  • Don’t repeat mistakes
    of the past
    Obama and his progressives want to strip guns from American citizens who have the God-given constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If that happens, the United States will become ne giant shooting gallery.
    If you want proof, take a look at Chicago, Washington, D.C., and New York. These three cities have the strictest gun control laws in the nation, yet these are cities with the highest homicide rates!
    As the old saying goes, if you outlaw guns, then only outlaws will have guns. Guns were only a tool the killer used to shed innocent blood at the Connecticut school. Did Timothy McVeigh use guns to kill 168 people in Oklahoma. Did Unabomber Ted Kaczynski use a gun to kill  his victims? Did the 9/11 terrorists use guns to kill 3,000 people in New York City?
    Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons to kill the Kurds in Iraq. Cult leader Jim Jones used cyanide in Kool-Aid to kill 900 people in Guyana. So why do citizens in America have to be punished by losing their constitutional rights for what this school shooter did? Gun control advocates are a threat to our freedoms. When our gun rights are gone, our government can do with us as it wishes.
    Remember Hitler and Stalin - they killed millions of their own people to enforce their own control. Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.
