CTD has been charging higher than market prices on things at this point - yes, higher than the CURRENT market.

Oh, and they also tried to screw us over after Sandy Hook, so don’t buy from them.

""...who exercise their Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms..."

YES! I was just talking about the Right, not the actual language, BUT, you are correct in that KEEPING and BEARING are BOTH important and necessary Rights, that are the only defense when the need arises to protect We The People.

“Mom and Dad declared they watch Fox some, but couldn’t tune the TV to get it. I just told them I give up until they get off the CNN crack.”

You have nailed it. The MSM just brainwashes people to go along on this. We have a little media now, which we did not have in ‘68 or ‘94.

Not one more anti-freedom law more. Not one.

Plenty they could do to “do something”.

Repeal the Gun Free School Zone act ... School shootings have quadrupled or quintupled since it was enacted, depending on how you count.

Enact National reciprocity for concealed carry, under the Second Amendment and the Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution.

As long as we have a Department of Education, have them provide funding for gun ranges at schools and gun safety classes as part of High School ROTC. This is a sport that women excel in, so that angle could be worked.

“Why is the SERIAL NUMBER and MODEL NUMBER needed for a background check?”

Because it makes building a universal registration system so much easier.

“Gun Control - Professor Rummel’s stuff is always worth a look. He coined the term democide, meaning death by government. He estimates that in the twentieth century alone various governments have killed 262 million of their citizens. Most of those killed were in countries without a second amendment. His stats will surprise you.”

They have ALL been in killed in countries without a Second Amendment. The number killed in the United States, or Switzerland, or (maybe Finland) is so low (.000001 percent of the total) 2,000 out of 262 million, as to be effectively zero. Of course it was not insignificant to those killed.

Thanks. Another example. What happened to original thought?

These so called journalists and bloggers are just stealing from each other.

They’re working their way to some kind of “litmus test”, I’d bet. That’s where marxism/socialism/communism takes an enslaved people: same dead-end place and result.

HenpeckedCon said: We are a SCOTUS heart attack away from losing the 2nd amendment. And I hope all of the conservative “crusaders” who stayed home on election night rather than voting for that Northeastern Rino remember that too. There are now four Liberal radicals on the court. One more radical justice and they could rule the 2nd amendment only applies to the “Militia.” This was the most important election in our history, and granted Romney is quite a bit more Liberal than I would prefer, he was a good honest man who in my opinion, would have made a good President.

Mitt Romney on "Assault" Weapons Bans:

I do support the Second Amendment. I would have signed the assault weapon ban that came to his desk. I said I would have supported that and signed a similar bill in our state. It was a bill worked out, by the way, between pro-gun lobby and anti-gun lobby individuals. Both sides of the issue came together and found a way to provide relaxation in licensing requirements and allow more people to--to have guns for their own legal purposes. So we signed that in Massachusetts, and I’d support that at the federal level. It did not pass at the federal level. I do not believe we need new legislation. I do not support any new legislation of an assault weapon ban nature, including that against semiautomatic weapons. We have laws in place that, if they’re implemented & enforced, will provide the protection and the safety of the American people. I do support the right of individuals to bear arms, whether for hunting purposes or for protection purposes or any other reasons. That’s the right that people have

--

Let us see what else:

The candidate reiterated his support for an assault weapons ban contained in Congress’ crime bill, and the Brady law which imposes a five-day waiting period on handgun purchases. ‘I don’t think (the waiting period) will have a massive effect on crime but I think it will have a positive effect,’ Romney said. Source: Joe Battenfeld in Boston Herald , Aug 1, 1994

--

The "good honest man" you spoke of when mentioning Etch-A-Sketch Romney:

"Oh, and also the one about this "lifelong" devotion to hunting, which turned out to mean he'd done it twice. "I'm not a big-game hunter," Romney said, then explained that his preferred prey were rodents, rabbits, and such--"small varmints, if you will."

"He couldn't fathom why the caricature of him was sticking. When Romney's staff showed him the devastating YouTube video, his first reaction was,"Boy, look how young I was back then." Source: Game Change, by Heilemann & Halpern, p.293-295 , Jan 11, 2010

-----------

Stop being a GOP sheep and supporting dumbass gun grabbers just because they have (R) after their name. Better yet, stop blasting other conservatives for not voting for the same socialist gun grabber you did. some of us actually adhere to conservative principles vice anonymously post about them on FR with 0 follow through.

Look, I have no beef with you FRiend. People staying home because we didn't run the 2nd coming of Strom Thurmond got us 0bamacare. If we lose the 2nd amendment because of one moonbat judge that 0bama appoints to SCOTUS, that would be a total disaster. I don't believe Mitt would have appointed a gun grabber.

I have no beef with you either FRiend.

We got 0care because McCain was a terrible candidate that ran against himself. I supported Sarah Palin and ergo John McCain.....to include monetarily.

After the shellacking McCain received, the GOPe was running with it's tail between the legs. The Tea Party swept in in 2010 to combat the empowered radical left.

The GOPe co-opted the newly elected Tea Party Congressmen. Then they sandbagged every conservative in the 2012 race so "their guy" could be the nominee.

Myth is a leftist that says/does anything to get elected.

I'm with the Reagan mindset....you won't agree with me 100% of the time, but if you agree 75% then I'm your man. I don't agree with Myth on guns, baby murder, faggot marriage, or healthcare. I don't find myself on agreeing with him even 50% of the time.

If it is down to a single SCOTUS nominee that our republic hangs in the balance....all is already lost.

They could repeal the 2nd Amendment tomorrow and make everything bigger than a BB gun illegal......wouldn't make a difference. I'll never surrender my guns and will shoot anyone that comes for them same as today if need be.

Whenever I find myself feeling smug, like after an news artical where the Obummer gets slapped down, I remember the fact that this son of a RED will probably get to name THREE supreme court judges IN THE NEXT FOUR YEARS..!!

Then...Well...I guess we'll go to war...Because their is no way on this side of hell I'm going to give up my God given rights to a smuck like that...Or any smuck at all, for that matter....

It would also try to curb gun sales in states with more relaxed gun laws to buyers in states with stricter laws.”

Don’t they have to be shipped to a licensed dealer in your state?Doesn’t that dealer have to follow the laws of your state?

Handguns, yes. Long guns no under Fed law, although some states may prohibit as well. And of course, any dealer or individual can refuse a sale for any or no reason.

If you have a C & R license, you can have a great variety of guns shipped directly to you. The best $10.00 per year you can spend.

IF THE GOVERNMENT, IN 1933, COULD PASS A LAW MANDATING YOU SELL YOUR GOLD IN 60 DAYS TO THEM, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THEY CAN’T MANDATE YOU SELL THEM YOUR GUNS IN 60 DAYS?

Executive Order 6102 required all persons to deliver on or before May 1, 1933, all but a small amount of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates owned by them to the Federal Reserve, in exchange for $20.67 (equivalent to $371.10 today[3]) per troy ounce. Under the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917, as amended by the recently passed Emergency Banking Act of March 9, 1933, violation of the order was punishable by fine up to $10,000 (equivalent to $180 thousand today[3]) or up to ten years in prison, or both.
