    So what is a common sense gun law?

    Brady people make me want to :barf:

    The guy has quite the nerve doesn't he? Thinking that the Dem's getting in was an explicit approval of gun laws? :banghead: This was all about the economy.

    Frickin' ridiculous. Show me a single crime the Brady Campaign has prevented and I will be astonished. I can not understand why they blatantly ignore the statistics that have shown increasing the regulation of guns has no effect on crime what-so-ever. This is a classic example of the talkers vs. the do-ers. Talking about a problem and making empty statements is very easy, as is ignoring statistics and proven facts. Actually solving a problem takes hard work and gumption, not feel good laws and ideas. If they plan on curbing gun crime, the solution is to enforce the laws we have and stop attacking lawful gun owners.

    He seems to have forgotten about the recent USSC ruling that gun ownership is an individual right.

    Why are people so hell bent on throwing away their rights?

    I think he clearly states at the end that gun confiscation was not an option due to the recent SC ruling. That is him admitting defeat for his group in a big way IMO. The entire tone of the video was over shadowed by the Heller ruling and this rather defeatist statement from one of the most aggressive anti gun groups in American makes me feel much better.

    Are they still going to try and destroy the heart of the 2A? Of course they are but he clearly his tone and message were much lower keyed than a few months ago.

    "Shall not be infringed"=/= "Reasonable Restrictions"
    I like the comment about the "gun lobby's rhetoric and scare tactics". Talk about calling the kettle black. Go write another article about "50 CALIBER TERROR!!!OMGNOESSSS!!!"

    That witch makes me sick. She always wants to find fault in everything.
    Just remember the words from our greatest president. "From my cold dead hands."

    This my prediction. I belive the new regime will wait untill there is another school shooting and just use it as a building block for their "common sense gun laws). I also think that the new awb would include firearms you would never have dreamed of. I think it will be like other countries where all military calibers are banned. :cuss:

    This election was so much more than a single issue like the economy.
    It was about a new direction. Some may not get it yet!
    One party is in total disarray. It'll be nice to put intellect and literacy back in the WH.
    Gun issues are not a priority for the immediate future. It's simply the pendulum coming back after a violent swing right.

    But that won't happen in the foreseeable future.

    Uh, where have you been? Two years ago, the Dems took control of Congress. And look what they did to the economy in that time. When and where was this "violent swing right"? That was in the 80s under Reagan.

    So we can expect competency and literacy from Bill Clinton?
    Don't you remember the first time he got elected?
    He just came back with a tan.

    You can call it a new, improved, change, whatever. I served in the US Marine Corps under the first Clinton Administration. I remember how bad things were.

    You just keep your doors locked and talk to strangers from behind something.
    Don't let anyone in who wasn't invited. Warrant or no warrant.
    Big brother was watching. Right now he's in the planning phase. I suggest you do the same.

    "It's simply the pendulum coming back after a violent swing right."

    Guess I missed that swing during the last eight years' unprecedented expansion of federal government power.

    I tend to agree. It sounded as if he was doing alot of backpedaling.

    The guy is a bozo. Other than a criminal I don't think there is a rational person in the US that doesn't want to see an end to gun violence. As far as common sense laws are concerned, the Brady Campaign and and the gun control lobby have introduced some of the lamest laws around meant to grab the guns and not be concerned with violence.....

    Why not work on the root causes of gun violence and impose severe punative actions for those that commit the crimes?? Harder to do yet much more productive.

    The words 'right' and 'subject to reasonable restriction' in the same sentance...
    Send the guy a dictionary so he can look up 'oxymoron'. He can look up twat while he's there, too.

    The sad fact of the matter is that these idiots acutally think they had something to do with this election, that people were voting based on "gun politics", which isn't true at all. I am sure that it was the last thing on the mind of the Supports of Obama at the time. It may be something that they "generally" agree with, but wasn't why they voted that day.
