... never say never.. not too long ago you could carry lighters and sometimes even a pocket knife on a plane.. now, you can barely take your
toothpaste.. if you'd have told people 10 years ago, one day they'd let absolute strangers feel up their wives and daughters, they'd have told you
over my dead body, but now.. they look the other way.. don't even care. they don't see anything wrong with giving up rights and liberties in the name
of national security and personal safety... that's all it'll take...one day, a day which i hope never comes, they will try to take them.. and the
majority of americans will let them, that's just the way it is, people wanna feel safe, it doesn't matter whether they are or not.. they just want to
FEEL safe.. and to most people making sure criminals don't have guns is the best way to do it..
and for those talking about "poppin' a cap" (making funny sideways gun motion), it's not that easy. hollywood and inflated egos would have us believe
it's easy to do. but, even just shooting at a person is nerve racking. let alone the idea of actually taking another person's life. there have been
plenty of homeowners found murdered, in their homes, gun in hand, with 'ner' shot fired..
BUT, don't forget.. this IS the united states of america... we have a few things on our side...
our founding fathers were smart enough to know one day this might happen... so they gave us the tenth amendment...

for those who don't know, the tenth amendment basically gives each state the right to nullify federal laws.
and while it might not be plastered all over the nightly news, we have one hell of a black market..... so even if they take 'em.. they won't be
but, being as all the links were old, except the email from the gun rights "group", who are probably just trying to scam money, i wouldn't worry..
but, on the other hand..ehh, well.. that's prolly best left for another thread...
