Yep I sure have along with some other stupid ideas that just won't work for one and are unconstitutional for second.
The battle over gun rights is huge and there thousands of articles that cover every angle of it.
I'd suggest to look in the Republicans/conseratives group under the "Gun Rights!Call me crazy".You can find a weath of information there.
Semper Fi !!!

|What most people don't understand is all of this gun control isn't about gun control at all.It's all about gun confication.I don't care what anyone says or thinks but obama is a communist.He is following the exact path that other dictators have followed in the past,hitler and stalin just to name two.It's all in the REAL history books.Everytime it has been tried it has failed.
Semper Fi !!!
Wheather you like obama or not the facts speak for themselves.
Very recently rumors have been surfacing about a new wrinkle in the Obama/Holder stealth firearms ban/confiscation project or rather agenda to prevent arms from being accessed by law abiding American citizens. The information comes out from the Federal "Operation Chokepoint" program. That program is supposed to target payday lenders and Pornographers, but instead is targeting firearm manufacturers and sellers. It seems that the Holder Injustice Department is using Federal Financial Services Regulators to harass and control financial service providers through intimidation.
They are targeting the very providers whom they deem have 'relationships' with legal but 'high risk' businesses. The original program was set to target businesses such as pay day lenders, escort services, porn producers, and sellers of drug paraphernalia. It was presented in that way so it would gain approval in the political arena so politicians could point to it and say look what I'm fighting even though though all those businesses are severely regulated and completely legal but not socially acceptable to most Americans.
Originally in the minds of the uninformed and low information citizens, it seemed a laudable if not overdue project. However, in practice there was nothing within it to limit it to those practices nor even to insure that it would be used against them in other than a cursory manner. What is beginning to float to the surface on this is the DOJ and their controlled minions are leaning on lending banks to coerce them to stop lending to firearms sellers, manufacturers, and the same for ammunition manufacturers who sell to the public, evidently those who sell only to the government are exempt from the harassment. The basis behind this is the Regulators will cause the banks to sever relationships with the businesses and force those businesses out of business.
Where the hell does the Government come off destroying a legitimate and perfectly legal business just to satisfy an Unconstitutional Agenda to ban civilian ownership of firearms? The Obama Administration has always held the American Public in disdain for their beliefs on Liberty and rule by Constitutional Law. Since it has not gotten it's corrupt plans to disarm the public through Congress it is trying to subvert the laws of the land to achieve it's dastardly ideals and impost them on Law Abiding Americans.
In case you are wondering, the NRA reported on this last January ( http://www.nranews.com/commentators/video/iain-murray-private-lendi... ), and even Breitbart commented in January ( http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/01/09/Congressman-Issa... ) citing Rep. Darrell Issa who is the chairman of the House oversight and reform committee, and Rep. Jim Jordan who is chairman of the Economic Growth Subcommittee, of sending Holder a letter demanding further information on the program.
In the letter, Issa and Jordan stated, "the [House Oversight and Government Reform] Committee is concerned that both the goal and mechanisms of Operation Choke Point may constitute a serious mismanagement and abuse of the Department's FIRREA [Financial Institution Reform and Recovery Act of 1989] authority."
The NRA in a follow up report ( http://www.nranews.com/commentators/video/andrew-langer-operation-c... ) in the NRA news in April interviewed Andrew Langer ( Institute for Liberty) who said the program was expanding. The House Committee on Financial Services held a hearing ( http://financialservices.house.gov/calendar/eventsingle.aspx?EventI... ) where concerns over 'Operation Chokepoint' were expressed from both sides of the aisle. The NRA even has listings of banks like 'Bank of America' that have severed their relationships with the firearms industry ( http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2012/nra-investigating-s... ). It's not only banks that are acceding to the intimidation of the corrupt Administration on this subject. Services like Google Shopping, E-Bay, Craigslist, and Pay-Pal are now refusing to host listings for sales of firearms or ammunition.
Various Progressive millionaire funded Anti-Gun groups have had varying degrees of success ( http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2014/3/anti-gunners-want... ) and ( http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2014/3/anti-gunners-want... ) and it has also been reported ( http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2014/3/anti-gunners-want... ) that that arch Anti-Gun Millionaire Michael Bloomberg through his recently accquired anit-gun franchise "Mom's demand action for gun sense in America".
Bloomberg has used his massive fortune to also help fund his pet project Mayors against guns, and his rabidly anti-gun mayors have advanced plans to use city contracts ( http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2014/3/anti-gunners-want... ) to impose their personal gun control wishes even with the usual hard push back from their Police Departments. Even some pension plans have fallen victim to the Anti gun attacks ( http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2014/3/anti-gunners-want... ). The NRA has affirmed their intent to continue monitoring the events as they transpire and keep the American public informed like they have on these issues, ( http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2014/3/anti-gunners-want... ) ( http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2014/3/anti-gunners-want... ) ( http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2014/3/anti-gunners-want... ).
The public needs to be made aware of all of these infringements on our Constitutionally protected Liberties and Freedoms the corrupt and ideologically inimical Administration is perpetrating on the American public through the auspices of the DOJ to give them the color of law. Remember that in opposition to that corrupt Administration, the Firearm industry is experiencing an unprecedented growth in it's sales. That is a thumb to the nose so to speak to Obama and the Progressives who want to disarm us and impose a gun ban agenda.

|Another Idiots are us thread:
The Gun industry is experimenting with "Smart" locks for your weapons. That way you can secure/not secure them and the only person who can fire that weapon is one wearing the Security device/bracelet/ring/glove.
Isn't it nice when Canadians come down here and teach "Patriots " how to be "American!!"
