  •  You claim that you 'aren't scared' (0+ / 0-)

    then you obsess over the highly unlikely chance of being shot & use that irrational fear to justify taking liberties away from innocent Americans.

    That is every bit as unreasonable as insisting on warrantless wiretaps because of terrorists.

    I am not scared. I will not infringe on the liberties of innocent people.

    Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

      a country that accepts slaughter, after slaughter, after slaughter after slaughter and doesn't take the very obvious steps that need to be taken to reduce the occurrence of those slaughters. When I walk outside the house each day I am not scared I'm going to get shot but I know for a fact that 80 people in the United States will be shot each and everyday and mass shootings are happening every week.

      So then you're going to support the Colorado Springs and Pueblo, Colorado state senate elections to remove the GOPers who are now in those seats who will try to pass legislation that will infringe on the liberties of innocent Americans? BTW, nice to see you're favorite line back in the shuffle - "I will not infringe on the liberties of innocent people." Love that one!

      So, are you saying that your are so concerned that liberties will be taken away that you simply don't vote? I mean you must be incredibly conflicted on who to vote for and support - the GOPers how infringe on the right to reproductive freedom, the right to a living wage, the right to healthcare, the right to love and marry whomever your want and the Dems, who want you to go through a background check before you buy a gun.

      You're a fraud Mr. Rose.

        liberties away from innocent people.
        How authoritarian of you.

        " I mean you must be incredibly conflicted on who to vote for and support"
        Not at all. I will not support anyone that tries to take liberties away from innocent Americans. Non-negotiable.
        Thus, if a Democrat in my district comes out strongly against AWB & magazine bans, then I will vote for him/her.
        Otherwise, I will take the wife out for a lovely politics-free Tuesday evening.
        I'm certain that the proceeding Wednesday I won't have to worry about this particular conundrum for at least another twenty years & I can get to work to fix the debacle your viewpoints caused.
        You wanted it.
        You got it.
        You get to own it.
        It's all yours.

        "background check"
        If the President hadn't have decided to propose his plan for a background check alongside a gun ban, I think that bill would have passed with a minimum of political fallout: However, it is understandably difficult to say that gun controllers don't want to ban guns when they push for a gun ban.

        "You're a fraud"
        I am a voter.
        You may have forgotten that, but the party will not.

        Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

          Show me some politicians you support and I'll show you some politicians who take people's liberties away.

          You live in a delusional world - you're overstating the gun issue.

          Of course, anyone can see if they post back and forth with you long enough, you're so called position isn't really a position at all. It's more of a confused guttural scream, like a kid having a toy taken away.

          Those who would sacrifice pizza for calzone deserve neither.

          •  It isn't? (0+ / 0-)

            Huh. I've said gun and magazine bans are wrong because it takes liberties away from innocent people om response to the crimes of murderers.
            Same reason I don't support warrantless wiretaps.

            I've said gun & magazine bans cost the Democratic party voters & hence-elections.

            "overstating the gun issue"
            Tell that to Morse & Giron.

            "delusional world"
            A delusional world is one where you take liberties away from innocent Americans because you fear being murdered?

            "like a kid having a toy taken away"
            A condescending comment from someone that finds a Jared Diamond book to be sophisticated?
            Adorable.

            Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
