    Here's a group that wants to take away all private guns. They want to enact laws that:

    I must say that there are quite a few THR members whose collection could be considered a museum. "He's Bona Fide!"

    But knowing that our government cannot pay for its debt now, how soon would the U.S. declare bankruptcy if it were to pay for all civilian owned guns at fair market value.

    I dare that group to try it on their own. I will move if such a thing were to actually pass, preferably somewhere my gun rights are even more open. God knows where I will find it.

    There is a reason that Melon Lave is our battle cry. We use it not only as a slogan, but as a recourse to oppresive government gun-grabbing, and as a way of life. The more I read on this forum, the more I realize that my gun-rights are in more danger than I knew, and I dont even own one yet.

    What a great site. Tons of great info. Very well researched with some nice 'toons. Bravo goodbyeguns.com you have changed my mind. I cant find any reason to try to debate Anti's. They have no sense at all.

    The thing about the internet is that it gives practically anyone a world-wide soapbox to stand on and harangue the masses from.

    Even lunatics like this Clark Garen fellow.

    I couldn't resist e-maling them... from my junk e-mail address anyways, so I don't get tagged as a anti-gun zealot! :)

    Hello,

    I ran across your website and just wanted to say that you are doing a good job. Our children need a gunless society to be able grow up safely without living in fear. However, one point I disagree with is number 5:

    "5. Provide exemptions for governmental law enforcement agencies, the armed services, and bona fide museums."

    To rid this country of evil guns and protect our children, we must not allow anyone to have them and since it will be illegal for people, criminals and potential criminals to have guns this means the police and armed services won't need them either. Making guns against the law for everyone is the only way to ensure that our children will truly be safe from all exposure to them.

    All of the nuts and fruits seem to come out of kalifornie.

    A few thoughts.

    If you would like to come and get my firearms you come and do it yourself. Dont rely on the gummit to come and get them from me.

    Selective freedom is not freedom. While this nut job wants to spout off his freedom of speech what he does not want is for someone else to use the rest of their rights.

    About the time the government takes away all gun rights is about the time another group will want to make a different country.

    Knives can and do have better stats supporting that they are more deadly than firearms. I read that 80% of all knife wounds/stabs are fatal and only 35-45% of gun shot wounds are fatal.

    If you would like my firearms so bad come and take them.


    Just a side note I think we should let kalifornie become its own country and turn Eastern washington, northern Idaho, and western Montana into one state to make up for the kalifiornie loss. Let the bliss ninnies live in their idea of a utopia.

    I have a hard time believing that figure on knife wounds. The mortality rate on gunshot victims seems about right, but 80% for knife wounds? Doesn't jive with me.

    I was just thinking about how much it would cost for the 200 million guns for the government if such a scenario occurred.

    200 Million Firearms X $250 = $50 Trillion

    I'm sure Uncle Sam could write some more I.O.U.'s...I mean non-marketable treasury bonds.

    I paid cash for my guns. I would accept nothing less than cash from the feds.

    If they can't pay cash, then the guns get burried somewhere along with all my ammo.

    However I have nothing to worry about unless they repeal the Bill of Rights.

    The funniest part

    They want to pay "fair-market-value" for the weapons. As there are fewer weapons in the market the market will fairly increase their value. Unless the government fixed prices. That isn't fair-market, now is it?

    And what kind of "fair-market-value" can be established when the market no longer exists? Which is to say, since (presumably) at the time of the buyout, purchase and sales of the weapons by civilians will be outlawed, firearms will be essentially without market value (making them either worthless or priceless, depending on your outlook).

    Is this tongue in cheek?

    If you read this guys bio, he is trying to say he defends individual rights that our forefathers fought and died for........From his website ....


    "It's no surprise that Clark finds these people interesting. In his legal practice, he relishes cases that emphasize the rights of the individual. "Even though the preservation of individual rights is out of fashion now," Clark explains, "I've always admired Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, who understood that the primary purpose of the Court was protecting every individual from being oppressed by the Government." As Clark notes, this philosophy sometimes puts him at odds with the trends of the day.

    Clark believes a small group of con artists are fooling our citizens into throwing away the rights our founding fathers paid for with their lives. Think Radio advocates "awareness and thought" as tools to defeat these evil and sinister con artists. "


    Doesn't sound like a gun grabber to me......Which part is real and which part is fantasy? Does anybody listen to this guy on the radio?

    Remember Australia?

    Priceless collections were taken and the owners given "fair market value".
    I'm sure the gubmint will do us right also! ;)

    I was wondering about that, too, dj. He is very clear on individual rights and the BoR and yet his site is built around the ultimate violation of one of those Rights...Somewhere the fellow has a huge joke going on but knowing nothing about him except his site I don't have a clue where the humor is.

    I never thought of the money part of it. $50 trillion! Now that makes sense. The Steyr that I bought for $300 well now its worth $610(MSRP). They can’t even come up with a realistic lie.
