So killings are justified. Don't take a knife to a gun fight. Some people need killing for a better world

[QUOTE who="Jessie on 10thSt."]My weapons are going nowhere. The government is buying ammo at record rates. Billions of rounds of ammo being purchased by DHS. Wonder what they have in mind? They wanting a war with the people? The people will bring it if they start one.[/QUOTE]

You having a weapon are the prime reason citizens are armed in America.

People in Kentucky understand the 2nd Amendment better then people in Washington, D C. They have had guns for years, and use them to protect themselves, and others.

BTW, I wouldn't recommend any wrong headed government workers try to take them away from a Kentuckyian. It is bad for your health.

It's interesting you say this, if you are found to have a mental condition you can not own a firearm, it says so on one of the questions on the form for the background check but you can make decisions for the people of the United States Of America. Last I checked being suicidal is a mental condition. Something to think about.
