"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
The " they are gonna take your gun away" ploy is a well used ploy used on the masses. Put it up there with the death squads out to kill grandma.
No president is ever going to take away all our guns. If we the most powerful country in history can't find Bin Laden or every illegal alien how in hell do you think they could remove every gun?
Perhaps these promoters of this cause should support fighting obesity in our country. We are the 3rd fattest country in the world. Most Joe Fatty Arbuckles here in a real assault are so out of shape that the adrenalin rush would cause so much shaking they couldnt shoot straight. Well alone if they could pluck their fat butts out of the Lazy Boy.
Fight obesity and reduce it and we wouldn't need any kind of health care reform. But that would take work and basically Americans are lazy. Why go to the gym and work off the lard and maybe take a martial arts class when one can go buy a gun and feel protected? Kind of like some fat women who go out on spend a fortune on makeup for their face while the rest of their body looks like the Hindenburg.
But maybe your intent was to stir up people, rather than provide facts.Mexico: Why Is U.S. Backing Away From Gun Ban? - Newsweek.com

You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
