My Family Fled Communism. Stop Pushing Soviet-Style Gun Control Here.

All this alarmism surrounding firearms in America lately is getting out of control.

I figure it’s time to offer a unique take on the issue–one that puts American gun rights and their continued need into perspective.

From the amateurish House sit-in to the full-on assault on AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, your assumptions about Democrats pursuing full disarmanent under the guise of “gun control” are correct.

They mean it.

    This is why they want our guns. Don’t give them up.

    • That is why.

        And this. FEMA camps anyone?

      Totalitarian regimes do not like armed civilians as a rule.

    Denying terrorists the right to buy arms is Soviet style gun regulations? Magic mushrooms anyone?

      Abridging the freedoms of everyone as not to offend the very demographic committing the attrocities in the first place is far worse than ‘Soviet Style’, you asshole.

      Too many hoplophobes have let it slip that they will not stop until we are like the PRC, where you can’t own so much as a slingshot, despite their denials to the contrary.

      No one believes a liar.

        I learned a new word today.
        Thank you!

    • How about this: instead of demonising people who legally purchase guns (as the law permits), law enforcement should actually target gun violence at its sources? Black youths and Islamist terrorists see laws as irrelevant to them yet – as recent experience has shown – are less likely to be held to account for the many incidences involving legal or illegal guns.

      If politicians were honest and sensible, THAT is where they would focus their attention, not on some outdoors-man or single woman working late shifts in a rough area of town.

        I have been saying that from the start with the Liberals’ Firearms Act. The laws already exist to throw the book at anyone committing a crime with a firearm of any kind, yet they are for the most part ignored. At the same time we have seen the most blatant abuse of basic civic rights by “law enforcement” who even break into homes to confiscate legal firearms from law-abiding citizens innocent of any real crime. Oh, and should those firearms not be stored according to the ridiculous regulations, you are prosecuted to the full extent.

        • Low-hanging fruit. It’s all for show. It makes the authorities seem like they are getting tough on crime.

      You’re pretty funny.
      Deny anyone but Hillary and Obama the right to protect themselves.

      It is just trying to make parties sound like regimes that are totalitarian when it is a conspiracy theory game because of course people that oppose other parties will demonize them to the point of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and so on. That is basically Godwin’s Law. Of course, there is a difference between revolutionary parties, democratic parties and oligarchic systems as well.

      Canada has never been massive pro-gun but I do support people owning guns.

      The question is how wide a spectrum should the system be? I think there should be limits based on people with mental issues, criminals, and certain former criminals that could be a danger. Of course, I am not a law maker so it would be difficult to be too in-depth but we do not have an equivalent of a second amendment here in Canada and thank goodness for that.

      I believe Canada needs a mental health strategy and a poverty-reduction strategy and Canada should be more balanced on rehabilitation and not just focus too much on mandatory minimums. This is a balanced approach which many of the minor parties support in Canada.

      • The problem is the willingness to uphold any law. Failure to do so creates many tiers of society and one law that can be upheld or ignored willy-nilly.
