Master Wildfire Do you realize, that convicted felons are *LEGALLY EXEMPT* from *ALL* gun registrations? (Haynes v. United States, 390 U.S. 85 (1968) What would be better: Anyone who can't be trusted to be both *ARMED* and *FREE*, should be confined.
Master Wildfire Actually, if you'll research DC and Chicago's PRE-Ban and Present violent crime statistics, you'll discover you're wrong. There is no support that GC reduces suicide, Japan has *NO GUNS* and *DOUBLE* the U.S. suicide rates. As for gun accidents numbers they are nearly insignificant.
Master Wildfire Do the police in your area carry guns? *WHY*? What do they *KNOW*, that you are obviously ignorant about? Psychiatrist Sarah Thompson, M.D. addressed your feelings of those who accept personal responsibility, Google: "Raging Against Self Defense: A Psychiatrist Examines The Anti-Gun Mentality."
Master Wildfire Why should a cop be expected to risk his life, to save something so insignificant (the person's life), that even the owner isn't willing to protect it? And as for Blacks, if a "hate crime" is *REALLY* a threat: Why *WOULDN'T* they *ARM* themselves? Gun control's roots is Racism.
Master Wildfire Sorry Jack, but Sarah's lack of honest research on the subject that *SHE* chose to write about, make pretty clear the fact that she is indeed an incompetent writer. I sincerely hope, she will learn from this, and not repeat her mistakes.
Master Wildfire Can you name *ANY REAL* common sense proposals? Proposals that *ONLY* effect the law-abiding, are *NOT* common sense, they are instead stupidity *MISLABELLED* "common sense". Name the wrongful use of a gun, that isn't *ALREADY* illegal. Is rape, robbery or murder *LEGAL* if you don't use a gun?
Master Wildfire *THINK* Sal: How many of those deaths are the *ILLEGAL* acts of *CRIMINALS*? Could you explain how you believe disarming the *CRIMINALS'* intended victims, is supposed to make the victims *SAFER*? Where has your belief in: "The more helpless you are, the *SAFER* you are" actually saved lives?
Master Wildfire I'm sorry, but that is baseless nonsense and nothing more. Proof: Name the U.S. Cities with *STRICT* gun control laws, *AND* crime rates *LOWER* than the national average. Please *THINK*! Do you *HONESTLY* believe those who commit rape, robbery and murder, would obey gun control laws?
Master Wildfire This incident serves to shows what happens to good people who fail to accept personal responsibility for their own personal safety. Almost *EVERYONE* there could *LEGALLY POSSESS a GUN*, yet no one at the shooting had a gun *EXCEPT* the murderer.
