Quoting Sarah Bare-ah♡:" Give it time."


But the government is being accused of trying to take everyone's guns NOW.



Why would they want to do that? How would the government benefit from taking all its citizens guns away? Anyone?

For what purpose?
And they already CAN overpower us.

Regardless of the fact that we have the worst neighborhoods, the guns that are floating around here are illegally possessed. The bad guys have guns and law abiding citizens cannot arm themselves against the people that have the guns illegally. There is something seriously wrong with that picture and if you can't see it, then God help you.

I do know what you mean. Point is, the people should have taken a stand on this a long time ago. Kids are getting killed left and right here and there's nothing we can do to protect them except pray for them.

That's exactly what it is. Taking away weapons so we can't rise up.
I will never trust the government or the media. Then again, I'm not American trash. In any case f**k them.

We'd be armed against the bad guys.

Quoting LeTs*StArT*a*RiOt!:" I dunno, why'd Hitler take away all of the German citizens' guns before he started going nuts and started ... [snip!] ... nuts and started the Holocaust and WW2? :roll: You act like a government trying something like this has never happened. "


No actually I'm somewhat familiar with that bit of history.
I suggest you dig a little deeper. Again, there's a bigger picture.
Hitler didn't try to take guns away from everyone, mostly just the Jewish population, which was commonly blamed as the cause of all that was wrong in Germany at the time. If the US government started saying that certain populations should be banned from owning guns, and that we should live and breed in a way that would make that population obsolete, then maybe it would be a little more evenly comparable.

"American trash?" :?
Where are you originally from, and how much better are things there?



If "taking away our rights" is what we need to rise up against, then ok. I like rights. I'd like the right to do whatever I want. But then, if we could all do whatever we wanted, it would be a little chaotic, no? So we have laws, and guidelines, and restrictions on things. They aren't perfect, but they're the best we can come up with. And if you don't like the way the government is being run, then at least you won't get killed for saying so. Maybe some people do, idk. But most don't. We can all agree on that, right?



I am not going to say that the US is perfect, Obama is perfect, or any of that. I just don't think it's all a bunch of evil henchmen who are trying to obliterate us all so they can have our...whatever it is y'all think they want.

Time will tell, I guess.
If I'm wrong in a few years and the gov't has officially made an attempt to take EVERYONE's guns away, then I'll gracefully bow and buy you an illegal one. That should be a piece of cake.

Aw, did I hit a sore spot in using the words American and Trash in the same sentence? Yes, American Trash would be people who believe absolutely everything the government and media talk about, as that is exactly how we are seen by other countries.



I am from here, sadly. Though that's not my fault as I didn't ask to be born into this shitty ass culture.



As for the chaos question - you are asking the wrong person as I do not identify with libertarians, liberals or conservatives.



No, I do not believe it would be chaotic. I believe the people are capable of taking care of the people just fine. No need for big government.

And YES, people DO get killed for speaking out against the government. Open your eyes, stop following blindly like a sheep.

Got names and info?



I never said I am 100% for everything the government does. I'm not a big fan of the idea of being able to imprison people for no reason. Sure, there are people held in prison just because they refuse to talk, or refuse to admit to whatever the government is accusing them of. My head isn't buried in the sand.



But what people are you referring to, and what makes you so informed about the subject? Curious.

Mmmmhmmm. Our government isn't as squeaky clean as they want people to think. Most people blindly follow them, I'm glad my eyes are open.

How....HOW can people just glaze over these pesky details? I don't get it.



Oblahblah is an impeachable, dishonest, self serving liar but to some, he can do no wrong, even with the truth staring them in the face.



It's scary, truthfully.
