My Line In The Sand Is Drawn Here!

What most people fail to realize (because they are not taught it) is that the match that ignited America’s War for Independence was not excessive taxes, or the lack of representation, or trade restrictions, or the lack of trial by jury (as important as these issues were). The match that ignited America’s War for Independence was ATTEMPTED GUN CONFISCATION.

On April 19, 1775, British troops, some 800 strong, were dispatched to Concord, Massachusetts, to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock and to seize a cache of weapons known to be stored at Concord. When Dr. Joseph Warren sent Paul Revere to warn Pastor Jonas Clark (in whose home Adams and Hancock were staying) that the Crown’s troops were on their way to arrest the two men and seize the guns at Concord, he alerted his male congregants. About 60-70 men from the Church of Lexington stood armed on Lexington Green awaiting the Red Coats.

Upon spotting the citizen militia, a British officer demanded the men throw down their arms. They refused; and the British troops immediately opened fire. Eight of the Minutemen were instantly killed. The colonists returned fire in self-defense, and the shot was fired that was heard ’round the world. By the time the troops arrived at the Concord Bridge, just a few miles away, hundreds of colonists were waiting for them with muskets in hand, and the rest, as they say, is history...

Huh? You live in very special universe where stupidity and ignorance is a celebration? It has been known for quite some time now that opposing armies will disarm the enemy upon capture – your insight is a spectacular revelation ... of your own stupidity!

You really lead a pathetic exsistence, although a few posters thought you were gay, you are just a dumb biotch. But we could be wrong and you are a queer that has no life but to sit behind a keyboard and try to sell your propaganda laced bullsh^t allday. We have a pickup bed full of coyotes that we shot with our sportrifles this evening, and a whole bunch of bacon on a great night with the kids. Get a life because our sportrifles are going nowhere but our hands and safes. Kind of led to believe with the time you have that we the taxpayers pay for your pathetic life. Fat ugly and lazy...

Here are your gun runners.

Operation Gun Walker

"What if I told you that the Obama Administration’s Justice Department authorized the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (the “ATF”) to rig gun background checks so gun runners could “walk” guns into Mexico after clearing an instant background check at various gun stores in the U.S.?

What if I told you that the Department of Justice and ATF did this to try to build a picture of Mexican Drug Cartels so the cartels could be taken out?

What if I told you that the ATF’s authorization of this operation, called by them “Fast and Furious“, corresponded to an increase in gun violence by drug cartels in Mexico?

What if I told you the Obama Administration never told the Mexican Government — making this a clear act of war under any host of international precedents?

What if I told you that at least one, and maybe more, American border patrol agents were murdered by guns passed over the border with the permission of the ATF?

And what if I told you that the Department of Justice and ATF decided to use the gun running they authorized, enabled, and oversaw as evidence in the Obama Administration’s fight to crack down on gun sales in the United States?"

"Surveillance video obtained by CBS News shows suspected drug cartel suppliers carrying boxes of weapons to their cars at a Phoenix gun shop. The long boxes shown in the video being loaded in were AK-47-type assault rifles."

Since this article was done two of our border agents were murdered with some of these guns. Even a Mexican beauty queen was murdered with one along with approx. 60 others Mexicans. Obama issued an EO to prevent info from coming out against Eric Holder who incidently is today sitting on VP Bidens panel discussing gun control.

Feds powers a limited to numbered fixed powers, the rest of the powers belong to the people. If Maryland wants to have 100% background checks for intrastate firearms transfers, that's Maryland's dealio. It's not an authority of the federal government to regulate those transfers.

I didn't say the did (or they didn't), spoogebreath.

If you come up for air once in a while- even if you read this thread- you would find out that there are fifty states with fifty legislatures... and many (if not all) are looking at transfer of of deadly weapons.

REquiring background checks on all...

I know, it will make it harder for you felons and mental cases to buy guns.
