Bush tossed the constitution out on it's ear 9/12/01.

Good thing he's gone and it's all better. It's well past time to hold the "new" regime responsible for its own abuse.

I know you never said it wasn't Obama's fault, but when you continue to blame Bush for what Obama is doing, it helps create a cover for him.

Stupidst post ever.
If an outsider with a gun attacks me, and have a gun to defend me, and he kills me: is that not gun violence?
Or I kill him: is that not gun violence?

No more than any other type of self-defense.

On top of that: how retarded is the idea that having a gun protects you from some attacker? Obviously he will pull his gun first. And then you are standing hands up, and your gun is pointless.

Not retarded at all. You hear someone breaking in, you have time to draw first. If you are outside and they shoot you without warning, then your comment has merit but there are other situations where having a gun can save you.

The ridiculous meme that says something like: "Chicago has strict gun laws and they have lots of gun violence" completely ignores the fact that many if not all of the guns used in Chicago come from outside the city's jurisdiction. The same goes for NY, Washington DC, Miami, etc.

Then why don't the cities around them have the same level of gun violence? The problem with these cities - and the entire country if the politicians have their way - is that honest people do not have guns to defend themselves against people that illegally obtain them.

Your comment is the perfect example of "If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns."

I bought a gun and 1 box of bullets early November. I was planning on sending my family to the safety classes but all the classes require you to use around 50-100 bullets during the training. Bullets are almost impossible to come by now with the ban scare and the government buying all the bullets they can. This backhanded attempt to regulate guns by reducing the availability of bullets has made people less safe since people can no longer practice or train without using up their limited supplies.

Never thought I'd have trouble locating .38s but Walmart, Academy, the local San Antonio gun shops, and the online dealers I use have been sold out for a long while.

To me, the attempt to "take our guns" is just another attempt at making us dependent on our government for safety.
