Could the same get said about the Auto Industry, because people don't want to walk so far? Also with the Medical Industry, frear of getting sick, or not well? I understand your point. It's a supply and demand industry, no force is involved to purchase a gun, unlike medical insurance, the goverment will force you to have it or you will get taxed. A gun, you olny need to buy once. The insurance you will get forced to buy forever. Affordable insurance?

Those could be said only if you're a moron. There's no proof that being an untrained, paper-target-shooting hoser with a gun overall raises your safety, and some evidence against. Cops are bad enough with the training. A bunch of middle aged fat boys with guns getting in the middle of a gun rampage is not going to end well outside of their john wayne fantasies.

Wow, I didn't expect such a weak reply, with name calling. Just because El Paso has so many overweight people, we should not allow then to drive also? They might be to busy eating their dubble chease burger W/diet coke, instead of paying attention to driving. Again, this sould be said with many aspects of life, not just guns. Go out on the road and watch how people drive, not just in E/P everywhere. Proper training, pass a few simple driving manuvers and a test with all the answers in the book. Then give them a 2 ton weapon. Only the law obiding people will follow the laws.

Buddy, that's all it deserves. I'm not new to this topic, and I know what gun nuts are going to say. Same thing every time.

Except cars are meant as transportation first, their use as a weapon is accidental and unwanted. Gun nuttery doesn't take anyone anywhere except to the morgue. Second of all, who decides what kind of weapons we are allowed to carry, and why? Why can't I conceal a grenade? Why can't I carry a fully stocked rocket launcher in my car? The answer is because there is no grenade and rocket launcher lobby, but there is a gun lobby with a strong industry behind it wanting to get rich off fear.

Most holders only carry rarely. It's too much trouble and restricts your freedoms.
