Here’s a joke for you: A war criminal, a compulsive liar, and a thief walk into the White House
If Eric Holder worked for a Republican president, you’d never hear the end of his wretchedness. Fortunately for him however, his buddies in the mass media are all on his “side”.
The cretin should be imprisoned.
It’s not even the end of the first year of his second term and Obama’s administration has gotten in quite some nasty messes

Criminals we can believe in.
A parent being so monumentally stupid that they allow their child to handle firearms in an unsafe manner removed from their supervision is not a gun control issue. It is an issue of personal responsibility, and should be handled with the utmost severity, if a parent is so negligent that their own child suffers a fatal accident they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent. It’s not up to the state to decide whether or not a gun should be in the home, but it’s up to the parents and the owners of those firearms to keep them safe and secure. I was trained on firearms when I was only around eight years old, but the way I was taught was to be incredibly safety conscious and the people who taught me made very sure I did not handle them outside of their supervision. Boy Scout summer camps have shooting ranges all over the country teaching shooting with rifles and shotguns to children as young as 12, but because they’re properly supervised, accidents are rare. You can’t make stupid illegal, no matter how much you may want to.
Please tell me, what amount of gun control would prevent an irresponsible parent from being negligent and irresponsible, leading to their child having a fatal accident? Please tell me how you plan to legislate personal responsibility.
The Second Amendment (as anti-gun politicians see it)
The feeling of safety, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of hunters to keep and bear arms for the purpose of shooting deer, shall be infringed reasonably on the basis of need and the will of the majority.
My favorite is when people try to compare guns to gay marriage.
Well what if you don’t support restricting either? The argument hinges upon the presumption that all gun rights supporters are your typical white male spouting off the Republican party line.
To those spending hundreds of dollars on guns and the costs of learning to use them/practice all in the name of “safety”, I wonder: do you have CPR training? Have you studied martial arts? Lifeguard training? There is probably a long list of things you could exhaust your bank account(s) with to learn invaluable safety skills to protect you and those close to you that don’t involve guns and likely prove more useful statistically, and yet the first impulse is to grab for a cowardly machine to do the protecting for you..? Maybe I’m missing something.
Hey, I found a picture of you.
To OP, I actually do know CPR and I have taken lifeguard classes in the past. I know most basic first aid as well as how to survive in abnormal situations. Carrying a gun is just another safety precaution, don’t assume those who carry a gun do so as a replacement for other skills.
