      That's right,come get them,I will be with a death grip with guns in hand!!!;)

  • PMDavis

    Number 6 says it all. Gun control is not about guns, it's about the government trying to get control of everything and everyone by taking the only way we have of defending ourselves. If the government can take our guns, they can take everything else because we can't do anything to stop them. That's their whole agenda and that's what a potential dictator will do when they're trying to get into power.

    • Observant_One

      I always thought that gun control was using both hands!

      • Think About It

        True gun control, if you really are a person who owns a gun and understands how to use it, is putting the second round through the same hole the first one made.

        • Observant_One

          I wish I was that good!!

        • Reader

          Well, at least a good tight grouping. With the target moving from first impact, exact hold placement would be significantly harder to pull off than with a stationary target.

        • WhiteFalcon

          If the first round is well placed, you don't need a second in the same hole. If the first round is not well placed, than you need a second in a different hole.

      • Crashaxe

        Good gun control is a sharp eye and a steady hand.

  • tfuel

    The only people against guns are Democrats who know people will use them on them for breaking our Countrys laws

    • dondehoff

      "Tfuel":. Sir, do not paint Democats with such a broad brush---the general "80/20" rule applies to them, just as it does to Republicans and Independents--80% our good people, and we are going to need them all on our side--they are your neighbors, class-mates, friends, co-workers, golf partners, fellow lodge and church members, and on occasion one' spouse. Many people, regardlless of party, are beginning to see most of these issues rise well above the "party" level, and have become "life or death" American problems.

        Thank you for reminding us of that fact. I hate what the leftists are doing to this country. Most Democrats are fine patriots, but the 20% are progressives (communists) who are trying to destroy this country. It's like the race problem- 80% of Blacks hate the 20% that are nig_ers, because they bring down the race. Whites have white trash, and Blacks have Black trash. We just don't have a one-word term for white trash. To me, the word "nig_er" does not denote skin color.

        • Gary Also

          Absolutley!, Bob,...Nigg...oops 'N' words,must be 'politically correct'..are black people that HATE white people!...Therefore, Nigg...oops the 'N' word is NOT a racist term!.Not all black people hate white people!...It's a state of mind! Nigg,...oops 'N' words are people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Wright, AND Mr. and Mrs Obama are Nigg,...oops 'N' words!!...AND RACISTS! Prove me wrong!...

        • Sharon1946

          I agree with you Bob Compton and Gary Also. I have many friends who are Black and they will agree with you also. The only difference I see between them and me is they have a darker tan, other than that we are the same. The other % who are always there to blame white people for their problems and are racist and accuse all whites of being racist are the ones who keep all the S*** stirred up. I am part Native American and I have reasons to dislike also because of what they did to my ancestors, but, I don't go around looking for a reason to hate and I don't blame the people of today, it wasn't them, it was their ancestors and the GOVERNMENT.

  • Mattwm

    20. If you outlaw guns, then only outlaws will have guns.

    • DD

      That's right, and it would make it very dangerous for responsible people who would then not be able to defend themselves against those outlaws.

      • Sirius Lee

        If the government outlaws guns, they grow in power and corruption as absolute power corrupts absolutely. Thus the government becomes an outlaw and has guns. And will use the guns to subjugate the people thus proving they are outlaws. So, mentioning the government a second time is redundant. ;)

        • Heylottylotty

          Of course if gun posession is made a crime, there WILL be a lot more criminals in this country. Ones willing to dis the law rather than give up the only means of private protection.

    • recon77

      only outlaws and governments

      • sideng

        Same difference. . .

  • Tiger716

    It was stated in Grass Roots that the police have killed more people (innocents) with their guns than private citizens have with their guns. Not sure why that's so but there must be reasons. None the less, if I need a cop NOW, they're usually only 10 minutes away. My gun is a second away and I will use it to defend myself. It IS a deterent to criminals to think that a potential victim may be carrying. Keep in mind that where ever gun laws are put in place, crime rates go up. Why do you think that is? huh?

