None of these assholes had a problem with GHW Bush banning import of whole piles of guns by executive order. None of them seem pissed about the increased surveillance and erosion of the 4th and 5th. No, its just guns.

I'd also point out that this jackass has no idea what tyranny really is. Misuse a word long enough and it loses its meaning.
 
2013-01-12 09:39:59 AM
Now, there's a fury in me -- I'm just being honest with you -- that I'm trying to contain. Biden, the moron Senator from Delaware, taking his train back and forth and back and forth on Amtrak. Oh wow, what a guy.

Why do Conservatives hate trains so much?
 
2013-01-12 09:47:13 AM
All this talk of tyranny, at the *idea* the *thought* about discussion. Nothing has happened, no one's lives are different. All the presidents' administrations since at least Nixon have sent guns overseas.

Get over yourself.

Utter fury at trying to keep kids from getting killed for no reason.  Ah, the GOP.

MARK LEVIN: You know folks, I'll be honest with you. I just told a friend of mine -- even though I sit behind this microphone and I try to be civil and so forth -- I can barely contain my fury about what's going on in this country. I'm just being honest with you. I can barely contain it. I'm so frustrated by this tyranny, you have no idea. Now we can analyze it, we can intellectualize it, we can parse it and so forth and try to unravel it. But I'm just telling you, from an emotional point of view, it is just so damned infuriating to see the greatest country on the face of the earth run by a bunch of lilliputians, who are constantly attacking it from within.


where was this 'fury' when the patriot act somehow got passed into law?  where was this fury when the war on drugs destroyed our 4th and 5th amendment rights?  where was this fury when cops beat the snot outta OWS for asking QUESTIONS!?

yeah.  that's what I thought.  STFU.  you aren't furious.  you're a whiny biatch looking for a quick pay day off the fears of disillusioned GOP voters.

Somebody needs to explain to Mr. Levin what fury is. And someone should explain why it's not the best idea that he illustrates how much angrier he is about a hypothetical situation than he is about children being murdered.
 
2013-01-12 12:39:12 PM
That he can barely contain his fury is no surprise to anyone who has listened to Mark Levin's show.

He has this unusual tendency to start a sentence off at normal "inside speaking voice" and then gradually increase it as he gets angrier and more unhinged over time and he doesn't give a crap what anyone WHO DISAGREES WITH HIM SAYS! STUPID LIBERAL!

He does this to pander to the faux-tough guy demographic, and what makes it complete is that he has this nasally-whiny voice that never sells it to me.

Backyard pools kill too many children. No one needs a backyard pool. If we can just save one child from drowning, I would gladly give up my right to have a back yard pool.

Remember when these guys operated in the fringes of late night radio, with guys like Art Bell and EG Marshall's classic reruns of old radio drama's?

Now they are seen as mainstream voices of conservatism. It's really amazing.

To be fair, the second amendment does discuss the right to bear arms.

Anyway, so they may do by executive fiat -- I'm trying to read between the lines -- a national gun database. Now, why would we need a national gun database?


This guy goes apoplectic over the suggestion of a national gun database. But he has no objection whatsoever to Wayne LaPierre's proposal for a national registry for the mentally ill. That's right. Gun advocates call a gun registry "tyranny," but have no problem, none, with a human beings who have committed no crimes registry.

I agree. In fact we should ban all pools because too often they result in random pool attacks where a stranger walks into a school and drowns an entire class.

You people just don't understand. The purpose of the 2nd amendment is to ensure the citizenry have the power to overthrow a tyrannical government. Which is why I hope conservative pundits like Mr. Levin and 2nd amendment lobbing organizations like the NRA will join my crusade to end the prohibition on citizens owning heavy arms like anti-tank missiles and SAMs. After all unless the populace has access to any and all military grade weaponry the true purpose of the 2nd amendment remains unfulfilled. It says the right to bear arms, not the right to bear only small arms.

This kind of crap is why I gave up my NRA membership. They claim to be pro-freedom. But in reality the American gun lobby is full of totalitarians.

Really, it's the same with conservatives in general. Though gun nuts seem to be the most brazenly hypocritical. The only "freedom" they care about is gun rights. But they oppose basically all others.

The founding fathers operated on the same continent within sight of 3 expansionist global superpowers (4 if you count Russia) and made no provisions for as standing army until AFTER the second amendment was ratified.

It seems to me like the people who would most belong on LaPierre's national mentally ill registry are the members of his organization. Especially the ones who still think the NRA has anything to do with gun rights, and isn't just committed to getting Republicans elected regardless of their regard for guns.

