Signing laws that have not even been passed is not a sign of people following the rules or going by the normal checks and balances
REPLY: A president cannot sign into law a law that has not been passed. If a president made an executive order doing what you propose, it would be
public knowledge within 30 days, and those who monitor those things would pass it on very quickly. Also, remember that any law that is in
contradiction to the Constitution has no standing before the court
If they wanted to disarm all american citizens I believe they could make it happen.
REPLY: As mentioned above, there is nothing in the Constitution mentioning a back door around the second amendment. I half expected to see something
hapen during Waco (and maybe Ruby Ridge) but it didn't affect enough people, I suppose. Waco happened for two reasons: to distract things happening
during the previous admin's extra-cirricular activities (China Gate), and because at the time there were strong efforts to get rid of the ATF
(something I agree with). So, Waco was drummed up to justify the need for the ATF.
The same way you say it makes you feel safe that cops walking around with automatic weapons, those guns can just turn the slightest bit in your
direction and the safety will disappear and turn into something else. You would have no choice.
REPLY: That depends on where you live. If you have a clean record, you have the Constitutional right to "carry open", with a gun on your hip, as
long as it's in plain view (it's when you get in your vehicle that things change, unless you have it on the dashboard).
How serious am I about the scenario you mentioned? My son is in the Marines. If they were given the order to go house to house and confiscate
weapons, and he came to my house, I would no longer have a son; he'd be dead. We've discussed this, and he knows it to be true.
Remember this: whenever you hear some anti-gun whacko say "If we allow so many people to carry concealed, it's 'gonna be like Dodge City in the old
West." In actuality, Dodge City was one of the most peaceful towns in the old West. Why? Because everyone had guns. Those whackos just watched too
many hollywood westerns.
