    there is no gun contro debate: America is governed by the Constitution; the right to bear arms/own guns is protected by the 2nd amendment; this right was not given so people could go hunting or enjoy sports, the right to bear arms was put into place to protect American citizens from a government that is out of control!

    Wrong: criminals get their guns off the streets, illegally, banning guns will not change this for criminals; and before you say well they get them by stealing…think about the corruption within our gov. and police stations, “fast and furious” as one example-if criminals want guns they will get them! If the criminal shoots first he better be a good shot; most criminals miss and hit bystanders while gun owners practice using a gun and are a good shot, the criminal shoots first-blow them away

    who ever said we want people to be forced to own a gun? if people are against owning guns for themselfs i can totally respect that, but i do not want people like you saying because you don’t want to be protected, i shouldn’t have the choice to protect myself. realize that dictatorships try to ban guns and control their public. what do you think is going to happen in the next 50 years… nothing good i can assure you of that.

    If O-Abomination wants to stop me from writing and I shove a pencil in his eye. He would blame the pencil. Why do these idiots not ban Cigarettes, and they supply drugs to our youth, Me being a witness to that atrocity in our society since I was a test subject for them back in the 70s-80s. Why have they not blamed all the chemicals that were pumped into the air in Utah and it’s chemical burning plants, now causing massive cases of cancers and rotting bones. Let’s turn to the real problems here.

    Thats exactly what I was getting at, no one is being forced to. The only thing I advocate is that the option to defend oneself is there.

    The Choice comes down to this. Do we want to be “SAFE”, or do we want to be FREE! It is said that under the rule of Kenghis Khan that a naked virgin laden with gold could travel unmolested the entire lengh of the silk road. The terror of the Khan’s mongol horde created “safety” in his empire.
    I have heard US Senators say that the primary purpose of our government is the safety of the people. No It Is Not, The Primary Purpose of Goverrnment is to Protect and Preserve the Rights of the People.

    Fine, what about those who don’t want to own a gun? Who have children or have moral objections or whatever. I’d hate to live in a society where everyone was armed with a gun. How many drunken fights would turn into fatal shootings if everyone was strapped up? It would be a society based on fear of criminals. Rather than positive action to stop it.

    Just because YOU feel like you should own a gun doesn’t mean everyone should be forced to.

    He could miss. A hell of a lot more good than not having one that’s for sure. The attitude of “if a criminal wants to get me I can’t really do anything” is just not one I share. If you don’t want to have a gun don’t own one. But “tis better to have and not need than need and not have.”

    I guarantee you that gun control gave less access to guns for criminals. Not zero access, but less. What good is having a gun if the criminal shoots first anyway?

    Fine, but you’d agree there’d be less mass shootings without the things that shoot, and that having things that shoot facilitates mass murder more than, for example, knives?

    No, and I never said it was. It’s more than one issue that dictates crime rates.

    Correlation does not imply causation…you cannot assume that because Maryland has greater gun laws it means they have more gun violence…research the other 20 factors that could be involved before assuming something just because it defends your theory…

    What kind of country do we live in when only the bad guy wins?It is no measure of health to be considered well adjusted in a over all sick society.If we as Americans don’t ever figure out that only corrupt and evil men are elected now in this nation then we are headed for a dark end.Men like Ron Paul are our only hope for a clean and bright future.

    *”Averting” the Fiscal Cliff — Or, patching the Titanic with bubble gum!*

    Rightly the Democrooks and Republicons knew that Nothing will change while the sheeple can still stuff themselves galore with Bic Macs and Fried Chicken… so, more taxation and no spending cuts will work AGAIN.
    —————————————————-

    But the moment the sheeple begin to starve, will be the instant all hell breaks loose… and sadly, the Criminals in DC — the non-producing leeches called Politicians — are blindly (or purposefully) working to this End!

    Mark my words — in a year or two, you’ll be fighting your neighbor for a loaf of bread…so sad, that you’ve allowed the Politicians to do that to US.

    Indeed it is, but the true Christians have known this for decades. America will fall to the Antichrist and people will be forced to accept the micro chip. Those who take it, are against God, as this new world order/government is spearheaded by the Antichrist. There is nothing anyone can do except be ready for the catching away, the rapture. It’s time to turn to God, before you’re lost in the end time tribulation that is about to come on man, headed by the Antichrist.

    Because you fail to understand that the thumbs up isn’t for the government requiring people to serve but the fact that their citizens are armed and the gun crime rate is low. That fact flys in the face of the argument that an armed society is an unsafe society, hence the thumbs up.

    Amazing. Did you know Atlas Shrugged was a children’s story and RP gets his history learnings from the KGB, WWII non interventionists and deranged conspiracy theorists like Lyndon Larouche? If you want people to vote for batshit you’ve got to hide the smell somehow. That’s why poor old Ron Paul is a three time Loser. Time to wheel him away to a nursing home. The dementia is setting it.

    Although I completely agree that more guns in the hands of civilians means more safety, I have no idea how so many RP supporters can “Like” a comment where government requires by law for people to go to boot camp for ~5 months and then to serve be “on reserve” for roughly 10 years… regardless if they get to keep the gun afterward or not.

    The best way to test Ron Paul as a true revolutionary is to see what would happen if he were elected and then had to deal with a group of men like the like Neo Cons.Would he really work with a new generation of guys along the lines of Paul Wolfowitz,Douglas Feith,Ari Fleischer,Richard Perle,Eliot Cohen,David Wurmser etc…or any of the new bread of them in the Obama administration?.If he dealt well with them,then he would be the greatest leader the nation has ever had.

    So would everyone, but gun control would do little to keep the firearms out of his hand and do a wonderful job of keeping it out of yours. Personally I would prefer to be armed and prepared to remain on an equal playing field then to hope some expensive legislation brings the criminals down to an unarmed level. I would love a society with no violence, no guns, no nuclear weapons, but it just will never exist. I think we need to realize that the individual is the first line of defense.

    What a sensible, intelligent, and thoughtful man. Someone like this can never be president. Ron Paul could have beat Obama (split the vote along more than just party lines) but Republicans seem to not want to win a presidency.

    Not to mention most people committing crimes with these guns are not using guns that are registered to them self’s. So the people who were law abiding people are now defenseless against our government (yes) it happens ask Russia and many other who have been around longer than 300 year. People with guns now would have a field day know people have nothing to protect their homes or their country. I hope people come to their sensus I would rather have a gun know their are people like that madman out

    Not to mention to defend our country. In places where you are able to take class to holster a gun on you murder rates are low. Some types of crimes in city’s with strictest gun control like my Baltimore it has the highest murder rate in the US many years not to mention D.C
    Its nice to say call the cops but while your being shot at its not going to help. If people all held guns then some one looking to do harm would need to think about if that guy has a gun. Gun safety is good, Disarming is not
