And, no, the POTUS and Mrs. POTUS are not the "Dad of the country". A statement like this indicates the fundamental ignorance with which uneducated people view the federal government.

The federal government's numbered powers are;

1) regulation of interstate commerce,

2) regulation of import/export,

3) crimes against the federal government, and,

4) national security.

Through the US constitution, we the AUTHORITIES, authorize the federal government's existence, therefore we are the mommies and daddies of the federal government.

Add him to the host of celebrities who should keep their mouths shut on this subject.

Chris, please stick to what you know; the Bro-in-chief doesn't need your help in ruining this country.

Hey Chris, don't quit the day job. Stick to comedy, and leave the serious stuff to the grown-ups.

These men and women have been threatening to kill a certain group and getting away with it for years now. even crazies in the same group are threatening to kill their own. They need to be shunned. Every man has a right to defend himself from others who threaten them. The media is actually fanning the flames of this causing people to purchase weapons. Especially as more are realizing that racial crime is about 90% against them and they are not being told the truth.

Chris Rock....doesn't he have ARMED BODYGUARDS to protect him? Most celebrities do. So, Chris, you can have armed protection but, us common folk, including your law abiding black brethren, can't is that what you are saying? Oh, and we need to restrict the magazine size so it makes it harder for us law abiding citizens to fight off 2, 3 or more thugs trying to rape, pillage and plunder.

Bruce Willis understands why we need the 2nd Amendment that is left alone. It must be from his time living in Idaho. Way to go Bruce but Chris "Elitist" Rock, leave the 2A alone!

I've watched numerous war movies, westerns, action movies, Bronson "Death Wish series", etc. etc. etc. and never wanted to hurt anyone. Those weak minded mentally unstable types will always find something to trigger their insanity so Bruce was telling the truth.

Regardless, murders are down 10,000 a year since 1992 and violent crime overall is down over 50% over the same era, so your base assertion doesn't hold water.

Chris Rock should just advise Obama to send the troops into Chicago, and clean out the scumbags who own illegal guns and kill people over a frigging parking spot, and they do it for fun with impunity under the new scumbag mayor Emanuel, same as with Daley, both liberal douchebags.

I think your not only missing the point but you arenít looking ahead by the Numbers and by using those this LULL in Murders/Crime rate will be fleeting

Simple Math
50.4% of US. Births in 2011 was Minorties, That means the Majority will be the Blacks, Hispanics. Etc
http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/nation/st...

So lets look at the Fed. Gov report that breaks down Murders by race

Hispanics are 3 times more likely to murder the Non Hispanics whites. Blacks are 7 times more likely to murder then Non Hispanic whites..

Using basic MATH and Birth rates., This inst rocket science

Now refer to that actual numbers in Incarceration rates by Race and Ethnicity
http://www.prisonpolicy.org/graphs/raceinc.ht...

Number of people incarcerated per 1000,000 by Race in 2010

Whites 390
Hispanics 966
Blacks 2,207

So the point is if you LOOK at the Future by the numbers,(I deal in FACTS and Numbers) the projected CRIME will DOUBLE in not so near future..

Your comparing bad to WORSE in Murder rates saying things are getting better. I am using actual numbers and math to show the actual trend over long term negates your point

I've killed lots of pixels in the Battlefield series of games and when I was a kid, we played cowboys and indians, army, had dirt clod wars but never have pulled a real gun in anger. I hope I never have to. I have friends who have kids who are "ADHD" if you believe that mumbo jumbo and the school tried to put them of Ritalin. Well, Mom and Dad said NO and they now homeschool their son. So, once again, it's the mentally unstable ones either with or without drugs who have the issues not us law abiding citizens exercising our 2A rights. Oh, I'm 53 YO and served in the US Armed Forces for 30 and have never even assaulted anyone in all of those years since childhood. Chris Rock is an elitist with bodyguards that are armed. Of course, he is for gun control as he is an Obamabot!
