First of all Karma, the NRA isn’t the only gun org out there fighting for our 2nd Amendment. Although they are the biggest, they are not the most aggressive. In fact, many members think they aren’t aggressive enough. I have seen them stumble a couple of times, only to be backed up by another organization. Yes, we believe the 2nd protects all of the other rights. Without the 2nd, the people have no teeth and your government would walk all over the Bill of Rights. They many do it anyway with the socialist we have up there now. Also, you might want to back up this post with, Huffington post is a known leftest news outlet.

Second, I get the feeling you would rather run and hide than stand up for your country, or you like the idea of our country becoming a second rate entity. A lot of crap has come out after the election, held back by the Obama administration. Crap that every you should be upset about, operative word being should.

I’m well aware of the GOA and their rigid stances on ANYTHING gun related.

BUT, why focus on the “little yapper” in the group rather than the “big dog”. It sure as hell ain’t noise that bites ya in yer ass. Sure, there’s nothing at all wrong w/ showing just how far nuttiness on an issue CAN MAYBE get.

Yes, we believe the 2nd protects all of the other rights.

NO…the Supreme Court protects the Constitution which IS all the other rights. I thought even YOU would know this since ya so often luv to tout how our 3 branches of govt. work…..to the point of derisive crap thrown at “foriegner”.

The egocentricism of the NRA on this issue of “protecting the rest of the Constitution” is one of the huge PR failures that plagues it. The NRA’s reliance on this ideology is what makes most of the public see them as overly zealous on their luv affair w/ their guns.

It’s much easier to find support for a cause when the cause hasn’t so much bullshit in it. That YOU are unable to listen to most of the presentations that have been made on this forum greatly demonstrates this quite adequately.

Without the 2nd, the people have no teeth and your government would walk all over the Bill of Rights. They many do it anyway with the socialist we have up there now.

OH, FUCKING BULLSHIT

Quote Chicken Little: The sky is falling….the sky is falling.
Since this little story is more than 25 CENTURIES old,,,
one might well surmise that “alarmist” such as YOU are nothing new under the sun
But, at least YOU are in good company w/ a CHICKEN.

Also, you might want to back up this post with, Huffington post is a known leftest news outlet.

Ya’re barely even making any sense w/ this sentence.
Try again.

Second, I get the feeling you would rather run and hide than stand up for your country, or you like the idea of our country becoming a second rate entity.

NO on the first.
YES on the second….only I’m not shooting (< < pun..lol) for us being “second rate”.

NOW, as for YOUR thinly veiled calling ME “chicken”….see above.
Such is the “gun nuts” fall-back position. Those who believe in gun CONTROLS just have to automatically be COWARDS.
That is merely another of the PR faux pas the NRA nurtures and gives credibility to the arguements of the “anti’s”

A lot of crap has come out after the election, held back by the Obama administration. Crap that every you should be upset about, operative word being should.

Yeah….a lot of crap such as the secession movement.
Among other “pissy, sore-loser” bullshit.

Being a conservative (in parts) doesn’t mean that I don’t give merit to socialistic values that best serve a huge, complex society such as ours. Esp. when we already have a lot of socialist traits (how fucking many times do I have to tell that head up YOUR ass that there are many, MANY forms of socialism? ? ?) in America. YOU have been given a whooooole lot of valid discussion on this. AND, per usual….YOU opt to IGNORE it. Operative world here is IGNORE-ant.

One thing most conservatives just can’t wrap their minds around is how we are far more like an oligarchy….more specifically, a plutocrisy. They simply would rather “run & hide” from this truth than up for their own best interests. I don’t see this as being cowardly….just (usually) very ignorant.
AND, upon being informed to the point of NOT being able to ignore the obvious any longer,,,continuing to believe their silly shit is just simply STOOOPID.

This is something that EVEN YOU should be upset about, operative word being “should”.

I think he’s saying to add a disclaimer as the Huffington post carries a ‘liberal bias’ and so cannot be trusted. As he’s said before, ‘facts lean liberal’.

From Jhco:

It already is a second-rate entity. Our job now is to correct the plummet, and bring it back up to being a first-rate country. It hasn’t been there in many decades.

A government and institutes that the military and police are not only a part of but have the expressed duty to defend and keep safe.

The UN will interfere. They are one of the proponents of the OWG. They would like nothing else than to input in the infrastructure of the United States. they are already trying to interfere with our laws in different ways.

The cost are not worth it. The only interference you would see would be blockades or embargoes from the outside, trying to keep the violence contained in the USA.
If its a serious Rebellion, they can get their influence much easier and cheaper through economic pressure after wards(or joining the winner close before the end). Since America will stop to even be a first world country. Its two main powers economy and military utterly depleted.

