The State has ALWAYS been the enemy of the people.

Ask the Native Americans, the slaves, blacks in the South, and all the millions of people the US government has slaughtered around the world for the last 150 years.

I'm sure you've been told this many times. Any semi auto firearm has the ability to shoot 40 rounds in 30 seconds, it is dependent on you , the end user, and your finger.

I have to wonder how some people can get through life, seeing a conspiracy and a threat behind every tree ! Funny how most of us never worry about dumb stuff like this, and we somehow survive.

Some liberals would rather we all be dead. One poster on here a few months back actually said that he would rather he and his family die than to use a gun to defend them. Wish I could find the post.
