    Hey anybody see Obama's - Eric Holder there? Buying more guns for his Fast & Furious Crew? AKA - the Mexican Drug Cartel

    So where is the outrage for the over medicating our school children ? Ages 6 thru 18 ? Psychotropic Drugs are the reason for all the shootings at our schools , businesses , movie theaters , etc. This is a fact and easily verified. So why is this allowed ? Why no real media coverage ? O the real business is about getting them guns out of the hands of the Patriotic Americans.

    Coast to Coast gun shows are having unbelievable attendance & why is that ? So what stops a bad guy with a gun? A well trained Good Samaritan with a gun

    when are people going to realize that a gun isn't a terrible thing, or access to guns isn't necessarily terrible either. the poster above states that it's too convenient to get a gun in this country. Maybe it is. But that isn't the point. Someone who has crossed the line in his/her mind to do ill to another person, is going to do so with or without a gun. They could choose any form of weapon. Some argue that large capacity magazines makes it easier to kill more and to a certain extent that is true, however, 99.9% of those who use those magazines or types of firearms are law abiding citizens. If someone is so messed up mentally that they are looking for large capacity firearms to kill people, maybe they should be in a doctors care in the first place. Much has been said recently about the lack of adequate mental health care. Using the argument that because a few recent shootings are 1 too many, I would suggest we outlaw vehicles, because I witnessed a fatal accident last week (drunk driver no less) and that is 1 "accident" too many. Cars kill!

    The picture looks like they're all standing in front of a salad bar, all the sides of ammo, bowls full of clips, a healthy heaping helping of bushmaster semiautomatic with hollow point bullets... but nah... it's not too convenient or easy to get guns in this country.

    Sounds like the safest place in the nation to be right now. When was the last mass shooting at a gun show???
