MarineGunner/ideaminer you both make good points; but I have always believed that PEOPLE KILL…guns are only one of many tools that evil and those mentally incompetent chose to accomplish their evil deeds.
Laws are made to protect you…this is a misnomer…show me one law that actually protects you. Laws are made to deter and punish the criminal act after it has been committed, not before.
Laws made by moral people are for moral people; for criminals only respect the laws they want too. When a lawbreaker breaks the law he suddenly has rights to protect him…what about the victims of lawbreakers, where are their rights. They have none, only a Government that says it is protecting you. The only person that can protect you from criminals is…YOU!
