    School children and theater patrons are being wiped out by the dozens by nut cases using assault weapons. Sen. Feinstein has proposed legislation in California designed to ban the possession of the type of assault weapons used in the recent mass killings. A front page article in the L.A. Times several days ago noted that the Republican legislators in California are boycotting the presentation of the proposed legislation. Not one Republican will be in attendance.

    And Republicans are wondering why they can't seem to win elections of late.

    Look, we know the reasons the GOP is losing. It's quite simply because the stupid and lazy now outnumber the smart and productive.

    How about going after the nut cases?
    Rather than taking guns away from law abiding citizens.

    I would think the real reason Republicans cant seem to win elections lately is that we only hold general elections once a year and there seems to be a short term memory that prevents people from remembering countless Republican electoral victories these past four years.

    As for guns, why do you seem to think disarming law abiding citizens is going to stop shootings?

    Do you realize that Feinstein is a state Senator from Calif. and therefore can not introduce state legislation?

    And yet its Democratic Senators that are running for the hills when ti comes to Fienbitches gun grab. Gun Rights is one of the few things Republicans are winning on, especially if Obama decides to push gun control.

    You really dont see that?

    Because it is stupid and unconstitutional. Thats why even dems do not want an assault weapons ban. Assault Weapons Ban Lacks Democratic Votes to Pass Senate - Bloomberg

    How? The first things to be cut when state and local (and I'm guessing federal) money nooses are tightening are education, mental health and jobs programs - never goodies for the military, the rich or big business, of course. How do you "go after the nutcases" when you take away what little (and it is very, very little) mental health support available to them?

    When will you people that like SHEEP follow everything the MSM writes as GOSPEL!!!
    Tell me why doesn't the MSM get on CHICAGO where with the strictest gun laws 516 homicides FAR exceeding the 88 total killed by 12 Mass killing incidents in all the USA!

    WHERE are the headlines about that EQUAL to just what was written about NewTown???

    Google search About 23,200 results (0.37 seconds for "gun deaths in chicago"

    BUT Newtown
    an event that happened less then a month ago..? In one town ...
    Google Search: About 63,900 results (0.43 seconds for "kids killed in Newtown"!

    NOW PLEASE EXPLAIN why the MSM totally biased reporting about Newtown... but there 2/3rd fewer citations for Chicago gun deaths where 1,985% MORE DEATHS occurred then Newtown...

    PLEASE SHEEPLE THINK ! WHY are the MSM supporting the Obama administration to take the last vestige of control Americans have over their government??
    YOU idiots that are becoming SO dependent on Obama the Messiah to protect you ... grow up! Grow a set! Be adults ! Take responsibility!
