If the federal government outlaws guns, the people who want to cause mass killings will turn to other methods.

Boston Marathon Bombing vs. Gun Control

While our fearless leader is wrapped up in an attempt to take our guns away, someone came up with a way to get around the gun shortage. They decided to set bombs in a crowded area with the main idea of killing in mass. The perpetrators came away alive, and we are set to the duty of finding them. If they had used fully automatic guns, they would have killed a lot of people and would have wound up dead themselves. Our citizens are the type that would have mobbed them, and if they didn't kill themselves, we would have made them wish they were dead.

The point here is, if guns are eliminated in this country, those that want to cause mayhem will find other ways to do it. We are fighting the Al-Qaida supporters because they want to kill everyone that doesn't agree with them. For the most part, they use bombs. They do have guns and know how to use them, but one person can do more damage with a bomb than a gun.

The Boston Marathon was a perfect place for terrorists to strike. They struck with two bombs, and the ones that did it lived to tell their story. Whether they were citizens of this country or foreigners , they are terrorists and will be caught. The fact still remains that they didn't use guns.

Our President has been pushing for gun control ever since he came into office. He raised his right hand and vowed to uphold the Constitution of the United States, then jumped right into trying to abolish the second amendment.

I have to ask the question: why is our leader spending his time on gun control when it could be used on correcting our financial problem or our unemployment situation? He has made more meaningless speeches about gun control than he has in any other problem in this country.

The Boston bombing should have been a wakeup call to our government, but when our fearless leader showed up in Boston, he made a speech that came across as saying, "ain't I the greatest thing to happen to this country?" There was very little remorse in his speech, and when he tried to show remorse, he failed miserably.

This country has to wake up and smell the skunk cabbage. There is more going on than they are telling us, and if we don't take a stand very, and I say very shortly, we'll have nothing to stand for.

What bothered me the most, and still does, is that this got HUGE attention, and an explosion in a fertilizer factory that killed many people got little attention. Why do you want to give terrorists more attention, isn't that what they want?

Why does trying to pass legislation requiring background checks when purchasing firearms at a gun show an attempt by "our fearless leader to take our guns away"? Nobody, but nobody - not Barack Obama, not Joe Biden, not any of us who would like to see some common-sense law, like outlawing assault weapons whose only function is to kill people - wants to take away or eliminate your precious guns. Anyone saying that the government wants to take away our guns is either talking nonsense or listening to lunatics like Wayne LaPierre.
