The article is extremely one-sided but does at least point out the silliness of an assault weapons ban.

I do like a few of the comments, though.

Quote
We're not trying to take away anyone's right to bear arms, we're only trying to take away certain types of arms that no one has any business with anyway.

We're not trying to take away anyone's right to free speech, we're only trying to take away certain types of speech that no has any business with anyway.

We're not trying to take away anyone's right to religion, we're only trying to take away certain types of religion that no has any business with anyway.

We're not trying to take away anyone's right to a free press, we're only trying to take away certain types of free press that no has any business with anyway.

You know? It sounds really damn weird when you try to make these anti-second amendment arguments apply to the first.

How about libel insurance for your free speech? Gags to be worn at all times in theaters to prevent the shouting of "fire" and demonstration of a college diploma before being allowed to post online.

These are acceptalbe infringments on your right to free speech no? O wait... "shall not be infringed" means not be infringed huh.

Why new laws could do what to Miss America's bigger gun problem??



(And I never even knew Miss America had a gun problem in the first place.)

Everybody Run, the Homecoming Queen has a gun.

If you think they are not trying to ban all guns, just remember what Feinstein said after the last AWB on 60 Minutes
"If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them -- Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in -- I would have done it."

She wants them all. All meaning from law abiding citizens. And they always follow with
"This is a good FIRST step."

I read the same article posted here and I had exactly the same thought. Let's start with the scary guns and then build the case for handguns.

"You don't really need one of those. What could you use that for?" - that was a comment I received for my Cold Steel knife at lunch the other day when I pulled it out and did not even deploy the blade. Next thing I know, I will be limited to a 1" pocket knife. Sheesh.

LOL

I carry a "Zero Tolerance" folder knife in my purse.  It's big, black, has a coated razor-sharp chisel point blade, and the ability to be fully extended just inches above my purse on the way out.  No, it's not assisted, but has a thumb catch on the blade.  I like the positive loud "click" it makes.  Just like racking an 870, people step back when they hear it.

Yeah Jim, I get the "why" comment there too!

...."just in case!"

Oh, sorry...  To be on topic, I personally believe firearms are a States Rights issue, not to even be addressed by the fed'ral guvmint.

Does anyone with a functioning brain actually believe that the 2nd Amendment is about the right to hunt sqirrels and rabbits? The Founding Fathers wrote it so that the citizenry had a way to rid themselves of a monarchial or dictatorial takeover of the government. They knew what it meant to be powerless under a King, without basic freedoms. They never wanted Americans to have to bow down to a Monarchy. The 2nd amendment is about having the weapons necessary to assault and overthrow a government that is attempting to strip the rights and freedoms of it's citizens to the point where the bootheels on the necks of the oppressed can no longer be tolerated. Our government isn't concerned that we will use these weapons on each other, they are scared shi-less that we will us them on the Corporatocracy that owns the meat puppets some call politicians.

Imo.  It's about the coming social unrest when the benefits, pensions, and freebies stop flowing.  Just take a 10 min look at greece and it's riots.  They are under major austerity for living under corpupt politicians and a above means lifestyle.  "Speed of the leader determines the rate of the pack". 

now....just imagine if 1/3rd - 1/2 of those civilians / rioters had fire arms..........

Our charade has a due date.  When, I have no idea.  I thought this sham would have been up by now.  When it finnaly pops, and us savers, the pensions, retirements, benefits, social security, medicare, medicade, etc, etc, etc are slaughtered via currency devaluation / default......don't you think some civilians that have arms might be a bit ticked??  This is what they are trying to disarm us for IMO.

Handy little item for purse or pocket. Razor sharp. Blade opens with one push of a button. These can be found at Walmart in the fabric dept. or at any fabric store for around $10 - $12.

Or, social unrest when the citizenry finds out the government has illegally traded federal land, assets, national parks, etc. to China as they attempt to turn held debt into equity.  I'm told that the administration has been in (not so) secret negotiations already. 

Ever wonder why China has suddenly become so outspoken on squelching our 2A rights?

I better shut up and go back to my corner before getting in trouble...

Im hoping that is all tin foil conspiracy.  Ive heard about it, im just praying it's not real.  Our leaders for decades have been selling out the country,...that would be the final nail in the coffin if they do that.  If they pimp out our resources for their bad decisions.....i can only imagine the chineese bringing their own army to protect their new assests.  God??  We could really use you right  now!!!!  I hope you see this!!!  Your meak servants need some help!!

I like this legal immigrant's ( he is sure  to point it out, haha ) argument that it is the decay of society, not the guns that are the problem.

Tom Selleck made this same arguement to loud mouth O'donnel when she attacked/threw herself under the bus before he walked off the set on her. Television history.

He remarked there was a change in the morals/upbringing of the population and that weapons were much easier to obtain before the 68' GCA. IMO one of the major problems is the lack and almost denial of personal responsibility that is taught & encouraged by the schools/govt/high profile personalities and we are seeing the fruits of that program grow by the day as our country slides down the hill of ruin

I couldnt agree more.  My liberal friends wont listen to me when i explain to them that movies, games, and guns are nothing more than aids to the crime.  The real problem for me is society decay, lack of value on human life, and psycho trophic over drugging.
