“If all you’re doing is watching Fox News and listening to Rush Limbaugh and reading some of the blogs that are churning out a lot of misinformation on a regular basis, then it’s very hard for you to think that you’re going to vote for somebody who you’ve been told is taking the country in the wrong direction,” the president continued, adding that it’s “going to be hard to overcome” such structural divisions.
Don’t you ALSO mean to say:
“If all you’re doing is watching MSNBC and listening to Rachel Maddow and reading some of the blogs that are churning out a lot of misinformation (media matters, huffington post, ad infinitum) on a regular basis, then it’s very hard for you to think that you’re going to vote for somebody who you’ve been told is taking the country in the wrong direction,” the president continued, adding that it’s “going to be hard to overcome” such structural divisions.
I didn't believe there was even an event and for those silly atheists to believe there was one is laughable.
I go to the Reason website all the time, already commented there today, but I'm far from an atheist, and only a few of the commenters are. There's very little anti-religion discussion, and most, as libertarians, support religious liberty.

Not that people haven’t tried, but check out FairTax.org.
Great tax plan with no downfalls, except the elimination of the IRS and the removal of the federal government’s ability to steal more and more money from the TAX PAYING people.

18 Pa.C.S. § 6109 License to Carry Firearms issued on a “shall-issue” basis. *A LTCF is required to carry a firearm within a City of the First Class (Philadelphia), in a vehicle, concealed on one’s person, or during a declared state of emergency.
Unlicensed open-carry everywhere except Philadelphia or in/on a vehicle.
So, if he was in Philadelphia, then the police acted properly, within the law, and anybody carrying a firearm must have a permit in order to carry. Thus, while I dislike gun laws, in this case the police were right and James Moody was clearly mistaken as to his rights.

This is old news, but, what the blaze, and all the other media outlets, fail to mention, is that of the group of kids involved, the few that did NOT pick up an play with the gun were raised around guns in the home. They even tried to stop the other kids from playing with it.
Seems that being raised around guns and taught to respect them is ancillary to their agenda of making guns look dangerous and evil. Perhaps the parents should raise their children better.

“despite being found not guilty of the alleged crime.”
Not crime… ACCUSATION. Thats the true BS part of it.
We already have laws that people with restraining / protection orders against them cannot possess firearms. Nor can people that have been convicted of abuse.
So now, we have to allow confiscation for the mere accusation? Nice…

You are mistaken. The 4473 is a federal requirement and cannot be skipped or having a pistol permit taking its place. However, the formal FBI NICS check that is performed may be bypassed if allowed by a states agreement with the ATF which in some states allow a Concealed Pistol License (et. al.) to double as the background check. However, the 4473 must still be filled out when any dealer sells any firearm.

Actually, the “gun show loophole” really isn’t. As it happens, people may go into a gun show and buy a firearm without a background check. However, this is only done through private sales, not dealer (licensee) sales.
The fact is, it doesn’t matter if it is in a gun show, or back yard, or police station parking lot. Every private firearm owner is allowed to sell a firearm to another individual without performing a background check or the 4473 paperwork.
Of course, there may be state or local laws that are different. And the private firearm seller must be sure the buyer isn’t restricted from purchasing a firearm. But the bottom line is Americans are allowed to buy and sell firearms without government oversight, unless one is a licensed dealer.
Yup..and the biggest lie is "you can buy any gun over the internet" This is simply not true..period. One may ORDER a firearm from an internet site, but the firearm must be sent TO a federal lFirearms Licensee, who then must perform a GVT-supervised background check..b4 the gun is transferred to the person.
2A most gun show operators have spcific prohibitions specifically against private party sales on the premises.
Fred762 - Maybe if you have one of those 3D printers, you can “you can buy any gun over the internet” and print it! LOL

“and I’m just pointing out that kids living in homes with guns are also homes where the majority of deaths by kids killing other kids with guns happen.”
You are mistaken.
According to FBI and CDC 2012 statistics, only 5% of unintentional child deaths were due to kids living in homes with guns, which does not make a majority. The majority of child deaths are due to gang related violence which occurred outside the home, and while tragic, I don’t consider suicides as unintentional firearm death as it is premeditated and acted upon for that specific outcome.
 March 1, 2016 at 11:14am
And do you know how many children that is?
According to FBI and CDC crime statistics for 2012 (look it up):
411 children (age 14 and under) died from gunfire in all of 2012.
69% were due to gang related violence
26% are suicides
This leaves only 94 unintentional child deaths for the entire year of 2012. Yes, 94 too many, but in perspective:
1,446 children die per year in transportation accidents.
Parental neglect and abuse account for 80% of all child deaths (1,274) which dwarfs gun deaths.
1,917 children die each day from malaria around the world and 15 men, women, and children per day are murdered by a convicted felon in government supervised parole/probation programs in the U.S.
All of this data is available for your own research online with the FBI and CDC statistics.
And not once did any of the statistics mention the ownership of the firearm, thus, while quite possibly true, your statement is absolutely unsubstantiated.

Yes, harsh, but in a truly free America, should be allowed. Let the people decide if they want to do business with racist bastages, for example. If I were to approach a restaurant that had a “No Blacks Allowed” sign in their window, I would think to myself, good for them, and then proceed to go elsewhere to spend my money.

Great, just what we need. Another BLM president that’s also anti-gun and anti-cops. No thank you.
Why does your website come as a very untrusted website? Are you trying to infect anyone that goes to your website? Looks like yet another troll trying to screw everyone up.

@Sargeking; Oh, and by the way, as for higher education, how about nuclear engineering, electrical engineering, controls and industrial engineering, and a computer science minor?
And no, I don’t really care what “higher level” you rose up to, as I didn’t even try to comment on your education or lack thereof without knowing anything about you. But congratulations. Good for you.
And apparently, since you haven’t responded, that must have “quieted you down”? As you said?

At the very least she should also be charged with illegally carrying a concealed hand gun,under the influence while in possession of a handgun, as well as illegal possession of a hand gun.

@Sargeking; I’m intrigued as to how you know what history I know and don’t know, considering you do not know me in the least. For all you know, I’m a history professor. I’m not, nor do I claim to be. However, I have always studied history. I find it fascinating. And I study history from source documents. Not the bs progressive history they want us to learn.
That said, no, you did not quiet me down. As it happens, I have a real job, and a life, unlike progressive trolls on this site. In addition, theblaze does not make replies known (there is no follow function on a thread one posts in), so in order to even know you replied to me, I have to take the time to go into my history and look for them, which I rarely do since I have more important things to do than to respond to progressive trolls.
That said, most of your posts seem to me that you are a conservative, so I’m not really sure why you are attacking me with bs statements anyway.
So, you should likely try and “get a grip” yourself, since you were responding to me without a clue as to what you were responding.

Would be much better if they ask all these supporters about Hillary’s policies, letting them believe that they are trumps first… When they spout off about how they hate all these policies, THEN tell them they are actually Hillary’s policies. (I did that with Obama and you should have seen their wide eyes when I told them they were actually obamas policies. Unfortunately the morons still voted for him anyway).

This kid takes a suitcase with a bunch of wires and electronics, and a count down timer, into school and becomes the greatest thing since sliced bread. In the meantime MY 8 year old son gets suspended for pointing with his index finger while his thumb was pointed up.
