So who needs a semi automatic?? Like seriously? Every American should have a gun that cannot be easily reloaded.Yes your rifht shootings have always happened but back in the 1960s if you had of told me there would be gun detectors in schools I would have laughed at the notion. Like I said what a sad world we live in. Im glad guns are illeagal here. They are still around but there is a hell of a lot less than there was and that SAVES LIVES. That is all that matters.

Lets face it... there are a lot of whack jobs out there who love guns too... I think the community would not object to being on some type of register if they were responsible gun owners. What would they have to hide??

A semi auto merely means that each time you pull the trigger, a round is fired, a revolver is a semi automatic pistol. If I am facing an intruder, I do not want to have to have to reload after each shot, or pull back a bolt. Criminals have semi and full auto, with much more than 10 rounds in a magazine, so why would i want to be armed with a flintlock. Guns also save lives every day.

The purpose of a background check is to insure that the person applying to purchase a gun can do so legally. There is absolutely no reason to file that paperwork for future use, since every time I want to buy a gun I need to reapply. The application does not mean that I actually purchased it, so it is useless for purposes of tracking gun purchases. It is not a matter of having something to hide, it is about not having the government compiling more and more information on you.Registration is another matter.

The "publicity " that should be coming out which isn't is the fact that the 'shooters' where for the most part on prescription drugs.

Jesse Ventura just released the following statement on his Facebook page:

“I don’t see enough evidence to think Sandy Hook was a false flag operation. This is more of a tragic event turned into political opportunity than it is a staged event.

Was there investigative bungling and the sensationalist media reporting unverified stories? Yes.
Was there confusion and were facts lost and gained in that confusion? Yes.
Are there people, even witnesses, looking for their 30 seconds in the spotlight? Yes.
Are there individuals and institutions using and shaping this event for their own political agendas? Yes, and we must keep a very watchful eye on those institutions to keep them from twisting the facts of this event.
Sadly, everything I mentioned above can, when taken out of context, make one think manipulation is afoot.

Most chaotic events can come across that way. In examining the event, I don’t see government hands at work mainly because they would have covered their tracks better. We can’t expect them to pull off elaborately planned hoaxes while at the same time leaving behind so many easy “smoking guns” for us to find.

It took years for independent investigators to uncover JFK. It took years for us to begin scratching out the truth about 9/11. Those of us who study real history, not state sanctioned history, can very easily become just as close minded and biased for conspiracy as those who stand in our way and refuse to accept the truth about our government and the people running it.

It’s very easy to fall into that trap, especially when knowing how much of our history and world events are not what they appear to be. So please, do not immediately jump up and yell “Fire!” just because someone makes a Youtube video. Research, research, research. You only hurt our cause by promoting false conspiracies and crackpot agendas.

Much like the Birther conspiracy, I am starting to think that a lot of the so called “evidence” of conspiracy coming out about Sandy Hook is designed and fabricated to make us “conspiracy theorists”, us truth seekers, look foolish. Why? So that when good people argue against the destruction of our Second Amendment they can easily be painted with the “crackpot” brush.

When purchasing a car it has to be registered, It's a leathal weapon and so is a gun. Like I said previousley there are way to many whack jobs with guns who have no buisness having them. It's about the safety of the general public and that is what is most important.

If you can not shoot an intuder with a gun that can hold 6 bullets then without coming across as a smartass I think you should get practice at your nearest shooting range. Once you are confident in your skills you will know you do not have a need for a semi automatic.... you want to shoot the intuder, not be able to read the newspaper through his/her back!

using that logic, why do you need a car that goes faster than 80 miles and hour, lets put limiters on them. Why do you need cars that seat more than 4 people, if you need more seats, the government will provide the transportation. Since it is a "lethal weapon" (your words) then no one should object to a background check to insure that the purchaser or user has never been arrested/convicted for a DUI, or assault, or spousal abuse,or a felony, or drug use, or had a history of mental illness. After all, it is about the safety of the general public. So lets take away the rights of the general public, to save the general public. Surely you won't mind giving up your vehicle for the common good.
Better yet, how about if we just make it illegal for those with a history of mental illness or drug use or felony to own or carry or use a gun,......wait, we already do that, and the ,mentally ill, drug users and felons still get guns.

yes I do, and that is the thing that the media wh@res and politicians don't want us to tslk about, there are many more documented cases of a gun saving lives. Most of the time the user does not even have to fire it, to save their life, or the lives of others. Just the threat of its use sends the cowards running.

