What's ridiculous is the people who lose their lives to tragic shootings, very sad. However many of these people illegal obtained these weapons (stolen) or should have never been allowed to buy one in the first place. Make it harder to obtain guns don't take them away all together, because the only thing stopping a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
I have to agree.
I also have to ask all, why should someone who's law abiding be punished because of the criminals? What amazes me about this rational is that anyone would think that any law will deter a criminal or nut hell bent on destruction from doing so. These laws will only deter a law abiding citizen. Or make a criminal out of him as well.
yes the Justice departments own statistics prove you right on your last sentence. Many many times more crime is stopped by private citizens who own a firearm. Look it up its there.
One of my statements did have an error. It was Jonas Clarke I was referring to, not Jonas Clark. Sticky keys. Every American should know this history but few really do.
