...the senators in Washington took the cowardly route. Preserving their own jobs is more important to them than doing what the overwhelming majority of the American people want. Fire them! Vote them out! They don't care about you!

This is as pissed as I've ever seen our President.

Have you seen the poll my commenter refers to?

Now that you mention it, yes. It often depends on how the question is asked. I love the first one in that poll: Do you approve of the way Obama is handling gun control? "No" can mean, "no I think gun laws should be tighter" to "he's not leading" to "no I think gun control laws are too tight already."

The only people I see ranting about "no background checks" are the most conservative, and I am surrounded by them. But the average person seems to favor tighter laws. I mean just basic logical, common sense stuff.

I just reapplied for my CCW. Let me tell you I have to go through a back ground check- again, and everytime it expires. I can't get it if I owe child support or any fines or back taxes. I cannot have any sort of substance abuse in my past, or disorderly conduct, or restraining orders, or domestic violence, or DUI. Getting arrested for anything. All immediate grounds for not getting one and having it made invalid. I had to fill our 5 pages of legal and permission and promises pages. Trust me they do everything but stick a probe up your anus.

I have to take two tests. Seriously, how much more background checks do they need on me?

Gun control isn't about guns. it's about control. I'm tired of every minute of every day the govt is taking something away from me.

Plus the congress ignored all it's own statistics from the FBI. This was just more of the left's tyrannical statism and govt expansion. They don't want us to have guns. .

I would like for a guy to have to reload before he can get 30 rounds off. I would like all those things you're screened for to apply to everyone else who wants a gun, too, because right now that's not the case. I would like a ban on semi-automatic weapons.

Call me crazy, but I think I speak for the majority.

Again, I call horseradishes. The Left own the White House and the Senate - if it didn't want Americans to have access to guns, at the very least we would have the background checks and an assault weapons ban, neither of which was approved. (Well, the background checks WAS approved by a legal majority, but it didn't meet this bullshit 60-vote threshold someone's decided to go against the Constitution to put in place of late.)

As I told someone else today, I think a fair gauge of the majority of the Left on guns is a Democrat Congresswoman who was shot in the head who still supports the ability of people to own guns.
