This is the board for you if you wish to discuss or explore conspiracies of any kind, historical or current.
What a load of cr*p. Lothur, where is your precedent? How many time do you hear about drive-by shootings? Lots of times? Sure. How many times do you hear about an armed citizen with a gun permit making a stand against people shooting at him or around him? Not so many, huh. Home protection? Sure, but an assault rifle is useless for that, a close quarters weapon has to be a pistol of course....unless you are trying to shoot someone who's fleeing.
It's all hyperbole and BS.
For the hard of thinking: Obama is not trying to take away your 2nd amendment rights, he's merely trying to ensure that people selling weapons and buying them are, in the case of a buyer, not considered a risk due to mental issues or a has previous instances of weapons violations. And as for sellers, to ensure that they are making legal sales i.e. by submitting the paperwork for checking the buyer.
It's common sense.....to those that do not have a political or racial agenda.
