    Is that a definite "maybe," General Jell-o, or just a regular "maybe"?

    So, let's see: Dean sucks, Kerry really sucks, and Clark isn't quite sure how badly he wants to suck yet, but is hiring a team of experts to look into it.

    Does that pretty much sum up these Dem hopefuls? :uhoh:

    I was born and raised in AR, all guns always loaded. NOT Warned,but educated about gun safety. I had a loaded gun next to me since since birth, no gun locks, no gun safes...I turned out allright.
    Of course I recall a former Pres from my state whom also was a Rhode scholar...
    Seems as if we need a "suck-o-meter" any given day the readings change.

    It's all a game of semantics for them..How to be antigun, without sounding like you are. Personally I would be more inclined to look favorably on someone who could look me in the eye and tell me he didn't believe I had a right to own a firearm then I can anyone from any party who wants to talk around the issue.

    I am the same way about freedom as the president claims to be on the WOT. You're either with me or against me. You believe in the 2d Amendment or you don't. It's that simple.

    And how do they plan to do this without violating (not that it matters) the 4th amendment?

    What does one expect when you have former Clintonista devils whispering in Clark's ear? Expect more stupid statements from him in the future.

    One almost feels bad (almost that is!) for this guy. He has to SOUND just anti-gun enough to not put off the die-hard Marxist vote, BUT he also needs to appeal to pro-gun guys with a Marlin behind the front seat. Sucks to be a Democrat running for president.

    I'd suspend judgement. He is in effect saying "I'll get back to you once I know more about it". What's wrong with that? It's probably not a big issue for him one way or another. When you're ignorant about a particular issue - and we're all ignorant about something or another - the right thing to do is to do a little research and form conclusions in accordance with your principles rather than take an immediate, ill-informed stand.

    The article said "as a general principle". I'm in favor of securing your firearms as a general principle, but I don't favor requiring everyone to have a $2000 gun safe.

    Issues of legality, authority or constitutionality do not even cross their minds except when their laywer speaks up and says "Uhh..I don't think we can do that." and then is promptly ignored.

    Trigger locks are the worst gun-safety device I can imagine. Nothing like a 'safety' lock that lets you load the gun, chamber a round, disengage the safety and then has something stuck in the trigger guard. :rolleyes:

    I'll agree that one shouldn't be giving off the cuff policy statements, but isn't "I'll have to think on that" Clark's answer to everything? Its almost like he wants to check with the spin doctors before he issues any proclamations. ("Mary, help!).

    Wasn't he supposed to be formulating his stances in the months and months he was said to be pondering running?

    Shouldn't matter to me, actually, as I won't be voting for him.

    And I favor democrat safety muzzles. I'll put a lock on my gun if they put a lock on their mouths.

    Clark never "exposed" his children to guns? So, he raised his son to be a victim and a slave? Just the kind of President the Democrats, a party of victims and slaves, want.:uhoh:

    I don't think we have to worry about being "exposed" to the Clinton stalking horse much longer. McGovern will get the nod.

    Dan, so McGovern's a straight guy who wants to be gay? Talking about pandering to his base!:D

    And later in the same interview he stated he didn't know the definition of metrosexual. Another Clinton in the making.

    How exactly could a person raise their children on military bases and not expose them to guns?

    How could a man be a father, own guns, and not expose his children to them? Could it be he doesn't spend enough time with them to trust them?

    I think it is cool that the dems are expending resources on Gen Clark.

    He is floundering like a beached carp.

    His own worst enemy.
