The 2nd amendment prohibits govt from regulating weapons.
The guns we have (handgun or longgun), in the home or concealed on our person are none of the govt's business. That's the purpose of the 2nd amendment.

Good point. In our democracy, the people are conned/tricked into giving up their natural rights by nazi politicians and voters.
But natural rights (whether or not govt allows us to EXERCISE it) do exist. The right to have drinking water and food are natural rights. Freedom or liberty are natural rights. Self defense is a natural right. Do you have a right to your life ?
Gun control is both illegal and immoral.
with no defense death is long lasting.

Well, at least you got your name right.

By the way - who's doing the shootings?
The prisons are filled to overflowing with people who have been "forbidden" from breaking the law. Yet they do it anyway.
Imagine that.

It's not guns that are bad. It's life. I will never give up my gun. It can keep me and my family safe. And even feed the family.

Said the antigun cop. Police are always instigating shooting rampages. They know it helps justify more antigun laws.

Police love to incite gun owners to get them to kill innocent people.

If it's so much better and safer in other countries why don't you live there ?

A ban on handguns would be a direct violation of the US Constitution and a serious infringement on US citizen's civil rights. As such, I could never support such a ban; regardless of whether or not I personally supported such a ban.

The police have no obligation to protect individuals. They usually arrive in time to draw the chalk ouline around the victim's body.

We have the right to protect ourselves. Not only do we have the right to bear arms but we also have the right to be secure in our possessions, property and papers. They can pry mine from my cold dead hands and they better bring a few hearses cause I'm not going alone. Fact

So why can't the state of Illinois recognize any of this impeccable logic?

Any why is there such an argument FOR gun control?
