We don't have ENOUGH laws and regulations concerning guns, firt.
And second, it's a falsehood to claim that "the administration [is] arming criminals in other countries."
I have NO idea what that question about "giving fighter jets to the Muslim Brotherhood" comes from, so I'll disregard it. Your questions are simply dishonest.
OMG, ""the administration [is] arming criminals in other countries" is in reference to Fast and Furious, maybe you should google that so's you can keep up. As to the jet story, here ya go, http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/01/02/press...

The USA has more guns per capita than any other Nation in the world therefore using your logic... more guns should equal a safer America.... unfortunately that's not the case so stop using that cliche bullshit that more guns make society safer.

I'm not anti-gun but I am anti-ignorance therefore I'm obligated to call you out on your ignorance.

Do you or anyone know what Biden Obama and Holder are really going to do about gun control. Restict assault type guns ? Like a Garand or 15 mag hand gun ? Or maybe a six shot revolver ? How are they going to get the guns away from the yutes and maybe only go after the guns on register . That leaves more out there than the amount they could confiscate . Little measures don't do anything to control guns , they're after the big 2nd .
U.S. Supreme Court Justices Kagan, Sotomayor, Ginsberg, and Stevens are all do not believe the 2nd Amendment applies to the average citizen. They voted against the individual citizens of the USA right to bear arms, in District of Columbia v. Heller. and McDonald v. City of Chicago.

All the democrats need is one more gun grabber appointment and our gun rights will be stripped until we can get another chance to install more pro gun Justices. This could literally take decades.

So much for your more guns equal a safer place!!


True but the homicide rate decreases each year as the ownership of firearms increases. If your argument was correct, we should see an increase in the firearms death rate. We do not.

Something else they screwed up <giggle>:

Breitbart.com picked up on the story (which IJReview first learned of via The Right Scoop):

It seems that in their haste to cram socialized medicine down the throats of the American people, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Barack Obama overlooked Senate amendment 3276, Sec. 2716, part c.

According to reports, that amendment says the government cannot collect “any information relating to the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition.”

CNN is calling it “a gift to the nation’s powerful gun lobby.”

So, even CNN has recognized the provision in the otherwise monstrous law. And now that the Republican Party has control of the House… well, sort of… there is no good reason for any of Feinstein’s gun laws to sail through Congress.

Chicago Illinois , some of the most strict gun laws in the nation and more gun deaths than days in a year . If it gets that far they can have two registered but not the five we all have from the days you didn't have to register them. Make that three , I don't have bullets for two of them .

It's really getting nuts , In Jersey Angela Jiminez wants a law on the books that all prospective gun buyers must pass a psych exam and have access to your home and where the gun will be kept .

OH MY GOODNESS...that is so bogus. You have fabricated a complete lie....The Center for Disease Control did no such study....on GUNS!!! Go to their website and see for yourself.
Come on raise you hands all who fell for that bunch of made up malarky!
Sorry, I didn't FABRICATE it. Thou it does indeed support the concept that gun control laws don't control gun violence. Why would they, they are only designed to control those that abide by the laws.

She claimed that restrictions created more crime, your claims about the cited study show that not to be true. So your statement "it didn't" is false.
"Gun violence si not perpetrated by the law abiding?" LOL! Statistics concerning accidental deaths, suicides, and homicides arising from domestic disputes call you a liar. Unless you conveniently insist that the moment a crime or even an accident occurs the person involved automatically beccomes "lawless," which would sure be a convenient argument!:)
Well, duh! Of course one becomes lawless upon the committing of a crime. That is how a rap sheet begins, ya know. You're driving down the road and blow through a stop sign. Up until that point, you weren't braking the law, so......see the correlation?

A mob, you better pull your head out of your arse and realize the populace has more guns per capita than the army, navy and marines combined. Any attempts to disarm the population would be a blood bath.
