    Long as he tells the truth, who cares about the caliber? Close up, a shotgun loaded with birdshot IS better than anything short of grizzly bear grade pepper spray…

    Or is Kelley simply wanting to fine tune the Dem’s politics? I can’t believe he really cares.

    OH PLEASE! Why would you worry about alienating the “black helicopter crowd”? They have no political value and are a purely destructive community force.

    A shotgun loaded with buckshot IS very effective.
    The load is 12 balls, .30 caliber and stops anything nearby without hitting the neighbors.

    Like everything else, the gun debate comes down to money. If they pass legislation to expand background checks that means less weapons sold in the long run. This means less profits for the gun industry and even less contributions to the NRA. We can’t have that!

    Biden called out Senators for filibustering a deal as that filibuster talk cooled, but he got loud — at least compared to his boss — when it came to the NRA, whose bizarre commercials and lobbying effort on Capitol Hill the vice president called “campaign of disinformation.” It was a new tactic for the Obama administration, with the president continuing to studiously avoided mentioning the letters N, R, and A — even if they are not alone.
    .
    A visibly emotional Biden indulged no such circumspection, comparing the most vehement opponents of expanded background checks, which 92% of Americans support, to conspiracy theorists. “The black helicopter crowd is really upset,” Biden said, taking on a kind of faux voice in describing fears about background checks — “It’s kind of scary, man,” he said.

    “A visibly emotional Biden indulged no such circumspection”


    Without denigrating the true sorrow and horror over Sandy Hook, I wish our politicians were as moved to focus on long term solutions and addressing a culture deteriorating further into poverty and violence. Their shallow determination to fix the problem with legislation is realistically ineffective as long as the core issues are left unattended.


    Those issues are huge. Unemployment, poverty, inadequate educational training, drug abuse, crime, lack of effective mental health care, the list continues. But as long as the legislators can say “look we passed a bill” so we’re doing our part," the core problems continue. I am the first to say background checks are needed, but that is just a very, very small piece of the puzzle we have to reconstruct.


    Attached is an interview with a man that is so far left a progressive that it makes me itch, but he has some very succinct points on our violent culture.

    The government is controlled by the Democrats. Why would they have problems with allowing investigations into hard right terror groups? Also, what about groups like ELF or radical enviromentalist gropus? I can’t imagine too many of them have Romney bumper stickers on their cars.

    Yeah, except that old “Uncle Joe” has no idea what the truth might be, since he’s too busy being the Union boss good ol’ boy. Sheesh.

    I read the story on your link, He seems like a reasonable person obsessed with neoliberalism.

    Great comment, Mickey!
    It occurs to me that people often turn to violence when they feel hopeless and impotent. I wonder if there would be less violence if legislators would create the long term plans and solutions to which you infer. A little hope goes a long way.
    Thanks again.
    Respectfully,
