    Yep.  Who cares about kids, you can always make some more just like them.

    Yes, people who don't line up behind Feinstein and Bloomberg hate children.

    Just like people who don't support the Patriot Act hate America and freedum.
  • Article seems lacking.  Let me take a stab at one section:

    "...and hosts a donation link to the Brady Campaign, the country's largest gun control advocacy group which consists of 3 paid employees and an intern."

    One gun blogger that I like tends to call them the Brady Campaign To Cling To Relevancy.
  • I'm sure they're all voting for expanded access to mental health care and against the war on drugs.
    Keep up the good work!

    And that's why we as a society are willing to let 80,000 people die every year in exchange for the freedom to drink beer.

    Which of the 5 million terrible policy prescriptions offered on the basis of "Think of the children!" are you advocating here, precisely?

    Most likely every one that doesn't inconvenience his current lifestyle.

    Yes. And every attempt to regulate the ability of people to purchase machines designed for the expressed purpose of killing is a violation of your right to compensate for your small penis.
  • Yeah, and where is the whining about all of the other lobbyist's cash they accept?

    Yes. And statements like these clearly show that you have a small brain.

    Yes.

  • Actually, I'm growing less fond of the 2nd as the conversation drags on.

    Pro-gun folks are beginning to push the undecided and ambivalent like myself into the anit-gun fringes. They really aren't doing themselves any favors.

    Voiceofreason01's penis size has not been disclosed, and is of no relevance to this discussion. For what reason did you feel compelled to make reference to it and to speculate upon its size? Do you suffer a psychological obsession with male genitalia?

    Second Amendment

    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

    Compare to:

    "A well educated House of Representatives, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and read Books, shall not be infringed."

    My spidey sense is telling me that you were pro gun control all along. Sorry, but while the gun control people are content to ignore the top 6 preventable causes of death, they're not convincing anyone who is truly impartial that they care about life, and they have absolutely no evidence to support the idea that an assault weapons ban will work, even though we tried one for 10 years.
  • Interesting idea but the app should use a more standard form of contacting the lawmakers. There are many folks that dont use twitter but virtually all of us have an e-mail account.
  • Still waiting on my app for oil funds, pharmaceuticals, and corn.
  • uh... I might be wrong on this but I don't think being an advocate of second amendment rights disqualifies you from being a Democrat.

    Also...

    We're not going to take a side in the gun control debate,

    Suuuure you're not. Especially with statements like this...

    you can tweet these elected officials to demand gun control legislation, call them out for hypocrisy, or heck, tell them "job well done" if you're fond of the 2nd.

    I do agree though that politicians should be called on their sh*t. However I'm sure you'll find a lot more sh*t on one side of the aisle than the other.

    But I'm not going to take sides.
  • To suggest the second applies to state militias only requires an ignorance of history.

    Can we show the fourth some love too?
  • Interesting concept, I'd like to see it used for lobbying in general.
    Maybe people could be spurred into action after seeing all of the money involved.
