Well I'm glad you feel that way but unfortunately the MSM and Democratic politicians sure didn't echo your sentiments before 2008 when the high price of gas was all Bush's fault. If you deny that wasn't the case, you're lying.

No one man is responsible for that debt, it's been there even BEFORE our country existed when we asked the French for help in the Revolution, WE are responsible for it. Democrats and republicans lie all the same to spin a topic their way. Welcome to politics

I have an idea! why dont all the good, law biding thitithens, give up all their legally regithtered gunth. This way, the criminalth won't have to uthe gunth, becauth the good guyth wont have gunth. And no one will get hurt.

Baseball bats. Look it up; the number one used weapon in violent crimes. These laws could not be made more ignorantly.

These laws are absolutely asinine. Nowhere in the constitution does the it say the right to bear arms FOR HUNTING shall not be infringed. Everyone is so caught up in this little detail which is allowing for total infringement of law abiding citizens rights. The right to bear arms to to deter tyranny, not hunt. Laws against bringing guns to schools; okay I can see concerns with this even though I could hunt before and after school and leave my shotgun in my locker or the principal's office without anyone worrying about me when I walked in. Stricter laws against harming first responders; Let's look at this and see how many people allow themselves to be taken alive after making this desperate attempt at whatever. The stricter laws are not a bad idea, just not very effective by the time someone is ready to do something like this. Lowering the magazine capacity; again no hunting preface was put into the constitution. Above and beyond all, GUNS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM!!! There is many facets to this issue, but guns are not it. You sheeple need to wake up. I won't go into all the facets right now, but creating laws in the wake of suicidal actions is just beyond moronic. I have no words for how stupid this is.
