Nine people died in the rampage? It is only seven counting the shooter/stabber. Artistic license with the media I guess.

America needs to nut up and abort the Second Amendment already. It is barbaric and insane.

Many say the same about the first amendment

But thank God that there are checks and balances preventing nut jobs from taking people's rights

I have it on good authority that the anti-gun movement is a product of Muslims.
They can't take over until the guns have been removed.

Seems that us owning guns is the only thing stopping them from owning the US.

The antis are too stoooopid to know they are fighting for Muslims.

Did you ever see the interview with the Japanese commander after ww11 when he was asked why they did not head to Ca after Pearl Harbor?

He stated it would have been impossible to invade the USA as Americans were armed

As a long time gun owner and firm believer in the RKBA, as well as a Jew and a strong supporter of Israel, I find this theory to be simply not believable.

The Islamic population of the US is estimated less than 3 million (less than 1% of the entire US population) so even if the entire non-Muslim population were disarmed (including police and military) they would have as much chance of controlling the US population by force as the Phoenix Fire Department has of invading China.

Add to this, American Muslims are by far the least militant as a community in the world. Militant mosques exist in countries like the UK, Australia, Sweden, France, etc. However, they are clearly not existent in the US.

No, Virginia, the anti-gun community (I won't call it a movement because it clearly isn't moving anywhere but backwards) in the US is mostly made up of fuzzy-thinking leftists who, mistakenly, feel that by removing firearms from the US populace they will put an end to whatever kind of violence they dislike -- apparently, they're not keen of domestic violence (unless the victim is unborn) but OK with violent demonstrations, car accidents and drug overdoses. It's really hard to know definitively what bothers them.

Another big factor that, for a leftist, the idea that someone might be enjoying something that they themselves don't like (be it guns, smoking, driving SUVs or drinking large sodas) produces in them an itch that cannot be scratched until that something is outlawed. It's a visceral feeling that prohibits them from even considering that other people might be made happy by things they personally abhor (in much the same way American fundamentalists abhor gay marriage).

No, you don't have to vilify a religious community in the US (something that in itself is very un-American) to understand the anti-gun community in the US. Just look within our very own spoil sport community.

You're forgetting one little thing. Their Quran specifically dictates the elimination of all non Muslims.

And the Xtian bible specifically forbids eating cheeseburgers in three separate verses. Is McDonald's out of business?

McDonald's is safe......they don't sell real food.

What I eat won't kill anyone but me, what Muslims teach will kill us all.

Don't be so easily duped, the radicals all entered other countries under the guise of being peaceful Muslims.

Now look at them.....

You need to nut up, shut up, read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, then emigrate to Iran.
