    Sorry but that is the most irrational statement - so I can see how you missed TD's point.

    That's nothing more than a leftwing lie. The leftwing polls also lied. The Senate vote tells the story, nobody wants your draconian background check.

    LOL....Wrong.....The American people back the President by 90% on this issue. The gun nuts and Republicans are clearly showing how out of touch with most Americans they are...that cannot help their cause in the long run.

    Here in USA Today:

    WASHINGTON -- Four months after the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School, a USA TODAY Poll finds support for a new gun-control law ebbing as prospects for passage on Capitol Hill seem to fade.

    Americans are more narrowly divided on the issue than in recent months, and backing for a bill has slipped below 50%, the poll finds. By 49%-45%, those surveyed favor Congress passing a new gun-control law. In an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll in early April, 55% had backed a stricter gun law, which was down from 61% in February.

    The survey of 1,002 adults was taken Thursday through Sunday by Princeton Survey Research. The margin of error is +/- 4 percentage points.

    In Georgia I have never seen support for new gun control laws. With the passage of time, gun control laws are once again coming out of favor, that is outside the northeast and perhaps the west coast and a few big cities.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I suspect you would say that no matter what the facts are.

    People like you said the same thing to me in the fall of 1994 when the clinton gun ban caused the cost of the 24 round competition magazines I used in OPEN IPSC to go from 35 to 150 dollars

    you all sure got your asses handed to you that november in the midterm elections

    Your the one who left is point and didn't address it. That leaves a clear inescapable conclusion.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    People, in most polls I have seen, want the emphasis to be put on jobs and the economy! Most of the people I have discussed this with seem to wonder why the spotlight is not on enforcing the laws we already have, instead of adding more laws, since it is criminals or mental defectives, and not law-abiding people, who are killing others! Good question, IMO!

    Indeed it is, the people of Georgia are scratching their heads wondering the same thing.
