A great idea that, apparently, not one of you supports.
A gun is all you need, you say, and you'll be safe from all danger. But actually, a gun used in self defense at your house is "43 times more likely to kill a member of the household, or a visiting friend than in intruder."-(Arthur Kellermann and Donald Reay. "Protection or Peril? An Analysis of Firearm Related Deaths in the Home." The New England Journal of Medicine, vol. 314, no. 24, June 1986, pp. 1557-60). So much for the saftey of a gun.
I'm sure all of you crazy self-defensive people will be happy by the news that in Florida, self defense has been taken to such a level that you are now allowed to shoot people on the street in self defense. Now, you are allowed to walk on the street with a concealed gun and shoot people, and if put in jail, you may appeal in the case of self defense. Justice prevails in America.
Some people say "What happens when the government becomes a dictatorship and we have no guns to protect ourselves."
How about "What happpens when the system of checks and balances fail, and we can no longer vote, and we can no longer impeach, and dragons roam the earth, and we have no guns to protect ourselves!" it is completely ridiculous to relate government corruption to gun control, and use it as a reason to own a gun.
Holding a gun in a way that your shots are more accurate.
"THAT's gun control! None of that anti-gun crap!"
1. An isidious plan by some who feel that the gun is to blame for crimes commited by the criminal as a basis to take away firearms from law-abiding citizens.
2. Hitting what you're aiming at.
3. To use both hands while firing.
Gun control isn't about guns, it's about control.
Limiting access to firearms or outright banning firearms is an extremely foolish idea. I understand that such acts are intended to prevent violent crimes, but they do not. Such acts only limits a law-abiding citizen's ability to protect himself, his family, and his property. A criminal, WHO INTENDS TO BREAK THE LAW ANYWAY, will not have any compunction about illegally obtaining firearms or obtaining illegal firearms.
Keep in mind that when the second amendment refers to "a well-regulated militia" it means "a group of citizens formed to defend its community" not "the United States military." This is confirmed by the fact that the second part of the second amendment begins "the right of the people..." not "the right of the military!"
Furthermore, Federal gun control laws are inherently unconstitutional because they violate a state's rights. Remember the Tenth Amendment? The Federal government does not!
All citizens should be allowed easy access to firearms. Furthermore, every state in the U.S.A. should pass "shoot the burglar" laws. Would you break into someone's house if you knew there was a good possibility the owner would shoot you? i wouldn't!
Of course, I will not attempt to argue with you gun control advocates who disagree with the facts. Your disregard for reason and factual information is enough of an argument against you. While you cannot help forming an opinion, that does not mean your opinion is right.
What this nation needs the -least.- Guns are a way to keep ourselves protected from assholes who are out to kill us for no damn reason. And then, liberals are trying to apply gun control on this great country. We've got enough weapons being illegal to own, and then they're trying to even make it illegal for a law enforcement official to carry one.
Let's show those liberals some "gun control" by controlling a gun their way.
Gun control is not only unconstitutional, it's a fucking stupid idea!
Taking away guns won't reduce murders. Shit, you can kill someone with your bare hands if you really wanted him dead!
1. A term often misunderstood as to meaning the control the appropriation, selling and accquisition of firearms.
2. Applying proper use to a firearm, as to be able to accurately accquire and dispatch hostile targets.
Some people say gun control is the only thing keeping the nation safe from crimes. I say that *MY* gun control is the only thing preventing people from committing acts of crime on me.
