    Pity you're so uninformed. Still.

    These guys are beyond reactionary. They are, in fact, beyond reasonable. They are plugged into the "what??? they aren't me???" haters society.

    This could have been posted on the Joke page because to use Obama's name a Common Sense in the same sentence is laughable.

    Obama knows nothing about commons sense on any subject.

    When Are the Conservatives going ro just state the facts when wackos like Obama attack the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment.

    More guns means safer for and it's overlooked and lied about every time this comes up
    Here is a prime example: Crime up Down Under

    Since Australia banned private ownership of most guns in 1996, crime has risen dramatically on that continent, prompting critics of U.S. gun control efforts to issue new warnings of what life in America could be like if Congress ever bans firearms

    Re: Obama eyes 'common sense' US gun control

    this has nothing to do with Down Under, (which is what Councilman was talking about in his link), it's referring to Washington.

    i support responsible gun ownership, and of course agree with the founding fathers that if they so desire, all Americans have the right to hang a pair of bear arms in their home.

    see, i'm really not that difficult to get along with

    Obama eyes 'common sense' US gun control - Yahoo! News

    WASHINGTON (AFP) President Barack Obama says it's time for US lawmakers to tackle the divisive issue of gun control in hopes of preventing tragedies like the Tucson shooting spree that killed six people.

    In an opinion column published Sunday in the Arizona Daily Star, the main Tucson newspaper, Obama argued that improving the system of background checks on gun purchasers should be the first "common sense" step that neither side of the gun debate should oppose.

    "I know that every time we try to talk about guns, it can reinforce stark divides," Obama wrote in a rare public commentary on the gun control issue.

    "However, I believe that if common sense prevails, we can get beyond wedge issues and stale political debates to find a sensible, intelligent way" to make the nation "a safer, stronger place."

    Tucson was the location of a January 8 shooting spree that killed six people, including a federal judge and a nine-year-old girl.

    US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was among the wounded, shot in the head while holding an open-air political event when alleged gunman Jared Loughner opened fire.

    Following the attack, Americans largely "refrained from finger-pointing, assigning blame or playing politics with other people's pain," Obama wrote.

    "Common sense gun control" has become a favorite phrase among those who wish to increase government controls on guns.

    I'm all for common sense.... the problem is, gun control advocates all too often define "common sense gun control" as "whatever new gun laws we can get for now, as a stepping stone towards banning handguns and assault weapons and eventually everything."

    You always leave the thread whenever your arguments are challenged, so I'm not to concerned about your opinion on any matter.
