“The desire to disarm the American people will never go away. They will do it by any means possible. The next angle will be mental health. Label someone as mentally defective in order to take their gun away. Don't fall for it.”

“Yes, after every shooting, the anti liberty crowd will screech about how much safer we are if we give up our right to self defense. Nothing will change.”

speedykeen on Dec 10, 2013 at 12:05:42

“Does pretending that expanded background checks, and limits on mag size, and on sales of assault weapons encroach upon your "right to self defense" better help you to manufacture rage?”

“Actually around my Christmas Tree? Will be numerous Guns, Including Many Assualt Rifles for the Kids... You have 2 choices in this life, be a Wolf or a Sheep...
My family aren't Sheeple.
I don't turst ANYONE that doesn't have enough common sense to learn to use a firearm and carry one on a daily basis....
I've been a Deputy Marshal for 30 years now, and I KNOW we can't protect you... you have to take responsibility to protect yourself and your family, grow up!
You are ONLY able to even express your opinion on here because of Men and Woman with Guns...”

“The only thing any kind of gun control does is make it safer for criminals to commit crimes.”

ponchoparadise on Dec 10, 2013 at 11:25:43

“Why do you people always think that there is some grandiose plot to take away your guns? It's like a fricken sickness.
It is GUN CONTROL !!!!!!!!!
Reasonable regulations to keep gun out of the hands of people who will splatter
Blood, guts and brain matter of seven year old children all over school hallways and rooms.
These same reasonable GUN CONTROL regulations would likewise take guns out of the hands of many of the criminals you fears.
No one wants to take away your guns.”

jsimms on Dec 10, 2013 at 11:25:24

“Amen! Criminals will always obtain guns and ammo on the black market. It's law abiding citizens like me that have to purchase guns on the up and up.
GUN CONTROL DOES NOT WORK!!!!!”

“Obama is helping the rich get richer, by adding rules, regulations and mandates to keep competition to a minimum. He is also helping the poor get poorer, by increasing the competition (from the middle class) for the benefits that used to be provided to the most vulnerable.”

Wyvern Wycliffe on Dec 9, 2013 at 20:35:37

“I know a way to obtain a "machine gun" (a select fire automatic rifle), completely legally. It would be a royal pain, but I could do it. I have the access to the FFL dealer and to the county sheriff that I would need, and there is a process by which it is lawful in my state.

On the other hand, a plastic gun, lawful or not, doesn't exist.

I wonder what people would make of a Glock17 -- a select fire, plastic bodied handgun... Almost, but not quite, impossible to acquire lawfully in the USA....”

vonrall on Dec 9, 2013 at 20:29:04

“If you don't have a criminal record , your law state allows it , and you are willing to pay the cost of a machine gun (they're not cheap) and the small Federal fee it is legal to own a machine gun of any type.”
