    Why don’t we just forget all this and move on, we all know nothing is going to change. Humans are nothing more than walking apes with better weapons

    @Ms. Ima

    Maybe, JUST MAYBE, if the leadership of the N.R.A. would start to promote that fact as much as they seem to be screaming about any new legislation, the general public might be inclined to have a more sympathetic and supportive view of the organization.
    Just a thought…

    Its the same old story of the Old West. We are a peace loving town but we need a man with a gun to protect our sorry fantasy when the bad guys show up. The job of keeping the peace was a man with a gun. How hard is that to understand?

    Here’s the text of the Second Amendment: 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.
    Where in that text does it say a citizen may have an assault weapon? A 100 round magazine? Armor piercing bullets? Dum-dum bullets? NRA and other gun nuts would say it all comes under the “right of the people to keep and bear arms”. Fine. Let’s go by what was available in the late 1700’s when this amendment was written and passed by the states. Arms can mean a sword, a blunderbuss, a carbine, a flintlock, a musket, or a sabre.

    Using exactly the same argument, the 1st Amendment wouldn’t apply to TV, radio, telegraph, fax, or the Internet, would it?
    When all those who want restrictions on the 2nd amendment abandon communication technology and take quill to parchment and go back to distributing copies made on a printing press, I’ll believe your sincerity.
    Until then, I can only be amazed at your logic, and not in a good way.

    “Mrs. Ima – you’re still a little whiny b1tc#!!!”

    I seldom comment on trollish comments, but yours is so exceptional and you made so many of them that I have to congratulate you. Unfortunately, you sort of ruined the whole theme with the last sentence.

    We have the ATF. Of course Congressman Sensenbrenner inserted a requirement that the ATF director has to be confirmed by the Senate (into the Patriot Act, 2006), so there has not been an ATF Director in 6 years. Congressman Tiahrt, 10 years ago, inserted into a spending bill an amendment (sponsored by the NRA) restrictions on the ATF. This bill severely restricted the ATF’s ability to do what the NRA says they want them to do, which is enforce existing gun laws. It allowed dealers to ignore police requests for assistance. It denied Congress formerly public crime gun data. It ended the oversight of used firearm sales. It required the destruction of background check records within 24 hours. The ATF has the same number of agents now that it had 40 years ago. It’s time to take gun control away from the NRA (gun manufacturers) and move it back to the federal government, where it belongs. Self-regulation does not work.

    I agree with you absolutely 100% — until your last two sentences, which totally ruined the post.

    The Constitution’s right to bear arms was tied to “regulated militias” before there was a standing Army. There is no right of the people to bear arms apart from that!

    @Dycel

    Please tell us, in your opinion, what the “reality of the situation” is?

    All you provided was hyperbole and counter rhetoric, very little substance and absolutely no substantiation for your diatribe, just opinion.

    Love this one

    To reinforce what has been said in the above posts, if you need to use the top row of characters to express yourself, forget it. People do not think it is cute.

    Yeah, no one complains about laws against slander and libel, and both conservatives and liberals complain about varying degrees of violence, sex, and language in movies, television, and radio.

    Flagged.
    A liberal use of insults is not liberal, it’s all troll.

    What I like best about the cartoon is it shows these groups as childish, immature, and not yet done with the education needed to be part of a society. Still in school, but more interested in their toys than education and bettering themselves.

    “Join a modern, rational society.”



    I understand you getting irritated by Ima. Obviously that’s his stated purpose. But your irrational rant about the NRA and gun owners is a bit over the top don’t you think? If that’s an example of a modern, rational society comment we have very different definitions of rational.
