Indeed, passing new “fees” and “taxes” on weapons and ammunition would make them prohibitively pricey. Then, banning their sale within X number of miles of a school would put numerous gun dealers (pawn shops, gun shows) out of business. But that would only mean that the Black Market in weapons would thrive.

If “Great Leader” really wants to get rid of guns, he’d have to order their confiscation (he’d probably offer some sort of buy-back first) of all weapons. Would he do that? Sure he would, if he thought he’d get away with it.

I would imagine, however, that there are thousands upon thousands of people, like me, who would not answer the knock at the door, or would not willingly hand over our only means of self defense, and/or would not be silent — nor particularly peaceful (if push came to shove).

Like Heston, I would say (without bravado, but on principle) “from my cold, dead hands.”

I don’t believe people should be able to build bombs in their residences, Senator. What do you think about that? More to the point, what does your friend Mr. Ayers think about that?

Nice one! Why not ask it at his next rally and be investigated down to the chunks in your toilet for the rest of your life? /sarc off

Let’s not forget that Obama’s hero, Saul Alinsky, told his disciples that they should do everything they can to hide their true intentions. More and more, Obama reminds me of Castro. Castro did not reveal his Marxist side until after he had overthrown the government.

Is that a 240? All the tacti-cool crap makes it hard for me to tell.
