    It isn't that they should be "outlawed", more correctly they should be rendered a moot point by accepting the simple fact that the Constitution protects the right to keep and bear arms. One doesn't need a permit to exercise a right.

    Not banned. Current regulations are sufficient

    An armed society is a polite society! Here is a news flash for all those anti-gun folks out there.... bad guys carried concealed handguns too, why should they have all the fun?

    cities with the strictest gun laws have the highest violent crime rates. Gun laws only hurt innocent citizens.

    57% of ALL deaths by firearms are Suicide.
    ................................
    The STATE of New York, with pop. of 19.4 million, has 5.1 deaths by firearm (homicides, accidents, police use, etc) PER 100,000 people, which includes, of course, NYC with 8.4 million people (about 45% of NY total pop.). In 2010, NYC alone had 666 drug related deaths PER 100,000. Hmmmm...seems to me the focus should be the war on drugs, not the war against the 2d Amendment.

    True that!!

    One of the problems is that it seems that there are people who make money off the drug trade that have sufficient influence to be able to stymie the trade....

    And what is really amazing...is the number of firearm deaths in NY....which has some of the most restrictive handgun laws around, especially NYC. Tends to point to the fact that when law abiding citizens are unarmed...the criminals will do their dirty deeds with impunity.

    That would be like taking away our 2nd amendment rights. It isn't guns that should be blamed, but the people who misuse them.

    There should be tighter controls on people with a record, but overall guns are good to have for self-defense.

    Felons are not permitted to own or possess firearms...especially handguns. State laws vary where long guns and shotguns are concerned...

    It's not legal gun ownership that's a problem in most cases.

    Believe me, I am well aware of that!! That is why the anti-gun nuts have a tendency to piss me off.... They want to disarm legal and law abiding owners, yet have absolutely zero/nada/zip/nyet/keine idea how to disarm the criminals.

    If we as law abiding gun owners surrender our weapons....we will be little more than "victims in waiting".....

    Every qualified American that wants one should be allowed to get one. The country will be safer and the real stats prove it if you look at states where it's easy to get one as opposed to the ones where it's almost impossible.

    In 1785 Thomas Jefferson wrote to his fifteen-year-old nephew, Peter Carr, regarding what he considered the best form of exercise: "...I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprize, and independance to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks."

    EVERY mentally competent person without a criminal record should have the right to carry in any fashion he/she deems appropriate.

    Permits are the antithesis of the sort of freedom the Founding Fathers envisioned.
