Sadly, as mentally ill people become more destitute, mass murders will be on the rise. Where does one point a finger when a tragedy such as in CO occurs?

Don't blame the guns. Eliminating guns will not stop killers. It will stop someone defending themselves against a killer. Criminals don't care about laws. That's what makes them criminals. They will get guns from the black market, build one, or use another method.

okay I may be talking out my butt however that never stopped me before. If you look at states like VT and other states who have very limited gun laws I believe the use of firearms in criminal activity is lower than that of states with strict gun laws. Like I said I didn't research this just food for thought.

I don't believe it is a case of stopping all gun ownership, quite the contrary. what I do believe is the access to "assault" weapons and large amounts of ammo, especially larger ammo magazines (the thing that you load and attach to the weapon) should be banned to all but military/swat. no one needs to have an assault riffle to protect themselves, or to target shoot or hunt.
as for the rest... I believe in the second amendment!

I did not research either, but I did live there. I believe that you are right. Gun laws only keep law abiding citizens in line. Criminals will still do what they want. Maybe though, a psych eval should be included when applying for a personal protection permit to carry. Just sayin'.

The best home defense is an assault 12 guage shot gun loaded with OO buck shot. It can blow a hole through any door or wall and will take out any cheap punks breaking into your home and it even work well on diagonal J walkers.
Gotta shoot 'em in the house to make it legal :)

Diagonal J walkers? You mean I have to drag them off the street and into my house after blasting them??
