    I thought his speach was maybe 10% as good as his acceptance speech in chicago.
    As you well know, things just don't work that way. If you've ever worked on anything to present in public where you knew what the flow was supposed to be, wouldn't you tend to hyper focus on it being presented as planned, I know I would.

    I also don't think that yesterday was his most rousing speech but to me it was full of the substance of what his wishes to accomplish.

    Yeah man the gun store was completely packed yesterday it was crazy. I stopped by the police for a permit to purchase and they said it would take a while since they were completely overwhelmed. Even my friend's mom just got her CCW just in case.

I was also under the immpression the NRA has massive behind the scenes power in America, particuarly politics.
    There are already parts of the country where you can't carry a gun unless your job demands it, like NY and CA. I'm applying for all the licenses I can right now because who knows how long until that happens here. I don't think I'd ever carry a handgun or buy a machinegun but I will apply for licenses anyway before I'm not allowed to.

    Alex Jones is a little crazy though. There's no militant element to it as far as I can tell. I voted for Ron Paul but I still think this is a little out there and it didn't sound like Paul agreed with him either.

    Alex always over does everything, the same way a fat guy puts ketchup on everything. There is a point to be argued that , when your fat, ketchup tastes good on everything but may not always be neccessary. Its s shame that when you lose a taste for ketchup you miss out on some really good fries.

    hahaha, Americans and their guns!
    But seriously, I heard its only the assualt rifles? would he really be able to anyway? hmmm, still, you guys GOTTA be better off with him than Bush. Man, bush was an embarassment. I can tell you from the perspective of someone outside the U.S he is viewed with alot of scorn and even contempt. Barack is pretty slick man. Comes off looking way more intelligent. All in all, must be a better International face for U.S.

    Assault rifles include any rifle that has a bayonet lug or a pistol grip or any number of things that don't make it dangerous. Tacked onto this is any handgun with a capacity over 10 rounds, which is most handguns that aren't revolvers or a ludicrously large caliber.

    Not YOU, you - 'how does one...?'

    Yes I listened to them (no actual video, though - am I right?) - I confess, I had a real strong reaction to it.

    "Assault rifle" = scary-looking gun.
    </subject>

    Of course an assault rifle is a select-fire weapon capable of fully-automatic and / or burst fire. Doesn't make a bit of difference WHAT the bloody thing looks like. "Ooh, it's got a PISTOL GRIP!!! Ooh, it's got a FLASH SUPPRESSOR!!! Oh, No - look at the size of that magazine!!!

    ZOMG ITZ GONNA KILL US ALLS!!!11

    *ahem*

    The "assault-weapon ban" was the WORST sort of law, using descriptions that have no actual meaning, focusing on meaningless minutiae - an excuse for self-righteous hyperventilation & nothing more. I wrote to my state Senator once - a guy I'd gone to high school with - and wore him out for using contradictory & meaningless phrases such as "semi-automatic assault rifle...." I got a rubber-stamp-signature response, thanking me for "sharing my concern about dangerous weapons in the hands of criminals," yadda yadda yadda, please write again.

    ****. We don't speak anymore.

    semi-automatic assault rifle
    Why do people focus on misnomers only in their cause? the general public is unaware of the true definition on damn near everything. Weapons are far from the exception. Knowing an assault rifle is only one that has selective fire isn't really something that should have an essay written about it.

    I don't think the assault weapon ban is effective by any means but I don't think pointing something like the above out is an effective means of arguing things since their stance will be the same it'll just adjust to include assault rifles as well as semi-auto rifles.

    Agree on all points, Jay - this was 25 years ago (plus or minus) - and the event that *taught* me how unproductive the approach is.

    Still cranks me when people just make up new meanings for the words they've decided to mangle...just wired that way, I guess.

    Well I am also upset my tax money is going to help abortions for those who cannot afford it. Not to mention this stimulus package which has no accountability. This is becoming a socialist nation, and where does that work? Why should those of us who work hard pay for programs, health, etc. for those who cannot afford it BECAUSE they are not working themselves? Tell me there are no women with 6 kids from 6 different daddys sucking off the government!!! If you give someone a crutch, they use it. If you don't, they go out and work.....wouldn't that stimulate the economy? People working to support themselves. I don't even want to pay taxes anymore the way things are going. Yes I like to help those in need, but not those who take advantage of the system.....which actually is the majority! How many people on welfare or unemployment doing something about it? Very few, and most are getting that check and slinging rock making a good living while you and I are bustin our asses for them to do so! I'm sick man.

I'm glad the Dems and libs have no double standards, especially when they complained about Bush spending $45mil 4 years ago. Are people just blind, ignorant, in denial, or just plain stupid? Is America full of Americans anymore? I'm sick for my country today.....Obama, prove me wrong please!
