I have been listening to Thom about 4 days a week on Sirius since 2010. I get that a big part of it is the host dissecting the other side, which he does brilliantly, but it hit me the other day what should be done more.

Yesterday, we heard from a woman who felt that, when voting, all Americans should present photo I.d. without complaint but buying over one thousand rounds of ammo online at a time was an inconvenience bridge too far and any law requiring a cut off at one thousand bullets per purchase in a unverifiable manner was a heinous, unconstitutional attack on her right to aspirate vaporized lead particles all day while "sport shooting".

I would have a victim of a gun crime waiting and listening on the other line and after the gun advocate is allowed to get her point across, I would throw it to the victim guest and in this last case, ask her if the online, unverified limitation of one thousand bullets at a time is a reasonable law.

I have never heard of this type of segment and it can be done in a fair and effective way where the gun guest doesn't have the right to be upset if the host is really good and Thom is the master.

I just want the gun guest to go home and think about how actually unreasonable their points are and I know if it is done correctly that isn't asking too much.

You could gather together all the parents of all the children murdered at Sandyhook and ask them as a group or one at a time "What gun law, either currently on the books or being proposed, could or would have stopped that massacre?"

Short answer: NONE.

This is about anybody can go online and purchase 1000s of rounds of ammo without showing I.d.

You are f ing idiot.

The law is about capping one thousand rounds of ammo per purchase on the internet only and you still would not have to show I.d..

I think you are so stupid I have to spell it out at a 2nd grade level because you didnt read what I wrote and said Sandyhook.

Going online and being able to anonymously purchase an unlimited amount of ammunition without showing any kind of I.d. is crazy.

It is people like you who get people killed. Sandyhook was a massacre with a gun, not a hot dog, gokart, golf club, or frisbee dumbass. Sorry massacres are gun only events and you dont like it but it is a reality.

You could also gather all the redneck idiot gun lovers who at some point in time killed their wife or friend in a fit of rage and the infield at the Indy 500 would not be big enough to hold all of the now incarcerated former "responsible" gun owners sitting in orange jumpsuits and dating their black gang member cell mate.

One of my favorite gun advocates who proudly ate, breathed, and slept guns was the Tea Party Minuteman from Arizona who murdered his entire family including teenage daughters and then swallowed a shotgun himself. He didn't like gun laws, either.

He was an excellent 2nd Amendment role model who proudly lived and died by the gun. Wow, he must be in some type of gun Valhalla feasting with other dead rednecks.

J.T. Ready was his name and I forgot, but the responsible gun owner executed a 15 month baby in cold blood with a semi-auto AR-15 assault rifle. (In combat, semi-auto is almost exclusively used when engaging the enemy and is the most accurate mode of firing an assault rifle like an AR-15)

This man was outspoken against even the most reasonable gun laws.

You know what victim if a gun crime who would be great to have on if you could get him but too bad he's is deceased? Former Republican President Ronald Reagan. He was shot by a crazy who secured an easily concealed handgun.

You tend to like to listen to yourself talk.

Prison for Miscarriages?

Thom plus logo Mike Pence's and the GOP's war on women took a sinister turn this week when Planned Parenthood was forced to abandon Title X funding; they can no longer get payment for serving low income women for cancer screenings and STD treatments.
