I read somewhere that Adam Llanza refused to take his too.

Yep, the crazy thing is that if they had just banned Muslims instead of guns they could have saved more people.

That's because places like Oz have no Constitution that recognizes the natural rights of man. There simply is no right to life, and without that there is no right to self-defense or defense of others. It just isn't part of their system. Unfortunate. They are truly still a prison nation.

True Americans would see we have an issue and work together to attempt to fix the issue. Not just kick and scream behind a 250 year old document.

I don't think I've seen a single solution from a pro-gun poster. Nada. Zip.
Natural rights cannot supersede each other. Simply put, they are sacrosanct...and if you violate anyone's natural rights...then you forfeit all your own. You can expect no quarter, and none should be given.

California. You obviously do not live here. The state has unconstitutionally infringed on the right to keep and bear arms.

Why do liberals always find a sexual angle to gun ownership? You guys have way more of a fetish than anyone I have ever met, gun owners included. I have my own theory about people who are fixated with penises. Just go do it. Just go full gay. We won't judge.

Are you telling me you can't have any guns in CA? I don't think so.

Until they started closing the mental hospitals, they could force dangerous people to take their meds. No longer legal to do that.

I know a cop who worked for 25 years in S,Central LA, gang country. He made some enemies. He has to do a background check to buy ammo to protect himself.

But we never know when a responsible gun owner will turn bad, a la the Las Vegas shooter.

A gun is a substitute for a big sex organ. That’s why guys like AR-15’s and other automatic weapons. “See me. I’ve got a big powerful gun.”

ANYBODY who insists that the “tool”, whether an AR-15 or a hammer, causes crime doesn’t have even a partially developed brain!
