    I am on Mr. Obama's mailing list for some reason, I just got this:

    [​IMG]

    They have given up on the AWB and mag bans... they are choosing universal background checks as their hill to die on.

    Organizing for Action is a PAC bought and paid for by Obama and company, it is the full force of his campaign apparatus but brought to bear outside of election season, this is what won him two terms and it is as dangerous as hell.

    -We need an NRA counter campaign that refutes the claims in the above email.
    -We need an unbiased poll through the Cato Institute or Reason Media.

    I did as well.

    I also made a blistering reference to the lie it represents.

    One step at a time. Eventually all will be confiscated. Typical government crap.

    They don't care wat you own because they will know about it and confiscate it! This is not paranoia but a thinly veiled reality.

    Great statistics. I'm guessing they were pulled from a deep, dark place...

    Dont trust it one bit, the fine print will be the killer.

    Like the proposed legislation for a Conceal carry permit in VT that requires a course in first aid, safe gun handling, "resurvival" and a bow hunters safety course.. wait what, Bow hunters safety?!

    It attributes them to "Republican Pollster Frank Luntz"

    see, he's one of us! Let's all go turn in our guns!!

    As an aside... that quote in your sig 'is not something Jefferson wrote, but rather comes from a passage he included in his "Legal Commonplace Book." The passage is from Cesare Beccaria's Essay on Crimes and Punishments.'

    He just annotated it but some people though it was his writing.

    It is worth noting that Republican pollster Frank Luntz is scum:

    I am starting to think that maybe the big push at the federal level will be for universal background checks while letting the states fight it out over what gets registered and what sort of magazines they are allowed to accept.

    Be sure to engage at the state level!

    Here's my statistic.

    100% of Americans support putting criminals and gangs behind bars.

    Get rid of the criminal and get rid gun violence.

    I would say at least 0.5% of Americans are members of criminal gangs...

    They would be opposed. :)

    Yeah, the Universal Background checks are how they are going to come at this thing ... for now. They may even get it.

    It's all a dog and pony show - smoke and mirrors. They are up to something else, just can't seem to put a finger on it at the moment.

    The poll has a margin of error of + or - .05% so still valid :D

    Not 100% of Americans. You're forgetting about most of Illinois government and the City of Chicago.

    What did Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels say about lies? Seems to me our Dear Leader learned from him.

    Well, if they want them so bad, maybe we can get an actual compromise going. How about opening up that machine gun registry?

    Dont forget about CA. They're talking about bans that are worse than NY. :what:


    But I must make a correction. While they might be citizens, they are NOT Americans.


    All of us need to get others to realize that attacking the 2A is attacking the Constitution.


    Just like killing Americans with Drones with no proof of being a terrorist.

    The Patriot Act undermining wire tapping, search and seizure laws.

    The list goes on.


    Q: If all of these things are good... why have taxes consistantly gone up and the quality of life gone down for most Americans?

    A: Because all it has done is give the Government more power and weakened the Constitution which was created for the good of the people.

    Does anyone really think they would open up the registry and allow more access to the very type of firearm they claim they are trying to ban? :confused:
