I agree fun, however I don't think it will take repealing the gun laws to do it. I think it will happen much sooner than that and anyone disagreeing is not really paying attention.

America is hungry for leadership and many thought they found him in Obama. He is a leader however he may not be the leader that many wish to have. I don't care what people disagree with us, the revolution is close and the comparisons to Hitler are amazingly similar! Call the Right wacky all you want, I will die defending your right to say that until our President strips 3 of the amendments out of the Constitution. When that is gone, you will die trying to take my gun!

4 play, It is a very scary time that we have right now. It is interesting to look at the history of civil wars, revolutions and military coups. Much of what is happening in the USA is quite similar to the events that lead to them. Charismatic leader, economic problems, everyone looking for a scape goat, class envy, and decreased support for the armed forces by segments of the government. All it will take is the one final insult to start the flame. What will it be? Or will the leaders come to their senses. History is not the strong suite of most elected officials. If they knew history, we would not have been involved in the affairs of many of the countries we have. Vietnam is the perfect example. They had fought occupiers for over 1000 years. Giap and An just might have been two of the greatest military tacticians of the 20th century. But they were just peasants that no one here took serious. I think the potential spark point would be gun confiscation. In much of the USA, local law enforcement would refuse to disarm their friends and neighbors. Then the federal government would be forced to act or stand down. If they act, with so much of the armed forces being from rural areas, how many would refuse to comply? Now just stretch it a bit. What if there was a general with the oratory skills, leadership and ego of Patton or MacArthur? Military coups? Civil War? Revolution? I hope it does not come to this, but people never would have thought that Hitler could have done what he did in Germany, or that an unqualified socialist would come to power in the USA.

"I honestly hope there is a Revolution or a secession."

seems to be a growing sentiment, wonder how it was in the mid 1800's? Probably a lot like today.

You can bet that he or his AG will try to make points off of the tragic death of the policemen in in Oakland. They will not mention that the murderer was prohibited from owning a gun, was on parole, and had extensive criminal history. Parole boards should be held to the same degree of accountability that law enforcement people are held to. If this guy had not served his full sentence, then the board should be arrested for negligent homicide.

I have been saying since the campaign that he has been lying about his statements on guns. His voting record proves his views on the Second Amendment. His refusal to sign an Amicus Brief proves his views on the Second Amendment. His appointing Rahm Emanuel, Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton to his administration proves his views on the Second Amendment. His application to work in his cabinet proves his views on the Second Amendment.

obama wants to disarm everyone except criminals. Any gun owner who voted for him should be required to melt their guns.

Obama Wants to Disarm U.S. Pilots

Wednesday, March 18, 2009 12:19 PM

By: David A. Patten Article Font Size

The Obama administration is taking steps quietly to shut down the program that qualifies commercial airline pilots to carry firearms in jetliner cockpits in order to ward off another 9/11-type attack.

The administration recently diverted $2 million from a program to train and certify pilots to carry firearms safely while on duty. Instead, it is using the money to hire additional field inspectors to help discipline pilots who step out of line, according to a report in Tuesday’s Washington Times.

A Times editorial condemned the Obama administration's action, calling it “completely unnecessary harassment of the pilots.”

Since Obama took office, the approval process for certifying pilots to carry firearms has ground to a halt, the newspaper reports. Pilots are afraid to speak out about the behind-the-scenes maneuverings, for fear of retaliation, according to the newspaper. No cases have been reported in which pilots have brandished a weapon inappropriately or otherwise abused their eligibility to carry firearms.

About 12,000 pilots have been authorized to carry handguns while flying aircraft as part of the Federal Flight Deck Officers Program. Congress authorized the program in a 310-to-113 vote following the 9/11 attacks to help prevent terrorists from turning jetliners into flying bombs that could be used to attack key sites like the White House, the Pentagon, or Capitol Hill.

Paul Valone, a Second Amendment advocate who directs Grass Roots North Carolina , is calling for citizens to contract their congressional representatives to protest the administration’s anti-gun priorities.

Pilots are already required to pay for their own room and board during training, and use paid leave for the time they’re off the job. Every six months, the program requires them to be requalified for firearm use.

Two mass shootings in the news; 10 dead in Alabama and 15 in Germany at a school.

Germany has some really strict gun laws.
