You're correct. But we do not live in Utopia. We always have and we always will have needless deaths, be it from guns, bows and arrows, cars, baseball bats, etc.

I recognize that people who do not own guns are afraid of them. Their logic does indeed come from sources that are silly, like Hollywood or video games.

Then we have INSANE people either stealing guns or have someone else purchase them to commit mayhem, and suddenly all gun owners who have never as much as gotten a speeding ticket are now evil people.

What we are witnessing is classic mass hysteria.

See, that's what people say when they don't have a real answer. The reason that you can't answer the question about why you might need an assault rifle is simple: you can't, because you have no need of one.
Someone obviously has to assess your needs, because you're obviously not adult enough to do it yourself. You're like a child with a box of cookies; you simply don't know when enough is enough.

So, I should be able to own a mortar and flamethrower, because people die falling in the shower..

Your logic is childish.

Yeah...you'll tell the Whitehouse to "blow you", right up until you realize that your federal aid gets cut...then your Governor will stand at attention and say, "Yes, sir!".

I have lost a family member to gun shot, am I sad & pist off ? Hell ya! Is any death funny? Hell no it's terrible.i am mad at the person only, & he will probably be let out in 10 to 20 years in stead of the death penelity Like most criminals. Most of them will kill again R judicial system is weak & I hope every 1 agrees.is there a lot of crazies out there ? Hell ya! Lets fix these problems 1st because that is the REAL problem.most people that goes after guns hate them.if u want the killings 2slow down let's start with these 2 1st.even if there was no guns in the US the criminals & crazies would find another way to kill people.if u don't think this is true then I truly feel sorry for u for being so simple minded & not trying to solve a serious problem we have 2 day

Why shouldn't I be allowed to own a flamethrower and mortar? After all, more people are killed every year during rough sex than by flamethrowers. I suppose you think we should ban rough sex?

I have rights, you know. It's my God-given right to own a flamethrower and mortar, and I don't have to give you a reason, because its in the Constitution.

I'm a responsible flamethrower and mortar owner...why should I be penalized because someone else might use theirs to commit a crime?

You know, keeping flamethrowers and mortars out of the hands of honest, hard-working Americans is just the first step to living under a tyrannical (and maybe NAZI) regime!!!!!

More people were killed last year with legally-owned rifles than were killed with flamethrowers in the last ten years.

That's just a straight-up fact. So, how in the world can you deny my right to own a flamethrower and mortar?

Does that explain rushed gun laws passed before they are even read? Does that explain why Obama surrounds himself with children at his antigun press conference?

Those children were nothing more than props in a play to tug at the heartstrings of the uninformed voter who is Ostupid's base.

It's funny that when the NRA uses emotions to forward their cause, you gun-nuts eat it up with a spoon; but when someone else does it, you get all bent of shape.

When the NRA and gun-nuts use stories of black men raping white women to to promote the arming of America, you're fine with it...but when 20 kids get slaughtered by one of your assault weapons, suddenly, it's exploitation!

Sorry...it's a double-edged sword.

I just saw the most retarded post ever on the topic.....actually calling the NRA a racist organization ....way to play the race card, el douche... Liber ! It won't work. Nobama , raised by his grandmama .......ain't got a chance in haitis to take away our second amendment .....we need to fight back and get the truest meaning enforced. No reason why I should not have access to whatever weapons I can afford so long as I am not a criminal.

Would it have made you feel better if the family member would have been stabbed in the eye with an eyes pick or gutted like a deer with a knife instead of being shot?
