Boehner, what part of “Shall not be infringed” is so damned hard to understand?

I think of you would agree that this man is not to be trusted.

If he pu$$ies out on this like he's done on everything else it will be the absolute destruction of the Republican party.

I hate to say it but it looks like he's seeking out the opportunity to do just that.

Whenever we "de-politicize" an issue, the Fascists seem to get exactly what they want.

Why should Republicans have a discussion on guns? Our position is correct. Our position saves lives. Our posiition is constitutional.

The Democrats should have a discussion on guns, because they need to accept the fact that gun control is killing people.

Discussion point 1, why were all the teachers disarmed so they had to fling themselves at or try to distract the shooter.

start discussing the US govt running guns to Mexico and being responsible for hundreds of deaths...what happened to our gun control laws then? if they can run guns in violation of law and get innocent mexicans and US federal agents killed and go unpunished, who’s next? Boehner should be fired innediately,

Do you have a link for that chart, or did you compose it yourself and if so, do you have a link to the raw data? I would like to send it to a few folk.

Sixteen GOP House members want to dump Boehner as speaker.

According to Sean Hannity, if one more GOP member signs on to dump Boehner, he’s gone as House Speaker.

As Captain Picard used to say, “Make it So!”

How about a discussion that gun free victim zones get people killed? How about a discussion of the merits of training and certifying teachers and other staff to provide an armed response to an active shooter? How about a discussion of all the benefits of an armed, polite society? etc. etc. How about an active offense by the GOP rather than a whimpering defense that will concede new restrictions at the very beginning?

Honestly, there has to be some procedure to remove this POS from leadership. WTH kind of geldings do we have representing us these days!? My goodness, we have got to start fighting or we’re lost for good, first taxes, then guns, and tomorrow climate change. We’re being railroaded, overran, and unequal to any challenge.

Dr. Suzanna Hupp Testimony to Congress

Hupp was in the Kileen Texas restaurant when a killer opened fire and killed 23 people including both of her parents. Hupp was a conceal carry holder who obeyed the law and left her gun in the car. The Gunman didn't seem too concerned about the anti gun policy of the restaurant.

This woman schooled congress.

It’s time for a discussion on mental health and focusing on the problem of unstable and dangerous people remaining in open society by the policies implemented by liberals to slow and prevent institutionalization. This guy was crazy, as have been the other recent mass killers. If guns aren’t available and you have a crazy person intent on killing, doesn’t really take that much intelligence to come up with another vehicle of death.
Time to stand up and blame the liberals for their policies that result in innocent deaths!

Yep. If they roll over on this issue, I’m out as well.

Hope they enjoy minority party status for a generation, because I suspect you and I are far from the only ones who feel that way.

I wonder how the effort to overthrow Boehner as speaker is going? While I’m not expecting any foolish press releases by those who might pull this off, I would relish seeing Boehner’s machine fall apart.

He doesn’t impress me as someone who creates loyalty in others. He rules by threats and intimidation. If he is not elected speaker on the first ballot, the short knives will come out.

LOL. Welcome back from outer space. It’s Dec. 2012 and the Rep. Party under the leadership (not) of it’s Speaker has joined forces with the opposition.

You know what? I’m wondering if anyone on the Republican side believes ANYTHING is worth fighting for? Anything? Or is every principle, every value subject to “compromise”?

This is what is so disheartening. There seems to be no one on our side with conviction and the raw courage to stand for those convictions. The men in this society have become nothing more than eunichs.

This clown cannot have a talk about budget cuts, but he is open to a conversation about our rights. I knew Obama was a communist, however I expected Boner to at least understand one issue. This clown needs to go...and I don’t care what cliff we toss him off. OUT!

I don’t believe the GOP House members have gone public yet with their intentions....Hannity didn’t mention names.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the TEA Party members dumped from their committees by Boehner were amongst the sixteen.

I really hope they succeed.....Boehner gets worse by the day.

Has everyone forgotten this pathetic p.o.s. blubbering and sobbing the night he became Speaker of the House?

how can anyone be remotely surprised that this worthless ankle-grabber and pillow-biter is selling us all down the river every chance he gets?

I am beyond done with the Republican Party. They are over.
