Any attempt at Nationalized gun control will be the start of the next civil war. I saw a bumper sticker that I like which said "When you come for mine, bring your own".

ok that's a good point, but let's take Lala's analogy with the frog and let's say they "turn up the heat" and now tell you that you can't have a garden in your backyard either because your neighbors think it's an eyesore to them. According to your logic, it seems that your neighbor's preferences take precedence over yours, so would you agree if an ordinance like this was passed? I am not saying this simply to be argumentative, the point is where do you draw the line between your rights and the law, or are you one who will abide by the laws no matter if you disagree with it or no matter how ridiculous the law may be, because there are certainly a lot of ridiculous laws out there which are still in the books that no one even challenges.
People are free to fight the ordinances with organizing petitions and attending town meetings. You can change stupid ordinances if you try. The voters and taxpayers have a say on how their city/county is run. Some people move into gated communities and know there are rules there to live there. If you think they are unfair you can try to change them or simply find somewhere to move that suits your needs. Like "Nope" said. You pick your battles. One neighbor wouldn't do it. I have challenged many laws, rules, and regulations in my day. I know how it works. I know also most people want changes but are too lazy to organize to change a damn thing. Just the way people are. Despite annoying ordinance or our laws, this is still the greatest country on Earth and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

YOU arugumentative...NAH, haha

You are exactly right AW. I think the government officials know that as well. That's probably the only thing that's holding them back.

the second amendment was put in there by the founding fathers because they knew that we needed to be able to protect ourselves if our government ever went rogue with leaders that ignore the Constitution. I think this country is now perilously close to this point. With those words of Joe Biden, we should demand that he be removed from office.
Biden further said that executive order is an option. It is getting scary to live in America. It's a slippery slope and we are rapidly sliding. O.K., no more said, but to those who care what is going on, keep tabs on the news. Rapid changes are coming, and they are not positive for liberty.America has always been the beacon of freedom. We have been a refuge for people of all nationalities who seek safe haven from oppressive governments....and I want it to stay that way.

Yes, I do. If you move into an area or neighborhood within city limits you should make sure you can live with their ordinances on the books. The people vote for these and if they move there in a neighborhood that has those ordinances on the books you either live within them or move. If I had a nice house next door or across the street and my yard was manicured and landscaped I wouldn't be too happy to see a big garden taking away from that. It just wouldn't look right no matter how nice that garden looked, whether you shared it with the neighbors even. To some it would be a real eyesore. Our society has always had laws, rules, and regulations. If they can't put it in the back yard then they should move where they can grow in all around their house if they want to. That is just the way it is. Just like the fence not being in the front anymore (meter readers etc..hazard), leash laws etc. It is a real nice garden though.
Couple fined for having garden: Take that, urban vegetable gardening trend (+video)
A couple fined for having a garden in Orlando, Fla. has been ordered to dig up their vegetables or pay a $500 a day fine until they do.
Although there have been changes in municipal laws in recent years to adjust for the swell of urban gardens and yuppies-turned-horticulturalis ts,(we ran a story about this a couple of years back), a slew of zoning ordinances limit the reach of suburban green thumbs. Turns out that the well manicured lawn still has a lot of sway and that a lot of neighbors are less pleased with squash and cabbage than with pansies and daffodils.

my front lawn is continuous with my lawn at the side of the house and last year I had a vegetable and fruit garden growing there with grapes growing on an arbor, strawberry vines, blueberries, blackberries, boysenberries, sprawling tomato and cucumber plants, asparagus, peppers, various herbs and spices which were interspersed among different flowering plants...the neighbors loved it and I got no hassle from the city inspector. I guess I they could have given me hard time if they wanted to, but they didn't.

I look for that civil war to begin soon enough. Our government is treading on some very thin ice when they start to talk about disarming us.

We know all too well the history behind what happens when you take basic rights away from the innocents. Even two World wars that our OWN men and women fought and died in so that others could remain free..

Now the very government that they took their orders from, wants to take OUR freedoms?

There will be no foreign lands offering to come over here to help us win our freedom from oppression... No one is going to come over here to help the American citizens fight it's own government....

