Boss Obama, libs, the press go nuts after Planned Parenthood shooting begins:

After Friday's mass shooting at a shopping center in Colorado Springs, President Obama issued his usual vague call for more gun control.

We have to do something, the president says. But what exactly? It is not surprising that Obama did not bother to address that question, because there is no good answer to it.

According to people who knew him, John Dear, the man arrested for killing three people and injuring nine in last week's attack, was an eccentric, off-putting loner with anger issues. But he apparently did not have the sort of criminal or psychiatric record that would have prevented him from legally buying a gun.

NBC News adds "there would have been nothing apparent in Dear's background—including a felony conviction or previous mental health issue—that would have disqualified him from buying firearms."

The usual suspects like Dan Slott and Ron Marz have their Twitter feeds chock full of snarky comments about guns and the right-wing, but like with Boss Obama you never actually see real solutions proposed.

Obama has mentioned that Australia is a model the US could look to; however, Australia confiscated firearms from private ownership. I've no doubt that that is ultimately what the president would like here, but he sure ain't gonna get that with an executive order. As I noted, the only real "short-term solution" is getting a liberal Supreme Court justice who will provide the needed balance tip to "reinterpret" the 2nd Amendment.

So what is it, "progressives?" Why not just come out and say it -- you want to ban private ownership of guns? If you want more restrictions, like what, for instance?

Take Marz's comment:

See the Reason (something which you're sorely lacking, Ronnie) article above. Where does the line get drawn? Who decides? And who's "not asking questions?"

Continue to challenge the 2nd Amendment clueless. Because the mainstream media sure won't.

Boy, I'm so old, I remember when liberals were insisting that we not politicize shootings... y'know, ones involving that Brinsley lunatic (who was acting on DeBlasio and Sharpton's anti-cop rhetoric) or the Paris attack (a direct result of Obama's boneheaded ISIS policy). My, how the times change.

Remember the rules always change to promote their narrative.

I also love how Slott seems to think the only gun was a musket when the 2nd amendment was written.
His false argument leaves out many facts as usual.
Yep just take the Belton flintlock developed during the revolutionary war that could fire 20 or so rounds in 5 seconds with one pull of the finger.

The girandoni rifle, where a 22 high capacity round magazine accurately could be fired within 30 seconds created during the revolutionary war which was later used by Thomas Jefferson to famously outfit the lewis and clark expedition.

- The Puckle gun early Gatling gun created 60 years before the revolutionary war.

- The Pepper box revolvers some could hold over 20 rounds and were developed hundreds of years before the founding fathers.

Slott, Marz, and many others do not understand the purpose of having the right to own a gun.

I wonder what the liberals would do if a republican suggested that banning and confiscating guns was a good idea and a door to door search and seizure should begin on a small scale, like say inner cities. begin with wilmington and chicago. how many liberals would vote for that?
