The whole fascination with firearms kind of eludes me. But like any other interest, or whatever reason one chooses to posses a firearm, It doesn't bother me unless you go shooting me with it. I'll just stay away from them like anything else that I dislike.

But isn't there a compromise somewhere? Banning concealed firearms maybe? That way you aren't stripped of your right to own and it's in your house for your family's protection. If it's legit to conceal firearms, then there is a much smaller window of opportunity to prevent a person from pulling a firearm and doing something tragic. I know that seems silly since it's supposed to be concealed, but what do people need to be doing carrying guns around in public anyway?

This, coming from a Canadian; so please don't shoot me! (sorry!)

the right to defend ones self is the ultimate freedom in life right alongside the right to end ones own.
if you rellenquish your own right to defend yourself, then who do you think will do it for you?

criminalizing people for their possessions is immoral. actions make criminals not possessions, thoughts or words.
you cant take away that which is easily created from spare parts out of the hardware store, anyway.

you want an example of what happens when you ban something that people want?
look at drugs.
they are almost internationally banned and yet every highschool kids knows exactly where to go to get anything they want. why do we pretend we can legislate peoples desires and morals. that is what made the US constitution so great, it didnt pretend to be your mommy and daddy or uncle sam. its unfortunate that religion and fear have corrupted our law and been used against us for so long that we start to believe it.
eventually there will be a generation born that is totally complacent and malleable into anything those in control want. a slave race willing to work for basic sustenance under the daily control of those who run the world.
are you willing to become a slave for the rich and powerfull? or would you rather have the means to defend yourself? are you willing to give up all your basic rights? would you apply for a speech permit so you could exercise your right to speak freely or stfu if you didnt have one? are you willing to the let state run the media and censor what we are able to learn and read in the name of greater safety? if people are granted the knowledge to be able to make guns, then you wont have to worry about being shot by a homemade zip gun or blown up with a homemade bomb.
i for one wlecome our overlords and look forward to living blindly in ignorance in the name of greater safety for my family
i dont know why anyone wouldnt

arent you the one calling people barbaric for wanting to own weapons to defend themselves?
didnt you call it a civilized society where barbarism isnt needed or wanted?
and then you talk like a backwoods hillbilly, embarrassing.
but go on, i enjoy watching your double standard.

so calling people barbarians is different when you do vs when i do it?
you called me a barbarian because i carry a firearm. you compared me to less civilized peoples.

i did the same to you.
civilized people know, at least, basic grammar and punctuation.


and now youre trying to say its ok that you called me a barbarian and less civilized but not that i call you the same?
more embarrassment...

Yes, we could all become heroes, like Robert De Niro in 'Taxi Driver'!

I think that people should have guns but not high capacity rounds or clips. Lots of people in my state LOVE to go hunting and I enjoy target practice myself, with a shotgun or a small magnum handgun. A majority of the people use them right, it tends to be the sanity of that small percentage that gets a bad rap.

is 10 rounds safer than 20 rounds?
when you target practice, are you more likely to kill someone if theres more bullets in the gun?

Less rounds means less potential deaths in incidence of a shooting though...

So we all get treated like murderers and thugs?
Im kind of offended at the idea of innocent citizens being treated like criminals.
Its like punishing people for pre-crimes. Im not sure what country youre from but here in america, the land of the free, its against the law to treat people that way.
Freedom loving people tend to not like being treated like criminals
