Why do you want a gun like that?
Stock up, the boogie man might get ya!
I did some work with a "gun enthusiast" and there was just no reasoning
with him. He was convinced that the government was going to take all of his
guns, and once the guns were gone the American population would be enslaved by
the despotic leaders. No amount of logic or evidence could make him see things
differently. He was getting all of his information about life from
media out lets that were just echoing all of this own beliefs. Good luck
getting to this crowd.
Why is Obama attacking law abiding citizens. Go after the criminals not the
This kind of paranoid behavior is another indication of why we need more
screening for mental health issues before anyone can purchase a gun.But seriously, many people with violent histories of domestic abuse, many
active gang members and others who probably shouldn't be anywhere near a
gun CANNOT be restricted from owning and carrying a weapon. Why? They
haven't been convicted of a felony.Misdemeanors don't
count. If they are arrested carrying a gun, the gun must be returned when they
are released.Should one aspect of all this be a look at expanding
the rules to include violent misdemeanors in the list of offenses that will
prevent a person from having a gun?
The main headline in the paper this morning said something to the effect that
Utahns oppose President Obama's gun plan. For the sake of balanced
coverage, how about a story that indicates many Utahns applaud President
Obama's efforts to rein in excessive gun liberties in America? Believe it
or not, we're not all crazy gun nuts here in the Beehive State.
For those of you who love gun control laws, move to Chicago where guns are
banned. You will be safe there, right?
Obama is the best sell rep the gun industry could have.
Well, the USA is a super safe place to live. There will never be a need to
defend yourself or have a civil war again and 100% of good people trust the
government 100% to protect us. No other Countries will ever invade the US. Oh
wate common sence kicking in... stock up!
