      We have several that only post in gun threads and diaries. They get banned and come back under another name.

      Explain.(1+ / 27-)

      Why not an armed secretary?  Or an armed principal?  Or even an armed kid?

        in TWO threads on the Daily Kos...only two threads, my friend. Exhibit some patience - perhaps engage in dialogue with someone with whom you disagree - perhaps we find points of common ground. Perhaps not, perhaps you only learn WHY those with whom you disagree think the way they do.

        Or, contribute to the polarization which divides us by recommending banning those with whom you disagree, etc. That's helpful to reasoned debate in a republic (/sarc).

      within the greater context of returning America to a Constitutional Republic, vice the oligarchy sliding toward totalitarianism which is its current state.

      I am new here and gun control is dominating the news - give me time and I will expand my topics of interest.

          a Republic (in which sovereign people - you know, those pesky "We, the People", folks) have access to actual facts via a free press (vice one in which 90% of the media is controlled by 6 corporations in turn controlled by less than 400 individuals) which prints factual information (vice propaganda - see: http://thomas.loc.gov/... ) and have free and fair elections to select folks who will represent them vice the same 400 individuals who currently control both major parties and the aforementioned 90% of media.

          In so doing, the people spell out what the government CANNOT do to them via a written constitution which a judiciary interprets in accordance with how it was written and adopted by those same "We, the People", not in accordance with how these unelected justices think IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN written (as they are selected from and by the same oligarchy which controls the media, the government including the judiciary).
