    Re: Obama eyes 'common sense' US gun control

    Proof positive that he doesn't want to win a second term.

    I'm all for reasonable gun control... registration, CCW permits, keeping felons from legally owning guns, even licensing to make certain gun owners know how to use their weapons. I don't think every home is entitled to an AK or a street sweeper. However, I'm think Obama would like to go far beyond such "common-sense" niceties, since they are mostly already on the books. About the only thing I would be in favor of that isn't on the books is the private gun-sale/gun-show loopholes.

    Obama has just swatted down a huge hornets' nest, and the hornests are already armed and waiting for him. What a political fruit loop.

    Not that I care who wins in 2012. We've already had 8 years of hell, 2 years of empty mediocrity, and I see no "Never fear, him is here!" on the political horizon. We're pretty much screwed no matter what.

    Some of the restrictions you describe go way beyond common sense. Tell me, what makes your arbitrary restrictions to my civil right to an AK any better than Obama's arbitrary restrictions?

    What part of fundamental right do you anti-gun nuts not understand?

    You obviously don't realize how firmly people who are pro-gun believe in the 2nd Amendment then.

    You honestly think Palin wouldn't get any **** from 2nd amendment advocates if she pushed for the same so called common sense gun control that Obama wants to push?
    "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"

    Other than keeping a weapon out of someone who is actually mentality screwed up there is no such thing as reasonable control. Who are you or anyone else to do decide if we lowly citizens cant have AK-47s? Government thugs can get copies, gang bangers, mobsters can get them but the lowly citizen cant? Why should a man who has served his debt to society get his right to defend himself be taken away from him?

    The part where public safety comes into play. That trumps your second amendment right any day of the week. Why do you think you don't own a tank or a small nuclear device?

    Make sure you license your religion and political views, also.

    Even with said license/registration/training? Wow. What's wrong with an AK?

    WTF is a street sweeper? You mean that truck with a big-ass vacuum on it?

    And the first place the attacks on Palin would show up is via the NRA. They wouldn't stand for even the slightest bit of gun control advocacy from her, nor do they from any politician.
