    FYI: I’ve had a “firearms license” since March 4, 1789. If the Demosocialists have any questions, just let them stand up and count the little red lazer dots on their foreheads…

    This abomination of a house resolution ALREADY EXISTS YOU GOVERN MENTALS.

    Try enforcing the gun laws already on the books. This resolution is a waste of taxpayer time, money and resources.

    Here is an idea: for every nonsense resolution the sponsor and co-sponsors
    should be made to pay back the government for all paper used up in the communication of the ridiculous resolution, should be made to pay back for all phone time, computer time, and gas used for creating and placing this resolution into the docket.

    ps: FIRE BOBBY RUSH FROM OFFICE.

    I would suggest that only those citizens who are honest will register their guns and all others will not. Just as if guns are outlawed then only outlaws will have guns. This is the most absurd piece of legilation I have seen in a long time. Our Senators and Representatives should be ashamed that they are even considering such a law.

    According to the bill, I have paid taxes on my gun purchases when I bought them, I registered the guns on paperwork I filled out when I bought them, I went through a government required and NRA backed instant background check before I was able to purchase them and I passed a common sense test at the police station before they issued me a handgun purchase permit. Are these type bills the most efficient use of our elected officials time and energy? How about a bill authorizing the distribution of funds for law enforcement to start up permanent “criminal roundup posses”? These officials have run the country into the ground financialy so they need to find a way to generate more revenue by starting feel good legislation that does nothing to thwart crime. How about exremely taxing EVERYTHING that can be used against someone as a weapon? Golf clubs, baseball bats, cars, hockey sticks? Will it ever end?

    I am deeply concerned for the welfare of all, and what is proven by by the insideous NWO proponents that support this bill. I am a disabled OIF veteran who came back with mtbi, ptsd, and other injuries. what I haven’t seen anyone comment on is the fact that if this illegal law is passed, that anyone can be stripped of their rights to possess a firearm based solely a psychiatric diagnosis. The point I’m making here is this: You may be of sound body & mind, but all it takes is one biased little piss ant with a silly degree to ruin you, which already happens daily- just ask any veteran. I may have psychiatric illness, but that was born in the service of the country with which I vowed to defend, and still do, and will not forfeit my rights under any circumstance except for my dying breath, from my cold, dead fingers………, and even then they better watch out!!.

    What I neglected to say is that people who are truly irresponsible and violent in nature, due to permanent mental illness, obviously should be restricted from firearm ownership, but I stress those that have a violent history, not soldiers or police officers who on a daily basis are exposed to situations created by the absolute worst members of the human race, and are carrying emotional scars as a result of it. I also want to stress that in places where gun owners enjoy their freedoms the crime rates are much lower in burglaries and other assaultive crimes, due to the fact that criminals have to gamble as to whether or not they have the winning hand, because they want to live so they can enjoy the trappings of their worthless existence.

    Another important point to ponder is this, all veterans are being watched by the dept. of homeland security as potential “Lone Wolf Terrorists”, What a kick in the teeth to this country’s finest citizens!!. We all know the warped intentions of the radical leftist regime that is tightening its grip around us, and before they can proceed with their utter destruction of the finest country in the world. But two things stands in their way…..a little document called the constitution, and the right of this nations citizens to defend themselves against all enemies, BOTH FORIEGN AND DOMESTIC!!. They will never accomplish their mission as long as we have our firearms, and free speech!!.

    The interesting thing about this intended subversion of the constitution is that the politicians that are involved in this are in fact committing treason, because they have sworn to uphold the constitution!!. The fact that it has gotten this far is astounding. That they can even act publicly, though as hidden with their agendas as possible, strikes a blow to the very core of this patriot.

    It is OUR RIGHT to keep and bear those arms for our own protection and to keep everyone else honest. If our arms are taken from us, it would be easy for an army to overwhelm the population. If we have our arms, it would be far more difficult.

    Are we going down the road to such an occurrence? Who knows? But the possibility always existed for an entire population to be swayed by a charismatic leader with false information and evil intentions. With the right authority (Genocidal psychiatrists) and false information (Jews are mental defectives), Germany murdered millions of its population and surrounding countries populations. But what preceded that event? THE GERMANS DISARMED THEIR POPULATION. The Jews and those with a conscience could not defend themselves. I guarantee you that history would read differently if the German population was armed. So of course, the first step in abusing the rights of a society is LEGALLY disarming the population, and here it is on our doorstep.

