    So a spoiled rich kid who`s never accomplished a thing on his own has formed an opinion. Oh yeah, I`m interested in hearing that.

    Oh, look! A new cat post, I`ll check back later.

    He`s got a point though. The NRA opposes measures that they supported in the past. And by in the past, I mean before before Obama. The NRA sucks Dawn Keighbals.

    To hell with background checks. Anybody and everybody should have as many guns of as many kinds as he or she wants. And if the US population drops a million or two, well, big deal: we got rid of the slower ones.

    I think that cigarette companies should be able to put asbestos back in cigarettes if they want. Or sewage sludge. Or whatever other stuff they used to put in there And, too, that air bags and seat belts should no longer be mandatory for car manufacturers to include in cars. I think that all Public Health initiatives like water standards and pollution standards should be deep-sixed, and that the federal government should keep its hands off my damned bazooka!

    Gun manufacturing is a billion dollar industry. If you don`t think that the NRA is simply the advocacy wing for that industry then I don`t know what to tell you.

    The NRA doesn`t give a s.hit about your personal rights. It cares about whatever it takes to have as many people buy as many guns and ammunition as possible.

    @jtrebowski: That`s odd... Obama now supports things he opposed in the past too!

    I`m sure that just a "vast right wing conspiracy" though...

    Our Leader has always supported putting more anti-missiles in Alaska! It was a DIFFERENT "Senator Obama" who voted against it under Bush... (it`s true, btw)

    He`s lucky his grandfather isn`t alive, he`d have his ass beat. Not for his asinine resignation, but for selling the family business to a foreign company.

    Promoting gun ownership rights might also support the gun & ammo manufacturers. Is that such a bad thing? But does it matter that you can own a gun but you`re not allowed to use it?

    If you are too much of a b.itch to defend yourself from getting your ass beat by a high school kid without needing a gun then maybe you shouldn`t go out at night stalking people and pretending to be billy badass.

    Even households with NRA members overwhelmingly supported background checks. Clearly, the NRA isn`t even representing their own members well.

    "Even households with NRA members overwhelmingly supported background checks. Clearly, the NRA isn`t even representing their own members well."

    The NRA doesn`t care if a criminal buys a gun as long as somebody buys a gun. The gun industry makes just as much money from a responsible citizen buying a gun as it does a career criminal.

    @FoolsPrussia: There already ARE a lot of "background checks" in place in the USA! This proposed Bill did NOTHING to make America safer, freer or in any way improved.

    It DID cost tons of money, make law abiding people less free, and open the doors to MORE LAWS just like it! That was the Democrat`s PLAN A! They bragged about it. Weren`t you paying attention?

    "I would confiscate every firearm in America" Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein

    Again I repeat myself: People support the idea, but this Bill was NOT 90% supported by any measure.

    I support "speed limits" but to lower the legal highway speed to 35 Mile Per Hour? Um, NO! It was tried before (55) and FAILED by every measure imaginable...

    5Cats Thank you! They`re deliberately reporting that 90% of Americans want background checks done before you buy a gun.. DUH! THIS bill was MORE... and as Obama put it "expanded background checks" which is NOT what 90% want.. not even CLOSE.

    HG: "The NRA doesn`t care if a criminal buys a gun..."

    That is a bullsh|t statement right there.

    What the NRA doesn`t want is everyone that legally owns a gun being treated like a criminal because they might want to give or sell one or more of their guns to a relative or friend.

    They also don`t want to see people`s HIPAA rights violated by overzealous gun grabbing liberals, like what is already happening in New York with their new SAFE act.

    "That is a bullsh|t statement right there."

    No it isn`t. They oppose background checks on gun purchases. They oppose tightening the regulations on internet and gun show purchases. They oppose any measure whatsoever that might make it harder for a criminal to get a gun.

    @Holy - you mean they oppose the background checks that already exist? or the fact that a background check is already in place for an internet purchased firearm? They oppose those checks? or they oppose the fact that in some places in order just to buy a gun (legally) from a friend or relative you have to have a permit to purchase? They oppose all that?

    I`m confused. We already HAVE background checks.

    Yes. They oppose all those things.

    "We already HAVE background checks."

    Yes. Despite them. They opposed every measure ever put in place. If we had NO background checks right now and the president tried to install background checks the NRA would oppose it.

    The background checks we have are inadequate. A convicted murderer can get out on parole, go to a gun show (in my state) by a semi auto rifle, then buy a conversion kit at the next booth, then get online and buy thousands of rounds of ammo.

    So propose then, a proper background check that would prevent this, since none of the proposed legislation would have.

    Just how many deaths do the Bud people indirectly cause each year?

    Don`t get me wrong. I`m all for the guy selling the swill he calls beer and making a mint. Just pointing out maybe just a wee bit of hypocrisy.

    i saw "Adolphus Busch IV Resigns..." and was excited thinking that he quit Anheuser Busch and was dissolving the company for the good of all man kind, but alas i read further and was disappointed. if he wants to do good in this world he can start by making real beer.

    Alcohol, used properly, kills yourself.

    Guns, used properly, kill other people.

    See the distinction there?

    Haha. Yes. Because I have a counterpoint to your pointless point I`m a twat. Keep beating the drum. If you don`t possess the ability to conjure an intelligent retort then name calling will definitely showcase your brilliance.

    It is a simple distinction. Alcohol deaths are suicides. Gun deaths are homicides. I have no problem with suicide. People can make their own choices. If you can`t make that distinction then you probably really are as dumb as your 3rd grade lunch table name calling implies.

    Sooooo, it`s safe to assume a drunken driver that kills someone while driving a vehicle committed, suicide?
