Now now, stop your nasty name-calling, parrot.

Are you allergic to truth, to wit???

The US has the MOST prisoners in the World! I thought gun ownership was supposed to make us safer. It seems prisons make us safer.

Try independent thought. Only the police are allowed guns on planes. Do you have a problem with that? Are you afraid of the police? Would you like everyone to be able to carry guns or bombs on planes? How do you know who is a criminal or mentally ill, if you don't track who buys or sells guns? Just answer the questions!

Since you are too angry and dimwitted to answer, I'll leave the questions to others who think there should be no regulation of guns in the US.

Again, parrot, do you think the government has the right to keep guns off airplanes? This time show some thought and be responsive.
Yes, of course. Any gun could bring down a plane or decompress it without the right type ammunion.

So you want to limit our 2nd Amendment rights. Thank you for your honesty. Now tell that to the NRA. More guns will not make us safer.

Without being able to stop suspicious people, and frisk them for illegal guns Chicago will not do anything about illegal guns. Their idea of dealing with illegal guns is to have a gun buy back where the criminals sell back the guns they used in crimes, and use the money to buy clean ones.

Chicago has issues, and it is not guns. The Sinola cartel is setting up shop, and gun laws are of no concern to them.

Allowing citizens to exercise thier right of self protection will not create more problems, 49 States prove that. Ownership of a firearm is a civil right. The same people who feel a need to ban firearms are of two types, first is ill informed by the second type- anti civil right, authoritarian figure heads who feel they know what is best for others who they feel are unable to think for themselves.

If you do not want to own a gun, then don't. If you do, do so responsibly or lose the right.

The Chicago Mayor, and the Chief of Police do not have the respect of the people so they lie to the police, cover for the criminal element, and use the rival gang members for target practice. There is no way they could ever put enough police officers on the street to protect the law abiding citizens. If you talk to the police officers they recommend you arm yourself, because they cannot be everywhere, and your safety in Chicago is your responsibility. We goo downtown to have dinner, and show the children the beautiful decorations at Christmas. This year we just wanted a hurried dinner, and went home. It is not a nice place to be any more.

Flash: Obama continues to try and punish America while he him self is acting like a petulant child. Obama announced that White House tours would be cancelled, do to the cut backs on the sequester………WHILE taking 24 vehicles ONE HALF MILE last night to the restaurant to meet republicans. That meal and security cost more that the annual salary of the Head of the White House guides. Obama continues to show he has no clue between what he and his mouth pieces say and what he actually does.

He has a complete White House staff to feed him and guest and the security would have already have been there……….Obama has no idea of how money really works or how much he has added to our debt.
