"The 2014 elections are coming up and patriotic citizens should think hard on voting out all Democrat members."

About 90% of BOTH parties needs to go, plus the two "independents."

The only facts contained in this letter is that President Obama does have multiple members of the Muslim Brotherhood working in his administration from the beginning.

This administration supports the Muslim Brotherhood, despite Egypt (and other Arab nations) declaring them a terrorist organization.

Rick, do people like Shulski and Shaman make you "proud to be a liberal"? Both parties have their share of radicals.

Alan, Here's a clue. If you want to be taken seriously, try leaving out all of the childish name calling and stick to the facts. Neither one will work on a dyed in the wool liberal, but normal people respond to the truth, while no one is convinced by your tactics.

Another example of a homegrown typical conservative.

You can't find ammunition because the conspiracy driven right has been buying it up as soon as it is the store along with guns. The election of Obama as President and the conspiracies that have been perpetuated since his election has been really good for the gun industry. It is so good they can't keep up with demand.

Chuck, democrats are not without blame. We have had several mass shootings in the last decade and many liberal leaders seized the opportunity to get on national television and vow to pass strict gun laws, to include the elimination of many weapons. As a result, many guns and ammo was purchased in the event that Congressional Democrats and the President got their way. Add that to the fact that the government was also buying up huge quantities and the supply can not keep up with the demand. If you want the supply to return, get Feinstein and others off their soapbox.

Cap, do you see a necessity in high volume clips? Do you not see the value in background checks for ALL purchases of weapons? That includes all gun show sales, private or otherwise. The "soapbox" that Feinstein and others are on tout calls for legislation on those very issues.

It is a sad statement that those calls drive a paranoid rush to stockpile both weapons and ammunition. No one was coming after their guns, as said the message by the right. Are you suggesting that we quit dialog about sane and practical gun control to calm that paranoia?

Bi-tch, moan, complain.... the part that really scares me is that Reeder, Sham, Rick, R/Am. and Z/Z think the Conservatives are the problem. Being tracked, phone and electronic messages stored and a law that says you can be arrested and incarcerated at will mean nothing to them.... yep, they're on the Liberals side so nothing will ever happen to them.... until they're set up....

Senator Dianne Feinstein: "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an out-right ban, picking up every one of them... 'Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in,' I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren't here." CBS-TV's "60 Minutes", February 5, 1995

Sideliner, I have no problem with background checks, but I do have a problem when Congressional leaders who make comments such as this in an attempt to ignore the Constitution. Make no mistake, there are those in leadership that agree with her as well as some on these very boards. That's not paranoia, that's fact.

JohnZook,you say: "a law that says you can be arrested and incarcerated at will mean nothing to them"

Means nothing to whom? That all began with the Patriot Act, GW, and conservatives.

But on a different note, anyone seen the latest NYT report on Benghazi? Interesting read that refutes many Republican arguments on the issue.

Agreed, Cap... it is fact there are those that would remove guns entirely, just as there are those at the other extreme that would arm children, teachers, playground monitors, etc. Sanity resides somewhere in the middle.

Those that give knee-jerk reactions to either of those extremes are as much a part of the problem as those screaming at each pole.

Sideliner, do you feel that strict gun control would reduce crime and keep guns out of the hands of criminals? And if not, then what would be the reason to place strict limits on the second amendment?

Mr. Zook want to explain how it is the liberals then. You like every conservative who posts blames liberals every time. Don't be telling us that it is government you blame because that is not true. Conservatives constantly blame liberals and liberal government policies. When they want to limit government they want to limit the liberals in government. BTW your post like the letter had nothing to do with conservatives but how bad liberals are. All you do is trash talk about liberals and liberalism but in your eyes that is a good thing.

Capricorn1 you say restrictions we say regulations. Do you really think that any person should have any type of gun and modifications of that gun at their disposal? Why do you want guns readily available for any criminal activity?

Chuck there are already hundreds, if not thousands of gun control regulations and they have done nothing to reduce crime or keep guns out of the hands of criminals.

"...do you feel that strict gun control would reduce crime and keep guns out of the hands of criminals?

Cap - would relaxing gun laws have the opposite effect? Nothing is going to out-and-out STOP gun violence, but if the NRA is against universal background checks because they supposedly don't deter crime, then why not just do away with ALL background checks?

Would, say, legalizing fully automatic weapons keep those weapons out of the hands of criminals?

"...there are already hundreds, if not thousands of gun control regulations and they have done nothing to reduce crime or keep guns out of the hands of criminals."

Cap, come on. How could you possibly know that? Because gun violence hasn't been eradicated completely? Its not an all-or-nothing proposition, and I find it inconceivable that universal checks wouldn't have SOME (perhaps even significant) positive effect on reducing gun crime.
