    You are listening to waaay to much of the hysterics coming from your right-wing channels.

    As far as the fairness doctrine. The fairness doctrine didn't try to ban any ideas, exactly the opposite. It was designed to prevent right-wing corporations from buying up all the airwaves and monopolizing the views presented. The idea that the right-wing doesn't or shouldn't own the public airwaves is obviously foreign to you.

    As for Rush Limbaugh....are you really that paranoid that your idol might be taken off the air? Trust me......I don't know about Al Sharpton....but Al sharpton doesn't control the Democratic party and isn't going to get your favorite right-wing propoganda off the air.

    Take a deep breath....its all going to be ok.
    I'm cool. You're the one that asked. Don't start trippin' on me, over a question that you asked. Got it?

    You are seriously going to try to argue that one state.....really one jurisdiction, Chicago is indicative of a nationwide attempt to take your guns away?

    You may not think it's the most awesome thing ever, but it is the law of the land.

    Please either point to where I said it wasn't the law of the land, or stick to responding to what I actually said.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Isn't this an interesting situation we find ourselves in. Can i suggest we look at that particular issue in a different light.

    Generally people living in an urban area want gun control to help with urban violence. For whatever reason, urban dwellers are more ready to accept police protection rather than self protection (whether you wanna admit it or not, this is what gun control is all about). While rural dwellers prefer the idea of self protection, responsibility, and liberty.

    The court ruling you're referring to isn't a gun rights ruling, it's a states' rights ruling. As an advocate of states rights and local control, if a municipality decides they feel safer relying on local police force to aid in protection, shouldn't they be allowed to do that? Why should the federal government infringe on their freedom to decide that? While I personally will never live in an area that won't allow me to protect myself, I could never force others to protect themselves when they decide another solution works for them.

    All that being said 53 people were shot in chicago last father's day. It is obvious that people need to decide in whom to trust their protection because in certain areas of this country there is very little protection at all unless you belong to a gun toting gang.

    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.
