I'm tired of kids getting their parents' guns and killing other children with them.
    Better, also require publishing the address and name of everyone who does not have a gun - plus pictures of those people would be nice - and require a sign on their residential doors reading "NO FIREARMS PRESENT." Pictures of the people of those homes would make shopping for women, children and the elderly more efficient.

    As I often have said, Obama has totally obliterated and reversed what it meant to be "liberal." Liberals used to strongly support privacy rights. Now - for Obama and Democrats - liberals rage against personal privacy in relation to the government. Traditional liberally is reversed, dead and buried for all practical purposes in the USA. It has been replaced with Corporate and governmental fascism.

    OK, then.
    I don't believe I've made any photo-ops or robocalls for my personal actions to be relevant.

    If obama sticks his head in bucket of goat manure and then the NRA's dog pees on a hydrant, I'm going to likewise think the NRA is the lesser to 2 evils.

    Yes.

    It's okay for parents who lost their children to gun violence to join with politicians who support stricter background checks.

    You think the President and Governor have mind control powers?


    You don't see how pathetically bad your analogy is?

    3. It would ensure that many others would do the same thing.
    4. It would likely get a lot of people killed when they came to try and steal firearms from people on that public list.
    We already know all about the bluff and bluster, what will really be the case remains to be seen.

    Actually when the 'list' was posted in NY State there were 170 burglaries, only 2, two, dos, were on that list. no one died.

    Do YOU know what it would do???

    Article is here.
    I don't really see what the big deal is.

    I listened to the video and I don't see anything that constitutes being "a ****ing douche bag about it".

    I don't think they were duped, but rather just finished burying their or their neighbor's 1st grade children, 20 in total, along with a half dozen teachers/school workers.

    I am a member of the NRA, mostly so I can sign off as a witness on targets at the range, and I think the effort to influence Newtown with soulless robocalls is counterproductive.

    I have always thought the exercise of a 'right' needs to be done in a thoughtful. responsible manner. I can keep and Bear, but in a responsible manner. Seems to me the NRA has lost sight of the human side of the debate and that could prove problematic.

    This might be minutely credible, if you showed just the slightest same false compassion for much larger #'s happening all over, especially strict gun control Chicago or Ca.

    Deflection? REALLY??? Stick to the people and place YOU say were duped. My compassion isn't the issue- YOU claiming the parents of mass murdered kids were somehow duped into appearing at 'gun' control rallies and speeches is. FOCUS!

    Shall we have a daily compassion list for everyone killed by firearms- the Radical Right would scream like wet hens!

    I tell you what, when the NRA starts robocalling the parents and neighbors of school children murdered in Chicago I'll show my compassion by calling the leadership of the NRA farging bastages.

    Right! It was there idea They begged to have Obama surround himself with children. It is sickening you think it is only okay for anti-gun people to dance around on top of these kids and no one else is allowed to have a say. Especially when their message only they are allowed to push would not have done anything to prevent it or any new one. I can see right through the anti-gun bull**** - it's not about the kids!

    the "responsible manner" of gun owners should be to secure their weapons and not kill people. It's ironic...I get that you are a gun owner...down with the homies on the 2 A and all that. And yet...when politicians seize on a tragedy as an opportunity to attack the gun rights of 120million based on the irresponsible actions of a few, your scorn is not for those that would attack individuals rights but rather those that oppose those attacks???
