    MSNBC was on, i wasnt watching it. but some windbag was nameing off the "worst people in the world" . #3 was a 10 month old boy whos grand father had given a shotgun to, and his father got him an ( illinois?) FOID
    number 2 was a blind man who was denied a LTC in his home state because he was blind, 2 neighboring states gave him one


    how does being a young gun owner or a blind gun owner make them "the worst people in the world"

    MSNBC makes me sick right now

    According to a TV news story I saw today, the grandfather of that 10-month-old baby wanted to pass on a family heirloom for him to have when he came of age. But state law made the gift illegal unless the recipient had an FOID.

    The baby's father therefore applied for the FOID in the baby's name. He provided all information accurately and the baby was granted the FOID.

    When that background is omitted--as it is in most versions of this story--the incident seems bizarre. With that background the father's application is a reasonable way to meet the requirements of an unreasonable law. Instead of expressing disdain for a father who got his child a Firearms Owner Identification Card we should be asking about why any state requires such a card before a grandfather can pass on a family heirloom to his grandchild.

    One reason, of course, is that otherwise both the baby and his grandfather would be involved in an illegal transaction.

    Another reason is that the state is expressing some kind of legitimate concern for the possibility that the baby might run amok with the firearm if he were not properly identified.

    Although the father now seems sane, the state probably should be institutionalized, and the media gives further evidence that it abuses its First Amendment protection.

    Those were the people he had to name in order to avoid having to name himself and his producers. :D

    You've been watching Olberman, haven't you? Tsk, tsk.

    Olberman is a flaming uberliberal who gets seriously bent out of shape because the world doesn't fit his idea of utopia. Actually, he pretty much stays bent out of shape the entire time he's on the air, usually looking like he's got a 5-year case of constipation and a little jock itch going on. There's a line from the movie "Good Morning Vietnam" that fits Olberman perfectly -- something about a white man, a particular sexual act, and history. :D

    I actually enjoy watching him because his view of the world is so far left of mainstream America, it's actually quite fun watching him get all tensed up and looking like he's about to give birth. He's so self-righteous, he makes O'Reilly look like a girlyman.

    Olberman should have stuck to sports and his self-aggrandizing views on baseball.

    You know? When I first started reading this thread, I said: "lemme guess...Keith Olberman."

    I mean, I just assume this drivel comes from him, and it certainly is a valid assumption (infantile babble from MSNBC has his name scrawled all over it) but are we sure?

    Why don't the people from NBC stick to doing what they do best... publishing the manifestos of psychopaths and rigging trucks to blow up to increase their ratings...

    I take exception to that: I'm a liberal and I have nothing in common with that guy. He's not a liberal, he's just a muckraker.

    Watching MSNBC for facts is like learning about guns from the Brady site.

    Let's not forget that Tucker Carlson is on MSNBC, and is against any form of gun control. He also made a monkey out of Rep. McCarthy a few weeks ago, over the "barrel shroud" incident.

    There is also Contessa Brewar. She's a hottie who's on during the day. The last time she had an anti on, she was acting like someone who is pro-gun. She was contradicting the guy, and cutting him off, all the while being very polite to the NRA talking head who was on.

    I had always liked Olberman. It's only been the last couple of weeks that he has expressed any views on the gun issue at all. Before that, I wasn't sure if he was an anti or not. Well, he is. However, that doesn't make O' Reilly any less of a jackass.

    Isn't that the whole problem anyway?

    So much for live and let live ideologies.

    That's because this character has no concept of what evil really is, and what it really takes to make the "worst people in the world list." To them it just means anyone who doesn't agree with them.

    I read the article and I found a very important reference missing. There was no reference to the Americans with Disabilities Act, and how this blind man was being discriminated against! I mean denying a person basic rights because he's blind? I smell a lawsuit! If not, there needs to be one!

    Other then catching the occasional Bears/White Sox game or an occasional show on the History (I throughly enjoyed Sherman's March) or Discovery channels. I've found the "OFF" button the most used button on my remote.

    I can never take pronouncements like this seriously, especially when we have items such as the members of the Rwandan Hutu militia groups (500k to 800k dead in a genocide) and any number of monsters in Darfur to compare them to. MSNBC is so far away from even being able recognize EVIL that I actually find it painful sometimes.
