    Very good demonstration. Obviously your gun needs obedience training. It just lays there.

    Come to think of it that’s all my gun does too.

    An impressive collection of hardware! Your presentation was somewhat elementary but I think that it will take more to convince the progressives to get the message. The message being that the second amendment was to empower the people with the protection of the rest of the constitution against tyranny fro those appointed or elected to protect them in the first place but has gone rogue!

      We have tried to deliver that message for YEARS to no avail. But this message may help:

      ~300 MILLION AMERICANS DID NOT SHOOT ANYONE.

      STOP PUNISHING THE INNOCENT.

      STOP IT
      STOP IT NOW

      Let’s send this message (you can modify to suit the audience of course) to all our friends, post it on blogs, tweet it if you use twitter, and send it to Congress.

      Let them know that not only gun owners but ALL of us are tired of Congress ignoring their oath.

    I do not own any guns currently on the ban list in New York State, which was enacted as far as I am concerned illegally. To remove a gun from the hands of some discriminates against the rights of the rest of the population and gives an advantage to the few allowed to possess such a device. We are all about equality. If we let them take our rights to guns, if we let them limit the children we can have, if we let them control our children’s education, if we worry only about ourselves and not others, when they knock on your door to take away the internet who will save you? Who will listen to your cries for help? We have to stand firm to preserve the equality we have and enforce the laws we have. Some have gotten off because of the money they control such a P Ditty or what ever his name is that was caught with an unregistered gun in a New York City club, he received no mandatory jail time, what’s up with that. Foreign Nations hold our citizens hostage, Begahzi has never been resolved, why can we let them take away our rights when they have proven they can not protect us or will not? If the day comes that you want to pick a fight, you will have to do that alone, however the day you need protection I will try to protect you with what ever I have, please do not let it be a sling shot against Goliath.
    In God We Trust. Amen

    I did the same test with a book of matches and a Bic lighter.
    No arson.
    They just layed there.

    EVEN THE ANTI-GUNNERS SHOULD BE SCARED TO DEATH, ONCE THE BILL OF RIGHTS HAS BEEN CRACKED NONE OF THE 10 ARE SAFE. THEN SEE WHICH SIDE OF THE FENCE THE NEWS MEDIA AND THE ANTI-GUNNERS WANT TO STAND ON WHEN THEY GO AFTER THE 1st AMENDMENT. THEY’LL REALLY WISH THE GUN OWNERS WERE THERE TO HELP BUT BY THEN IT COULD BE TO LATE.

  • Michael Hennessy

    Proof positive. You guys are truly idiot’s. This is this dumbest argument ever attempted and now Bob puts it on on video . No one ( current company excepted ) actually thinks guns kill all by themselves. I know you are confused so let me spell it out for you slowly. Guns make the job of killing much easier. They are actually designed to do that. They (yes the guns) do their job as they were designed most efficiently when a person picks a loaded one up points it at another human person and then pulls the trigger. In fact they ( the guns) make killing so much easier that 67% of all homicides are committed by using a gun! I hope that helps all you brainiacs work out your terrible state of confusion.

      The latest numbers according to the CDC death by guns in 2006, 30,896 total, of which, 642 accidental, 16,883 were Suicide, 12,791 were Homicide, 220 were Undetermined and 360 by Legal intervention. In the same year, 43,664 were killed in Motor vehicle accidents, 37,286 died from poisoning, 20,823 died from unintentional falls.

      • Michael Hennessy

        You do realise the differences between choosing to kill someone with a gun and an accident in a motor vehicle dont you? You do understand that most people drive a car every day and the exposure is a mutual choice by the drivers? As for the poisoning figure all but .2 % of that is accidental.

        We have many laws to minimise accidental deaths. Rules for hand rails and steps and sidewalks and hundreds of others to help prevent accidental falls. Rules for motor vehicles include drivers license, insurance, speed limits, seat belts, air bags, thousands of federal design rules all to reduce the possibility of accidental deaths.

        Thanks for making the point that gun laws should regulate use and ownership in a similar maner of control.

    Micheal hennessy even with the all the regulations, safty and laws more people still die with autos. choosing to end someones life is not easy, it is a decision the individual has to make, the firearm just makes it more affective than a bat knife spoon rock etc etc etc.
