    Re: W.H. Releases Letters from Little Kids Pleading for Gun Control

    I wonder about all the kids that don't want to see Constitutional rights trampled on and want their teachers and parents to be able to protect them if an evil man with no regard for the law shows up and tries to murder them all. Would Obama share those letters? Maybe I should write my letter as to how a responsible gun owner saved lives with my own being among them.

    assuming most who are on this site are adults, it strikes me that many of these kids have a substantially better reasoning capacity than those who express opposition to any form of gun control

    As I said, I expect the vast majority of these alleged letters were written at the direction of a parent, teacher, or someone else pushing their agenda.
    well, we can be certain the NRA is doing nothing to mobilize opposition to effecting gun controls [/s]


    In any case WTF does a 8-10yo know that we need to hear... most of them don't know real life from Sims 2.
    because they are young does not mean they are stupid
    and based on significant number of the opposition posts in this forum it is obvious just because those posters are of age does not mean they are not stupid

    900 Americans have died in gun violence in the 4 weeks since Newtown. How long till gun lovers see sense?

    Tyrants have killed close to 300 million people in the last 100 years, people who thought govt was there to protect them, and people who could not protect themselves. How long until anti gun crazies start studying history?

    But of course your question is a frame, a set up. What you and the fuzzy thinking anti-gun set are proposing is far from "sense".

    Of those 900 Americans deaths, how many were as a result of criminals using an illegally possessed weapon? That should indicate to you just how much "sense" your proposals make.

    I note he also doesn't distinguish between victims and victimizers.

    (making up numbers here) "57 would-be rapists have been brutally shot by women in the last three months, women who chose to respond to being attacked with of fear and anger rather than through dialogue. When will American women learn that violence is not the answer?"

    It's not. You will note that those of us who wish to protect the President are making conservative arguments - to wit, the presence of good guys with guns reduces the threat of bad guys with guns.

    The populist message adopted by the NRA's recent advertising campaign is too radically liberal and democratic for me.
    you are smarter than this, fiddy. The NRA isn't saying get rid of the secret service. It is saying that the President is our employee, not our master, and as sovereign citizens we retain the same right to protect our children that he rightfully exercises.

    The NRA makes the argument to reduce the protection of the elite because the masses won't be treated to as much, and put it in incredibly democratic terms, acting as if Bush or Obama are in any way in the same position as they are. It's ridiculous democratic trash. I could entirely be critical of gun control efforts, but I wouldn't go so far as to attack the executive branch's deserved level of protection because of it. When Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were having at it in the primaries, both visited this stadium. Now, we have events all the time in there, but never once do I remember going through intense security screenings (or any at all). When they were there, guess what, went through a whole process to gain entrance. What made Obama or Hillary so special that they get this, but the beer festival, no one gives a damn? They aren't the same and should not be treated as such.
