A very slippery slope we're going down...
It's really more like a "cliff" than a slope. At some point, this country will hit the canyon floor, and that point will be when open rebellion
That will happen when the brain dead people wake from the dead, and realize that this current direction is leading the rest of us and them into a
Right now, the social media sites give them the illusion that they are free. It reminds me of the old Twilight Zone episode "To Serve Man:. For those
too young to remember or have seen it:

You mean just like the Civil war and the addition to Slavery??
right now americans are ADDICTED to GUNS, the same way we were ADDICTED to SLAVERY.
Does this sound familiar? You will NOT take our SLAVES!!! Same as "You will NOT take our GUNS."
When will everyone realize that guns are not right. Do you believe in Jesus or Buddha, etc? If so, would they carry guns or weapons?? Would they
fight and KILL for protection?? NO. Honestly Nobody life is worth more than another person's life. We are all equal. No matter how bad or messed
up, or criminal you are, we are all the same. No one deserves to die. Everyone needs help, and some need help more than others.
That person that tries to rob you. Perhaps they are poor and hungry and that's all they know (Go see the movie Les Miserables, and about forgiveness
with the criminal Jean Valjean). Perhaps they need whatever they stole from you, more than what you do. Perhaps you give it to them, and ask if
they need more.
Guns only begat more violence. All it takes is for someone with an anger problem to then feel that they can take another's life, and then they can
do it easily.
We as americans are addicted to POWER. Having a gun provides a false sense of POWER. Which means those who own guns are WEAK. You can't solve your
problems with words, or your hands, that you must take a weapon. WEAK. We as americans are FEARFUL. Why are you so scared of your fellow man, that
you need to own a killing machine? Do you need to own NUKES as well? for proection? At what point, do you stop being SCARED, and face the truth of
reality, and help your fellow human.
We all need help. We must all choose NOT to be SCARED. Be strong, without a weapon. Help those that transgress against you. Solve your problems
with your fellow man. Stop trying to be BETTER than anyone else. We are all the same.
Just like Slavery was WRONG. Gun ownership is wrong as well. Yes in the 1600's and 1700's and 1800's, slavery was OK, and so was guns. Because
we hadn't EVOLVED far enough consciously yet. Hopefully by now, in the year 2013, we will WAKE UP and expand our consciousness to know that slavery
is bad, as well as having an easy killling machine such as a gun is wrong. Not one life should be taken no matter how bad they are. enlighten one
another, and realize you are only as strong as your weakest link. Think about the homeless and the less fortunate than your self.
A good man with a fist may kill one or two before being tackled. A good man with a knife may cause a lot of blood but maybe only 2-3 people before he
gets tackled. however a good man with a gun can kill 20 people in a less than a minute. Does that seem right to you? What are you scared of? FACE
YOUR FEAR. head on.
When the POWER of LOVE, overcomes the love of power, the WORLD will know PEACE.
An Eye for an Eye, leaves everyone Blind.
You don't fight hatred with more hatred, you fight it with Love. You don't fight FIRE with FIRE, you fight it with WATER.
ponder on those thoughts.
