I reckon my Dad thought males were more stubborn, but what would I know about THAT?
lol! Point taken.
The patriot Act, to the extent that it violated the 4th and 5th Amendments was wrong and should be repealed. GCA/NFA violate the 2nd Amendment and should be repealed - let people have silencers and short-barreled rifles, but punish them severely if they use any weapons for crime. And, no, I don't hear the GOP leadership standing up for the Constitution as much as they should. The GOP is not nearly as bad as the Democrats, but they make no effort to recover lost freedoms when they have an opportunity.
At this point I really cannot argue with that statement.
Hope the RNC sends letters asking for money.....I am running low on toilet paper.
This is from the NY times.
All of you are believing anything they say?
how long have you all been on this site?
yeah the NY times would never think of dividing Republicans with fake info would they?
what do you base that on , this article from the NY times?
Long time GI!
Looks like the GOP is about to cave again. Here is hoping the House GOP stands firm..
Barf. Breakthrough on the gun debate to means to me the Democrats caved and want to repeal all existing gun laws.
Surrender my rights, by all means gentlemen, surrender my rights. It’s not going to give you any problem, is it.
I say we send the NYT and all of the RINOS an empty shell casing.
I think your note is a great template for me to send to my senator and the RNC.
I am absolutely livid that you are even considering the possibility of allowing a vote on legislation offered by monster gun-grabber Senator Harry Reid. Has the GOP learned nothing from the last election? I want to know if you plan on supporting Harry Reid over your constituents.
I want someone’s head on a plate. Will it be yours at the next election? Will you contribute to fortifying the conservative party or will you be a pretend conservative, voting with the liberals. I want to see you, in the news, in the papers, on tv and youtube, fiercely and publicly defending my constitutional rights or I want your resignation. If you don’t do either, I will work tirelessly to help unseat you at the earliest possible moment. Which is it going to be?
If gave birth to a son that turned out like Harry Reid, I'll kill myself as well.
Keep in mind that his very same idea is why her predecesser voted ObamaCare out of committee.
Do these people ever learn a damn thing.
Actually the filibuster was watered down to numbers because nobody thought he’d actually do it.
It’s all political theater.
The House of Representatives won’t pass a gun bill.
You trust Boehner more than I do.
BS!!! Just to have records is compiling into a national gun registry. It will be computerized records and can be merged and sorted meaning they have a database.
History is replete with examples of how it works:
They all said it was impossible to happen to them.
Crime will never go away.
As long as there are people, some will prey on the others. Or at least make life harder for everyone. And I’m afraid there will always be psychopaths ready to commit mass murder.
But I am not a psychopath, I’ve never hurt a fly, so I’m unsure how restricting my 2A right solves this problem.
It doesn’t hurt for everyone to remember this is the New York Times, and they have a vested interest in demoralizing us.
Nope. I trust that congressional districts are relatively small.
What if he had Democrated himself to death?
What you typed is logical and patently obvious, so that simply means this bill is defacto registration.
“We’re moving forward on this bill”
You’re moving forward on a lot more than this bill, Dildo. You’re setting the stage for tyranny.
And since HE brought it up, it’s fair game: too bad his dad slept with his mom BEFORE committing suicide.
...Reid, who earlier Tuesday invoked his own fathers suicide by gunshot to implore consideration of the legislation......Non-Sequitur Nonsense Ping.
We are about to get screwed one more time. If they the politicians[both Republican and Democrat] with redefining the Second Amendment. a/k/a “Background Checks”. We are screwed. Because I will gurantee that they will find somethimg in the “background” of everyone that is not on their approved list to disqualify them from purchasing a firearm. At its best, this is not going to end well. They are determined, come hell or high water, to do what they have in mind. Are we just as determined?
Anytime RINOs get together the result is not good for us.
rinos and gop elite leadership, and democrat liberals and socialists - two sides of the same coin.
DEATH to any Senator who votes to take 2nd Amendment rights. Treason can be Constitutionally punished by death, as it does not work "corruption of blood" beyond the life of the convicted.
Actively break the terms of (a law, agreement, etc.): “infringe a copyright”.
Act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on: “infringe on his privacy”.
We have to primary all the RINOs. And once we’re in, close the damn primaries!
Ummmmm YUP. That's pretty much why I left the party as of January this year. After 37 years of loyal service and many donations I have dumped them to become an independent! I must say, I thought I'd be pretty "down" about it all, but I've never felt freer.
Don’t worry: this will never pass. There are a lot of Democrats from conservative districts who will be in tough elections. So calm down.
-the smartest Republicans and conservatives in the room, March 2010 right before Obamacare passed....
I confess I like Palin too but I think anyhow
The salacious crap in that book flared her off..
Now ....no one really
Ayotte has often acted in tandem with Graham and McCain.
Don't. They are sissies who would take that as a threat - it would give them the vapors. Better to be a little more subtle and think about how people who hate freedom would spin our effort. Remember, we are dealing with pure evil; they are not in any way constrained by integrity.
Well the gop certainly isn’t a conservative party.
They lost me that’s for sure.
Dem lite is more like, let’s go along to get along cause we all be making lots of money.
Hell with em.
If they cave on this one, I am officially off the grid and done with the Republicans. Never vote again, just let them all go down the crapper with the rest of the country. EVERY important vote, they give in, talk a big game, then give up. I’m done, let the country go full communist, it’s what they deserve. Unfortunately my children and grandchildren will have to fight it.
"Bolster school safety"?
Please, pray tell,
Somebody please remind these jackwagons what happened in 1994.
Here’s some information about about a message received from the NRA yesterday. The NRA is right. The Senate Bill is an improvement over current law that gives so-called mental health professionals too much individual discretion. Tell Senators to support the Bill. It requires more due process than currently exists in law and policies. It requires that more about an accused individual’s mental incompetence be actually proven, and it respects remedies for the accused/cured.
S. 480: NICS Reporting Improvement Act of 2013
Oppose all attempts to legislate more background checks, BTW.
