Conservative Ideas: Guns for the Insane, Violence Against Gays & Immigrants, and Special "Rich-Man Rules"[LM]

July 27, 2012

Tonight from 7 to 10 pm ET
The National Rifle Association supports high-capacity magazines and guaranteeing the insane access to guns. Guess the moviekiller wasn’t deadly enough!
ALSO my guest Terry O’Neill, the President of the National Organization of Women, talks about why Republicans are opposed to protecting victims of domestic violence who are gay or illegal immigrants. Guess violence is OK for those reprobates.
AND “Rich-Man Rules”: Why Conservatives believe that the superrich shouldn’t have to follow the same rules the rest of us live by. Guess the 99% doesn’t matter.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    There are absolutely different “rules for the rich”, especially corporations. I used to listen to Rush Limbaugh on his radio show talk about how all drug addicts should be put in prison… yet when he himself was convicted, he spent only a few weeks in rehab.

    If you want opportunity and justice in the US just be born wealthy. It’s that easy

    Gun laws are sometimes too strict and sometimes too lax. Criminals seem to acquire guns despite the laws. I am far more concerned with the rampant prescribing of experimental psychiatric medication that is known to increase homicidal and suicidal thoughts and tendencies….which also is almost completely unreported in the media. Most of these “shooters” are on or have been on these drugs. Shouldn’t Big pharma pay some restitution to families and victims if this is the case? I have owned all kinds of guns for over 20 years and have never shot anyone. When the large capacity mags were illegal, it didn’t matter much and if there is an assault rifle ban, people can just modify MORE powerful hunting rifles like a 30-06. Plus if a criminal wants to mass murder people, they can easily fabricate their own high capacity magazines, it’s easy. Criminals will find ways around laws. I do have a conceal carry license and carry on occasion, for situations that might not include tear gas, (that is not a common occurrence for a mass shooting). But my opinions are such because I have been trained with guns for over 20 years, live in a rural area and am very familiar with safety and practical applications. The big 2nd amendment issue is that we have a right to a “well regulated militia” in the states, and we do not have that. According to the Bill of Rights we are supposed to have EVERY tool of the soldier within our militias but we are limited to guns. 2nd amendment is set to protect against a tyrannical government primarily and to protect ourselves secondarily. That is the big political distraction.
