How cute. Another day watching "Jimmy" chase Donald around on this forum like a little puppy dog.

More than three million people in the United States protect themselves from assault, rape, robbery murder, because they use or have a firearm. It is factual that criminals will use any means or weapons to do their evil acts. Are we willing as a nation to deny three million people each year the ability to defend themselves and consequently allow the resulting assaults, rapes, robberies and murders to happen? The challenge is to protect the honest citizen’s right to bear arms and at the same time prevent criminals from acquiring them. Punitive high fees, intentional blanket restrictions and new complicated laws placed on honest citizens are worthless punitive acts. Criminals do not abide by society’s rules , criminals take advantage of such rules and laws.

That's not a "new video game"...it's a game created by one person and posted online. Claiming he speaks for "anti-gunners" is like me saying...uh, "gun nuts develop boy crush on witty local news forum agitator."

I'm not a gun fanatic, I don't even own a gun, but these politicians are all about making citizens slaves of government, and that is precisely why our founders in their infinite wisdom included the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Obviously, our so-called "leaders" no longer fear an armed citizenry, and punks like Murphy pandering, imparting the party line like a rubber stamp to further the Democratic Party's tyrannical agenda, which seeks to invade and control every aspect of your personal lives.

Hey that's an unfair comparison. A puppy would be housebroken by this point.

It has always come down to the relationship between a father and a son. It has always been on the Father's heart that His Word would be made flesh.

@Bill...that's far too complicated. How about we start with operation "Fast and Furious" and the illegal sale of thousands of weapons of all types by our federal government Department of Justice to known criminals? We know that one of those weapons was used to kill border patrol agent Brian Terry. How soon before these weapons end up in our cities, that is if they are not here already?

sorry, those records are sealed, right?
