    Only the guns from dangerous ultra conservative extremists that accuse all liberals (many of whom are gun enthusiasts themselves) of wanting to take all the guns away from honest American citizens. Evidently from your post, people such as yourself!!

    If speech were more restricted and controlled, one life may be saved because people couldn’t lead others astray.
    If searches and seizures didn’t need warrants, we would be safer.
    If we could force people to confess, we could get more criminals off the street.
    If we controlled access to guns generally, fewer people would be hurt by guns.

    We willingly trade Safety for more Freedom with the other enumerated rights, but the 2nd amendment?: remove all rationality.

    I am a relatively moderate liberal, and I am for the law abiding citizens of the country owning hand guns, rifles, and shot guns. Did you hear that?

    However, I am not for even law abiding citizens owning high capacity magazine semi automatic assault types of purely military weapons. Those should be reserved for either police tactical squads, the National Guard (the original militia as mentioned in the true meaning of the second amendment to the US Constitution), or the US military (which is to protect both the citizens of the US and even its government, while being under the civilian control of those people and their government.

    Heck, I am willing to have special gun clubs with highly monitored and safe firing ranges where those that wish to fire such military style weaponry (up to and even including fully automatic machine guns) can go and blast away all they want (and can afford)!

    I know that you are now going to say, but if we take such weaponry away from ordinary citizens, then won’t only criminals have them?

    But that is exactly why we have highly trained and protected police tactical squads, backed up by the National Guard, which is in turn backed up by the most powerful military in the world. And if they can not deal with the criminal element, then what makes the NRA types even consider that ordinary un trained and relatively unprotected ordinary citizens can?

    A friend of mine who is no longer in the area took his son to a shooting event in Pennsylvania a while back. The featured weapons were Gatling Guns. A tractor towed a car across the field while enthusiasts cranked the arm and fired rounds into the hulk. I was jealous. When they came back and I asked how it was, they started cranking an invisible arm and with big smiles said, Great!.
    The smell of gunpowder, whether from guns or fireworks, reminds me of days with my grandfather and friends hunting or shooting at bottles.
    There are collectors, competitive shooters, and others who could be properly licensed and have gun storage/protection methods approved by law enforcement and, as I’ve stated in other posts, people who become “police auxiliary” (ie- a regulated militia), who could be be allowed the guns and equipment being banned.
    That said, if you own a Gatling Gun, you need to be licensed and how that gun is kept away from people who would use it for ill inspected. The same for M4s, Bushmasters, etc.
    Guns are, quite frankly, fun.
    Killing people is insane at best, and evil at worst.

    If you “have never seen or heard a liberal state he/she was in favor of guns”, you have not been hearing anything but perhaps faux gnus. Or, perhaps, your head is so far up your a$$ your ears are unable to hear anything in the real world.

    As an aside:
    Many years ago a friend of mine went to some kind of gun shoot in Kentucky or Tennessee and told me about a Toyota pickup with four gang mounted miniguns in the truck’s bed. People were paying to fire it (them?) just for fun. He wanted to fire it but couldn’t afford to do so.

    No one has proposed taking away guns. No one. Get real. There’s no reason to pay attention to people who don’t pay attention to reality.

    What is very telling is that Holbert is a conservative. I guess even he is getting sick of the NRA’s rhetoric.

    “I, too, love the smell of gunpowder in the morning. It reminds me of…..victory”

    Yeah, but if you’re being attacked by a mob of angry liberal zombies, you really need that napalm! Why don’t we have the right to bear napalm??

    “I have never seen or heard a liberal state he/she was in favor of guns.”

    Many, many posters on these boards are liberals that own rifles, pistols, shotguns, are hunters and have identified as such. I have a close friend who is a VERY LIBERAL progressive that likes target shooting and is a gun owner. Be careful of broad sweeping comments, they are often misguided.

    After four shots and reload what gun do you use? Revolvers have had 6 shots for over a Century and a half.

    What about protecting us from the government, ARs and AKs are the minimum you would need. I am not talking on one man against the world. Governments have attacked there populace throughout time. I government that fears its people is a good thing. When the people fear the government it is a bad thing.

    The problem is that guns laws have been taking a little and then taking a little more. There are those who want all collected.
