    As an Australian who only relatively recently came to understand the reason for the writing of the Second Amendment, I have to ask, when are you going to exercise that reason? Because if you do not, one day it will be too late, and the drafting of it will be ultimately have been for naught.

    Sure you have enough evidence by now that you do not live under a remotely Constitutional government any more. You should start over. All of them should be run out of office, and you would be better off starting again getting random names out of the phone book instead. The Supreme Court included.

    Those people would possibly not be qualified enough? How long since that last mattered?

    When the economy does eventual;ly improve, it will be *in spite of* obama and the libs, not *because* of them. But they will be there to take the credit.

    “Entitlements are earned”? While I would agree that those who have paid into (read “invested in”, albeit confiscatorially) a program such as Social Security which carries with it a government promise of future return on that investment are due (“entitled to”) the promised return, I certainly can’t believe that this is the way in which she is using the term. Given her history, she is assuredly just advocating for her slacker brothas and sistas who are expecting to be supported in their sloth and gluttony. Bringing home the bacon, as it were; meeting expectations.

    This should be the clarion call, but it won’t be. More destruction of Our Constitutional Rights will be met with very loud hand wringing and explosive blog posting… but nothing else.

    There was a time when such a ham fisted attack on our liberties would have been met with pitchforks, torches and shotguns. The shotguns will soon be outlawed, next they will come for your pitchforks and then your torches.

    Once again all of those who are handy with a weapon and patriotic will do nothing but sit there and take it. Just as every fiscal Conservative, who despite seeing and knowing exactly what is being done to your currency and economy – how everything the government is doing is destroying everything you worked for – YOU WILL DO NOTHING.

    As Mayor for Life Bloombag would say – “SHUT UP AND PAY YOUR TAXES!”

    I am appalled, appalled i say, that we are not taking about a national ban on knives. And, while we’re at it, just think of all the lives we could save by simply banning cars!

    “Yes, things like guns, cars, rope, broken bottles, toxic fluids, plastic bags, medications, and everything else that could be used to take a life, should be banned. But what of the crazies who use these things to kill? Oh no, they must be protected and allowed to walk among us…” — A bleeding-heart liberal

    Everything moonbats profess to believe are just rationalizations for power so after all else is banned perhaps they’ll insist that all places where people congregate should be under central control or outright banned.

    There is absolutely NO reason to curtail America’s 2nd. Amendment. This Amendment is sacred and will not be destroyed by the liberal, special interest pandering, Constitutional hating Democratic Party.

    KHarn, maybe you’re right and going over the fiscal cliff might just wake enough people up. Too many people with no sense of how poverty and slavery sits constantly right outside the door of their home. When substantial freedoms and mod-cons are removed and your motivations change towards things like survival every day… who knows?

    I just pity those who in such a situation put their faith in government.

    Clackamas man, armed, confronts mall shooter

    “As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them,” he said.
    Meli took cover inside a nearby store. He never pulled the trigger. He stands by that decision.
    “I’m not beating myself up cause I didn’t shoot him,” said Meli. “I know after he saw me, I think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself.”

    Maybe I should have checked with the resident moonbats first on whether it’s “too early” to talk about what’s going wrong here (banning guns being the exception, of course).
    At first glance, it’s easy to reason that more guns would equal more gun violence.
    And banning them would reduce this violence
    But it is those “non target” possessors of guns which cause all this mayhem.
    Just as banning the sale of rat poison would likely reduce exposure to non target pets and wildlife
    http://www.latimes.com/news/science/sciencenow/la-sci-sn-supertoxic-rat-poison-sales-ban-20121211,0,2819960.story
    it would leave us exposed to something much deadlier
    http://www.cdc.gov/rodents/diseases/direct.html
    What is actually happening is the opposite of all these “good liberal intentions”
    http://sayanythingblog.com/entry/lets-remember-that-violent-crime-in-america-has-been-trending-down-even-as-gun-sales-skyrocket/
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1223193/Culture-violence-Gun-crime-goes-89-decade.html
    It seems the “non target” gun possessor remained unphased by decades of UK gun bans
    And the group targeted by gun bans are actually the DETERRENT to this violence.
    But I think the left is actually using the excuse of guns to cover up the results of their own warped policies leading to our moral decline
    The systematic removal of god from government institutions
    And replacing religion with all forms of sexual deviancy promoted by same government
    Replacing achievement in public schools with an emphasis on “high” self esteem, and an “anything goes, as long as it makes you feel good now” mentality.
    Dividing, and again sub dividing Americans into specific groups of victims and oppressors, then implying that those victims are not accountable for any of their own actions.
    Generating accusations of racism and sexism with wild abandon against any and all who disagree with them…… over anything
    Promoting the drug abuse, looting, rioting, killing and rapes of the Occutard movement and it’s hate as somehow justifiable.
    Why are riots always over the “want” for more out of Socialism, yet those who wish for more capitalism vote for it non violently at the ballot box, or with their feet ?
    Why, all throughout human history has the most atrocious acts of violence and largest piles of bodies been performed in the cause of increasing government power, yet nobody calls for the banning of liberals ?

    A man was arrested Saturday after firing about 50 shots in the parking lot of a Southern California shopping mall, forcing a lockdown of stores crowded with holiday shoppers.

    50 shots and the only person injured was someone fleeing the scene who injured themselves.

    Sounds like maybe this guy just wants attention or is so virulently anti-gun he’s willing to make a point and get time as long as it results in further curtailment of the 2nd Amendment.

