Read these today in the Chicago Tribune:

THE FIRST LETTER HERE CALLS THE NRA AND GUN OWNERS TERRORISTS AND THEN SAYS THEY ARE WORSE THAN TERRORISTS

"Gun supporters

What does it take for the people and legislators in this country to realize we have a horrific problem with gun violence unequaled in Western democracies? How many more of our loved ones have to die to prove this point? How many of our children?

The massacre that occurred at Virginia Tech, for me, is the last straw. The 2nd Amendment should not give the NRA and gun-on-demand supporters the right to terrorize this country.

Many are now claiming that if the students on that campus had been armed that this would not have happened, as if more guns are the answer. This argument is not only disingenuous but flies in the face of basic common sense.

I am more afraid of these gun-toting ideologues than I am of any terrorist group. And the justification for such liberal gun laws? To fight the government should it cross the line, whatever that means. These people are arguing for the right to violent resistance and violent revolution.

Enough is enough. It is time to push back, and hard.

THIS LETTER WANTS TO HAVE US PAY FOR EVERY VIOLENT ACT SOMEONE ELSE DOES ON A YEARLY BASIS BECAUSE WE ARE GUN OWNERS WHO HAVE NEVER COMMITED A CRIME

"Gun ownership

As a graduate of Virginia Tech and former resident of Blacksburg, Va., I share the misery from these wanton killings.

Having lived in Virginia for 17 years (including military service), small-game hunting in the mountains was enjoyable and unobjectionable. But after bringing my young family to the Chicago suburbs, it behooved me to give up my rifle.

Too often our society is paying the price for untempered possession of handguns, especially semi-automatics. This is not a 2nd Amendment issue about rights to gun ownership. It is about the failure of Congress to provide for the public’s general welfare, as Section 8 of the Constitution of the United States mandates: "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States."

With the public having to bear societal costs from gun ownership, it would seem obligatory for appropriate levels of local, state and federal government to levy compensatory taxes and surcharges.

Money collected ought to reimburse costs of medical care, liability, incapacity, rehabilitation, victims, families, courts, property damage, law enforcement, prisons, restitution, business loss, emergency response and other public burdens related to gun ownership in the United States.

Just as it is with income taxes: Those who don’t file or pay are subject to being charged and judged, possibly resulting in lawful penalty for failing to comply.

The 2nd Amendment is just fine as it is: the right to bear arms. But how many tragedies will it take before Congress exercises its constitutional powers to provide for the general welfare of all the people?

Plainfield"

THIS LETTER THINKS WE SHOULD COMPLETELY GET RID OF THE 2ND AMENDMENT

"Repeal amendment

After experiencing the deadliest on-campus shootings ever, reasonable people must wonder whether the people’s unquestioned right to keep and bear arms should now be substantially infringed. The time has arrived to consider repeal of the 2nd Amendment.

The folks who wrote those insightful letters must have done so on really low desks & tables, because it is obvious that they are comfortable living on their knees.

Fuck them all.

It's high time that the sane & armed in our society stop allowing the insane & unarmed to dictate this Republic's future.

Seriously folks, the worm has turned... our fate is in our hands. We just have to muster the courage & will to shape it.

There are plenty of countries which don't allow ANY private gun ownership, and these fuckstix are hereby invited to move to any or all of them.

If there was a "new brain" clinic, all of those people should be remanded to them.

I HATE saying this, because i say it WAYYY TOO OFTEN!

CRIMINALS DO NOT FOLLOW LAWS, SO CONTROLLING GUNS ONLY TAKES AWAY THE MEANS FOR INNOCENT, LAW ABIDING CITIZENS TO DEFEND THEMSELVES

are these froots DOOMED to die? Mabey we should take one pice of the US (small, and in horrid living conditions) and make it a NEW country. Then send ALL the libtards, and anti-gun asshats into it. Fence it off, with high security gates (for those smart enough to realise what it is, that they've created, to leave) and LET IT SIT. 6 months, not even, and the US government will be able to fully reclaim the land. Then use it as a giant prison for criminals.

i cant see it... they seem to have this obsessive view, that "all people are kind, and good hearted" and if you take the guns away, that it will magically turn into some kind of fruitopia...

God i hate libs

I wonder if these asshats wrote those letters with a quill pen? Surely the Founding Fathers didn't intend for Freedom of the press and speech to include such high capacity computers and printing presses capable of spewing thousands of words without reloading. Only the police and military need means of such mass communication. The Founders couldn't have foreseen such awesome word power or the wouldn't have put in the BOR. I say its time to repeal the 1st Amendment, for the children.


Eat me you liberal, cock smoking, baby killing, wimp ass bitches. You want to take away guns? MOLON LABE, motherfuckers.

The second guy moved to Chicago and GIVES UP HIS GUN?!?!? WTF!!

In Chicago you probably need them more, or at least something more concealable!

Bunch of clueless people! Go ahead give up your 2A rights I don't care, but don't strip me of mine.

Low desks and tables are also used by small children; the desired permanent human condition as espoused by liberals.

Have you read Brohawks excellent reprint of Mark Stein's editorial?

The 2nd amendment is already all but overturned in Illinois.
Link Posted: 4/20/2007 4:14:41 AM EDT


Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker praised the legislature for allowing the school to disarm lawful gun owners on the faculty and student body, thereby surrendering every college campus in the state to deranged mass murderers, saying: "I'm sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly's actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus."


Gee, I wonder how that working out for VT?

Well, the fact that some a$$hats want to repeal the 2nd indicates that they realize that it IS an individual right. Silver lining.

Yep, Chicago has no 2nd Amendment. It was done away with a few years ago, in Chicago. Don't believe it? Try buying a handgun in the city of Chicago.
As a result they should have no (zero) crime.
