  •  If the Good Guys hold on in this recall (3+ / 0-)

    I will find the whole series of events very encouraging for the prospects of sane gun safety finally taking hold in this nation.  Colorado may very well be taking the courageous first stand against the voices of intolerance and indifference that have for too long dominated this issue.  A domino may indeed fall tonight, I suspect it falls in a way that will surprise you.  Again, all Americans are made safer by these common sense solutions to gun violence that are being challenged today in Colorado, even you.

    •  Let me get this straight....... (0+ / 0-)

      You think recall elections of Democrats are good for Democrats?!?

      "I suspect it falls in a way that will surprise you"
      I don't think the recall elections will succeed; the recall supporters have been outspent 6-1.
      This is a message. And a powerful one.

      "all Americans are made safer"
      Banning objects from innocent people doesn't make anyone safer.
      But you do hit on an interesting point: Namely, that gun controllers support sacrificing liberty for perceived security.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

      •  Keeping guns out of the hands (3+ / 0-)

        of people with mental illness or of those with known violent tendancies is not sacrificing liberty of innocent people. It is simply protecting society from unnecessary risk. I suppose you want to give guns to blind folks and known sex offenders like they are now doing in Iowa? Give me a break.

        •  If you want background checks, then I suggest (0+ / 0-)

          you don't support banning objects from innocent people.

          If it wasn't for the AWB proposed on the national stage, and the mag ban in Colorado, the background check bill probably would have passed & there wouldn't be two recall elections today.

          Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
