What's mind boggling is that the left really doesn't see it.

The fact that many brought guns to their demonstrations. Gun ownership also rose considerably when it was (incorrectly) spread that President Obama was going to do away with gun rights (he actually made it easier to own guns in the U.S and has done nothing to detract from gun rights - look it up - he signed into law one of the NRA's bills they lobbied for, for years).

So their obsession with gun ownership, and with their previous statements that "Obama ain't taking my gun away from me!" mentality and this photo, yes it's more of a concern.

Please explain/cite how Obama has made gun ownership easier. I haven't seen this. I'm an avid firearms person and I'm actually an instructor in fact.

Are you aware of the amount of crimes that are preventd by legally armed citizens? Hint: It's not miniscule. How will it stop crimes if only criminals have guns?

Are you also aware that many of the crimes are also committed by people who illegally own guns? Go back and read what I posted. The goal is to make it harder for people who should not own guns, to own them. I also see nothing wrong with making it illegal for the common citizen to own bazookas, surface to air missiles, fully automatic machine guns, etc. Many people, including myself, would not be able to sleep at night. I just see chaos erupting if we get rid of ALL gun control laws.

From the article:

Quote:
The legislation will allow firearm and ammunition manufacturers to pay federal excise tax on a quarterly basis, just as other industries do. In the past, firearm and ammunition manufacturers were unfairly mandated to pay their federal excise taxes biweekly while all other manufacturers paid their taxes quarterly


Thats your idea of making it easier for Americans to purchase firearms?

Surely you can't be serious.

You losing sleep means absolutely nothing.

Plenty of other idiots besides you also believe chaos would immediately erupt if guns were rightfully allowed to be owned/carried by private citizens in numerous states.

Those morons have been proven wrong time and again.

Not that it is any of your concern, but I fully support the second amendment. I am currently shopping for a handgun for myself. I feel even with strict gun control laws, it no way infringes on my right to bear arms. However, IF I was an unstable person, spouting a lot of signs promoting the killing of someone, and exhibited a lot of paranoid behavior, I would WANT someone to think twice of selling me a gun.

Clearly you have no idea what the definition of infringe means.

If you were unstable, you wouldn't care if someone didn't think twice about selling you a gun

Obama also made it legal to carry guns into National Parks. Though what that accomplishes, I do not know. But hey - the NRA wanted it badly.
