I will stand by our rights to defend ourselves when our defenders are not around. 911 is hardly ever in time to stop a break-in,rape , robbery or murder. A 45 can.........

Guess you want to reduce visitors. Ban guns and reduce the number of people visiting the island. Not good when the crooks are the only ones with guns.

Hell no!!!!!!!Those who think that a ban on handguns would lower crime rates need only to look at countries who restrict handgun ownership. They have the highest home invasions, assaults, and robberies why? Most criminals don't follow the law and prey on the WEAK and UNARMED citizenry that they know have no defense against their GUNS unlawfully obtained and are willing to use.

#1 - It is my right as an Amercan citizen to keep and bear arms.
#2 - I am an avid hunter who hunts for food, not trophys. My guns put better, cleaner and healthier meat on the table than you can buy at any grocery store.
#3 - They are my protection from the evils of this world. I refuse to be a victim or a statistic.

Although I don't support gun prohibition I would like to correct some of you. Guns do not make crime go down. You are morons. The only thing that has been correctly sated in this thread is that prohibition does not work.

But you can't back up your assertion. WHy is that? Ever read John Lott's book "More Guns, Less Crime"? Maybe you ought to before calling others names.

Based on what? We DO know there would be fewer people able to defend themselves against attack. Would more women getting raped and strangled be okay with you?

The law can't be everywhere at once. Your best chance of surviving a deadly attack is being able to defend yourself. Being armed and knowing how and when to use your weapon will save your life and maybe others.

If any of you who support a gun ban ever walked in your home and found your wife or young son being raped, you'd be damned glad to be carrying. And if you wouldn't, you really need to go sit somewhere quiet and figure out just what the hell is most important to you.

Absolutely not. If you take the firearms out of the hands of decent law abiding citizens then only the criminal will have them. Its absurd to punish millions of gunowners who are law abiding citizens for what criminals do. Thugs will always find a way to obtain a weapon illegally. Remember.criminals like their victims UNARMED! They are cowards. We can never ban handguns for if we do we become sitting ducks for the criminals to victimize as they please.

No, it is you who is flat wrong.

**********

"What America can learn from Switzerland is that the best way to reduce gun misuse is to promote responsible gun ownership."

In the right to bear arms debate, pro-gun Americans point to Switzerland, where almost every adult male is legally required to possess a gun. One of the few nations with a higher per capita rate of gun ownership than the United States, Switzerland has virtually no gun crime.
**********

It seems you must be listening to the anti-gun crowd. You will never get the truth from them nor the media who falsely reports.

Over 250K women a year who carried a legally owned weapon were able to stop a rape from happening.

Now that is just one category of violent crime but there are many instances when a person stopped a violent crime from happening if they were carrying a legal weapon. You name it......from home invasions...rapes....attempted kidnappings...to store owners and employees being held up at gunpoint by thugs.

Our crime rate would go sky high.......much much higher than it is now if only the criminals had weapons and a thug will always find a way to obtain a weapon.
