    Yup. And he used the terror and confusion to his advantage. People were flocking to him for what they thought would be protection only to find out how wrong they were. He'd blast a bunch then move on to another part of the island. Diabolically brilliant on his part. He made it impossible to tell friend from foe.

    If only some others on that island had been carrying......

    It takes an admendment to remove our rights any treaty that conflicts with the Republic of the United States of America Constitution is null and void.

    True.... The whole vote thing is a bunch of balony if you ask me. But then, according to some folks, I live in fly over country and apparently have no oppinion, just my Bible and my guns. I'll keep both. Thank you very much.

    There was a person CCWing in the crowd at the Gifford shooting. He said he was afraid he would get shot if he pulled to shoot the maniac. That being said. At this point, all we can do is pray for the victims and family involved.

  6. I agree with most of the posts. I too wanted to post something so I am glad someone else did it. My heart goes out too to those people that have experienced their loss.. and I hope with all my heart I never have to take a life...but I will with no reserve if it comes down to me or them, or them taking an innocant life with no respect for that life.

    I thought about my CCP as an American Citizen and what is happening in the UN to get a treaty that would possibly take away our guns one day...and depending on the media about this story people will either say (the ones that don't understand gun ownershp and self defense) SEE!! WE NEED TO GET RID OF GUNS!!...but alot of us understand if there had been a couple of CCW people there this would never have gone on for an hour and a half... and probably not even close to as many people would have died.

    The problem with people who protest gun ownership is that they haven't been in attack situation or lost a loved one in an attack, or survived a home invasion. or been robbed by gunpoint, or been in a situation like Norway or Columbine.... in other words... and please excuse my southern NC vanicular "They just ain't felt it yet" and it really makes me mad that the public and the government at times when they just don't understand that. All I can say to them is times have changed...and be ready becuase your turn is probably coming.

    My daughter and my 2 grandchildren(6&8)moved in with me in December as she has been unable to find decent employment..I live in a small town..NEVER any crime when I grew up here. My screen door has been shot out by a BB gun from 16 -17 yr old gang members (little recruits)from the north of town...probably just for kicks, had a bicycle stolen out of the back yard last year and another attempt this year..and a drug addict ringing my doorbell that had been scaring the neighorhood for 3 nights and tapping on our windows at 2 AM. (he finally got caught and arrested). 4 home invasions last month in my part of the state of NC but the good news is Crooks 1..home defenders 3.

    So needless to say I am a proud mamber of the NRA, and a CCP holder and ready to protect my family. Just hope the media and the UN and Obama doesn't step on my rights to do so....and hope we all continue to research , read, contact or lawmakers when gun ownerships bills get presented to the state we live in or the nations lawmakers.

    Don't take it for granted becuase alot people want to take it away from us !!! And as the old saying goes..... "just sayin"

    All the politicians due is aid the criminal, another gun free zone = another free fire zone. My guns will not be surrendered peacefully to any criminal or those that aid them.

    Wow... I'm speechless after hearing that.
