Jan 17, 2013 Read more: Cedartown Standard Plus 140
President Barack Obama's sweeping gun-control package faces an uncertain future on Capitol Hill, where majority House Republicans are rejecting his proposals while the president's allies in the Democratic-controlled Senate are stopping well short of pledging immediate action. Read more

Unfortunately, you can't bank on that. Even though the second amendment is important to the majority of people, the free government handouts, by 2014, will be more important to a different majority. I fear those that would protect the second may never be elected again.

I don't care what people want. The second amendment says they can't have it! Knee jerk mob rule is t going to fly.
I don't care what you deem silly. "Those weapons" are what separates the Democratic Republic from a tyrannical dictatorship.

By 2nd Amendment, we talk of it with such self-rewarding reverence.....a document written in the atmosphere of the late 1700's.....are we not to have evolved in all these years?....Are we unable to adapt to our societal needs of current times? You disprove the pioneer spirit of this country, when you let colonial concepts, preclude the needs of our present day.....

That evolution you speak of is exactly why the Second Amendment was written, and exactly why it contains the phrase, "Shall Not Be Infringed".

I'll state it plainly for you. My Second Amendment rights will be infringed no further! I will keep them as they are. Anyone coming to enforce further infringement of my second amendment rights, will learn first hand what they are all about. Is that plain enough for you?

You can try to make me feel bad, or guilty, or singled out for holding on to what is guaranteed to me. It's not going to work. You are free to give up your freedoms and rights. You, and the rest if the progressives are NOT getting mine!

Gun control debate: Is an assault weapons ban out of reach?
exert
"In a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, a majority of justices ruled that the government cannot ban an entire class of weapons (in this case, handguns) that are commonly used by law abiding gun owners for legitimate reasons, such as self defense."

Since a version of this ban has previously been in place, i see no problem re-instating it, with more defined definitions and including large capacity magazines.....

How about writing bills that treat criminals like criminals instead of the fluff we have in place now, that worries more about them than their victims? How about making penalties so stiff that fear keeps them from going out and committing violent gun acts. How about addressing the video game violence, the violence on tv or in the movies, the fact that some parents don't keep an eye on their kids or even talk to them, which would alert them to changes in their behavior???? It's not the dang guns, it's the people who handle them that cause the mayhem, and more times then not, they are STOLEN guns. Responsible gun owners don't usually commit these crimes. It is usually folks who have mental issues or severe anger issues, that their own family failed to notice, and if they did, failed to get the proper help and care for these tortured souls. There are many issues involved that are associated with these acts, and we need to focus more on them, instead of this knee-jerk reaction that will NOT stop further violence.

Now wait a minute! You want to argue that things not specifically pointed out or highlighted in the constitution and bill of rights is not covered. Yet now, despite congressmen and government employees being government officials, you want to claim this applies only to law enforcement, military, and black ops even though it is not specifically pointed out or highlighted.

What a blatant double standard. Hypocrite!

So, they won't have their armed guards following them around, is that it??? Anybody who pushes this, needs to give up their protection, so that they can be on equal ground with the ordinary citizen then. That's only fair.

That would:
1. Make too much sense.
2. Require responsibility.
3. Take away the blood and gore libs love so much.
4. Require admitting inanimate objects are not responsible for crime.
5. Require political correctness to be abandoned.

This is probably a very real possibility. Then the U.S. will be fundamentally transformed into a country without rights. Every piece of legislation coming down the pike attacks liberty and people's bank account. There will be more poor and more dependents. People need to wake up but they won't until the gov. doesn't feed them anymore.

Dead on nail head! It will at some point reach critical mass. But I'm amazed at how long it appears to be taking.
When it finally sinks in, very few will be prepared for what will happen.
People should have payed attention to what their parents and grand parents, that grew up in the depression, tried to teach them.

A loose organization and secrecy were paramount for Vereide. Fellowship archives state that Vereide wanted his movement to “carry out its objective through personal, trusting, informal, unpublicized contact between people.” Vereide’s establishment of his Prayer Breakfast Movement for anti-Socialist and anti-International Workers of the World (IWW or “Wobblies”) Seattle businessmen in 1935 coincided with the establishment of another pro-Nazi German organization in the United States, the German-American Bund. Vereide saw his prayer movement replacing labor unions.
What bound all so-called “America First” movements prior to World War II was their common hatred for labor unions, Communists and Socialists, Jews, and most definitely, the administration of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Vereide’s Prayer Breakfast Movement, pro-Nazi German groups like the Bund, and a resurgent Ku Klux Klan had more than propaganda in common – they had an interlocking leadership and a coordinated political agenda.
