    H.R 45) well this is the first step to communism, looks real close to what happened in Nazi Germany and Russia. I believe the democratic party is trying to turn our awesome country into a socialistic country ie socialized medicine, taking away fire arms from law abiding citizens, next we wont be able to pray in public, Oh wait! we cant do that now anyway. Get ready for the door knocks and concentration camps.

    This guy is an idiot and should be immediatley removed from office. Why are there people like him there? I thought these people were supposed to work for us, the honest good American. Take my guns… I think not. I have rights and you may not infringe on them.

    Nice move sweetpea, trying to sneak this gun bill under the radar, the American people are not stupid and you will pay for your arrogance and elitist ways come election day.

  • GPD14 09/12/2009 5:59pm

    This bill is a down right waste of energy for anyone to author. Leave it up to this BOOB, who calls himself a representative, to try and sneak something through such as this garbage. Lets unarm the law abiding citizens of America, making them powerless to the criminals who steal, rape, murder, amongst other things in order to make money to buy drugs with. You know the productive people of society that I am speaking about. Typical namby pamby democrap BS!!Worthless pieces of dog crap. Hey BOOB,can I get a copy of this bill,I am low on toilet paper? You want my guns BOOBY Rush, come on over and try and take them from me!! Im waiting!

    Bobby Rush’s political career is OVER in 2010, if not before (RECALL is a possibility, Bobby!) Why, on God’s green earth, would you conceive of a bill to try and take the guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens? Oh, I know, you aren’t taking them away, you are just controlling them, and restricting their ownership. Our constitutional rights are well founded in stone. They will not be trampled on. The citizens of this country will take up arms against it’s government IF it tries to take guns away. We have learned the lessons of the past. Look towards what happened in all countries where gun control was enforced. That WILL NOT happen here. WILL NOT! So, prepare for a new career in 2010, because it will NOT be in politics. Withdraw your anti-gun bill, and maybe you might slip through for another term. But with this bill on the radar, you are doomed. HEAR THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE! IT IS A MIGHTY VOICE! HEED THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE! IT IS A MIGHTY VOICE!

    The fact that the details of this Bill are so outrageous it suggests an ulterior motive. This Bill will NEVER PASS, but it may pave the way for future nonsense. By its introduction it is wasting the time and money of our elected official who should be concentrating their efforts on getting guns out of the hands of the criminal element. We know that’s not easy, but that’s way you make the big bucks and get our votes.

    To quote Ted Nugent, “There are hundreds of millions of gun owners in this country, and not one of them will have an accident today. The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, bad parents, and undisciplined children. Period.”

    CONGRESSMAN,

    NOW THAT THE PEOPLES U.S.CONGRESS HAS DOCUMENTED OUR UNJUST AMERICAN JUDICIAL SYSTEM,HAVE YOU HEARD IF THE U.S. SUPREME COURT KNOWS WHERE AND WHEN WE CAN ALL WATCH THESE POSSIBLE WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS TAKE PLACE ?

    TROY DAVIS & MUMIA ABU ~JAMAL ~ ARE HAVING PRAYERS FOR JUSTICE SAID FOR THEM WORLD~WIDE ..WE CAN ALL ONLY HOPE AND PRAY THAT EVERYONE IN OUR U.S.CONGRESS THAT KNOWS AND UNDERSTANDS HOW UNJUST OUR U.S JUDICIAL SYSTEM CAN BE WITH OUR POORER AMERICANS,BECOMES ACTIVE IN MAKING SURE THAT TROY DAVIS OF GEORGIA AND MUMIA ABU~JAMAL OF PENNSYLVANIA RECEIVE FAIR AND JUST TRIALS BEFORE ANY POSSIBLE WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS TAKE PLACE.

    LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS IS A WWW VOLUNTEEER LOBBY THAT SINGS OUT FOR OUR MIDDLE~CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICANS. WE CAN BE FOUND WITH ANY SEARCH ENGINE BY OUR NAME OR TELEPHONE NUMBER.(424-247-2013)

    • MANY MORE IN OUR U.S. CONGRESS ARE NOW FINDNG OUT THE TRUTH OTHER THEN SENATOR WEBB AND THOSE OTHERS IN THE NOW… IN CONGRESS
  • voxsilvae 02/24/2010 11:28am

    I totally agree. Leave your post, Sir. This is not Russia. We are Americans and we believe in OUR FREEDOM. So many fought and died for that right. RESIGN your Seat.
    Do something for a change. Implement Death Penalty for those who commit murder, rape, etc. Put teeth in the laws we have now. Guns don’t kill; People DO. Put your time and effort to control crime by enforcing the laws we already have. More and more States need to implement DEATH. Wipe out all those criminals on death row. We could save millions of dollars instead of feeding and bordering those criminals. Its been proven that you can’t rehabilitate them. Put them to death NOW!
    When you do that, you put fear in those who may just be thinking of doing a crime. Put the word out that we are sick and tired of these criminals and you do a crime of killing, you will DIE immediately. No 10-20 years on Death row. Send them to their maker.

    Bobby Rush and 73 other Democrats sold you out to AT&T, Verizon and Comcast

    Bobby got paid $128,000 in campaign funds for his support of internet throttling. So when your service turns bad when downloading anything the ISP does not support (competition), thank Bobby.

    Dear Congressman Rush,

    h.r.5618 needs to be passed immediately. There are 15 million Americans who are “unemployed through no fault of their own,” and who are also frantically attempting to find new jobs that do not exist. The majority of these 15 million have a family dependent upon their income, so that increases the number to possibly 30 or even 45 million Americans who are in imminent danger of losing everything. When this happens, the financial and moral consequences for this country will be dire indeed. I’ll say it again—h.r.5618 needs to be passed immediately! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
