As we continue down this road to national suicide, I suspect that more and more folks think the way you do. You can push people just so far and eventually they will push back. I think the great American push-back is coming......
Illegal Mexicans get deported (read "safely escorted back to the border"). An American who actually trys to "defend" this country from invasion in the manner that any self respecting nation should be protected will go to prison for a very long time. Bottom line - Americans are not allowed to defend this nation without government consent - and our current and recent past federal government sees the invasion from the south as a good thing.
Mollycoddling those who participate in the invasion of our country from the south is what has created this problem. Does nobody understand that the act of deporting someone who walked across our border illegally does NOTHING to deter them from doing it again and again and again? When there are no adverse consequences to an illegal act, but there are potential payoffs to engaging in that act, you should expect a lot of that illegal activity. The Gang of 8 Idiots should pool their nuts and see if between the 8 of them if they have a pair. We know that McCain and Graham have nothing to contribute. If someone invades my house, I know how to deter that sort of behavior. I shoot them. How is this any different than illegal border crossing?

Government subsidized industries and monopolies are inefficient and wasteful. BTW: Only an idiot liberal Democrat would come up with the absurd apples in Florida analogy. Very, very strange.

"Remember Detroit" should become a slogan and rallying cry for conservatives. It is a perfect "shining example" of what to expect from Democrat/socialist intervention in an otherwise successful capitalist market. It's what happens when the government comes to "help."
Marsha Blackburn knows what we all know. Obama is lying....again. He does not shoot skeet all the time. He plays golf all the time, but not skeet. Obama wanted to sound as though he understands people who use weapons for sporting purposes. It doesn't work. It's lame and pathetic. There's even a photoshopped picture that has been tweeted that shows Obama holding a shotgun that had to be deleted because it was such an obvious fake.

The federal government has been violating the people's right to keep and bear arms for most of the 20th century. They didn't pass an amendment to override or nullify the 2nd Amendment, they simply passed the National Firearms Act. It's been updated numerous times. It's in direct violation of the 2nd Amendment and the federal government did it right in front of the people - in the name of protecting them. The people believed that the government was just doing what was best and the protests were not sufficient to get lawmakers to repeal the law. So here we are. We're not defenseless, but we're pretty close. If Obama and his ilk get their way we will be completely disarmed and will be completely defenseless against a tyranny.

Sorry, but states, counties, cities or towns cannot institute unconstitutional laws. If you want to repeal the 2nd Amendment, then get your mob together and give it a try. You can repeal an amendment by passing one. It takes a bit more than a mear majority to amend the constitution. You need a 2/3 majority in BOTH houses of congress and ratification in 3/4 of the state legislatures. Republics have a few barriers to mob rule and this is an example.

And you would accept a "guarantee?" From THIS government? Please tell me you are not that gullible.

But the 2nd Amendment spcifies arms - not any inanimate object. It specifically says that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. I understand your point, but I tend to side more with the right to remain free to defend against threats to our liberty - both foreign and domestic. Today I see our primary threat to liberty to be domestic - unfortunately.
