    Ignorance is the real enemy, for which the response on religious and gun nuts are enemies. Apparently, you don't have a clue who's the enemy. I can partially agree on gun nuts, but there is a reason for the 2nd Amendment and if observed and managed in society is worthy of respect in this nation. You forgot the mentally ill with guns, unless you mean gun nuts are those with a mental illness and gun are gun nuts. Not all mentally ill people are nuts, which is a derogatory term and falsely labeling people with a mental illness is nuts. So, again it is ignorance that people respond like this against religion and gun nuts............you just don't know who the factual enemy is.

    No, but ALL gun nuts are mentally ill.

    On religion our nation was built on many religious principles. Most universities and hospitals have been built by religions. Cultures around America is a result of religious influence. Our laws of the nation was influenced by religion. You should read and make better interpretation of religion in America's history. In fact, there is strong influence of religions building most all countries in the world.

    ​And because religion has a huge influence on society, that makes it good? I think not. If Christ ever existed (doubtful) he would be rolling around on the cross watching his "followers" destroy society and misinterpreting and misunderstanding him.

    I anticipate a response denying the facts, but I've known this about you all that will do anything to discredit religion at all cost......even lie and misquote. It's an apparent character issue on this Democratic Hub.

    You do have a difficult time with reality, don't you!

    Yes, ignorance is the real enemy and its ignorance that refuses to let peace have a chance. God is patient with us and His door is always open for those who desire to meet.

    If there is a god out there it has done a piss poor job as witnessed by today's society and its "followers" God save us all from god!

    That's just not true. The NRA and their Republican pawns make it so these shooters can get their hands on assault weapons so they can go shoot up these schools, hospitals, and other public spaces. That means the NRA has the blood of these innocent civilians on their hands.

    Please explain to me why someone needs an assault weapon other than for killing human beings. They serve zero, literally zero, purpose other than killing human beings. They would obliterate an animal if someone used it for hunting, so what exactly is the point of them being legal in America other than killing as many Americans as possible?

    johnnycee Wrote: your grievance is with the legislators, who apparently follow their constitutes wishes and vote accordingly, and some feel that it's really pandering to gain another term, so even knowing this the voters still vote these officials to another term. So what's the solution? I see the problem as needing better access during the background check, especially in the area of mental health and not more restrictive laws.

    If the legislators voted the way their constituents want then we would have stricter gun control laws in America, but they vote the way the NRA tells them to. A solid majority of Americans want stricter gun laws and an even bigger majority of Americans, 92% to be exact, support a background check on every gun purchase in America.

    Both of these are things the NRA opposes and neither of them are law because of the NRA, not because a Representative or Senator is listening to their constituents.

    You are wrong on both counts as far as the NRA is concerned, if Legislators are not doing what their constituents want them to do ,then there is remedy for that, it's called an election, so again the fault lies with the individual legislator and not the NRA lobby or any lobby for that matter.

    You are living in a fantasy world if you honestly believe that legislators give two shits what their constituents think about gun control. Poll after poll after poll shows a strong majority of Americans, and even 74 percent NRA members, want stricter gun control laws and a universal background check. I can only assume you are part of the 26 percent against...

    The NRA lobbyists have unfettered access to Republican Senators and Representatives. These Republican legislators won't give 9/11 clean up workers the time of day, as shown by Jon Stewart and 9/11 first responders who walked into dozens of Republican Senators offices only to be turned away, but I guarantee you those same Republican members would gladly open their doors to a lobbyist for the NRA.

    So, the individual American has no power against the NRA. If they did then we would have much stricter gun control laws because the vast majority of Americans want it.

    No AMC ; no "human invented" god thing has patience with us; because whatever may be up there does not know that word; ask the billion stars up there.

    Regardless of "religion" we as tiny nothing people determine our own destiny and nothing from outside this globe interferes, unless you can prove such. So put guns and religion together then you get an ISIS situation. Or put guns, religion and politics together then you get ( Hitler) Trump. I hope you understand for a change that religion is only a "tool"to get power over the people, as well to "soften" the blow of "death" with a huge lie.

    Religion promises heaven but promises hell if you try to get to heaven through your own device. Why is that so? My theory is that if the peasants try to get to heaven too soon there will be nobody left to work in the fields, or car wash or Walmart.

    I don't reside in any fantasy world although you seem to have a foot or two in your world of want to believe, again you read into a post much more than what was posted, as you often do, I said that if legislators don't listen to their constituents then there is a remedy, the premise of the post was that some believe that the NRA controls Congress, which of course is false, NRA is nothing more than another Lobby group of which there are many, way to many that I might add. The Congress has both GOP as well as Democrats with a smattering of smaller political parties, all of whom have ties to some Lobby group or another, so we go back to the adage of we get the best form of government that we vote for, it has been said that the only way for a corrupt government to get elected is for the good people to not vote.

    jaredsxtn, you said : "They would obliterate an animal if someone used it for hunting, so what exactly is the point of them being legal in America other than killing as many Americans as possible?"

    jaredsxtn, Assault weapons are the least powerful of all rifles and especially the least powerful of deer hunting rifles. But exaggerating for effect sometimes misses some very powerful truthful information. Some research can get you some very important factual information about the power of assault weapons.

    Trust me, I have done plenty of research on assault weapons. I've done plenty of research on all weapons. Are you honestly suggesting that semi-assault rifles or assault rifles won't take a deer down?

    What if you shoot the deer in the head? The bullet from a semi-assault or assault rifle won't take that deer down if you shoot it in its brain? That must be a weak ass bullet if it kills thousands of Americans a year, but can't take a deer down if you shoot it in its head.What purpose do assault (or semi-assault) weapons serve other than killing human beings?

    The 2nd Amendment doesn't give you unfettered access to every weapon that you can possibly get your hands on. That is why you can't buy a bazooka or fighter jet.

    You said : "they would obliterate an animal" . I was saying that you didn't know what it was designed for. It is a 22 caliber bullet purposely designed with low power to stay in the body longer causing more death and destruction. A higher powered round would pass through the body not causing as much destruction and disabling. People have a hard time recognizing and stating that the AR types are low power weapons because they can't associate death and destruction with a low power bullet. The AK47s are a little more powerful and technically not as lethal as the .223 .

    The Department of Homeland Security’s new framework for combating terrorism addresses the rise of far-right violence. A report released Friday (September 20) states that “domestic terrorists… have caused more deaths in the United States in recent years” than foreign terrorist organizations. The guidance also broadens the definition of terrorism to include “targeted violence,” which it defines as “attacks otherwise lacking a clearly discernible political, ideological, or religious motivation,” and uses the 2017 Las Vegas shooting as an example. The report notes that most perpetrators of such targeted violence use guns. But none of DHS’s recommendations addressed ways to curb gun access.
