You sound more like a wanna-be military vet to me. Cleaning your weapons - waiting for the call. Whatever. You sound exactly like the kind of person who should NOT have any guns. Too unstable, and full of your 'coming revolution' BS. Rave on 'patriot'. Your crowd is dwindling.

Sad situation. I feel sorry for you US folks so brainwashed WRT guns.

Tomorrow I will go to ASDA for my paper and I will see ZERO guns. I will pass the Police Station where every cop is unarmed. I will go to work on Monday and pass people in cars and cops in cars and observe ZERO guns.

On the news today and tomorrow I might read about a gun related crime but I will probably have to wait a few months.

You pro gun US folks are off your heads and you still can't see it. WHY? How many dead people before DUH!!!!!!![/quote

And then you guys have terrorist attacks with bombs and automatic weapons...seems to happen often...

Y'know what? Whatever you are comfortable with. Pepper-spray is certainly a useful alternative, and certainly superior to nothing at all.

A good friend of mine carries a lead loaded length of hose, and pepper-spray. I, legally, carry a Colt in .45, and I just got a set of, not as legal, but still useful, set of brass knucks.

Running away is always a useful option, too...if you've the time to do so. I have, in fact, I'll do that before I'll resort to my firearm... So, too, will most when things start to get tetchy.

Contrary to what some here in seem to think of those of us who are armed.

The problem with “gun violence” has nothing to do with firearms but has everything to do with individual behavior and personal responsibility. If you want to properly address the problem focus on the behavior not on the hardware.


You've captured the entire issue in one sentence. But it's easier to blame the tool then blame the user.

more guns = more violence = more profit for nra = more blood sacrifice for reptilian overlords.

Yes. Wouldn't stricter back-ground checks potentially identify those who exhibit the wrong type of behavior to own a gun?

Self fulfilling prophecy. The gun lobby is so reluctant to bend, that the government, through voter approved legislature, will break it.

...and who, just out of curiosity, decides "wrong type of behaviour"?

...and what is "wrong type of behaviour"?

Some bought and paid for politician? One that's at the beck and call of those lobbyists you so despise?

Tell me does taking away drivers with DUI's prevent them from driving, worse yet, driving drunk?

Another question for you. What do stricter back ground checks do in preventing back ally black market gun sales?

All that does is make it harder for law abiding citizens to purchase items that are protected under the Constitution, as has been settled in several court cases. It does nothing to prevent gun crime.

The majority of American decide what the 'wrong type of behavior ' is. Those decisions are called 'Laws'.

Taking repeat DUI offenders off the streets, keeps repeat DUI offenders off the streets, (you see how that works?).

Stricter back ground checks will not effect illegal gun sales. People who are breaking the law now, will probably continue to break the law. Most gun sales are not of the illegal kind though. Checking the purchasers of legally purchased weapons will reduce the number of people who shouldn't be able to get guns, from getting guns. You see, there's a cause and effect thing going on there. Amazing.

People who want to buy guns illegally can still do so, and like today, they'll do so at their own risk. I don't think stricter gun laws will reduce Wall Street's insider trading problems, or stop people from forging money, or reduce the number of j-walkers, either.

I'm sure these issue have been settled in your mind, or according to whatever sources you frequent. But, as I said at the beginning, laws are enacted by the majority of Americans. The majority of Americans, (not the gun nut crowd, or the 2nd Amendment zealots), are fed up with all of these guns being obtained so easily by anybody who basically has the the ability to enter a gun store. The tide is turning. You don't want to believe me? Who cares? It's still happening.

Maybe I'm lazy but I don't want to have a gun and have to carry it with me at all times.....always on edge and ready to shoot. I don't want to live like that.


What makes you think every gun owner in America carries a gun at all times and has to "live like that"?

Funny thing... most do not. I would estimate a very small percentage of gun owners carry every single day. I would imagine such a decision is dictated by many other factors.

I am a gun owner, my gun has only left the house when I take it to a shooting range to practice. Other than that, it stays at home.

That being said, it is nice to know I have options should I ever feel those options are needed. For example, I can tell you with 100% certainty that if I had to go into New Orleans, especially at night, I'd rather go armed and carrying. If I lived in Baton Rouge, I'd rather be armed.

Really? When was the last law the defined wrong behaviour, specifically?

Repeat Dui's are off the streets, huh? Why then are there so many of them? Do explain that one to me. Shouldn't alcohol be banned, too?

Read up on Prohibition. You're, obviously, not old enough to remember how well that worked.

...and no, I don't believe you. As for who cares? Every politician I vote for, and others just like me. ...obviously, for those unwilling to see, there are more of us (thank god) than there are of you.

When was murder declared unlawful? I think that counts as the law defining 'bad behavior'.

As I said, if people choose to continue to break the law, they do so at their own risk. With that kind of 'logic' there'd be no laws at all because every law get broken sometimes.

Fortunately for the rest of the country, 'others like you', are in the minority. So, as I said previously, it doesn't matter what you think/believe/know/want, the country is moving towards stricter gun laws. Hey, maybe you'll be grandfathered in and won't have to comply. Or, you go the route of the convicted DUI driver, thumb your nose at the law, and take you chances. Again, either way, I don't care.

Oh please, your ideal world is impossible...with movies (probably sponsored by gun industry) like independence day. The gun industry will mass shoot everyone if disarm is allowed.
