Its our Constitutional right to bear arms. All of these political lame dick liberals want to be politically correct, and change things. Leave our beliefs alone, our country was founded on them. Go to Mexico if you don't like it here in the US. But I mean it whole heartedly that you will pry my gun out of my cold dead hands..........

I believe in gun control. I use both hands when I shoot. The smart thing is having plenty of ammo. I keep plenty in a climate controlled area to keep moisture out. The liberals will NEVER take our guns. They will try to make ammunition hard to get. Stock up citizens, you will not regret it.

Criminals have guns now. That is the very reason law abiding citizens should own them.What are we expected to do during a home invasion by armed criminals? Hit them with the remote control and hope they don't shoot. The phrase you are repeating isn't enlightenment.It is the same argument"when guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns". No, honest citizens will have guns because we won't give them up and they can't take them.At least they won't take them peacefully. I can shoot 268 times without having to reload and I am an average gun owner.If anyone comes to take my firearms it will get ugly.I hope it never comes to that.

I think that before a person can get a gun, they should be demanded to take a psychiatric evaluation, and if anyone disagrees with that then that means you are at risk of being crazy yourself.

I think before people post online they should have a psych evaluation, but unfortunately it won't happen. Lol Seriously though, the background check covers if you have had a psychiatric problem. They should be more thorough. I agree with the law and responsible gun ownership. I don't want to see anymore armed crazies killing people.

Really? How many other rights and liberties should require psychiatric evaluations before they can be exercised?
Anyone who believes in impediments to the exercise of constitutionally afirmed rights and liberties is a frustrated control freak.
Now THERE'S someone that should get a psychiatric evaluation!!

The first thing a fascist government does is disarm private citizens. That leaves all the weapons in the hands of the military and government. No governing body should be allowed to restrict ownership of small arms. I can understand restrictions on fully automatic and large weapons. Understanding doesn't mean I whole heartedly agree. I can't see an upside to owning grenade launchers. If anyone has a valid reason I welcome your opinion. We will not disarm.We supply the world with arms. Killing is a business and business is good.

I'd have problems passing a background check, so I'm going to the gun show in Grey this weekend. Since the Arizona shooting Glock 17s are hard to come by. Hopefully I'll come home with a 17 or a S&W MP in 9mm. Ive already got .380s, 40s and a 45. Please let there be a NIB G17 3rd generation available!

The Constitution explains it pretty well. But an old saying, "When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns." I'm not an outlaw, but I'm darned sure going to be able to protect myself from them!

Good comment! Fast forward over 200 years & you have not so smart liberals in charge who are trying to take our rights afforded by that powerful little paper.

Funny how the very politicians who oppose guns have armed body guards, isn't it?:)
