    your right, i did say that. they had no right.

    those other issues are much different, and also, guns kill people, gay marriage, freedom of religion, free speach, etc, doesn't.

    and you don't need a gun to defend yourself.

    if the criminal has a gun how am i to defend myself? guns dont kill ppl ppl kill ppl. i read a story one time about a guy who tried to buy a gun to kill his wife. well there was a 3 day waiting period for the hand gun so he bought an axe instead and went home and hacked her up.

    SURE!! we could live just like that other small peacefull country in Europe who's leader took away the right to bear arms in the 40's. Now what was the name of that country?
    OH YEAH !!! GERMANY!! well they were peacefull until a ruthless Hitler took away the peopls right to defend themselves aginst oppresion. And once the people lost their ability to defend themselves aginst govt. Government it gladly began thinking for them. How would you defend you're self. I'd be carefull who I gave control to.

    man i should think before i hit the post button. you forget the right to bare arms protects all your other freedoms. a gun has been the most effective means of defence for over 100 years.

    Sorry but I don't get three wishes.

    I live in Texas which is like the wild west of gun control. We even have a gated community in which ONLY regestered gun owners can live (serously it's in the deed restrictions). Guess how many houses get broken into. Here, it is within you're rights to use maximum force at night on you're own property.

    Besides JLAP most people who own a regestered firearm don't use it to commit crimes. This bill does nothing to stop the black market access most criminals have.

    I should point out here that there are a lot of thriving democracies that don't allow, or severely restrict, private gun ownership. They aren't all Nazi Germany just because they don't want guns all over the place. It is this overblown rhetoric that hurts the cause of gun ownership.

    I support the RTKABA. I don't own a gun, and don't feel the need to, but I like the option. However, on the scale of importance in the Bill of Rights, it's towards the bottom for me; totally essential 200 years ago, and not necessarily so now. Nevertheless, it's still there and should be taken seriously until it's repealed.

    i agree, capslock.

    i never said that owning guns isn't an option, i said we would be better without them.

    and you don't need a gun to defend yourself. ever heard of tasers, stun guns, and mace?

    i guess i'm just too liberal for my own good lol.

    I think there's an inherent right to defend oneself. And overthrowing a corrupt government is ONE of the legitimate reasons for having gun ownership.

    However, like I said, I think there's quite a bit of fantasy going on when people pretend they really need a gun for everyday safety in the US today. One really doesn't. I am more concerned with a breakdown in society when considering gun ownership, and if I decided to get one, I'd lock it up very securely until such a situation called for it. Having an easily accessible gun in the home seems more dangerous than helpful, imo. For home protection from petty criminals, I think my Luiseville Slugger is more than adequate.
