    The very purpose of a gun is to shoot at others. It was invented for that purpose. That is its intended usage. You need not shy away from that reality. It is what it is.
    If someone drives drunk, on the wrong side of the road, running other vehicles off the road and then slams into a house full of people... have they misused the car? According to the above logic... NO! A car is meant for driving. As long as one is driving it, then it is being used as intended. What about prescription meds? Take the bottle instead of the dose? Why not? Pills are for taking, and as long as they're being taken then they are being used as intended. But what instructions are there for guns? Gun law.

    Using something illegally/improperly is misusing it. I'm not sure how someone could get along in life without understanding that.

    In the US, one has the freedom to choose NOT to have a gun as well. But if you want to start a campaign, have at it. I won't get in the way. I wish everybody had a gun. That way the criminal element could be taken out of the gene pool just that much quicker. That's why I probably wouldn't be sucessful politician. LOL!

    Here is someone who also thinks along the lines of more gun restrictions.

    He says make all guns illegal. And HE'S a professional. Watch and learn.

    What he said.

    Imagine yourself being an armed robber walking into a McDonald's pulling a gun on the teenage girl at the cash register. You turn around and see a half dozen guns pointing at you. Did you watch the film?

    most guns that end up in the hands of criminals, were originally bought legally.

    if we limited all handgun sales in every state, to one per month per person, criminals would have a much harder time getting guns.

    No doubt. But the operative words here are, "guns that end up in the hands of criminals." We both agree that guns, regardless of how they were initially purchased, do end up in the hands of criminals. Is it your suggestion that only criminals should have these weapons?
