    Why do so many peoples want to take away our gun rights

    These people are ill informed and do not understand that guns do not kill people because if that was the case then matches cause arson. They just do not understand.

      “There are some things the general public does not need to know and shouldn't. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets, and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows..”
      -Katherine Graham, owner of the Washington Post, to a class of CIA recruits in Langley, 1988-Nov

        “If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.”
        -Joseph Stalin, from “Reply to the discussion on the Political Reports of the Central Committee”, Dec. 7, 1927. Stalin, Works, Vol. 10, p. 378

          “False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils, except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm those only who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicide, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. They ought to be designated as laws not preventive but fearful of crimes, produced by the tumultuous impression of a few isolated facts, and not by thoughtful consideration of the inconveniences and advantages of a universal decree.”
          -Ceasare Beccaria, 18th century criminologist, in On Crimes and Punishments

            “Americans have the will to resist because you have weapons. If you don't have a gun, freedom of speech has no power.”

                  “At first glance, it may seem odd or even perverse to suggest that statutory controls on the private ownership of firearms are irrelevant to the problem of armed crime: yet that is precisely what the evidence shows. Armed crime and violent crime generally are products of ethnic and social factors unrelated to the availability of a particular type of weapon. The number of firearms required to satisfy the crime market is minute, and these are supplied no matter what controls are instituted. Controls have had serious effect on legitimate users of firearms, but there is no case, either in the history of this country (Britain) or in the experience of other countries in which controls can be shown to have restricted the flow of weapons to criminals, or in any way reduce crime.”
                  -Chief Inspector Colins Greenwood, West Yorkshire Constabulary, Police Review, Britain after six months of study of firearms control systems at Cambridge University

                    Ignorance, people have completely lost touch with their history. People don't even know where their food comes from anymore. THe bigger the cities get, the further people drift from the reality of the world. People are afraid of what they don't understand.

                        I have to say lack of education, and influence of propganda by extremely wealthy politicians who envision the days of total control over the people. The problem is that as long as people have a way to defend themselves, the power hungry control freak politicians can't just march in and take over because they might be hurt or killed off.

                        Think about this, centuries ago the slaves taken from Africa were captured by men who had superior weaponry (muskets and steel) compared to the weapons the natives had (wooden bows, spears, rocks). Had the natives had the same or better weaponry centuries ago, slavery would have changed or become non existant from what history has shown us today.

                        And knowing this, there are still people who believe they are better than everyone else and everyone should bow down to them like slaves or servants. Fortunate for us, the day I bow down to someone and call them master is the day that I will never see, for I believe in freedom, and defending that freedom at all cost for not only myself, my friends, and family, but everyone now and future generations.

                            I don't think any one wants to take away your rights, they want to take away your guns, and i think it is out of fear and ignorance. But that's just my opinion.

                              People truly believe that the american people are not responsible enough with weapons.

                                If a white guy shot 12 children there would be hell to pay, and rightfully so. Chicago saw 101 shot this weekend, 14 fatally. Why is there no outrage?...
