    Jesse Jackson is pushing a coordinated attack against the gun manufacturers akin to the war on cigarettes with a massive payout to the states based on murder victims etc. At least its a new angle and a wonderful attempt to make gun violence a criminal-less crime

      right, the same Jesse Jackson who has nothing EVER to say about the crime statistics in Chicago and how much they reflect black-on-black crime.

      The only ‘leaders’ worse than the politicians are those self-appointed leaders of the black community.

    This is excellent and very impressive that Congresswoman Esty is at the table in this,her 1st term.

      stacking the deck is nothing new but still a little surprising to see such a rookie. They must have decided they can own her with the least effort

    If the Democrats in Congress/Administration had 1% of the passion for our budget woes as they do for social causes like gun control our fiscal problems would be over.

    In the words of Godfather Rahm Emanuel, never let a crisis go to waste (when it comes to advancing liberal ideology).

    Meanwhile, in the urban wastelands of our great society, people will continue to get shot with reckless abandon. But then again, who cares about them- their Democrat votes have long been sewn up, right?

    SOME INTERESTING QUOTES/STORIES:

    ****If guns kill people, then…..

    —pencils miss spel words.
    —cars make people drive drunk.
    —spoons made Rosie O’Donnell fat.

    ****I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house? I said I did. She said, “Well I certainly hope it isn’t loaded!” To which I said, “Of course it is loaded; it can’t work without bullets!” She then asked, “Are you that afraid of someone evil coming into your house?” My reply was, “No, not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they are all loaded too.”

    ****On his inauguration, President Obama will be protected by the Secret Service, 11,500 soldiers and 4,000 police officers. They have armor and automatic weapons. NO ONE IS ASSIGNED TO PROTECT MY FAMILY.

    ****Gun control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

    ****April 19, 1775: An English attempt to confiscate guns from Americans triggered a successful revolution. Dear Congress: Is that a hint?

    ****”Gun owners are compensating for something.” Yes, I am compensating for being smaller and weaker than most violent criminals.

    ****The experts agree: Gun control works! Experts polled include Hitler, Castro, Qaddafi, Stalin, Idi Amin, Mao Tse-tung, Pol Pot, Kim Jong-il.

      incorrect Mike. Your cherry-picking doesn’t work even here.

      Eric Holder and his accomplices killed people in the Fast and Furious debacle, along with those who pulled the triggers
