    It kills Americans when they hear you righties refer to the Democrats as left wing. America has one very right wing party, the Republicans, and one moderately right wing party, the Democrats.

    Has Obama banned guns, banned capital punishment, banned private enterprise/pension/healthcare/schools? Has he stopped the drone strikes? Has he closed Gitmo? Did he let Bin Laden run free? His crime apparently is giving healthcare to a few million Americans who would otherwise die because they don’t have health insurance.

    Or could it be that you’re one of these demented loons so blinded by hatred of his colour that it’s easier just to say “he’s a communist” when the reality makes you look insane.

    Its shallow and implistic to describe the Democrats as a `moderate right wing party` when it is clear that their sentiments are truly left wing. Obama may not have succeeded in turning America into a social democratic state, but he is trying hard. It would be impossible for him to impose socialism immediately much as he would like to do so.

    Gun Safety Enthusiast says:

    This is very good development, and exactly what is needed.

    Encouragement of gun safety is the key to a safely regulated militia.

    In particular: Keep the finger out of the guard until you intend to make the shot, always check the chamber is clear, use the safety and always be aware of where you are pointing the barrel.

    Further: Use of trigger guards, why bolt action rifles are a preferred choice, and the logic of storing clips / magazines separate from firearm and ammo in the home is a good idea.

    Awareness of situations where firearms may not be appropriate to have available: Ie. in an environment where emotionally disturbed people can gain access, including yourself, particularly if going through domestic disputes or messy divorces, is worth a mention.

    Best bit of news on this issue thus far. This is what the NRA are there for.

    Yep! That’s what we need! 5 year olds killing each other over video games and candy.

    Authorities in Jackson, Mississippi have reported that an 11-year-old boy accidentally killed his 9-year-old brother with a shotgun after the two argued about a video game. Apparently, Darrious Finley, the younger boy, beat his brother De-Andre at a game. De-Andre got angry enough to grab a shotgun. The two struggled, and a single blast to the chest ended the life of the 9 year-old.

    Gun Safety Enthusiast says:

    Re-read what was written, and what the NRA are talking about.

    No one is advocating this type of outcome, rather they are talking about impressing a safety first approach to firearms to avoid it. Long overdue.

    In the Mississippi case you cite: How did the child get access to the firearm and ammunition ? Why was the weapon left in a state where it could be fired – ie. clearly no trigger lock ? Is it really a responsible action for the owner to keep a weapon in a home environment where there are young children ? Did the child fully understand the consequences of the action he took ?

    The licensed owner is responsible here.

    The situation you mention is a good example of where not paying attention to basic safety or responsibility will lead, which supports the NRA proposal.

    Gun Safety Enthusiast says:

    Many movies do project a very irresponsible approach to firearms, and rarely show the real life consequence of action. The movies are fiction, but have an impact.

    Next time you watch one featuring lots of firearm action:

    Cross check the number of rounds fired with what the weapon could hold – They always seem to have infinite ammo.

    Note how no one gets burnt when they pick up a weapon by the barrel after it has been fired repeatedly, or they shove it down their trousers. Similarly, no ones hearing is impaired at discharge time, there does not appear to be any recoil, and when firing semi-automatic pistols which eject the casing out the top and to the side, these casings never appear, or ever get blocked by the actors causing burns etc.

    Keep an eye on where the trigger finger is, and where the barrel is pointed.

    You never see the bit after where the cops haul the shooter to the station, process him, give him a good shoeing, put them through the court system, let them rot in jail for a bit, before they maybe get back on the street homeless.

    The Die Hard and Terminator films do not demonstrate good safety, and if you look carefully many other movies closely the same is true. The movies are a fiction.

    Gun Safety Enthusiast says:

    If a firearm is pointed at another person, there is only one reason for doing this: To Kill.

    Irrespective of how a round is discharged (misfires do occur) : If you are pointing a firearm at someone, you are intending to kill them: Irrespective of it is loaded or safe.

