The Second Amendment of the Constitution allows citizens to protect themselves from the tyranny of government.

Law enforcement is a great "after action" to crime, but never there to protect you when needed. Self protection is not only a right, it is a responsibility of every able bodied, non- criminal citizen.

Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. Cross reference the bad things that happen with hand gus vs. the total count of hand guns to get a vague idea injury analysis. Not rocket science.

As a retired deputy sheriff I can verify that, in most cases, the police arrive in time to draw chalk lines around the deceased, not in time to save them. It's not what we, as law enforcement officers, want but it is a fact of life when each officer on duty is responsible for miles of territory and tens of thousands of persons. If you value your life, as well as the lives of your family, friends and innocent neighbors, you will responsibly own, be completely familiar with,regularly practice with and be mentally prepared to use some form of firearm against some thug who makes his/her living by creating victims. In most cases you should have a handgun,legally carried and with you at all times the law allows...yes, even in church. Look at the many innocent lives which have been recently lost in "no firearms allowed" areas like the schools, churches and even the processing area at Ft Hood. Then look at what happened to an entire ethnic population in Europe in the 1930's and 1940's when they expected someone from " the government" to look out for and protect them. If you don't prepare yourself to "go down fighting" that's your business I guess, but for me, I'm going to try my best to see that it's the bad guys who lose...not the innocent would-be victim. Just the rambling thoughts of an Old Fart.

Guns like anything else that are legal to have. A long debate is not needed. If its legal I should have free access to it.

No reason for the ban, except government control. Oregon has less crime than California and Washington because armed responsible citizens work. Criminals do not care about bans.

Why do you morons keep asking this question after getting slammed on this issue? No one wants anyone to control access to firearms by lawful owners. Are you dense or just not getting the answer you want.

I, for one am all in favor of the right to arm bears. Having lived in Alaska, I've seen all too many times an innocent bear killed while it was forraging for food to feed its family. I say give each bear a 30-06 and then see how the hunter feels when his prey shoots back!

Americans have the right to bear arms. Removing that right from free citizens allows criminals to attack them with guns, which will be exactly what happens. An unarmed populace is a group of huddled, afraid, powerless individuals that have let themselves be deceived by the Government.

Law abiding citizens need to have the choice to be able to protect themselves from the other kind of "citizens". When seconds count help is just minutes away.

You can't undo technology, you can only adapt to it. Handguns are the most effective means of self-defense.

I oppose this. I have many thousands of dollars invested in handguns and not about to give up any of them. Obama would like to eliminate all gun ownership. But the Supreme Court has upheld the Right to Bear Arms. Don't like gun ownership, move to Mexico. They have some of the most stringent gun laws.
