    Didn't take much for Obama to jump on the gun control bandwagon, did it? I wonder if anyone really thinks another "assault weapons" ban is going to be more effective than the last one? I imagine ammo and magazine prices are going to skyrocket again :/

    His buddy Rahm said never let a crisis go to waste, or something to that effect.

    Where have you been? This already happened. Obama is the best gun salesman in history. I'll bet you the NRA contributed to his reelection campaign, even if it was done in stealth mode.

    Hey Sasquatch, those planes and tanks that Obama gave to Egypt.


    Did he give them for free or are they paying for them in some way?

    So, you embrace your own stupidity.

    No, but I will endure yours, if necessary.

    He may be on the bandwagon, but he hasn't actually done anything that would create gun control. Obama has done nothing. No harm, no foul.

    "Instability in Egypt, where a newly-elected Islamic government teeters over an angry population, isn't enough to stop the U.S. from sending more than 20 F-16 fighter jets, as part of a $1 billion foreign aid package.

    The interests of the donor is the basis of all foreign aid.

    The part of that 1 billion that pays for the jets, goes to US companies and workers that make the jets, not to Egypt for its own use.

    It keeps Egypt in the US' pocket for military equipment and maintenance. Morsi is dependent on the Egyptian military and the Egyptian military is dependent on the US.

    This is a useless exercise. Guns are so much a part of life in America that few people give it a 2nd thought, no matter how many killings there are.
