    Americans have killed anybody.

    Don't try to infringe on the liberties of innocent Americans for the acts of a murderer.

    Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

      have never killed anyone driving drunk and yet we subject ourselves to blood alcohol limits, road blocks with check points and other limits that have nothing to do with us.  Yes the drunk drivers are a minority but we need everyone subject to the same rules - same thing goes for firearms, you want to own/operate a deadly object then everyone should live with the inconvenience of regulations in order to ameliorate the senseless carnage.

      The trend in people getting shot was dropping until the AWB expired (it bottomed out at about 90k people getting shot every year), but now it has risen to about 110k and the trend line is pretty clear - the number of shootings is rising at about 3,300 per year.  Data from Violence Policy Center - PDF.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
