About Me

Godless democratic socialist, look towards northern Europe for inspiration on what role-models our economy should aspire towards. Love the ACLU and donate heavily to them each year, wish they'd get with the program and defend the Second Amendment with as much fervor as they do the rest of the Bill of Rights. Proud member of the 99%.

Vatican Sides With Obama on Gun Control

The Vatican praised President Barack Obama's proposals for curbing gun violence on Saturday, saying they are a "step in a right direction."

Vatican's chief spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi, in an editorial said that 47 religious leaders have appealed to members of the U.S. Congress "to limit firearms that are making society pay an unacceptable price in terms of massacres and senseless deaths."

"I am with them," Lombardi declared, lining up the Vatican's moral support in favor of firearm limits.

Maybe they should worry about protecting little boys first.

Democratic Senator: White House Gun-Control Plans 'Way in Extreme'

(CNSNews.com) - Newly elected Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota said on ABC News' "This Week" today that the gun-control proposals under consideration in the Obama White House are "way in extreme" and are "not going to pass" in Congress.

Host George Stephanopoulos asked Sen. Heitkamp: "Are you willing to sign on to some of the reforms that Vice President Biden and President Obama are already talking about?"

"You know, it's unclear," Heitkamp said. "I mean, you read Washington Post stories and you listen to what the administration says, and so I think what we need to do is we need to take a look at what happened at Sandy Hook. When I was attorney general, I was tasked with a national task force on school violence. We made a number of recommendations which, in fact, were adopted at Sandy Hook to help keep schools safer. They weren't adequate.

"Let's start addressing the problem," said Heitkamp. "And to me, one of the issues that I think screams out of this is the issue of mental health and the care for the mentally ill in our country, especially the dangerously mentally ill. And so we need to have a broad discussion before we start talking about gun control."

Uh oh... cue the torches and pitch-forks!!



Should be no surprise, but many rural Dems aren't on-board with new gun controls at all. And nothing is getting through Congress without them.

Looks like we'll have to look for other ways to deal with the violence instead...

I'm Kind of Enjoying All the Gun Threads in GD...

Seems like we're getting a lot more thoughtful discussion and reflection on this issue, less of the hard-core ideologues and trolls on both sides refusing to budge like most of those who dare venture into the Gungeon, already dead-set in their ways.

Maybe we should close the Gungeon once and for all and just let it all hang out in GD for good.
