You are not serious? As soon as I support a ban on medical treatment, literacy, and humanity.

And just how can the trash sales people make money at the flea markets if they can't sell their stolen guns to the people to play with?

More guns aren't the answer. More guns = more problems. There is too much power in the NRA. Frankly, don't think the Founding Fathers saw the guns of today when they set up the Right to bear arms. Personally, I have family in law enforcement and this crazy notion that having a gun on you, with you or around you is nuts!! Stats show more accidential shooting account for most of the deaths today. It's nonsense.
The NRA is just another lobbying group. Liberals have plenty of them but I don't hear your complaining about them because it suits your agenda.

You have family in law enforcement? And? Law enforcement people are some of the most uneducated people I've seen with firearms. Many only use their gun each year to qualify and after years of shooting and being around law enforcement officers I can tell you most aren't gun people and most would be better served carrying a billy club because they can't shoot for crap.

The only reason most of us carry a gun now is because the world is full of idiots who would rather rob rape and murder to get what they want rather than work for it.

And would you like to post a link to these "stats"?

I support a ban on handguns...Guns have gotten into the wrong hands thru street sales. I know many people that have them, that do not seem to have the brains to know how to use them..It would not bother me if guns were banned in our country..The only thing that comes from a gun is death. Pulling a trigger is not a solution to anything. Killing someone with a gun doesnt solve anything. Smith n Wesson went to far and too many of the wrong people have them..I say the people with guns need mental help because they want to hurt someone, they are a danger to themselves and others..Stick gun owners in mental Hospitals they are sick and dangerous! Sorry bout this gun owners but why you wanta be hatin? Lose the rifle and go to church instead
How about we put you in a padded room with no sharp objects so you can feel nice and safe? Lose the rifle and go to church? What about the church shooting they had a couple years ago? Oh and don't call the cops for help they carry guns too.

Never call the cops they might shoot you instead of the perp like happened in the Columbis sliver of northern Fairfield County this past summer.

Ill call them after I've protected myself and they can show up and do their paperwork, which is what they get paid to do.

<quoted text> Why don't you go ahead and tell us what the "Founding Fathers were thinking ? As a matter of fact, why not tell me what I'm thinking right now ? I"m in law enforcement,(35 years),and the vast majority of law enforcement support the 2nd amendment. I don't think one Officer has ever been killed by a citizen legally carrying a firearm. They know that laws don't prevent anyone from doing anything. If that was true there would be no need for law enforcement. Does the speed limit law stop you from speeding ? Get real !
Looks like there's too much Common Sense on this topic, I must change my name

Please pray for every parent of a child murdered yesterday by a crazed evil whack job. in CT.

Please also pray for those that had the horror to think it possible their child died.

Pray for yourself to have the strength to be a parent.

Merry Christmas

I pray for more people to use birth control. Proper use of a condom could have prevented that defect from being born
