i am a gun enthusiast and collector, but laugh at all the people crying about how a ban would trample their rights. they cry about how they wont sit still while our constitutional rights are taken away or violated (not all the people mind you, but still a majority of them). if they were so serious about protecting rights, they would be opposing Joe Arpaio. he trampled the living shit out of the rights of many people in his jails who have never even been found guilty or had their day in court. (look at Deborah Braillard or Marty Atencio). all these people are crying about is THEIR rights and the rest of the world be damned. if they were serious about protecting rights, they would also be standing up for the rights of EVERYONE. i am speaking out for everyones rights. i want my gun rights, but i have no right to affect the safety of others to have my rights. by the same reasoning if i want my rights, i have to stand up for yours, and people like Marty Atencio and Deborah Braillard's too. this country doesnt belong to me and me alone so when i try to fight for my rights i need to fight for the rights of others too. i cant expect to have only rights guaranteed for me and none in effect for others. if you want to stand up for the violated rights of people like Marty and Deborah who not only lost their rights but their lives as well.........then go ahead and shout from the rooftops for your rights. if you arent defending their rights also, then you have no place to cry about your rights either

Mark, think 2016, you vs. McCain. To repeat the old Republican mantra, "It's time for a change."

Even more reason why the NRA should encourage responsible gun legislation.


@danzigsdaddy So true and well put.  People are so vested in the narrow issues that interest them, whether that be First Amendment speach, First Amendment religion, Second Amendment guns, or whatever it is and forget that the Bill of Rights really only works in its entirety as an integrated document read as a whole.  The entire Bill of Rights embodies those concepts that make America a special place in the world.  Your comment is an important reminder of that. 


@danzigsdaddy keep in mind also, this is the same party that wants to force rape victims to carry a baby conceived from it to term, force women thinking about abortion to have an ultra sound done, limit birth control, etc, etc....but banning assault weapons is really what violates our rights, right? lol

@MaskedMagician1967  Except some of these mass or multiple shooters ARE  responsible gun owners, until the day they aren't.


@66rock @MaskedMagician1967 THANK YOU 66ROCK!! How can no one get that?
