Within twenty years, Wichita will look like Detroit today. Within twenty years, Detroit will be hell on Earth.

Without the 2nd Amendment we are screwed.

I have always had guns, there were guns in the home I grew up in, my Dad was in the Army for more than a couple decades. All of us kids were taught the proper use care and storage of a firearm and were shown what happens when you fire the rifle or pistol.
None of us has ever been the victim of a violent crime.
In Wichita a few years ago there was a bad night for burglars when three separate burglaries were stopped by armed property owners.
If anyone needs more reason than that to learn how to use a gun and to keep one handy I don't know what it would be.
Frankly I am sick and tired of Chicago liberal types who don't trust us to have common sense while we are armed.
In Chicago area there was a murder spree at the mall when five disarmed women were murdered. It was their gov't that disarmed them, not the perpetrator so their gov't is responsible for those deaths.
If you like innocent people getting slaughtered, support a ban on handguns, just don't start crying when the crime rate goes up.

Is not:

Illegal drugs banned?
Drinking and driving?
Muggings?
Rape?
Bank robberies?
Murder?
Braking and entering a home?
Assault?
Fraud?
Extortion?
Having a knife over 4 inches?

The list could go on.

But since all the above banned illegal activities continue to be perpetrated on society how do we ban something and make it work?

This is the question I would like one of the anti gun people to answer.

If any one of them can prove that a law to ban something will stop it from happening
I will be the first to be in line to help.
The first time a gun is banned the criminal will use a gun against you.
2000 years of laws has not stopped anything.

What is the problem?

80 percent of all people that I know own a gun.
It is the ignorance of guns that is the problem.
It is the gun in a stupid ignorant personís hand that is the problem.
It is the people that are scared of guns that are the problem.
The gun is not the problem if you know how to use it safely.
A gun is no more harmful than a knife, club, rake, shovel, bow & arrow or any other idem that you can use to harm someone.
Yes guns can be used to cause harm BUT no more than a vehicle, and both are tools that you should know how to use. And yet we allow people that canít drive on the streets.

Come on how can one attribute violence to gun ownership?
Come on how can one attribute robbery to gun ownership?
Come on how can one attribute rape to gun ownership?
Come on how can one attribute home invasion to gun ownership?
Come on how can one attribute kidnapping to gun ownership?

If you do attribute any of the above to gun ownership then without guns there would be no crime what so ever?
Without doctors there would be no sickness.
Without cemeteries there would be no death.
The logic behind the anti gun movement is illogical.
To ban a gun is to open the way for all that would harm us.

libs think that a woman who has been raped and strangled is morally superior to a woman who carries a gun for defensive purposes.

Give every legal American citizen a gun that don't have any felony convictions. Then the criminals will think twice about robbing and attacking people. Its been proven over and over again.

Good people with a gun should not be punished for the faults of bad people.
