Remember, when guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Remember Kent State, Ruby Ridge, Waco, Texas. Kent State, unarmed students were mowed down by US National Guard Troops....And I hear all the time, American Military wouldn't take orders to shoot American Citizens....YES THEY WILL, does Acorn/New Black Panthers concern you at all. Obama's Civilian Fema Army....coming to a neighborhood near you. They already graduated their first bunch of mind numb children. Sounds like the 30's all over again.

Difficulty in getting change in our country is an ongoing source of frustration. Particularly when we have huge problems facing us as we do today.

But the founders knew what they were doing setting up the checks and balances of our constitutional republic. The delicate arrangement we call freedom should never submit with ease to a charismatic demagogue or to an emotion filled crisis.

The current push for gun control is case and point. It is at a time like this that we should be grateful that changing our laws is hard to do.

Every normal and decent American wants to...
