    Columbine Survivor Pens Bold Open Letter to Obama Rejecting Gun Control: ?Whose Side Are You On?? | TheBlaze.com

    An excerpt:
    "Ban on Military-Style Assault Weapons

    The evidence is very clear pertaining to the inadequacies of the assault weapons ban. It had little to no effect when it was in place from 1994 until 2004. It was during this time that I personally witnessed two fellow students murder twelve of my classmates and one teacher. The assault weapons ban did not deter these two murderers, nor did the other thirty-something laws that they broke. Gun ownership is at an all time high. And although tragedies like Columbine and Newtown are exploited by ideologues and special-interest lobbying groups, crime is at an all time low. …

    10-Round Limit for Magazines

    Virginia Tech was the site of the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history. Seung-Hui Cho used two of the smallest caliber hand guns manufactured and a handful of ten round magazines. There are no substantial facts that prove that limited magazines would make any difference at all. Second, this is just another law that endangers law-abiding citizens. I’ve heard you ask, “why does someone need 30 bullets to kill a deer?” Let me ask you this: Why would you prefer criminals to have the ability to out-gun law-abiding citizens?

    Saw Evan Todd interviewed on FOX a couple of days ago. You won't catch him on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC or PBS because he makes sense and hits the release valve on all the gun ban hot air!

    Years ago I saw my first Acura NSX (was even being driven by a blonde hottie!!!) and naturally followed it for a bit to check it out. The license was 3M TA3. Thought it was strange until I finally passed it and looked in my rear view mirror...
