Yeah? Well, you could ask,"How's that working for ya ?" You look at all the countries that have instituted gun control, and darn near every one of them has been taken over by some sort of potentate, or other. It is said that in order to take over a country you have to : Control the media--- Done Take away guns --- Working on it. And believe me, Obamasan is working on it seriously. He might not be saying just that, but you can darn well assume that he is working on it behind the scenes constantly.

Hey Marine. This is ever so true. Ban guns, silence speech, disperse crowds, burn newspapers and make everyone kneel at your statue with your left foot over the right. When those laws are passed they will once again ban alcohol and declare martial law in any city-state that voted against the current administration. Naturally your pay check will be have direct deposit and be payable to the government so they can dole out your money to the non-working class who did vote for the current administration.
By the way.....if your car is newer than 15 years old - turn it in for an older model and don't even think of going to Hawaii with your fat lipped wife.

owning and controlling the media. Taking away our guns. Turning our children into atheists by banning the Lord God from every public place. These three things are the only things keeping America free. Lose these and all is lost. Our belief in God is the only thing between us and the Muslims. Israel and America are the last strongholds. Let's keep it that way.

Back in my less sophisticated days (shocking as it may seem, I wasn’t always the mature, statesmanlike figure I am today), I sometimes resorted to silly arguments when debating gun control, such as, “does this mean you want to ban knives since they also can be used to kill people?”

Smarter opponents would scoff and accuse me of knocking down straw men, assuming a non-existent slippery slope, or engaging in reductio ad absurdum.

I wasn’t even sure what the last one meant, but I secretly felt chagrined because I also thought the...
