On gun control

The GOP is apparently trying to kill two birds with one stone. The bill has already passed a test vote in the senate 75-22. The bill is primarily aimed at protecting gun manufacturers from lawsuits by victims or their families of gun related crimes. But, but, it's their fault...Guns are evil...If they hadn't made the guns the criminal couldn't have used it. Blah, blah, blah-bitty-blah-blah-blah. There is also a rather clever provision in there by the GOP to NOT renew the ban on assault weapons. OMG, you mean the second amendment does actually mean something? You know, I've read the constitution over and over again, and NO WHERE in the second amendment does it say anything about gun owners having to register. It's very simple, the right to keep and bear arms. Not, the right to keep and bear arms as long as the government says it's ok, or as long as it's just for hunting. And of course the dems are trying to block there provisions (surprise, surprise). Hey, you know what you liberal fuckbags, Hitler supported gun control too. It's the first step in forming a tyrannical government. Remove the ability of the citizens to protect themselves. You can read the whole story here.
