    Where is the ACLU when you need them?

    I know, their founder was a commie, but they should be all over this.

    It is really simple. Alexis de Tocqueville, the French historian and political thinker had it figured out in his writings, Democracy in America, 1830 and 1840.

    "The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that they can bribe the public with the public's money."

    With the help of the Democrat Party and obama that day has arrived. Sadly the game is over.

    well, the president has had four years in which to "take our guns away", and nothing of the sort has even been hinted at by rational people.

    what in god's name has happened to now convince you madmen to think that it will happen now?

    both houses of congress are relatively the same composition now as they were four years ago. the supreme court has, on more than one occasion, defended the individual's right to possess and use firearms.

    don't you understand that this bullshit about losing guns is a figment of your own bizarre imaginations?

    please, find something else to rave about, and do it somewhere other than at an internet site intended for the discussion of trapshooting and trap guns.

    Did anybody read Ron Paul's comments on sucession yesterday? He noted that to threaten it is a basic right of free people and that without that right, people are not really free. Many on here have viewed it as unpatriotic, including me, however that is how King George probably viewed Tom Jefferson and the boys. We must remember that it is the way we got our freedom the last time.

    Wayno my post has nothing to do with guns. It has everything to do with explaining what has happened and will happen to our democracy. Guns are a side issue, getting around the recent Supreme Court decision finding the the ownership of guns is an individual right is not going to be easy. If obama and the lawmakers continue on the course they are on we will have bigger issues than guns to worry about.

    We're at a point where we have far far more takers than givers.

    Getting around the Supreme Court decision will only take replacing a few older justices with the likes of Kagan and Sotomayor. Obama now has four more years of opportunity. How about Justices Holder or Clinton-Rodham? Are you willing to bet that can't happen? As far as previous decisions not being reversed, think about the change between Dredd Scott as opposed to Brown v The Board of Education.

    pocatello, if you went to law school, you must have successfully avoided attending any constitutional law courses whatsoever.

    first, yes i am willing to bet that there will be no justices holder or clinton .

    second, dred scott was eliminated by the elimination of slavery, by constituional amendment, shortly after the end of the civil war.

    third, brown v. board was decided nearly one hundred years after that, and overruled plessy v. ferguson, the "separate but equal" doctrine that had been the law for about 60 years.

    perhaps you can start worrying around 2070--for myself, i don't think i have that long to ponder the issue.

    Wayne if you don't think fast and furious was a first attempt to start taking are guns then there is nothing else I can say. Jim don't just blame the democrats the republican party has gone along with this and added to it for years.

    True, the republicans have gone along with some of this over the years. Maybe they are getting the message. I believe no republicans voted for obamacare which is encouraging. However I'm getting a little nervous about John Boehner, he's waffling too much for me. Someone had a great idea for the republicans. As new votes come up don't vote against anything just vote "present". After all that is what obama did during his brief term in the senate. The democrat programs if passed will create utter chaos, probably bankrupt the country and then maybe we can get a fresh start. A little crazy but interesting.

    Enough of this let's talk about 7 1/2s versus 8s or something else, crossfiring maybe?

    well, "yar", that is so pathetic a response as to be far beyond any rational thinking person's need to reply. yet, this is so typical of what passes for dialogue around this place, as to be acceptible to many wierdos.

    thus, goodbye to all of you wingnuts, and out.
