An honest, law abiding citizen buys a gun illegally. He intends to harm no one. He simply wants to protect himself and his family. He is busted and sent to prison for doing absolutely nothing to hurt anyone else. There is no punishment for gun violations that can possibly be fair. I don't know why anti-punishment liberals find nothing wrong with this.
Any punishment for a gun violation is inherently cruel and unusual, rendering gun control unconstitutional at best.

The idea of taking away our constitutional right to bear arms in the hope that it will reduce violence, when in reality all it does is ensure that know one but the criminals have them.

Face it. Gun control doesn't stop violence. Do you honestly think that criminals would give up their weapons just because a law was passed?

One major basis for the argument of gun control is Columbine. Would it have been better if they had killed the kids by pushing them out of windows or something?
Gun control doesn't stop violence, but encourages people to find new and creative ways to be violent.

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.

The systematic restriction of the rights of Americans granted by the 2nd Amendment in the name of reducing crime. Gun Control is traditionally practiced by liberals but the rising popularity of neo-conservatism is also putting gun control on the agenda for most "conservatives." Gun Control ranges from the simplest of gun registration to an outright ban on a specific type of gun or guns in general. Gun Control is often implimented shortly before a totalitarian leader begins opressing a groups of people (German Holocaust, Stalin's Russia, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Darfur etc).

The fact is that Gun Control does not work. Any time new gun control laws are passed, crime rates go up. Whenever gun control laws are repealed, crime rates go down or stay the same. The simple truth is that if guns are outlawed, then only outlaws will have guns. By definition, criminals (the group that gun control laws seem to attempt to disarm (in addition to the general public)), don't follow the law, thus making the gun control laws ineffective on them.
Never in the history of the United States (and most other countries for that matter) has a gun control policy decreased gun crime, gun injuries and/or gun deaths.

An insidious plan that has aided almost every tyrannical government for the past century in murdering millions of unwanted or dissident civilians. People who support strong and restrictive gun control are either completely ignorant of history or maliciously trying to destroy liberty, perhaps both.
People who advocated strict gun control include but are not limited to enlightened individuals such as Joseph Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, Idi Amin, Mao Tse-Tung, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, Qaddafi, Kim Jong Il, Diane Feinstein, Sarah Brady, Rosie O'Donnell, Hilary Clinton, and Paul Helmke.

Also, maintaining control of your gun (i.e. muzzle control) as to ensure the barrel is not pointed in anybody's direction, ever, even when it's unloaded; and yet you can still manuever it to hit game when the opportunity arises. Excercising proper gun control is important because when you're out in the field, you need to be able to remain safe because that is the most important part of using any firearm. That and it's usually a good 50 miles to the nearest hospital and nobody needs a bellyfull of #7 steel shot.

Proper muzzle control is accomplished by making sure you are always 100% in control of where you aim your gun's muzzle and that it isn't pointed at any human, road, vehicle, or house (with rifles, do not point it at a house even miles away). The safest place to point a gun is down, at the ground, or up and away from anyone. Also, don't put your finger on the trigger until you are literally going to shoot the game in the next instant. This saves lives.
Bob exercised poor gun control. He got two pheasants, a grouse, and a quail. And his buddy Ted's GMC Yukon Denali XL.

Ted exercised good gun control. He got three pheasants and a sparrow that got in the way. And $6000 to repair his SUV.

While violence is bad, gun control is worse. When something is illegal, it does not disappear, it goes underground. I do not know why liberals should have such a difficult time relating to this concept. If someone is bold enough to risk their life to commit murder, it is probably safe to say that they aren't afraid to break some silly gun law. This is dangerous in that it transfers weapons from the good citizens to the criminals. "Banning" AK-47s doesn't do a damn thing - except make YOU more vulnerable.

Let's not forget that the Constitution gives American citizens the right to bear arms. While some restrictions may not necessarily be unconstitutional, the notion that the Right to Bear Arms is a group right is absurd at best. What, only the police can have guns? The founding fathers are rolling over in their graves.

It's a slippery slope to curtail constitutional rights or to outright "declare" one amendment "outdated" or a "relic." How would you feel if President Bush all of a sudden said the First Amendment was incompatible with the War on Terror? After all, the Founding Fathers never could have seen 9/11...
Criminals have no conscience. It is only intuitive to say they are more afraid of an armed victim than they are of getting caught by the police.
