    Controlling guns??

    When the gun control crowd goes on its tirade they site the countries that don’t allow its citizens to own guns and how the crime rate in those countries are lower than ours.

    Funny thing is they always leave out Switzerland, where
    ex-military people are required to keep a gun. Switzerland’s crime rate is extremely low, despite the massive amount of guns there.

    The real reason that the crime rate is so low is that the Swiss just don’t put up with crime. They simply will not tolerate it. We could learn a lesson from them.

    For some reason this nation has been led down the primrose path of simplistic thinking when it comes to placing blame. Cigarettes cause cancer, blame the tobacco company, not the smoker.

    Now I know cigarettes are killers and goodness knows I’m not taking up for the tobacco companies, but let’s face it, who is to blame? The people who make the cigarette or the person who smokes it?

    If you drink a jug of battery acid do you sue the manufacturer?
    After all, the warning is right on the package. Well the warning
    about the harm cigarettes can do to you is right on the package too.

    If you shut down every tobacco company in America people would still find a way to smoke. There would be a thriving black market.

    The same thing is true of guns.

    Let’s be sensible. Who is causing all the trouble with guns now?
    Criminals of course, the majority of which have been in prison, many of them on some parole program or other and they are forbidden by law to own or possess a gun. So what is one more gun law going to mean to them? They’re breaking the law already by just having a gun, much less using one.

    Do you know where to buy an Uzi submachine gun? You probably don’t and I don’t either. But odds are that your neighborhood drug pusher does.(Although we have one at my PD)

    All the laws in the world can’t bend a person bent on violence
    from carrying it out. They’ll use a knife or a brickbat if they have too.

    If we truly want to stop the violence in America we have to get the violent people off the street and keep them off.

    Too many plea bargains, too many repeat offenders, too much protecting the rights of violent criminals while ignoring the rights of their innocent victims.

    Lock up the criminals, not the guns.

    my stand on gun control is very simple, the only type of guns that should be allowed by citizens (as in non-law enforcment people) is hunting rifles, period.

    What about the Anti-Aircraft Missile Launchers? How is one supposed to hunt those tasty bald eagles without them?

    If I ever witnessed anyone shooting an eagle or a hawk I would punch them in the face.

    Isn't it enough that they're being shot at? You are a truly cruel man.

    Why would I be? The criminals that have them have them illegally. Gun control is not going to stop them from using them or getting them. It only stops law abiding people like me.

    Let's face it, it's too late to bring about gun control. If you ban weapons a lot law abiding citizens would surrender their guns while criminals run around armed to the teeth. If you're not a criminal or mentally ill and are responsible I see no reason why you shouldn't be allowed to own firearms.
    Of course there should be strict enforcement of existing gun laws....

    I want a gun. Seems like it's be fun to own one. My father in law (retired cop) would be happy to teach me how to shoot.

    Guns don't need to be controlled, people do.

    And THAT is a major point of all the pro-gun groups in the country. The laws are already on the books, they just aren't being enforced.
    Rules? You mean we have RULES for that???
