Jim Brady's job WAS to take a bullet for the president if need be. The man knew the risks of his job. But suddenly, when he actually had to make that sacrifice, he's the poster child of gun control.
You know, at least he had a brain injury that led him to construe gun control as the solution to gun crime.
What's your excuse?
Gun control is not the solution to gun crime.

I don't know of ANYBODY who wants to prevent people from having guns for hunting, sports or personal protection.

Nobody needs a weapon that can shoot 30 shells in second for hunting, sports or personal protection.

You pay no attention to what I write. You are listening to voices that have nothing at all to do with what I have actually said.

So we're done here.

NO, it was NOT Jim Brady's "job" to take a bullet for the president.

He was Reagan's PRESS SECRETARY, not a Secret Service agent

Again, the second amendment that allows us to possess those firearms has absolutely nothing to do with hunting, sports, or self protection.
The second amendment is to prevent this, courtesy of Fed Up:
A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. >From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were round
ed up and exterminated
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends.
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
IT'S A NO BRAINER!
DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.
Spread the word everywhere you can that you are a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!

It's time to speak loud before they try to silence and disarm us.
You're not imagining it, history shows that governments always manipulate tragedies to attempt to disarm the people~

Jim Brady and his wife know quite a lot about gun violence.
Yes, indeed. You want personal/up-close experience? Jim and Sarah have it.
You are done here. You have been outed for not accepting legitimate news and then using opinion pieces as your sources.

Nowhere in the second amendment is hunting, sports or personal protection mentioned.

Guns potential to spew lead isn't mentioned in the second amendment.

There should no limits on types of guns owned by the sane, lawfull, general public.

By the way, I do not refer to links from Teabigot morons like you. If you want to say something to me, say it and stop hiding behind website referrals because you are unable to communicate properly.

Yeah I deal with liberals like you all the time.

If you can't refute facts you sling insults. That seems to be quite often.

If I say something you don't agree with, or don't want to hear, you want proof.

If I say something you don't agree with or don't want to hear, and provide links to my source, you say I have to hide behind referrals.

You are afraid to be wrong, so you refuse to look at links that provide proof of my statements.

You will do your best to convince everyone the links are unreliable. Even when they are published government statistics.

I have no affiliation with the Republican Party, the Ku Klux Klan, or the Tea Party. FYI, the Republican and Democrat parties swapped roles long ago.

BTW, you aren't fooling anyone with your moniker. You are simply trying to convince everyone, as well as yourself, that you are big and bad. In reality, you are more than likely a puddin.

No, I lobby to fight more pending gun laws. And I have already stocked up on high capacity mags if worse comes to worse. And just today, I bought some more high capacity H&K USP and AR-15 magazines as a bonus. And you can thank Zerobama, the mass shooters, and some of the jacka** gun owners who voted for Obama for the inspiration.

None of the weapons used in the recent mass killings are able to do that. And you are you to decide what someone "needs"? You're quite the frustrated control freak.

Sorry Jason, you did not get the point I was trying to get across. If the poster I was responding to would lobby for gun control using the logic ? in his post , gun owners would not have to worry. I wish all anti gun people would see the downright lunatic stuff their fellow gun haters post.
