  1. Erik Näslund says:

    I don’t belive that guns are the problem here. The problem is the way these guns are stored. A friend of mine is a hunter and own rifles. He keep said rifles in locked rifle cabinets and the key to the cabinet is stored in a safe. That way only he can get to the rifles. What i understand a fair amount of US citizens have their guns laying around the house. Within reach of, lets call them, degenerates.

    • Bob Russell says:

      Erik, that is what the liars in the lame stream media and the politicians want you to believe. My guns aren’t quite that salted away but they are secure. No one is going to walk in and pick up a loaded gun in my house nor in 99.9% of other houses. One is within reach at all times but my grandkids don’t have access to any gun without my close supervision, even the teenagers. Crimes aren’t committed by responsible people, they are committed by evil people the problem in our nation is as I explained to Per Sweden, evil in the liberal way of thinking. Liberals find excuses to ignore “common sense” anything because their agenda is tyranny not safety.

  2. Per - Sweden says:

    Your country is clearly one of the sickest in the world. Of course more guns result in more crimes, violence and murder, anyone who doesn´t understand that is an idiot. NRA are evil people. The rest of the world shakes their heads and laughs at USA.

    • Bob Russell says:

      Can you explain Switzerland where every household is REQUIRED to own firearms? While I agree that our nation is sick, guns aren’t the problem and the NRA members aren’t the evil ones. The same people who decry guns promote abortion, pornography, and refuse to enforce the laws we have now. Guns aren’t the problem but I agree evil is. The evil comes from liberalism not conservatives who value the Constitution and ALL of its points. Liberals don’t believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. They believe in them deciding who lives, how we live, and who deserves what they call happiness. Marxist wanna-be dictators and their evil Satanic followers are the problem. You apparently know very little about the USA.

      • KarenJ says:

        After reading your narrow focussed opinion, I doubt very much Per – Sweden WANTS to know more about YOUR USA.

        Hey, Per from Sweden, come over to Politicususa.com and read how reasonable and intelligent and FACTUAL the commenters are over there.

        • Bob Russell says:

          Narrow focused opinion? I point out the problem of evil in our nation that is not only accepted but pushed by government. Liberals can’t accept anything but their own jaded opinions and they aren’t based on facts. If you will look at the FACTS you will find how many more times guns are used for self defense than they are for evil.

      • craigri says:

        Uh, i can explain Switzerlan, but I doubt you will understand or approve of the TRUTH.

        Firstly, the gun you speak of is for the National Militia – BUT, the ammo (50 rounds) is LOCKED UP IN THE LOCAL ARMORY and not with the gun.

        Sounds like you bought a line of BS. They would NEVER allow the owning of dozens of assault weapons and buying of thousands of rounds without a question.

        I hope you learned something today – but somehow doubt it.

    • Vinny says:

      Clueless fool.

    • Al says:

      If “more guns result in more crimes” as you claim, please explain why Chicago and Washington DC, which have the stricktest anti-gun laws on the books, also have the highest gun crime rates?

      And in your own nation, you have among the highest per capita gun ownership in the developed world, yet you have less gun violence than in countries with fewer guns. How does that statistic support your claim?

    • Chuck says:

      We don’t answer to Sweden.

      Well maybe your bikini team. ;)

    • Gunnr says:

      Fool, why does the rest of the world want to come here? At least you are keeping your sorry ass in Sweden. Please help us evil terrible freedom loving AMERICAN patriots and tell everyone you can to just stay the fuck out of my country. Freedom comes at a price. You can have your loser European life. Go make some chocolate and go ski into a tree. To think of all the lives lost in the 40’s to keep freedoms in counties like yours makes me sick you ingrate. We shold have left you and your kind to be run by the powers of the time (Hitler)and just took care of keeping the west free and safe.

    • S Pendry says:

      We don’t give a sh_t what you think Per – Sweden. Why don’t your statement is ridiculous. You clearly don’t know the facts, or the research that correctly calls your statement bullshite. If the rest of the world shakes their heads and laughs at us, why do so many want to come here. Because it isn’t true. You pansy assed Europeans still have penis envy because we’ve had to come save your asses so many times because you don’t have the balls to stand up to anyone and fight your own battles. We saw what happend to Europe during the last two world wars, pathetic pansy ass pu_ _ ies.

