    really, I thought the last time we actually had a conversation (I believe you sort of disappeared for a year or so) you claimed to be going to law school

    I could be mistaken though

    its all so dishonest

    Well they all do things for appearances and to appease their base...but lets be honest here there are many conservatives coming out on the side of gun control also...not just democrats. Now whether they are just playing to their districts I dont know..but there are some being vocal about it in interviews and talk shows

    Re: Gun Control

    An awfully leading question for me. In my opinion, gun control doesn't have the potential for reducing gun violence.

    hard to say what they are doing-the fact remains their desire is not motivated by public safety.

    people who love actors generally have issues with critical thinking. those who support gun control because they actually think gun control (ie limitations on honest people) will prevent those who already violate substantive criminal laws, from violating substantive criminal laws have proven they cannot think rationally

    those who support gun control as crime control while not believing that are dishonest liars

    Ahh, I think some of them really believe that anything is better than nothing and anything will help...I dont think they all have nefarious reasons to be for gun control.

    One thing I've wondered, since he claims it is unconstitutional for policemen to have access to weapons he does not, why he has not sought out an attorney to take his case to court? If that is the slam shut case as he insists, what is he waiting for?
