    Oh no!


    Support for gun control is slipping. It must be doomed if you use USA8888 math that he uses to prove FNC rating are doomed too.

  • usnretiredx2


    I would never want to be a Admiral, they are adime a dozen. There are more Admirals in the Navy than Master Chief Petty Officers. We train the Admirals and they will be the first to tell you that.

    Again, you have no clue, clueless from the get go.

  • Ratboy

    As a side note to the poll for ABC –

    Partisan divisions are 33-24-37 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.

    While recent polls have found the NRA to be popular overall with a majority of Americans, this survey finds a less positive assessment of the association’s leadership – more see it unfavorably than favorably by an 8-point margin, 44 versus 36 percent, although many don’t know enough to say.

    There’s a mixed result on the NRA’s influence on gun policy; on the one hand more, 38 percent, say it has too much influence versus too little (24 percent) or about the right amount (30 percent). At the same time, that makes a majority, netted, saying its influence is too little or about right.

    The NRA’s leadership, naturally, has far more support among people in gun-owning versus non-gun-owning households – a 52 percent versus 22 percent favorable rating. Similarly, 49 percent in non-gun households say the NRA has too much influence over gun laws. In gun households 27 percent, agree


    As noted, support for banning high-capacity magazines is at a new high in polling since 2011. But there’s no consistent change on other proposals. Support for background checks on gun show buyers is essentially the same as it was in the late 1990s; support for banning assault weapons is numerically up from its low in 2009 but still well below its levels in the mid- to late 1990s; and support for banning semi-automatic handguns has been essentially steady in recent years

  • Ratboy

    And here is a tidbit from the poll that navydude just posted

    According to the survey, 56% support a ban on semi-automatic guns, but that’s down from 62% in a CNN poll taken in the days after the shooting at Sandy Hook. The same is true for a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips – 62% in December, down to 58% now – as well as a requirement for all gun owners to register their firearms with the local government – 78% last month, down to 69% now.

    Now that dont sound like 80% or more to me!!

    say goodnight usa888

  • usnretiredx2

    Here is a survey that proves that USA8888 is blowing smoke up his own backside.


    What about gun control attitudes among these 4 groups? Consider first the standard survey question asking whether gun laws should be more strict, less strict, or unchanged.  A majority, 54 percent, of those who did not own a gun or belong to the NRA said “more strict.”  Interestingly, so did the plurality of those who did not own a gun but lived with a gun owner (40 percent).  But while most NRA members (54 percent) wanted to make gun laws less strict, only 25 percent of gun owners who were not NRA members felt this way.  The plurality of them (45 percent) wanted no change; 25 percent even supported stricter laws.

    Survey was from Dec 23, 2012, right after.

    Could all of these be the reason that usa888 didnt offer proof when asked? But, but, But, he said FACT! I dont understand? :twisted:

    say good night John Boy! :lol:

  • usa8888

    The American people are in favor of much tighter gun regs, all surveys indicate. It’s a landslide for gun control and most think the two bozos in charge of the NRA should resign. The vast majority of people favor bans on high capacity magazines, tight background checks on everyone, and banning assault type weapons. It’s just common sense except to right wingers, who probably believe in creationsism but not in evolution….

    USN–I have heard that petty officers train admirals–not true.
    signed, Rear Admiral USA8888

  • usnretiredx2


    If you are a Rear Admiral then you can tell me,

    1. Are you a L or a U

    2. What makes a Navy E7 different than any other service E7

  • Ratboy

    And now he is telling a lifer Navy guy what is true and false in the navy!!!

    yep usa888 is………………….”Special”

  • Ratboy

    Oh I believe he is a “REAR” something or another!!! :shock:

  • usnretiredx2


    No, for number 2 he will give me something like the following

    Although the pay grades of E-7 through E-9 are equivalent to those of other services, the Navy is unique in that it confers much more authority and responsibility on the Chief, while demanding more performance and results than any of the other services.  Advancement into the CPO grades is the most significant promotion within the enlisted Naval ranks. 

    But if he was a true Zero, he / she / it would know what I was referencing.

  • Hillbilly

    The definition of an assault weapon in 1994. You can ban 22 caliber rifles under this definition. :???:

    That law, according to Mike Cooper on PolicyMic.com, defined an assault weapon as “any semiautomatic rifle with a detachable magazine and at least two of the following five items: a folding or telescopic stock; a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon; a bayonet mount; a flash suppressor or threaded barrel (a barrel that can accommodate a flash suppressor); or a grenade launcher.”

    @rat I will also support the right to bear arms. Because we all have the right to protect our family the way we feel best. I taught my children to shoot also. My daughter has been in a number of competitions.

