    And plenty of ammo and weapons for our hunters, plus open season on deer.
    I don't know.......some people are ticking time bombs ready to go off......How do you account for them?

    So you, of all people, want the government to walk down the line and decide who does and doesn't get guns? Really?

    You want government to take away the Constitutional right of anyone who has had the smallest mental issue?? When did you become so anti-gun, my left-wing friend?

    Every right comes with certain responsibilities so that the right is not abused for evil purposes such as the right to bear arms.

    Just because you have that right does not allow you to commit acts of violence.

    No right is absolute.

    Ahahahahaha, now you're calling people left wing for opposing gun legislation. You're really all over the place. I knew I could count on you for a laugh.

    Citizens can't use force to take guns away, I don't know what kind of magical situation you're imagining. Citizens walking around saying "I'm seizing your guns using my citizen powers"?

    It's always the state using force.
