If liberals would shut the fuck up about guns they'd never lose another election.

    Right, so let's restrict guns so violent lunatics can't kill people with them. I'm sure a few regulations will prevent people bent on carnage from carrying out their plans. It's not like less access to legal guns will simply create a larger black market for them in a country that has a gun for every man, woman and child. Oh wait, yes it will. But surely violent lunatics wouldn't dare break the law and buy guns illegally, right? If you think stricter gun laws will stem the violence in this country you are a complete boob. If you want to stem the violence you need to figure out how to make our culture less violent, and that's not an easy thing to do. We have a violent and warmongering culture. The people here are fucking nuts. Any meaningful solution will probably start with more funding for mental health efforts.

    FACT: The Corrupt Democratic Party registers criminals to vote and they provide criminals with sanctuary cities.
    The Dirty Democrats really don't care about gun violence.

    I don't know about that. I think they just fail to see that they're pushing for a solution that won't actually be a solution.

    So you think that supporting background check legislation that is supported by 90% of Americans is politically detrimental to the Democrats?

    lol, good one.

    I disagree.

    This is just one issue, out of many, on which the left wrong has solidly staked out the losing position.

    Even if they stopped attacking the Second Amendment, and the right which it affirms, they would still be on the side of illegal aliens, against that of their own country and their own fellow Americans. They would still be on the side of homosexuals, transgenders, pedophiles, and other sexual perverts, against that of decent people. They would still be on the side of violent criminals, against that of the law-abiding. They would still be on the side of welfare parasites, against that of honest, working Americans.

    They are not on the side of the vast majority of honest, decent, hard-working, law-abiding Americans, and increasingly, mainstream Americans are waking up to this fact. Changing just one plank, to take our side on one issue, will not change that.

    As long as the Second Amendment stands, even background checks as a condition of being allowed to acquire an arm are illegal. The only way that such a law could ever be legitimate is if the Constitution is first amended to overturn the Second Amendment. If there is really 90% support for this or any other proposed or extant gun control law, then why is there no credible effort underway to amend the Constitution to allow it? The answer, of course, is that this 90% claim is a flat-out-lie, and those who keep citing it know damn well that they are lying. 90% would be much more than enough support to get the Constitution amended. There is no effort underway to amend the Constitution to this end, because nobody in a position to initiate this process believes that it would have any chance of success.

    And who decides whether background checks are constitutional?

    Have the intellectual integrity to admit it damn sure won't stop with background checks.
