    Riiiiight….because most congressman, including Dems and Republicans, don’t agree with Barry’s plan to have the government run everything then they must be corrupt. Ha

    No, very FEW people agree that’s what Obama wants.

    Except the people who only get their news from right wing radio, Fox News, fringe-right blogs, and their glow-in-the-dark plastic Jeezus.

    The background check bill would have maintained the illegality of a national registry. Facts: ruining conservative arguments since forever.

    “During the Clinton presidency, NRA president-for-life Wayne LaPierre raised vast amounts of money with direct-mail campaigns against both Bill and Hillary Clinton for supposedly coddling criminals. Dubbed “Crimestrike,” the NRA crusade pushed prison construction, mandatory minimum sentencing and sundry other panaceas designed to position the NRA as the bane of muggers, rapists and murderers. Those themes echoed traditional Republican propaganda messages dating back to the Nixon era, when the presidential crook himself often derided judicial concerns about civil liberties and promised to restore “law and order.” (When Nixon henchmen like the late Chuck Colson went to prison themselves, they often emerged as prison reformers and civil libertarians, of course.)

    “But in the aftermath of the Newtown massacre, with the NRA angrily opposing any measure designed to hinder criminals from acquiring firearms, the public is learning who is really soft on crime.
    -
    “Police officials across the country want universal background checks, magazine limits, and stronger enforcement against illegal weapons sales, but the NRA and its Republican allies insist that such changes will penalize legitimate gun owners. Or they complain that criminals mainly obtain weapons by stealing them, so restrictions on sales won’t make any difference.”

    All of the money that paranoid gun worshipers are pumping into their church, the NRA, ultimately ends up in the hands of the same media that reports on gun violence.


    Let’s see how this plays out over time.

    Dear HOWGOZIT

    Are you aware that Tiggerr is copping your bit…citing news stories that ALLEGEDLY appeared on NBC, but never showing the story itself?

    Someone PLEASE tell me how a background check will keep law-abiding people from purchasing guns. I keep seeing that it will do so, but I can’t see why. Please educate me.

    It (background check) would have kept the Boston Bombers from obtaining guns and killing a police officer since they were pemanent residents. How’s that?

    @ronald rini

    Pressure cookers have a legitimate and useful purpose. Guns are designed to kill. THAT’S the difference. And why do you fear gun registration? Do you have a driver’s license? Do you fear traffic cops breaking down your bedroom door at midnight?

    Politicians should be like NASCAR. They should have to wear patches with all their sponsors on them. Might make their votes a little easier to understand.

    If you have a gun, don’t you want criminals to know? Why do people put these in the window?

    Uncle Joe: of interest, possibly? When I bought a Smith and Wesson, the government was only allowed under the law to keep the record of my “background check”, for 24 hours!


    Smith and Wesson however, keeps a PERMANENT record. Not only that, but S & W sold my name to the NRA, who hounded me for months to join the"rifle association", after i bought a semi-automatic handgun! (.22 rimfire by the way).


    As nobody has ever tried to seize my cars, I’m more concerned about manufacturers, or he NRA having a permanent record of my ownership on file, where THEIR records might become available to “criminal elements”, than having “government” having the record.

    ahab,
    wow, congrats on your stats!
    On the other hand, how many of the 247 actually used them as did the ones who recently caused massacres? ZERO!
    How many guns were used in the Boston bombings? Zero!
    Digital surveillance work best and checking Nutty people.
