Not to promote my own thread too much,but I'd like it if it were a sticky too.

This information shouldn't be allowed to slide to the back of the forum.

Yes, exactly. Those assassinations combined with the riots throughout the nation of the '60s and the increase in firearms purchases all contributed to form justification for the GCA. Whether politicians thought they were doing good by passing or they understood its long-term potential we probably will never know.

But one thing is certain. We must not tolerate ANY more gun control laws. We give not one more inch. We have paid our taxes and our fees and waited our waiting periods and complied with demands on configurations and it has amounted to...nothing. We and society as a whole gain nothing by accepting any more constraints on us. Criminals gain a great deal.

Whose side is the government on? That of law-abiding citizens, or that of criminals?!

Thanks for that bkt.

You know,I'm inclined to suspect that the progressive socialist political movement knows exactly what they're doing with "gun control".I'd bet my left testicle its intentional,and that they know that by establishing for themselves a monopoly on the use of force,they can pretty much force this nation into whatever direction they wish,without fear of a repeat of 1776.

Like vultures to a fresh kill,they use tragedies to promote their agendas and feed off of the dead before the corpses have even cooled.



You ask who's side government is on?

What side could they possibly be on when they're nothing but criminals themselves, who violate the highest law of this land with impunity?

And finally,while we must necessarily go thru a period where we stop the momentum for new violations of our inalienable rights by these crooks,we must also come full circle and push for repeal of "laws" like this despicable,Nazi plagiarized GCA68.

personally i see the GCA of 1968 as an infringement on the 2nd admendment and it needs to be overturned and repealed. simply put, it's unconstitutional. any type of gun control law is unconstitutional, in the simple fact it restricts those who are law abiding and abide by the laws. all proposed bans, restrictions and gun control laws are knee jerk reactions after the fact of a violent episode. so when someone commits a heinous crime with a firearm, the reaction is to make another gun control law. hmmmm..... the gun control laws we had were not working apparently, so they want some more? gee that makes perfect sense.

i have said this before and will say it again, there needs to be a reform of criminal control, not gun control. the law abiding citizen isn't the problem, yet they are the ones the laws restrict. criminals don't play by the rules in the first place, so if we have more gun control laws, they are going to start playing by the rules and getting rid of their illegal firearms? yeah, when hell freezes over.

education is part of the answer. awareness and enlightenment are other factors that need to have emphasis placed on them. educate those who don't understand what price these gun control laws will cost us in regard to our other rights and freedoms. we need to make people aware of how losing the 2nd admendment can nullify any other rights and freedoms they ae able to excercise. enlighten them as to the dangers of our government having too much power to restrict our rights and freedoms.

Gun control proponents are caught in the cycle of what some define as insanity:

Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

They claimed the NFA34 would reduce violence.It didn't.What happened back then is that police technology enabled the ending of the motorized bandit.Criminals today can still get fully automatic weapons.just look at the firepower employed on the streets in the gangland drug wars during the crack cocaine epidemic.

Speaking of which,that epidemic and the resulting street violence still hold records that have not been broken today.It occurred between mid 80's and early to mid 90s:
Several decades after the passage of the GCA68,which was supposed to stop violence,right?

But because adopting Nazi "gun control" "laws" simply weren't enough,we got the Brady bill.

And out of the 4 most recent and publicized events of mass murder,the Virginia Tech incident,The Giffords shooting,The Batman Massacre,and this one- 3 out of four of the perpetrators got their guns directly in accordance with all these "laws".

The hoplophobes' answer?

More of the same "laws".

They're literally trying the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

I rest my case- they're insane.

I must say kudos to all that contributed to the publication of this thread!!!

I have just read the entire thread and I have just one question.

How many of us has given this to our elected leadership?

We all can sit in front of our PC's and put our thoughts into words leading up to the point of "preaching to the choir" but that is not going to get things done. It is not going to get any "Gun Control Law" repealed.

We have to put this information into the hands of our elected leadership. I know that I have sent similar information to my Congressman and Senator. They claim that they are listening. They claim that they are doing something about it. Unfortunately the only one that I have seen so far that openly stated that they are doing something is the Governor of Louisiana and I do not even live there!

Just some words for thought folks.

I agree with you.

We do need to make this an issue for congress.

I think it also needs more spotlight time in the public eye as well.

Talk about it with those you know.

Send this information to your congresscritters.

We should not tolerate Nazi plagiarized "gun control" in this nation.

Consider that our U. S. Government has been infiltrated by the America's enemy, the Muslim Brotherhood. Cannot believe my statement? Take the 10 Part (free) course at www.MuslimBrotherhoodInAmerica.com and then you will understand my statement.

Congress voted for the Patriot Act, ObamaCare, NDAA of 2012, restricting 1St Amendment Rights when the Secret Service is present & many other Acts. Congress does not represent American ideals, they are representing oppression of the people.

Congress is not afraid of letters, phone calls or votes and now, you could be committing a Felony if you protest.

Find the DVD documentary "Agenda - Grinding America Down" http://agendadocumentary.com/ and you will discover how American ideals have been destroyed in America. Believe me, this one will never be in the theaters as the Liberals/Progressives do not want you to know the truth.

Have you seen the movie "2016 Obama's America" yet? If not, you are missing significant facts about the directions of America & BHO. It's time for everyone to do their homework and learn the FACTS.

Understand that BHO and the U.N. are in the process of creating the "United States of ISLAM" in the middle east. It would be naive for anyone to believe that America will not be part of this plan.
