Giving up my God given right to protect myself and my family against crime and tyranny is ridiculous. Implementing a gun ban only leaves law abiding citizens unarmed while the criminals will still retain or have access to their illegal firearms.

The right to defend oneself and others against violence by violent people is a fundamental right of all people. A handgun is the most effective weapon for this purpose, since it is concealable and can be kept handy nearly all the time. We do not know when or where a violent, armed, out-of-control person may attack us or someone close to us. A shotgun is a better self-defence weapon, but not so easily carried about. The 2nd ammendment to our constituion is not about hunting- it is about self-defence.

an illogical attempt to solve a social problem--- arm criminals and disarm the public--are you SERIOUS??? Have you really given this any thought?--- or are you just choosing to ignore the real problem around you--lawless people!!

I've yet to see any law abiding, sane citizen tote, show-off or in any other way be irresponsible with thier concealed weapons. To punish a genre of people who have yet to be offensive is preposterous.

The government does not have the manpower or response time to stop a crime, they can only investigate and prosecute after the fact. It is my job as a husband and a father to protect my family.
