Mass shootings are a very small contributor to the death toll. If those two want to prevent gun deaths then increase the sentences of gun criminals. Of course they won’t do that because all the bastions of liberalism would go broke keeping half their urban populations under lock and key.

They don’t care about youth unemployment. It just give the left a reason to expand college aid since college will be unaffordable for more people. One thing I have learned is that liberal solutions are always designed to lead to a need for future liberal solutions.

Medication may be a more effective method than educating patients on good diet and exercise. How many patients have said “yah, yah doc. I’ll exercise and cut out the snacks”, and then gone right out and had a gargantuan lunch?

The warmists will present it as sea level rise to make it sound like AGW is the culprit. The actual science reason is that the land is sinking due to completely natural causes.
Let the Washington corruption sink, but much sooner than another 85 years.
There you go again ! Common sense is so passé.

Most of the other candidates aren’t preaching a sanctmonius message of saving the planet from the evils of CO2. Its quite hypocritical to be telling everyone else to be frugal while she spares no resource for her own convenience.

Trump is going to flame out. I can see him attacking McCain’s politics but when he goes after good conservatives without having anything better to offer from his own record, he’s gone too far.
are you really surprised?
what record does he have to offer anything from? his 4 bankruptcies maybe?
Please define good conservatives. Their certainly are not many left in this year 2015.

So, one might conclude that Obama and Hillary helped to create and arm ISIS.

We don’t want capitalism, we want a free market economy. Capitalism is Marx’s term, calculated to demonize the free market. So here are your creative, innovative, disruptive ideas Hillary.
Reduce regulations so that businesses are free to be creative.
Reduce taxes so that businesses have the money to innovate.
Disrupt the leviathan government we have and get off the backs of business and the citizenry alike. A LOT of us just want Washington to dry up and blow away.
Doug: I detested the Far Left radicals who prowled our streets in the 60s. This new crop like Hillary and Obama - in government positions - is far more detestable...and dangerous to our freedoms and our economy.

Maybe they hoped they’d bag the Choomer in Chief himself.

The record of people who carry is not one of opening up in a dark room in a panic. Unlike the bad guys, we who carry really would care if we hurt an innocent person. No legal gun owner wants to lie awake at night with regrets.
Ever wonder why these nutjobs pick movie theaters? One big clue, without exception they are gun-free zones. When was the last time one of these shootings occurred in a gun shop? What do you think would happen if someone tried it?

Every day that same message comes from me to the Cursed One and every day my middle finger flies high towards the White House.
Everytime I look up to the TV and see the face of ANY member of that family, I "salute" them. When I heard their voices on the TV or radio, I "salute" them.

@Welltouched, The Second Amendment states that the right of the PEOPLE ( not the states or the feds) to keep and bear arms is not to be infringed. That means no creative government definitions as to who is eligible and who is not.
July 21, 2015 at 12:21am
Driving a car is not a right, but the right to bear arms is an enumerated right under the Constitution and is not to be infringed.
Practical application: How many seniors go out and shoot up the mall? I haven’t seen this as a problem. You need to take up a cause that actually addresses as real issue.
July 21, 2015 at 12:17am
The Second Amendment is quite clear, the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. Now the Constitution says people, not states, and not militias. It is stated as an individual right and meant as so.
So now, you want to regulate the right of senior citizens to own arms perhaps of fear of incompetence. How many nursing homes have been shot up by angry seniors? What kind of social chaos has been created by criminal oldsters bearing arms? It doesn’t sem to come close to a compelling government interest needed to regulate a right.

Gender card? That’s the only card she has in the whole deck besides the joker.
The gender card is the only card she has in a deck full of jokers!
Hmmmmm is that where the word Trans-gender come from......neither a "him" or a "her"?
So which is the OLD HAG?
Damn, is the HAG a "neither"?
July 20, 2015 at 5:54pm
Well, seeing that our Constitution says we have the right to keep and bear arms and it doesn’t qualify it by saying “only if the government agrees”, there are going to be a whole lot of people that stand on their rights rather than listen to an increasingly lawless government.
Here’s a good example. NY State passed their SAFE act in January of 2013. The law gave gun owners until April 15th, 2014 to register their AR-15s. At the time it was estimated that there were a million guns that would need to be registered. To date, the state refuses to publish a total number of registered AR-15s. The only number I have seen published came from a local cable news reporter who claims 5000 AR-15 rifles were registered. Now that’s a pretty big disparity between the million claimed guns and the actual number registered. So, even if the claimed million guns was quite a big high, one might say there are a quarter million new felons in NY State right now.
That is something that will be repeated nationwide if the government thinks they can get good citizens to just hand in their guns.
July 20, 2015 at 3:35pm
I’d like to see how they’d propose to enforce this. They could deny a senior citizen the ability to buy a firearm by flagging him in NICS but it doesn’t do anything about the firearms already owned. The government doesn’t know who has what guns in most cases either. A lot of people if they got an advisory letter from SSA telling them to turn in any guns they owned would just wad it up and throw it away.
The rule would make it a crime for any one who falls within its scope to not only try to buy a gun, but to own one as well. If you cannot buy a gun because of a flag to your back ground check, you by default are barred by rule of law from owning a gun. A defacto catch 22 that many innocent people have fallen prey too over the years. A flag is as bad as a felony as far as the government is concerned.
The same way the state driving departments deny drivers licenses to the elderly incapable of driving or the severely mentally handicapped, duh?

It should never have gotten far enough that the diner owner needed to take action, the parents should have shut the kid down.
My wife and I were in a restaurant a number of years ago when a woman came in with 3 young kids. The kids were loud and rambunctious. The mom warned them a couple of times and finally laid down her ultimatum. One more thing and she would pack them up and take them home with no restaurant meal. One of the kids decided to put her to the test and the next I saw she had grabbed them all and was herding them out the door to the car. They hadn’t ordered yet so their was no bill for her to settle. Hopefully her kids remembered that and it helped them to grow into good citizens.
haha, that must have been SOME number of years ago because you just do not see that anymore!

Not as hurt as liberals and socialists are going to be if Obama is wrong and Iran becomes a sponsor of nuclear terrorism. Never forget that they frequently chant “Death to America”. They aren’t going to stop because Obama handed them nukes on a platter either.
The way I figure it, Iran’s best friends in America are the ones most likely to suffer in an Iranian attack. Terrorists usually go for the big city environment because they can kill the most people. Cities are populated by liberals and socialists. So the ones going up in smoke will be the “enlightened” city dwellers while us rednecks in the burbs and the country are all spread out and aren’t good targets.
Great point...I've said the same thing for years now...
Liberal Cities will go down hard and fast under almost every circumstance you can think of.
Terror, riots, food shortages Power grid failure...The Cities will take it on the chin...

When a black stays in school, works hard at a job and succeed he is accused of acting white but when a white person succeeds they are demanded to renounce the fruits of their hard work and effectively “act black”. It seems they want us all in the same ghettos, acting like third-world failures.
