    Naw, reckon not, self edited, I have a very high respect for the office, but not the man currently occupying it.

    The truly sad part is that the man currently occupying the office has little respect for the office, and even less for the other two branches of the government.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    He has his own little "occupy( the Oval Office)"movement going on....and we are paying for it.
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Problem is some bureaucrat in the SSA will be able to attach a No Sale red flag to a persons record based on who manages their financial affairs. The onus would be on that person to fight and prove they still have 2A rights with the Gooberment. Be expensive, time consuming and almost impossible to get a decision reversed.

    Could you imagine how the Libs would scream like raped apes if they tried it with voting or free speech, but somehow the 2A is OK to whittle away at not the rest which are considered sacred............................ just another step by Obammy to act on his own when he can't get Congress to pass everything into law he wants.

    Same ole liberal claptrap being spewed on the news ............Safety/Children/Common Sense/Guns don't reduce crime...."Already a Law" on the books oh really, no it is not using financial abilities as a metric for who can buy a gun. And yes they will abuse the hell outta it and interpret it any way they want.

    This is the truth. Obama don't get his way he throws a fit and then does something underhanded to get his way. He's a snake in the grass (No I'm not in the grass) and we need to get him out of office and replaced by ANYBODY but Hillary. I'd feel a lot better with Bernie Sanders and he's an out an out commy from hell. But he seems straight forward, which I think we could learn to deal with (No surprises). Of course I'd feel much better with ANYBODY on the Republican side of the Aisle. We don't need anymore commies in the White House.

    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    Straight ticket voting Republican = Straight ticket voting Democrat. No difference; same disease.

    Yep. The symptoms may 'present' differently, but the end is always the same: Absolute conviction that one side is obviously good, right, and all that is well with the world...and absolute conviction that the other side is the Devil, Hitler and bad cooking rolled into one.

    Then Trump should even be more appealing than even Rand Paul ? After all Paul is a Creature of State and then National Politics...

    Hey Alf,

    You got any graphs showing the number of shooting deaths perpetrated by gun-crazed octogenarians? That could really nail down the need to put this issue into the forefront of American political issues.

    I don't think it is so much the old people that is the issue, but the 28 year old person "disabled" by their drug use.

    I only spent 15 seconds looking and found this. I'm sure it's not a major issue, and again I go back to where do you draw the line and how do you ensure due process? Until then better to err on the side of permissiveness.

    OK, there's one data point. What software do I need to extrapolate that into DNC talking points graph? :uhm:

    I know some of these people that can't handle their financial affairs, and no, I would rather not see them with guns. That said, it paints with too broad of a brush and sends us further down a slippery slope so I can't agree with it.
    If thats the standard to take away rights, then there should be no problem going back to only getting to vote if you actually pay taxes. Something I am all for.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.
  • bisleybisley Senior Member East TexasPosts: 10,815 Senior Member
    ...If you have someone who has been a life long gun owner and 2A supporter, taking away their access to their guns, especially at a time when they feel the most vulnerable could be a difficult or even dangerous proposition.

    I'll tell my kids to keep an eye on me, in the next few years. They can buy me out when my cheese starts to slip off the cracker...like I did with an elderly uncle. :tooth:

    As good as this sounds, I couldn't support it. People tend to vote with their own interests in mind, and this would soon leave a portion of 'us' on the outside looking in. I think our efforts would be better spent reducing/eliminating 'entitlement' programs and increasing the ranks of the tax-paying public. Just my .02

    Not if you tax the poor, which I'm in favor of - not because I want to crush the poor, but because everyone needs to bear the burden of being taxed, so that they pay attention to politics. I want to see liberal democrats fighting to lower taxes on poor working folks, instead of increasing their dependence on Uncle Sugar with extravagant gifts.

    That's fine with me. With EVERYBODY having skin in the game, you at least increase the chances of folks paying attention...although reading some posts here (or facebook, any other media) illustrates perfectly that having skin in the game doesn't directly equate to paying attention.:silly:

    Having more Far Left / Socialist types paying attention could be troubling

    Why? I want EVERYBODY paying attention. I have no illusions that everybody will agree with me, nor should they. Vive le difference!
