I've been waiting for inspiriation (and, yeah, a good cool down on my part) before commenting on the illegal Obama's continued attack on our Second Amendment Rights.
I am so sick of this administration and the brain dead idiots that voted for him. Obama has already pretty much destroyed the First Amendment (Freedom of Speech). So I knew eventually something would happen where he would try to remove the Second Amendment from our list of rights. He is now blaming inanimate objects (weapons) for real or imagined violence. This entire Administration is continuing to use the Constitution for toilet paper. Obama hates us, you know. He wants all American ideals dead and rebuilt in his hatefilled image.
First off, it's a fact that there are more people injured or killed by Energy Drinks than by gun violence. The statistics have doubled since 2007. In 2008 alone, there were 16,000 documented incidents.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A new government survey suggests the number of people seeking emergency treatment after consuming energy drinks has doubled nationwide during the past four years, the same period in which the supercharged drink industry has surged in popularity in convenience stores, bars and on college campuses.
From 2007 to 2011, the government estimates the number of emergency room visits involving the neon-labeled beverages shot up from about 10,000 to more than 20,000. Most of those cases involved teens or young adults, according to a survey of the nation’s hospitals released late last week by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

Continuing with that line of thinking, how about the fact that there is ALWAYS a death in an abortion clinic but since that's sancitioned by the government and one of the Left's sacred cows, that is never mentioned.
Also, there were more fatalities in auto accidents in 2010 (32,885 people) than by gun violence. Source: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
And the comparisions can go on and on and one. Some not-so-well-meaning people need to calm down about "the gun issue" and look at the facts before giving up the right to defend themselves.
Ok, so I didn't cool down all the way. But, why should I?! And why should you?! This issue is extremely important. Passion for truth and justice is needed by good people to stop the tsunami of communism in our country. Here in the South, where we are still relatively free, gun and ammo sales are through the roof. Even we have taken steps to beef up our "stash". I hope everyone else is doing the same. It may be one of many important steps to insure that we preserve our God-given right to self defense. Everyone has the right to not be molested any bad guys, even elected bad guys. It is a God-given right to employ lethal force if necessary to protect the life of yourself and others.