That's why you treasure getting out away from people and city limits. There are some crazy ordinances across the country. I seen a list one time that would crack you up someone would even think of it let alone make it an ordinance. It is the world we live in.
I'm really leaving after this post, but I can't resist a funny story. I was reading a list of silly laws from countries around the world, when I came across this little item, I believe it was England, but I'm not positively sure. I'll look it up later: Anyway, this country passed an "anti-flatulence" tax per cow. Can you imagine??The reason for this is that cows cause environmental pollution with the gas they emit. I wonder how much they would tax Una for his malodorous emissions!!!! LOL Once again, everyone, good night.

get ready because I believe DHS is already preparing for a civil war. The feds have ordered over a billion round of hollow point bullets in 2012. What do you think they plan to do with all that ammo?

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Homeland-Sec...
Homeland Security Prepares for Civil War

Digging deeper into the government's recent procurements for ammo, you learn just how aggressively they are buying up ridiculous amounts of ammo and riot related equipment. The feds have actually ordered over 1 billion rounds of ammo in 2012 alone. They received 750,000,000 in March and are awaiting another 450,000,000 arriving soon. All in conjunction with large-scale orders for riot gear, bulletproof checkpoint outposts with red and green stoplights, human shaped paper practice targets, and other crowd control and containment equipment.

There is no conspiracy theory here. The federal government is expecting either a catastrophic financial collapse that could provoke nationwide food riots and all out civil unrest, another civil war, or even Armageddon. All in the very near future. Some theorize that the mass purchase of ammunition is an attempt to hoard as much as possible from the American public whom the feds believe may be in preparation for civil war right now.

I feel the need to bring up something very important. I shy away from political topics, but this very important because it directly affects our rights as free Americans. I happened to catch a couple of news stories. The first was about gun control. Our Vice President has said, "We are going after guns, and the courts and the Constitution be damned." I am a nonviolent person, but I believe a person has the right to protect himself. If I have committed no crimes and have no mental illness, and acquired a gun for personal protection, I do not believe that I should surrender my gun. Folks, this has been coming for some time,and the unfortunate incident in Connecticut is giving politicians an excuse for gun seizure. We should be alert and not let our Constitutional rights be trampled.
The second news story involved a couple who had a family garden for 20 years, owned their own home, and paid taxes. The town in which they live threatened to fine them $500.00/day unless they destroyed their garden. They are fighting this, and when it made national news, the authorities in control are starting to back down.
There are more and more incidents like this, and these kinds of interference directly affects a large number of citizens.
This is just a little info., but I find it disturbing that we are being encumbered by more and more rules and regulations. As you folks know, I shy away from discussion of politics and religion because it often results
Rules and regs where would we be w/o them? On the other hand how do you get over 300 million people to agree where to draw the line and then get a government to follow the lead?

In America there is no such thing as a martyr just crazy people that die trying to prove their point. Meanwhile most of us just carry on oblivious to why a person would fight the system orgive his/her life for a cause that seems useless. However, the battle to retain gun rights could produce bonafide American martyrs.

I don't bury my head in the sand, but I don't fight other people's battles when they won't fight for their own.

There is a local spat over someone moving a mobile home into an area where a house once burned. I don't know if it is permanently planned or just temporary housing until they can do better, but as I have heard many times "I don't have a dog in that fight".

I have yet to read or hear anything about anyone trying to disarm Americans. Speculation. I only see an attempt to make Americans safer. No one is trying to take anyone's guns away. Just restrict and strenghten the laws.

Biden says Obama could use executive orders to restrict guns

We are not going to get caught up in the notion that unless we can do everything, we're going to do nothing. It's critically important that we act," said Biden, who will meet on Thursday with pro-gun groups including the National Rifle Association, which claims 4 million members and is the gun lobby's most powerful organization.

Even without action by Congress, Obama could issue orders to improve background checks on gun buyers, ban certain gun imports and bolster oversight of dealers. Other executive orders could improve information sharing among law enforcement authorities about illegal gun purchases, and maintain data on gun sales for longer periods.
Obama has said he believes most Americans support the reinstatement of a ban on the sale of military-style assault weapons, barring the sale of high-capacity ammunition clips, and a law requiring background checks on buyers before all gun purchases.

It is unclear whether any of those measures will have more support in Congress after the Connecticut massacre than they did after previous mass shootings.

With the federal outcome uncertain, some states are taking action on their own. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo pledged to enact the country's strictest assault weapons ban and outlaw all high-capacity magazines.
