Just remember for everyone like you describe on the left, there are probably 10 or more on the other side.

Add the current military marksmen whom are not very happy with the left, and you can double that to 20.

Lets hope it never comes down to that.

Regards, Kirk

Actually think of all the un-reasonable time/efforts that would be saved if the entire lot were not able to have a say as they now do... OMG! Imagine all that would get done.

And the benefits to be reaped
: job openings for those in need and those on all forms of assistance that are able to work but don't. More housing units available.
Less waiting in about everywhere.

And with the population reduction we might have cleaner cities, highways and with less traffic it goes without saying cleaner air...

Gee all I see are positives.... Lock and Load, at the ready, aim, fi...........

Hey a guy can dream right?

Bloomberg and Moms Demand Action [sic] are on your side. Not to mention the Brady group.

When your candidate said she wanted Australian and British gun 'buybacks' (AKA confiscation) we know that means background checks, right?

And that's the problem. Overall I've got no problem with the laws in Va. which tend to mirror those in about half the states. And I'm a staunch 2nd
Amendment supporter. However, Va. is an example of left wing incrementalism.

Our governor ordered all reciprocal agreements rescinded without any input from anyone.

The reality is that there is virtually no problem with guns in the hands of legal owners. So no amount of increased background checks, model specific bans, or fancy electronic guns is going to slow down the illegal use of firearms.

You don't think libs want to ban guns? Then you are delusional. Baltimore just banned toy guns.

Baltimore OKs ban of replica guns - Baltimore Sun

We need only one law for firearms and other weapons. If you use a weapon with intent to cause harm or death to an innocent person, then you will be punished by death or whatever punishment removes you from society.

It's dismissive. And shows a lack or willingness to be humble and listen even if we disagree.

We already have that law. In every state and in many cases from the feds also.

In fact I find that Liberals are more Christ like in their churches than the right who are often angry and judgemental. Liberals are more willing to be inclusive and forgiving in their Christianity. Also, Liberals like my son serve in the military and are willing to sacrifice their lives for this country. Another notion the right often gets wrong. So lets stop pigeon holing people based on politics. Thanks
Again, king of the pretend ignore list, there is only a single item in that rant that is supportable.

One question: If you can't read something, then how do you know what the author has figured out?

You have stopped after the first phrase. "I can't read something" Then you would have been accurate.

Yes. Too bad that is not what the gun weenies want. They want total confiscation, and they make up all kinds of reasons for this gun control law and that gun control law. I don't believe they know anything worthwhile about any weapon, let alone firearms. I don't believe those who have the standard "I am an NRA life member, but...", or I am for the second amendment but...", or "I am an expert with firearms and an excellent marksman, but..." type retort whenever firearms are discussed.

You only hear what you want to hear. Maybe you could tell me exactly what Hillary actually said with a link.
