I don't think the government should be able to ban handguns unless they can guarantee your absolute safety around the clock. I prevented an attack on myself by two hoodlums once by simply displaying the butt of a handgun. Their get-away car screeched up and they ran off. Way less violent than the fight that would have ensued for either party. How can you argue with that? Where were the police then?

There is no difference between a civilian owned "AK" and a 30-30 deer rifle. People cannot buy full-auto AK's, and even if they could, that would not make the devices inherently evil or dangerous.

With the price of ammunition they should ban butcher knives. How many local stabbings have there been lately opposed to shootings? I had to show the butt of a handgun to two thugs behind Honey Creek Mall once because they were following me and audibly discussing "jumping" me. They stopped in their tracks and a car screeched up and sped them away. I didn't draw the gun. I didn't get hurt. They didn't get hurt. Where's the violence in that? People that want handguns banned, by default, expect of me that I should have had a physical confrontation with them. In effect they are pro-violence, not anti-violence. That is not fair to me or anybody. Why should I risk personal injury because some people are scared to death of an inanimate lump of wood and metal?

I am a total advocated of gun control. I really believe that if you do not like guns, your scared of guns, or you think they are immoral to own, you should not be required to have one or even touch one. Here's a good compromise for all the liberals. You don't insist I give up my gun and I won't insist you carry one.

Sir you are wrong!! Fully auto weapons can be purchased legally in the USA. With the right permits (witch I wont go into detail) you can legally possess alot of military grade weapons and explosives.

Only protects criminals and not the citizens. The laws in Indiana are fine and should be left alone. Some other states need to loosen their laws to protect citizens.

Finally something worth responing to! I agree 100%. We should never let a gun control bill pass for guns will always be in the hands of criminals and people who want to do harm. It is the law abiding person who would be hurt on this issue should the law pass to take the guns out of the hands of the people.

I believe the Chicago & Detroit areas have total bans on handguns.....how's that working? California is about the toughest state on handgun control, guess that means it'd be pretty safe to roam the Oakland area streets anytime day or night?

only the criminals would have guns and Terre Haute is full of them. Check out the amount of people with gun permits and then double it for the amount of people who carry.
