Default Gun Control - This Might Just Change your Mind

This commercial really got me thinking. Maybe we do all just need to turn in our guns.

That video couldn't be farther from the truth. Aside from driving over the speed limit on the highway once in a while I am a law abiding citizen. But if they make guns illegal I will be breaking that law. It is absolutly stupid to think making guns illegal will solve anything. All it will do is insure that the honest working citizens are left defensless against the criminals.

Millions of people are maimed and killed by knives each year. Should we outlaw steak knives? I am not a gun owner but firmly believe in our right to bear arms as much as I do our freedom of speech.

Good point! Should we ban backyard baby pools? More children drown in baby pools each year than people killed in gun accidents. ;?

Thank you for stating the obvious. The emoticons are cool to. If you want some more examples let me know.
I happened to be agreeing w/ you, and your link was new to me and scary,as is the one I posted. The "anger" con is all about the links, NOT your post.

Well step one is underway "assault rifles" or what the liberals deem assault rifles will be illegal once again come Jan 20th. If you want that AR-15 you better get it now and stock up on ammo!

Somehow I feel safer on a gun range than doing most of my everyday "chores".

I need another gun. I can feel it right to my core. Too bad my homestate has removed the most valueable options from me.

Perhaps a cityside street corner is my best 'value'?

A$$holes.

They are not "assault rifles"...we need to stop that term. It's not PC to call them assault rifles. The new term is "Homeland Defense Rifle".

Thank You for the education. I will now use this term and spread the word to others!
