Gun Control Laws are an act of futility and do nothing but enable those willing to shoot people for whatever reason have a free reign over their actions. We have fast food stores who will sell you a hamburger, but you still can make one at your home. If a prisoner in a federal maximum security prison can make a gun under strict supervision of the guards then how can you stop someone with the knowledge from making a gun out in the real world. Weapons can be made from numerous things found in a common household. Gun Control and even bullet control is something that only an ignorant person would believe will work. How to make bullets and even guns is information widely available to the public through many forms of written materials. Even your local fire department publishes materials that ca lead to the making of numerous kinds of bombs. In a free society without thought control there is absolutely no way to control any kind of weapon that has been made by man. Even the bible shows that murder is a part of our world. Gun control is an idea by an uneducated person that in the real world still may or may not control shootings by desperate people. In some instances may even cause a simple shooting event to turn into a shooting spree. We do not live in a perfect world and these people must start facing the truth. Gun Control pales when as a scientist one knows that the instructions for building an atomic bomb can actually be found in a seventh grade public school text book. Plutonium is the only ingredient that makes it almost impossible to make one. Potatoe guns are made by high school and younger students almost every month. A sling weapon can be thrown with a resulting force more powerful than a 357 magnum gun, and these are found in the age of prehistoric man. Gun Control is stupid and bullet control is even dumber because the only people who will be prevented from using one is those who are innocent of wanting to break the law or kill someone. You can make bullets from the decomposition of organic matter to produce a substance called niter and this is the principle ingredient in bullets. A nail gun is just as dangerous as a real gun and even today does not require any permit unlike guns to purchase. The only solution to violence would be to place everyone in seperate rubber rooms and then watch us all starve to death. No one can prevent the use of guns by man because the information as to how to make them is incorporated in so many non-violent mechanical equipment used by people in everyday things including cars. Knowledge is a powerful thing and these gun control advocates need to understand that pandora's box has been opened and guns are a result of that opening amongst other things.

Propaganda: ABC to Run Drama Demonizing Militias

'Founding Fathers' is not about drama or primetime entertainment. It is about continuing and amplifying the government’s domestic terror narrative focused on its most politically dangerous opponent – the patriot movement now characterized as “rightwing extremism” by the Department of Homeland Security.
