    Americans don't like being told what to do...with their own bodies...with their religion...with their speech...with their guns.

    We are a freedom-loving people, Fishgrease. Test that to its extreme and you'll lose both the people you want to get on your side and those who represent them.

      So that doesn't change with Sandy or Webster? If not then every bit of this is just talk. Nothing changes. Again, confiscation and imprisonment is in effect right now for some classes of firearms if you possess them without the proper permits and record-keeping. That class of firearms must expand, or every bit of this is useless.

      Right now, manufacture of high-capacity magazines is in high gear. Same with a number of semi-automatic rifles and handguns.

      Anything not

      1. retro-active

      2. confiscatory with other penalties as well

      is nothing.

      You may be right. Maybe it's impossible, politically. But lets not pretend anything short of that is meaningful. It just isn't.

      It rubs the loofah on its skin or else it gets the falafel again.
