So who would be producing the guns for the black market then? The same companies that provide the military with their firearms? the government? the CIA? the military?
I also just watched a pretty funny photo-essay on a guy that made an AK47 out of his shovel, again, not kidding.

Best defense of gun rights actually occured on "All In The Family". Archie is arguing with his daughter Gloria about gun rights, which she is opposed to...
Yeah....that about sums it up. Does anyone think the KC LB who killed his girlfriend couldnt or wouldnt have killed her with his bare hands if he had not had a gun? And maybe he would have crashed or car or commited suicide by cop when he was caught? Speculate all you want...but guns arent responsible for crime, criminals are. Until you can tell me you can 100% pick out a violent criminal who has no history of violence, maybe you should concern yourself more with your and your families safety than trying to deprive me of my right to keep and bear arms.
BTW....had a good friend and former co-worker killed Friday night....shot to death in his own home. His kids werent there thank God. But he was very big into gun control. Somebody made him a target, and there was nothing he could do.

Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life
All I have to say to gun control advocates is be careful what you ask for, regardless of your opinions for or against guns in general it is the underlying constitutional freedoms you should be worried about protecting. Guns are no different than words and in fact the case can be made that words are more powerful than guns.
What are these mad ramblings about you say...........limiting the right to bare arms is no different than limited the right to free speech. People lose track of that, once you coincide your hard fought freedoms it is only a matter of time before more are regulated away. Ban AR-15's, AK's Uzi's etc.....next maybe all semi auto rifles and handguns.
What if we were banning certain verbal expressions instead of guns? What if we were no longer able to criticize the government or its policies? What if we were no long able to report certain news stories because of American interests? Maybe all words found to be insulating are now regulated out of every day society.
Limiting freedoms is a fix to the problem only from the point of view that you now have completely removed any other option or solution to the problem from the equation. I am never going to support any movement that limits or regulates a freedom. I just will not coincide my rights to any freedom that was fought for before me or handed down to me. The government should be worried more about the monopolization of the food, drug, media and energy markets in the US. The government should be worried about the farming of jobs to sweat shops to squeeze every nickel possible out of the bottom line. The government should be worried about balancing a budget that is completely out of control.
The government doesn't need to be worried about American freedoms or the restrictions of those freedoms, that is why we have the American government right now, the restriction of freedoms that were unfairly levied upon us and those who took up arms to fight for their freedoms.
