And yes, I sure hope this isn't another 'school shooter' - but even if it isn't? It's achieved the same effect.
Hold onto your guns people - the end of the Second Amendment is near.

No its not. We have hunting season to regulate animal population and provide a means of food for some in remote places. Scientists will not allow
hunting season to perish.
Not to mention how much of our crippled economy rides on the wave of gun/ammo sales. If we lose that, unemployment will reach well into the high
In addition, think of all the helpless people that will create for whom are forced to live in cities under employeed with law enforcement and out
numbered by drug dealling gang bangers. If their hand guns are taken away, what is to stop those gang members from coming into their home when ever
they please (considering they will be the only one with an illegal gun)? There is no way, the residents will identify the gang member in a police
line up (that would be a death sentence). No educated person in their right mind would trade security for 100's of millions of people because of
less than 100 people.
Another group of people that this would severly effect are the ones who live near the borders. If you have illegal imigrants (whether drug cartel or
just desperate people wanting a better life) what would stop them from entering your home looking for food, water, and shelter if they know you do not
have a weapon to defend yourself and your family. Desperate people do desperate things. If a family is crossing teh desert and went 3 days without
food and water, they may do whatever they have to to get their kids water. Imagine if it was your mother's home that they say first. Would you want
her to have a gun, just in case? or be at their mercy and hope they don't take everything she has? Or if the drug cartel used her home for a hang
out until someone else came and picked up the drugs?
These are just a few of the circumstances that will put innocent people in harms way just because a few people are over reacting. We can not loose
our rights and freedoms just because of a handfull of people do evil acts.
Also, think about if our economy does collapse (which a lot of people agree that it will). If we lose our economy, social unrest will set in and the
soldiers will want to be with their family. If the dollar collapses, the military won't be able to pay the soldiers. Once our military is weak,
whats to say that we won't have a war at our door step. Everyone knows, that you attack at the weakest point. If we are weak, why wouldn't our
enemies bring the fight to our door step. This is a worse case scenerio but I would still prefer to have a way to defend myself if it ever comes too.
We are not invincible and for all you that live in your wooden box in a perfect little neighborhood, let me remind you that their are places in this
world and IN THIS COUNTRY were we need a gun. If you don't believe me, sell your lovely home in your nice quiet neighborhood, and move your family
to LA or detroit (just to name a few places everyone knows) and try to sleep soundly at night knowing that the police are only 5-10 minutes away.
Seriously, what could happen in 10 minutes?
