    hell of a reason
    care to show where you got your .0001% data from?

    in terms of population, japan is half our size. why does that have an impact on the question of hand gun control?
    yes, an amendment would be required to restrict hand guns. so, let's do it. solve the gun problem

    why would I want to pass an amendment banning handguns cause some people don't want others defending themselves? The better question is if you don't like people having the right to own handguns, why don't YOU move to a country that doesn't allow them?

    I guess to some people, "freedom" means "anyone can do whatever they want on another person's property"

    Laws aren't made on the basis of one situation.

    This really hits me hard. In all pharmacies I've worked for it was against company policy to bring a weapon to work for the purpose of self defense. There were no security guards and in the event of a robbery we were instructed to give robbers whatever they want and avoid all eye contact and hope that the robber chooses not to kill anyone and that compliance would most likely result in them leaving with stolen medications and no human lives being harmed.

    The pharmacist and technicians were murdered execution style. They gave into his demands and were told to kneel down facing against the wall and were then shot and killed. Personally, had the pharmacist owned a gun or the staff had their own they could have defended themselves instead of being murdered unarmed execution style. This is a very very sad tragedy.
    well clearly the estate of the dead pharmacists should have a righteous claim against their employers for their deaths. If you prevent people from defending themselves and refuse to provide them protection, its certainly forseeable that this sort of tragedy could happen.

    thought you were a member of the legal profession, which should cause you to then recognize that the deceased agreed to the conditions of employment. your proposed action would be immediately tossed

    He literally said nothing about gun laws or prohibition.

    i have lived in a country which forbade the possession of handguns. it was a peaceful experience. i would want my own country to share that sense of safety that comes from being rid of handguns
