This incident in Connecticut has inspired the anti-gun crowd. That seems to include you, Gary. You've said nothing about high-volume ammunition capability and such...just guns. You seem to be of the belief that if guns were somehow outlawed in America, that would stop the senseless killing of people in America by guns. You obviously haven't been following the goings on in Illinois...specifically Chicago, where they have the most stringent gun ownership laws in our country. But, hey, that's somehow not important...somehow an exception. God love ya, Gary.
I'm a Concealed Carry owner and even I wonder at times about "allowing" combat-type weaponry and high-ammunition capability weapons for civilians. But, then, the 2nd amendment wasn't established to allow people to have guns to hunt. That was put in place so that citizens could defend themselves against an overly aggressive government (do some research and you'll see this is true}. Argue it all you want. Too many of our founders have made statements in that regard as well as a great many notable politicians INCLUDING democrats. So, let's put this in perspective.
Guns aren't going to be outlawed in America. That's not achievable regardless of the politics involved. Too many people that charish their weapons...their ability to defend themselves..to let that ever happen. So, what's the answer, Gary?
Dangerous people exist and always will...from those that kill young children with guns to those like Timothy McVey that kill many people with explosives. The fight should not be to restrict gun ownership. It should be to change our culture. THAT is the challenge. Progressives don't seem to understand that...and therein lies our country's problem. Thanks for your expected post. But, try to be less political and more about what's good for our country, okay? Thanks.
