It is not the guns in society that are a problem, it is the socety the guns are in.

Society needs to do a better job of identifying and treating mental illness. It also needs to end the glorification of violence. If we can do that, then it won't matter how many assault rifles people own, the violence will decrease.

If we don't do that, then people will still die, from blades, or bricks or bare hands...

Where I live there was just an article in the paper about an increase in unlawful discharges of firearms in public by people with PERMITS.

I.E. its the number of guns, NOT the people.

The ones pushing gun bans are protected by hired armed security. Easy to holler about banning something when you are the recipient of the benefits of the very item you are seeking to outlaw.

Iraq vet: Newtown changed my mind on gun control

I'm a hunter and a vet, and I revere the Second Amendment. But I used bankrupt logic: It's time for gun control

Feel free to turn in any gun you own. It's your choice.

A hunter and a war vet???? I would think most vets would know enough about the constitution and the second amendment to realize it has nothing to do with hunting but has everything to do with the security of a free state. I wonder if that war vet would choose a semi automatic ar 15 over a fully automatic M 16 if he ever had to go into batttle again? All of the current and past soldiers I know would never say...Oh yeah let me have that ar15 that only looks like a fully automatic weapon if given the choice. I also wonder what kind of car that war vet drives? And if he drinks. Since over 9000 people are killed each year on the roads due to drinking will he never drink again? And since over 10000 people each year are killed on the roads attributed to speeding will he only buy a car that does 70MPH. Where is the outrage from the left? GM makes a number of cars that go faster than 150mph. The Ford mustang does 155. The Dodge charger does 146. A number of foreign cars like the 300Z all do better that twice the legal speed limit of 70 and speeding is responsible for over 10000 deaths a year but no demands from the left about doing anything about it. In a nation where the speed limit is 70 why would nayone need a car that does 140-180??? Cars that do 70-80 are designed for transportation...cars that do twice that are designed for speeding. It would be a safe to say that many of those 10000 people killed were innocent children but again no outrage from the left. Lets not forget about motorcycles like the Ninja.

No, you simply know jack. When you become a soldier, your ID changes and so does your status.

You're not considered civilian.

I know because I served.

So the "brainwash" slogan doesn't work. try something else next time.

That won't stop you from a bullet nor does it mean you have the skills to survive .
