    That sounds like a threat to me, sounds to me like "Do what we say or we'll do worse."
    its sort of like the rant that if the rich don't agree to more and more taxes, the masses will rape and pillage.

    Gun control gets unlikely backers in Congress; WH says Obama to make it second-term priority

    Monday, December 17, 2012

    "WASHINGTON - Prominent gun-rights advocates in Congress are now calling for a national discussion about restrictions to curb gun violence, signaling that the horrific shooting at a Connecticut elementary school could be a tipping point in a debate that has been dormant for years.

    "Everything should be on the table," West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin declared Monday. He is a conservative Democrat, avid hunter and lifelong member of the National Rifle Association. Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa proposed a debate not just about guns but also about mental issues."

    "This time, the president has vowed to use "whatever power this office holds" to safeguard the nation's children against gun violence, suggesting he may put political muscle behind an assault weapons ban. He has long supported reinstating the ban, which expired in 2004, but never pressed for in his first term. Liberal Democrats on Capitol Hill are already laying the groundwork for legislation to outlaw the military-style arms."

    "Virginia's Mark Warner, one of the few Senate Democrats who has found favour with gun rights groups, reversed course to back restrictions on assault weapons.

    "The status quo is not acceptable anymore," he said.Virginia's Mark Warner, one of the few Senate Democrats who has found favor with gun rights groups, reversed course to back restrictions on assault weapons.

    its amazing how many of the Obama slurpers attacked me for saying that Obama is anti gun and would try to instigate attacks on gun owners if he got a second term.

    oh well 20 years after 1994 would be a good time for a major ass kicking of gun haters in congress-especially now that the supreme court's ruling in heller is going to make it tough for lower courts (which they could do pre heller) to find that bans are acceptable

    Most likely an editorial by someone who loves a good conspiracy.

    If that makes you feel better. But frankly, there is much less need for one today.

    Nice hysterics there Mr TurtleDude, but the article mentions nothing about attacks on gun owners.

    Gun rights are not dependent on need, but only the existence of the constitutional right to own firearms.

    I agree, but I would not call it a constitutional right. It is a human right, which we would still have even if there were no constitution.

    its funny how the anti gun groups work

    some scream for bans, and the others merely demand "reasonable controls" made to look more reasonable by the extremism of their fellow travelers. others call those of us who note what the gun haters are up to "paranoid" or worse. Its common for the gun haters to say that no one wants to take your guns or that "registration" is not confiscation. Too bad for you we understand history.

    that is funny given how many of your fellow travelers complain about all the murders in this country. and with more technology, the power of the state continues to grow. I understand you see that as a positive development.
