Gun Laws - Aiken, SC

Where does it stop if you ban or reform. Shall we ban or restrict alcohol because it causes more death than firearms via dui/cancer/etc. We tried with prohibition to no avail. How about tobacco products. Should we ban vehicles cause people die on the roadways every day. How about swimming pools for making people drown. Hold people responsible for their actions. If someone is caught with a firearm committing a crime throw the book at them.

Banning guns because they kill people is like banning forks because they make people fat. It is no accident these "crazed gunmen" select venues in which guns are banned to carry out their shooting spree. When was the last time a "crazed gunman" went on a shooting spree killing dozens of people at a firing range?

A firearm is only a tool, an unintelligent and unjudging machine made of steel and moving parts. If guns were to no longer exist, people would find other means to kill people. People have been killing others long before the firearm was invented.

There are more than enough laws already, it is failures in carrying them out that leads to criminals possessing guns. The system is overwhelmed and not effective.

I just think it is ironic that many other things kill far more people in our country than firearm related homicide and there is zero to few calls to reform or get rid of them. When you see some driver of a mass transit bus plow into traffic on the news cause they were texting it is never followed by headlines to ban buses. For all the people who want to ban and regulate read the constitution.

Nor do they try to ban texting while driving buses.
