Illinois recently was slapped by the Federal Court, striking down its ban on concealed weapons.

Emanual can't even prevent the multiple MURDERS in his city, weekend after weekend, and how many of those guns used in those murders are LEGAL??

Restricting any type of gun keeps LAW ABIDING citizens from owning them; those who break the law could care less about any weapons ban.

470 homicides this year in Chicago!!

Ever notice how the people that are calling for weapons to be banned and stripped from the people are always the same type of people?

Their the men or women who were born on 3rd base and think they hit a homerun. The people who will sit there on TV and lie to your face because they think they are better than you.

The same people who have never been in a fight in their entire lives. The high school class president's and student body council members, the kiss asses, the brown nosers, the suck ups. You know the people I am talking about.

And now these very same people want to pull your guns and violate your right to bear arms.

All at the same time these suck ups are making deals behind closed doors to convince you through media that you "NEED" their mind altering prescription drugs. Do not mind the fact that they can make you crazy, have violent tendencies, suicidal thoughts.

Rohm Emanuel vowed to take advantage of every crisis and especially the tragedy of killing young kids 6 years old by madman that touched the hearts of each America as well as the people of the world. With 300 million guns of all kinds plus the automatic guns of ‘Fast and Furious’ that Obama and Holder voluntarily sent to the terrorists and criminals in Mexico, ‘the horses are out the barn’ already. Reducing the number of assault guns will not solve the problem but will embolden the Chicago gangsters and other madmen of America knowing that they can get advantage over their victims. American purchased more guns during the four recent years because of their distrust of Obama and his new world order in which the UN control the world and protect the lives of Americans from criminals and gangsters that roam free in Rohm Emanuel and Obama home city of Chicago and all over America. The fact that elementary school is left without any security, including even one hand gun, or even one Maze tear gas which could make the attacker out of his senses is the reason for one madmen can kill 27 people before the Connecticut police coming to help after 10-15 minutes after the start of the attack. Only guns or tear gas will keep madmen out of schools when limited police force cannot protect the lives of the American people when it takes so much time for the first police force to arrive. The madman killed himself and the police did nothing to save even one kid. Obama regime and liberalism aim at increasing their dictatorship rule over American people and reducing their liberty to minimum and removing guns for self defense only increase the danger of America falling under dictatorship of Obama.

They are pros at it. Just ask the Mexicans or the Terrys. They'll tell you.

THOMAS JEFFERSON Quote: "When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."

Variations:

1."When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

2."Does the government fear us? Or do we fear the government? When the people fear the government, tyranny has found victory. The federal government is our servant, not our master!"

3.“When the people fear the government, that's tyranny; when the government fears the people, that's freedom.”

Dead Fish is just another leftside lacky that will politisize anything. Well excepty Obama deserting the people and our Ambassador in Benghazi. Wonder if guns are so bad, why Obama bought a billion rounds of hollowpoint ammo. The same as the kid used in Conneticut.

The NRA and Fox “News,” as fronts for the currently insane Republican Party, stand in opposition to to banning the sale of assault weapons. Of course, only insecure men feel the need to go hunting to bag animal trophies and only the most Looney Tunes among them feel the need to do it with assault rifles. It is also the Looney Tunes who use assault rifles to massacre children and innocent victims at random.

Let’s repeal the insanity. Let’s stop selling assault weapons. Let’s not forget to care in a couple of weeks.

It would be better if rahm would focus on the numerous murders in Chicago and leave responsible law abiding gun owners alone!
