Someone send a memo to Bloomberg
that we can't have too many guns.
The more the merrier.
The FBI estimates that there are over 200 million
privately owned firearms in America, more than
any other nation.
Where is all the security the NRA claims we get
with lots of firearms?
Having more would make us safer?
More and more guns. More and more violence.
Do the math.
The NRA made no such claim. How long have you been wanting to kiss Bloomberg's ass?
And where are your stats to back up your claims of more guns = more violence?

2nd Amendment doesn't give one the right to kill innocent people. Uou know that but you'll be dishonest about that.

For example, since Bush has been in office, the government has been granted the following powers:
Listen to your phone calls without warrant.
Read your emails without warrant.
Monitor your internet activity without warrant.
Monitor the books you borrow from the library, without warrant.
Monitor the groups you associate with.
Search your house without warrant.
Search your car without warrant.
Collect "evidence" from those places, without warrant.
On a whim, an American citizen can be declared an "enemy combatant", and:
Detained without charge, in secret.
Denied legal representation.
Denied the right to question his detention.
Shipped to a foreign country for interrogation, in secret.
Tortured, in secret.
Be tried by a military tribunal, in secret.
NOT be granted access to the secret evidence against him.
Convicted based on that secret evidence.
So, if the above is NOT considered "tyrannical", then what is? Where do you draw the line?
At turning my gun over!!!!

I'll give up my guns when they disarm the little animals that live in the ghettos of our major cities. They will never give up their guns, and neither will I. Every weekend there is a new body count. They are all very young. Where are Obama's tears for the children in his old neighborhood?

Gun control is responsible gun owners locking up their guns the way they lock up their cars. That way the wrong people can't get them and use them for a crime. I wish all these gun advocates would stress the importance of locking up your guns when not in use. How many kids have brought their parents guns to schools. Also, this guy showed all kinds of mental issues, and assault rifles and guns were in easy reach in his home. His mom bought those guns so she could feel safe, and her killer was living with her. Too bad she didn't lock them up out of reach. He had no business having access to guns.

My Dad left his loaded guns and wallet around me all of the time.But he taught me this rule;If it doesn't belong to you you don't touch it or you are a thief.

This isn't about you. So many others have paid with their lives because of irresponsible owners. So many people say the mental signs were there. So why did this guy have access to guns.

You should come to New York City, spend a couple of weeks. People are murdered, robbed, raped, burglarized, home invasions,assualts both adults and children everyday in bloombergs kingdom. Don`t you think that the law abiding public should have a right to protect themselves from the criminals.

NYC`s graveyards are full of those who believed wrongly that the police will protect them. Cops I know will tell you that it`s up to individuals to provide for their own safety and security, They CAN`T protect you. 99% of the time the only thing cops can do is to try and solve the crime, If your the victim not too much solace in that especially if your dead.

Get the proper training and armup it`s only going to get worse for the near future. Be legal and stay alive or maybe you`ll end up saving anothers life, you never know.

The line has already been crossed - it's that simple. People are too afraid to die, be imprisoned, and/or lose everything. People have become pacified. The 2nd Amendment stands there shaming us all.

You are correct at age six I got my first 22 that I worked all summer for.At twelve I got a 20gauge 223 over and under.Still got them both and at 50 I still love shooting them.I watched my Dad and obeyed his rules 100% and never had an issue going out on my own hunting.That is why I am saying sounds like a lack of guidance and parenting to me.

Why do stores and banks provide sufficient security but schools don't? Terrible people and terrible circumstances exist - those who don't deal with this reality will deal with its' results - it's also time to stop pretending that you can shove drugs down a kid's throat and alter their brain chemistry and that this won't have potentially lethal results - one damn school shooting after another with the "highly intelligent male with the mood disorder" dead on the ground and dead people all around him. Just how many times do you need to hear about this scene and the associated medications before the pattern hits you?

In general, how disturbing is it that there is a political movement in this country who makes a point to NOT want to solve any issues or DEAL with harsh realities if it doesn't fit within their blind and singular agenda of growing government power?
