How many of our rights have they taken away already? If they institute unreasonable gun control laws then the only people who will have their guns taken away are the law abiding citizens that have the documentation to have their weapons LEGALLY. That means no more hunting, which they alreay regulate like crazy, or increased regulations on hunting. So, what are they taking away our right to feed our families now? They already have crazy regulations on guns that don't work. You can't buy a handgun unless you're 21 but why is it that we always manage to see 15 year olds with guns that they purchased themselves? You can control guns for law abiding citizens but not the criminals that sell them to kids. You can't buy a shotgun or hunting rifle until you're 18, but you can get your hunting license and handle guns when you're 12? You aren't supposed to be able to have a handgun or purchase a handgun if you're a felon right? Then why is it that every time I come across a felon they have a gun? Gun control laws don't help anyone but the criminals. We will be left vulnerable and unprotected if they take our guns. What will we do then?
