If you arm yourself with an AK, shouldn't you arouse the suspicion of our Govt? I mean, we seem to have a thing against other large groups of folks who carry Mikhail's rifle around . . . oh wait, THOSE groups of people are Muslims.

What part of "Shall Not be Infringed" is not understandable???

sINCE WHEN CAN YOU WALK AROUND IN PUBLIC LIKE YOU ARE GOING TO WAR. i AM SORRY BUT THESE PEOPLE TOOK AWAY MY VOTE, AFTER SEEING THEM WALKING AROUND CONCORD OUTFITTED FOR WAR JUST MADE THE CASE FOR GUN CONTROL. IF A PERSON CAN WALK AROUND OUTFITTED LIKE A COMBAT SOILDER IN PUBLIC WITH AK-47'S AND AR-15'S THEN WE HAVE ALL LOST. STOP THE INSANITY.