    • Ballistic45

      As a private citizen, you know who is threatening you, no question who you aim at.. Police on the other hand role up onto a situation not knowing who is who... They see everyone as a threat where a private citizen knows who the threat is and where its coming from..

        Most cops think they are God and we are all criminals!!!!

        • Ballistic45

          No... Most cops just want to go home after work just like you and I do... Dead Cops made a mistake.. They have to be wary of EVERYONE when they role up on a situation, for their own welfare... I will not clump all cops as bad GODS... Like all groups, they have rotten apples that make it hard for all the rest trying to do what is right, often in a thankless job...

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KRK7Q7ZNT75UVU43DHR5DCR5L4 nmgene

      Most cops couldnt hit the broad side of a barn if they were standing inside it. The la police fired 72 rounds and only hit the perp 7 times. I shoot 5 targets in 3.2 seconds and I am 61 years old. I draw and put 2 in center of mass in 1 second. I am almost as good with my left hand and can and do shoot with both at the same time. I am always armed and just waiting for them to come and try to take my guns. They will probably get me but I will take many with me. I sleep with 4 under my pillow and an AK 47 with a 30 round clip leaning against the bed. Bring it on.

      • WhiteFalcon

        Shooting when the "target" is moving and shooting back is a lot different than shooting at a stationary target that isn't shooting back. Also, when there is a tremendous amount of epinepherine in your system, you are likely to not be able to hit anything.

    • evantoo

      First they need to be TAUGHT to read. Mouthing words from a piece of paper does not demonstrate any comprehension of what they mean. "Yobummer and his elk" serve as perfect examples of that.

    I carry a gun because I found carrying a cop was just too heavy and akward.Also when seconds count 911 and the police are minutes away.

    • Ballistic45

      And people have to realize that police carry guns to protect themselves, NOT YOU...
      And they really are not paid to be YOUR PROTECTOR: ( A rich history of court decisions that found the police to have no constitutional obligation to protect individuals from private individuals.
      In 1856, the U.S. Supreme Court (South v. Maryland) found that law enforcement officers had no affirmative duty to provide such protection.
      In 1982 (Bowers v. DeVito), the Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit held, "...there is no Constitutional right to be protected by the state against being murdered by criminals or madmen." )

      • Towncar07

        Absolutely right ! The Police and law-enforcement in general only have the specific duty to protect the PUBLIC safety, and to enforce law and order. That's it...the rest is up to [US]...

  • DrBarbara

    I carry a gun because it is my right to do so. Oh, and btw, I know how to use it.

  • icemancold

    Gun control is a firm grip,a steady hand and the ability to hit the target 4 out of 5 shots if not 5 out of 5.

    • Desert_Fox

      Iceman, you must pack a small weapon. If any punk tries to take mine they're going to face either 9 rounds of 45ACP hollow point in a shot group of 6 the size of my fist center of mass with other 3 round still in the area or 6 rounds of 357 cal (158 grain semi-jacketed hollow point) grouped in a 5 shots cluster the size of a coke can and 1 round either a couple of inch above or below that cluster. I AM NOT SCARE TO DROP A CAP ON SOME PUNK TRYING TO HARM MY FAMILY, JUST SCARED THAT I'LL MISS!

        • Desert_Fox

          Sorry, Bro, when you said 5 rounds I just assumed. The reason I'd put all 9 rounds into my target I learned that the courts always asked: "Why did you empty your gun?", and I was told by a police office, a classmate, that all you had to say: "I was scared for my life." The courts usually assume you are just a dump idiot that didn't know what you were doing, they never really stop and look at your background.

    Number 6 defines all of it: Gun control is about control: CONTROL OF THE SHEEPLE! An armed citizenry is a free citizenry. When the government fears the people, the people are free. When the people fear the government, the people are enslaved.

  • Ballistic45

    For those gun grabbers and anti-gun believers... I ask this question .....

