Do you have a citation for this?

Fear

For seven years we've been hearing that Obama is taking away our guns, which has made the gun manufactures very rich. The fact is that nobody is going to take away our guns, so relax and enjoy your hobby, I am.

You need to wake up and smell the gun oil. "They", meaning the leftist politicians, and the media, are certainly going to take your guns if they are allowed to. You may have missed it, but a big step down the confiscation road was taken just last week when the President decided he could write laws that Congress has considered and not enacted. So much for representative government, eh?

Not to berate you, but if you honestly believe gun confiscation is not the end goal of all that is going on in the gun control front, you are a fool.

If you don't believe for partisan political reasons, you are an even bigger fool.

Relax, and you will have no hobby. Perhaps it's just a hobby with you, if so, you can always take up snowboarding or stamp collecting. For many of us, it's about freedom, responsibility, and rights.

IMO the time to stand down is when we are sure "they" aren't going to take them away and honestly that would be never. Be ever vigilant!

Has anyone realized why the democrats feel so strong about disarming the American citizen ? Their entire agenda is to remove guns from every law abiding citizen, why is that ? They are doing nothing to prevent crime or mass shootings.

I think those who feel most strongly about disarming private citizens do so because they don't like to hold people accountable for their actions and makes it easier to impose policies not supported by most of the people.

First off, that's a blanket stereotype of a party that represents a large swath of the American populace. Like all stereotypes, it's very inaccurate. While there are certainly some politicians in that party that feel that way, there are quite a few people who identify as Democrats who are very pro-RKBA.

Second, we don't do broad red/blue politics here. Please refrain from going down that route.

When she is president and the supreme court becomes what it is going to become.....well, I don't think the outcome of that needs to be detailed, of course our 2nd Amendment rights circling the drain will only be the tip of the iceberg. That is about as good as I can put it with out going into political parties.

It's pretty tricky to talk about gun rights and gun control without entering into a political discussion.
It is also pretty clear where certain candidates would go on gun control if they met light resistance.
