    Maybe...and seeing how that scenario is extremely unlikely I guess I ain't ever gonna care. Jesus, is this how we make national policy now, especially law against our rights? I put up with Bush doing it for so long. Let's make unlikely hypotheticals and base laws off of those! The terrorists may come and get me, so we need to allow for domestic spying and undeclared, occupational war and nationalized ID and all the other crap that was sold to us on a small probability outcome. Thanks! Some guy from a mental institution will escape and apparently have money for a gun and buy one and run around and shoot up the place! Quick...ban guns, take away the right, turn it into a State granted privilege!

    Free is not safe. It has never been safe, it is not safe, and will never be safe. There are always dangers inherent to freedom. While there are legitimate means by which probabilities can be decreased, many things will never drop to zero. There's always going to be a chance of something bad happening because we allow our rights to be exercised. Permits such as CCW and open carry are terrible, you shouldn't need them because you have the right to keep and bear arms. Meaning you can carry them. Registration is right out because there is no need for the government to keep track on what guns I have, they can keep their noses out of it. Maybe background checks if they're instantaneous. That's about the only one close to legitimate.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    It's so funny how our negative right places so much sand in these guy's vaginas.
    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.

    To me, its scary that so many think that there should be no regulations, no limitations...
    Solution .....Transport all these nut cases back to the Stone Age - where they belong, along with bin Laden and the Islamic extremists.

    It's funny to see you guys comparing people who own guns to the Taliban and Bin Laden.

    I see the media is doing their job.

    Oh, btw, because I choose to own firearms doesn't make me a nut.. It makes me a citizen of the United States who exercises his right to bear arms.

    You fail, we were the nutcases. At least that what the left tries to portray when they make the terrorists=the FF's argument.

    Why? Do you not have self control?

    Well that's not too hoplophobic.

    There is no such thing as a collective right. Only individuals possess rights.

    You know, cops shoot a lot more people than civilians. You may be on to something ...
