Um..OK.

Vietnam and Somolia are but two in our recent past where 'small' guns in the hands of a very determined enemy caused us with 'big' guns a lot of death and grief.

Just why has there never been a mass shooting at like, say, a shooting range - or a gun show?

Personally, I see no reason for the general public to own an assault weapon, but what I think should be done legislatively, is to outlaw large capacity magazines...and I believe the ban on these should never have been allowed to lapse. I see NOTHING in that opinion that takes anyone's second amendment rights....but it might save a life or two.

A Letter From The Special Forces Community Concerning The Second Amendment - 1100 Green Berets Signed this Letter

We have a list of all their names and unlike any MSM outlets we can confirm that over 1100 Green Berets did sign. The list includes Special Forces Major Generals & Special Forces Command Sergeants Major down to the lowest ranking “Green Beret”.

The letter stands for itself.

Very good---- it does seem that all types of gun free zones have been attacked lately. Maybe the author of the following blog will get a new idea.

I know some have reading comprehension problems, so brought my comment forward....The key words are "IF" and "COULD" ... I know those are a big words !

The medical profession oversees it's members through the AMA, the lawyers through the Bar, IF responsible gun owners do not want more government involvement....perhaps it is time for them to get together and create a system like those..... Maybe the NRA should divert some of the money they use to lobby congress to help set up such an entity.
Those of you who wish to do NOTHING, will see the general public turn against you if these incidents keep coming. There are a bunch of Americans who hug their assault weapons and high capacity magazines before going to bed at night....but there are a lot more who hug their kids and grandkids, and it would pay dividends for the former group to remember that.

Haven't you seen the studies that gives reliable results showing that the ban on these (so-called-assault) weapons did nothing to prevent mass murders.

In addition to that, The term 'assault weapon' is only distinguished from other semi-automatic weapons by its hand grip and folding stock. The 30 or 40 round magazines (while I do not use nor see a need for them) only add one to two more seconds of not shooting while changing a clip. Someone one on this forum stated that these few seconds would be time enough for someone to get him. Yeah, if they had a gun.

Why do you dem/libs want to ban guns and not enforce the laws on the books. It is a mystery. Check out Chicago. 99.9% of all gun deaths were not the result of an assault weapon. Lets get rid of all pistols. Guess I could turn mine in and then go out on the street and pickup another. Tennessee already does background checks far better than the FBI. I know: you just want the guns and a preceived saftey.

It's ridiculous to hold the freedom, health and happiness of the many hostage to the potentially bad actions of the few.

For instance, it doesn't take a genius to realize that James E. Holmes, the man charged in the shooting rampage at the Aurora, Colo., premiere of "The Dark Night Rises," was at least somewhat inspired by the Batman movies. The evil freak dyed his hair orange and called himself "The Joker."

But hundreds of millions of people saw one of the Batman movies. Let's imagine those movies are 100% to blame for the Aurora shooting. Even under that ridiculous assumption, that would mean that something like 99.999999999% of consumers of those products were unharmed or unaffected. Similarly, the number of law-abiding gun owners dwarfs the number of mass murderers. And guns actually stop crimes too.

The same problem exists on the mental health side of the equation. We all know people who fit the description of one of these shooters before they actually killed anyone. Loners, socially awkward, etc. How many of those people turn into mass murderers? Not many. How do you propose weeding out the potential mass killers without horribly mistreating the innocent?

President Obama has said that anything is worth it "if even one life can be saved." Citing Newtown in his inaugural address Monday, he said that our journey as a nation will not be complete until we know our children are "always safe from harm."

First, common sense tells us that's ridiculously impossible. Moreover, a Nestorite standard would not only do terrible violence to the 1st, 2nd and 5th Amendments, it would indisputably hold the freedom, health and happiness of the many hostage to the potentially bad actions of the few.

Now...

Most people can eat peanuts; a relative few of us cannot. If the approach espoused by anti-second amendment gun-control zealots concerning "assault rifles" is to be taken - here's what they would do: ban peanuts for everyone to prevent anyone from being harmed.

I watched them all and did not hear that statement. Have you got a quote on that or was it what you wanted to hear. Yes they applauded and I do to the implications that the gov. tells you that you have to buy healthcare and can tax(penalize)you if you
don't. By what you said, I just stated the same thing to your ears. you dem/libs are good. If the repubs. have any kind of chance to turn this around, they are going to have to get down in the sh_t with you and start throwing it as well. May the best sh_t ball win.

Can't afford an AR-15? Think they look to scary? Worried what your Dem-Lib coworkers will think while you cling to your guns & religion?

Uncle Sam will be more than happy to sell you a field grade, surplus Springfield M1 Garand via the Civilian Marksmanship Program. They'll even ship to your doorstep!

They are a thing of beauty. You will be owning a piece of Americana. Shoot it,enjoy it and I guarantee it will put a smile on your face.
