Senator Dianne Feinstein,I will not register my weapons should this
bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know
what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be
taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me
having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not
your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some
woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I
may not have one.I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you
free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your
peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America. I am the man who fought for my
country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I
must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.
"Changing the culture" sounds a bit un-free to me. Do we let Hollywood
and the game industry take the blame just on truth's say so?But
of all the reasons to arm individually, the worst has to be arming against
OURSELVES because the tyrants are coming. Even the 300 million guns the industry
has pumped into our country would be totally inadequate if
"self-invasion" ever happened. No Constitutional right is
absolute, and children shouldn't be part of the "cost of freedom".
Can't we instead try a few things that might help save some lives without
taking anyone's weapons away?
@Mark BSo what?There is always a cost to more
freedom.What we need is more gun and moral education not more
bans.People have the right to bear arms. Period.The
second amendment was created, not for sport, not hunting, but for the intent to
kill people to stop a tyrannical government bent taking our freedoms away,
foreign or domestic, if the need ever arises.We don't know if
the need will ever happen, but we hope it never happens.But you are
naive if think it can't happen, history is replete with it happening over
and over again.Perhaps it hasn't happened yet because we have
that right.There are better solutions than useless, feel good,
extreme and unconstitutional bans. Try education and changes to our hardening
Wow. Mr. F thinks that NO change works, therefore ALL change should be opposed.
I guess since there are still bank robberies taking place that means we should
give up trying to prohibit it as a "crime".And lost just
can't resist repeating the "cars kill people, too, but THEY'RE
still legal." argument once more, as if we've never heard it before.
Yes, and falling pianos are pretty lethal, but pianos have other uses, and are
seldom used in mass murders. We can and DO make cars safer, but accidents still
happen, though fewer than before.He fails to realize that 300
million guns do help make us the most gun-fatal nation on earth.
What a misleading headline! We could expect something like that from the NYT or
Atlanta Journal Constitution, MSNBC,or any other such disreputable media outlet,
but not the DN.The NRA does not oppose ANY charge to reduce gun
violence, they just oppose the liberal knee-jerk wrong-headed reaction to gun
violence.The dems' approach to the recent tragedy could be
likened to banning cars to stop drunk drivers.They fail to realize
that their liberalism has created a society where violence is praised and
EXTREMELY profitable (Torentino movies, call of duty and other uber violent
Reducing gun violence won't be done by banning anything. Case in point.
Yesterday's shooting in the school was with a shotgun. Won't be
banned by any of Biden's proposals.Nothing will change. Evil,
crazy, stupid people will still find ways to cause mass destruction regardless
of the gun laws in place.
