Obama and the socialist progressives want to take our guns away even though he says he doesn`t. That is why he supports the UN`s world disarmament to ban all privately owned weapons.

Anyone who registers their weapons with the government is a fool and setting themselves up for weapon consfication as they will know where they are when it`s time to get them. Telling your doctor if asked that you are a firearms owner is another avenue for Feds to know where the guns are as from Obamacare the feds have access to your medical records. SO much for HIPPA huh? No privacy when it comes to this administration.

New York Democrat Gov.Cumo came out a couple of weeks ago stating that he favors gun confiscation, some say that he`s planning a future run for President.

Keep in mind that Hitler conficated guns before world war 2 so he`d limit his opposition to taking over the world. Poland, Czeklavokia, Russia and others had gun confiscation before they were all forced to Communism.

Remember it was Russian President Gorbechov who told President Regan that we would never invade the U.S. because you will be destroyed from within. His predictions seem to be bearing fruit as the obama administration is doing it`s best to destroy over 200 years of freedom and liberty.

We are of a few nations on earth who has never been attacked by anothers military on our own soil due to the fact that we are the most armed nation in the world and others who would wish us harm are of the belief that it wouldn`t just be our military but the civilian population that they would be fighting as well. We must not allow the politicians to destroy our edge against our enemies

Our constitutional rights are protected by the democratic republic formed by the founding fathers and are not subject to public opinion, nor were they meant to be. The Republicans are doing exactly what they are supposed to do, upholding the constitution and preserving the constitutional rights of their constituents. The day they take one step away from that right and proper stance will be the day I am no longer a Republican.

you are correct this issue is the only issue that the republicans have it right as a voter that voted for Obama I would never have voted for him if he had ran on a gun control platform I just for the first time in my adult life would not have voted I feel like the republicans want our retirement and health insurance (which Obama is giving to them anyway)and the republicans are certainly rich boy toys as are the democrats just slightly less! both are bought and paid for by corporations to do their bidding. when republicans allowed warrant less wiretaps the democrats threw a fit and now they are doing it themselves back to gun rights the democrats were arguing that Obama "has not asked for one single gun law" he did not run on this platform and now before he is inaugurated for his second term BAM!!! he went right to it and I sent a large check to the N.R.A and I am sick that I voted for him he is a liar! plain and simple I just wish the Republicans had a better candidate than Romney because he was as big a scoundrel in different ways it cost a billion dollars to RUN for president in this country =just for president politicians spent over a trillion dollars last election this is not my government any longer I don't have the money to be a part of that kind of government do you? this is a corporate government and they are having our employees (the government) smash us in the ground! and they control our military? I am afraid!
