I have 2 guns one for each of ya
Like most Americans who want guns you use the BS line of safety and security but the truth is it makes you feel like more of a man.
My leg to stand on is the statistics, forget 3rd world countries and look at countries like the US. We all do fine without guns and Im sure youd all get by as well

You realize they want us to have guns, right? They won't take them away.
Why do I say this?
One, you can't take away that many guns, they don't have enough brainwashed soldiers to do so.
Nope, if a lot of people are armed, and people revolt, they'll wind up killing each other, and not TPTB.
gun owners dead.
They're playing you. And all this BS about them trying to take your guns is all a part of the plan.edit on 5-4-2012 by Ghost375 because: (no reason given)
The general consensus from that side is that an armed Citizenary is able to resist any tyranny that the government might decide to try.

Yes, there are laws for ownership. Heck, I'd be in a favor of a law requiring all potential gun owners to take a safety course before purchase...but who's going to pay for that?

I live in a community where the Police Dept. has a program where fathers or mothers and their Sons and Daughters get together once a week for several weeks and teach both the Parents and the Kids everything there is to know about Guns of all types.
This is done so that both the Parents and the Kids understand the dangers and responsibilities of owning or coming across a Gun and the proper way to handle them as well as treat a weapon as if it was loaded whether it is or not.
This program has great sucess and has lowered accidental deaths of both adults and children as they are taught that a Gun is not a toy and once a kid or adult understands how the weapon works as well as how to properly store, maintain, clean, license, load and unload, fire and how the weapons safety is enguaged as well as how each type of Gun can be trigger locked as well as what a both a Kid and an Adult should do when encountering a person improperly handeling or shooting a weapon.
Knowledge is the key to keeping people safe. Split Infinity
Sounds like a great program... In rural areas the culture is quite different ...... I could see the urbanites getting up in arms about this but I would rather see a kid know and understand what a gun can do ... gun education should be taught in schools and in some areas it is as important a sex ed.....
The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.

During my hunter's safety course (years ago) I had to demonstrate to the instructor that I knew how to handle my shotgun in a safe manner, how to load, how to unload and how to clear a jam. I didn't pull the trigger, but I had to demonstrate proficiency. What's wrong with that?

Sounds like a great program. One that could fit into many communities.
