    Well that's the great thing about having a personal opinion on an issue: what other people think of it doesn't matter that much when it comes to me having one.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    the problem is a thorough backround check takes less than 15 minutes.anything longer that that is either the state trying to deterr gun buyers with long wait periods or the state is so inept is cant keep a solid record on its own people,in that case gun owners shouldnt be punishes,but rather the state for failing to do what a 3rd grader could keep track of.

    Re: Guns

    Not a gun owner and never even shot one. Am writing a mystery novel and it what does anyone think of a Glock 17 9mm with the seventeen shot clip. Any opinions or advice on this weapon would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Oh a female detective would be using it.

    What do you want to know about them? They're relatively lightweight but the recoil is controllable; they're pretty accurate and reliable. They WILL set off a metal detector, contrary to urban myth. They're too large to conceal in a pocket or an ankle holster; they're normally carried on a belt holster or shoulder holster.


    Anything else you need to know?

I support having no criminal record for released felons. Ex-cons really get screwed out in the real world after release, because they have a criminal record that keeps them from getting gainful employment. It's like a scarlet letter.
    Liz, I agree and disagree. First, in the U.S. we must come to some sort of expectation of what we'd like to prisons to accomplish. I don't believe that Americans agree and I don't think we have enough information. I would agree that no one should want to go to prison and certainly no one should want to return to prison. Can we agree that in America that concept ain't working? Why or why not is a separate issue. Can we agree that what we are doing doesn't work - IF, our goal is to deter people from committing crimes that would result in incarceration and also to greatly decrease the rate of recidivism?

    Oh yeah.... it can be a royal PITA getting that 17th round to go in the magazine. Spring is really stiff at that point.... they make a special tool for forcing that 17th round into the mag.

    Lotta people just load 16 in the mag and one in the breech.

    Depends on context. Gun control has been shown to have different effects on different cultures.

    However, I don't support the concept of "universal gun rights", or whatever. Rights require responsibilities.

    Don't get me wrong, I loves me some 1911.... but that tech is a century old now, and we can do a bit better for combat handguns now.

    Yeah, I know, I'm goin' to hail for saying that....

    I needed to know whether a woman say 125 pounds small to medium frame would be able to handle that weapon with the longer clip or should i go to a standard clip. Even a different gun like the Glock 19?
