    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.

    It matters not that OUR Congress agrees with OUR President. The problem is, they refuse to do anything..
    We need Congressional oversight as well as real gun control..
    And campaign reform, real reform….
    Remove the money !
    There should be a web site displaying their activities..
    They are our servants…

    @ronald rini

    Ronald, your position holds no water, IMO.
    Do you not agree that guns are dangerous ?
    As are motor vehicles – which are registered..
    The idea is to design a system that can prevent the semi-insane and the criminal from owning dangerous weapons.
    The protection of the people is paramount..
    Or, are you against this as well ?
    You know, back 100 years ago, there were many, I am sure, who were against have cars registered.
    We have always had our obstructionists and criminals…no problem for me , no guns….

    It all boils down to this …
    We need a better people.
    Ones who will place the people first, NOT the NRA or the wealthy.

    The national gun registry I know NOT about.
    .
    As an admitted Pollyanna, I think that it is a good idea, providing that we have the quality of people to administer it…this is vital….I believe it is possible….Look at our “first responders” as an example of excellance..

    An admitted Pollyanna is the eternal optimist , which I try to be…
    We do not need so many pessimists..

    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?
