dont ignore me purple. i had a legitamate response. ill give you an example. imagine that us christians took over the government and forced you you to goto church and if you had sex out of marriage we would hang you. if you didnt worship in our church we would extricate you and remove all your weapons and force you to be a slave. that is what england DID. the reason we have guns is to prevent the government to control us. the tables have turned. do you really feel comfortable with forcing others not to believe what you do?

Yes, I know the rationale for the 2nd amendment. Of course you're no longer interested in owning the kinds of guns the framers had, right? Or at least you'd like a pistol in addition to your musket?

They never mentioned muskets. Nor implied it.

They only understood Tyrrants like Obama. And warned against him.

you really believe that? all you have to do is look at other nations in civil war. take syria as an example you probably think they are in a war becuase they are barbarians. the reality is they want freedom. they may be muslim but still they want freedom. imagine if romney got elcted and we had control of the senate and outlawed sodomy. not that your gay they keep calling you that . i dont know but think about it. when you take a mans defense away he is a slave.

Probably a better punishment would be making Purple the commie go to bed with the opposite sex.

"The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executives orders, there's executive action that can be taken.
