Considering the fact a majority of Americans own no guns, coupled the fact the overwhelming majority of Americans don't view leaving their house or apartment as a reason to strap on a gun, this whole argument that guns are good or more guns make us safer is ridiculous. More guns means more deaths and injuries like above, nothing else.

I'd like to see the Republican Party stand up to the NRA, but they appear weak and incapable whenever the opportunity presents itself, like now in Congress. On the plus side, the Georgia legislators did listen to the overwhelming majority of Georgia citizens and ignore the special interest groups and shot down (excuse the pun) the proposed law change permitting guns in churches, bars, courthouses, on campus, etc. That was nice to see.

BTW, Happy Easter! Leave you guns are home this weekend and spend some quality time with your love ones or doing some good deeds, or both. I'm sure Jesus wasn't all that into guns.

My guns are for sport and self/home defense. My firearms are not a threat unless you threaten me or mine. My carry sidearm has stopped bad things from happening to my family before.... and I didn't even shoot anyone, but there were no cops around when these 'events' occured. When the police did arrive it was just to take my statement.

If you don't like guns, don't buy one.
If you don't believe in abortion, don't have one.
If you don't like Big Gulp-sized fountin Cokes, don't drink one.

I do not require or desire anyone (politician or otherwise) telling me what guns I should or shouldn't have OR how many bullets I can put into my magizines. I'm MUCH more qualified to make that decision for myself.

Luke 22:35-38....“But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one..." Jesus was preparing his disciples for his departure after the last supper and he wanted them armed aginst robbers and assassians. Jesus prescribed the sword here because during his earthly ministry, the disciples were protected by an extraordinary providence. This, however, was about to change.

Happy Easter, Jesus has risen!

Since I seem to recall Jay saying a while back he had two guns himself, which by some accounts would firm up the findings that stupid people are indeed attracted to guns. Interesting.
Six, actually. Try to keep up.

Back to Bible study for you, sir. The events in the Garden of Gethsemane and the commands of Jesus there teach the Apostles nonaggression, so Luke 22:36 does not permit violence. He said to Peter: "For all who draw the sword will die by the sword" (Matt. 26:52). Peter and the others heard those words that clarify the use of swords. Therefore, a lifestyle of the sword must not be part of the disciples’ new walk with the resurrected Christ, as they preached his message of hope.

In layman's terms, get rid of your guns and swords. You cannot walk with Christ packing a weapon. Violence begets violence. Period. It's an easy concept.

Reminds me of leaving the house just to get drug info from the cops. Ever do that? But, I don't do that.

Ok then, six guns for you. I rest my case. The intellectually challenged are indeed attracted to guns. The rest of us, not so much.

In 2011 47% of households had a gun according to a gallop pole. This is the highest since 1993. With all the craziness over the past several months, it statistically should be over 50% now. Of course the "majority" of Americans do not own guns when you include children in the mix. That is why one should like at households.

Aggression is necessary when protcting you and yours from evil. If you are not prepared to protect your family from invaders, robbers, etc., then I believe you have moraly failed them.

the teachings of Christ are of peace, but those teachings do not disallow the protection from the evil of this world. It is an easy concept.

I'll stretch it and say if everyone kept the guns at home (locked up and safe from kids) and used them for protection only, that'd be ok. But the fact is gun nuts don't.

We need stronger gun laws and restrictions. Another good example why is this guy who followed a guy who cut him off in traffic about 30 minutes, gets out punches the guy, the guy gets out and kicks the guys ass. Then the followers wife hands the guy on the ground a gun. Guy fires several rounds into the pickup. All on video no less (except the firing part because the videographer was in the truck hauling ass).

Yea, another smart, responsible gun owner, sure, you all are. Right. Until you're not. Which is way too often.

Uh, remember way up thread the discussion about enforcing the existing laws? Both the guy and his wife should face felony charges, with a few years in the slammer to contemplate the poor choices they made.

fat chance of that especially if he's a republican. all "responsible gun owners" walk after stuff like this and "accidental discharges" of their guns. no one is ever held accountable. just read the papers.

I would love to see all non-gun owners post their name and addresses and then wait one year and see how many become gun owners.

Let me at them, they are risk free fun. The more people are disarmed, the safer my job becomes. I always vote for the politician who is for gun control. They can't and will not enforce criminal laws against criminals. But,law abiding citizens will disarm when told to by their leaders. What a life, I love my political leaders so much.

So you are proposing more laws, that will most likely be ignored, because our justice system isn't enforcing the existing laws?

That is a stupid argument. ".... especially if he's a republican."?

He wasn't a "responsible gun owner"...
