#1 Absolutely Insane's agenda would be Al-Qaeda's dream come true; the victims would have a duty to appease.

#2 The irony of these organizations is laughable. Their campaign to reduce weapons will only work on those nations/people that legally possess them, and will do nothing against the tyrannical regimes they mention. Only in societies that respect dissent can orgs like these exist and press their agenday. The ultimate irony is that our society was founded on the notion that the right to bear arms is inalienable, and that these orgs are using the tolerance of the society this has built to disarm its members. Makes me sick...

#3 I though Oxfam was all about feeding the hungry. Starving people could use firearms to kill game and eat it.

Isn't this like the NEA being Pro-choice. More abortions - fewer children = fewer teaching jobs.

#4 So...I guess the Russkies and the Chinese are gonna stop selling AK's/Modle 50's to everybody with $30?

In a pigs eye.

And let's not even think about the Norks...

#5 Why don't these leftwingers admit it: They want to disarm the USA, so they can destroy it.

Disarming America is long a goal of communists worldwide.

#6 Yet the reverse has occurred. The vicious circle of arms transfers, conflict and abuse can and must be stopped," said Irene Khan, Secretary General of Amnesty International.

Lord, please forgive me these next two Star Trek jokes:
