    Those same people hate it when I call their gun collecting a HOBBY or an OBSESSION. Because it really is just that. They don't intend to actually point them at their State Police, Sheriff, or someone in a military uniform. They fear and they fear some more. But what they fear is something in the realm of fantasy than fact.

    We live in a stable Democratic country. Guns are purely optional here. What if we lived in Syria? Or one of the African countries that is constantly having wars? Then a gun would likely be a necessity. If they really want to keep such amounts of firepower that they end up looking more like a Taliban Militant then perhaps they should be sent over to Afghanistan to join up with THEM. Because their obsession is doing nothing for OUR safety inside the United States.

    We have troops overseas fighting to keep US safe at home. To protect us from, let's use the term Terrorists for the conservative's sake. But what we have at home are terrorists in that they have the same amount of firepower, unrestrained and ending up killing innocents. Gun Owners by and large are very responsible and would welcome some commonsense regulations on their more fanatical fringe friends. It's time we answered their plea and stopped the rampaging Walmart style Black Friday buyers of Assault Rifles in their tracks. It's already too late for many of us. But it's time it was done.