    They’re reporting he “fired into the air or the ground or something”. Didn’t aim at or hit a single person.

    Actually that’s a good thing.

    Two dead after murder-suicide at Excalibur

    A hotel employee, who would not give his name out of fear of being reprimanded, said the woman was working when her boyfriend shot her in the face and turned the gun on himself.

    Friday was not the first time a high-profile act of violence has erupted along the Strip.

    In the summer of 2011, four people were killed in unrelated homicides along Las Vegas Boulevard, including two on pedestrian walkways. In another case, a man fatally punched another man after a confrontation in a bathroom at the now-closed O’Shea’s.

    In September 2008, a 23-year-old prostitute fatally stabbed another prostitute in the neck in the lobby at Bally’s. They were fighting over their pimp.

    A year earlier, a man was killed by a homemade bomb blast at the Luxor’s parking garage. The bomb had been placed by the ex-boyfriend of the man’s girlfriend.

    Earlier in 2007, Steven Zegrean opened fire at New York-New York, spraying bullets down on the casino floor and wounding four unsuspecting tourists.

    Guess we have to ban knives, fists and homemade bombs too.

    Blue-State ‘Suicide Pact’

    Voters in blue states who went solidly for President Obama’s re-election are ironically those who will suffer the most from the tax-the-rich policy promoted by Obama.

    “With their enthusiastic backing of President Obama and the Democratic Party on Election Day, the bluest parts of America may have embraced a program utterly at odds with their economic self-interest,” observes Joel Kotkin, executive editor of NewGeography.com.

    “The almost uniform support of blue states’ congressional representatives for the administration’s campaign for tax ‘fairness’ represents a kind of bizarre economic suicide pact.”

    Stephan – As an American who’s family has lived here since the 1730′s, I have to agree with you completely.

    Weapons have existed for as long as humans have existed. Firearms have existed for centuries. Liberalism has existed for only about 100 years and only in the last 40 years has it become prevalent where it controls education, entertainment and media. In that time we have seen the start of school shootings with the Conn. incident being the latest iteration of gun free zone target practice. Notice that none of the leftists screeching for more gun laws mention that the perpetrator STOLE the weapon he used which has been a felony here for decades and of course there has been a law against murder for all of human history. Criminals, by definition, do not obey laws so no criminal cares whether the elite ruling class bans guns. Anyone who thinks that MS-13 is going to turn in their already illegally possessed firearms is a fool.

    The time has come for Americans to use the power of the Second Amendment to overthrow this rogue government before this goes any further. The little dictator and his henchmen clearly intend to disarm the civilian population thereby allowing totalitarian rule to be the law of the land. If we act now before the enemy can complete their plans, casualties will actually be lower. Either way America will soon be embroiled in a civil war which will collapse our economy entirely and kill millions. When America’s economy collapses, the world economy will collapse along with it and the last piece of the puzzle for global war will be in place. Humanity may or may not survive that apocalypse but I know that I will not. It does not matter to me when it starts, only that I oppose the evil that currently rules us.

    Clean up America, kill a Communist.

    Always look for a silver lining. Never give up hope there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    As painful and dangerous as it is for ALL of us, the ignorance of voters in November just might have an upside.

    Imagine if Romney had gotten in and the Democrats still managed to block appropriate legislation in the Senate and then we went off the fiscal cliff caused not by Republicans (well, to be honest, they DID have a hand in it by caving on debt limits) but PRIMARILY anyway by Democrats and Obama. Isn’t it better to have them obviously obstructing common sense moves in both the White House and Senate as we go over the cliff that is primarily their making rather than have a Republican in the White House to conveniently get blamed for it?

    I mean, if this doesn’t wake up those idiot moonbats, what will?

    In the same way the welfare state isn’t as the hard left characterizes it, a safety valve of capitalism so that the oppressed don’t revolt, but is actually a safety valve of authoritarian statism.

    The sort of guy Obama, the Democrats, the ACLU and moonbats in general demand we allow to have supervision of our kids when they’re most vulnerable.

    Watch it come out that some gay guy raped Adam Lanza.

    Will the press report it?

    Probably not.

    The grieving husband of the Bronx woman who died after being told she was too fat to fly home from Eastern Europe is planning to sue three airlines for a total of $6 million.

    OMG! She’s not fat, she’s ORCA FAT! How could she even be that big & still breathing?

    Can’t tell for sure from the photo, but I would almost say it’s questionable whether she would even fit through the aircraft doors of most non-cargo aircraft. Definitely would fit in the cargo freight aircraft though.

    Investigators found a suicide note at the scene of a grisly murder-suicide where a Brooklyn chemist who helped produce Viagra was apparently shot and killed by her husband, police sources said today.

    Now if there were no guns, would he have simply stabbed her to death? Probably would not have been able to kill himself as easily though – so she would still be dead and he might be alive. Sad she’s gone but thank GOD he was able to save us the cost of a trial and incarceration.

    Gun control isn’t about controlling crime, it is about controlling free citizens.
    The health care law isn’t about providing health care to all, it is about controlling free citizens.
    The EPA isn’t about protecting the environment, its about controlling capitalist businesses in an otherwise free society.
    If the government will control guns as well as it controls the drugs that are on our streets, then we are all in trouble as we will not be able to defend ourselves against all the criminals that will have their guns.
    GUNS SAVE LIVES!