    HOW MANY TIMES have you been potentially seen as a target for rape, robbery or a beat down by some thug? Of course you don't know... But you also don't know that the reason you were passed up.. Could one reason be because Armed Citizens are a deterrent to Crime and The Thug eyeballing YOU decided you could be armed? Does it not follow that others being armed, whether you believe in gun ownership or not, benefits YOU? Think about it, I know it hurts, but try.....

  • pduffy

    Here's one to add to the list. Government will NEVER disarm or impose gun control on itself and will always have guns because it TAKES GUNS to impose gun control. Funny how they think they can own guns in order to impose gun control, but the people cannot own them to impose gun control on the government. It's an air of superiority by the elite class that controls government that believes it can use the power of the gun, but the deny the ordinary citizen that same right. It's satanic to the core.

          The Gov't didn't buy 450 million rounds of .40 JHP ammo for nothing. And how about the 175 million rounds of .223? All I can say is they best send the ones they like the least first. Maybe the rest will get the concept that it goes BOTH ways.

        • TOO INFORMED

          It was FEMA that ordered 175 million rounds of ammo. Why whould FEMA the Federal Emergency Management Agency need or require that many rounds?

          Now now! Let's play nice. The absolute truth.....the best firearm in the world......is the one in your hand,, bar none. Don't want to sound insane or such, but ever since that firist 22 my dad bought me at the age of 10, I was hooked. A fine weapon is a passion of pleasure just to look at, hold in your hand and feel the quaility of such a work of art. Yes, I confess....I'm a gun nut. Back in 67 I was drafted by another liberal Demo. LBJ and went off the the land of the yellow man to defend our way of life ( yeah, right). At 19 I was put in many a situation where all I had was the weapons in my hand and my possesion to keep me alive. Soon they became my closest friends, friends that never failed me if you gave them the care and attention they required. They were always there, waiting and ready to get ya out of any situation where someone wanted to see me deceased. The guns I had didn't want to hurt anybody, they were just tools, not unlike a hammer in the hands of a master carprenter. Tools to do their job as required by the hand that held them. For any one who was not in Viet Nam, it was nothing vagly similar to the so called conlicts we have had these past decades. Paticular with my MOS, if I wanted certain weapon, a LAW, 50 cal., 90 recoiless or whatever, I just made a visit to the local quartermast at the ammo dump and itwas just like shopping at Wal-mart. There was none of this quailifiying BS, or counting out a few rounds that you had to account for, hell give me a case or two of that and some of those ....talk about hog heaven. Course it was up to me and my guys once we got the things to go out a figure out how the hell the use some of those things. They gave the stats of that war that it took an average of 10,000 rounds to take out one enemy. All the shooting we did at nothing with all those different weapons, I'm sure accounted for 5% of that average. The day we made contact with the real thing that was shooting back with weapons as good as ours, I had a real awakening....to see the results of what me and my, uptill then play things , could inflict on another human being. I live with that everyday of my life and see things as vivid as when it happend back in 1968. But I also got to see what the other side could do to my fellow soldiers and it all came full circle, if not them it would be me of the man next to me that would be the victum. I assure you I was just a scared to death 19-20 kid with no desire to be nothing but home. My point in all of this, if your;'re still awake , is the bond, passion, and respect for the instruments that saw me and thousands like me through the unimagineable hell we were involved in. That was what really started my ardent passion for weapons. or guns. Having my 'FFl in two states since that time and going to the shooting range everytime I got a free moment still is there today. Joining every organization that promotes and protects our gun rights is of such importance. At 63 years of old, I had no estimate of ammo I have loaded and shot over these years and never had a single accident or close call while guns were in my hand. Course I can't say the same about some of the want a be shooters I have seen in action. Total idiots that ran out an bought a gun just to say the had one, only to finally work up the nerve to actually put bullets in it and go to the firing range. Anyone thinging of getting a weapon must know all a weapon is, is an extension of you. It will do anly what you instruct it to do.By it's self it is just a harmless tool but a tool that demands your respect if you want to make it do it's job. Wheather it's poke a hole in a piece of paper, knock over a steel chicken, or defend your life. The right to bear arms is exactlally that a right, but you must bear the burden of "responsibility" of what you do with it. And that is a great and demanded responsibility you'd better have. Get to know your defender, take it apart, clean it, learn from another knowledgeable, responsible person how to give your firearm the proper function and use that you will enjoy or need. Remember it's just a tool, it can lay in your drawer and never do a thing until it becomes a part of you, then it is there to do exactally what you tell it to do. It can be the reason your alive or if you just want to "own" a gun to say you have one,,,,,then it can be your worst nightmare. Aim small hit small.

