Americans Back Obama's Proposals to Address Gun Violence

Can't believe this crap.

 Given the chance to vote "for" or "against" each of nine key proposals included in President Barack Obama's plan to reduce gun violence, Americans back all nine. Americans are most likely to be in favor of requiring background checks for all gun sales (91%), increasing funding for mental health programs aimed at youth (82%), increasing funding for programs to train law enforcement and schools in responding to active armed attacks (79%), and increasing criminal penalties for people who buy guns for others -- so-called straw purchasers (75%).

  1. Incredibly stupid! Ensure that all but the military and law enforcement are disarmed! While that is not what is printed above, that is the end game....

    1. 49% of Republicans want to bring back the assault ban? I find that difficult to believe.

  3. 99% of my countrymen can vote me into slavery if they wish.

    And I would be morally and ethically justified to resist by all means at my disposal, up to and including use of lethal force. Period.
