About Me

I have been on DU since 2006 under \"SteveM\" and later \"SteveW.\" Due to an account mix-up and a computer crash, I have \"rejoined\" as Eleanors38, but my history at DU includes the names cited.

A few days ago 8 were murdered by a criminal with a gun.

I saw one OP on this horrible act. This was a MASS MURDER. I would have supported an exception to the promiscuous GD gun ban topics for this. Even I. But where is the discussion????

As some have pointed out, people in DU seem to have more concern with a theater hatchet man and a theater shooter (2 dead), and can can readily cash in their frequent flyer miles for yet another rolling exception to the GD guns ban. More disturbing, however, is the rolling silence over this Mass Murder. It seems only some lives matter, esp. if they are more fairly complected, or there is a hush-hush of the killings because it didn't fit the proper image

Narratives® are.

Maybe this will get locked, but DU members, esp those who's bile and animos are famous, have some explaining to do. I also wonder if the hosts/mods in GD even noticed this tragedy.

The lower #s were used by known gun-control entities.

Perhaps even they knew that pushing for 18 and beyond was a little much?

When you are a 2A defender on DU, you rise to the challenge!

Hiw about working to improve the law, instead of large posting quantities?

If President Obama works for improving the NICS efficiency and response time, I'm all for it. But citing catch-phrases like "loop holes," and merely extending the time for approval to 5, 7, 10 days, or never, is a lazy approach and invites court challenges.

Caution fellow Pro2A DUers. The Hide forces are organized. Anything goes...

in the way of insult, denigration, smear, and untruths. You know the drill.

Jackpine Radical has passed. A reasonable defender of 2A....

This according to a post in GD.

I liked the insight he brought to discussions involving RKBA,as well as other topics.

How do you miss someone on the internet? Yet it happens.

As of tomorrow, Bernie is in the race!

Sounds like an winner to me, esp. on guns. He has a somewhat mixed record, FOR mag restrictions, was FOR AWB in ' 94, and FOR UBC (as I). Looks good on other gun votes, preferring states handling regulation. Weigh in with your opinion.

Cruz knows our bully culture. He knows it works.

Ain't much gonna be said about his unqualified status to be president. (Prediction)

His efforts to sign on with the Health Exchange is already fading from MSM view. (Observation)

The anti-Obama narrative, and the tough, strongman image Cruz has created for himself are cast, and WILL cow MSM and any remnant opposition into squealing complaints of hypocrisy emanating from obscure web sites and in LTTEs. To the far right, hypocrisy is sport, and irony is an overwrought subject in advanced lit & humanities classes. Cruz and the GOP know there is no opposition. The ball is in the court of the Right. Any discussion will be between the Right, the Far Right, and the crap-in-your-pants-and-go-to-heaven Right; everyone else is irrelevant as they assume their framed role as the bully's victims.

BTW, ANY complaints sourcing from any other branch other than the GOP, WILL be tagged as "the Left." And that tag will be promoted by much more than the GOP.

Are racial issues the way to get gun issues back into GD?

There are 2 GD threads today alone about guns (noting the volume & tenor of posts) that have race added, and have remained up in spite of GD'S SOP. Are there any other hybrids which allow for gun discussion here? I have a number of ones I would like to bring up.
