15. "Nobody wants to take your fucking guns away!"????
Rubbish, there are several regulars right here on this forum that either want to do so, or else make it so difficult to obtain one it would be a de facto ban.

And some of the most prominent anti-gun members of the US Congress who are Democrats: Schumer, Feinsten, Lautenberg, McCarthy.

Not to mention hypocrites like former mayor Daley, who hated guns yet demanded an armed bodyguard AFTER he left office. How many former mayors get that?
