Some facts about Israel's gun laws.

1) Israel has a lot fewer guns than we do.

Fact. Israel has 12 times fewer guns per capita than America. Let me say that again: twelve times. In order to reach the same rate of gun ownership here as in Israel, we'd have to get rid of approximately 247 million guns.

2) Israel bans assault rifles.

That law we allowed to expire in 2004? Israel's got it. And no one there argues they need a semi-automatic to hunt ibex.

3) Israel has no individual right to bear arms.

Israel has no Second Amendment. And no one there believes that they need a gun to be safe from the central government. True, this may be because Israel is beset on all sides by enemies bent on its total annihilation rather than, say, our average 2nd amend. nut job. Nevertheless, Israel controls who has a gun much more strongly than the Supreme Court has said our Constitution allows.

4) Israel sharply limits ammunition purchases.

You can't buy more than 50 rounds a year in the Holy Land. The Newtown killer reportedly had hundreds on him when he walked in to Sandy Hook Elementary.

Tell me if I'm wrong, and I'm sure you'll make up something...you should take a hike, through a history book.

Know god=know rights?
Whose god? Whose rights? Should an atheist be starved of the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness for being rational? Do yourself a favor and keep your bs religious beliefs out of the equation or you expose yourself to the rules of all religions. Separation of church and state, you better axe somebody.

History is different as well , do you still believe there was one shooter who killed Kennedy or maybe you believe US Navy boats were attacked in the gulf of Tokin.
Your dumbsh!t limey azz does not have to worry about what I am going to do with my guns unless you want to grow a pair of balls and try to take them.

It is a socialist/communist practice to destroy individual rights in favor of the non-existent "common good". The notion of gun control FORCED down the throats of free individuals who have committed no crime is pure socialist/communist thinking and really doesn't have any place in America. America was founded on individual rights and freedom, not the collective thinking of socialism/communism. Americans know that the common good can only be achieved by free individuals working together, not by crushing individual freedom and rights. The first thing a communist regime does is register firearms and disarm the people........for the common good of course. That is why you will hear people who support the restriction/abrogation of the 2nd amendment referred to a socialist/communist thinkers. Hope this helps.

All this swaggering about gun rights is unnecessary.

I've asked this question at least 15 times in this thread:

Why are you people squealing (and in some cases, quite hysterically) about your gun rights being taken?

It makes no sense and shows how utterly ignorant and paranoid you are when MORE PEOPLE IN THE US OWN MORE GUNS THAN EVER BEFORE.

How have your gun rights been hampered?

You nutjobs need to get a grip.

You're the nutjob who needs to get a grip. Every single time that the 2nd amendment comes under attack there will be true Americans who stand up and fight against that attack. Don't hold your breath waiting for those true Americans to quit the fight just because YOU don't believe there is an attack. If you want to stick your head in the sand and pretend that the there's nothing to worry about, that's your choice. Those who stand and speak out against even an attempt to attack the bill of rights have also made their choice. Isn't freedom of choice a wonderful thing? If you're not careful that freedom too might be infringed upon while you have your head in the sand. The only rights we ever really have in this life are the ones we are willing to fight and die for. Plain and simple.

So.......if more people in America own more guns than ever, how exactly is your freedom being threatened?

You freaks lack the fortitude to defend yourselves. And rely on your 'masters' for protection. While we choose to follow the example of our forefathers. Which provided for their OWN defense. And attempted to live with as much freedom and liberty as possible. Out from underneath the boot of nanny state government.

How is the right to keep and bear arms being infringed? If that is the case, why do more people than ever own guns? How are they able to do that?

Think for a minute, if that's possible.

What part of "shall NOT be infringed" do you NOT understand? ALL 'gun control' laws are UNCONSTITUTIONAL. For our state and federal servants were EXPRESSLY DENIED the delegated authority to enact ANY law that contravenes that specific right in ANY way, shape or form. They LEGALLY cannot; tax, regulate, or register We The People's arms. All current gun laws or regulations are Constitutionally REPUGNANT. And therefore NULL and VOID.
Agreed, and there are no less that 12 legal decisions in the U.S. which rule against any such idea as 'licensing a right.'

The matter is, in U.S. legal parlance, referred to as 'settled law.'

Let's get back to the basics. It's called the 'Constitution of the United States of America'....which seems to be a 'stretch' for some.....Let's focus on the 2nd Ammendment of that document...now, what does it say, exactly? I'm not going to do your homework for you, you obviously failed that subject in high school...what I will provide for you is what is presently happening in our country....our state...if, you are qualified to 'vote'. You have a responsibility. Educate yourself before you vote for your representative. They have the ultimate 'vote' to change or re-arrange the Constitution...who is the last defense against tyranny? After idiots like youself have left it up to the people who actually take the time to vote, and, choose to change the Constitution? Did that person, know their Constitution? Do they know that the person who is their elected Sheriff, who took an oath is mandated to protect them from foreign and domestic threats? The same oath that is taken by any other Sheriff who has taken office. To protect and defend the constitution of the United States of America...the last line of defense...to protect and defend each and every citizen of their purvue....they swore....you? What is your stance? Where do you fall in the active, dedicated, participants in our elective process? Sit in your basemnt and opine...yep, we'll respect that....NOT

Let's go back to the class you 'supposedly' passed in order to graduate from high school. It's called the Constitution of the United States of America... the one you're referring to is the 2nd one. It's not rocket science, it's our right as an American Citizen. Those rights are set in stone. Period. You want to change them? You're going to have to do a lot more than 'opine' on a newspaper blog. The threat? Now, if and when, the obvious ever happens 'again'(911)....and another country tries to control or 'infringe' on our soil, who are you going to call....the military? Yep, but only if they aren't already involved in a world war...now, who do you call? That little statute is also in the Constitution. That's why we have an elected Sheriff. His job? To protect you. His oath? Look it up. You? Get educated. You're pathetic. Bet they're trained and ready for any emergency...but then, you probsbly don't know that...you're sitting at a computer....internet surfer? Google it.

You've named yourself aptly!

If you want 'basics,' then ask yourself just this: In that moment of EXTREME NEED, upon WHOM will you rely?

If THAT person —or 'those people'— will NOT be IMMEDIATELY available upon your MOST URGENT request, then WHO is responsible for YOUR life?

THE BIG QUESTION: WHO is responsible for YOUR life?

Let's talk about THAT, before YOU enter into yet another tirade.
