    Yay, more fear mongering from the NRA pushing people to buy more guns, which in turn means more money for the NRA. This is like a fundraiser for these guys.

    You have to admit it's a hell of a marketing ploy. I may rush out myself and buy another gun just in case my four guns won't get the job done. Just call me Rambo.

    @jessejaymes The strategy is sound. Everyone that wants a gun has one, so how do you increase sales? Convince those people that you can never have enough.

    I'm 22 and for reasons of protection I won two Glocks. But maybe we (women) are much more pragmatic and sensible. We know the need to keep guns away from criminals. The gun extremists they ..... well, they want to play cowboy. The NRA from what I hear was once a good group. But now they are solely a lobbying group for gun companies who's goal is to sell guns. The anti-gun regulation thing by the gun companies and NRA is only about selling guns to as many people as possible and not care who they go to.

    Could be but remember, our government (the banks) was fear mongering people to buy houses before the would be priced out of the market. Now we're being FORCED to comply with making the banks whole who committed fraud. The NRA's alleged "fear mongering" to get people to get on board is purely voluntary. Has our government done horrible things to human beings like putting them into camps, criminal medical experiments and massacres ? You'd have to be a fool to trust them.

    @mimi57 And I bet you're a glass half empty sort of person.

    If society breaks down can you; grow your own food, weave your own cloth, have the knowledge to diagnose illness and then have the medicinal plants to prescribe to cure said illness???

    Shall I go on?

    not just that. cops getting laid off jails over crowded inmates getting dumped back on the streets do to over crowding. we have police chiefs and sheriffs saying the same thing. when california cops are saying they cannot be everywhere at once telling folks to get their permits,it shows that what the nra guy saying is true.

    some would rather others die than allow them to protect themselves. then again they must not live in the real world and have never in a life time faced anything where their life was in their own hands.

    Sheep will always be sheep and wolves will always run in packs to insure their survival and herders like obama will always lead sheep to the slaughter.

    @marine1 And those parroting someone else will always invariably resort to calling someone else a sheep. Doom and Gloom the business that's been winning politics and religion for nigh on 3 millenia. The end of the world being prophecised by those with the almost eager desire that it actually comes to fruitition. Those who follow that herder aren't the real sheep? Come on now...

    Think about it: The Supreme Court Decision, Warren v. District of Columbia, 444 A.2d (D.C. Ap. 181) established that the Police HAVE NO DUTY to protect an Individual. Only "society as a whole". The Police have all sorts of weaponry to protect themselves against whatever they might face from a criminal element. Is the Individual ANY LESS VALUABLE than a Police Officer? Does not the Individual have a right to protect him/herself, especially when the Police Officer doesn't have a duty to protect him/her and his/her family? If the Police Officer is so apprehensive of being himself/herself victimized, being armed and wearing Level III Kevlar vests with Trauma Plates, should not the Individual also share similar concerns since they can't practically go around outfitted with Level III Kevlar vests with Trauma Plates?-not to mention their expense! The reasonable Individual then, in the final analysis, the Police having no duty to protect him/her, that the Individual is responsible for his/her own defense and his/her own family's and property's defense. To be armed in order to suitably prepare one's self against MOST sorts of threats that might appear out of nowhere to threaten the safety of the Individual and the safety of the individual's family, the Individual MUST be allowed access to Police style weapons. You cannot have it both ways. You CANNOT morally tell the Individual- "Sod off. We're not responsible for your and your family's life and safety, and we're not going to allow you the adequate means with which to protect yourself." You have to CHOOSE one or the other. If you want to be able to argue convincingly that the Individual needs to rely on the protection of the Police, then QUASH the Supreme Court Decision Warren v. District of Columbia and all other lower court decisions that led to it. And GOOD LUCK quashing a US Supreme Court Decision. Only THEY can do that.

    After reading the comments here I don't know who's the dumbest. You people or myself for putting up with this nonsense. Do you have to be a far right or far left extremists on EVERY single subject? Go back and read all the comments. It' either right wing THE END IS NEAR or it's left wing NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN YOU IDIOT. Once again it sis not either or and falls somewhere in the middle. If you have a gun, please know how to use it. If you don't want a gun that's your business but I guarantee you that if something does happen (and it eventually always does, ask the People of Sandy Hook or Katrina or Sandy or a thousand other situations) you can bet those with a gun are not sharing with those without a gun.

    I have an earthquake kit in case of disaster. That's called preparedness. In that kit is a gun and ammo. Doesn't mean I have dug a bunker and hung the confederate flag. I just don't get you right and left wingers. You attack and defend without exception everything you don't like and everything you do like. You want to legislate against those things you don't like and both sides do it. THIS IS AMERICA. If you want to be Pollyanna and la la your way through life and think you won't ever need a gun then don't get a gun. If you want to be Rambo and la la your way through life and think you can survive playing "Red Dawn" then build an armory. But stop telling others how to live their lives? What ever happened to live your own life and mind your own business. The NRA is selling guns. That's what they do. Their backers are the gun manufactures. You know this, I know this. If you don't want guns then write your elected representatives. If you do want guns, guess what? Write your representatives. It just seems like people really don't care about anything called freedom anymore. You just want to argue.

