The gun banners (perpetually offended idiots) are fascist in nature. They just can't keep their noses out of other's God given rights. They are frustrated control freaks whose opinions mean less to me than dog crap scraped off of my boots.

I'm thinking that Starbucks should post a sign on their premises: "Anti-liberty people are not wanted."

That way, anyone refusing to enter the premises would IMMEDIATELY be identified as 'ANTI-LIBERTY' by everyone else!

Who was the first to coin the phrase "frustrated control freak" ??

It's perfect.

Criminals ignore signs that read "No Guns Allowed" Why prohibit good people from being armed in the store when the bad people will be armed in the store ? Doesn't make any sense.

That sign has the potential to create victims.

I don't know who first coined it. But I'd guess that Highlander, GunShow, Dan in America, Trin, or one of the other older hands here could tell you.

Exactly. Criminals already ignore the laws, so why would a sign stop them from carrying a firearm.

I'll stake that claim Tory II...I started using "frustrated control freak" about 8-9 months ago after a discussion with what we all referred to as "control freaks"...telling him that he really had no control over what others did. His reply was that if that was so, then he really isn't a "control freak" then...He was right...so I responded right...you're just a "frustrated control freak" because you can't control the legal actions of others.

I've been using it ever since because it covers all political affiliations...all genders...and anyone that advocates the infringement or denial of rights of law abiding citizens. Now even some of them,("frustrated control freaks") are using the term themselves.

Same here.

I'd like all these people arrested from crimes against the U.S. Constitution. Any act against the rights of The People is treasonous. Why aren't the anti-terrorist government thugs arresting them and upholding the oath they took?

Don't those activists know they are advertising their defenseless status to the criminals who are certainly taking notice ?

The funny thing is, once they are robbed and realize the government doesn't actually swoop in and save people, they will probably join our side!

FAT CHANCE!

More likely they'd cry for MORE gun-control, even if a gun had not been used.

The U.N. is after Americans’ Second Amendment gun rights — it wants gun
ownership banned in the U.S., and it’s not going to stop until it gets its way.
That’s the warning from the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre, who
reveals that “for the first time in the history of the world, a United Nations conference
has set its sights on global disarmament — disarming citizens worldwide - including
you and me.”
***
“The bottom line is that international gun banners want every gun — every single gun
worldwide — to be under U.N. and government control,” warns LaPierre.“And that
includes your rifle, your shotgun, your handgun, and even family heirlooms that have
been handed down from generation to generation.”2

Interesting that they aren't picketing any of another dozens(perhaps hundreds) of other businesses that follow whatever their state's policy is on guns. Hmm, now I wonder why that is?

UN small arms conference
ends in “total meltdown”
One should not expect the bullies at
the UN to suddenly realize that the governments
they represent are the greatest
threat to individual liberties. Moreover,
they are not only a threat to their own
people, but to us as well.
Rep. Paul has even stated that the
“biggest threat” to gun rights in America
today comes “not from domestic
lawmakers, but from abroad.”
How can he make such an outrageous
statement?
Well, consider that many anti-gun
Democrats in Congress have stopped
pushing extreme gun control measures
after heavy electoral losses!
