    Is this how Clay views all gun owners?

    Although I find the cartoon over the top for credibility, it did remind me of another cartoon today (Arial) on this subject. Mayor Bloomberg and his mayors anti gun lobby have been having problems shaming democratic politicians with their advertising campaign. More than one have responded with a similar statement as an Arkansas senator (Pryor). "“I don’t take gun advice from the mayor of New York City. I listen to Arkansans.” Such is the plight of several other democratic senators who are actually under great pressure from their conservative constituents to vote against this legislation, contrary to the position taken by the democratic party. Is it possible they are actually representing the will of their people and not bowing to powerful lobbyists?
    When one looks objectively at the states in question it shouldn’t be too surprising. They are primarily rural and despite political affiliation are strong gun owning and hunting areas.
    But speaking of lobbying, our beloved president is going off on another campaign style swing to promote the gun legislation, giving uplifting speeches and wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on his favorite activity, road trips…

    It’s kinda scary to think it’s harder in some states to get a license to be a barber or a hairdresser then it is to get a permit to own a gun…

    No. Just the ones that like the Virginia Tech, Columbine, and the theatre massacre gun owners who did not have any criminal history what-so-ever.

    No. Polls indicate that the majority of NRA members - yes, you read that right — do not agree with Wayne LaPierre, and favor stricter gun controls, background checks, and more limited access.

    That has to be the stupidest thing I have read today.
    70 or 80 year old people have to come up with birth certificates to vote, but I could walk into a gun show and buy anything I want without ever showing an ID.
    That’s why I hate Republicans.

    “That’s why I hate Republicans.”

    48.6% of 121,745,725 voters voted Republican in the last election. I find it difficult to believe that anyone could hate that many of his fellow voters.

    @motivemagus

    What you say may very well be true. I think what many also have in the back of their minds is the 2014 elections. People have a tendency to have short memories and these guys may not want to risk being on the “wrong side” of an issue down the road, particularly if they are from a state with a predominantly rural population. We shall see, the senate is back on April 8th.
    Although it’s not national in scope, many states are putting their own A.R. and magazine bans, background checks etc in place.

    A question…if a guy, who is obviously suffering from mental problems as spoofed in the cartoon, walked into a gun shop, could the dealer refuse to sell him a gun, legally?
    I am really curious.
    Do some gun shops have the sign that says “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone”, like restaurants, and some other businesses do?
    Or, would they all be totally afraid of being sued for refusing someone their 2nd Amendment rights?
    Just wondering…

    @masterskrain

    Yes they can. As long as the dealer doesn’t illegally discriminate in his reasoning (race, gender, sexual orientation) they can refuse to sell if in their judgement the person is “impaired or dangerous.”

    Standing next to a guy at a gun show last weekend, and he said “Something tells me I should buy both of those.” Does that in ANY way sound like Bennett might have it nailed??

    Those are also the same people that gave us George W(ar). Bush for two terms.

    Then, Comrade Bennett, the guy in your ignorant cartoon wouldn"t get the gun from a licensed dealrer.
