Default Re: PA Gov. Rendell Wants Tough Gun Laws in Response to Cop Killings

Bottom line, your guns are safe for at least 4 more years.
The President sets the agenda. Congress enacts laws. Thats why the 2nd stated that the right shall not be abridged. The problem here is that the house, senate, and White House are occupied by left wing activists that are unified in their desire to disarm their constituents, and operate largely unopposed, save their armed constituency

We don't have the balance of a "two party" system because the stupid party abdicated to the dems. The only balance to the out of control federalies is an armed and seriously pissed off electorate. And hopefully 2010 will sent these marxist @#$#$#@#$#$ers back to their holes and leave bho alone in the White House until he's dispatched in 2012.
