Quote of the Day

"I’m not another gun blog. I don’t use common sense all the time, because using common sense is code for I don’t want to have to think really hard when I need to solve a difficult problem. "

DV/DBB/DTB (man of many ego-inflating names)

Interesting. DV says he doesn't use common sense to solve difficult problems. What the hell does he use then? Hope & Change? Unicorns? Fluffy bunnies?

When I need to solve difficult problem "common sense" is essential. I don't want to go pulling shit out of my ass that has no basis in reality, reason, logic or fact because without those things it's pretty damn unlikely I'm going to develop a practical solution.

You know what happens when people think they can solve problems without common sense? We get moronic "solutions" like gun control that can only be dreamed up when you've engaged in problem solving that involves no rational thought.

Here's Obama on curbing gun violence.

Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.
Clearly he understands that urban violence is a "difficult problem," and clearly "common-sense" was nowhere to be found when he crafted this brilliant policy proposal so full of hope & change. Common sense and actually thinking would require enacting a different policy than the one that Clinton's tried, and that his own administration concluded it didn't actually have a positive impact on crime. *(see summary pg. 96).

Maybe I'm just a dumb gun nut clinging to my guns, but I don't see how calling for reenacting of previously failed legislation is either "common sense" or "change." I'd say it more clearly qualifies as insanity.

Dude, seriously, why do you still bother? The people there are so indoctrinated into the Obamamessiah cult, there is absolutely no hope of salvation for them. And for those undecided people who happen to stumble upon the site, from the time I spent there, they were rightfully scared off with or without our help.

Just concentrate on putting some good stuff up here, and the rest will work out fine :).

I have about 5 posts sitting unfinished that I didn't feel like writing so I popped that out instead.

I already sent obama a letter on that. I left mine up for form if anyone wants to see. it was quick and a little rough though.

Mike - I thought your response was excellent. Short, sweet & to the point.

Sadly I doubt facts and common-sense will matter to him or to the Democratic Congress.

your probably right Mike, but hey we are doing all we can.
