    Depends on which side of the muzzle you're on.

    (This thread is not about the 2nd Amendment or banning guns, its about personal choices.)
    481 votes against? I want you to show me a list.

    My neighbor has a handgun for protection. How does her being armed hurt the poor and middle class?

    How is that? the only people we hurt by being armed are the criminals we apprehend, wound or kill with our firearms

    I guess you think protecting our property from the poor hurts them.

    deluded is your entire position on guns. you sound like a kid who has never been introduced to the real world

    80% of US suicides are by gun, but not necessarily by the owner.

    In gun households with children who where forbidden access to them, 22% of the kids admitted to having handled them, unknown to the parents.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    and Japan's suicide rate is much higher and they don't have any legal handguns

    so My attitude is who cares? I'd rather have someone shoot themselves than do what that transgendered kid did a couple miles from my house-walk in front of a semi on an interstate. not only did the suicide die, she could have killed others if the truck lost control and there now is an innocent truck driver who is blameless but will spend the rest of his life knowing he killed some kid. If she had ate a gun in her bathroom it would have been better than what she did

    He's on the side of criminals. I guess he figures that anyone who is able to make an honest living is “The Wealthy”, and defines “the poor and middle class” as those who make their living through robbery.
    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.
