the problem as I see it is the The Second Amendment. you can dance around it all you want but this law was adopted in The December 15, 1791 were in
2012 thats 221 years ago. the world has changed since then and at this point with everyone having guns. because it is there right to. the culture of
guns I call it. there will allways be cases like this trayvon and many many others get rid of the guns get them off the street out of schools out of
homes even the police actually especially the police. make them illegal the only solution or the streets will/are becoming a firing range.
what I wonder will happen technology develops personal forcefields that renders guns useless?.............
Yeah right, because no one ever killed anyone before guns were invented...........
Your statement is paramount to saying that the reason we have people killed by drunk drivers is due to the fact that we own cars.
I have said it on every anti-gun topic on here and I will say it again. Guns are inanimate objects, they cannot DO anything. They cannot hate, feel
jealousy, be consumed with greed, or decide to rob or murder anyone ....period! A gun doesn't kill anyone, people kill people the gun is just the
tool of choice just as the bow and arrow was during the Archaic period and the sword was during the middle ages.
Take away guns and people will still kill people whether it be with a baseball bat, knife, stone, golf club, slingshot, car, antifreeze in their kool
aide, pencil to the jugular, shoestring, plastic bag over the head, shovel, it doesn't matter what weapon. People are going to continue to kill
people not because of guns but because of the American "culture of violence".
We are a nation that is fed violence on a daily basis, on the television, in movies, music, and video games. Its kind of effed up.....God forbid we
show a woman's breast on TV but its okay for all of the "police drama" shows to come onevery night and show violence. Kind of makes you wonder what
TPTB are smoking. I would much rather see a naked person on TV than violence and killing every night.
This is why my wife and I monitor what our teenagers watch for movies and no one in our house hardly ever watches tv. We do not want our children
corrupted by the garbage and are raising them to be respectful of all life and people and have morals and values. You want to stop the violence in
America? Its not going to be done by banning guns, its going to be done by stopping the culture of violence. We are quickly becoming a country with no
morals and no respect for ourselves, each other, or our heritage.
As I said on several other threads, I own over 30 guns and although all but 2 are locked in a gun safe I never worry that anyone in our home is going
to kill anyone unless its an intruder. If an intruder came into our home anyone of us from myself to my 12 yo son is more than capable of handling a
hun and the intruder would receive 2 to center mass. I am ex military and was a marksman and range instructor and every member of my family respects
guns and is very proficient with a firearm.
No sir you are wrong, the problem isn't the 2nd Amendment, its the moral declined of our society. Just as the prohibition of drugs has done nothing
to stop drug use, prohibition of guns will do nothing to reduce violent crime because criminals do not obey the law. If they did there would be no
need to suggest prohibiting guns in the first place because there would be no criminals to commit the murders in the first place.
