Too many people killed compared to deaths prevented

really?If that were true you would have psoted evidence to support your claim. You didn't. Why?

Feel free to gamble with your life and those of your loved ones.

There are approximately two million defensive gun uses (DGU's) per year by law abiding citizens. That was one of the findings in a national survey conducted by Gary Kleck, a Florida State University criminologist in 1993. Prior to Dr. Kleck's survey, thirteen other surveys indicated a range of between 800,000 to 2.5 million DGU's annually. However these surveys each had their flaws which prompted Dr. Kleck to conduct his own study specifically tailored to estimate the number of DGU's annually.

If there are that many Defensive Gun Uses I wonder how many Offensive gun uses there were?

Is it your assertion that every defensive gun use is to thwart an offensive gun use?

This survey is a waste of time. If you do not realize the need for handguns in responsible hands, then you don't deserve liberty.

Constitutional Right. Remember the reason why Japan did not invade the Americaan homeland itself. Admiral Yamamoto stated they did not invade because of the weapons all the citizens had. Notice what the current administration is trying to do, they want to disarm the citizens. Once the citizens have no weapons they cannot fight back, and once you take their rights away you control them

It is our right and that is that. I do not want some liberal telling me that I can't do this and that I can't do that. That is what gets me with liberals, they are supposed to be for more rights, yet all they do is want to take more rights away...
