What the NRA strives to protect is the abuse of such actions by anti-gun zealots who would happily pass a law stating 'anyone who wants a gun is mentally ill so we have to take away their guns because they're mentally ill'.

megrendel do you really believe that?  Come on!  That is the same alarmist fear-mongering the NRA uses to recruit their soft-minded minions.  Give me a break, man.

megrendel my reading on the AR-15 led me to a surprisingly well crafted blog post, written by a veteran/gun lover.  The author says the AR-15 is essentially the same as the military's M4.  The M4 has a few extra features that the AR-15 does not - most notably the automatic firing option. The author says the AR-15 is semi-automatic, has very little recoil, is lightweight, supports high-capacity magazines, and is basically idiot-proof. 

While you consider it suitable for "...plinking and small varmints," mass shooters consider it the gun of choice for killing lots of people - including school children.  So please, tell all those parents that the gun used to murder their children was really designed just to wound people.

If you're interested in the blog post I read It's entitled, "Fuck you, I like guns".  The title sounds like it's right up your (And melcervini 's alley). Here's where to find it.

abetterworld - exactly!  trimble - what would they have been able to do?  the laws allowed him to get the gun, and the NRA makes sure there's no way anyone can confiscate his legally purchased firearms, so what could have been done?  Follow him everywhere he goes so they can stop him when he starts shooting?  Hell, there was a good guy with a gun right there... I guess that NRA talking point didn't work out so well in practice, did it?

KK nuts of dough are OK.  There's a KK factory near me that has this machine behind a glass wall so people can watch the process live.  There's this new donut chain popping up in my area now - Duck Donuts.  Basically donuts made to order.  They're way more expensive than KK, but I find they are worth the extra cost if you don't buy them every day.

megrendel sigh... again, I'm not advocating anyone take away everyone's right to own firearms.  I'm simply saying guns like the AR-15 should not be readily available anymore.  I'm not sure how this keeps getting lost on you.  Have you been licking your bullets again?  Don't you know that lead isn't good for you?

Also, what's up with that "it's because it's black... " comment?  Are you suggesting I'm racist?  Need I remind you that I'm not the one who voted for the Nazi sympathizer who is currently in office?

And speaking of unnecessary comments, the one regarding my opinion as it relates to other people's rights wasn't necessary - I actually do understand that.  I'm not nearly as dumb as you think I am.  But since you brought up rights, may I ask if you believe your right to own a gun supersedes everyone else's right not to be shot by one?  I mean, I get it that when a person is doing terrible things, they give up their right not be shot.  But please tell me, what terrible things were those kids in Parkland, Sandy Hook and Columbine doing?  Was it learning?  Is that the problem?  Is being educated the horrible sin for which children must die?  It's common knowledge that the Republican base is largely made up of lesser-educated people, so maybe that's it.  I mean, that certainly explains why the NRA and Republicans are so adamantly opposed to limiting access to guns, even in the wake of recurrent school shootings.

megrendel How sweet.  Those were great times, huh?  A not so great time was when my brother in law was shot in the chest at age 11 by his friend who was walking in the woods and tripped while carrying his .22 rifle.  Or when my Mom's best friend was accidentally shot and killed at age 9 by her older brother who was hunting rats at the local dump.

I'm sure there are at least as many happy guns stories as there are tragic ones - maybe even more.  But that doesn't make it right that a kid can just go and buy a gun from a private seller like this video shows.  It doesn't make it right that an 18 year old kid can buy an AR-15.  Aw, what the hell... I'll go out on a limb and say that I don't think it's right that ANYONE of any age can buy an AR-15 or any other military style weapon.  

I'm OK with people owning guns, truly, I am.  But I'm not good with people owning the AR-15 or any gun like it.

chokohpek I've never been to a gun show.  Have you been to one in Virginia?  Regardless, just look at the video - the dude who sold the gun is a private seller, or at the very least, is an unlicensed seller - which is the same thing in VA.  US Law says that Federally licensed gun sellers must run background checks.  VA law says unlicensed sellers don't have to do that... and in VA, an unlicensed seller is considered a private seller.

