Should we get rid of cars since they kill more children then guns annually? Latest available data in 2010 identified that there were 1,210 traffic deaths among children ages 0 to 14 years. In addition, 211(17%) of those deaths involved an alcohol-impaired driver. With the latest liberal votes to legalize marijuana impaired driving deaths of young children is likely to increase. Cars kill more of our young children then guns. Should they be banned?

Ban automobiles, knives, including butter knives, bicycles, pools, lighters, matches. This is getting ridiculus. Open your eyes people its plain and simple, There are evil people. Sick people that are just being pushed out of the mental hospitals because the state would rather close that down and have them commit a crime and keep putting them in prison.

The U.S.A. has the highest rate of gun ownership in the world. APP. 90 guns per 100 people. England for example has APP> 6 per 100.As a result 31, 347 Americans were killed by guns in 2009. In England during that same time the No. of people killed by guns was 39. Many English people have never seen a real gun. They don't feel that they are missing anything. When the second ammendment was written we needed a militia. And people neeeded to be armed. They had no protection, against Indian attacks,(not a problem anymore), Bears ( ok, if you live where this is a problem, by all means get a shot gun), And yes to protect themselves against an opressive government, if it came to that. But, if you think you are going to hold off a platoon of Marines with your little pop gun, well good luck with that. BTW I am an ex Marine with combat experience and I wouldn't have a gun in my house. You gun fanatics are living in a fantasy world. I say f#ck the second ammendment. We need to protect our kids.

You swore an oath as a US Marine to defend the constitution. I don't think it's a pick and choose oath, do you?

You're an embarrassment to the Corps.

Yea you ae right lets just rewrite the whole constitution and take all of our rights away and let the government tell when we can sh*t. You people are so ridiculus. Banning gus is not going to do anything. The criminals will still find a way to get them. And im sorry but if you think that is going to stop crime your crazy. Home robberies will skyrocket. Criminals will now know that the owner does not have a gun so what are they going to do to me call the lazy cops?? Right now i have several weapons and i would dare anyone to come to my home and attempt to take anything. I will protect my family and home till death. Go ahead try to take my right away. It will start a civil war!!! And i am an ex ARMY RANGER!! HUA!!!!!!!

The constitution needs to be changed. It was designed to be changed. If it wasn't we would still have slaves and women would not be allowed to vote. Were the guys who died to get rid of slavery also an "embarrassment" to you?

Slavery is alive and well in the US just in a differant costume. The rich now control everyone. Middle class low class. If you arent a millionaire then you are a slave to one who is. So again please tell me how you defeated slavery?? Oh and yes the right to vote.... LOL what a joke. Obama wins with less popular votes. So what good is it to vote when the people speak it means nothing so again slavery, right to vote??

That tells me already that you have a problem with authority and in a orderly setting respect for authority is just as important as respect for your common man. Either you are a punk or an idiot or both but best believe even with your guns you are not as safe as you think you are. It seems that you like to brag about your weapons and for that reason the one who will most likely threaten your saftey are the ones who know you best. Wise up macho man before one of your own kids blows his head off by mistake with your safe gun.

He is absolutely, unarguably no Marine or in any involved with the Navy with that defeated-bitch attitude. That's not what we tolerate or teach.

Do you see a pattern emerging here? Most of the pro gun posters seem crazy. An example is that pesky little Topix Troll above who is right now posing as me. Last night he used your screen name to post ugly vicious things. Rush limbaugh just got through blathering about Waco and janet Reno and within a minute this screwball says exactly the same thing. He has no mind of his own. Just a fatlittle Limball running around in his head. God help us if this idiot owns guns. BTW If keeping guns in your house is the road to security, then Nancy Lanza ( the now dead mother of friday's shooter should be the safest person around. She had a regular arsenal in her home.

God shut thefuckup with your ridiculous assuming "everyone is a limbaugh fan" and get yourself a real screename that doesn't show off your 2nd grader wit. What a loser. Your daily rants never make much sense they just show an emotionally needy retard that few people listen to in public crying for attention.

Obama did not need any guns to bomb women and children in Afghanistan.
