My son and I have been arguing about this issue for days now. He is against gun control, and I am for it; however, many think that the assault rifle ban cost the Democrats the house and senate in 1994 and that gun control is a dead issue. That being the case, I am thinking about buying a gun and getting a concealed weapon permit (even though I would probably never use the permit). Why? I would trust myself with a gun, but I do not trust all the other people who have guns.
