    The NRA needs to keep speaking the truth and putting the pressure on the politicians to leave our guns, ammo, and accessories alone.

    We've been coming up with tongue-in-cheek jokes about all the other anti positions. Do we have any on, "I'm a gun owner, but..." or "I support the 2A, but..."?

    That has always been their agenda. Meeting with the NRA was nothing more than a facade.

    i just love that...they claim they want to reach a "common ground".....but they are completely unwilling to yield on any of their views.

    essentially what he means is, " we want to force our stance on the issue, we well call it 'common'...."

    Hopefully they'll go all the way and make it illegal to carry/possess any firearm anywhere, with criminal intent. That'll reduce gun violence!

    While they're at it, make it illegal to use a gun for suicide, and make the punishment death by firing squad.

    Glad to see our Lawmakers working so hard on "Common Ground" issues such as trillion dollar fantasy coins to solve the deficit and gun control which has long been proven to NOT reduce crime and ignoring the little things like the deficit, rampant inflation, job losses on the increase, a stagnant economy, getting the troops out of stupid places, our own roads, infastructure, and school system failures...

    ALL they are concerned about is the limiting of our rights, this is what i truly believe. they got caught with Fast & Furious so the Sandy Hook deal fell right in their lap, just what bho & eric with-holder was waiting on, wonder why he decided to stay on? while i do think we need to make sure people are not preyed upon by madmen, limiting MY Rights will never change that, I am never going to do those things. I feel this regime is going to split this country. :(

    Holy hell. We are in a circle of only like minded people, peeps. Sandy Hook was a big deal in American history.

    I for one welcome conversation.

    Their latest is back ground checks for ammo; lets see box of 50 22's $1.55 plus bg check $25, that'll be $26.55 or $.53 per round of 22. Also the great 0 wants to use executive power to get his way and not wait for congress!:cuss::cuss::fire::banghead:

    How can we get Biden, Feinstein, and Obamy removed from office? These crazy fools are unfit to lead. We can't have morons like that attempting to run this country.

    A petition? A vote? A request? Cash payment?

    My favorite quote from the article linked above:

    It seems that if Obama, Biden, Feinstein, Pelosi, and Schumer repeat themselves enough, they can claim that they've found a surprising amount of agreement with their opinions.

    The only "common ground" these liberal elitists have is with one another.

    Am I the only one disturbed by the involvement of Walmart in these discussions? I can't engage my brain to figure out where Walmart has a horse in the race, or a voice for that matter. Sure, they sell guns. A few more than the guy up the road from me, but likely nowheres near some of the specialty big name vendors. Huh?

    On a slant, here's another EO comment tossed out there. Something struck me on a positive note that maybe they'll use an EO to tighten up lapses in punishment for gun related crimes. Nah... That almost makes sense. Scratch that. We could only hope!

    Walmart is the single largest gun retailer on earth. So yeah, what they think does matter. They will certainly cave, just like they have in the past.

    481, a lot of regular joes believe we need to regulate FTF sales as well. I wouldn't call them antis, but I don't think we should regulate guns unless we also regulate every potentially deadly weapon (cars, sports equipment, cooking utinsils, etc). It would be far simpler to just put people we think should not have guns into prison.

    No. Obama does not make the laws. Congress does. Thus... no gun bans.
    Walmart is private and can get out of gun sales if they want. Capitalism says another retailer will benifit. So Cabelas or Big 5 will make the profit rather than Walmart.

    Is it just me or does it look like Joe is threatening someone with his "finger" gun? Perhaps we should suspend him.

    Yes, but each of us need to contact our representatives. That is as important as the NRA's efforts.

    Biden has been a gun grabber from way back. This is his big moment. Neither he nor the President need to be re-elected, so they are going for it. I doubt Biden would ever win the Democratic nomination for President in 4 years.

    I don't buy any firearms from wal-mart anyway, on camera, three people watching you walking you out with a manager so you don't pull out the deer rifle and load it with ammo? makes me feel like spending my hard earned dollars somewhere else. No Thanks.

    Yes, Biden states that they have reached a consensus on banning assault rifles and hicap magazines along with background checks. That means no more private sales which means the govn't knows who buys guns and who doesn't from now on.

    Like as if we didn't know this was coming as soon as the great one won reelection. If folks own guns and voted for this administration, they own a big part of the blame. Just as the Dems are in meltdown looking at their paychecks this week, those same people that love their guns will now see the real side of this administration and he hasn't even been sworn in yet for his second term. This is all still on his first go round.

    It will be a very LONG 4 years.

    I also saw something about Biden's statement earlier in the day when he was talking about common ground (10 round limit, universal background checks, etc.) and was surprised that an assault weapon ban was not mentioned.
