    That really depends on where you live. New Orleans, Detroit, Gary, Oakland... yes, you would do well to own a handgun there. But there are just as many very safe cities as well.

    Fair game I suppose.

    The funniest part is they were able to carry their guns onto federal parkland because of a new law passed by the Democratic Congress and signed by Obama.

    FAIL



    Congress lifted the gun ban last spring, after years of efforts by a bipartisan coalition that said differences in state and federal firearms laws made it difficult for gun owners to travel between state and federal lands.

    The Bush administration had lifted the ban on concealed weapons in its final months, after pressure from gun rights groups, including the National Rifle Association. But a federal judge blocked the move last year. The Obama administration declined to appeal the ruling, and Congress passed the law. President Obama signed the measure without comment as part of a credit card reform package.

    I inferred nothing of the sort. You imagined it, because you're desperate. Same reason you follow me around and insert yourself into conversations you don't understand.

    In 1934 FDR thought placing an onerous tax on machine guns would get rid of the prohibition era gangs. He used the commerce clause to accomplish this unconstitutional bit of nonsense

    in 1968 we had the GCA of 68. It banned mail order guns, it prevented me, someone who lives 15 minutes from KY from buying a handgun there, and it set forth recordkeeping of gun purchases. You also had to show IDs to get ammo though that was rescinded later on.


    In 1986, in a violation of the senate rules etc Dem gun hater Congressman Hughes tried to derail the McClure Voker FOPA by attaching a ban on the ownership of any automatic weapon made after may 19, 1986 even though there had never been a case since the 1934 act of a machine gun legally owned being used in a crime save for a dayton cop killing someone with an uzi

    In 1993 the dems with clinton passed the brady bill. Though part of it was stricken (mandates on the states) it forced waiting periods on people thus engaging in prior restraint

    Then came the idiotic Clinton gun ban that banned the sale of scary looking guns and magazines that carried more than 10 rounds

    Other proposals dems have floated included a punitive "arsenal tax" on anyone owning more than a thousand rounds (two weeks of practice for a serious shooter) or 20 guns, bans on all semi autos, bans on all handguns, bans on certain calibers , etc.

    Yeah gun owners are paranoid--the dems never have any desire to infringe on our rights
    Actually I believe that the CALIFORNIA law was more of a "assault weapons" look alike ban then the Clinton ban.

    Ok so the activity in gun control or tightening up was 17 years ago so you have not explained why all of a sudden we have a fear of 2nd amendment going away. So this ties into Obama how ?
