    I'm confused. Do they want them to be safe or do they want them to be gun-free zones? They can't have it both ways.

    I can't quite figure it out myself. I'm thinking that they really hate kids and wish to make the lush public parks a haven for marauding gangs.

    The anti gun groups just don't get it, Gun free zones are the hunting grounds for the scumbags and has been proven over and over again. Another comment heard often at local government meetings is; "it is your, the governement body, "responsibility to protect me". Not so.

    Where in the world do these people come up with their facts?! Some of what these sheeple were saying had me speechless with shock. The old guy at the end especially had me dumbfounded. If these are your neighbors then I truly feel for you OP.

    The anti-gun folks don't get it.

    Yup, and we won't change them IMO. Have you ever tried telling Napoleon he's not Napoleon?

    I have a new tact with them which is to not try to be nice about it anymore. They won't get it, but onlookers can learn and do.

    Making My Town Gun Free and Safe

    To the anti there is no such thing as a good guy with a gun or a responsible gun owner. To them you are a bigger danger than the gang banger or mugger.

    The sheep, sheep dogs, and wolves analogy hold here. The sheep see the sheep dog as a wolf.

    I watched just half of the township meeting because frankly after listening to these anti's get up one after the other I was fed up with their whiny "I can't understand why you won't rescind your decision..." TBT the anti's are damn lucky I wasn't the top dog of those county commissioners. I would have asked for a show of hands of the anti's and then had a deputy escort these riff raff OUT.

    To the lady who said people carrying guns in the parks were brandishing need to get out a DICTIONARY and READ THE DEFINITION for the word 'brandishing'.

    Finally to see 6 or 7 commissioners sitting together siding with the 2A is such a pleasant rarity I am near speechless. To the anti's that were at that meeting I have many words. Unfortunately because of the rules here I cannot relate those words. Suffice to say they would be in keeping with a typical WWII US Navy sailor drunk and disorderly and in a foul mood. I need a drink.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    This is the correct answer. To them, we are the enemy, and more dangerous than any criminal could ever be. We will never make sense to them since this is an irrational thought process.

    Make the town "Fire Free" and remove all fire extinguishers.

    The second speaker just doesn't get it either! She states Newtown and the gun violence that happened and states that they should make the parks "Gun Free" so the gun violence that occurred in Newtown would be prevented!!!! ?????? I thought Newtown violence was in a GUN FREE zone....I am sure I didn't miss anything. Prevent? These people are completely wrong.

    One board member got it right, "Criminals do not follow the law so Gun Free Zones don't work".
