The time is long over do to rid this country of tyranical politicians and return this country to the way our fore fathers had laid out the course of it’s citizens should follow, AND THAT IS WITH FREEDOM, NOTHING LESS.

Let’s start punishining those who break the law and quit harrassing the citizens who do not. If this passes, many new criminals will be created. I wish we could pass a law that all law makers would be required to use common sense.

If you want to go through all the steps proposed in this ridiculous proposal, you may as well get your concealed carry license. In Michigan the process is almost exactly the same but then you can carry and defend yourself outside the home.

Besides, the insident with the shooting in Chicago is not an indicator of further gun control, Chicago already has some of the most intense gun control laws in the country. Bottom line: gun control does nothing to take guns out of the hands of the criminals or those with criminal intent

Our forefathers wrote The Bill of Rights and the US Constitution for a reason. The United States of America is a country of democracy, not socialism. There is a reason why America has a judicial system as it is to protect the innocent. The problem I see is over the past 10 to 20 years has been in the judicial system it is slowly degrading. Our prisons are overloaded with criminals on death row because they are permitted to unlimited appeals. In Babylon days the saying, “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth” originated. That phrase is also spoken today in The Book of Matthew 5:38. “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.” (King James Version) The definition of that phrase is, “The notion that for every wrong done there should be a compensating measure of justice.” Our country can no longer afford to permit criminals freely walk on the streets. All state and federal justices must protect America including the law abiding citizens who reside in it.

what I see in this bill is one more step to ban all guns. looks like they are wanting to find out what doors to kick down first.

skzofrania 01/29/2009 1:08pm

Thats how it started in Cuba. First they wanted to register the handguns, then license the owners..

This would get a LOT of cops killed.

They must be truly fools that think all the new firearms and mass ammunition being bought into private citizens hands will be turned in if they create this atrocity. I dare say this is the best anti-law and order campaign they could launch short of simply abolishing all the law enforcement agencies effective immediately. Grow up and leave citizens and our rights alone.

If they pass this atrocity they’ll have to roll the tanks into Texas.

Bobby Rush, a convicted felon (i.e. can not own a gun himself):

Democratic Member of Congress
Member of the radical Progressive Caucus
In 1968, went AWOL from the U.S. Army
Co-founder of the Illinois branch of the Black Panther Party
In 1969, served six months in jail for an illegal weapons conviction
Advocates reparations for African Americans

Bobby Rush is a Democratic Member of Congress who represents the First District of Illinois, which includes roughly half of Chicago’s South Side and the national headquarters of the Nation of Islam led by the racial demagogue Louis Farrakhan. Nearly two-thirds of the residents of this district are African-American.

All of the campaign adds in Colorado said that Obama supported the second amendment and would not take our guns.

Bobby Rush is a kool-aid drinking, quasi-socialist, obamite… just like the rest of the Chicago political machine.

I doubt that Rep. Rush can read, as he claims to be a product of the poor helpless inter-city, etc. etc. etc.

MichelleHouk 01/28/2009 12:12pm

Do “they” even know what the second amendment is? JEEZ!

tigermanrick 01/28/2009 11:22am

Really, what does this bill accomplish? NOTHING!! The criminals will still get the guns. The kids that want the guns will still get them, and at that point will send their mother or father to jail because the child has seen where the hide the keys for the gun cabinet, or found out the code for the gun safe. So what does this accomplish? A lot more headache for the law abiding citizen. And it begins! No doubt this is only the beginning.

Anonymous 01/27/2009 1:27pm

What is really sad is that so many otherwise good and decent law enforcement personnel will die trying to enforce such a stupid law should it ever come to pass. I will engage with all the force and tactics available to me if necessary.

hulsered 01/27/2009 10:46am

This is war. Do not be deceived or let it be put down under not ‘politically correct’. This is an all-out assault on what our founding fathers, and so many others, have put their lives’ on the line to defend. The first and foremost way for a government to control the people has always been to disarm them.

