Is the government really going to take away our right to bear arms?

everybody thought it was great that the new sex offender laws were passed. unfortunately, they destroyed the constitutional rights of everyone involved. they resentenced all sex offenders without the benefit of due process. now the government can do just about whatever it wants too. the passing of the new sex offender laws pretty much buried the constitution. the sad part is there was nothing wrong with the laws that were in place for sex offenders. they play on your fears!!!

What new sex offender law? And why then is that SP idiot out on the street? I'd rather have them have more time, guns aren't allowed in prison. Anyway, sex offenders don't give a sh!t about anyones rights but their own.

the sex offenders were the way the goverment got around the constitution with public approvall. of course evryone knows that x-fellons are'nt allowed to own guns."what" the point was that the government got away with resentencing over 200,000 people without due process which is the basis of fundamentle justice in this country. in other words, for you challenged individuals, the government can do what ever it wants to do. and so if the government can do this to so many people then the constitution is worthless. you all better get ready for some crowd control.

So former sex offenders who are married and have families shouldn't be afforded the same rights to protect themselves from crime as families of as-yet-uncaught sex offenders?

First they came for the sex offenders...

You do not have a "right" to keep and bear arms. This right is supposed to be one of the "inalienable" rights, given by The Creator and protected by The Constitution and the Rule of Law. But since we've tacitly agreed to exchange our liberty for the promise of a little safety, we've lost this former right.

Think I'm wrong? Bear your arms visible on your hip or slung over your shoulder. See how quickly Officer Friendly becomes unfriendly.

If you have a chance, buy the book "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross. Required reading for all who love Liberty and especially for those American's who mistakenly believe we are free.

every person has the constitutional right to bear arms...regardless the constitution says nothing about felonies or other crimes. the constitutional right has been taken from them by liberals. a person can get a felony for a non vilent crime and have their right taken away...A person can be 18 and have sex with a 17 year old and be considered a sex offender does that mean that person shouldnt be able to protect themselves? It was the 2nd item that the founding fathers put on the costitution so they must have thought it was pretty important!!

Amen Brother (or sister). The second amendment was important to them so that citizens could, at the last resort, overtake the government and reestablish the US. Nowadays, well, you know what that is considered. I love my guns too!

Remember the minute men they were citzens of our country that took up arms against the english on a minutes notice,now days I beleive our own goverment has opressed our own people so terribely that they need to take law.abiding citizens guns away. Also if our goverment military could not stop foreign invasion and our military failed, citizens must have their own protection just like in Red OCT. story,also police does not always protect us as in home invasions store robberies and personal crimes such as domestics people walk right on through restraining orders just look at the local news pappers or local media or world news.

In several countries and i cant remember which ones they are the law requires citizens to have atleast one fire arm in their homes the crime rate in these countries is nearly zero.....What we have in America is the liberals in office trying to take our rights away and scare us into thinking we need big govt to protect us...when what we really need is to be able to police and protect ourselves.

Police show up after the crime normally. I am sure they would like to always have the heads up so they know where to be but ...

Anyway, the Minute Men would, now, be declared an anti-government, survivalist terrorist group and the gov eventually would go Ruby Ridge on 'em. Things just aren't the same. I highly doubt our forefathers imagined some of the modern weapons and the people whose hands they are in.

BTW... Executive orders seem to really get over on Constitutional rights I hear.

You're so confused. The reason you don't know what country you're talking about is because you don't know what the hell you're talking about. Firstly, you're attempting to bring the policy of that evil socialist european nation known as Switzerland into the conversation but want to avoid using it as a model for america. We all know that only Greece and Spain are allowed to be compared to america by right wing nutters who preach doom and gloom. We can't go mentioning the successful socialist democracies LIKE SWITZERLAND. Secondly, the law you're talking about is in reference to the men and women who served in the swiss armed forces to keep their military issued weapons with them. This does not extend to everybody. Although the swiss do have lax gun laws to go along with their evil socialism that allows them a better standard of living for their citizens with more economic mobility better schools better health care etc. We'll forget about all of that though. All you want are the gun laws. Which only apply to vets.

The assault weapons ban is just a distraction, they are going to make it illegal for private citizens to own over $100.00 worth of gold and/or silver, could be less. All these people are buying gold and/or silver preparing for the fall of the dollar. They confiscated gold during The Great Depression, large companies are selling their stockpile of gold and silver, wonder why? Do they know soon government is coming after it? The government is manipulating the skyrocketing price in gold and silver, a bubble if you will to drain all the wealth from people who think it's a safe investment, well safe until King Obama signs one of his famous executive orders making it illegal for the good of the country. King Obama takes your gold and your left with your mouth open in amazement and confusion wondering why?

While I'm hoping the foreseeable ban on the military style weapons help in the long run , I think it will have little or no effect.

If we want to deal seriously with multiple-victim public shootings, it's time that we acknowledge a common feature of these attacks: With just a single exception, the attack in Tucson last year, every public shooting in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed since at least 1950 has occurred in a place where citizens are not allowed to carry their own firearms. Had some citizens been armed, they might have been able to stop the killings before the police got to the scene. In the Newtown attack, it took police 20 minutes to arrive at the school after the first calls for help.

Military style weapons are only similar to what the military uses, because of cosmetics. No self respecting military, will have the semi automatic versions of these weapons, that some of us civilians own. Yet we will not even be allowed that, if you want to buy one in the future apparently.

The biggest mass school shooting in U.S. history (Va Tech)... involved a 9mm and a 22 caliber used by the assailant, with both being pistols.

So no, I see how this move solves much of anything. In the case of the little idiot that was evil enough and took his own mother's registered firearm, killed her, and went after a bunch of kids? Maybe. They might have been saved if this ban was in effect.

But as for the rest of us,you have a greater chance of drowning in a child sized pool than this particular incident ever happening, statistically. But it DID happen. So these weapons are undoubtedly responsible, and not the idiots that pull the triggers.

How many people were prosecuted for this during the depression? None you say? Why are you worried about all your gold? Are you a leprechaun-american and afraid they'll try to steal your pot? As I recall the gold standard was abolished, by oh who was that, oh yeah, Nixon. God it must suck being so paranoid. Next thing you know you'll be posting that the guy in the mirror is secretly plotting to replace you in the real world. FYI, he is looking for a way to escape but it's more because waking up to such a sight every morning is making him suicidal.

LOL...good luck penetrating the fog that surrounds gun nuts waiting to mix it up with the federal government, or blacks, or muslims, whoever's trying to take their stuff or steal their liberty this week. The gun industry is making a killing off these idiots, and the gun lobby is working overtime to insure that it never ends.
