12.14.12 It harder to vote in this country than it is to acquire and use a firearm
Sportsmen’s “rights” are not worth a single innocent life, period.
Assault weapons, armor-piercing bullets, automatic and semi-automatic weapons have nothing to do with home self-defense.*
Meaningful waiting periods with serious background checks and without loopholes do not threaten home self-defense.*
The NRA owns the entire GOP — lock, stock, and barrel — and a plurality of Democrats, as well.
We will now see if Barack Obama has any moral fiber in him whatsoever. Because, gun violence is now THE most pressing issue facing our country. If the president cannot lead on this, what is the point of the presidency?
*I find home-defense arguments for private gun ownership to be ludicrous, because guns at home are much more likely to be used against those we know than against intruders. But I accept that taking away all those pistols in dresser drawers just ain’t gonna happen.