  3. Patrice says:

    I am a proud member of the Church of the Brethren, which is on this list. If the NRA thinks they are shaming our church by publishing them on this list, they are very wrong. I, and most church members I know, are proud to be gun control advocates and members of a historical peace church. And I can guarantee you that we are not guarded by armed security.

    • Pat says:

      Nobody cares.

    • Chrisls says:

      I care, and agree with Patrice.

    • Bob Russell says:

      If you don’t want to own a gun don’t but don’t tell me I can’t. I am a veteran, a gun owner, and a very peaceful person. I have never shot anyone outside of war and have never denied anyone their God-given rights. Why not spend your time advocating for enforcing existing law instead of passing more laws that won’t be enforced. The problem in our nation is evil, not guns. Why are you not advocating the end of pornography, abortion on demand, and the
      ACLU defending criminals who should be in prison or put to death for their crimes. Your desire to make a difference is fine but it is misguided. Christians should be fighting evil not freedom but too many choose to ignore the real problem to make a splash. As a Christian I fight against the evil being pushed by our government and other liberal organizations.

      • Al says:

        AMEN, Brother! Christian churches have become bastions of paganized Christianity, substituting milk for meat. If today’s Christians had so much as an inkling of what TRUE Christians were like at the birth of our country, they’d hang their heads in shame.

        SHAME on the Godless churches who pass themselves off as Christian! Your shephards are wolves in sheeps’ clothing, plundering the flock. Where is thy salt, O Christian?

        • Chuck says:

          Not only that they support the muslim King Obama and Jew hating Chuck Hagle. Do I need to mention what happens to those who go against Israel in the end days?

      • Chuck says:

        The only thing you can say Bob, is “forgive them Father for they know not what they do.”

        They are a part of the world and see things as the world does.

  4. Ric McDonald says:

    From down under I am at a loss to understand why any law abiding, god fearing person would need a military assault rifle with a truck load of ammo an a magazine.

    Just why you folk want to fight this issue when thousands of your country men women and children are injured and dying around you I would have thought that the safety of your loved ones would come a long way before the need to own these kind of weapons.

    • Fred says:

      Ric, due to you being an imbecile, What does me, a law abiding citizen have to do with gun crime? I hav an SKS, and I go to the range to shoot it for recreation. When I get home I lock it in my safe. What you fail to realize is it is our right here in the US to do so. You say why? Why do people have cell phones when they can have a house phone. Do you know that there are double the deaths due to DUI’s in the US? So are they going to ban beer? How about you do a little research into your own country that has had a violent crime spike since guns were banned. That is your lesson for today, class dismissed.

      • Shawn Fennell says:

        Isn’t it true that increasing/maintaining tough drunk-driving regulation and strict enforcement of DUI offenses has reduced DUI deaths significantly over the last dozen years?

        If so, how is using DUI’s a good argument against adequate gun control?

        • Pat McCrotch says:

          I’m sure his point was that there are bigger fish to fry. Driving drunk isn’t a constitutional right. Neither is driving for that matter. You have the ability to regulate and license that all you want. You infringe on my rights when you mess with guns. It says shall not be infringed not shall not be infringed much.

      • db says:

        I’m glad that I don’t live i a country that seems to be as full of hatred as the US seems to be.

        Just the idea to begin an answer the opponent by calling him “imbecile”?
        Comforting to know that a person whith that kind of temper is fighting for his right to own an assaultwepon…

      • KarenJ says:

        This is how the right wing gun fanatics explain themselves to the world beyond our borders. The rest of are embarrassed for them, because they’re sociopathic enough to not feel shame, embarrassment, or empathy for the dead children, and they attack anyone who disagrees with them or criticizes them.

        • Al says:

          Stop standing on the graves of dead children to force your anti-Constitutional agenda down innocent people’s throats.

          Law abiders will not suffer anti-American Commie lawbreakers like you to impose YOUR will on us. You WILL obey our laws and conform to them, like it or not.

        • Chuck says:

          Your every post is an attack. Lots of kids die because people like you are afraid to pick up a gun and protect yourself and those around you and want to make everyone else just as impudent.

          Do your duty and get yourself a gun, take a class. Stop letting crimanals and mad men butcher our children.

          We need your help. Us gun owners can’t protect everyone.

    • Joe G says:

      Not my quote, but does attempt to answer at least part your question…

      Why the gun is civilization.

      Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.

      In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

      When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gangbanger, and a single gay guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

      There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we’d be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger’s potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat–it has no validity when most of a mugger’s potential marks are armed. People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.

      Then there’s the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser. People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don’t constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level. The gun is the only weapon that’s as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weightlifter. It simply wouldn’t work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn’t both lethal and easily employable.

      When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation…and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.

    • Norman says:

      Its a very simple issue really. We have this pesky document called a Constitution that protects our right to own a gun. We understand the rest of the world is more than willing to do whatever its leaders tells them to do but being cantankerous Americans we would rather abide by the Constitution. It protects our RIGHT to keep and bear arms. That is all you really need to know.

    • Brandel says:

      Mr. McDonald, I’m a law abiding citizen, I am 4 my 2nd amendment. I’ve saved my 3 children from a violent intruder. I’ve saved my own well-being from getting violently raped in my work parking garage. I was a single parent raising 3 children, I was looking out and wanting safety 4 my children. I did the responsible thing, I took gun classes, my children took gun SAFETY classes. I’ve been a gun owner since ’92, i’ve been a CCW now for 5yrs. Not you or anyone else in this whole world will ever make me change my mind. I WAS NOT ABOUT TO ALLOW MY CHILDREN AND MYSELF BECOME ANOTHER STATISTIC!! our lives be talked about on the 10:00pm news, then 4gotten except for my family and friends. I thank our Founding Fathers for giving me this right to protect me and my children, when the police authorities would have been to late to protect me and my family. I do absolutely agree that background checks should be more aggressive.I believe it should be mandatory that gun safety classes be taught to all members of the household, age appropriate.. been noted that even a 3 year old can pull a trigger. I believe if a child gets ahold of a gun, the parents and owner of gun, should be held accounted for it. I know you specified Assault weapons, in all reality, a box cutter was named as an Assault weapon. I would really like to know how you would feel (heaven forbid) if a member of your family, female for that matter, was about to be violently assaulted, and on the table closest to you laid a gun and your cell phone…which would you go for 1st? the cell phone to call 911, estimated arrival time, 15 mins, by then the horrid act has been acted out,or a gun held to the perpetrator, either shoot him or at least hold him until you can all the police, mean time, your female family member will never have to be violated and have to live the rest of her life really never being the same person ever again???? i would love to read your response to this.
      Thank You!!
      Sincerely,

      • Ric McDonald says:

        I understand your position Brandel but why would anyone need an AK47 with a 50 shot magazine.
        My understanding of the proposed legislation is to tighten the ownership of guns and restrict the sale of High powered automatic weapons.

        How does this impact on your right to bear arms.

        It is never the responsible citizen that goes berserk with a gun, but someone who has snapped for what ever reason, surly it is a good move to restrict the amount of damage these people can do by taking these guns designed to do the maximum damage in the least amount of time.
        Your right to bear arms comes from a time when a high powered gun was a flintlock mussel loader. I am sure your founding fathers would have phrased it differently if they knew what a gun could look like over 200 years later.

        • Texas Too says:

          Look man, it doesn’t matter if someone has a pistol or an AK47. A person with the intent to kill, WILL DO IT. Someone with a knife could’ve gone into Sandy Hook and caused as much damage, someone with the intent to cause harm, WILL DO IT. So piss off and don’t question why someone needs a 50 round AK47. Maybe they just want it, that is their right as an American.

        • Aya Tolla Youso says:

          Time to stop drinking the Kool-Aid. The AR-15 round is -anything but- “high powered”. A .30-30 lever action round is far more potent. But more importantly, automatic weapons have been de-facto illegal, requiring special licensing since 1934. That’s why I, for one, resist more control measures – because the lions’ share of proponents of them have no idea of what they speak. It’s fundamentally flawed to try to write, or even to support, rules over something which you have not even a close to accurate understanding.

