AMEN!! If more people would legally carry, and buy guns for their home. The theft for pill money might slow down. My theory is: If you come in my house uninvited, Im not aiming for the leg, one in the head or two in the chest. We're not talking .22 either!

In my opinion, if I'm at home I'm as far as I can go for safety. Don't need no stinkin permit.

The Obama admin. is trying to get at our guns by enacting a treaty thru the UN. It will give them the right to take all guns from all people. Write your congressman and senator..stand up and be counted, if not then they will do as they please. The dems have been after guns for as long as I can remember, if it weren't for the NRA they probably would already be gone. Just another in a long list of every thing common sense wise to vote Obama and all his cronies out before they wreck the country so bad no one will think of us as being free any longer--because we won't be!

This post is a BLATEN LIE. You fu*f!ng right wing tea bagging sons-of-bitches keep spreading you hate everywhere.
NO ONE is out to take anyone's GUNS. If you get off the hate trip you will find that the repukes are going to keep all you teabaggers slaves to BIG BUSINESS because you are too stupid from missing school that you don't have enough intelligence to comprehend the written word when it's in front of your nose.
Keep on worshiping the repukes and let them keep you on minimum wage forever dumb ass.
In short:dumb assholes such as you should NEVER be allowed around any gun, let alone own one. Guns are NOT for stupid people.

You really need to get a life and look at where all the BS about someone taking your guns away comes from.
You have a constitutional right to own firearms and for them to take them away some other country would have to invade us and be put under their control.

This old BS about losing your guns comes from the republican party every time a Democrat President is elected.
This time around it was started by that alcoholic drug Head glen beck.
It really came to the forefront when Reagan was running for president and hasn't got any better with the republicans.

If you take notice with elections the republican always manage to get one of the 3 G's on the ballot to get the republican voters to the polls. Don't take my word for it--watch it for yourself.

I meant to ask you in the other post.

What proof can you show me that Obama is trying to take our guns away.
Show me one piece of proof of it.
Just one reliable link that is NOT linked to the fox news people.

I'm not interested in what hannity,billo and beck has told you, so answer my question

SHOW ME PROOF. simple, just show proof of what you say.
this shit you spew will not work anymore without proof.
You will have Obama for President again in 2012
Where did your country go. I still have the same one I was born in.
However, it has improved greatly since we took BUSHIE, cheney and that bunch of crud out of office. Oh, don't bring god into this since he didn't have anything to do with it.

Now , one more time

SHOW ME THE PROOF of what you say.

I am still looking for the proof you think that you need. And exactly where is your proof that he is not planning on passing such a thing? I sure as hell hope he is not our president in 2012. Shit we are all going broke now. AS you stated some of your above posts, about being stupid because we didnt (or whoever) didnt go to school. I have a college degree and i am by no means stupid. He is trying pass this bill right under everyones noses by piggy backing the bill. Since you dont want fox news i will continue to fnd something better. Until then you keep believing whatever you want. And as for not bringing God into this well you can kiss my ass on that. Obama didnt even get sweared in with the bible, he used the Koran. HE WONT EVEN recite the pledge of alegiance. God is showing us what is going to happen if we as a nation dont change. He may be the president but he is no better or smarter than i. He just gets others to do his dirty work for him.

I'm just like a jury as far as people saying this and that, SHOW ME THE PROOF! I watched the swearing in and his hand was on the BIBLE plain and simple.
I don't think for one second that you went to college for you can't even spell at a third grade level, and I damn sure know that God has nothing to do with your hate.
Again , don't give me a bunch of your BULLSHIT without PROOF.
You are another loud mouth TEABAGGING lying son-of-a-b!tch that is pissed because a black man is your President..
And yes,he will be Re-elected in 2012 so get used to the idea of eight years.

First of all i am not a son-of-a-bitch. And i have nothing against a black man being the president. I dont care what color he or anyone is as long as they do their damn job and i dont think he is. I am not hating on anyone i am stating my opinion.
As for my college, I had a 3.75gpa. I can spell.
Your right God has nothing to do with my hate because i dont have any hate in my heart. I am a God fearing American. So why dont you get off your high horse and get a clue. everyone is entitled to their own opinion whether you like it or not. And again you want everyone elses proof, where is yours?
Those are my last thoughts on this subject and with you.

Go back and read post # 7 asshole. You came at me I didn't go at you. You made a claim that Obama was going to take your guns away.
So I said to you "PROVE IT".. You stated it as a fact and NOT as a OPINION, therefore you lie yet again.And to lie is a sin,GOT THAT--a SIN.
You can;t prove it you do what all lying teabaggers do.. YOU LIE,YOU LIE.
if you can't prove it, then you are a lying son-of-a-b!tch.
You do not have a 3.75 gpa.
You may have gone to a College football game but you never went to class.

Now unless you have proof about all you claim that Obama is going to do to take your Constitutional rights away, then you are what I called you.
I have nothing else for you third grader.
Go back to school so you will be able to get a job that will get you off welfare and food stamps.

Only reason he hasn't been strong on the gun issue is the economy.
IF he gets another term, you'll be eating your words, which I'm sure you'll conveniently forget by then.

You are as dumb as the other bastard. Obama HAS NOT introduce any bill to take anyone's guns away. So I am correct and you are wrong with your tea bagging bullshit..What someone writes in a ray doesn't make it a bill of law. Obama has NO BILL before congress to take away guns. It will take a change of the constitution to do it and that shit won't happen
