So let's say I have a gun and I'm going to rob you. You have a gun too. Sadly, yours in the glove box, or your holster, with the safety on just like they teach you in concealed weapons class. Result: if you go for your gun, you're dead, and I get your wallet and your gun. If I see your gun, I get your wallet and your gun. People watch too many movies.

An acquantance asked me why anyone would need an AR-15 with 20 round magazines. I told him why does anyone need a HumVee or a large expensive SUV? Why does anyone need a home with 30 rooms? Why does anyone need 3, 4, or 5 & 6 homes? This is America That's why. Because if you can afford it and you want it then you pay for it. No one else's business what you do with your own hard earned money. Then again Obama wants us all poor and dependent democrats depending on government handouts...

The shooter in New York only fired 3 bullets, all of which hit his former employer. He wounded no one else. The police responding opened fire on him and emptied their magazines at him killing him and wounding all of the other people who were injured. It's funny that most shootings happen in areas where gun ownership is highly restricted or banned outright. Maybe you anti gun zealots should take the hint: Gun control doesn't work!

You know what? I am sick to death of hearing that guns don't load themselves and kill anyone. Stop! We get it! Fiirst, let me say"I LOVE GUNS"! I own guns, always have, always will! But I see no reason that any civilian anywhere should own semi- automatic weapons. They are what they are designed to do! TAKE OUT AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE IN THE SHORTEST AMOUNT OF TIME! Any responsible gun owner knows this, and why people keep coming into these forums trying to defend them is beyond...

Any responsible gun owner knows this, and why people keep coming into these forums trying to defend them is beyond reason! I do not advocate messing with anyone' rights to arms, but this is just ridiculous. In these times when people are so desensitized to violence(it's everywhere), in games and in our media; I can understand why someone who is not quite right in the head would think this is a good thing to own. But we need to stop screaming so loud about our personal freedoms so loud, that we can't hear the rights of someone else to live! It may happen at your kids school next! Think about it!

define semi-auto. The gun ban people define that as my browning 22, they wouild also define my 44 dirty harry gun as semi-auto becuase it is double action. they define hunting rifles as semi-auto. I MIGHT give you that AUTO doesn't need to be in the hands of the general public - but not SEMI-AUTO. That is what the anti-gun lobby wants, and their entire goal (as said publicly by Brady's wife) is to ban ALL GUNS forever.

that'll never happen, doesnt matter how much they lobby. Count how many times the Constition has actually been ratified. Not to many since they wrote it. The right to bear arms is an inalienable right, to protect the citizens from rouge governments. I aint giving mine up and I am sure you arent either. But come on, you know some people , especially uneducated ones have no business with semi automatic weapons, they running wild with em.

Goldie, check this out. It doesn't matter what non-Americans think, they can't vote anyway. Whether your Republican, Democrat, Green Party or Independent if you try to mess with the Constitution, your gonna have a bad time. It is no easy thing to ratify the Constitution. Those articles are written in blood. These articles were created first, to protect the citizens from their own government, and then to protect the Union as a whole, then to protect basic personal freedoms. In that...

(We the People) the problem is that we don't even want to abide by our own laws. The majority rules. Democratic have to bow to the will of the people when the Republicans win. So must the Republicans when the democrats win. That's our Constitution at work.

Although my NRA friends get pissed at me for this....I am not against an extensive background check - I have nothing to fear, but the reason this isn't done at gun shows is because people come to gun shows from all over, it's kind of hard to sit around a town 200 miles or more from your home waiting for that background check. But in all honesty, the check happens when they call your name and info into the FBI. It's an instant check but it's going to catch anyone with a criminal record. ...

No, they shouldn't have a weapon, but what constitutes a psycho and what constitutes the fire button on them. If you were in a messy divorce and went for counseling would you want that to be used against you if you wanted to legally purchase a firearm (unless you said you were going to kill your spouse of course) but where does it end and to what level do you take it. There is no good answer. Telling me I can't purchase a gun is not the answer and I won't accept that answer - I will fight that tooth and nail.

You have about a .0003% chance of being shot by a gun based on population by percentage of gun deaths, the number of homicide gun deaths is about the same as the DUI deaths number.
Just because you own a gun, a smart phone or like a drink doesn't mean you are going to kill someone, or that you want to kill someone.

I am just fed up with all this crap that keeps getting posted and sent to media (yes social media is media) by people who really don't bother to care about facts just their opinion and they bombard us with their opinions everyday. Squeaky wheel concept I guess, so sometimes I get annoyed and try to show another side of a coin.

I am just fed up with all this crap that keeps getting posted and sent to media (yes social media is media) by people who really don't bother to care about facts just their opinion and they bombard us with their opinions everyday. Squeaky wheel concept I guess, so sometimes I get annoyed and try to show another side of a coin. The system we have for handguns ownership here in Canada is so superior in my opinion to what they use in general in the USA, you would not believe it unless you actually went through it to own a handgun here. Long guns here are also hard to get here legally because you must go through a course, police checks and then when you purchase a gun you must show the related federal ID to buy one. Yes we don't actually have to register the long guns, but that is because we have already jumped through more hoops than almost any other country for the ability to legally own and possese said guns. when it comes to male ownership especially for handguns, the RCMP even interview spouses and or other females like siblings to make sure we are stable, they also do mental health checks, criminal conviction checks before they issue you a classification to own a handgun, and then when and if you acquire a restricted weapon you must get a special ATT permission to transport from Point A to B, and only between your legal residence and a registered shooting range. So no you can't take a restricted weapon out in your back yard and shoot tin cans Legally.
SO the criminals are illegally owning guns and they are not registering them or carrying cards to identify themselves or their legal right to own said guns.

Two of my three children work in NYC. I couldn't get on the phone with them quickly enough this morning to make sure they were safe and, thank God, they are. But, again, we have tragic loss of lives and injuries from random a shooting. This is not the Wild West! We do not have to walk around armed and spoiling for trouble. Tighten gun control!
