Second Amendment Nuts

The gun nuts always state the Second Amendment guarantees all the others. They could not be more wrong. Best I can tell, the gun nut's zealous pursuit of gun ownership yesterday denied 27 people all of their First Amendment Rights. To paraphrase Mr. Nader, the gun nuts have made our neighborhoods Unsafe at any Location. Fed up in my gun nut red state.

By the way, by the logic of the gun nuts, the country would be safer if everyone carried a gun. By that logic the world be safer if we armed everyone with nuclear weapons. I suppose then the NRA would be happy with a nuclear armed North Korea or Iran.

My deepest condolences to the families and friends of the shooting victims.

I have made this argument for years.

ALL GUNS off the street. Make ALL illegal in the streets.
and collectors can keep theirs, in their house, with a sign on the door saying there is one in that house

once ALL guns are off the street, then it is very easy to enact laws to ensure NO guns are in the street, with ZERO tolerance for any person found with a gun

ZERO TOLERANCE like they have for teenage drinking.

Megafines, MEGA sentences, and MEGA security to keep us safe

If no one is safe, or everyone dead, there is no 1st amendment as you state.

How many people will die for this.

100% anti-gun, if you look at my profile it state I am in the gun threads alot, but note-
it does not say 100% of the posts are ANTI-GUN ANTI-NRA

You know all those artists that appeared on the 12-12 conceert?

Mike has donated more personally, then every one of them put together.

(one artist who was not there as he was prior committment overseas, has probably donated as much, but as said Elton wasn't there).

I can understand though, that the NRA is scared sheet especially today.

Mayor Mike for Homeland Security Gun Czar.

No pol from either party would appoint him to anything but he could buy himself something like his Koch buddies.

I gave both Bloomberg and Christie a 100% rating during the devasting storm that hit me and others.

He is not a talking head. He doesn't talk about news. He makes it.

and the NRA is shitttting in its boots.

witness the silence from most pro-gun people the last day.

they have no idea whhat to say, as the NRA has not figured out what angle to play
