Gun Laws Debate - Ellijay, GA
Does the US need to reform its gun laws?

We have become one of the most violent societies on earth.
The courts have ruled that neither the government nor the police have any obligation to protect individuals.
Responsibility for personal protection lies SOLELY with the individual.
Therefore citizens have a right to protect themselves from the criminal elements within our violent society.

EGO, I would agree with you except that it has now become impossible to afford weaponry such as the Army has; even if you could you would have to have a lot of training to be able to use it. 250 years ago no one imagined that weaponry would advance to the form it has. Several groups have tried to take the Army on in the past 40 years and it has not worked. I have been to a militia meeting and a lot of the people I met were just average guys but there were a few radicals thrown in, enough that I never went to my second meeting. I do agree with your determination to remain free and if the time comes to fight I'll be in the ditch right beside you wasting my small calibre bullets while being bombed by Hellfire missiles from a drone in the sky.

In my opinion, There has never been a hammer made that built a house. Men use the hammers to build.
There has never been a gun made that killed a person. A person used the gun to kill someone.
No matter what type hammer or gun you refer to, they are simply tools used to perform a task.
Man has created nail guns to perform the task faster and so they have also created automatic weapons for the same puspose. Take away the nail guns and we will build our homes with hammers. Take away the automatic weapons and we will use single shot weapons to complete the task.
A gun is a tool, if someone wants ti kill another, they will use a knife, screwdriver, bat, stick, rope, rock or any other object that can inflict damage.
If the government take away our guns, criminals who were intent on breaking the law will not be concerned with breaking the law in obtaining or keeping guns.

Joe, I agree. Any clear thinking citizen should be allowed to have guns. I am concerned with what has gone wrong with people. Why are mass killings happening? Is it the video games, or movies or what? We need to dig deep and find the cause of these events. You are correct, the guns did not cause this. I own several guns and they have never fired at anyone.

Sheesh. I was up in Tennessee at a 'surplus' store (pushing it. I've been to surplus and this was more high tech).
The guns. Woweewow, the guns.
I was fantasizing myself holding those $8k+ pieces of pure beauty and precision, Pretending to handle them non nonchalantly but with authority like that girl on Sons of Guns. I'm so jealous of her.
What were you saying?
Oh, no, I can't afford those guns, either.
We'll have our backs :)(You're not making fun of me about drones, are you?)
Probably! It's totally cool :D
