They are called political props, Eleanor. They come and they go.

Google Cindy Sheehan.

If what they’re proposing will have no direct impact on the problem they claim to be addressing,

then they must be challenged as to what “problem” they really ARE addressing.

>>> ..... will be more powerful than the NRA

You see, Eleanor, if NRA becomes tyrannical, we would rise up and fight it too.

“The culture of guns is beginning to go through a transformation in this country,” she added.

Damn right! Concealed carry laws have been passed all over the place, the people are arming themselves and putting armed personnel in schools. And they are telling their elected representatives to get in line!

I don’t even believe that Giffords was shot. She is an actress. She will be as powerful as anyone else who wants to be on the cover of Glamour.

Eventually the Newtown families will tire of the spotlight, and catch on to the fact that they’re being used by the left. As for Gabby, well, a lot of us have had enough of her for a lifetime.

The last thing Eleanor wants is for Congress to come to grips with the problem of mad men wandering about the countryside arm in arm with the ACLU.

She'd rather oppress all the innocent than CATCH and STOP a single schizophreniac before he kills.

I suspect Eleanor's real concern here involves her own personal life, and those of her friends. There are, after all, people who still keep crazy aunt Mary chained up at night, 'but she's at home'.

“The Newtown families and Gabby Giffords are in the gun debate to stay, and over time their voices will be more powerful than the NRA.”

She’s a poet and she doesn’t know it.

Maybe some idiot public school teacher can have her students write that on a piece of paper in crayon and stuff it into their backpacks.

They think that if the parade enough victims, they will get their way.

Maybe we should parade the families of victims of people killed by illegal aliens.

Indeed it is. Ever since 0bama got in office, people have been trying to get their hands on as many of them as they can.

Note to conservatives the anti-self defense victim disarmament people like Clift are not merely wrong, they are EVIL. But I know conservatives are trained to be nice docile creatures who look to the moral authority of the establishment left, well I say bunk to that.

I love the way you put that! That is exactly what Obama and the leftists were hoping, that all of us would "think" with our emotions instead of reason and logic.

We lost so much with our arms that these communists Democrats are no longer interested in America. Problem is with the lead communists in the White House we are slipping into that den of communists Countries. If things don’t change soon America may no longer be the land of the free. And our lame politicians are worth nothing.

Victimization has been such a fetish as a supposed trump card over all other considerations among Leftists that, what is an oppressed victim to do when society doesn't oblige them by sufficiently oppressing and victimizing them? Why they have to create a hoax crime!

Feeling sorry for someone who lost their child doesn't mean that I am going to give up on the Constitution or surrender my natural rights.

When many hundreds died due to a false story about desecration of the Quran at Gitmo - would trotting out the families of those who died be a convincing argument that the press shouldn't be able to publish the stories (even false stories) that they want?

Somehow I am unconvinced that the ‘argument’ (i.e a naked emotional appeal, as you pointed out) goes both ways for them.

Eleanor does not know anyone who wants the whitey riff raff owning guns. Eleanor and her pals don’t need guns as they have door to door car services, armed body guards and police details to keep them plenty safe. Besides if they don’t report on diversity race violence and crime, it does not exist.

There is nothing worse to Eleanor than a whitey surviving an attack by attacking back. Armed and independent natives is way to uppity and dangerous for socialist global “ruler” wannabes.

"The culture of guns is beginning to go through a transformation in this country," she added.

Yes. It's shifting from the old regime of hunters, plinkers, and target shooters to people who practice with their semi-autos and do concealed carry. It's increasingly about second-amendment rights and personal defense.

That ain't workin' in your favor, Ellie Mae...

She is one of the rudest individuals I have ever seen attempt to engage a panel debate on anything. It’s ok for her to speak uninterupted on the McLaughlin Group program for years, but when it was Pat Buchanan, Tony Blakely, or the conservative on the panel at the time’s turn to chime in, she could not help to start interupting them trying to raise her voice shouting them down. It is disgusting.

You have that right. We can count in literally millions if not billions of pages the bad laws that have been birthed by the victimization insanity and for what? Homicide rates still go up and down with they only thing that really seems to impact them being law enforcement and keeping violent offenders in prison. What worked 100 years still works today and all the gun control laws and bureaucracy that has accumulated since has just been noise in the machine meant to not control criminals as much as to produce power structures so that politicians can control citizens who have did nothing wrong.
