    Since most incidents of gun violence are committed by criminals, yes it is my reason. You should worry more about the illegal gun trade than the legal along with the underlying reasons...

    That's doesn't prove anything to anyone who doesn't know you. Like I said, 'anecdotal evidence'.

    Posted a couple of links. How sad is it that the NRA opposes technology that would limit the usage of handguns?

    In the words of the NRA, this might lead to "opening the door to a ban on all guns that do not possess the government-required technology."

    Except that no one at this point is even suggesting this technology be government mandated. Given the millions of legal guns currently in circulation, I am not even certain that such a requirement could even be technically or logistically feasible, let alone desirable.

    But... leaving that aside for a moment, how deluded are people if they think that this is the beginning of some kind of gun-armageddon? No one is suggesting you give up normal guns, no one is suggesting that we get rid of them. This is just one way of protecting people from gun-related accidents and tragedies. In the words of the Daily Kos article,
    Yah! More Big Brother watching us all!

    If you have a problem with accidental child death, you need to looks elsewhere. Water and gravity kill more kids than accidental shootings.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Actually more incidents are committed with a legal gun owner's own gun. You should worry more about gun owners who never took a gun safety course.

    And I only care about the opinions of those that do know me. You don't, so your opinion is of little value with regards to my personal situation...

    Rather, the new "Moms" group has attacked the NRA for obstructing back grounds checks via private seller loopholes, their fixation with AR-15 clones, their expansion of "Stand Your Ground" laws to new states, and support of "carry a weapon to a bar" type laws.

    If this group can keep affirming the Second Amendment and only attack NRA obsessions, my guess is that they are not only going to attract anti gunner, but moderate gun owners as well.
    You cannot “…keep affirming the Second Amendment…” by proposing and advocating ways to violate it.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    No, I drop in here to exchange ideas, not defend my character. Your opinion is as valid as mine even if it is wrong...
