Same thing happened when Clinton became president. How many guns were stolen then?

The NRA is really just a lobbying group for gun and arms manufacturers. Fear sells. It always has.

I agree with you RCC. Those weapons are designed for offense, not defense. The same person who will buy that kind of weapon will also not have any problems selling it then to someone who is maybe not as scrupulous.

I personally think that anyone who purchases a firearm should be required to take a gun safety course, just like getting a driver's license. You have a driver's license to prove to everyone that you reasonably understand that you are somewhat competent with a large piece of machinery. Likewise, you should learn how to handle a weapon. Guns are tools. You use them to kill things. The right tool for the right job.

After all, the two biggest causes of gun deaths are suicide and accidents, not self-defense or murder.

See, this is why we need RobRoy. To tell us why we're wrong and why Obama is going to steal all of our guns and put us in concentration camps. This is no fun anymore.

We should go and recruit a couple of Freepers to join in the fun here.

You're right, of course, but I am actually kind of enjoying the privilege of making reasonable and bold statements without being confronted by half a dozen separate response posts (each one quoting part or all of my original post) from one guy who lacks reading comprehension skills and believes that nothing in the world has changed since just before he was born.

So, I'm really not going to complain that a Barak Obama victory sent one of our most perplexing trolls running for the hills. In a way, that's actually two wins for rational people. Of course, the bad news is it probably just gives him more time on whatever whacko fundamentalist boards he visits to reindoctrinate himself. If we ever see him again, he'll come back with some explanation of how Obama stole the election in a landslide or other nonsense.

I actually said to Tim last night that if he does come back, it'll be under a different login name. We'll always suspect who it is, but never have any actual proof.

A fillabuster proof majority may be what we need to act quickly on things though. I mean, that's what Roosevelt had after all and he was able to accomplish quite alot in a short amount of time.

I mean, it's a democracy after all. If there is a mandate from the people, then it needs to be followed. Extreme times call for extreme measures.

Also, I think that if the Republican Party had little to no power, they may go back to being what the Republican party really was. Here's a good op/ed from Ron Paul: http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/11/11/ ... index.html

I think if the GOP goes back to being the way that they were, or the way they say they want to be, they will likely make a comeback. If they continue to pander to the far right, they'll fade away.

There are rumors that Obama may ask Lieberman to be in his cabinet as head of homeland security. That is the committee that he heads currently, it would show that Obama is willing to forgive and forget, it would solve the issue of those who want to kick Lieberman to the curb, and the Governor of Lieberman's state would likely appoint another Democratic Senator as well.

The only thing the Democrats seems to want to push through right now is dipping into the $700 billion for any industry that's having a hard time during the recession. Currently that's auto manufacturers, but who's next? Best Buy reported today they are getting hit hard by the drawback in consumer spending. Do they get bailed out too? Circuit City filed for bankruptcy, do they get a bailout next?

Some people in Congress seem far too eager to throw taxpayer money at any company having a tough time. We need some fiscal conservatives to balance things out, or that $700 billion will be gone in a flash, then time to approve the next round of revolving bailout.

Despite Democrats having a healthy advantage in both the House and the Senate, a lot of the newly elected Democrats are from fairly conservative states. Not all are going to go along with some of Pelosi's/Obama's wilder ambitions, because they will have to answer to their constituents who went with them for economic purposes only to find out they got a huge social-contract mandate.

The gun control topic in the other thread is a good example.

As for the GOP, unfortunately most of the moderate ones got shown the door, and the most right wings held their seats.
