Ban ALL guns because a few guns are used by criminals in the commission of crimes? Using the same logic, ban ALL automobiles since drunk drivers kill and maim many thousands every year AND the same criminals use them as "tools" in commission of crimes, just like guns!

The "government" cannot protect you from EVERY crime, unless they station a police officer in every home and business. It simply will not work!

Anchor Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Channel 4 News: "So do you carry guns routinely at home?"

Ice-T: "Yeah, it's legal in the United States. It's part of our Constitution. You know, the right to bear arms is because that's the...
