Reno was as ineffective as an Attorney General as she was as a prosecutor here in Miami. Her only answer was to confiscate arms because she was frustrated with her own incompetence. Read the history, Janet; do the research. The only way to reduce violent crime is to uphold the 2nd Amendment!

    Janet Reno is obviously un-American! Jeff Snyder's quote from yesterday sums it up well. http://quotes.liberty-tree.ca/quote_blog/Jeff.Snyder.Quote.653E "But to ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow. ... For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals. Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding."

    Gun registration may not be enough to try "Torchem Reno" for treason but, it would be a good start.

    Reno is exactly right on this point, as evidenced by the wacko defense attempted to justify personal ownership of every weapon under the sun... when will they try to claim that personal ownership of nuclear weapons is a must to protect their homes and lives? The only problem with the quote is that it does not tell us what IS enough...

    Reno is a killer. Her weapons of choice include guns, other people's guns. She could be found guilty of certain high crimes.

    No, it's too much.

    Gun registration is never enough for jack-booted thugs whose minions burn people alive, whose snipers shoot babes in their mother's arms, and kidnap small children and send them to totalitarian communist regimes.
     -- Ken, Allyn, WA     
    It's a start -- toward totalitarianism and genocide.

    Reston....with all due respect, reducing something to the absurd is not very becoming....which by the way, does nothing for your credibility... It never ceases to amaze me as to why someone would not want someone else to have the ability to defend themselve...unless maybe, (should I say this) that person really wants power. Golly gee!!! That is exactly what the founding fathers were concerned about and the reason they put in the 2nd amendment. Nuff Said.

    This lady is a hell of a lot smarter than all the trigger happy, toothless hilbilies on this site.
