    No, those with their heads stuck (up somewhere) are conservative and usually lapdog Republiclans.

    I am unfortunately all too aware of the gun violence and its results.

    If these people that are clamoring to take away or put in place “common sense” laws actually delved into the statistics that they use, about 30% of firearms deaths are suicides, another third are gangbangers killing each other, and the remaining third include self defense, murders, police involved shootings, and a variety of others.

    And none of the laws proposed really do anything different than the 20,000 other local, county, state, and federal laws on the books that are not enforced. How about we actually enforce those laws and THEN see what tweaking needs to be done? Nahhhhhh. We’ll just pass more laws that won’t get enforced, of more “feel good” laws a-la Connecticut, NY, and CO. Magazine restrictions? bayonet lugs?

    And we won’t even talk about the abysmal underfunding of the mental health system in this nation. You know, the 800 pound gorilla in the room when it comes to so many mass shootings – which (despite the MSMs reporting) are not happening with any more frequency or higher numbers of deaths.

    While I agree, the Republicans talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk. Really quite sad.

    When the Dems ran for Congress in 2006, they were decrying Republicans spending like drunken sailors as Nancy Pelosi put it. They won the election, and spent just as much or more. Four years later they lost.

    You cannot expect to live without consequences when you borrow 40% of every annual budget. Nevermind our unfunded liabilities, the impending collapse of Social Security.

    Gutting $500,000,000 from the federal budget would not really be that difficult.

    My gun must be broken. I loaded it up and it just sat there. It never tried to kill no one…

    Now, now…. you’re making entirely TOO much sense. You just made a LOT of heads explode with your logic, I think.

    It’s funny how anti-gunners like to say that pro-gunners keep rehashing the same, old talking points about existing laws not being enforced. The thing is, those talking points are completely valid. Just because it’s a new day, month, or year doesn’t make the facts any less factual. The laws that are in place NEED TO BE ENFORCED. No new laws are required.

    Funny how mine don’t do that, either. They just stay where I put them, waiting for ME to put the sights on target and pull the trigger. I don’t understand it.

    Well, first of all, I agree that better enforcement would be good. I also agree that better mental health systems would be good. Blame Reagan and the GOP, who cut the bejeezus of that, so you can’t claim a win on that one.
    And actually, since there are many sensible laws enacted in nearly every other freaking country in the world, a little compare-and-contrast comes in handy here, too. We have a ludicrously high handgun death rate. There are reasons.

    I regularly used a .22 to remove the steel cap off speaker ring magnets.
    This has five times the success rate over trying to pry the caps off, with a slow pull the epoxy would fracture the magnet, whereas the sharp bullet shock would pop it off clean.
    I am sure there are other uses as well.
    .
    But yes, poking holes in objects is the main use.

    me and my team members used to sit at the table on our barge on the Mekong River and talk about how many things we could use on the table to kill, injure or maim…all of them had other uses also…our firearms, not so much.

    I cannot stand the arugment “my gun doesn’t hurt people, PEOPLE hurt people.” Of freaking course! But your gun does make it a HELL of a lot easier to hurt MORE people, hurt them BADLY, and do it QUICKLY.

    In reading the above comments, one gets the impression that law enforcement is to blame for our many shooting deaths.
    What must be done to get better law enforcement? Eh?

    I’m guessing you have never been stabbed? or clubbed ?Like I have .It happened pretty quick and did not appear to be very hard for the future Obama supporters to do.It also required surgeries for the stab wounds and the blow to the face with the pipe.

    About 95% of people who get shot are criminals killing criminals,police shoting criminals or people who criminals are trying to victimize shooting criminals.No great loss there.The other 5% or so are the tragedies.
    Of course the world was free of violence before there were guns.In 2010 there were 2998 traffic deaths in the state where I live.
    In 2010 there were 1246 murders 805 of which were with a gun.
    Going by those numbers Its considerably more likely to be killed in a car wreck then to be shot.
    If your not involved in the drug trade some how, I’m guessing your chances of being murdered are considerably less.

    I know you libs don’t like logic or numbers, but facts are facts. More gun control, more gun deaths (Chicago). More citizens armed, fewer gun deaths. If you break into my house, you better be ready to “meet your maker”. I propose a law requiring all non-gun owners to post a huge sign in there front yard: “This family is unarmed”. Where I live, there are very few break-ins, because it is assumed everyone is armed.
