Can guns be kept out of the hands of criminals without extra burdens placed on legal/sane owners?


It always appears that the rights of the sane, trained, and law abiding are under threat where guns are concerned. Why is the emphasis not place upon those who do NOT belong to the above group? Can guns be kept out of the hands of criminals without extra burdens placed on legal/sane owners?

    Amen! I wish I could give you thousands of thumbs up! Why do SO MANY people ignore the fact that criminals and anyone dead set on doing harm do not give a hoot about any laws?

    Ah, don't get me started on heart problems :) I had a biggie knock me on my arse last November, completely out of the blue. Even the cardiologist said he was "mystified" as to why it happened to me.

    I've owned handguns for over 30 years. I've never even come close to using one against another person. Gun ownership is a serious thing and it takes more than simple anger to justify lethal force. Most gun owners understand that. Don't be paranoid.

    Exactly how many of the estimated 1/3 of adults who own guns in the US do you personally know? Rather than condemn a large percentage of the population based on your limited experience, maybe you need to seek out a better crowd to associate with.
