Yes and the first move was to take their guns.<quoted text>That's just BS. A singular tool/device did NOT build this nation, nor create our legal system, and a Gun was most certainly the inspiration of the FF's.
People gave this Nation its freedoms! Not a tool, tool!
Your almighty Gun also took freedoms away from many people in this nation, like Blacks, and then the Japanese in WW2. And it still does so today when as a society we ignore the plight of the areas where the criminals rule the streets and people can not move around freely, or have to worry about wearing some Gang-colors in the wrong area...
In his final BBC Radio 4 Thought for the Day before retiring, Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams has talked about the corruption of a gun-toting culture.

Talk about your specious argument void of nuance.
You're p[ssing in the wind.
None, not one, of the mass murders instigating this topic had anything to do with settling an argument.
ALL, let me say that again, ALL were the product of mentally unbalanced people immersed in the killing video game/hollywood violence that permeates our society.
Until those issues are addressed and corrected, calling for stricter gun laws is a straw man argument.

And like most people around here, you cant read very well.
Do you even know what nuance means?
Didn't the Columbine murderers think they were settling matters, getting back at others? I do believe that is part of what we've gleaned from what they left behind. We do know that many of these people have persecution complexes, or are acting to settle some score - even if imagined. Like the guy who shot up the Sikh temple thinking they were Muslims. he was settling some score in his brain.
Oh...so its things like video games, movies, etc making people kill...I see, free-will and stuff doesnt do it.
Where do some of these game makers and movie makers get this fixation on using the Gun to settle the score come from? From the general mythos of American folklore-culture that existed long before the Gamebox came along. Americans settling scores with the use of the Gun has been a long standard of Americana. These games and movies are nothing but the same old beliefs using modern technology.
But you'd prefer we control avenues of Entertainment and FICTION, over access to devices that no one actually needs...and that should in many cases not be so easy to procure. I see you prefer possible thought control over device control.

What? Guns were taken from Black Americans, and/or Japanese Americans...? Really, I missed that part of the record...
Plus, idiot, I never mentioned taking all guns away. Learn to read.
Why cant you idiots have a sensible discussion?

Liberal spin and revisionist justification.
Aren't you man enough to admit you're wrong?
Your beligerant jumping to pointless argument proves you are unfit to own a firearm.
Don't project your faults and failings onto others.

Funny how you claim 'everybody else' is an idiot that can't read and comprehend your post contents.
Ever consider it's YOUR communication skills that are lacking nearly as much as your nonsensical reasonings?
Hmmm,...."everybody's out of step but puni"?

Unless they are janissaries slaves are not given weapons, and do you really believe that the Japanese Americans were allowed to take weapons when they were interned. Do you think the Japanese gave up their swords willingly when some considered them their "souls" even though they started out as archers.
