    250+ “Mass killings” in 2013 (four or more at a whack, pardon the pun.)


    We’ve been doing this for quite a while though, but “gang related” never makes it beyond the local news, nor do folks who keep it “in the family”

    It’s his opponents that oppose any common-sense remedy to the problem.

    Any man’s death diminishes me because I am
    involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
    it tolls for thee. . . .
    from Meditation 17

    Are you honestly blaming him for THIS? How many cups of tea have you HAD?

    Since he’s not a dictator, he’s not been able to force Congress to be effective on this issue. We, the voters, have to do that!

    The second amendment need not be repealed. We just need legislators who are willing to interpret it the way it was intended, the way the supreme court and every constitutional scholar interprets it, the way the founders intended it. Texas and North Carolina, passing laws written by the NRA, just this year made it legal for convicted felons and people on the sexual predators registry to buy and keep and carry concealed guns. None of that is required by our constitution. We could have a Canadian model of “only people who can prove that they are responsible can have guns.”

    “The second amendment need not be repealed. We just need legislators who are willing to interpret it the way it was intended, the way the supreme court and every constitutional scholar interprets it, the way the founders intended it.”

    It is seldom that I see a post that is this much in error.

    That couldn’t be Obama’s watch! The hands on it aren’t spinning like crazy!

    Political cartoonists are supposed to provide an intelligent insight into the foibles of politics, but I guess you need to be intelligent to do that…..

    Congress has voted 40+ times to end Obamacare stating it is the will of the people yet they ignore the overwhelming majority of we citizens who want them to address better gun control. Come on how about putting a little effort into the well documented “will of the people.”

    Signe, the NRA blocked Obama’s attempts to pass common sense gun control laws! www.smartgunlaws.org

    “Those of us on the left understand the 2nd Amendment far better than any tea party moron like you harleyqueen.”

    I know many on the left and right that understand the intent of the Second Amendment. I also know people that are anti-gun that refuse to accept the premises of the Founding Fathers as found in the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers and over 200 years of Supreme Court decisions. I have no objection to people being anti-gun. To use a hackneyed phrase, that is their privilege. But. I do object when people try to use the Constitution as the basis for their anti-gun position.

    Careful there. You know how the word “responsible” is considered dirty.

    “Was the vagueness, confusion caused by the second amentment intentional or not..”

    In the grammatic structure of the time (placement of commas, semicolons, etc) that it was written there was no confusion or vagueness. Grammar has changed over time so that now the confusion is ours.
