    Folks like chappy won't be coming for your guns, he'll send other folks sons and daughters to come for your guns. Folks who probably won't like what they are being ordered to do. But in a police state, that's the nature of the beast.

    true, but in that situation the proper targets or patriots are not the police officers doing the bidding but those who advocated such a police state.

    Someone's going to die, trying to take America's guns. You know folks like that are going to send someone to do the dieing.

    My only comment past this point on this topic, is that the outcome would be most unfortunate for all parties and my country as we know it.....

    which is why the proper remedy is to kill those who caused people to come take guns. that solves the problem much faster

    I voted "yes." There was no legal reason prior to this incident to deny the shooter the ability to purchase a legal firearm.

    You can't strip someone of their rights just because they don't get along with other people.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    That Republican idiot, Peter King? The one proposing the bill to make it illegal to carry a gun within 1000' of a lawmaker. (snicker)

    He was on the radio today. I heard him say THIS: "My bill will prevent anyone from bringing a gun within a thousand feet of a public official..."

    I. Laughed. My. Ass. Off.

    "My bill will PREVENT??" Oh really? It will magically jump up in front of a determined murderer and PREVENT him from bringing a gun within range of a Congressman??

    Yup... he is a total idiot. Too stupid to chew bubblegum and BREATHE at the same time.

    Mister King.... criminals do not obey the law. A man already determined to commit murder will not be deterred that he is breaking another law.

    What a dumbass.

    I'm vaguely embarrassed to be in the same country with him...

    Edit: Especially since, 1000 feet is well within the range of some long guns...

    He had committed no other offenses prior to the shooting. He also had not gone through any phsycriatric tests to prove that he was mentally incapable of owning a gun. As such, at the time that he bought the gun..yes he should have been allowed to buy the gun. Because for all intents and purposes he was a legally law abiding citizen of sound mind.

    It would be easy to say that we need to up the wait days before a person can buy a gun but what does that really accomplish? Loughner would have just been delayed a bit longer and would have done the shooting anyways at a later date. Or he could have just bought the gun 6 months before the shooting. Making any such requirement of waiting moot.

    Face it Chappy, your suggestions for making the obtainment of guns harder is silly at best.
