A Gun A day Will Keep Everyone Away

A well regulated Militia,
 being necessary to the security of a free State, 
the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, 
shall not be infringed.
Second Amendment 

I want to first say I think it was tragic that 6 people died, Congress woman got shot in the head and 19 others were injured. It's a devastating story about the 9 year old girl born on September 11, 2001, killed by the gunman. I feel so bad for her family. There were Hero's in the crowd like the Grandma who sacked the shooter, God bless her. The question is have I changed my stand on Gun Control. No way.

California is trying to ban "open carry." At least with open carry you can see who has the gun. This is an in your face group who like to rile up the anti- gun people.

Washington DC - a bill so people who work for the government can carry a concealed weapon. Hum the government can carry guns but we can't, I have a problem with that. 

The chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security Peter King of New York wants to  introduce a bill that would ban " knowingly" carrying a firearm within 1,000 feet of government officials. Do you really think a law saying you cannot carry a gun within 1,000 feet of a government official is going to help? It seems to me most people who are determined to kill or shoot a government official will try to do so, law or no law. Can you hear the crazed gunman say Oh I can't shoot that government official today because the law says I can't. I had better go home and put my gun away in the safe and make sure the trigger lock is on.

We have a right to bear arms to protect ourselves from the government and the local gang bangers.

Do you think that only the government and the gangbanger should have guns and I should not?
No way.

I feel they will use this situation to go forward to try to take away the right to bear arms. They have wanted to for a long time and they will try to push legislation again.

NO, I do NOT think the government should have ANY privileges that we do not have, including better health care and pensions that do not include mandatory social security withholding!

Of course all the evil jerks will have guns. I plan on getting one soon and not registering it so no one can take it away from me.

You are not alone!

Laws only work for law-abiding citizens. Those who don't follow these laws will not follow any new laws. It's just ridiculous. They need to proscute those who abuse the current laws sufficently, and make examples of them so people don't want to break the laws anymore.
We had an incident in our town today: routine traffic stop, guy shot at the deputies and a man-hunt shut down our town for hours. Think this guy was a law follower? Um, NOPE! But every person in ths town was thankful for the firearms we have to protect ourselves from this person while he was on the loose!


'A Gun a Day Will Keep Everyone Away'
LOL, a great saying, not quite accurate though, they will just go for reinforcements. You are right; we must never underestimate their selfishness or dishonesty.
