Only an anti American would sign a petition to take away our constitutional rights, you want to empower the ever encroaching police state with the authority to disarm the citizens?
Above is a much more practical approach, one that doesn't involve surrender....
The privilege of bearing arms has been abused and is turning our world into something our founding fathers never even imagined it to be. The constitution was created way before the problems we face today had arisen. it is time to make a change, our world is changing and so should we.
And what would you do with a gun in a police state, fight off the army ? Such nonsense!
The best protection against a police state is a military draft, since draftees are less likely to cooperate in an attempted military coup. I don't see that happening anytime soon, tho.
Reid Campbell I don't surrender to fear, even tho there are so many guns out there that we could arm every man, woman and child in the US, with plenty left over for Canada.
when will we learn how many dead kids will it take..
I know that
so he killed a bunch of kids with a legally registered firearm. bravo to him.
Let's keep the conversation going and make this happen for Obama: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCsGMwHGINI&sns=fb.
“Gun control? It’s the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. I’m a bad guy; I’m always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I’ll pull the trigger. We’ll see who wins.” - Sammy “The Bull” Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti
Yeah Sammy and we will lock you up as a career felon with an illegal weapon.
Obviously, gun control is not going to end all violence. But I believe we need to send a message, collectively, as a society that we do not want individuals (who are not on the front in a war) to have the capability to kill many people in a short time using assault rifles. The destruction these weapons do because of their speeds and multiple rounds is sickening.
Hi Tammy Plekker VanZalen: My daughter said the same thing. Scary! I have no issue with the right to bear arms -- but that amendment was not intended with that kind of weaponry in mind. Protecting oneself from a home invader is one thing; but having a gun whose sole purpose is the killing many people in the shortest time is ridiculous.
20 innocent children died for the NRA and its sympathizer's right to own a 233 Bushmaster.
As usual you don't even know what your talking about 233 Bushmaster??????
I'm so tired of the talking heads...bobble, bobble, bobble...
let's. take. action. NOW.
This shouldent even be an option. What does anyone need this type of weapon for except to hurt someone. A hand gun or riffle is one thing.
So, you pack your registered handgun into your shoulder holster and take a walk, and some punk with a gun he stole from your neighbor's house walks up and demands your cash. You reach for the gun, and, while you are getting it out, he pops you right there. Now he has your money, your gun, and you get a casket. Sure makes for good self defense, now, doesn't it?
This is the true Pro-Life movement. Let's bring some sanity to our culture. There are more than 1,000,000 people in Florida alone who have permits to carry a concealed weapon. What is that about?
It's our right as a united states citizen and I bet you don't see a single one of them out shooting people and crime is very low! Huh.
I've always been against armed citizens. Still am
Then go live in Europe
the ban should be for all automatic weapons and handguns. a rifle in the home should be sufficient for self defense.
who's to make that decission
