    I'm a gun owner, most of my friends are gun owners, but i'm confused... What is the problem that most conservatives have with President Obama's Gun Control ideas? I hear the speeches, read the plans, watched the town hall and listen to commentary on both sides until my ears bleed and I still don't understand the conservative position.

    Everything that the President has suggested makes sense to me. I don't feel threatened about losing my guns, and I don't think that a responsible citizen's ability to buy a gun is being threatened. I think anything that helps keep guns out of the wrong hands is a good idea, it will save lives! The only point I hear from conservatives on why they object is that they think there is a hidden agenda by the Left to take away all guns. That is ridiculous, paranoid and unrealistic, there must be something more...

    Why does the pro-gun base object to background checks and regulations that will make it harder for criminals or irresponsible individuals to own a gun? I just don't understand the argument. Please enlighten me.

    Incrementalism is the problem.

    Simple, Barry is a lying POS.
    Aside from that he does not have any credibility on the issue and more laws = less freedom.

    Yep, "come on, it's just this." So we let them doe that. Then it's "well, you already went along with that." So we let them do that. Then it's "well, we already did this and that, what's the problem with this?"

    It never ends.

    Plus the fact that the proposals would prevent no criminal from acquiring a firearm.

    Deal with the criminals and the insane. Take them off the street, permanently if necessary. Leave the real people alone.

    we already have background check laws, we already have laws that punish crimes involving guns, just enforce the existing laws. Stop feeling sorry for criminals, stop letting criminal illegals enter this country, put more police in the central cities and eliminate the gangs.

    there is no need for new gun legislation.

    FYI -- No amount of effort can keep guns out of the hands of anyone that wants one, it's impossible. People trade guns, sell guns to friends, family, and neighbors, and it's easy to buy a gun at a flea market, yard sale, or from the trunk of a car. There are many guns purchased on the black market, and many cross our borders. The whole idea of "Gun Control" is silly, ridiculous, and will not stop violent crimes, gang violence, and thugs from using them. Guns are available to anyone that wants one, from many sources, and some can not be traced.

    Your trust in government is misplaced.
    America is one of the last places where the government is concerned that the populace,if pushed to far have the ability to oust said government....and I'd prefer to keep it that way.
