    Save American lives by ripping up both the second and fourth amendments, its all for a good cause :no:

    http://www.toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2007704250310

    The disarmament process would begin after the initial three-month amnesty. Special squads of police would be formed and trained to carry out the work. Then, on a random basis to permit no advance warning, city blocks and stretches of suburban and rural areas would be cordoned off and searches carried out in every business, dwelling, and empty building. All firearms would be seized. The owners of weapons found in the searches would be prosecuted: $1,000 and one year in prison for each firearm.

    Clearly, since such sweeps could not take place all across the country at the same time. But fairly quickly there would begin to be gun-swept, gun-free areas where there should be no firearms. If there were, those carrying them would be subject to quick confiscation and prosecution. On the streets it would be a question of stop-and-search of anyone, even grandma with her walker, with the same penalties for "carrying."

    I just read this guys article and he has to be one of the biggest idiots I've ever come accross in my life. How unrealistic is his idea? In my opinion it's a recipe for increased gun violence, not less. Not to mention abuses of power by "special squads of police". I believe some South American countries have had these special squads. They quickly get renamed terror squads.

    What amazes me is that someone like this, someone not quite in touch with reality, is a retired U.S. ambassador, is a newspaper associate editor. These are very influential positions.

    I could go on about how moronic this guy is, but it would be a waste of time. I'm sure he believes his drivel, but fortunately his viewpoint is so wacked out that I doubt anyone of even a moderate IQ would buy into his scenario.

    Here is his email address should you want to contact him about his "article": dsimpson@post-gazette.com

    All I will say is this.

    H*** NO!!!!!
    I served my country to protect the Constitution and I still do it as a civilian.

    The person who wrote this article must either be a whack job or Socialist/Communist.

    This guy has forgotten why those freedoms were documented in the first place.

    He needs to study the pre revolution era.
