That's 100% WRONG.

Look at Feinstein's proposal.


Feinstein's proposal =/= restrictions Americans support.

Really, get off the company line and actually pay attention to the national conversation.

I can only assume your read about 15% of the topic. Impressive. We're all familiar with the usual suspects. I appreciate being made aware of Alexander. You should be, too.

Your the first person in this topic to bring up party affiliation as if banning violent video games is elusive to the Republican party.

A person needs to end up in the f***ing hospital in CommieFornia before they're legally allowed to defend themselves.


Do they even treat people that are in the country legally?

I thought their policy was that only illegal immigrants got treatment in hospitals, and the legal citizens that pay taxes to support that are told to **** off.

I was-- and if you read it, it had nothing to do about exclusivity. It wasn't a damning statement about his Party affiliation, if anything it was writing off the statement he made as something he has to do as part of his political survival. Video games can get trashed on the Hill in the public's eye, no one pays for it. Guns can't.

The sole purpose of a gun is to kill effectively at a distance instantly.


Nope, sorry, the multi-million dollar shooting competition business, involving all ages, including people who don't shoot a gun for any other purpose, not to mention Olympic events, disagrees with you.


Sorry. Replace "sole" with "primary". A gun's primary purpose is to kill in the most violent way possible. And it does without end

Eh... I dunno. Even a messy kill with a gun is relatively clean in the History of Violent Ways to Go.

Feinstein's bulls*** is just the Clinton Ban with more guns added to the list along with the caveat of a total ban on those guns and no grandfathering in.

She's not the only one proposing that kind of ban either, Trotter, Yee, Bloomberg, Biden, and more are all proposing the same things.
