Yeah. Good luck with that. The GOP is completely in the pockets of the NRA. Corporate lobbyist power at it's worst.

Well it's a good thing they waited. They might could have actually passed something had they tried.

With all the guns out there now, I'm not sure it matters. For sure, people with past psychological breakdowns, who fly-off-the-handle, should not be allowed to buy guns.

How many assault rifles do you own? And, do you shower with them?

"It (semi-automatic weapons) has no socially redeeming value"

Unless surprising innocent men, women, and children and massacring them have social value.

Unless he has a class 3 license, probably none, despite the radical lefts continuous lie to the contrary.

Now Joementia is going after all semi-auto weapons. Does that include shotguns?

Stupid love.

Probably indicative of the o ruse Dems thinking the midterm wrist slap was a validation of their policies.

O ruse = obtuse.

So your alias is asserting that anyone who owns a gun is legally entitled to own that gun?

Thinking about it, isn't requiring requiring someone to pay for a gun infringing on their rights to possess one? They should be free.

Can't speak for that person but I didn't get that vibe at all. I sensed a subtle jab at ignorance of firearms nomenclature and regulation. A comment not at all uncommon in these type threads.

These type threads also generate just genuinely stupid s*** like this; "Thinking about it, isn't requiring requiring someone to pay for a gun infringing on their rights to possess one? They should be free."

Perhaps not but it was a referendum on the Republican agenda which was pretty conclusively rejected.it which was predictable considering the things Rick Acott and Lindsey Graham were saying about Social Security and abortion. The GQP blamed Trump which wasn't entirely wrong but the comments made by the rwo I mentioned above also resonated among non-extremist Republicans who may be a dwindling breed but who are still an important part of their own party who do not like thw ext
remism that seems to be taking over their psrty.

I don't think he is.

He is just going after the scary looking ones you might find in a video game.

I think that it's possible that many progressives only experience with guns is in a video game.

Or a department store shooting. I don't know why he says dumb stuff like that... it's never going to happen.

Which will occur first:

1. The "imminent return" of Jesus Christ to rapture his most fanatical followers to heaven; or

2. Confiscation of our guns?

Both seem to be taking quite a while. I'm betting neither occurs, but I keep praying for item #1 because it will be a more peaceful world after those looks are gone.

Because the audience doesn't really care about the legal side of it.

Joe says this is what he wants...he can blame it on intransigent conservatives when it doesn't happen.

Comments like this are only intended to appeal to a specific, politically illiterate demographic. The same type of person who would think that there was a constitutional pathway for Trump to be reinstalled as president.

A lot of them are going to or already in prison so they'll have time to read up on it.

I don't know that they want to.

Trump is a New York Socialite Reality TV Star. When you look at everything he has done through that lens...it kinda all makes sense.

That's true. Too much detail to fit on a hat.

Idiocy of your alias can be the only explanation for you coming to that conclusion.
