You shouldn't. Gun control gets innocent people killed.<quoted text>
I agree with you on gun control.
Why? It keeps us a free nation. It's our last line of defense of freedom.<quoted text>It is insane that so many people legally have guns in the USA,
Why not? Just about everyone I know has a semiauto rifle, and no one's been killed. I own a Beretta 92F and a Glock 19; no one's been killed. Had I been home at the time of my break-in, though, I can tell you there would be three dead fundie terrorists.<quoted text> referring to handguns, and assault weapons (which no civilian should ever have,
An "antique" assault rifle? There's no such thing.<quoted text> except if it is an antique which is rendered useless and kept as a souvenir of his/her military experiences).
An "assault rifle" is defined by the Department of Defense as a rifle that is capable of selective fire; both semiautomatic and full auto. Civilians have been banned from owning full automatic weapons since the 1930s, so in spite of what the anti-gun nuts claim, no average civilian owns an "assault" rifle. They are strictly semiautomatic copies of assault rifles.

Our Second Amendment is not about duck hunting. No liberal wants to understand that.<quoted text> when the problems relate to human beings.
I do not oppose the ownership of rifles and shotguns which are kept for hunting, or for varmint control on a farm.
Where I live, I see a rifle rack in the back window of just about every pickup truck on the road. I don't feel in the least bit threatened.<quoted text> Can you imagine though how scary it would be if many adults walked around in a crowded city with a rile or shotgun under their arms?
I got no problem with it.<quoted text> But they think it is okay to carry a loaded handgun.
I live in Oregon. In Oregon, there is no registration of handguns, and open carry is completely legal. If what the average anti-gun nut believed was true, there would be blood in the streets here. There isn't any.
