      No, a God given right to DEFEND yourself. If you want strict gun control fine–All for it. But melt them ALL down–what the government has, what the people have, what police and military use, what criminals use–and let us all go back to carrying swords again. I am all for it believe me.

      The bottom line is–gun control does nothing to stop violent crime. It has done nothing to help Chicago, it has done nothing to help D.C, the UK or the Netherlands. Criminals can, do and will get their guns–PERIOD. So stripping them away from the people and turning them all into helpless sheep is ridiculous.

      There is no way you can defend yourself against madness. All the guns in the world wont protect you from that

      Gun control does not stop violent crime. Therefore we should allow people to carry guns.

      This is a fallacy.

      One takes just a small example in which gun control does not work in order to rebound all other cases in which gun control does work. Gun control helps to prevent small crimes being carried out with guns.

    If someone said, "there was a man in Holland who had blond hair and blue eyes," would any of us find that unusual?
    If someone said, "Charles Starkweather had blond hair and killed a lot of people with a gun," could we make any kind of connection?
    Perhaps it was just his being blond.
    Rosetta had a good idea: wait and learn more.

    SandyBottom, I'm not sure that increased availability of guns would make the world safer.
    I do believe that increased availability and use of sodium thiopental would enhance our safety.

      In case you refer to sodium thiopental as use for lethal injection, your statement is getting moe bizar and primitive
      just read over what you just wrote down!

      You promote people carrying guns and then say you'd like to see more people in the death row??

      that's sic