Why do Conservatives hate trains so much?

The same reason Authoritarians love them so much. It takes away a peoples independence to travel when and where they want to go. It is a wonderful way to control a population.


I know. Driver's licenses and Pilot's licenses should be declared unconstitutional. If I have the money to get a 747 I should be able to fly it. No way is the government going to restrict my travel independence!

Listen, if you cannot approach the point in the first paragraph and a half of an article, then shut the f*ck up because you have nothing to say.

I hate to say this, but a lot of dems (including myself) agree with what he just said. I hate the "impeach" crap that comes out every few months, but if Obama makes law with his "executive order" then he should be impeached, convicted and thrown the hell out. To use an executive order to strengthen a law is one thing. To override the constitution is another. Enough is enough.

X-boxershorts: Lionel Mandrake: dr_blasto: None of these assholes had a problem with GHW Bush banning import of whole piles of guns by executive order. None of them seem pissed about the increased surveillance and erosion of the 4th and 5th. No, its just guns.

I'd also point out that this jackass has no idea what tyranny really is. Misuse a word long enough and it loses its meaning.Another staunch proponent of gun control:
[encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com image 224x224]
Of course, I mean the actual Ronald Reagan that actually walked the actual earth, not the mythical Exalted St. Ronaldus Magnus that exists only in the mind of "conservatives."

St Ronnie was only supportive of gun control when the Black Panthers were exercising that great 2nd amendment right.

You know, the 2nd only applies to the GOOD 'murrikens...


Actually, he supported it in 1993/94 (Brady Bill and AWB).  Only because he convinced a few (and I mean 2 or 3), did they pass.

But, you may be right, too, because I do know NRA (National Gun Manufacturer's Association) supported a gun control bill (late 60s/early 70s) because the Panthers liked the idea of "protecting" their neighborhoods. with BFGs.

And in one column, all my fears concerning conservatives and the second amendment are crystallized. You want your guns to defend against "tyranny"? Well, if tyranny to you is a barely left of center Democrat (and a conservative Democrat by international standards), then I don't trust you to decide what tyranny is.

Ah Mark Levin, esteemed intellectual elite of the conservative constitutional movement. Uses words like lie-bruls and statist* and socialist and makes up stupid insulting nick names for anyone he disagrees with. Truly a top mind on the right. Oh and he used to push papers in the Reagan administration so Sean Hannity wants to suck his dick every time the two of them get together. He tries to be an independent conservative intellectual who doesn't always agree with everything the GOP does a la Niel Boortz**, but he's just as much of a fox news shill and raving retarded lunatic as Boortz and he makes even Hannity seem cogent most of the time. "THE MEXICANS AND A-RABS AND BLACK FOLK ARE GONNA KILL YOU, TAKE ALL YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY YOU GOT FOR BEING AN INDEPENDENT WORKING WHITE MAN BLESSED BY JESUS AND EVEN WORSE: THEY'RE GOING TAKE YOUR WOMEN TO MISCEGENATE WITH AND HAVE BROWN GAY LIBRUL FOODSTAMP WELFARE STATIST ANCHOR BABIES" is a good summation of his political philosophy.***

*Is statist a word anywhere but in derpville conservative media?
**Not that Boortz is anything other than a Fox News hack with a thin veneer of 'independent thought'
**Hyperbole, a technique used here for comedic effect, he has never gone out and actually said that, but in my past forced listening to his shiatty show (stupid redneck boss at work always had him and Hannity and Rush on during the day) he spent a disproportionate amount of time worrying about non-white folk ruining this nation with their welfare and immigration and voting rights and such.

This sort of free association is one of the few things I love about the modern conservative movement. If there's something liberals like, they can link it to Hitler in 3 steps or less. If there's something that liberals hate, they can come up with 5 defenses of it within a minute. There's some real creativity there.

Weaver95: MARK LEVIN: You know folks, I'll be honest with you. I just told a friend of mine -- even though I sit behind this microphone and I try to be civil and so forth -- I can barely contain my fury about what's going on in this country. I'm just being honest with you. I can barely contain it. I'm so frustrated by this tyranny, you have no idea. Now we can analyze it, we can intellectualize it, we can parse it and so forth and try to unravel it. But I'm just telling you, from an emotional point of view, it is just so damned infuriating to see the greatest country on the face of the earth run by a bunch of lilliputians, who are constantly attacking it from within.


where was this 'fury' when the patriot act somehow got passed into law?  where was this fury when the war on drugs destroyed our 4th and 5th amendment rights?  where was this fury when cops beat the snot outta OWS for asking QUESTIONS!?

yeah.  that's what I thought.  STFU.  you aren't furious.  you're a whiny biatch looking for a quick pay day off the fears of disillusioned GOP voters.


