dreadedlefty: Your thinking is so fallacious it's difficult to know how to respond. First, it's not a matter of "Conservatives giving up their guns", but of American citizens giving up their Constitutional rights. I strongly disagree with your fallacious statements, so when are you leftists going to give up your freedom of speech? Factual studies consistently show that many more innocent lives are saved and protected by firearms than are harmed by them. Criminals will always have access to guns, so why shouldn't law-abiding citizens be allowed to use them for protection (even if it were not a Constitutional right)?
