    I’m glad the latest gun control measure did not pass in the Senate. I’m not a gun owner because I don’t like guns but I do believe in our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. I keep wondering how Obama and his Nazi supporters are going to tie in gun control with what happened in Boston. “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” I think what happened in Boston is a good argument for Americans to keep their guns. It’ll allow us to defend ourselves against the Muslim terrorists that are trying to kill us, which is exactly what Obama does not want us to be able to do. After all, he supports them.

    There is NOTHING wrong with having everyone who buys a gun to go through a background check. If they pass, they can buy what they want to protect themselves. It’s common sense. Makes me wonder what the NRA is really afraid of?
