Laughable

It is laughable really.  Our City Council is considering a bill to make street side panhandling illegal because it is a public safety matter.  And it is.  But the last time I checked the panhandlers had not engaged in mass killings with assault rifles.

But where are our gutless Mayors, Governors and City Councils on the issue of reasonable gun control.  Well, they are hiding in the bushes because they are frightened by the NRA and its resident and numerous gun nuts.  I would advise these elected cowards to read "Profiles in Courage" by JFK.  It heralds those brave public officials in history who opposed popular sentiment to  make our country great.

We don't need gun control we need shit bag violent criminal control.

Unfortunately, they are not the only ones. Police departments all over the country are silent on ANY gun control measures - no matter how minor. Astonishing, given that they are the ones put most at risk by the insane amount of assault rifles on the streets. Were they to push for some gun control measures, I suspect it would be very difficult for the NRA to take them on.

NBC reported tonight the USA, with 5% of the world's population, owns 40% of all the guns in the world, with no mention of our military spending with a dedication of a bust of Dick Cheney at US Capitol. And we do not feel safe in this county??? WHAT THE FUCK?

Fighting the war on guns will end up the same as the war on drugs. It will never end. The only ones who win are the drug cartels and the gun manufacturers. Within a month the gun brokers will start the good ole fashion gun shortage scare to increase panic buying and inflated prices and drug dealers will do the same . It is a never ending cycle of fear mongering at its best, and like the past the people flock to stock up before they say that the Sitting Boogeyman ( Obama) proposes a new ban,(which he never really does) but it's a good scare tactic by those who will profit emencely!! If you wait long enough Susanna will find a way to blame Bill. The Republican " not my gun" legislators won't even vote to ban those on terror watch list from purchasing guns. LMFAO

And I wonder if you still possess your pistol? Should be a time to turn it in...you think?

Still own guns. Hunting firearms and two pistols. But no assault rifles or sub machine guns.