    I got into Schutzhund twenty years ago. Two of my dogs are used by the local police to do drug checks and all three do search and rescue. Being service dogs I can take them anywhere. Right now, in the area I live and with my dogs, I don’t feel like I need a hand gun. But if my neighborhood changes, and I moved somewhere else I want the right to have my gun at home. I still have all of my guns, I just only keep one at my home.
    On 9/11/2001, I did go to my gun club and bring all of my guns home for about a month.

  • Hillbilly

    Matthew – I don’t know if it’s because you’re just that stupid, or I’m just that bad at communicating, but either way, it’s really just tedious, depressing parody at this point. Enough. Godspeed, Hillbilly.


    :( Poor Matthew. The wheels are coming off the doom & gloom predictions of the doomer’s & he can’t spin it away. I posted the Link yesterday that even James Hansen says no warming in the last decade.You are the only one trying to deny the lull/cooling. I’ll type real slow..you ready? Once again the models got it wrong!

    For three days now you have been using the baseline & long term trends to say no cooling has happened. You don’t have to go down to the baseline to achieve cooling! I have never said it was cooler than 5, 10, 15, years ago. The Met Office revised down their predictions for the amount of warming to occur in 2012 – 2017. IF it comes true it will be cooler than their previous prediction. Get it?

    You are in a room that is 70 degrees. You put on a pot of water & heat it until it boils. You then remove the heat source – take the pot off the stove. Five minutes later the water is cooler than it was five minutes before. The cooling phase has to start before the baseline of 70 degrees can be reached. Get it? Using your logic the water doesn’t cool until it reaches 70 degrees. Its just gets less warmer.

    Has the global temp cooled since 2010? I’ll give you some help. Some sources say 2010 was the warmest year on record. 2011 was the 7th warmest & 2012 9th (RSS has it 13th) warmest on record. You will say (as you have been) if your consistent that no it hasn’t cooled, its just less warmer.

    One more example. My doc says i should weigh 200lbs. I weigh 300lbs. One month later i weigh 270lbs…did i lose weight? Using your logic no..i just weigh less.

    cathy – I got into Schutzhund twenty years ago. Two of my dogs are used by the local police to do drug checks and all three do search and rescue.


    I have 2 pit bulls on acid guarding my property. If they get past them i own guns too. :grin:

  • Hillbilly

    d.d. – It’s going to be so quiet after the birthday party blast we went to yesterday for my husband & dog aren’t much fun.


    You can wash hubby’s balls & teach the dog a new trick. :)


  • d.d.

    @d.d.my husband & dog aren’t much fun.

    @H.B. You can wash hubby’s balls & teach the dog a new trick.

    H.B., Thanks a heap !


    Another title for Chicago.

    Orkin has announced its top 50 bed bug cities for 2012. Detroit & Chicago are tied for 1st place.

    Your post

    ” PolicyMic.com, defined an assault weapon as “any semiautomatic rifle with a detachable magazine and at least two of the following five items: a folding or telescopic stock; a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon; a bayonet mount; a flash suppressor or threaded barrel (a barrel that can accommodate a flash suppressor); or a grenade launcher.”

    Is the Webster’s definition. Since we (USA) stopped using M1s in Nam no assault rifle had just Simi. Only our handguns fall into that class. Unless it is a sniper rifle which is not used for assaults, they will be switch ed from Simi, burst, full auto. Full auto is the killing machine and requires no thought, pull the trigger and sweep. Simi requires to aim, pull, aim, pull.

    Now unless you rifle has a bolt action, which a majority do not fit the Simi auto. The big difference is the items you listed like a pistol grip, magazines (again majority have these), ect… The bad guys use the military looking version because of the threat appeal.

    The main problem I have with the government spending billions on global warming research is this;

    I first flew from Chicago to Detroit in 1975. Only a blind person can’t see the dark smog and dirty water that surrounded Gary, IN. Over the years we can see how nature cleans itself up when we decrease pollution. Everyone will agree that men has an impact on the earth. We have to have checks and balances. The whole world needs checks and balances not just the U.S.

    In 2007 China surpassed the U.S. in pollution. Japan’s pollution is worse then U.S. When you look at products produced every country pollutes more then the U.S. We can’t save the world by only limiting U.S. pollution. Every country needs to get on board. Instead of spending money on during global warming research. We only need the U.S. studies from the 80′ and
    90′ to prove to other countries they need to decrease their pollution. We can even show them how to do it.

    Let’s focus on bringing the other countries up to the U.S. standard first.

    Somebody was comparing MCNBC with Fox. Take a look at the emotions that come out of Ed north Dakota schultz,he use to cuss the umpires, football refs when his boy played sports. He was asked to leave many times. His son probably wanted to crawl in a hole. How he verbally abused his wife Maureen Zimmerman,they both were on local news and sports in Fargo. Everbody in Fargo/Moorhead have a opinion on Ed. Then take Hannity, can you picture him doing that. This is just 1 example. I feel dirty after watching Lawerence, Chris M. and the othe. When I watch the folks on Fox I feel refreshed,blessed, and encouraged. What a Contrast
