    Good afternoon dns. I hadn't noticed you around here before. I'm sure you'll be watching the A-Day this weekend...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Can you define, in short and concise terms, just who is/will be placed onto the federal "no gun" list used for NICS BG checks? Will it include any current "legal" gun owners? My objection to "the list" is that two citizens, convicted of exactly the same criminal offense(s) may well have gotten different sentences, thus one gets "no gun for life" added to that (decades old?) DWI/marijuana possession sentence well after the chance of appealing that conviction has passed.

    No, but the attempt to curtail gun ownership happens to be a very slippery slope.

    It doesn't make a person a coward to tread all over the rights of citizens.

    BTW, it is not the NRA! The NRA is just an instrument we who wish to continue privately own our firearms use to fend off the paranoid gun control nuts.

    All I can say is, relative to gun control, I am very glad the GOP controls the house and also that we even have a few sane democrats (I am a democrat) who chose to tell Obama to go pedal his progressiveness elsewhere.

    Wrong! One of the things that IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT ABOUT THIS COUNTRY is the ability for people to get together to prevent the government from removing our rights. The NRA is doing our bidding, not the other way around. I keep my dues up to date.

    part of the incremental strategy of banning guns is for gun haters to only support the "NEXT REASONABLE STEP"

    I suspect when people like me complained about the NYS limitations years ago, you denied that a ten round limit was a stepping stone to 7 round limits

    guess what-no one believes you or those who make such claims anymore. We have seen too many politicians demand more and more restrictions every time they can find enough blood to oil the path towards confiscation
    Correct! It is called incrementalism.Daily Kos: How to Ban Guns: A step by step, long term process
