Dejah: I think some tea kettles would boil over.


This is probably just the Obama administration trolling the hell out of the libertarians, but we should at least consider the possibility that something more insidious is going on.  You're right:  this would really piss off the tea party, and they could conceivably go far enough to justify Obama cracking down with martial law.  I'm not saying it's going to happen that way, but we've got to start thinking like they do before it's too late.

If I were a selfish 1% with a warehouse full of semi-autos and my own private police I'd support a ban too.

I'm cool with only rich people having guns

Good. And when crazy pants people like that yelling dude on cnn decide to retaliate, we can put them away forever and make the world a better place.

If only there were another president in that room when he made that decision.

Alex Jones is gonna be pissed!

I finally saw that clip with him and PM. OMG, that guy is a loud mouthed schnook if I ever heard one!
 
2013-01-09 04:56:25 PM
Damn it! I've been trying to buy an AR-15 for 3 months as my Christmas present to myself. Between the empty shelves and the jacked-up prices, I have been waiting for things to settle down.

This is not helping!

"We are not going to get caught up in the notion that unless we can do everything we're going to do nothing," Biden said. "It's critically important that we act."

Oh, I'm sure you guys will do something...whether it's a horrible abortion of a bill, twisted into worthlessness as a result of misguided desire to compromise and not piss off the nutwing right, is the actual question.
 
2013-01-09 04:56:55 PM
Good. Long overdue.

Suck it, gun nuts.

In b4 gun nuts complain that Obama is somehow conspiring against them.

NOBODY IS TRYING TO TAKE YOUR GUNZ AWAY

President Morsi of Egypt pushed his own agenda through, why shouldn't Obama. It isn't like Obama is an elected official in the country that is supposed to be the poster child for democracy.

Deaths from guns are on pace to surpass traffic deaths in the United States by 2015, according to a Bloomberg News study. In 2011, the latest year for which detailed statistics are available, there were 12,664 murders in the US. Of those, 8,583 were caused by firearms, down 3% from a year earlier."

Hate guns but believe they should be legal.

Cars are safer than they've ever been.Back up cameras, shiat to keep you awake, etc.

What executive order is the dumbass going to pass to stop the other 4000 murders?

A poor person can afford a $1000 AR-15, but $3000 is just out of their price range for good.

Amen. Imagine, someone who could make me root for Pierced Organ!

Don't get me wrong; Piers is still a prick and needs to be forcibly removed from public discourse. It doesn't matter what "side" he "chooses", the guy's a prick. Shut up, prick. Prickprickprickprick.

I believe they're including suicides in that number, though I'd have to look it up to make sure. Not the 13K homicide number, as they'd be excluded. IIRC, the last number was around 30K or so total firearm deaths.

Maybe people are jobless so there is less commuting? People taking less trips because they are tightening the belt?

Alcohol is probably a better analogy than cars. Most people use it for entertainment. Some people have a legitimate need for it. Some people abuse it. Banning it outright would cause more problems than it solves. Counseling for abusers/potential abusers is a better way to address the problems.

time to kick back and watch the crazy roll in

"You can have my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers."

Your proposal is acceptable.

That's cute how you're trying to turn that whole "1%" thing around on liberals.

It's almost as funny as when conservatives call liberals "elitists."  That usually gets a chuckle out of me.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some popcorn to make.

Of course if anything happens to Hobama then Biden becomes el Presidente so he's as safe as a babe in his mother's arms.

For about 400$ you can build a receiver. Then order the upper for a few hundred more. You can't ever sell it but there you go.

Enjoy your rights while you can.

Obama's gotta be trolling. This has been one of the hottest, most emotional issues for the 'baggers lately... he's trying to get their heads to explode.

CSB:

I was checking out gunsamerica.com last night, and two guys were selling the same model of Colt AR that I have....one was priced at $2,500....and the other one was $4,000!!!!

Yeah, to hell with that separation of powers crap. We need a President for Life! Much more efficient.

Yes but alcohol aren't deadly military-style killing machines designed to kill people harder than your average people-killing pistol.

Plus alcohol is my vice of choice, so hands off.
 
2013-01-09 05:04:29 PM
I can understand rifles and pistols but why do people need the big weaponry ie, assault rifles, etc?