        • Aya Tolla Youso says:

          Um… with regard to the founding fathers and their writing the 2nd Amendment when guns were muzzleloaders – we have interpreted other Amendments to keep up with the intent and with the technology. If you want to limit civilian ownership of guns to flintlocks, then, get off the web. The fathers couldn’t possibly have foreseen this medium. You get only a quill pen, ink, and some paper. Your letters must be delivered on horseback.

          Now, you may also stand in the public square and shout out your thoughts… or, nail said hand-written material to a pole or bulletin board. If you’re rich enough you may own a printing press, capable of one sheet only per mechanically-operated pressing, one side only, using type carved by hand from wood.

          Still want to limit constitutionally-protected rights to strictly those objects and practices that existed in 1787? Compare apples to apples, and maintain an equal perspective.

        • Brandel says:

          Not necessarily true,,
          We have the Superposed load/stacked charged, 1st mentioned in 1558 and 1662.
          British patented in 1682. Resource may be found on The Bulletproof Patriot website.
          The “Puckle Gun” invented in 1718, it was a 11 shot rotating cylinder.
          Belton Flintlock designed in 1777, the continental congress purchased 100 of these guns, but the only reason they didnt purchase more was for the fact they were too expensive, not for any other reason. if you do some more history research,, back in that era in the 1500’s, 1600’s and 1700’s, civilians had cannons, imagine that!! These were the 1st so-called assault weapons. So in all reality, the technology was available. In the above mentioned website and names of the guns (google the names) you will see the pictures of said guns.

      • KarenJ says:

        The reality of it, in real life, not your imaginary scenario, is this example: the victim of an abusive ex-husband who shot her pistol into the ceiling of her house to frighten away her assailant, not even aiming at him, was convicted of attempted murder and is now in prison, sentenced to 20 years.

        This was in a “Stand Your Ground” state, which should given her the benefit of the doubt.

        • Brandel says:

          That was totally wrong on her part by not SHOOTING him, because of the fact, you are taught in gun classes, which i was, if you are to pull your gun out, YOU ARE TO SHOOT THAT PERSON!!,,there is no calling someone’s bluff per say,,, there is no saying,, if you take another step, i’ll shoot or back up and turn around and go back out “MY” door or i’m gonna shoot!! are you serious, stand my ground??? she didnt stand her ground at all. there is consequences for not knowing and understanding the laws and your rights!! if you dont believe in guns, that is your right, but i’m not going to let anyone impose on my rights. I was given this right by GOD, and it is mine to fight for it and i will continue to fight for it. My scenario as you put it,,, it wasnt made up at all…. it happened and i used it as an example……when someone attacks you or someone you know,, i’m sure someday, you will consider how are you going to protect yourself and the ones close to you.

    • Bob Russell says:

      Ric, Asault rifles are now owned by civilians. You might look and find out what an “assault rifle” really is. What I own are semi automatic rifles. An “assault rifle” is one that has a selector switch for full auto fire. My guns may look the same but they aren’t the same. The 2nd Amendment was written for the protection of We the People from a tyrannical government not for hunting or target shooting. It would be nice if you actually knew what you are talking about instead of spouting crap that isn’t anywhere near factual.

    • Joe Shmoe says:

