#1 Anything coming from this man and this presidency I will immediately reject.

#2 I should be able to own and responsibly use the same quality and quantity of weapons as Holder sent to the Mexican Cartels!

#3 As a nation I think we have to ask ourselves some hard questions...

Absolutely.

1- What the hell are we going to do about a $16T national debt that grows at over $1T a year?

2- Who is responsible for the Mexican and American deaths caused by Fast and Furious?

3- What happened in Benghazi?

4- In words and phrases that Americans outside of the Beltway can understand, how exactly will Obamacare change things?

5- Why is it so hard to get straightforward information from our public employees in Washington?

Etc.

#4 And by the way, Mr. Holder, your question about the rights we have has already been discussed in some detail by experts on the subject.

#5 Hear, hear, Matt!

#6 No guns were used on 9-11, nor in OKC bombing. Jim Jones used Kool Aid. It's not about guns. Evil will find a way.

#7 It's not about taxes or fairness, nor is it about guns. It's about control.

Men stumble over the truth from time to time, but most pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened. –Winston Churchill

#9 Something about the color of pots and kettles...

#10 Let me see if I have this straight. The government that attempts to clandestinely ship guns to AQ and MB elements across the globe, arms selected drug cartels in Mexico, and turns a blind eye toward urban, gang firearms murders in America...... now wishes to disarm law abiding US citizens ?

#11 Right. And they'll give gun-law waivers to union members and their own bodyguards.

#12 Discuss all you want.

#13 First disarm the Military, all of it, then talk to me.

Until you do, you're not serious.

#14 Matt has it right.

Instapundit has been asking what kind of guns Rupurt Murdoch's and Michael Bloomberg's bodyguards carry.

I have a more basic question as a citizen: why are their lives worth more than mine?

You want to freeze all this stupid blabber about taking away guns, pass a law saying that the bodyguards of the rich and powerful have no more rigs than you and I have for concealed carry. Argument will be over in a New York minute.

#15 Don't ban guns. Ban TV cameras.

#16 Thanks, Rantburgers. I knew I could count on you. I needed a little bit of balance for all the crap that's been coming from the media these past few days. I've been avoiding the television as much as possible but sometimes it still finds me and they only hard questions they are asking seem to be about finding a way around the Second Amendment. Of course, if you're Eric Holder or Barack Obama, you don't need no stinkin' Constitution.

#19 We have fire alams, fire extinguishers, fire escapes, and so on to protect our kids from fire in a school. But violence in school affects far more every year than does fire.

Why then are the leftists who mandate all the things in the school systems so adamant about not having armed and trained teachers/staff, or police officers present in the schools?

We have armed personnel guard the government buildings and the politicians judges and bureaucrats who are in there - are our children and school buildings any less important?

#20 I'm a parent with 2 kids in school. I will be suggesting to the school principal that we implement a policy of 100% searches for ALL people entering the school. And this policy may also require the presence of a full-time armed guard to deal with high-risk offenders. I don't believe changes in the gun laws will alter the risks of school shootings in any measurable way. We will have to change safety & security at the schools themselves.
