Larry Pratt, executive director of a terrorist group called Gun Owners of America. I was watching Hardball with Chris Matthews the other day and he had this emotional midget on as a guest. His argument for not having background checks on gun purchasers was, "They're going to get access to firearms anyway, so why bother." That, and the fact that if you do background checks the government will have information about you. I'm pretty sure the government has all the information they could possibly use already. They have your Social Security number, and they have your drivers license number. They have your tax returns, and for all men, they have you in the Selective Service records. They even have your birth certificate, although I know a lot of the gun nuts don't believe in them.
I truly believe that the folks who want their guns so badly that they'd sacrifice thousands of innocent lives, are emotionally retarded. They are stuck in a fifteen year old child's mindset. I have my toys. I want my toys. You can't take my toys. The fact is we can take their toys, at least the most lethal toys from the most criminal and most insane. The problem is the politicians. They are either too spineless, or they are being paid off. I'm not sure which. I just know that the only thing lower than a pro gun politician, is a mouthpiece for the gun lobby who will say anything to keep gun manufacturers profits going up.
