    This was really close to where I live, Samson is right on the Florida Alabama border, this is some sad stuff.

    I wish you guys would stop arguing over gun legislation, that has nothing to do with this story.

    If guns were outlawed he could just as easily buy an illegal gun on the black market, which most of guns in the united states are.


    Over 70% of guns owned in the US are done so illegally by criminals.

    Legal guns decrease crime, because when people are armed in there homes criminals are less likely to rob and the like. Home invasion spiked right after UK banned firearm sale.

    Nobody is arguing guns are bad, but the fact is we have to deal with this and not act to hastily.

    Yeah, it's pretty sad that in Alabama of all places, people were sitting around watcing the shooting and not one neighbor either had access to a gun or was willing to get it, if they had one.

    My old man had an M1 rifle and I can assure you he'd have dragged it out and shot that SOB if he had a clear field of fire and a good backstop.

    Not at all...in fact its quite logical. Gun fanatics would obviously know the most about guns because it is their hobby. They are also the ones most likely to oppose any kind of restriction, reasonable or otherwise.

    I believe everyone should own a handgun and know how to use it. I think anything bigger and not single-shot shouldn't be in the hands of the public. Does that make me a gun-nut or an anti-gun nut?

    The only reasonable restrictions are those putting extra penalties in ex-felons for using them illegally.

    No restrictions on type or quantity of weapons owned by an individual are permitted by the Second Amendment, nor would such restrictions be considerable reasonable by an objective person, such as me.

    Anti-gun nut.

    You're saying everyone should be required to own a dueling pistol, and not allowed anything else, if I'm interpreting your "in the hands of the public" correctly.

    All that is is banning the legal sale of the guns, people can still get a hold of automatic weapons, just not through legal mean.

    hoplophobes, tend to argue for restrictions on things they are ignorant of. they are the ones who support restrictions on things that are never reasonable.

    Whch is quite natural, given that they understand the subject far better than those that look to impose restrictions on the law abiding.

    Glad to see that you agree that the anti-gun crowd argues from a position of ignorance.
