There seems to be a push toward government intervention and with all the shootings that keep getting publicized in the news, we will all eventually be affected by guns in some way. Now of course we have the 2nd Amendment (for now), but what if the government did attempted to take that right away? What you be comfortable giving up your right to LEGALLY protect yourself while criminals who already ILLEGALLY protect themselves will not only have an upper hand, but an open season to start hunting unarmed homes?

Great idea in my opinion. Now teach them how to use it properly and respect it. That's the problem, people don't respect the right to hold a life in their hands.
In the US the Government now monitors our phone calls, internet use and has centralized cameras in public places. With face recognition software they can trac most people's lives. Once they get the guns, we must obey, we must obey.
Mike you are reacting to the stories that main stream media is pushing out there. They don't tell you about the amount of gun killings that happen in the "Urban" areas all due to ILLEGAL guns. Legal guns are rarely used compared to ILLEGAL.
Your response is well argued.
Our nation is one built on independence. Lots of Americans died so that you can have the freedom to state that opinion you just stated. Without gun rights we are basically going backwards. read a history book, find out why we have the right.
Read a book written in this century. I don't live in the past. Guns did nothing to prevent the erosion of our democracy or the rise of the most powerful central government in existence. They are now irrelevant.
I can and will vote to keep my guns.
If Big Brother ever does get them, watch the street gangs rule your home and make you their "toy"
Living in fear of abstractions is a choice you are welcome to. I have better things to do.
Note that the best that junk can do is to "vote" to take our guns away. Actually ~taking~ them away himself? No... that is far beyond his capabilities and abilities. He may find that his 'taking" has much more blowback for him than he ever imagined.
Was wondering when you would show up. I believe in democracy, not authoritarian takings, so it wouldn't ever be MY taking, it would be ours. If you don't like democracy, that's your problem. Can't help you with that.
Yes indeed. Well said. Thumbs up. Finally some brains in here. And we were given that right BY our GOVERNMENT so that the inhuman things that happened in the past don't happen again.
