    I can't believe this passed: http://www.newsday.com/news/politics/wi ... 4422.story

    It still boggles my mind that Americans can let one of thier rights be taken away so easily. Everything this country stands for is the complete opposite of what has happened in San Fran in this case. If they are so scared of firearms then they need to move to a european country where it is illegal to own one and the state makes all your decisions for you anyway.

    I don't understand why people in the PRK are so ready to disarm themselves and let the state gov walk all over their 2A rights.

    Any other thoughts?

    I would like to see how this plays out before vowing to never enter CA again.

    Working in the environment that I do, I get to see on a daily basis, just how f'd up this world is! I'm thankful that I live in the country that I do, and I have the rights and opportunities that I do. I can't believe that people would voluntarily just give up their rights.

    This is especially disturbing seeing this post the day before Veteran's Day. I have a large poster in my garage of my grandfather and his crew taken during WWII that reminds me on a DAILY BASIS that our forefathers fought and died to ensure we have the rights we do, and it pisses me off to see people in this country pissing all over this fact. In fact I'm getting quite pissed right now just typing this!

    You know this is a free country, which means people are allowed to think and feel how they want without fear of repression. It also means that if you don't like it, YOU'RE FREE TO LEAVE.

    i'm sure there's going to be a big line of criminals just itching to surrender their weapons. they'll be busy in april cause they also have to pay taxes on all their "earnings".

    hate to say it, but maybe we'll observe a spike in crime that will force prk residents to reconsider. maybe if the mayor gets carjacked he'll see that it's not the nice guys with guns who are trouble. it is criminals who pose danger.

    i think we should ban crime. oh wait a minute, we did. and convicted criminals aren't allowed to have guns right? but they do. so ban the guns?, or harsher punishment for criminals? my gun isn't hurting anyone that isn't hurting me.

    so when someone attacks me i'm supposed to call the police. why? because they have guns and authority to tell the attacker to stop. but i'm not allowed to thwart an attack, beause i'm just a lowly civilian. garbage.

    allegheny county has the highest number of ccw permits in the country, and we don't have much trouble. the drug dealers have even stopped carrying guns (atleast when they're actually dealing) because it's now a fedreal crime to use a gun during a drug deal. that's effective legislation.

    banning the ability to keep a gun in your house is unconstitutional. handgun, shotgun, machine gun (with class III of course) doesn't matter. amend. 1 says i have the right to free speech which is constantly upheld in this country. amend 2 says i have the right to bear arms, which is constantly under attack in this country. what's up with that?

    you've infiringed my right to life, liberty and happiness if i must live in fear of not being able to defend myself from the attack of someone who is allready a criminal and won't be handing over any guns in april.

    bans on guns are every bit as effective as bans on drugs and booze.

    The average citizen doesn't understand this like those of us that take our personal protection seriously. They actually belive that.

    "American citizens simply cannot count on the police to protect them from assault. Almost always, the only thing the police can do is show up after the fact and sort things out. Laws are not written to prevent crime; they are written to give society the means to punish the criminal after he has committed his misdeed. In short, when crunch time comes, you are on your own,"

    writes columnist Michael Bowers: http://www.starnewspapers.com/star/...col/06-col1.htm

    Paying taxes is like donating to an ethnic businessmans' association (paying protection to the Mafia) or asserting property rights to the NKVD. Yeah, you can say you don't owe it but they will murder your family and send the survivors off to the gulag. In the end you don't have enough money, power, or ammo to prevail over the army of cops, shysters, and bureaucrats they will send against you. Unfortunately, the Power structure has managed to usurp and traduce the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and there's nothing the peons can do about it. Waco and Ruby Ridge were demonstrations of what happens to those who refuse to kow-tow.

    Re: the SF gun ban- The Demokratik Peoples' Republik of Kalifornia has dysvolved into West New Jersey. They are groveling socialists, and I will experience no guilt over the Schadenfreude I feel when they are inundated by violence and affray. We must be ready to capitalize on the situation when it inevitably occurs and point out the failure to the rest of the country.

    Just want to point out that SF is banning handguns and not all firearms. While I disagree with this ban I wanted to point out it is not the total disarming of the law abiding population. A good shotgun is hard to beat for home defense.

    If I though the people of SF wanted my assistance, I'd take time from work to go there and fight against this (legaly), but this is by their own choice. Honestly, I hope the remaining gun owners in SF resist and force a showdown. Authorities will have to choose to either not enforce the law or take them by force. If it comes to force I will migrate to the front lines.

    Not to spout off like some sort of wanna-be tough guy, but if this came to my town they'd better call in an air strike because there will be heavy casualties if they think there walking up the driveway.

    All this ban does is say that people who are residents of San Francisco may not posses handguns within the city limits ... if you live outside of San Francisco you can own and posses a handgun within the city limits.


    pretty silly eh?

    If I am awakened by a bump in the night, I have my S-9 and a Surefire by the bed, and I get up on my hind legs and go downstairs to serve as a greeting comittee. A few nights ago, my girlfriend in England heard something, and just pulled the covers over her head and hoped it wasn't an intruder, and if so, hoped they would't come upstairs. The nearest constable is one village over, about 20 minutes if the cows aren't in the road. Police don't usually stop a crime in progress, they investigate after the crime, and if everything works, eventually that criminal is off the streets for a few months or years. If he comes into my house, he will be off the streets forever. If they take all my registered guns, then I will use the unregistered ones. or a compound bow (talk about a mess!!)
