It is a tradition, but that's not the reason I support it. I believe it is a basic human right to defend oneself, one's family, and one's property.Do you believe in the right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and do you believe in preserving Americans' Second Amendment right to own and use firearms?
That's why South Carolina's laws and Ohio's laws have differences.Would you believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation? But you know that what works in Columbus may not work in Charleston, SC.
The extent of "acting responsibly" is in not using your gun to commit crimes. As long as I don't commit crimes with my guns, I need no further regulation.Would you be willing to work to enact and enforce commonsense laws and improvements - like closing the gun show loophole, improving our background check system, and reinstating the assault weapons ban, so that guns do not fall into the hands of criminals.
Acting responsibly and with respect for differing views on this issue.
Not true. I called the cops IMMEDIATELY after running them off. If I had called first, they may well have succeeded in stealing something. The goal was stopping the crime, not shooting someone. And as that was accomplished without injury or loss of life, all the better. Oh, and guess what. They haven't been back, so it also worked as a preventative.Poor TonyD2, we haven't heard anything out of him. While two would be thieves try to break into his shed, he raises a window. If you don't mind, I have a gun. I will give you 30 minute head start, then I plan on calling the cops.
So skedaddle, I dont want to have to hurt you. After several minutes go by, TonyD2 calls the cops. TonyD2 didnt want the cops to catch the thieves, so he wouldnt have to testify in court.