I missed your post, sorry. civil disobedience is the wrong word to use here. It may start as civil unrest, but very easily could blow up into a civil war. This has very little to do with the elections at this point. It has been building for a long time. I may not even see it in my lifetime, but I may. This goes beyond the haves and have nots.Our government has been becoming more and more centralized and powerful for decades. What we see now is a quickening of this process. I am serious when I say Obama is a socialist, but a lot of people just call him a communist. We are seeing our government joining the UN in a bid for a one world government and this is disconcerting to those who look at the signs and realize what is happening. I think you misunderstand the 2nd Amendments purpose. It is not illegal to rebel against our government and some of the fore fathers felt it would be necesary every so often. The 2nd is to allow us to take back our country from tyranny, foriegn or domestic. We are headed in that direction very quickly.

We already have dropped our position as in the first world countries. From what I hear, if we go off the fiscal cliff, which looks probably at this moment, we will drop our standing in the world more. We are spending way more than our country is produceing right now. If I spent my money like this, I would have been bankrupt and on the streets a couple of years ago.

Karma, if you will look at the SCOTUS rulings in the last several years it is obvious they are not following the Constitution like they are supposed to. What you are saying is let the Fox guard the hen house.

You know, I see you post how horrible conservatives are over and over. When I keep seeing this, it makes me think you are not the brightest bulb in the box and really don’t seem to use any logic in your arguments. All you do is make the same rants at me over and over. Thus, I wonder if you are playing with a full deck of cards.

Now you Are shooing a bit of ignorance. There are a whole lot more gun organizations than just the NRA. Not to mention most of these have state associations in each state. There are also many smaller state organizations not affiliated with the other groups such as PPFC of Colorado and the Pink Pistols of California, to name just a couple. So you keep up your arguments, even though you are a little weak in that area.

Check them out and then let us know if you want to continue down this road old fella.

From what I see, your are an expert in socialism. You are good at giving away taxpayers money for your own ideas of helping others, killing babies, pushing odd sex practices, and letting illegals cross open boarders. I suppose you will continue to push these until we go bankrupt in this country.

Thank you for the clarification Vika, I seem to have had a problem getting my idea to post that night.

I agree, we have slipped to a second rate entity. I am not too sure we will get out of the mess this time. The economists are expecting another recession, even deeper this time. I’m a bit worried I won’t be able to maintain the properties my wife and I have been building up for retirement income. They keep predicting some pretty horrid situations coming up this next year.

Umm wasn’t the US a charter (founding) member of the UN or am I missing something here?

In fact, from the wiki summary & official history seems to suggest that the US is more than a little responsible for, amongst other things, the name, structure, roll and member list (at least at inception)…

and still it seems – "More than 60 years ago, in the aftermath of the destruction and devastation of World War II, the United States provided the leadership and vision that led to the founding of the United Nations. Our leaders understood then that a global institution that brings all of the world’s countries together would enhance – not diminish – our influence and bring more security to our country and the world.

Today, with our security at home affected by instability, violence, disease, or failed states in far corners of the world, President Obama has affirmed America’s commitment to the United Nations as an indispensable, if imperfect, institution for advancing our security and well-being in the 21st century. He has made it clear that we must pursue a national security strategy that builds strong international partnerships to tackle global challenges through the integration of all aspects of American power – military and diplomatic; economic and legal; cultural and moral. The goal of our diplomacy at the United Nations is to make it a more perfect forum to address the most pressing global challenges: to promote peace and development, to advance democracy, and to strengthen respect for human rights."

Aha…so now YOU are an expert on Constitutional Law…eh “professor”?
OR, is it more likely that YOU are a devotee of the news sources that pander to the absurdly, pathetically needy-of-validation-of-their-hate-all-things-not-like-them egocentrists? These are the “conservatives” I’m talking about. That is why I put the word in quotation marks…to show I mean the word should be understood to have a specific meaning. I could put an asterisk * by it w/ the explanation at the bottom of the “page”.

BUT, I’ve given this explanation over & over & over to ya. Yet, YOU (as ya sooooo luv to do) manage to ignore as much on this forum (and very likely in RL) as is necessary in order to preserve YOUR bigoted biases…..as YOU proudly demonstrate below.

You know, I see you post how horrible conservatives are over and over.

YOU know, I also see how YOU post things (over&over&over) that show just how horrible """"""conservatives""""" are. We “lefties” are constantly pointing this out. THEN, ya post just how horrible we “lefties” are….AND, that is about all ya do in response to our assessment of YOUR points.

