    As for showing signs, if someone notices these signs, and doesn't report them, why would that person be restricted from buying a gun legally? If they did report those signs, then the psychiatric and legal system would have to intervene in such circumstances. Until the individual has committed a felony, or otherwise been barred legally from his constitutional rights, these are just hypotheticals.
    What about Universities? This does hold pretty well true for mass shooters as well.

    But let's think about this for a second. You are saying these people shouldn't be barred because they haven't been found to be a danger to themselves or others? Obviously. You can't restrict a right based upon nothing. This isn't Iran. But if probable cause is found, then you should restrict the right.

    I guess what I am getting at is I don't really understand your position. Are you against guns because some people slip through the system? Because if that is the case, well that isn't right. People rarely slip through the system, but more importantly the act of any form of ban is not really the answer to people who are dangerous to themselves or others. The answer is awareness and educating the public.

    Where did you get the impression I am against guns at all? I'm likely one of the most pro-gun rights advocates on the entire site.

    1) A rapist can be shot just as dead with a rifle or a shotgun as with a handgun.

    2) I'm pretty sure a woman carrying a rifle or a shotgun out in the open is much more of a deterrent than a woman who weas a handgun on the hip, especially if it is concealed.

    3) If there are that many rapes occurring in an area then the people can use referendum to change the law so they can carry handguns.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    there is no such thing as a truly "wrong" opinion.

    opinions, by their very nature, cannot be wrong..or right.

    An opinion is a personal view, those can be wrong if they conflict with measured data. Like young earth creationism.

    Generally speaking, long guns (rifles, shotguns) are better than handguns at almost everything, except certain specialized applications...

    1. Close-quarters combat
    2. Concealment
    3. Handiness, lightness, ease of carry and use.


    It's hard enough to get a woman to carry a little automatic, I sure don't see them lugging around shotguns and rifles to go shopping.

    opinions concerning facts, aren't actually opinions.

    if someone says "in my opinion, the Earth is flat", they aren't actually stating an opinion, but a misconception of science.

    if every man, woman, and child in this country had a gun, there would be a ****load of dangerous folks with guns.

    clearly, we need some common sense regulations upon gun ownership and the ability to carry them.
