As most LEO will tell you, the problem is not armed law-abiding citizens, it’s violent, thug criminals. should this abomination pass and be signed into law, it will hurt and hinder the law abiding only. I do not support this or any other restriction of my God-given rights.

Encourage your Congressman and Senators to promote laws which exist now to put away violent criminals and keep them away. Also encourage local/ state government to stop the practice of plea-bargaining away gun charges (harder to prove in court, so easier to plea-bargain away) which allow criminals to face only other charges singly without gun related charges in court.

A citizen’s first best defense, is to remain armed against criminals.

Your guns will be taken away whether you want them to or not. The government can not have total control if it’s citizens are armed.

Hopefully. But we can’t count on the S.C. They are the parachute. That’s not a plan to make. We fight it before it gets there… all the way, every step. And we make sure that moron that submitted the bill gets voted out of office the first chance we get. To do that we need a strong candidate to put in his place, to run against him.

The 2nd Amendment clearly states that all US Citizens are guaranteed the right to own weapons – including guns – for the purpose of mobilization and overthrow of the government, should that government become tyrannical. It is only a tyrannical government that wishes to remove the rights of gun ownership from its citizens – as it is only a tyrannical government that has anything to fear from an armed populace.

This is why I will never vote for a Democrat period. Too bad too many folks voted for their wallets on false promises and a false hope of change of the Democratic party. Whith the economy,jobs(unemployment),banking and housing issues the way they are its a crying shame that these people waste our tax payer money, waste time and resourses on this non-effecting criminals one bit only us legal gun owners piece of trash they call a bill. I hope we can bump these worthless people out of office like in the 90’s ASAP!!

Please, why don’t we get back to personal accountability!!! Stop blaming everything on everyone else. We are our own worst enemy. We let this happen. The power that be and the media see an opportunity every time someone uses a firearm unlawfully and cries we must save the children and no one wants to see children hurt or killed right? So lets ban guns. what a joke that is.

Education is certainly the key but it is every individuals responsibility to get the answers to their questions. The problem is that most people don’t care enough to bother. They have what I call the FAT AND HAPPY SYNDROME.

It’s a common fact that the police don’t or can’t protect us, we have a legal right to self-protection. HR 45 is just the first step that allows the “government” to re-possess all firearms in the US. Can you say Australia?

Anonymous 02/05/2009 2:24pm

H.R.45 is the type of legislation which would immediately make millions of innocent Americans criminals while doing nothing at all to hinder true violent criminals. It is an affront to our second amendment constitutional rights and is obviously written by a person who never bothered to read the constitution or actually cares about a citizens rights. Keep this idiot in Illinois.

taking guns for a reason… taking god out of everything …. we have become that big hated symbol… a bunch of moronic sinners… and other countries see that … notice that is years past .. all had guns and control of kids and believed in god… pretty good country now look take guns, no control over kids who are in gangs shooting people. and nobody cares anymore… wake up

Have you gone to the…
H.R.2159 “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009”
http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h2159/show

Have a look at that and trust me this makes HR45 seem tame.

hurricane 02/13/2009 3:51pm

What happens when one of these liberals get their homes broken into and are standing in front of a criminal what will they use to protect their family from harm? AN ANTI GUN BILL. I thnk not. It does not even make a good bullet proof vest!!!!

God Bless All

P. S. Some of the greatest men in our history were called traitors in the begining of our countries days.

daddycal 02/11/2009 4:38am

Laws like this are absolutely ridiculous. They only affect LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS. People who obtain guns illegally, will ALWAYS get them that way. More government BS.

docsean 02/03/2009 1:47pm

What a crock! Law abiding citizens already obey the laws. Many of the issues covered in this bill are already covered in one form or another in other federal or state laws.
NOTHING in this bill, as it is explained here, will have the least impact on a criminal’s willingness to procure or use a weapon. It will certainly NOT prevent a person who is willing to engage in criminal behavior from finding or using one.
We don’t need more laws, we need definitive and uniform enforcement of the laws already on the books.

Anonymous 02/03/2009 7:40am

The Canadaians and other countries have done this process and all it has done is cost a large amount of money with no return.
What is gained by knowing who has a firearms. The poeple who do register are not the ones using firearms for the wrong use. SHould we registar all knifes they kill people as well. Don’t focus on the tool but who is using the tool. This law was developed by a tool.

goergekiefer,

No offense but actually you don’t get it. The Second Amendment is not “a right that has been given to us.” The right of self preservation contained within the Second Amendment is an inalienable God given right that no man can “give” or take from us, especially politicians!

I find it interesting you invoke the term “radical rednecks” when in fact it’s the dirtbag gang bangers that provide an ignorant population the perception they hold of all law abiding gun owners in this country.

We are up against decades of well orchestrated anti gun ownership propaganda in this country and there is very little we can do to change the opinions of many people that could care less about our Constitution as long as the government gives them free handouts. A rough road to hoe is before us like never before in the history of this country.

The communist puppet & illegal alien usurper Obama (from Chicago) is but the enemy’s second deployment behind the Bush crime family.

Their primary intentions are to rob all Americans black and white, create a civil war and to completely dismantle what’s left of the United States.

You are now living in a war zone; the cur in the White House and his comrades have full command over the nation’s control hierarchy.

You and your family are in imminent danger. Prepare to defend yourself to the death.

Stand by to stand by …… the same thing happened in Illinois and now it is going to happen nation wide. Hold on tight to your 2nd ammendment rights. They are not gonna be around too long unless everyone stands up and says something. Has anyone else notice how this has not been in the news at all? Wonder why they are trying to sneak this thing through. How about some media coverage and a little public outrage/discussion.

This is THE scariest thing I have heard, ever. This is crazy talk. Are our leaders begging for an uprising? A revolution?

Anonymous 02/02/2009 8:06am

The most horrible thing about this is if there can a day something like this passed, the amount of lost life would be tragic.
Law abiding, America loving citizens would instantly become criminals in the eyes of the legal system they faithfully support and abide by.
A stroke of a pen would spill the blood of the very backbone of America, both citizens and the ones who dutifully enforce its laws.

How do you make law abiding citizens criminals? You pass a bill like H.R.45. Speak up and help protect your rights, if the second ammendment falls what’s next? The original 10 ammendments are the foundation of our country and they need to be protected.

A few words from Thomas Jefferson:

“It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.”
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
“Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep forever.”
“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
“Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.”
“Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have … The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases.”
“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
“The tree of Liberty needs to be watered from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
“There is nothing more unequal, than the equal treatment of unequal people.” – Thomas Jefferson

Nice pipe dream, but that is all it is. Texas is the only state that included in its state constitution the right to succeed from the union. So, until Alaska gets an army big enough to defend itself from the armies of the American Empire, you are living in a dream world.

Sorry.

I agree this bill needs to squelched before it goes any farther. I was brought up a law abiding citizen and my country is bound and determined to make me a fellon I refuse to register my guns and or my ammunition so if it’s a fight they want I will be a front runner and will die defending our 2nd amendment rights!

Want some more…

Article V – The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

NO RELIGIOUS TEST SHALL EVER BE REQUIRED AS A QUALIFICATION – hmm, what does that mean to you?

Article 2 Section 1 – Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Notice there is no “so help me God” this has been added by some presidents since and is not required in any way.
