    Re: White House to Push Gun Control

    Ultimately, I am not for hindering people from owning guns. After all the hoorah I will admit that I am an avid gun owner. They are fun at the range and most people do not use them for bad. My point to all the debate, besides being fun, is that we always have the same discussions over guns and insane people, yet nothing gets done and another crazy shoots up a mall and what is the most egregious for me is that a CHILD got killed. We need to take a second look when a 9-year old cannot go see her representative without being safe.

    As to the machine guns and bannanna clips, banning them would make no real difference, but like my shooting partners and I like to say, never fear the guy who needs fifty rounds, he probably can't shoot for s**t! Fear the guy with the single shot rifle, cause he only needs one!

    You're right, it is unreasonable... because owning a car and driving are not Constitutional rights, so they are less important than gun rights.

    So basically this is a "Won't someone PLEASE think of the children" argument?
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    It's "farce", and guns are a tool and not made for the sole purpose of death. Just as a knife is not made for the sole purpose of death. Guns are used as a tool, for sport, at one time for hunting and survival, and are now used for competition, self defense and yes, for war too. To simplistically say guns have one purpose is obtuse. Apparently my work with you is just starting - just call me sensei.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Easy killer, no one wants to take your gun. We would just hack eachother up with swords.

    No, its at some point you have to just think about someone other than yourself argument. Thats the problem in this country, everyone just says, "what about me."

    Goshin, you are totally merciless smacking people around with the Constitution like that. You know, the Constitution is considered a "weapon of mass destruction" to some people?

    I don't think I appreciate that remark very much. My name isn't "killer". I could live without the condescension also.

    It matters not. I don't make fun of people with speech impediments.
