Being logical with these cowardly Liberals is futile. The solution is 2 separate States one Liberal & one for the True Champions of Liberty & Individual Freedoms...The liberals claim to be for liberty & individual freedoms when infact they want to deliver us into the hands of a Totalitarian Dictatorship & systematical stripping us of our rights...Now they want to strip us of our means to self defense!


THE ONLY COMPREHENSIVE GUN CONTROL SOLUTION IS A 2 STATE SOLUTION. ONE WITH-OUT GUNS LIKE ILLINOIS,NEW YORK CALIFORNIA AND THE MAJORITY OF THE CURRENT STATES THAT UPHOLD THE 2ND AMENDMENT CAN FORMER THEIR OWN UNION!

DC does not have gun control all you have to do is get in a car or ride the metro to Virginia just accross the Potamac River. You can get all the guns your heart desires in Virginia. Virginia really needs to change its state slogan to "Virginia is for Gun Lovers".

That's impossible. How can you bring guns from Virgina to a gun controlled DC???

We have plenty of history of banning things and how well that has worked. I do not believe anyone thinks that banning guns will do a thing. We have banned drugs. Drugs are available on nearly every street corner.

We banned alcohol. Alcohol was not hard to get. We now have the technology for someone to make a 20 round clip on a 3-D printer in their bedroom.

One day, maybe people will want to address the actual problems but I doubt it. They will always look to scapegoats.

Banning guns will, in fact, work. That is why you guys are scared to death that it might actually happen. People can only be afraid of the big bad 2nd Amendment for so long. After enough deaths, the fact that the 2nd Amendment is just words... old words... it will sink in that they aren't relevant to 20?? and there will be hell to pay. Count on it. If America survives into the far future it will NOT be as some kind of Mad Max-Road Warrior post apocalypse where anarchy reigns. If America survives it will be because we got rid of the guns. AND tapped the rich people.

You must be referring to Holder sanctioned gun sale to Mexicans per Fast and Furious then seized and distributed around the U.S. Law abiding citizens just being the middle men generating the cash.

Considering banning guns has never worked I don't think there is any real risk of that occuring. However, should guns become illegal, they will be easier to access than drugs. As it stands today, you can print 30 round magazines and receivers to build guns from. It isn't possible to put the genie back into the bottle.

I just read this:

"Angry relatives and residents rampaged through an Egyptian port city Saturday in rioting that killed at least 27 people after a judge sentenced nearly two dozen soccer fans to death for involvement in deadly violence after a game last year."

My Way News - 27 die in Egypt riot after soccer violence verdict

So, I'm thinking soccer should be banned.

I would love that. I would dearly love to see a split.
