Editorials Seethe with Anger over 'Shameful' Gun Control Defeat
CNSNews ^ | 4/18/2013 | Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr.

Posted on 04/18/2013 8:27:41 AM PDT by rktman

In reaction to the defeat of gun control in the U.S. Senate yesterday, editorial pages across the nation are seething with anger, lashing out at rural America, gun manufacturers and the NRA.

Man do they hate those of us that love this country despite their elist attitudes of tolerance. Most of these clowns live the life of luxury that few of us will have the opportunity to. Cocktail parties, mixing with "celebs" and the politically correct persons that "really matter"? I prefer to remain a red neck/peon. Not a serf or slave.

The only people yelling “shameful” anymore are religious leftists bordering on Jewish, at least from what I hear at services.

How about we register every reporter, editor and owner of every media company in the US and clear them through a federal crime registry before they can own, report, or write about “the news”.

The headlines read “Gun Control Loses” instead of “Freedom Wins”. Liberal bias in the news?

Editorials Seethe with Anger over 'Shameful' Gun Control Defeat Loss for Obama

There fixed it. While I'm sure the liberal editors at the nations rags also wanted gun control, they wanted a victory for Obama much more. That is why they were willing to throw away the Assault Weapons Ban and the Magazine limits with nary a whisper, they didn't even get outraged when "Universal" background checks were gutted. They just wanted some bill gun control bill, ANY gun control bill make it through the senate so they could crow about an Obama victory. Now, not only do they not have a victory, they are trying to tamp down "lame duck" president talk, the worst of all possible outcomes (for them).

Roger that.

'Tis the crowd that I prefer to hang out with. No one, not once, has ever asked me what I do for a living. The few times that work has come up, has been in the context of "I can't make it, gotta work."

We talk about important things - kids, football, lawn crabgrass - instead. Only people that have ever asked my profession are all social climbers, and frankly, fairly unlikable.

Editors should have a waiting period and background check before writing articles.

The First Amendment lets all sorts of insane people speak too freely. Abuse of language might hurt the chilluns.

If only one child is saved from their anti-freedom rhetoric, it is worth the cost of limiting speech.

Remember it well, and let none of us be fooled again. These people would send us to death camps the moment they gain enough power to do so. They are not the Republicans and Democrats of a half century ago - too many of them are something far different.

Dude. “Jews” in America voted for 0bama at a 72% rate (IIRC). But only 49% believe in G-d.

So don’t say leftism borders on Judaism. Cultural Jews are leftists first, and believers are a minority.

Just call them post-Jewish Stalinists if you must.

This is called ‘politics’... if it's too hot in the kitchen, GET OUT!

In America, you can elect representatives, send them to DC, write books, speak on TV and radio, give interviews, GO OUT AND VOTE, etc... remember? Here, there are many legitimate and effective ways to work within the system.

If you don't like the laws, you can work within the system to change things.

This is NOT (yet) some third world s^%$ hole where you just up and do as you please because you want it to be different!

Conservatives in America are living proof that you have to live with the state of things until and UNLESS you can vote the people and the changes you want. Right now the Liberals have THEIR guy (such as he is) in office. If HE can't cope with the system and work effectively within the system... they can BLAME HIM!!!

Damn right. And when TSHTF, they will be sending their hired flunkies to red America to confiscate our food storage. They won't get a warm welcome.

I hope to live to see the day that we hold Nuremburg type trials for them and give them the Julius Streicher treatment for their key role in transforming this country from good to evil.

Hey, no state-run media here. All the little parrots just happen to use precisely the same phrase - “shameless” - as Dear Leader, and quote the same phony statistic - 90% approval. All of them, goose-stepping along in a tight formation. It’s so pathetic it’s actually funny.

There are two kinds of gun control advocates; The ‘low information’ and the ‘true believer.’

The ‘low information’ gun control advocates don’t really know anything about guns. They just repeat whatever sound bite or pithy factoid they’ve heard lately. They are either scared of guns or simply don’t like them, don’t know why anyone would want to own a real gun, and wish guns would just go away. While they may not necessarily intend for everyone’s guns to be confiscated they would most likely say ‘Well, it’s probably for the best,’ and go along with it.

The ‘true believer’ gun control advocates have one simple goal: To make the private possession of any firearm a felony. Period. They want to confiscate every gun not controlled by the government. Some simply hate guns while others see privately held guns as an ‘impediment’ to some other goal or plan. They will take as many years as necessary to achieve this goal, decades even. They are nothing if not patient. They will never stop. When they grow too old to continue they will pass on the job to the next generation of ‘true believers.’

This bill’s defeat is simply a battle in an ongoing war.

Gun rights advocates must remain forever vigilant.

We need to stay focused!

Most of the news from the Obamanation Administration centers around topics that are designed to be just another Obamanation Smokescreen to divert the attention away from Obama managing each new Constitutional Crisis into a Regulation that violates the Constitution.

“Never let a Crisis go to waste,” is the rule that guides Commie Obama.

Examples of these Obamanation distractions are most of the social issues that get attention by the Liberal Agenda Media.

Our sorry Congressional RINOs have been to stupid to learn this smoke and mirrors distraction game, and run from bargain to bargain or deal to deal, with nary a thought to use REGULAR ORDER, as designed by our Founding Fathers to protect us from Tyrants such as B. Hussein Obama.

As any card-carrying Obamanation Journalist will tell you:

” - - - We must support Obama “ - - - TO FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - - - ” into a totally Regulated Communist Obamanation of Debt and Doom.

After all, how else can “- - - everyone get a fair shot?” - - - “

BTW, RECEIVING a “fair shot” would have been a lot easier if Commie Obama had succeeded in his personal recent attempted “bipartisan” destruction of the 2nd Amendment to disarm us - - - - .

We’re on it. At least I am here in NV. Looks like “we” managed to avoid any catastrophic legislation this time around. I get updates (along with many others I’m sure) from one of our pro 2nd amendment state senators and assemblymen to keep us up to date so we can comment and contact others who may have a “differing” opinion.

They are fueling the fears of gun owners with their level of anger at being defeated.

One may worry just how they would react to not getting their way, if they knew their opposition was fully disarmed.
