Well, I think if some people didn't abuse the gun laws to have to their advantage, like stocking up on them in case of Armageddon, then I don't
think you guys would have that many issue with the guns. You have gangs, mafia, cartels, smucks, doomsday people, collectors that buy them and ammo,
left and right, and shoot innocent citizens either on purpose, or by accident. I don't think you would have this many problems with your gun laws if
they just settle down. Ahem, Texas..
I know one guy that used to walk down my block with his gun swinging on his hip. Like really is that necessary? It's a family neighborhood. Then you
got guys that turn into drunks at bars pulling out their guns, world is getting insane.

So in your mind collecting or "stockpiling" guns is abusing gun laws?......Really? I'm sorry but I don't remember the second amendment stating
that the people have a right to posses "x" number of guns. And "stockpiling" guns in case of Armageddon or doomsday is contributing to gun
I haven't seen any gun collectors or preppers going around shooting innocent people, but you know what I have seen an increase of? Adrenaline drunken
cops shooting innocent people!
As far as the man walking around your block with his gun, do you think criminals just stay in shanty neighborhoods? Is there some honor creed that
criminals comply with that prevents them from going into "family neighborhoods"?
No the problem with guns in America is irrational people that can't quite seem to understand that a gun is an inanimate object and can not act on
it's own. They would rather blame the gun for the violence than the true culprit which is the decline in our society and rampant desensitizing of
violence via tv, movies, music, video games, etc.
Even if we lived in a world where the firearm had never been invented people would still kill people. And don't give me that "guns make it easier"
crap. Hell if I wanted someone dead and didn't have a gun there are many ways it could be done. Bow and arrow, knife, car, hammer, axe, slingshot, or
Not a single gun has ever killed anyone, but plenty of lowlifes kill people with guns!
I guess I should end my post now since I am a prepper and have over 30 guns in my gunsafe. I may accidentally shoot myself or someone else just
because I have all these guns.
