    I read an article quite a few years back by Col. Jeff Cooper in which he said,"The Gun Control Debate isn't about controlling guns, it't about controlling people". Some thoughts please.

    History has shown again and again, the ones with the guns are the ones with the power, freedom, and control.

    On the surface it seems to be the statement of an erudite, but really it is stupid.


    The phrase, "No Sh*t Sherlock" comes to mind.

    If you disarm the law-abiding people, what's left?

    "Gun control" is just one aspect of Control that this administration seeks. While communists told everyone, the govt. existed to insure a fair distribution of a country's wealth; todays democrats have pandered their "Power" to those who do not contribute to the country's wealth, so that they will vote them into office and give them more power to control the country through our "Democratic" process. We are about to be overrun by 11 million new democratic voters.

    Certainly, there will be change in this country, but unless the penduleum starts to slow down on it's travel to the left, more of our basic freedoms are going to fall. The hunger for power begets more hunger, not more freedom. Greed, the loss of the puritan ethic and a failure of a few good men to take action will lead this "experiment in Democracy as a form of govt." to a sad demise.
