For those who think the govt is trying to take away your guns, an honest question

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you realize that since Obama has been in office gun sales have reached record highs? There's nothing wrong with that but let's just think about it. Has it ever occurred to you that there are those who are profiting by lying and exaggerating and keeping the lie alive? The NRA, gun manufacturers and sellers are reaping big profits by whipping up a frenzy that Obama is out to get your guns. Has it ever occurred to you that they are manipulating you for their own gain?

It is a surreal conversation.  Sometimes the people most passionate about their guns are the very ones who are the least equipped to have them because they lack the mental stability. It's a vicious cycle. 

Quoting LauraKW:

 You sound like a little kid who thinks their BB gun will kill a bear.  This is a surreal conversation.  Is it possible to shoot down a drone?  Perhaps an old propeller drone flying below 50 feet at only 100mph on a clear windless day.  But the fact that you feel shooting down any drone would be no different than skeet shooting with your trusty shotgun from less than the distance of a football field says that your mouth far outweighs your skills.  Your braggadocio that you can shoot down a supersonic missile is just sad.  Get along little sheepdog.

So is the NRA and its minions buying off politicians to introduce legislation to ban/curtail ownership of certain guns? Is Diane Fienstein and other Senators pushing an anti-gun agenda a bought agent of them?

Dianne Feinstein (D.-Calif.)
Sponsor of the much-vaunted assault-weapon ban of 1994-2004. Despite the ban’s having been found to have been misdirected and irrelevant to crime, Feinstein said she wished for a stronger law, one that would say, “Mr. and Mrs. America, turn [your firearms] all in.” Feinstein carried a handgun for her own protection in California.

Ted Kennedy (D.-Mass.)
A generation ago, this liberal lion sponsored legislation to ban and otherwise restrict handguns. He hasn’t let up a bit since.

Barbara Boxer (D.-Calif.)
Sponsor of bills to ban compact handguns, such as those commonly carried for protection, by making the legality of their manufacture in the U.S. contingent upon the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (BATFE) regulation permitting the same type of firearm to be imported. BATFE uses regulatory authority over firearms importation arbitrarily and, some say, illegally. Boxer hoped the BATFE would do the same with U.S.-made firearms.

Dick Durbin (D.-Ill.)
Minority whip is top anti-gun activist in his party’s Senate leadership and a reliable activist for anti-gun legislation in his own right.

Charles Schumer (D.-N.Y.)
Sponsor of legislation to ban firearms as “assault weapons,” to ban hunting, recreational, practice and defensive ammunition as “armor piercing,” and to impose a waiting period on handgun sales. The member of Congress who most seeks publicity for himself on gun-control issues.

Mike DeWine (R.-Ohio)
Consistently the only Republican to speak in favor of anti-2nd Amendment legislation on the Senate floor.
