To think that the United States will never suffer a "ruler" rather than a properly elected "leader" is like a 21-year old woman playing Russian Roulette with her birth control, having "faith" that she won't become pregnant by "being careful". It's a dangerous thought process. Bad government grows like a weed when not held accountable. Gun rights are a reminder for wannabe dictators.

Sat, 30 Mar 2013 03:06:03 +0000 http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/?p=841388#comment-31811841 Over 100 million guns in this country! If you correlate this with the population, that's roughly one third of the population owns firearms. If there were 100,000 murders per year, that means you have .01 percent murder rate due to guns! Now, if you take and multiply $40 bucks times 100 million gun owners for background checks fees, the government gets quite a bit of money, don't you think?? They don't care about the violent crime because that will continue with any unconstitutional legislation that they pass. Gun control has not helped in the past nor will it in the future, but fees will as always!! Over 100 million guns in this country!

Certainly, if Rosa parks had the right to sit at the front of a bus, we have a right to defend ourselves!

Decent law abiding citizens are being treated as though they are criminals and presumed dangerous without a "real" reason of suspicion or due process.

Whoever made that school in Connecticut a gun free zone should be charged conspiracy to commit murder... If they think making gun manufacturers responsible for anti depressant drug induced wackos, we can surely make morons such as Feinkenstein responsible the next time a person dies because they were made defenseless by foolish laws. "Universal" background checks do not cover illegal immigrant gang members who commit over 80% of the gun crimes or people in the white house! . There are over 20 million illegals in this country with no background information at all and many have illegal weapons so how is this going to stop crime? It's not! It will only form a list for the FEDS to confiscate weapons from law abiding citizens. Their ultimate goal...
 Felons do not need to register their 'guns'. Consider a law that requires registration of firearms: a convicted felon cannot be convicted for failing to register a gun, because it is illegal under Federal law for a felon to possess a firearm; but a person who can legally own a gun, and fails to register it, can be punished. In short, the person at whom, one presumes, such a registration law is aimed, is the one who cannot be punished, and yet the person at whom such a registration law is not principally aimed (i.e., the law-abiding person) can be punished.
It isn't any different than the witch burnings in Salem. Have we not progressed more than that?

BTW Mr Biden, Civil Rights do not have "loopholes"; just FYI. Stand up now, Americans, or forget it. It's now or never.

Will DHS or whoever gets tasked going door to door Kill those Americans? Is that a reduction of gun violence? Is that why you (the Feds) ordered 2 mil of no hesitation targets of old people children and pregnant women and 2 billion bullets? Just gonna murder those folks huh? or what if the people rise up and fight the gun confiscators? Another civil war? Will that save lives? How about instead, enforce laws already on the books. that would surely save lives. you and Obama are the worst president to take office in my lifetime. Try listening to the people and quit trampling the American Constitution. you will have American blood on your hands you despicable traitor. open fire on Americans new litmus test for military commanders? Everyone involved should be rounded up and shot for high treason. That's my opinion Joe, what about all the Americans who refuse to give up their guns.

It is beyond disgusting! They can't balance a budget, they can't stop their out of control spending. They forced Obamacare down our throats and now we will all suffer for that. And don't get me started on Bengazi and Fast and Furious. While legal U.S. citizens suffer from Joe and Obama's bad decisions, be it sequester, new taxes, etc. they still manage to find funds for foreign aid. This country has really gone to HELL! 3 more years and 9 more months of being bullied by an administration that can only focus on gun bans, gay rights and allowing illegals to continue to enter the country and then reward them with a path to citizenship.

These gun haters weep over these kids killed in schools and theaters and in their next breath claim the right to kill innocent babies by abortion. Then they throw GOD out of the schools and then ask where he was at when this happened? They believe the earth is going to emplode because of man when its only doing what it has always done. Then I think they still trying to trace their ancesters back to monkeys! You just cant fix stupid? You just cant fix stupid!