    @mtkopf Nope just having one of those rare moments of clarity. This country is so extreme on both sides that they can't even discuss anything anymore to a point of compromise. If you want to believe the NRA guy then go blow your life savings on more guns. If you don't believe then don't buy guns. It's really that simple. If you're anti gun work to get guns registered and background checks. That's the most any anti gun person can hope for. There will no repeal of the 2nd amendment and everyone knows it. If you're pro gun then get your ass off the computer and go shoot a goat or something if that floats your boat. I don't think people really care about freedom or issues anymore. I think they just want to bitch. About EVERYTHING

    @jessejaymes I agree with you, moderates are a dying breed. I think its partly bc of the extremists ridiculing anyone who doesn't agree with them.

    I have my guns, plenty of extra high capacity magazines, and I won't say exactly how much ammunition I have, but enough. One thing that LaPierre has right is that Obama is dangerous. Whatever happens, it is good to be prepared.

    My guns are as much to protect my family from out of control government as they are from bad guys.
    Let's not forget the American Revoulition, it started when the government came to take the guns away from the law abiding citizens. With well over 65 MILLION new guns purchased sense obama took office, I'm not ruling anything out...

    And- Remember when every second counts, the cops are just minutes away...or in my case 40 minutes away.

    All you had to do was listen to the State of the Union address last Tuesday and you can see the lack of leadership our country suffers. A country with little or no leadership is destined for failure. Our only hope is that the right decisions are made to oppose Barack Husssein Obama and his cronies. They will stoop to any low to get their agenda pushed thru.

    Inflation is starting to get some speed. Obama want's to keep moving his socialist policies through. We're not looking at armagedon, we are going to see some pretty scary stuff happen. Watch your ass!

    I believe it, with how much 0bama and CONgress has racked up in debt (especially since 2007 on), I see it as only a matter of time before these countries we owe money to (i.e. China) start calling it in on debt. Fortunately for me, I already have my firearms and plenty of ammo.

    This is the way the gun nuts see the world. Full of big bad scary things that only having a gun and carrying it around with you all the time will protect you from. They never really graduated from the security blanket stage that the rest of us did as toddlers. Imagine going through life thinking that everything was a threat waiting to happen. What an awful existence.

    Bet you Mubarak never thought the people would rise up and oust him....or the people would be in a civil war in Syria....or how about Israel being bombarded by missiles....

    In a world where there are people like terrorists and others like them....it is good to be prepared....

    Though you do have a point too....not to completely trust in those things but to trust in God first for your protection....the Bible says as much....

    There security blanket is their guns. They are smart enough to prepare for the worst. It might not happen but I'd rather have guns and not need them than not have guns but need them.
  • #66

    @Knightmare Of course Mubarak worried about being ousted. Look at the resent history of the region. Same goes for the people of Syria and the Israelis. I don't worry about things like that in Central Oregon. I'm much more worried about running into a deer driving at dusk, having a heart attack or getting cancer because those things are much more likely to happen than getting killed in a terrorist attack. And to tell the truth I don't worry too much about them either. I just try to be careful driving at night and behave sensibly (or at least my wife tries to make me).

    @acg The last study I saw on guns (and I'm too lazy to try to find it right now so the details may not be exact) showed that a gun is 42 times more likely to be used to kill or injure someone known to the gun owner than a bad guy. If this even remotely accurate then you would be better served to avoid guns than to have them close. In my life I have know 2 people who accidentally wounded themselves cleaning guns, went to high school with a girl whose father killed the rest of her family and shot her in the head (she was incredibly fortunate to be alive), and knew a guy who killed his family with a gun and then himself. I don't know anyone who shot an intruder or other bad guy. Your mileage may vary.

    @PNWest
    You need to check your statistics because that is incorrect. If you think guns are bad you should look up how many people are killed with knives, baseball bats and cars(drunk driving). They all have one thing in common. These items are all used in more murders than guns. Plus I know many people who would disagree with you including some police officers.

    Have you ever been in a situation such as the Rodney King street festival also known as the L.A.riots back in the early 90s.I have and what a feeling to know there were no police to call for help.Store owners protecting their businesses after the police advised they could not protect them.How much more death and destruction would there have been if citizens had not been armed?

    Minus the stockpile of guns and ammunition, the CDC seems to recommend being prepared for natural disasters and other emergencies. Why can't an individual take it upon them selves to prepare without being called a "nut"? It's called self-reliance.
