All American Dude

We’ll stop when we have all your guns and bibles.

Hopefully he’ll take them all.

Do loose cannon, gun toting, hillbillies think about anything else besides how many guns they can hoard? I hope Obama takes all your guns away just for spite. Really now, look at michman. The guy thinks he’s Clint Eastwood or something.

He can’t go anywhere. The second amendment still stands.

Oh yes the criminals will suddenly abide by the law and give up their guns (typical liberal mindset). Since liberals are scared of the bad guys, they wanna punish the good guys.

Maybe if you crazy right wingers did not run around KILLING people with assault weapons and stockpiling them and calling for armed revolution, then your guns would be safe.

You’re abusing your right to carry them and THATS why people then call for gun bans. You are creating your own hell by your actions. Use your guns and speak like sane people and others will not be scared and take away your guns.

I am a Liberal and once I get the money I was thinking of buying a gun. I need to protect myself from your crazy conservatives. How many more Unitarian Churches are you going to attack? How many more police are you going to kill? How many more abortion clinics and gay bars are you going to blow up? And you wonder why we don’t trust you with a loaded gun!

some cling to guns and religion much? More ppl have been killed south of the border from idiots with guns than soldiers in 6 long years of iraq war..whack these morons already here in the states before they kill off the american civilization.

Thank God I am going to gun show tomorrow. A person with a gun is a Citizen, an unarmed person is a subject. Couple that fact with the words of Patrick Henry who said “I do not know what course others may take but as for me give me liberty or give me death,” and it is clear for all to see Obama does not care about the Constitution.

I read him saying that he wants to ban assault rifles, not all guns.

As he said in that article you reference: “I continue to believe that we can respect and honor the Second Amendment right in our Constitution — the rights of sportsmen and hunters and homeowners that want to keep their families safe”

You do realize that there was a ban on assault weapons previously, but the Republicans allowed the ban to expire. Now, assault weapons are being bought in America and taken across the border to Mexico. A new ban would hopefully stop this trade in arms.

Probably not far enough. In fact he seems to have pretty much backed off it given how hard it will be to pass any regulation though congress. Do your really think unregulated distribution of assault rifles are a good thing? And Michman what happened to Clinton? He became the best president since FDR? He presided over the lowest unemployment rate and greatest economic growth period in American history? Those don’t seem like bad things to me.

King Midas

It’s amazing people complain about the economy but they can afford to buy assault rifles and ammo. That’s democracy. Get your priorities straight America!!!!!

Compare the words of nazi leaders and those of our founders. It isn’t hard to see which side today is aligned with whom

Those now possessing weapons and ammunition are at once to turn them over to the local police authority. Firearms and ammunition found in a Jew’s possession will be forfeited to the government without compensation … Whoever willfully or negligently violates the provisions … will be punished with imprisonment and a fine.
– Nazi Law Regulations Against Jews’ Possession of Weapons, 11 Nov 1938, German Minister of the Interior

to disarm the people – that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
– George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 380

“[The Constitution preserves] the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
–James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46

“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
– Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers at 184-188
