If this was outrage against "violence" I could support it if focused on
violent criminals.However, this is a deliberate ploy to use some
truly tragic cases as an excuse to attack the right of law abiding citizens to
own firearms- many of which are used in legitimate self-defense AGAINST violent
criminal attacks. I am against criminals who attack others with
fists, knives, baseball bats, machetes, automobiles, tree limbs or whatever.
Let's crack down on them (the criminals) and stop the naive or sly twisting
of this to attack gun rights.
Those concerned about gun violence should ask Rep. Jim Matheson to propose a

Re: one old man Ogden, UTNice attempt to put up a smoke screen but

sheriff should have called it. Deaths and injuries of young, old, and citizens
in USA are the collateral of all the Bill of Rights it has always been and meant
when it was written 250 years ago. These are the eternal everlasting sacrifices
who gave their lives for our freedom to do as we wish.This nation has come
under attack from within and foreign invasion and occupation that has forced our
citizens to take up arms to defend their country even while in our own homes.These are the honors all patriots deserve serving their nation at any
age.We must thank god we still have these rights to morn our dead or
praise our living in safety and without peril or fear of government arrest and
detention, I think its still legal.
This is exactly why those of us who believe in the 2nd Amendment right to own
and bear firearms are so disgusted with those in Washington who dreamed up
Operation Fast and Furious. That operation lead to the arming of Mexican drug
dealers and the murder of a US Border Patrol Agent.We have laws
regarding who can and who can't possess firearms. The time has come for us
to enforce those laws against the criminals who disobey those laws.