The range is not real life. Adrenaline, fear, situations all contribute to missing the target. And what if, as has been the case, there is more than one criminal. And yes, I do want to read the newspaper through his/her back. I want to be damn sure that he/she is totally incapacitated and will no longer pose a threat, regardless of how many holes are in his/her hide.

Gun Expert, Denny Crain, habitchually points out that mass shootings NEVER happen at gun shows because crazy people know there are 'lots of guns and heroes there'. Well, not quite. It turns out that loaded guns aren't allowed in gun shows (sounds like gun control to me) and this kinda stuff might be the reason:

That is correct. Went to one yesterday.. I was allowed to take in my unloaded weapon.. but I was also allowed my mags..so if the need did arise.. after I spent ten minutes digging in my purse for my ammo,, I would be good to go.... JOKE!!.
I will tell you , the protesters on the street outside were very unsettling..I am not using this point for debate..Stood outside in line for over an hour, and the protesters made me much more nervous than the guns...Considering they are supposed to be a "peacful group" I felt somewhat unnerved...as they chanted and cursed, some with fists in the air.. and inside, stepping in front of me, for eye contact..with their flourescent tees...no mistaking who they were.. they were bold and used bullying tactics... There was so much emotion coming from that crowd it was disturbing...
and yes, I get the whole Newtown tragedy... but, Im pretty certain the folks I saw coming and going werent purchasing for mass killings....
you will all also be happy to know, the prices were so inflated it will be impossible for an individual of reasonable income to purchase the arsenal necessary to overtake a tyranny...
we have our answer,, we are doing it to ourselves again.... no need for changed laws... greed is always the answer...

Crain CONSTANTLY declares that gun shows are safe because everybody is armed. Of course, we know different.

I've been waiting for someone to make the connect between high gun/ammo prices and Obama. They tried to promise he wanted $10 a gallon gasoline and that didn't happen. Now, only the rich can afford guns and ammo. Guess who orchestrated and profits from that?

Anybody thinking the government is poised to take guns away is as stupid as those that think they can take on and defeat the US military. Crain (and others) erroneously proclaim that Hitler disarmed the German people. Eisenhower did that, after the war.

Well, common sense, the gun to gun ratio makes a gun show safer. and all fairness, Im sure most (men) had their mags much closer than the bottom of their purse, under their keys, n cell phones, makeup, etc..so response would be quicker.., in the mind of a madman its all surprise , thousands of people yesterday, it was nutz. and a madman could have easily, by element of surprise still taken out , maybe even hundreds. before we realized what was happening..thats the way it is ALWAYS going to be, no matter what venue the freak chooses, or the laws in place... he will take out lives..before taking his own... I honestly felt a little vulnerable standing in line..never had that feeling before.. didnt like it a bit,, but again,, Obama wasnt there,just a bunch of nuts who feel so adamant about anti- that they made the choice to intimidate... no better than the very "monsters" they thot they were protesting against.. going in to pay thousands for firemarms worth hundreds...ammo prices were rediculous! crazy shit!

There's a couple of things afoot here. Democratic presidents are, since Clinton at least, great for gun sales because any first year marketing major is smart enough to know that most people are dumb enough to by buy anything if they are told it's going to be taken away from them. The NRA shills for the gun manufacturers. This is all about money. The second amendment- archaic as it is- isn't in any danger of being repealed. It should be re-written to clear up the misconceptions of boneheads who think that it gives them the right to revolt if they finish second in an election. That's not going to happen anytime soon but it will happen sooner than later because an unintended consequence of all this is that the gun nutters are illustrating how vague and out-dated the 2A is.

But, the other thing going on is, keeping people focused on guns means they might not notice other liberties being in jeopardy or the Wall Street crowd getting their hands on people's Social Security. Millions of Americans are actually stupid enough to believe that, as long as they have guns, they are "free".
