If criminals want guns they're gonna find a way to get them. What's the point in taking good people's rights away? Why should we be victims of something that our "great" government can't control with or without laws? Example: Drugs are illegal yet how many are out there on the streets? My point is good people will be good and bad people will be bad no matter what laws are out there. My rights shouldn't be violated because politicians feel they need to take a pointless stand.

Black kids are running through the streets killing people, Muslims are beheading Christians, the borders are wide open, criminals are going unpunished and Americans are being treated like 2ns class citizens in their own country; he wonders why we won't give up our weapons? He can't and won't protect us.

Why is it that everyone is blaming President Obama, bet if you lost someone to gunfire you would definitely feel different, when our first amendment was written it was against invasion, not your next door neighbor, and everyone in the neighborhood I believe in defending myself but I also understand what the Right To Bear Arms was intended for if you want to Bear Arms so badly join the Military and fight for that right instead of gripe.

I agree more with LEAVE THE CONSTITUTION alone. There has to be some other way than to ask free law abiding citizens to give up their guns. I am not a gun owner and do not particularly care for them. However, it's our right. Given by the constitution. That should end all debates.

Every year, slowly but methodically we lose another right to bear arms. I don't care what the legislation says, I just want my voice to be heard. We KEEP The 2cnd Amendment in full as it was intended. Fear is driving a our rights to bear arms down a terrible drain from which there is no coming back. We have to put voice to the will of the people or we WILL lose our right to bear arms and become a nation easily manipulated by every threat from within and without.

Fear IS driving you to act irrationally. First, you say that we are "methodically losing our right to bear arms", then you say that if we don't "voice our will of the people we WILL lose our right to bear arms". So, which is it. Are we losing that right, or WILL we lose that right? You can't keep you paranoia conspiracies straight> The "will of the people" is BACKGROUND CHECKS.

I think a good way to tell if there is any erosion in the 'alleged threat' called 'gun control' is to attempt to buy some ammunition for whatever gun you used to think was always available and well stocked at your favorite store. And if you find it hard to locate, ask why.... -JR

The second amendment is not even about our rights to own a gun. It states we have the right to bare arms in a controlled militia, in other words it means we have the right to revolt against our government if we as a people feel repressed. But it is hard to revolt if we can not arm ourselves.

Since people from the UK keep commenting here saying that gun crime there is lower than here, let’s look at some numbers then. USA Population = 311,705,000, Total Crimes = 11,877,218; United Kingdom Population = 62,435,709, Total Crimes = 6,523,706. Now if we look at the numbers and compare the populations, the ratio of crime vs. population, we can see that the UK is a cesspool of crime. The USA is almost 5 times the UK’s population but wow UK crime is more than half of ours. The USA isn’t...

Since people from the UK keep commenting here saying that gun crime there is lower than here, let’s look at some numbers then. USA Population = 311,705,000, Total Crimes = 11,877,218; United Kingdom Population = 62,435,709, Total Crimes = 6,523,706. Now if we look at the numbers and compare the populations, the ratio of crime vs. population, we can see that the UK is a cesspool of crime. The USA is almost 5 times the UK’s population but wow UK crime is more than half of ours. The USA isn’t even within the 10 most violent crimes in the world, while the UK is # 1. So please tell me again how that gun ban is going for you. The UK people who keep commenting about how Americans have too much guns, have their heads in the sand, don’t get out much, or are in denial. These numbers prove that even without guns, people will commit crimes, while law abiding people cannot defend themselves. If you think your gun ban is working out in the UK then stay there and leave Americans alone. Don’t get mad that we have that right and the ability to defend that right. Your reasoning of more guns means more violent crime is nil with the numbers I have posted above. Stop lying to yourselves and mind your own business.
