    Politicians strategically use fear to maneuver into positions of power. They create 'issues' designed to provoke emotional response, such as so-called 'handgun violence', highly dangerous 'assault weapons', etc. in order to promise solutions while they campaign. Once they have obtained political power, it is used to gain wealth. It's not that they give a hoot about guns one way or the other -- it's all about money. Crocodile tears and AWB? Money in the bank and political power.

    Many people are oblivious to their own manipulation; enough to win an election, one way or the other. If there were enough television ads and newspaper articles, we would all be voting for whoever promised to protect us from the dreaded Booger Man. Or Global Warming. Or Trans-Fat. Or Big Tobacco.

    Radicals (left or right wing) are usually highly emotional and thus easily manipulated. You can lead a horse to water... and if he's not paying attention, you can tell him it's grape Kool-Aid.

    Cool "A mans got to know his limitations" - Dirty Harry

    I don't normally post so far into a thread because somebody usually gives a great answer, and nothing more needs to be said.

    I read this thread, and all of you are hitting on the symptoms but not the source of the problem.

    Why don't liberals get it? They were brainwashed by television.

    T.V. is the culprit. Humans believe what they see. Prior to television you believed what you parents and grandparents told you. You discussed ideas with your friends. You older brothers and sisters were your role models.

    Growing up on T.V. you watched how life was supposed to be. There was the ideals of a perfect family and a world without violence and war. Then some socialists, progressives, (enter your own term), people realized that they could help shape the world to their views with this wonderful machine.

    Add in the radical professors in the class room and these people didn't have a chance. These same disillusioned people are now reporters and journalist and they keep injecting the same non-reality based opinions.

    Take into consideration that most of these bleeding hearts that want to help the criminals and restrict your guns rights live in neighborhoods that have little or no crime. They have no concept that violence exists. These are the people that believe no animal would kill another. They don't show it on Mutual of Omaha it doesn't exist.

    As for the comment about the survivng families of violence. They were not the subjects of the violence therefore they no not the terror of the event. Those that are the victims and still don't protect themselves have not the mental skill to accept that a) it would ever happen again, b) they have the right or ability to do it.

    How many people still give their opinions on why they shouldn't wear a seatbelt. The govt. had to pass a law to make stupid people protect themselves from injury. Unfortunately the govt. will not pass an "everybody must be armed" law to protect stupid people from injury.

    That's my theory anyway.

    One thing is for sure...If we do have another civil uprising in this country allot of liberals will definitely "get it".
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    I could not agree more. There's a good bit of kool-aid being drunk around here.
    Talk about revolutions / civil war.

    They are a product of public education and many left leaning lib colleges.
    We are steadily losing the battle to "behind the scenes" anti-gun brainwashing of young malleable minds which has been going on for decades already.
    Also the mainstream media is solidly anti-gun and so it is all reinforced there also.

    Hey...somebody has to be liberal.

    When it hits the fan, who else will be the designated cannonfodder?

    Every period of history has those that are designated as such. Liberals are ours.

    Stick around long enough, and you'll see...
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Pretty much, without exception, all schools - grade schools, junior-high schools, high schools, and colleges and universities - maintain an anti-gun agenda that is propelled and influenced by both policy and teaching these days.

    I've seen this first-hand. My nieces - who were quite little at the time - would come over to visit my wife and I on occasion when we lived back in the mid-west. On one of these visits, they happened to come by while I was loading ammo for an upcoming match. They asked "What are you doing Uncle David?" I said, "I'm loading bullets girls." Their immediate response was "Can we help you Uncle David?". Their Mom - my sister - was neither pro-gun nor anti-gun, so they were naturally curious and non-judgemental about what I was doing.

    My wife and I moved to Oregon 8 years ago, and so we rarely speak with my nieces who are all grown up now (18 and 17 respectively). On our most recent visit back to the mid-west, we happened to spend some time with the younger girl. I can tell you, she is now firmly in the anti-gun camp, parroting the crap she learned from her teachers. It was pretty shocking to see the transformation in her!

    There are essentially three categories of people in this country when it comes to guns:

    1. Owners of guns that pass on a love of guns to children they may have. This group constitutes a relatively small minority of people.

    2. Haters of guns that pass on a hatred of guns to children they may have. This group also constitutes a relatively small minority of people.

    3. People who don't care that much about the issue that pass no opinion about guns on to children they may have - children that are getting their opinions about guns from school and the media. This group constitutes the relative majority of people.

    Do the math, and it's pretty easy to see the future of gun ownership in this country! We have to start fighting back against this brainwashing of our young people, or the future of guns in the U.S. is pretty much doomed to extinction.

    They don't intend to "get it." There are enemies of our land, both interior and exterior, who want to destroy this nation in favor of something our founders would not recognize. Liberals are the dupes of these enemies.

    BAC, I don't think he can however I would have said it something along these lines "From where I sit, it appears that day after day, most of our current POLITICIANS appear to be dupes of the enemies"...

    I am just sick and tired of our current government overstepping their constitutional powers. It is getting quite disgusting.

    Perhaps the Forum isn't the place for a detailed debate, however a thoughtful individual is certainly capable of discernment while observing the propaganda of the mainstream media, the drivel of the entertainment industry, and the deceptions of politicians.

    Thoughtful individuals are scarce in today's American society.

    Liberalism may be a great many things but it is not is an ideology that promotes freedom.
