    Re: Firearms - The Primary Problem

    The primary problem with firearms is a society that has been conditioned to fear them.
    How many people wouldn't take a second look or extra notice if a person was walking around with a pistol on their hip in the open?
    But yet we live in a country where the right to keep and bear arms is protected by our founding documents.
    I don't know how or when our country became fearful of a person with a gun but we need to get over it.
    From the ashes.

    A car is made for transportation. Now and then some one runs over someone on purpose and committs murder with cars.

    A gun is made for killing!!!!! and target practice. so what you are saying is that you would rather have members of your family killed in drive bys or murders than control guns???? I love my guns but not as much as my grand children..

    Having a gun enables you to love your grand children on Earth. If someone or a group of people want brake into your house and trade some lives for goods.


    Repeat after me:

    Cops will not save you from murderous men.

    A phone will not save you from murderous men. It will just record your death in a 911 call.

    A camera will not save you from murderous men. It will just record your death in a youtube video.

    A knife could save you from murderous men. Unless they had a gun.

    A gun could save you from murderous men. Just ask any of the souls that made it to heaven via plane on 9/11.

    I'm saying I would rather have the opportunity to shoot them before they shoot my family.

    One of the major problems the anti-gun side has is their inability to create a rational argument against the right to keep and bear arms.
    Your post does nothing to change this.

    Not that I am complaining, of course.

    Thanks for clarifying my choice and making it easy. I love my guns and enjoy them the was tiger woods enjoys golf, but If we need to save lives, then our guns have to go.

    People would still die from violent crimes, but there would not be many drive by stabbings.
    Untill someone comes up with a way to completely strip the country of all arms period (which I still will never ever agree with) there is no way to "get rid of the guns so they dont have triggers to pull".

    If you give yours up and tell your neighbor he/she has to as well, do you think he/she gives a rats ass what you think or say? The simple answer is no. No one that wants to get a gun cares what you say or think. They do however care if you have a gun yourself, and knowing that you don't I would think you would be target #1 to anyone with one.

    "then our guns have to go." = fail.

    I'm not sure discharging a firearm inside an aircraft is at all advisable; mightn't it cause problems with pressurization?

    Ask an Air Marshall.

    TSA | Transportation Security Administration | Office of Law Enforcement

    Either way, it probably wouldnt be any worse than flying a plane into a heavily populated building.
