    Ah yes, but what if they've served their country in Law Enforcement or in the Military? or even in the Paramedic services? that's serving your country.

    Most people consider Politicians liars because most people discover, especially us Brits with the Labour party, that they are liars.

    I remember when Tony Blair said he'd make buses cheaper and more effective... all he did was make buses more expencive and worse.
    And then proceeded Tax the ass off of everything and everyone.

    You can't even die without being taxed. Literally.

    We also have The 2nd Amend. to the US Constitution, that would keep these

    commies in check.

    If they wanted to use "markers" to keep tract of deadly object/thing.....let them put in on Cocaine, meth, criminals being released back into society.

    The last major Anti-Gun bill was passed by Bill Clinton. His party paid a

    very dear price for it, , to the point that the Democratic Party must switch from the RED standard to the BLUE standard !!

    Please, we're not in the cold war anymore mate. Don't call people commies just because they're left wing.

    I am considered liberal when it comes to most things but then I am also considered right wing when it comes to law and punishment.

    So does that make me a rightycommie?

    Over here we don't have too many issues regarding the media and guns... mainly because we're tough on Gun laws... against our own people anyway... when it comes to immigrants though the government says ''LETTEM ALL IN FRANKY!'' ''OPEN THE FLOOD GATES''!

    *cough* Back to my point.

    Erm... ah yes... I do think the media try to use scare tactics on people to keep their ratings up. Fox news do it, BBC News do it and so do SKY News. They all do it.

    A fine example of this was a recent ''Hurricane'' that we had. It was not a Hurricane and if it was it was not a very bad one. Ones in america are, by far, the worse of the breed.
    The media were all over that story and gradually it started to be over reacted to the point of people telling people to stay in their homes for safety.

    The media use the power they have over people, I mean... who wouldn't trust a smartly dressed bloke and woman sat at a posh table with keyboards attached to nothing... with a smile that shows just how evil they are for forcasting rain when I have to go out

    anyhow, I think I went slightly off topic with that rant but hopefully you'll get the general idea.

    Not in places that make it nearly impossible to legally obtain a liscense, like, oh, say, New York City.

    A little middle-aged lady who owns a convenience store was sitting in the office with the door locked one day when these thugs try to kick the office door in to get to the safe. They don't realize she's in there, and they kick a few times until she becomes afraid they'll manage to get in.

    So, this little lady hauls out the revolver that she keeps tethered to the front of her Bible (!) with a rubber band. ( Yes, it was weird to see the gun rubber-banded to the Bible, but...) She fully intends to use it on them if they get in, but then she decides to blow out the window of the office as a warning instead. Result: Thugs last seen departing store at extremely high rate of speed. Interesting to play that to the gun-haters and ask them to speculate what would have happened if she had been unarmed.

    They'll pry my guns out of my cold dead fingers, and I'll have one of 'em rigged with a wire.

    The left wing news media and their anti-gun propaganda are par for the course.

    Dear Rat patrol: remember: there are lies, damn Lies and then there are statistics, There are fibbers, and there are liars and then there are Politicions.

    To All: Just think what would the USA be Like to day if Lee Harvy Oswald, et al Used a pitch fork to Kill JFK, if Sirhan Sirhan Used a Pitch fork to Kill RFK, If James Earl Ray had used a pitch fork On MLK or if George wallace Gerald Ford Ronnie Regan had been assaulted with a pitch fork

    What would Sara Brady, Hand gun control Inc. et al be doing???

    Lots of good points here...It seems like the media is demonizing gun owners and guns in general. Did you guys know the biggest gun control act since 1930 was passed recently, with the APPROVAL of the NRA? Its an act which disarms many law enforcement officers and military / retired. It strips people of their right to buy weapons / bear arms if they have one of many loosely defined mental conditions like PTSD, which that designation is give to many cops or soldiers.

    The OP mentioned the mall shooting....The killer was taking anti depressants, which are known to increase suicidal thoughts and actions. The Virginia Tech shooter was perscribed anti depressants too. So were the Columbine kids. Most of these shootings involve mind altering SSRI Anti Depressants.....Read the inserts and warning labels on these drugs, they can actually be a factor in INCREASED suicides and violent behavior. Why don't we see campaigns and calls to ban or restrict these drugs to depressed people at risk or alternate treatments? Why is the use of these antidepressants sky rocketing?

    How about that church shooting which shortly followed the mall shooting? A Security Officer shot the gunman before he could kill more people, and the media was real quiet about that.

    Infact they hardly ever report lawful gun owners who use their weapons in self defense, or local news never does stories on gun owners who simply brandish their weapon and the bad guys run.

    Just remember this - one of the final steps or "nails in the coffin" of a society and of people going into bondage is complete disarmament of the people. Infact, disarming populations can also be the precursor to mass killings or roundups. Once they get all the guns they can have their way with us. Thats how it is/was throughout history. Thats how it was/is in Cambodia, Soviet Union, Pakistan, Mexico, Turkey, Germany etc.

    So watch the "gun control" laws closely...and remember that the basic right to self defense and to defend your human right to live is GOD GIVEN and no one has authority to take it away.

    I don't think guns are the problem.

    The problem is the lack of punishment and how fast that punishment is deployed. People don't fear killing people because they know they have a very good chance of living the rest of their lives with 3 hot meals a day, free room & board, And not having to work for a living.

    I believe if you kill someone with a gun or by any other method and you plead guilty in court or are found guilty by overwhelming DNA, video, and/or several witnesses, you should be toast within 24 hours. Just enough time to run the witnesses through a lie detector test. That my friend will instill fear in most men.
