    They are protecting their guns from the crazy conspiracy that caused them to buy excessive amounts. How many weapons can you shoot to defende your residence? If a Militia, better get a drone up with hellfire missiles.

    Why can't these posters get it through their heads that there is NO proposal to confiscate privately owned guns or ammo? Any type, any accessories, any ammo clips are all OK as long as they're privately owned. No one is coming for your guns, including the Chinese and North Koreans. You can keep them all, but would it be asking too much to keep all the household weapons locked up?

    More guns will protect us.

    Give more guns to more people with minimal training.

    In the meantime, some California police officers -- who we suppose are very well trained -- made a small mistake while searching for the rogue cop out there.

    They opened fire on a car containing a 70-something year old woman and one or two of her friends or relatives.

    But in Utah, we know that training and experience isn't really necessary. Our CCW permits reflect that belief. All that is needed is enough money to buy a gun and sit in class for a few hours.

    Yeah, I guess it makes sense -- but only if you happen to be completely insane enough to believe it.

    Protect kids

    By protecting guns!

    common sense. well, to most of us anyway. With the build up of Chinese military operations, along with North Korea and the already unstable crazies of the Middle East. Now is not the time to weaken our military. It would be more prudent to strengthen it. Along those lines, now is the worst possible time for a citizen to be unarmed. The mentally challenged are many as has been recently shown. Not to mention gangs that laws haven't affected for 20 years. Just because there are laws on the books doesn't mean they are enforced properly. I will not sit idly by and wait for police protection to "save" me from someone trying to harm my family. Nope. I will defend my home and self accordingly.

    Protecting families, one at a time. Thank you Mr. Winchester!

    From the United States Constitution:

    2nd. The right of the people to keep and bear arms is necessary to the security of a free State.

    10th. Power is reserved to the States respectively, or to the People.

    The government of the United States IS the free PEOPLE so it would be treason for a politician to advocate the usurping of the peoples power (government) by taking the peoples guns.
