Gun Sales Increase After CT Shooting

More: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2012/12/17/gun-sales-brisk-connecticut-shooting/1775707/

Although national firearms sales and data on FBI background checks are not immediately available for the days before and after the second-largest school shooting in U.S. history, there is evidence that firearms sales are moving at a brisk pace.

Some gun dealers in Oregon, Virginia and Texas said Monday that stocks of handguns and shotguns were selling quickly.

"Our sales are astronomical,'' said Karl Durkheimer, owner of Northwest Armory in Portland, Ore. "We have customers coming in who are very worried for their personal safety. There is no question that sales are related'' to Friday's shooting, which left 28 dead including the 20-year-old shooter and his mother, and last week's deadly shooting at a Portland-area shopping mall.

If your NFL team was eliminated from playoff contention, would you root for or against them?

Would you root for them so that their season won't look so embarrassing, or against them so they can get a better draft pick for next season?

Where do you consider yourself on the political spectrum?

Do you like stadiums/arenas being named after corporations and businesses? Why/why not?

Personally I'm not crazy about the idea of stadiums and arenas being named after them. What happened to the time when more stadiums were named after teams or areas such as Candlestick Park, Tiger Stadium, Cleveland Stadium, Ebbets Field, and Chicago Stadium? Today we have mostly names like O.co Coliseum, Citi Field, Wells Fargo Arena, HP Pavillion, Busch Stadium, Staples Center, Target Field, and Safeco Field.

The GOP's Definition Of The Word "Liberty"

noun. The state of being free to watch millionaires hoard money, to make it more inconvenient for low-income people to vote, to eat spoiled food, to trick paranoid gun owners into buying more merchandise, to inhale polluted air and drink contaminated water, to use a major news network as an arm of your party, to close down public schools, to have Christian principles shoved down the throats of non-Christians, to deny gays the right to marry, to pay workers less, to intrude into what a woman does with her vagina, to drive on roads full of potholes and bridges that are about to collapse, and to start wars.

Ex. 2012 was a disappointing year for liberty, as President Obama was re-elected and the Republican Party lost seats in both Houses of Congress.

I Have An Offer For America's High-Rollers

If you can't endure the suffering of a modest tax increase, I'll be more than happy to trade places with you and accept the challenge of making seven figures. If I made $50M per year, they could even tax me at a 94% rate like during FDR and I could care less.

Should it be against the law for news networks to lie?

For anyone old enough to remember, how did Reagan do as CA governor and as president?

I want to get some comments here and know more about this GOP legend. From all that I heard about him so far with regards to his "welfare queen" myth and his trickle-down myth, he sounded like a scumbag and a con-man.
