It really doesn't matter. In this country we have something called the U.S. Constitution that guarantees the right of law abiding citizens to
own a gun.

There isn't any bears or wolves living in the city, but there are plenty of two-legged sewer rats that people need to protect themselves from.

Actually the people made a foolish decision to take the law abiding poor mans gun away because a study said that criminals spent 75 dollars on their guns, and it also listed in the unimportant appendix that phrases that the predators used to described these guns; magnum, 6" barrel, chrome plated,.45 calibre.

Because of this the weakest of our citizens where condemned to become even more defenceless and as in other counties had their children stolen by guerrilla-militia (gangs) warlords to fight and kill each other over territory and taxes (protection, drugs, etc.).

The people who cry to get rid of guns always wish they had a gun when a thug has one pointed at them! Don't you have enough freakin sense to know that the criminals are going to have guns no matter what? Why don't you go on back to dreaming about rainbows and kittens and let the REAL Americans enjoy our freedom and our right to defend ourselves. I think the real problem here is that people like you are setting in their homes scared to face the real world. Spineless, smart mouthed citizens who are afraid of guns and life and they actually think in their fairy dusted brain that life would be so peaceful if they took our guns! Obama followers who can't think for themselves and who have drug America down and made us look FAR from the country we use to be. What do you really plan to do when you are sitting in your home and someone breaks in to rob, murder or rape you or someone you love? I don't think rainbows, care bears and unicorns will help you and neither will Obama!!

As one poster with the story said "We don't vote on inalienable rights! They are not subject to mob rule!" Enough, very well said! I can add nothing to it!
My president was elected by dead people!
