I don't own a gun, but I believe it is our constitutional right to keep & bear arms; and that government does not have the right to prevent those who want to exercise this right from doing so.

Do you really need a gun that shoots five to seven rounds per second?

i dont know of anyone that can fire a SEMI auto that fast. i think that what your talkn about are the FULL autos. which were banned in the 1930s. only law enforcement and military can carry those. and yes if the government or any other nation that could pose a threat to our shores has them or if criminals can get there hands on them then yes. i would like to have the ability to deffend myself and my family from such a threat. as it is right now we cannot deffend ourself against any power...

i dont trust our evil empire to save me in time of need. the only thing i can trust the government for is to take away more libertys and freedoms. patriot act, ndaa, agenda 21 etc. i will never trust a government that does everything within its power to disarm its citzens. and steal freedom.

Does the government Danny? Does the presidents family deserve to have better protection then my own? If he does then that makes him and his army a dictatorship, which is far from a Republic. We are much closer to socialism with the ideals of 9,000 gun deaths being used to take away 300,000,000 gun owners rights to bear arms. More than 15,000 people died in 2011 due to prescription drug overdoses and 11,500 people died in drunk driving accidents. According to this study from Columbia, Obama...

I have to dis agree. Our county would be a safer place with out these type of weapons in the public's hands. I think if you were one of the Newtown parents you would feel differently.I am all for having hunting guns if that's your thing but a gun that shoots as fast as you keep pulling the trigger is for wars.This mentally ill person killed 26 people in a about two minutes.

Danny Madry also if you think a revolution only can happen once in America, fighting against tyranny, then I do not know what to tell you. The question is not if, but more of a question of when? In order to be protected from tyranny, individuals must bear arms like that of the army in which tyranny will use to try to defeat the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. If we give up our rights, eventually we will have none. If you choose not to have an automatic weapon, then that is your right...

It's not likely that out government will rebel against us but there is a good chance that this slaughter could happen again. Why do you need a weapon like the Newtown shooter used?

Danny where have you been getting your informtion? Danny when I was in Lawenforcement it was very clear to me and my fellow Officers that it is very easy to get black market weapons that have come across the Mexican U.S. border. ad guys do not buy firearms through legal channels because they are traceable. They either steal them or buy them from the smugglers on the Monterry Express.

baning guns only stops law abiding citizens from getting guns, criminals don't care about the law.every citizen should be allowed to protect themselves.

And the next time law enforcement tries to confiscate weapons they MUST be met with the combined force of any and all patriots that can respond. Those law enforcement people had a duty to uphold the Constitution and when they decide to disarm the people the people must disarm them.

If government was actually looking out for our safety, I'd say God Bless America! And the criminals do in fact care about the law: where guns are banned, that's where they go for an easy mark, it's safer, they don't have to worry about getting shot!.

Some guns are alright, some aren't for citizens-no citizen needa a gun that will shoot 15-20 or 25 rounds to defend themselves.

I think you're right Darla, and as I've said no U.S. citizen needs a weapon that shoots 20-25 or 30 rounds to defend themselves those kind of weapons should be used in war only.

your wrong. as it is right now. we need to be able to deffend ourself against any and all enemies foriegn or domestic. if they have it we need to have it. they have smart bombs and all i get is a semi auto? does that seem like a fair fight? every us citzen should have the right to carry as much ammo as they can hold. there is so much crap goin on w/the ndaa and agenda 21. were on the verge of civil war. and they want to disarm us?! i dont know of anyone that can fire a SEMI auto that fast. i...

James, it is your choice to not own a gun just like it is my right to own whatever gun I so choose. The Second Amendment clearly states, "the right to keep and bear arms, shall NOT be infringed." I do not know how else to explain this to you. Since I believe you remember, what about the Japanese Americans in the 1940's? Since everyone who registers a gun in America checks what race they are, it was easy for the government to take away their guns and them place them into camps because of the...

History repeats itself if we allow it to happen, and I for one knowing that gun control has killed 170 million people in the last 100 years would die before I let it happen in America.

So if the couple in Texas only needed 15 rounds against those thugs that came to their home,do you think they would be alive today Mr Moore. You do not know how many rounds you need,even an LEO will tell you that.

We own a handgun and intend on purchasing another before the government changes the laws. We live in the country, and we believe we have the right to protect ourselves considering the times we are living in. I pray to God for protection and hope we never have to be put in that position. But we must be allowed our 2nd amendment rights, including all the other amendments our forefathers wrote for us....even into the future times.

Gun free zones are an infringment of my Second Amendment, punish the criminals on the street not those defending themselves from them or is it high time to get the criminals out of Washington DC?

No permission required! NWO republidemoncrats want U.S. Unarmed for their collapse. Their stolen tax dollar weapons of mass destruction against U.S. is stockpiles, drones, tanks, bullets, missiles. Guns are mere pea shooters comparatively!
