What is gun violence? I own a lot of guns and I have never had them become violent. Try to take my property or infringe my rights and I will defend that violently if necessary.

I think he's more concerned with disarming law abiding citizens than he is with stopping gun violence. He has said nothing about the horrible violence in Chicago since he was elected. Nobody ever got killed in Chicago when Bush was President.

If banning guns works why do police in New York, DC, and Chicago need guns?

Presidential candidates on both sides have been making promises forever, and
they would love to keep these promises. Pragmatism is the name of the game.However, if our
illustrious congress won't permit, then people think the
President ain't legit.

President Obama once again shows that he stands up on his principles as he walks into the arena with the NRA to take on these assault weapons and hundred round magazines that these cowardly unpatriotic right-wingers use – that criminals use… republican politicians has so much blood on their hands as their desire to appease the NRA and cling to their guns has snuffed out the safety of the American people.

Maybe if the Left and Obama would do some actual soul searching, they'd realize it is their attacks on every moral foundation of Western civilization, that has caused the increased and continued violence. The Presidential jackass has implemented lax, even validating approaches to drug use. He's implemented letting millions of illegals continue their illegalities. He's given 100% approval to killing babies for convenience, which has impacted the Black communities more than anyone. He's degraded people's perception of the role of government by telling them the government will feed them, house them and effectively buy their votes. There is not one area of society he has not attacked, polarized and/or abandoned morally, spiritually and economically.

If these manipulating control freaks would clean up their own approach to society, maybe the nutcases wouldn't be crawling out from under their rocks.

Liberals are falling in droves. Once 61% voter engaged has dropped to 38%. Basically showing why Obama is producing these ads of lies and distortions......a shipwreck in the making.

Both Gallup and Rasmussen have Romney now ahead while NBC still is trying to manufacture polls by over sampling liberals by 11% to try and keep what little is left..........leaning left.

Obama still in Defence mode over his lame comment that businesses aren't built by their owners....

The Republican's and the NRA together have less "blood on their hands" then Obama. He has no problem killing babies, not a word from him about the violence in Chicago which both of these things show he hasn't much concern or care for the black community he claims to be so proud to be a part of. And it isn't the fault of the NRA or the Republican's if a nut somewhere goes on a shooting rampage. Try blaming the fact that there has been little to no support for those fighting for mental health issues. Probably because if the work on that the progressives would lose most of their voter base. You can't have much hold on reality and be a progressive. The unpatriotic people are those that would try to take away or limit our second amendment rights.

Really? Who was attacking the Joker's rights and liberties? You can remain a sheep if you want.
