~~Laugh, laugh, I thought I'd die; it seemed so funny to me. Bringing Chris Kyle's wife into the 'self-defense' debate, when her husband, the American sniper of movie fame [Clint's boy] died on a shooting range, failing to defend himself. Those 'liberals' you claim have weakened laws against gun ownership really caused that, then, in your Wayne's World Way of offering an explanation or solution! I can follow the illogic in that.

It's Sangria time in south Florida. Think I'll go down to the waterfront bar and watch the gulls and pelicans glide over the surf, and laugh some more about those 'liberals' who have denied gun owners their privilege of defending themselves against death at an early age.~~

How well has the federal "RICO ACT" of 1970 worked to subdue organized crime, save lives of the American youth, lowered drug/gun trafficking, prevent future organized crimes, prevent gang related "drive by" shootings etc, etc, etc.

Yes, it made for more harsh criminal penalties for these crimes but it was not a deterrent to those criminal activities. Obviously

IMO, curtailing violence, by guns or otherwise, will never be controlled by government laws. It starts with "We the People" as outlined in the U.S. Constitution. The constitution puts that responsibility back on the state. Not the government.

It first begins with proper parenting and teaching ethics and responsibility. Next, it includes community involvement. Programs to involve neighborhoods, schools, towns/cities, counties and all state jurisdictions to mold the lives and thinking of the American youths.

Thanks to the Liberals, corporal punishment, by parents or schools, is now out of the question unless you are willing to go to prison for child abuse to teach and raise your child to respect others and their rights. Neighbors are reluctant to "blow the whistle" on bullies to other parents out of fear that it might become an "ethnic" issue. School teachers and administrators are reluctant to get involved with issues of troubled kids because the parents make excuses for their child's behaviors. Drugs are the answer to raising kids, not a good spanking when they need it. BTW, I hate child abuse in any form. But, a good spanking for wrong doings did me a would of good as well as my kids and grandkids. I was even spanked by neighbors that were quick to call my parents and tell them why. It takes a village to raise to raise a child.

Now that we don't have the "village" to raise or kids, what do we do??? The government with more gun laws is not the answer. Any more than more child abuse or drug laws are effective. To solve the problem starts with the family, community and state. Let's put the tax dollars there to identify the problems and correct them. Laws are already in place. They are just not enforced.

The same applies to illegal immigration laws. IMO

BTW ZZ. My ribs are hurting from laughing so hard but, I have to ask, did Tom Selleck, Robert Duvall, Clint Eastwood or Sam Elliott happen to sign that letter? If so, you have my attention and I owe you three drinks.

Also, don't let Obama get word that you have an "emergency flare gun" on board your sailing vessel. Or a "spear gun" for fishing. In the cinema world those are some bad ass weapons capable of mass destruction.

Taya Kyle, the widow of "American Sniper" Chris Kyle, asked President Barack Obama his first question on live national television Thursday night during the President's "Gun's in America" town hall on CNN.

Chris Kyle's wife told President Obama that gun control won't make us safer - as she penned earlier Thursday in an op-ed.

"I want the hope that I have the right to protect myself," Kyle said in response to the rise in gun sales under Obama.

Mrs. Kyle further cast doubt on Obama's notion that background checks would prevent mass murders.

"I know background checks wouldn't stop me from getting a gun, but I also know that it wouldn't stop any of the people in this room from killing...it's a false sense of hope," she said.

"Why not celebrate that we're good people and that 99.9% of us are not going to kill anyone?" Kyle concluded.

Fox 5 reporter and gun rights activist, Emily Miller, tweeted, "Chris Kyle's widow is amazing to stand up to Pres. Obama on live national TV and make powerful argument. She's so impressive."

Dateline: January 7, 2016 {Executive Office Cannon Fire} [AP]

~~FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — President Barack Obama tore into the National Rifle Association on Thursday as he sought support for his actions on gun control, accusing the powerful lobby group of peddling an "imaginary fiction" that he said has distorted the national debate about gun violence.

In a prime-time, televised town hall meeting, Obama dismissed what he called a "conspiracy" alleging that the federal government — and Obama in particular — wants to seize all firearms as a precursor to imposing martial law. He blamed that notion on the NRA and like-minded groups that convince its members that "somebody's going to come grab your guns."

"Yes, that is a conspiracy," Obama said. "I'm only going to be here for another year. When would I have started on this enterprise?"

"Try not to get too carried away there, dude. "

Posts like yours below is why I wrote this.

Like I said, when one makes a claim the burden is on them to support it.

btw I spend quite a bit of time digging in the Federal Register, and read and interpret laws myself. This is not exactly uncharted territory for me.

Ok VA, you keep auditing records and I'll keep up with laws. But, I'll not argue law without getting paid for it.

Like I said before..... believe what you want.
