BEWARE of the "mentally unstable" clause in gun control!! Through Obamacare your medical records can become govt. information.

This is one way the LIBTURDS want to grab guns!

It was the one of deadliest mass shooting incidents in American history.

The nation was in shock, as it is now following the December mass murder at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

The press and public outcry was the same then as now. How can we stop horrors like this from occurring? We’ve got to stop criminals and...
