At Free Republic they're worried about about teddy bears on tiny coffins turning public opinion

To: RandallFlagg; Joe Brower; marktwain

Iím a north FL freeper transplanted from Kali, CCW since I got here a few years back. Try to stay active...

My guess is that the next phase is going to come and shockingly fast. Today already we have Obama weeping and choking up, and all flags at half-mast.

Next week will be 20 tiny tot coffins with precious teddy bears on top, and photos and home videos galore. It will be the most heart-wrenching show ever produced by the White House-Hollywood-MSM alliance.

A bill will be proposed. If itís not this one, it may be worse. But this at least. A total ban on magazines capable of holding more than ten cartridges. (Or, ten may be one over the limit, with ten-rounders banned.)

No buyback, no compensation, no grandfather, no sunset. Instant felon if youíre found with an eleven-round ďmassacre magazine.Ē This is how Hollywood/MSM will produce this episode over the next two weeks.

Christmas Eve, with all of the tiny tot funerals. The tears will pour like Niagara.

Only a few weak-kneed RINOs in the House need to roll over, and they will. This bill will pass like lightning, we may be shocked how fast.

I thought it would pass in the year after Gabby Giffords, but I was wrong. Letís see what happens now.

I hope Iím wrong, again.

33. No surprise, their political leaders want a lot of people to die in silence.

They voted for that.

They praise that.

They are that.

Or is it because they think they can defeat the US Army with their pantry-size arsenal?

19. I hate people who sneer and at empathy and compassion.

I've encountered that attitude in other contexts, and it's been more effective in alienating me from their cause than anything else I can think of.

Believe it or not, I was sort of neutral on the subject of gun control until today. Not really neutral, but it was a debate I mostly stayed out of because I was involved in too many others. Not any more!

23. Disgusting

I went to the Guardian UK today to see what the comments were, how other nations viewed us. I saw many comments that made me ashamed to be an American. That we are seen much like rabid dogs. But the comment quoted here really hit home and after reading the above is only too true. I don't know if the sickness can ever be cured.

"America is a pathology disguised as a nation."

43. That jumped out at me, too.

It's sometimes useful to summarize and characterize the other side's arguments. When I do it, though, I try to make sure not to help them state their case. This Freeper may have crossed that line, because a call to ban "massacre magazines" would get a lot of support. It would also make clear that sport hunters would be unaffected.

Question to be posed to Congressman Snerd (R-Craven) at his next town hall meeting: "Would you support a ban on massacre magazines?"

So that this moron can care? Does he really care only about his freedom to own a gun? What a pathetic excuse for a human being.

26. Down in Free Republic Lite, i.e., the Gungeon, they are just mad that anybody would DARE

discuss taking steps to lesson gun violence and mayhem in this country; owning an entire arsenal of assault rifles and high capacity magazine handguns was written right into the Bill of Rights, doncha know!!!

Their attitude basically alternates between self-pity at being so put-upon at DU to giving the rest of us on the site - the vast majority of us who support sensible gun control - the middle finger.

Indeed, their pro-NRA host has taken to locking OP's he doesn't like, using the fig-leaf cover of "the SOP" to do so.

No question about. The pro-gun nuts can take this shit to FreiRepublik for all I care.

That group has been permanently trashed from my account since the Aurora shooting which hits very close to home.

With the screenname Randall Flagg and a stockpile of automatic/semi automatic assault weapons that can't be a good mix. Flagg is a demonic character in Steven Kings The Stand who was out for blood, gore, and death. Gee wonder what that freeper intentions would be stock piling all of that artillery.

41. These people truly make me sick.

Connecticut needs prayers and comfort tonight. Instead, we have sickos worrying about their precious gun babies instead of the little kids that died today. Honestly, I am not even ready to worry about gun laws right now. I am worried about my state, I am wondering if we will start having police at every school in Connecticut, I am sad for the families today, I am not even sure if I want to substitute teach next week. And these idiots are worried about how many bullets they can have at one time.
