I’d say negligence!

For some reason they think that the rules of conduct and common sense dont apply to them.
At least he got one point right, it is tghe attitude twoard guns that is the problem. Boys from the hood shooting them off like play toys. Did anyone hear about the teen ager who was posing with a loaded pistol for a facebook post and accidently killed her brother wiht a bullett to the head? Stupid people made even dumber by their immersion in the popular stupid culture.

“What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that’s not cool, that it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we’ve changed our attitudes about cigarettes.”

This is explicitly saying that we need to indoctrinate children in the public school system to think it’s bad to protect themselves. That the people that do protect themselves are bad or crazy people…

Explicit admission of government indoctrination.

One follow-up question that no one has ever asked Holder in the Fast and Furious investigation is, “Since Fast and Furious happened on your watch, and you claim ignorance of the program, you are, in fact, claiming incompetence as your defense. Is that correct?” I would love to see him squirm out of that one.

People go outside b/c the anti-freedom politicians have oppressed property rights and made it illegal to smoke indoors! I smoke and own guns. I am ashamed of neither. I know there are risks with both. If you don’t like it then you can go shove off!

It would be nice if a libertarian site put some energy into a post that was … instructive, rather than just sarcastic.

In any case Tuesday is the supposedly the day we will either here the “suggestion” or executive order. Am I the only one that feels like the POTUS is TRYING to sell guns? Also, there’s a court case making its way to the Supremes – Peruta v San Diego – that might result in every state becoming ‘right to carry.’ Any speculation on what will happen if an executive order comes in conflict with that?
