    If gun control is suppost to reduce deaths and gun violence is still a problem shouldn't those responsible civilians with there own firearms respond? Every one is strong to advocate the responsibility of voting and being a good steward. Shouldn't it also be a resposibility to provide for the comman defense?

    I see no need for further criminal empowerment.

    I wonder how many people, that believe in gun control, actually realize
    *THE POLICE HAVE NO DUTY TO PROTECT INDIVIDUALS*:

    “Law enforcement agencies and personnel have no duty to protect individuals from the criminal acts of others.” -Lynch vs North Carolina Department of Justice 1989

    This means that if you want protection from violent crime, for you and your loved ones; it’s up to YOU and YOU ALONE to provide it.

    But ask yourself this question, in your heart of hearts: Why should a cop risk his life to save something so insignificant (your life or the lives of your loved ones), that even the owner is unwilling to protect it?

    but we have to ask ourselves why people tend more to have more guns

    Because those people who have more guns; have people in their lives, that's lives are *WORTH* protecting.

    is their life in danger ?they don't live peacefully?

    Living peacefully, doesn't mean evil people will leave them alone.
    In fact, being unarmed *ENCOURAGES* evil people to attack them.

    The Petit family lived peacefully, but were also unarmed.

    With over 20,000 laws on the books right now, I would say many of them should be repealed.

    There are more than enough laws on the books regulating guns.

    We would be just fine enforcing the ones we have.

    Well that and getting rid of a few of the stupider ones.

    how about we crack down on the crack heads ?
    or
    let's capture the kidnappers ?
    or
    let's take away the freedom from theifs ??

    the point , laws are only followed / obeyed by honest people, we already have plenty of laws on the books concerning firearms..

    HOW ABOUT WE ENFORCE THE EXISTING LAWS. ?????

    You're absolutely right, the guns caused those deaths...

    Oh wait no they didn't, evil bigoted people caused those deaths.

    I mean the top pic on that list was a woman burned to death in Italy, was that caused by guns too?

    How many of them would never have been harmed if the killers knew they were able to defend themselves?

    What a horrible bigot you are!

    It appears that each of the people you listed . . . were *UNARMED* when they were murdered.
    Wishing to prevent trans people and gay people from being able to protect themselves from assailants is outrageous!

    No one ever bashed a .38!

    Because surely you aren't so simpleminded, that you actually believe, the people who willingly commit *MURDER*, would obey a gun control law.

    registration and proficiency test seems like enough control to me just like with cars lol
  • Ryan Zeruke 2012/06/05 16:16:24

    Hm Canada just scrapped their long gun registration after wasting a few billion dollars on it.

    They decided it was a complete failure.

    And proficiency tests are also worthless. How many terrible drivers are out on the roads after passing the tests?

    I could drive better than most people when I was 10 years old, and it wasn't because I had passed any tests.

    Hahahahahahaha!
    You're good!
    Now tell one about a Priest, a Rabbi and an Irishman!

    The primary benefit of car registration, is to generate revenue for the Government.
    Gun registration has never been shown to reduce crime, but registration has definitely been used for the confiscation of the guns of the law abiding.

    I would *DEARLY LOVE* for guns to be treated like the much more deadly cars!
    But then again, I don't believe there should be a proficiency test for any specifically enumerated Constitutional Civil Right.

    Increase all you want..the bottom line is that you only put a burden on lawful gun owners not those that use them in a criminal action.Guns will never be banned in the U.S.A....and i think that anyone who wants them to be is bat crazy.
    One of the reasons why the United States of America hasnt been invaded is because there are well over 600,000 registered gun owners.
    trying to control guns is foolish...how about punishing those that use it in a crime

    hmmm,,, I thinks your post has a couple of holes in it... ( had to get a little gun humor in )
    I live in Pittsburgh , Pa. the commonwealth sells over a million hunting license each year. I believe in just this one state there are more than 600,000 gun owners, I have an estimate of in execess of 10 million gun owners ... now if we can get out the vote for those candidates that are going to defend the Constitution.....

    The NRA probably has 6 million members.
    Multiply that by 20 and you may have a number of people that own guns in the U.S.

    Since gun possession is a Constitutionally enumerated Civil Right; Firearms training should be taught in schools from the 1st grade on, using grade appropriate education.

    I think it should be an elective in the schools; some people don't want weapons or weapons training and I respect that

    I understand what you're saying.

    The gun safety and training should be handled in the same manner in school as Drivers Ed.
    Driving is *NOT* a Right, while "Keep and Bear Arms" is a Right.
