I submit to you that what is going on here is the first assault on private gun ownership

They will take what ever they can get now and continue to chip away until all you can legally own to protect your family with is a baseball bat.

It's timer to mock the "Gun Control" Zombies!
"Gun Control" is a firm grip, steady breathing, accurate aim (developed by lots of practice), and a slow trigger pull.

The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
We need to learn from the Swiss and implement their "gun control measures" here in the United States right now, today!
These laws are the ones we should shove into the "2nd Amendment Haters" faces.

The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
Let's adopt THEIR LAWS !

Remember: Read Second Amendment: It’s Not About Hunting, IT'S ABOUT TYRANNY .

Gay marriage started in a similar fahion with just wanting to get rid of sosomy laws and be left alone to the present in our faces gay marriage and now on to the march that decriminalizes pedophilia. All of them are sick bastards.

California testing limits of gun-control rules in wake of Newtown shooting

By Claudia Cowan

Published January 13, 2013


California already has the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. Buying a handgun requires registration, a safety certificate, a 10-day waiting period and a rigorous background check. All direct person-to-person sales are banned and concealed-carry permits are rare.

But now, in the wake of the Newtown tragedy, lawmakers in the Golden State have launched into a new legislative frenzy to restrict firearms further. And they’re confident the measures will pass, given Democrats have a two-thirds “super majority” in both chambers — which means they have the power to pass legislation and get constitutional amendments on the ballot without a single Republican vote.

Political analysts say the political landscape puts California in the pole position to test gun-control limits.

“Almost any idea that anybody in this country has, as to further regulate and limit access to weapons or ammunition, is probably going to get passed in California,” said Democratic strategist and USC law professor Susan Estrich.

A fair number of libs at the lib boards admit it. They say they look at how few gun deaths there are in Britain. I point out the other types of death (higher numbers) although the murder rate is lower. Then I point out how Britain has higher rates of rape, robbery and burglary (the majority of burglary is live). I even asked a liberal Brit posting there what he thought of that. He said he was burglarized but that was ok, because he was "sleeping peacefully" upstairs.

The problem with their logic, other than being willing crime victims, is that they cannot point to a single instance of gun confiscation working out ok for the population. The Brits are a generation or two away from Islamic law. Likewise the Scandinavians. There can certainly be a camelot period where the guns are gone but the people have yet to be enslaved. That period always ends.
