I love to see giant lighted billboards (LED's) advertising guns.

It depends on how you feel about the proliferation of military-style, self-reloading firearms," says Steven Gunn of the Gun Violence Prevention Center of Utah. "KSL is doing a disservice to our community by facilitating the sale of these firearms. ItÂ’s a bad idea. They have a destabilizing effect on society."
Nope. Again, it is the complete opposite of what this nazi says.

Every American should be able to buy guns online or anywhere. Because of illegal, immoral, and dysfunctional gun laws, I'm forced to pay much higher prices locally.

The U.S. Post Office has been failing to break even yet it ships handguns for LEO's only (not for me). If you ask a post office employee they will say they can't ship any firearm. They refuse to ship things they should be forced to ship.

Any person or entity who transfers a gun or guns has only one responsibility and that's to not do the transfer if they think the gun will be used in crime (theft, assault, murder). It's not a crime to buy a gun to resist rogue govt or police (it's patriotic). Felons and persons involved in illegal activity have every right to have a gun for self defense.

My favorite gun ad comes from Centerfire Systems (Versailles, Kentucky); it doesn't come from a newspaper. CenterfireSystems catalogue is made with cheap paper and color ink. We should be able to buy from them (online) without using licensed gun dealers, and the Post Office should be forced to ship guns purchased online from CenterfireSystems.

Amerika has become a nation of nazis.
yeah right

Gee whiz. Go watch an old WW2 movie. See the nazi's killing people because of their religion,politics,ethnicity, attitude - shooting everyone they don't like ? OK, THOSE are nazi's. See the peaceniks in America thinking that people probably DON'T need to be shooting each other ? Those are not nazi's.
Get it? Nazi's= bad, shoot people. Not Nazi's = American's who place minor restrictions on gun sales, in a weak attempt to keep every lunatic and violent gang from assembling a military-grade arsenal.

Now do you understand the difference?

I hope everyone remembers that Tories were Americans who were traitors to the Revolution.

The 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution FORBIDS government regulation of guns.

What you or the peaceniks think, opine, muse, believe, fear or want has no bearing on any citizen exercising their rights. To force, thru law, YOUR wants on others is a NAZI trait. Freedom really is a simple concept you ignorantshithead.

Wow, you convinced me !

Angry people like you definitely need to keep military arsenals handy, in case some peacnick get elected and you have to take out the government.

It's in the Constitution !!! And the Bible !!!

Thank goodness the Supreme Court, while affirming the individual right to bear arms, also affirms reasonable restrictions on arms sales. I do not want to see street gangs with .50 caliber truck mounted machine guns, nor do the vast majority of not insane Americans - regardless of the gun nut interpretation of the 2nd Ammendment.

It was an illegal, armed revolution, against the rule of law, against a hated govt. It was led by George Washington, the first president. He would agree with me that antigun people like you are NAZIS (traitors).

I'm not anti-gun. I am a veteran, and a supporter of the 2nd Ammendment. You psychos are so hopelessly polarized and paranoid that you think anyone who favors reasonable restrictions is a nazi coming to disarm every law abiding Cletus in America.
Not hardly, doofus.
I am against gangsters with truck mounted .50 cals. That is a restriction on ownership, isn't it? It's unconstitutional, isn't it?

I don't want mentally disturbed, violent, criminal drunks in bars with Uzis. That's a restriction isn't it? It's unconstitutional according to the deranged gun nuts, yes?

Were you one of the idiots who spent your whole welfare check on ammunition because someone told you Obama was going to take yer guns? Oops. But you will still believe the next fear factory press release, won't you?

Your hysteria & sensationalism are bookends to an idiot. I am a veteran soldier & LEO. The only restrictions on guns that are Constitutional are: No guns for INCARCERATED criminals, & no guns for those ADJUDICATED as MENTALLY INCOMPETENT OR INSANE, certified by at least 2 shrinks & a jury of citizens. All other anti-gun laws are unconstitutional & immoral.

Got it. You are a complete lunatic. Understood. I look forward to your braying at the ghosts in your mind, since you are a perfect reverse barometer for sanity. If you don't like it, it must be sane, reasonable, and good for everyone (as well as constitutional, and biblical - whew !)
How does it feel to be so wrong ?
How does it feel to be a despised and persectured minority, pig piggy (unless by LEO, you really mean rent a pig)? How many innocent people did you beat up or lock up before you retired on disability for a bad back at 38, in exchange for your victim not pressing charges ? Psychos like you all have fugly service records.

You are an idiot. My record is spotless.# honorable discharges for 3 tours served. Numerous commendations for job performance & bravery. I never once violated the inherent human rights of anyone. PIG = PRIDE, INTEGRITY, & GUTS!! I'll bet your momma loves pork.

The voice of the entitled ant-gun nut personified. I say 'entitled' because the biggest part of their schtick is to sling off some falsehood right out of the bureau of the own rump, as if it were truth. IOW, entitled to lie to make their case. In Einstein's case here, he fobs off this nonsense that without the supreme court affirming 'sensible' gc laws, we'd have gang bangers with machine guns on their ....lets say suv's and lowriders, not 'trucks' those tend to go with the legal blue collar workers intending to do something useful....anyhoo, another stereotype defeated and one last point, those machine guns have been controlled since the '30s and since then only one legal machine gun owner committed a crime with one...and he was a cop.

Why do gun nuts take such absolutist positions regarding their fellow citizens? If someone is in favor of "reasonable restrictions", they become an anti-gun nut?

Dudes, you are a funky bunch.

How much regulation is there when the US is awash in guns?

If there are lots of gun regulations, exactly what do they accomplish? The government, any government, is ALWAYS like this.
That is human nature. Get power, get stupid, get to be an effing pain in the ass.

That applies to management of any kind: government, the military, the local PTA, the cub scout troop, the corporation, the family. People should just stop paying any attention to other people ordering them about.

If you want the 2nd amendment to mean what you think it means then every man, woman and child should be permanently drafted into the militia. Forget those lazy summer afternoons...there will be lots of marching in your future.