5cats I live in Virginia, I know the laws around here.  Neither the seller nor the buyer committed a crime.  It is legal for anyone to buy the kind of gun the kid bought from a private seller in this state... and private sellers are the main sellers at gun shows.  No age verification, or background check is required.  The only age restriction in VA is related to assault weapons... you must be 18 to buy one of those.  You have to be 21 to buy a pistol.  Moreover, fully automatic weapons with large capacity magazines are allowed, so long as the owner registers them with the state police.

Why didn't Obama do anything about it in 8 years?

  • Obama sanctioned four Russian individuals, five entities, expelled 35 Russian Diplomats, and closed two Russian Compounds
  • Obama met with Mitch McConnell about issuing a joint statement on Russian Meddling - McConnell refused
  • Russia responded to the punishment by expelling U.S. Diplomats, and Trump thanked them
  • Trump Publicly encouraged Russia to meddle in the 2016 election, and now refuses to impose Russian Sanctions

I'm breaking my own rule here, I know - but man, you just open yourself up to being embarrassed so often, it's hard to resist.  Will you ever wise up?

When push comes to shove, I anticipate will Trump preemptively pardon everyone who has made a plea deal in exchange for testifying against him.  This will negate all leverage the special investigation has, and will bring about a nationwide standing ovation by all Republicans who have no interest in truth or justice.  

I think I need to take a break here.  I can't deal with this bullshit anymore.

5cats dude, what part of “please stop talking to me” did you not understand.  I’ve said my piece... I can’t help you if you can’t understand what I’m saying.  Work on your reading comprehension, then maybe we can talk again.  I’m just done with you for now.

I’ve got vertigo from all the eye rolls I’ve done while reading so many of these pro-gun posts.  I’m not sure how you gunnies are missing this very simple point - which is really the crux of the matter:  Crazy, murderous people get guns and kill kids. They do this because it is easy.  The status quo of making it easy for everyone to get guns is not working.  So what does any normal, rational person do about this?  They fix the problem by making it harder to get guns!!  What that looks like, I don’t know.  But it is well past the time to stop avoiding the issue and get to work.

bubba5658 well, congrats on stopping a liquor store robbery, seriously.  While I don’t want to take anything away from this great achievement, I don’t think that’s anywhere near the same thing as stopping a lunatic with an AR-15 from shooting up a school.

I can’t wait until every one of these NRA tools get voted out of office.  With any luck, it’ll be this coming November.  I also can’t wait until the baby-boomer idiots who always vote republican party over country finally start dying off.  They are the reason we are living this nightmare today.  The best part is that they think they are patriots, when in fact they are just being duped by Russian propagandists.  

Hey republicans, tell me, how does it feel knowing that Russia is using the Republican Party platform to destabilize the USA?  How much more proof do you need before you finally realize your party platform is terrible for this country?!?  The goddamn Russians are leveraging it in an attempt to destroy America, for christ’s sake!

5cats apologize?!?  For what??  Not my fault you can’t understand the point I’m making.  I’m saying the NRA lobbies to let everyone, even mentally ill people like the asshat that shot up the school, get guns.  If the NRA didn’t lobby to get trump to overturn Obama’s initiative that would have prevented the kid from getting his AR-15, this tragedy wouldn’t have happened.  So yeah, the NRA is culpable.

A word of advice, you should probably stop trying to engage me in debates.  You always lose, and you wind up looking foolish.

5cats not denying anyone anything.  If gun  lovers want to exercise their "right" to own a gun (which is not really what the Constitution is saying, but whatever), then they can do it.  It's not the Government's fault that gun lovers are too damn lazy to get off welfare and get a real job.  Why don't they just leave McDonald's or Walmart and become CEOs of their own companies?  Hell, anyone can do it.  This is America!!  Everyone knows the deck isn't stacked against poor people in this great country!  It's the gun lovers' own damn fault that they can't make good enough money to pay for the gun tax.   And if they can't afford it, oh well.  Get a better job, losers.
