How to use gun in a sentence?

  1. Jay Tabb:

    There's a high degree of interest in some individuals from both spectrums in the ongoing debate around gun rights, around ethnic and racial issues, that potentially has them coming to that event on Monday and might end up with some sort of criminal activity for which they might be arrested.

  2. Tom Fitton:

    This material shows that the IRS‘ cover-up began years ago, we now have smoking-gun proof that top officials in the Obama IRS unlawfully harassed taxpayers just to keep them from complaining to Congress about IRS‘ targeting and abuse. No wonder the Obama IRS has had such little interest in preserving or finding Lois Lerner’s emails.

  3. Donald Trump:

    People don't realize we have very strong background checks right now, if you go in to buy a gun, you have to sign up.

  4. John Soto:

    It's funny, when you go out to a parade ... they're in the background; they're nice and relaxed. As soon as the crowd picks up, they really show, we had one horse in particular, one of the lead horses, who was just the quietest thing. But whenever he knew it was time to go, he was all there -- heads up and pulling like a son of a gun!

  5. Alan Gottlieb:

    This is an abuse of power by the Massachusetts attorney general, it is no different than President Obama’s illegal anti-gun executive orders. If these firearms were legal yesterday, they are legal today, Alan Gottlieb said in an email to FoxNews.com. This ban on semi-auto firearms must be stopped before gun prohibitionists in other states try to enact similar bans by fiat, Alan Gottlieb said. The debate is the latest example of the long-running argument between Second Amendment purists and gun control advocates about whether new firearms laws make people safer. Indeed, the fact that Massachusetts has so few murders committed using assault weapons could be seen as evidence that the original ban was successful. The enforcement notice from the attorney general says a weapon is considered a copy or duplicate if its internal operating system is the same as those of a specifically-banned weapon or if the gun has key functional components that are interchangeable with those of a banned weapon. Such weapons would include copies of the Colt AR-15 and the Kalishnikov AK-47, which are both prohibited by the state's assault weapons ban. Healey's office claims gun makers produce and sell what they call.
