Tell me again how many people McVeigh killed with a gun? How many people in the Colorado theater would have died if at least one moviegoer had been armed? As far as Koresh goes, I'll state up front that the guy was a wacko nutjob and I don't in any way condone his actions, but how many people would have been killed in that compound had not the ATF tried to take his guns?

McVeigh HAD a handgun on the seat of his car when he was stopped by a police officer for having no plates on his car. McVeigh did not use the gun,and meekly allowed himself to be taken into custody. McVeigh was a SETUP,he was supposed to get caught,and he was supposed to be shot while being transported without body armor. While his "co-conspirator" Nichols who testified against McVeigh,was transported in full body armor with a huge armored neck collar.McVeigh was VERY quickly executed after his trial,because he would have spilled the beans if left alive in prison for a long time.McVeigh also could not have made such a complex bomb on his own,and gotten it all to detonate.

The first gun culture is deeply seated in American history and her founding. Founding Fathers like George Washington understood that an armed citizenry would prevent government tyranny, which is why we have the Second Amendment. This is a concept rapper...