Phrank and I and thousands just like us WON EVERY Battle in Viet Nam only for our politicians to give away the Victory. Peace with Honor - Ha ! Today's politicians are worse than those in the '60's - 70's. It is past time to FIRE MOST of CONGRESS ! Also, our outstanding Armed Forces desperately need a REAL Commander-in-Chief. God Bless America and welcome home Phrank.

  • Concerned Law Abiding Citizen

    Our politicians don't worry about guns as they use our money to hire folks to carry guns for them and provide their protection. Just like the Secretary of Energy admitted the cost of gas didn't bother him as he didn't own a car right now, he has government funded and provided transportation and gasoline.

    Our Law Enforcement usually do the best they can, but as stated below, their responsibility according to the courts is to investigate crimes & catch criminals, not provide protection or prevent crimes against us

    When you hear the burglar breaking in, or get attacked and dial 911, only to get a busy signal or message "We are taking other calls, please hold for the next operator", it won't help or save you right then. The states that have added Concealed Carry Permits, especially those with laws that state they "must issue" allow their citizens to protect themselves and their crime rates have actually gone down.

    Look at the crime rates in Chicago, Detroit, California and other places where their are no rights to be able to defend or protect yourself, and a few places state you can carry in your home or business but not on the way to or from or when out trying to enjoy life, go to dinner or otherwise enjoy freedoms.

    Contrary to Mayor Bloomberg and his other Mayor buddies, crime goes down when firearms are there to protect the law abiding citizens, probably because criminals admit they don't want to face a firearm. So the next time a politician tells you that you don't need a firearm or a permit to carry, check to see who is carrying one for them, and who is protecting them, at your expense, while you are vulnerable.

      That is why the organization Oathkeeper exists. Check them out. Those who take an oath to the Constitution and work at protecting and serving "The People", should do so rather than protect and serve the politicians. ANY of their acts or orders must be legal and comply with the Constitution and Bill of Rights. They protect serve the people and Constitution, not the Commander in Chief or other "Rulers". Oathkeepers promotes such an understanding of duty among those who take a sacred oath. I hope our military and police will make such a distinction and honor their oath rather than Rulers, if a time to decide ever comes.

      Detroit has the potential for change, at least. Michigan is a 'shall issue' state, and state law makes it clear that CPL trumps all city and local regulations. If you are licensed to carry concealed in Michigan (or any state whose license Michigan honors), then you can legally carry in Detroit anywhere that isn't prohibited by state or federal law.

    Another point based on #11. With 85,000,000 guns pointed at them, no foreign army would ever dare attack the USA. Imagine, for instance, that thet Red Chinese sent over their entire army of 2.25 million to attack us. Besides facing US forces, each invading soldier could count on an average of 37 guns pointed at him. Case closed.

    • Ballistic45

      And don't forget that there are approx 250 Million guns owned by those 80+Million gun owners.. If they just gave one gun to an unarmed Citizen, the Civilian Army would Double... Also many gun owners are licensed for fully automatic weapons, functioning tanks, artillery, warplanes and other weapons...

