    So as long as they use a bomb or a knife, you're ok with that. Got it.

    I think you are in the wrong thread, this is a non drug induced thread

    No one yet has disproved that public support.
    And that is the point, imo.

    Every large poll I have seen says the public overwhelmingly want this.

    I could care less what the majority of CBS and New York times viewers and readers believe.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    All the national polls show the same thing, which is why none of the far right on this forum has been a able to produce a single poll that says otherwise.

    Look at the top of this page.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    You know what? After thinking about it for a while, I can't think of any reason why there shouldn't be a background check for all firearm purchases. It covers the ass of the seller (most private sellers will run a background check anyway), it will end the incessant bitching over gun shows, and it makes it just that much more difficult for the wrong people to get guns, while doing absolutely nothing to prohibit law abiding citizens from acquiring firearms.

    So **** it, do the damn thing. It does more good than harm.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
