This debate could be resolved relatively easily by answering a few simple questions. 1. If we pass more Gun Control Laws who can we expect to abide by these new laws? Answer = Law Abiding People 2. Are these the people we are most concerned about? Answer = NO 3. Who will most likely violate these new laws? Answer = The same people who violate existing laws. Summary = More Gun Control Laws will only affect the Law Abiding, making them less capable of defending themselves while giving Criminals an additional advantage. So, how bout we quit wasting our time talking about Gun Control and start looking for ways to create jobs in a nation with more than 20 million people out of work? This is purely a DISTRACTION from our real problems.

I agree totally. However the gun control people start the lament that gun owners have a better chance of shooting themselves or a child getting their hands on a carelessly stored gun. I have had numerous arguments with these folks, all for nothing, their minds are made up and will not listen to facts

Amen! You said it, wish more people would realize what is happening to our country!
The gun control controversy is only the latest of many issues to be debated almost solely in terms of fixed preconceptions, with little or no examination of hard facts.

Media discussions of gun control are dominated by two factors: the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment. But the over-riding factual question is whether gun control laws actually reduce gun crimes in general or murder rates in particular.

If, as gun control advocates claim, gun control laws really do control guns and save lives, there is nothing to prevent repealing the Second Amendment, any more than there was anything to prevent repealing the...
