  •  Not to worry (11+ / 0-)

    about the government ridding us of our freedom. And not to worry all that much about the terrorists taking our rights and liberties away. We're doing a good job of that right here with our own homegrown idiots that think they understand the meaning of the 2nd Amendment, and oddly enough, that's about the only reading they've done since their GED. I'm about sick of the idiots running the show and then the politicians that suck up to them in verbiage, at least. When my children and grandchildren are off to school or the mall or the grocery store or the restaurant, I'm much more concerned about some rednecked rube with daddy issues and a small ----- brain that will decide this is his day to mow down a few innocents just to make a statement. Again, the government is going to take our freedoms? No, I'm just afraid the government is going to give all sorts of leeway to those who will be most likely to do just that.

    •  Gun nuts are worse than terrorists (6+ / 0-)

      Anyone keeping a tally of how many people terrorists have killed compared to the number of Americans killed by gun nuts? It ain't even close.
      The NRA and groups like Open Carry Texas are a far greater threat to our lives than all the terrorist organizations on the planet combined! It's time for our law enforcement officials to start treating them as such.

      +++ The law is a weapon used to bludgeon us peasants into submission. It is not to be applied to the monied elite.
