Gun Control Sliding?
As reports have suggested... http://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/local...85021.html

there's 28 people heading down south from CT, to urge Washington to pass legislation controlling guns. As Americans, we uphold the Constitution highly, and it's not always easy to chip away parts of the 2nd Amendment. Nevertheless, the violence has gotten worse. Steps need to be undertaken to increase the safety of Americans.

But is gun control the only answer? Not exactly. We see a direct relationship between cutting funds to mental health institutions and increasing crime. We need to make sure that anyone who needs mental help gets it quickly. Other than that, healthcare reform indirectly affects it. People who have suffered through poor health also become frustrated and may "lose it" at some point in time.

RE: Gun Control Sliding?
in a perfect world guns and other weapons are pointless serving no use but to either be nice to look at or ruin perfection, I hate violence, death, and pain to my core.

However, this world is not perfect; it’s not even remotely perfect. Since the dawn of humanity weapons have been in mankind’s hands from before homoSapien was even completely evolved (it still technically isn’t but you get the point). Guns and other weapons are for the time being, precautionary measures that are so relevant in our world they boarder on necessity. They are equalizers between good and evil, while evil will always use weapons to they’re fullest potential, the margin between that and what an ordinary human can produce is often small. Truly evil people will have weapons and will use them as often as they can, when you remove average people from the equation that means while you remove a lot of the chances for sick people or reckless people using weapons you open it up for evil. So your choice is between evil and stupidity, only one of those I know how to get rid of in a peaceful manner.

One thing to remember, the true reason for the 2nd amendment isn’t for the defense of people within a country from other people within a country, that’s why guns exist in the first place. it’s to defend a people from its government. Our forefathers understood what the power of a man can do when he has all the cards in his hands, if you give a man all the usable weapons in the world and a means to use them, you give him the world to own. They grew up in a time where they were isolated from the forces that governed them so much that those that ruled them didn’t see any reason to care what happened to them, the army had few relatives living there n few reasons not to follow orders to oppress them. The more you separate a government from its people the less a government needs its people to be happy. For our country to have the government it has it requires that government to be by the people and for the people, to be equal. These gun control laws and many more only affect the people but not the government, with these laws the government will continue to develop more powerful means of being able to control the mass in order to get its way.

It seems like a scenario out of a book that the government starts to oppress its people even when it’s supposedly for equality but effectively every communism I’ve ever heard of has, and the nazi party started out as a socialist group. Communism and socialism are supposedly built around the concept that all people regardless of personal or social traits are to be treated equally and dealt with equally. These ideals are similar to democracy in that it’s a government where the ideals of the majority dictate the life’s of the whole, and this system to can be manipulated if it is done so in a favor that seems better for the whole like gun control. Those who should give up freedom for security will find they have neither, to live in this world you must be strong, that doesn’t mean you must be a king, a knight, list 300 pounds or be rich, all that means is that you don’t give up things that you have the right to just because your afraid to deal with reality, that’s not strength and that’s not American.

I'm surprised that AF used caps. I'm not as surprised that AF defended guns.

Guns should always be there to fight the power of tyrannical government.
