    Your "maybe" is nothing but a conspiracy theory that ranks up there with the birthers.
    Let's stop fooling ourselves into believing that it can't happen.

    Twelve Democratic senators have joined 45 Republicans in a fast growing movement to halt progress on an Obama-backed United Nations effort that could bring international gun control into the United States and slap America's gun owners with severe restrictions.

    So who said you had to buy one? See, this is where liberalism goes off the rails. You think because your experience in life has been such that you didn't feel the need to own a firearm, you don't think anyone else should either....It isn't up to you bro.

    In other news: the ATF is now accusing thousands of Americans of straw purchases over the Christmas season...

    .. Let's stop pretending you read articles and how actually read them? The UN Arms Trade Treaty has absolutely zero to do with US domestic gun laws. It has to do with international arms trading. It's the difference between you having the right to own a guitar and you having the right to own a guitar made out of endangered wood taken illegally from India. In the case of this treaty, you'd have the right to purchase whatever guns your mind wants. You don't have the right to become a gun runner and sell those guns in Ethiopia. Reading past the initial shock value of the articles we post is a great idea apdst. You should try it.

    Actually, no. Never have. Even when I lived in Atlanta and Jacksonville.

    No one and am not claiming anyone did. Nor have I claimed no one should and have asked for no law prohibting any legal ownership. I said I merely don't understand the thought process, or the love of guns for that matter. It is nothing more than something I don't understand. I've called for nothing to be done about it.

    Yeah, I'm sure this has to do with the Obama presidency and nothing to do with, oh, say, hunting rifles being bought at lower Christmas sales prices by people who already own hunting rifles or for teenage boys (or even some girls) coming of age whose fathers think it's time they had their own hunting rifle. Or pistols being bought again at lower Christmas sales prices for self-defense because the Republican Party is reducing pay to law enforcement officers making those agencies less likely to prevent crime.

    I'm sure those things have nothing to do with it at all. Instead let's blame the Kenyan Muslim Fascist Socialist Marxist Anti-Christ.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