    Kudos for the good list of truisms. My take is that I support the right of all citizens not convicted of a weapons abuse violent crime to carry a weapon responsibly. I support the right of all USA citizens to have, as a birthright legacy education factor, the training to be responsible with a weapon - and to be held accountable as responsible citizens. I support only two government factors in our citizen armament: the Department for Civilian Marksmanship, and keeping our military properly armed. As USA citizens, we should be able to hit what we shoot at, never point a firearm at anyone you aren't planning to shoot, and follow the instructions of legitimate law enforcement when appropriate as part of a 'Well Regulated Militia'. This would drop the crime rate to nearly nothing as violent criminals cease surviving and most others change profession or get shut down and delivered to enforcement. No, it's not the Wild West; I would require that judges pay 'breathing bonus' to vigilantes, posses, and other citizens' law enforcement efforts that deliver live suspects instead of dead bodies. We want our nation back; the libtards can take their socialist state back across the ocean with them when we exile them!

    Government did not give us the "right" to own weapons for any purpose, We earned the "right" to be free, and as is said in other comments, an armed man is a Free man".
    So if the govt. did not grant us the "right" to own weapons, who did? WE DID... we earned the "RIGHT" to keep and bear arms, What is in the Constitution is the restriction to GOVERNMENT to NOT make any laws restricting the "right" to keep weapons about, that we may remain free of an overweening govt. that is liable to say what our "rights" are or aren't.

    What the Goverment (e.g. Left wing) doesn't realize is that exercising "gun control" and disarming the public, will only increase illegal gun sales through the "Black Market". The people will defend themselves one way or another. What would you rather have: legal guns bought by law-abiding citizens, or illegally obtained guns by anyone? 95% of most violent crimes are conducted with illegally obtained guns.

    When Obama died, George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates. He slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the nation I helped conceive!" Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties but you failed." James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin and said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!" Thomas Jefferson was next, beat Obama with a long cane and snarled, "It was evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence.”
    The beatings and thrashings continued as George Mason, James Monroe and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the radical socialist leader. As Obama lay bleeding and in pain, an Angel appeared. Obama wept and said, "This is not what you promised me." The Angel replied, "I told you there would be 72 VIRGINIANS waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said?? You really need to listen when someone is trying to tell you something!"

    What hyperbole and twists of the truth. There are over 200 million rifles, shotguns and handguns in the public’s possession. We also know that 2/3 of the 16,137 murders in the US in 2004, were caused by guns and over ½ of 401,326 violent crimes were done with the aid of a gun.
    Meanwhile firearms have had a special place in this country’s history, and the Second Amendment to the US Constitution states: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” But because of a history of violence, especially in the decade of the Depression, pressure was exerted on the Federal government to control guns, and the Firearms Act of 1934 banned silencers and sawed off shotguns. There are also laws regulating the ownership of machine guns, and heavy military ordinance.

    Many in this part of the country see the NRA as an industry lobby that is only interested in promoting gun sales, and therefore benefiting by being the beneficiary of large contributions from these gun manufacturers. Obviously, given the fact that Wayne LaPierre makes almost $900,000 per year and the NRA hierarchy lives quite well, one could draw the conclusion that the Second Amendment is almost meaningless as a “basic right” but more used as a tactic to rile up hunters and gun enthusiasts to raise money to protect the gun producers.

    One could guess that the average citizen, who does not want to carry a gun, would be fearful for their lives. In other words, they would be forced to carry a firearm to be competitively safer. It sort of reminds me of the track runner who in a climate of zero drug deregulation would be forced to use performance-enhancing drugs to compete, or he/she would be at a substantive disadvantage!

    Of course some supporters of the NRA claim that an armed public could prevent the totalitarian overthrow of the United States government. They also state cite that Hitler had confiscated all the guns in Germany, and if the Jews had even a small fraction of the gun ownership that is in the US today they would have been much more able to protect themselves from arrest and deportation. But on the other hand the Russian revolt of 1905 and the Revolution of 1917 came about because the generally unarmed public had guns because of the Russo-Japanese War and WWI.

    Conditions in 1791 weren't the same as 1860, 1918 or 1945. Maybe if the South didn't have guns, we would have avoided the Civil War which cost 631,000 lives out of 32 million. It was one of the most devastating wars in history.

