From the NRA: Gun Owner Blacklist Bill Introduced in U.S. House

On April 29, U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, who calls himself "a strong supporter of the war against international terrorism, both at home and abroad," introduced H.R. 2159, calling it the "Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009."

Given the bill's title, one might think that it's intended to affect terrorists. However, King and the bill's co-sponsors—Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), Mike Castle (R-Del.), Jim Moran (D-Va.), Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), Mark Kirk (D-Ill.), and Chris Smith (R-N.J.)—are extreme gun control supporters. Rather than being aimed at terrorists, H.R. 2159 is intended to give the executive branch arbitrary, unaccountable power to stop loyal Americans from acquiring firearms.

Love your blog.
I think it's time for the LGBT community to start defending America, and become intelligent gun owners themselves. Why? Intelligent gun owners not only use their weapons in a responsible manner, they live in a responsible manner.

Here's a funny music video making fun of "gun free zones from sea to sea." The vision of "New America" according to progressives:
