Correct. But it's irrelevant.

Not "irrelevant" by any means........Just by those who don't understand what it truly means.......

It is irrelevant because it is not the cause nor the consequence of the discussion.

At least to those who understand things.

Revolting against such legislation may be the right mindset, but why were there no such rallies/revolts for the signing of the NDAA indefinite detention provision? Which is about to be signed again, with an even worse provision....

People take their 2nd amendment rights very seriously, but the NDAA completely undermines the 5th & 14th amendment. The "Patriot" Act also undermines the validity of multiple amendments. Neither of these were barely contested on the level that these new gun bans are. & These gun bans aren't even blanket bans. The aforementioned laws completely circumvent 'guaranteed' Constitutional rights.

Your observations are correct; something serious should have been done to stop/repeal the Patriot Act and NDAA Bill and in my opinion Bush, Obama and all those with them should have been Impeached or by some means held accountable for the direct attack upon and violations of our Constitution and certainly the violations of their Oaths of Office.

Most Human Beings have become very lazy, self serving and don't give a sh-t about much until it impacts them up close and personal and where Fire Arms are concerned, attacks upon the 2nd Amendment and the rights to bear arms are plenty up close and personal.

You appear "Awake" so, I am going to suggest that you take an open minded look and consideration of the information put forth in this documentary. Unfortunately, it is broken into 40 parts but if you care enough, you will find all 40 pieces/clips for The Arrivals. I am a White Anglo Saxon American, as American as it gets and am not a Muslim but I was seriously disturbed and provoked by the information and facts these guys brought together.

Whatever the case here is Part 1 on YouTube, if you make it through Part 20, you will not stop there because the video really will open your eyes:


There is a a serious effort to repress this documentary, including by those who wish to deny the facts presented so, consider it a test to see all parts of The Arrivals and then decide for yourself.

You will regret having this position. I am 100% confident that you will absolutely regret that. Whether anyone here wants to admit it, or not, America IS the world police. Disarm us and all other nations will be sitting ducks.

I know it is very difficult for those that are stuck in one dimension of thinking to understand the complexity behind our being armed. I'm not at all concerned with changing your mind, nor educating you. I could care less about you, I am now in survival mode of me and mine.

I no longer believe that we can help those that don't help themselves. Nor can we have a logical discussion or debate. The world is brutal and it's about to be tilted into a new kind of brutality. A truth (or consequence) that has always prevailed throughout history is that the strong will survive.

Those that choose to rely and depend on others for their survival will be the first to go. Oh, and before you go all straw-man on me, I'll make this point: I am OBVIOUSLY not talking about those that cannot make the choice themselves to be dependent on others (you know, the ones the left like to hang their hats on), I am pointing at you and the rest that CHOOSE to be dependent and controlled. 'Choice' is funny, isn't it? I mean, we all have to live with the consequences of our choices.

Freedom isn't a privilege, it is independence. With our independence, we have the freedom to do and be all we can be, and the freedom to do and be nothing. With the freedom to succeed , comes the freedom to fail. We have too many failures in this nation. Time to give the failures of this nation the freedom to fail.

I'm so tired of the progressive crap about who I am and what I believe. I no longer give a damn. I'm a racist, bible-thumping, abortion hating, gun-toting redneck. It is what it is and I am what I am. Flame away.

I am seeing a revolt coming. and it will be in two years.

With Obama trying to ban guns and many state government falling one way or another.

The democrats don't need to worry about someone taking shots at them they will cut there own throats.

The democrat states will get weaker and the republican states stronger.

Detroit and Chicago have strict gun laws and look at there crime rates.
Turn around and look at the big cities in Texas and there lower crime rates and pro gun laws.

I am a EMT and have seen first hand what the strict gun laws in calif have done and how the state leads the nation in street gang and drug crimes.
Crime is bad in most of the big cities of Kalif but low in the rural areas where its shoot them, roll them in a rug or old blanket. and bury them in the hills. don' bother the cops, let them investigate crime and arrest the bad guys that do crimes against the anti gun democrats..
Very few crimes are stopped in the act by cops.
You can be a crime victim or stop crime
Lead poisoning stops crime.

Thousands do not represent hundreds of millions. I really wish people would stop being deceitful in an effort to make it look as though a small fraction of people are an army.

I could say that 47 states agree that fish tacos are delicious and be just as accurate as whoever is responsible for the title of this thread. The truth of the matter is the majority of America supports Obamas gun control measures.

Not trying to be facetious here, but if they take something away from you, then that is less liberty. If they take away my means of self defense, it's not going to make me less macho, it's going to make me less able to defend myself, and frankly, to defend you as well, if it comes down to it. We have an inherent responsibility to defend our republic, and a right to defend our lives. How will we accomplish either weilding shovels and pitchforks when the threat to those concepts are armed with 'guns'?
No I'm not the police, and no I'm not a soldier, but I still have the right to defend myself in the half hour it takes the police to arrive while Joe MethHead is kicking in my door. It's a basic human right to defend your life, and it's not the police's job to defend it for me uness I woke up in a Socialist Utopia this morning and just didn't realize it.

