    That could be a dangerous combination. Not as bad as cheap Tequila and orange juice,.. but still dangerous.

    Google it.

    I've seen what happens w/ gun related violence & have taken part one on one on many occasions in country.
    So- I feel I've earned the right to talk about it. Have you?
    My expertise is long guns- always was. Not much of a hand gun guy. I own 2 handguns- a 25 cal baby Browning & a S&W 357 model 66. I have no desire to have a CCW.
    I do own many rifles- a few I won't talk about. Some I collect, some I shoot.
    All are locked in a gun safe.
    I have no plans on shooting small school children.

    That same thing could be said of a few of the conservs on here as well.

    Of course, present company excluded.

    Just because you have shot and killed people and are a member of some gun organization does not entitle you to exclusive rights to be the only viable voice allowed to discuss this gun topic.

    Thats just silly. If we had that same attitude for everything then there would never be any progress.

    I ask you to just think about the above statement for a few moments.

    And I asked for your solution but have yet to see it.
    I've never said that we shouldn't do anything.

    What I'm saying is that, if we have to DO SOMETHING everytime a tragedy like this happens, we're more likely to do something stupid in the name of doing SOMETHING.

    It seems when called out on your posts stating what you have indeed posted you always reply with the Ole "I never said that arguement".

    But the fact is you DID say it.

    So since you say it is stupid then please explain why a certification process prior to purchasing a semi automatic firearm is in your opinion stupid and why it is a bad idea.

    And again I am still waiting for your solution.

    More accurate reflection.


    Rather than "Doing SOMETHING" I'd MUCH rather that we do the RIGHT thing.

    Now, I'm not for a minute going to claim that I've got all the answers like some here do.


    Mental health is a problem. Better treatment and care for these people would be an excellent place to start.

    mcjo,

    Apparently, your reading comprehension skills and your recollection are very poor.

    I freakin AGREE WITH YOU!


    Now, we move on to this.

    What happens when YOUR system fails?

    What then?

    Our country thanks you for your service in Vietnam but I have to ask you: What do you think makes someone feel they should carry compared to someone like you that “has no desire” to carry? Why is it important to some and not to others?

    There's a lot more than just this.....but I have a feeling that if this is public knowledge that it may already be outdated technology....especially since it has been public since 2004.

    It is a choice,

    What makes some people choose pickup trucks over sports cars?

    What makes some people choose to live in the city versus the country?


    You don't HAVE to understand it, just to accept that freedom involves allowing others to do things that you may not agree with.


    Since concealed carry has been permitted in this country for a good many years, you should easily be able to provide evidence to support your idea that concealed carry doesn't work.

    I'm not a conservative. I'm an East Coast Ultra Conservative.
    I was educated in The Provisions State. The Land Of Steady Habits State. The Nutmeg State. The Constitution State.
    We supplied most of the food & canons for The Revolutionary War. Maybe that's why I defend The Constitution as vehemently as I do.
    So, if I'm full of anything, it's knowledge.
