~Cause it sounds to me (reading the redundant gun control threads) -like most of you would happily give guns to three year olds.
Anyways serious question.

wow, do you exaggerate much ??
3 yr olds
when or where has any firearm enthusiast promoted arming 3 yr olds ???
as for your opening question, i defer to Jefferson and the entire state of Virginia who said it best ...
"No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms [within his own lands or tenements]"
it's even written into the VA State Constitution
IF a freeman is healthy enough to live amongst us, then he/she is healthy enough to own a firearm.
IF a freeman is too 'defective' to live amongst us, then correct that problem, do not make everyone else suffer for the ailments of a few.
as for violent criminals, why are they released amongst us again ??
once released, if they are freemen, why should they be restricted ??
and, since x-cons (even violent ones) get firearms anyway, how have they been restricted
via gun control laws ??
plenty of insane ppl get fireams legally, how would any of these laws change that ??
how would such laws restrict a mentally ill person from doing business on the black market ??
now that i've answered your question, please, return the courtesy.
