I am a Christian but I know that taking guns out of the hands of the people wont change anything other than the outlaws having more of an advantage given that they will have guns if they are illegal or not. It is up to parents to raise their kids in a reponsible manner if they want a less violent society. We shouldnt be relagating to government what should be done by parents.

I am a Christian and I have a CCP. I also have a nice little armory going in my home for that wayward invader. Here is how you keep college shootings down. EVERYONE is packing. Then only a person who is too chicken to kill themself will whip out their peashooter and get blasted away. Problem solved.

Agreed!

And if they are outlawed, then I will become an outlaw because I will not give them up.

Depends on where you live. But this isnt cowboy country. I know what you see on TV, but this isnt like what you see.

My imagination about people bringng guns everywhere is just like see those cowboy movies in The High Chapparal or seeing Mr Clint Eastwood or late John Wayne in their movie actions. Sorry for my exaggerated imagination.
