Yeah, Mexico has a tough gun policy also. I wonder what's killing all those people along the border ? Sticks & Stones ?

I live in the old, inner city part of town, so I guess if I want to buy guns and hunt bullies, I have to move out to the country club suburbs, and meet bullies at the mall.

Unless you mean that I get to wave a gun to deter the bullies at my cable company and the DMV, who are the only ones that affect my life.
I don't know . . . maybe you're built like a pro wrestler. If not, maybe you've just been lucky.

Being gun free would be the mark of a totalitarian dictatorship. The dictators will have guns and the citizens won't. That is the ultimate aim of so-called "gun control" legislation. They want to scare us into volunteering to give up our rights so it will be easier for the dictators when the New World Order dictatorship moves in.

By the way, I've never owned a gun in my life. But I support peoples' rights to own them. The founders of the Constitution understood that people need to be protected from a tryannical government and that those who give up liberty in the name of security will have neither.

I absolutely agree, guns are so important to our culture and who we are as Americans. The Liberals know that they won't be able completely ban firearms, because our 2nd amendment states, "Citizens have the right to bare arms" however this is where the Libs are going to act. They believe, that it says nothing about "LOADED ARMS". It's really nonsense, but they think it's a loophole that'll heavily restrict ammunition, raise the prices astronomically, and put serial numbers on every bullet. Imagine a serial number on every bullet that's linked to you after purchase. People will be have to be so cautious by not losing them, giving some away, etc, etc..

Who are these liberals you are talking about? A gun without ammo is a club, and does not quality as "arms". No liberal would ever argue to the contrary. Unlike the other side, liberals know how to look up words in the dictionary.

If the liberals argued the points you attribute to them, they would tell you that "arms" are "weapons", and if the government lets you bear a pitchfork, the second amendment rights are not infringed. The constitution just says "arms"---NOT "firearms". Constitutionally, the government could take away, by force, all firearms, and would not violate the second amendment if they let you bear pitchforks, steak knives, slingshots, and juggernauts.

All lliberals acknowledge that the second amendment is to be interpreted as "Firearms", and gun is not a firearm if it is not loaded and there is no access to ammunition. A "firearm" is a combination device of ammunition and a means to deliver the round using explosive force. Lacking either, it is not a firearm.

A question often asked and never answered is, post a link to a reputable liberal who has stated his desire to have all useful firearms taken away from the general public. If you cannot do that, then stop saying there are such liberals.

What do you think an "assault weapon" is cap1717?
Give a definition.

While you are looking things up - why don't you find links to stories where a Police Officer had their gun taken from then and then was shot and killed with their own weapon.

I believe you can find more than a couple of stories like this -
