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.
Assault Rifle kill. Let's get rid of them.
My idea is to limit firearms in the U. S. to those in existence when the 2nd amendment went into effect. Flintlock, one shot, 5 mins. to re-load. But outlaw the bayonets! And maybe limit the bullets.
No one needs military-grade weaponry for "fun" or a "hobby."
That's why almost no one is currently able to have "military grade" weaponry, and it's never for fun. Do your homework.
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.
Yes, let's ban these weapons of mass destruction to protect all human life & all living creatures! <3 God Speed!
This is way over due...we HAVE a gun problem people.
The only purpose for assault rifles is to kill humans. Stop the insanity of the nation, please, and let's join together for this cause.
The owner of this page is a hypocrite who will delete your comment if it does not go along with his Liberal viewpoint.
I take that back, I couldn't see my previous comment from my desktop as I has posted it from my iPad. I was wrong and I apologize.
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.
