“I think Beohner is a deep dem plant and has been one all along.”
Been saying that a long time. Glad to see that a few other people finally get it. It is too late to matter however. The conservatism that built America has already been effectively taken out. There is no great leader left to stand up for it any longer.
My choices are Bachman or Col West.
Bonehead must go. He's unhinged.
If you have access to Facebook, please post this at the Varney & Co. page. Stuart Varney is a Euro-weenie when it comes to guns.
I swear these nuts are gov’t experiments working towards a goal.
That was the best thing I think I could have seen today regarding this. Thank you.
The GOP is dead, bring back the whigs.
So basically they’re going to tell us that they’re going to ban guns.
And we can complain or add comments they won’t care about or even consider.
Where was the “discussion” on Healthcare?
I’ve got an idea. Since governments have by far the worst record in terms of “gun deaths”, let’s start the discussion with gun control....for the government.
Ban semiautomatics? OK, fine, but let’s start with a “trial measure”” that eliminates black guns for the FBI/BATFE/IRS etc.
When the GOP abandons the 2nd amendment I’m out of there!
John McCain, without the war record and pudgy daughter.
What c-word that man is.....
Boehner is an alcoholic. He’s got problems he doesn’t want to face amd deal with. He’ll go to his grave a boozer and a weeper, and a guy who likes to show how big and strong he is with strong words ONLY and then capitulation.
A loser and wrong for the most important job that he holds.
He holds the lives of so many people in his hands and he caves in to the enemy instead. A dangerous man and he must be removed.
REMOVE BOEHNER NOW!
Get Rid Of Boehner, NOW!
You definitely do NOT want Israel’s gun model. Trust me.
I will also call my own representative to let him know of my displeasure with Mr. Boehner's call for "discussion" on the Second Amendment.
Additionally, I will be glad to contribute to any pro-2nd Amendment challenger for Mr. Boehner's House seat in 2014.
I will also call the RNC to let Mr. Priebus that the GOP needs to remain firm on this issue.
I don't think that the left can generate more hysteria-driven folly like the 1968 GCA, but Mr. Boehner's moronic capitulation to "discussion" doesn't help our side at all.
Mr. Boehner, rather than mewling about the 2nd Amendment, why don't you please do something useful? Clearly, we have far too much government; why not spend some time on, say, getting rid of the Department of Education?
Engaging the left when it is on yet another quest to exploit a tragedy in order to pass hysteria-driven laws is simply bad politics. Instead, move the discussion back to our vast over-spending; we are on the edge of taxmeggedon, and there are far more productive items for the Speaker of the House to be "discussing".
He acts like he has ovaries. This might help him.
Don’t know why anyone’s surprised.
People are fond of saying that elections have consequences and that’s true. But it is also true that there are consequences for having gone out and rah rah’d a liberal gun grabber to lead the party.
It sent a very clear message to the GOP. That message was...
“We will feed you crap because you have shown us that you love the taste.”
And now here we are faced with what could be the sudden and in very real ways, death knell for t=our only means of defense against actual communist tyranny. Widespread gun control and confiscation.
Bohner will indeed have his ‘conversation. It will go like this.
“The American people, by the millions supported Mitt Romney, who had a very open record of being pro gun control. Their support tells me that these people are willing to moderate the traditional Republican stance on guns. Because it would be absurd to think they would have voted for a gun grabber otherwise.”
WHY should Bohner fear a backlash? He has no reason to. He is VERY aware that GOP voters will continue to vote GOP no matter what they do. No matter how liberal their policies. No matter how many times they roll over and give the Democrats EVERYTHING they want.
And he knows that across the blogsphere, a significant number of the very people calling themselves ‘Conservative will run out like good little soldiers and make excuses for him, trash anyone who opposes the GOP and do everything within their power, including lying through their teeth, to ensure that Johnny and Co. get the votes come 2014/2016.
And since we have seen EVERY BIT of the above just play out in technicolor over the past several months, we should not be the least bit shocked.
But perhaps we, collectively speaking should leave the plantation. Or STFU and enjoy the flavor of the next sandwiches. And the next, and the next... I would hope by now people are having a serious revaluation of their ‘beliefs’.
EDIT...Got ahead of my self...
“WE sent a very clear message to the GOP. We will continue to eat what ever crap you serve up because we have shown by our actions that we love the taste.”
Thank you for posting that. I foresee it making it’s way to my facebook friends.
I’d never seen that before. What an awesome testimony. And I see that douche schumer just sitting there smirking.
This asshat is a complete joke. He’s NOTHING like a Republican. He is a liberal Democrat.

Read the 2nd amendment Boehner. Read it out loud on national television.
Thats all the discussion we need.
Surrender Monkey! Member of the RINO wing of Vichy GOP. Resign you puke.
Everyone should switch registration to ‘Independent’...and Ohio? This is the best you can do? This vain old treasonous drunk? Get lost.
“Trusted”? Like Daddy used to say; “Wouldn’t trust him in an outhouse with a muzzle on”! And with a short list of exceptions that escape me at the moment, same thought pretty much applies to everyone on Capitol Hill.
Better to pose the question by working forward from who would a worse job. in my view, Joe S**T the Ragman or one of the Smuckatella boys would at a minimum be honest.
They MUST avoid that at all costs.
