    Thanks for the video link, but it still doesn't change the fact that they are going to come after them. Look at what's happening in NYC right now. They say pot, etc is a gateway drug. Well IMO this is a gateway law and I fully believe it is unconstitutional.

    I tried to load http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr...e-data-table-8 but I keep getting a page cannot be displayed error.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    Your irrationally unfounded, fear-and-loathing-based supposition is duly noted.

    Sure.... Look how it's worked on the ban of the importation of illicit drugs.

    Sure. The attitude the NRA has worked $o hard to achieve.

    DHS, in conjunction with port authorities, local police forces, and FBI/ATF may have a little something to say about the importation of illicit firearms into the US

    What's the magic number, again, that makes the juice worth the squeeze?

    It's not an attitude.... it's a fact. Regardless of your opinion or the NRA's.

    The money wasted on the enforcement of an unenforceable law, would be better spent on mental health care. With the ending result of more lives being saved.

    Cite your source. FBI does not conflate the terms "murder" and "suicide" as you are. The rate of murder/homicide of another person by firearm (67% of total murders/homicides) is as the FBI reports.

    Whose study of the US population and criminal tendencies produced such an auspicious outcome? Or is this just personal conjecture?

    You claimed limiting production not an import ban. You dispute my post, you look it up. I'm not you're stump thumper!

    The federal ban currently being considered includes an import ban.

    Reading the comments on this article is sickening. These are some of the most ignorant, sad-panda delusional people I've ever seen. They are truly contemplating a situation where they, using semi automatic rifles, will somehow defeat the US military. If there ever was another civil war, the rebels stand literally no chance. Sure, you can best a mugger, but legal weapons are useless against stealth bombers, tanks, missiles and drones. This fantasy has got to end before these morons act on it.

    As has been demonstrated elsewhere in this thread, only 8% of the time are firearms used to injure/kill assailants. A peashooter does enough to scare a coward into the next zip code. And you still have every right to keep and bear arms.

    If sources like WND - A Free Press for a Free People and others like it are a main source of your news, and not just occasionally viewed for their comedic value and/or to feel better about your own mental health compared to the writers and commentors.... there is a problem.

    Just as with the liberal publications, "facts" and "quotes" are often spun completely out of context, and done so in a way to sensationalize the publication to increase page views, which is equal to revenue. It's really easy to get a bunch of left or right wing lunatics onto one site or another and have them all feed off of each other's paranoia about what the opposing side is doing, but very little real information is being spread this way. You've got to be able to think for yourself and get away from the talking points of both sides. It's all nonsense generate just to fire people up. And while the hate-mongers of both sides believe Jesus agrees with whom they choose to hate, both are completely wrong and all are being duped by these force-fed lies. The real enemy is REAL tyranny, not each other. If you want to go after someone, go after the real fascists, the corporate and government collaborations that directly erode real freedom and generate real theft, real war and real genocide while the children of America spend all their time bickering about foolish garbage tossed at their feet by the corrupt media.

    Wake up. No one is going to steal your guns, and on the other side, even if they did, it wouldn't help. Criminals will always be criminals and until we have a representative government sponsored police force that actually has our best interests at heart, it is totally reasonable for people to want to defend themselves in lieu of having storm troopers descend at the drop of every stolen Rolex. We can't spend all of our time cowering from imaginary scenarios when the real world requires our full attention if we want to fix any of this.

    War is a growth industry, haven't you heard? Unfortunately, I genuinely believe there are many (though a small minority) in this nation who want a Fort Sumter event to occur so the real fireworks can start in "taking back their country". Publications like WND only exist to feed the worst irrational fears among us.

    Of course it does but that's not what you said originally. You stated that production could be controlled and that's just not so. While the US is a large consumer of gun and accessories, we're not the only ones. Look what Obama just did for Mexican drug cartels..... gave them guns, that was nice of him.

    I have; and reading the comments on the article previously linked makes me believe that the people making the comments definitely do glorify the possibility of warfare against the government, against knowledge and against their own God.

    I for one hope the government never abuses their power so much that the people have to rise up against it but have you ever considered the thought of foreign attackers on our soil and how shotguns just ain't gonna cut it. I hope that never happens either but nothing is impossible.

    So what about the woman in Texas I believe who fired six rounds at a criminal who had broken into her home. She hit him 5 of 6 times in the face and neck and he still kept coming.

    And if that's all you got out of the video maybe you should watch it again..

    Approximately 0% of gun related crimes involved neither a gun nor a criminal. We can't eliminate either, and thus we should try to limit their interaction. Law abiding citizens shouldn't be negatively impacted by the correct action.

    So only those who have experienced military combat may express an opinion concerning war? And you speak for all?

    As a potential solution I might propose much stricter background checks, closing all loopholes and then, at minimum, tripling the minimum penalty for all gun related crime, especially the unlawful sale, trade or gift, possession, etc of any firearm. Couple with better training and education for improved effect. This will not stop crazy people from hurting innocent people, but it might help reduce crimes where the criminal is trying to get away, rather than killing themselves. More effective than a van, 0% infringement on the rights of innocent law abiding citizens.

    I can hardly blame you for being upset that chickenhawks sold America a bill of goods, based on fear and ignorance, to justify 2 full-scale hot wars (well, maybe 1.25 since Afghanistan was left in the dust as of 3/19/03) which were unpaid for ..... and far too many Americans did not demand higher standards of proof of imminent threats at the time. You paid a price which was never truly necessary and I can respect that.
