    80% of those who are murder victims involving a firearm are criminals who cannot legally own guns and 80% of those who commit such murders are banned from possessing a gun. anyone who possesses a gun with criminal intent is also engaging in felony violations.

    I apologize if I mistook you for a gun grabber. Glad you support the 2A.
    I think if it were up to him he'd implement far more restrictive gun laws. He is a supporter of anti gun politicians such as Obama

    I shot a mugger who along with his homey, assaulted me. So I was safer. so were the two muggers. The gunshot wound instantly stopped the attack upon me and the other mugger suffered only the indignity of crapping himself. If I did not have the gun, I would have had to use the butterfly knife I had in my pocket meaning both muggers would have been cut in the rapid multiple slashing patters in silat. meaning both would have been seriously injured or killed

    you using one incident is really sloppy intellectually
