They can come up with whatever reason they want, americans have over 220 million guns, way more than the military even has, now if you know about the ammo shortages, there is enough ammo and firepower in the country to absolutely take over. The leadership of France new before they were captured and beheaded that they were pushing things, my guess is ours knows the same.

TPTB will try to figure out ANY loophole or angle that they can as an excuse to disarm the populace.
So now the shootings in the Mexican cartel war are because of AMERICAN guns being used?
Do these people think that the entire populace is completely DAFT?
We really need to keep an eye on these people---They are more dangerous than the cartels to us.
(visit the link for the full news article)
The cartels have gotten more and more twisted since they took over the meth market. They stay up for days and turn into monsters, and the police forces are cowards

That is why police forces and military exists, because most folks are not up to that kind of fight; at least not until it affects them personally.
At that point, an individual or a few guys might have a hard time against a whole gang. Again, I say, that is what the police, militia and military are for.
Your real problem is that your local, state and fed. government are not owning up to the task. Thats where most of you should be putting your effort - getting those bastards out of office if they are not doing their job ensuring the protection of the average citizen -- and obviously they are not.
Good luck to you. I also grew up somewhat with guns here in Canada, but they were used in the wild against rabbits, bear and deer, not people.
