Itís encouraging to see so many States and citizens standing up for their rights. The Obama administration must be somewhat shaken by the nationwide reaction to his efforts to become the first socialist dictator of the United States. He has been pushing his socialist agenda fervently, having been given a second wind with his winningólegally or not--the second election. If he is forced to back down on gun control, his next step, however, could be a desperate step, for he has to obey his masters and press onward to their goal.

Thousands join pro-gun rallies in state capitals
The recurring message from state capitals: Responsible gun owners should be left alone.
"Thousands of gun rights supporters gathered at state capitols around the country Saturday to rally against new laws to regulate firearms proposed by President Obama in the wake of last month's school shooting in Connecticut.
The crowds included people of all ages, some waving flags and holding signs saying "Don't Tread on Me" and "Stand behind the Second Amendment."

A recurring message was that responsible gun owners should be left alone.

The current administration wants to control every aspect of our lives," Alabama Agriculture Commissioner John McMillan said to the crowd at the state capitol in Montgomery. "We need to use our state motto ó'Dare to defend our rights.' "
The rallies were part of a grass-roots effort, called Guns Across America, initiated by Texas resident Eric Reed. The group's Facebook page listed plans for protests in 46 states.
Police in Connecticut said about 1,000 people showed up on the capitol grounds in Hartford, about 50 miles from the site of last month's mass shooting at Newtown's Sandy Hook Elementary School. Demonstrators there urged state and federal authorities not to introduce new restrictions on gun ownership as task forces created by the Legislature and Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy consider changes to state gun laws.

In Albany, N.Y., several thousand people aimed their protests at Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who this week signed legislation that puts a tighter ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Protesters chanted "Freedom," "U.S.A." and "Cuomo's Gotta Go." Some gun owners said they are being unfairly targeted by the new law.

Nice to see you back, Bonapart. I was looking for something about the anti-gun control protests and came across this one. Itís great to know there are so many all over the nation who are standing up for their rights instead of just lying down and letting Obama walk on them. Perhaps there is hope for the nationís survival, after all.
All these people should be commended for their courage in speaking out. Our politicians in Washington will hopefully take note of these demonstrations and stop cowering before Obama, as they have done. If not, they should be voted out of office in the next election.
