I guess you guys forgot the GW manipulations. Obama is not trying to take normal citizens guns. He is trying to help us. I think he cares about defenseless children. Of course you do not believe it and that is your problem.

From the morning news:

20,000 M-16s (that's the fully automatic variety for the liberally stupid) were stolen from an unguarded warehouse in Kuwait.

The gov't that does not trust its citizens to possess semi-automatic rifles seems to "lose" many thousands to criminals

Well, there goes my first cup of coffee all over my laptop. I did get a hearty laugh out of it though.

No doubt.

You'd expect he'd make a better effort to hide the shackles & chains (he's used), to "lead" them; from one event to the next.

"Shame" is not a word found in Obama's dictionary, nor a response he's capable of producing. He appears to be pretty much soulless.

At 32 guns sold per minute under the current administration; the President ought to be on the cover of Gun & Ammo magazine as man of the year!!

Hey, NO ONE has gotten a bigger laugh, than those T-Baggers who'd hustled their way into WELL-paying Congressional-seats, in the name o' "GRIDLOCK"!!!

These were (more-often-than-not) the same folks who'd (also) complained about other people receiving Welfare.

Yep, I'm sure it was Rhame, MrSheman. As far as our second invasion of Iraq goes, we gave Hussien plenty of warning that if he did not comply with the terms of his surrender from the first Gulf war, that we would enforcing the terms with our military. Hussien could have prevented the whole thing by allowing UN ininspectors back into his country to verify that he was not playing with nuclear bomb making material. Congress voted on it and you conveniently forget. At least George W. DID do something. Your idol better get busy on that idiot in North Korea before he ends up with an atom bomb parked on his front lawn.

Meet Don521, the perfect Obama voter. Don't bother to think through what you're being told. Just be content in knowing that he's trying. It doesn't matter that what he is trying to do will only make us less safe.

Obama actually said Monday after flying Newtown families in on Air Force One - "This isn't about politics! Let's make it a little harder for our kids to get gunned down"

You never hear them explain in a believable way how their plans will further that goal.

Better watch it Rick. Toomey is one of those "tea baggers" MrShaman likes to carry on about.

Yes and the NRA is now after Toomey.

You know what is truly amazing PA has stricter guns laws than the nation does. You are fighting against what you already have.

Political shame belongs to the Second Amendment advocates. Their guns are more valuable than life.

It is interesting that the author decided not to describe what implements the killer used to cause the deaths. I don't think that was an oversight.

Are we allowed to insert any other Amendments into that statement?
