Now that our membership has changed quite a bit, I'm curious where we stand ideologically. In seeking the right balance between public safety and the right of emergency self-defense, what kinds of weapons do you think ought to be legal? Pick the answer that is the closest fit for your views, even if it's not a perfect fit.

The type of weapon is not the point.

I just approved a dozen new members. Welcome, newcomers! Please feel free to introduce yourselves and say a little about your background and why you're interested in the topic of guns.

I've been silent for an awfully long time, but I'm going to try bring things back a bit. To that end:

Imagine two adults live in the same household. Both are legally eligible to own firearms. One wants one, and the other is insistent on not bringing a firearm into a home that is, after all, theirs as well.

If they both continually press the issue, should the gun ultimately stay or go? Should the law choose who wins, and who should it choose? Are there other factors to consider?

Something to think about.

When an expectant woman feels the first kicks of the being inside her, she is likely to think of it as fully a baby already even though it is, scientifically and legally speaking, still a fetus. A woman who has decided to get an abortion will instead think of it as a sign of the urgency of removing the tissue from her body. But is it, at that exact moment, a baby or mere tissue? The woman's intent to keep it or abort may alter its future, but not it's present state. So which group of women are to be legally contradicted?

Forbes says ObamaCare is increasing individual insurance premiums by 41%. Is this a temporary market fluctuation, or a taste of things to come?

Why do people own guns in America? The top reason by a margin of 24 percentage points is "Personal safety/protection."

I suppose no one is ever going to answer "to commit crimes," though.
