"Send lawyers, guns and money. The shit has hit the fan." - Warren Zevon
No one is trying to take all guns away.We're talking about assault rifles. Broken people can kill children but they can't kill them all within seconds when they can't have assault weapons.Since the sport of hunting has declined in American the gun makers, along with the cooperation of the NRA, have done a marvelous job of marketing and have tapped in to the "inner soldier" of many of our men. How? By "militarizing" the gun industry. It all has to do with MONEY and GREED. Hollywood and the video industry are just as bad at tapping into that same part of the male American psyche. Unfortunately, there are other young men with mental issues that are drawn to all of this. Furthermore, there is another unstable group of people that are emerging in our American society. Those are the "survivalist" that Glenn Beck, the NRA, along with FOX NEWS and other splinter so-called "Patriotic" groups have convinced them that Barack Obama will take their guns first and then their land! They need those assault rifles to fend off the US Government! Most are decent, law-abiding citizens that have been totally sucked in by evil people out to make a lot of MONEY off of them. They actually used to be "stable" but some are spending their retirements stocking up on flour, canned food, ammunition, and other survival items. And in four years, when Obama leaves office, they will be left with their guns, ammunition, canned foods, and flour that will probably be full of weevils.
According to the Brady folks Connecticut has the fifth most restrictive gun laws in the U.S. The gun control that is supposed to protect us from the next mass killer, including an "assault weapon" ban, is ALREADY IN EFFECT there.Gun control failed. Again."Those are the "survivalist" that Glenn Beck, the NRA, along with FOX NEWS and other splinter so-called "Patriotic" groups have convinced them that Barack Obama will take their guns first and then their land!"Uh. "Gun owners are paranoid" played pretty well pre-election. It may not be the most convincing argument right now.
Thanks you very nice.
