    No, Reid got sensible knowing the NRA owns the Republicans but there needs to be a START on common sense results from a mentally ill kid turning 20 children into chunks of meat.

    The loons should withdraw from this issue completely. They look even more effeminate and silly than usual.

    Between estrogen injections, you should read the OP. Reid couldn't even get the Democrats to support the provisions he took out.

    It seems like the democrats really need to connect their messaging, with their actions. This would be a perfect opportunity to change the tone of the gun conversation to something productive and less ideological. Focus first on what will do the most good, with the most about public support. Watch their approval ratings rise, then take another shot at the AWB discussion.

    I highly doubt an AWB could have made it through Congress on '09 or'10 when Dems had vast majorities in both chambers...

    we both agree Reid did good by aborting the assault weapons ban.

    Always the pathetic stance of someone that has no argument...create a boogieman, blame the other side. Ignore the fact that a good number of democrats wont support it, not because they are 'owned' by the NRA but because unlike you they actually (hang on to your hat) LIKE firearms, own firearms, and wont hesitate to say **** you to you or anyone else that wants to ban them. This mindless childish NRA diatribe and eeeevil republicans thin is just idiotic. Have you bothered to gander at the number of self professed liberals and Democrats on THIS SITE that own firearms and arent keen to promote or accept bans? that recognize childish kneejerk legislative efforts are foolish, irresponsible, and wrong?

    "Common sense" is to stop signing away our gun rights to the parasites in Washington DC whose armed private security is purchased at taxpayer expense.

    Me too. I am just saying, if you want to argue the idea, I totally get that. Just don't base your entire argument around it. Do what works, and argue ideology after.

    So all the Sturm und Drang by the boomstick lovers was uncalled for and nobody is going to take their boomsticks away.

    Well, well. More conservative delusions and paranoia exposed, again.
