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.

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.

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.

Democrats plan to turn out thousands of African-American voters this fall, in an effort to hold the Senate majority. The challenge is that some of them aren’t yet registered to vote. Which begs the question, after opportunities to elect and re-elect the first black president, why would an African-American choose this year’s midterm elections to finally jump from the sidelines and into the game? This question especially matters given that contests in North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas, Michigan and Louisiana will help determine control of the Senate. Democratic strategists believe there is low-hanging fruit in the black populations in Arkansas and Louisiana, where Democrats

Four years ago this week, Polish President Lech Kaczynski was killed in a plane crash near the Katyn Forest in Russia where he was flying to honor the 22,000 Polish officers, lawyers, priests and professors slaughtered there by the Soviets 70 years before.

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the "Women in the World" meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York Times

A White House aide said Mr. Obama “visited briefly” with Ms. Davis following his remarks at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin to mark the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act. The meeting took place after reporters traveling with Mr. Obama had been moved into vans, so they didn’t witness the meeting.

Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
