    The meme has its fact wrong.

    1. It is 32 governors who will not let in refugees
    2. Proof is needed that it is those same Republicans that insist you cannot blame all good gun owners
    3. It is far more than one single terrorist that snuck into France.
    4. The country of Syria is wore torn and filled with terrorists so the issue is not just about what heppend in France.
    5. Even other Muslim countries will not let their own people in due to security concerns.

    So the meme is a lefitst talking point billboard devoid of any real facts.

    It was correct when posted. Now there are 32 hypocrites
    .
    Read the news. Who refuses to address the subject of gun control?

    How may?
    How many Americans have committed mass murder in the last ten years right here at home?


    And what country has been demanding regime change and encouraging the rebels?


    We say we live by a higher standard. Well, let's do it and start being honest with ourselves.

    You posted it 19 minutes ago. There have been 32
    Governors refusing them for several days now. So no it was not correct at the time you posted it.
    .


    Ok well, you are free to make unsubstantiated claims and lump everyone together. But it is obvious.



    Well if you want to go back and make a comparison over the last ten years I can do that. Just know that it increases the number of terrorists exponentially.




    Not sure what this has to do with this.




    Yes let's stop pretending that the bigger threat is Climate Change and start admitting that there is a real threat from the 70% of Syrian refugees who are young males.

    I'm kind of curious if my home state governor, Mark Dayton (Democrat) will try to block Syrian refugees from entering Minnesota. Back when Dayton was a US senator he got the nickname "Evacuatin' Dayton', because he was the sole US senator to evacuate his Senate office due to terrorist threats. He ran while 99 others stayed in their offices.

    As to the OP, it's the twisted logic that the left likes to use. Gun transactions are screened and regulated. I presume the Syrian refugees will be screened as well. Syrian refugees can be regulated to zero tolerance levels--don't let any of them in; citizens exercising their constitutional right to own guns may be regulated but not stopped--there's millions of gun owners already inside the U.S.

    The screening process is weak by some Senators admission because:

    1. Syria have been known to give out passports to any name requested
    2. There is no real background info on these refugees due to the lack of records kept in Syria

    Good thing for the refugees that the governors have no say so in whether or not refugees can be placed in their states.

    The courts have already ruled that the admission of immigrants – whether for humanitarian purposes, political asylum purposes, or pursuant to the quotas that we have – is strictly a federal function.

    This is nothing more than political posturing on the part of these governors.

    The news is that Congress has passed a block vote against the refugees or so I hear.
    Not only that there is the claim that they can override a presidential VETO if the senate cooperates.

    Why not a compromise!
    The president started his term(s) in office having won a Nobel Peace Prize.

    Barack Hussein Obama should prove he is a man of peace and wisdom by negotiating with King Salman of Saudi Arabia to allow America to use the 100,000 EMPTY A/C housing units (with kitchens and toilets) enough to house 3,000,000 million people as a triage area for vetting for the Muslim refugees.

    We would pay for the use of the units, supply the necessities of life for the refugees weeding out the radical elements. That would also benefit Saudi Arabia.

    In addition (assuming we had enough) we could send American soldiers of Muslim faith to help with the work though I don't think that is necessary, I have Catholic friends who have worked for years in Saudi.

    Oh? Good, the left is on the wrong side of both these issues again. It's simply ridiculous to equate gun rights with open borders - see, they want the former to be strictly regulation but massive waves of immigrants from terrorist nations to come here at 16k a pop. There's a Second Amendment they just can't get past.

    This really makes no sense. Why aren't we doing the same for folks from Belgium and France? Isn't this where the Paris attackers were from?
