My two cents ya know for a forum designed to search for truth and deny ignorance there sure are a lot of violent gun nuts. Guess paranoia and conspiracy go hand in hand. I am a little put back when i here all this talk of what guns people have and what they would do with them if ....
I dunno its just a bit freaky. I am coming to realize why there are so many accidental shootings.
Go easy folks nobodys coming for your guns itll be okay.
How simple is this? We have laws against Heroin use in America. A medical doctor can't write a prescription for it, yet a ten year old child can buy it on a street corner in any major city. So you can tell me all you want to about passing laws against gun ownership, the criminal element will still be able to get them. Your theory is not valid.

There seems to be a central issue that most of you are missing here - or have you Americans become too jaded? The tighter restriction on guns will hopefully stop the prevalence of gun massacres.
Get real, people. Until you get rid of guns you will never will never get rid of gun violence. Simple as that.

Seems to me that I recall the government of Australia is clamping down on the freedom of the internet as well.
Here in the good old US of A, they conduct wiretaps of the phones and monitor other forms of communication. Would hate to see what they would try if there could be no chance of an armed resistance whatsoever.
Guess it boils down to the old saying about preparedness: Better to have it and not need than to need it and not have it.
I was making a very SIMPLE point. To quote you,"uh". I really don't know how to make it much SIMPLER for you. You think making guns illegal would stop gun violence. Just like passing laws against heroin would eradicate it ( hint: You can still buy it illegally and it is available... nobody asks for ID or anything!) It is called an ANALOGY.

No reply to the constant gun massacres though...
Isn't that the bigger issue?
