Gun Laws/Safety. Do our current laws help to prevent loss of life and ensure the safety of others?


Hayden, Idaho -a 2 year old boy accidentally reached in his mothers purse, a weapon discharged and his mother was killed. Veronica J. Rutledge, 29, (concealed weapons permit) was shopping with her son & 3 other children when this incident occurred. In a “civilized” society I can not understand the obsession to have guns at the airport, hip, bars/restaurants, etc. Gun laws should take into account public safety. While this is a tragedy, the incident could have resulted in the compromised safety of any shopper at Walmart that day. Do weapons owners have the right to jeopardize others safety?

    Actually, if you were familiar with the statistics you would know that violent crime is decreasing, not increasing. It's just that the gun tragedies that do happen are more publicized now.
