Good luck confiscating my weapons bitch. It won't happen as long as I breath.

I'd like to think you're right Rhino, but 1) When has the Constitution made a difference to the current crowd in D.C. And, 2) It was former Obama adviser and current Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel who said "You don't ever want a crisis to go to waste. It's an opportunity to do important things you'd otherwise avoid." Mr. Obama and his like-minded comrades will act ASAP to take advantage of this tragedy to advance their agenda.

Some things are worth fighting for. The 2nd amendment is one of them in my opinion. I just hope lots of others feel the way I do.

Bank robbers were the big news in prewar WWII America. The Liberals ignored the lack of jobs and government distrust. They blamed Machine Guns the "Chicago Typewriter" as the number one problem. In 1934 the Machine Gun was put under strick control.
The number of banks robbed in the U.S. is over 7,111 each year. The total numbers last year averaged 20 banks robbed ever day in the U.S. The Machine gun is never used in crimes. Never in history has there ever been as many banks robbed as we now have. The Machine Gun Law of 1934 cured what?

Unless he wants his nominations blocked, his tax increase shoved up his....(you get the picture) etc,etc, he would be well advised to not try to make an end run around the congress.

Even his democRAT allies on the hill are extremely jealous of their prerogatives.
