    It seems like some perspective is required. HowStuffWorks "What's the most dangerous room in the house?"
    Everyone in the US has the right to purchase a home, but homes are regulated and the appliances in them are aalso subject to regulation. If you are living in an unsafe home, you can be evicted

    Sounds to me like a person had to draw their gun to defend themselves against a criminal with a gun. Wonder who will argue that he should have just taken a round in the chest like a man in the name of crime prevention?

    unsafe guns-ie ones that are not properly proofed or that the safeties fail should not be sold either

    if you don't know what proof testing is-look it up

    if you actually own a gun proof marks used to be common on the barrels

    I guess you didn't pay attention

    according to that college it was not legal for them to have the guns on school property

    furthermore possessing a gun for the purpose of committing a crime makes your possession illegal even if you once legally acquired the weapon


    it is the policy of this [college] System to prohibit the carrying of firearms, knives, or clubs onto any of the System's facilities. The possession of firearms, illegal knives, and prohibited knives on System facilities including parking areas and publicly accessed facilities is a violation of criminal law and Board policies.

    Unsafe guns ie - ones that are sold w/o a background check or are not registered, or are not properly secured when not in use (making them available to their children when the gun owner leaves them home alone to fend for themselves), or are treated as if they're unloaded w/o checking.

    everytime you post you prove you know even less about guns then some originally thought


    every gun sold in the USA before 1993 was sold without a check

    what a stupid statement you have made

    so it is your learned position that every weapon sold in the USA through mid 1993-in other words over 200 years worth was UNSAFE

    you really don't know much about guns do you?
