A couple of very powerful facts that are curiously omitted from Ms./Mrs Dupuys article and virtually every other pro gun control opinion is the fact that each and every day over 64 MILLION REGISTERED GUN OWNERS KILLED NO ONE!!!!!!!
Also conspicuously absent is the fact that EVERY country that has taken the right to bear arms away from it’s citizens has in turn subjugated those very same citizens.
A government should fear it’s citizens, not the other way around. The U.S. Government in deference to the Corporation no longer governs the will of the people, what drastic steps do you think they would take if Americans were unarmed. I direct you to Hitlers Germany, Stalinist Russia, Moussolini’s Italy, North Korea, China, the list goes on and on and on. How many citizens of those countries enjoy the basic freedoms we believe are God given even today?
Americas armed populace represents the largest private army in the world. A quote by Isoroku Yamamoto states “You cannot invade the mainland Unites States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass”.
Activists jump on the misdeeds of a few people to vilify the entire gun owning populace and Mrs. Dupuy’s ill researched stance and uninformed opinion serves to forward an ignorant stance on the subject.

Ahhhh, I see. You sound like a cop yourself. What about the people that aren't criminals or illegals, that have to live there because that's the best they can do?? Do those honest people deserve to be treated like criminals because of thier location? I have family that are cops, I've been to the bar-b-q's and hear all about the grand time they have hiding behind their badges. Once upon a time you raised your kids to find a cop if something was wrong. Now you must raise them to not trust cops and request a lawyer if one so much as says hi. A police officer used to be a noble profession. It's a shame the good cops (far and few between) are stigmatized by the majority of bad cops.May 5, 2011
Let's try to remember, the police exist to serv the public. Punishment is the realm of the courts. No officer unless their life is in danger has the right to physically abuse ANYONE. We now live in a police state. The only way to reign in the abuse of authority is to publically record what is happening. The police will tell you it's illeagle and try to force you to stop recording. I've seen Camcorders and phones destroyed and confiscated by cops that realized they were just caught doing a no-no. If an officer is discharging his duty in the public arena, his or her actions are a matter of public record. Period! - Juggernaut, Not sure what neighborhood you live in, but spend some time in S. Phoenix, Glendale or Peoria and see how the storm troopers treat people. Could be your Mom, Dad, Sis, Bro, or kids.May 5, 2011
