    I was just watching ABC nightly news. Headline stories were the blizzard in the central US, the last weekend of shopping and when you need to ship your gifts for them to arrive on time. Also discussed the fiscal cliff and Oblamer being on vacation and playing golf in Hawaii.

    It was over 8 minutes into the news before they mentioned the last 3 funerals were today and the NRA wanting to put armed guards in schools. It was about a 45 second blurb and then on to the other latest and greatest news.

    The pro gun side says that the anti's have a 30 to 45 day window before the next big news item comes along and the shooting and gun control is back page news.

    Give it another week of hot and heavy fiscal cliff news and the uproar of rising taxes and the gun debate will possibly be pushed to the back table.

    Maybe there will be an end to this madness sooner rather than later.

    I hope you're right, but we will still have a heck of a fight on our hands.

    That's what I've said all along. He wants to get this done while it's fresh on the people's minds. You're exactly right, another week or two and the gun issue starts fading away.....Hopefully. :up: :flag:

    They also had a 'Picture of the Week' of some ***** that works for 'em getting 'married' (*snort*) to some other hanger.

    Wife had it on. I snatched the remote out of her still bleeding hand and turned it to some game.

    geez.........censorship. HOMOSEXUAL if that is somehow better.

    funny thing .... maybe most will see this as second page news now but gun owners?

    I don't think we'll forget about the threat for a long time and will vote in elections and support the NRA accordingly

    Very true!! I've always been a Pro 2nd voter. Everyone votes on their issues and mine is gun rights.

    I refrain from making gay jokes as some of them get kinda anal about that stuff.

    They got what they wanted when they saw the caskets being carried out of the church, They'll get back to the fiscal cliff or some senator will get caught messing around with his boyfriend and they'll be all over that.

    Future leaders of this country and people wonder what's wrong. Put enough of these on front page news and kids think its normal. Makes me sick. What's that on the far left side? Sheman lol