Tyranny is exactly what this is about.

If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpation's of the national rulers may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual State. In a single State, if the persons intrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair. The people, without exaggeration, may be said to be entirely the masters of their own fate. Power being almost always the rival of power, the general government will at all times stand ready to check the usurpation's of the state governments, and these will have the same disposition towards the general government. The people by throwing themselves into either scale, will infallibly make it preponderate. If their rights are invaded by either, they can make use of the other as the instrument of redress. How wise will it be in them by cherishing the union to preserve to themselves an advantage which can never be too highly prized. The Federalist Papers : No. 28, Hamilton


One cannot "take back" without being armed. People see this for what it is. A power grab, by "executive" decision or actions, or whatever other word you want to place after it.

Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun. ~ Mao


40 million Chinese couldn't defend themselves against the Cultural Revolution. They just died.

No irony there.

Your liberty ends where mine starts. By removing guns from people, all the people have the same liberty. Do not tell me it is to protect yourself. Protect yourself against who or what?

If people feel so much the urge to shoot at anything that moves in their garden, it is because they expect anyone or anything out there to be armed as well. If the burglar who's attempting at your house feels so much the need to shoot at you, it is because they expect you to shoot at them too.

It is like in the cold war with the nukes. It is a balance of fears. How negative is this?

So you bluntly dare to declare that people in the US do not accept their government's decisions, nor rules for the matter. You don't want "executive" decisions.

So why the hell do you still elect anyone to the head of your country?

So why do you need any rules at all???

So why do you defend your laws then???

You are just so contradicting everything.

Same with the (so awfully insufficient) health care, or Obamacare as it was nicknamed.

It is not about protecting your "rights". No. It is about evolving. It is about accepting that times change, that people change, and that laws can change. Even if it has been deemed "unalienable". Intelligence is about admitting that what was yesterday, may not sill be today. That is true even for truth itself.

The 2nd amendment has lived. It is outdated. It is unnecessary. It is time to amend it. If things were to never change, you wouldn't have a 2nd amendment in the first place.

Please revolt. I beg you guys. Just do it so it can be dealt with once and for all. Please revolt.

PLEASE.

I am soooo begging you to revolt.


I believe ANNED is referring to the progressives that will be revolting. I don't see the liberty-slinging-gun-toting nuts letting go of their weapons anytime soon. Therefore, I believe the line will be drawn in the sand and it will be the left progressives that are revolting.

ANNED brought up the weakening of the democratic states, while the republican states will continue to grow stronger, Therefore, the gun-wielding states won't have to revolt; as they only have to simply stand their ground.

So, you must be referring to the anti-gunners when you are calling for a revolt...in this case, I may have to side with you. Revolt, please I'm soooo beggin you to revolt. (tic)

BTW, I believe it will be the anti-gun progressives revolting due to their realizing they were wrong and will be extremely angry about being lied to and led into poverty, famine, and slavery.

This explains his "two years" prediction.

Remember to be careful what you wish for, as you may just get it.

You completely missed the point of that image of the cycle.

You agreed with it, which is good, but you missed the point. Maybe try looking at it again and applying it to history and culture and the rise and fall of entire empires.

Interesting you brought up mutually assured destruction. That actually helps my argument.

What happened in the cold war? the world was on the brink of nuclear destruction, people were buying nuclear fallout shelters and stocking up but nothing happened. The two nations jointly decided that mutually assured destruction was not worth it so they gave it up.

Over 70% of gun deaths are gang related, you can't just overlook that fact because you CHOOSE to, facts don't work that way. If you want to bring up Lanza, sure I don't mind because I know the numbers of death by semi-auto assault rifles and hand guns are extremely low, less than 100 in fact.

Lastly, we don't care if other people see us as cowboys. We have a birth right to defend ourselves and our freedom and liberties, it is inherent, it is unalienable. YOU have that right as well and it is up to YOU how you choose to preserve those freedoms.

And please don't go around telling people how gun owners and second amendment advocates are violent people, I always preach about how the pen is mightier than the sword and of course, I act on that ideology.

You are not from America, thus your stance on the 2nd amendment is not valid in any way shape or form. I could not give a crap what a foreign troll has to say in this matter.

Yep.

No President should have so much power. The Constitution isn't being followed. Its being circumvented, with loopholes.

Its how things are done in this Country. MANY Countries hold elections.

Because humans are violent. Because people kill people. Because Governments kill people.

Take the time to read the Constitution. The Deceleration, hell, take a history lesson at your local collage.