You may be over them but they aren’t over you, well to be accurate they are over you and me. We are subject to the incompetence and corruption of these idiots.
Yep. I agree. Might was well take it over the cliff. Give the people what they want. It’s going to go there anyway. (At this point not sure it would teach anyone a lesson but give them an excuse to keep blaming someone else.)
She was terrifuc. I loved her downright truthful last sentence.
It is the real reason for the 2nd amendment, needed now more than ever.
He won’t do anything knee-jerk, except completely capitulate.
That’s quite an impressive document.
Looking across the developed world it seems that CULTURE is a big determinant (i.e., drinking in Scotland, suicide in Japan, conscription in Switzerland, etc.), NOT GUNS.
Let’s think, shall we - what does the US have in great abundance (culturally speaking) that other countries don’t?
The political correctness of all of this is what needs to stop.
It’s time people just spoke and said exactly what they mean.
Democrats, lefties, liberals, et al, want to ban guns and take them away from as many of us peons as possible. They want to make it harder for people to obtain guns. It’s not about safety or protecting anyone or stopping crime or more shootings, it’s about CONTROL. It always has bee about control. Of course, stupid people, who are already willingly giving up their guns, don’t realize this. But those people, IMO, don’t deserve to have guns anyway.
On the other hand, Republicans pussy foot around the issue, as usual. Instead of their tiptoeing around and trying not to step on any ones toes, they should be out there front and center, speaking plainly and clearly that gun control, regulations and restrictions are not the answer, never have been the answer and this “discussion” about guns, is irrelevant and a waste of everyones time. The basic fact is, we, as Americans, under the US Constitution, have a GOD GIVEN RIGHT to own a GUN. NO ONE has any right, whatsoever, to take or hinder that right. PERIOD!!!! So everyone needs to STFU about it.
Then, it won’t be politicized. See if you take the issue completely OFF the table, and refuse to discuss it, it no longer is something that can be politicized.
From there, the discussion SHOULD BE about the politicization that has been done THUS FAR and about removing any regulations and bans in place, to prevent people from choosing to carry (openly or not).
Look, IMO, the only thing that truly can be done with mentally ill “white boys” is to make people more aware and more prepared on mental health, and proper parenting. However, the federal government has no business in either issue. If the states wanted to develop programs to help with these issues, I’m all for that. But it shouldn’t be mandated or regulated. It should be ones choice to participate.
Oh, and another thing that would help, aside from allowing everyone that wants to, to carry....is providing free self defense classes to everyone that wants to learn.
Just my $02. But the politics and politicians and their non stop Political Correct BS is making me want to vomit.
Lets think, shall we - what does the US have in great abundance (culturally speaking) that other countries dont?
You don’t speak for me John, you pathetic coward.
And the Political Class will be very protected by armed people while we the “plebian classes” will be unprotected and attacked by criminals.
A “common sense” thing would be to also disarm their protective details
That way we are all equal, once they are as unprotected as us, then we can have a meaningful discussion.
Otherwise, they’re just hypocritical BS artists.
But that’s redundant.
It’s been decided. To stave off a full out ban on the evil black rifles, there will be a ban on importation and manufacture of magazines with a capacity higher than 30 rounds and probably even 20 rounds. There will be a limit on number of guns purchased and there will be a limit on ammunition purchased. They will also go after gun shows and there will be an intentional gumming up of the data collection and database updates of the NICS system to make it more difficult.
Of course none of this could have stopped the nutbag or will stop the next nutbag but it will be “something”..
They will do whatever they can and when the next shooting happens, they will say they need more.
He should just give the gavel back to Pelosi.
What a joke.
This guy is a complete cave-in failure. Unbelievable!
Why not instead have a ‘discussion’ on the societal devaluation of human life that has occurred in this country since the Roe v. Wade decision was first handed down.
The Republican Party needs to be destroyed. Boner and every politician who supports him need to go.
My stockpile is safe, at the bottom of the lake. They will never find them unless they take it out of my hand postmortem.
I have read several places about the infamous “Sixteen GOP House members want to dump Boehner as speaker.” But there’s never a list available.
Methinks this is bullshit or some sort of dodge. Pardon my skepticism.
how about calling for talks about how parents raise their children, how the family has bene attacked, how about video games and movies which can only show sex and guts hanging out today.
Nah guns are an easy target and would be a gift to the left if they got them all banned.
Using the deaths of kids to deflect their failed social experiments, well how’s that social issues coming along for the left.
You know promote divorce, woman does not need a guy, boys not needing a father, mothers trying to be friends instead of laying discipline down and then wondering in the kids teens she is now losing him.
society has borken down because the left wanted it and now they reap what they have sown
But the low hanging fruit of pointing out the hypocrisy of pooliticians was too easy and tempting.
The politicians see easy pickings in disarming us.
If they were to be disarmed and vulnerable in the same fashion as what they plan for us, there’d be some different tunes coming from them.
Instead, they preach disarming us.
Then they grandsatdn on a pile of dead kids, fake cry, and idiots buy it by the slopful.
Yeah, I’m ticked.
Typo alert, check your keyboards.
That is a nice way of saying that some members of the Republican party are planning to roll over on whatever anti-gun legislation is passed.
oh really Bohner..........what don’t you understand? is it the N or the O?
