Gun Control

“To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and
law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own
conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the
law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the
lawless will allow…
For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to
accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals.
Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate
themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding.”

    Drrik,
    Amen to that. Just think if there had been other armed citizens in that movie place that nut job may have gotten shot down before he injured so many people.
    The criminals will always have guns and prey on those of us who don’t have guns.

    I meant with the 420 million rounds of hollowpoint 0.40 caliber cartridges that Homeland Security purchased, that is illegal to use in warfare per the Geneva Convention and not useful for training.

    Unless they are preparing for some sort of full scale invasion such that the military would also need to be involved, it seems more than a little worrisome about which Americans they are going to be shooting.
