Once again the president has used political theater as a substitute for meaningful action on the gun control issue.

        The hidden agenda is confiscation. The precursors are demonization of guns, vilification of gun owners, followed by registration, culminated by confiscation and imprisonment of resisters. Usually with the help of the useful idiots and sheep who go along with this plan as they say things like "This isn't so bad" or "it's no big deal" as the rights of the citizens are successively stripped of their freedom and rights as the overreaching, power-mad government gets more and more powerful.

        All the fees and charges will be borne by the law-abiding citizen who buys guns for protection, sport or investments? So what? Protection costs money if you choose guns as a mean of self-defense. Those who can spare cash to buy guns for sport and investments in this economy should consider themselves blessed. Just pay the fees! It's what law-abiding citizens for all kinds of licenses and priveleges anyway.

        What does the government not understand about the words - not be Infringed upon - ?

        To my understanding,it would mean any member of government who insist upon doing away with any part of the 2nd Amendment because of insistence that some citizens are breaking the law by their legal ownership of certain weapons. This,if done, would by rights, be breaking a law in itself.
        What is going to be allowed,for one group to break a law in order to supposedly stop others from breaking one.

        The country has lived with this Amendment since its beginning,why does it seem to be such a problem all of a sudden?

        No matter how much its tried to be proved that any citizen who owns what the government and people who have probably never even owned a gun,describes as a 'dangerous' weapon. It has been proven its only a possible danger if its in the wrong hands,such as a criminal,or a mentally sick person such as the person who killed the children in Ct. or the people who killed the innocent Mexican citizens with the guns which went over the border during Fast & Furious. With one of the last ending up killing one of our own U.S. Border Guards. Who was at a disadvantage himself with a lesser fire power to counter what he was up against.---

        Weapons can be totally removed but,your criminal class will still be able to get guns,and your criminally insane will find some way to do harm if they want to bad enough.
        It's a foolish idea from any, to want to remove any kind of protection the people may need to protect themselves .
        We have people coming across our borders everyday ,some from all over the world,we never really know what is coming across with them until its too late.
        To infringe on the peoples protection in case of a possible crisis, is not doing a favor but, could put a hindrance on the country's citizens in time of turmoil.
