April 23, 2013

At another time, in a different context, Sen. Joe Manchin might have been successful in a proposal he and three other senators offered last week....

Why try again? The real liars are in the government. They are misleading Americans into thinking that closing loopholes in gun sales is going to prevent another mass murder like the one in Sandy Hook. LIARS. All we get from our law makers is lies. They lied about the "no call list". They lied about Obama Care. They lied about Iraq. LIES LIES LIES !!!

This current batch of Senate republicans are an embarassment to American history. It now takes 60 or more votes to pass anything and that has never happened in our 237 years. The money being poured into the pockets of our legislators, both sides here, is at the highest levels in our 237 year history. The Supreme Court decision called citizens united has made a mockery of democracy. Money means more than the will of the people. We now, in one year, have more filibusters than our entire past history. We can thank the republicans for these positions of obstructionism and taking the will of Americans and tossing it into the garbage can.

I agree. Manchin and Toomey had a good doable bill, but the fanatics of the NRA dangling their purses full of money in front of the corruptible senators, killed the bill. If Manchin would better explain his bill, I believe he could get it passed.

Truth is, this legislation is just feel good legislation. It will not prevent another Newtown or make our streets any safer.

But, the truth doesn't matter anymore.

Only a liberal would support this bill. Do you know that this bill permitted your doctor to enter your information into the national background check database (used to see if you can buy a gun, legally) if you were prescribed ANTI-DEPRESSANTS? Did you know that he could do it WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE?

Guns or lax gun laws are not to blame for Newton, Virginia Tech, Columbine, Arizona or any other shooting. PEOPLE are to blame. Specifically, the people who claim to be parents but then ignore their primary responsibilities-guidance and discipline.

The lobbies don't want you to think this, though. Instead, they blame the NRA (which doesn't seem to get a great many candidates elected), Citizens United (which leveled the playing field against the unconstitutional McCain-Feingold) and George Bush.

It's too bad you did not apply for a permit to post ridiculous free speech on this board. You are encouraging violence by making false statements. I encourage you to research the definition of "terrorist organization" and then post an apology.

As for Hooplehead-apparently, Hooplehead is sad that we live in a Constitutional Republic. Hooplehead would rather have mob rule, where 51 people can vote to steal wealth, and rights, from the other 49.

In a Constitutional Republic, all 100 have equal rights and even if 99 people get together and pass feel good laws, these 99 cannot take rights away from the single 1.

...with 4.5 MILLION American citizens as members. You’d better call Homeland Security about that cell, Clueless.

Joe, hang it up and shut up about this. Absolutely nothing in your bill would have changed anything that happened in Colorado or Connecticut. Start beating on ATF,FBI and associated agencies why there are so few indictments under the existing laws.
