I doubt the recent defeated law would have prevented the killing of babies. A question for you. Do you think in the near future (5 years) there will be any mass killing from someone who didn't have a background check for the weapon they use?
As a side note: do think someone's child would have stand a better chance of living if the shooter had only a magazine that holds ten rounds instead of thirty? Thanks for the question.
I will take your advice when you tell what school of mind reading you attended that convinced you that fear is in my writing. Last time I checked anyone who has a strong viewpoint may not be fearful but just have a strong viewpoint like you SEEM to have.
Most of the replies seems to back up your understanding that race is still the MAIN deciding factor in Albany. As for the presidential election, the nature of humans was for someone that is of the same race to get the vote of that race. The other VERY STRONG nature of humans (especially) in this area is to attack the person because they have a different viewpoint.
All of these points and views are opinions (including mine) so the debate will continue far beyond our lifetime.
My only advice to those of you who think government, policy and race is very important, I say keep getting up every morning and one day it won't matter so much.
Nadine, sadly enough the program will be touched. And as you can see everyone has someone to blame. It's the nature of our society that people hate change if it may affect them. No matter where the cut go, someone will be mad and those that it don't effect will be glad, such is the nature of people.
I see why there is no comment on this writing. What do Senators Pat Toomey, John McCain and Mark Kirk plus Ronald Reagan and George Bush have in common with background checks?
If 'some people' would spent a little money and buy a plane ticket and see the country, they may be shocked to know how the world is changing.
Yes you are right "we" can't prosecute a felon for not filling out the required paperwork BUT a prosecutor can file charges FOR possessing a gun. If you find time (because I'M busy writing my next opinion on gun control) could you ask those that agree with you in their replies on my subject - name at least 3 laws that are NOT VIOLATED by anyone. There is a trend in most of the replies saying - this law would stop ANY criminal from purchasing a gun. I really don't mind people in this area of the country from disagreeing with me, in fact I expect it. The real truth is, I believe it's only a matter of time when stronger gun laws will pass. If you don't believe me, pause for a moment and say to yourself - since my birth, do I have more privacy or less? Follow the trend whether you like it or not, thousands of laws are passed each year. Have a nice day.
So what you are saying towards my quote - that NO ONE would change their mind and that the word some meaning 1, 2 or 3 people would not change their mind if a terrorist purchased a gun online. Amazing that you feel that confident about every person in this country! I guess then you believe everyone is dogmatic in the same view you have. I suggest if you have not - start traveling across this country and overseas in the next ten years.
It was a good try, but - if you are going to quote someone then quote them. I said " For those that are paranoid" meaning there are parnoid gun owners like they are parnoid advocates for gun control. For some people they are dogmatic on everything (there is no gray area) and normally I don't write to them or respond to their comments (not meaning you but anyone who can't debate without attacking). Most of the arguments of my writings want to side track MY subject and I say to them WRITE YOUR OPINION and see how people will side track your subject.
It's sad that people WITH guns are so paranoid about their safety. Yet no matter how many guns we have, we can't protect our children at the movies or the mall if we are on a fishing trip, at work or working on our car. So why be against a law that would require all gun purchases to have better background check. Certainly some on this page would change their mind about this is law if a terrorist purchased a gun online and kills a family member. But it is the old thinking that 'if it is not happening to me, then leave it alone'. Many of the Newtown children were dismembered in the shooting, c'mon people start caring beyond yourself.
Finally, a reply that makes sense. No, I didn't jump on any bandwagon. I'm a Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Lakers fan when they win or lose,lol. First, the polls were mainly from the media and private polling companies. If I had my way ALL gun owners would have to register their guns (including me). And like auto and home ownership there would be a database on all transactions. If the meaning of "sheeppeople" is defined by going along with the majority then we should include church goers, tax payers, showing patriotism and don't forget the 'majority' that hate Obamacare.
