As I watch liberal legislators come out of the woodwork and attempt to sneak in more gun control and ammunition legislation in the wake of the Colorado mass shooting, I feel the ground rumbling as our Founders are turning over in their graves.

Why is it that every time there is a shooting spree, liberals want to take guns away from the people who did not shoot anyone?

Why is it that liberals can’t comprehend this fact: CRIMINALS DO NOT ABIDE BY GUN CONTROL LAWS.
The only people affected by these laws are law abiding citizens with no intention to kill people..
Gun control laws leave law abiding citizens defensless or at the very least, out armed by those who might do them harm.

Criminals and the government will always be armed!

2.5 million Americans used guns in self defense last year and in most of those cases, only had to pull the gun to stop an attack, never had to pull the trigger or shoot anyone. 90 million gun owners with over 300 million guns killed no one last year.

In addition, here is another gun fact that gun control advocates can not argue against: In the 20th century,170 million people have been annihilated by their own governments AFTER BEING DISARMED.
Gun control has never been about guns. It has always been about control.

Why do liberals want to punish law abiding gun owners over the actions of a few criminals?

The American people will not stand for this.

This is the line drawn in the sand.

Legislators who cross it are committing political career suicide.

    I think that the every day average liberal does not think that there smoke and mirrors nanny state government will kill them when everyone is disarmed. These people will only wakeup when it’s too late. Liberals that are in office use every excuse they can to make it harder for law-abiding citizens to buy guns. Once everyone is disarmed martial law could be declared from there it would be just a matter of days before the country could be under military law.

    Myself I spent 8 years in the military and became very proficient with hand weapons, landmines and explosives. For a few years I worked with TOW missiles when I was in the army. At any point anyone who is in favor of a ban on hand guns is a fool.

    • yes Larry… and if americans want to see what it is like to be under gun bans check out the many places in the world where gun bans were completely ineffective and actually contributed to a rise in gun related crimes agains innocent people..

    Jan the writing is on the wall. The liberals are probably hiring people to commit these crimes. Why? They want to get face time in the media, and get the guns out of peoples’ hands so the U.N. does not have to fight people armed with guns.

  • I generally try conduct myself with as much class as i can when debating with the libs on the issues that are important to us as conservatives. But you are absolutely right about the line in the sand. On the issues of gun control and disarmament, I draw my own line and i’ll gladly tell Obama, Holder, Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein, Bloomberg, Schumer or any other sleazy s.o.b. that wants to push the issue just two things. Go f**k yourself, and come and get them.

    Gun Control Laws ONLY have any effect whatsoever on People with an inclination to Obey Laws. It’s REALLY just that simple.

  • Billy Perdue

    Guns are outlawed in the Phillipines also; but you can still buy them if you have the money. Gun control does not work; the outlaws will always find a way to get guns.

    Libs cannot comprehend much of anything…They still think a gun has a mind of it’s own.LOL, one other day said guns turn people into serial killers…I asked em since when does a gun have a mind…They still believe Obama is the Man..Those that live off of handouts think the money is Obama’s LOL…Never heard anyone mention this but way i see it he is buying those votes with Our Money…

    • Don Edward

      Larry, you hit the nail on the head. These handouts and immigration amnesty is exactly the way Obama plans on keeping his job. It’s getting to the point where 20% of us are supporting the other 80%.

    Unfortunately, most Americans don’t care. In NYC where I lived the first 40 years of my life, everyone believes the liberal media that guns kill people and assault rifles are the gun of choice among criminals. Even here, once I moved to Texas six years ago, I have found countless people that don’t care. They believe Obama doesn’t want to take our guns just because he said so and when I tried to inform people that I know like guns and do go shooting about Fast and Furious, they think either I’m crazy and I’m making it up or they don’t care thinking it will never happen.

    One of the things I want to do when I moved here to the great state of Texas was to buy a pistol and go to the range. Well, just under five years after I bought my first gun I now own five pistols and I’m an NRA Certified Pistol Instructor. I read the NRA’s America’s First Freedom every month and I try to educate people I talk to about what the government is trying to do but rarely do I come across anyone that cares or takes any of it seriously…. because the liberal media has such a hold on people thinking that guns are at fault. “You can’t stop crazy people from doing crazy things. That’s just crazy.” –Penn Jillette

    I know first hand about only needing to pull a gun without the need to fire. I had five guys rush my car from the front and sides in an attempt to carjack me. Two appeared to be reaching for their own guns. When I picked up my Berretta 92fs up off the passenger seat and stuck it in the face of the guy attempting to open my driver door, you should have seen them turn and run! Who knows what would have happened to me had I not been armed?

    I found something that I really explains how a whole lot of us feel about gun control. This is an excerpt from a blog post I saw from “LawDog” I hope you don’t mind … It is a bit long

    say I have this cake. It is a very nice cake, with “GUN RIGHTS”
    written across the top in lovely floral icing. Along you come and say,
    “Give me that cake.”

    I say, “No, it’s my cake.”

    You say,
    “Let’s compromise. Give me half.” I respond by asking what I get out of
    this compromise, and you reply that I get to keep half of my cake.

    Okay, we compromise. Let us call this compromise The National Firearms Act of 1934.

    There I am with my half of the cake, and you walk back up and say, “Give me that cake.”

    I say, “No, it’s my cake.”

    say, “Let’s compromise.” What do I get out of this compromise? Why, I
    get to keep half of what’s left of the cake I already own.

    we have your compromise — let us call this one the Gun Control Act of
    1968 — and I’m left holding what is now just a quarter of my cake.

    And I’m sitting in the corner with my quarter piece of cake, and here you come again. You want my cake. Again.

    time you take several bites — we’ll call this compromise the Clinton
    Executive Orders — and I’m left with about a tenth of what has always
    been MY DAMN CAKE and you’ve got nine-tenths of it.

    Then we
    compromised with the Lautenberg Act (nibble, nibble), the HUD/Smith and
    Wesson agreement (nibble, nibble), the Brady Law (NOM NOM NOM), the
    School Safety and Law Enforcement Improvement Act (sweet tap-dancing
    Freyja, my finger!)

    I’m left holding crumbs of what was once a
    large and satisfying cake, and you’re standing there with most of MY
    CAKE, making anime eyes and whining about being “reasonable”, and
    wondering “why we won’t compromise”.

    I’m done with being
    reasonable, and I’m done with compromise. Nothing about gun control in
    this country has ever been “reasonable” nor a genuine “compromise”.

    No one is trying to take your guns. Wake up and be informed of the REAL issues at stake in this election. Not ONE candidate has come out for stricter gun laws or violating the rights of gun owners. This is a MYTH, this is PROPAGANDA to keep you from focusing on the REAL issues we face as Americans. You are NOT at risk of loosing your right to have and bear arms!
