I'm saying the Justice dept allowed knowingly allowed hundreds, if not thousands of guns to cross the border illegally. That's fucked up.

I think they forgot to include this guy:



Former glorious leader of Australia, comrade John Howard. Complete disaster for Australia: staunch conservative, kneejerk reactionary, viciously anti-intellectual and anti-education, anti-choice, climate change denier... you would have loved him, if it wasn't for that pesky gun thing.

That's a pretty damn good investigative story...the best one I've seen in the mainstream media covering this scandal to date.

Wonder what happened to the tumultuous outrage I expected from the political "intellectuals" that normally post in this forum?

The only sound I hear are crickets.

Well your trolling skills have suffered greatly in the past couple of months so I think it's your own fault.

It's too ridiculous to take seriously. I think the only actual effect Obama's had on gun control is loosening restrictions on guns in national parks, and you're still going to compare him to a bunch of dictators, even to the point of trotting out the old Hitler comparisons.

Uh, I'm not comparing anyone. I posted an ad and opened it up to discuss.

The non-existent "outrage" was in reference to Tradpuppy's posted article link.

I guess it's okay for a libertard US attorney general to have a Sgt. Schultz defense though.

Also, I voiced my opinion already.

My view on gun control is this: we've done such a piss-poor job of enforcing the laws that already exist that claims about the efficacy of those laws are produced, completely assembled, from the ass of the speaker. I *think* that the straw-purchase loophole is embarrassingly flawed, and makes it impossibly easy for those people who shouldn't be able to get guns otherwise. I don't think that a uniformly armed populace is necessarily a good thing, and while I think pink's dedication to firearm training to be a little bit creepy, its also the level of training that should be an absolute minimum for the person who plans on consistently carrying a concealed firearm. I feel that keeping guns out of the hands of bad people is more important than putting guns into the hands of good people if the level of mandatory training isn't high enough to make those good people useful. I think "I'm fearful of home invaders" is not a sufficient reason to have a concealed-carry permit, and it horrifies me that Wyoming no longer has a CCW licensing process. I think that if you're depending on a gun to deescalate a situation, you will eventually be shot (or stabbed) by someone who is more afraid of captivity than death. I think that if you continue to frequent areas where a concealed weapon might be useful, and you can afford the ammunition and time to make it useful, you continue to frequent the area in the hopes that you will need that gun. I agree with William Ruger's stance on high capacity magazines. I don't think that private citizens constitute a well-regulated militia, and furthermore that the firepower of the military is such that the weaponry we are permitted to purchase is basically powerless against a military intent on putting down a rebellion. Moreover, I think that leveling the playing field would lead to either even more powerful and effective weaponry reaching the wrong hands, or a dangerous weakening of our armed forces.

Above all else, I feel owning a firearm is most importantly a responsibility, although we have the constitutional right to choose to take on that responsibility. A right is by no means an obligation.
