The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    The strength of the anti-gun lobby in this country pales in comparison to the gun lobby, and if he tries to please the anti-gun lobby he'll have a lot of pro-gun folks on his ass. Ptif you will be allowed to keep your guns, don't worry.

    The incident in Az was not a case of lack of laws, but a case of the current laws needing a simple tweak. Had the Police and the School been able to report his mental state, that might have red flagged him from buying a gun legally. However it would not have PREVENTED him from buying a gun. Does anyone really believe that being denied a pistol purchase would have really stopped this nut job? He would have found another way. Black market gun sales, maybe he would have driven a car into the crowd instead, or made a pipe bomb...

    No "gun control" would have stopped him from acting the way he did. And new laws "aimed at stopping people liek him" aren't really productive, just exercises in political showmanship at the cost of our rights.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Isn't it funny that the same people who want to **** on the 2nd amendment are the same ones trying to say that your just paranoid or that you have nothing to dear.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
