    Then it’s a good thing no one proposed an oppressive law that removed the 2nd amendment.

    90% support is a lie! Yes 90% support for something that resembled the bill that was shot down. But it was the elected officials that read it and understood it that voted no. They understood that who they represent would not want what is in the bill. No 90% there. They read it and saw how knee jerk hap hazard the bill Obama cried about was put together.
    In a survey, you can get 90% to answer yes on about anything. “Are You in favor of gun background checks to but a gun?” Well duh um are they not doing that now? so ya we should be doing that. "
    reality? Yes, after the background check I just passed, burn the paperwork, I now own the gun and that is that. Reality, what was a loony lib gun hater wants and what was closer to what was in the bill? Here is your background check, now bend over so we can tag you and this gun. now make sure you only use 7 bullets at a time. and here is your trigger lock and gun safe and ooops i forgot to give you the combination, that will be mailed to you. have a nice day.

    100% of liberals will support you in the next crisis you want to hype and blame the R for.

    Here is an interesting thought…I wonder what the results would be if legislation to expand background checks to gun shows and private sellers was put on the next general election ballot nationwide in 2014, and voted on by the PEOPLE, not by the Congress?
    Just curious…

    IF you are really interested, then start NOW and get the paperwork going for that idea to be put on the ballot. You start a petition, I will sign it.

    @Rad-ish

    To an extent, Radish, that is the way it should be…But, I have a low opinion of the people…not good I know…
    The people get overly emotional about things…this includes me…
    Our President will never find an issue that has 100% support…
    Even our entrance into WW2 was a 99% thing, BION
    After we do get a better Congress, a better written gun control law may have a chance; but reform is necessary..

    @Harleyquinn

    I am against gun safes, gun locks – on the surface….

    After all, the idea is defense, is it not ?
    The safety/security things are OK, perhaps if the weapon is just an expensive toy…or hobby thing…
    ……………………………………………………………………
    What is wrong with non-lethal means of defense ?
    …………………………………………………………………………
    And what is wrong in telling the truth and only the truth and the whole truth, Mr Conservative or libertarian ?
    ………………………………………………………………………
    And what is wrong with refraining from petty slurs and insults….
    These just make you into a two-year old child….

    Depite the claims of polls the majority of Americans did not support stricter gun support. Go back and look at the news, for every one story claiming the majority of Americans were for ever stricter gun control laws there were eight showing that gun sales were way up and that there were places where it was the exact opposite to stricter gun control. This was from around the country. There was just yesterday a news story that the AR-15 is selling in record numbers since these last few months. Stricter gun control laws aren’t going to stop gun crimes from happening as the only ones who tey will affect will be law abiding citizens, but the irony is those pushing for such don’t want to get that. They want to believe that if it becomes illegal folks won’t have it. There is a reason why so many of these crimes are already said to be carried out with illegal guns, and such crimes will continue whether or not there is stricter gun control.

    If stricter gun laws don’t work then why is gun violence down so much in Australia after they enacted strict gun laws?

    “voted on by the PEOPLE, not by the Congress?”


    I would sign your petition. I would also be more than willing to support the true will of the people in such an issue, regardless of how it impacts me. That’s democracy. My concern and I’m hoping not to appear cynical, but: many times in many states the people have voted on a bill, and the opposition didn’t like the results so they threw it into the courts and in many cases overturned the “will of the people.” California is a classic case of that with the gay marriage bill. It would also be nice if they wrote the proposed legislation so someone that didn’t go to law school could understand it..

    @mickey1339

    The “will of the people” is not necessarily the right thing to do.
    Tho I wish it were not so, there are reasons legislation is written as it is, and I have often heard misinterpretations of laws.
    For instance, it is not illegal to pray in school, the school administration is not to lead or propose doing so.
    Would most americans condone a teacher requiring their students to face Mecca and pray?

    Why is President Obama pictured here? The US Senate has had the last say. Well… next to last…
