Gun Control???

Self Defense is a Basic Human Right!

The police might arrive in time to call for the clean-up crew.
A quicker response is required to ensure the corpse isn't you!

Self Defense is a Basic Human Right!

Guns don't kill people, people do!

"We have created a shopping list for madmen! If guns are the problem, why don't we see things occurring at skeet and trap shoots, at rifle and pistol ranges, at gun shows, at NRA conventions? We only see it where guns aren't allowed. The sign of a gun with a slash through it is like a neon sign for gunmen, 'We're unarmed. Come kill us.' "

-Suzanna Hupp, Texas State Representative

Self Defense is a Basic Human Right!

House Bill 1022 would ban SAFETY FEATURES!

No gun is safe, they want to ban them all!

No gun is safe, they want to ban them all!

That rifle hanging on the wall of the working-class flat or labourer's cottage is the symbol of democracy.
It is our job to see that it stays there.

-George Orwell

Typical Left Wing Attitude!

No gun is safe from their ban... get them while you can!

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.

-J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

Marksmanship is a safe and rewarding sport which MILLIONS participate in!

Jan. 31, 2006 - A bill that would have given college students and employees the right to carry handguns on campus died with nary a shot being fired in the Virginia General Assembly.

Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker was happy to hear the bill was defeated. "I'm sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly's actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus."

Last spring a Virginia Tech student was disciplined for bringing a handgun to class, despite having a concealed handgun permit. Some gun owners questioned the university's authority, while the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police came out against the presence of guns on campus.

Check out the Roanoke Times article.

It's sad how quickly a terrible tragedy such as this is exploited by the anti-gun politicians. They sight mass killings as the reason for the need of a new gun ban! They don't mention that guns were already banned on the Virginia Tech campus and that shooting people is already 'banned' by Federal law. It seems that criminals don't pay attention to the laws... imagine that!

So, if criminals do not acknowledge or obey the law, what could possibly come of a new gun ban?... Why, the disarming of your average law-abiding citizen, of course! The conversion from armed citizen to helpless victim - totally dependent on the government for protection of life, liberty and property.

Yeah, I'm going to depend on the local cops to be my family's personal bodyguards. Maybe they'll arrive 15 minutes later to fill out the paperwork and call the coroner, while some thug is miles away with my TV.

I don't think so... we don't need more government control!

It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees!

event; it WAS interesting that for several days columnists remained sane and level headed. I read 2 editorials on the weekend that both said about the same thing, that a knee-jerk gun ban wasn't the issue. That he could have easily built a bomb to kill people. That the real issue was that there needs to be tighter checks, that a person who'd been committed recently to a psych hospital should not have access to legally buy a gun. Note my view, this guy wasn't bummed out and signed himself in, an ER doc commited him against his will and a coroner (another MD) concurred that he needed to be locked up. I worked in psych hospitals for a decade and the difference is significant- you sign yourself in, you know shits bad and you want help. Someone else locks you up, it's because you're acting 'whacked' and you usu don't agree that anythings wrong.
the really interesting thing was that the views were from Cal Thomas (conservative) and Froma Harrop (liberal). Both said gun bans wouldn't do anything, just fucking look at their backgrounds please? Shit, the guy had been reported to the authorities by his instructors. Why wasn't THAT a flag?

I'm with you 100% scoob.

It's a good thing to see SOME Dems out there not jumping on the anti-gun bandwagon. Of course, there are quite a few out there who think we should ban them all.

You're correct, any person committed to an institution by a judge should definitely not be allowed to make a gun purchase.

I have no problem with tougher background checks to buy weapons, I have nothing to hide! There are some people out there who are not responsible enough to own a gun, and the background checks should stop them.

Yeah, I like my guns and the freedom to own and shoot them responsibly. It's a relaxing sport, an interesting collector's deal. In themselves the precision and detail are always neat, just like an old clock- an appreciation of workmanship. It's also a part of human nature to on weapons; look at how many cultures have displayed spears, swords etc symbolically. A sign of honor, and usually responsibility. Of manhood.
Clearly they can be misused, and I no more want a nut or criminal to have one than anyone else. I also don't want some idiot taking mine away because of another's actions.
