So I know this could get crazy but I am going to ask anyway.  What is everyones opinion on this movement to ban assault rifles and other types of firearms?

The 2nd amendment is there for a reason.  Leave people's rights to bear arms to protect themselves from a tyranical goverment alone.

All one has to do is research what happened to countries that had or has a gun ban.


Ever wonder why Japan did not invade US Soil in 1941?


"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." is a quote by Isoroku Yamamoto, of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II."


There are those naysayers that allege this was a hoax and never said, but...........

"This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead in the future!" - Adolph Hitler 1935-


We all know what followed.  13,000,000 people were slaughtered when they were unable to defend themselves.


Those who refuse to learn from history are bound to repeat it.

Why is it they always attack the good guys with guns, and will never put the bad guys with guns away?  Since when tid the bad guys ever obey the laws?

Love the quotes on here, but i agree the good are always the ones punished.  The bad guys are still going to get guns no matter what.  The school shooting is a tragedy, but stricter gun laws would not prevent this from happening.  We have enough guns laws as is in CA.

My .02: Anti-gun laws deprive law abiding citizens the ability to defend themselves or their families against criminals with guns.

Here is something to think about.  We have the rough equivlant (more adults, less children but the numbr killed is the same) ot Sandy Hook every 6 hours on our nations highways.  Do we hear a call for vehicle size limits, governors on top speed ( and I don't mean 100 mph which is the lower range for governed vehicles now), tougher DUI laws, and so forth. So we are talking 1200+ Sandy Hook equivlants a year, year in and year out, but figure there are dangers in driving.  As I posted elsewhere whe also have numerous people killed by being stabbed, beaten to death (here especially children), burned, etc.  The common thread is not the tool but the personality of the suspect (nutty as a fruitcake as I would put it) maybe we should consider how to deal with the common demoninator of all these incidents and work on that.  Remeber when China had 16 school children stabbed by a nut job?  Don't remember that from April 2012, guess it wasn't newsworthy my the major US media.

I was just this morning reading a letter stating that the 2nd amendment does not apply to individuals but the state. It was forwarded to me by Chief who wanted my thoughts so he could answer the thousand questions.  My response: The main phrase of the amendment reads "THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED".  Key word being PEOPLE Chief. If the amendment does not apply to individual citizens(people) then everywhere in the Constitution the word PEOPLE must be changed to the word STATE. Hence, no individual rights exist and the Constitutuion becomes extinct.

My question isn't whether or not our "rights" will be infringed. . . . .they will and I have no doubt about that.  My question comes about from the potential of required confiscation of our weapons.  WHO will be coming to OUR doors to collect those weapons?  When the "chief" of police, sheriff or director of the department orders you the officer to go amongst the crowd and confiscate those pesky illegal guns. . . .what are YOU going to do?  Do you go out your way to further risk your life to confiscate those weapons or do you turn in your badge?  In the end. . . . .will the gun owner have committed a crime if he shoots, and kills, the officer that came to confiscate their guns in violation of the Constitution?  If that happens, how long before the masses rise up and turn on YOU the police?  Who wins then?


I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I expect the same from them.

This question keeps cropping up. My opinion is it stems from paranoia. It just cannot happen. With almost 100 million gun owners thats one third of the population. What lawmaker in a sane mentality is going to criminalize one third of the population with the stroke of a pen? It would be political suicide, let alone the popular upheaval it would cause. Remember prohibition? It created the biggest crime wave in U.S. history. The war on drugs? Just because you make an object illegal does not mean it will magically disappear from the face of the earth.  I give our lawmakers enough credit to realize this. They may institute some smaller measures like the 94 ban or even banning some types of weapons from one date forward. It would be impossible to make it retroactive. Logistically and politically.

I just... Okay.  The constitution was written in a way that was to defy false interpretation.  It doesn't get more clear or concise.  There is no reason to "interpret" this document.  It says what it meant to say.  The right of the people shall not be infringed.  Doesn't get more crystal than that.


If we make guns illegal, only criminals will own them.  That, my friends, is a terrifying reality and one which the media should be focusing on instead of their never ending crusade to sensationalize and demonize an essential tool of freedom and self-preservation.

Go to Youtube and watch the video clip -You Can't Ban Evil. It's a black lady that was anti-2nd Amendment who changed her views. I can't speak from a black person's perspective but I agree with her on her key points. It's about protecting "We the People" from rouge goverment.

Thats true. But remember, thats what the Supreme Courts purpose is. The constitution gives us the right of free speech-with limitations as interpreted by the court. I was merely pointing out that some anti-gun groups have taken the position that the 2nd Amendment does not apply to individuals, just as a states rights issue and the National Guard as the militia. Which we intelligent individuals know is incorrect.

This is exactly what I wanted to see (discussion wise),  I must admit I am torn as to what I would do if we as officers are asked to coolect these weapons.  I am also torn as too what I would do if I am required to re-register my rifles plus pay $200 for each.  I also unserstand that if I do not comply I couldn't keep my job and possibly face jail time which is something I never thought I'd have to worry about.  So I hope the politicains really think this one through and I am not a paying member of the NRA for nothing.
