A White House adviser on Sunday said he was optimistic Congress will approve at least part of President Barack Obama´s proposals to reduce gun violence in the wake of December´s massacre at a Connecticut elementary school. Just hours before Obama was to be sworn in for his second term in office, White House adviser David Plouffe said on Sunday talk shows he felt there was support in Congress for some measures, including universal background checks for gun buyers and limits on high-capacity clips. "I´m confident some of the measures you mentioned - clips, universal background checks -

Legislation required the cooperation of Congress. Boehner & Co. had better hod the line.

Interesting, however, I can find nothing whatsoever in Obama´s current tyrannical wet dream that has anything whatsoever to do with "gun violence"

There´s only one reason any government would want to disarm it´s own people, and I think we all pretty much know what it is...

I don´t think it will. We have people up for re-election and they come from pro-gun states. They´re playing with fire if they do. Especially Reid who accepted donations from the NRA.

I used to call magazines "clips," until somebody intelligent explained the difference.

And I wish Hannity would stop calling them clips, too. Or maybe not. Maybe the plan is to get the donks to ban clips, and it won´t affect anything.

Is Obama still selling firearms to Mexico´s most violent drug gangs?

Didn´t that get over 300 Mexican citizens murdered?

Why isn´t Reuters covering the "Fast & Furious" scandal?

Is Obama still hiding behind executive privilege, and refusing to answer all questions about F&F?

I plan to purchase another pistol on Tuesday, a kel tec 9mm, which I like to call the Saint Trayvon model.
And if I buy the pistol from a dealer, I have to undergo a background check. But if I buy it from a private individual here in Pennsylvania, I still have to go through a background check, and the transfer has to be done through a dealer.
Not a big deal. But if rifles and shotguns are included, that is a big deal.

Count the guns before Obama decided to make things "better."

Count them now.

It is a perfect example of any Progressive´s aggressive ignorance regarding Cause and Effect.

If the House goes along with anything from Obama on Gun Control, the Weepie-Eyed Bonner will be Primaried in 2014 and if he makes it past that, he will be clobbered in the fundraising race for the November election.

The biggest Anti-Bonner contributor will be the NRA and he knows that.

Maybe all GOP leadership candidates should be Primaried because most all are spineless wussies!

‘Primary-The-RINO PAC’. Yup, that’s the ticket.

I have a whole coffee can full of clips for my M-1 Garand. I have a whole lot of drawers full of magazines for most everything else.
I have a few jars full of stripper clips for rapid loading of magazines.
See? Its pretty straight forward. Not confusing at all.

The largest clip I have ever seen only held ten rounds of .556 ammo. The clips came in bandoliers; we used them to load our magazines.

When I see someone correct another poster for using the word "clip" instead of "magazine," I automatically assume that you are one of the douchebags that did not bother to vote last November because Romney was not "pure" enough. Is that what you really want other posters to think? Oh, and by the way, are you happy now?

#14 - Probably so regarding the Romney vote. I´ve been around guns all my life, served in the military, and am an NRA Life Member. Still sometimes use the word ´clip´ without apologies. I know the proper word is ´magazine´ like a bullet is not a ´cartidge´. What really matters is that I did vote and I know very well how to use my guns.

Remember the nasty doctrine: Never let a crisis go to waste.

Media jumped on the school shooting by yelling Gun Control,in order to cover up Bengazi hearings that are to begin soon.

The House should loudly and publicly rake Barry and his cronies over the coals over Benghazi and Fast and Furious. The House members should be so obnoxious over these scandals that the media cannot help but report it.

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
