1-23

1. Every state already has a background check system, we don't need a federal system since that's dangerously close to the Federal law preventing a national gun registration scheme.

2. More Socialist health care crap, more of what we don't need.

3. Incentives for states to violate individual personal privacy and possibly violate the laws governing collection of information on non-criminals.

4. Categorizing people, more of politicians deciding they know better how to run your life than you do.

5. They already HAVE that ability in existing laws.

6. Private sellers should legally be off limits, privately sold "gun show loophole guns" only account for less than 1% of all crime guns.

7. More taxpayer money wasted.

8. See #7. Locks can be picked or broken and very few safes will stop a determined thief.

9. The guns already get traced by local LEOs, no need for Federal involvement.

10. The FBI already compiles that information, the DoJ would be wasting time and money doing it all again.

11. The BATFE already has a director, he just needs to be "confirmed" which doesn't require a god damned executive order to accomplish....

12. LEOs already have that training, emergency workers have laws allowing them to carry on duty, Feds can stay out of schools too, let them work up their own plan on their own time and own money.

13. Vague Much?

14. The CDC needs to research actual DISEASES and figure out how to cure them, not waste time and money researching guns when other federal agencies have already done that job.

15. More of his "electronic theft prevention" ideas that could easily be disabled because guns are mechanical devices, not electronic.

16. More Socialist health care combined with an invasion of privacy, typical Obummer moronic crap.

17. Doctor Patient Confidentiality.

18. This I agree with, but where's the money coming from?

19. Those places already have their own plans, no need for Federal interference.

20-23. More Socialist govt. interference in the medical community.

Almost everything is already covered in existing laws, and the money is NOT THERE for any of it.


"2. More Socialist health care crap, more of what we don't need."

What do we need? Also, stop using the word socialist, you sensationalist fool. "SCARY WORD! SCARY WORD! MIGHT MAKE PEOPLE LISTEN TO ME!"

We all know that a assault rifle ban reinstatement (which is what really is needed) has no chance of making it through Congress.


It only made crime worse the first time around, so why should it magically work this time?

1. Enforce the laws we already have instead of enacting more than 40,000 new dumbass laws every single year.

2. If the shoe fits....

I'm really sick of all this crap lately. Video game violence blah blah blah and how CoD are "murder simulators".. What a bunch of morons. Don't let your kids play "violent video games". Instead, let them watch violent cartoons, violent movies, play with violent toys and let them pretend to shoot each other for real with water guns and Nerf guns.


Funny thing is, while I agree with you, it's the one thing that Conservatives & Liberals agree on.

Of course, America could just as well join the rest of the civilized parts of humanity, but I guess if it does that, it'll magically become LESS FREEDOM-y, or something? Because people can't shoot at things as easily, and because people with no money might not die because they have no money. Why do people think these are good things that make it better than other civilized countries :x I don't get it. Someone please explain that to me. Why is punishing the poor a good thing? Why is letting everyone have guns a good thing? When all other super power countries have clearly decided "No, this is not a good thing." What makes America so special that it has to skirt by these trends? Why are these good things? WHY AREN'T WE USING THE METRIC SYSTEM!? I don't freaking get it. Maybe that's the root of it all right there. We're just so backwards and stubborn.

The decade of cocaine, heroine, and PCP, crime rates and firearm homicide rates didn't start going down until 2000.

What's wrong with socialism? I mean... social security, in it's essence, is socialism. A lot of social programs, when you take it down to the base level, is socialism. So I don't see why you have to get all fear-mongery.

but that's besides the point, I meant what sort of health system do we need, if this socialist health care whathoosit isn't right?