    I agree with the above comments! The only people this law is going to HURT and HINDER are the law abiding citizens who lawfully own guns. The criminals will only gain a stronger hold on the Americans that can no longer protect themselves… and dialing 911 promotes investigation after a crime has already been committed!

    Not only does this bill impeded on our second amendment rights, it also severely oversteps the fourth amendment. Hopefully we will see our Democratic House make a sound decision when voting on this bill.

    “They” have already taken our First Amendment away, so I guess it’s time for “them” to take away the Second—-or do we as Americans stop this fascism now?

    What did Stalin, Mao, and Hitler have in common? They had all the guns and their people had nothing; let’s not join them.

    You forgot Castro. Armas para que!…..Once Castro took control he made this statement (Arms, for what?), he then took from the people that which was afforded him to overthrow the government. 50 years later he’s still in control.

    This bill would be the very thing this nation needs, if they want a second revolution. Just try and take more of our rights away and see what will happen. Not only will we not vote for any Political fat cat who votes for this bill but we will actively campaign against them. And If need be lead the second revolution against these Communist legislators.

    The time to vote against these people now in power was before they got in the position they’re in. Voters put them there and voters can remove them. The problem is, will the people survive until the next election? Our rights are being taken away gradually, just as the jobs of the US people are being given to illegals, millions who are clamoring to get to the land of milk and honey where they are encouraged to live off the sweat of our taxpayers. They no longer have to swim rivers or cross bridges. They now cross over on a red carpet laid down by our government. By the time the Democrats are out of control, our nation as we know it will not exist. I’m really grateful that I lived through the good years, when we had a nation to be proud of, and I don’t have many years to watch it go down the tubes. However, I do pity my grandchildren, who will have to struggle to exist in this New World of the future.

    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.

    Sometimes I wish Rambo and the Terminator were real men. Our government has gotten completely out of control. I do believe that a revolution is coming if they don’t stop trying to turn this country into a version of Hitlers’ Germany. My fear is that there is too much apathy here among the people who have immigrated recently to this country and don’t know what it is like to be free from government control. These, plus the bleeding hearts that think we should have everything controlled for us are driving this monster forward. The rest of us are going to be in for the fight of our lives if they keep attempting to take away our constitutional rights.

    Strong candidates are hard to find. Looking for one in the last election was comparable to Lot, in the Old Testament, looking for one honest man. It’s sad that we didn’t have a stronger candidate to run against such a charlatan as Obama.

  • starfrosts 01/22/2009 8:01am

    Yeah, like the Attorney General wants all these calls of lost guns. Really, this is not good legislation. There is a reason why people own guns. For us, it’s to have meat for the winter, and to stave off people who would brake into our home. Whoever wants to take away our privledges of gun ownership by placing all these ‘restrictions’ on us is taking away what power we have to ‘throw off such governments’ that would see us in poverty while the people in power are living a lavish life. This is exsactly what our forfathers DIDN’T want for us. Yes, there are people who misuse guns. No, the average law-abiding citizen should not get crimanalized for it.

    I agree with you an almost every count. Your statement “Whoever wants to take away our privledges…” Owning a weapon is not a privilege, it is a right. No one has the authority to take away a right unless the right has been misused or abused another. As you state very well in your post, “the average law abiding citizen should not get criminalized for it.” Excellent post!

    At the rate that these so-called “peoples’ representives” are quietly and not so quietly attacking and eroding our basics rights, I fear that it won’t be many more years until we salute the “president” with “Sig Heil”. Not a good thing at all. Unfortunately, there are too many that are fast to jump on the “me too” wagon, and this will def. show that.

  • paycheck 01/23/2009 9:46am

    Why not use the death penalty for a deterrent to those who think they can murder? What a novel idea. If people realized there was consequences for their actions, we would have a lot less murder going on. And for those who do, we remove them from society permanently, problem solved.
    The armed community is a safe community. We don’t live in a fairy tale world.
