    Obama might be a liberal at heart but he has been anything but a liberal President. The thought of him being a socialist is even more laughable.

    Oh no. You've created a cognitive distortion that could be fatal. I wonder if their prewired programming will be able to overwhelm this attempt to make their circuits melt down.

    This is your Washington working hard for you Americans. Gun control again. Maybe we can dive into the abortion issue next. Maybe a little flag burning debate for a few weeks after that. Anything to take the fickle American people's attention off the real issues that have proven to be too difficult for the elected douches in suits to solve.

    I am a gun owner and recreational shooter and personally I think that guns should have annual registration requirements like vehicles do. People buy guns and then there is no accountability on that gun again to make sure its still in a qualified person's ownership. Many guns end up in criminal hands because criminals use legitimate people to buy their guns and then they pass them on to criminals who use them in crimes. Why not hold people accountable to their firearms every year like we do with their cars?

    Because the last thing this nation needs is more beauracracy to stagnate it. Do you really want a firmearms "DMV?" Imagine what the long lines and administration mistakes will cause people to do. "Postal?"

    Based upon the standard rationale, no one would go postal because everyone there would be packing.

    Well, they would all just pull out and kill the offender. This gun craze is tiring. Protect the flag..."To Abort or Not to Abort".....isn't there an economy issue to deal with?

    If that's what it takes to keep more guns out of the hands of crazies and criminals and ensure they are in law abiding citizens hands, yes. Cut out bureaucracy where its not needed and put some in where it is. Then learn how to spell bureaucracy before complaining that we have too much of it.

    Here is my point on both issues, first back when that was advocated the private citizenry were actually a match for the military as they only had muskets and the such. I don't think our glocks and hunting rifles will do much against jets, tanks, and drones.

    On the Constitution, I think that the Founders, though intelligent men were smart enough to predict all of the issues and technology that there would ever be, that is why they expected generations to shape the country as they needed.
