I put your question to my husband...ex Royal Artillery.
His answer was he could not understand anybody having the
need to own or carry a weapon.
Would he feel the same if every criminal was armed and may be willing to kill you?

<quoted text>She was very lucky she wasn't harmed. I would shoot anyone breaking in my home. I would assume he was armed and my life was at risk. Our two countries see things very differently. Self defense is a right here. Here criminals all have guns and are much more likely to kill the witness
Do you know what Denny. I think your country is running scared.
It is a mistake to ASSUME. Assumptions cost lives.

El,
Isn't today's news a turn up for the books..
the detail of Jimmy Savile,
I still can't imagine how 'twas all
kept so quiet through all the years he was
offending;
I know there were whispers here
and there but nothing prepared folks for what's
come out now.
Just very sad AND serious.
I know Grace...it's absolutely disgusting. Hospices?
It beggars belief.
What a legacy to leave behind.

If he thought like that I would think he was paranoid.

<quoted text>Well I know there is less chance of being shot in England. Our criminals are more apt to kill a witness. They say the first person you kill puts you in the chair so the rest are free. I do carry a small knife with me in England and I am not sure it is legal because it has a locking blade. The blade is only 2 inches but I am not sure about the lock being OK. I show my friends my gun license and they can't believe it because it is so foreign to them
Remind me not to rub you up the wrong way! LOL!

Chicago had 500 murders last year and guns are illegal but most of those murders were done with guns

I am a gentle soul just like I am here El. When you carry a gun you never lose your temper and you try to walk away from any altercation. People at gun shows are very very polite :)

I remember years ago when someone in the UK stabbed a bunch of school children. The thing I hate are the emotional reactionary laws that are passed. We had a case of someone driving his car into a bunch of people and killing and injure several people. You didn't see a rush to ban cars. People say why do you need a 30 round magazine. Well why do you need a car that will go over 100 ? I am not a fan of big mags but it does no good to restrict them. A gun with a 10 round mag is no more deadly than a gun with a 10 round mag. All this uproar has resulted in a huge run on gun store . The prices have doubled. The shelve are empty. Some store are completely out of ammo. I bought a bolt action .223 target rifle because the ammo is cheap and you can't find any. Back ordered! My interest in guns is not how many rounds I can fire fast. I am a target shooter and interested in perfection of putting each round through the same hole

I am totally aware of that Denny, I think I am a good judge of character even from afar. It was just my little joke...:)

<quoted text>Thanks DC.
I knew of a guy that went moose hunting in Alaska. Not only did he have the required rifle, he also sported a long barrel .357 with a scope. It was for bears!
A gun like a tool...
I asked my 16 year old daughter about gun control. She like her mom thinks they all should go away. I then asked, what about shooting competitions ala Olympics!? How quiet she became!
They don't use Uzis and AK 47s in the Olympics.

My friend came back from tours in Iraq and Afghanistan ----- showed us pictures and in one he is holding a gun more than half the length of his body...... he is over 6 feet tall. THAT kind of weapon does not belong on the streets and in the neighborhoods anywhere. There is no legitimate reason for it.

Denny, lots of folks are screaming for gun control. Have you heard anything about gun control from minorities in inner cities or other major metropolitan areas? Two black males here in Columbus, Ohio have already been statistics! How many more in Detroit, Chicago, Dallas, etc.?
Where are the leaders of those communities?
Just sayin'...
Enjoy the film.
They are out in the streets of Chicago fairly often trying to turn the tide for the good it does. And they don't just gather after someone is killed, they gather for vigils regularly.

<quoted text>It is a shame that people are looking for easy fixes to problems. There is no gun control that could have stopped the last mass shooting. What could have reduced the number killed would have been an armed person or persons in the school. The idea of a gun free zone only stops people who obey the law
The gun someone is holding for defense can be used to injure or kill him.....just saying

Hi Brighteyes. Two things I always admit: I was born talking & haven't shut up since; and my friends love me either because of or in spite of myself!

<quoted text>to carry is up to each state ... not the Federal government

militia was to come to your neighbors mutual aid ...

now we have the state police per each state... so put your musket down....we have a standing military force to some to the mutual aid ... really doesn't make a diff if your weapon fires one round or a 100 rounds ....gun restrict [state law] differ

Federal covers the buy/sell/trade/transport of firearms

a person in Florida may not carry in New York ... states have no uniform codes , such as say drinking age/ voting age etc etc etc
TKY tally. I kind of thought the police force and standing military made the whole militia thing a moot point.
