Reading some of these comments coming from the NRA convention in Houston has pushed me to a point where I must vent. Honestly, the insanity being spewed by these people would be laughable if millions of Americans didn’t agree with them.

Have you heard about the new NRA President? Holy crap, talk about a complete jackass. This man is an attorney for a firm which specializes in defending gun manufacturers, has called Obama a “fake President”(aka a birther) and has said the Civil War was “the war of northern aggression”—you know, what supporters of the Confederacy often called it.

I mean come on. The NRA has a new birther President who thinks President Obama isn’t an American, thinks the Confederate states had the right to own slaves (apparently Lincoln was a tyrant) and believes all Americans should be military trained to fight against tyranny.
I would have some witty remark to follow that up with, but I don’t think it’s necessary. This level of crazy speaks for itself.

But what I will do is repeat something I’ve said plenty of times. President Obama does not want to take away your damn guns.

No, the the Second Amendment isn’t under attack.
Under the plan Obama spoke of back in January you could still own thousands of guns. You could still own bullets. Hell, you could still own semi-automatics. There was absolutely no limit on how many guns you could own.

What Obama proposed was the same assault weapon ban we had until just a few years ago. Did the world end, and tyranny take over, because of this ban? No. It’s the very same ban George W. Bush has been quoted as saying he felt should have been renewed in 2004. A ban on the same weapons George H. Bush and Ronald Reagan both said had no place in the hands of ordinary civilians.

President Obama also said he supported a ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. You don’t need more than 10 bullets to hunt or defend yourself—and if you do, you probably shouldn’t be operating any kind of firearms to begin with.
Sorry sport shooters, I can’t support high-capacity magazines simply for sport shooting. Ranges can be allowed to own these for sport purposes, but they shouldn’t be privately owned.

He also supported universal background checks. What kind of delusional fools oppose a background check for all gun purchases? Well, we know which Senators oppose this law. Thankfully over 80% of Americans don’t. But seriously, you can’t even debate against universal background checks and if you try, you’re just proving your own ignorance.

Another thing he proposed was funding for enhanced resources to prevent mentally ill people from obtaining guns. Again, what imbecile opposes actions that seek to prevent mentally ill
individuals from obtaining dangerous weapons?

He said we need increased funding for more law enforcement officers, funding to provide researchers the resources to study why people do these heinous acts and funding for schools to have armed security on campus if they so wish.
None of that is an attack on the Second Amendment, it’s called using common sense.

Just because our Constitution gives us a right, doesn’t mean that right can’t have problems that need solutions. I support the right for gun ownership as a gun owner myself, but I also support sensible regulations of that right to try and prevent some of these horrific acts of violence.

The AWB that sunsetted in 2004 did nothing to reduce crime in any significant manner. What it did do was to create a huge demand for 'assault weapons'. Prior to the AWB,'assault weapons' not particulary common. Now, there are millions of them in circulation. There are many more that have been sold only because of the talk of banning them.

Your headline and your post are not in agreement. There are lots of people that want Australian and British style gun control. I am sure Obama would support that is he thought there was support for it in the U.S. and there was a chance at passage. He is somewhat of a realist on this issue.

very true. folks like mayor glover in shreveport, la., Dianne Feinstein(supporter of many gun ban bills), and in that group is one late President Nixon.
.
folks in illinois http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/... On Wednesday, the Illinois Senate Public Health Committee, led by anti-gun, Senate President John Cullerton and backed by Governor Patrick Quinn, passed House Bills 1263 and 815. These measures, if passed would ban nearly all common firearms and magazines, and institute new shooting range restrictions.
.
http://www.davekopel.com/2A/Mags/WillYouBeSaf... If banning guns worked, Washington, D.C. and New York would be the safest cities in the country. Since 1976, it's been illegal in Washington, D.C. to own any handguns or to keep any type of gun in your home unlocked and fully assembled. However, Washington D.C. is the "murder capital of the United States."
.....New York City has had severe gun control laws since 1911, yet it also ranks among the most dangerous places in the country. In both cities, violent criminals can easily obtain the most deadly weapons on the streets within minutes.
.....A national gun ban won't help. With an estimated 220+ million guns now in the U.S., an un-policeable 12,000 miles of borders and coastlines, and the world's largest stock of precision machine tools, criminals will always be able to buy, steal, or make guns and ammunition.
.
seems that someone forgot that there are unfortunately folks who want gun bans. in some cases, total gun bans. otherwise there would be no gun bans. folks who wants women to be dishonoured thru rape. since many a rapist has backed off when his intended victim used a firearm. even as just as a show. since criminals do want to save their own skin.

The title of the thread is: "Enough! Nobody Wants to Take Away Your Damn Guns!"

That is a complete lie.

It is the agenda of the Left. Just like it has been the agenda of every totalitarian regime in the history of mankind.

I love it when the low information voters respond with either a personal attack against the individual that delivered the message, or an attack against the source of the message, without disproving the facts contained in the message.

It shows how weak and ignorant the low information voters actually are. They can not win based on facts, so they attack the message carrier.

Racist,

In classic form, you create a Thread which you cut/paste, you make NO POINTS, and then attempt to defend the iddiocy of the Thread with your One-Liner Non Responses to the POINTS made by Smart Posters.

You are a real special kinda Defective!

(Smart Liberal is nicer than me, that is why I cut/paste his tactful response, I just choose to call you Fauching Idddiiioots, Idddiiots!)

The FBI data notes that Washington, D.C. had the highest murder rate per 100,000 people. The nation’s capital saw 12 gun murders per 100,000 in 2011. DC also finished first in gun-related robberies per 100,000 people – with 242.56.
In 1976, the District of Columbia required all guns be registered, banned new handguns and required guns at home to be stored and dissembled or locked up. Unfortunately, the draconian measures — which lasted more than three decades — didn’t had the desired effect.
Journalist and attorney Jeffrey Scott Shapiro explains the not-so-surprising result in an op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal on Jan. 15, 2013:
The gun ban had an unintended effect: It emboldened criminals because they knew that law-abiding District residents were unarmed and powerless to defend themselves. Violent crime increased after the law was enacted, with homicides rising to 369 in 1988, from 188 in 1976 when the ban started. By 1993, annual homicides had reached 454.
[...]
Since the gun ban was STRUCK DOWN, murders in the District have steadily gone down, from 186 in 2008 to 88 in 2012, the lowest number since the law was enacted in 1976.
More guns in the hands of law abiding citizens. Less crime.

Or conversely, extremely stringent gun laws, as in DC, and Chicago = more gun deaths. In the case of Chicago, way more.