In RL, moderate Republicans are beginning to grow a spine and PUBLICLY denounce this """"""rabid conservative"""""" part of the GOP. Maybe now, when a top dog of the GOP rightfully assesses the likes of Rush Limbaugh, he won’t be forced to apologize.

When will YOU begin to realize that—just like there are many kinds of socialism—there are many kinds of conservatism? This “one-trick-pony” ideology (which limits acceptance of ONLY things YOU agree with) of YOURS has been addressed over & over & over by many ppl here on the forum. Yet, you blithely continue down that road.

When I keep seeing this, it makes me think you are not the brightest bulb in the box….

And ya wonder why so many of your posts are deleted…..LOL
Seriously (as in SERIOUS DISCUSSION…rather than juvenile, grade school name-calling crap), do ya thing such puerile INSULTS give any merit to YOUR points?

…and really don’t seem to use any logic in your arguments.

And YOU do….LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
jake-o, I would be immensely astounded if ya were to see much “logic” at all in my posts.

All you do is make the same rants at me over and over.

I’m absolutely convinced that YOU do see what I am saying as being in this manner.
BUT, your attempt to diminish any merit MY post has by calling it a childish name is just that…CHILDISH. My post certainly is NOT in the manner of a “rant”….at least no more than is most anyone eles’s. This is just YOUR pathetic way of making an ad hominemish slur at my posts.
This surprises me….NOT.

Thus, I wonder if you are playing with a full deck of cards.

OH, goodie….a twofer. Two INSULTS in one post. Next time, go for a “hat trick”.
AND, contrary to what MyTie “thinks”….I’m NOT THE ONE who flags these idiotic insults. The very fact that YOU & HE (any others?) are soooooo PRESUMTIVE on this and soooo aver it to be true only serves to make us wonder if ya aren’t doing the same thing w/ a lot (all?) of the other assessments ya present here. How hard can this be for ya to SEE?

Obviously someone else sees how much YOUR insults & aspersions are in violation of KONG guidelines for using this forum. I prefer to leave such posts up so that others have the opportunity to see just how pathetic your “dealing-from-the-(scum)bottom-of-the-deck” actually is when ya’re trying to give “punch” to yer POV.

Now you Are shooing a bit of ignorance. There are a whole lot more gun organizations than just the NRA. Not to mention most of these have state associations in each state. There are also many smaller state organizations not affiliated with the other groups such as PPFC of Colorado and the Pink Pistols of California, to name just a couple. So you keep up your arguments, even though you are a little weak in that area.

Is there an echo in here?
I’ve already addressed this…even “dressed it up” w/ some fine links.
Again, we see YOU doing YOUR “specialty” of ignoring that which gives serious challenge to your position on an issue.
From what I see, your are an expert in socialism.

Then YOU have a very pathetic evaluation of what an “expert” is.
I most certainly am NOT much of an “expert” at most EVERYTHING.
To think otherwise is merely the folly of a fool.

Perhaps ya actually meant to say (and missed a great opportunity for that “hat trick”) that ya see me as being an expert at evilness because YOU so despise (are so FEARFUL of?) and so ignorantly assess what socialism is & how I am one,,,,even after being told—BY ME—that YOUR definition of it is ONLY ONE of many. This behavior by YOU so denies//aborts the very concept of what socialism is in general and what tenets of it I believe in.

Members of this forum have repeatedly pointed out how very much America is very “socialistic-like”.
YET, ya remain steadfast in your stilted views on this. AND THEN, ya tout that MY arguments lack logic…LOLOLOLOLOL

You are good at giving away taxpayers money for your own ideas of helping others, killing babies, pushing odd sex practices, and letting illegals cross open boarders.

And there it is, folks.
He sums up his ideology….such as it is….UGH.

He fails to recognize that he is completely wrong in his assessment of my positions on these issues,,,,even when I have repeatedly made clarifications. But, should we be surprised he, ONCE AGAIN, does this? I esp. luv how he says I’m good at “killing babies”. While his syntax is pathetic, I’m gonna go w/: he wants to say that I SUPPORT killing babies,,,rather than I am actually doing it myself….lol
I greatly luv riding merry-go-rounds and talking w/ jake-o. One is fun & the other is super fun…in the same manner of actually getting NOWHERE…..lmao.

I suppose you will continue to push these until we go bankrupt in this country.

AND, I suppose YOU will continue to push YOUR (et al) agenda until this country becomes MORALLY bankrupt.

YOU are sooooo adept and demonizing “what is” about our govt. & our society.
I challenge YOU to tell us just what the fix is and the proper way America should be.
BUT, like most of the RADICAL, RABID """"conservatives"""""….I’m betting that ya have none,,,other than to say what everyone else is doing is wrong….yet, I haven’t a clue about what is actually “right”.

