This is wasted debate. Guns aren't going anywhere and the Constitution isn't getting changed. Time to move on. People like their guns and if Aliens invade I want surrounded by people who are armed and ready to rumble. lol We are a violent country period. Americans are crazy. Spend a day on Townhall and you will find out! : )

You're probably right. So many people break some of the massive number of laws daily anyway, so what is the point of following any that are against one's personal best interest? I sure as heck won't comply. It's driving over the speed limit on the highway. If you don't, you get run over. They can't catch everyone, so eff 'em.

There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.

Laws in a free society are like anything else in a free society. There is a moral issue, a cost issue and a benefit issue. Free men look at laws to see if they reflect their own morals, what the cost is for breaking the law, and what the benefit is to society of having such a law.

Take speed limits for instance. I can see the moral issue, because if I drive too fast, I increase the risk of causing an accident which may kill others, as well as myself. If the fine is $25.00 I may elect to speed a little bit, but if it's $100.00, I may be more hesitant to speed. What's the benefit of a speed limit? It "may" help to save lives, depending upon the road, the conditions, traffic levels, etc. But, if we had all speed limits to be 30 mph, ...

even on a freeway, that would be of little benefit. There is nothing immoral about owning and using a gun, even an EBR (evil black rifle for those of you in Rio Linda, CA), for lawful purposes. The cost for me to own a gun is based around the price of the gun, the ammo for the gun, the maintenance, and how I choose to store it. The benefit to me is that I can target shoot, defend myself, and hunt, if I so choose.

Last night St. Louis radio host Dana Loesch went on CNN to "debate" Piers Morgan about gun control. The problem? Every single time Morgan asked her a question, he rudely interrupted her answer and went on an anti-gun tirade. At the end of the segment, Morgan got so angry that he crumpled a piece of paper and threw it across the desk. Just this week, Loesch explained to Morgan that an AR-15 uses .223 ammo after he said AT-15 rifles use .233 ammo.
