    And most murders in America happen in urban centers involving gangbangers/drugs.......Most murders in America are committed by urban, young (under 22 years of age) African-American males...84% of gang members are Hispanic/African American living in large urban centers.....Look it up! It is public information available.

    So...Obama plans to restrict gun ownership in rural, suburban areas where traditional families enjoy the shooting sports/hunting so gangbangers in his Democrat-voting cities will have less access to guns.....Although, by definition, gangbangers don't obey laws.....they will find a way to have prohibited weapons....while the law abiding become more vulnerable PREY.....

    The law abiding, tax paying, workers are punished while the criminal, reckless and anti-social are enabled.......

    There are only three words to address this sorry state of affairs: JOIN THE NRA!

    I read a stat in Sundays Phila. Inquirer 18 Kids killed a day by firearms( accidental). That if true is pretty sobering.

    You have to disarm the law abiding public for hope and change to take place.

    Seeing what I have the past five years, I honestly believe Obama would not be unhappy if the only guns were in the hands of gangbangers and US Military under his command. He thinks he can even the score for US history. Things he said five years ago have changed dramatically to what he is saying today. Cuomo on the other hand simply is grandstanding for a 2016 white house run. Redistribution of wealth should be unconstitutional. What a rediculous idea to take away from those who work and give to those who will not. obama does one thing at a time...then on to the next..and he will not stop while he is still in power. ed nichols

    Let's see here. Take my money, investments, and such I have saved and done without for, and give to "gibsmedats" who will blow it on dope and booze.

    I took a generation to get where I am, I will be broke, "gibsmedats" will burn through my lifetime savings in a month. In the meantime, disarm me so I can't defend myself from gangbangers when they need more money for crack.

    When I apply for Federal assistance, I find out I am the wrong color and too old.

    THIS IS HOPE AND CHANGE?

    We don't have a problem with them here in CA. We put them on death row at $100,000. per year...we have 700 in custody now...then we hold them for 20 years while we pay for their appeals. I need to move.

    1 problem, wrong people are getting murdered. As for 18 killed by accident, the gang bangers doing the shooting, it is an accident when they hit anything or anybody.

    Shooting Coach,


    You hit it on the head. You're expendable because you vote for the "wrong" party.

    Winger,

    After posting such a long message, I wish you could explain your conclusions or what you wanted the readers to conclude.

    Waiting.

    Thanks
