  • Who did you scare off?  I don't understand.
  • Thank you very much for posting this.  It's true that this is a common mistake.  I hope they keep working to improve Kevlar and hopefully one day, make a bomb-resistant material. Also, I hope that Kevlar expands to police hats and some kind of face …
  • I think some people are trying to, but others aren't.  It really just depends on the individual.  I think for the most part, people are trying to get guns banned because they think it's an easy solution to the shootings.
  • Yeah, but to be honest, most places don't even enforce the age limits on things like that.  I grew up in the country and was able to buy cigarettes for my grandfather when I was 10.  I would get candy or a soda and some cigarettes for him.  The groc…
  • I agree with that.  Guns DO help, but they are in no way a guarantee.  I just don't think taking them away is the answer.  You have to treat the underlying problem.  It's like if you spill liquid on the counter.  You don't just mop up the floor and …
  • I agree with that.  There is an upside and a downside to guns.  I see a lot of people saying, "if you own a gun, you can defend yourself", but there's no guarantee.  I agree with them to the point of it increases your chance of survival, but if the …
  • I completely agree.  It is all just speculation at this point.  We have no idea what could've happened.  I think this whole post just went in a direction that actually took the blame and focus off of the terrorists and got us fighting (again) about …
  • Okay.  I see what you are saying now. 
  • I like the idea of gun handling courses.  But I'm from the country and we were all taught by our fathers or mothers or uncles, etc.  I do think that there should be a test, just like when getting your learner's permit to drive.  Just because you wer…
  • That is true.  You never know what could make someone go crazy.  However, guns or no guns, they will still hurt people.  Plans for bombs are on the internet and prisoners kill each other without the aid of firearms. 
  • I agree.  It does make it harder, but most of the time, the people who are selling guns illegally are getting them from overseas.  Some countries sell guns cheaper.  The arms dealers buy them and jack up the cost for the ones who can't buy them here…
  • I agree with you, Maelalove.  I don't think that the terrorist would have run away.  Like you said, they are trained to die, therefore they don't fear it.  I also agree that the sight of a gun would have drawn fire, as they would want to get rid of …
  • Actually, Maelalove, that is exactly what I am trying to say.  Teach them all the facts and let them decide for themselves.  Teach children everything you know about guns, good and bad, experiences and stats, and let them figure out how they feel.
  • I disagree.  I have held a gun before.  I have never felt any rush of power.  To me, it's no different than a knife or a hammer.  A gun is just a gun.  I appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into them.  I like the looks of antiques, but holding a …
  • I agree.  I live in a rural area, so nearly everyone I know has a gun.  Hardly anyone has a problem with background checks.  The ones that do shouldn't have guns in the first place.  Not because they don't want the background checks, but because I'v…
  • I agree, plus I think gang violence has become so commonplace that people just don't notice it like they used to.  I also don't think the corruption of the police by gangs is just based in greed.  It is also fear.  There are more gang members than c…
  • I agree, but at the same time when that's all they see...  It's no different from when Americans judge all Muslims based on what extremists are doing. 
  • I phrased that incorrectly.  I mean "what were you saying is a false flag?"  I knew the meaning of the word. 
  • I don't see how he was able to pass a law without Congress' approval.  I will have to check this out.  This seems like a rumor.  The whole purpose of Congress is to limit the president's power so that we don't have a totalitarian state on our hands.…
  • I agree.  Taking away people's guns won't do any good.  They will either find other ways to get them or find a different weapon.  I think the only laws that need to be put in place are harsher punishments for offenders. 
  • "You are sadly deceived. This is what the government wants you to think. It's all a big play and people like ou are falling for it."Harpazzo, what do you mean I'm being deceived?  What am I "falling for"?  If I'm being accused of being gullible, I w…
  • I understand what you are saying now.  I just read I wrong the first time. 
  • How can people think that the NRA controls the government if the government is trying to get guns banned?  That doesn't even make any sense.

  • I agree that you should be smart enough to know when to pull the trigger and when not to.  However, some people don't think about that.  And if they are law-abiding citizens, they can still buy that gun.  I think that some kind of training should be…
  • I don't think that Obama wants us all weakened.  I believe that he wants to do something big and showy to get public opinion back on his side.  I think he wants to go out with the legacy of "I stopped the gun violence" and he just chose the wrong ro…
  • Well said, rbower.  I'm glad you put in that you don't leave them loaded.  Not because I was worried that you did, but because it's important that people know there are still responsible gun owners around.
  • That's very true.  I think to most people who want to get rid of them, it's about accessibility.  They think if you take away their weapons, they won't hurt people.  That's just not true. As I said before, they will just find illegal ways to get gun…
  • But that is exactly my point.  THERE SHOULD BE NO FEAR OF A GUN ITSELF.  What I was trying to get at to people who want to ban guns is that guns are inanimate objects.  I wanted to find out their fears and help put them at ease.  I wanted to find a …
  • It's on both sides.  I know a lot of pro-gun people who are so eager to go after anti-gun people that they also tend to forget that there are criminals making their side look bad.  I'm not talking about all pro-gun people, just some.
  • Actually, as someone who has used welfare in the past (my father left us when I was four and my sister was eight; my mother didn't have a job at the time), if you are being honest about what you make, assistance doesn't help you out as much as you t…
