I'm assuming "Sanchez" is supposed to be a racist insult, but I hate to disappoint you. I'm Italian. Sorry. Perhaps you could call me "Ronzoni" instead?

American: Truth, Truth, Truth, Truth:

"As far as the whole body the people are necessary to the general defence, they ought to be armed; but the law ought to require more than is necessary; for that be a just cause of complaint."--Mr. Fitzsimons,[Pg. 1852]

"... Mr. Jackson said, that he was of opinion that the people of America would never consent to be deprived of the privilege of carrying arms. Though it may prove burthensome to some individuals to be obliged to arm themselves, yet it would not be so considered when the advantages were justly estimated."[Pg. 1852]

"In a Republic every man ought to be a soldier, and prepared to resist tyranny and usurpation, as well as invasion, and to prevent the greatest of all evils--a standing army. Mankind have been divided into three classes, Shepherds, Husbandmen, and Artificers--of which the last make the worst militia; but as the arts and sciences are the sources of great wealth to the community, which may excite the jealousy and avarice of neighbors, this class ought to be peculiarly qualified to defend themselves and repel invasions; and as this country is rising fast in manufactures, the arts and sciences, and from her fertile soil may expect great affluence, she ought to be able to protect that and her liberties from within herself ..."--Mr. Jackson [Pg. 1853]

"There are so few freemen in the United States who are not able to provide themselves arms and accoutrements, that any provision on the part of the United States is unnecessary and improper. He had no doubt that the people, if left to themselves, would provide arms as are necessary, without inconvenience or complaint; but if they are furnished by the United States, the public arsenals would soon be exhausted--and experience shows, that public property of this kind, from the careless manner in which many persons use it, is soon lost."--Mr. Sherman, Dec. 16, 1790.[Pg. 1854]

"He asked by what means minors were to themselves with the requisite articles? Many of them are apprentices. If you put arms into their hands, they will make good soldiers; but how are they to procure them? It is said, if they are supplied by the United States the property will be lost; if this is provided against, every objection may be obviated. He then offered an addition to the motion, providing for the return of the arms to the commanding officer."--Mr. Vining [Pg. 1855]

"Mr. Wadsworth apologized for detaining the attention of the committee a moment, while he asked the gentlemen who favored the motion what was the extent of their wishes? The motion at first appeared to be in favor of poor men, who are unable to purchase a firelock; but now it seems minors and apprentices are to be provided for. Is there a man in this House who would wish to see so large a proportion of the community, perhaps one-third armed by the United States, and liable to be disarmed by them? Nothing would tend more to excite suspicion, and rouse a jealousy dangerous to the Union. With respect to apprentices, every man knew that they were liable to this tax, and they were taken under the idea of being provided for by their masters; as to minors, their parents or guardians would prefer furnishing them with arms themselves, to depending on the United States when they knew they were liable to having them reclaimed." [Pg. 1855-56]....

West Virginia will NEVER give up her guns. So you Yankees keep taking your guns away. THAT WAY when we in the South decide to get REVENGE by invading your G$Y A$$ES it will be really easy.

High. I'm your new Editor-In-Chief, and the guy who's going to TAKE DOWN THIS BOARD. Build it back up in my likeness. And you all will profit and benefit from that.

Enjoy!

I realize it's difficult for you to understand the difference between STATE and FEDERAL laws. And this because of your obvious mental deficiencies. But, facts are FACTS.

Here, put THIS in your traitor-troll pipe and SMOKE IT:

Disarming Realities: As Gun Sales Soar, Gun Crimes Plummet

A couple of new studies reveal the gun-control hypesters’ worst nightmare…more people are buying firearms, while firearm-related homicides and suicides are steadily diminishing. What crackpots came up with these conclusions? One set of statistics was compiled by the U.S. Department of Justice. The other was reported by the Pew Research Center.

According to DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. gun-related homicides dropped 39 percent over the course of 18 years, from 18,253 during 1993, to 11,101 in 2011. During the same period, non-fatal firearm crimes decreased even more, a whopping 69 percent. The majority of those declines in both categories occurred during the first 10 years of that time frame. Firearm homicides declined from 1993 to 1999, rose through 2006, and then declined again through 2011. Non-fatal firearm violence declined from 1993 through 2004, then fluctuated in the mid-to-late 2000s.

And where did the bad people who did the shooting get most of their guns? Were those gun show “loopholes” responsible? Nope....

if this is true, wouldn't it be simply cheaper to give these individuals the 30-45 thousand a year it costs to incarcerate them as wages for not committing crimes? That said, if this is true, wait until they get out, they'll have morning wood for fresh victims, LOL.

You should talk! How many had to die, be maimed and displaced so you brainless friggen lunatics could have your war in Iraq - it's unconscionable! A legal abortion is limited to 12 weeks when a fetus is indistinguishable from a bird fetus or any other fetus, as usual, your claim is nothing but hysterical!

I wouldn't have to worry if retarded POS's like you would stop selling guns to felons and wife beaters, Retarded POS.

Been a long time since an aborted fetus was taken into a primary school and used to kill 20 children.

Wipe your chin, shug.
