The thought process being employed by the Left is becoming more and more obscure. The actions taken by President Obama, by his own admission, would have done nothing to prevent the Sandy Hook tragedy to which the Left insists they are compelled to take immediate action. They are, however, in perfect keeping with the Lefts ongoing desires regarding gun control which many of them admit ultimately is to ban guns despite the 2nd Amendment to the Constitutions prohibiting the government from even infringing on our right to keep and bear arms. Still they chasten those of us who, therefore, doubt Obama’s sincerity and worry that he is being disingenuous with ulterior motives.

Uh, Raymond, I'd love to see your evidence that the goal of "many" on the Left is to ultimately "ban guns. If you visit liberal websites or listen to liberal talk radio, you will find that most of the discussion centers on the usual concerns of rational people -- e.g., background checks, mental health, and selective restrictions on firearms and clips that no one but a soldier or law-enforcement officer could conceivably need. Aside from one occasional liberal poster at TH, I can't personally recall anyone suggesting an overall ban on guns -- even as a long-term goal.

To be fair to Raymond, I don't see where he said that many liberals want and "overall" ban on guns, which I would take to mean a ban on ALL guns. There are many liberals who want to ban handguns and certainly semiautomatic guns with a pistol grip. We've seen statements from leaders of the gun control lobby, such as Josh Sugarman, and Nelson "Pete" Shields. Then you have people such as US Senator Daniel Patrick Moynahan (D-NY) who said we don't need to ban guns, we need to put a 10,000% tax on ammunition, which would have the same effect. There are plenty of instances where powerful and/or leading liberals have been honest in their statements and indicated their desires to ban whole classes of guns, including handguns and semiautomatics.

Any semiautomatics with a pistol grip. Why is a pistol grip so dangerous?

"Rational People"? Is that why Air America is doing so well?

You progs wouldn't recognize "rational" if it slapped you.

And yes, Diane Feinstein and her ilk ARE calling for a total ban on private ownership of firearms.

Last night St. Louis radio host Dana Loesch went on CNN to "debate" Piers Morgan about gun control. The problem? Every single time Morgan asked her a question, he rudely interrupted her answer and went on an anti-gun tirade. At the end of the segment, Morgan got so angry that he crumpled a piece of paper and threw it across the desk. Just this week, Loesch explained to Morgan that an AR-15 uses .223 ammo after he said AT-15 rifles use .233 ammo.

"Do you want a tank? DO YOU WANT A TANK?!"
