If our Founding Fathers were alive today, they would no doubt be members of a pro-gun group. That statement might sound rather wild ; but really, if one knows Colonial history, it’s not. Indeed, it is hard to overstate how much our Founding Fathers cherished the firearm.
What America needs is a moral revolution of massive proportions. Changed hearts and the restoration of traditional and stable families, combined with stricter law enforcement and a reversal of our revolving door justice system, could, over time, bring safety back to our streets.
Twentieth-century Americans have rejected the principles of freedom of their ancestors. Believing that the socialist welfare state would provide them with a “safety net” of governmental security, they traded the liberty bequeathed to them by their ancestors for the paternalistic state. Thus, they adopted all the things to which their ancestors had said No: income taxation, welfare, regulation, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, public schooling, and gun control.

A gun saved my life. It saved my life from someone else with a gun would wanted to do me harm. Attempted home invasion. So the 2nd amendment saved my life, while at the same time, took someone else's. With out our 2nd amendment rights, we would'nt have any rights at all.
we don,t need them rights cause a gun incident in britain is rare......the reason its rare is we don,t have everyone running about with guns......seriously don,t get how uz don,t grasp that fact.

I was taught at a very young age how to shoot, and to respect a gun or any weapon. The gun itself doesn't kill, it's the person using it. Sure, there are some people who should not own a fun, but there are people who shouldn't drive a car either. ...havent you ever seen the bumper sticker" my gun has killed less people then Ted Kennedy's car" ....
But, we the people have the right to protect our family and property. And wether its an invasion from a foreign country or a home invasion from a burglar, I will be really happy at that moment that I have my sig sauer with a laser pointer and tric sighting on it!
no matter what anyone says uz aren,t going to grasp the fact that the law to bear arms is causing 80-90% of murders in ur country,no guns then less killing....its not rocket science
seriously ur saying its cool cause we mite have a few glassings or whatever compared to people getting shot?soz americans but we have complete idiots over here 2.
