    I’m sure proud to be a Target! Thousands of innocent people every year killed are just collateral damage on the road to that freedom. What about their freedom.

    “A free people ought…to be armed”
    ― George Washington

    “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. [Misattributed]”
    ― Thomas Jefferson

    “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
    ― Jeff Cooper, Art Of The Rifle

    “The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.”
    ― Thomas Jefferson

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
    ― Thomas Jefferson, Complete Jefferson

    James Madison
    “Disarm the people- that is the best and most effective
    way to enslave them.”
    ― James Madison

    “Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it’s not an individual right or that it’s too much of a public safety hazard, don’t see the danger in the big picture. They’re courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don’t like.”
    ― Alan M. Dershowitz

    “The constitution shall never be construed…to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
    ― Alexander Hamilton

    “When the law disarms good guys, bad guys rejoice.”
    ― Ted Nugent

    And argument for gun control:
    Adolf Hitler
    “The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”
    ― Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

    The Second Amendment came about because of mass shooting of innocents by British Troops in the revolutionary war. If the British thought you were you were shot.

    I have stood the line and seen first had what an armed government does to un-armed civilians but that aspect never makes the news.

    “An armed man is a citizen. A disarmed man is a subject”
    “A free people ought to be armed.”
    – George Washington

    “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
    – Benjamin Franklin

    “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
    – Thomas Jefferson

    “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”
    – Thomas Jefferson

    “The gun has been called the great equalizer” (Reagan, many others)

    Lost your job? Equalize things out at work. Feel picked on? Equalize things out at school. Inconvenienced at the theater? Equalizer has you covered

    Since we’re such an inegalitarian society, it only makes sense people will pick up their best tool to even things back out. It’s logical and fair. The 2nd amendment and the NRA are hardly relevant targets, so to speak

    Funny how all the old, comfy suburbanites on here think guns are horrible. Maybe they should live in the ghetto sometime and tell that to the lady living by herself.
    I could supply thousands of these stories but here’s one:

    Dallas police said a woman shot at two people who kicked in the door to her house late Wednesday morning, killing one.

    The shooting occurred at about 11:30 a.m. in the 7200 block of Concordia Drive.

    Dallas police said the woman was home alone when she heard a noise — two men had kicked in the front door of her house.

    She confronted the two men as they reached the second-floor landing and shot at them several times, police said.

    The intruders ran out the front door, and one of the men collapsed from a gunshot wound, police said.

    He was transported to Methodist Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The other man is still on the run.

    Investigators said a gun recovered at the home indicates that at least one of the intruders was armed.

    Charles Brown, the father of the 22-year-old woman who fired the shots, said he is proud of his daughter.

    “Yeah, it is — it’s puffed out because I’m real proud of her because I taught her that,” he said. “I taught my girls that — to defend themselves when someone come to hurt them, and apparently she listened.”

    Brown said their home has been broken into once before.

    “I’m feeling real disgusted about this neighborhood at this moment, that a man can’t go to work and make an honest day’s living without some thug breaking into his house,” he said.

    Because his daughter works at night and sleeps during the day, he left the gun by her pillow, just like he does every day, Brown said.

    He said he will now teach his daughter how to forgive herself for taking a life.

    “I really don’t have a problem with what my baby done to them,” he said. “I just hate that she hesitated and didn’t get them both.”

    NBC 5’s Randy McIlwain contributed to this report.

    “Would more conceal carry stop these nuts. The Chief of Police of Detroit thinks so.”

    So does the retired police chief in Florida. You know, the one who shot a person who was texting in a movie theater: a capital offense.

    And in Baltimore, yet another recent victory for gun violence advocates.
    -
    Maybe a newer one in Hawaii, too.

    jack75287: Detroit has a police chief? Last I heard, they were under an appointed Gauleiter. (If you don’t understand German, the Third Empire office is something like the Soviet Commissar but with more power over civilians. There is no English translation because it is foreign to our concept of law).

    What is the big fascination with guns anyway ? Guns are like cigarettes, their only purpose for existing is to kill. I’ve never been in a situation where I wished I needed a gun. I know my comment won’t change anyone’s mind but remember that if you do point your gun at someone do it for the right reason. That your life is in imminent danger. Not because someone pissed you off & want to scare them & teach them a lesson.
