Apparently they are taking people's guns.... People who aren't legally allowed to have them. I think this is a step in the right direction.

The fact that it's news that people getting illegal guns taken from them only highlights the problem. We're far too lax on gun control.

A militia is a collection of civilians. A controlled militia would be all civilians authorized by the government to carry a firearm and use it at their own discretion.

In other words, you're saying the people allowed to have guns should be made to be allowed to have guns. Not really helping anything.

Man I feel prescient...
Stephen Colbert said on his show tonight (roughly): "Well sure, my family is less safe with a gun in the house, but isn't that a small price to pay for my family's safety?"

He was referencing a study that showed households with guns are at greater risk of homicide. Which was the argument I made here last month.

You'd be talking about the 2nd amendment of the constitution I'm assuming. And that has about as much relevance in today's society as the part of the bible that says its a man's right to beat his female slaves so long as said beating doesn't kill them within 3 days.

Guns are our last freedom. We're Americans. They have a gun license for a reason, isn't that enough?! The government wants to rid of them so if they pull something, we can't fight back. Guns are what make us free Americans! Are you just gonna let them destroy our amendments?!

They keep putting out fake stories on the news about shootings, just to scare us. Most of them are made up or framed. One supposedly happened on my street, but i didn't hear anything! It's so fake! The Illuminati wants full control. Don't give it to them!
