    Hello, my name is Archie Bean. I believe that guns are terrible and that every ill-symptom of our decaying society is caused by firearms. I conveniently ignore statistics and facts that portray responsible firearm ownership in a positive light, all the while demonizing guns at every possible chance. I like to call gun owners clowns and will always say ridiculous things like “if by banning all guns we save only one life, it would be worth it.” I also hang my autographed Dianne Feinstein poster above my bed. Bottom line is people that post on this site have no business owning or possessing firearms or any one in general except for the police who can do no harm, the government because they know whats best for me and celebrities because their safety is more important than regular peoples. Because you all certainly do not know or understand the laws of America, firearms need to be banned and 2nd amendment repealed
