Klook, believe anything you want, I just voiced my opinion. Nothing is going to bring even one of those children back & the reality is nothing is going to be 100% in stopping it from ever happening again nut if I could do anything that may help I would even if it meant giving up my dream of someday being able to fire a fully auto weapon.
If you feel the need of that extension is worth everything to you then have at it, I believe the military is & has been looking for a few good men, I tried during the first Gulf War & was very nicely told in a polite way that I'm too damn old & I haven't gotten any younger, don't know your age but get it while you can.
As you pointed out Obama could have simply issued an EO banning assault weapons, he's a lame duck. Instead because of this he is trying to give both sides of the issue a chance of coming up with some sort of solution. Then on the other hand the sales of guns didn't increase to the same degree with his re-election as they did with his first, same with NRA membership there are more gun retailers than there are McDonald's & Supermarkets combined (just heard that one) kind of hard to believe at first but who stands to make money if there was anything to a conspiracy theory which I don't believe there is.
Sam, Sam! Earth to Sam! I included you in my thoughts because you back the Liberal Messiah at every turn. Then you go off on some rambling rant abut full auto's and dreams and whatever! Off your meds? liquor store open early today? Its 5 o'clock somewhere.
No one is bringing them back or the literally millions and millions that have been killed by their GOVERNMENTS. My comments were general not about YOU!
sam, if the government were to just ban guns for no reason they would have little or no support, but if there are events that could influence the public then there will be more support for a gun ban.
The above comment that it is easier to create conditions to herd the sheep then having to kill a bunch of your livestock is correct. The statistics are clear, there is no increase in mass murders or crime, in fact, it has decreased. The media will not report it that way. And do you think the powers that be(In and out of Gov.) aren't aware of the real statistics? They clearly have an agenda. I will leave it up to you to enlighten us as to what your sides agenda is.
Hint: It ain't peace on earth and goodwill towards man.
