If things remain as they are in the Republican Primary field, especially if Sarah decides not to run, then Michelle seems to be a good choice for a conservative to vote for.
Nobody is perfect but she seems okay. Hermain Cain isn't too bad either. Both these people are great conservatives, its just a question of how much support they will be able to get.
Well agree to disagree.
You want to infringe on my rights based on nothing more than your feelings. You can't even articulate one persuasive reason why they should be restricted.
I, on the other hand, don't wish to require you to own one.
That makes you the tyrant in this exchange. You don't have the right to be free from irrational fears, and you sure as have don't have any right to limit mine to make it so.
I've heard the "common sense gun control" argument since I was a young man, 25 years ago, when the "assault weapon ban" was first floated. The arguments failed then, and they fail now, even more so since an AW Ban was law of the land for 10 years and made no measurable difference in crime rates.
And that's according the DOJ.
You agree with your neighbor, DiFi, the original AW Banner. Fellow travelers need to stick together.
I’ve done my research. I own my weapon. You claimed I was afraid of them...you were wrong. I think common sense needs to come into play for you and trailerpark dude in the other response. Why would you need a flame thrower? What is the purpose?
It seems to me that your argument and trailerpark dude is simply BECAUSE I CAN. Or, you argue that if we let the gov’t not allow us to have assault weapons then by God, what are they going to take next. The old “give an inch they take a mile” argument.
Well, each to his own. Plenty of adults can live with the idea of owning weapons for sport or defense of their homes, lives, etc without resorting to it being a weapon that was designed solely for use by a professional soldier. Again, you disagree and by doing so you start calling people stupid or communists or unAmerican. Whatever.
a weapon that was designed solely for use by a professional soldier.
Oh, clearly you haven't. You do understand that our soldiers use full auto M-16's and that M-16's are not covered by your ban don't you? However it does cover many SEMI autos like the AR-15 which our soldiers do not use.
Oh wait, you said you have done your research and know this so you are lying?
Once again it is the Bill of Rights not the Bill of Needs.
Posting to you is like showing a chicken a card trick.
LOL. First you said I’m scare of guns, yet I own a gun. You were wrong.
Now you call it “my ban”...nice.
Not my ban. You don’t need AK47’s anymore than you need a flamethrower, RPG, grenades, mines in fromt of your house or what have you.
This is purely you and others running scared that if they take “these away they’ll take them all away”. That will never happen. To many of us that have guns to let that happen. Just as there are too many people with common sense to know there is no reason to have some of these assault weapons allowed for private citizens.
Are there some guns on the list that probably shouldn’t be? Yup. That’s your argument and a valid one. But something tells me that you wouldn’t be satisfied until nothing was on the list. Maybe I’m wrong, but I doubt it.
Trailerpark, our rights are infringed on every day, sorry to bring that to your attention.
You are not allowed to have a tank....are you screaming about your rights? You are not allowed to snort cocaine all day long...are you screaming about your rights?
We have laws in this country that are brought into being by the officials we elect via a Republic form of Democracy. I’m sorry if you feel your rights are crushed here, but for the common good laws sometimes do that. Most people that aren’t on the fringes realize this. We can agree to disagree on the merits.
I have given a reason...they are unnecessary to have these types of weapons in the hands of general public. What is the purpose of having a fully automatic assault weapon? Are the Canadians invading and you may need it to ward off attacks? There is ZERO good reason to have them. NONE. Please provide one if there is.
I’m all for keeping most weapons free and legal to buy and own. Not these as I have yet to see a single reason why people should have them other than “IT’S MY RIGHT”. Well, it’s not if laws are passed that are constitutional and say you don’t have that right.
There can you hear THAT Sarah Brady?
For the last time moron, full auto weapons are NOT covered by the ban that the liberals like you love. In a real State like Texas all one has to do is pay a $200.00 tax and fill out some paperwork then you can have one. Scares the pants right off you doesn't it?
That is so simple that even a Barney Fife or Barney Frank should be able to understand.
The other thing is that real Americans don't care what Sarah Brady and you think because you are incapable of thinking as you are both brainless and nutless.
I doubt that you even have a gun. You lied about having done any research so why would I believe you have gun. A lace doily yes, gun no.
As I said, you're out of your league. The assault weapon bans being discussed have nothing to do with fully automatic weapons. Either you're ignorant of the issue or you're dissembling. Second, rights, natural rights and those guaranteed by the BOR, do not need to be justified; that would make them privileges.
But to humor you, I need them for the same reason the police need them. As they say, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away. Apparently you are unaware of several recent breakdowns in civil order: Katrina, Rodney King riots, the recent tornados in the SE, where looters are roaming rural areas with LE that is stretched thin. I'll bet you live within shouting distance of a police precinct; many of us don't.
That being said, your inability to imagine a good reason for me to own a particular firearm is not the same thing as a persuasive argument against my being allowed to own it. Sorry that you think it is.
Flamethrowers aren't eeven regulated, you fool.
Have the self respect to keep out of issue you know nothing of, other than your feelings.
You are so intellectually flaccid, you must be a liberal.
Flaccid? I’ll bet you use that word a lot.
Flamethrowers may not be regulated, but there are laws on the books making them illegal in most states.
They are fun to shoot.
Everyone except for a gun-grabbing, pro-abortion, pro-faggot metro-sexual would know that.
Now 'lil fella you ought to go have a white wine with your girlfriends and discuss waxing or men or what ever y'all babble to each other about while the men are out shooting guns.
Now you're just making crap up.
Are you suggesting that a gun grabbing liberal would lie?
Well damn, my eyes are open now!
Really? What kind of gun do you own?
Eaker...you certainly sound like a Christian, I’ll say that (Eyes rolling).
I’m happily married, two children (boy and a girl), live in Orange County (one of the most conservative places in the USA).
May God bless you. Have a good one. It’s people like you that allow liberals and Democrats to be in power because they see you as the face of the GOP. Sad, but true.