Well, I have nothing to add.

Marcus Aurelius: anindependent: mittromneysdog: Anyway, so they may do by executive fiat -- I'm trying to read between the lines -- a national gun database. Now, why would we need a national gun database?


This guy goes apoplectic over the suggestion of a national gun database. But he has no objection whatsoever to Wayne LaPierre's proposal for a national registry for the mentally ill. That's right. Gun advocates call a gun registry "tyranny," but have no problem, none, with a human beings who have committed no crimes registry.

This kind of crap is why I gave up my NRA membership. They claim to be pro-freedom. But in reality the American gun lobby is full of totalitarians. If any of them really gave the slightest sh*t about freedom, they'd call for LaPierre's removal for making that remark. But they don't. Which makes them hypocrites.

I left when they put Grover Norquist and Bob Barr on the board of directors. When the lobbyists replaced the sportsmen, it jumped the shark.

Threadjacking, and I don't care. I love the MARC trains (Maryland commuter). There's three in the morning from Frederick to DC and three back in the evening. You can live in this sleepy town, and if you work anywhere near the Metro, never have to drive to work, or deal with the rush-hour bullshiat. Study it out, and it's cheaper than driving, and, if you work for the government, they'll even pay for a good part of it. It's awesome.

mittromneysdog: Gun advocates call a gun registry "tyranny," but have no problem, none, with a human beings who have committed no crimes registry.


To be fair, there already is a federal list (and has been for years) of people who have been adjudicated "mentally incompetent" (where that's defined as "danger to self or others" or "unable to manage one's own affairs") and this list is used by the National Instant Check System (NICS) to see if a sale should be denied when they attempt to purchase a firearm.

Of course, one can only be added to the list after due process, so I don't really have a problem with it, just like I don't have any problem with people being convicted of felonies or violent misdemeanors being added to a different list queried by NICS.

I understand the desire to restrict people who are potentially violent (whether mentally ill or not) from being able to acquire firearms, but having a database of everyone who has mental health issues is overreaching and infringes on their rights.

No one rioted when GHW Bush used executive authority to ban a whole pile of firearms. Why care now? No one rioted when Reagan banned open carry in CA to keep black people from walking around with guns, why care now?

Now, why would we need a national gun database? Well, listen, we need to know who has the weapons, at all times, and how many weapons they have and what weapons they have. How come? Why? The guy that killed all those people in Newtown, Connecticut, we know who he was and we know who had the weapons, his mother. So what does this national database have to do with anything? Nothing.

Maybe if there'd been a database that listed that she owned these guns, a red flag would have come up when her son tried to buy firearms (and failed), and someone would have approached her and said, Hey, we know you're having serious problems with your son. Maybe you should remove all those guns from your house and keep them in a locker somewhere, or give them to someone to hold for you, just in case. And maybe, just maybe, if someone had spoken to her, she would have realized that it was stupid of her to keep guns like that in the same place with a person that she was afraid of.

It probably wouldn't happen like that, but what's wrong with a system of knowing who owns the guns? Do guns owners have something to hide? If you're not doing anything wrong......

It's just a farking possession, wingnuts. It's not your gateway to a secret society of Ultra-Men.

More appropriately - what high crime or misdemeanor did he commit?

There's a reason we have courts. There's a reason people have the right to ask the government for a redress of grievances. The constitution itself gives an appropriate way for disagreements as to the scope of government power and constitutional rights to be handled without needing to yell "OMG IMPEACH!"

What's amazing is how he can spend three hours screaming about liberals without ever actually saying a damn thing. He doesn't use facts or provide any insight, he just screams platitudes about tyranny and plugs his book every ten seconds.

cryinoutloud: Maybe if there'd been a database that listed that she owned these guns, a red flag would have come up when her son tried to buy firearms (and failed), and someone would have approached her and said, Hey, we know you're having serious problems with your son. Maybe you should remove all those guns from your house and keep them in a locker somewhere, or give them to someone to hold for you, just in case. And maybe, just maybe, if someone had spoken to her, she would have realized that it was stupid of her to keep guns like that in the same place with a person that she was afraid of.


