    • On January 04, 2013, by Patriot16 - I think that it is disgusting that these politicians exploit tragedies to advance their unconstitutional anti-2nd Amendment agenda. They will try to convince us that we should sacrifice safety for liberty. If we fall for their propaganda we will have neither safety nor liberty. The 2nd Amendment provides a check and balance to the Government protecting free citizens from potential tyranny. This right is not to be confused with hunting and sport. These politicians have an invested interest in disarming the public. Remember that when they say "you don't need that to hunt." They are not to tell us what we need or don't need.They are to serve their country, constituents, and follow the Constitution of the United States!

    • On January 07, 2013, by SherlockHolmes67 - Gun control only serves to benefit the criinals and create government tyrany. Gun control has destroyed many countries while allowing tyrants to keep power. Look how well gun control worked for Hitler. The Democrats are the new Nazi party.

    • On January 06, 2013, by kirksvillemale71 - the people that are voting for this dont realize that in order to buy a gun from a ffl dealer at a gunshow anywhere you still have to go through a background check, this is already a federal law and all dealers have to do this. you just cant walk into a gun show and buy a gun from a dealer and walk out. the people who think you can are stupid, learn the facts dummies. the only thing this will hurt would be the private sales between 2 people.
