In Columbus, Ohio a few members of the Mayors Against Illegals Guns group tried to rally support for universal background checks. But with dismal numbers they were soon drowned out by the numbers of pro gun supporters that showed up.
As a gun owner, Im a responsible person and I think its responsible to ask to have all gun owners have a background check, said Blanche Luczyk. Its just common sense. Any responsible person who is willing to take the ownership of a gun should be willing to have that background check.
Luczyk was one of a half dozen members of the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns who hosted the rally in the Arena District on Friday, according to 10tv.com.
But when Luczyk started her speech by telling the crowd that former President Ronald Reagan supported background checks, she was drowned out by shouts of Germany 1933″ and Hitler.
About 50 guns-rights supporters were on hand, some with rifles over their shoulders and others with handguns in hip holsters.
Charlie Roberts said he was there to make sure that gun rights advocates had their voices heard.
I want to show my support for the NRA, gun rights and the 2nd Amendment, said Roberts. We need to go after the criminals who commit crimes with guns and not the honest law abiding citizens. We dont need any new laws, just enforce the ones on the books. - See more at: http://gunsnfreedom.com/gun-control-rally-turns-into-gun-rights-rally-as-pro-gun-supporters-replace-the-speaker/#sthash.M3tbjvJK.dpuf

We need to go after the criminals who commit crimes with guns and not the honest law abiding citizens. We dont need any new laws, just enforce the ones on the books.
Good for the gun rights advocates that they showed up.
Actually, I’d be for taking about 20,000 gun laws OFF the books. Including the whole of the 1968 Gun Control Act, as well as the 1934 National Firearms Act.
This needs to happen a lot more.
Aw well as the portion of the 1986 McClure Volker Act that prohibited new machine guns in the hands of responsible gun owners.
“Actually, Id be for taking about 20,000 gun laws OFF the books. Including the whole of the 1968 Gun Control Act, as well as the 1934 National Firearms Act.’
Sounds good to me — all of those are laws trying to limit our 2nd Amendment rights.
The mayors will not make this mistake again. From now on their audiences will be selected from the host of liberals available.
Perhaps it's just semantics... but the words "infringed upon" as in "shall not be infringed upon" is important to the point of the discussion. Now, I have a question... I have read about this a ton of times but can't get my head wrapped arond this. In contract law... what is the difference between the word "will" and "shall"... I asked this a while ago at work when I was tasked with rewriting a technical specification on a construction project. I would love it if an English Major or really astute linguist could explain this to me.
Start by letting old geezers have all of the suppressors they want. Make the BATFE buy them for anyone older than 50 yr.
Here's my understanding:
"Will" implies a statement of intent or a prediction of future conduct. "Shall" implies a firm obligation. Example:
The director will attend the meeting in September. [At least that's what we think today, but hey, there's many a slip twixt the cup and the lip.]
The directior shall attend the meeting in September. [He is obligated to do so, and there will be consequences if he doesn't.]
