Gun control laws have done absolutely nothing to reduce crime, in fact gun control increases violent crime by disarming the citizens. I never unstood liberals on this position. It's such a common sense thing! Why can't they comprehend that criminals aren't going to obey any of the laws they establish???

Law enforcement can only help the victims AFTER a crime is commited. Often, that includes sweeping dead bodies of unarmed victims of roberies and senseless violent crimes. I don't want to allow a criminal to have the power to decide when my time to go has come. I want to be able to make him at least think twice about it!

I could never understand how some people, like me, can go through life with never a thought about owning a gun, and for others - it is a must-have.

gun control only hurts the law abiding citizen. how many criminals do you know that are law abiding? think about it.

You're talking in circles. Criminal and "law abiding citizens" are opposites by definition dummy.

I don't believe that a cop can protect my home the way I can because most of them hang back until the deed is done. Most coppers believe that their job is to catch criminals, not stop crime.

I could never understand why anyone would not want to own a firearm. Liberals don't want private gun ownership because they can't make subjects out of citizens who own one. I bet that Officer BarFly, brady, or whatever would rather have his head up his ass like the rest of the Liberal jackasses.

what the hell? Is this the wild, wild west?
What the hell does everyone need guns for?

WAY too many shootings in this city now. Hotheads, drunks, mentally unbalanced and hostile should be nowhere near lethal weapons!

Less than 1% of all gun crimes are commited by liscenced carriers. Gun control is only beneficial to the criminals. The only good gun control is making sure the front sight stays on the bad guy!!

Because you benefit from those of us that do carry! Ask the people in the AT&T store if they are against gun control? I bet if they were, they aren't now! Unarmed citizens also benefit when we carry concealed by vitue of criminals NOT knowing who is armed and who is not.

Also, the second amendment is VERY cut and dry. Again only liberals tend to dispute it. It states that the RIGHT of THE PEOPLE shall not be infringed.
