Another provision would post the names and addresses of Des Plaines gun owners, along with an inventory of their guns, to an Internet-style database."

"The California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) today called for a tax credit for California gun owners. The tax credit would reimburse gun owners for the social value of firearm ownership, which causes dramatic reductions in, and serves as a tremendous deterrent to, crime and violence. No less than 16 separate studies confirm that firearms are used five times more often to thwart crime than to commit one."

"Your state governments are not upholding the constitution. The liberties they take with our unalienable rights have essentially destroyed all rights. They did so by following the lead of the federal government. Statutes as applied are not constitutional and are used to fool people into converting their rights to privileges through which the government can control people. It is a revenue creating racketeering process for the legislators and those they make rich..."

"Some say America started on July 4, 1776, when a congress in Philadelphia proclaimed, "These United Colonies are and of a right ought to be Free and Independent States."

"In fact, America's birthday is April 19. On that day in 1775, the labor pains started on the Lexington green. The baby was delivered at Concord's North Bridge."

"My personal opinion is people who are law-abiding should have the right to carry concealed if they want to," James said.

"Right, like we've been holding onto the government's money all year while the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) patiently waits to settle up on April 15. Baloney. Let's set the record straight."

- Free Registration Required -

Chalk up another one for the criminals. Gun control aids criminals. It kept the law abiding citizen from exercising his self defense rights. There were numerous coconspirators who are equally responsible for this crime; the Officials of NYC who enact the unconstitutional laws, those who enforce them, those who prosecute them and those citizens who would find an otherwise law abiding citizen guilty of possession, for the expressed purpose of protection.
