    I think it's a matter of people are more aware of their right to be able to offer firearm based protection for themselves and their family beyond just within the confines of their own home.

    In fairness some people will sign anything. I remember seeing a guy collecting signatures to end womens suffrage outside a womens university once.

    This was more or less the point I was trying to drive at, albeit in a much more indirect fashion.

    All you have to do is pop up in a public space with a pen and clipboard, mumble something barely audible, but clearly express the phrase "it's terrible, and needs to stop" towards the end, and people will sign whatever you put up in their face.

    You can't prevent all massacres, but you can prevent many by simply denying anyone identifying as liberal/progressive/communist/statist from owning firearms.

    The moron collecting the signatures is very good at taking the mick out of common sense. It might seem farcical to him but it's an area American is about 100 years behind in.

    Why should all of the power rest with the state, if you are reducing it below the federal government shouldn't local governments have more say than the state as they are going to be more in touch with their constituents?

    It was definitely a liberally progressive communist who shot up Planned Parenthood, amiright??

    But seriously, not the brightest statement ever, even if you are trying to be clever.

    His other videos are hilarious. He has one where he says the government is proposing a Male Privilege Tax to account for the wage gap. Another is a petition for pets to be covered under Obamacare. In another, he asks people what year approximately Jesus died, and if there were stricter gun control laws back then, if that would have stopped Lee Harvey Oswald from shooting Jesus.

    There's a nice little story going around the social media circles that all the recent mass shootings have been committed by registered democrats. His statement is probably branching off from that.

    So, you're saying there are limits to the Second Amendment and we can restrict firearms ownership. That's a radical departure from the usual Molon labe rhetoric.

    no it is the robocop thing going on that they can protect others with their gun with no training and no skill. just liek the NRA wants for America everyone armed no matter how little they know.

    Yes NRA wants everyone armed. that has been said many times in many ways. but no mention of training for all those gun owners no background checks nothing but buy more guns so the good guy will kill the bad guy.
    are you saying you need proof the NRA wants everyone armed? their every teacher needs to be armed and all is very clear. never a good guy that is trained but just a good guy. Just because you love the NRA and its crackpot president and fellow crackpots (want m to post how crackpot'd they are too)? well they do want children trained but that is more of the big tobacco thing going on there hook them you hook them well.

    Yes, I know that!

    But for some, it only seems to matter if they are Muslim. Or Democrat. ;)

    Just pointing out the absurdity of the whole thing.

    It's great being able to categorize people into such conveniently labeled boxes, you liberal.
