The First and more than likely ONLY step that everyone needs to do is VOTE THESE POWER HUNGREY THIEVING BASTARDS OUT OF OFFICE.
Our forefathers understood that this would happen that is why we have the voting process and if that fails the right to bear arms.

Brunei the only way to get alcohol is if you are a foreigner (once again non-islamic is essential) and you bring it in yourself... so if the states are worse than this (and there is more to it than those examples) the situation there is worse than i thought... at least Brunei and Malaysia dont go invading everyone else

I cannot understand the US fascination with gun ownership. Guns do not make you safe. If everyone has guns, criminals, psychopaths, your crazy neighbors, that does not actually make it safer.
As gun ownership rises, violent crime drops. The more likely that a victim may be armed, the less likely that he - or she - will be attacked. And when victims are attacked, guns tilt the odds in their favor. Government data show that women who don't resist when confronted by an attacker end up seriously hurt 2.5 times more often than women who resist with a gun. For men, it's 1.4 times more often.
In an exhaustive marathon of research, University of Chicago Law School professor John Lott and economist David Mustard analyzed FBI crime records from all 3,054 US counties over a 19-year period (1977-1995). Nothing, they found, had a more decisive impact in lowering violent crime rates than the adoption of ''shall-issue'' laws - i.e., laws giving adults with no criminal record the right to carry concealed handguns.
Such laws are now in force in 31 states. ''Our most conservative estimates,'' writes Lott, ''show that by adopting shall-issue laws, states reduced murders by 8.5 percent, rapes by 5 percent, aggravated assaults by 7 percent, and robbery by 3 percent.'' The effect is especially pronounced in big cities. ''In counties with populations of more than 200,000, concealed-handgun laws produced an average drop in murder rates of more than 13 percent.''
