- I guess the key word is "criminals". I am here in Colorado and James Holmes (The theater shooter) "DID" follow the law when purchasing his vast arsenal. The problem was that because he wasn't a criminal no "flags" came up...a student with his only brush being a speeding ticket. Changing laws will not change a thing since law abiding citizens will still be able to purchase weapons legally, and "criminals" will still be able to purchase weapons illegally since they don't use the same source to by as law abiding citizens.Jul 27, 2012
- that is true. But logic goes both ways. By the logic of the other side of this argument cars, knives, chemicals, or any other thing that can be used to kill a human being should be made illegal or be highly restricted. People will murder each other It is unavoidable. If you want to start restricting things that kill people how about alcohol, tobacco, sugar, MacDonald's food, swimming pools, or pollution? Prohibition does nothing but put money and control over prohibited things into the hands of criminals. So unless you feel like handing the country over to organized crime like we did in the 1920's I think there needs to be a little less reactionary fear mongering and a few more actual solutions (such as; more prevention through counselling/medication and more attention paid by our vast population of derelict and unobservant parents and teachers)Jul 27, 2012
- Straight to the crux of the issue. If every place had open carry, I imagine politeness would make a resounding resurgence in modern culture.Jul 27, 2012
- Definitely. One think we know all sociopaths care about is themselves.Jul 27, 2012
- Amen. The criminals I worry about are the ones with badges and arrest powers. Getting rid of the guns would just leave the public more vulnerable to that lotJul 27, 2012
