GSK is a nut in that .. you know she supports vigilantism and Joe .. well I don't think I need to explain further.

As for that nonsense, banning high capacity magazines is stupid, but I've no problem with longer waiting periods and more comprehensive background checks, especially in the mental health department. I don't plan on buying high powered semi automatic rifles anytime soon anyway so it's kind of a moot point. I like muh trusty old shotgun.

A high capacity magazine isn't the worst thing in the world, but why should someone be allowed to have more than one clip? That is where I ask the question. You can remove the hollow point ammo from your clip to go to the range and fire FMJ and once you are done, you can put the hollow points back in. It isn't the end of the world if you have to do that.


the purpose of high capacity magazines is to have the capacity to kill a high capacity of enemies. The typical pattern of Red Coats and Nazis was to gather enormous numbers of troops - as some of you have argued in other threads about Jews, and to go from home to home taking out families. Basically, the argument that armed Jews couldn't resist is directly connected to "what weapons should a person be legally allowed to own?"

Anyone familiar with the early wars in Israel will learn quickly that it is firepower, and not overwhelming numbers that effectively defends homes against people who want to destroy your way of life - be they Red Coats, Egyptians, or Nazis.

We have a nation that spends more on the military than the leading 16 countries combined. That is the least likely threat.If we do get invaded, it will be from trained KGB-esque agents taking out NORAD, commencing a SEAD operation, a CAP operation and destroying airbases. A hoard attacking the US would be mass suicide.

There is no such pattern common to the "Red Coats" and the "Nazis." The British weren't deceiving the British colonials onto cattle trains so that they could be killed with nerve gas, they were trying to levy income taxes to pay for their wars against the other colonial powers.

It would only be viewed as counterproductive by those who support big government.

Wrong. Some want a new government, not anarchy. And the government we currently have, on both sides, is predominately self entitled c** gargling asshats that shouldn't be in charge of a lemonade stand's budget, much less the ******** federal budget.

Or do you mean people who don't agree with you? In other words, the majority.

You mean a new government so that your minority opinion can rule? That's rich.

A new government in one half of the country seems to be going one way, and the other half has no interest in it, and it's rather ignorant in a nation this size to have one portion setting laws in the other.

You keep liking to claim being the majority, I wonder did you do this four years ago to when Democrats had control of the House, Senate, and Presidency?

You forget that the House is currently in control of Republicans.
And before you talk of rigged or unfair redistricting remember that the Democrats do that kind of thing as well. I don't really approve of the practice but don't blame only one side for a problem that exists in both. If you still wont concede on that argument, the Republicans won control of the house under the old districts, as well as the new ones. And the federal government doesn't control congressional districts, that is done by state legislatures, so in order for republicans to alter the districts in their favor they had to control the state legislature. State legislatures seem better tied to their people then the federal level is.

And one more thing you derive winning the vote as being the majority, but the vote is not a complete picture. The popular vote in the presidential race was decided on a margin of about 51.5% to 48.5% counting a total of 120 million votes. It is true that Democrats won, but the margin of victory was not overwhelming. Also 120 million is not the total number of eligible voters, nor is it anywhere near the 311 million population of the US. It is very hard to get accurate data on the opinions held by every citizen of the Untied States. While they did win the election that alone does not guarantee they hold the majority opinion.

It's not even close to half and you know it.

The GOP controlled the house only because of intense gerrymandering and voter suppression. Even then, they still managed to lose six seats and their approval rating is around 20%. They are by no means the majority, theyre just a vocal minority that need to shut the ******** up now because nobody likes them. And you can't blame them for having nobody like them after the house has decided to use 1984 as an instruction manual.

Less than half the population voted, and the victory was by just over half the voters. So to claim, as you have on other occasions that retardo has some sort of 'mandate' is, at best, asinine, and utterly ******** retarded at worst.

That works the other way too. Only 17% of Americans voted for Romney and that is with the very apparent voter suppression laws that helped republican voters.

Your still blaming only one side for a problem that exists on both sides. Your either ignorant or a hypocrite if you honestly believe only the Republicans are the problem. The approval rating for both houses of congress are down. Much of that is because they hardly do anything. And the current Senate has a habit of killing much of what comes to them with no debate at all.

Now again, why should the minority Republicans just shut up when for the longest time the minority Democrats never did?
