    I hope it is withdrawn, but I doubt it will be. I continue to be disappointed by the President that I voted for and I'm not real optimistic here.

    Substitute the word 'air' for gun or firearm.
    Absolute idiocracy...

    Or better yet, health care.

    Vote against every new tax, fee, etc.
    Stop feeding the government.

    What baffles me is the whole premise that firearms "clearly endanger public safety." Really? Says who? And what have they been smokin'? The CDC just published a report to the contrary, not to mention the fact that historically the safest communities in this nation have had a lot of privately owned firearms. So how exactly do privately owned firearms exactly endanger public safety. Apparently just because "they" seem to think it is clear and obvious that they do.

    Perhaps a flood of emails to the President and our "representatives" is in order....

    And to think that party affiliation has anything to do with wanting to take away or infringe upon the peoples rights. Well the proof is in the pudding as they say.

    Kinky Friedman said it best when he said:

    poly = a bunch or more than one

    tics = blood sucking parasites

    Fits most of the folks in government in my book.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I believe a gun ban of that caliber could possibly cause a civil war. Who would be on the "governments side?"

    The military? The same people who swore to uphold the constitution, namely the second amendment which would be clearly violated.

    I wouldn't see that working out to well.

    Even after all Bush has done, this still surprises me. To tell us with one breath that terrorist still threaten American citizens and with the next say that we should all have to give up our guns? Wow. He's dumber than the media says he is.

    If guns endanger public safety, then the police and the Secret Service should take the lead in disarming.

    I believe people driving while talking on cell phones endangers public safety more than guns.

    Shouldn't 'reasonable regulations' be enacted by reasonable people? If so, then most politicians are taken out of the equation.

    If they ban guns, I'd see riots in the streets over night.

    Id say it is high time to call for the termination (firing) or resignation of the solicitor general.....