Well, couldn't such a thing be done whenever someone fails the check anyway, just for good measure? I mean, if you have a convicted felon trying to buy guns from a gun shop, that's probably an indication that they're up to no good and at the very least should get asked a few questions by the police. Same thing for people who fail the background check for other reasons (e.g. for mental health criteria).

There's already registration of firearms and their owners in certain states, including California, and it doesn't seem to have done much good at reducing violent crime. That's not to say it's completely useless, but one needs to measure the cost vs. effectiveness of something like that: the Canadians recently scrapped their long-gun registry because the costs of maintaining it were not worth what little benefits they got from it.

Once, my wife and her travel agent decided to have a little fun at my expense, and booked my flight under the name "S. Muffin." (The joke, of course, was that the Soviet stood for "Stud." I flew from Cleveland to Seattle via Chicago, with airline staff calling me "Mr. Muffin" every time I had to produce my boarding pass. I didn't really enjoy that flight.

This guy goes apoplectic over the suggestion of a national gun database. But he has no objection whatsoever to Wayne LaPierre's proposal for a national registry for the mentally ill. That's right. Gun advocates call a gun registry "tyranny," but have no problem, none, with a human beings who have committed no crimes registry.

This kind of crap is why I gave up my NRA membership. They claim to be pro-freedom. But in reality the American gun lobby is full of totalitarians. If any of them really gave the slightest sh*t about freedom, they'd call for LaPierre's removal for making that remark. But they don't. Which makes them hypocrites.

Really, it's the same with conservatives in general. Though gun nuts seem to be the most brazenly hypocritical. The only "freedom" they care about is gun rights. But they oppose basically all others.

It seems to me like the people who would most belong on LaPierre's national mentally ill registry are the members of his organization. Especially the ones who still think the NRA has anything to do with gun rights, and isn't just committed to getting Republicans elected regardless of their regard for guns.


Now now, don't be part of the problem. The NRA also cares about helping gun manufacturers and ammo manufacturers make a profit.
 
2013-01-12 01:51:51 PM
It's fascinating that so many of the people who believe that the 2nd amendment is inviolate and means that virtually no burden of any type can be put on gun ownership were the same people who spent the past 12 years saying things like:

The constitution is not a suicide pact.

Not anti-war, but on the other side.

Your kid that gets murdered by a suicide bomber will be sure to admire your passion for the 4th and 5th amendments.

Strict constitutionalist means shouting the 2nd and 10th amendments at the top of your lungs and ignoring the rest, apparently.

I forgot to add how during the 2008 election cycle he would always refer to Obama as Barrack HUSSEIN Obama like his middle name made him a terrorist or something. Like really over emphasizing the Hussein. Like it was a curse word or something. Was bizarre. Like the dude got his name as part of a kenyan muslin conspiracy as a code word for sharia law and not from his parents who actually named him the way most normal people get named, not foreseeing that instead of a common harmless traditional Arabic name, and also his father's middle name, that instead it would be seen as a reference to terrorism by xenophobic retards who think any muslin sounding word must mean something nefarious.

He's giving a sermon, after every crescendo of sound and fury to make his audience panic about Obama he suddenly switches into a calming voice where he explains how he has a path that will save them from the impending doom. It's exactly like a preacher giving a fire and brimstone sermon and then explaining how Jesus offers a path to salvation if only they will take up the righteous path.

...My brain just went straight to that moment in X-Men 1 where Senator Kelly starts reading off a list of mutants stupid enough to register.

I seriously wanted Jean Grey to talk over him and just go "Senator Kelly, you do realize those families can now sue you for putting them in danger thanks to you exposing that they're on a list that, presumably, is not located on the Fort Knox of computers, right?". Because I think that would probably lead to one of the most epic lawsuits ever. Especially if it involved minors.

If you come up with the best plan you could to try to save innocent life and ensure good people can exercise their right to choose how to protect themselves and innocents will still die. We allow cars to go faster than the speed limit and innocents die. We allow bars to serve more than enough liquor to intoxicate a person and drunk driving deaths and abuse happens. If you were king of the world what would your policy be?

...and remember, both Reagan and Brady were Republican leaders in 1980. Now Brady is the libbiest lib who ever lived, and they have to make St. Reagan of Republica to deny the fact that Reagan would be a RINO today.


Imaginary right-wing derptastic Reagan would SO kick the absolute crap out of reality-based, tax increase, compromise Reagan.

born_yesterday: He's a font of misplaced rage. Name your cliché; Mother held him too much or not enough, last picked at kickball, late night sneaky uncle, whatever. Now he's so angry, moments of levity actually cause him pain; gives him headaches. Happiness, for that gentleman, hurts.