    But most of you folks are ready to fight another one after Obama wins in November. From my perspective I would like to see smart locks/triggers, more severe background checks, controls over guns show sales, licensing for hand guns, repeal of stand your ground laws, and a general education program in our schools to teach the danger of schools as we should be teaching with smoking.

    Their is clear evidence that almost all police chiefs and forces want strict restrictions on guns. There is ample evidence that there are too many deaths from armed robbery, accidents in homes, shootings by spouses, serial killings and mass killings.

    You can shape history any way you want, but the Russian Revolution that brought in the communists was assisted by guns carried by soldiers back from the Russo-Japanese War in 1905 and from the front in 1917.

    Most of the laws broken in this country come from three sources, not particularly liberal: Wall Street white collar criminals and their business buddies who violate laws against price-fixing, evasion of taxes, money laundering and corporate chicanery, drug crime assisted by stolen weapons usually provided by the illegal sale of legitimately bought guns, and average criminality promulgated by white trailer park trash, who are uneducated, are social outcasts, and are psychopaths and sociopaths. Just look whose in jail. its hardly liberal, educated people in jails. Much of the language here reflects the profile of some of these miscreants. Hatred, bigotry, and threats, by gun-loving ED deficient, older white males, who seem to be consumed by hatred and out of the social loop.

    Have fun. As I have said before, If you believe that the GOP and their right-wing fellow travelers on Wall Street, and in the money-driven churches, care a fig about your future, you are delusional. They go to their clubs, drive their Mercedes, pay record low taxes, export jobs, create few jobs here and love what you do for them. But, deep down, the liberals are more tolerant and concerned about your needs then the right-wing hypocrites.

    My fellow citizens;
    For years and years we have been able to depend on our vote to guide and direct our Nation.
    Slowly over the years, our say in how this Country is run has been taken from us. Not by an outside force but by each of us delegating our authority to people we hired to speak for us. Then we left them alone to do the job we instructed them to do and they turned away from us to greed
    You know the rest of that story.
    The fact I want to point out now is, even though it looks like we have painted our self’s into a corner we have several tools available for our use. The Socialist’s that we have allowed to over take our leadership rolls in our government know the name of those tools also, they are in order Our God, our Constitution, our Flag and you know the rest.
    We have a standing army at our service.
    All the people that ever took the OATH to protect and defend The United States of America from all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC are Oath Keepers; your Oath is in effect for life.
    We have the weapons for that Army because we are a free society and we have a God given right to posses and use those arms. See why Nobama wants your weapons? It is the people he wants to control, controlling the guns is only a path to controlling you.
    Summation;
    We have the standing Army,
    We have the weapons for that Army
    We see a need for that Army
    The oath Keepers are there to back up the wishes of the people and to fight only if we must.
    Roll call in 15 minutes!

    For sure, it's not the guns, but control. It was said four years ago, and is true today: Healthcare is NOT about health, but control. We are dealing with an anti-American sentiment inside government nefer seen openly before. Scary. Guns, healthcare, and equally as dangerous is a track that Obama seems to be on; Following the Cloward-Piven Strategy of bankrupting a nation by creating massive dependency ensuring the governing party CONTROL far into the future. Sound and look familiar? If the ruling bunch now in power isn't defeated, the sweeping power and control will be enormous. Say hello to a Euro-style existence.

    The Bushes, Clintons, and Obama support UN Agenda 21. Obama and Hillary have told the UN they will support gun control. With no weapons for self defense, the UN can eventually control people with it's one world government run by UN folks. Obama has enacted laws that allow him to arrest citizens without a reason and hold them as long as he wants. Obamacare allows him to have his own army. We built a lot of extra prisons that are still empty. Obama understands that Agenda 21 calls for an end game to leave only 500M out of the current 7B people left alive to populate the Earth.

    ALL TRUE STATEMENTS! HOW DOES THIS HELP SECURE OUR QUICKLY ERODING RIGHTS?

