    change what before the triggers on the empty gun goes off? They will just wait and act like it did, click, click click... There will be a few suit cases of cash exchanged on some deals, American tax payers will get kick in the gut again; politicians get their money everyone's happy!

    Yes I am glad Obama had those automatic cuts strctured into the deficit cutting process.

    At least that way, he has ensured that deficit cutting will continue and keep the country operating... something that the republicans would hate to see as it affects their chances for White House 2012.

    Congress let the train go when they had a chance to stop it at the station. It's heading down hill and they need to let it roll on!

    It's time Americans - not lying dog, self serving, lobbyist funded, low life, scum sucking, **** heeled politicos - be forced to man up and participate in their own governance! IF we are a Democratic Republic then WE, ALL OF US, are responsible to each other and the nation as a whole. Americans must step up and choose their own economic destiny. We must stop depending on suckers, dummies, fools and whores in Washington. It is our OWN responsibility to make informed decisions for the good or the nation. Or, we can remain sucktards of our own ignorance and inability to act. If an imminent crash is what it takes, so be it.

    This whole thing was a Republican idea, I say make them actually follow through with the spending cuts they threatened. Between the spending cuts to the military/industrial complex and letting the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy expire next year should be a good start in the direction we need to go.

    ... in which case, those 12 individuals will serve as the sacrificial lambs that their colleagues blame the cuts on when they happen.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    some/most of the cuts aren't actually cuts... they are decreases in budget growth.

    in other words, spending will still increase, just at a lower rate.

    the whole thing was a Republican idea?...what?

    the DOD will spend more on the next budget than it did on the last budget... even with the "cuts" taking place

    the congressional definition of "cut" is different from ours.
    if they spend 5 bucks this year, and want to spend 10 bucks next year, they will consider it a "cut" to spend 7 bucks.

    Automatic triggers are fine from most assault rifles, but the barrels of most hunting rifles were not made to withstand the heat generated from firing rounds in rapid succession. Even a few 3-round bursts would permanently warp and ruin an otherwise quality sport rifle.

    If the trigger is binding it may be due to dirt, as a trigger will topically fail to engage the firing pin if it malfunctions. If you're experiencing a run-away weapon, that may be due to over heating the barrel with a lot of shots, with will cause the barrel to "cook off" every round that is locked in it. If you're using a belt-fed weapon you can try and brake the links, otherwise just point the weapon in a safe direction down range and let it run the ammo out.

    i give them credit for at least making an attempt to hold them accountable. if memory serves correctly it was the republicans that wanted a balanced budget amendment to make sure they do their jobs and the democrats wouldnt agree to it
