  • @tangascootac:   Reporting unscrupulous people to the proper  authorities is pretty self explanatory and promoting a peace full life style would be acting in in a way you would want other people to act around you in a peaceful way like not breaking …
  • I think being more vigilant in promoting a peaceful lifestyle and reporting unscrupulous people to the proper  authorities would be a start.   
  • @ChristtopherABrown, @ianagmdc It's like saying if we are all nice to each other there is no need for violence.
  • @tangascootac:  I am not trying to avoid your question but I don't have an answer.
  • @Anonytated said,  "Now I'm sure a lot of people are concerned about the wrong household having a gun. This is something about gun control that I lean left on (if we're going to get political.) That's where I believe we need heavier background check…
  • ChristopherABrown   Is there a way to get effective mental health care and education of parents and community relating to values and human purposes other than ptacticing and creating good habits.
  • Afreenish So what type of gun research do you want to see be done.  Maybe we can get some research done here. 
  • @higgsb:  None of my guns ever lead to a fatality or homicide.  I think you meant less criminals with guns would lead to less fatalities and homicides That is totally different.  If you didn't mean that please explain.
  • ianagmdc  Could you please clarify.  Did you mean military style weapons which are made to look like military weapons, weapons that are used by soldier, someplace where civilians can buy military weapons or something else. 
  • The sensible gun laws are already in place.  The problem is criminals are breaking those laws. Nothing gets accomplished so the antis try to punish gun owners by making nonsense laws and convinving people they are trying to do something to stop viol…
  • Sorry I posted my other comment in the wrong thread.  Because I have limited internet use I compose my comments off line and then posted it in the wrong thread.The point I was trying to get across is that my training teaches me that drawing my gun w…
  •         As far as women go, more and more women are getting their conceal carry weapon permits to protect themselves.  I think more because of kidnappers and rapists.  I think a lot of women have a fear of reporting their companions to the police.  …
  • It scares the hell out of me too but probably for different reasons.  This may sound crazy but I think we need to arm all law abiding people that are trained with guns and take the guns away from criminals.  We could call it Gun Control Day.  We cou…
  • Just knowing that you care is helpful to me.  Thanks for the response.  If it helps, I keep my guns and riffles locked in a secure safe when not in use.  Nothing is scarier to me than if a criminal or child or someone who doesn't understand guns wou…
  • I think there are many benefits to guns beside hunting.  I bought my first handgun out of fear because of terrorist, crime and living very rurally.  It has been a godsend to me.  Because I want to be proficient with it I started practicing with it a…
  • I am not trying to win an argument or cause nauseum and I respect your argument.  I am trying to learn by it.  I think this topic is worthy of a discussion where we express our opinions. I am guilty of assuming you are from the USA(where I live) and…
  • I wasn't implying you were attaching the second amendment just people in general are attacking it more lately.I don't understand the "less guns less killing theory" because I think more people want guns for protection than they do for murder. I know…
  • Do I have to be a fool to believe those greedy politicians care about protecting my 2nd amendment rights.  The politicians couldn't get the money from gun manufactures if they didn't.  I would think.  So by giving the money to the politicians that s…
  • I think to make an accurate/educated comparison we have to consider # of pools to # of pool deaths and # of guns to # of gun deaths or deaths from people with pools VS  deaths from people with guns but then we would have to start banning people :-).…
  • We tried gun free zones in schools and found out they don't work for saving lives.  I don't see why someone would think students would be more dangerous in schools with guns than on the streets.
  • Thanks for your question and welcome to Gun Control Forums.  Usually when you here of pool or boat deaths it involves one person.  Lately the shootings have been multiple deaths. I think people are more sensitized to gun deaths for that reason.  I t…
  • I think there is so much crime in this country (US)  because people are afraid or don't want to report crimes to police.  If you are trying to be a responsible citizen and report a criminal there is a good chance the criminal  will take revenge.  Mo…
  • tangascootac  Thanks for clearing that up.  I knew AR didn't stand for "automatic rifle" but I didn't know it stood for ArmaLite.  A simple google search confirmed that for me .  I here many people say nobody needs a AR. I wonder if they think it me…
  • The NRA is protecting our right to protect our selves against gun violence.  
  • After much more thought on this topic I have come to the realization that if I could not escape a violent attack with a gun I would attack it. We are taught to fire until the threat is neutralized.  I am not saying there is not a way to stop violenc…
  • I don't know why anybody who is capable and legally able to carry a gun wouldn't.  I understand that some people fear guns or do not have the physical or mental capability or are legally not allowed. They should not.I also feel safer around people w…
  • I feel best having a gun on me.  What  scares me is not having it like when I have to go to a gun free zone.
  • We would have to find other ways to defend our selves or commit crimes.  They could be worse or better but they would probably kill and murder depending whos hands they were in.
  • I wasn't here so don't blame me.;)

  • Contrary to what most people here think of when they think of unharmful guns, I think of Air Soft.guns (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airsoft).  I have never tried one but they seem like a lot of fun and practice ( probably not the kind of lesson kh…
