Discussion from a couple of months ago

Draconian Sanctions

Do some of you really think that the left wants to take all your guns away? (Posted on 1/12/13 at 5:45 p.m.) I mean really? You come off as a paranoid and crazy. We already have gun control in this country, the discussion is just where do we draw the line. Nobody is suggesting we outlaw hunting rifles or handguns for home defense. The main discussion is about high powered automatic weapons as well as magazine carrying capacity. Not really the same thing at all.

The point isn't that Obama or anyone presently in Congress is going to take anyone's guns away. The point is that they will start the ball rolling in that direction, establish dangerous precedent and expand the power of the federal government such that years, decades, or even centuries from now, the government WILL be able to take arms from the people.

I'm not THAT scared of Barack Obama...he's only going to have about 3 and a half years to enact meaningful policy change. I'm afraid that his expansion of government will make things easier for someone, somewhere down the line, who doesn't have the purest of motives.

Schakowsky: Oh absolutely. I mean, I’m against handguns. We have, in Illinois, the Council Against Handgun... something [Violence]. Yeah, I’m a member of that. So, absolutely.


I wonder how much she gets paid to be on a council that is so important that she doesn't know its name.

I hope she's robbed at home at gunpoint...when she's no longer in office so she can't use it.

Anyone else notice? Liberals that claim new gun laws are NOT a step on the slippery slope, simultaneously call Obamacare a good step towards single payer/public option/universal care.

Intellectual dishonesty.

This is the biggest issue the progs/libs/left always miss. Really both sides miss. There will come a day when someone they don't like will be in power and they will use these vast new powers in ways you don't like.

This same Congressperson - a member of the Dem leadership, has also admitted that the goal of ObamaCare was to eliminate the Private Insurance INDUSTRY. Yep, wipe 'em out.

This! Young trust Oba with your healthcare, but would you trust Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin, Nixon, or the like? I sure wouldn't.

Schakowsky and her husband are actually real-life, white-collar thieves. She operates on what we call plausible deniability.

Absolutely. Government needs to be restrained as much to protect us from the leaders we don't know we'll have yet as from the leaders we have presently.

This is old news. Everyone should have known their intentions a long time ago, if anyone had any brains whatsoever.

The longer this issue drags on the better it is for Republicans. There are far more Democrats up for seats in the Senate and this issue could single handily sway the Senate to the Republicans while increasing the Republicans margin in the house.

Didn't you know? Pay attention ... there is no such thing as a legislative slippery slope! Our good-hearted liberals do not have an agenda to obliterate our right to bear arms, just assault weapons! People who disagree are fear-mongering idiots!

Guess not. Schakowsky is at least the 4th or 5th I've read about who made a statement of this nature. They've already got a foot in the door, pretty soon it'll be a leg, and not long after they'll be in the house taking the guns---if they aren't stopped.
