Thread: OPPOSE "So-Called" Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence

  1. #11
    My response to POPVOX:
    I oppose Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence because...first of all, it is anything but common sense. The people opposing assault weapons do not actually know what one is. To most, if it looks evil, it is an assault weapon. The AR15 and similar weapons ARE NOT automatic, they are semi-automatic. Big difference. Confiscating semi-automatic pistols, rifles or shotguns is ludicrous. Of the millions of guns in private hands, ridiculously few have been used to commit crimes and not all of those by ordinary gun owners. The push to deprive American citizens of the right to keep and bear arms is against the Constitution and the **** Act of 1902, just to mention two examples.

    Further, it is an effort by the government to become Socialist/Communist which the American people WILL NOT stand for and NEVER give up the means to resist an oppressive government. If one would use "common sense" the cause of the Newtown shooting was caused by the boy's mother (a legal gun owner) failing to properly secure her weapons from her son because he had emotional problems. Had her weapons been secured, quite possibly she, her son and those precious children would have been alive today.

    OPPOSE "So-Called" Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence

    Opposed!

    I oppose Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence because the cause of the issue is not the gun. We fail to hold individuals responsible for their actions, we release criminal early, and we blame inanimate objects. To vilify guns and ban them from public possession merely punishes law abiding citizens, who's only crime is having a hobby.

    If you want meaningful change, enforce the current laws. Create harsher mandatory minimum sentences for violations, and do not allow early release. Remove the infringement to our rights that are gun free zones, allow law abusing citizens to take the necessary steps to protect themselves in the best means possible. Finally, stop the rhetoric and political zealotry, gun control is not about the gun, but about control. Otherwise high powers individuals would not have their security details armed. This is the definition of hypocrisy and only does a disservice to the American people!
    Guns.??? What Guns???

    Please be aware the Senators McCain, Levin, and Reid are teaming up to eliminate the filibuster rule to allow gun control measures to pass with only 50 votes instead of 60. The filibuster was designed to slow down ill advised legislation from being rushed through the Senate and prevent the tyranny of the majority and the enslavement of the minority. I expect this from Levin and Reid. McCain is a real piece of liberal crap and I'm sorry that I ever voted for him. Their offices, particularly McCain's, need to be flooded with emails and phone calls. McCain will probably vote against the gun control to fool Arizona voters, while guaranteeing its passage by changing the Senate rules.