His nickname for himself kills me, too. He actually refers to himself as "The Great One." It's part of his intro music, and he has all his guests call him that too. I know being a right wing radio jockey means that you have to constantly convey bravado and fellate yourself over your own wisdom and greatness, but it cracks me up whenever the self described "Great One" goes on a rant about how Obama is so arrogant and egomaniacal.

Right wing radio is so much funnier when you realize that it's all just projection. Just a bunch of insecure man-children pretending everything they hate about themselves is actually somebody else's problem.

Why do Conservatives hate trains so much?

The same reason Authoritarians love them so much. It takes away a peoples independence to travel when and where they want to go. It is a wonderful way to control a population.


I'm just trying to imagine what the economy of New York City would be like without the Metro-North, Long Island Railroad, and PATH trains. Meh, it probably wouldn't make much of a difference, and I'm sure the rest of the country probably wouldn't notice if something bad happened in New York City.

This guy goes apoplectic over the suggestion of a national gun database. But he has no objection whatsoever to Wayne LaPierre's proposal for a national registry for the mentally ill. That's right. Gun advocates call a gun registry "tyranny," but have no problem, none, with a human beings who have committed no crimes registry.

Don't forget the proposed national database of women who have had abortions.

Bill Cunningham, host of "the Great American." He's even derpier and more obscure than Mark Levin, and he's the one who tells every caller that agrees with him "You are a great American." I tuned into his show once last year and he was still herping and derping about birth certificates.

People who don't herp and derp about birth certificates apparently are not great Americans.

I know who that jerk is, but I've never heard his show.

Hannity used to say that, but maybe he stopped.  I used to listen to Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh for long stretches when a former job had me on the road a lot.  No matter what backwoods bum-fark Egypt podunk little shiathole you're in or near, there is ALWAYS a station strongly and clearly broadcasting one of those asshats.

And we concede more ground to evil because free speech doesn't have a toyline made by powerful backers.

Yes, evil. Yes, you. If you are arguing against any sort of improvements to gun control and are even against restricting the size of magazines, you are evil. If you're arguing that violent video games are the problem, you're either even more evil, extraordinarily stupid, intellectually dishonest to a stunning degree, or possibly all three. If you're just posting these things because somebody pays you to, you are in the service of evil and children will continue to die because you are aiding evil.

This kind of crap is why I gave up my NRA membership. They claim to be pro-freedom. But in reality the American gun lobby is full of totalitarians. If any of them really gave the slightest sh*t about freedom, they'd call for LaPierre's removal for making that remark. But they don't. Which makes them hypocrites.

I left when they put Grover Norquist and Bob Barr on the board of directors. When the lobbyists replaced the sportsmen, it jumped the shark.

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The remaining rights are legislated and applied to citizens (and residents) of the United States and their extent and application is constantly re-interpreted and limited or expanded through the legislative and judicial process. The 2nd amendment rights are among this group.

You know I'm not really that old, just shy of 30. But I never thought in my life that democrats would actually be the party of consistency. And by no means are democrats in lockstep on various issues. But at least most individuals on the left in this country base their views on the facts and the context of an event. Those views don't change based which way the wind is blowing. On the right it seems like positions are based more on what the proposition of the other side is and how can we differentiate our selves from it.


Republicans are basically contrarians whenever the other side is in power. The specific issue does not really matter anymore. Things they vehemently supported just a few years ago are now terrible godless socialist ideas.

Fluorescent Testicle: You know what really shiats me about this whole "OBAMMY GAWN' TAKE MAH' GUNS" thing? If Obama ever was moronic enough to ban guns (background checks and minor restrictions not bans), I'd be pretty much on their side, sans all the racism. But... No. Nothing has happened; Obama's only expanded gun rights so far. This whole motherfarking fiasco is completely in their heads. Haven't they ever heard of "The boy who cried wolf," or perhaps "Thorazine"?

...In fact, it's the Republican Party that's held back expansion of gun rights in some instances. I'll say it again, see the Sportsmen's Act. And it was for a petty reason, if you believe their line that it was because the duck stamp cost too much, or a partisan one, if you believe that they really killed it because a Democrat wrote and proposed it.

There are only 3 inalienable rights.

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The remaining rights are legislated and applied to citizens (and residents) of the United States and their extent and application is constantly re-interpreted and limited or expanded through the legislative and judicial process. The 2nd amendment rights are among this group.

