    First - It should be noted that Dana was just caught lying at CPAC about students "rushing" the stage at the Town Hall and yelling things like burn her. There were apparently a few videos that show nothing of the sort. But you know, she's back in her element at CPAC and is singing a very different tune.

    And then there's this. This is just so special, warm and tingly all over.

    So you saw a couple videos and that proves she was lying? Even though you weren’t there?

    Full of hate, anger and fear mongering. One would think think there would be a better way to sell guns.

    It gets harder and harder to tell who's a genuine fascist and who's just an idiot repeating fascist talking points.

    on the other hand fear sells guns, and that makes people money.

    Loesch is correct. When the Left loses on policy they turn their strategy to targeting the First (and Second) Amendment.

    Sounds like the ant-gun groups and their Twitter followers.

    You say anti-gun, we say pro-children not getting slaughtered.

    We are not anti gun anymore than we are anti life. We are pro gun control and pro choice.

    The only way one can't see the fear mongering and hate in this video is if they haven't actually watched it.

    For liberals, each school shooting tends to illustrate the logical consequences of choosing not to regulate the availability of such weapons.
    For the NRA, each school shooting tends to illustrate the depravity and decadence of a liberal society, and the only way to protect yourself against this insidious threat is to buy more guns.

    Policy will change. And it's silly to make this a partisan issue. Unless you're happy with Republicans doing nothing and having more blood on their hands.

    David Hogg is the better way to sell guns.

    Fine. But being anti Armalite Rifles is being anti gun.

    To be fair ignorance fear and mass shooters a far better way. Regardless of who opposes it, school shootings have always been a huge boon to the gun industry.

    Loesch & you believe she is correct. That is a view shared by the pro gun lobby that often choose to interpret the 2nd A to support their cause. Just as they choose how to interpret how the 'left' view policy, the 1st & 2nd A, and all other things. After all the right is all about helping those with mental issues, but strangely only when there is a mass shooting. Otherwise anything dealing with mental health issues will find itself quickly on the financial chopping block so money can be saved for those who least need the savings.

    If you're on the left it looks as those on the right such as Loesch & others tend to target & demonize another group when they lose on policy. With guns its the mentally ill, with money it's 'those poors' gaming the system that is a smaller part of the budget, and illegals for anything else.

    It's always a matter of perspective.

    You're an all or nothing kinda guy, eh? I love my pistol, but yes, I still want to ban assault rifles. I can be selective.

    Do you ever get tired of generalizing about "the left?" Is Trump part of "the left?" because he constantly targets the First Amendment by attacking the press and threatening to pull licenses and change libel laws. The NRA has been doing a fair amount of targeting themselves, trying to stifle debate following Parkland by calling people socialist who want to have stricter gun controls. And of course elements of "the right" are going on their usual lunatic binges by targeting the Parkland students themselves.

    Those elements on the Right going after the Parkland students are lunatics - agreed, and they’re irrelevant. Unfortunately the Left, after losing on policy go after the 1st and 2nd Amendments, are not fringe or irrelevant. They’re irrational and dangerous in my opinion. And this is coming from a pro-gun control guy.

    Some of are pro-choice period. Don't want an abortion, then don't get one. Don't want to own a gun then don't buy one.

    Not really. I’m good with the banning of fully autos and talks about banning bump stocks. But ARs don’t need to be banned at all. Because you have other semi automatic rifles that would need to follow suit. So I’m 100% against that. But like I asked someone else, why do you pride yourself with a pistol when those are the leading cause of death of a firearm vs an AR? It makes no sense.
