The US has hundreds of mass shootings each year?  Please go ahead and choose one year and run down the "hundreds" of mass shootings that occurred.

And to say that Australia has no mass shootings is wrong, sorry to burst your bubble.

Besides, if there're no guns available, murderers and terrorists just find another way to kill people.  The 84 killed in France by the truck driver terrorist is just one example. 

The only thing a gun ban does is take guns out of the common law-abiding citizens' hands.  Makes people easy pickings for murderers and terrorists.

    They still have violent crimes despite the gun buy back program, murder is murder, you don't need a gun.

    Move there, If you don't like it here then leave.

    Since your Mister History, tell all the good folks why Japan never invaded us after they bombed Pearl Harbor.

    The Emperor wanted a ground invasion until he was told everyone  here has a gun.

    You are so willing to give up your rights...You are willing to become a subject instead of a citizen.

    You want other peoples rights to be taken away, you can't see they are also yours.

    You are not a survivor.

    sully16  I Agree!

    I wonder how people would take it if Trump started talking about how the 1st amendment's freedom of speech needed some

    upgrades.  So many are willing to give up our 2nd amendment rights that I am sure they would just roll over over if suddenly

    freedom of speech became center topic.  IMHO anyone who does not like our Constitution and the bill of rights should move to

    some place that does not have them.   We have all heard the old saying "The pen is mightier then the sword." but without a

    sword the pen is worthless.

      Maybe the British would have just said OK to the declaration of independence

      Maybe Abe would of said "OK I tried." to slavery.

      Maybe a simple letter to Hitler would have avoided WWII.

      Maybe communism, where only the rulers have guns would be nice

      Maybe making crime legal would eliminate the need for guns

      Maybe letting the village take our kids away so they could be programmed like cheap computers is not a bad idea

        Let's see who has dementia, Stack.

        First you tell us Ronda Rousey could beat either one of them, then today you yourself point out Bruce Lee died 14 years before she was born. And now, suddenly, you originally meant 'in their prime." As for your only response in the Norris - Bruce Lee thread yeah, you said she could beat them both, but in another thread you said she's never be defeated. 

        Soon after she lost. 

        As for your penchant for quoting other people, highlighting in blue (now you'll switch colors maybe)m and pathological nit-picking, the more you post your erroneous 'facts' and opinions the more of an imbecile you're proving yourself to be.

        Get a life and stop bothering the sane people.

        "First you tell us Ronda Rousey could beat either one of them"

        You're embarrassing yourself again!

        On the first post in the "Chuck Norris or Bruce Lee" thread, Jeet asked "Who is more relevant in the "game" these days?" and on November 27, 2014 Rhonda Rousey was obviously much more relevant in the MMA game. Is the term "THESE DAYS" (in the present) causing all your confusion?

        "then today you yourself point out Bruce Lee died 14 years before she was born. And now, suddenly, you originally meant 'in their prime."

        It's getting worse, dementia and a severe a lack of reading comprehension. In the context of relevancy, THESE DAYS, it should be obvious and in context of an actual fight THESE DAYS, you rely on your faulty memory that can't remember Bruce Lee died 14 years before Rhonda was born. In other words the question was about MMA relevancy of Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee THESE DAYS.  Are you disputing on THAT DAY Rhonda was much more relevant than either of them in MMA?

        "but in another thread you said she's never be defeated."

        In what other topic? I'm trying to be nice but I won't let you get away with lying about what I posted; give a link.

        And what does "she's never be defeated" mean? Do you mean "she'll never be defeated" or "she's never been defeated"? Maybe you can you find where I said She's undefeated THESE DAYS?

        "As for your penchant for quoting other people,"

        It's called being honest and showing what's being addressed. You complained when I didn't quote Jeet and now you're complaining when I do.

        "the more you post your erroneous 'facts' and opinions the more of an imbecile you're proving yourself to be."

        Aw, so that's why you won't let anyone remark about all the lies you tell in your blog. And speaking of lying (or is it dementia?), didn't you say I was on your block list? If you're blocking me, how can you know what I'm posting or did you mean blocking me in THOSE DAYS, THESE DAYS, or SOMEDAY?

        "Get a life and stop bothering the sane people. "

        Are you quoting what your doctor said to you when he was treating your dementia?

        And don't tell me when and where I can post; this isn't your blog.

          Good posts, RL, People here have no idea how good they got it.

          Supermarket on every corner.

          The right to speak your mind.

          The right to Religious Freedom.

          The right to defend you home and person.

          Electricity, running water, heat from gas lines, canned food.

          Credit....where would we be with out that.

          Books, that everyone can read.

          We can water our lawns, there are countries that don't see the amount of water we waste, or the food that we waste.

          We are not perfect, but life is pretty darn good with those things.

          It irks me to no end when someone from another country complains about, our Flag, it's our country dammit.

          We should have the right to fly our Flag anywhere we want, they complain about the Pledge of Allegiance in our schools.

          Now in Detroit, they do not show the National Anthem on TV before the Hockey game. BS

          Tired of just anyone running across our border and sucking our welfare dry, committing crimes

          Been labeled a racist cause I don't want illegal immigration. I don't care where you're from, come here the right way , contribute and respect our way of life.

          Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

              Political correctness = Devils pitchfork.  Try to outlaw what a person can say to the point that you

              cannot address real problems.   From Sovereignty to Insolvency heading to Slavery.  When Obama

                • You have some serious anger issues. Tell me again of your great legal wisdom and how you never heard of an attorney having multiple bar licenses. Omg lol You are dumber than b2b and that is a high standard to meet. 

