The real threat that sovereign law abiding U.S. citizens are facing right now is the liberal media. They are establishing a narrative on behest of the president and his political cohorts to saturate the masses with disinformation that will garner support in subverting the Constitution, namely the 2nd Amendment, a major national security blanket for the United States. The media is telling you that guns are the heart of the problem ....................they are not. Guns have not caused these tragic shootings that America has been experiencing the last 20 years. The NRA is not to blame either. What really is to blame is a radical flawed ideology called liberalism. The media has embrace it and will stop at nothing until the goal of transforming America into a progressivism state of mind. They are the main assault weapon that you, the American citizen faces. I want you to pay attention to just 6 reasons released last month why assault weapons should not be banned. If you are blessed with good ole common sense, you should be able to agree with these logical reasons.

Yeah yeah media this, government that, the world is out to get you. But I'll watch your video anyway.

A few seconds in, and another BS comparison. We can't ban airplanes, obviously. I shouldn't have to explain the difference between a mode of transport and a deadly weapon.

About 40 seconds in, Ice T comes in. Just cause you're paranoid doesn't mean you should get the right to have an assault weapon. Even an assault weapon isn't going to save you from tyranny anyway.

The Constitution can be interpreted pretty loosely. I think it needs changing, but he IS right that it is the law of the land.

If the founders knew what stealth bombers, Abrams tanks, etc were, I have a hard time believing they would still think civilians should be armed equally to the military. More importantly, do any of you conservatives believe a civilian should be able to own a bomber and munitions? A tank? Just curious.

Yes, it could theoretically help in an invasion scenario, but that's unrealistic for at least the next 20 years or so. And if our government can't defeat an invading force, and somehow that invading force's supply lines and everything else that comes with an invasion survive the logistical nightmare that is invading the US, we're screwed anyway.

The reason foreign nations don't consider invading the US is the diplomatic and economic consequences, as well as the military strength of the US. Frankly it wouldn't make much sense for anyone to invade us at this point.

#5 pretty much goes against his own cause. Hell yeah guns are dangerous

He doesn't specify how many people are in the assault weapon industry specifically. Not to mention that just because civilians couldn't own the guns doesn't mean they would stop making guns for law enforcement, military, foreign nations, etc.

Well I think that it is pretty silly to ban civilian versions of military weapons because the realty so called civilian versions of military weapons aren't full automatic nor to they even fire 3 round busts like the M4 or the M16. The civilian version of the M16 is semi-automatic like dozens of non-assault weapon semi-automatics. Ban a weapon because it has a pistol grip, is black and doesn't have a wooden stock doesn't make much sense to me because these are purely cosmetic.

BUT BANNING HI-CAPACITY MAGAZINES MAKES A WORLD OF SENSE!

No it doesn't solve the problem of gun violence but it would help.

No criminals don't pay attention to laws, but so what. The mere possession of a high capacity magazine allows law enforcement to arrest and confiscate what is out there. If prepers want to bury them for the day their Red Dawn fantasies come to fruition, fine, better buried than moving around the streets.

This is no silver bullet (pun intended) but its something.

Because you can't teach fools that 1994 through 2004 did nothing to stop anything. Only drove the prices up and made it hard on the law abiding people.

Kind of hard to do when many of mine are Law Enforcement/Government marked.

What does the term 'Arms' mean to you in the phrase 'Right To Bear 'Arms''?

The state of Utah has always allowed teachers to carry guns in class & has never had an incident. Why can't we all have that?
