    Where is "Repeal federal gun laws back to 1933"?

    I didn't see that listed as a choice.

    We really need to get a republican super majority in both houses in congress with a conservative republican president in the White House.

    Thats what it will take to eliminate PBS/NPR!

    The choices are BS. There should be an option to have less strict gun control laws.

    Congress should do the same thing about gun control as they should do about most other things: nothing.