      It’s perfectly fine that you don’t understand. You aren’t required to understand. You aren’t American. We don’t seek your validation. We don’t seek validation from anyone outside this country. We don’t seek validation from the UN. This is America and these are American freedoms. We have no Bill of Needs. We have a Bill of Rights. We don’t base our rights on what we need. People don’t need to drive cars, have children, or eat cheeseburgers, yet automobile accidents, maternal mortality, and heart attacks each individually claim more victims per year than the weapons some seek to ban. More people are killed every year by lightning strikes, baseball bats, clubs and knives than by the weapons in question. The fact is, this isn’t about numbers. People are fixated on the image of the “evil black rifle” that has no use other than killing children. Most people on both sides of the argument are missing the point. I’ve heard it said that “If we can save the life of even a single child this is worth doing.” Many are thinking the same thing yet don’t have the personal integrity to verbalize it… Saving the lives of twenty, fifty, or even one hundred children is not worth sacrificing the fundamental rights of 300,000,000 American citizens. Pause for a second to allow that to sink in. Sure, it’s absolutely horrendous what their families have had to go through, but it’s still only a small speck on the page in a very thick history book. Children are not the most important thing in this world, even if they do carry the most influence in terms of societal emotional manipulation. More have died in the Revolutionary War alone than in every mass shooting in the history of this country. Many more have died protecting these rights than have died as a result of them… and this will continue. The right to keep and bear arms is a natural right. You get it at birth even if you are born a slave. The right existed long before our 2nd Amendment. Our 2nd Amendment simply guarantees that these preexisting rights “shall not be infringed”. There is no fine print. There are no exceptions. There are no time limitations. The language is extremely clear and concise. The language is absolute. Hundreds of years of people trying to interpret and subvert these 4 simple words is nothing short of insulting to the brilliance of the founders and the resolve of those who have and will continue to die fighting to ensure the continuance of liberty.

    • Candice says:

      So, you believe that the best way to protect your loved ones, is to give up your right and ability to choose how best to defend them? That makes absolutely no sense to me. Criminals have access to all types of weapons, including firearms, and do not have to go through legal means to purchase them…and the best way to defend against an armed criminal intent on harming you, is to be armed with equal or better force.

      When a criminal turns your home into a battle field, armed with one of these so called assault weapons, how are you going to defend yourself and your loved ones?

      Or, how about your gov’t decides to become tryannical and oppressive, and potentially enslave or mass murder everyone that disagrees with them? (its happened many times) how are you going to defend your liberties, property, posessions, and most importantly your loved ones?

      With Scissors? A pearing knife? A single action 6 shot revolver? or bolt action hunting rifle? Wont work very well if your goal is to stay alive, and keep your loved ones safe.

      Best solution, hands down, is to be armed with equal or better arms, than could or would be used against you.

      Sincerely,
      Single Mother of 3
      Ps, I’m not a gun junkie, i believe in protecting myself and my family or even maybe a woman getting violated by a rapist,,(a control junkie),,you really need to re-evaluate, put yourself in the victim’s situation, what would you truly do?

    When you have that many respected and prestigious orgs & individuals opposed to you, you must be doing something wrong.

    Guns are like vaccinations for crime but vaccines work the best when everyone participates. Mandatory vaccination in the past have virtually eradicated diseases. So too guns deter and eliminate crime but EVERYONE must take responsibility and do their duty and own and or carry for it to realise maximum effectiveness. Those of you who don’t take precautions to arm yourselves and have an effective plan for self defence and the defence of others are putting the rest of us and our children at risk and making us less safe. Don’t use places that have strict gun control as your examples look to those that got it right. Switzerland has a fully-automatic true “assault” weapons in almost every house….lowest crime rate in the WORLD!!! They also don’t have the fear and hang ups about guns that some do. So do your part have a defence plan and arm yourself. If you have fears just ask a friend that doesn’t. Most gun owners would be tickled to take you out your first time and teach you proper respect and safety for guns. Gun owners can’t do this alone we need the rest of you to help out. Who in the hell would want to prey on the weak if they knew everyone had a gun? Crime does not survive in a properly vaccinated society. Common sense solution by Chuck Reichenbach

    If you say Guns should not be regulated as there will always be guns, then it stands to reason you should also say abortion should be legal as there will always be abortion.

      That’s dumb argument. You’re comparing the apples to footballs. Yeah, you’re that way off. Abortion involves destroying a life that’s is not yet born, that’s willfully surrendered, offered no protection or safety and nor covered or protected by any laws. In contrast, there are laws against criminals getting guns. There are laws that make murder a crime. There are agency that protect people. There are rights established that allow an individual to protect himself from harm. So how are you going to draw parallisms of gun regulation to abortion? Moreover, explain to me how a regulated gun will keep a criminal from murdering? It’s not like they buy there guns from legit gun stores.
