    Make no mistake universal backround checks are about totally controlling and knowing who has what gun and why. This is the first step to eventual confiscation, the government does not have a right to infringe on what is a sacred amendment to the constitution. The left will always do things they say is good for the public but somehow takes away our FREEDOMS!!!

    I have serious philosophical and practical issues with the idea that someone can tell me, how, when, and where I can protect myself, my loved ones, and my property.

    Our second amendment rights are a an important responsibility.
    If we do not keep our guns and our right to defend ourselves we will be at the mercy of our government. Please read your history. Those who act like sheep are eventually owned by those who talked them into it. Do not believe they will protect you. We are being gently protected out of all our freedoms. Too many of us live in Ivory towers giving our personal responsibilities to others. Remember . . those who do not read their history are doomed to repeat it. We are living on the edge . . . like the people before Hitlers Germany. A few were aware and fought back but were extinguished because not enough citizens were awake to the danger. We can still turn the tide if we will wake up and stand up like men.

    I don't get it.

    Obama seems desperate to control our guns, but will send fighter jets, tanks, and money to Egypt.

    Will someone please explain (spin) this.

    It's not gun control! It's government control.

    How many people died for the right to bare arms. And to think that would be all in vain.

    All your information is incorrect.

    Gun manufacuture control no on. but whether of not you own a maufactuing company, do you not have right to a voice?

    THe NRA is funded by over 4 million members.

    The Gun Control people are funded by the likes of one man, billionaire Bloomberg and other very rich progressives and leftest elites.

    The voice of over 4 million compared to a few men, who is trying to control who?

    It amazes me that the GUN Tail wage the dog. Who gave the Gun Manufacturers the right to control the peoples government. Lets be honest the NRA is financed by the Gun Manufacturers not by the members and the man with the money calls the tune.

    Take away their armed guards, and require Obama care,--for all politicians, Hollywood stars, and their families.

    Negotiations would improve.