Push. Push hard.

the fools in congress think that by banning legal gun ownership that they will have a safer sociaty and world.

they need to view the video in the link below and get a grip on reality. if you ban the legal guns then the streets will be flooded with cheap, foreign guns.

A will regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Article 2 of the Bill of Rights was considered by our founding fathers to be the second most important amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Some people think that it is the most important because it is our protection from corrupt government officials gaining control and trying to remove our God given liberties by force. There is no longer an even playing field, between the civilian population and the government controlled military, because of the regulations that we have allowed our government to place on all weapons. WE MUST NOT ALLOW them to take anymore away; we must have them remove most of the regulations that they have already imposed on the law abiding citizens. We must not let the United Nations get their way. The U.N. wants to totally disarm all law abiding American citizens.

Guns are one of the few things people are still buying nowadays. With the way the economy is looking, I think it would be pretty irresponsible to support any legislation that is going to hurt the gun industry.

Anonymous 01/26/2009 4:50pm

I’ve seen first hand what happens when only criminals have weapons. I lived in the DC suburbs and saw drug dealers shooting it out in the 12th street tunnel during the 80’s in brode day light.

this is just the first step in controlling and then outlawing gun ownership in this country. if the nuts in DC try to out law my guns then I will gladly join the ranks of other outlaws such as Thomas jefferson, John Adams, and George Washington whom i consider patriots in rising up to protect and defend the Consitution of the USA and the “Original” bill of rights!

if they want my guns then i’ll gladly give it to them 1 bullet at a time. my childern will not grow up in a slave state.

Bills like H. R. 45 will continually be written and proposed, as long as we the people continue to vote them into office or back into office.

Our founding fathers were very specific with the wording of The Constitution Of The United States and its Amendments. They were written clearly and precisely, so no interpetations is required.

The people who right and propose these laws can only make me suspect as to their true motive. And those motives cannot be favorable the the majority of US Citizens.

Maybe it is time to rename the democratic party to the Socialist Party of the USA. It seams more appropriate to the direction this country is fast moving.

It took 185 years (revolution to 1960) to make this country truely number on in the worlds eyss. And it has taken only 49 years to bring us down.

Lara1967 01/25/2009 8:12pm
The person who is proposing this needs to read the Amendment 2 – Right to Bear Arms. Ratified 12/15/1791.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The last part does say Infringed meaning :


infringe vb [Latin infringere] 1: violate, transgress 2: encroach, trespass

In the context of the Constitution, phrases like “shall not be infringed,” “shall make no law,” and “shall not be violated” sound pretty unbendable.

Anonymous 01/25/2009 6:53pm

This is War people. The right to keep and bear arms is our Constitutional right and the right of every free man born into this world.

Anyone who would try to restrict or deny that right declares war, so should be dealt with as such.

Maybe it is time for a revolution to take back what our forefathers fought and died for. Perhaps now is the time to fight the tyranny that is rising, and stamp it out like the hell hound that it is.

Maybe now is the time to evict the illegal Federal Reserve fractional banking system from this country and try them for crimes against the people of the United States.

shybusch 01/25/2009 4:02pm

We cannot allow the Democratic Congress to take away our rights any further. Please contact your senators ASAP on this and let them know you do not agree with this bill. In fact, write senators in states other than your own, make up an address in their state, and tell them to vote no on this bill. Viva la revolution!

Why is our government enacting gun legislation that penalizes innocent law abiding citizens, in effort to reduce high crime rates? How many criminals register their guns? (NIL)
Why don’t we look at the real causes for people killing one another? The only chance
of solving this problem is to concentrate on the ROOT CAUSE. It is obvious that most of these reasons are: Lack of parental control, Lack of education, Lack of role models, No job, Negative environment, Peer pressure, Lack of self esteem…
Please WAKE UP and understand that no problem can be solved without first, eliminating the ROOT CAUSE.

Now they want to say who can even own a hunting rifle. “Cold dead hands” is what I say to that.
