    Anyway, you are taking a few news clippings of gun owners acting irresponsibly and literally making a federal case of it. Psychos will get guns, and you know it. Meanwhile, the people who most legitimately need protection (i.e. poor minorities) will be locked out.

    I don't want MA to be forced to allow me in with a handgun any more than I want their elected representatives dictating what Texans can and can't do. That's about all I have on the issue.
    I don't honestly think we're far off in terms of what we want, and I don't think you're wrong that there is an element of elitism to requiring training. I also think you're right that maniacs will find a way to get a hold of weapons regardless of laws. Frankly I think liberals using every tragedy as a chance for political points is in poor taste at best and ghoulish opportunism at worst.

    If anything, gun regulations could help untrained people who hurt themselves and others including the Plaxico Burresses of the world, from injuring themselves or others. There's an average of around 600 deaths per year due to accidental shootings so I think that's a little more significant than press clippings. There's a lot of guns that make it into criminals hands because incompetent gun owners leave them in unlocked cars and other places where they're easy to steal.

    I don't think it's a magic bullet(no pun intended), I just think that gun ownership and the politics that support it would be dealing with a little less severe pressure from public opinion and the media, if they were held to a higher standard.

    Criminals get a bad rap here, getting ahold of guns illegally and all, but they're just exercising 2nd amendment rights in its purest form. Want gun? Got gun.

    Secondly, this argument of good guys needing guns cuZ the bad guys have 'em doesn't hold up. Are you then saying if we successfully eliminate bad guys with guys, then we'd be cool with good guys not having guns, either?

    Back to criminals getting stuff illegally, thank goodness for them or we'd be in a world without weed, Cuban cigars, knockoffs, high-powered shower heads, Kinder eggs, et al. Wouldve put a damper on our lives, for sure.

    Hello margo, is this a question?

    If so, please complete the statement with the appropriate punctuation.

    We don't play that run-on shit around here.

    We did that for you, margo...and you come in here with your half-ass punctuation and lame spam attempt?

    Show some appreciation for the forum that welcomed you here with open arms to express your love of the Dallas Cowboys.

    I'm ashamed that your first move was to shove this in our faces.

    Are you really a football fan?

    Or are you just some dumb bored-ass robot who couldn't find any better place to post your trash?

    When I saw your username I expected so much more.

    Haven't been this let down by a new user in quite some time.
