There is much to say on both sides of this argument and reading here on ATS one would imagine it has all been said.. Maybe not
While there is definitely an argument to be made about not having guns in the United States, that argument was ruled moot in the early 1600,, We have
guns, we have always had guns and nothing short of magic or an impossible massive home raid will ever change that.
So we have guns.. Now what?
Maybe we need to start looking at this for what it is. A People Issue. For a fact, it is people using those guns to hurt and kill. Another fact is
that those guns would never get up on their own and kill anyone. A further fact is that if any of those killers was convicted in his pursuit, and it
appears they were, they would have found other means to do their deeds.
I have guns. My children were raised around guns. My children were taught to shoot and care for those guns. No one in my family, outside of military
service, has ever killed another human being with a gun. I can show you THOUSANDS if not MILLIONS of households just like mine.
Using that template, one must come to the conclusion the GUN is not the problem.
"When searching for an answer, eliminate everything that is impossible and whatever is left, no matter how improbable, must be your answer"
I also have to shake my head at how many people are jumping on the band wagon of these politicians wanting to take away our 2nd Amendment. When did we
all of a sudden start trusting politicians? Do any of you have any doubt that those very same politicians will be owning the very guns they outlaw?
Gun Control.. HMMMMMM Is it because of all the violence?
Gun Control Myths
National violent crime rates that soared for 30 years from the early 1960s began to decrease markedly since 1993. Last December the FBI reported
that murder and other violent crime rates fell again by 6.4% during the first half of 2011 compared with the same period in 2010. A Gallup poll
indicates that “Americans’ preference regarding gun laws is generally that the government enforce existing laws more strictly and not pass new
Well now.. That certainly does not fit with Gun Control.. HMMMMMM
Do we take away our very own right to defend ourselves?
A widely-known study conducted by Gary Kleck and Marc Gertz in the 1990s found that there were somewhere between 830,000 and 2.45 million U.S.
defensive gun uses annually.

How about Mrs. Gun Control Herself...
Did Sarah Brady, aka "Mrs. Gun Control," violate Delaware state law when she purchased a high-powered rifle for her son? In her new memoir, A
Good Fight, Brady reveals that she bought James Brady Jr. a Remington .30-06 for Christmas 2000. "I can't describe how I felt when I picked up that
rifle, loaded it into my little car and drove home," she writes. "It seemed so incredibly strange: Sarah Brady, of all people, packing heat."
Strange, yes, since Mrs. Brady has for the past two decades been the most visible leader in the campaign to disarm America. Although we have no laws
against hypocrisy, the question has arisen over whether Sarah Brady broke one of the laws she helped foist on her fellow citizens. The New York Daily
News first raised this question when it noted that her book account "suggests that she did not have her son checked, as required by Delaware state
law." The Daily News reported that Delaware Justice Department spokeswoman Lori Sitler had stated that the purchase could be illegal under state law
if Brady did not also say who she was buying the gun for and submit his "name, rank and serial number" for a full check. "You can't purchase a gun
for someone else," Sitler was quoted as saying. "That would be a 'straw purchase.' You've got a problem right there."
Make no mistake about people, they don't want your guns, they want your FREEDOMS
Something so important the Fathers felt it necessary to make it the SECOND Amendment in the BILL of RIGHTS, should not be dismissed by the sad group
we now call leaders.
