Pro-gun activists held "high noon" rallies across the United States on Saturday to defend the right to own firearms that they say is being threatened by President Barack Obama's gun-control proposals.

The U.S. debate over gun control erupted in mid-December after a man armed with an assault rifle killed 20 first-graders and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut - the deadliest of a string of U.S. shooting sprees last year.

"We are law-abiding citizens, business owners, military, and we are not going to be responsible for other people's criminal actions," former Marine Damon Locke said to applause at a Florida rally he had helped organize.

Some in the crowd of about 1,000 in Brooksville, about an hour north of Tampa, hoisted signs that said: "Stop the Gun Grabbers" and "Gun control isn't about guns, it's about control."

It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve. But to much skepticism
can make you narrow minded to all possibilities no matter how unconventional.

But it's their Constitutional right to own guns and shoot innocent people by accident like a bunch of ignorant "skeered" Goobers! Too bad they're only trying to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill but can't extend the law to keep them out of the hands of idiots!

About sums it up :gun: :tu:

Too bad the law is not as precise and effective as a scalpel, eh?

In real life it works more like a sledgehammer.

Yeah, parroting the false political stereotypes and having a fun old time crapping on America's rule of law.   That about sums it up.

"Skeered" of losing our highest protected rights, or "skeered" of sensationalized media stories?   If fear has anything to do with it, the choice is clear what's more worth being afraid of.

"To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.   To impose on them a wretched life of hunger and deprivation is to dehumanize them." ~ Nelson Mandela

Even this article has the Sandy Hook shooting wrong.  He left the rifle in the car, and brought in handguns.
