takingbackmyfirstamendmentrights:

Statement: “Guns = oppression”

Fiction: Guns in the hands of an informed populace trained in gun safety = oppression.

Fact: Guns in the hands of the government, not the citizens = oppression.

Super Fact: Guns in the hands of an informed populace trained in gun safety = power against an oppressive government.

So much hate, and anger on the anti gun side.  
It makes me very thankful that they hate guns.


If by “no jury” he means “every jury”, then yes, he is absolutely correct.

You are advocating for someone to assault someone with a gun.  You will get killed doing that.

This idiot lost me at “Military style assault rifle”Maybe he should learn a little something about what he’s spewing off about.Also, can you imagine somebody this ready to commit violence having a gun? Thank God he’s a gun control nut.

Nothing if he does it legally and safely.

In the right circumstance, he would be a hero.

You’re Aunt is a propaganda pimp and fear monger, OP.

I went to a gun store in Joppa a week ago just to browse, and there was a Baltimore PD cop in there buying a mounted light for his sidearm. We got to talking, and just for kicks I asked him how much black-market AKs are going for on the street in the city (Baltimore is known to have an international arms-trafficking issue). His response? “Honestly, for a full-auto AK smuggled in from Mexico you’re looking at around $550. It’s not a good situation for us to be in.” Let’s repeat that. Criminals can get fully-automatic assault rifles for cheaper than most civilians can get a legal firearm, and that in an area with some of the strictest gun control in all of North America, and in fact even the world.

Tell me again how banning things keeps them out of the hands of the bad guys.

I shit you not the average price of a black market handgun in my state(which requires all gun owners to be licensed and register their guns with the state) is between 100-200 dollars. 

Full auto UZI’s are like 400 bucks(compared to a legal registered FA UZI which is  easily a few grand)

Prohibition doesn’t work.

Here in Ft. Rucker AL. (surrounding area), we regularly get criminals with various handguns that they say they bought off a buddy for $50-$100. Banning guns, or even limiting their ownership, will never stop a person who wants to do bad from doing bad.

hey gun nuts

your precious second amendment is supposedly meant to protect us from what is happening in ferguson right now

yet it’s still happening

and yall are supporting the police state (at least the majority of you are from what i have seen on numerous articles and social networking)

im not saying hypocrite but…

Ferguson, MO. and the surrounding area has some pretty strict limitations on guns and is a heavily Liberal district. It is literally a gun control advocate’s dream. Only the police have guns (openly).

Now, that said, the people who DID protect themselves with guns, fared much better than the ones who didn’t. 

Examples:

So, I’m going to have to call BS on your faux outrage and call it what it is: You taking advantage of a bad situation to shamelessly push your politically driven narrative that, when scrutinized, doesn’t hold an ounce of water. 

Try again, OP. You can do better.

Because you value your life?

Whoever created this hasn’t been doing their research. Most (not all, but most) of the people who open carry rifles recently have been doing it to protest laws that prohibit them from open carrying handguns.I would counter with: “I don’t care if you don’t like guns. There are numerous legitimate reasons to be wary of them. But if you’re so cowardly, so paranoid, so scared of your own shadow that you can’t see a person exercising their civil rights without ridiculing them anonymously on the internet with a loaded meme, you are a dangerous, mentally ill person who needs to be locked up and heavily medicated.”Two can play at the emotionally filled, propaganda driven, narrative pushing BS game, OP.

No one ever said you shouldn’t be able to carry a gun. People are just saying that no one needs a collection of rifles. One gun will do the job. You don’t need ten or even two. — (via chanel-lipstick-stains)

Why? Why am I limited? Why can’t I have different rifles for different purposes?

Whoever said this can kiss my rump and re-read the Constitution. Common sense will tell you that “one size fits all” really means “One size fits none.”

Ferguson is like the gun control advocates wet dream, only the police have guns yet they aren’t satisfied. Maxlibertarios (via eltigrechico)

To those of you that are uncomfortable seeing someone carrying a weapon in public:

revengeofthemudbutt:

Just remember that for every person you see open carrying, you probably missed about five or six people that were concealed carrying.

Just food for thought.

Imagine, if something like gun control was applied to computers because a politician decided you don’t need to own a computer more powerful than what they defined as good enough for you, and the media was spreading fear about criminals having easy and unrestricted access to machines they could use to ruin peoples lives with over the internet.
Because only hackers and criminals need something more powerful than this, right?

A great perspective

This true speech

How would this stop a shooter executing people? Seems like you would put this on your back and run…

uh yeah this look stupid. ^^^ put it on your back and run is a good idea but why the hell when you go out in the hall with a shooter?! hes just going to come over to you and ether take the blanket off or shoot at you from the sides! makes no sense. however I think this could be better used during a tornado. where I live when there is a tornado warning we all go out in the hall and cover our heads with books. this might work better in such a situation. 

These blankets (as well as ducking down in the hallway) is to help protect children during bad weather. Not during a shooting. The blankets are designed to shield against flying glass and shrapnel, not bullets.

Whoever started this crap about them being for shootings is a dishonest prick.

Overnight - owners of Ferguson Market protect looted store with guns in hand.  -Victor CNN

One more reason we need guns for defense. When stuff like this happens, you need to be able to protect your property from those who try to take advantage of unrest.

2nd amendment at work, also eliminates the need for militarized police when citizens come to their own defense.


Just like in koreatown in the la riots

honestly why would you need anything more than a handgun or rifle? Like i get self-defense and hunting, but you do not need to take them to Target or the grocery store or Waffle House like you look like an idiot. it makes me mad. What are you gonna do. how often are you gonna need to shoot someone at a them park. WE NEED MORE GUN CONTROL 

I can’t even understand the argument you’re trying to make…

You can never understand the illogical ramblings of the emotionally driven. They let their fears outweigh their common sense.

Not to OP: While you may see a few guns being open carried, those are but a fraction of the guns actually being carried. Most people conceal carry and you never even know it.

Guns were a necessity. Imagine hunting your meal with a sword.

I think what they are describing are the Native Americans, or the pre-industrialized Japanese, or the tribes of Africa… it didn’t work out well for any of them.