    • Robert

      It gives responsible people an opportunity to prepare for the inevitability of conflict. Many good people in fact most people want to find good in every human being and they have been complacent for so long that they cannot see what Dirty Diaper Head Obama is doing right in front of them. They can't get their mind around the fact that their country, their rights and freedoms, and everywhere life is going to be taken away from them. By pointing these things out hopefully they will take a second to rethink what's going on and take action.

      Stop and consider for a moment how many hunters there are in America, the hunting licenses issued in all 50 states. All of these licenses represent an individual who has at least one gun and one would hope a reasonable knowledge of its use. If all of these people make sure that they have ammunition on hand and are willing to make a stand that represents the largest standing army in the world.

      Think for a minute if ever sportsman to take up arms to protect defend the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and America! Think of the what kind of a moron would want to stir up that kind of an Army. Unfortunately that moron sets in Washington and goes by the name of Obama and Obama is only a figurehead. It Is the Social Progressives that have been plotting to take over this country for years.

      Put it another way little guy on horseback said it best" to arms to arms the Progressives are coming"

    obama and congress are going to try to ban firearms before the end of this year. I think it is going to take a physical stand against them to stop them and they can`t be left in office. Im not sure if Americans have the stomach for it.

  • sovereintyofone

    Simply put: If you take away the right to keep and bear arms of an individual, you can control every aspect of their life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness (another words: FREEDOM) . Which by the way the government hates all of the above because it believes you are too stupid to think for yourself and make your own way in life. If I were to come up to you and tell you " I think you are too stupid to run your own life " you would probably punch me right in the chops (mouth). But the government does it everyday to you and most say or do nothing about it.

    17, Gun Control is nothing more than being able to hit your target .

    18. When guns are outlawed . only the outlaws will have guns to prey on those who don't

    19. Guns don't kill people , people kill people

    20. An armed society is a polite society ( you never know , that guy you insulted and or cheated just might put a round in your butt)

    Responsible citizens who own guns are not the problem . The problem lies with the criminal element obtaining guns via a back door operation such as the government operation like Fast and Furious .Criminals are always going to get their hands on guns one way or another . What keeps them in check or has is the fact that they themselves may fall victim to an armed citizen who legally owns his firearm and knows how to use it . Laws that once kept criminals somewhat in check have been diluted as to mean nothing to a criminal or gang member . These people know at most they are going to simply spend a long spell in prison should they be caught and convicted . Gun control advocates use the Wild West analogy to scare people . In reality , there are very few documented gun fights except in Hollywood and the movies they make .

    I had a dream recently. It was so vivid, I awoke at 3am, which is abnormal for me.
    I was standing with a large group of people, & they were intently looking up in the sky. It was like it was very early morning, just as the day is dawning. As I started to try to see what it was that the crowd was looking at, suddenly I realized that it was Jesus! I started jumping up & down with all my might & yelling: "It's Him! It's Him!" At that moment I awoke, and I had cold chills all over me, & I could literally feel the presence of the Lord. It took over an hour to calm down, & it was all I could do to keep from shouting Hallelujah over & over again. I have never experienced a dream this real before in my life, & I am convinced this dream came from the Lord.

    Friends, Jesus is coming soon. It will be a time of great celebration for those who are looking for His appearance. For you who don't want Him to be your King, it will be a terrifying time to see the Lord of all creation in all of his glory, & surrounded by the armies of Heaven.

    I hope this encourages each & every one of you out there. Jesus loves you all & does not want anyone to perish. It's up to you to receive Him into your heart as Savior & Lord. Do not delay; do not put off getting yourself right with Him, because you never know when the end of the world might be for you.

    Truer words were never spoken. The Progressives must have gun control to enable them to take over and destroy America. They hate everything about America free speech, freedom of religion, and all the other freedoms that Americans have.
    The Bill of Rights is just that a listing of the God-given rights of Americans the first 10 amendments are without a doubt the most critical to a free society. The Progressives see the Bill of Rights and the Constitution is nothing more than a roll of toilet paper and that's how they plan to use it. The only thing that stands between them and the total elimination of freedom in America is the original Bill of Rights.

