Our goverment has wanted to disarm the american people and that has been their agenda for some time . If you think that by controling guns is going to protect you look at what happend in austraila home invasions jumped up30% criminals love un armed people easy targets . I you wana be a shepeople and just go with what the goverment says is best for you then go and give up your gun thats your choice . I will not give up my only defence agenst scum and tyrents the message is clear and the american people are scared and will not stand for more of our civil libertys to be trampled on by tyrents .

Their is a story in California that a father after being shot by 2 of 3 criminals...shot all 3 and saved the lines of his family and several kids staying for a slumber party...this could have been another tragedy for innocent victims...but,the gun was in the right hands...the father survived I believe..having looked at Australia,the 10year Brady bill and several studies...banning guns doesn't work...arming the good guys and gals works! Look at virginia..guns sales up..crime down..their getting in the right hands.there comes a time when u gotta fight fire with fire!! God bless all the families.Angeles in'll see them again.

"One of the ways to reduce crime in the country wouldn’t be from taking away our guns or creating more gun control; it would be from enforcing against illegal immigration. Statistics show how illegal immigrants do make up a part of our prison population; maybe we should be focusing on securing the border and allowing law enforcement to do their jobs, rather than going after the law-abiding citizens. It’s not right to blame people that have nothing to do with the Newtown shootings..." ---Mark Levin, 8 January 2013
