Perhaps I should have clarified, "anybody here on this forum".
As I have said earlier, I am sure there are probably just as many genuine anti-gun nuts out there as there are gun nuts who think there should be NO restrictions..Are any from either extreme commenting here? I know I haven't suggested we ban all guns.
Thank you for the quotes though. I noticed the quote from Obama was from the 90`s....is this still his stance today? In any event he was elected into office, so are you suggesting that most people agree with him?
I admit I had never heard of Diane Feinstein, so I quickly googled her...Do you suppose she said that comment before or after she succeeded the former mayor who was assassinated?
As for brainwashing, I certainly don`t agree...that takes a page out of the NRA handbook...although I think it wouldn`t hurt if the US changed its way of thinking about guns...and probably more. ;)

[quotes] anybody actually saying that we should ban ALL GUNS?
"If I could have banned them all - 'Mr. and Mrs. America turn in your guns` - I would have!" - Diane Feinstein
â€œI donâ€™t believe people should to be able to own guns.â€ - Barack Obama (during conversation with economist and author John Lott Jr. at the University of Chicago Law School in the 1990s)
"We just have to be repetitive about this. It`s not enough to have a catchy ad on a Monday and then only do it every Monday. We have to do this every day of the week and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way." - Eric Holder

So, after changing the definition of "assault rifle", now the US is also changing the definition of "regulated"? What's next, spelling changes of common English words like colour? ;)
Seriously tho, I am we`ll aware that the second amendment acknowledges and protects an individual`s right to own a firearm. I am also aware that it doesn`t specify exactly what types of firearms...is anybody actually saying that we should ban ALL GUNS?
More importantly, I also know that while many governments make similar acknowledgements, there isn`t usually as much emphasis on it....Do you really teach your children that one of their most important rights is to own a firearm when they get older? It seems that many adults have a difficult time understanding the context of it all, so why expect a child to?
