What folks seem to forget is the 2nd amendment wasn't about protecting the public from criminals or marauding Indians. It was about protecting the public from their own government. The folks who wrote the Constitution and the Bill of Rights had recently overthrown their own government because it was mistreating them. Do a lot of the same things our government is doing now.

And isn't it interesting that one of the things the crown did was attempt to disarm the populace. Just like our government is trying to do now.

Logic! It will kill you. Avoid it at all costs if you want to stay a member of the group in which the people rule. :lol:

Hitler disarmed the citizens- history is trying to repeat itself.

I felt a need to correct that...
Government office attracts the power-mad, yet it's people who just want to be left alone to live life on their own terms who are considered dangerous.

I used to have the bumper sticker, "When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns". I think that basically says it all.

They have a similar thread going at the Ruger site. I am Bogus Bill over there. Here is what I just wrote over there.
I think most of us know any new laws wont change anything. I believe President Trump knows it too and likely the left wing knows it but they are demanding it hoping it cuts down on the number of guns in circulation for their real root desire, disarming potential protesters for the day they control everything. Their hope is putting Trump in a spot. What do you think would happen if Trump simply said, "I aint going to do a darn thing to stop this because no new laws will have any effect?"
He would kiss any chance of being re elected, he knows it as well as the demonrats. If he was a dictator he would get by with that. It`s like my old lawyer once told me, "If a lion has you by the arm, you pet the lion with your other arm."

10% of the population is hopelessly socialists and wants to create a police state where they are the Gods.

Another 10% of the population actually understands the concept of the free market and the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment.

But 80% of the population sits on the sidelines and only pays enough attention to the headlines, which are largely generated by the liberals who own the media, so they really aren't all that informed, interested, or motivated, to do anything but something simple that seems like a good idea, or 'reasonable', or in worst-case, makes them feel good about themselves as they virtue-signal to their peers..... :roll:

How do we reach those people...?

If we don't reach them, this country will be like Venezuela and another decade.

Ok doc...well said....and I agree....but......at one time in the not-so-far-past about 50% of your 80% had half a brain.....with the influx of third world people we are now 40%/40% and losing fast. Very few smart people are trying to break down the fence to get here....only the tarts.....and the tarts are outbreeding us fast....especially the Muslims.

When the white anglos who are 50 years old and older die out we are done...no doubt.---6

I have nothing good to say about Hitler -- but he gets a bum rap on this one. The infamous German gun control law upon which our Gun Control Act was based was put in place by the Weimar Republic government that proceeded him. Hitler's opposition to it was one of the things that made him politically popular.

I didn't know he opposed the law (although it looks like he later took full advantage of it).

There is a good book put out by the JPFO group on the fact that the 1968 Gun Control act ('Omnibus Crime Control Act' I think was the official name) was almost a word-for-word translation of the NAZI weapons act.
