Most people miss the point. The 2nd Amendment gives us the right to own firearms so we can protect ourselves from a tyrannical government. Unfortunately that day seems to creep ever closer.

Only police need a weapon that can be concealed that is used to kill people. We have 10 times more gun deaths and crimes and prisons than anyplace in the world. The NRA has made our country very unsafe, Hand guns are made to kill. This country is nuts. Moving to Europe where lives are respected.

I used to enjoy packing heat for no particular reason and then one day I did something really stupid.

Too bad there wasn't a ban on cellphones in theaters.

70% of Americans want background checks.
82% want magazines with a limited numbers of bullets.
I hunt. I have a shot gun. You idiots need to realize no one is talking about taking hunting guns.
When you have 10 times more gun murders than any other country in the world, its time to have some common sense! So many lies are put out to uneducated people. Sad. Look at the research. Don't just listen to the untrue propaganda.

Just like accepting gays, in time, we will have common sense gun laws.

I've used handguns in competition, for 30 years. Ever heard of Camp Perry? IPSC Nationals? USPSA Nationals? IDPA Nationals? PPC Nationals? Steel Challenge Competition?

The US does not have the highest firearm murder rate - that prize belongs to Honduras, El Salvador and Jamaica. In fact, the US is number 28, with a rate of 2.97 per 100,000 people

Humans are worth more than guns. The more guns, the more dead people. Take up golf or pool or some other hobby. Volunteer-do good for the world.

Hmm, those little kids sneaking across the border are coming from Honduras and El Salvador correct.

Where did all the firearms in those countries come from?

Camp Perry near Port Clinton Ohio has been hosting firearm competitions since the 1950's

Good duck hunting in that area too.

No. If I wanted to live in the god forsaken hellhole known as New Jersey (which may ban the entire handgun market as we currently know it), then I would go live there or any number of other dungheap states like New York or California.
