"Sorry, I presumed we were talking about gun control. What I'm curious about, is how eliminating pistol grips, collapsible stocks, or bayonet lugs will save lives? How many lives will be saved by only allowing law abiding citizens to carry 7 rounds in their 10 round magazines?"

Ripely, simple answer: it won't. But, it will make the people that think "assault weapons" are used in 99.999999999999% of crimes feel better even though the real number is more like 1.5%. No matter for them, as the facts and figure only matter when they work in their favor.

Wow, lol!!! Racist? You're reaching there "Murican", really. You were bored I assume, so you just had to start this back up? I'd just checked for new postings but hadn't replied to any in days. Anyway, you're starting to get dangerously close to a "Did not!/Did Too!" argument. Too stupid for me. You go ahead, I'm out of here on this thread. You go watch out the windows for tanks and such if you're bored. I know you think they're coming. You really sound a little angry there, "Murican". The "shine" gettin' to ya? If you're really at a loss for something to do, you can always go burn a cross, or put on your white sheets and try to scare someone. Must be tough to be an ignorant *******. Oops, sorry...Murikin!!!

Dang crissy you sure are a racist. You use a racist name calling to try and make a wasted point. You can make all the comments you want to try and prove your not a liberal but the stripe up your back says you stink like one so therefore you fit the bill of being one. You know if it smells and looks like a skunk then it probably is one. Same applies to liberal agendas, if you act and stink like one you probably are. It's not you I don't care for but your liberal Marxist ways.

Geeze, "Murikin", you really are a "Bubba". I made that comment to dispute your labeling me a Liberal, and no way shape or form does it even imply a brag or any effort to impress. Read a little slower, maybe sound out the bigger words, you'll do better that way. By the way, I know you don't care for me much, but will you let me know when the invasion starts? I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

"By the way, I have written more than a few columns in this newspaper that" and that is supposed to impress anyone at all. I read a couple of them, real drivel to them.

"What part of the NY SAFE act will actually save lives?" According to many law enforcement officials it will make little if any difference in gun crimes. So other then maybe taking a few mentally impaired people off the streets it has no value except to make some people feel good about their hero's wasting tax payer money for no reason.

Sorry, I presumed we were talking about gun control. What I'm curious about, is how eliminating pistol grips, collapsible stocks, or bayonet lugs will save lives? How many lives will be saved by only allowing law abiding citizens to carry 7 rounds in their 10 round magazines?

How is it legal to force citizens to sell things that they legally purchased? What fact supports that there is justification for that?

Will felons be sure to get their universal background checks? How many people who were refused firearms sales due to failing a background check were legally prosecuted anyway?

What part of the NY SAFE act will actually save lives?

Not that I'm not concerned about drone attacks, but I thought we were talking about the 2nd Amendment & gun control.

Well, I can see this discussion has degenerated into as much "reality" as a congressional fact finding junket to Thailand. Let's try to keep it civil gentlemen. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Agree to disagree without resorting to elementary school tactics.

Now there you go again, 1Laona, basing your entire opinion on YOUR interpretation of just ONE Amendment. (The way the NY law was passed has nothing to do with the 1st Amendment, good try though, but I do have issues with the way it was passed, AND, believe it or not, MUCH of what it contains) But have no fears, there's room in "Murican's" bunker for you I'm sure.

By the way, I have written more than a few columns in this newspaper that Liberals have attacked with a vengeance! Liberal? Far from it. Unfortunately, with people like "Murikin", it's all the way in or all the way out. There's no room for compromise, other opinions, even facts if they get in the way of pure dogmatic beliefs. I, on the other hand, agree with some issues espoused by moderate right wing individuals, and many articulated by moderate left wing individuals. I support neither when logic succumbs to dogma and rhetoric. I believe decent citizens can carry and own guns. That ends my Liberal status right there. But because I also believe in some forms of gun control, in "Murikins" eyes that makes me a Liberal. (or a Marxist/socialist/communist. All the same to people like him)

"Murikin", you call yourself American and say what YOU think it stands for. That's not the same thing as what it really stands for. And it's obvious you have no idea what "Socialist" or "Marxist" really stands for, what they mean, and most importantly what the difference is. More proof that "American" means "Murikin", no doubt.

Ripley..the facts were in reference to the Holder/Rand argument about Drone attacks in America, and the killing of Americans by the Military. I listed factual information on when that could be done, always has been legal to done, and how this wasn't new or different. I mentioned that US AF jets went after the hijacked jets on Sept.11, and if they could have, they would have shot them down. That's no different than what Holder tried to say, clumsily, but still totally misrepresented by Rand, and he knows it. Martial law does exist on the books, and like it or not, can be declared. That's what I said, those are facts, I didn't invent them. Whether I like it or not is meaningless. "Murikin" has decided to ignore facts and act as if this is some sort of President Obama issue. To be honest, if you look at whom the military supports the most, and likes the least, It was G.W. Bush that passed the Homeland Security Act. And "Murikin" is worried about Obama and Liberals? Wh

RipleyResident, some of those on the left just do not like the fact I am proud to call myself an American with all it has stood for. They want to change what being an American is about into something a socialist or a Marxist would be proud of. Not gonna happen with me. And I can see many others in here believe the same thing. Christopher and Regalski both hate that fact.

I'm not insulting all American's by bastardizing the word to "Murikins", I'm insulting the right wing bubbas who seem to feel they have a lock on calling themselves Americans or "True Americans or "Real Americans or Patriots, with or without the words "Real" or True" before it, and who seem to think they urinate Red, White and Blue. Those who think anyone and everyone who doesn't agree with EVERYTHING they say is a Liberal. It was Liberals who ended overt discrimination in the south, even died for it. Were they wrong? It would appear so based on how you feel about all things "Liberal". I doubt you've ever given 5 minutes of thought to what that word really means. So yeah, I feel you're one of those "Murikin" types. I, on the other hand, am a normal, unbiased, middle class American citizen, but I don't feel the need to claim that like some sort of prize.

Christopher, does Regalski know you are name calling? You should be ashamed.

Please, briefly, list these "facts" you mentioned earlier that all you liberals think us right-wingers can't follow. I asked already, and you just keep poking American...

Drivel while insulting Americans when he bastardizes the word American. Just what kind of person does that. Surely not one who is a true patriot.

Christopher, what facts are you talking about? The vast number of people annually that are killed with "assault weapons"? The fact is, the 2nd amendment protects our right to keep and bear arms, liberal opinion thinks that that is open to interpretation. It is not.

Glad to see you right wingers continuing failure to understand factual information and reality. As for frothing at the mouth, if you see this as frothing at the mouth, I can understand why you feel the need to prepare for an invasion. You "Muricans" keep on keepin' on! Glad to see you still can't argue facts, but that's typical of the right wing.

Before I forget(again),I'd like to thank Mr. Makuch for a good article.Anything that gets the left-wingers frothing at the mouth has to be a good thing.Being a Right(done in accoordance with moral law,equitable,righteous)-winger just makes you feel good about yourself.No wonder those leftys here start wavering.If only they had a kind word from The King,Prince or even Chucky or Nancy-are-you serious to bolster their spirits.
