It's been proposed years ago by responsible gun owners, it's simple and it's very easy to understand but most importantly it's the single most effective thing we can do! Yet, f-ing loons like you can't even get behind something as simple and effectual as this - you sorry-ass gunloons have no shame or sense of community – just as long as you can play with your guns!
That is not your decision to make for anyone but yourself.

Case No 14,897

UNITED STATES v. CBUIKSHANK et al.
[1 Woods 308; 1 13 Am. Law Reg.(N.S) 630.]

Circuit Court. D. Louisiana. April Term, 1874.=

Civil Rights Bill--Indictment for Violation
--FOURTEENTH AND FIFTEENTH Amendments to
Constitution--Right to Vote-- Injuries to Negroes--How Cognizable.

"...The first count is for a conspiracy to interfere with the right to "peaceably assemble together with each other, and with other citizens, for a peaceable and lawful purpose." This right Is guarantied in the first amendment to the constitution, which declares that "congress shall make no law abridging the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances." Does this disaffirmance of the power of congress to prevent the assembling of the people amount to an affirmative power to punish individuals for disturbing assemblies? This would be a strange inference. That is the prerogative of the states. It belongs to the preservation of the public peace and the fundamental rights of the people. The people of the states do not ask congress to protect the right, but demand that it shall not interfere with it. Has anything since occurred to give congress legislative power over the subject matter? The 14th amendment declares that no state shall by law abridge the privileges or Immunities of citizens of the United States. Grant that this prohibition now prevents the states from Interfering with the right to assemble, as being one of such privileges and immunities, still does it give congress power to legislate over the subject? Power to enforce the amendment is all that Is given to congress. If the amendment Is not violated, it has no power over the subject.

"The second count, which is for a conspiracy to interfere with certain citizens in their right to bear arms is open to the same criticism as the first...."

[NOTE. The order arresting the in conformity with the above opinion of Mr Justice Bradley was affirmed by the supreme court where it was carried on writ of error and certificate of division. 92 U.S. 542.]

Guns dont kill people, people kill people oh really? Guns are harmless inanimate objects and do nothing. Well, I got news for you gunloons, so is a ham sandwich or any other inorganic object, problem with your semi-conscious logic is that your harmless gun is the only lethal and incredibly deadly object when combined with humans or perhaps monkeys as well. Of the tenths of thousand homicides by firearm in the US every year, how many fall into the "Protection from Tyranny" or "Resistance To Tyranny" categories? Can we ask these loons to get back to us with an argument that deals with reality?

For a moment there I thought it was SNL...

Democrats take the mile an inch at a time! Total disarmament is the goal. They just know they can't get there all at once. Look at everything the liberals have taken! It has been done a little at a time.

Yeah, gotta love the peace and brotherly love you see in Chicago, huh? The strictest gun laws in the nation have made that place paradise on earth...

And we here in Cali (Los Angeles for me) we definitely don't know what gun violence is...

Gotta love those laws...

Let's see - who also had or have strict gun control laws. Nazi Germany? Russia?

Strict Gun Laws in Chicago Cant Stem Fatal Shots

CHICAGO Not a single gun shop can be found in this city because they are outlawed. Handguns were banned in Chicago for decades, too, until 2010, when the United States Supreme Court ruled that was going too far, leading city leaders to settle for restrictions some describe as the closest they could get legally to a ban without a ban. Despite a continuing legal fight, Illinois remains the only state in the nation with no provision to let private citizens carry guns in public.

And yet Chicago, a city with no civilian gun ranges and bans on both assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, finds itself laboring to stem a flood of gun violence that contributed to more than 500 homicides last year and at least 40 killings already in 2013.

yes, but you left out the fact that only 13 states require back ground checks and there are multiple loop holes, such as selling to family, friends and people that have known each other.

what we need is a Federal Law requiring background checks on all firearm sales

of course if the gun laws in the surrounding states are lax, any gun control laws in Chicago, NY and LA become a moot point, or did that escape you. The majority of guns used for criminal purposes in NY come from Virginia
