If this was that over site, the downvotes would be upvotes and the upvotes would be downvotes.

Isn't the point of the military to protect the people residing in the country where they're stationed from? If the government suddenly goes against the people, I think the military wouldn't second guess in swapping to the people's side.

Desperately attempts to curb guns America. Double production within a decade. There is no problem that cannot be made worse by a politician on a crusade.

The Obama presidency must be must have been a gun seller's wet dream come true. The fear-mongering over the gubmint taking away all the guns makes for some good advertising.

yes i've heard so many "buy them while they're still legal" ads. i think it could also be attributed to some other social changes, but i don't see any other correlation to obama

I am definitely interested to see how fast this talk of "martial law" stops once an old white man takes office again.

I remember how hard ammo was to get in 2012 / 13. People were saying "Farbango is gunna take our guns! Better hoard!" then bought as much ammo as they could to the point there was a shortage. Then those same people were saying "Fartbongo is taking all our bullits!".

Sadly, I am not making any of this up. This is exactly how these conversations went.

there was also a big homeland security purchase order around the same time. it would ordinarily have been a small blip but some shit news site picked like salon it up and spurred the frenzy which eventually became self-perpetuating.

Didn't the law expand to allow guns in national parks after he took office as well? IIRC it did (someone snuck it into a bill) and it's nice being able to carry in grizzly bear country!

Because of morons who think the 2nd amendment is 1 day away from being revoked.

Yep, any day now... been any day now for 7 years.

The real problem isn't getting a gun. These days it's getting the fucking ammo to put in it. You can't find bullets. Hoarders buy them in bulk to stock pile them and there's just not enough to go around. Not to mention every single government department (even the ones who don't even really have guns or need guns) seems to be buying billions and billions of them. I'm thinking to drive the cost up even higher and simply to keep them out of our stock piles.

I mean come on, you have to be naive if you don't think this will happen eventually. I probably won't see it in my lifetime, but it seems like, with enough time, anti-gun lobbyists will likely win. Society has this tendency to travel slowly left over time. It's happened with many other issues.

Now, of course it won't happen over night. Not only would that be a foolish way to do it, it would actually be quite dangerous. But slowly banning different types of weapons and ammunition slowly over the course of a century will allow this country to get to the point where it's financially impractical or physically unfeasible to own a gun anyway. And then a nationwide ban would occur. By that time, not many people would care because owning a gun is such a rarity anyway.

I don't think that anyone, other than extremists, actually that that Obama and his Muslim Cronies are going to go on a nationwide march to confiscate all legally owned firearms tomorrow. That notion is pretty ridiculous and strains credulity even from the most right-winged of Facebook-Posting Soccer Moms. But a slow creep of firearm curtailments would succeed in eliminating gun culture from America. This is why people fight so hard to reaffirm that the Constitution guarantees us the right to carry a gun and protect ourselves. It needs to be said, over and over, through multiple generations to stave off apathy and desensitization.

I really doubt guns would be banned by anti-gun lobbyists. If anything, I think it's more likely they'd be banned because the feds want to exert more control over us, and odds are it would be backed by many a large corporation looking to protect their ill-gotten gains.

To be honest, though, at this point I think it would be next to impossible (short of using armed forces) to revoke the second amendment and confiscate firearms. There's already so many out in circulation that it would be an exercise in futility, and even if they tried it, no way would people let it happen without putting up one hell of a fight.

I dont see a problem with it. Every person has the right to a gun. Except maybe felons, and even then I think they should be able to earn their rights back

If you watch his speech, addressed to the people affected by the Charleston shooting, he just looks tired. He knows that he can't do anything without some support, and he seems like he has given up, at least until he can get some citizen backing. This statistic just seems to prove that he is not prioritizing the reduction of gun violence.

I don't even want to talk about Obama and the Charleston shooting. He wouldn't even lower the flag for the marines killed, but he showed up at the funeral for the Reverend and made a speech. He practices so many double standards its ridiculous.
