    Gun owners upset about Newtown

    Posting this around a few firearms forums. Curious to get reaction from the community on it.
    This video project was shot at the April 3rd rally here in Boston. We set out to capture the average gun owners reaction to Newtown. It is my new Facebook rebuttal.

    Hadn't heard the placebo analogy before... I'll have to keep that one in my front pocket.

    Of course Newtown was a horrific tragedy but it is just one of many America has went through..... And, sadly, more to come...... Why, as long as human beings inhabit the earth we will have evil and tragedies........

    The answer does not lie in so called common sense gun control.... Such things only work on law abiding citizens and "they" know that.......

    That part gave me chills, because it couldn't be more accurate or true.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    I have always respected the elders. I am proud and joyous to have been given time of grace to become one.

    Thanks for showing up, SolidState.

    Good video, the comment about castro reminds me of my Spanish teacher in college. Not knowing any better her family assisted in castro’s rise to power, once he assumed his dictatorship only then were his ties to communism revealed. After realizing their error they quickly fled Cuba.

    I really appreciate all the welcome and the thoughtful comments on the video. After being characterized as gun obsessed fanatics in national media I like that those interviewed do a good job of communicating that gun owners are ordinary citizens, they are equally saddened by these tragedies and they have a difference opinion when it comes to usefulness of gun laws.
