Can someone say gun control?

Tom Ret @ 12/12/2011 4:04 PM

I can say no to more gun control because it hurts the law abiding citizen mostly. The criminals aren't worried about violating gun laws when they are planning their robberies, drive by shootings, murders etc. California has some of the most stringent gun laws and yet they have some of the worst gang violence in the nation. I personally can legally carry in all states but I recognize that a lot of these gun laws don't achieve their stated goal of reducing crime or making our streets safer.
Criminals want to be the ones who are armed, not their victims.

This won't go anywhere gun control wise. If the last Virginia Tech shooting didn't produce anymore gun control with a body count of 33, this won't with 2. I'm not trying to sound cold, but that is how many of these things are measured.

God Bless this officer and may he rest in peace,

If we outlaw guns, then only outlaws will have guns. Guns are not evil, people are. If you want to follow in the footsteps of powerful nations such as Communist China, Nazi Germany, the USSR, North Korea and Iran. then yes, support Gun Control. Britian did and it has more violent crimes on average than the USA.

HMMM Gun control works really good in MEXICO doesn't it?? or in the hands of blood thirsty TYRANTS like in SYRIA --when your GOVERNMENT bans your ability to arm up and to rise up... remember those places OK?