Backyard pools kill too many children. No one needs a backyard pool. If we can just save one child from drowning, I would gladly give up my right to have a back yard pool.


Stupid hyperbolic argument is stupid.

We have backyard pools here, but we have laws that state that they need to be enclosed so that children don't accidently fall into them and drown.

We have cars, but we have laws about how fast you can go and how you can drive them (and not drinking while driving) so that people are not needlessly killed.

Whilst doubtlessly a gun ban is the most effective way to reduce gun violence, what is being discussed is merely regulation, like the above examples, in order to reduce gun violence.

This is sensible. Your inability to see this makes you a moron. Good luck with that, and in life in general.

I have a theory about this. These people are not, generally, intellectuals. The 2nd amendment is easy for them to understand, it's very concrete- "I get a gun." The 4th and 5th amendments are incredibly abstract and require an huge amount of nuance to interpret. So they just ignore them. Plus, these people never see themselves as lawbreakers, so why should they care about due process (until they get caught doing something, then they come whining to a lawyer just like everyone else).

It is my opinion that the Second Amendment- that an armed, civilian populus, is a vital check against the threat of tyranny. The possibility of an armed revolution is a large part of what allows us to keep our regularly scheduled, peaceful revolutions relatively honest.

That being said, I have no objection to a database of registered gun owners. I wouldn't oppose a Judge Dread style system that tags any bullet fired with the DNA of the person who pulled the trigger, and the serial number of the weapon used to fire it. I don't think there should be restrictions on ownership of firearms, but I don't have a rational argument against firearm ownership / possession being tracked.

I don't oppose registration and tracking of of cars or nuclear weapons either, for much the same reason: They are all, to varying degrees, devices that allow a single party to infringe upon the rights* of many others without those others' consent.

*simple, basic rights, such as the right to not be murdered, vehicular manslaughtered, or atomized in a nuclear explosion.

You do understand that, based on what's in the U.S. constitution, it matters what's in the executive order? That importation of guns is clearly a federal matter, whereas many other laws are left to the state's, or may be unconstitutional no matter who passes them.

I find myself thinking about the "but then the government will be able to round me up" argument against a firearms registration database, and it occurs to me that, given that we live in The Future now, it's no longer plausable. Because of cell phones and the internet, there's instantanious communication between people all over the country1. If the government did decide to "round up" all the gun owners2, the first one who has his door kicked in is going to be communicating to his associates that this is happening, giving each of them a head start on defending themselves, making the "rounding up" more difficult, if not flat impossible. It's the same as when the police conduct a raid on a target with a capacity / propensity towards violence, coordinating movements and aspects of the raid to maintain the element of surprise as long as possible. The police will execute timed raids on multiple drug houses in a network similtaniously.3, so no target can warn any others. The larger the group being targeted, the larger the force targeting them needs to be, while still maintaining that same level of coordination.

When it comes to gun owners, or even just NRA members4 that's quite a large group of targets. The size of the force that would be required to execute similtanious raids on all those persons is simply too large for the attacks to be coordinated with precision, or for it to be arranged in absolute secrecy from any target, or anyone who might simply inform any target.

It's as absurd a propasition as that one that explosives had been secretely installed inside the walls of the World Trade Center. Too many people would have had to have to be in on it.


1. And indeed, the world, but that is beyond the scope of the current discussion
2. Or those who populate any national scale database or list
3. An assessment of tactics, not an endorsement of policy
4. And does anybody really think the goverment doesn't already have a copy of that database?

The three you list aren't enumerated in the Constitution either. That quote is from the Declaration of Independence, which is not actually a legislative or governing work. The Declaration makes no legally binding protection of these rights, nor does it actively exclude protection from all but the three so named.

Which still doesn't change the fact that you stated "only three" when the very document you were referring to states that the enumerated three are not the entirety, or "only"

Yeah, I understand that. My point is the fact there were no calls for civil war when that happened; it is party affiliation. Firearm restrictions put in place by Republicans don't raise the ire, even if they are equivalently bad as the Democratic legislation.

Of course the pool comment was to make a point, sort of a devil's advocate point of view. You can't tell I'm a moron based on that alone.

Hate to tell you this, you're already in a bunch of databases. Social Security, the DMV is you own a car. The point being, when someone gets shot, we should be able to figure out who owned the gun and how it ended up in the hands of the ultimate perp. It would be a way of fighting the black market and effectively catching criminals (both shooters and those circumventing current legislation about gun sales).
