    Am I wrong about this ? I wonder .........................

    The federal government and  congress are about to impose or re-impose strict[er] gun laws on law abiding citizens restricting magazine sizes , the "assault "appearances of some rifles and   handguns , possibly ammunition sales , definately more taxation and  background checks !  And for what ..............For more revenue ! And  Thats all it will change ! to raise more revenue  from law abiding gunowners to spend in general fund programs .   Mark my words !........This will not change the out come of even ONE  sycho  from going over his edge of the cliff and murdering more children in masses .

    As an avid shooter, I have never ever understood all the emphasis placed on how many rounds a magazine can hold.  I can do a mag change in 1 1/2 seconds and I am 75 years old.  Besides, if I didn't stop the bad guy with the rounds in the first magazine, I ought to be running like hell.
    Your right, none of what they are attempting to do will stop the mayhem caused by the psychos running loose on our streets.  We need to deal with the psychos, not the the tools they use.

      Considering the most recent murderers armed themselves legally, it would probably deter a select few.

      Unless you can justify a need for citizens owning semi-automatic, automatic weapons, and higher capacity magazines, who does it really hurt?

    Gun control laws have never been about curbing violence on the streets or in our schools. It has always been about governmental control of the population. The government does not fear the crazies, in fact, the government is run by them.

    Do you actually think the United States is opposed to violence? Not at all. Just look at the television programs they allow to be aired, not to mention the violent songs that are played from coast to coast.

    In addition, Congress has admitted that the CIA commits over 100,000 serious human rights violations each and every year...at a MINIMUM. Hence, I would not put it past the CIA, FBI and special forces to place hits on US citizens to help usher new gun legislation along.

    Fact is, the US Joint Chiefs of Staff considered putting hits on US citizens in order to blame it on Castro, thus using it as a pretext for war...and this was in 1962 while the US was watching "Leave it to Beaver" and dancing to the "Peppermint Twist".

    Then take into consideration the violent action the US has taken in the Middle East and the violent action the Supreme Court has taken against babies, to the tune of 50,000,000 murdered babies in the past 40 years.

    At the end of the day, the USA has adopted a culture of death and are one of the most violent places on earth...and it begins right at the top. A corrupt, tyranical government only has reason to fear those who would pose a threat to their power. The general street thug is of no concern to them and neither is the death of their own people.

    At the end of the day the Global Elites who run the US government are gearing up to wage war agianst the American people and they are just trying to stack the odds, heavily in their favor.

      So, let me get this straight... they want to limit our access to guns so we'll become more violent?

      The US government wants to hamper responsible citizens from being able to revolt against the coming tyranny which will be unleashed on them. The US government, like any tyrant, only worries about those who will oppose them. Gun owners are a threat.

    I agree with you, ahorseback!  It is not the guns that are the problem, it has more to do with a mental health issue.  The problem is, many people haven't even had an evaluation to determine whether they have a mental issue or not. There could be many nuts running around and we don't even know it. If a person wants to kill some one, they will find a way regardless.  Its a shame we live in a world where a lot of people don't have any respect for man kind.  God have mercy on us all!

      I agree that it is a shame that we live in a world where a lot of people do not have any respect for mankind. I think most of them are either employed by the Pentagon, White House or work on Capitol Hill.

    You are so right.  It's all about the buck. The more of my bucks and rights the government has the happier they are.

    Sorry I think you are wrong.  Legit gun owners will have no problem being registered and really why do so many Americans need to have all that weaponry.  In the US over 10,000 people were killed by guns last year.  Only 52 in Canada and 8 in the UK.  Moving towards saving one life IS worth it.

      More people are killed hitchhiking in Canada than through gun violence. It doesn't mean the crazies aren't there, because they are...they just pick and choose their victims more carefully. Let's also ban cars, because they kill more people than guns.

      CJ Sledgehammer I can't find your statistics, however 10,000+ killed in America by guns, where it is not even the highest gun owning country per capita, it is the highest of deaths in a western nation. Finland has more guns than the US, less deaths
