Too often it takes a naturalized American to explain to a native born American what liberty is. When you wave a magic wand and make citizens of illegals they neither know nor care for the history of liberty and our country. It is the legal immigrants that America needs not the illegal variety.

Too often it takes an Einstein to explain to non-Americans why America is so gun obsessed, and feel that it is the solution to every problem.

sorry brighty....wrong...bzzzzz....You feel we conservatives & Constitutionalists think that guns are the only answer. You're wrong. Just like justified war guns are _ONE_ of the answers to every day violence. They are not the only answer. The firearm is just a tool. In the right hands it is a tool to maintain order & safety for the law abiding. In the wrong hands it is a tool that causes death, destruction, harm, & pain.

For some reason you progressives can not seem to make a logical distinction between the two.

It was more of a wish than a problem, however.

Those Bill of Rights are pretty pesky things to a liberal.

During a recent public hearing in Hartford, Connecticut about gun violence, the same hearing where the Sandy Hook father explained why his daughter is safer at home where he can protect her with firearms than at school, legal immigrant Henson Ong argued against gun control legislation being proposed in the state. Ong cited American history, the Los Angeles riots of the 1990s and tyranny overseas as examples as to why the Second Amendment is needed. He also pointed out that the United States has a long history of gun ownership ranging from high school rifle teams to hunting, yet...
