It's about time for another government shut-down.
I kind of liked the last shutdown, traffic was less, we had people stepping up to mow the lawns of national park areas and it was quiet.
NO ONE CAN OR IS GOING TO TAKE YOUR GUNS FROM YOU. Do you even understand how amending the Constitution works? It would require several steps, most importantly a 3/4 majority vote in EVERY STATE. It's never going to happen, it's not realistic.

WHAT about Iran-Contra and the congressional hearings?
WHAT about the "October Surprise"?
You did NOT address anything I mentioned...I do NOT have time to educate YOU.
I'd like to KNOW how AWARE you are of Iran-Contra and the October Surprise?
Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy led a group of his Democratic colleagues in a filibuster Wednesday morning in an attempt to force votes on two gun control measures in the wake of the Orlando shooting. Murphy is seeking up and down votes on two bipartisan measures.
One would ban those on the FBI’s terrorism watch list from purchasing firearms or explosives, a measure that might have prevented the weekend tragedy at a gay nightclub, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, as the shooter Omar Mateen, had been on the FBI watch list at one time.
The second measure would close the so-called Charleston loophole in background checks, fully funding three-day background checks to ensure felons and drug users are not purchasing weapons. That bill would have prevented convicted drug user Dylann Roof from buying the gun he allegedly used to shoot nine people to death in a Charleston church a year ago Friday. [Source]
