Drugs are illegal. Guess what, people still go out onto the street and get them.
When guns are illegal - guess what - criminals will still go out into the street and get them and now their unstoppable aren't they?
(What a cash cow we're going to be creating for the criminal dealer, eh?)
There is nothing to stop that criminal from breaking into your home, killing your whole family, and taking what's yours. And you will have simply NO
WAY to defend yourself.
Because law abiding citizens are going to follow the rules - but I guarantee you - criminals don't.

It seemed to me that this talk coming in the immediate aftermath of discussing the non-action on felons, et . Trying to acquire guns, that this has
more to do with enforcing current statutes. I coukd well be wrong, I hope not.
As to having "no way to defend yourself" if you don't have guns in your home...I mean, we're saving for our guns now, but don't have any yet. I
shouldn't have said that on the internet, because if anyone traces my IP, they'll just come waltzing right in now. I'm surprised they haven't
already simply broken through the locks, fought off a 3-dog attack, withstood pepper spray and tasers, while dodging several blows with a good ol'
fashioned Louisville Slugger.
/sarcasm off...really, people who believe a gun is the only thing that will keep them safe probably isn't a great candidate for gun ownership as it
is. Its the Last Choice, people! If there really are more than a tiny percentage of people who believe that they are essentially doomed in all
scenarios, unless they draw their piece at every sign of potential trouble. I am a gun ownership proponent, and soon to be a gun owner, and the last
thing I want is for trigger-happy cowards.to be walking around with loaded weapons.h
