It is interesting to note that most people who want us to be unarmed in America, are either armed, have armed bodyguards, or work and live in environments surrounded by armed security.

Remember Senator, R.C. Soles, a democrat from North Carolina? Soles had a less than stellar record on gun rights issues yet, he actually SHOT an intruder in his home.

I would be willing to bet that many of the democrats who align with anti-gun advocates, actually have guns in their homes for their own protection.
It leaves the impression that they believe their lives and personal safety are more valuable than yours or mine.

Anti-gun Legislators believe they can run our lives, raise our kids, and protect our families better than we can. It is much easier to “control” the lives of a population when that population is not armed. History has proven this to be true.
In the 20th century, 170 million people have been annihilated by their own governments AFTER BEING DISARMED.

Even if you do not care to own a firearm, as an American, you should want law abiding citizens to retain the right to bear arms.
It is about the preservation of liberty and the prevention of tyranny. It is about the right to not be out gunned by an enemy or criminal who will always have access to the most deadly firearms.

When anti-gun liberals ask me to explain or justify why I need my bushmaster AR 15 with 30 or 100 round magazines, my answer is simple. Equal opportunity for preservation of life and liberty.
Criminals and a tyrannical government will always have access to the latest fully automatic lethal firearms. Expecting me to be further restricted on what I can legally own would be like asking me to take a knife to a gun fight.

America already has almost 30 thousand gun control laws on the books. This is ridiculous. The 2nd Amendment should be sufficient. Law abiding citizens are already subjected to a series of restrictions including background checks, registrations, testing for the right to conceal carry, transport laws, and now even exposure of private gun ownership records in some newspapers. Criminals face none of these restrictions and invasions of privacy.

Anti-gun laws ONLY AFFECT LAW ABIDING CITIZENS who do not need to be restricted. Criminals and psychologically impaired individuals can and will acquire firearms if they want them. They are not affected by more restrictions our legislators place on the books. They do not abide by the laws.
The assumption by anti-gun advocates that more laws and more restrictions on law abiding citizens will curtail gun crimes is simply a flawed perception.

Actually, more laws and restrictions on gun ownership will just force otherwise law abiding citizens to become criminals in order to hold on to the guns rights our Founders provided for us with the 2nd Amendment.

    History is replete with examples of tyrannical governments who disarmed their
    citizens and then either murdered or starved their opposition or the “unwanted”
    among them. From King Herod to today, elimination of opposition is a hallmark
    of tyranny. The Obama administration, and all of their minions and useful idiots,
    want to rule over a populace that cannot defend itself. Rulers do not like opposition.
    This is the reason for the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, to prevent tyranny over
    a defenseless public.

    Since Obama took the White House, the Federal government of the United States
    has been very actively involved in arming enemies of freedom and attempting to
    disarm the patriots of this nation. The NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act)
    allows for the arrest and detainment of American citizens without warrants or due
    process. Congress enacted a law that keeps protesters out of sight and far away
    from…..elected officials, a law that insulates the ruling class from the ruled. All of
    he Federal agencies have armed up and requisitioned millions of rounds of hollow
    point bullets. Here And Here:

    • Johnny Annon ‘omouse

      This is why OBAMA and all the rest MUST BE REMOVED FROM GOVERNMENT! Our country was founded escaping tryranny. We must AT ALL COSTS AND NO QUARTER defend this country againsts all threats foreign and domestic and OBAMA is a THREAT to this Nation.

      • Orrie

        Even before Obama stepped into our White House he has been a threat to our people in America. Even the very people who support him are in danger of losing all their rights to freedom.

    • Orrie

      This is going to get real nasty! New York City Police are already making plans to confiscate firearms from law abiding citizens. If and when they carry out this assault on the Second Amendment there will be no stopping other large city police departments to enact similar disarming plans. We as gun owners are now going to have to make a decision of either handing over our guns or resisting to do so. The government has now declared war on the Constitution and everyone who has taken the oath to defend it.

        Those in power are communists.

  • Jan –
    When I am asked to justify why it is I own an AR, or what I need it for, or what I use it for, my answer is even SIMPLER: It is NONE of your BUSINESS. I dont have to justify why I purchase ANY of my private property to ANYONE.I am sick of people deciding that I need a reason to own something. I don’ go to their homes and ask them to justify their posessions to me, do I? Nope.

    Don’t explain to anyone your reason for owning anything. It is none of their business either way.

    The law didn’t stop a criminal who was already forbidden to possess, own or use a firearm from committing murder and mayhem in a small New York town.

    To all those in leadership position in the US lead by example. have all
    your security agents and the secret service turn in all their weapons
    that they use to provide security for you. if you want gun bans and are
    supposed to be leaders in this great
    country then lead by example. but I already know your answer no you want
    do that but expect law abiding citizen to do just that and turn in
    their guns and leave themselves open to criminal to do as they wish
    since they will have no defense against them.
