If you are signing a petition to take away my rights I think I should be able to have a say on it.
ETA: If I were posting petitions to ensure women's health rights, or petitions against religion there would be backlash I am certain. I am not looking to debate the issue of the God given rights that I have. I am merely telling why this petition and others like it are treasonous against the Constitution and what this country was founded on. If you can not handle other peoples opinions then posting such things in an open forum is wrong. And as you said this is a BIRTH BOARD and this petition has nothing to do with birth or children. If you feel so strongly against my (and other law abiding citizens) owning a gun that you feel the need to petition our government about it, THEN IT IS MY DUTY TO STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR MY RIGHT.
Also, just because you are not interested in hearing my opinion doesn't mean others aren't, or that others do not agree, or that someone isn't on the fence and may want to hear the opinion of a law abiding citizen for the continued legalization of guns.
No, we don't want to hear you're opinion...we don't know you. We've known each other a long time, so if one of us wants to post something like this on OUR board, we have every right to do so. Yes, you have every right to your opinion, but it's not welcome here.