    No one of the First 10 Amendments can stand alone. The whole document must be accepted as one for it to be of any use to freedom loving people. Of the first 10 the Second Amendment is critical because it is the teeth of the American people. As long as the American people have the right to keep and bear arms in defense of the Constitution and the nation America will stand. Look upon those first 10 amendments as a watchdog. A very healthy and well trained and disciplined watchdog is looking out for America. What good is a watchdog that he's chained, muzzled, and has always teeth pulled. That's what will happen If Dirty Diaper Head Obama and his progressive buddies get their way.

    The true meaning Of Gun Control Is Being Able To Hit Your Target The First Shot followed by two more. Two shots main body mass one shot to the head. That's gun control.

  • samtman

    Its about short manhoods.

  • wantmylifeback

    I think the control is beyond this. I have seen the maps of all the FENMA camps in the US. I have seen the pitcures of the multiple caskets that are located at these camps. I have seen the video on you tube of the red,blue and yellow cargo train cabinets to transport people. I have read about the 4717 armored trucks that are now here under Homeland Security. These camps are all fenced and guarded now. The gov has stored over 470 million tons of food. This is beyond control. Search for yourself and see.

  • gmarshall

    During WWII, an aide to the Japanese general in charge of the army was asked why they just didn't form an invasion force and attack America on it's own soil. The response was that there were so many civilians with guns behind every bush that it would be impossible to be victorious. As long as Americans are able to own guns, their freedom is assured. The same is true today as it was in WWII. An armed America is a free America!

  • Silas Longshot

    Gun control is using both hands and proper trigger press.

    Get up close and personal with a good scope.

    In a gunfight, don't stand on the 'X'. Keep moving or 'X' will be the spot they find your body.

    The total population of registered hunters in America as of 2001, is ranging from 23 million to 43.7 million individuals. That's the number of potential snipers the enemies of freedom will have to contend with during the coming attempt to overcome this country. Every other American with a firearm, we'll just toss in for good measure. Let's not forget that the best gun salesman in the history of America is in da house now, so the record month over month sales since elected will add substantially to those numbers.

    Get ready. Search surviving urban crisis.

    Well Said, AMEN!!!!!!!!!

    Item 6 says it all, Gun Control is not about guns, it is about control.

  • CaptTurbo

    Here's another unsettling, undeniable fact: The Dept of Homeland Security just purchased 450 MILLION rounds of .40 cal hollow point ammunition. Hollow points are banned from military use so the only explanation is that they expect civil uprising are planning to use them on the public. I wonder what the odds are of us actually having elections in November?

  • Maxine

  • Blair

    The Second Amendment's the SHORTEST amendment in the Constitution.

  • Ranchman

    2A is the bellwether right for all the other Rights. By attacking 2A, politicians show they cannot be trusted and they fear the people because they know they're doing wrong by them. The only reason the government wants to abolish our right to keep and bear arms is so they can take the rest of our rights away as well. When we lose our 2A rights, we will lose the rest of them.

    Over 300,000,000 guns in privat hands in Amerilca, how much more psychosis do we need.

    I live in Texas and have a CHL (Concealed Handgun License). At a party once, I sat at a table with a college professor from England, now livinig and teaching here. Somehow, the talk turned to guns and he said that he was against guns and that England had outlawed guns. I said that the result of England and Australia banning guns was a 100% increase in armed assaults and when Texas passed a concealed carry law, armed assaults went down over 50%. I asked him how come he was against guns and he responded that many who had guns were not responsible. I told him that we should outlaw cars too, because too many drivers did not drive responsibly and cars killed a lot more people than guns in the US. He got up and moved to another table.

  • pointdan

    The second amendment is alive and well in the USA. However, our MORALLY CORRUPT politicians
    continue their daily assault against the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
    Hey Mayor Mikey Bloomberg of New York: you can legislate all you wants about salt, sugar, trans fats,
    super-sized drinks, bike lanes, etc. BUT - when it comes to guns: YOU COME AND TAKE THEM !!!

    I like this one, a government that fears your guns , should be feared themselves.
