    It never fails. We try to start a conversation about common sense gun control, and the gun lobby and their surrogates start the drumbeat, "They're coming for ur gunz!!"

    The thing is, the NRA, for one, only represents about two percent of the total gun-owning population. They have about two million members, out of over 150 Americans who own guns. Their main constituency is where the bulk of their funding comes from, and that is the gun manufacturers.

    The problem is with the American culture, which is becoming more violent every day. Not coincidentally, the value that we place on human lives, let alone their liberty and pursuit of happiness, is dropping every day.

    Somethings gotta give. It's not going to be pretty and I'm afraid it will be soon.

    Guns save lives, they do not obliterate them.

    I don't belong either, if that's any consolation. I grew up around guns - we lived on a ranch in Eastern Oregon and hunted. Later I worked for the US Biathlon Association, which is sport shooting. But now I have no guns in the house because I refuse to be in a position where I might kill someone. and somehow, I still feel safe.

    Time to deport me, I guess.

    +1, I agree and living here in the Bay Area I am concerned more and more of people just believing to the rhetoric and irresponsible politicians, that say that arming yourself is the key in stopping the assailant, with a semi automatic weapon because if you had a weapon yourself you could have avoided these mass murders..really?icon_rolleyes.gif Any disagreement towards this you are seen like anti- American and how dare you not arm yourself. What about road rage or anger toward these individuals that all of sudden have a weapon with them? We have seen how these cases in California, Arizona, etc. of individuals hunting down or killing by standers because it was their 'right' to own a gun and kill the person that had anger them on the road...another by product of our gun culture.

    In Obamas speech he elevates the gun control debate which is irrelevant in this situation with the latest terror attacks and not seeming "anti Muslim".

    His policies have failed and thats why Americans are looking for safety in any way possible.

    The ATF report confirms what we already know, that Barack Obama deserves the 'Gun Salesman of the Decade' award.

    We have no reason to feel particularly unsafe. we remain less so with our fellow Americans than we are foreign violent extremists, but the threats haven't changed all that much in the last 14 years or so.

    When you define success as the obliteration of an ideology, then no president can do anything but fail.