    That is a difficult concept to get across, and is the cardinal rule of firearms responsibility and safety.

    is this true,
    Agenda 21 designed a global movement, coordinated through a global to local action plan to create world government in accordance with certain objectives. Let’s look at some of its key policy objectives:
    populations to be concentrated in cities
    an end to national sovereignty
    the abolition of private property
    the restructuring of the family unit and increasing limitations on mobility and individual opportunity
    Now, consider the policies coming out of our own government:
    the systematic destruction of our farming industry
    an end to national sovereignty European and UN “laws” applied at the local level – the “Big Society”
    private property and assets stripped away through economic hardship and crippling taxes
    children stolen by the state and pushed into a multi billion pound care system
    0-19 education programmes (schools opening longer, no parental influence)
    crippling public transport costs and soon to be imposed road charging
    So while the term “Agenda 21” has been dropped, the policies it represented absolutely have not. They have simply been transformed into the Big Society and the Millennium Development Goals. The agenda remains, and at its heart is the drive for world government.

Mine was one of the jobs that got outsourced. Thanks, Labour.

    “a betrayal that the labour party will never recover from” – I will certainly never forgive them.

    danger to the world:

    Dr John Sentamu described the reductions already announced as “savage” and warned that reducing the size of the regular Army and filling the gap with reservists could imperil the “safety of the nation and the peace of the world”.
    He said it was simply not possible to replace highly trained full-time forces with “part-timers”

    Dr Sentamu, who has close links with the Yorkshire Regiment which lost 10 soldiers in Afghanistan this year alone, also described British forces as the “the bravest of the brave”.
    since when was a man of peace supposed to promote war?

    It was skill in making metal tubes, which is what gun barrels are basically. Just make them out of thinner metal, and you begin to have the makings of a bicycle, which is what BSA made before they moved on to motorcycles.

    There’s a similar linkage of metal tube manufacture in Yamaha: brass band instruments led on to motorbikes. That’s why the company’s logo is three tuning forks.

    Seeing as how his father’s parents were of the Hebrew persuasion, that’s not out of the realm of possibility. “Kerry” is a made-up name, to fit in as genteel lace-curtain I*rish-American, on the part of his grandfather. (This was satirised in the film, The MatchMaker, about a Senator visiting I*reland to see his (fictitious) ancestral home.) And it worked, at least to the point where Kerry’s father was able to marry into the Forbes family, an old-guard Mayflower family far wealthier than the Kerrys. (The Malcolm/Steve Forbeses are much more recent arrivals.) His middle name being Forbes, he ran for office in Massachusetts as “John F. Kerry”– ugghhh, pul-leeeez!

    A Yank notes: In the early days of our republic, the Secretary of State was often a future President: Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, JQ Adams, Van Buren, and Buchanan were all former SoSs. Presidential contenders often held the office: ex-nominees Clay, Cass, Blaine, Bryan, and Hughes.

    But since Hughes (1921-1925), the only SoSs with any “Presidential” aspect have been Muskie (1980-1981; ex-VP candidate, failed nomination contender), and Clinton (2009-2013?; failed nomination contender).

    So the nomination of Kerry to SoS has plenty of precedent, just not much recent precedent.

    I suspect that many/most of us on here, were brought up on Tom and Jerry cartoons and the cool foxy dude who always managed to blow himself up and fall off the top of very tall mountains when his Acme special pack didn’t quite work out as intended. Even Laurel and Hardy films contained violence in the form of clumsy mishaps with ladders and cars falling apart etc.

    Those films were full of violence, but I doubt any of us went out after Saturday morning pictures and beat up the nearest greengrocer. We just took them for what they were – amusing entertainment.

    It was only when the wet bearded loonies decided that such films might just possibly be adversely affecting kids’ minds that all this nonsense started. I doubt anyone was so affected by what they had seen in those movies – which goes some way to explaining why they remain so popular today.

    So what changed? Do today’s video games really have a deleterious affect on young minds? Or is it rather that pissed off kids now have too easy access to dangerous weapons?

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
