    Yeah but very few people intentionally use a car as a weapon. I'd ban cigarettes, too!!!!!!!!

    I attended a soccer match in Leeds in the 1990s where two people were stabbed in the abdomen and a third hit in the thigh with a dart.
    And if every fan at the match had a gun, would the two stabbings and the "darting" have been prevented? Although that's the kind of thing that gun advocates insist would occur, it's very difficult for me to even imagine. Soccer in the UK and many other parts of the world elevates human emotion to a level approaching hatred (and maybe even reaching it) for the other team and its fans. Tens of thousands of riled up fans of opposing teams in the same stadium, in combination with guns -- it's a recipe for disaster.

    Having everybody armed at a soccer match where everybody is drunk and hate the other team has no relation to having a gun in your home to protect your family.

    and no one is saying give all of them guns, but if such ppl want a gun to protect themselves in their home, doing some target shooting and maybe hunting.....where is the issue....hell even in Montana where we have extreamly lax gun laws, even if i have a concealed carry permit(which means i get finger printed, have a full background check AND need the county sheriff to sign off on it) i still cant carry said firearm into a school, bank or i believe establishment such as a bar where hard alcohol is served(though i think a resturant with a beer/wine licence is ok)

    Is there any law in any state that restricts guns to an owner's home, or to target shooting or hunting? If there is, does it work?

    well there was in DC till yesterday....a lawsuit has been filed in Chicago over it yesterday after the SC desision....im sure one is sure to follow in New York City as well as in others....Atlanta comes to mind as another.......the bans did nothing to prevent criminals from getting guns but it made criminals out of ppl who's only intent was to have a firearm in their house that was easily accesible for defence....Heller was willing to go through a permit process to get a gun to defend himself in his own home and DC refused to allow him that....so it went to court and worked its way up to the supreme court that said DC HAS to allow him to be able to protect himslef in his own house with a handgun.....

    I think you need to read again the DC law that was struck down. But it seems that your misconceived notion of the DC law is what you are supporting -- at times, anyway.

    if such ppl want a gun to protect themselves in their home, doing some target shooting and maybe hunting.....where is the issue....

    i think you misunderstand......the DC law that was struck down stated that handguns are illegal with in city limits and any long guns outside of a safe must either be disassembled OR have a trigger lock........
