1.5 billion .40 S&W were not purchased by DHS for anything but shooting at those of us who will refuse to turn in our firearms.
My suggestion remains that WE buy up all the guns and ammo we can possibly afford. That sends a message as well as any phone calls or letters could.

Well-fisked, Claire. Well-fisked, indeed.
Perhaps you’ll allow two additions:
And surely the Founders couldn’t have envisioned weapons like those used in the Newtown shooting when they guaranteed gun rights.
They couldn’t have envisioned radio, television, and the internet either. Does that mean that freedom of the press doesn’t really exist when aired on electronic media?
Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony.
Illegal ownership or possession of an assault rifle is already a felony.
As for the “do something,” perhaps they should include firearms safety (incl. marksmanship, law, maintenance, etc.) in the standard public-school curriculum as they do for sex ed and drivers ed.

And does this precious idealist have any skin in the game? Will he be the one out front with the megaphone as the SA masses to destroy US citizens?
The most pathetic thing is that shitsucking weaseldicks like this expect to sit placidly behind all of the mayhem they advocate. They have so marginalized anyone not on their side that they can’t imagine ever coming face to face with one of us. He postures and makes fierce faces but he’s not going to put anything on the line, the slimy would-be Gauleiter.

I’ve heard this advanced a number of times. Funny how they expect everyone to simply accept it without any thought. George Washington was a General. He’d been in the armed forces for a number of years. Had he never seen technical advances in arms? Franklin and Jefferson were accomplished inventors. Every bifocal wearer is wearing one of Franklin’s inventions. How would anyone know that they’d never thought of an automatic weapon – especially since theoretically workable designs (limited only because of then-unavailable manufacturing methods) for automatic weapons had been extant since the mid-17th century.
