what does, "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" mean??
Responsible Gun Owners Must Be the Loudest Voices for Gun Safety Legislation
As a proud, responsible gun owner, I paid close attention to the president's speech outlining his executive actions on guns and studied the written proposal put forth by the White House carefully, and I can't NOT support them. I realize this may not make me popular with some gun owners, and I realize there is deep distrust of President Obama and his use of executive action. Simply put, I've always believed in being a responsible ambassador for the Second Amendment, a right that I hold dear; and, thus, I believe responsible gun owners MUST be the loudest voices for universal background checks and addressing the mental health crisis we face in this country, which form the crux of the president's proposals.
Universal background checks should be a no-brainer. Guns should not change hands without a background check. I cannot give my car to my children without filing a form with the DMV, and no one complains about that burden, nor do they suggest it's a veiled attempt to de-car America. Ronald Reagan, a conservative hero, wrote poignantly in 1991 that if background checks and waiting periods impacted gun deaths by as little as 10 to 15 percent, it should be the law of the land. In enacting universal background checks, Congress must fund improvements to the system and make it easy for a law abiding gun owner to transfer a gun to another law abiding citizen. It's also critically important that those who believe their Second Amendment right is wrongly infringed to have their day in Court and have a Judge review any administrative determination prohibiting them from owning a gun.
I also believe background checks should be streamlined for law-abiding citizens. A universal and robust background check process would show that responsible gun ownership is possible. Surveys show most Americans support responsible, law-abiding citizens purchasing a gun.

Amen! Responsible gun owners must speak up. Take the power away from NRA terrorists.
and a LIAR!!
Well we learned where Obama got part of his strategy from.
You want to stop the majority of gun murders in America?
Clean up the inner city ghettos. And I can promise you this...not a single asshole in the ghetto is a member of the NRA.
Not giving an inch is exactly the position the NRA's membership expect and demand that it take. Give an inch and the gun grabbers will try to take a mile. They have proven this time after time. Average Americans (including NRA members) are in favor of controlling access to firearms by those who cannot be trusted with them. The gun grabbers wish to deny gun rights to average Americans. So-obviously-the two groups are at cross purposes and your continued whining about that is unlikely to change anything..If I want to give my old shotgun to my Son it is, and should continue to be, my right to do so without having to pay the government for the chance to screw up the paperwork. And, no, there are no good reasons (and plenty of bad ones) for the government to have a data base of who has what guns.
The NRA wants to make sure inner city ghettos get all the guns they want. The NRA fights to protect the sources of those inner city ghetto guns.
That's some funny paranoid shit. Just wear lots of tin foil.
Clean up the ghetto and you wouldnt have to worry about guns.
It's really a simple matter to do so,commit a crime with a gun and it's an automatic 25 year sentence.
Of course since negroes commit the majority of gun crimes liberals will never go for it.
They wouldnt want to upset their base....
