CNN) -- To all of you gun lovers, feel free to go buy your Glock, shotgun, hunting rifle, .22 pistol, .357 Magnum or any of the other guns at your disposal.
But you do not need an AK-47.
For some, it's too soon to discuss gun reform, a little more than one week after the mass killings in Aurora, Colorado. I disagree. Too many Americans are being killed by guns every day; this most recent heinous tragedy should not keep us from having a rational debate.

Journalists don’t need a limo to drive them to work.
Hollywood stars don’t need a Ferrari.
Obummer doesn’t need Air Force One.
Pelosi doesn’t need a vineyard in Napa.
The list goes on...
The purpose behind the 2nd amendment is for the average citizen to protect oneself against tyrany. In order to to do that, we need to be able to buy the same calibers and capability of Government forces. This was mandated by or founding fathers.
I like my AKs, my soon to be purchased AR, my shotguns, my pistolas, and I may be going fishing soon with all of them and lose them in Galveston Bay, he he.
Why do Lib Commie Bass Turds always think guns are the problem? Idiots and commie/facist are the problem.
Someone quick post those great tyrannical gun photos.
Hey Martin, it is your and Holder’s people behind the triggers killing each other in Chicago.
With this rogue government, Americans need as many guns as they can get.
The 2nd amendment was meant to insure that citizens could possess weapons sufficient to confront a trained army.
In my mind this should be interpreted in that you should be able to own anything up to and including a heavy machine gun, bazooka or even artillery.
You are what’s great about FR. If I’m not lkaughing my ass off by the 2nd reply, I get profunnndities later,
sorry for the typos, I’m laffin - or cryin - dammoit!
I think if I were in a mob-rob situation, I’d like to get more than one shot off before going down.
Put it in context. When the second amendment was adopted the state of the art weapon was the musket. The government had the same weaponry. It was adopted not to hunt, not to target shoot, it was adopted for personal defense. The second amendment was written to protect people from a tyrannical government—One that they just defeated and an unknown number to follow. It is a right to bear arms. I go to bed every night thinking that this country is probably the safest on earth because nobody is stupid enough to invade us. Too many weapons in the hands of citizens.
Hey Roland, you say you want us not to have weapons?
How does it feel to WANT MFer?
You see, your problem is it’s too LATE, we already
have THEM, and unless you are willing to die to take
them, since we are willing to die to keep them you
are just SOL.
They want this fight? Fine. Bring it you assholes. Throw yourselves over the cliff if you want.
Yowza, I’m thinking it may be time to get that AR before the nannies decide I shouldn’t.
And a one MEEEELLION bullet clip to go with it.
if it is a “right” we do not need to convince you of our need.
Anything else you say is crass stupidity.
We don’t need CNN.
Someone tell the dems we’ll make a deal. We will negotiate in good faith. We give up the black scary guns and they give up abortion.
No? Why not? If we have to abandon a legit 2’nd amendment right, a made up by lib judges ‘right’ should be easy.
What is it about “BLACK” guns that the dems are afraid of? Sounds racist to me.
Well, I think liberals should not even have sharp pencils.
They have a mental illness.
Tell you what roland, there's some animal droppings in the driveway. Feel free to eat them all up.
Keep in mind Tim that there are levels of Tyranny,
the thug who wants your wallet is no different than
the politician who wants to take your freedom.
The gun is insurance against them both.
Try and take them from me, but be prepared to DIE.
The average American does not need Liberals.
Really; they don’t.
I notice that the left has recently changed their tactics on gun control.
They know fighting the second amendment is a loser, so they say it is OK to have guns, just not “assault weapons”.
They say they support the right to keep and bear arms, but with “sensible” restrictions.
Having unfortunately lived my entire life in California, every year the legislature finds several more “sensible” restrictions they must impose. There is no end to it.
