It think it was a Brit named Kipling who wrote . . ."When the Cambian Measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace. They said, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease ! But, when we disarmed they sold us, and delivered us bound, to our foe. And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said,"Stick to the Devil you KNOW". . . . When such things were taught in public schools, I managed passing metal-shop and chemistry, and I KNOW I could walk into a hardware store and purchase what I needed to MAKE a usable firearm. Ignoring reality does not make it go away. Unless, you want to outlaw pre-frontal lobes ! Yeah ! That'd even take care of sharp rocks and pointed sticks ! IDIOT!

LOL. And I suppose the same goes for sharp rocks and pointed sticks ? When such useful things used to be taught in public schools, I got by with an average grade in metal-shop and chemistry, and I KNOW I could walk into an average hardware store and purchase what I need to MAKE a workable, useable firearm. Bring peace to society through disarmament ? I suppose we could ban those nasty pre-frontal lobes humans are born with. Yeah, thats it. Lobotomy for everyone !

I'm not a user myself, but what was needed to make drug legalization actually work, was the government NOT spend TAX money on repairing the life of the user who turned to crime or became a useless addict. Is he dying on the street because he used too much ? Ohhh, isn't that too bad.

All these truly Wacky examples at governing by presidential declaration are disturbing. He seems to be placing the foundation, if not the frame-work, to enable him to declare martial law prior to the the election, or before his successor can take office. Buy gold ? Buy bottled water,jerky, and V-8!
It is NOT that His Highness BHO and his appointees do not understand the damage to the US Constitution they are causing. The damage is INTENTIONAL. How DARE we put themselves above the mud-huts and castles existence of the rest of the world ? BHO is deliberately TRYING to disassemble the US. Wake up folks !
Unarmed peasants in mud huts, and wise(so they tell themselves) rulers in castles. I's what happens, and where the US is headed. When the world is run by a "what could be if everyone was fair and got along", instead of a "hey, look at this. I can advance myself if I work at improving this" policy. Individuals become just another worker ant in the colony that protects the breeders.. Which one are you going to be, who-ever is reading this? What does that tell you about yourself ?
Wow. Scarey. So many crank heads have the right to vote ? I mean. WOW ! "Each generation is an invasion of little barbarians, who must be taught to be civilized before they take over". Parents who allow their children to form their own violent sub-cultures, influenced by those who agrandise violence and failure to accept consequences, are the ones to blame. Human results can only be blamed on human causes.
It just seems, well, strange, that O'Reilly, a columnist of such (self-professed) knowlege, is bandying about such phrases as "heavy weapons" and "machine guns" and "AK-47",etc without appearing to really have a basic amount of Technical information on the subject. (ie: how they function) other than what one can glean from a shreiking "Ban All Gunz" letter to the editor of the NY Times. Maybe he is trying to hint that more of the anti-gun crowd should become a bit more literate on the subject if they don't want to sound like fools when they debate him ? Hope so.
Hey ! I never thought of that situation from that direction before ! I know the character of most of the folks in my neighborhood. I KNOW the streets would be cleaner within a few days of a national LEO strike. Maybe we could try it, just in a small area at first. We could call it Huntin' Season !
Well said Ms Brittany. I know when I'm asked why I own firearms, I reply that, in case the inquisitor hadn't noticed, that there are people out there who actually WANT to shoot other people. I spent over 30 years answering 911 calls and sending LEO's and FR's out. I think I can say with something of an experts view, that when one's life and that of their family's is at stake, and seconds count, The Police are only minutes away.
