    I Just Have To Speak Up

    Two days after the Vegas tragedy, I began to peruse online articles and to submit my 2 cents worth in Comments sections following articles. There is so much emotion out there in liberal world. I found it .... I guess 'entertaining' ... to say the least debating some of these folks who think firearms bans are the way to go. I held out for a day, and then i found it necessary to jump in on a target rich traditionally liberal web site CNN. Highly recommended for a good laugh.

    I have been reading a lot too.

    They need to understand that cars and trucks are deadly, knives are deadly, planes are deadly, baseball bats are deadly, pipe wrenches/hammers/etc. are deadly, so is alcohol and cigarette consumption. All cause more deaths than guns already and the big inanimate objects can and have been used as weapons and can kill on a larger scale, or contribute to more total deaths a year so until all of those things are banned, don't even think of touching my guns.

    Also, of all the gun deaths in a year, the lion's share is from suicide, a lot from police shooting criminals, and most of the rest of the gun deaths can be traced to maybe 10 very large cities. So there it is, the responsible gun owner in the rest of America isn't the problem. Getting a Libtard to agree with reason largely isn't going to happen, so they will continue to harp away at the NRA and other BS based on feelings and misinformation, or lack of information.

      Also, it is just impossible for "guns" to be the problem.
      These shootings are a somewhat recent social behavior phenomenon. We had 1903 Springfield rifles (firing pin removed or barrel blocked but still real guns) in my junior high school for JROTC in the '80s, there was a rack with 30+ rifles in class, now you can't draw a picture of a gun without getting punished or expelled. Many of us in the South and MidWest brought guns to school to hunt after school, and even had them in gun racks in their truck at school every day. The teacher even brought his personal guns to class for safety instruction at my school. There were no shootings back then, and guns were not only present but prolific, so therefore it cannot be the gun, it is crazy ass people that is the problem.

        What amazes me is how liberals continue to ignore the thugs using stolen money to buy stolen guns from the trunk of a stolen car.

        I agree Brian. Guns have always been around. So what the hell is going on? Is there just an overwhelming sense of hopelessness and despair? I'm not psychiatrist and can't begin to guess ... but clearly a change is afoot. People are cracking as they always have, but now it seems sick folks seek fame. And with the proliferation of social media, the psychos are assured they will get it. What a tragic life they lead.

        We should pay attention to this crackpot's motive ... and go back over the last couple of decades and try to determine commonality. It's not the tools.

          The libtard agenda........ I'm no conspiracy theorist, but the wife just showed me a vid of what looked like someone at ground level firing into the crowd. Like the black gal that hung herself in the TX jail I put nothing past these people, the ends justify the means. Whatever it takes too take what's yours or your ability too defend what's yours.

            Even as a kid in Ca in the 70's,and 80's,firearms were not cursed devices of death and destruction",as they are now there.

              I was in Southern Cal during that same time period, also as a kid. Gun control wasn't a front page topic there either. If you've ever lived in So Cal, you know that the radical left agenda is highly focused to a small subset of neighborhoods. I knew plenty of cops/firemen/hunters/target shooting guys who quietly represented 50% gun rights support in Southern Cal. All YOU see is what media wants yous to see. Unfortunately, the radical left has a stranglehold on the media. That's never stopped Patriots from getting the job done when the call is made to do so. In So Cal, Patriots include people of all colors ... largely, White, Hispanic and Asian and some African Americans - but the left doesn't want you to know that.

            The assassinations of John and Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King turned gun control into a hot bed issue for the Dems. When an attempt was made on Gerald Ford and President Reagan was shot I do not remember the Dems calling for more gun control.

              Yeah - out of the Reagan assassination attempt came the Brady Act/Law ... but that seems to have been driven mostly by Brady's wife and eventual breadth of supporters. This, as opposed to an immediate political outcry. Were things really done differently back then (I was about 14 and probably not paying too much attention to politics at the time) or was it just not politically expedient to complain about THAT particular gun incident?

                Reagan was elected in 1980. He was shot in March 30 1981. Brady Act was passed in 1993. Bill Clinton was President in 1993.

                  Well, the ones that made there attempt on Ford were all crazy women? for some reason they liked coming at him when he was golfing... Reagan's attacker was a real legit nut job, I'm not old enough for JFK, Bobby or MLK. But don't think that the Dem's are not willing too eat there own look at George Wallace, Southern dixicrat that had a lot of power, and his party turned there back.

                    I saw a list one time and can't confirm it as fact but it listed all the recent mass shooters and most were (D)s. Kinda ironic. Sounds like we need to ban Liberals.

                      The shootings of Bobby Kennedy and MLK brought about GCA (Gun Control Act) 68. That's when mail order of firearms was for all intents and purposes banned. I remember when JFK was shot as if it happened yesterday. I was only 8 yo so can't report on the political aspects of it but I remember the shooting.
                      My dad was an NRA member all his adult life. I remember a bumper sticker he had. It read REGISTER COMMUNISTS--NOT FIREARMS.

                        I was 9 yrs old when JFK was shot and like you remember it as if it was yesterday. Even at 9 yo I was a news junkie. I remember all the new reports calling for outlawing mail order gun sales and importation of mil surplus guns. GCA of 68 did both. I remember a NBC Special report on mail order gun sales before the passage of GCA68. NBC had a 12yr old boy( if I recall correctly) he was the son of the producer mail order a 20mm semi auto Lahti anti tank gun. They showed the gun being delivered to the 12 yr old in a big wooden box. Then they took the Lahti to a quarry and shot it. They shot it against the stone walls of the quarry and showed what it did to the stone face of the wall. Least say that really impressed me. I do not recall what rounds they used but the vison of the stone shattering is still in my mind. Plus they shot it as rapid as they could till the mag was empty. At 15yrs old (1968) I joined the NRA as a junior member. At that time you has to have someone sponsor you to join the NRA. A gentleman who was full time NJNG but worked part time at the neighborhood gas station sponsored me. He also lent me his back issues of the American Rifleman. Those back issues were full of articles on gun control.
