guns not a problem, if guns laws are made , only the outlaws will have then . criminals do not use guns laws as a guide line for their crimes.

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.

Great post, Dennis. My hat is off to yo.
