Banning guns only keeps them out of the hands of the people who obtain them legally. I can just imagine a criminal saying "you know, I am fine with pulling this armed robbery, but dammit I would have to break the law to get a gun." Personally the only reason I carry a 45 is because they don't make a 46.

I am proud to say that I carry a handgun everywhere I go that they are aloud. I think that every woman should take the class and obtain their permit to carry. A woman has to know how to defend herself and take care of herself. I don't depend on a man to protect me and my family. We all own handguns and we know how to use them properly. It's the people who abuse the way to use them that give everyone else a bad name. I think that it is a good thing to have a gun for protection. I do feel that they should be kept out of the reach of children and only used if necessary to protect yourself or your family. Being able to own and carry a handgun is my right and I am thankful to have it.

I Oppose because as a former US Marine and a citizen of the United States We the people are being walked on, Taken advantage of with strong arm communistic tactics. This Great Nation was founded on freedom and the right to have and bare arms. God bless America and Semper Fi.

Criminals don't abide by the law anyway...why would they abide by a law that says not to own guns? All this would do is take guns away from law abiding citizens and give criminals free reign. Good luck taking mine away.

I have strong feelings about gun control. If there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

In countries where there are very strict gun control laws the murder rates are much, much lower. Free access to guns result in a higher number of gun deaths.

"The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it" -Thomas Jefferson

It is only the far left wing loons, like the one above who would oppose the second amendment. The day the government decides to take guns away from citizens will be among the bloodiest in our nation's history. Fortunately, that day will never come.

Yes that's right I just got out of a relationship about seven months ago where he was real controlling and obsessive. He threatened my two young children and myself .. I did go get an order of protection which he's violated a few times, and I do have a gun permit ...ill be damned if anybody threatens me or my family again. I had the training and I know when to use it or when not to use and both my kids will know how also....I will protect my family no matter what

With the current breaking and entering crime rate in greene county with out hand guns for the non criminal element where would be no protection for families. It is not hard to be a criminal and get a gun but if you are a law abiding citizen and want one you have to jump through hoops. Gun Control solves nothing but getting good people killed

snub nosed .38 special and proud of it. I used to be one of those women that screamed at my husband for even thinking about bringing a gun into our home. NO MORE. I will not stand back and allow my family to become victims. I grew up with guns and i know how to break down, clean, reassemble, load and fire most personal guns (i wouldnt know what to do with an ak or something like that) I am not afraid to sleep at night, and i will never live in fear agian. Tote on America and Greene County, gun control would never pass, this is America after all
