how you feel if someone came up to you and pull a gun on you and you had nothing to protect yourself. but i do think that permits should be required along with training and background checks!!

The diseases of liberalism and political correctness have given criminals the idea that they can prey on citizens without much risk from the judicial system. When you combine this with our Federal governments complete failure to secure our borders, we are also preyed upon by criminal illegal aliens. Law or not, I refuse to be unprepared to protect myself or any other citizen that is being victimized in my presence.

FBI/DoD for 25 years, fully trained in firearms, gun hobbyist. I feel bad for the sorry f*** who comes in my house or tries to pull a gun on me. We all deserve the right to protect ourselves and our families. Like "mike" said, criminals will get guns illegally anyway, no law is going to stop that. Why not be prepared to defend yourself.

I've been a licensed gun owner for alot of year's. and i will not support a ban on gun's. It is the one's who have criminal intent and are illegal gun owner's that are the issue. Good luck with taking their gun's.This has been going on for year's.It's a responcibilty of legal gun owner's to keep gun's out of the reach of children, and other's.

If a person has a hand gun that is not legal & wants to harm you, I feel you have the right to protect yourself with a legal hand gun.

Thanks for reminding us! We are totally disappointed that you cannot join us in what is left of our good country. But criminality lurks within our congress and recently deceased senator ted kennedy made sure that America would have to select its immigrants from third-world countries, so people from France as well as other countries that are predominantly white and successful have great trouble trying to enter. Ironically, if the immigration of third-world types into European continues, at some point they will have to be considered third-world, so your chancees of immigrating to America might get a little better - even if your home country turns into an uninhabitable cesspool.

That is only a start. You need not be confronted by an armed attacker to justify use of firearm protection, nor should you. It should not matter if you encounter a group of thugs on a hiking trail or just some unattended vicious dog.

There has been no documented proof that banning firearms reduces crime, in fact just the opposite has been documented.

The right to self defense is one of our greatest natural rights. In this day and age a gun provides the best means for accomplishing this. Guns should never be banned. Numerous courts (including the Supreme Court) have ruled that the police have absolutely no responsibility to protect individuals. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/28/politics/28...

I believe in the right to keep and bear arms. I also believe that with the right comes the responsibilty to educate oneself in firearms safety and to train in the use of said weapon.

Very strongly oppose the ban. Just another ploy to take away another freedom of american's. Support conceled carry with a permit. Open carry undecided, might be someone just wanting to flaunt their ego???
