I am genuinely curious as to how you came to your views on this issue, as I personally cannot see logic in your views on this gun control.
I cant find a reason to think your any less patriotic so far, than the average American is. So I am having trouble understanding what would lead you to start finding our basic right to bear arms appalling.
The average firearm owner is not the radical (sometimes mentally ill) individuals that have made the headlines for the despicable crimes on humanity. Those type of people see the firearm as a weapon in which to inflict or install what they see as justice or logical acts of violence.
Their are more deaths by accidental falls per year than their is from guns, dont believe me...
Where you live has a good deal to do with how you will die. In the United States, the top two causes of death are responsible for more than 50 percent of the annual death toll. In the world at large, there's a lot more variety in how you meet your Maker. Here is our list of the 15 most common causes of death in the United States:
Cause
Percent of Total
1. Diseases of the heart 28.5
2. Malignant tumors 22.8
3. Cerebrovascular diseases 6.7
4. Chronic lower respiratory diseases 5.1
5. Accidents (unintentional injuries) 4.4
6. Diabetes mellitus 3.0
7. Influenza and pneumonia 2.7
8. Alzheimer's disease 2.4
9. Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis 1.7
10. Septicemia (blood poisoning) 1.4
11. Suicide 1.3
12. Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis 1.1
13. Primary hypertension and hypertensive renal disease 0.8
14. Parkinson's disease (tied) 0.7
15. Homicide (tied) 0.7

I did two tours in Nam. One combat, one non-combat. I served on two carriers (USS Oriskany, USS Roosevelt). I also served some time in Subic Bay and Oahu. I had a close friend of mine take his own life in Oahu in the barracks. In Olongapo, I served MP duty once a month. We would roll up on shootings all the time off the main drag. It wasn't pretty. I've seen what guns can do - and I'm still a firm believer that if you really know what you're doing with a gun, you don't need but one shot. Handguns were made for killing - people. Not bears, deer or elk. That being said - I'm all for preserving the 2nd Ammendment. The only way to appease both sides to to tax the sh*t out of firearms and ammunition. People will pay the premium just to say they have a gun. They will also take better care of their guns, ensuring theft goes down - ultimately reducing the guns making their way into crimal hands. The money raised from the hefty taxation could be used for a miriad of things from reducing the deficit to providing cops in our schools.

I own guns - I have my service .45 field-stripped and dipped in Cosmoline. I also own a .50 cal Desert Eagle (I inherited from my uncle)- for which I only have 3 rounds left (talk about your expensive reloads!!!). I do not carry either one and do not have either one near the ammunition (my ammo box is actually at my brother's house, 25 miles away). I don't live in fear, so I don't need a gun to feel I'm safe. 8 years in the service taught me to pay a little more attention to my surroundings and always have an out.

That being said, thank you for your service - but Navy rules.

A naval combat tour?..you must have been a seal, if not I doubt you saw real combat. You should get off your high horse and not dictate how others can protect themselves. Not everyone is able to fight off an armed intruder with just their hands, especially women who may not be as physically strong as a large man. Not to mention ladies and kids are the most victimized people in society. If I was a woman I would rather shoot someone then get raped. There are many people who have no military training that know how to handle a weapon. Would you enter a combat zone with no weapon? Don't expect people in America to be unarmed in dangerous situations. In case you haven't noticed, criminals do exist and carry guns. Why should we have to
appease both sides? Screw the liberals who want to tax the crap out of everyone. A liberals answer is always to take more money. No one should have to pay extra to protect themselves. By the way, the army rules 101st.

I know of such horrible memories myself brother and it's I who thank you for your service. Without you and your brothers I would not have had the opportunity to serve my country in any form probably worth mentioning. Enjoy your weekend I'm about to do the same.

Respond and say what you will but as far as I;m concerned your kind of logic is pointless to talk with and will only expose more insane reasoning on people with weak minds whom may read your insanity.
You sir should have your brain examined!

I have hit targets three hundred yards away with a military assault rifle such as the AR15. I can almost guarantee that I couldn't do the same with a 22.

Only Cowards have Guns? Really? Tell that to the Cab Driver that was Blown away on New Years Day in Detroit for doing his Job.
Maybe the out of town elderly couple that broke down on the freeway and then robbed, car jacked and the lady was raped in the back seat by a Punk that stopped too pretend to assist them. If the husband had of been armed would he have been a Coward because he blew the sick fcukre away? Not to be mean or crude but that coulda been your Grandmother.

I respect anyone's right to become a potential victim if that's what they choose, please don't expect the rest of us too.

Logic or Lonny:

Guns are weapons of destruction.
When ever their used there's noise and damage
Guns have no perception of this, just people
People are weapons of destruction.
THEREFORE:
When people use guns against other people
Their gun should be used to 'dispose' of them
This would settle the matter permanently
If guns are "soooooo" bad, then aren't the people that use them to be =banished= also?
This would save the country millions and billions
of dollars-allow other criminal cases to be tried
expediently-lower prison expenses-kill 2 birds with
one stone/STP.
"Might make armed criminals think twice!!"

PS: They'd never be an asset to humanity anyhow!