                Your ocd highlighting does show some mental issues and it seems to be obvious to many . My guess is that you are reliving a fight with an ex. It is called transferance...look it up.

                  I have a question. If Hillary has a stroke before the election....and let's be honest, she is aging fast, then Kaine becomes the nominee?  Kaine's staff were belligerent, foul-mouthed nightmares when he was running in Virginia. They repeatedly buzzed my door late one night and demanded access to a gated area to get to some other townhouses. I refused and they went ballistic. A couple of little nazis. I called the local Kaine HQ the next day and was rudely told they can do whatever they want.

                    Both parties have a rule that if the nominee is unable to run anymore, a committee picks the new nominee via a complicated system of voting, there's no guarantee he'll be the new nominee.

                      Does this have to be done quickly so the election is not delayed?

                          Someone who knows something about Executive Orders, answer this please ...

                           

                           What is an Executive Order ????

                           

                          1)  Can the President bypass both Congress and the Senate by using an Executive Order ??? 

                          2)  Under what circumstances can a President use an Executive Order ??? 

                          3)  What types of legislation can he enact by Executive Order ???

                          4) What types of legislation can he NOT enact by Executive Order ???

                          5) Why is everyone so upset with Obama for using Executive Orders so much ???

                          6) What else do we need to know about Executive Orders ???

                          7) If TRUMP can't get any of his policy ideas through the Congress & Senate, or some other branch of government won't cooperate [Like a Military Mutiny - no disrespect intended], can TRUMP go Rogue and start using Executive Orders ??? 

                           

                          Enlighten me please ......

                          ....... Other Inquiring Minds want to know what the LAW is also.

                          Read today where our Governor issued an executive order firing one of his cabinet members. The definition of executive order pretty much answers most of your questions. The short answer is Presidential executive orders are used to manage Federal Government operations. Many EOs are for the Defence Department and armed forces. Here is a disposition table that might help you better understand the purpose. They can be amended, revoked, or supersede too.

                          Number 5: Obama has less EOs than any two term President back to the 19th century. I guess the people who are upset are Constitutionally ignorant.

                          As for question 7,  the President can't force Congress to pass a bill, but they have the power to veto a bill. A more likely scenario would be Clinton with a Republican House and possibly a Republican Senate.

                          The Law is Article II of the Constitution.

                            I don't trust the polls, the wife conducted a poll at work and in her department alone the vote was 25 to 2

                            in favor of Trump.  I watched a interview where Trump was asked asked why people disliked him. He replied

                            55,000 negative adds.   That was over a month ago and I would estimate that number has doubled.  This

                            election is rigged against him.  Hillary cannot be trusted to speak the truth.  The negative adds are big media

                            trying to control the election, just look at who the wife's of big media work for.   

                            It's easy to pick out the Republicans that are corrupt as well, the ones using scare tactics saying Trump will

                            destroy America.   Obama was a first term senator who never had a lick of experience in anything, except maybe

                            lying which he has become a grand master.  According  to Bill, Hillary congers up the dead and often speaks to

                            Eleanor Roosevelt, this means that Hillary could rightly be called a witch.  Hilda says Billbo will be the brain child

                            behind her economic policies and we all know how well they worked the first time around.   I would like to ask

                            Hilda what Bill was doing on those 26 plane trips to Epstein's sex island?   I am sure his response would be

                            "Can you define what, what is"  The anti-Trump add I really like is that only stupid under educated backwoods

                            idiots are voting Trump.  Oh well, I guess if something gets repeated often enough the  simple minded will believe

                            it without checking the facts.  Canada has now entered what I see as the biggest scam ever attempted on the

                            American public.  The simple minded keeps getting simpler.   Maybe I need to get in on the action,  If I study the

                            stats I see ten's of thousands attending Trump rallies where Hilda is packing in a few hundred.  The 25 to 2 also

                            looks very promising.   Just like the lottery it's possible to rig the election, I seen on the news where a few places

                            don't require a ID or voters registration card, what's up with that?  I guess the US elections are open to anyone

                            regardless of citizenship, again just like the lottery.

                            Strange statement considering your lottery systems use past performances and basically the good Presidential polling is conducted to see if there are changes in past data. If the same demographic in 2000 and 2004 predicted Bush should win in Texas, McCain in 2008, and Romney in 2012 and if the results verify the prediction (plus or minus the margin of error), there is no reason to believe the same demographic won't predict the 2016 election. Currently the polls show that while Trump is polling less than Romney in 2012 (50% to 57%), his 10 point lead means Trump will likely win in Texas.

                            I would agree with you if you're specifically talking about National polls because the only thing that counts is the electoral map. It's easy enough to predict KY's 8, Kansas' 6, and Missouri's 10 will go to Trump, but they will be neutralized by New Jersey's 14 and Maryland's 10 going to Clinton.

                              Hey bigboar... Executive orders aren't law.  Some of obama's executive orders violated Congressional law and were struck down by SCOTUS.  Sometimes a party of "no" is a good thing in our system of government.  Or didn't they teach you that in school?

                              "Hey bigboar... Executive orders aren't law."

                              Executive Orders do not require Congressional approval to take effect but they have the same legal weight as laws passed by Congress. The President's source of authority to issue Executive Orders can be found in the Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution which grants to the President the "executive Power." Section 3 of Article II further directs the President to "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed." To implement or execute the laws of the land, Presidents give direction and guidance to Executive Branch agencies and departments, often in the form of Executive Orders.

                              Don't take my word for it; read what it says in Section 3, Article II of the Constitution.
