if the odds were a little more better than that punk having the only gun in that place maybe the table would be turned. sick people would have a little more too think about before they start shooting. something has too change, but not taking our guns.

I agree. Also, I think the media should not show any pictures of these people who want the fame for doing such a horrible act of violence.Shave their hair and try to humilate them. Conceal & carry might make a person think twice.

Guns for every one, except the negros. Bullets for them, well half a bullet that is. The only good negro is a dead negro.

There were over 600,000 hunters this past season in the state of Wisconsin. Over the last several months, Wisconsin's hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.

More men under arms than in Iran, more than France and Germany combined.

These men deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed.

That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan's 700,000 hunters, all of whom have now returned home safely. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.

Add to that the total number of hunters in the other 46 states and it becomes millions more.

Hunting is not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter of national security. That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.

Overall it's true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don't possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain... What army would want to face 30, 40, 50 million armed citizens?

I'm glad to be part of the world's largest army.

"Obama & the Global Push to Ban Small Arms in the United States"


"Senator Rand Paul has called for opposition to what now appears to be a new attempt at circumventing our constitution with the signing of a small arms treaty that would essentially eliminate the second amendment."

If someone kills children with a gun just like one of the guns I own, why should I have to give up mine? Isn't that punishing me for the crime they commited? I can't get anyone to answer these question and I guess thats because the answer is so obvious.

FBI statistics show that more people are killed each year in America with hammers and blunt instruments than with rifles.

How many people have been killed with the very guns our government supplied to the Mexican drug lords through "Fast and Furious"? Last I heard it was approaching 60 known killed.

Two weeks ago a CIA prison transport plane headed for the US crashed in northern Mexico, it was carrying 4 tons of cocaine. The pilots survived but disapeared and no news station will even mention the incident. Now my government wants me to give up my guns because someone else used theirs for the wrong reason, not going to happen.

You can Google, "CIA and cocaine" and see the history of how the CIA deals in cocaine sold on American streets to our children to finance weapons for foreign rebels and they want me to give up my guns, not going to happen, I will die first.

People should not have a gun store business being run out of their house. If they do they should have to pay sales taxes to pay for the increased road traffic.
