Scapegoating guns

I oppose any form of gun ban, magazine ban or a ban on the manufacturing of certain guns. I'm also against gun registration, restricting gun show sales, and any law requiring gun insurance.

I believe in the Second Amendment of our Constitution. I took an oath to protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. We now have a domestic enemy — gun control and those who support it. These “gun-grabbers” are attacking our Second Amendment and our individual rights.

I do not believe that the people who support this gun banning truly know what they are doing. That includes our congressman, Mike Doyle, and President Obama.

The president and his cronies do not realize how deep-seated our belief in guns is. Gun owners are a huge and patriotic group. The Obama crew has declared war on gun owners.

If this gun ban mistake somehow becomes law, I can see this country being split apart and the coming of a second revolution.

The government knew that our schools had security problems after the Columbine killings, but did nothing. Funding should have been made available for more security in our schools. Now the government is scapegoating guns to cover its failure to protect our children.
