Totally in favor of a ban on guns...it's worked great in other countries and has reduced the death toll caused by guns.
Really, please offer up some statistics. Name the countries where guns were permitted, then a ban on guns actually reduced gun violence.

@Kozzy: Do a little research! In England, Australia and Canada, they have all but outlawed handguns and deaths by gun have INCREASED!! Criminals like it when guns are outlawed, because they know they won't have any resistance. Criminals will always have guns...why won't you anti-gunners get that? Oh, yeah...you don't care what the facts say. Facts just get in the way of your agenda.

If you are legally securing your guns...they won't protect you in the case of someone trying to knock down your door, as they would be locked up and the ammunition would be in a separate place....are you storing your weapons illegally?

I oppose any black and white ban on firearms. I would support a form of regulation, but on this site no one is open minded enough to understand so I won't bother going into any details of what I think would be reasonable. Other countries have done this with success but I refuse to allow the criminals to have a leg up on good decent citizens in this country.

When I am dead and cold..... maybe then you can have them, but I doubt it. There are many many more like me who would pick it up to fight you with before you get to it.

Ask the family of the subway guy in charlotte who thugs tried to rob and were shot for their efforts. Is banning a way to defend yourself should be banned,

Where has it been done successfully? In Canada, Australia and in the UK, handguns have been all but outlawed. The crime rate went thru the roof!! Hitler disarmed the Jews...look what happened. Our Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution and added the 2nd Amendment for a reason. Thomas Jefferson wrote "The most important reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is the ability to defend themselves from tyranny in government". You think about that for a while...

Gun Control is stupid and moreover does not work. Crooks will always get guns even if they are illegal hence the name "Crooks". Gun Control of any measure merely infringes on people who obey the law. If a thug can get a hand gun I wan't a Mark 19 to defeat him. just sayin

Look at Toronto's violent crime rate for 2010. It's much lower than any comparable city in the U.S. Initially crime sky rockets but thats because they go with an outright ban. With an enforcable regulation on firearms you can take the gun from the criminals or at least make it harder for them to retain those guns, while leaving the law abiding citizen his right to protect himself. I will never give up my guns, but as an LEO I get tired of seeing these "thugs" that have been through the system enough to know how to skirt the law and therefore I "by law" have to let the joker walk away gun and all.