I really liked donseptico’s response to yer assessment of America’s participation in the UN. Ya really ought to put aside,,for a moment,,YOUR prejudices & paranoia on how frightful our govt is and give what he said some very serious consideration.

We are now a GLOBAL COMMUNITY and attempting to have some method of “sorting it all out” certainly is something that we should be working towards.

One world government being the beginning of the end? Yep, it indicates that in the Bible, so when you talk this way you sound either paranoid or apocalyptic. See Revelations or ask your wife for more info.

Wow! I’ll go with apocalyptic as I am not paranoid of it happening. I’m pretty sure it is in the works and has been for awhile. It just seems it is speeding up. There have been several mentions of a OWG by presidents in the past. George W. Bush was one of them if you want to look him up. I’m still on dialup as they sent me a bad router.

We have discussed homemade guns on this thread and now that I have a good internet, I have found I can actually watch a video without waiting an hour for it to load. I like it. That aside, I found a link to a video that shows homemade firearms from around the world. Most are crude, but some of them are pretty ingenious. I don’t know that I would want to pull the trigger on one, but hey, some do.

Although some of you like to think you have a grasp on everything going on in the political world concerning firearms, here is a link showing you what is about to happen because of your Messiah and his disregard for our Constitution.

Could you post a link that isn’t a video, please? I’d find more substance in something with actual references, and a thought out approach.

I realise I’m probably a rarity in this, but random people prattling at a camera does not for me, a convincing argument make. It’s why if I’ve ever posted a youtube link, it has been in the context of a larger argument, with the majority of the argument backed up by non-video links.

It could be. I mean, it’s much less likely, but still technically possible.

Plus Wikipedia is the low-end of acceptable textual links really. Sometimes a video can be great as a supporting argument, not as the main thrust.

(Jhco)
Of course it shows Obama as a lying jerk, but hey, evidently the journalists represented in the news station video are the liars as Obama is of god status and would never stoop to lying.

If you say so. Personally I don’t see him as a god, more a conniving politician who will leverage power any way he can get it – but he has policies I like, so I voted for him. You are free to continue believing he is a god though.

(Jhco)
My god Vika, you can you have your head so far up your butt you can’t admit Obama’s failings on anything?

The usual hyperbole rears its ugly head. Try a more sensible argument next time, please.

(Jhco)
And why are you posting in a gun thread, you hate guns?

Wait, when did she say that?

I never did.

What I have said, a few times is that I cannot use a gun. When I try, it brings the flashbacks back. The psychiatrists were never able to excise that particular sensory association. So I avoid guns for my personal use. This is why I use alternate means of self-defense. The taser feels very different to a handgun, and doesn’t trigger the jumbled mess of memories.

Somehow Jhco twists that into a hatred of guns.

I always wondered who could be stupid enough to not get that they are being conned by FOX news and the like. Now i know. Did you really not notice in your first link, that the Journalist of Fox news repeatedly asked “how the international treaty would actually effect the private gun owner in the US” and neither of the stooges(guests) gave a actual answer but danced around it. Instead they made bullshit claims about the Constitution and the UN.
1. The Constitution actually does give the Government the right to make the treaty. Its called the Commerce clause. For those self declared defenders of the constitution that don´t know what that clause says(which i would bet covers more than 99% of them) here the Wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commerce_Clause

2. The Claims about the UN are also false. The US would not be giving up any of its sovereignty to the UN. At most the UN would gain the power: to sue US companies that break US law in front of US courts. The US can change these laws and ignore the treaty anytime it likes. Sure this goes for other countries, so total ignorant idiots it would seem as if the treaty is inefficient. But fact is unlike the USA many smaller countries can´t say no to the UN as easily.
Iran was mentioned as someone who is ignoring a UN treaty, but fact is that same Iran has been suffering severely from trade embargoes. Sure they are still pushing along despite the embargo, but it is hurting them a lot.

Johnny, Fox is no worse than the other three, just of a different leaning than what the liberals on this forum is willing to accept. They don’t like opposing views.

The commerce clause has nothing to do with treaties. It concerns only interstate commerce. Although it includes foreign commerce, it doesn’t include being able to usurp our constitution, which is exactly what this so called treaty would do. However, all treaties must be approved by the congress, which Obama doesn’t seem to accept.

The claims about the UN are not false. The UN, when Obama is done, will make decisions on our national policies, usurping our congress and our constitution. Eventually, world leaders pushing for a one world government will accept the UN as the central government. The specific sovereignty we would be giving up is our bill of rights as small arms would be outlawed and our second amendment is in the way.
