the reason they want gun control is to get a firmer foothold on people being able to defend themselves and their rights . think about it with 50 million unborn children slaughtered in this country !! the truth is white conservatives are the only thing standing in the way of their socialist [communist]agenda!! gun control will start like all other government intrusions and morph from an assault rifle ban into a total ban on all firearms !! it is what big government does ....take,take,take !!and with the people that cling to their guns and religion [and the constitution ]disarmed control would be much easier !!
