Police said a 36-year-old man pumped gas into a black suv while his girlfriend entered the convenience store to purchase a drink for her 5-year-old daughter, who sat in the vehicle. To their horror, a carjacker approached and shot the man without warning, causing him to fall to the ground. The carjacker attempted to enter the vehicle and speed off with the young girl inside. Wounded but unwilling to surrender his life, the suv's owner, who has a concealed-carry permit, drew his handgun and fired numerous shots at the carjacker, killing him. The suv owner was in serious condition but was expected to recover. The young girl was not injured. (The Detroit News, Detroit, Mich., 10/20/10)

The Second Amendment states "...the right to keep and bare arms as a militia". What is the definition and boundaries of a militia?

The government is not doing the right thing - we are not serfs we are actually the employers of the corporations and government. This knowledge has escaped many who are cheating the American public. It has to stop please.

I like to see open carry in each state. Peoplke think twice when I am in a store and they want to hold it up. I took lessons with my gun and know the laws.

The U.S. Constitution is the Supreme law of the land. It is untouchable. If a corrupt government starts messing around with our rights given to U.S. by the founding feathers of this great nation then all hell will break loose. The government will fall!

We need to have right to bear arms however ,I don't feel our arms need to be outside of our homes. This isn't like when the right was made. If you hunt you need a licese to carry with you and it is at certain times. If you have a collection , it needs to be lockedup and registered. That is my opinion.

I am against guns. My nephew like countless of victims died by a gun. A man walking into his place of employment shot him and along with a customer in the head. This was in a mall back in the 80's. He was 21. Consideration needs to be made. It is to common to hear of a shooting. Guns at home to protect the home. It should not be ok to carry just to carry and cause damage.

Gun Control is about Control. Exclude the gun free zone States and crimes with guns are down to the lowest level in 20 years. Law abiding citizens have the right by God to defend ourselves and our families. The US government recognized that right. FBI studies show Extended Background Checks won't work without Federal Gun Registration. The Communist Socialists haven't come to the point in their incremental steps to call for that- not yet. We have the right to defend our families. Crime just takes seconds. Law enforcement takes minutes. History has shown, remove a people's ability to defend themselves and invite tyrants to commit expedient genocide (Death by Gun Control- Zelman & Stevens, ISBN 0-9602304-6-1). If the camera lit, tear eyed Obama wishes to save children why doesn't he enforce the current laws? Or STOP giving taxpayer money to support the MURDER of 1million babies/year? Why does he print money until it won't be worth its value to burn? Why does a paper pushing agency like Department of Homeland Security need 7,000 bullets/ every man, woman and child in the US? Why is DHS ordering targets of elderly couples, pregnant women and children? Why are laws being written to confuse law abiding citizens in the legal use of their firearms and label them felons; making them legally unable to own a gun? Why does the Vise President of the US say after being asked why DHS needs so many bullets, he says it's about time his guys have more ammo than American citizens? Why is there even a question about whether US citizens can be targeted by drones because the President says he has a suspicion about them? Why does DHS say President Obama and his officials can decide which laws to enforce and which not? Why does he ask for and get unconstitutional powers against the American people and justifies it by saying he'll never use them? Why are servicemen being asked if they will fire on citizens who will not give up their guns; if they say- no are being released from the service? Mr. Obama needs to be impeached!
