Don´t call it gun control, says
Democrats´ point person on the issue

CNN, by Gregory Wallace

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/6/2013 4:46:15 AM

The Californian picked to lead congressional Democrats´ efforts on gun control says the positions held by some gun rights advocates are unnecessarily divisive, and that government action should go beyond simply outlawing certain weapons. "I think assault weapons are a pox on the home of every gun owner," Rep. Mike Thompson said Saturday on CNN. "I think that´s the thing that´s going to cause the overwhelming majority of people in this country who aren´t gun owners to have negative feelings about those of us who are gun owners." Thompson is a gun owner and hunter himself,

Do not "think", Mike Thompson. The evidence you have provided has proven you are incapable of rational thought.

Free clue: No one has suggested that all teachers and principals be armed. Did you insert that into your ignorant statements to inflame the situation? Of course you did.

And here is another free clue: You do not know what an assault weapon is. Try to educate yourself, so you do not appear to be as stupid as you seem to be.

And while you are attempting to educate yourself, get someone competent in the English language to explain our 2nd Amendment to you.

Great. Another fake sportsman who served in Vietnam who follows the teachings of Marx and Lenin. Does this guy look like an Easter Island statue too?
Seeing the names on that panel panel makes me think maybe they stacked the deck against freedom. The president wouldn´t do that, would he?

A CNN poll is bogus.

Thompson´s "practical solutions" are just the liberal boilerplate. Ban scary weapons and enough rounds to stop a criminal.

John Kerry served in Viet Nam.

#3 it is a fool´s errand to negotiate away our God given rights. You seem to think the Right to Bear arms comes from the government and can be modified or revoked by a simple vote in Congress. Please read up on the Constitution and look up what "Shall Not Be Infringed" means.

Mr. Thompson is being ingenious with his words. ANY weapon, used in the wrong fashion, can be an assault weapon. It doesn´t matter if this man says he owns guns. In the current climate of democrats stealing every last thing they can from their fellow citizens, I don´t trust him. Pics of his weapons, or it ain´t happening. Isn´t that the slogan?

I dunno, #3. Did you watch the video?

Thompson repeatedly refers to "assault magazines". What is that supposed to mean?

He claims he carried an "assault weapon" in Viet Nam. He must not have been in an infantry unit. We carried fully automatic rifles, not ´scary looking´ semi-autos.

Then he says everything should be on the table, but immediately excludes the idea of putting armed guards in schools.

It seems to me that the ones with the "no negotiation" policy are the Dems in the Congress.

We need to go on offense against democrats.
I bet half of them ran on pro-2nd amendment issues.
Get them out in the open and ask if they support Obama gun control.
Do it. Call your own State Reps and ask their opinion, research back when they were running, what did they say.
We are all Breitbart now.

Firstly, I don´t understand Dems who own firearms and remain Dems (or continue to retain their firearms). Do they think they´ll get an elitist exemption when any of their stupid laws go into effect? I believe that in former times (also currently) they were called "useful idiots".

Secondly, I am all for negotiating ... i.e., lets negotiate rescinding some of the currrent gun control laws that are on the books. I firmly believe that I (a private citizen) should be able to purchase and own any weapon that is available to the military. After all, in a confrontation with a bad government you shouldn´t automatically put yourself into a weaker position.

#3: You really must get out of the house more often and get lots of vitamin D sunshine and fresh air.

This US Rep from San Fran is so full of BS that I became slightly nauseous part way through the clip. He is the point man to go after the soccer mom vote.

This is all window dressing and slight of hand stuff. They are really going after full registration of all firearms so they can issue a list of what has to be turned in just as was done in Briton/Australia/New Zealand and was tried in Canada.

This Congress won’t go along with that but if we lose the House in 2014, we are done for. In the mean time, Obama will use Executing Orders and agency regulations to restrict and demonize gun owners and grease the skids for the 2014 election.

If this can’t be stopped politically, we as a nation are in for a heap big lot of trouble.

These Fascist in DC are devious and evil people who will settle for nothing less than total control of all Americans.

Their primary MO is to divide us into social factions, women against men, minorities against whites, on-the-dole against provides, useful idiots against free thinkers and of course wusses against gun owners.

It’s all in Saul Alinsky’s play book and we should learn how to use it against them.

Thompson´s biography states that he served with the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vietnam. It also states that his tour in the Army was from 1969-1972. The 173rd Airborne Brigade was in Vietnam from 1965-1971, so it is possible that Thompson saw combat. However, if he joined the Army in 1969, went through basic training, then infantry training, then Airborne school, before being assigned to the 173rd; it is possible that he arrived in the Nam just before the 173rd left for home. I am not writing this to impugn his record but to look for some clarification. Did he serve in actual combat? His bio makes no mention of any combat decorations. I cannot see a politician missing any opportunity to make himself look good. Was he "in the rear with the gear"? He says he carried an assault rifle in Vietnam. Quite true. He carried an M-16, a true, fully automatic assault rifle as defined by the Department of Defense. An AR-15, which he is calling an assault rifle, is not. It is a semi-automatic (i.e. a self-loader) that is incapable of fully automatic fire as configured. I am forever dumbfounded by these politicians who claim to have fought in wars against totalitarian regimes and yet work tirelessly to bring about the same in the United States.

I find it funny that the very same people who will vote to subsidize another 100,000 police officers (union building) will not support the idea of subsidizing armed guards in public schools. The republicans should come out on this big time. But they won´t.

Here´s a lesson in online security: Passwords are important. They keep your information safe. Crucially, they also prevent other people from impersonating you. Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way. On a story explaining how the Heartbleed bug could slow down the Internet, a commenter scoffed at the "Heartbleed thingamajig," arguing that the Internet´s handwringing over security was mostly overwrought: I couldn´t give a flying fig about the Heartbleed thingamajig. Two years already the thing has been running loose ... and not a word of someone crying over its damage. Say ... does anyone really know its origin?

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers.

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
