    In other words, Progressive Leftists hate the American people. After all, they are more concerned about the rare mass shooting than the mass of dead bodies in their bastions of gun control, and more concerned with forcing people into Obamacare than with reducing the cost of, or improving the performance of our health care.

    At least by those measures the cartoon is accurate in that the Republicans have their priorities somewhat straighter than the Democrats do.

    Enoki: “Mass shootings” meaning four or more victims, occur on nearly a daily basis, 250 out of 260 days in 2013! They are NOT “rare”. Simple fact, “Obamacare” DOES need further work, like “single payer”, but overall will reduce costs and save lives.


    Just making the purchase of any firearm, as FEDERAL LAW and consistent therefore in ALL JURISDICTIONS, REQUIRE clearance and certification copying my state’s requirement for a Concealed Weapons Permit, would reduce access by criminals, AND it would assure that far more people who DO BUY GUNS, would have to know what they’re doing with them! It would also mean folks would keep better track of where those weapons are located, and when they “disappear” into the wrong hands.

    TIgger: Chicago, gun laws, Miami, loose gun laws in Florida:


    2010 statistics rate per 100,000 people:


    Homicide Chicago: 15.5 Miami: 69


    Robbery Chicago: 501 Miami: 2,002


    Violent assautlt: Chicago 486 Miami 2,909


    So isn’t it time you forgot bringing up Chicago’s strict gunn laws, and crime statistics, and just move to Miami where all those guns floating around make you SOOOOO muuch “safer”??

    Poor example dtroutma. Selective use of statistics at best.

    On the other hand, the murder rate seems to have far more coorelation to poverty, lack of good government, and a large minority population within a city.

    For example per 100,000 Oakland is about 50% more dangerous than Chicago, St. Louis about double, Detroit about triple and New Orleans about 3.5 times more deadly.

    So, essentially, strict or lax gun laws don’t have a substancial effect on crime and it is a misconception that passing strict gun laws will have any real impact on criminal violence.

    You have just laid out the BEST reason for increasing benefits for America’s poor.
    Firm solid statistics that it saves lives.
    Not just poor lives but middle class lives that are getting shot.
    .
    Others look at the numbers you just reported and cut food stamps, increasing the killings.
    They cut housing assistance, increasing the killings.
    They increase the poor tax, increasing the killings.
    .
    They? The republican party is claiming credit for the policies and yours is the only comment directly tying their policies to gun death increases.

    It is both. Minorities also bring in differences in culture and that plays a role. So, minorities are a valid reason.

    I’d rather subsidize businesses to employ them at something than give handouts to them if we are going to do that.
    For instance, giving an employer a tax break to employ workers making something that is largely or entirely made overseas now such that the employee gets a bigger paycheck while the employer gets a tax break for employing that person.

    Handouts don’t encourage proper behavior. They fund improper behavior and encourage sloth.

    The Latest USA Today Polls show 53% of Americans want The ACA repealed and replaced.

    But, half of them want to replace it with Single Payer.

    Mainly in Chicago…

    One more time: Indiana, gun friendly, right over the border.

    Unfortunately, the video at NoMoreNames.org is now marked as ‘private’.
    However, Googling “John Cantin” brings us to the same video on YouTube. (About 5:30 or so.) Not even argument, just partisan ugliness.
