    Well, this thread is turning out pretty much as expected.

    Public education is a conservative’s worst nightmare.

    Public education is the reproductive system of liberalism.

    nevermind Kev, your boy got his guns back…

    Never mind, indeed. Just as we shouldn’t mind that an army of JBTs stormed Cambridge last month and ripped people out of their homes in violation of the 4th amendment.

    Also, the whole right/left, liberal/conservative thing is just a bunch of nonsense.

    There are people who are pro-rights, and people who are pro-slavery. It doesn’t matter if you want to get into my safe, my neighbors bedroom, or both of our wallets… people have had enough.

    I hope you realize that guy got his guns taken by mistake and they gave them back to him.  Just seems a strange story for the gun lobby to use as propaganda.

    Why won’t you be there, Kev? Stand up for your rights against the tyrannical DC government! Shut down their homeless shelters while you’re at it.

    Right… as you said… never mind… nobody has their “weapons confiscated,” they just get their “rights revoked.” If they happen to get them restored, then it was obviously just a mistake.

    Why won’t you be there, Kev?

    This is not going to help the cause. I am in favor of all legal resistance. Some of the corrupt legislators who supported the criminalization of private intrastate transfers recently learned a lesson in what they can and can’t get away with… but it’s not over until they lose their seats to pro-freedom candidates.

    Gun control for the left is like abortion for the right… if you can’t keep your mouth shut, you lose your seat to someone who either supports freedom or who can.

    Kev, what is legal resistance? Was the American revolution legal?

    Just like most topics, the misinformation being spread is viral, with novasteve at the helm of the ship of ignorance.

    Most of you haven’t any clue of the facts behind “gun control reform” and lay baseless claims to support your arguments.

    Conservatives use fear to push their agenda “The liberals are trying to take your guns and leave your family helpless against the monsters that are trying to force their way into your homes!” Stop playing chicken little for one second and clam down.

    Turn off Fox News for one second and start doing your own research. Conservatives blindly trust Fox as the purveyor of the sky is falling. And, when you start reading things that are consistent among all of the other media reports but are contrary to what Fox News is reporting… that’s not the lying liberal media as steve would have you believe… it’s what the rest of us refer to as “the truth.”

    Oh please, democrats don’t use fear, especially the “war on women”? Republicans are going to legalize rape, republicans if they make you pay for a copayment for birth control its just like banning birth control. Democrats were saying that the Sandy Hook shooter used a fully automatic weapon. i read liberals on facebook every day saying you can buy machine guns. I heard democrats calling .223 rounds “large caliber, high powered”. Their list of bans of so called “assault weapons” were based just on guns that looked scary to them. none of the proposals they propose would have stopped sandy hook, and they know it. HE STOLE THE GUNS after killing his mom. And democrats only seem to care about shootings if white suburbanites get shot. They ignore the d aily urban violence. Oh by the way, guess why this story will remain local:

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/authorities-boy-shot-police-20130506,0,1607419.story

    First, guns are already illegal. Second, he was receiving mental health care. So what can you do to make political usage of this story? NOT MUCH. So better ignore it.

     

     

     

    If I ever watch news it is the BBC. So stop your mind reading. You are bad it.

    Liberals using “fear!” LOL!

    What you call “fear,” rational individuals call “common sense.”

    You watch the BBC to get your American political insight? And, I thought Republicans were supposed to be true blue patriotic Americans?

    So making women pay 9 a month for b irth control is like banning it in your eyes?

    Is it common sense to lie about things, like calling an AR-15 an automatic weapon? When liberals want barrel shrouds banned, but they don’t even know what they are, is that common sense?

     

    They even lie about “assault weapons”. real assault weapons are already illegal. They have been since the 1930s in fact before they were even invented for the military. Fully automatic weapons are illegal for the vast vast majority of americans. Yet Obama said that the sandy hook shooter used a fully automatic weapon.

    Is it a coincidence the media is ignore the Kermit Gosnell story? Then they say if abortion gets regulated, it is like banning, it right? I guess that’s why they explain liberal state like MD and DE closing down abortion clinics for aggregious standards violations?

    Assault weapons are semiautomatic weapons.  Try not to redefine what “real assault weapons” are.  You are referring to fully automatic weapons being banned.

    The weapon used at Sandy Hook was an AR-15. It’s a semiautomatic assault rifle. You can very easily modify them into fully automatic weapons. While that one wasn’t, just because fully automatic weapons are banned, doesn’t mean someone couldn’t modify a semi-automatic rifle and create a fully automatic weapon.

    I was a Marine marksmanship instructor for several years. This is seemingly another topic where you’ve wandered into unfamiliar territory and are up against those who are much better informed than you are.

    And, the President misspoke. The White House admitted to as much the next day. You misspeak here on a daily basis. The difference between the two of you: The President owns up to it when he accidentally gets the facts wrong. I think you intentionally misrepresent the truth and you never own up to your lies.

    Assault weapons are based upon the StG-44. Sturmgewehr means “assault weapon” in english. By definition it must be selective fire, meaning you can choose semi auto or fully auto and it must use a mid sized round. Something in between a pistol caliber bullet and a rifle calibre bullet like a 30.06 or 303 british. So why are all the guns banned by assault weapons banned already banned because they are fully automatic?

     

    Easily modify? Perhaps if you are an EXPERT gunsmith.

     

    Has there been ANY evidence at all that any semi auto weapon used in any crime let alone mass shooting has been modified to be fully automatic?

     

    I’m a guy on a local message board , not the President. I would expect the president to be held to a higher standard.
