Maybe they shouldn't be reminded. Let them cast their votes and be seen and counted. They can go campaign to their constituents and whine that the crime is caused by their failure. Let their opponents bury them and get them out of Congress. It's not just guns: gun policy and laws are simply illustrations of the overall attitude of a government.

No, don't remind them. That way it will be the "death warrant" of their political career and we'll be able to elect pro-gun people in their place.
Link Posted: 2/15/2006 5:45:48 PM EDT
The AWB wasn't a blip on the radar, as far as crime prevention, either when passed or sunset.

No gun law has done anything to reduce crime. In fact, there is a lot of evidence that gun control increases crime.

So, let's get over this guns = crime thing.

It is not about crime prevention.

The goal of the gun controllers is CONTROL. They want no resistance from the people. They don't want us to be able to "just say no" to whatever their latest nefarious scheme. If they decide that tomorrow they are going to herd up groups of people and march them into cattle cars, they don't want anyone taking potshots at their JBT's.

Just imagine how fast the Nazis would have run out of storm troopers if European Jews had the kind of gun ownership rates that American citizens have.

It is not about crime. It is about monopoly of force. The socialists/communists want all the power.

Even Chairman Mao said it, "Political power comes from the barrel of a gun."
Link Posted: 2/15/2006 5:52:29 PM EDT
Gun control as a political issue is dead, post again if it makes it out of comitee (it won't)...actually strike that post again if it gets out of comitee and schedualed for an open debate. Neither will happen.

They are the usual suspects: a reliable nest of communists, traitors, crumb-snatchers, beggars, thieves, and hydraulic lawn-jockeys, spewing self-righteousness and entitlement at the flip of a switch. They are the pixel-sized elements of the target at which Jehovah's almighty J-Dam of vengeance will be directed on judgment day, whe He at last determines to cleanse the Earth. The eyeless, multi-eared exoskeletal vermin gnawing the marrow of the bones of such as Jefferson and Madison, they flee with a gut churning skitter whenever the Constitution is invoked. They are the conscientious remnant, who can be relied upon to speak truth to power - and loudly - so long as the grand jury is out of session and the per diem is guaranteed. They are so many 3 pound blocks of government cheese with carboard wrappers and arms and legs and character which being neither hot nor cold must be spat out. With every breath they draw they argue forcefully for monarchy or oligarchy or anarchy or any archy but the archy that got drunk and shit them out near the levers of power. Their mere living indicts Abraham for having importuned the Almighty in advance of His cleansing of Sodom and Gomorrah. They breathe and thereby beg Jesus to reconsider, to invert time, and to remain in the bosom of the Trinity, aloof from the sufferings of His poor creatures. Individually, they are proof that .22 long rifle cartridges cost too much to waste; collectively, they are a fleshy, self-important rubber stamp reading "Deposit Only" and visible only on the back of a welfare check. One day they will die. Thank God that even then rats and roaches will hunger, or those Democratic stalwarts' lives would have been entirely devoid of purpose.

Heaven grant that a hundred years hence, in the pre-dawn gloom of some dusty crossroad, a penniless, toothless vagabond without fortune, hope, or prospect may find that an undercooked tamale has forced him to seek untimely relief for the griping of his bowels; that he may thoughtlessly squat over the open end of a trickly culvert and in the groaning release of his tired and crusty bung shit upon their unmarked and disremembered grave.

And this is a surprise?

Virtually every one of these moonbats is a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Until 1999, they were all members of the Congressional Caucus of the Democratic Socialists of America. That year they were outed and they quickly changed their name.

Their leader is none other than the only avowed Socialist in Congress, Bernie Saunders from Vermont. Their former leader was Dennis Kucinich from Ohio.

It is the avowed aim of all Democrats, Socialists, Communists, Progressives, and Libtards to rid "society" of all firearms. They firmly believe that only the police and the military (and the Party Secret Police of course...) should have guns.

A vote for a Democrat is a vote to disarm yourself! If they regain power in Congress...you can rest assured that this will make it to the President's desk.

REMEMBER THAT MY FRIENDS THE NEXT TIME YOU STEP INTO THE VOTING BOOTH!!!
