      I will not support an action that makes it hard to for future gun owners to purchase a gun. It seems that this action will definitly infringe on our constitutional rights and promote more gun violence than solutions to keep America safe.

    2. Forrest Ingram on January 16, 2013 at 3:57 PM said:

      This is Unconstitutional, thus unlawful and illegal to enforce. Anyone trying to enforce this are breaking the law and going against the Constitution.

    3. Daniel dorado on January 16, 2013 at 3:58 PM said:

      No to any ban no to limits no to doctors no to Obama care . The only thing that I would support is back ground checks for private sales .

    4. NO to background checks on private sales. It is private property and not the .gov’s business how I dispose of my own property.

      Hamm, They were careful to not “Remove” from us. These small bites plus the ones that need to be voted on are the very small steps to achieve the Goal they have wanted for some time especially with this person whom we no nothing about. So many clues to the origin and allegiance. Like I said I hope this 19th everyone gets off there Ass and show support. Although I like the idea of..let’s see, sounds like a “Peach” Adiós Bro~~ô¿ô~~

    6. What part of “shall not be infringed”does masterpig obongo not understand?Today in the U.S.S.A.there are over 20,000gun laws,begining in 1934,all of which are unconstitutional.I say to hell w/mandatory background checks!Noone “background checked”the kenyan muslim before he became our dictator!

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XQDzBK-Yxc – “Innocents Betrayed” – still works… But is it mere Internet Rumor that Hitlerie and Zero was both havin’ a Very Good Time with Themselves all throughout that viddy’s Midnight White House Screening a couple nights back…?

      Either way: There’s sure been a GIANT Sucking Sound all OVER the place since, oh, 1999 or so.

      Just sayin’. And that is all. 0{:-(o[

      We all need to step back and look at what happened in Conn. No one wants to be told that their littles were not coming home. For us to take away our freedoms is not the answer, we need the thorough background check on handguns,shotguns,high powered rifles,and ammo. These should not be ever overlooked by sales staffs at any sporting goods store, or independent gun store. If you don’t have any thing to hide it should be no problem. Our government needs to step back and let each state have control over it’s individual gun policies. Let each state act on it’s own.

    9. What part of “well regulated” is lost on everyone (Hanbo)? How can most of you not support even the most limited enforcment of EXISTING laws? Regarding those who want to refuse to report private sales, I ask why? If you do not own the weapon any more, it has no affect upon you and if the person buying is not a felon or psych case (neither of whom anyone thinks should own a weapon I presume) why would you object? The problem is that no one can take all of this puffing seriously (by those posting here) which makes many of you sound like fools.

    10. I have no problem with background checks when buying at a gun show or gun shop. I dont see how they could enforce a me to you sale.

    11. Former Aussie PM to Obama: I Went After Guns. You Can, Too.
      If there was any question that the ultimate goal of Obama, et al. is complete confiscation, this article in the NYTimes ended it.
      http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/17/opinion/australia-banned-assault-weapons-america-can-too.html?_r=0
      Background checks, mental health screenings, gunshow loopholes and magazine limits are just attempts to have chickens peck us to death.
      Support the Firearms Freedom Act in your state. (Before reading Mr. Howard’s article, I supported a VOLUNTARY ban on magazines holding more than 30 rounds. Now, I wouldn’t concede the time of day.)
