. Please help us do something before our tragedy becomes your tragedy.

    After President Obama delivered a speech on gun violence in Connecticut Monday, the Wheelers were among the 11 families who traveled with the president on Air Force One to lobby members of Congress in Washington.

    The Senate voted Thursday in favor of considering a comprehensive gun package, which includes a new bipartisan background check deal brokered by Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., and Pat Toomey, R-Pa.

    The president tweeted out a message Friday urging Americans to listen to the Newtown mother’s message.

    “Francine Wheeler, a Newtown mom, will take my place in tomorrow’s Weekly Address. It’s a message everyone should hear: #NowIsTheTime. -bo,” the president tweeted from the White House account. The signature “-bo” indicates the tweet was written and sent from the president himself.

    Wheeler is the first civilian to deliver the White House’s weekly address

    Typical of the progressive left, anything they can use as the "infallible arguer" they will, then turn on a dime if their political opponent does anything close to the same thing.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    "Ifallible arguer." I like that. But I like "unassailable messenger" just a bit better.
