"NAMBLA has members, contributors, and supporters in Pennsylvania who expect us to do our jobs and keep them abreast of developments on the legislative front in their state," Kid E. Diddler, NAMBLA's director of public affairs, said in a statement about the calls. "We can be just as tone deaf in Happy Valley as the NRA is in Newtown."

I happen to own what most people would regard as an excessive number of large caliber and capacity and rate of fire weapons.  My wife got a call a couple weeks ago from the NRA telling her that Obama was going to take my guns away.  She was like, "Thank God".

They hung up like scalded rats for some reason.

Would the NRA be upset at this phrases in response:

"Praise Allah. We need high capacity rounds to defend ourselves from these crazy Christians".

"Now we can safely go to Mosque and if a fat white man tries to accost our children, we can shoot him 30 times per each of our guns and all within 10 seconds."

"Can you send some large NRA banners? We could display them on the roadside of our homes and Mosques".

LordJiro: pedrop357: JolobinSmokin: Good for them, gun owners are an oppressed group of ppl

If what's done to the 2nd amendment were done to any other enumerated or unenumerated right, the people wishing to exercise those rights would consider it oppression.

Yep, NO right is restricted in any way! That argument is in no way absolute bullshiat.

Gun nuts would be taken a little more seriously if they'd pull themselves off their goddamn crosses. For TOUGH MANLY SHOOTIN MEN, they do seem like a bunch of whiny pussies.


No right is as restricted as the right to bear arms

whidbey: GUTSU: As we all know home invasions, muggings, and rapes NEVER happen, EVER

So what's the big deal? Keep something at home to protect yourself.    Overcompensating with a basement arsenal isn't necessary. And yeah, we have the right as a society to make such a determination.


Please, tell me how many guns is an "arsenal." Do muzzleloaders count? .22's, lever actions, bolt action, break action, semi-automatics, shotguns, do those count? Why does society get to decide how much personal property I, as a law abiding citizen can own?

The Name: pedrop357: The Name: pedrop357: The existing laws cover the behavior and don't stop it, so let's add a second law that will have the same noneffect?

So we already have mandatory universal background checks for all sales and transfers, with stiff penalties for noncompliance?

We have laws about straw purchases (which is where most guns used in crime come from), and laws about transferring to people known to be felons and they have stiff penalties.

Oh, well we should do the thing I suggested.


Which thing should we do?

pedrop357:  The whole purpose of the 2nd amendment is that that general public had the right to the same arms that would be used by the militia.

Que?  A militia would have been made up of the general public.  "We will insure that John Smith has access to the same weapon that John Smith has access to" would have to be the lamest Amendment ever.

pedrop357: The "well regulated" portion does not restrict or confine the right to bear arms and you know it. "Well regulated" was used differently then compared to now and applied to the composition and training of the militia. You have to know that too.


So you're arguing for a "living" constitution?  How Liberal of you!

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

But now that the U.S. has its own army, the militia is no longer needed, so no more guns for you. Please head down to your local recycling center and turn them all in and you get a free cookie.
But if you don't want to tun them in, President Obama is setting up some "freedom lover" communes in a couple of States that will take your guns as soon as you enter. I think 'Citidel' was the name of one of them.

/Glory be to Glenn Beckistani.

BeowulfSmith: Boo farking hoo. So, the civil rights group the focuses on protecting the Second Amendment is trying to rally support to oppose legislation that is in direct violation of the amendment their entire organization was founded to protect? Those monsters.

Seriously, this is the most ridiculous grandstanding I have ever seen on the parts of these politicians and on the parts of a good portion of the comments above. You think there are no gun rights supporters in Connecticut? That because this tragedy happened, magically every person in Connecticut who doesn't agree with further gun bans lose their rights to hear an opposing view point? That the NRA and their state affiliates lose their rights of free speech?

Feel free to disagree with the statements made by the NRA. Feel free to donate money to politicians and political groups that oppose the NRA. But don't you dare suggest that we should be silencing people because you've decided their political speech is distasteful. There is literally nothing more un-American than that (well, I suppose other than, you know, throwing people into concentration camps because of their ethnicity, like FDR did, or depriving people of their civil liberties, like most of the South did under Jim Crow... two excellent examples of why giving the government more power often doesn't have positive effects for the general populace).

So, get your panties unbunched and get off your ass and do something the right way for once. Campaign to pass an amendment to the Constitution nullifying the Second Amendment once and for all, so then you can pass whatever restrictions or outright bans you want. Until then, quit using the bully pulpit to push for unconstitutional limitations to American civil liberties. Whether you agree with them or not, they exist. The more you weaken them, the less protection everyone has against government intrusion into our lives (PATRIOT Act, for example).


They don't focus on protecting the second amendment... they focus on idiocy, stopping background checks, donating money to ALEC to fight against gay marriage and for lower corporate income taxes... the idea that the NRA is about gun rights is about as naive as thinking NAMBLA is about love, not rape.

Town residents say the automated calls from the NRA began last week and urge people to tell their state legislators to oppose gun control proposals.

Just what realistic purpose does an automated calling machine have in modern America? Why the hell does anyone need to be able to place calls as fast as the machine can dial? This shiat is frightening. What, one call a day isn't enough? Their penis so small that they need to compensate with these "robocalls?" Look, they love their high calling capacity so much that they fetishize it with some mechanical name. Disgusting.

firefly212: That said, you'd have to be one of those mental patients to not see that selling guns without background checks is just nuts... the idea that you could quite literally sell guns out of your trunk in person to person transactions with no paperwork at all... and that it is legal in many places, that should anger the fark out of any responsible gun owner.


Congratulations. According to the NRA, you're a gun grabber.
